"The Beast And The Harlot"
This shining city built of gold, a far cry from innocence
There's more than meets the eye round here look to the waters of the deep
A city of evil

There sat a seven-headed beast, ten horns raised from his head
Symbolic woman sits on his throne but hatered strips her and leaves her naked
The Beast and the Harlot

She's a dwelling place for demons
She's a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird and makes us drink
The poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings
Fallen now is Babylon the Great

The city dressed in jewels and gold, fine linen, Myrrh and pearls
Her plagues will come all at once as her mourners watch her burn
Destroyed in an hour

Merchants and captains of the world, sailors, navigators too
Will weep and mourn this loss with her sins piled to the sky
The Beast and the Harlot

She's a dwelling place for demons
She's a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird and makes us drink
The poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings
Fallen now is Babylon the Great

The day has come for all us sinners
If your not a servant you'll be struck to the ground
Flee the burning, greedy city
Looking back on her to see there's nothing around
I don't believe in fairytales and no one wants to go to Hell
But we made the wrong decision and it's easy to see
Now if you wanna serve above or be a king below with us
Your welcome to the city where your future is set forever

She's a dwelling place for demons
She's a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird and makes us drink
The poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings
Fallen now is Babylon the Great

She's a dwelling place for demons
She's a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird and makes us drink
The poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings
Fallen now is Babylon the Great






"Burn It Down"
Jealousy's an ugly word, but you don't seem to care
Converse behind my back, but now I'm here
Need no one to comply with me though everyone that I defeat
Don't need you, fuck camaraderie, this rage will never go away

Hatred fuels my blood, I'll burn ya down (you can't help me)
One king to watch the horsemen fall, I'll fight 'til the end (I won't help you)
I can't trust anyone, see it in my eyes
Now I can understand, it's sorrow that feeds your lies

You're on my back when the water gets too deep for you to breath
A crutch for you that won't always be there
Hide in the dark another day, the fear in you is here to stay
I can't trust anyone, witness and see it in my eyes
Now I can understand, put faith in you for the last time
It's sorrow that feeds your lies

Run from me before I tear you down (be afraid)
You chose the wrong side (it feels so right)
I won't help you, let you rot away
Run towards the light exposing your soul (we won't be there by your side)
Salvation's dying (somebody's crying)
We're all gone in the end, sweet child we'll miss you
No, so far away

Falling away, can't turn back time
Burn it down anyway





"Blinded In Chains"
And we're at it again, I turn around another fucking war, man
I don't know where to begin, but I'll start with the radical letters
Their steps we're followin'

Running, don't go back and fight, too many you'll lose
(And as clowns you follow suit behind the blood
between the red and white and blue
but it's too deep for you to see
and everyone eventually will take the step
'cause it's in sight you take the left I'll take the right
I feel the hate you've built for me and I say pay attention baby)

As they thank the Lord the blind can't see
Like a plague fed to the brain deadly disease
I'd run away tonight with my mind still intact you gotta make it alright
Easier said than done with no place to hide and having no place to (run)
Running away from condition, I see you but you're running away from
Your scared seductive system

But it wasn't a sin, a sorry life in judging every action
And as they're feeding your mind with this shit you forgot
How to speak how to ask all the questions

The business at hand tonight, make the people choose
(I see another side in you but there's not much more I can do
from on the outside looking in your government is listenin'
to push you on the story of immortal father mortal son
give them your mind and all your wealth the cycle will rebirth itself)
If they had it their way I'd burn in Hell and your future's a fuckin' disaster can't you see
Don't give them all the power when your future's in desperate trouble baby

Most would claim I live a lie when pointing out it's easy to predict these things
Every color has its side, they live together vote but most won't read between these lines
Please help us, please save us of coarse they have control we're all the same
Up on the cross, crucified their problem drove the nail and let Him rot
Family and friends, it won't matter in the end I'm sure they'll understand
Now look at the world and see how the humans bleed
As I sit up here and wonder "bout how you sold you mind, body and soul
Looking at the fields so green I know this sounds obscene
I see you're living for tomorrow but decisions you have made will leave you empty

