Track Name: 1970
I was crawling my way out the bloody red doors, not sure if I’d like to stay here. When an angel appeared at the back of my car, and I drove out through the desert to count all the stars. I hate this damn world and I hate all the people and I’d rather gun down all of God’s lovely creatures. I was thrown in the gutters, I was tortured each day. All the things I could do if I could have my own way.
Track Name: Glory
Can’t see the sun again, waiting for this all to end. Torn apart and broken down, I smile. Wake up in this empty time, sealed in these eyes of mine. Close the door and shut it all away. Lay upon this burning ground, world is dying without a sound. Close my eyes and let it fade away. Left out in the rain again, I’m waiting for this time to end. Close the door and let it end this way.
Track Name: Last Days Of The War/SECT IV
Growing older, nothing lasts here. Help me die today. You’re screaming at me, running crazy. Drawing circles into the ground. And I’m falling apart once again, all the people are turning away. And I’ve seen all I can and I don’t understand, why did you kill me this way? Look right at me, what do you see? Dying eyes burned into the sun. And I’m falling apart once again; all the people are turning away. And I’ve seen all I can and I don’t understand, why did you kill me this way? My good friend, in the rain, walking home from the War. It’s cold and I’m tired and the sun’s going down. Let’s stay here and we’ll drink a bit more. Raping waiting, killing everything. I’m tired and I want to go home. Time is cracking, we are choking. Lay down here to die. The War turned the world into Hell. The bombs, they all blackened the sky. You walked through all the ashes through the end days of time singing “someday we all must die”. Someday we all must die.
Track Name: Arizona
Don’t take me home, to the place, of my fears, so alone. Shed my skin and hang me high, let it go tonight. Now in the end you will find, all you loved was just a lie. Take my hand we will fly, kill ourselves tonight. I told the men that came to hang me, I am the one that they should kill. On a cloudy winters day. So I looked around across the mountains, singing to my broken ways. On a cold and bloody day. The wind it took me in it’s arms and flew across the great horizon, straight into the center of the Sun. I told the men that came to hang me, I am the one that they should kill. On a cloudy winters day. So I looked around across the mountains, singing to my broken ways. On a cold and bloody day. The wind it took me in it’s arms and flew across the great horizon, straight into the center of the Sun.
Track Name: Dead Days/SECT V
The dead days are here, and all my years are gone. I’ve waited for the crops to burn and I’ll never come back no more. There is a place I know, through pale and endless snow. You close your eyes and let out your time, though you know that you’re losing your mind. You know that I must leave, to drown in the dark blue sea. And every year is wasted here in my room, full of anger and fear.
Track Name: The Happiest Days Of My Life
I am walking to nowhere, to the hole where I’ll lay myself to die. Far away from the pain here, so far away from anything at all. Sometimes days feel much longer, the days just seem to get me down. Running alone outside the schoolyards, no one seems to care for me at all. Way down here on the edge of nothing, I am laughing at the dead. Come over, hang your heads together, we will all die here alone. Watching life in the mirror, I’m caught between realizing pain. The wind blows across in the winter, the snow and the cold oppressive days. Way down here on the edge of nothing, I am laughing at the dead. Come over, hang your heads together, we will all die here alone.
Track Name: The Significance Of Failure
I stood at the edge of a massive blue sea, looking down at the rocks and the sky above me. I killed everyone that I’ve hated for years. I lined them all up and I shot ‘em right here. One after one they all looked in my eyes, and I smiled and I laughed as they suffered and died. The child is curled in the corner and crying. Every smile, every frown, every laugh, every lie. As I step to the edge and I think of my life. All the pain and the sorrow, and anger of mine. The people who broke me when I was a child, and I’m killing the happiest days of my life.
