LYRICS

CHAOS (4:14)

power, money, holy roads
information overload
leave me in the bitter cold to die

killing time has just begun
clinging to a holy gun
leave me in the blazing sun to die

you get nothing for nothing
except what you steal
I’ve got a cut in my soul
that just won’t heal

inject myself with cyanide
break on through to the other side
gimme one more try
one last lie, goodbye

chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
you go down
chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
chaos
chaos

breaking every promise made
redefine a better way
asphyxiating while I pray, I’m dead

destroy, offend and terrorise
with noting left to vandalise
you can’t make me compromise, I’m dead

you get nothing for nothing
except what you steal
I’ve got a cut in my soul
that just won’t heal

inject myself with cyanide
break on through to the other side
gimme one more try
one last lie, goodbye

chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
you go down
chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
chaos
chaos

chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
you go down
chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
chaos
chaos

so if you think you’re in control
its dragging you further down the hole
right when you thought it all would end
all of the pain is back again

every attempt to make it stop
is taking you right back to the top
nothing you do can change it now
not that it matters anyhow

chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
you go down
chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
chaos
chaos

chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
you go down
chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
chaos
chaos

chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
you go down
chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
chaos
chaos

chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
you go down
chaos
you got a one way ticket to chaos
chaos
chaos

REMEMBER (4:58)

doesn’t matter if this world stop turning
I don’t think I’d even care
and if God decides to drop the curtain
it won’t matter much to me

granted clemency
I loose myself in apathy
perverse affinity
a self induced amnesia

no discrepancy
my ignorance will set me free
erase my memory
I suffocate in hate

lost
It slowly went away
was gone without a trace
I’m tired and I can’t remember

lost
I thought it came to stay
and put me in my place
I’m tired and I won’t remember

like the night embrace the strange and lonely
bring me shelter in the dark
it don’t matter if the sun stop shining
it might save me from what’s real
save me from what’s real
save me from what’s real

lost
It slowly went away
was gone without a trace
I’m tired and I can’t remember

lost
I thought it came to stay
and put me in my place
I’m tired and I won’t remember

granted clemency
I loose myself in apathy
perverse affinity
a self induced amnesia

no discrepancy
my ignorance will set me free
erase my memory
I suffocate in hate

lost
It slowly went away
was gone without a trace
I’m tired and I can’t remember

lost
I thought it came to stay
and put me in my place
I’m tired and I won’t remember

lost
It slowly went away
was gone without a trace
I’m tired and I can’t remember

lost
I thought it came to stay
and put me in my place
I’m tired and I won’t remember

NEVERLAND (4:38)

say hello to nevermore
there’s no justice left worth fighting for
drown your faith in disbelief
base your morals on deceit and greed

say goodbye to all you know
hold your breath and let your conscience go
put your faith in Jesus cash
close your eyes and let the system crash

in a crown of razor wire (kiss me now)

if I loose my faith it would be too late
right back to neverland
it would drag me down, suck me underground
right back to neverland

sell me hope in little pills
the fastest way to break the human will
a barefoot walk through broken glass
maybe something I can feel at last

in a crown of razor wire (kiss me now)

if I loose my faith it would be too late
right back to neverland
it would drag me down, suck me underground
right back to neverland

you don’t understand
I’m down the hole again
never enough
its never enough

you can’t comprehend
I’m back on the cross again
never enough
its never enough

if I loose my faith it would be too late
right back to neverland
it would drag me down, suck me underground
right back to neverland

you don’t understand
you don’t understand

if I loose my faith it would be too late
it would drag me down, suck me underground

right back to neverland
right back to neverland

you don’t understand
you don’t understand

VOID (4:17)

it’s dark and I’m lonely
so cold, so alone

so much that I know now
I should have known then
but what does it matter
I won’t try again

all I remember
I wish I’d forget
never say never
and that’s what you get

I tried to stall and took the fall
wouldn’t make the call
now I’ve got nothing left at all

I thought I’d win but I gave in
I lost again
now I’ve got nothing left at all

nothing’s the matter
it won’t happen here
you’d think you’d know better
blind to the fear

I’ve lost my religion
lost all I believe in
my memory’s in shackles
I’m down on my knees

it’s dark and I’m lonely
so cold, so alone

I tried to stall and took the fall
wouldn’t make the call
now I’ve got nothing left at all

I thought I’d win but I gave in
I lost again
now I’ve got nothing left at all

I tried to stall and took the fall
wouldn’t make the call
now I’ve got nothing left at all

I thought I’d win but I gave in
I lost again
now I’ve got nothing left at all

DUST TO DUST (3:54)

don’t ask me
I don’t know
I don’t care
I never did

It don’t matter
you can’t change it
you can’t fight it
its guaranteed

dust to dust
dust to dust
say goodbye now ‘cuz you’ll be gone forever
dust to dust
dust to dust
say goodbye now ‘case you wont be coming (dust to dust) back
dust to dust

just a moment
lost in time
like a tear
in the rain

no prophecies, no theories
no accident, no coincident
the future past will come at last
no alibi, its time to die

dust to dust
dust to dust

dust to dust
dust to dust
say goodbye now ‘cuz you’ll be gone forever
dust to dust
dust to dust
say goodbye now ‘case you wont be coming…

dust to dust
dust to dust
say goodbye now ‘cuz you’ll be gone forever
dust to dust
dust to dust
say goodbye now ‘case you wont be coming back

dust to dust
dust to dust
dust to dust
dust to dust

dust to dust
dust to dust
dust to dust
dust to dust

ANYTHING (4:07)

