Hail Destroyer

Tear us down
Welcome destruction with open arms
It's all to static. bring it on, bring it on
Routine's so boring it makes me scream. tear us down. just tear us down
When fate just pushes us along
Children of nothing, this is our song.
Hail destroyer. hail destroyer. hail destroyer. we're rising up from ashes
Erase the comfort, erase the crutch
When given nothing we appreciate so much
A wake up call. you just want to scream. tear us down. just tear us down
On our own terms of right and wrong
Children of nothing, this is our song
Hail destroyer. hail destroyer. hail destroyer. we're rising up from ashes
Hail destroyer. hail destroyer. hail destroyer. our lives begin when we fall down
Keep me incomplete
Keep it corroded the rust, the dust
Keep me incomplete
All sense of order can self destruct
Keep me incomplete
Reduced to rubble and time to shine.
Keep me incomplete
Tear us down and carry on
Children of nothing, this is our song
Hail destroyer. hail destroyer. hail destroyer. we're rising up from ashes
Hail destroyer. hail destroyer. hail destroyer. our lives begin when we fall down




Harem of Scorpions

Starving - like a pack of wolves in the city
We'll chase our future down the barrel of a gun
To what end?
Haunted - by the siren song of the concrete

Never ending travel
One mile at a time is our lives

No more dead time
Look outside, look outside, dream me away
No more dead time
Cast aside, cast aside, throw me away

Slaughtered - countless hours in a lifetime
We'll mourn these minutes left in unmarked graves, respect paid
Charging - through the forest of steel trees and asphalt
No rest for the wicked, no breaks in the chain
Let's ride

No more dead time
Look outside, look outside, dream me away
No more dead time
Cast aside, cast aside, throw me away

The greatest thing you've ever done, is made yourself truely happy
Not doing it for anyone
It's your life to live as you choose

The greatest thing you've ever done
And the greatest thing you've ever done
Lived your life and never felt regret
Lived your life, not quitting yet
Without a set of goals, where no agenda lies
Just a followed heart and don't apologize
It's the greatest thing when you realize

Haunted - at the thought of another day wasted
When love is never lost, no matter at what cost
Get free
Starving - like a pack of wolves
We'll live our lives screaming
No more dead time




Deathsmarch

Day after day, another minute sold
Day after day, feel the bite from the wind and the cold
Seems fair enough, an even trade
Your time stolen for a minimum wage

Night after night, with an end in sight
Night after night, just in time for the death of the light
The greatest times you've ever known
Never scared, never go it alone
Night after night, this feeling never grows older
Know you could do this over and over and..

Hey World, you'll break me
Bring it on, give me your best shot
Hey World, you'll never break me
Try your hardest, try your hardest

Day after day, keeping you awake
Day after day, pushing on just as much as it takes
Feeling worn beyond your age
Is it worth it for the minimum wage?

Night after night, just about to break
Night after night, had as much as a person can take
The best release you've ever known
Never tired, never going home
Night after night, this feeling never grows older
Know you could do this over and over and..

Hey World, you'll break me
Bring it on, give me your best shot
Hey World, you'll never break me
Try your hardest, try your hardest

Hey World, you'll break me
Step it up, give me your best shot
Hey World, you'll never break me
Try your hardest, try your hardest

Tonight's our night, we'll never go it alone
Tonight's our night, we're never going home
With the greatest friends I swear I've known
Yeah

Hey World, you'll break me
Bring it on, give me your best shot
Hey World, you'll never break me
Try your hardest, try your hardest

Hey World, you'll break me
Step it up, give me your best shot
Hey World, you'll never break me
Try your hardest, try your hardest




Regret

I swear to god, I never meant to break your heart dear
If I had to say, couldn't tell you what I was doing
I left one day, for open waters on a course to ruin
No land in sight, I just drifted where the tides would pull me
No compass or light, life on a boat will make you miss the country

Anchors aweigh!
Anchors aweigh!
I'm here to stay, my days at sea are done

I've sailed an ocean of mistakes
Been given so many chances
Never again will I set sail towards regret

If I could take it all back - oh no
Unlive your past will only rob your future
If I could take it all back - oh no
Unlive the past would never get us to now

I swear to god, I never meant to mess you around girl
Never was my plan, been floating two years or so
Glad I made it to land, despite the rocks and the undertow
No maps or chart, sometimes a journey just takes that long
Call this a fresh start, show that I'm right, prove all those wrong

