Official Lyrics

Deuce: (Nine Lives, Deuce, let's go)

I'm supposed to be the one that brings us all together weak or strong
Not just a song we sing along when things go wrong
You will need me when you fall and I will need you when I'm wrong
Tears lead me on, they let me lead you so far, weak or strong, I'll hold your arm

I see the sickness in the signs, the dead weight in line
Like the sickness in my mind, homosexuals and liars
Fuck playing for reasons, fuck praying for Jesus
Let me shine like a god, like a leader
I'll burn a hole through your cross, my soul's already lost
And it's funny 'cause they're saying "he's hot"
But they don't see the fucking tears that I've cried
And they don't hear me when I scream when I die
I wanna live good, I wanna live right
My insecurities are eating me alive
I need a friend, someone close to my heart
That'll help me through my struggles, you can help me through my songs

I'm supposed to be the one that brings us all together weak or strong
Not just a song we sing along when things go wrong
You will need me when you fall and I will need you when I'm wrong
Tears lead me on, they let me lead you so far, weak or strong, I'll hold your arm

I already found the devil, he's my best friend
He taught me how to leave, but I don't wanna end
I'd want a pill for every bad thought
For every chick I've fucked, for every time I lost
Don't think I'm broken 'cause I'm not
Got milk? Got problems? Problems is all that I got
You're looking down on a barrel of a bent pole
Take my hand, I promise that I'll go slow
When you look too close you end up with a broke soul
'Cause in the end it's dark where all the souls go
Maybe you can show me how to live right
And come see how it all ends, I'm...

I'm supposed to be the one that brings us all together weak or strong
Not just a song we sing along when things go wrong
You will need me when you fall and I will need you when I'm wrong
Tears lead me on, they let me lead you so far, weak or strong, I'll hold your arm

I'll take you to a place so warm
Like the insides of a baby-unborn
The Bible keeps telling me "don't go"
They don't know what I know, what?
You will reap what I sew, what?
You will cease when I blow, yup
I won't leave when you go, nope
Come with me, let us go home

I'm supposed to be the one that brings us all together weak or strong
Not just a song we sing along when things go wrong
You will need me when you fall and I will need you when I'm wrong
Tears lead me on, they let me lead you so far, weak or strong, I'll hold your arm

2007 version

The oldest version of this song was released in 2007. It featured guest vocals from rapper Koly Kogate, who has his own verse and does the outro of the song.

Koly Kolgate: And it's funny 'cause I never thought I'd see
The sunlight blinds me
And all the questions unanswered like a cancer
My soul is erring for music like a dancer
I sit here with this pen and this pad
I write away the angst and the haters get mad
How can you even find the time to bitch?
All the things that you say, deep down it makes me sick
I say I'm sorry and I leave it in the past
But you bring it up again as if our words are like a rash
You practice hate but all we need right now is love
So stop looking towards the Heavens, I'm your guardian from above

Koly Kolgate: The one
Yeah, come on
Weak or strong, I'll hold your arm
(Your arm, your arm, your arm...)
