Overload

Original and similar lyrics
By the look on my face I'm a soldier By the battles I've faced I'm a fighter But the truth is I'm about to break By the look in my eyes I'm wiser By the tears that I've cried I'm lighter But the truth is I've had as much as I can take I've been draggin' a bag since 1980 It swinged me down, can someone help me let it go? I'm in overload I've been relighting a match since 1980 Hoping the time and space would help me let it go I'm in overload By the mountains I've climbed I should be higher By the stars that I've chased I should be brighter But the truth is I've got nothing left Is it madness to give and not get? Am I hopeless and over my head? All I know is It's catching up with me I've been draggin' a bag since 1980 It swinged me down, can someone help me let it go? I'm in overload I've been relighting a match since 1980 Hoping the time and space would help me let it go I'm in overload I got caught up in this mess I was torn up, lost my breath It's in overload It ain't over though I got caught up in this mess I was torn up, lost my breath It's in overload It ain't over though I've been draggin' the bag since 1980 It swinged me down, can someone help me let it go? I'm in overload I've been relighting a match since 1980 Hoping the time and space would help me let it go I'm in overload

Ok, Here's The Truth

JAVIER COLON "Come Through For You"
There's a look on her face She's starting to master And she carefully closes the door She's been coming home late With pre-packaged answers To questions she tries to avoid Now she's talking too fast And I just have to ask Baby what's all the cloak and dagger for Okay here's the truth I ran out of gas & I didn't call cause I thought you'd be mad So I started to walk Took an hour and a half To get off that highway and fill up that can I was hoping that you'd understand She's getting good with the lies So good that you wondered If the rabbit in the hat tricks for real She turns water into wine And I'd almost believed her If her eyes just for once could keep still Now my patience wasting Cause she's late once again Honey tell me what delayed you this time Okay here's the truth It's gonna sound kind of strange But I took a new way home from work for a change It started out fine Til I got to Route 9 When an hour away before I realized I'm sorry I ruined all our plans I was hoping that you'd understand And there watching her secretly talking It is just about all I can bear Now I know why she's been wearing Make-up and caring So much about changing her hair The telephone vibrates on the table again Another damn private call coming through And now she's visibly shaking And I just feel like taking that phone Throwing it clear across the room She answers “hello” A mans voice I don't know Says “it's time that you tell him the truth” Now I can't take this no more Honey I'm out the door No, I won't relax I got my suitcase all packed What she said next stopped me dead in my trust Okay here's the truth It's not what you think The man that you heard is head of oncology I'm sorry I lied To you all of those times I didn't know how to tell you I might not survive Okay there's the truth I've got six months to live I wanted what's best for you and the kids I promise I'll fight With all of my might But if I lose this battle I lived a good life So baby just please hold my hand And tell me that you understand

Ordinary Love Shit Pt. 2

JOE BUDDEN
[Overlapped from Part 1:] She feel like she don’t have a voice in this relationship I’m thinking boo you got a choice so why you taking it Certain shit I wouldn’t stand for I’m giving her my all but she demands more I wish she would understand more Certain shit you couldn’t plan for I’m guessing I love you and your worth it I should take some time out and figure if you deserve this but you just think that I’m full of it We both come from backgrounds of bullshit I’m fortunate that that aint what you see in me I’ll stop lying to you once you start believing me But I’m always who you wanna bring the questions to It’s less about me hiding shit and more about me rejecting you It’s totally different the way our minds are made up To me flirtings natural, to her it’s cause for break up To me it’s human nature she disagree with the logic confusing being monogamous with being robotic I talk to other girls I interact with em You shouldn’t take that as tryna get in the sack with them Just know how I act with you is how I act alone I signed up for a girl not a chaperone Besides that plan’ll backfire and now it’s onto her She don’t take my word and now I feel I’m being monitored And I wont you to be the one that I endured the longest Accept me at my weakest, support me at my strongest Bring something to the table though, earn ya keep Then I’ll triple it and all I ask in return is peace Aint with the arguing shit all the time You see I’m honest to a fault but is it yours or mine I put you through some things where you could have bolted You want honesty or rather shit be sugar coated I’ll put you on a list of people screaming fuck me too Do you want a pretty lie or the ugly truth? Truth is you got some things that you gotta learn too When everything that concerns me don’t concern you Truth is you gotta a couple tainted views And you bring up my ex as if I couldn’t do the same with you Truth is you want me to do the kept it real Truth is you’re too emotional and need a better filter No third party will ruin our plan I’d had for you to be the girl who’s too consumed with her man So I want you to have your own plans You to have you own ends You to have your own life You to have your own friends and I’ll be right beside you I can tell that you cried Cause you don’t bring up problems that you got with me till I do You say that I’m out a lot and that I aint here enough You take care of me and I’ll take care of us I’d love to put a child in you and live lavish But my baby momma scared me, let me tell you bout my baggage We could have a son and break up and be done And now I’ll never see him again As you take him and run You gon’ tell him that he’s fatherless Tell him that I’m cowardly You’ll have some resentment so you’ll start acting childishly You’ll rake me in court cause of course you’ll have it out for me To you it may sound obsurd but for me it’s a reality Still at times it seems like you’re not proud of me Though I’m showing you the best man I know how to be But you keep saying show me more You’d appreciate me better had you known me before You’ve never been cheated on had another chick in your house in your bed You, you aint seen the worst time Hit you with that old move Take you to a flick that I’ve already seen with another broad but pretend like it’s my first time And, ya don’t know how that sound On the phone with you, while she quiet in the background Bunch of shit that I aint in a hurry to do So before I beef, know that he got buried for you I dont tell you that for points, nah, you can keep the brownies I tell you so that you know I was mature when you found me Tell you so you know that little boy shit that I get annoyed with You should keep it coy with Cause all that is, is stress for me I’m not ya ex baby girl you not a catch for me I mean respectfully, certain shit I’m not....

