"Coal" as written by Chad L. Gray, Matthew Mcdonough, Greg Tribbett and Shawn Barclay....
My soul simply won't bleed
Coal blackened walls surround my scene hardened
Callous I've been stung by bees forfeited courage keeps me in need
And i need your soul in black,
Trust you rape and left me to see my soul attacked it's innocence deaf
And dumb I can't hear the shit been preached to me losses i could
You rip through from my mind

And take my thoughts from me m mind
My space inside I'm lost replaced bliss with catastrophe
Heaven sends to you the seed
My mind receives and accepts deceit
My acceptance sometimes disturbing
My appearance shows no sympathy me in this state of mind
My balance off balance but i push through this dark time i lay awake at night
My body trembles wrapped with vines each tie
That binds represents another dream demise

Oh fuck i need a handle in my life
I know that there is no escape for me
This sweating i don't mind just fused with insanity
Dark time i lay awake at night my body trembles
Wrapped with vines each tie that binds represents another dream demise
Oh fuck i need a handle in my life in my life
My soul has been caught in the mix of your plague hardened
Callous I've been stung by bees forfeited courage keeps me in need
My life is meaningless now is it you that i thank

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who has been through someting traggic (probable attacked physicaly or emotionaly or both). The person know feels as though they can not express them selves; "My soul simply won't bleed". They also feel themselves unable to handle their life;"I lay awake at night my body trembles, wrapped with vines, each tie that binds represents another dream demise. Oh fuck! I need a handle in my life, I know that there is no esacape for me."

    General CommentReally? Wow, I could have sworn that that was Ryan's playing style. And yes, Ryan is a bassist god, just like Matt is a drummer god. I have a wee shrine for them on the back of my bass. Hee.

    General CommentWhen they recorded the songs for Kill I Oughtta they still had their original bass player Shawn. Ryan joined about 2 years before L.D. 50 was released.

    General CommentYup, Ryan is a great bass player. Just like Matt is a good drummer, Greg is a good guitarist and Chad is a good singer. But people are too busy listening to the black eyed peas and simple plan they don't understand how talented Mudvayne are, and those people are just following the mainstream fad because it's 'in' right now. It's called talent, over half the stuff out there right now doesn't have any.