Anchors aweigh!
Anchors aweigh!
I'm here to stay, my days at sea are done

I've sailed an ocean of mistakes
Been given so many chances
Never again will I set sail towards regret

If I could take it all back - oh no
Unlive your past will only rob your future
If I could take it all back - oh no
Unlive the past would never get us to now




Bastard’s Waltz

Split lips and caught restless
Broken hands, broken nose
Sweat soaked and salt stained
The threads of our clothes

Relationships tested
Broken hands, broken hearts
The one driving factor
The sum of all parts

Just trying to live, trying to breath
Coughing up blood
Just trying to live, trying to breath
Coughing up blood

Lack of sleep as a weakness
Broken hands, broken back
Still speaking our minds, dear
Still lacking all tact

One, two, three

Just trying to live, trying to breath
Coughing up blood
Just trying to live, trying to breath
Coughing up blood

Coughing up blood
Coughing up blood
Coughing up blood
Coughing up...

When it's all said and done
When we're burnt up like stars
When it stops making sense to me
When we're covered in scars

Just trying to live, trying to breath
Coughing up blood
Just trying to live, trying to breath
Coughing up blood
Just trying to live, trying to breath
Coughing up blood
Just trying to live, trying to breath
Coughing up blood

Coughing up blood
Coughing up blood
Coughing up blood
Coughing up blood

Coughing up blood
Coughing up blood
Coughing up blood
Coughing up blood




Sorceress

Off my chest
Little girl you're at the top of my shit list
I swear to god you're the worst piece of trash I've met
In a long while
All the back talk
And the lies
You couldn't speak the truth if you tried
I'm surprised you even show your face around
After whats gone down

Hey hey you little train wreck
Your crying wolf shit is over rated
Hey hey you little train wreck
That you're the worst is an understatement

Burn those bridges down
I swear little girl you'll set the city on fire

Off my chest
That shit you talked got me pretty god damned stressed
Worst part is I'm just one case in a long line
That you've fucked with
Worse stories can't compare
To all the shit that you've done in a year
I swear karma's gonna burn you down like a witch
Paybacks a bitch

Hey hey you little train wreck
Your crying wolf shit is over rated
Hey hey you little train wreck
That you're the worst is an understatement

Burn those bridges down
I swear little girl you'll set the city on fire

If you lit a match for every lie that you told
Everything around you will be engulfed in flames

Oh, god I've got to get this...
Off my chest
Oh little girl you're at the top of my shit list
I swear to Christ you're the worst person I've ever met
In my entire life
Shit talker two timer
You're called out as a god damn liar
Every single word that you say is untrue
Every one hates you

Hey hey you little train wreck
Your crying wolf shit is over rated
Hey hey you little train wreck
That you're the worst is an understatement




Lucifer’s Rocking Chair

Outreaching the coldest left side
The city sleeps beneath me
Unrested, the longest night drives
The city sleeps tonight

Help, help me out some
Help, help me get this going

A thousand miles by night, straight as the crow flies
Could be a losing fight but never realized
Chasing right and wrong, countless miles from home
Without an end in sight, this is a battle song

Outreaching the coldest left side
The city sleeps beneath me
Unrested, the longest night drives
The city sleeps tonight

Help, help me out some
Help, help me get this going

Drive until the morning light, straight as the crow flies
A thousand pints of tar, left tired burnt eyes
The distance always long, keep rolling on
The highway's our own war, this is a battle song

A simple choice in life
Choose the left or the right
A simple choice in life
Choose the left or the right
Just keep it brutal

Outreaching the coldest left side
The city sleeps beneath me
Unrested, the longest night drives
The city sleeps tonight

Steady living the left hand
Steady living the left hand
Steady living the left hand
Steady living, the best that I can




Let It Pour

Huh!
Here comes the rain
Pourin' down on you, pourin' down on me
Darkened skies
Block out the light, yeah
Let the rain pour down

This water, this pressure still risin'
This water, this pressure still risin'

Here comes the storm
Crushin' down on you, crushin' down on me
And these clouds
Dedicate tonight, yeah
Let the rain pour down

This water, this pressure still risin'
This water, this pressure still risin'

And there will be no sunshine
For a hundred days
We're all here drownin'
There will be no sunshine
Every day's the same
We're all here drownin'
There will be no sunshine
Every day just rain
We're all here drownin'

This day will be the death OF ME
This (?) will be the death OF ME




Smiling Politely

It's all brand new
A precious start with the newest beginning, oh
So fresh and true
You'll just be fine if you let it to set in