I go down on my knees
I do everything I can to please
I give in, I obey
I comply with every word you say

I give up all control
existing for you’re beck and call
nothing left to defend
I surrender everything I am

I’ll do anything, anything you want
I’ll do anything
I’ll do anything, anything at all
I’ll do anything

make me plead, make me beg
punish me across your leg
I’m the slut, I’m the slave
make me promise that I will behave

tie me down, fill me up
you decide when I’ve had enough
I’m the bitch, I’m the whore
you give me all you got but I still want more

I’ll do anything, anything you want
I’ll do anything
I’ll do anything, anything at all
I’ll do anything

I’ll do anything, anything you want
I’ll do anything
I’ll do anything, anything at all
anything at all

suffer and be used
after all I’ve done for you
submission

commit to the abuse
after all I still love you (I still love you)
submission
submission
submission

I’ll do anything, anything you want
I’ll do anything
I’ll do anything, anything at all
I’ll do anything

I’ll do anything, anything you want
I’ll do anything
I’ll do anything, anything at all
anything at all

I’ll do anything, anything you want
I’ll do anything
I’ll do anything, anything at all
I’ll do anything

I’ll do anything, anything you want
I’ll do anything
I’ll do anything, anything at all
anything at all

I’ll do anything
I’ll do anything
I’ll do anything, anything you want
anything at all

HAIL MARY (5:08)

you left me stranded here abandoned and alone
with silly memories of things I’ve never known
so when the mystery is starting to grow old
another dream goes by like ashes out of gold

hail Mary, hail Mary
hail Mary won’t you take my hand
Hail Mary
forgive me Father for I do not understand

just like the brightest light will fade away to black
there comes a time when there’s no reason to look back
I gave you everything, I gave you all I had
and when it all comes down I know I won’t be sad

hail Mary, hail Mary
hail Mary won’t you take my hand
Hail Mary
forgive me Father for I do not understand

hail Mary, hail Mary
hail Mary won’t you take my hand
Hail Mary
forgive me Father for I do not understand

hail Mary, hail Mary
hail Mary won’t you take my hand
Hail Mary
forgive me Father for I do not understand

hail Mary, hail Mary
hail Mary won’t you take my hand
Hail Mary
forgive me Father for I do not understand

forgive me Father for I do not understand

DEVIL INSIDE (4:19)

I’ve got a habit, I’ve got a vice
I’ve got a problem with advice
I’ve got a hunger, I’ve got a lust
an alter ego I can’t trust

I don’t even wanna know how much further I can go

devil inside
got no religion
devil inside
ain’t got no pride
devil inside
enjoy addiction
don’t need no alibi

devil inside
get tired of waiting
devil inside
just wanna ride
devil inside
make the decision
never question why

ran out of money
ran out of luck
I hit rock bottom
I got fucked

I put the demon
under my skin
sweet armageddon
came crashing in

I don’t even wanna know how much further I can go

devil inside
got no religion
devil inside
ain’t got no pride
devil inside
enjoy addiction
don’t need no alibi

devil inside
get tired of waiting
devil inside
just wanna ride
devil inside
make the decision
never question why

devil inside
enjoy addiction
need no alibi
devil inside
make the decision
never question why

devil inside
enjoy addiction
need no alibi
devil inside
make the decision
never question why

this is killing me
this is killing me
this is killing me
this is killing me

this is killing me
this is killing me
this is killing me
this is killing me

devil inside
got no religion
devil inside
ain’t got no pride
devil inside
enjoy addiction
don’t need no alibi

devil inside
get tired of waiting
devil inside
just wanna ride
devil inside
make the decision
never question why

(devil inside)
deep inside of me
filling me with agony
(devil inside)
slowly killing me
I look but I don’t wanna see

(devil inside)
deep inside of me
filling me with agony
(devil inside)
slowly killing me
I look but I don’t wanna see

SHUT UP (3:15)

hell bent, outta hand

shut up
you’re talkin’ to a wall
shut up
I’ve heard it all before

ALL DIES

all I can hear is my bloodflow
why I’m still here i really don’t know
the road to hell is paved with good intentions
but nothing here can come to my salvation

in the dark there’s an answer
fade to black but now remember
if I should fall from grace with god

it wouldn’t mean a fuck at all
I travel down that road before

all dies

I never thought things get better
I never thought it would matter
if you could shut your mouth enough to listen
then maybe you could find out what you’re missing

in the dark there’s an answer
fade to black but now remember
if I should fall from grace with god
it wouldn’t mean a fuck at all
I travel down that road before

all dies

if you could see what I have seen
stripped down to an animal
if you could feel what I have felt
living here is terminal

if you could see what I have seen
stripped down to an animal
if you could feel what I have felt
living here is terminal

in the dark there’s an answer
fade to black but now remember
if I should fall from grace with god
it wouldn’t mean a fuck at all
I travel down that road before

all dies
all dies
all dies
all dies
all…
