Shifty Take Away The Pain Lyrics

[TC]

Take away the pain

An let me fly away

Take away the pain

An let me fly away

This is a last dance

My last chance.. to get it right

At first glance

You might think my life looks nice

But if you look a little closer

I walk on thin ice

Im 1 slip from death

12 steps from paradise

Im young America

Riddled with defects of charater

A reject

Caught in a web of mass hysteria

I pray for the world to change

I seen my friends killed in pain

1 fixed from the end

1 drink from sane Im stained

Lost with my brain broke

A second from smoked out

Still living the great hope

Shit if ya gonna save me save me now

Im an escape artist with no escape I need a way out

My life is way out

The same old played out

Stuck on the same rout

So Im taking a leap of faith

Hoping I win this race

Hoping this time I’m bleased and dont miss

Cause I know

An God knows

I really worked hard for this

[TC]

Take away the pain

An let me fly away

Take away the pain

An let me fly away

Now when i get away from trouble

I go looking for more

Taking 2 steps back from the bridge to the shore

Trying to hustle muscle sore from doing the Devil’s chore’s

Running from my problems

Never getting to the core

Been running round in circles

Down dead end roads

I dont know where Im going

But I act like I know

Borrowing money to pay back what I owe

My heads a 3 ring circus

Im a 1 man show

Another tattooed freak

I was born in a jar

I was breed to be a sick confused loser rockstar

So whose the puppet master?

I went from county jail to an over night disaster

Living fast an getting faster

Now mumma’s on the front pouch sippin on some wine

While Daddy’s in the office an hes chopping up some lines

My sisters in the backyard smoking northen green

My brothers in the basement cooking meth amphetamines

[TC]

Take away the pain

An let me fly away

Take away the pain

An let me fly away

These thoughts, collective

Im trying to alter my perspective

I’m coming to a halt

But to stop is my objective

Time is running out

My luck is running thin

I’ve struggled too long not to win or die trying

I see the clock ticking buying time time is flying

I smile at defeat still inside Im crying

Look into the sky asking why I cant live a simple life

Its a lie to try an say the grass isnt greener on the other side

A poor excuse for Heavens set

Cause I cant climb the fench no matter how hard I try

Im wrapped in bared wire wondering whose on my side

Rusty knives in back

Theres no where left for me to hid

Im wrapped up in sins so Im in for a ride

I’d commit suicide but I dont wanna die

Im sick of getting high

An Im sick of these games

There’s not enough drugs to take

To take away the pain

[TC]

Take away the pain

An let me fly away

Take away the pain

An let me fly away