You've fallen asleep in denial
Look at the way we're dyin'
How it ends I'll never know
Just live you life blind like me







"Bat Country"
He who makes a beast out of himself
Gets rid of the pain of being a man

AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Caught here in a far away place
Wont lose my will to stay
I tryie.. to drive all through the night
The heat's so bad in weather, the bare and empty sights
No more ways to see the same
The sand is singing tentless words to me

"Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (All alone)
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction
My confidence is leavin' me on my own (All alone)
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention"

Sly-ie... adjust to my new sights
So rarely tired lies will take me to new highs
My hand is on the trigger. I'm ready to ignite.
Tomorrow might not make it, but everything's all right
Mental fiction, follow me...
Show me what it's like to be set free

Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (All alone)
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction
My confidence is leavin' me on my own (All alone)
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention

been tainted all my visions so unclean
now take a trip with me but
don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem

Caught here in a far away place
Won't lose my will to stay
These eye's wont see the same
After I fill today

Sometimes I don't know why
We'de rather live than die
We've looked up towards the sky
For answers to our lives
We мая
get some solutions
But most just pass us by
Don't want your absolution
Cause I can't make it right

I'll make a beast out of myself
gets rid of all the pain of being a man

Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (All alone)
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction
My confidence is leavin' me on my own (All alone)
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention

been tainted all my visions so unclean
now take a trip with me but
don't be surprised things aren't what they seem








"Trashed And Scattered"
Keep on writing you're just raping yourself
(nothing can take my mind away from them)
Don't you ask about me, ask 'bout somebody else
(Once I've fallen there's many stories to tell)
I can feel it, won't embrace it,
It's overwhelming how far ya take it
Stuck in a state of questioning)
And don't you tell me you know we' re destined
You won't convince me, I won't listen
(Resentment building, you've put our lives on hold)

Trashed and scattered again, I'm feelin' so low
You waste your breath while fuckin' with me, my blood is so cold
My destination is always unknown, I'll find my way there
but Godd*amn
Motherfuckers always wasting my time

I won't be the victim,
but the first to cast a stone
Sedated nights to the bar room fights
as metropolis takes its toll
And don't you try to stop me,
it's a place you'll never know
Don't try to judge or take shots at me
I'll never let you seize control

Play your game you better walk away
cause your integrity don't mean shit
Crawl on me you fucking parasite
and I'm gonna take you out

Label me, that's fine, I'll be somebody else
(Nothing in front of me but holes ahead)
Lie about my life, have a story to tell
(Lights went down, was on the edge and I fell)
Oh you're so insightful, let me remind you to twist and break me, should make you worried
(Long way to go and you're right there)
Two-faced liar, don't try and know me, deceit brings fire, makes sure you can't breathe
(Pick at pieces of my body below)

I never bothered with all the rumors
too much garbage (all the same)
(I know my destination)
I'll stand right here
Come on you falsehood deceitful liar (There's no shame)
Don't ever take my side, I know you're never right,
I'll justify the means
(Nothing's what it seems)
I'll stand around and fight
but there's no point tonight
been chained to this machine

Trashed and scattered again, I'm feelin' so low
You waste your breath while fuckin' with me, my blood is so cold
My destination is always unknown, I'll find my way there
but Godd*amn
Impostor are you out of your mind?

