These days of rage have left their stain on me
I've pummeled this world to dust
I've broken these men of blood
Now I wake naked, in the debris

But I'm sick of fighting, sick of crying
Everything mounting up sky high and I must thus

Trust no one
Stay frozen

My moment is here
The enemy's drawing so near

Stay away
Stay away
Stay
Stay away
Stay away
Stay

Stay away
Stay away
Stay away
Break

These chain that bury me
Enemy
Bury me
Stay the fuck away, stay the fuck away

It comes down to this
Your face, my fist

It comes down to my life or yours
My life or yours
All I'll ever do is hurt you

(Stay no
Go away
Stay no
Go away
Stay no
Go away
Don't go
Don't go)

These days of rage have left their stain on me
I see enemies everywhere all the time
Enemies everywhere on all sides

Some are blind, some are useless
Most have succumbed to divine pollution

Human sewage
Hurt them first
Shoot the wounded
Hope hurts

Stay away
Stay away
Stay
Stay away
Stay away
Stay

Stay away
Stay away
Stay away
Break

These chains that bury me
Enemy
Bury me
Stay the fuck away, stay the fuck away

It comes down to this
Your face, my fist

It comes down to my life or yours
My life or yours
All I'll ever do is hurt you

Alone in my own mind
No maps, no roads
The world is full of ghosts

It's my life or yours
It's my life or yours
All I'll ever do is hurt you

Abandoned
Stranded
Betrayed
With friends like these, I need my enemies

Dissected
Neglected
Erased
With friends like these, I need my enemies

Abandoned
Stranded
Betrayed
With friends like these, I need my enemies

Dissected

With friends like these
I need my enemies
I need my enemies
I need my enemies

These days of rage have left their stain on me

It comes down to this
Your face, my first

It comes down to my life or yours
My life or yours
All I'll ever do is hurt you

Stay away
Stay away
Stay
Stay away
Stay away
Stay

Stay away
Stay away
Break

These chains that bury me
Enemy
Bury me

Stay away
Stay away
Stay
Stay away
Stay away
Stay

Stay the fuck away
Stay the fuck away
