roll the die / paradise

snake eyes / lottery

choice finding voice / what cuts through noise?


standing in the middle / mystery / eyes on the prize

give me a good reason why the bad guy shouldn’t die

I've been sharpening this blade for the last few months

sleighed all my demons now the caskets shut

first come, first served / who’s the last to run?

when a savior appears in every mirror

in a split second, it’s clear

there’s nobody else here to hold us responsible

for the cards that were dealt, on top a make believe pot of gold

put some heart in it, or blame the architect

jump in the dark abyss / we all played a part in it

running in the darkest hour trying to press record

stay light on the feet and swing the heaviest sword

left ‘em dead as a door knob when we opened the door

either the guests went deaf or I’ve said it before, it’s like…

3x what you’re looking for is really looking for you

who is the criminal and what is the crime?

why do you run every time that we’re looking for you?

2x set fire to the confessional

wild on both sides / wild on both sides

when I entered the freshest exit wound all was left

was a remembrance of some residue sculpted in flesh

I got the motive of a vandal and the heart of a child

bending light between will, fresh kill and a smile

fresh kill on the hillside

3x easier to follow

fresh kill on the hillside

easier to follow

lead by tracks / heart thats been shot by an arrow

trying to mend the broken circle while I'm standing in a square

choking / smoking up a storm thinking I could clear the air

clothing on a newborn innocence, thats as bear

as the truth flying naked / fair game unless your scared of heights.

3x scared of heights

food chain left ‘em paralyzed

somethings guiding me to the side of a cliff

it tells me I should let it go while it just tightens its grip

must be a 3x parasite

food chain left ‘em paralyzed

as above as below this is as high as it gets

still trying to figure out about which side I exist

pull back the veil and see the child behind the fangs you flash

same act / different cast

same play / different masks

same train / twisting tracks

destination final

we’re headed toward the cliff, so it’s stress or enjoy the ride home

and you look at me like I’m a rabid dog in the park

or the one who came to save you from one

3x guess we make a perfect match

pull these pins from out of my mind

scrape away the twist prick straighten my spine

make it, make it go away/ dull aches on both sides

maybe this is how you speak when you’re dead on all sides

4x set fire to the confessional

wild on both sides / wild on both sides
