Ice Nine Kills

Last Chance to Make Amends tracks

Lyrics

1. ...AND OUR STORY BEGINS

It happed Friday night. Local Police found two cars parked in a darkened cemetery.

The Police also searched the car and found bottles of Beer, and Vodka.

And the more damning evidence,

Liquid Anabolic Steroids, along with seventeen hypodermic needles.

A 49 year old man went Berserk last night, armed with a twelve-gouge shotgun.

His face, bruised and bloodied, cried for Police brutality.

But as the investigation continued...

Officials say,

The Police did nothing wrong.

(Did nothing wrong) [x3]




2. LAST WORDS

Here goes the story of a kid we thought we knew
He hid a hate inside and had a state of mind
That put him in his grave
It began with his friends
They never noticed the despair in his eyes
From the pressure
His life was etched in stone
Before he made a choice of his own

And hes dedicated
For everyday that hes made it on his own
In his fathers eyes hes a pair of dice
He wont be number one
He cant be number one

So he tries to comply
With everything they've ever asked
And his life is stitched with one-way tickets
To places he don't want to visit
He says I'm never gonna be perfect
Maybe I don't deserve his trust
but I'm doing the best I can
I've never dealt with such pressure
Feels like my whole life's etched in stone
Before Ive made a choice of my own

So save your breath cause you'll
need it when you hang from a rope
Cause of death:
Obvious from your suicide note
The last words that filled the page:
if no one will listen than no one
will miss me when I'm gone
Across town his dad falls asleep all alone
Never knowing he was never going to come home
The last thoughts that filled his head
I'll tell him I'm sorry I'll
say I regret what I did
It's your life
I'll live my own life instead

His bedrooms filled with emptiness tonight
As the silence cuts through like a knife
Knowing hes not there




3. CHAPTER TWO

Regret
Every grateful word
From every song you've heard for
you misunderstood
I never meant to make you feel this..
Good things never..
Last night you said
We could spend the night in your bed room
is all I want in my heads
spinning like this song out of..
control is all you have in this relation-
ship is sinking quick
as your sick blood runs through your veins
You pored my life down the drain

You said
You're a lush and I bet you want to touch me
I regret every memory




4. BUILD A BRIDGE AND JUMP OFF IT

Lonely and restless on the coldest of nights
With these thoughts on my mind that keep pulling me down.
I'm only fooling everyone else
So that everyone else turns their back, turns their back on me.

So let go of these feelings that I'm keeping inside.
I'll hold on cause I'm feeling like I'm barely alive.
Lay back as this pain takes over me.
Broke down cause my head is spinning out of control.
Nineteen years and I got nothing to show.
We're only getting older now.

This pain seems forgotten
But inside I'm rotting, I'm rotting
Thinking of all this time
left to waste, then die.
The only thing I know for sure
Is I don't care anymore.

And when I'm gone
Well, I hope you have the strength to move on.
Angry, but I'm told to not complain.
Reckless, but I'm better off this way.
This is not what I want, but I'll just bite my tongue.
Now I'm hungry (hungry) but I'm too tired to eat.
Tired (tired) but I'm too hungry to sleep.
We're only getting older now.

This pain seems forgotten
But inside I'm rotting, I'm rotting
Thinking of all this time
left to waste, then die.
The only thing I know for sure
Is I don't care anymore.

And it hurts
Save me cause I'm drowning
Give me more time like it
People keep on counting
It feels like I'm blinded now
As they shut me out
But I'm trying to see
Please make this stop

This pain seems forgotten
But inside I'm rotting, I'm rotting
Thinking of all this time
left to waste, then die.
I'm not going to know what I'm doing here
So why can't you give me a sign?
So hold your breath now, swimming in an ocean of fear
My last regret is never knowing why I'm here.




5. I DO AND I DON'T

We started off by talking
About the tattoos on her back
And the bands that we both hate
And anything to make the moment last
Hoping you might spend a night
To watch our feelings collide
Seems like summer's just a state of mind

I'm gonna make sure we never fall apart
We're not trying hard enough
So this can last forever
Do you remember...

Crashing parties just to get our drinks for free
You would touch your skirt and tell me you had nothing on underneath
But all these memories
Are burning me alive
Knowing, you and I might never get this right
(but we're gonna have to try)
And if this promise was a fading dream
I'd suffocate myself to sleep
For one more night of silence next to... you

I'm gonna make sure we never fall apart
You're not trying hard enough
So this can't last forever
I'll give my best shot holding onto what we've got
I need to tell her that I'm ready
Whether she's ready or not
Are you ready or not
(or not)
Well are you ready or not?
(Well are you ready or not, I'm ready, I'm ready)

We tried, so hard that all the walls we built up...
We're fake, 'cause your slipping away
Like a car on ice, we're spinning out of control
Like an open wound, we need some time to heal
Like a cigarette, her pleasure's worth the risk
Like a crowded room, my presence won't be missed
She don't care, and it's not fair
That I can't forget you
Just knowing I've met you
You're out of my life, but I'm moving on
Well, she's moving on
Soon I'll be gone, I'll be a million miles away
I need to see you, need to touch you
Like we used to misbehave
If your picture's worth a thousand words
I'll cut open my vocal chords
One more night of silence next to you
Just to spend another night with you

[Girl speaking]
We say all these words, we make all these promises
But I need to know, can we really make this last?... forever?

