1. GATES OF HELL​

 

CAN YOU HEAR THEM? CAN YOU SEE?

THE SCREAMS FOR HELP? THE MISERY? 

THEY'RE BANGING ON THE GATES OF HELL, ENDLESSLY

I SEE CORRUPTION, I SEE FEAR

I SEE NO JUSTICE HERE

 

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO WAKE YOU UP?

MILLIONS OF LIVES JUST ISN’T ENOUGH

YOU FEEL THE PAIN BUT YOU LACK THE HEART

IT'S ABOUT TIME YOU WOKE UP

 

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO WAKE YOU UP?

MILLIONS OF LIVES JUST ISN'T ENOUGH

YOU FEEL THE PAIN BUT YOU LACK THE HEART

IT’S ABOUT TO TIME YOU WOKE UP

 

CAN YOU HEAR THEM? CAN YOU SEE?

THEY'RE BANGING ON THE GATES OF HELL, ENDLESSLY

I SEE CORRUPTION, I SEE FEAR

I SEE NO JUSTICE HERE

 

WHAT DOES IT TAKE YOU TO WAKE YOU UP?

 

YOU'RE JUST SO FUCKING GUILTY

YOU CAN'T FUCKING SEE IT

 

CAN YOU HEAR THEM? CAN YOU SEE? 

THEY’RE BANGING ON THE GATES OF HELL

BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG

BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG

THEY’RE BANGING ON THE GATES OF HELL

BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG

 

2. PURE FEAR

 

HAVE YOU SEEN THE FACE OF FEAR?

(THE) TRUE DEPTHS OF DESPAIR?

TASTED HELPLESSNESS?

FELT THE TRUE COLD OF THE ABYSS?

 

FELT THE WEIGHT OF THE CHAINS OF THE WORLD

WRAP AROUND YOUR BACK?

FELT THE DEVIL GRIP YOUR THROAT?

AND THE ANGELS BREATH ON YOUR NECK?

 

IT STARED STRAIGHT THROUGH YOU

TO THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SOUL

SMOTHERED YOU DOWN

TO THE LOWEST OF THE LOW

 

COLD SWEAT, DEEP BREATH

PURE FEAR

HATE, SHAME, REGRET

ANXIETY’S A DEMON YOU CAN’T FORGET

 

I’VE BEEN BROKEN

I’VE BEEN SHAMED

NOW I’M STRONG (BUT) I’LL BE BROKEN AGAIN 

I WILL FEEL TRUE PAIN

BUT I WILL BE KING AGAIN

 

IT STARED STRAIGHT THROUGH YOU

TO THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SOUL

SMOTHERED YOU DOWN

TO THE LOWEST OF THE LOW

LOW

TO THE LOWEST OF THE LOW

 

COLD SWEAT, DEEP BREATH

PURE FEAR

HATE, SHAME, REGRET

ANXIETY’S A DEMON YOU CAN’T FORGET

COLD SWEAT, DEEP BREATH

PURE FEAR

HATE, SHAME, REGRET

ANXIETY’S A DEMON YOU CAN’T FORGET

 

I WILL FEEL TRUE PAIN

I WILL BE

I WILL BE KING AGAIN

I WILL FEEL

I WILL FEEL TRUE PAIN

I WILL BE

I WILL BE KING AGAIN 

I WILL FEEL TRUE PAIN

I WILL BE KING AGAIN

 

 

3. BLOOM

THE CANDLE THAT BURNS TWICE AS BRIGHT 

ONLY BURNS FOR HALF AS LONG

 

AND THERE’S NOTHING INSIDE ME THAT MAKES ME WANT TO QUIT

THERE’S NOTHING THERE THAT DOESN’T THINK I’LL CONQUER IT

 

OH BUT THE VOICE SCREAMS

I’LL NEVER BE FINE

THE FLOWER BLOOMS

JUST TO WITHER AND DIE

 

THE NAIL THAT STICKS UP ALWAYS GETS 

SMASHED THE FUCK BACK DOWN

 

AND THERE’S NOTHING INSIDE ME THAT MAKES ME WANT TO QUIT

THERE’S NOTHING THERE THAT DOESN’T THINK I’LL CONQUER IT

 

OH THE CANDLE THAT BURNS ALWAYS GETS 

SMASHED THE FUCK BACK DOWN

 

THE FLOWER BLOOMS

JUST TO WITHER AND DIE

 

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL LIFE

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL LIE

LIE

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL LIE


 

4. A.P.M.D.

 

DID YOU SEE THE BUILDINGS BURN?

THEIR MONUMENTS TURN TO DUST?

DO YOU SEE THE FUTURE IN THE RUST?

 

I WANT TO WATCH IT FALL

LEAD THE PIGS TO THE SLAUGHTER

THEY CURSED US ALL

 

WE ARE DOOMED TO CHOKE ON THE ASHES

OF YESTERDAY'S EMPIRES AND THEIR ACTIONS

 

I WANT TO WATCH IT FALL

LEAD THE PIGS TO THE SLAUGHTER

THEY CURSED US ALL

 

CURSED

US

ALL

 

ALL MEN ARE PIGS

ALL PIGS MUST DIE

 

DID YOU SEE THE BUILDINGS BURN?

THEIR MONUMENTS TURN TO DUST?

DO YOU SEE THE FUTURE IN THE RUST?

 

I WANT TO WATCH IT FALL

LEAD THE PIGS TO THE SLAUGHTER

THEY CURSED US ALL

THEY CURSED US

 

ALL MEN ARE PIGS

ALL PIGS MUST DIE

 

ALL MEN ARE PIGS

ALL PIGS MUST DIE

 

I WANT TO WATCH IT FALL

BECAUSE THEY CURSED US ALL

I WANT TO WATCH IT FALL

BECAUSE THEY CURSED US ALL

 

ALL MEN ARE PIGS

ALL PIGS MUST DIE

ALL MEN ARE PIGS

ALL PIGS MUST DIE

5. NO JUSTICE

IF I COULD

THEN I WOULD

TURN BACK THE DAY

THE WORLD OPENED UP TO ME

 

I REFUSE

THE GIFTS

OF CLARITY

THE CURSE OF EMPATHY

 

OH THE SHAME AND THE GUILT

OH WHAT HAVE WE BUILT?

IT'S ROTTING FROM ITS CORE

IT'S THE RUST AND THE FADE

IT'S THE WAY IT WAS LAID

IT WAS NEVER BUILT TO LAST

 

SAVE YOUR BREATH

DON'T WANNA HEAR A BLIND MAN RECITING OLD MAN’S MADNESS

SAVE YOUR BREATH

SO LET ME BE FREE AND NOT PRIVY TO YOUR BLANDNESS

 

I AM MY OWN KING

 

NO SLAVES, NO MASTERS

NO GODS, NO PRISONERS

NO RULES, NO BORDER

NO!

 

DON'T WANNA HEAR A BLIND MAN RECITING OLD MAN’S MADNESS

SAVE YOUR BREATH

SO LET ME BE FREE AND NOT PRIVY TO YOUR BLANDNESS

 

I AM MY OWN KING

I AM MY OWN KING

 

NO SLAVES, NO MASTERS

NO GODS, NO PRISONERS

 

NO RULES, NO BORDERS

NO EXCUSES, NO DOUBTS

NO WAR, NO LIES

NO GODS 

IT'S JUST US 

 

WHERE'S THE JUSTICE?

IT'S JUST US

NO JUSTICE

IT'S JUST US
