1. BARBARIANS (PRAYER FOR THE BLESSED)

I am sick of being told how to feel by the old,
The decrepit, and the greedy rich
I am sick of being lied to,
Tied to a chain gang, rats on a sinking ship

Do you wanna bleed? Gonna take a knee?
Are you gonna stand up? I am, I am
Show me what you got before you start to rot
Are you fucking ready 'cause I am, I am

It's more than a warning shot
We're all barbarians, everybody say Amen
Say a prayer for the blessed as they're dying in our hands
We're all barbarians, the end is coming soon
Say a prayer for the chosen while they choke on silver spoons
Everybody say Amen...
We're gonna steal the crown right off their heads
We're all barbarians

You can bury me infected, next to the rejected,
Somewhere in the valley of tears
You can wake up with a knife as you're coming back to life
And they gut you as you're facing your fears

Do you wanna die? Are you gonna cry?
Are you gonna fight back? I am, I am
Are you gonna stop? Take it to the top?
Are you fucking ready 'cause I am, I am

It's more than a warning shot
We're all barbarians, everybody say Amen
Say a prayer for the blessed as they're dying in our hands
We're all barbarians, the end is coming soon
Say a prayer for the chosen while they choke on silver spoons
Everybody say Amen...
We're gonna steal the crown right off their heads
We're all barbarians
Barbarians

We're all barbarians, everybody say Amen
Say a prayer for the blessed as they're dying in our hands
We're all barbarians, the end is coming soon
Say a prayer for the chosen while they die with silver spoons

We're all barbarians, everybody say Amen
Say a prayer for the blessed as they're dying in our hands
We're all barbarians, the end is coming soon
Say a prayer for the chosen while they choke on silver spoons
And everybody say Amen...
We're gonna steal the crown right off their heads
We're all barbarians

We're all barbarians
We're all barbarians


2. WE WILL NOT QUIETLY

It's like a heart attack, I see the shock when you face it
We couldn't take it so we got a little wasted
I'd really love to see the look on their face
When you open your eyes, when you open your eyes

We run away, but who is gonna save us
The only people that you find are gonna slay us
I'd really love to hear the sound of your voice
When you're screaming their name, when you're screaming their name

You gotta burn it down, you gotta blow it up
You gotta give them hell, you gotta pull the plug
And you can run away, and you can kill the beast
And you can try to kill yourself, but you can never kill me

Hey! If this is how the world will end
Well you can burn it again
Cause we will not go quietly
Hey! If this is how the world will end
Well you can tell all your friends
That we will not go quietly
Not go quietly

So when you find yourself, you're in a place that you're scared of
You wake up to see a face you wouldn't dare love
They're gonna try to take the blood from your veins
When you open your eyes, when you open your eyes

We run away, but who is gonna save us
The only people that you find will betray us
They're gonna hate to hear the sound of my voice
When we're screaming their name, when we're screaming their name

You gotta burn it down, you gotta blow it up
You gotta give them hell, you gotta pull the plug
And you can run away, and you can kill the beast
And you can try to kill yourself, but you can never kill me

Hey! If this is how the world will end
Well you can burn it again
Cause we will not go quietly
Hey! If this is how the world will end
Well you can tell all your friends
That we will not go quietly
Not go quietly

Oh, we will not go quietly
Yeah

You gotta burn it down, you gotta blow it up
You gotta give them hell, you gotta pull the plug
And you can run away, and you can kill the beast
And you can try to kill yourself, but you can never kill me

Hey! If this is how the world will end
Well you can burn it again
Cause we will not go quietly
Hey! If this is how the world will end
Well you can tell all your friends
That we will not go quietly

Hey! If this is how the world will end
You can tell all your friends
That we will not go quietly
Hey! If this is how the world will end
You can burn it again
Cause we will not go quietly
Not go quietly


3. WOLF AT YOUR DOOR

You might bleed out with anger, you might blow your fragile mind
You wanna go faster, but you're running out of time
You can sink like an anchor, you can bury all the bones
You're out on a tightrope, you're out there all alone
And everything you touch is so cold

