01. Straight For The Sun

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
Gone
Shoot me straight for the sun
I wanna be the only one left
Misdiagnosed condition
Burnt beyond recognition
Sink her straight through the floor
She's not breathing anymore
Choke in this atmosphere
Nothing will be left here
Gone.


02. Desolation

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
Spoken sideways and indirect
Without a single word left unchecked
And by your own admission
No one is ever above suspicion
Defenses never to be let down
The lies readily abound
Gaping jaw tightly wound
CHORUS
In your desolation
Still searching for nowhere
Desolation
Your living in nowhere
Smoking gun, cause and effect
Paradise lost, a beautiful wreck
And to you I solemnly swear
All I ever wanted was away from here
All that for nothing,
what a fucking waste of time
I only took what was rightfully mine
Seek and you shall find
CHORUS
The dying man might take you with him
I swear to you I'll slit the difference
All that for nothing,
What a fucking waste of time


03. Ghost Walking

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
1,2,3
Do you remember when work was won, a fading promise in the light of the
dawn.
Bury this ember under a falling sky, the end of days are the reason to die.
Obliteration never looked so divine.
Holding your breath for the moment in time
You lived through hell, now you're trying to die
The skin is healed but your bleeding inside.
Shots fired just to numb the pain
There's no one left to save.

I'm Blind on the Shining Path.
Ghost walking in the Aftermath.
Hypnotised 60 cycle hum
The Broken Cadence of a Distant Drum.
21 to 1 I'm liking the odds,
A Blood Junkie with a Lightning Rod,
A Dirty Rig and a heavenly Nod,
And soon you Wind Up Nowhere.

Obliteration never looked so Divine
Holding your breath for the moment in time
You lived through hell, now your trying to die
The skin is healed but your bleeding inside.
Shots fired just to numb the pain
There's no one left to save.
There's no one left to save.
There's no one left to save.

You chase the dragon but it follows you home
You lost the demon trace and broke their home

Desolation Never Looked so Divine.
Promise Yourself for the very last time
You lived through hell, now your trying to die
The skin is healed but your bleeding inside.
Shots fired just to just to numb the pain
There's no one left to save.
There's no one left to save.
Ohhh There's no one left.
A Fever Dream

There's no one left to save.
Shots fired just to end the pain.
There's no one left to save


04. Guilty

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
Never fear the truth, or lie correctly used
When everything you do comes back three times to you
By any other name, the guilty still remain
Suspended in the feign, pawn to his own intentions
Still hidden in the fold
The story bought and sold
Commodified indoctrinate expendables into the splendid lie
CHORUS
Bound by the chain of lies you've wrapped around
You're trapped in regression
Dying in the face of the truth
Stoic in silence we're blind inside the void
Ruins remind us if all we've destroyed
Dead rail, no way back from here
The mainline to nowhere
Still hidden in the fold
The story bought and sold
CHORUS
You're just gluing your amber eyes shut
As the world keeps spinning around your cage
While you're waiting for the ghost to bite
And that ghost will bite
Still spinning in the veil
Locked in beyond the pale
Internalize and fabricate escapable into the deadly lie
Bound by the chain of lies
Filled with aggression, watch you die in the face of truth


05. The Undertow

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
You always needed people like me
Directions for your finger to point
A crooked dealer's blaming spree
I'm guaranteed to disappoint
You're weak and scared and cutting raw deals
But fortune always favors the bold
I´ll bet it all and crush your bluff
I´ll never yield nor even fold
And I won´t shoulder the blame
CHORUS
Am the one who´s left to take the fall
I fight the constant undertow
You always needed a distraction
A target for the stones that you thrown
To draw attention to your actions
I´m tailor made so lock & load
Oh, you're telling tales
You spineless coward
Your word's not worth it's weight in shit
Back against the wall, belligerent
I won't shoulder the blame
So high and mighty
But when the bottom drops out
You're gonna find me standing where you left me
CHORUS
Deal the lest hand, let the cards fall where they may
From your castle made of sand you're looking down at me
So high and mighty
But when the bottom drops out
You'll have to face me waiting where you left me


06. The Number Six

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
Sloth is the enemy of greatness
Reflection a scalpel to my mind.
We strive as you leisurely criticize
A free ride until you find that you've dug your own grave
Lie by lie.

Just a running mouth
Poison words you throw about
Drag you to your end
The number six
Leviathan.

You've dug your own grave with your spite
You've dug your own grave lie by lie

A cancer that needs to be cut out
Sweet slander the razor to your throat
Trim the fat
A loose end to be tied up and cast aside
Left to find that you've dug your own grave with your spite
Just a running mouth
Poison words you throw about
Drag you to your end
The number six
Leviathan.

