Seether - Words As Weapons Lyrics




All I really want is something beautiful to say...
(All I really want is something beautiful to say...)

Keep me locked up in your broken mind
I keep searching, never been able
To find a light behind your dead eyes
Not anything at all

You keep living in your own lie
Ever deceitful and ever unfaithful
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified
Take everything from my world

Say, "Can you help me?" right before the fall
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

Keep me dumb, keep me paralyzed
Why try swimming? I'm drowning in fable
You're not that saint that you externalize
You're not anything at all

(All I really want is something beautiful to say)

It's all so playful when you demonize
To spit out the hateful, you're willing and able
Your words are weapons of the terrified
You're nothing in my world

Say, "Can you help me?" right before the fall
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

All I really want is something beautiful to say
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified
All I really want is something beautiful to say
You keep living in your own lie
All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever
All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

You keep living in your own lie
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified

All I really want is something beautiful to say
(All I really want is something beautiful to say)

Say, "Can you help me?" right before the fall?
Take what you can and leave me to the wolves

All I really want is something beautiful to say
Words are weapons of the terrified
All I really want is something beautiful to say
Keep me guessing, keep me terrified
All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever
All I really want is something beautiful to say
To never fade away
I wanna live forever

Seether Words As Weapons Comments
  1. Rated Strix

    Love it when I find an old song/band I’ve ignored for years and turns out they have some proper belters!! Great song! 👍🏻

  2. Michael Frost

    Seether doesn't get the credit they deserve I've seen them many times in concert and they put on a very good show almost always sounds like the album track that's real talent

  3. MetalFaceOff

    Here's the lyrics for the song:
    All around me are familiar faces
    Worn out places, worn out faces
    Bright and early for their daily races
    Going nowhere, going nowhere
    Their tears are filling up their glasses
    No expression, no expression
    Hide my head, I want to drown my sorrow
    No tomorrow, no tomorrow

  4. Mitchell Young

    This song and “Let you down” where they had something beautiful to say!

  5. Karel Krejčí

    Some parts of verse reminds me highly melody of Mad world by Tears of Fears, but especially Gery Jules version. Wrong? still i like this song too

  6. Jace Desengel

    i am the saint that i externalize, though i likely look intimidating. due to constant monitoring and surveillance, i have to be on good behavior. since they are always watching looking for any chance to fuck me over further. very nice of them to ensure, ill be a very good boy. avoid fighting unless attacked, never sleep with anyone, avoid contact with any possible and generally not trust anyone, since i dont know anyone and they constantly fuck around in the background and watch me, eroding trust and making it impossible to trust any. fucking clown show of idiots.

  7. fla playa

    This song will always remind me of how evil my family is. Willing to bet your family is evil too if you are aware of it or not.. Human beings in general are greedy, sadistic, evil....

    Melwithguts

    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    Keep me locked up in your broken mind
    I keep searchin, never been able to find a
    Light behind your dead eyes
    Not anything at all
    You keep living in your own lie, ever deceitful and ever unfaithful
    Keep me guessin, keep me terrified
    Take everything from my world
    Say can you help me right before the fall
    Take what you can and leave me to the wolves
    Keep me dumb, keep me paralyzed
    Why try swimming? I'm drowning in fables
    You're not that saint that you externalize
    You're not anything at all
    It's oh-so playful when you demonize
    To spit out the hateful, you're willing and able
    Words are weapons I'd be terrified
    You're nothing in my world
    Say can you help me right before the fall
    Take what you can and leave me to the wolves
    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    Keep me guessin, keep me terrified
    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    You keep livin' in your own lie
    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    To never fade away, I wanna live forever!
    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    To never fade away, I wanna live forever!
    You keep living in your own lie
    Keep me guessin, keep me terrified
    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    Say can you help me right before the fall
    Take what you can and leave me to the wolves
    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    Words are weapons I'd be terrified
    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    Keep me guessin, keep me terrified
    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    To never fade away, I wanna live forever!
    All I really want is something beautiful to say
    To never fade away, I wanna live forever!
