Lyrics

1. An Industry Of Murder

Wherever you go, just follow
In the shadow of your stay.
Where you’re looking like a vulture
Watching every move.

Do you feel all of the souls?
You always will thin legs
Alone you walk among us
Your evil won’t be mad.

We’re the proper lies,
The public faults, it’s all I want.

The unholy outliers,
Got demonishing supplies.
All friends turn into enemies
And greed is at your palm.

Soon we’ll die in mothers grieve and
The story is the same.
Wherever you point your finger
Always violence causes it.

Paid the cause of something came from the gain
The unprecised rulers let the fear control your mind.

Should be boys just royal
But just burry our own songs.
That families are shadowed
Why do care should take our blind?

An industry of murder,
Scratching the right bodies.
Watch out for the bones
You’re causing new world tribe.

Just set the walls before you
The initial fire.
In history lacks the future,
Your empire will fall.

Paid the cause of something came from the gain
The unprecised rulers let the fear control your mind.

2. Slow Motion Countdown

How long, how long,
Lower than the sea
To let you go,
Too far to even try to reach.

And don’t you even try to let it go?
While everything around me is breaking down so slow.
Where will you go when we all fade away?
Where is your civil time about the sun makes to us.

So when you walk outside to see the reasons for
Do not forget the light that doesn’t make you grow.
But you’re staying home at just the saddest news
There is no side to chose.
And the numbers grow and push you down so low,
You’ll never let it lose, don’t ever let it lose.

Oh, was it a low way down to leave us behind?
So stay where you are,
Come on, write them all,
But if the skies will fall I’ll be asking for you
No one wants to see your cold the way the others do
If these are your prayers I won’t follow you through.

When the flame turns blue
Not even you will lead us through.

That’s when you will never go
If you see me, I move slow
My head rolls off,
I spread the bands where I go.

You’ll see the ones that lost get miles into
Like all your loved ones play the best part of your all.
I can help you, now, when you ask me how
I see the trouble in your way.
If you ran out time, you just stay in line and
Don’t ever let it lose, don’t ever let it lose.

Oh, was it a long way down they leave us behind
So stay where you are, come around of them all,
Now it’s not too far, they’ve been asking for you.
No one wants to see your cold the way the others do
If these are your prayers I won’t follow through.

When the flame turns blue
Not even you will lead us through.

Don’t let it lose, don’t ever let it lose.
Oh, was it a long way down, a long way down?
Not even you will lead us through.
When the flame turns blue.

3. Seven Seven

Run the seas and the quote that you already got
For the ones you chose to free and the ones that you forgot.
And the others that you already sold,
Did someone see you coming close?

When the numbers in your head is punished with every you can find
You better turn away, let it get you at the end of this day.

You are the last of the past and the stories that you never told
And the test of being part of the fun, thought that may be losing all the
lie.
I’ve got trouble on the line, believe in what I think it’s true.

All, all this time,
Break it through the lines,
All, all for one,
The sparkle brings you down.

‘cause every reason somebody got
And sometimes is hard to play alone.
It was a dream that they care,
But they cared of every way that they can.
So if you see it on the way, don’t pretend, just hide in the herd.
That’s the love of the gods and they show
Tell me just why I feel so old.
This is what is like when it’s always going hard and cold,
‘cause when you turn your head,
Let it show the end of your friend.

All, all this time,
Break it through the lines,
All, all for one,
The sparkle brings you down.
All, all this time,
Break it through the lines,
All, all for one,
The sparkle brings you down.

4. The Suits, The Law & The Uniforms

Standing at the base of the pyramid
But it’s never gonna meet the end.
You’re not supposed to know that it exists,
When nothing set us, nothing do deny.

If you leave your place in the fond days
To see the castles made of sand.
Watch it fall into the sea or either way
And you don’t see how you’re feeling okay.

Your suits, the law, the uniforms,
They agree on the same patrons.

Time is what you got,
So do you know who you’re standing on
When they say it’s cheap, that’s how hard it goes
And cause the swipe of the game it suppose.

Your suits, the law, the uniforms,
They agree on the same patrons.
You know that life was made for so much more than this
More you wait, the more lose life control.

Oh, I don’t want your job,
No, I won’t live your life,
No, I won’t live your life.
So I won’t live for you
No, I ain’t got a boat,
No, I ain’t got a boat.

I see yourselves tonight, I’ll understand
What it is that makes a man.
When I hear them say that the lots you own
I hear insistence to broke your mouths.

If we can make it through the uny,
The world’ll become a jungle in doubt.
It’s the suits, the law, the uniforms bringing grieve on the sand patrol.
You know that life was made for someone more than this,
More than wait is profit and control.

Oh, I don’t want your job,
No, I won’t live your life,
No, I won’t live your life.
So I won’t live for you
No, I ain’t got a boat,
No, I ain’t got a boat.

It’s the suits, the law, the uniforms bringing grieve on the sand patrol.
You know that life was made for someone more than this,
More than wait is profit and control.

It’s the suits, the law, the uniforms bringing grieve on the sand patrol.
You know that life was made for someone more than this,
More than wait is profit and control.

