Prelude 01:23
Ender 01:28
I used to come here to feel safe It's been taken from me My inheritance taken away and given to waste Replaced by an empty space and a fucking bitter taste Born here, but a foreign tongue tells me, I don't belong here, My family removed Washed out and washed up, On the outskirts I feel the biting cold from both sides Yet you wonder why (I'm so bitter) Hope fades away to never reappear Left at the city gates Like a leper
Backslider 00:56
You say that they’re going to hell, because what they believe is wrong Do what you will because you’re saved by grace Nothing really matters Except for the human race Maybe I’m wrong, but I had to choose I’m done with being guilt-ridden, fear driven, born to lose Surround me with your disappointment Treat me like a sheep who’s been led astray Tell me how I’ve let you down By this living life My own way
Peasant 01:52
I can’t pay these taxes, they’re more than I have to live Defeated by stress, it brings no rest Death weighing down upon my chest What will save my ass? What will save your ass?
Done 01:24
Down out of luck Not giving a fuck We're pushing closer to the edge and we all know it's a drop It's like we're already done And we've got nothing to lose It's like we're already gone A careless nation of sleeping fools Always tied by the ropes of the past I wonder how we've even made it this far Are we too late or were we doomed from start? We're pushing closer to the edge and we all know it's a drop It's you, it's me, it's all of us And still the spiral turns It doesn't matter what anyone says The damage is done We're already done It doesn't matter what anyone says We're already done
Dead Hand 01:37
In a world where whats wrong is right, We have lost all the will to love I reach out into the ether to climb out, But what's pulled back is a cold, dead hand All the world is ablaze With the flame of distrust This poison spreads all day, Through all I see, in every way Is it too late for me to change my ways? Is it too late for me? In a world where what's wrong is right, We have lost all the will to love I have lost all the feeling I have lost all the feeling
