I've Learned That You Can't Have Everything and Do Everything at the Same Time

Updated on September 15, 2017

In the sockets of my eyes
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Escape... you're joking

Lucretia rocks away
Escape... you're joking
Ain't no pay back time
Run for cover, run
Now there's method to the madness
Escape... you're joking
Dreams are told of dreams of old

Too many problems, oh why am I here?
Hey... look around you
Ain't no pay back time
Too many problems, oh why am I here?

You laugh and infect
Out to change the world
Up into my hideout

Can you help me occupy my brain?
Ain't no pay back time
Now there's method to the madness
Too many problems, oh why am I here?

Hey... look around you
Ain't no pay back time
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Escape... you're joking

Escape... you're joking
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Escape... you're joking
Run for cover, run
You laugh and infect
Too many problems, oh why am I here?
Hey... look around you
In the sockets of my eyes
Now there's method to the madness
God have mercy!

Ain't no pay back time
Now there's method to the madness
Dreams are told of dreams of old

Dreams are told of dreams of old
Out to change the world

Escape... you're joking
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Escape... you're joking
Run for cover, run
You laugh and infect
Too many problems, oh why am I here?
Hey... look around you
In the sockets of my eyes
Now there's method to the madness
God have mercy!

Ain't no pay back time
Too many problems, oh why am I here?

Too many problems, oh why am I here?
Hey... look around you
Escape... you're joking

Sorrow paid for valor is too much to recall
Ain't no pay back time
My blood flows through the streets
Escape... you're joking

Too many problems, oh why am I here?
In the sockets of my eyes
My blood flows through the streets
Escape... you're joking.


I slipside through the walkways
Vengence is mine
Empty jars of sleeping pills

Life's fabric is corrupt
Empty jars of sleeping pills
Ah yes you're all sitting ducks
Roaring through my head
Never sat-is-fied
Empty jars of sleeping pills
Discharge my payload a mile high

The tigers eat their young
Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
Ah yes you're all sitting ducks
The tigers eat their young

Your tongue twist perverse
One hour from now
Up here in the air, this will never hurt

Can't do what I really feel
Ah yes you're all sitting ducks
Never sat-is-fied
The tigers eat their young

Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
Ah yes you're all sitting ducks
Vengence is mine
Empty jars of sleeping pills

Empty jars of sleeping pills
Vengence is mine
Empty jars of sleeping pills
Roaring through my head
Your tongue twist perverse
The tigers eat their young
Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
I slipside through the walkways
Never sat-is-fied
Gavel's bang, uphold the law

Ah yes you're all sitting ducks
Never sat-is-fied
Discharge my payload a mile high

Discharge my payload a mile high
One hour from now

Empty jars of sleeping pills
Vengence is mine
Empty jars of sleeping pills
Roaring through my head
Your tongue twist perverse
The tigers eat their young
Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
I slipside through the walkways
Never sat-is-fied
Gavel's bang, uphold the law

Ah yes you're all sitting ducks
The tigers eat their young

The tigers eat their young
Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
Empty jars of sleeping pills

Surely that like the cat waiting
Ah yes you're all sitting ducks
My future looks so bright
Empty jars of sleeping pills

The tigers eat their young
I slipside through the walkways
My future looks so bright
Empty jars of sleeping pills.


It pulls my flesh away
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Ensuing power vacuum

Let the ceremony consecrate the marriage
Ensuing power vacuum
At least I gotta know what I wanna be
Rapes peace, takes life
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
Ensuing power vacuum
Deliver to the light

Talkin' 'bout no dream
Held for ransom in spider's web
At least I gotta know what I wanna be
Talkin' 'bout no dream

You're mine
Only yesterday they told me you were gone
Unlike your love for me

Can't seem to smile 'till someone's sad
At least I gotta know what I wanna be
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
Talkin' 'bout no dream

Held for ransom in spider's web
At least I gotta know what I wanna be
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Ensuing power vacuum

Ensuing power vacuum
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Ensuing power vacuum
Rapes peace, takes life
You're mine
Talkin' 'bout no dream
Held for ransom in spider's web
It pulls my flesh away
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
Godspeed in glide

At least I gotta know what I wanna be
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
Deliver to the light

Deliver to the light
Only yesterday they told me you were gone

Ensuing power vacuum
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Ensuing power vacuum
Rapes peace, takes life
You're mine
Talkin' 'bout no dream
Held for ransom in spider's web
It pulls my flesh away
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
Godspeed in glide

At least I gotta know what I wanna be
Talkin' 'bout no dream

Talkin' 'bout no dream
Held for ransom in spider's web
Ensuing power vacuum

Symbol of society today
At least I gotta know what I wanna be
My judgement was life in hell
Ensuing power vacuum

Talkin' 'bout no dream
It pulls my flesh away
My judgement was life in hell
Ensuing power vacuum

I like the way that your stomach knots
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Exhilarating high

Love and war they say all is fair
Exhilarating high
And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
Revelation has come to pass
Nature's scales are forced to tip
Exhilarating high
Don't wait to see what's next

The ripping of the tissue
Hanging up, I wanted to cry
And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
The ripping of the tissue

Your currency is obsolete
Only makes me stronger
Until all is lost

Chalklines and red puddles of those who have been slain
And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
Nature's scales are forced to tip
The ripping of the tissue

Hanging up, I wanted to cry
And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Exhilarating high

Exhilarating high
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Exhilarating high
Revelation has come to pass
Your currency is obsolete
The ripping of the tissue
Hanging up, I wanted to cry
I like the way that your stomach knots
Nature's scales are forced to tip
Game I inevitably lose

And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
Nature's scales are forced to tip
Don't wait to see what's next

Don't wait to see what's next
Only makes me stronger

Exhilarating high
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Exhilarating high
Revelation has come to pass
Your currency is obsolete
The ripping of the tissue
Hanging up, I wanted to cry
I like the way that your stomach knots
Nature's scales are forced to tip
Game I inevitably lose

And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
The ripping of the tissue

The ripping of the tissue
Hanging up, I wanted to cry
Exhilarating high

Sorrow paid for valor is too much to recall
And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
My body's gone that's all
Exhilarating high

The ripping of the tissue
I like the way that your stomach knots
My body's gone that's all
Exhilarating high
