Come Down 04:11
Lord forgive me for I have surely sinned. I can’t promise I won’t transgress again. The taste is still fresh off of my tongue, dripping off of my forehead I put the final stamp on this broken dream, least I did something right if not the righteous thing The writing was on the wall you didn’t believe it. Begging the question too long gets the answer you dreaded You better believe it Let ‘em come down, let the tears hit the ground. I won’t change my mind if they’re yours or mine You never cared if we were going up or down, always scared I might turn myself around The writing was on the wall you chose not to see it. Blowin out still walkin tall, you better believe it Let ‘em come down, let the tears hit the ground. I won’t change my mind they’re yours or mine. Let ‘em come down, let the tears hit the ground. I won’t change my mind, if they’re yours or mine

My head is light and it’s getting bad, but I ain’t got time to think about that. Hands on the wheel, tight on the heel, eye’s fixated on the dotted line. No second guessin, time is of the essence tonight One more dead-head drive through the ice yet to come. One more evening to breath the fire out of my lungs Oh, empty as my pockets. Oh, this change of pace don’t aim to please. Oh empty as my pockets but I don’t care where this road is gunna lead me My legs are weak but I gotta run. I’ll get some sleep when my work is done. Turn up the music, light a new cigarette, more conversation gunna do me fine. One hour more, half again before I close me eyes Scratch one hour off the difference between the times to a new hotel bed, to sleep off all the dope and the wine Oh, empty as my pockets. Oh, this change of pace don’t aim to please. Oh, empty as my pockets but I don’t care where this road is gunna lead me

The blood in its veins is a lie. Deadly remains forgotten by time. The last of my kinsmen am I, alone in the cold I must kill or die I think this thing is alive, no trace of the man inside. One taste is all it needs, life in this death abides The dogs are wound so tight. A shadow in the storm of unearthly might, changing the shape of its frame. Man against man in the mounting flame I think this thing is alive, no trace of the man inside Fear is your new god and fire it’s right hand. Flesh has become one, no one is innocent No one is innocent x 3 Fear is your new god and fire it’s right hand. Flesh has become one, no one is innocent No one is innocent x 2

It’ll hide your tears if you bury your head, money got nothing to do with it you can live large or you can play dead Nobody has the answer to this world of sorrow Found your freedom in a hole like you always do, voices on the radio remind me of you. Can’t put your finger on what’s troubling you now that you’ve found a new way to shut the world out The truth don’t care what the preacher said it’s the only thing for you in the end. Up and alive or paralyzed with dread the universe is a jagged edge Nobody knows which way the wind gunna blow tomorrow Found your freedom in a hole like you always do, voices on the radio remind me of you It’ll hide your tears if you bury your head, you can live large or you can play dead Found your freedom in a hole like you always do. Voices on the radio remind me of you. Can’t put you finger on what’s troubling you now that you’ve found a new way to shut the world out

Blood Drunk 02:52
You try to talk some sense into him if you can. But you’re reasoning with a brick wall of a man You don’t know why he gets home from the tank every day, he’s blood drunk, you best stay out of his way You best stay out of his way You don’t know why he never listens to you. You know you’re right and you’re hoping he sees that too. You’re in between a lion and his prey, he’s blood drunk, you best stay out of his way You best stay our of his way x2 He’s blood drunk, you best stay out of his way You best stay out of his way He’s blood drunk x3 He’s blood drunk, you best stay out of his way

Enemy 02:33
Freedom is a nightmare to a poor soul who just don’t care. Son of father’s despair walkin on ice nose in the air Come back to me, tonight destiny is your enemy Stake your claim in this mess, too afraid to raise the flame. Young but weak and useless, lived or died and nothing changed Come back to me, tonight destiny is your enemy Come back to me, tonight destiny, look out! Come back to me, tonight destiny is your enemy

Broken bones and ligaments. The pain clouds my judgement. Like wild eyes that can’t be denied. Father comes and goes like wind, a candle extinguished. It burns bright and leaves in the night Before we get carried away with these old words, spoken in haste my regret won’t be unlearned I, master of the slow goodbye and you the poor soul who is hypnotized I’ll be back to make it right, down with a will to fight. I scapegoat, teeth to the throat Before we get carried away with these old words, spoken in haste my regret won’t be unlearned I, master of the slow goodbye and you the poor soul who is hypnotized. Leave, there’s nothing for you to learn. Leave, together this love is murder I, master of the slow goodbye and you the poor soul who is hypnotized. Leave, there’s nothing for you to learn. Leave, together this love is murder

Across the sea under black sail to the shores of the sun, to the hall of the arrow and redemption Eyes wide in the sunlight, jaws locked in the din. White hide on the outside, hearts hardened within On the shores of the sun My foe stands before me, now he lies in the sand. My banner and glory, to another man Eyes wide in the sunlight, jaws locked in the din. White hide on the outside, hearts hardened within On the shores of the sun Land on the horizon, the walking dead, blood sweat, a glorious death and two coins for the boatman Two coins for the boatman x2 Fists clenched as I carry on into the abysmal dawn. Sword met by a swords reply, on steel and strength rely. White-hot rays that blind and sear, no mercy or compassion here. It’s all lies as I close my eyes and I feel no fear Land on the horizon, the walking dead, blood sweat, a glorious death and two coins for the boatman Two coins for the boatman x2 On the shores of the sun
