Metal Opera: Rehabklok

Pickles the drummer es enviado a rehabilitación por comportamiento errático durante un concierto; mientras tanto, es sustituido por la X2P1158 quien parece encajar perfectamente en la banda. Esta es la historia de lo que sucedió:

"I Gotta Get Clean"

They did it! They did it!
They finally fucking did it!
They threw me under the bus!
They think they're so perfect
Can handle their booze
Well I'll tell you something:
They can NOT!

Why would they want to get rid of me?!
I'm fun and totally cool!
Unless they've been talkin' behind my back
And they know something I do not...

I've never been so betrayed!
Those bastards want me out of the way, yeah!
Send me away so I can get clean,
I think I know what they really mean
I think they plunge me deeper
So they can fuckin' replace me

I can't believe that it's come to this.
Some filled with anger and some with piss
I call them friends, I call them family!
Now I think that they're replacing me

Replace me,
Don't replace me!
Please don't replace me!
I gotta get clean! I gotta get clean!
I gotta get clean!
Oh god, I gotta get clean!

But it looks like the party's over
Gonna have one more for the road
Feel like I never really got to know ya, heh
Not really...
You gave me so much,
I don't think I'm ready to let go.

You gave me courage,
You gave me class
You gave me confidence
And I don't know what I'm gonna do
Without you!
Without you...

God, I don't know what I'm gonna do without you...

Oh god... oh no...
It's the saddest day in the world
This is the saddest day in the world

This is the saddest day in the world
This is the saddest day in the world
This is the saddest day in the world...

"Why I Drank"

Oh, I hate rehab so damn much!
I can't get out, I can't get out!
They drag me back,
I kick and fight
I'm spittin' on things,
I'm starting fights!
Lack of booze is killing me!
I need a drink, give me a drink!
Ah, rehab sucks! I wanna run away!
But those doctors are making me stay and they say...

(Rehab Physician)
We've got several steps you need to complete,
So you can get clean--get back on your feet.

(Rehab Patients)
I don't need this; I don't need your fucking help.
You're all stupid idiots,
You can all go to hell.

Shock 'em now, there is no escape
Same goes for all of you
Until I let you out of this place!
Now, you all have problems, that's the truth!
You're narcissistic parasites,
But we can save you

But you got to tell us why
All the reasons you got high
The reason that you used
The cause for your abuse!

If we could find out why
We could treat you inside
The action that we'll take--
Why did you drink?

I drank because it's cool!

Why did you drink?!

I drank because it tastes good!

Why did you abuse?!

I really like the flavour!

That just won't do!

It'll have to do!
It'll have to do!
It'll have to do!

If you don't tell me what I need to hear
You'll never get clean
You'll always live in fear!
You'll never go home
You'll be replaced in your band
Do you know what I mean?

Yes, I understand!
When I was a boy, I was traumatized
I was six years old and my brother lied!
He burned down the garage,
And he blamed it on me
And that was the first time I ever had a drink

I drank, I drank
I drank it all away
It's my brother's fault!
It's my brother's fault!

You must forgive your brother!

... No way.


I think that they're onto me,
No, I'm not drinking...
But I'm still not really clean
Til I finish my last step,
Of forgiving my brother
I am still dead to them

I see the way they look at me,
They think I'm not good as that dumb machine!
As long as that dumb machine is here
I won't be in to lead as clear...

So now I am forced
To go and forgive my stupid brother
In Australia
And if he accepts,
Then I can rejoin my band
and play that gig we have scheduled there!
And the robot will be out

But something tells me
He won't go lightly
There might be danger!

Danger (x19)

(There will Be danger)

I am a machine
I am alive
I am a god
I am machine

The Nowhen Man

there he goes by the beach
nowhere to go, the nowhen man
no looking back, not so far ahead
constantly late 'til it was too late

all his friends long retired
a fastpaced life they used to live
youngsters too young, bats too high
to realize how short their time is

all the lips he ever tried
withered and died, found their vase
between the lines, the makeup and tears
getting closer to the door

tastes from the past, lack of that spark
a noisy urge to try and go back
when your eyes are on the road
where are the clouds? where are the stars?

the nowhen man got lost in his mudglass
the nowhen man did not hear the gun
