Track Name: Master Manipulator
If you see me on the street don't be afraid to grab my hand
cause' I am just a gentleman, in a strange and foriegn land
in a land where nothing matters, and all you do is stare
I am a master manipulator, an old fashioned sinner

Theres a portrait of the angels in blood upon my door
but all these things don't bother me the way they did before
the room is getting smaller and i start to loose my head
I am a master manipulator, an old-fashioned sinner

but I know what I want and I want it so bad
it's not my fuckin' funeral but the best I've ever had

If you can't do something good oh then we got a problem
yeah we got a problem
cause' if you can't do something good oh then we got a problem
yeah we got a problem now

I hear the cursing through the ceiling and it's right outside my door
but all these things don't bother me the way they did before
cause the feeling's getting closer and i start to hold my breath
I am a master manipulator, an old-fashioned sinner

there's people all around me and they're always askin' why
I tell myself I'm someone else and I'll do it til i die
cause the walls are closing in now and i start to lose my mind
I am a master manipulator, an old-fashioned sinner

oh cause I know what I want and I want it so bad
it's not my fuckin' funeral, but the best I've ever had

If you can't do something good oh then we got a problem
yeah we got a problem
cause if you can't do something good oh then we got a problem
yeah we got a problem now

And if you start to lose your mind
don't worry, I've seen it a thousand times
these things aren't so easily defined
I think I'll love you one more time

and in the corners you will find
another way to re-align
the open frailty of your mind
I think I've crossed the feeding line