5. Endless Night

I see you right through the charade
No way I’m going back again.
Give me a name for all that’s bad
Seems to me it’s all I’ve got.

I was born to endless nights
Oh, my try, it leads in vain.
Some people think that I’m the man
Because I’ve thrown away all that I had.

I don’t think no one learns
So many tries have come to help.

I was born to endless nights
Oh, my try, it leads in vain.
Some people think that I’m the man
Because I’ve thrown away all that I had.

One last try before things fail
With my luck I’ll end up in jail.
I’m going to war, to war with myself
Putting my head, my head on the shelf.
I’m losing our battles all over again
I’m going to war, to war with myself.

I was born to endless nights
Oh, my try, is in vain.
Some people think that I’m the man
Because I’ve thrown away all that I had.

6. Hard Times Lovin’

Darling, I’m leaving now,
But it’s only for a while.
It won’t seem so long once I’m back into your arms.
Each night I go to bed
Wishing I was at home, next to you.

I know you wonder what I do when I’m gone,
‘cause, honey,
I know what you have heard
And I know what people say
And sure I’ve tasted fruit of many kind.
Once I had a piece of you
There was on me for nothing else.

Stay with me and see what tomorrow brings
‘cause, baby, I know those days I let you down
We’ll make it through, through these hard times.

Oh, baby, you and me are the same,
Slightly used and damaged, that’s okay.
I even think it’s good, no matter what they say
‘cause they got you here today, right here with me.

It was something in your eyes
That made it clear.
I knew that he was right, not a shadow of doubt
When I felt your touch.

I know those days I let you down,
But we’re gonna get through these hard times
See what tomorrow brings,
Will you love me and stay with me forever?
The pieces came together,
The point is that the people have failed by last careers,
No more faces passing by.

I know those days I let you down,
But we’re gonna get through these hard times
See what tomorrow brings,
Please love me, as they will live forever.
I got no need for no one else, no one else.

Once I got a piece of you, there was no need for nothing else,
No one else.

7. Goliath

The wolves are at your door dressed like sheep
Trying hard to hide the blood, to hide the blood from the crowd

They are trying to sell slavery as a dream to chase
Driven by fear consumer wars
No way to see their hoax

They are listening
They are watching
They wanna know what we do
They are faking our freedom
Hoping we believe it’s true

The world is full of snakes whispering in your ear
A stream of seducing words from a cloven tongue

They are trying to sell slavery as a dream to chase
Driven by fear consumer wars
No way to see their hoax

Fences at the border dividing the world in two
Have-nots feed the have-lots obeying the market rules

The rats are spreading plague, no stopping the disease
Their rotten dirty bite infecting the whole world

They are trying to sell slavery as a dream to chase
Driven by fear consumer wars
No way to see their hoax

8. Fool In The End

I remember when it hit me,
Couldn’t see a way back.
The pedal of the story
The pressure and the thrill.

What can you expect when it all began
What did you think your music was to bring?

Feel like a need a thousand years and a lot of riot to all,
The time I spent in waiting is a lifetime in itself.

‘cause so many fools now call you the friend,
I hopw you know that you are one of them.

Why did you think that you can have it all for free?
Could you see me, I was actual fun,
Did you think I’ll ever be an easy run?
Can’t you see that you’re the fool in the end,
You’re the fool in the end.

It’s been right all my life,
You lend me something I chose.
I know that I once more really raised those blues.
Sometimes you should leave and you can let it be,
It’s been a lot on my life, it ain’t something I chose,
I got the restless blues, I got the restless blues.

Why did you think that you can have it all for free?
Could you see me, I was actual fun,
Did you think I’ll ever be an easy run?
Can’t you see that you’re the fool in the end,
You’re the fool in the end.
Why did you think that you can have it all for free?
Could you see me, I was actual fun,
Did you think I’ll ever be an easy run?
Can’t you see that you’re the fool in the end,
You’re the fool in the end.

You’re the fool in the end…

9. 20/20 (Tunnel Vision)

Shaking, aching, faking, trying to be on this
Admit it to myself, I’ve got nobody left to call a friend.
I wanna drink again.

Whining, dining, crying, lying, denying, burning all the chloroform.
Holding back my tears, I never felt like that long day.
I wanna drink again.

Ain’t no light in my tunnel, but the gold tooth in the devil’s smile.
I walked a wide road a thousand times
It never led me anywhere.

Ain’t no light in my tunnel, but the gold tooth in the devil’s smile.
I walked a wide road a thousand times
It never led me anywhere.

Loosing, bragging, losing, sleeping, sliding on to that embodied
Go used to be time, I see the reaper coming round the bend.
I wanna drink again.

Willing, dealing, stealing, cheating, beating, burning all my bridges.
I ain’t got no pride, these turning hands got nothing to defend.
I wanna drink again.

I hear the lonesome sound of the guitar,
It’s coming through the wind.
A bottle keeps on sliding, weeping out my blues,
I bring years with lands.

Ain’t no light in my tunnel, but the gold tooth in the devil’s smile.
I walked a wide road a thousand times
It never led me anywhere.

I hear the lonesome sound of the guitar,
It’s coming through the wind.
A bottle keeps on sliding, weeping out my blues,
I bring years with lands.
