# Title Duration
1 Livin' In Sin
Once again my friend
Storm clouds are rolling in
Broken inside myself
Can't seem to break this trend, Can't break it!

And I've seen it all
And I've walked it tall
Lived in this sin
Where do I begin?

Caught between my lies
My life for worthless lies
Shedding my skin to begin
A life that I don't know how to live in
I can't take it!

And I've seen it all
And I've walked it tall
Lived in this sin
Where do I begin?

I don't know now
Where to go now
I don't know if I'll ever get ahead......no
It's all broken
Not a word spoken
And I don't know how to go out...God help me now

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And I've seen it all
And I've walked it tall
Lived in this sin
Livin' in sin
Livin' in sin
Livin' in sin
Livin' in sin
Where do I begin?
2 Speak
Free? You better love me
And Hide or runaway
from all your yesterday's

Chorus:

Speak the truth, or make your peace some other way
Oh Yeah, Yeah
I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me
Oh, Will speak to me

In way beyond your controlling mind (mind)
And no more believing in all your precious lies
Yeah

Chorus:

Speak the truth or make your peace some other way
Oh Yeah, Yeah
I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me
Oh Will speak to me
Speak the truth or make your peace some other way
Oh Yeah, Yeah
I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me
Will speak to me

In finding balance between lies and trust
they'll never be a better
source than to speak your truth
or make your peace in some other way

Chorus:

Speak the truth or make your peace some other way
Oh Yeah, Yeah
I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me
Oh Will speak to me
Speak the truth or make your peace some other way
Oh Yeah, Yeah
I never knew, but I believe that your trust in me
Oh Will speak to me

Speak!

Oh Speak!

Speak!

Oh Speak!

Speak!
3 The Enemy
Hey Mister backstabbin' son of a bitch
you're livin' in a world that'll soon be dyin'
and I know everybody knows you try to be like me
but even at your best as a man you couldn't equal half of me.

I am realizing that everybody's lost their simple ways
and now that it's here I see it all so clearly
I've come face to face with the enemy, the enemy.

You, your another shit talkin' punk to me.
You're a living inspiration for what I never wanna be,
and I see you've been blinded by what you believe
And now back up and sit down, shut up and act like you need to be.

I am realizing that everybody's lost their simple ways
and now that it's here I see it all so clearly,
I've come face to face with the enemy, the enemy.

come to me, come to me
the enemy come to me, come to me

So predicting you're the reason why I lie
simple decision took me too much time to fly
Oh, checkmate!

I am realizing that everybody's lost their simple ways
and now that it's here I see it all so clearly,
I've come face to face with the enemy, the enemy

come to me
4 Shine Down
So tired sleeping through the day
Bloodshot eyes and the sweat from my body
And I picked my head up yesterday
Found no reason or hope left inside of me

But I still believe in immortal love
And I know there's someone above

Shinedown, don't take it away from me, no
And I know you know how, yeah
Shinedown, just give me a chance to feel it
It's taken forever to get me off the ground

A dead silence overwhelming me
Day and night takes its toll on my sanity
And I know I've been away too long
All these years I've been hiding
A feeling I'm coming strong

But I still believe in immortal love
And I know there's someone that's up above
Show me a path to find my way
And give me a reason to pray

Shinedown, don't take it away from me, no
And I know you know how, yeah
Shinedown, just give me a chance to feel it
It's taken forever to get me off the ground, yeah

Shine down, don't take it away from me, no
And I know you know how, yeah
And shinedown, just give me a chance to feel it
It's taken forever to get me off the ground
Shinedown
Shinedown
Oh, shine down
Oh baby, yeah, yeah, yeah
Shinedown
Oh, shinedown
Oh, shinedown
Oh baby shinedown
5 Hollow
One more step and I could fall away
If it happened would it matter
And I can't tell if I should go or stay.
Same old picture feels so hollow.
How can anybody know what's best for me
Another page I turn in shame.
And my decisions brought me to my knees,
I needed someone to blame.

I feel so hollow
I feel so hollow
Time to do what's best for me I believe I can change.

Once upon a time in broken dreams.
Reflections that I can't face.
So hold your breath and make a wish for me.
Take me to a better place.
Time always seems to be passing by
It never waits for me
If I could do it all one more time, I wouldn't change a thing.

I feel so hollow, I feel so hollow
I feel so hollow, I feel so hollow

Time to do what's best for me I believe I can change.
6 No Rest For The Wicked
Walked a fine line slipped the edge, under me.
Rise above a suicide, taking it outta me.
Got a feeling, it's going far away, yeah.
Licking the wounds from yesterday.

Gonna fly, takin' my time, strip down to nothing.
Gonna try, but there's no rest for the wicked.

Been through the skin of a dragon a thousand times.
Yet every day I live for you, still I'm not alive.
Got a feeling, I'm gonna fall away.
Gimme a sign one reason that I should stay.

Gonna fly, takin' my time, strip down to nothing.
Gonna try, but there's no rest for the wicked.
Gonna fly, take my time, strip down to nothing.
Gonna try, but there's no rest for the wicked.

