Chasing Death

Album: Repentless (2015)
  • 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

    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

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

    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

    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 throne
    Control is a discipline even when
    Frustration just stands in your way
    The throes of insanity feel just like a war inside you everyday

    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 throne
    Control is a discipline even when
    Frustration just stands in your way
    The throes of insanity feel just like
    A war inside you everyday

    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 welling
    Please just take away this feeling
    You know that pain in your head
    Won't stop until the desperation ends

    You've found yourself chasing death
    Oblivious until the end
    You'll never stop until you're dead

    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 Writer/s: JEFF HANNEMAN, KERRY KING, TOMAS E. ARAYA
