If these are the last days of my life; you wanted to cut me, I held the knife, Ill summon your memory with the fear inside my mind still turning. Caged inside Please wake me from this dream Caged inside Just one more disaster, I’m feeling worse; at war with existence, the final curse, I’ve run and I’ve wasted all my chances that you’ll see right through me. Caged Inside I’m more than what I seem Caged inside You'll never see me again the tear that’s under my skin, please help me make a stand, where did we go wrong? It’s sad it had to end, these feelings that I hold, my faith is true again, I know I'm not alone. For every time that I let you down A sliver of me is put underground ill stop pretending If I could go back then all that would change All of the lies no one to blame just end it, end it Forget all the bad and think of the cost A moment of life a moment of loss, just tear it out, tear it out Caged Inside Please wake me from this dream Caged Inside You'll never see me again, the tear that’s under my skin, please help me make a stand, where did we go wrong? It’s sad it had to end, these feelings that I hold my faith is true again, I know I'm not alone

Reckless 03:17
I’ve thread the needle to the vain, like gasoline, I'm burning I’ll take the venom, I’ll take the pain; I'm fighting all my demons. I’m reckless; running through your loaded mind I’m infectious, and you know I’m ready to burn. My life's a candle, I watch it burn, another day of drowning? I'll crush your dreams, like shattered glass, can't stop my wheels from turning I’m reckless; running through your loaded mind I’m infectious, and you know I’m ready to burn It's all down the drain when I needed you, I needed you. gripping your soul! The hate and the pain, it won't see me through, well sad but true. I’m reckless; and you know I’m ready to burn, I’m infectious I walk the narrow edge of life, like a stone I'm falling I hear the sadness in your voice, in my own addiction If you don’t, I won't know, to see you again. If you don’t, I won't know, to see you again. If you don’t, I won't know, to see you again.

Shadow Shapes are in my windowpane, My path heading towards victory Welcome to a world where paradise is running through your veins I’ll crack your skull, I’ll eat your soul, set your eyes on fire. Feeling all the rage, see me up on stage, you can’t have this power You can lie and try to slow me down Distorted eyes just try to look around. Welcome to a world where paradise is running through your veins I’ll crack your skull, I’ll eat your soul, set your eyes on fire. Feeling all the rage, see me up on stage, you can’t have this power Power, Power When you walk a mile, just to dig a hole. Distorted eyes, I need to reach my goal. Welcome to a world where paradise is running through your veins Forever, where ever its Russian roulette, the flip of a coin it’s a soul that’s in debt The eyes they burn with fear and regret, I said it before, they never forget they never forget, I’ll crack your skull, they never forget, I’ll eat your soul, they never forget, I’ll crack your skull, they never forget, I’ll eat your soul, never forget.

Scattered laser lights, load another clip; clouds of dust are rolling in now, going all the way, sewing seeds of death; coming out of your television. It’s Time to zero in, the battle it begins; clouds of dust are rolling in now. Missiles on the path, we'll let them feel the wrath; Carry out your final mission Shaking is the nightmare, the bones are in your closet waiting Waking from my nightmare with the candles set aflame Clouds of dust are rolling in The sanctions and the policies, and globalist apologies Are on the nightly news EXTRA, EXTRA, read all about it. The truth is in captivity, it's your responsibility It's time to light the fuse. EXTRA, EXTRA, Read all about it Running from the blast, turn it into cash; clouds of dust are rolling in now, set the story loose, judges hide the truth, holding back your true suspicion. Your blood is on the street, watching on repeat; clouds of dust just are rolling in now, is it channel 3, or an RPG; working for another station? Shaking is the nightmare, the bones are in your closet waiting Waking from my nightmare with the candles set aflame Clouds of dust are rolling in The sanctions and the policies, and globalist apologies Are on the nightly news EXTRA, EXTRA, read all about it. The truth is in captivity, it's your responsibility Its time to light the fuse. EXTRA, EXTRA, read all about it The sanctions and the policies, and globalist apologies Are on the nightly news EXTRA, EXTRA, read all about it. The truth is in captivity, it's your responsibility Its time to light the fuse. EXTRA, EXTRA, read all about it

