01. The Passing

Music by Lamb of God
[Instrumental]


02. In Your Words

A sacred cash cow with sickly tits
Dripping temptation for hypocrites
to death she's beaten
The prosperous endlessly stating the obvious

Caught in your words, sever the knot this time
Somebody show me their true face
Face me once as I leave all that I despise
Face me as I unleash this hate refined

Indict the blameless
Transparent designs
Pathetic and shameless
Crucified
A legend in his own mind, enthroned by lies
A cheap Machiavelli plots his demise

Caught in your words, sever the knot this time
Somebody show me their true face
Face me once as I leave all that I despise
Face me as I unleash this hate refined
Face me as I leave all this far behind
Face me as I unleash this hate refined

What once gave life
Now infested with plague
The lamb lies with maggots
Blinded, gagged, betrayed

What once gave life
Now infested with plague
The lamb lies with maggots
The corpse bloated with rage


03. Set To Fail

You want to blame me for the way you hate yourself
You think you can find who you are in someone else
Criticize to better your relative positioning
You've got a long way to go

So go and weave your tale of woe
Convincing yourself it's so
You're so set to fail

Somewhere you've finally lost your way
Only yourself left to betray

A nameless heir apparent, paranoid despair
You take great measure to appear like you don't care
Precision and persuasion must precede the proper lie
You've lost it before you began

So go and weave your tale of woe
Convincing yourself it's so
you're so set to fail

Somewhere you've finally lost your way
Only yourself left to betray


04. Contractor

Music & lyrics by Lamb Of God
Chopping lines in international sand
Feeding blood junky habits of the elephant man
Quenching his thirst with Black Water rising
Executive outcomes on a burning horizon

Yeah motherfucker, let's take a ride
We're rolling route Irish, someone has got to die
Trick or treat, it's IEDs
So roll the dice as we leave, cause
It's 8 miles of pure luck with more bang for Sam's buck
Guaran-fucking-teed
Someone will bleed
Guaran-fucking-teed
Someone will bleed

Privatize to conceal all the lies
Big business is boomin' like its the 4th of July
No need for all the formalities
Jump the kangaroo courts and plant the lynching trees

Yeah motherfucker, let's take a ride
Running red lights in a green zone, someone has got to die
Hidden Aegis, nothing here to see
So load the dice for me please, and
Let's snort the bottom line
Crude cashed into refined
Guaran-fucking-teed
Just sign the deed
Guarn-fucking-teed
Someone will bleed

Someone has got to die

Ours is not to reason why
Ours is but to do if the pay rate's right
Black liquid assets fuck the Mujaheddin
Paint their picket fences red with the American dream

Lay your hammer hammer down, get the job done right
Jacked up and clocked in into a fire fight
Covert reactions and ya never saw me
A glass parking lot in the American dream

They all die
Fucking murder

Guaran-fucking-teed
Someone will bleed
Guaran-fucking-teed

Lay your hammer hammer down, get the job done right
Jacked up and clocked in into a fire fight
Covert reactions and ya never saw me
A glass parking lot in the American dream


05. Fake Messiah

Everything you've ever begged me to be
Could never have meant any less to me
Everything you've ever asked me to say
It's so far away from the truth

Fake messiah
Stitches sown in your eyes
Fake messiah
Prophecy now denied

Over and over and ever again
Defending your insignificance
Useless intent hidden behind your mask
A coward's voice... Anonymous
So far away from the truth

Fake messiah
Stitches sown in your eyes
Fake messiah
Prophecy now denied
Fake messiah
Open mouth, drawing flies
Fake messiah
Prophecy now denied

Generation failure
Suspended in irrelevance
Slit you wide open
Just to see what you're made of
So far away from the truth...

