lyrics

My disposition's like a hand grenade
Come pull the pin, we can celebrate
Feeling the love like a tooth decay
so full of pride that it nauseates
I've got no focus and a mind like a prison
Play the hero and wind up like the victim
Supports are failing, it was never my decision
This is my ride, but I'm headed for collision
‐‐‐
I've got a wit like a razor blade
Got an axe, ready to invade
Money down, time to place your bets
I'm on fire, you've not seen nothing yet
I've got a hammer and a tourniquet
Smacked all my feelings with a bad intent
Now they're open, and they want to vent
I'll bleed them out, if they don't repent
‐‐‐
I'm on the road to where I've never been ‐ to
live too right ‐ too right to live
Haven't felt this right or wrong since
yesterday ‐ to give too much ‐ too much to
give
Starting wars, kicking doors, for my cause, my
therapy ‐ to twist a plot ‐ to plot a twist
If you see me on the floor, just tell me
nothing's wrong
‐‐‐
My disposition's like a hand grenade
Come pull the pin, we can celebrate
Feeling the love like a tooth decay
so full of pride that it nauseates
I've got no focus and a mind like a prison
Play the hero and wind up like the victim
Supports are failing, it was never my decision
This is my ride, but I'm headed for collision
‐‐‐
I'm on the road to where I've never been ‐ to
live too right ‐ too right to live
Haven't felt this right or wrong since
yesterday ‐ to give too much ‐ too much to
give
Starting wars, kicking doors, for my cause, my
therapy ‐ to twist a plot ‐ to plot a twist
If you see me on the floor, don’t ask me
what's this for
‐‐‐
Can't stand to lose at all
Had to weather every storm
You'd think I wouldn't feel at all
Took every beat down and won single‐handed
Perfected every fall
Broke down and hit the wall
Saw the world and felt so absurd
but I rose up again, and I screamed and I
shouted
‐‐‐
So distressed, so frantic
This pain can feel romantic
and when I beg for more
Cut me off, and give me nothing
Rejecting, my madness
Sanity can't be demanded
Cognitive, my instinct
Shatter the world, and try to resist it
‐‐‐
So distressed, so manic
This pain can feel romantic
and when I beg for more
Cut me off, and give me nothing
Rejecting, my madness
Sanity can't be demanded
Cognitive, my instinct
Shatter the world, and try to resist it
‐‐‐
Can't stand to lose at all
Had to weather every storm
You'd think I wouldn't feel at all
Took every beat down and won single‐handed
Perfected every fall
Broke down and hit the wall
Saw the world and felt so absurd
but I rose up again, and I screamed and I
shouted
‐‐‐
So distressed, so manic
This pain can feel romantic
and when I beg for more
Cut me off, and give me nothing
Rejecting, my madness
Sanity can't be demanded
Cognitive, my instinct
Shatter the world, and try to resist it
( I will turn off the world )

about

RIVETHEAD Dallas, Texas

Heavy, grooving, and sometimes melodic metal, laced with the electronic elements of a sci-fi movie soundtrack. If the Blade Runner, Tron, and Mortal Kombat soundtracks were thrown into a musical blender with Metallica, Pantera, Korn, and Fear Factory, you’d get something pretty wicked. It might sound a lot like this. ... more
