Shadow 05:24
Can you feel that shadow? V1: Forever remembered? Ever after should we wait? Enshrine the emptiness and hate your saving grace Feel the shadows creeping in, no time to waste Still try to run away but the fear keeps pace, yeah Pre chorus: Death will be your master Follow you from here on after Silent whisper in vain Yet no escape Chorus: Cause the shadow on my back Yeah the shadow on my back (can you feel that) Shadow on my back Yeah the shadow on my back Tells my fate V2: In a race with my past every day Madness tempts my frantic mind-state When it takes you there’s no retreat My mind’s a cage and no one can set me free, yeah yeah. Prechorus Chorus Can you feel that shadow?

Today I thought back of that nemesis friend of mine It kept me up awake at nite Seemingly Lost in time He Dusted off new ways to get his revenge But i Bring death and destruction to get my stories end To this memory it's funny; it flows like a melody But sometimes it seems more like the future of my enemies I remember it like yesterday its playing thru my mind The whole night a blur then quickly unwinds Let's travel back in time to another culture Before I ever could say I told ya So and put truth in a cold shoulder what he always never had were friends who wouldn't stab his back And all the while a mother who could not stop smoking crack A father who never gave two shits and a can of beer Who beat him Like a red headed stepchild but the bloodline is clear No one ever knew it, and no one ever guessed that this once lost and lonely kid Would grow up to be a menace Chorus: Its Right around the corner its right around the bend a future with no love and terror with no end thats what they say to me today with a dirty fucking smile but i pulled myself outa fear been crawling for miles V2: See He'd threaten and intimidate bully and repress Everyone he ever thought could strive for success Who maybe had a better chance than he could ever have Of getting off of lonely street to leave his dead beat past He couldn't chase the memory of 20 years of pain Obsessed, he turns to meth coursing thru his veins Now he's scratching off his face in a lowbrow part of town himself now a junkie a real joker type a clown Cause now everything's a joke life's one big laugh But if he saw it from the outside this ain't batman or breaking bad He's got his own reasons for it And he's justified enough He's got 10 million reasons to keep sparking up the stuff We were once in the same station and under the same bar But life has its own desires written in the stars I still hate him and wish that he would die violently I had hoped he'd smoke too much and give up silently Abandon his life so worthless cause he didnt rise above He gave into self pity and wore depression like a glove But all the anger towards you was motivation to an end, should I have cut the dude open broke his windpipe with a wrench Stomped on his chest until his sternum met the floor In a bloody rage I'd scream till I couldn't stomp no more I know He wished the same for me so I'll never try to rewind To that place in time My memory Of that nemesis friend of mine Chorus: It's right around the corner Right around the bend A future with no love and terror with no end That's what they say to me today with a dirty fucking smile But I pulled myself out of fear been crawling for miles

Unspoken 04:33
V1: Reading whispers on the wind Scry the writings on the wall Sweet stench of truth man made Has gone a deceived you all Next to that an echo hall Feeds you lies for the day Your own needs keep you locked in chains And that’s how it’s going to stay Cause in the age of information Ignorance is choice You know you’ve had the answers all along When systems fail, this is what I’ll tell ya Chorus: When your heart is in the lines unspoken never trust your eyes You’ve gotta listen to your world some times if you want to see true from the lies Sometimes it’s in the lines unspoken we lose ourselves fast You’ve gotta listen to your heart sometimes Or your unspoken life Could be your last. V2: this world’s constructed of the impercievable Another world comes each brand new day And it might seem impossible or unknown An empty dream of heresy But it’s been said that before every good man died The silent paved the way So speak your peace, and live your truth Build your dream to shared reality Cause in the age of information Ignorance is a choice You know we’ve had the answers all along When systems fail man, this is what I’ll tell ya Chorus: When your heart is in the lines upspoken Never trust your eyes You’ve gotta listen to your world sometimes if you want to see through the lies Sometimes it’s in the lines unspoken we lose ourselves fast You’ve gotta listen to your mind sometimes or your unspoken life Could be your last. Could be your last.

You try to be a trendsetter Try to write a new cliche But you just end up spitballing while your words get in your way Quit with your baby talk Nobody thinks it’s cute No one likes a whiner Your jokes aren’t that astute Oh yeah, oh right. Chorus: You may feel betrayed You may feel I’m a liar You may feel I Led you own But trust me I didn’t try I only try to respect you And now I wonder why Cause respect just doesn’t matter When the trend you set’s a lie Just a lie... you’re just a... V2: Expect so unexpectedly and grief is all you give Of course he went and left you girl To him your just a bitch Yeah, I used to be your friend When I thought you were an honest one But I found the secrets you couldn’t hide Weren’t just the minor ones Oh yeah. All right... oh yeah? All right! Chorus: You may feel betrayed You may feel I’m a liar You may feel I Led you own But trust me I didn’t try I only try to respect you And now I wonder why Cause respect just doesn’t matter When the trend you set’s a lie Just a lie... you’re just a...

V1: I walk through this field on burning feet Blood and sand mixed with my sweat turned dry I feel like emptying my mind again When I hide it’s scarred inside Chorus: Do it again, do it again Solder my bones to this chair my friend Freedom is dead, freedom is dead Ensconced in pain instead V2: You show me you’ve got no more to bleed outa me Speak in tongues you lash till I agree Grab onto my sanity that flees from me When you seap inside I’ve got nowhere to hide, oh no... Chorus: Do it again, do it again Solder my bones to this chair my friend Freedom is dead, freedom is dead Ensconced in pain instead Bridge: Aware of mistakes/ pushing until you break Freedom is dead/ inside your head Discover your hate/ psychotic break Freedom is dead/ Whip me again Freedom is dead. Freedom is dead Do it again. Inside your head. Inside your head Whip me again- inside your head. Chorus: Do it again, do it again Solder my bones to this chair my friend Freedom is dead, freedom is dead Ensconced in pain instead