ANI DIFRANCO "Revelling / Reckoning"
A cold and porcelain lonely In an old New York hotel A stranger to a city That she used to know so well Bathing in a bathroom That is bathed in the first blue light Of the beginning of a century At the end of an endless night Then she is wet behind the ears and wafting down the avenue Pre-rush hour Post-rain shower Stillness seeping upwards like steam From another molten sewer Summer in New York They've been spraying us with chemicals in our sleep Us / they Something about the mosquitoes having some kind of disease Them / me CIA foul play If you ask the guy selling hair dryers out of a gym bag Chemical warfare 'I'm telling you, lab rat to lab rat,' he says, 'that's where the truth is at' That's where the truth is at That's where the truth is at And everything seems to have gone terribly wrong that can But one breath at a time is an acceptable plan She tells herself And the air is still there And this morning it's even breathable And for a second the relief is unbelievable And she's a heavy sack of flour sifted Her burden lifted She's full of clean wind for one lean moment And then she's trapped again Reverted Caged and contorted With no way to get free And she's getting plenty of little kisses But nobody's slippin' her the key Her whole life is a long list of what ifs And she doesn't even know where to begin And the pageantry of suffering therein Rivals television TV is, after all, the modern day roman coliseum Human devastation as mass entertainment And now millions sit jeering Collectively cheering The bloodthirsty hierarchy of the patriarchal arrangement She is hailing a cab She is sailing down the avenue She's 19 going on 30 Or maybe she's really 30 now ... It's hard to say It's hard to keep up with time once it's on its way And, you know, she never had much of a chance Born into a family built like an avalanche And somewhere in the 80s between the oat bran and the ozone She started to figure out things like why One eye pointed upwards looking for the holes in the sky One eye on the little flashing red light A picasso face twisted and listing down the canvas Of the end of an endless night 10 9 8 seven six 5 4 three 2 one And kerplooey You're done. You're done for. You're done for good. So tell me Did you? Did you do Did you do all you could?

ADEMA "Planets"
A screaming match again Could this be the end A breaking point and I can't bear it You wanna know the truth The matter life is long I've taken every wrong direction Writing on the wall Love once strong now falls I'm staring into space And drowning under my decisions I wonder how you can sleep At night, having lied to these eyes You could feel the relief The lying awake at night Wondering nowhere the same time To know his face and his name Made me lose my mind I fell apart for the last time These eyes neglected to see it And thanks to you My conscious finally feels clean I brought you into this You blame me over that We fight each others accusations You wanna know the truth The truth is I'm afraid Afraid of going nowhere always Writing on the wall Love once strong now falls I'm burning in the flames Covered with the scars of our love I wonder how you can sleep At night, having lied to these eyes You could feel the relief The lying awake at night Wondering nowhere the same time To know his face and his name Made me lose my mind I fell apart for the last time These eyes neglected to see it And thanks to you My conscious finally feels clean Lately, lately I just keep wasting, wasting To make me hate me, hate me Maybe we just don't belong Again, is this the end After what you put me through I feel nothing for you
