Reckoning Day
I like the way that I make you itch And all the reasons I give you to bitch And how I make you wanna scream in pain And feel your life is just a losing game I like the way that you let me in The way you look when the walls cave in I like the way that your stomach knots And how you cry for it all to stop I like the way that you fool yourself And make believe there's nobody else I like the way that you stand in line And beg salvation from the empty skies Don't want no revenge Ain't no pay back time It ain't called getting even Here comes the reconing day I like the things that you try to fake And your face when I see you break And that you say you will pray for me You realize you are prey for me I like the way you stay on attack No matter what, I keep coming back And how you try to hold me down But you end up driven to the ground Train Of Consequences
I'm doing you a favor As I'm taking all your money I guess I should feel sorry But I don't even trust me There's bad news creeping up And you feel a sudden chill How do you do? My name is Trouble I'm coming in for the kill... And you know I will Set the ball a-rollin I'll be clicking off the miles On the train of consequences My boxcar life o' style My thinking is derailed I'm tied up to the tracks The train of consequences There ain't no turning back No horse ever ran as fast As the money that you bet I'm blowing on my cards And play them to my chest Life's fabric is corrupt Shot through with corroded thread As for me I hocked my brains Packed my bags and headed west Addicted To Chaos
Only yesterday they told me you were gone All these normal people will I find another one? Monkey on ny back, aching in my bones I forgot you said "One day you'll walk alone" I said I need you, does that make me wrong? Am I a weak man, are you feeling strong? My heart was blackened, it's bloody red A hole in my heart, a hole in my head? Who will help me up? Where's the helping hand? Will you turn on me? Is this my final stand? In a dream I connot see Tangled abstract fallacy Random turmoil builds in me I'm addicted to chaos Light shined on my path, Turn bad days into good Turn breakdowns into blocks, I smashed 'em Cause I could My brain was labored, my head would spin Don't let me down, don't give up, don't give in The rain comes down, cold wind blows The plans we made are back up on the road Turn up my collar, welcome the unknown Remember that you said "One day you'll walk alone" A Tout Le Monde
Don't remember where I was I realized life was a game The more seriously I took things The harder the rules became I had no idea what it'd cost My life passed before my eyes I found out how little I accomplished All my plans denied So as you read this know my friends I'd love to stay with you all Please smile when you think of me My body's gone that's all A tout le monde (To all the world) A tous mes amis (To all my friends) Je vous aime (I love you) Je dois partir (I have to leave) These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free If my heart was still alive I know it would surely break And my memories left with you There's nothing more to say Moving on is a simple thing What it leaves behind is hard You know the sleeping feel no more pain And the living are scarred Elysian Fields
Music by Mustaine Uneasy feeling, burning out my eyes I hope the end is less painful than my life I stand on trial before the gods On judgement day A blink of an eye between The cradle and the grave One last look at visions of flesh The last best hope of man on Earth Pontius Pilate still washing his hands The world don't want to be saved Only left alone Elysian Fields... We are storming the heavens We raise the swords and shields We ascend to our destiny To the Elysian Fields Soaring to the sun With blood upon their wings Superstitious dust left twisting in the wind Man still has one belief, One decree that stands alone The laying down of arms Is like cancer to their bones The Killing Road
Again we stalk the stage At mach speed we engage Feeding people's rage The big cat's left it's cage Back in the bus again To catch another plane This behavior's quite insane But we do it for the fame, yeah I lost my mind, I lost all my money I lost my life to the killing road The road will never end It always starts again Another show's around the bend Another long lost friend Faceless as the snow There's nothing special about the road It's just another haul It's just too damn long that's all, yeah Blood Of Heroes
Walking stiff let me tell ya Better left for dead And now we are on a mission Well it's full speed ahead My legion's when we do the crime Let's get one thing straight To get there early is on time And showing up on time is late Ladies and gents, we're still alive By the skin of our teeth, now it's killing time Angel in our pocket, devil by our side We ain't going nowhere cuz' heroes never die Still alive Blood of heroes Never die They never die We've been run down every hill Chased up all the dead end streets But if you try to cut us out You'll get a kick in the teeth Ladies and gents we're still alive By the skin of our teeth, now it's killing time Fasten up your head belts, Time to ride the skies It's time to be immortal, 'cuz heroes never die Family Tree
Forgotten things remembered The tigers eat their young The body stayed but inside the head The mind was on the run A conspiracy of silence The only way out of pain Is turn around, run through it man Too wet to come in from the rain, Tell them... I know they were doing it to you But don't try doing it to me Let me show you, how I love you It's our secret, you and me But keep it in the family tree The secret of the family tree When you hear them saying "trust me" Don't wait to see what's next Thrown to the wolves Forever trusting Raised in a form of living hell Sing a one note song of rage Live and die within your heart So beware in the shadows Your family tree waits in the dark I say... Youthanasia
Who'd believe with the way things are here We'd be going anywhere telling people How to live? Who'd believe we'd spend more Shippin' drugs and guns Than to educate our sons? Sorry but That's what they did I can't help but think, Someone's foresaken you and me Luck deserted me and the truth Beat out my brains Men rise on stepping stones of their Selves to higher things I've stepped over lots of bodies on my way Thanks for the information don't need no More anything We are the damned of all the world With saddness in our hearts The wounded of the wars We've been hung out to dry You didn't want us anyway And now we're making up our minds You tell us how to run our lives We run for youthanasia I Thought I Knew It All
Somewhere there's a reason Why things go like they do Somewhere there's a reason Why somethings just fall through We don't always see them For what they really are But I know there's a reason, Just can't see it from this far Maybe I don't like it, but I have no choice I know that somewhere, someone hears my voice I thought I knew it all I thought I had it made How could it end this way? I thought I knew Somewhere there's a reason Why things don't go my way Somewhere there's a reason That I cannot explain Just like the change of season, Just may not be my turn But I know there's a reason, The lesson's mine to learn Black Curtains
Hey... look around you Everything's helter-skelter Listen up... I warn you Run for cover, run Bang... it happened Time's up, armageddon Fire... meltdown The sky is crumbling in Black curtains... never ending Escape... you're joking Can't find no place to run Hair... is burning My flesh is bubbling up Blood... is boiling Taste copper on my tongue Fate... is coming Welcome it with a smile Black curtains... never ending, fall Am I dreaming? My heart pounds my chest Held for ransom in a spider's web Suffocating, no one hears my calls Never ending, till the black curtain falls Snakes... surround me Offering their death kiss to me Down... I'm drowning How long, I hold my breath Dogs, are chasing My legs are paralyzed Pray... don't find me My life is fading fast Victory
Now, one day I started telling everyone That "Killing Is My Business..." And I was hung like a martyr For "Looking Down the Cross" My "Skull Beneath The Skin" Prophisied "Last Rites/Loved To Death" my friends Then I started seeing "Bad Omens" in my head "Good Mourning/Black friday" will I "Wake up Dead"? If I "Aint Superstitious" then this won't mean a thing But some crazy shit has happened since "The Conjuring" Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins A knife right through my heart, I am a Victory Came "Anarchy" to "Set The World Afire" Pain of "Hook In Mouth", "In My Darkest Hour" Corruption of the world "Peace Sells...But Nobody's Buying" Ignorant religion "Holy Wars" and the dying, yea "Tornado" nearly got me By the "Skin of My Teeth" "This Was My Life","Forclosure of My Dreams" May the past "Rust in Peace" in "Hangar 18" And "Countdown to Extinction" Just be a bad dream "Lucretia" said...
