Track Name: Shit For Brains
Mxrcxl – Shit For Brains

Hey verdict
Chain me up fucking tie me down
Hey beauty
I’m so alone all I get is shit from you
Hey anxiety
In my head in my heart
Hey society
Cover up your tattoos ‘cause you make me fucking sick

Sick
Sick
You make me fucking sick

Hey asshole
You got nothing on me you got shit for brains
Hey critic
Blah blah blah you make me fucking sick

Sick
Sick
You make me so fucking sick

When every dream is a bad dream
When every turn is the wrong turn
When every love is a lost love
When every step is a step down

I so fucking don’t wanna be like you
I so fucking don’t wanna be like you
I so fucking don’t wanna be like you
I so fucking don’t wanna be like you

Sick
Sick
Sick
You make me fucking sick

I so fucking don’t wanna be like you
I so fucking don’t wanna be like you
Track Name: The Damaged One
Mxrcxl – The Damaged One

It’s hollow

This crazy talk
This crazy talk of yours
It’s been puzzling me for all these years
You see I
I listen as you speak
I speak when spoken to
And your crazy talk is all I know
But I
I’d never question your beliefs
‘Cause you
You won’t let me

It’s hollow
Oh
It’s hollow
Oh
It’s hollow
Oh
It’s hollow
Oho oho

I will never love you
Now I will never love you again

Those crazy eyes
Those crazy eyes of yours
Monitor my every move
When I
Tiptoe around the house
With velvet gloves I touch
Too much to make a stop

But I
I’d never question your beliefs
‘Cause you
You won’t let me

It’s hollow
Oh
It’s hollow
Oh
It’s hollow
Oh
It’s hollow
Oho oho

I will never love you
Now I will never love you again



The frustrations
The accusations
And everything that’s yet to come
The refusal
Oh the denial
You’ve always been the damaged one
I turn a deaf ear
I turn a blind eye
To everything that’s yet to come
Like the black sheep Like the pariah
You’ve always been the damaged one

You’ve always been the damaged one
Track Name: In Alarm
Mxrcxl – In Alarm

What the hell
What the hell
What’s going on in here?
Is there something I should know?
I close my eyes and I count
And I count to ten
And when I open them you’re gone
I close my ears and I scream
And I scream at the top of my lungs
Nothing’s what it seems
Friend or foe
Is there something that I should know?

But you tell me to leave it
Just to leave it alone
Yeah you tell me to leave it
On and on again

What the hell
What the hell
What’s going on in here?
Is there something I should know?
I close my eyes and I dream
And I dream up a life of my own
Real enough to believe
I close my ears and I scream
And I scream at the top of my lungs
Nothing’s what it seems
Friend or foe
I don’t know

But you tell me to leave it
Just to leave it alone
Yeah you tell me to leave it
On and on again

On and on as the bridges burn
You got so much left to die for
Put on a smile and put up a fight
You got so much left to die for
To glue your hearth is to break it again
You got so much left to die for
Cross your heart and cross your friends
You got so much left to die for

Just leave it alone

You tell me to leave it
Just to leave it alone
You tell me to leave it
Just to leave it alone

I’m telling you leave it alone

You tell me to leave it
Just to leave it alone
You tell me to leave it
On and on again
Track Name: Oh, The Irony
Mxrcxl – Oh, The Irony

Don’t let the church bells hit me on my funeral

In this world I can scream as loud as I want to
In a world that revolves solely around me
And all the lovers seem to be faking it so real
In this world no one knows just how out of place I feel

Now watch me walk away
Whenever there’s hard times
Watch me walk away

In this world I can scream as loud as your last one
in a world where sex is overrated
And all the lovers seem to live their lives sedated
In this world no one knows how alienated I feel

So watch me walk away
When I fall on hard times
I walk away
I’m leaving you nailed to the ground
As I walk away
Away
Away
Watch me walk away