You might feel like you're dying, like you're digging your own grave
All bloodshot from crying, but the tears won't wash away
Everything is so bleak, but the sun is beating down
You think it's a murder 'cause there's bloodstains on the ground
And everything you touch is so cold

It's never too late to fall on your sword
You can't run away because the wolf is at your door
But don't be alarmed, you're not alone anymore
I'll be right by your side when the wolf is at your door
It's ok, it's alright, it's ok, it's alright

You might live with the danger, but you're dancing with the dead
You avoid medication so you're hanging by a thread
In the valley of darkness there is no promised land
I've seen my assassin, I've even held her hand
And everyone you touch is so cold

It's never too late to fall on your sword
You can't run away because the wolf is at your door
But don't be alarmed, you're not alone anymore
I'll be right by your side when the wolf is at your door

It's never too late to fall on your sword
You can't run away because the wolf is at your door
But don't be alarmed, you're not alone anymore
I'll be right by your side when the wolf is at your door

It's never too late to fall on your sword
You can't run away because the wolf is at your door
But don't be alarmed, you're not alone anymore
I'll be right by your side when the wolf is at your door
It's ok, it's alright, it's ok, it's alright


4. MAYBE IT'S TIME

All the scars, all the lines
On my face they show the times
I've abandoned my own life
I can't breathe, I can't eat
So I just drink myself to sleep
And embrace this morbid pride

But maybe it's time to heal, maybe it's time to try
Maybe it's time to deal with all the pieces in my life
Maybe I'll sober up, maybe before I die
Maybe I'll finally deal with all the wreckage in my life

I'm older now, I'm breaking down
My regrets they turn to dust
And soon enough they'll blow away
When I was young, I was dumb
I was never strong enough
I wish I had the guts to say

Maybe it's time to heal, maybe it's time to try
Maybe it's time to deal with all the pieces in my life
Maybe I'll sober up, maybe before I die
Maybe I'll finally deal with all the wreckage in my life

And this was self-inflicted
Yeah I was on a mission
To ruin everything in life
But now I'm so damn ready
Just take my hand and steady
And we will make it through the night

Maybe it's time to heal, maybe it's time to try
Maybe it's time to deal with all the pieces in my life
Maybe I'll sober up, maybe before I die
Maybe I'll finally deal with all the wreckage in my life

Maybe it's time
Maybe it's time
Maybe it's time


5. THE DEVIL'S COMING

I don't know what's haunting me or where I'll be tomorrow
Who is running these machines with manufactured sorrow
I'll dig the grave, I'll fan the flames that burn inside of me
Woah, woah

Yeah, the devil's coming, yeah, the devil's coming
Heaven knows he's coming after me
Yeah, the devil's coming, yeah, the devil's coming
Heaven knows he's coming after me

If you haven't noticed yet, I'm an empty vessel
These are things that I regret, these are things I wrestle
I'm in chains, I can't explain, I question everything
Woah, woah

Yeah, the devil's coming, yeah, the devil's coming
Heaven knows he's coming after me
Yeah, the devil's coming, yeah, the devil's coming
Heaven knows he's coming after me
Woah, woah

Yeah, the devil's coming, yeah, the devil's coming
Heaven knows he's coming after me
Yeah, the devil's coming, yeah, the devil's coming
Heaven knows he's coming after me

Yeah, the devil's coming, yeah, the devil's coming
Heaven knows he's coming after me


6. CATACOMBS

(instrumental)


7. THAT'S GONNA LEAVE A SCARE

I'm stressed out, I'm punctured
This is how it feels when you lose a war
You got a death wish, you got a Bible
And a lie that makes you beg for more

And every time I turn and kill my heart it's just to feel numb
And every time you dig into my skin it's like you smell blood

And that's gonna leave scar
My heart is shattered, you cut like a dagger
That's gonna leave a scar
It's no laughing matter, and you don't care that
That's gonna leave a, that's gonna leave a scar

I'm lifeless, I'm derailed
I'm blown up like an atomic bomb
You're a vector, I'm infected
And hell's gonna damn the road you're on

