Low
Fuel the fire for war
It's man against mankind
Bruises that they bear
Been beaten down with time

Innocent people suffer the loss
Your broken hope so close to the cross
Sometimes you just don't know
How low...how low you can, go...
So low it's sickening
Low...low...show some mercy...

Hey you piece of shit
Just leave the kids alone
Why can't you bear
The things that we endure

Innocent people suffer the loss
Lost hope with faith to the cross
Sometimes you just don't know
How low...how low you can go
Show some sympathy
Low...low...show some mercy

I don't like you for your warped demeted ways
I hope they lock you down so you never get away
Low...low...show some sympathy
Low...low...show some mercy...back to top
Legions (In Hiding)
Music: Peterson
Lyrics: Billy, James
Domestically violent
With razor blade smiles
Infested with anger
A well hidden crime
Teaching those lessons so cruel
Ah, the torment spreads
War inside my head
Please just set me free
You call this... a family?
Battered, abusive
There's no wrong or right
When you're enslaved in your room
Hiding from demons
In urban daylight
Knowing that they'll be here soon
Confusion and bruises
And scars left for life
When physical evidence fades
Silently screaming
Just to be loved
Their innocence taken away
Ah, the torment spreads
War inside my head
Please just set me free
You call this... a family?
Solos: Eric, James
Virtues are shattered
By parents they trust
When all love they give is misued
The next generation
The damaged will learn
To keep spinning wheels of abuse
Ah, the torment spreads
War inside my head
Please just set me free
You call this... a family?back to top
Hail Mary
I am alive
I feel dirt in my eyes
There's no escape when redemption is lost
I'm not a saint
There's no use looking
No sins to deny
Just my will to go on

Arms of darkness
Embrace me in madness
In my life it's manditory
Hard to resist you
I still can't forgive you
For sins that I cannot wash away

Hail mary full of grace
Throw some light upon this race
Intertwining final breath
Now...in the hour of death

Bound by lies
Of constant denial
Pay for my sins that I bear for a child
I'm not a saint
There's no use denying
Falling from grace
Is my reason to go on

Hail mary full of grace
Push me down, and kick me in my face
Intertwining final breath
Now...in the hour of deathback to top
Trail of Tears
See the sun as the day is done
Life is of the broken ones
Some will stray as time will come

All their lives, they live it well
Red man proud and giving hell
Some stand and shining tall

Can you hear them call...

See the sun as it's setting still
Tears fall from a warrior
Damn those who I feel

Set a trail to the promised land
Mother and child holding hand in hand
Through the snow or through the sands

All across the land...

Full monn's rising from the sky, a warrior's riding
Ride with the wind
So far away, the spirits will guide you
No more sorrow
Don't look back, your freedom will follow
Flying so free
Can't you see...on the trail of tears

Full monn's rising from the sky, a warrior's riding
Ride with the wind
So far away, the spirits will guide you
No more sorrow
Don't look back, your freedom will follow
Flying so free
Can't you see...on the trail of tearsback to top
Shades of War
Burial of a human being
A man before a boy
Born to fight in another man's world
Not a world where there's war

Born religiously
Truth is what they see
Death won't come from peace
Who feuls this war?

Scared ground of life
Burnt remains of the dead
Bodies lay to rest
Spirits of the earth

Rancid man, burned alive
Too blind to see what's wrong from right
Locked inside this cage
So many times blood has poured
Walk with shadows
Hear the shades of war...forever more

Brought into this world of bitter pain
Are we safe...or just insane

Rancid man, burned alive
Too blind to see what's wrong from right
Darkness veils their way
So many times blood has poured
Walk with shadows
Hear the shades of war...forever moreback to top
P.C.
Damn the machine the system's corrupted
Abusive power is everywhere
Our elected officals, pass laws to help
But who's paying them off
And in the end, we the people pay
Such a heavy price, just for being alive

And if this country was really free
We'd make paper from hemp and let the forest live
But corporate America, and billion dollar industries
Have so much power
Yet they stand to lose
Too much fucking money
There's nothing we can do... but...