A relentless imposition by a self-fulfilling travesty
From one who is just rotting there
In slut's wool and zero history

Aesthetic condemning
Erratic condescending

An empty barrel always makes the most noise
And I begin to feel my hands
my hands around your throat.

Erratic condescending

You've dug your own grave with your spite
You've dug your own grave lie by lie
A running mouth and poison words will be your end
The number six
Leviathan.

Poison words you throw about
Drag you to your end
The number six
Leviathan.

You've dug your own grave
You've dug your own grave

The number six
Leviathan.

You've dug your own grave
A running mouth

You've dug your own grave
and poison words

You've dug your own grave
will be your end

The number six
Leviathan.


07. Barbarosa

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
Instrumental


08. Invictus

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
Unconquered
Life is born of agony's strain
Manifested in suffering
Most live crippled by fear
I'd rather walk off on bloody stumps until I've bled dry
Yeah, we're all gonna die
CHORUS
You brand it a crisis
I name i tan honor
To face what arises
To remain unconquered
All the worst that I feared has come to pass
And dispair is in an endless supply
I dug my way to bottom of the bloody truth
Buried beneath a spotles lie
I'm sworn to stay the course that I alone have chosen
Because we're all gonna die
CHORUS
I'm cauterized
I'm gonna heat the blade
I'm gonna ride this pain
Unconquered
Life's a fatal disease without a cure
But as it kills me I'll stare right in it's eye
There's no way out
I'm sworn to stay the courset hat I alone have chosen
So how will you die?
CHORUS
There's no way out
Unconquered


09. Cheated

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
So inevitable another lie another reason to justify
Tearing it down
Honesty such a novelty so we king ourselfs with a plastic crown
Casualty of a daydream nation
Close acquantance, no relation
Search and destroy
Dignity we left laying along the way
To everyone's dismay predictable cliché Kindred enemies
CHORUS
The walking dead living a lie
Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
So unvoidable another fight sell the ticket and crash the ride
Burn it down
A legacy of brutality So caught in the progress of weeding out
The chopping Block starving for a neck
Pointing fingers and stabing backs
Never question, conformity
The big take over under the way
Much to our dismay A lucrative display Perpetual decay
CHORUS
Left to destroy themselves
Yet somehow still alive
Battling for the best position, posturing for recognition
The best days thrown away
In an ag of quarrel
Butcher the memories
Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?


10. Insurrection

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
When the walls fall around you is when you begin to find
That the depths you have found have become now too hard to climb
You reconcile your pain in the loneliest refrain
And crawl tied and bound to the one thing you can't leave behind
CHORUS
And start over again. This insurrection
The same reflection. Perpetual
And start over again and again and again and again
This insurrection
A broken voice without a word to live by
Eyes slammed shut watch the world go by
It should have seen way better than this
You can't anticipate the thing that you miss
And how long till you let it go
Master unreality Nothing to show and in the end
Tops the mountain of nowhere
First in the line dying to get back there
You can't get back there
CHORUS
First in the line to catch a glimps of the shrine
The closest we ever got to divine
Irrefutable indisputable infalliole impossible to deny


11. Terminally Unique

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
There's nothing new under the gun
Cognitive dissonance
Wallow in sardonic fear while your will breaks like glass
Throw on the blinders, ignore the signs
Sink ever deeper, swallow the lie
How far did you think that you could run?
You crossed the last meridian
As life passes you by
Outside the fishbowl looking in
Clarity to bear witness
Oblivious and obstinate
And you're a fucking mess
Seal all the exits, tie down your hands
Burn all the bridges, head in the sand
How far did you think that you could run?
You crossed the last meridian
And it's all coming down now as the clock ticks on
Your life is passing by
Awaken
Singing the same tired old song
Predictable and somnabulant
Suffering from terminal uniqueness
When will you be awaken?
Your life is passing by


12. To The End

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
I've held the hand of god
And I've ang the devil's song
And when it comes my time no tears are gonna fall
Buts ome will light the fire
And some will mourn the one
Left hanging for the ire of their departed son
CHORUS
Oh lord have mercy thank god you're gone
Here's to the end, thank God you're gone
They finally shoved you in the box they could never fit you in
An empty cell forever locked
So much for best intensions
But some will load the gun
And some will hone the knife
Some will raise the fist as they recall your life
We've waited for so long, thank god you're gone
I've held the hand of god
You'l l never erease the past or regain what's lost
You're finally gone
So far gone


