Lyrics

Nobodys Slave

Written By: Jon Century


Nobody’s slave

In a room with no windows…. I lay staring at the sun
In a house with no doors, I’m running, running a way, from what I’ve done
How come I can’t feel my body, head to toe, someone on top just want let go……

I use to have a life……

Yeah want be nobody’s slave
Yeah I’ll make you fucking pay
Yeah want be nobody’s slave
Yeah I’ll make you fucking pay

Is it just my imagination or did I once live an ordinary life, before they
Stole, sold and tolled me I would died if I tried to escape the rape
Paid by your friendly neighbor

I use to have a life……

Yeah want be nobody’s slave
Yeah I’ll make you fucking pay
Yeah want be nobody’s slave
Yeah I’ll make you fucking pay

Did I hurt your feelings or made your wife and kids wonder what a fucking monster you’ve become. Do you pray we’ll forgive you now that they know what you done?

Yeah want be nobody’s slave
Yeah I’ll make you fucking pay
Yeah want be nobody’s slave
Yeah I’ll make you fucking pay

Junkie

Written By: Jon Century

I was dreaming about the times
I used to wake in the middle of night
Tear my flat all a part
Looking for something
To put me right

While the fat boy on the fifth floor
Couldn't hardy move no more
So suicidal watching American idol

Everybody’s some kind of junkie no one can deny
We all long for satisfaction in our life

As the day would slowly fade workaholics on parade
In the streets et les jolies filles lore the rats into their trap
Me and my friends getting ready to spend all the money we made
It's getting late so we hit the club with drugs in our blood
And dance like monkeys

Everybody some kind of junkie no one can deny
We all long for satisfaction in our life
Some for sex some for less
Some for cash some for trash
Some for soul and some for control

Some may stand and some might fall
But I'm addicted to it all

Everybody’s some kind of junkie no one can deny
We all long for recognition to get by
Some for power some just flowers
Some for cash some for trash
Some for drugs and some for love
Everybody’s some kind of junkie no one can deny
We all long for satisfaction in our life

Time to shine

Written By: Jon Century

I’ve heard these same old lies before don't know what 2 say
I know what's on your mind but I don't wanna play
Dear good if you're still with me give me some kind of sign
I can't fake it any more it’s my time to shine

If you don't wanna know don't wanna know anything any more
If you don't wanna go don't wanna go anywhere no more

Dear friend if you can hear me give me some kind of sign
You can't fake it any more it’s your time to shine

If you don't wanna know don't wanna know anything any more
Don't be don't be surprised when every thing around you start to vaporizes
If you don't wanna go don't wanna go anywhere no more
Don't be don't be surprised when every thing around you start to vaporizes

If you don't wanna know don't wanna know anything any more
Don't be don't be surprised when every thing around you start to vaporizes
If you don't wanna go don't wanna go anywhere no more
Don't be don't be surprised when every thing around you start to vaporizes

If you don't wanna try don't wanna try anything any more
Don't be don't be surprised when every thing around you start to vaporizes
If you don't wanna love don't wanna love anyone any more
Don't be don't be surprised when every thing around you start to vaporizes