Fake messiah
Stitches sown in your eyes
Fake messiah
Prophecy now denied
Fake messiah
Open mouth, drawing flies
Fake messiah
Prophecy now denied


06. Grace

Broken, Bones and the will
Capacity to disappear in misery saves
Soaking, pain as a thrill, hate to instill
Compassion's a cage

Forgiving the father
Read the story on my skin
I'll be the martyr
Falling from his grace again

Sunken, sooner or later
We crawl our way back into our favorite hole
Drunken, swallow the savior
And follow him to hang from the highest pole

Forgiving the father
Read the story on my skin
Tell me more about the man I should have been
I'll be the martyr
Falling from his grace again
This is where the end begins


07. Broken Hands

I can feel your fear and weakness
I see my own in the mirrors of your eyes
Carved into a corner hopeless
There's death ahead and doom behind
There's a bad storm blowing in
And most of us won't make it
The wreckage of your past
Means nothing now, forsake it

The memories cripple you
You're torn apart, your doubt must

Die
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands

Well there's those that do
And those that just do talking
We're all going through hell
It's burn or keep on walking
The blackguards sing their shanty
Pure death riding the wind
Right now it's do or die
Now will you choose to live

The memories that ruin you
You're torn apart your doubt must

Die
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands

You best delay self-pity
Locked in devastation's throes
The noose waits you swinging
A blade of malice cuts the rope

Hostility ensues, no attempt to repent
your struggles vindicate the illest of intent

Die
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands
It only fell apart 'cause you let it
Bled of all you had to lose
Pick up the pieces with your broken
Hands


08. Dead Seeds

And you may tremble before hell's gates
You may watch as the heavens fall
And you may slight the hands of fate
You may heed the siren's call

And you may reach every golden shore
Witness repent in the heathen
And you may dance in the sands of the war
You may sleep in the cradle of Eden

Betrayed your prophets
Dead seeds buried deep
An army of none
We'll prey on the weak

And you may walk through the river run dry
You may strike down the giant with stone
And you may never again speak a lie
Confess every sin and atone

And you may drink from the infidel's blood
As their civilization collapses
You may rejoice in the cleanse of the flood
And stare into the face of apocalypse

Betrayed your prophets
Dead seeds buried deep
An army of none
We'll prey on the weak

You will not comprehend
Or find words that will describe
The will of God and man
Until you watch someone die

Betrayed your prophets
Dead seeds buried deep
An army of none
We'll prey on the weak


09. Everything To Nothing

Then you wake...
Another body bag, pathetic,
Picture frame obituary faded in the attic
A shadow of someone you used to be
You've seen so many in these flames
And swore that you'd never become the cliche
A long forgotten memory
And when you wake...

Everything you ever wanted
Everything you never had
Everything learned forgotten and dead
Everything turns to nothing

another day, a little dirt for the grave
Is it worth everything that you gave
What a beautiful way to waste away
Consumed by dependency
A lesson in despondency
A long forgotten memory
And when you wake...

Everything you ever wanted
Everything you never had
Everything learned forgotten and dead
Everything turns to nothing

And when you wake...
How quickly the master
Turns into the slave
Slowly succumbing more
Every dying day

Everything you ever wanted
Everything you never had
Everything learned forgotten and dead
Everything turns to nothing


10. Choke Sermon

Sermon sung me slow to sleep
Faster if I had a choice
With every breath another death
Still so in love with your own voice
Idle threats to hide regrets
Excuses serve to bide the time
Cover tracks, double back
We summon silence so divine

Greeted with a thundering
absence of applause

Choke on your own words
Lies are venom in your veins
Burn from the inside
And never speak my name

Jesus complex, gag reflex
Trigger happy redundancy
No thrill, no chase, no saving grace
Hypnotic in monotony

Loaded with a salt rock shot
You say you're everything you're not
What might have been is all you've got
From here and now you're dead to me

Greeted with a thunderous
absence of applause

Choke on your own words
Lies are venom in your veins
Burn from the inside
And never speak my name

Nothing will ever erase
Or undo your disgrace
A lonely self-embrace
They've long forgotten you
Still cling to what it was
A lost and hopeless cause
Forever mourning your loss
They've long forgotten you

Murdered slowly in minute
increments of time
Pissing up a rope
Another moment passes by

Choke on your own words
Lies are venom in your veins
Burn from the inside
And never speak my name


11. Reclamation

Humanity's a failed experiment
Walking the path to extinction
Spinning it's wheels endlessly
Grease them with oil and uranium
The earth will shake
and the waters will rise
The elements reclaim what was taken

The skyline is set ablaze with regret
Ashes cover a falling silhouette
The city will reap what it's sewn and ignite
Watching as the city burns tonight