13. Visitation

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
The path I set out on took a turn
When the axis shifted
This is not the life I envisioned
What's done is done the crime is committed
Now the beast has come home to roost
He returns with blood on his hands
Caught in the trap of meeting
The laws of supply reprimand
My blood is boiling
CHORUS
I can't feel my own skin
Tough I can see it crawling
Can't expose all these sins
But I can see them falling down
There's no escape from building tension
The pressure valve has been refitted
A lost plot in constant revision
A rising storm that's never abated
You can't know enough till too much
The envelope is decimated
Too far gone now to reverse my course and be subjugated
And my blood keeps boiling
CHORUS
This is a labor of hate
This is how I choose to survive
The only way I know to exist
The road is hard and the cost is high
But I was build for this
My labor of hate
CHORUS


14. King Me

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
I saw the world through the lens of a pinhole camera
I saw nothing. I was blind
In between a black hole and a super nova is where you'll find me
Imploding and expanding simultaneously
No longer blind
I'd been running away for so long
When I finally caught myself there wasn't much left
The script's last page is blank
And the medicine is gone
A sick monster, a twisted dark matter
On a heavier trip than you can comprehend
A tornado trying to mend the life it scattered
Waiting for nothing to begin
A flatline, my insides are turning out
King me is killing me
I keep walking past the places I was born in
Now their faces are blank, shiny and dead
I don't recognize a thing, I can't recall them
A closed book that I can never read again
A flatline, my insides are turning out
The lights fade, this final war starts now
King me is killing me
All of that is ending now for I have arisen
Survived myself somehow, dead and imprisoned
I'm fighting to live if I am to see the day
I swear I'll never sleep again
I am no man's slave
I wanted the fog to lift but I was living in a cloud
Nostalgia is grinding the life from today
The present always dies in future memories
And king me is killing me
Cut wide open and bleeding to death for all to see
King me is killing me
He's killing me
He won't kill me
I won't let him kill me
He won't kill me


15. The Passing

Music by Lamb of God
Instrumental


16. In Your Words

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
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


17. Set To Fail

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
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


18. Walk With Me In Hell

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
Pray for blood,
Pray for the cleansing,
Pray for the flood,
Pray for the end of this nightmare.
This lie of a life can as quickly as it came dissolve.
We seek only reprieve and welcome the darkness.
The myth of a meaning so lost and forgotten (forgotten).

Take hold of my hand,
For you are no longer alone.
Walk with me in hell.

Pray for solace,
Pray for resolve,
Pray for a savior,
Pray for deliverance, some kind of purpose.
A glimpse of a light in this void of existence.

Now witness the end of an age.
Hope dies in hands of believers.
Who seek the truth in the liar's eye.

Take hold of my hand,
For you are no longer alone.
Walk with me in hell.

Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell

Take hold of my hand,
For you are no longer alone.
Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell
You're never alone
You're never alone
You're never alone
You're never alone
You're never alone
Walk with me in hell.


19. Hourglass

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
Privileged the chosen few
Blessed with our time in hell
Witness a devine vision, the day we all fell still.
Rapture of the dying age, a shattered hourglass
Wrath of the warring gods and so this too shall pass.
It's only getting worse, not worth a moment's regret
Each dawn another curse, every breath a twisted blade
What will be left behind in the ashes of the wake?
An ill wind blows this way, the edge of the envelope burns
Forbearance and my vengeance, payment for your intent
Fear and death in the wings, in thrall of those fallen from grace
Petty is as petty does, withness the mass disgrace.
God forbid you read the signs, whatch for the meanings between the lines
Gehenna has now arrived, no hindsight for the blind.
Your trust has been misplaced, believed the lies told to your face
Became another casualty and now it's to lat.
You finally made it home, draped in the flag that you fell for.
And so it goes
The ashes of the wake
It's only getting worse...


20. Now You've Got Something To Die For

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
Now you've got something to die for.
Infidel, Imperial
Lust for blood, a blind crusade
Apocalyptic, we count the days.
Bombs to set the people free, blood to feed the dollar tree
Flags for coffins on the screen, oil for the machine
Army of the liberation, gunpoint indoctination
The fires of sedition
Fulfill the prophecy.
Now you've got something to die for.
Send the children to the fire, sons and daughters stack the pyre
Stoke the flame of the empire, live to lie another day
Face of hypocrisy, raping democracy
Apocalyptic, we count the days.
We'll never get out of this hole until we've dug our own grave
And drug the rest down with us, the burning home of the brave
Burn.
Now you've got something to die for.


21. Ruin

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
The knowledge that seeking the favor of another
Means the murder of self.
This is the resolution
The end of all progress
The death of evolution
It bleeds all life away.
Silence speeds the path to the streams of solace that run so few and narrow.
Brooks that babble the sounds of torture.
You will one day rise
To flood the banks of the chosen.
This is the art of ruin.
This is the resolution
The end of all progress
The death of evolution
It bleeds all life away.
I will teach you all that I have mastered
Fear. Pain. Hatred. Power.
This is the art of ruin.


