1. Shift of Redemption
I’ve been looking for answers to questions that have no fucking answer
Staring from the bottom to the top wondering what it’s like to look down
There are truths on every side that you can only find while looking straight
What is there to say when truth leaves no satisfaction?
Snakes turn this place into a desert
Afraid to bite the hand that feeds
Out of comfort we accept a life where we have no control
The higher you climb, the farther you fall in a never ending roll
Break the neck of the one who owns your soul
Fire the warning shot to alarm the masses
Snakes turn this place into a desert
Afraid to bite the hand that feeds
Shift of redemption, consume us all
Shift of redemption, catch me when I fall
Nothing can quench the thirst of a throat that’s been stripped raw
There is nothing left to feel
But the pain will wake you like a jackal above the law
Nothing can stop the end, never see the light again

2. Live Low
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you forever
I don’t care who are, what you’ve done or what you’re gonna do
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you forever
You live by the label but never lead by example
Live life low
“You ask me how I’m doing, you ask me where I’ve been, I fake a smile and tell you everything’s alright”
What do you expect when you give up nothing and you work for nothing
No hope, no hope, no fucking handouts, no hefty rewards
We choke, we choke, we choke from the lives we make
No hope, no hope, no fucking handouts, no hefty rewards

3. Sacrifice
1, 2, 3 and you’re hittin’ the floor, 5, 6, 7 and you’re goin’ to heaven
4 and 8 can’t appreciate the scum of the earth livin’ life on the tracks
We engineer our fate with every breath and every action
The ink is fresh on my own death warrant
There is no coming back from bridges that were turned to ash
The journey home is a faded dream of a pitch black faded abyss
Life in ruins, a simple sacrifice
Life in ruins is equaled by the love we make
Life in ruins, a simple sacrifice
Life in ruins is equaled by the love we take

4. Fall Selflessly
I’ve found a certain comfort in a slow suicide
My heart is full of ash, no room for salvation
I’m not asking for a pity party, life is meant to be lost
You ask me how I’m doing, well I’m barely getting by
Cancer eats me away