(Yeah) This plague will thrive on the weary and beat down
(Yeah) This plague will thrive in the heart of us all

Give me shelter
This place is killing me
Give me shelter
This place is killing me

Your weakness is fear, we're preying on it
Your weakness is fear
You're such a brave start and now we're preying on it
You're such a brave start and now we're preying on it

Just passing through
So out of place and feeling so uninvited, oh
Sad but true
Histories wiped out, we'll shrug it off like the next man

(Yeah) This plague will thrive on the weary and beat down
(Yeah) This plague will thrive in the heart of us all

Give me shelter
This place is killing me
Give me shelter
This place is killing me

Your weakness is fear, we're preying on it
Your weakness is fear
You're such a brave start and now we're preying on it
You're such a brave start and now we're preying on it
You're such a brave start and now we're preying on it
You're such a brave start..

It's all brand new
A precious start with the newest beginning, oh
Cold and blue
Look on your face when all the eagles descend

Full of doubt, self conscious rides
Even at its best, this is a suicide

(Yeah) This plague will thrive on the weary and beat down
(Yeah) This plague will thrive in the heart of us all

Your price is set
You're bought and sold
Trapped in debt
This is a choke hold

Your price is set
You're bought and sold
Trapped in debt
This is a choke hold

Your price is set
You're bought and sold
Trapped in debt
This is a choke hold




Pray For Darkness

Out in the sunshine, I can't hack it
Give me the night with a black jean jacket

Yeah
Yeah

Out in the day light, over rated
Block out the sun because I fucking hate it

Pray for darkness

Out in the sunshine, I can't hack it
Hide me away in a darkened casket

Give me pale skin
Give me dark eyes
Let the moon rise

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah

Sleep all day
Party every night
Never grow old
Never die

Out in the sunshine, I can't hack it
Midnight forever in a black jean jacket
When the night time is the best time
Pray for darkness




PMA ‘Til I’m DOA

I might get dragged
There's times when life will mess me around
I'll tell you this here
Nothing's gonna bring me down

You're either living or dying
You're either living or dying
And as long as I'm breathing
I'll sing these words at the top of my lungs

Hey, hey, hey
Everyday I'm alive
Hey, hey, hey
Is the best day of my life

On the eve of destruction
Firmly gripped upper hand
Done our best to shake off the sickness

I might get dragged
There's times when patience's hard to be found
I'll say this here
Nothing's going to bring me down

There's no need to complain
Save your horseshoes and wishes
We'll make our own luck
We'll shape our future

Hey, hey, hey
Everyday I'm alive
Hey, hey, hey
Is the best day of my life

Annihilation faced without fear
Because I've lived to the fullest
Without remorse or an ounce of regret
I could die tomorrow

I might get dragged
There's times when I'll get knocked to the ground
I'll scream this here
Nothing's gonna bring me down

We're all given choices
Shake it up or just exist until you're gone
Get busy or get dead
That's my word, I'll stand by what I said

You're either living or dying
You're either living or dying
And as long as I'm breathing I'll live these words 'til the day that die

Everyday I'm alive's the best day of my life




Zed’s Dead, Baby

Honestly, I hope we all survive
I hope we all make it alive and I swear that I'm never coming back here
And I know that one day will be brighter
And I know that one day will be fine

Promise me, that you will try to survive
That you will make it alive
When I leave I know I'm never coming back here

And I know that one day will be brighter
The clouds will part and one day will be fine
And I know one day I'll see sunshine

Better off dead
She told me I'd be better off dead
She swore that I'd be better off dead
She screamed that I'd be better off, dead and buried

Held breath but it never got better
Hoped best, but I never did try

Pray for me, pray that I'll make it alive
Pray that I'll even survive
Ask your god what's the chance of getting out of here

And I know that one day will be brighter
And I know that one day will be fine

Constantly, I can't believe I'm alive
I can't believe I survived
I left running and I'm never coming back here

And I know that one day will be brighter
The clouds will part and one day will be fine
And I know that one day I'll see sunshine

Better off dead
She told me I'd be better off dead
She swore that I'd be better off dead
She screamed that I'd be better off, dead and buried

Held breath but it never got better
Just left at the very first sign
Held breath but it never got better
Never spoke just kept it inside
Held breath but it never got better
Hoped best but I never did try

Honestly, I hope we all survive
I hope we all make it alive

And I know that one day will be brighter
And I know that one day will be fine
And I know that one day will be brighter
And I know that one day will be fine
