Luck. Runs. Out.
Crawl from the wreckage one more time
Horrific memories twist the mind
Dark, rugged, cold and hard to turn
Path of destruction, feel it burn
Still life
Incarnation
Still life
Infamy

Hallucination
Heresy
Still you run, what's to come?
What's to be?

'Cause we hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long
Feel us breathe upon your face
Feel us shift, every move we trace
Hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long, yeah
Luck. Runs. Out!

You crawl back in
But your luck runs out-ahh

Luck. Runs. Out.

The light that is not light is here
To flush you out with your own fear
You hide, you hide, but will be found
Release your grip without a sound

Still life
Immolation
Still life
Infamy

Hallucination
Heresy
Still you run, what's to come?
What's be?

'Cause we hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long
Feel us breathe upon your face
Feel us shift, every move we trace
Hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long
Luck. Runs.Out.

You crawl back in
But your luck runs out

Then you crawl back in
Into your obsession
Never to return
This is your confession

Hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long
Feel us breathe upon your face
Feel us shift, every move we trace
Hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down all nightmare long, yeah
Luck. Runs. Out!

You crawl back in
But your luck runs out

Your luck runs out!

    The abstract form of the nightmares that chase us; through dreams, personal fears, real and imagined threats of violence, confrontation, destruction, annihilation...

    This song is about the hounds of tindalos, those creatures that can chase everyone through time and space, there's no way out... You hide you hide but will be found !

    Their newer music isn't as good as the good old stuff. Ride the lightning, master of puppets, kill em all, black album, etc. Only the earliest albums were amazing imo. The rest are just good.

    @butterfly992 i feel the same way about being troubled and metallica getting me through it. When i hear this song i think either alien invasion or bounty hunters.
