Godsmack Aug 25, 1998

Recorded on a shoestring budget over one weekend in Boston, this is the debut CD that started it all and won them the attention of many record labels.

# Title Duration
1 Moon Baby
Let's take a blast to the moon, baby.
(I'll sit around wishing you well).
How I'm craving you, yeah.

Every time I'm near you
(I always wanna swallow you down).
I'll be right here if you need me.

"In my life, I'll need you here.
Don't ask why I'll never disappear.
Why is it every day
That I feel the pain?
Oh yeah..."

Let's take a trip to the stars far away.
Where were you when I was down?
Staring into the dead (dead).

My pain is caused by my pleasure
(and my soulmate lives in your body).
I can't get you out of my head,
It never goes away!

"In my life, I'll need you here.
Don't ask why I'll never disappear.
In your eyes, you can bid me farewell.
Don't ever try to understand the situation!
Why is it every day
That I feel the pain?
(it always comes when I least expect it,
when I'm looking for love
always seem to be regretting it.)
Why is it every day
That I feel the pain?
Oh yeah..."

(No, Please God)

(Don't be sad that i feel this way
I'd rather just keep makin' the same fuckin'
Mistakes over and over and over again
Please, can't this fucking mistake be over?)

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Day to day

I'm doing the best I ever did
I'm doing the best that I can
I'm doing the best I ever did...

I don't need to
fantasize.
You are my pet
all the time.

I don't mind if
you go blind.
You get what you get
until you're through with mine

I feel for you...
Better fuckin go away
I will behave...
You better go away!

I feel for you...

4 Time Bomb
I am in a living hell, makes me wonder if I'm alive.
Can't seem to bring myself to figure out why.
And I shove, and I pull away to the things that I call you every day.
I can't seem to break you down, but I know I'll come around.

I feel your pins,
Through my eyes,
Piercing me...

Lie down in all this piss, you drink it from me every day.
I live in a world of shit, been left here to die.
Sometimes I realize my mind was meant to go away.
Never have I seen your god, so why should I believe in faith?

I feel your pins,
Through my eyes,
Piercing me through the time

Another time bomb...

I am in a living hell, makes me wonder if I'm alive.
Can't seem to bring myself to figure out why.
And I shove, and I pull away to the things that I call you every night.
I can't seem to break you down, but I know I'll come around.

I feel your pins,
Through my eyes,
Piercing me through the time

I never find the time to find another place,
I'm a bad motherfucker who lives it every day.
You never look at me now, you never look me in the face.
I'm a timebomb, timebomb, baby.

I can't find the time to find a place
I'm a bad motherfucker who lives it every day.
You never look at me now, you never look me in the face.
I'm a timebomb, timebomb, yeah.

What am I waiting for?
(What am i waiting for?)

You never look at me now, you never look me in the face.

5 Bad Religion
(Spoken) The word of God it says, that we will recieve praise of God. God will begin to speak forth. Our righteousness is of Him, sayeth the Lord.


Get Back!

Can you feel I'm not like you anymore?
I can't see, I can't breathe!
See you quiver like the dogs on the streets.
Looking down on as I beat you.

It's a bad religion
From a broken nation
It's a contradiction

And I can't take it anymore, Yeah!

Who's to say I won't like you anyway?
Take a deep breath I'm alive.
Can you hear me? I'm alive inside you.
Agony creeps up behind you.

[repeat chorus]

And I can't take it any fuckin' way!

[repeat chorus]

Can you feel it?
I've gotta live with it every day.
And I can't take the pressure,
I'm goin' insane. Now go away!
Go away!

(Spoken) Now if you start praising God, wherever you are. I don't care where you are, I don't care what's happening, just begin to praise Him, begin to praise Him and praise Him and praise Him and praise Him and worship Him
6 Immune
Patience... is how I'm living today,
I lie before you, stressing me out again.
My life is twisted... twisted like your own brains.
I can't accept that, I can't accept that again.

"Yeah, face it.
No, try it.
Yeah, immune to what you are."

A superstition... jinxing me like the black cat inside you.
It's only what I crave.
A system breakdown...
Can you remember your name?
Did you forget you?
Did you forget your identity?

[repeat chorus]

What's the matter with your own ways?
Why are you freakin' me out again?
What's the matter with your own mind?
You can't be yourself anymore when you're suckin' out my life from under me.

