Lyrics


1. FADE FROM BLACK

(Instrumental)




2. HEAVY LIES THE CROWN

Heavy lies the crown upon the heads of kings
Heavy is the price we pay for petty things
Always feel their eyes burning through your back
Always take the blame for what they lack

Heavy lies the crown

Biting at your heels never let you rest
Live to twist the knife when you least expect
Heavy lies the crown upon your weary brow
Heavy is the toll always due right now

Heavy lies the crown

Pretenders beware!
Strike you down where you stand!

Heavy lies the crown




3. BEAR WITNESS

Fill our heads all full of lies
Bow to those we should despise
Taught a history not our own
Martyrs who we should dethrone

Heroes made from evil men
Made immortal by legend
Self righteous men with petty wars
Gladly turned their souls to whores

Fill our heads all full of lies
Bow to those we should despise
Taught a history not our own
Martyrs who we should dethrone

Sickened by this cowardice
Sickened by this lack of sense
Tell the truth
Let us bear witness

We never learn from our mistakes
We never learn from our mistakes




4. KNIFE WOUND

Go on twist the knife
I know I never been right
I don't live how you'd like
Just keep your mouth shut
I don't care what you're trying to say
Fucked it up a hundred ways
My road is mine to walk
Go choke on all your talk

New wounds on old scars
They'll heal soon and i'll move on down the road...

Don't need what you've got to give
Don't care how you want me to live
Don't want what you're trying to sell
Take it with you to hell
Eat shit with a grin
Don't care if i lose or win
The road's long, i'll get to the end
I won't get dragged down no more

New wounds on old scars
They'll heal soon and i'll move on down the road...

New wounds on old scars
They'll heal soon next time i'll keep my guard

I don't want your money
I don't want your life
I need you charity
Like a wound from a knife




5. COME ALIVE

In the dead of night
Hear my angel call
Darkness come alive
Sing to sleep my soul
Take away my pain
Take away my woe
Darkness come alive
Sing to sleep my soul

Darkness come alive

In the dead of night
See the shadows crawl
Darkness come alive
Sing to sleep my soul
In the shadow's eyes
Watching over me
Darkness come alive
Please sing my soul to sleep

Footsteps on the floor
Voices in the walls
Shapeless forms
Waiting in the dark
Afraid to open eyes
Fear what's staring back
Death sits waiting for me
In this endless black

Death's sweet lullabye
Death's sweet lullabye
Death's sweet lullabye
To the darkness pray...

My nightmares never end
My nightmares never end
My nightmares never end
Sing to sleep my soul




6. NIGHT HOWLER

(Instrumental)




7. CROOKED PATH

A bastard heart
A wayward soul
Damned to walk alone
Godless serpent
With no heart
Doomed forever roam

It matters not how hard I try
Cursed to live this crooked life
A slave to sin, a slave to wrath
Cursed to walk this crooked path

Winds of hell blow
Guide my way home
Never set me free

Light of heaven
Be my shelter
Please watch over me

It matters not how hard I try
Cursed to live this crooked life
A slave to sin, a slave to wrath
Cursed to walk this crooked path




8. LIONS

Don't let these fuckers grind you down
Don't let these bastards kill your soul
Bottom feeders in the worst way
A bunch of fucking turncoats
You gave them more than they ever gave back
And now everyone knows

Don't let these fuckers grind you down
Don't let these leeches suck you dry
You've got the heart of a lion
You've got the strength to survive
Time is their true punishment
They'll eat each other alive

Don't let them grind you down

Choke on all their lies
Wasted all their lives
Lowest of the low
Cowards so beneath you now

You've got the heart of a lion
You've got the heart of a lion
You've got the heart of a lion
You've got the heart of a lion




9. THE EQUALIZER

Black horizon
Fiery dawn
The equalizer
Swallows all

Equalizer coming down
The equalizer is coming around

Devils hellmouth
The sky caves in
Your death starts creeping up
When your life begins

Equalizer coming down
The equalizer is coming around
It's coming around




10. NIGHT LURKER

(Instrumental)




11. JEALOUS GOD

All you have, I gave you,
All you are, I made you,
All you've done, I pushed you,
All you've ever won, you owe to me

All you've seen, I showed you,
All you've heard, I told you,
All you've learned, I taught you,
All you want, you begged for on your knees
On your knees
On your knees
On your knees

All your pain, you caused it,
All your heart, you lost it,
All your soul, you sold it,
All your bridges burned beyond repair

All your words, you'll swallow,
All your threats, so hollow,
All your faith, untested,
All your squandered life you'll never learn

Jealous god you'll never learn




12. MERCY

Mercy

Death growing inside me
Feel it coming on strong
Lift me up to god above
Oh lord where I belong

Death growing inside me
Feel it coming on strong
Take me down to hell below
Oh lord it won't be long

Mercy

Death growing inside me
Feel it coming on strong
Lift me up to god above
Oh lord where I belong

Death walks behind you
Feel it coming on strong
Take me down to hell below
Oh lord it won't be long

Mercy




13. NIGHT BECKONS

(Instrumental)




14. BLOOD AVENGER

The truth asleep
Rest hidden deep
Beneath the sands
The desert keeps

A thousand years
Beneath earth and stone
Hid from those
Which it would dethrone

Gods and men
Like snakes entwined
Yet the crooked cross
Begat the lies

A gift from high
Hidden our sight
The lies like wool
Blind our eyes

Blood avengers
The truth will set us free

Prophets false from greed be born
Defiling all to which you've sworn

Blood avengers
The truth will set us free




15. BLOODSUCKER

On the wings of dawn
We ride the thunderclap
What's been stolen from us
The time has come to take it back

Kill the bloodsuckers
Kill the bloodsuckers

Vengeance on the bloodsuckers
Pull them down and out from under
Battle cries in the first morning light
Onward to glory we ride

Kill the bloodsuckers
Kill the bloodsuckers




16. UNTITLED

(Instrumental)




17. ROTTER

Step right up, get in line
Your time is running out
Hurry up and meet the end
We're whoring the reaper out

Death disguised as glamour
All you desire is yours
We'll sell you your mortality
You'll jump in the fire willingly

Rotter eating your soul from the inside out
Rotter paying for premium death

You're falling apart and content
You're dying and we're getting rich
You're fucked up beyond all repair
We're laughing cuz we sent you there

Death disguised as glamour
All you desire is yours
Buy a ticket to your grave
You jump in the fire willingly

Rotter eating your soul from the inside out
Rotter paying for premium death
