Track Name: Tough Love
Lust reigns in the kingdom of the weak
Give in to desire, hear the lovers weep
Reach out for light but agony you'll find
Do as you please, tough love is gonna leave you blind
Track Name: In Harmony
They say every dog will have it's day one day
Well I'd wait for years if you had your say in this play
But I'm sorry babe, you always stood in my way
I cut the cord, I had to do this for me and

I've come so far and I've lost my way
Amongst promises you'd always break
How dare you think I'd forever stay
When in one place you'd remain
Forever

How far can one man go?
To suffer the path and be left with no
Name, face, place to call home
Swallowed by lust, I suffer alone

Bite back, take back control
Took everything and came back for more
Sing along to the songs of love lost
March on to the beat of love lost

So who am I to blame?
Who am I to mourn?
Took all that I owed
And now you've settled the score
Divided we fall and now we turn to dust
In harmony we howl the cries of love lost

In harmony we howl the cries of love lost
The hymns of the damned we sing forevermore
You gave it all that you had and now you pay the price
Left empty handed out the back door
Track Name: Hell-Bent (The Bottle pt. II)
Make up your mind, you better eat it
I don't need your help, I don't need it
Suffer the cycle all over again
Lose my mind all over again

Take another one, you'll feel better
Well doc, I ain't feelin' any better
Fed these demons with your false alarms
Gave them my hand and they took my fucking arm
So what is left now? What will I be?
A name on a label? A loose fantasy?
A shell of the man that you used to see?
Give me another one, I don't wanna be me.

But all I needed was some company
Shelter from the cold in two arms
To keep me safe from myself
Keep these demons at bay
Happiness bails when I call her name
Track Name: Let The Judas Rot
Whenever I get up you just let me down
I hope we never cross paths
Or see you face around here man
No good news
Dirt on your hands and I'll never understand
How you smash what is good and you spoil what is gold
Fingers graze and the weak succumb
But I see right through and I know your kind
Dirt cheap talk in a world of lies but I

I won't walk that line
In the land of rats I still set aside
And I'll always despise
The filth of greed in your eyes
I see through
What you hide holds no place in my mind

So step the fuck inside

Step inside
The crown is mine
The law is comin' your way
And you know it's time
Say your prayers
Wave goodbye
Head on the scaffold
It's rollin' time
Track Name: Coup De Grâce
Land so barren even the vultures weep
Open eyes but I'm still asleep
As I roam and rot amongst the lowest of the low
One last vice is the final blow
They say the bigger they are, the harder they fall
Living proof and I've seen it all
But the hand of regret can't break the hand of deceit
I roll the dice again with all odds against me

Pave the path to misery for me
Open eyes but I'm still half asleep
Dread the day when the truth comes set me free

So you can take it or you can leave it
I put myself in this mess and I can't fuckin' escape
World keeps fucking spinnin' and it's out to take me
And I know another lie might be enough to break me
But the hand of regret can't break the hand of deceit
I roll the dice again with all odds against me
I burn

I burn with every fucking word you never spoke
In the end on your own bleeding tongue you choke
Track Name: Case Closed
It's funny now, it's all laid to rest
I couldn't see myself without you
Now there's nothing left
And I know it's me, It's I who chose
I'm sorry that I left your mind void of rejoice
And now

Your words ring in the back of my mind
The hammer swings and now justice finds
It's way in the court of all the wrongs made mine
Case is closed, the verdict signed

"You let me go and you sucked me dry
Left with nothing, told me nothing but lies
I cut the cord, will never see you around
Fuck every thought of you
I'll put you deep in the ground"

So when you finally close that book
I hope you make amends and burn every page
Was never worth a single word you wrote
So forget my name
And forget my face

I'm gone
Track Name: Babylon
Evil lurks as the whole world burns,
They're up in towers, they await their turns
Call the shots, they pull every string
Better dance to the note of every song they sing
And you better know that when they bring it back
They'll take every penny that you ever had
Suck you dry and tie you down
Stripped of freedom
They hold the crown

Obey the law in the land of greed
Suffer if we bite the hand that feeds

They bought us up, sold us out
Faith no more, left in doubt
No hope left, just an empty hand
Better point the finger at your fellow man
And if you can't blame him
Another man will fall
To lift your burden
And drag their trawl
They'll line you up against the wall
Your time will come

History repeats
Common man stomped under tyrants' feet
Babylonia feeds
We're all cannon fodder for their golden fleet
Track Name: Shed The Skin
Release me, defeat is me
Rid me from the filth that I used to be
Shed my skin, I'm born again
Rise from the ashes onto new lands
Where the soil is rich and the air is clean
It's been so many years since I got to breathe
But these chains are mine and now I set me free
Rid me from the filth that I used to be
True to me

Been a noose to you
Dead weight, of no use to you
Been a noose to you
Need to be something new to you

Mama's boy grew a little older
Bad taste in my mouth
And a chip on my shoulder
No more damn reason to try and safe face
Lived every vice and every fucking mistake
So
Track Name: Under Your Spell
What is happening? How have you been?
You found your way back to me again
I wrote you off
Led you astray
You smell the scent of my fear from fucking miles away

Threw me into the dark of night
Now my eyes have adjusted to this lack of light
Way to go, just like that, pull me back again
Seduce me with your lies and all your false pretense
Of better days and clear blue skies
Meadows bloom and open eyes, wide
Where flowers grow and rivers flow
But still water's all I'll ever know

So what is happening? How have you been?
You found your way back to me again
I wrote you off
Led you astray
You smell the scent of my fear from fucking miles away
But

I'm so done with the guilt and shame
You've passed your judgement and I've staked my claim
And maybe one day I will feel no pain
But for now you stay in place

I fed you vulture 'til you fucking bloated
You picked the flesh off of me right to the fucking bone
Gave a hand, took my arm and now I finally see
Needed you more than you'll ever need me

But I've tread behind enemy lines before
Lost sanity and clear sight before
Set me free for the sake of me
Won't lay the blade at my feet

I'm so done with the guilt and shame
You've passed your judgement and I've staked my claim
And maybe one day I will feel no pain
But for now you stay in place
My oldest friend, no good to see you again
Leave me be and we'll both repent
Wash away the sins and just let me be
Under your spell but with clear sight I see

I set me free
