Track Name: Old Man
Your old man was right
When he said you were just a kid
You're impractical, You're not superior
A waste of space, That's what you is

You let him push you down

That old man was right
Nobody knows your name
There's no one to take you home
You're running alone now
That old man was right

You let him push you down
Where the fuck are you now?

Where the fuck are you?

Where are you now old man?
Where are you now?

Where are you now old man?
Pushed down by the devil
Cross in your hand

You let him push you down
Track Name: Hell Wants You Back
Take down your brothers
And take down yourself
Watch where you're stepping
They're watching from hell

Who's to say what sin is
Hell knows Satan forgives

Fuck all your problems
That you were all born with
Let's put this hook
Where your hand should have been

Who's to say what sin is
Hell knows Satan forgives

Evil and cryptic your eyes show your sins
Sins that you swore that you won't do again

Sin is a pretty girl
She knows your name

Swallow your family
Swallow your sins
Don't be a stranger
Hell wants you back again

She knows your name

Swallow your family
Swallow your sins
Don't be a stranger
Hell wants you back again
Track Name: Burnin' Hell
All your life you've lacked the good things
Always been a social dog
Your mind and soul they beat you
Your faith it proves you wrong

Now you've been proven guilty
It's time to face the cause
Your mind it lacks the good things
Stuck behind prison walls

Goin' to hell to burn it down

Goin' straight to hell, yeah

Now that you've seen the problem
Get down on your hands and knees
Now that you know the answer
It's time to burn the beast

The devil that's inside you
The one who calls your name
You're giving him the answer
You're the one who lit the flame

Goin' to hell to burn it down

Goin' straight to hell to burn it down
Track Name: Black Ocean
Sailing the open sea
Drowned souls don't bother me
The ocean wreaks its havoc

Black storm is here again
These sails cut through the wind
The ocean reeks of havoc

Taller ships in taller waters
Mother nature, the sea is father
Hold your breath as you breathe him

Waves crash into hollow sun
Your drowning has begun
Hold your breath as you breathe in

Fighting the sea
Crash in the waves
Hold your breath now, it'll be your last

Fighting the sea
Drown in the waves
Hold your breath now it'll be your last

This ocean's black

Swallowed by the open sea
Drowned souls don't bother me
You swim, it wreaks its havoc

Black ocean stays afloat
While it sinks your battered boat
Lungs fill as you breathe in
Track Name: Death Blues
You run, but it will catch you
You hide, but it finds you
You beg, but it hunts you

You scream but it snuffs you
You pull, but it grabs you
You cry, but it needs you

You got the death blues

You fight, but it beats you
You pray, but it damns you
You plead, but it wants you

You sneak, but it sees you
You bite, but it eats you
You live, but it killed you

You got the death blues

I play the death blues

I got the death blues
Track Name: Burial Ground
Take what your body gives to you
And shove it down a hole
Take what your soul has done for you
Getting drained now takes its toll
You kill yourself until you're done
You're left without a home
Bring it to a burial ground
And bury your tortured soul

You put yourself down in the ground
You put your soul down in the ground
Bury yourself

Pile on the dirt, block out the sun
You're lying in a ditch, you're done
Come back to life on a dark cold night
It's time to have some fun
Hand out of the ground, your soul stays down
You'll eat this fucking town
Rise from the dead, worms in your head
You ate the flesh, your soul's been fed

You put yourself down in the ground
You put your soul down in the ground
Bury yourself
Track Name: My Love Is A Gun
I'm on my knees
I'm torn between
Begging for help
It's gun or girl, I kill myself

A struggle every day
Have your heart torn this way
Caught in between two loves
It's gun or girl, gonna fuck shit up

With gun or girl, gonna fuck shit up

How do I change my ways
In love, but with two names
It's gun or girl I fall
It's gun or girl, can't have 'em all

I need a release
I need an escape
You better run
My love is a gun

I'm on my knees
Begging for help
I'm torn between
Feel like the devil himself

My love is a gun
Track Name: Eli
He's been walking for thirty years
After the big flash
And headed out west
With a knife in his hand
This man is marching on

He carried a book
Protect it with his life
Hijackers everywhere
Led by his faith, not his sight
Get to the ocean
Get on the boat
While another man comes to find
This book is for the blind

Led by faith
To the water
Led by faith
Carried out this task
For mankind
For Eli's faith was blind
Track Name: Desert Alley
Woke up like alley scum
Rode out to the desert sun

Brought down those desert men
We fought like alley men

Cold
And empty
Inside, our lies

Woke up like alley scum
Rode out to the desert sun
Brought down those desert men
We fought like alley men

We took this desert land
We took it man by man
Brought down the sun
Firing our guns
Brought down the sun
We won

Dig up the ground
Get the dead to rally
We spread our shit around
In desert alley

Hollow
Gypsies
Ride on your back

Woke up like alley scum
Rode out to the desert sun
Brought down those desert men
We fought like alley men

We took this desert land
We took it man by man
Brought down the sun
Firing our guns
Brought down the sun
We won

Dig up the ground
Get the dead to rally
We spread our shit around
In desert alley
Track Name: Wicked Thoughts
I always think the worst thoughts
Can't get 'em out of my head
I turn into the victim
I turn to the fear of death

Always worst case scenario
Always a chance of feeling low
It's time to set my mind straight
These wicked thoughts, they gotta go

Too much focus on the cause
No sign of avoiding the symptoms
I wish my mind was at peace
I wish, I pray to God

I pray to God
My wicked thoughts
They leave my mind

No thought can bring me down
My mind and heart, they beat as one
Wicked thoughts, gotta get 'em out
It's time to turn this shit around

Oh my sick, twisted, wicked thoughts

My wicked thoughts
