lyrics

Is this the place where the big bang banged?
Or just the place where the hangman hangs?
I get my grace from ripping off my face and I am not
going to simmer down.
You have a choice Miss America,
I am your cancerous eggs,
All the soul that you cannot control and the reason you can’t feel your legs.

(Chorus)
Do you want all of me?
Not just the sad refrain,
All of me,
I cannot take this pain,
All of me,
Is so so so set go,
ready let go,
where’d your net go,
I’m not dead like you...sucka, dead like you.

And now you see that I see things strange,
You had me pegged like I’m all in range,
I hate to burst your bubble, it hurts,
but I am not going to sit in that cage.

Because you bleed when they want you to bleed,
and you eat up all the lies cuz they’re easy on the eyes,
To my surprise the days of your life have gone by
while your life was robotically staged.

(Chorus) Do you want all of me?
Not just the sad refrain,
All of me,
I cannot take this pain,
All of me,
Is so so so set go,
ready let go,
where’d your net go,
I’m not dead like you...sucka, dead like you.

Fight through the pain, fight through the pain,
say it again, I’m not dead like you.
Break all your chains, break all your chains,
say it again, I’m not dead like you.
I give it up to the kids in the back cuz the kids in the
back are pushing so hard,
and the kids in the front with everybody wearing their
scars,
and the kids in the back with everybody screaming at
you,
SCREAM ON BACK, I’m not dead like you!

Hold your nose, here comes the cold water.
Let the river flow, grab your sons and your daughters,
Let the livin stay alive, let the livin stay alive, let the
living stay alive, let your livin, livin, livin, livin stay
ali-ive.

about

Black Queen Speaks Houston, Texas

Formed in Houston, TX but hailing from across the country, Black Queen Speaks came together for a common love of the almighty groove. Their sound is an amalgamation of blues, hard rock, grunge, 70’s funk, dance, and soul peppered with flourishes of 90’s hip hop. In short, Black Queen Speaks can best be described as if Jane’s Addiction and Soundgarden got their asses kicked by James Brown. ... more
