Track Name: Intro
I put my foot down

Justifying your actions
In the name of the cross
You've stepped out of the garden
We are the saints of the dark
Track Name: Worth It
With every new tear
Shame fills your eyes
You wish your heart to stop beating
But don't realize

There's nothing to be ashamed of
There's nothing left to hide
You were only trying to rid
The darkness that's inside

I'm looming on the outside
As your light fades
If you don't look inside
Youre going to split your fucking veins

I stand before you as a friend and your way out
All you have to do is put the bottle down
Just tell me when you will finally learn
Cuz I've been here from the start and I've watched your world burn


Surrounded by vices I dance back and forth
Between dreams and reality
Battling this beating heart

Take a step back and see what you have done
Taking your own life
Is a battle that shouldn't be won

I stand before you as a friend and your way out
All you have to do is put the bottle down
Just tell me when you will finally learn
Cuz I've been here from the start and I've watched your world burn

You have always had two strikes against you
But you've got the strength
The strength of a tiger
And these cuts are your stripes
Count your stripes

I stand before you as a friend and your way out
All you have to do is put the bottle down
Just tell me when you will finally learn
Cuz I've been here from the start and I've watched your world burn

Every regret comes from a mistake you have made
It rests on my mind
So take my hand and leave the past behind

They may fade
But they won't ever disappear
You're worth every burnt fucking letter
And every night I shed a tear

So next time you want to paint with razors use my skin
I believed that the real me was trying to escape my body
and a razor was its only way out

Worth it

No matter who tells you
how worthless you are
Listen when I say you're better than what you think you are
Track Name: Countdown To Zero
Go back to hell

I stood before you
a quiet child who
feared waking you at night
and always hid from you

my mind struggles with how you can fucking breathe
when you cast your bloodied fists upon me
Look in the mirror
Fear your own eyes

You need someone to save you
Someone to lift you off the ground
Fearing the reaper that dwells in you
I need a hero, Countdown to zero

I could be the one to guide you
Fire burns within my eyes
I've become my own demise

This is your downfall, Bitch

We all know that it stays in the family ties
but I will not sit here and watch as your heart dies

Everyone tells me that I look just like you, now
Am I condemned to a life worth living
or just six feet under ground
I'm not running out of fight
I'm running out of life

You need someone to save you
Someone to lift you off the ground
Fearing the reaper that dwells in you
I need a hero, Countdown to zero

I could be the one to guide you
Fire burns within my eyes
I've become my own demise

I fall
But I'm still standing above you
You're mother fucking worthless

Look at your blood soaked hands
and every word you spit
I now know your love never meant shit

You need someone to save you
Someone to lift you off the ground
Fearing the reaper that dwells in you
I need a hero, Countdown to zero

I could be the one to guide you
Fire burns within my eyes
I've become my own demise

I fall
But I'm not fucking worthless
I've found a new father
So go back to hell
Track Name: 16 : The Noose & The Hangman
Drop the lever
Bring on the black mask
No! No!
Don't let me go to the Hangman

Faceless
We're the nameless
We're nothing in your eyes
The difference between us
Is that these words made
Someone change their mind

There was a time I called you my bride
You knew how this would end when you stabbed your love to death
And I saw my life flash before my eyes
You knew when you pulled the trigger
It would take her last breath

These names that we're born with follow us to the grave
Locked in this concrete cell I'm
Nothing but an empty name

Blood took over my mind
Somehow I made it out alive
The forrest as my escape
The moon my only light

There was a time I called you my bride
You knew how this would end when you stabbed your love to death
And I saw my life flash before my eyes
You knew when you pulled the trigger
It would take her last breath

(I didn't do anything
I promise
I didn't do it
It was all in my head
God help me)

You are the pied piper who can make the rats follow suit
When it comes time to pay
My life will will hang in front of you

(You will never be forgiven)

I'm filled with so much hate and I want to set the world on fire.
No! No!
Don't let them take me to the gallows

There was a time I called you my bride
You knew how this would end when you stabbed your love to death
And I saw my life flash before my eyes
You knew when you pulled the trigger
It would take her last breath

I've been tried
15 to life
You turned your back and sold me out
And now I'm being hung out to dry
If I begin to swings
Push me back to center
Let my body fall
Maybe my God can't save us all
At eight sharp, the bell tolls
That's the sound of a dead man walking
Track Name: Lionheart
Unbroken chains that once bound me
Kept me from breathing
Told me I could never leave
Now I know who I was meant to be

I looked back when I heard your voice
Calling for me to come back home

I may be blind
But you should know I was taught by
The voice of a lion

Angels are surrounding me
Came to earth and they unbound me
Opened the gates that's where
They found me
Knelt upon the ground

How can I return to my birth place
When I am known only as a coward
Shunned by those who speak my name
I will show you all...

I may be blind
But you should know I was taught by
The voice of a lion

Breathe deep
Sh

You're not a martyr

You closed the doors of his home
Thinking that it's what he wants
I have to be hung upside down
To show that I'm not good enough

I may be blind
But you should know I was taught by
The voice of a lion

I will tear your putrid throat
From your god forsaken neck
And I will rip out your heart
And that will be all she wrote

There will be no forgiveness
For the wretched things you've done
I will watch you suffer
Until kingdom come