I walk down these roads alone and now you're seen here
My feelings that I'm having towards you are perfectly clear
(I control this ride)
My devils appetite is tonight and now I'm alright
But you Godd*amn
Motherfuckers always wasting my time

Play your game you better walk away
cause your integrity don't mean shit
Crawl on me you fucking parasite
and I'm gonna take you out

I won't be the victim,
but the first to cast a stone
Sedated nights to the bar room fights
as metropolis takes its toll
And don't you try to stop me
it's a place you'll never know
Don't try to judge or take shots at me
I'll never let you seize control

Don' try and get the best of me
(No one can help but your own self)
City makes my body ache
(Lonely, don't try and prey on me)
I feel your world dying, no more use in tryin'
And my body's trashed and low
but to you I'll never show myself or what's inside

And I've seen it all before, but now settle the score
Never join your side






"Seize The Day"
Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

I see my vision burn, I feel my memories fade with time
But I'm too young to worry (a melody, a memory, or just one picture)
These streets we travel on will undergo our same lost past

I found you here, now please just stay for a while
I can move on with you around
I hand you my mortal life, but will it be forever?
I'd do anything for a smile, holding you 'til our time is done
We both know the day will come, but I don't want to leave you

Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

Newborn life replacing life, replacing all of us, changing this fable we live in
No longer needed here so where should we go?
Will you take a journey tonight, follow me past the walls of death?
But girl, what if there is no eternal life?

Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
Its empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over
Trails in life, questions of us existing here, don't wanna die alone without you there
Please tell me what we have is real

So, what if I never hold you, or kiss you lips again?
I never want to leave you and the memories for us to see
I beg don't leave me

(Silence you lost me, no chance for one more day)
I stand here alone
Falling away from you, no chance to get back home]






"Sidewinder"
I slide through the wasteland that's my world
My hunger takes your life, preyed on to keep me alive, yeah
Mercy's all that you need, mercy's empty in me

Can't you feel the poison rising out of the morning and clear through the night
You can feel my strength destroy you straight to the heart from the venomous bite

That's right I shed my skin tonight but my fangs are hard to hide
And you know that you're going to die, yeah
Mercy's all that you need, mercy's empty to me

I can't regret, can't escape decisions made for me, no control
Fire that buns and never dies, wrapped around I'll bury my fangs inside

Making my way through the night you're still in my sight
You're runnin' away buy ya know you can't hide
My instincts are cold blooded hate; to you I'm the bearer of fate
Wrong place and now the wrong time, now terror is all that you'll find

Stay inside tonight - you're out there all alone
Vanish from my sites - venomous control
You can't make it right - my appetite has grown
Lost your final fight - no love will be shown







"The Wicked End"
Man's becoming more corrupt now, godless, wicked, and cruel
The soulless man stood silenced, Mary's "word" rang so true
Chastisement worse than the flood, spread the word, its all through
Don't kill the messenger girl
As if we haven't swam enough in this life of misery

Voice your prophecy, shed some light
feel sorrow for mankids's chance to survive
Swallowed lies and swam in your own tears
A stab in the dark and it wounded our will
We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time

We've grown in numbers six hundred sixty six
War breaks, a sign of the end, eternally expelled
Look to the sky for knowledge, the stars align tonight
Eclipse and heaven shall fall
Now I know I've seen it all in my life of misery

Dust the apple off, savor each bite
And deep inside you know Adam was right
lust and power, indulgence, no fear
Left with is sins, how does this end?
We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time

As the prophets shed the light on what's to come the crowds did gather
Your time is precious, they explained, no time to worry, messiah's coming
Don't go to sleep tonight, darling, hold me in your arms
These will be our final days and I can't let go

Walls are falling, churches burning, women ravaged, children crying
Flesh is tearing, some still fighting
In this world of misery






"Strength Of The World"
My story starts the day they said "she can't be found"
the news so dark, heart stopped, I stood silent without a sound
It's over, she's finished, mother lies with my father and sister too
Cold-blooded, they suffered, shot down by the outlaws after you
Sorrow swallows my screams

Strength of the world - is on my shoulders
Strength of the world - is on my side
Strength of the world - the one true beholder
Ice in my veins - for those who've died

I've seen my family fade away, you've taken my whole life
There's nothing left to say

