KICKING A DEAD HORSE

As I spiral out of control
Like a comet on its way to Hell
I fear I may not remember
Just why I fell

I canít find my WAY
Through this pile of DEAD
Just a beaten SHELL
With demons in my HEAD

wake up
cannot wake up
never wake up
from this everlasting nightmare

i LISTEN to every single word
i GIVE IN to my animosity
i WITNESS the darker half of them
they FEED ME all their infamy

I found the truth at the end of the rope
Twitching tragic verse of the death of hope
As I struggle against the rising tide
My demise is of my own design

Kicking a dead horse
Over and over again
KICKING A DEAD HORSE
TO FUCKING HELL ONCE AGAIN

I am lost from the outside in
Like a scripture sent straight from God
Downside up with thoughts dismembered
Drowned in blood

Save your empty SMILES
Your pity means SPIT
ĎCause your gifts are VILE
And tainted with SHIT

sleep now
cannot sleep now
never sleep now
in this everlasting nightmare

the DARKNESS bitter cold
i WELCOME blackest infinity
if IT MEANS that i donít need you
to DESTROY me anymore

I found the truth at the end of the rope
Twitching tragic verse of the death of hope
As I struggle against the rising tide
My demise is of my own design

Kicking a dead horse
Over and over again
KICKING A DEAD HORSE
TO FUCKING HELL ONCE AGAIN

THE BELL TOLLS
AND HERE WE GO
ONCE AGAIN

i am a puppet on a chain
alwayS dancinG tO youR tunE
Because Safety Is Just A Shadow
AND SOON I WILL BURY YOU

D E E P

WHERE THE DARKNESS WATCHES
EVERYTHING THAT YOU DO
PARASITIC MONSTERS
WAIT FOR ME AND YOU

ME
AND
YOU

I found the truth at the end of the rope
Twitching tragic verse of the death of hope
As I struggle against the rising tide
My demise is of my own design

Kicking a dead horse
Over and over again
KICKING A DEAD HORSE
TO FUCKING HELL ONCE AGAIN

THE BELL TOLLS
AND HERE WE GO
ONCE AGAIN
