SCAPEGOAT


I am face to face with the bodies
With all the victims under the floor
I cannot push my way through the stones
Weighing me down
Because all the vultures gather to eat some more

It's an irrefutable truth
Because I was once just like you
But you all needed a martyr
So you made me the monster
To be your savior

SCAPEGOAT

Don't you dare believe the hype
That I was the archetype
The architect of doomsday
Because you know just what they say

There's a devil on my shoulder
The left hand path is so much colder
It's lined with skulls and fucking ravens
I answer only to myself
My own choices led me to this hell
I'd rather be here than rule in Heaven

I am eye to eye with the body
But I do not recognize my face
This crown of thorns is ripping my skin
The spear that kills
And crucifixion nails hold me into the grave

It's an irrefutable lie
To think I was once inside
The heart of man like a martyr
So you made me the monster
To be your savior

Don't you dare believe the hype
That I was the archetype
The architect of doomsday
Because you know just what they say

There's a devil on my shoulder
The left hand path is so much colder
It's lined with skulls and fucking ravens
I answer only to myself
My own choices led me to this hell
I'd rather be here than rule in Heaven

You can beat me down
But I will never break
I've an ax to grind

COME AND FUCKING GET SOME

It's an irrefutable truth
That I was never like you
You will not make me your martyr
So you made me the monster
To be your savior

Don't you dare believe the hype
That I was the archetype

Because you know just what they say

There's a devil on my shoulder
The left hand path is so much colder
It's lined with skulls and fucking ravens
I answer only to myself
My own choices led me to this hell
I'd rather be here than rule in Heaven

YOU CAN'T BEAT ME DOWN
CAUSE I WILL NOT BREAK
I'VE AN AX TO GRIND

COME AND FUCKING GET SOME
