Track Name: Reprisal
Her name
In blood was written on the walls
Forever in their eyes as the one to fall
As the one who failed
Her body
Disgraced by his touch
The aroma
She can't excuse herself any more from this
And it's about time she got what she deserved
Her revenge

It's time she got her revenge
And now this gruesome scene
It seems to be justified
By all of the pain that he caused
By everything he's done
By her hands he fell
His head in his hands and a bullet in his chest

Soon to be
Soon to fall victim to his own brutal ways
He got what he deserved

His blood is satisfaction
But now what's her direction
This is no mere conviction
An act of desperation

It's time she got her revenge
And now this gruesome scene
It seems to be justified
By all of the pain that he caused
By everything he's done
By her hands he fell
His head in his hands and a bullet in his chest
She grips the pistol tight
"I won't let go"
It's time she got her revenge
And now this gruesome scene
It seems to be justified
By all of the pain that he caused
By everything he's done

By her hands he fell
She killed him with a smile
Track Name: Broken Hands
Hear these words
I hope that they hurt
Fill my lungs
With fire and coal
I couldn't handle you before
I'm sticking to my guns now

When you hear these words
I hope that they hurt

Before you get under my skin again
Before you break me down
I will stop you before you start and I will push on

I tend to think about the times I laid awake in my bed
The things I broke and the hearts I hurt
All because of you
I hate how much I think but it's all I can do
The things I broke and the hearts I hurt will never be the same
Track Name: Lion's Den
It takes nothing short of a fool to play games in the devils house
Now here we are standing adjacent to flame
Come with me

This was the night
When everything began to change
Stuck in a war
A blood stained battle field
Keeping the memories
Tucked away for now
Until it's time
Time to hunt

Exhausted and sore
Cut deep and clean
Keep the thoughts
Tucked deep inside
Now it's time
It's time to prey

No lion loses sleep over opinions of sheep
Let these colors run truth over face

This is my kingdom and my head is the only one this crown will dress
I'm wandering around and I can't be found
Until I'm found at peace with myself

From structure to run we'll tear it down
by the sins I've engraved, I'm binding my time of ignorance
spiraling down, I've failed you endlessly
Armed with weapons made of words
And bullets made of teeth

This is my kingdom and my head is the only one this crown will dress
I'm wandering around and I can't be found
Until I'm found at peace with myself
This is my kingdom and I let the light shine where I see fit
I'm wandering around and I can't be found
Because I refuse

Show you know how to fly and come fly with me
Track Name: Black
I used to think I'd grow up to be some one worth something
Now I think I'll grow old all alone

Stay true to yourself
Stay true to who you are
Be kind to your brothers
We've all been through hell

I used to think I'd grow up to be some one worth something
Now I think I'll grow old all alone

We've all been down the same roads
I'd be a fool to say I'm okay
I'd be a fool to say I'm okay

Some day you'll be something
Some day you'll be someone
Something good

Too many men think that in order to live in peace you must win a war
What war?

I used to think I'd grow up to be some one worth something
Now I think I'll grow old all alone

This won't be the end of me
I promise I won't falter
I will not fail

Pull me out
Get me out of this storm
Track Name: Island
I am in rare form and I see all that stands below me
As I burst through the sky and ignite the fuel in my veins
I am in rare form and my eyes are colored with blood
All I see is red and this aura is melting me to my bones

I'm really not as happy as I make it out to be
I feel no one could ever understand
All I want is something to call my own
Or a place to call my home
I'm really not as happy as I make it out to be
But my god I try

I can not believe this
This is what it's come to be
I will not be empty
This is what I've come to be

But when the world erupts and I come face to face with fear
I will stand firm in my convictions even if I am alone
My own body is my vessel, I will prevail on my own

I'm really not as happy as I make it out to be
I feel no one could ever understand
All I want is a bit of comfort
Or somewhere to call my home
I'm really not as happy as I make it out to be
But my god I try
Track Name: Vanquished
Always accepting the answers but never admitting the truth
We have the kindness of kings while you spread deceit
We have the will to survive and to eat the weak

We are the leaders of the strong
We are the ones who will tear down the walls
We will be here through the storm
Never broken, never surrendering

I have what I need, it's behind me
My friends and family
Through thick and thin
The one who mean the most
Never gave up

I am sick and tired of all the lies that you said
All the negativity
You're all the same and now I'm gone and you're to blame

Don't tell me about suffering
This vendetta's written on broken hearts and broken strings
I'm still searching for peace
One day I'm praying for this lonely art
My soul to take

This road is haunting me
The pressure will not cease
What I'm fighting for, the unending war
This road is crushing me slowly
Set me free

I've never felt more alone than when I'm not alone
Faces are starting to blend
This is all your fault
I hope you hurt like me
I hope you see the hurt in me
I wanted to bring you to your knees
i want to be there with hate in my fist
I'll put you in your grave
A grave as deep as the one I've dug for myself
Shallow enough for all to see
So I know that I can be
This is all your fault
I've never felt so alone except when I'm not alone
i have no home
and I don't know where to go
