Somebody's Heine'
Is crowdin' my icebox
Somebody's cold one
Is givin' me chills
Guess I'll just close my eyes

Oh yeah,
It feels good

Flip on the tele'
Wrestle with Jimmy
Something is bubbling
Behind my back
The bottle is ready to blow

Say it ain't so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain't so
My love is a lifetaker

I can't confront you
I never could do
That which might hurt you
So try and be cool

When I say
This way is a waterslide away from me
That takes you further every day
So be cool

Say it ain't so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain't so
My love is a lifetaker

Dear Daddy, I write you
In spite of years of silence

You've cleaned up, found Jesus
Things are good or so I hear

This bottle of Stevens
Awakens ancient feelings

Like father, stepfather
The son is drowning in the flood, yeah

Ah yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Say it ain't so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain't so
My love is a lifetaker

    General CommentI'm not a huge fan of popular bands covering other bands but they do a great cover of this song, Chino's voice is amazing...Deftones rule!

    General Commentchino said it himself that if he could, he would join Weezer in a heartbeat. I heard the cover they did and the Tones made it sound a whole lot better then weezer's...to me at least

    General Comment"I just got to go see Weeeeeeezer." haha.

    "Huh, Slayer?"

    Been soo long since I listened to this. Apparently, just as long as it's been since someone commented.