I'm gonna make sure we never fall apart
You're not trying hard enough
So this can't last forever
I'll give my best shot holding onto what we've got
I need to tell her that I'm ready
Whether she's ready or not
(Well are you ready or not?)




6. TONIGHT WE DANCE

(Interlude)




7. MURDERS AND ACQUISITIONS

Please don't forget to fall asleep tonight.
So I can make a tomb of your bed.
I know I've run out of good intentions
(THIS IS YOUR FAULT!)
So I'll have to use the bad one's instead.

I've got a motive, and an alibi.
This isn't over, until you tell me why you didn't trust me.
So show some respect.
Cause breaking your promise is easy as breaking your neck.

Next time we meet, I'm taking what you took from me.
I'll take it because enough is enough.
And your time is up.

Please don't forget to fall asleep tonight.
So I can make a tomb of your bed.
I know I've run out of good intentions
(THIS IS YOUR FAULT!)
So I'll have to use the bad one's instead.

Well at first glance, well you two look like perfect friends.
I guess I didn't understand what friends do.
But I do.

So here's your last chance, for you and me to make amends.
Why don't you come clean (COME CLEAN) And tell me the truth?
(Tell me the truth. TELL ME THE TRUTH!)
I'm coming for you...

Please don't forget to fall asleep tonight.
So I can make a tomb of your bed.
I know I've run out of good intentions
(THIS IS YOUR FAULT!)
So I'll have to use the bad one's instead.

(Alright. This is what you want. This is what you get.
This is what you're getting now. You were mine)

I hope he leaves you stranded on the side of the road.
Feeling used and alone, and never knowing how much more you can take.
So you sleep with the first guy you meet.
Who agrees just to boost your esteem.

But the condom breaks...

And nine months later you're alone in your bed.
With a kid of your own, and a gun to your head.
Thinking I shouldn't have left him. I regret what I said.
You can pretend that you're sorry,
but you're better off pretending you're dead

Please don't forget to fall asleep tonight.
So I can make a tomb of your bed.
I know I've run out of good intentions
(THIS IS YOUR FAULT!)
So I'll have to use the bad one's instead.

You brought this on yourself.
Last chance to make amends...




8. WHAT I REALLY LEARNED IN STUDY HALL

Waking up right next to you
Is the last thing that I want to do
Knowing you don't care
Cause you're spineless and too much to take
And my kindness was a big mistake
It gets me nowhere
And Ive been reading through your letters
Hoping that you'd never make up your mind
And I wish I was a boy again
Where I could still pretend you were mine

I'm drinking too much these days it never seems to help
Cause you say Ill never change
And that I'm the only one who I care about when you say

That you're leaving and you're ready to go
Cause you thought I was cheating
But I don't think you want to know
Well I think that things are better this way
When it seems like you're breathing
But you're already dead to me

Making up my mind on you
Is something I wish I could do
But you're so damn thoughtless and I'm not going to lose
To any of these games you play
Cause no one likes you anyway
You're just a faceless name
So what will you say
When I tell you that your life's like a book
Its torn and tattered sitting on a shelf
Where no one wants to look

And it seems
That this is what we want
As your face begins to haunt my memories
And seep into my future dreams
Where no one can hear you scream




9. CINDER BLOCKS AND THANK YOU KNOTS

Please take me back to the way things were before
I swear to God were causing
Permanent damage or more
As I try to fight these urges inside
(we keep drinking until we can't recall)
But I can't stop
(your so sexy when you're out of control)
Cause I want you
(so give up and give in cause I know you want me
To take your breath away)
Lets get drunk and disguise
Our wasted miserable lives
Made better from lack of trust
And excess lust combined
When were together
Cause I burn every bridge I cross
And I'd feel better
Jumping off
When you don't see the signs, that theres
No chance that
We can survive
This was over before it began, I can't
Live like this when
You don't understand
That you're the queen of lust and
I stormed the castle but
It was empty and cold
And its decaying like our insides
I hope we fall asleep
For the last time tonight
I like you more when you're laid on the floor
Passed out when I'm not
Theres not a single good thought in my body
Have you ever been lonely enough to
Think that this wasn't
Only just luck
And won't we feel better when we
Soak our skulls with
Alcohol to forget about this night




10. FAMILY UNTIES

Do you ever feel guilty when you lying there in bed
Thinking about the perfect life we could have had
Good from the start but we fell apart
And now we're all alone instead
I should seen the storm coming from a mile away
I should have barred the doors just to make you stay
I can't stand the raining tears
Don't want to hear the anger every day

You say you'll make it up to me somehow someday
I shouldn't think about the passed
But the passed won't go away

I don't want the clouds to roll in
When the sun's been out all day
I never realized the things we had
Until you took them all away
I just wanted you to know that
What you do affects us all
I should have seen the ending and stopped pretending
Cause the writing's on the wall

Did you ever think about the consequences
Leaving all of us so defenseless
You can't deal with complications
It's not fair no more vacations
How can you just sit there tongue-tied
With nothing to say
Can you give back our fucking house you gave away
I got no respect for you
Did you think through the things you should't say

So fuck off
I'm not changing anything
No words can describe my feeling
I can't keep these thoughts up on the shelf
Think twice before you sell our house
And every memory we've had to share
Go and share them with yourself