Track Name: Crossroads
I’m walking the roads of Louisiana, the Devil is right by my side. My blood is falling to the ground, the crossroads are down the line. I’ve killed ten thousand people, and I’m guilty as I’ve ever been. The time is coming to lay my soul down. Black dogs the crows in the wind. Everything’s getting much darker, and I’m feeling it’s my time to die. And I lay on the road where I sold my lost soul. So tired of this burden of mine. Father wont you please forgive me, for all the things that I’ve done wrong. Yet I’ve carried this stone for thirty-five years, a lie that I’ve lived with too long. I can hear the cold wind blowing, so my time has finally come. The Devil leans over and I hear a sound, his voice as I’m lowered down.
Track Name: When The Thread Breaks
You hold my hands up to the sky, and chain my body to the ground. Pin my eyes wide open, the vultures crying sound. The cracks in my skin, the cracks in my mind. I’ll open my mouth, and spill my time. I die for the Sun. I’ll die for the Sun. I die for the Sun. I’ll die. The light begins to burn, I feel my skin falling off. You stand above me and smile, watching the life come out of me. Come out of me. Now I’m everything, and I live inside you. I’ll rip your heart out, leave you dead in this room.
Track Name: The Happiest Days Of My Life 2/SECT VI
Walk away from every single thing, to drown in the deep blue sea. Wash your face with blood of broken dreams, and laugh until we die. Though we find the time is always late, the days have turned to years. You’ll see the Sun when truth has turned to lies, you’ll laugh until you die. All our lives are broken rhymes we’ve wasted all our years. We’ve lost our way, the children play, on bones of our despair. Breaking down the endless prison walls, killing all I see. Standing isles of negativity, you’ll never realize. Cold is what my life turned out to be, I’ll walk to the deep blue sea. Wash my face with blood of broken dreams, I laugh until I die. All our lives are broken rhymes, we’ve wasted all our years. We’ve lost our way, the children play, on bones of our despair.
Track Name: The Happiest Days Of My Life 3/SECT VII
So glad there’s no one else around, it’s time to tear the curtains down. Been waiting for this moment all my life. For years I’ve grown tired of this, afraid of everything I’ve missed. The knives are hanging sadly on the wall. I’m killing you, I’m killing them. I’ll kill the ones that let me in. World of pain and constant tragedy. So long, I’ve had a happy time. I’ll miss the fun and miss the rides. I’m drowning in this endless deep blue sea.
Track Name: Everyone Eventually Dies
I’ve finally lost all my strength, walking down this endless road. There’s nothing here left for me now, no place that I can call home. Drowning in this poisoned sea, of failed life and my broken dreams. My will to live is fading, procession of my misery. Black cloud follows me where I go, and the weight of the world on my mind. I once was a child that stood in the fields. Now I’m old, broken and blind. The years have all faded away, the books have been read and it’s time. To end my life and close my eyes, to lay down and write the last line. I shut all the doors and the blinds. Light a candle and turn out the lights. I held a picture of my mom and dad, and smiled as I switched off my life.
Track Name: Across A Broken Sea (bonus track)
How many times before we died alone?
How many broken bitter days?
I took the pieces in my hands
And tried to leave before the rains
If there was just something that I could hide behind
Something to help me with this anger to subside
And though the madness grows far beneath my eyes
When all the killing slows, I'll cut the child inside
I wish there was something that I could hide behind
Another door to close
Another life broken in this time
Across a thousand miles of memories
Lies all the answers in my mind
We danced alone this endless shame
And watched the ocean fade away
Track Name: Los Angeles (bonus track)
My blood is dripping down into the drain
My God why are the people here insane?
Los Angeles is burning down
The wreckage of the american dream
Los Angeles is falling down
Drowning in the wicked sea
Your eyes are burning holes inside my mind
The highways are the veins of my decline
I'm laying in the desert in the Sun
I'm flying like an Angel from a gun
Your city is a broken withered lie
Each day draws closer to your dying time
We've lost our way to heaven, one by one
We'll die here on the ground under the Sun.
