  • Death's pointed at your head
    Your mind on the trigger pull it
    Bludgeon bodies give up their muted horror story
    Scene of your rage
    Death is not strange
    Blood on the walls
    You stand alone satisfied

    I'll wake the silence in you
    I'll shoot the violence through you

    Terrified by the thought that you are all alone
    Paralyzed by the fact that you are not alone
    You're losing your mind, I'm losing control
    You're losing your mind, as I bury your world

    I'll wake the silence in you
    I'll shoot the violence through you

    I can't remember yet someone always seems to die
    You are the reason why I became the chosen one
    I've got the right
    God makes no sense
    I've got the right
    I feel my back against the wall

    Death's pointed at your head
    Your mind on the trigger pull it
    Bludgeon bodies give up their muted horror story

    Scene of my rage
    Scene of my rage
    Death is your name
    You're facing your grave

    I taste your tears caress your face
    I watch you lie insane
    Dying for love
    Praying to die

    I want what's inside you
    Dressed in your blood
    You wear it well
    Dying because I care

    Your eyes are wide but you can't see
    Rotting my lust away
    I'll shoot the violence through you
    And wake the part that's dead
    I hate the silence in you
    I want what's in your head Writer/s: JEFFERY JOHN HANNEMAN
