I read the papers and I know which way you're going.

I watch the T.V. and it shows how little you're knowing.

I call you up when you're around but you don't hear me.

You hear the words but still don't hear, you don't even know me.



Wake up, this ain't no vacation, she cries, for my reputation, hatred has

never looked that good on you.

I know, she's in ovulation, can't see, the real destination, hatred has

never looked that good on you.



Why sit around while you look down and dance with junkies?

Makes you look weak, makes you look pale, makes you fall down, makes you




You're raised and you can't see hate on the inside.

Wake up. Your ignorance is free, hate on the outside.



Keep your arms and hands inside the car at all times.

Time to shave your head and put your Doc Marten boots on!!


E-mail me with any questions, comments or changes. I hope you enjoy the tab!