So now I’m pacing back and forth
In the sinkhole I live in
Breathing, the living dead
With everything in motion
The ever shifting patterns
Are messing with my head
Oh it’s a sad sad thing but it won’t go
It won’t ever go away
With the walls closing in
And my sweat dripping skin
I can see the joke’s on me
I walk away
I need the colors to be less bright
The sounds to be less loud
A little less intense
You see I try real hard, everyday
But I’m a nobody like you
I walk away

Now watch me walk away
Whenever there’s hard times
Watch me walk away
I’m leaving you nailed to the ground
As I walk away
Away
Away
Watch me walk away
I’m leaving you paralyzed
As I walk away
I’m walking right through the door
Watch me as I walk
Away
Away
Watch me walk away
Track Name: You Got It
Mxrcxl – You Got It

Every time I look into your loving eyes
I see a love that no money can buy
One look from you I drift away
I pray that you are here to stay

Anything you want you got it
Anything you need you got it
Anything at all Baby

Every time I hold you I begin to understand
Everything about you tells me I'm your man
I live my life to be with you
There’s no one who can do the things you do

Anything you want you got it
Anything you need you got it
Anything at all Baby

Anything you want you got it
Anything you need you got it
Anything at all

I'm glad to give my love to you
I hope you feel the way I do
Track Name: Where Were You? All Of The Others Were There!
Mxrcxl – Where Were You? All Of The Others Were There!

I am just another guy
With time on his hands
And I fantasize
Easily mistaken for lying
Realizing I wronged you

Where the fuck were you
When I needed you
Right here in my life she said

In my life she said
In my life she said
In my life she said

I show you my appreciation
By leaving you alone
By letting you drown
You see she spits at mirrors
She spits
But my hands are tied

But where the fuck were you when I needed you
Right here in my life she said

In my life she said
In my life she said
In my life she said

In this violent life I lead she said
Please she said
Jesus Christ looks like you
In this pathetic and miserable life of mine
It’s true you know
Jesus really looks like you

So where the fuck were you?
Where the fuck were you?
Where the fuck were you?
Where the fuck…

In my Life
In
My
In my fucking life she said
Track Name: Devoured + Dried Up
Mxrcxl – Devoured + dried up

I drew the short straw
But was over the moon
I shaved my head
Just to color the scene
I hope you will remember
How hard I tried to save myself for you
It was one thing I couldn’t do

I wore a stained shirt
And ragged old jeans
The saddest smile here
You ever did see
These hesitation wounds
She said they will always remind me
Where I from
It was one thing I should have known

What I wanted
What I wanted
What I wanted

I wrapped my arms around her
And we started to fly
For every new day
A body was found
And she gathered them amongst the stars
Like tiny figurines laid out in a row
It was one thing I couldn’t do
One thing I never learned

What I wanted
What I wanted
What I wanted
Track Name: Happy Shooting
Mxrcxl – Happy Shooting

It’s coming down
It' coming down like one big blanket
covering all up
Our hopes and our beliefs
Our phobias and fears

Down
It’s coming down
One big blanket covering all up
Our bread and circuses
Our happiness and such

‘cause this shit will be the death of us all
It grow so damn slow
Blackening your soul
You’ll grow numb
You’ll grow dumb
‘cause this shit will be the death of us all

Now get the fuck right out of my house
‘Cause all my senses tell me to fuck you up real good

Now I’m exactly where you want me
Marching to the right beat
Every art form is a dead one
Every art form is a dead one
But I’ll never accept
As a kid I was taught
Acceptance is a thing for the weak

Exactly where you want me
In line with the lemmings
And every attempt is a failed one
And every attempt is a failed one
But I’ll never accept
As a kid I was taught
Acceptance is a thing for the weak

Do you even get what I say?
Fuck you
Fuck you
Do you even get what I say?
Fuck you
Fuck you
This shit will be the
This shit will be
This shit will be the death of us all
This shit will be the
This shit will be
This shit will be the death of us all
