Lyrics:
Stuck to the dog, pissin' out both ends
I've got a hundred lethal weapons that I call my friends
Ain't a person on Earth who can take my life
I wish they would so a man could get some sleep at night
My design is a mixture of descent and decay
I see a monster in the mirror f***in' every day
Can a man ever wash his hands of blood?
Perpetual deja-vu, isn't that enough?

        Verse 2

(Play what you would normally play on the first verse - same guitar parts)

Lyrics:

See if you can relish if you close both eyes
Every time I make an issue of it, someone dies
Carried out like a hitman - set in stone
Don't know why I even bother to be left alone
In my opinion it's a self-serving f***ed up phase
Got a picture that I keep in my wallet in case
I gotta go, gotta split, gotta make it to a higher level than this
But I could be wrong, what I say is wrong, what I really wanna say is...

        Pre-Chorus

(Guitar is the same, and so are the lyrics. This time it leads into the chorus)

        Verse 3

(Guitar is the same, lyrics change though)

Lyrics:

Here's how it ends; just a bit too soon
River deep in all the s*** I let myself get into
Doesn't anybody like it here?
Blank looks, television drama, and no fear
Let another person f*** with your mind
I bet you'll become the person who will f*** in time
Man I just stopped caring, the music is blaring
I feel you glaring, why won't you STOP STARING?!

        Pre-Chorus

(Guitar and lyrics are the same as the previous Pre-Chorus')

        Chorus

(Same guitar as the last one)

Lyrics:

Run! It doesn't matter!
I need all the miracles that I can gather
Run! I can't pretend!
I put myself in idle hands again!

GET THE F*** OFF OF ME!

I think at some point, they play an artificial harmonic as it's ringing out, but I'm not certain.



Hope you enjoyed Idle Hands by Stone Sour. I'll see if I can get Black John up at some point.
