Parkway Drive – Dead Man's Chest lyrics

When your lungs collapse
When your last breath fails
Upon reflection the fatal choice was yours alone
Convulsions constrict your flesh
Into a portrait of agony
Into a portrait of agony
Of agony

This, this is cataclysmic failure
As your organs refuse to prevail
This is, this is pointless suffering
How does it feel to know
You brought this shit
On yourself?

The timing of consequence
Your actions have their' price
I won't pay for your mistakes
As pity grips your nerves
You'll get what you deserve
Now brace yourself
All hell breaks
All hell breaks loose
All hell breaks loose

Fucked up, this system
Shut it down
Drowned In Disease
Staccato Bursts of blood prelude a flat line ending
Suffocation of a race
The persistent beings
Of life
