The head is shot, the nerves rubbed raw
Like a tooth sharpening cannibal
I'd eat the heart that beats in fear
So it could never keep me here

I'm working on my satellite
If you could help me I might find
A way to make my plea get through
Just beam me back a little proof

I'm tired of feeling
Feeling tired
And I'm feeling
Feeling tired

I'm scratching at these cataracts
To try and see what's still intact
I sold the heart that beats in fear
The road ahead now is desolately clear

I wish I may, I wish I'd find
A way to make these scars feel real
So i could stand and face what's here

I'm tired of feeling
Feeling tired
I'm feeling tired

Mother, won't you hear my desperate cries?
I'm calling in
Mother, won't you hear my desperate crying?
I've been so shut down and I'll admit I'm struggling
Mother, won't you hear my desperate crying?

    General CommentI love the title pun... oh and the rest of the song too :P

    I just had a correction in lyrics. I believe the first verse reads "Like a tooth sharpening a cannonball"

    It fits in with the previous line in that his tooth would be dulled out if he tried to sharpen a cannonball. At least I think so.

    General CommentThat's actually a good question. It's pretty insane how good of a debut album this is. Then again, just look at the guys' pasts. Dave had time to practice in The Curse. Also, he got to study under Dan Yemin in Paint It Black. So did Spider in his six months in Kid Dynamite. Mike's past is my favorite. He was part of Trial By Fire in DC. That group had a bunch of greatly written songs as well. This band is really an all-star mixture. I wonder what will change with Spider leaving the band.
