Please excuse me while I lick my wounds That was quite a shot to the head You keep on saying that I'll be alright But you're the one that wants me dead All my life I've been kicked around Never given the time of day You wanna tell me how to live my life Pointing fingers every step of the way You wanna kick me You'll never beat me You think you’ll stop me You won’t deny me Your smug intentions try to crush my will I'm more resilient then you ever thought And now you realize this is no dream I can't be sold 'cause I can't be bought All I want is to be left alone Your interference is gonna be your end You keep on pushing every night and day This sort of thing will never happen again You wanna kick me You'll never beat me You think you’ll stop me You won’t deny me

Honey, don't confront me Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you! Lady, it's a shame yeah Evil bitch, through and through Honey, don't confront me Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you! I see you fronting With your haters I'm looking through you See you later You had me hooked With your charming You cut me deep Now I'm just disarming You did your best to keep me guessing honey I'm so over you You didn’t learn from the lessons Karma's bill is long overdue Baby, you’re crazy Why you do the things that you do? Honey, don't confront me Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you! Lady, it's a shame yeah Evil bitch, through and through Honey, don't confront me Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you! Baby there’s a millions reasons Why we can’t get along It’s easy to see, just ask Faster P When it boils down, dontcha stick around Because my hate is strong Why you do the things that you do? Honey, don't confront me Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you! Lady, it's a shame yeah Evil bitch, through and through Honey, don't confront me Cause I'm pretty sure I hate you!

A lil something that you can't comprehend Makes no difference to me Called down the thunder thinking yours to command I'll never let it be I see ya shaking You lost your cool You're so mistaken If you think I’m on board I’m nobody’s fool Who wants the war? I’ll give you more If you want a war, You got it If ya feel that my rage Is a little out of place You asked for war Try and stop it /You can’t stop it High and mighty while you put on a show You dig your hooks into me And while we're at there's something you should know I'll never let it be

We must obey I heard them say When you choose a side, you can’t look away Whispers loud as cannons But the voices have no names You gotta want it, you gotta feel it in your soul When you hear the music, it's time reach out and take control You fuel the fire And they’ll fan the flames Can you feel it Do you see it Do you need it It’s already here Did you meet your maker, did it tell you things you want to hear Was it all for nothing, hidden from the shadows you once feared You sought redemption Let the vultures stake their claims Can you feel it Do you see ii Do you need it It’s already here Interlude

We got the numbers We got the numbers to take you We got the power We got the power to break you You think you know us You think you know us, you don’t though You want to show us You want to show us, we won’t go Yeah, it’s just like that Gonna leave you flat Hey meet the new boss Hey meet the new boss, just the same Join the true cause Join the true cause play their game We beg to differ We beg to differ so bend your ear We've got a message We've got a message you'll want to hear Yeah, it’s just like that Gonna leave you flat, flat, flat oh get back! Keep on rocking Never stopping

Give yourself a minute to listen Take another moment to learn Realize what you’ve been given Is nothing close to what's being churned You don't have to smile when they tell you Or walk a mile in their shoes Just step back from the ledge now (baby) Give yourself a lifetime to chose Learn how to talk Before you can walk They got that child in their eyes Eyes that are black No turning back Rhetoric's on high You think we woulda learned from the last time Instead we just stare at our hands Poisoned by the fruits of the liars Blindly following all their commands You don't have to smile when they tell you Or walk a mile in their shoes Just step back from the ledge now (baby) Give yourself a lifetime to chose Learn how to talk Before you can walk They got that child in their eyes Eyes that are black No turning back Rhetoric's on high

Thought I saw you coming once before Just a passing glance but nothing more Now it seems I need you each and every day Took away my pain no words can say I ain’t gonna lie, it feels so good In your dark embrace it's understood Can't recall where up is But I'm not ever down I won't face the truth When you're around Just a second more just another hit Erase me from my life, again Just a second more just another hit Bring me to the night, within Crippled me, with your wild desires On a bed of ash, you feed me to the fire Selling my soul for your love Killing just to make you smile Bullet to the head You know I'm running wild I can’t quit you even if I try We're as thick as thieves, do or die Promising me forever Slowly driving me insane Whispering all your lies Into my brain Just a second more just another hit Erase me from my life, again Just a second more just another hit Bring me to the night, Within Just a second more just another hit Erase me from my life, again Just a second more just another hit Bring me to the night, within

Every day, I'm slowly going under Break my back for bills I can't pay Gotta get back no use in taking cover Searching for words to see me on my way If life's a sickness I need a cure You tapped my weakness Can't bleed me more All we need is the Baron of Soul the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla! If you shake it you just might make it Just let the music take control All we need is the Baron of Soul the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla! If you fake it you're bound to might make it If you wanna play the role Take it on, the weight is overwhelming But if I don't break it makes me fight on Seen it all, but still you wanna tell me Deaf to your words I'll sing my own song If life's a sickness I need a cure You tapped my weakness Can't bleed me more All we need is the Baron of Soul the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla! If you shake it you just might make it Just let the music take control All we need is the Baron of Soul the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla! If you fake it you're bound to might make it If you wanna play the role

It's electric I'm infected What you're feeling Is expected If you're gonna run with me You gotta want to see That we're in this, together Your butterflies are on fire The flames taking me higher Your butterflies are on fire Butterflies Butterflies From our cages We'll take stages Recite the words From the pages If you're gonna run with me You gotta want to see That we're in this, together Your butterflies are on fire The flames taking me higher Your butterflies are on fire Butterflies Butterflies

about

"MIDAGMUS just keeps bringing it!
Hard to believe it's only two guys making this wall of noise!

Nipping at the heels of their last album, 'GREATEST HITS' (which ironically/sarcastically is their first, full length album), MIDAGMUS once again throws us a powerful curve with 'THIS IS NOT HAPPENING'.

Comprised of a dozen, lean and mean tracks, this record delivers the goods and isn't afraid to lean heavily on some great riffage! Tunes like 'Fan the Flames','R is for Rhetoric' and 'Beg to Differ' showcase the band's ability to get political without being overly self righteous. 'Pretty Sure I Hate You', a soon to be classic, tells the tale of a relationship gone bad. 'Flaunt It' has a very cool jazzy vibe which reminded me of the time I spent MCing gentlemen's clubs in Detroit. 'Butterflies' and 'Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla' (finally somebody used this as a song title!) brings the heavy hitting punch and groove...could this be the unholy union between Soundgarden and AC/DC that we didn't know we needed? A girl can dream..."