Take back all that we've lost
At any price that it costs
Our freedom was worth fighting for
Resistance now or nevermore

[Solo: James]

And what about the CIA
What the fuck is their real job anyway
Starting civil wars in Third World countries
Importing heroin from the far east
Talk about cocaine, neither kept away
From the youths of today... now
There's nothing we can do... but...

Take back all that we've lost
At any price that it costs
Our freedom was worth fighting for
Resistance now or nevermoreback to top
Dog Faced Gods
================
Living my life on borrowed time
Watching my dreams disappear
My fists slowly clench as my mind seeks control
My body trembles in fear
Life was looking up for me when I left home
It seems like yesterday
Now I'll never go back there again
Here is where I'll stay
Nobody can hear you scream or shout
Once you're in, you won't come out
You will never see the light of day
I'm the hunter, you're my prey !
Watching the clash between the forces below
>From up in the planes we're flying
Survivors are taken as prisoners of war
The others are slowly dying
I shiver as we strap on our parachutes
We line up to jump out the doors
We're already there and there's no turning back
I fall to the scene of the war
Nobody can hear you scream or shout
Once you're in, you won't come out
You will never see the light of day
I'm the hunter, you're my prey !
You can see me, flying right over your head
Try to stop me, you can't cause your armies are dead
To cross the blood red trenches of the dead below
Do or die, Hell's the place you'll go
Living my life on borrowed time
Watching my dreams disappear
My fists slowly clench as my mind seeks control
My body trembles in fear
Life was looking up for me when I left home
It seems like yesterday
Now I'll never go back there again
Here is where I'll stay
Nobody can hear you scream or shout
Once you're in, you won't come out
You will never see the light of day
I'm the hunter, you're my prey !back to top
All I Could Bleed
I like to dominate
I create your fate
Many years gone by
I rule society
You cannot be me
I am the master

Can't you hear me, breathing for you
Do not ignore
Reach out to me, put your knife through me
Watch me bleed for you...yeah...right...

Try to retaliate
I release your hate
Why don't you bleed for me
What do you need to prove
I can see through you
You're not the master

Can't you see me, dying fo you
Do not ignore
Right out to me, put your knife through me
Watch me bleed for you...dying...dying
All I could bleed

Can't you understand
Grab life by the hand
Where's democtacy
I gave all I could bleed

Fuck government policy
Land is of the free
Don't take away
Your two bit society
Dying for your greed
Now watch them bleed...
Yeah...all I could bleedback to top
Chasing Fear
Paralized
And never coming back
Even when your eyes are open
Everything turns to black
Soon forgotten senses
Incubates the soul
Hiding from the light fantastic
Waiting for the show

Contemplation
Reality starts to fade
Creeping stare behind dead eyes
As the minutes burn the day
Inactive wandering
Still can't get a grip
Can God hear you cry
Before you start to slip

Chasing fear
Human mind unglued
Unaware
That fear is chasing you

Endless waiting
For nothing to appear
Even when your eyes are shut
The visions are so clear
Harmonious dissidence
Obscure reckoning
Did you hear that final note
Of silent suffering

Chasing fear
Human mind unglues
Disappear
The sickness inside of you
Chasing fear
Nothing you can do
Unaware
That fear is chasing you

Loss of function
Withering of the will
Condemned to a state of nothing
Moving in for the kill
Brain cells slowly boil
With memories intertwined
Listening to that empty space
Atrophy of the mind

Chasing fear
Human mind unglues
Disappear
The sickness inside of you
Chasing fear
Nothing you can do
Unaware that fear is chasing youback to top
Ride
Doesn't know what to do anymore
Jesus makes love to the spike
A trick for a fix and feeling so sick
Just can't seem to get right

Once he was the king of his world
A wrold without any order
Sold it all without thinking twice
Just for a spoonful of water

Ride, ride on through
Ride, ride through you
Ride, ride on through
Ride right through you

Slowly scratching away at the world
Fearless when he is stoned
Obsessed by the dreams of what could've been
Trapped in his kingdom alone

Ride, ride on through
Ride, ride through you
Ride, ride on through
Ride, right through youback to top
