Slayer – Chasing Death lyrics
[Verse 1]
You can never truly see
Inside the ones you know
Until you've found them near
The edge of self-control
All I hear are lies
You're lying to yourself
And everything is out of control
You're just a fuckin' slave of discontent
I'm sick of watching you dig this hole

[Pre-Chorus]
Time waits for no one
Won't stop, It can't be outrun
You know that pain in your head
Won't stop 'til the desperation ends

[Chorus]
You've found yourself chasing death
Oblivious until the end
You'll never stop chasing death

[Verse 2]
Innocence, common sense, I don't see the relevance
Of anything that you've got to say
Parasite, socialite, you're never gonna win this fight
There is no fucking easy way out
No easy way out

[Verse 3]
I know I should have seen it all coming
But I had to find it out on my own
A whore to incompetence you hide behind
The shadow that once was your thrown
Control is a discipline even when
Frustration just stands in your way
The throes of insanity feel just like
A war inside you every day

[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]
I know I should have seen it all coming
But I had to find it out on my own
A whore to incompetence you hide behind
The shadow that once was your thrown
Control is a discipline even when
Frustration just stands in your way
The throes of insanity feel just like
A war inside you every day

[Pre-Chorus]
Time waits for no one
Won't stop, It can't be outrun
There's just no way of knowing
How long? Paranoia's growing
Can't stop the poison winning
Please, Just take away this feeling
You know that pain in your head
Won't stop until the desperation ends

[Chorus]
You've found yourself chasing death
Oblivious until the end
You'll never stop until death

[Outro]
Innocence, common sense, I don't see the relevance
Of anything that you've got to say
Parasite, socialite, you're never gonna win this fight
There is no fucking easy way out
No easy way out
No easy way out
No easy way out
No easy way out