Are you ready to know just who I am?
Do you think you can make me a better man?
Crack me open, expose me to your ways?
But Ignorance and arrogance are my ways. Oh yea.
No rest for the wicked baby!

Gonna fly, take my time, strip down to nothing.
Gonna try, but there's no rest for the wicked.
Gonna fly, take my time, strip down to nothing.
Gonna try, but there's no rest for the wicked.
7 Bleeding Me
Way, way down inside there's a hollow soul
An emptiness shadows tomorrow
And I find it hard to breathe for me in your company
Seems I've been taken for granted

And you're breaking and bleeding me down to nothing
It's tearing me down
You're breaking me and bleeding me down to nothing
Yeah!

Maybe, this time baby it's meant to be
No more suffocating you or me, oh yeah
And I'd pay the price but you sentencing me to life
And I feel I put in my time

And you're breaking and bleeding me down to nothing
It's tearing me down
You're breaking me and bleeding me down to nothing
Again

You're breaking me
And bleeding me
Again
You're bleeding me, you're bleeding me

And you're breaking and bleeding me down to nothing
You're tearing me down
You're breaking me and bleeding me down to nothing
You're tearing me, tearing me down again
Tearing me down again
You're breaking me and bleeding me
Bleeding me again
8 Voodoo Too
(I'm not the one who's so far away)
(I'm not the one who's so far away)

Open your eyes, a chill passes you by.
A premonition coming strong.
Rich with desire, a superstition in disguise.
Draws me into where I belong.

Have you ever wondered why in a dream you can touch a falling sky?
Or fly to the heavens that watch over you, telling me it's all voodoo.
Voodoo too.

Instill the body, so warm with every breath.
Dance to a vision so seductive.
Rain down upon me, it cleanses me with every drip.
A scent you've promised for the nourishment that I've been gifted.

Have you ever wondered why in a dream you can touch a falling sky?
Or fly to the heavens that watch over you, telling me it's all voodoo.
Have you ever wondered why in a dream you can touch a falling sky?
Or fly to the heavens that watch over you, telling me it's all voodoo.
Voodoo too.

Voodoo too, it's all voodoo too.

Have you ever wondered why in a dream you can touch a falling sky?
Or fly to the heavens that watch over you, telling me it's all voodoo.
Have you ever wondered why in a dream you can touch a falling sky?
Or fly to the heavens that watch over you, telling me it's all voodoo.
Voodoo too.

It's just voodoo too, it's all voodoo too, it's just what you do.
9 Temptation
It crawls down deep inside
Without a pulse or a will to die
Not known to sympathize
And now it takes what it takes
And let's the feeling suffocate
It's nothing new it'll get it's way
Another thing that I see is how it gets inside of me
And tears away my life

It's time to love, It's time to hate
It's coming face to face trying to desecrate
No time at all to break away
Temptation, still got a hold on me

It's awake even when you sleep
It breaths without a heartbeat
Making me incomplete
And now I know what I know
Expect the demon down below
To surface through my mortal soul
And now it looks to be smiling as it's killing me
Day to day, eye to eye

It's time to love, It's time to hate
It's coming face to face trying to desecrate
No time at all to break away
Temptation, still got a hold on me (x4)
10 Mama
Oh mama what have I gone and done?
With all these years that I've been gone,
My life changed me way too fast.
I don't know if I could last.

Help me find my way, and mama save me.
Help me find today, mama please come and save me, Oh.

Oh mama if you could've only seen,
Everything I've done and where I've been.
If only one thing I would ask,
Why did you let me grow up so goddamn fast?

Help me find my way, and mama save me.
Help me find today, mama please come and save me, Oh.

There's nothing more that you can do.
It's gone beyond what you can help me through.
An emptyness has covered me.
Oh mama come and save me.

Help me find my way, and mama save me.
Help me find today, mama please come and save me, Oh.
Help me find my way, and mama save me.
Help me find today, mama please come and save me, Oh.

There's nothing more that you can do.
It's gone beyond what you can help me through.
An emptyness has covered me.
Oh mama come and save me.
Oh mama come and save.
Oh save me... no!
Oh please mama save...
11 One Rainy Day
oh man, I'm tired and lonely
Again, why must it be
A man is drowning slowly
And he can't keep above, gone way too deep

Open skies are falling, tears are coming down
Like a drop of rain falls to the ocean and comes back around
One rainy day

Oh so many times I should have crawled when I went running by
And since then I've been left feeling traumatized
Raped and drained of an innocence
A gift we've lost over time
And still I gaze through this one rainy day
Alone with no one by my side

Open skies are falling, tears are coming down
Like a drop of rain falls to the ocean and comes back around
I swear I've given, I've given you all I can
Never will you ever make me feel this way again no
On this one rainy day

Open skies are falling, tears are coming down
Like a drop of rain falls to the the ocean and comes back around
One rainy day (x3)
It's been just one rainy day