22. As The Palaces Burn

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
The fiends have gagged a generation of pacified fools
Bound by our greed a nation enslaved as corporate tools.
Arise and raze the legacy of their lies
To realize that this in itself is an ascension
Towards the day we revolt.

As the seeds you've cast away take hold
War will be born.
Rejoice, the age of the fall has begun
We'll dance as the palaces burn.

A shot gun blast into the face of deceit
You'll gain your just reward.
We'll not rest until the purge is complete
You will reap what you've sown.

My redemption lies in your demise.
In such a world as this does one dare to think for himself?
The paradox of power and peace will destroy itself
To know the truth and live in fear of no man.
To realize that this in itself is an ascension
Toward the day we revolt.

As the seeds you've cast away take hold
War will be born.
Rejoice, the age of the fall has begun
We'll dance as the palaces burn.

My redemption lies in your demise.
Rejoice, the age of the fall has begun.
We'll dance as the palaces burn.


23. Blacken The Cursed Sun

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
Seize the darkened day, there's only Hell to pay.
And no left to see this prodigal return.
Sweet apathy's black toll, you'll mourn the traded soul.
I'll dig a deeper hole, sanctity a breath away.
Just a breath away.

Blacken the cursed sun,
You're not the only one.
To have sunk so far and low,
There is no tomorrow.

A tragedy on display, a sickness for all to see,
I will kill this part of myself that I hate
And that I see in you.
It was always mine anyways,
There's somethings you can't take away.
I choose not to feel a thing,
Sanctity a breath away.
Just a breath away.

Blacken the cursed sun,
You're not the only one.
To have sunk so far and low,
There is no tomorrow.
Blacken the cursed sun,
Blacken what's yet to be done.
Blacken because now you know,
There is no tomorrow.

You're just a breath away.
You're just a breath away.

Better to die quick, fighting on your feet,
Then to live forever, begging on your knees.
Begging on your, begging on your
Begging on your knees

Can we still be saved?
Hell, no!
Does your God hold a place for us?
Hell, no!
Is there time to repent?
Hell, no!
Will we rise from the dead?
Hell, no!
Can these sins even be forgiven?
Hell, no!
Is there still hope for us?
Hell, no!
Were we ever even alive?
Hell, no!
Is any of this even real?
Hell, no!


24. Laid To Rest

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
If there was a single day I could live... a single breath I could take
I'd trade all the others away.

The blood's on the wall, so you'd might as well just admit it
And bleach out the stains, commit to forgetting it.
You're better off empty and blank, than left with a single pathetic trace of this
Smother another failure, lay this to rest.
Console yourself, you're better alone
Destroy yourself, see who gives a fuck
Absorb yourself, you're better alone
Destroy yourself.

I'll chain you to the truth, for the truth shall set you free
I'll turn the screws of vengeance and bury you with honesty
I'll make all your dreams come to life, then slay them as quickly as they came
Smother another failure, lay this to rest.

Console yourself, you're better alone
Destroy yourself, see who gives a fuck
Absorb yourself, you're better alone
Destroy yourself, see who gives a fuck.

Failure.

If there was a day I could live, if there was a single breath I could take
I'd trade all the others away.


25. Redneck

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
So goddamn easy to write this,
You make it spill on the page.
So drunk on yourself, self-righteous,
A laughing stock of your own fucking sage.

But I ain't one to call names,
Or throw stones in a house of glass.
You try me.

This is a motherfucking invitation
The only one you could ever need.
This is a motherfucking invitation.
You try me.

Just one time you got a reason,
But you had nothing to lose.
A blind preacher for the pin-eyed congregation,
It must be easy to loathe.

But I ain't one of those names,
Or throw stones in a house of glass.
You try me.

This is a motherfucking invitation
The only one you could ever need.
This is a motherfucking invitation.
You try me.

You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.
Just one time.

This is a motherfucking invitation
The only one you could ever need
This is a motherfucking invitation
Just one time

This is a motherfucking invitation
You try me
Just one time
You try me
Just one time
You try me
You try me


26. Black Label

Music & lyrics by Lamb of God
The human confrontation, I've build a phobia.
It takes my essence somewhere,
Somewhere to take control.

I may be far from rocking.
I am the one alone.
I may be far behind lines.
And made them turn away.

I want to know, hey you, watch out!
I've made them turn to cripple, hey you, watch out!
When i will know, who'll know, back fight!
Why time would let me die to control.

I fear nothing, why don't you know!?
I rip my mind and why don't you bleed!?
I fear no one, why you turn back!?
I may not stop.

My freedom can't contain but tell me,
The pain I liberate,
Riff hostility to anyone
Has made us so much hate.
I made them turn from hate but tell me
The pain and suffering
I made them turn from hate but tell me
The pain and suffering
I... know.
