Lyrics
Chronic (2004)

I once sought out the needle, once upon a time
I once hung out for the needle, and it hung me out to dry
Crawling clawing midnight rise, burning the taste out my eyes
Weepin' sleepin' dead inside, woken by devil device

Voices I hear, I pay them no mind
Still they persist, I believe them sometimes
As weary as I am I'm still toeing the line
A little older now, still the same old line

Although the winds have changed
I will still bleed the same
Just not like before

I remember a time I ceased breathing
Invitation I often deny
Was told that my heart had stopped beating
Broken the thorn in my side
I recall the thought I was thinking
As you woke me out of my delight
Now I've got to find me a reason
The fit was always my size

Voices I hear, I pay them no mind
Still they persist, I believe them sometimes
Bring it on, bring it on
My will may seem weak, but believe me it's strong

Although the winds have changed
Much is still frozen in place
Some things always remain

I wouldn't say that I'm a liar
Although I've told some some lies
I wouldn't say that I'm a fighter
Although I've been forced to fight
I wouldn't call myself a sinner
Although I've sinned in many eyes
I wouldn't call myself a stranger
Although I'm estranged in my life

Voices I hear, I pay them no mind
Still they persist, and I believe them sometimes
One man's gift is another man's burden
One man's guilt another man's prize

Although the winds have changed
All of those demons I've faced
Still come for tomorrow

All of those demons I've faced
Still come for tomorrow