And every time I turn and kill my heart it's just to feel numb
And every time you dig into my skin it's like you smell blood

And that's gonna leave scar
My heart is shattered, you cut like a dagger
That's gonna leave a scar
It's no laughing matter, and you don't care that
That's gonna leave a, that's gonna leave a scar

And that's gonna leave scar
My heart is shattered, you cut like a dagger
That's gonna leave a scar
It's no laughing matter, and you don't care that

That's gonna leave a scar
My heart is shattered, you cut like a dagger
That's gonna leave a scar
It's no laughing matter, and you don't care that
That's gonna leave a, that's gonna leave a scar


8. WITHOUT YOU (BADFINGER COVER)

No, I can't forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way this story goes
You always smile, but in your eyes the sorrow shows
Yeah, it shows

Oh, I can't forget tomorrow
Cause I think of all the sorrow
I had you here, but then I let you go
And now it's only fair that I should let you know
What you should know

I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore
I can't live, if living is without you
I can't give, I can't give anymore

No, I can't forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way the story goes
You always smile, but in your eyes the sorrow shows
It shows

I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore
I can't live, if living is without you
I can't give, I can't give anymore

I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore
I can't live, if living is without you
I can't give, I can't give anymore

I can't live, yeah, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore
I can't live, if living is without you
I can't give, I can't give anymore


9 SUFFOCATE

We never dropped the anchor, we only held it off the side
While you prayed our ship was calling, I knew the wind already died
Sometimes the undertow feels like the tide
Sometimes the brutal truth, it cuts you like a knife

I was suffocated where I stand
But I'm not just the shadow of a man

You never asked for nothing, I only wish you would've begged
While the life through our window fed like flies on the dead
Sometimes adrenaline is the only way that we survived
And sometimes the bleakest days are the only place to hide

I was suffocated where I stand
But I'm not just the shadow of a man

Get away from the off-white picket fence
How long will you wake up to the dead
Hold on, hold on, she said
Hold on, hold on, she said

I'm just a dreadful vampire
Sitting on this crumbling empire
I dissolve and melt and crack
And I'm the one that won't come back

You can't ever smile, you can't ever breathe
You can't have my child if you're pregnant with me
You can't have a soul and you just can't let it be

Well sometimes the undertow, it feels like the tide
Sometimes the brutal truth, it cuts you like a knife
Sometimes you pray that someone throws you a line
Cause you can't live if you're suffocating


10. RIOT IN MY HEAD

There he lies all curled up in a pool of blood
I look down at what is left of jealous love
You should have seen this coming when you chose him over me
Now I am the one to blame, but I,
I will plead that I'm insane

Cause there's a riot in my head
No way of ever coming back
It was a momentary lapse
There was a riot in my head
And I might as well be dead
I might as well be left for good and dead

I look back at all those burning summer nights
When you said you'd love me 'til the end of time
Even though I pulled the trigger,
You're the one who just blew out his brains
You're the one to blame, I, I'll just plead that I'm insane

Cause there's a riot in my head
No way of ever coming back
It was a momentary lapse
Now there's a riot in my head
And I might as well be dead
I might as well be dead

No matter what you need
Don't shed a tear for me
Cause this was worth it

No matter what you need
I got revenge, my dear
So this was worth it

There's a riot in my head
No way of ever coming back
It was a momentary lapse
Now there's a riot in my head
No way of ever coming back
It was a momentary lapse
Now there's a riot in my head


11. HELICOPTERS

Helicopters fly above my head like hummingbirds
Love thou neighbor, I think that's what you said
At least that's what I heard

I've got Jesus breathing down my neck
And angels gather like crows
You see you left me here all alone to suffer
Why'd you have to go

I wish that I could hold you
And say the things I never told you
And if I could, I'd bring you back to life
For one more chance, just you and I
To watch the stars fall from the sky
I wish we never had to say goodbye

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye

I wish that I could hold you
And say the things I never told you
And if I could, I'd bring you back to life
For one more chance, just you and I
To watch the stars fall from the sky
I wish we never had to say goodbye
