Track Name: Battleground
(lead: Aaron)
Pitch black
Nothing I can see
The voices call my name
The rain drowns the sea
It pours like a prickle or thorn
Fire burns into the earth
Lucifer is reborn

chorus:
The battle is in pursue
There's nothing I can do
The battle horn has rung
The fight has now begun
The swords, the axes, and spears
The leader disappears
The sun puts us into a trance
We will attack
It's our last chance

Fire burns and volcanoes erupt
And the night falls into day
The wind never stood so still
While the warriors protect their land from deadly beasts
They move farther from shelter
And in for the kill

chorus:
The battle is in pursue
There's nothing I can do
The battle horn has rung
The fight has now begun
The swords, the axes, and spears
The leader disappears
The sun puts us into a trance
We will attack
It's our last chance!
(lead: Jason)

final chorus:
It doesn't matter anymore
The chains are loose
I gasp for air but i am hung around this spiked noose
The blood fills my lungs and i can barely breath
I strain for my last breath,
I will never leave!
Track Name: The Witch's Spell
(lead: Jason)
A mortal dies from a witch's spell
She sentenced him straight back to hell
The witch laughed as she stirred her pot
She had unleashed her deadly plot

chorus:
She dwelled for weeks
Over the debt he owed
If it was not paid
Her mind would explode
She knew the plan
But no one she would tell
She finally cast
The witch's spell

The mortal fell to a fiery grave
He had become the devil's slave
As the witch watched him endure the pain
He knew that he would walk the earth again

chorus:
She dwelled for weeks
Over the debt he owed
If it was not paid
Her mind would explode
She knew the plan
But no one she would tell
She finally cast
The witch's spell
(lead: Aaron)
(lead: Jason)

The mortal traded his soul
To the devil for his life
A deadly vengeance
And a bloody knife
As the witch slept silently
He had killing in his head
He was successful with his revenge
The witch was dead!
(lead: Jason)
Track Name: Robits
Many years we've had machines
Taking care of all our needs but
They got sick
They got tired of
Being used and now they're wired
Only to destroy and kill
They're coming at us from down the hill
What can we do?
Is this the end,
being slaughtered by a former friend?

chorus:
Nothing!
Can stop the Robits! x4

The Robits came to enslave the Earth
Cause terror in the streets
And abort every birth
The destruction puts me into shock
The end is near,
do not run,
the Robits are here!

chorus:
Nothing!
Can stop the Robits! x4

It's about to get real robotic in here!
(lead: Aaron)

chorus:
Nothing!
Can stop the Robits! x4
Ha ha ha!
Track Name: Killed by the Cross
A lonesome choir girl
Perched on top religion
With nothing else to turn to
She must count on God's decision
So much emotion
Kept up inside
And it all stayed with her
Til the day that she died

chorus: (lead: Jason)
She was killed by the cross
She was killed by the cross
She slept all night with the words of God in her head
The chain quickly tightened
Soon she would be dead
She was killed by the cross
She was killed by the cross

She was close-minded and judgmental
She could never grow
Never taught another way
She had nowhere else to go
She always thought she was on the right track
The one thing that she never knew was religion held her back

chorus: (lead: Jason)
She was killed by the cross
She was killed by the cross
She slept all night with the words of God in her head
The chain quickly tightened
Soon she would be dead
She was killed by the cross
Killed by the cross!
(lead: Jason)
(lead: Aaron)
Track Name: Deadly Black Chain
(lead: Aaron)
As I lay in an alley
With a bottle in my hand
I'm not able to walk
I can barely stand
I'm too weak to live
Why do I try?
Oh why am I still alive?
I deserve to die

chorus:
All the sleazy people with their dirty tricks
Can't go an hour
Without getting a fix
Stuck in this prison
With no one else to blame
With my leg trapped inside
This deadly black chain

Thoughts shouting in my mind
Start to drive me insane
I can't decide which to listen to
This is another level of pain
With no one to save me in my darkest hour
I just want this to end
But I don't have the power

chorus:
All the sleazy people with their dirty tricks
Can't go an hour
Without getting a fix
Stuck in this prison
With no one else to blame
With my leg trapped inside
This deadly black chain

(lead: Jason)
(lead: Aaron)

chorus:
All the sleazy people with their dirty tricks
Can't go an hour
Without getting a fix
Stuck in this prison
With no one else to blame
With my leg trapped inside
This deadly black chain!
(lead: Aaron)
Track Name: One Way Out
Must I feel this pain?
Is it for the greater good?
Am I just a pawn in your sick plan?
It's all your fault
This life was not chosen but merely given
You have ruined a life for the final time

chorus: (lead: Aaron)
How can I make it stop?
The sorrow that consumes me
Inflict hurt on myself only to feel
Pleasure no longer exists
There's only one way out

You're the constructor of my demise
This blood is on your hands
Oh how I've tried to gain your love but to no prevail
I'd rather be gone than in your care
My hope has been dead too long to be resurrected
Resurrected

Is this it?
The end of a pitiful life fueled by hatred
And agony
Is this it?
The end of a pitiful life fueled by hatred
And agony
Is this it?
The end of a pituful life fueled by hatred
And agony!

chorus: (lead: Aaron)
How can I make it stop?
The sorrow that consumes me
Inflicted on myself only to feel
Pleasure no longer exists
There's only one way out
Goodnight to all!