Blindly consuming mass manufactured faith
Mankind is a festering parasite
Relentlessly draining it's host dry
Nailing belief to a cross of genocide
The elements reclaim what was taken

The skyline is set ablaze with regret
Ashes cover a falling silhouette
The city will reap what it's sewn and ignite
Watching as the city burns tonight

Only after the last tree's cut
And the last river poisoned
Only after the last fish is caught
Will you find that money cannot be eaten

And everything becomes irrelevant
As the sky tears open
Fire rains down,
the fourth world comes to an end
Push the button light the match
feel the fault lines detach
Crosshairs in the evening light
I sit and watch the city burn tonight

The city burns tonight


12. We Die Alone

[Verse 1]
A moment in time worthy only of solitude.
A stranger not meant for another to see.

Are we the abandoned?
Are we the deserter?
Lived in the night so his wickedness way.

The faces light up their screens,
as the wealthy cash in on the war.
The body counts rise, the ratings will soar.

Another deceiver.
The liar, the patriot.
Counting the lies and keeping the score.
The score.

[Pre-chorus:]
Look at the light based on faith that deserts you.
You are the hunted, the victim, the prey and the fallen.

[Chorus:]
We die alone.

[Verse 2]
A lamb in the line has been lead to the slaughter.
Another to join all the ghosts from before.
(Join all the ghosts from before.)

Another believer, another casualty.
Can't tell the way out from a drain to the floor.
The floor.

[Pre-chorus]

[Chorus]


13. Shoulder Of Your God

Death lies eternal
A heathen rapture consumes the light
Impaled on its axis,
The world around me lays down to die

Immaculate contraception
The massive beating, opiate
Apocalyptic conception,
Planted, its seething reprobates

Unremitting desolation
There is no reprieve
The end goes

The angel's eyes are gouged with tragedy
The end goes
The fallen host endure mortality
The end goes

A black pasteur,
devoid of the shepherd,
where you choose to dwell

Venomous concepts,
Catalyst of damnation.
Unease filtered through chemical haze
(You're so far gone.)

Sole purveyor of your own unrest.
Go cry on the shoulder of your god
(You're so far gone.)
The catalyst of damnation.

A lone voice in the void,
There is no reprieve.
The end goes

No answer will be found to the endless Why
The end goes
Deeds done in darkness will always come to light
The end goes.

A black pasteur,
devoid of the shepherd,
where you choose to dwell

Venomous concepts,
Catalyst of damnation
Unease filtered through chemical haze
(You're so far gone)

Sole purveyor of your own unrest
Go cry on the shoulder of your god
(You're so far gone)
The catalyst of damnation

The nephlim walk the earth again
Primordial chaos resurrected
The divine narcotic strung-out seraphim
The catalyst, catalyst of damnation

In the code of life, a spiral death, a rattle from within
The healing sties, no answers lie in a world without end

Venomous concepts,
Catalyst of damnation.
Unease filtered through chemical haze
(You're so far gone.)

Sole purveyor of your own unrest
Go cry on the shoulder of your god
(You're so far gone)
The catalyst of damnation


14. Condemn The Hive

Soon come a burning,
Soon come a reaving,
Spare the rod, spoil the child,
Resume the righteous beating.

Hubris has been spoon-fed to you,
On a silver platter,
The weak will run weeping,
Delusion shattered.

No one, owes you a god damn thing.

Bloated with pride, the privileged ones,
A walking portrayal, your life's fucking done,
Bloated with pride, the privileged ones,
Condemn the hive.

The well's run dry,
Narcissist fills it with tears of blood.
Poison Juno's choking lapdog
deepen the cut.

No one, cares what the fuck you think.

Bloated with pride, the privileged ones,
A walking portrayal, your life's fucking done,
Bloated with pride, the privileged ones,
Condemn the hive.

Say goodbye, worthless beginners,
Severed all reason, in a fractured mirror,
Solid stares, uneven high expectations,
A generations, entitlement, comes undone.

Your life is fucking done.

Your pitiful life,
CONDEMNING THE HIVE,
So feeble inside,
CONDEMNING THE HIVE,
oh,
CONDEMNING THE HIVE.

Bloated with pride, the privileged ones,
A walking portrayal, your life's fucking done,
Bloated with pride, the privileged ones,
the privileged ones.