Caught in a nightmare, just the other night , visions of the here and now, or the end of my life, cover my eyes with silver and gold, so I can pay the ferry man down the road If wishes they were horses, then beggars they would ride I’m firing rubber bullets, that’s how I stay alive If wishes they were horses, then beggars they would ride I’m firing rubber bullets, that’s how I stay alive, I roll the devils dice Numbness chills my brain as if I’m in a trance, time to transpire from my mind, my mind, my time my discombobulated emotions I’m only skin and bones If wishes they were horses, then beggars they would ride I’m firing rubber bullets, that’s how I stay alive If wishes they were horses, then beggars they would ride I’m firing rubber bullets, that’s how I stay alive, I roll the devils dice Shadows unfold, embrace the cold Shadows unfold, embrace the cold Sitting on the throne, high above it all, finger on the trigger, it’s just a subroutine, how can I stay unscathed all the time, my body, my body it’s always moving in slow motion? I’m only skin and bones If wishes they were horses, then beggars they would ride I’m firing rubber bullets, that’s how I stay alive If wishes they were horses, then beggars they would ride I’m firing rubber bullets, that’s how I stay alive, I roll the devils dice Shadows unfold, embrace the cold Shadows unfold, embrace the cold

Were dangerous, we fall silent Were dangerous, we fall silent Wise man came just to tell a tale, weapons aimed fired. Fallen angels playing off of your fears. Bones are crushed and bodies buried, deep beneath the ground. Men of power, always blood on their hands Nothing but the innocent living to be free, my thoughts are fading away Set them on fire take the air they breathe, normal thoughts are fading, to stop the war machine My thoughts are fading away. Were dangerous, we fall silent Were dangerous, we fall silent Toxic bondage of your mind, advocates of war Women children young men running I think they’re all insane, Insane Nothing but the innocent living to be free, my thoughts are fading away Set them on fire take the air they breathe, normal thoughts are fading, to stop the war machine My thoughts are fading away. Were dangerous, we fall silent Were dangerous, we fall silent

I don’t want to live my life this way, feeling like a trained monkey Crack the whip; leave the welt, laser guided missiles, hit below the belt, I’m just sitting here, eyelids burning, lonely dreamer, time can be invisible Snap the chain, start to flow, vocal pressure rising and I’m ready to blow, I’m just sitting here, eyelids burning, lonely dreamer, time can be invincible I don’t want to live my life this way, feeling like a trained monkey Take me away from the hell that I pay, feeling like a trained monkey So long, so long, so long, the feelings got to go So long, so long, so long, I got to let you know Face the pain, cross your eyes; throw a label at me with mass disguise I’m just sitting here, eyelids burning, lonely dreamer, time can be invisible, Open your eyes, not your wrists; dredging through life, swinging your fists, I’m just sitting here, eyelids burning, lonely dreamer, time can be invincible I don’t want to live my life this way, feeling like a trained monkey So long, so long, so long, the feelings got to go So long, so long, so long, I got to let you know Don’t want to live my life this way, don’t want to be a trained monkey Take me away from the hell that I pay, one more time I face the pain. Don’t want to live my life this way, don’t want to be a trained monkey. Just stop, chop the rhythms that I drop, I’m never coming down from the mountain top, yea. So long, so long, so long So long, so long, so long I got to let you know I don’t want to live my life this way.

Gamble with the devil, gamble with the devil, In silence there’s no sound, your 6ft underground I live, Live the law right, many years in prison destroys a man’s life Reflections in the mirror, the lines that crack your face Thoughts in your head, now the world’s a lonely place In comes the pain when you Gamble with the Devil, He’s silent there’s no sound Too late you won’t hear him; He’ll take control of your soul and you’re down, down, into the darkest hole. Eyes of beauty encased in pain, violence and drug abuse killing one another, can’t you read the signs, damaging the future one soul at a time? As the gavel falls, it’s not a masquerade Captivated judgment just tears the heart away Handcuffed nightmare, that’s how the story goes Lost underground, those thoughts that no one knows In comes the pain when you Gamble with the devil, He’s silent there’s no sound Too late you won’t hear him; He’ll take control of your soul and you’re down, down, into the darkest hole. Eyes of beauty encased in pain, violence and drug abuse killing one another, can’t you read the signs, damaging the future one soul at a time? Down into the darkest hole, In comes the pain when you Gamble with the devil, gamble with the devil, In silence there’s no sound, your 6ft underground Gamble with the devil, gamble with the devil, In silence there’s no sound, your 6ft underground.
