DevilDriver – Oath Of The Abyss lyrics

In these depths of desperate despair
We bring down judgment from the sky with prayers!
I drank till the waters turned whiskey rye
I drank till the waters run dry!
Don't be the one to come knocking at my door
Hell no, I won't pick you up off the floor!
Don't come here with blood in your filthy mouth
I wasn't there when the deal went south!

You sold me out
I sold myself in
I picked up the claw!
You dealt me out
I dealt myself in!
And love in NOT the law!
Not the law!

Black moon
The omen is here!
Darkness looms!
There's fear the end
Could come too soon
Pale as a ghost
What you see?
What you know?
Time to enlist...
The Oath of the Abyss!

Fuck your rapture, can't you see it's never coming!
So better watch where you place the blame, place the blame!
You left me on the inside scarred!
You're digging up the corpses, digging up graves!
Don't be the one to come knocking at my door!
Hell no, I won't pick you up off the floor!
Don't come here with blood in your filthy mouth
I wasn't there when the deal went south!

Take the Oath
The Oath of the Abyss
Take the Oath
It's time to enlist!

Time to enlist!