[repeat chorus twice]

[solo]

Face it...
Face it...
yeah, face it...
yeah, try-y-y-y-y-y...
7 Someone In London
8 Get Up, Get Out!
Why are you laughing as if you're my friend?
I'm gonna slap you again, and again, and again.

Oooh, I like you better when you go away!

"Gotta get up,
Gotta get out.
You gotta get up,
Yeah, you gotta go away!
Gotta get up,
Gotta get out.
Yeah, yeah, yeah...

You were the love of my life for a day, yeah.
And I kinda thought that you feel the same way...
No way!

Oooh, I like you better when...
Oooh, I like you better when you go away!

[repeat chorus 2 1/2 times]

[Solo]

Consider you a figment of my imagination,
But will you ever go away?

[repeat chorus 4 times]
9 Now Or Never
Can't remember my name,
Can't remember at all.
Finding you from past times, I think...
How did we ever fall? Yeah...

Never knowing the answers.
Calling myself names.
Now is not the question for us.
Will it ever be again?

Why don't you just fly,
Fly to me!
And how long,
How long will you wait for me?
Never?

"Now or never again!
(Repeat)"

Feel me up inside you,
How you quiver and shake.
Can I rape you back to my life?
Will you trust me again?
Now or never...

And I'll never let you down,
So fly to me!
And how long,
How long can I wait?

Why don't you just fly,
Fly to me!
And how long,
How long will you wait for me?
Never?

[repeat chorus]

Never, never, never...
Now or never...
Never again.
[repeat]

Fly, fly, fly, fly...
Fly, fly, fly, yeah!

[solo]

Why don't you just fly,
Fly to me!
And how long,
How long will you wait for me?

Now or never, never again
[repeat 4 times]
10 Stress
You think your head's achin?
I'm not finished yet.
I won't be mistaken,
How soon you forget.
Take back what you said,
And I'll spare you pain.
Then you can spare me all your fuckin' lies!

I can't wait...
I can't wait
To get away!

And I ask you 20 more times,
Don't you hear a thing?
You're testing my patience again,
Careful for your sake!
Take a walk with me there,
And I'll show you pain.
But who said you can open up your mouth?

I can't wait...
I can't wait
To get away!

Sometimes I just feel like I need to get away.
A place where I can be by myself, all alone.
I kinda lay down in the back yard,
Watch the leaves fall down on my face.
It helps me become sane again.

Thoughts are pissed away, and for a minute I couldn't swallow.

I can remember when.
you didn't really care about anything.
Can I remember what I did,
Did it matter?.

Thoughts are pissed away, and for a minute I couldn't swallow.
If you think that I'm the one who'll be here come tomorrow.

You took me in.
In time...
I'll be here.
Not waiting, not waiting for you anymore.
I love you... I love you anyway.
Is it so rare, that I've been sleeping with the dead?
11 Situation
Lying in my sweat, drying my tears.
Waiting for you, I am.
Making me feel like I don't care... I Don't care!
Yeah...

"This situation
In my head, head, head.
Will this situation
Never end?"

How can I feel if I can't breathe?
What we once had will never be again.
Yeah...

[Repeat chorus]

And I cannot take it anymore!

I really like what you can give me,
But I don't know where I'm standing right now, not yet.
And I really think that you can hear me,
Why you're not turning this around,
I'll never know, I'll never know, I said I'll never know!

Never, never, never...
No, yeah, yeah, yeah...

[Solo]

This situation...
This situation...
This situation...
Yeah.
12 Voodoo
I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins.
Never did I wanna be here again,
And I don't remember why I came.

Candles raise my desire,
Why I'm so far away.
No more meaning to my life,
No more reason to stay.

Freezing, feeling,
Breathe in, breathe in...
I'm coming back again...

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins.
Never did I wanna be here again,
And I don't remember why I came.

Hazing clouds rain on my head,
Empty thoughts fill my ears.
Find my shape by the moonlight,
Why my thoughts aren't so clear.

Demons dreaming,
Breathe in, breathe in...
I'm coming back again...

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins.
Never did I wanna be here again,
And I don't remember why I came.[repeat 4 times]


Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo, voodoo.
[repeat]


So far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
I'm not the one who's so far away...
