The Bottom of Me
c. '12 Vlayman Produx

Lookin' deep, tryna see,
What is there, at the bottom of me,
Way down there, is only black,
Makes me wanna, hafta, step on back
This something, I won't miss,
Standin' on the edge, lookin down the abyss.

A thing is what it is and not, something else.

Lookin' down, tryna understand,
Who it is, that I am,
What is there and if I can.

A thing is what it is and not, something else,
A man is who he is and not, someone else.

Lookin' deep, tryna see,
What is there, at the bottom of me,
Is this the best I can ever be?

A thing is what it is and not, something else,
A man is who he is and not, someone else,
A thing is what it is and not, something else,
A thing is what it is and not, something else,
A man is who he is and not, someone else.
A man is who he is and not, someone else.

One God Further
c. '12 Vlayman

You think you been searching for who's answering
I look at you and think you just been dancing
You think you're doing everything alright
I think you might be OK just for tonight
CH:
I never
I said I never wanted to burn her
But she was lookin' for
Just One God Further

You paid a penny to get into the temple
You never bothered to look at the burnin' steeple
You thought everything was in the holy water
You didn't know they led the lambs to slaughter
CH
You thought you was gonna go to heaven
All they thought about was gettin' even
CH 4x

Universal
c. '12 Vlayman

Speechifyin' don' t really mean you know what yer talkin' about
If it's important, just one sound is all ya really gotta shout
shout it out

All yer cryin' don't really mean that you know what it is to regret
And if yer dyin' then you really oughta look forward to it
Shout it out

There ain't nothin' universal
There ain't nothin' that applies to all
And if life is just rehearsel
You better believe we done it all
We done it all

All yer laughin' don't really mean you understand what's been
happenin'
And if yer laughin' at us then you really can't be understandin'
nothin'
Shout it out

Under the Bridge
c. '12 Vlayman ass't by Grankspoine

(G Gdf )
Under the bridge there is a place to stay (G Gdf Gdfdfg 4x)
You can bring all your pretty balloons
Under the bridge is where you learn to say
That you don't really need any more room
Than you have
Under the bridge (G Gdf )
Than you have
Under the bridge

Fill
Over the hill is the place to go
You can bring all your petty problems
Over the hill is the place you'll know
That you got no reason for sobbin'
Than you had
Under the bridge
Than you had
Under the bridge

Fill 2x
Some may say that we have to leave (A Aea A Aegega 2x)
Some may say that we have to bleed
Some may pray that we fill our need (G Gdg A Aegega 2x)
Some may stay
Under the bridge 4x (G Gdf )

Fill
Under the bridge there is a place to stay (G Gdf Gdfdfg 4x)
Under the bridge, let's go today
Under the bridge 2x

(A Aea)

Schadenfreude
c. '12 Vlayman

Spent every second of every minute of every day
Thinkin' about the way you always had to have yer say
In my face you put me in my place you always got yer way

Schadenfreude 3x

Went to the top, you know it was a hard climb
Worked my way on up, but then I ran out of time
Something was rotten and I fell to the bottom, you always got yer way

Schadenfreude 6x

Ran every race that a man with one leg could run,
Played every game even though I never had no fun
Competition was a tradition to be number one, I never got my way

Schadenfreude 9x

Sinkin' Fast
c. 12 Vlayman

Seeing how you failed yet again
Believin' you ain't goin' nowhere, fast

Feelin' that you're in need of some direction
Needin' to understand how I tied myself to your mast

Ch: It ain't the thinkin'
Ain't even the drinkin'
We're sinkin' fast

Seeing how we can't seem to last
Believin' we ain't goin' nowhere, fast
Ch

Feelin' how you're fallin' apart again, about to crash
Bein' that you ain't got too many friends, without the cash

Seein' that you're in need of protection at last
Needin' to understand how it's the end, and so fast

a re-do of "Sinkin' Faster", inspired by Delso

Smilin' Like Sin
c. 12 Vlayman

She wears that silk like she was born in it
I need to touch her hair
There's no denying the scent of it
I need to keep her here

I got to let her in
Let 'er in again
I got to let her in
She's smilin' like sin


She wears the gold like it's the cheap shit
She needs platinum to match her hair
I really thought that I was over it
Until she touched ss
right there

Some women seem born to have children
Some women seem born to always win
Some women make me wanna run the other way
Some women make me wanna go again

And you know how it is they're goin'

You can't get enuff of the stuff
You can't get enuff of enuff

And I know where it is y'all are goin'
And I know everything worth knowin'

I can't get enuff of the stuff
I can't get enuff of enuff
(just like) ?You can't get enuff of the stuff
You can't get enuff of enuff

They can't get enuff of the stuff

Why are you parading?
Why are you parading?

I can tell that you think you got it figured out
I can tell you think you've got yerself a plan

Why are you invading?
Why are you invading?
What's the occasion?

I can tell you know all about the risks you're taking
I can tell you think it's worthit in the end

Why are you invading?
What's the occasion?
What's the occasion?
Why are you parading?
What's the occasion?

Why are you Crusading?
What's the occasion?

Sad Old Train
c. '12 Vlayman

Limpin' over the mountain pass,
with far too much -draggin',
I can feel her deep fatigue,
From here in this cabin,

There weren't nothin' else to say,
that day

Oo-OOO here she comes again
here she comes again

You packed yer bags,
with every thing you came with,
There wasn't that much,
And you was done real swift

She went and took you away
-
There weren't nothin' else to say,
that day

Oo-OOO here she comes again
here she comes again
here she comes again
That sad old train
SOLO
She went and took you away
-
There weren't nothin' else to say,
, today

Oo-OOO here she comes again
here she comes again
Oo-OOO here she comes again
here she comes again
here she comes again
That sad old train
