Southbound 03:53
Feel the amber burn; smoke seeping up through my battered lungs Exhale the breath of life I know exactly how I'll die. Reload the gun I noticed how you've been walkin' A new dance and how you're talking. Man you've changed. The follower's the fool Bow down to your rules Left, right, left! From the north we've come to raid South bound to rule your town Time is knocking at the door to get paid Are you worth bringing to life? As I get a little older I see the manipulation and the lies Getting right fucked By the man in the suit and the tie I see them dollar signs Glistening in your souless dead eyes Feeding off the man Regurgitate his chant Left, right, left! From the north we've come to raid South bound to rule your town As the joy is replaced by the pain I got a feeling you'll figure it out And the gas is poured on the flame Ignite your suicide Time is knocking at the door to get paid Are you worth bringing to life? You used to be a friend of mine I gotta say I miss them good ol' times Getting roped in, throat slit, Hog tied that's fine It's almost like you've turned into the kind of person you hate Chained at the hip, locked up, iron grip Left, right, left

Living through addiction. Living through the past I see my dark reflection staring right back With it's blood shot eyes finger pointed right at me He mouthed “I'm gonna kill you” set your tortured soul free Where's the devil when you need him? I'm feeling all alone My inner self is itching to find a buried home Will my will still kill even if I'm gonna die The hand of death keeps creeping up my shattered spine I'll go. Where I don't know. I'll follow all the signs that point to dagger road Hell is getting closer. It's warming up my feet And tensions getting tighter my heart is skipping beats And my head is getting heavy it's pointed at the ground My only true direction is down, down, down My mind is getting weaker it teeters on the tracks And the slightest gust of wind decides what happens next With a penny as my fortune will it buy enough to eat? Before I hit the road my foot must start on the street I'll go. Where I don't know. I'll follow all the signs that point to dagger road As I walk towards the gallows my spirt is at ease Suppress my fading ego tears roll down my cheeks As the final grain of sand hits the hour glasses base I wish you knew I loved you but it's far too late

Dark Skies 04:17
It's tearing through A new beginning Starting over now Is me forgiving The dust settles in A new road is seen It's time to wake up From this dream With my eyes closed I walk alone Through all the pain your colours show I feel the loss and start the growth Dark Skies Found peace With just a few You never know what you're worth Until you've been used And I don't ask for much no Just the truth In all the faces I see All I see is you With my eyes closed I walk alone Through all the pain your colours show I feel the loss and start the growth Dark Skies They Black me out

The Hex 02:40
Tuning out / Feel the age Scar your face / Your skin's decayed You feel alive / Yet broke and sore As you're bleeding out I'm begging for more You feel the cracks / Your muted lips Your voice is dead / Exhaling mist It's just a whisper / An echoed scream When you close your eyes that's when I'm seen I'll make it slither down your throat I'll ring that flattened sharpened note I'll possess your body And now you're mine to be controlled Blackened heart / Chipped spitting teeth You'll kill yourself / Just to be free Now kiss the ground / It's getting cold Feel my death creeping in breaking bone by bone My shadowed veil / Has been removed Just like your soul / It's being consumed You're seeing red / Your life's in doubt As I'm coming into focus you're fading out

The Legacy 04:51
Blinding light beneath the shade And time stands still and the night remains Embrace my fate while facing the decay And I'll pray that I'll see that day Chasing life just to reach the end And hanging on to all that's left I'll see myself in the flames of this hell I'm afraid to be like the rest Lay me down At last I rest to mute the noise The wailing screams have filled the void So take my home, my family, my bones You leave me with just one choice Lay me down I made my bed But I'll stand instead I've paid my dues I can't die, I won't die, this death is for me not you Lay me down
