  • Hey kid (hey kid)
    Do I have your attention?
    I know the way you've been living
    Life's so reckless, tragedy endless
    Welcome to the family

    Hey
    There's something missing
    Only time will alter your vision
    Never in question, lethal injection
    Welcome to the family

    Not long ago you find the answers were so crystal clear
    Within a day you find yourself living in constant fear
    Can you look at yourself now, can you look at yourself?
    You can't win this fight

    In a way it seems there's no one to call
    When our thoughts are so numb
    And our feelings unsure
    We all have emptiness inside, we all have answers to find
    But you can't win this fight

    Hey kid (hey kid)
    I have to question
    What's with the violent aggression
    Details blurry, lost him too early
    Welcome to the family

    Hey
    Why won't you listen?
    Can't help the people you're missing
    It's been done, a casualty rerun
    Welcome to the family

    I try and help you with the things that can't be justified
    I need to warn you that there is no way to rationalize
    So have you figured it out now, so have you figured it out?
    You can't win this fight

    And in a way it seems there's no one to call
    When our thoughts are so numb
    And our feelings unsure
    We all have emptiness inside, we all have answers to find
    But you can't win this fight!

    Here for you and all mankind
    I've lost my mind
    Psychotic rounds in rabid dementia
    I won't be fine

    I see you're a king who's been dethroned
    Cast out in a world you've never know
    Stand down, place your weapon by your side
    It's our war in the end, we'll surely lose but that's alright
    So have you figured it out now, so have you figured it out?

    And in a way it seems there's no one to call
    When our thoughts are so numb
    And our feelings unsure
    We all have emptiness inside, we all have answers to find
    But you can't win this fight

    Deep inside where nothing's fine
    I've lost my mind
    You're not invited, so step aside
    I've lost my
    Deep inside where nothing's fine
    I've lost my mind
    You're not invited, so step aside
    I've lost my Writer/s: Brian Haner, James Sullivan, Jonathan Seward, Matthew Sanders, Zachary Baker

  • Tony from ChileI'm sure I watched a video on youtube where M shadows told that it was quite an easy song to write for him, 'cause the whole idea came to his mind, intro-melody, vocals and stuff.
  • Connor from British ColumbiaThis song is about the rh negative aka illuminati bloodline and its about a person being initiated into high level satanism.
