Butcher's Hook

Album: All Hope Is Gone (2008)
  • Contrite, commercial, arrogance, leprosy
    Consume the bitch, the fucker, mindless, like a child
    For pity's sake, I've had all that I can take
    We try, but in the end we'll see
    There are no more codes
    Only who is shit and who's still free
    I was gonna change the world with honor and aggression
    No one listened no one cared
    All they saw was misdirection

    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?

    I don't want you anymore (I don't want you anymore)
    I don't need you anymore (I don't need you anymore)
    Fingerprint of God, your new religions covet
    This vessel wasn't built to last
    But I will live forever, you'll never have to say surrender
    Because you're so part of it
    My total honesty has no place for tomorrow
    Guilty pleasures give me pain
    Tell my people I can't follow

    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?

    You'll never censor me, you'd better cherish me
    My reason has a voice, freedom's gone but we'll always have a choice
    My present future tense, it doesn't make much sense
    I'm coming after you, fuck you all I'm the only point of view

    Violence and dollar signs, another processed piece of shit
    You hide your fault in diamonds and give away the only
    Cost, you can't delay the inevitable
    Lost, don't understand the incredible path
    I'm losing ground, but I won't care when I go down

    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again?
    I'm giving up again? Writer/s: CHRIS FEHN, CHRISTOPHER FEHN, COREY TAYLOR, CRAIG JONES, JAMES ROOT, MICHAEL CRAHAN, MICKAEL THOMSON, NATHAN JORDISON, PAUL GRAY, SID WILSON, SIDNEY WILSON