Avenge the dead kill all who cross me in my path
Suicidal, I never planned on coming back
I want it, I need it, revenge is dripping from my teeth
Need nothin', to feel power, and bring the killers to their knees
Nothin' ta lose vengeance ta gain (you know I'll never be the same)
So taste my breath I'm close behind you (so desperate on your final day)
Sorrow swallows my screams

Sitting in silence with heaven above me I prayed every night by their graves
While I thirst for closure I feel it grow stronger
I can't turn my cheek away
I stand before you; I'll sin when I have to
But now I leave your side, to avenge my family's pride

So far forever alone, a greater punishment on me has been imposed
A killer falling from the light, I'll miss you my family, I'll never be alright





Betrayed"
Passion in my eyes, I lived it everyday, but how could you go and throw it all away?
In my dreams it's me and you, it's there I saw it all come true
As time went by, faith in you grew, so one thing's left for me to do (finish you)

I feel it burn inside, burn in me like the rising sun
Lifted into the sky, took away the only thing I loved
I know after tonight, all your power crumbles in my arms
So don't worry, I'll be fine, when my life ends, I'll leave this scar

(I fell down, I need you
It’s been so hard to take
I need, I’m desperate... now)

A smoking gun in hand, now don't you realize what you've done
Put a bullet in his back, your hero since you were so young
How could you kill the man, who brought salvation through your pain
He must mean everything, to end it all in this shameful way

Passion in my eyes, I lived it everyday, but how could you go, and throw it all away?
In my dreams it's me and you, it's there, I saw it all come true
As time went by, faith in you grew, so one thing's left for me to do

I started here so young and helped you get along
Just did it for the love, and people healed through us
Don't live your life in vain, don't take it out on me
You're cracked, so just remember, I'm not your enemy
I don't deserve to fall this way, by a man who felt betrayed

I felt so down, now you're around to rescue me
Every note and every word, I'm listening (yehh)
Sometimes problems seem too deep to take (to deep to take)
Sometimes I cry thinking my future looks so bleak

Finally, together we were destined
I know what's best for us in the end
Someone hear me, someone stop me, someone listen, why aren't you listening?

Passion in my eyes, I lived it everyday, but how could you go, and throw it all away?
In my dreams it's me and you, it's there I saw it all come true
As time went by, faith in you grew, so one thing's left for me to do
In my dreams it’s me and you, its there I saw it all come true
As time went by, faith in you grew, so one things left for me to do







M.I.A."
Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise.
Living another day in disguise.
These feelings cant be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight, on tonight.

Ooooo..
Stand up and fight.


Now fighting rages on and on, to challenge me you must be strong.
I'll walk your land but don't belong, two million soldiers can't be wrong.

It's now gone but I'd been here before.
I'm far from home and I'm fighting your war.
(Not the way I pictured this, I wanted better things)
Some are scared others killing for fun, I shot a mother in front of her son.
(Take this from my consciousness and please erase my dreams)

Fight for honor, fight for your life.
Pray to God that our side is right.
You know we won but still we lose, until I make it home to you.
I see your mother still in tears we grew up so fast where did those years go.
Memories wont let you cry unless i don't return tonight.

So many soldiers on the other side, I take their live so they don't take mine.
(Scared to make it out alive now murders all i know.)
Nobody tells me all the reasons were here, I have my weapon so there's nothing to fear .
(Another day another life but nothing real to show for.)

Fight for honor, fight for your life.
Pray to God that our side is right.
You know we won but still we lose, until i make it home to you.
I see your mother still in tears we grew up so fast where did those years go.
Memories wont let you cry unless i don't return tonight.

Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise.
Living another day in disguise.
These feelings cant be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight.

Watching the death toll rise wondering how im alive.
Strangers blood on my hands, showed all i can.
There are no silent nights watching your brothers all die
To destroy all their plans with no thought of me. (No thought of me)
No thought of me.

Ohhhhh...

We'll walk the city lonely, memories that are not passing by.
A murderer walks your streets tonight.
Forgive me for my crimes.
Don't forget that I was so young, but so scared.
In the name of God and Country.
