Thirteen times I went to the well
To draw my thoughts, I'll gather and tell
Like bricks that I've laid to build my life
Those that crumbled only caused me strife

Thoughts became words, cast into the sea
But they returned, always haunting me
Like a severed arm washed up on the shore
I just don't think I can give anymore

Because I've lived, how many times do I have to die?
Because I've lived, how many lives do I have to die?

Thirteen times and it's been lucky for me
After everything, you still want me to bleed
Thirteen ways to see the devil in my eyes
Because I stood here thirteen times and I'm still alive

At thirteen I started down this path
Fueled with anger, music was my wrath
Years of clawing at scars that never healed
Drowning my mind, the thoughts are too real

Because I've lived, how many times do I have to die?
Because I've lived, how many lives do I have to die?

Thirteen times and it's been lucky for me
After everything, you still want me to bleed
Thirteen ways to see the devil in my eyes
Because I stood here thirteen times and I'm still alive

I can't get out; I can't jump out
Too much to face; I can't erase

Because I've lived, how many times do I have to die?
Because I've lived, how many lives do I have to die?

Thirteen times and it's been lucky for me
After everything, you still want me to bleed
Thirteen ways to see the devil in my eyes
Because I stood here thirteen times and I'm still alive

I can't get out; I can't jump out
Too much to face; I can't erase

Thirteen times and it's been lucky for me

    All in all it's about his own life !!! Dave was born september 13th, he started playing guitar at 13, this is his 13th album on his career, & he says that 13 is a lucky number for him, mine as well.. That doesn't make me an illuminati or something !!! & if u ever noticed, beside the number 13, there nothing else to proove that he is an illuminati !!

    13 has to do with free masonry. Endgame isnt the end of his career as some think. Its referring to the nwo final plan, as well as alex jones' documentary im guessing.. As their good friends

    It's about the life of an illumanatie. " at thirteen i started down this path", it also says something about the devil in my eyes. Dave mustain believes in the nwo and illumanatie

    In my opinion, it's about vic rattlehead. He's been on the front or back cover of every album so far (i've stood here 13 times). Someone else add something?
