Track Name: Southbound
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
Track Name: To the Gallows
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
It's the last breath of air that seals my jaded fate
I wish you knew I loved you but it's far too late
Track Name: Dark Skies
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
Track Name: The Hex
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
Track Name: The Legacy
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
