Badlands

1 – Badlands (Instrumental)

2 – Demons’

I can feel them deep within, crawling underneath my skin. Trapped inside my mind, running out of time.
Losing my mind? Stuck behind this peace I cannot find, I’m losing my mind.
They hold my hands over the fire and I burn everything I touch.
How can you hide from what’s inside? I can feel them running up and down my spine.
Demons in my head, I got demons in my bed. I can feel them breathing down my neck.
All these demons inside me, everything I do and see. Jesus save me, save me.
All my demons give me reasons to kill myself, the devil’s riding shotgun straight to hell. Just one last hit and I’m lit dragging my soul down to the pit. No matter how deep I’m in, you save me from my sin.
They hold my hands over the fire and I burn everything I touch.
I feel like I’ve been chasing the wind. How can you forgive me after what I did?
Demons in my head, I got demons in my bed. I can feel them breathing down my neck.
All these demons inside me, everything I do and see. Jesus save me, save me.
Tap, tap, tap, on my window pane the devil visited me the other day
I know myself all too well same old hell, just a different devil.
I can feel this hate building up in me, my thieving hands are so greedy. Dead inside this rotten mind, too many sins to hide. I know myself all too well, same old hell just a different devil.
Demons in my head, I got demons in my bed. I can feel them breathing down my neck. All these demons inside me, everything I do and see. Jesus save me, save me.

3 – Slow Burn

Slow burn
How much am I worth because I’m spent.
We take and take until there’s nothing left.
We follow blindly and we follow it well, down a fool’s path straight to hell.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Slow burn, to your demise. The fire still burns as you spread your lies.
Force fed, and starved to death. As we choke on our lies the innocent die.
Slow burn
I swear that this world is cold, obey what they say and do what you’re told.
I swear that this world is cold, believe what they say and do what you’re told.
Life with no meaning and death with no cause, integrity is gone and virtue is lost.
They offer you their hand and rob you blind, if you can’t keep up you’ll be left behind.
I swear this world is cold, obey what they say and do what you’re told.
Slow burn, to your demise. The fire still burns as you spread your lies.
Force fed, and starved to death. As we choke on our lies the innocent die.
Slow burn
How much am I worth because I’m spent, we take and take until there’s nothing left.
I swear that this world is cold, obey what they say and do what you’re told.

4- Outcast

Sick and tired, I’m at the end of my rope. Every word we say is held under a microscope.
If freedom and equality is what you believe, practice what you preach.
Why are we the outcast?
Pick apart our lives and what we believe, I guess I’m just “bigot” with my heart on my sleeve.
I’m expected to accept your American dream.
Perpetuate all this hate, you say that I’m wrong and I don’t belong, made an outcast because of my faith.
You expect respect with your hands around my neck. Every day this noose gets tighter and tighter.
Dragging these chains until they break, no one’s free unless we change.
We drag the same chains we feel the same pain.
Made an outcast because of my faith, I’m sick of living in a world of hate.
We drag the same chains we feel the same pain.
If we’re all equal why is God the problem, not the people?
Maybe we’re both to blame, we all suffer the same.
And we’re sinking deeper and deeper.
Dragging these chains until they break, no one’s free unless we change.
We drag the same chains we feel the same pain.
Made an outcast because of my faith, I’m sick of living in a world of hate.
We drag the same chains we feel the same pain.
Just grow up, we don’t share the same beliefs but we deserve the same love.
I’m sick and tired of all this pain we drag these chains until they break.
So let’s dig a grave and put hate back into its place.
Dragging these chains until they break, I’m sick and tired of all this hate.
If freedom and equality is what you believe, practice what you preach.
Why are we the outcast?
I won’t be an outcast.

5 – Worthless

I know it’s hard to see the diamonds hiding in your soul.
Tomorrow has enough sorrow of its own. I know this road is tough, but you are never alone.
Truth is hard to swallow, when your heart is hollow.
How do you hold your ground when everyone around wants to bury you beneath it.
Hope can still be found. Turn it all around, even if you don’t believe it.
I have felt what you feel. I have been where you are.
What doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger.
Truth is hard to swallow when your heart is hollow.
My heavy heart keeps dragging me down.
Understand this, you’re not worthless.
You’re not worthless.
I know your pain, I felt it everyday.
What doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger.
Hope can still be found. Turn it all around, even if you don’t believe it.
Understand this, you’re not worthless.
I know your pain, I felt it everyday.
What doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger.
How do you hold your ground when everyone around wants to bury you beneath it?
Hope can still be found. Turn it all around, even if you don’t believe it.

6 – Shades of Gray

Slave to the grave death is the debt we all must pay.
I’m sick of living in shades of gray.
I don’t expect you to forgive me. I don’t deserve it, and I’m not worth it.
Save me from this hell that I brought upon myself.
Everything’s the same, and I’m the one to blame; ashamed of myself every single day.
I can’t do this on my own.
Slave to the grave death is the debt we all must pay.
I’m sick of living in shades of gray.
Where do I start to look for forgiveness? Can you really save me, if I really mean this?
Save me from this hell, that I brought upon myself.
Everything’s the same, and I’m the one to blame; ashamed of myself every single day.
I can’t do this on my own.
Slave to the grave death is the debt we all must pay.
Save me from this hell that I brought upon myself.

7 – Downcast Eyes

You were always looking down on me.
How could you turn your back on family?
How could you do this to me?
I can’t believe the words coming out of your mouth.
I though that I could trust. You filled my heart with doubt.
Well it’s all over now.
After all these years that I looked up to you, but you were only looking down on me.
You were looking down on me.
You turned your back on me. Eyes wide open but you still can’t see.
You turned your back on me. You’re the epitome of hypocrisy.
How could you do this to me?
This is where it begins. Forgot our blessings and counted our sins.
I believed all your lies. Your downcast eyes make me wanna die.
You turned your back on me. Eyes wide open but you still can’t see.
You turned your back on me. You’re the epitome of hypocrisy.
How could you do this to me?
You meant so much to me. My flesh and blood turned his back on me.
You’re recklessness is driving me crazy. You’re the epitome of hypocrisy.
You turned your back on me. Eyes wide open but you still can’t see.
You turned your back on me. You’re the epitome of hypocrisy.
How could you do this to me?
You turned your back on me. Eyes wide open but you still can’t see.
You turned your back on me. So you say that I’m going to hell – I guess I’ll see you there.
After all these years that I looked up to you,
no matter what you put me through,
I will always forgive you.

8 – Insomnia

I want to know where you hide, when our hearts and hurt collide.
It keeps me up at night, fast asleep watching the world just pass me by.
I don’t understand why – for the past 12 weeks I’ve been talking in my sleep saying “God please save me”.
Am I asleep or am I dead? Praying to you at the foot of my bed.
Trying to figure out what your plans were, so many questions that will never be answered.
Why did my best friend lose his faith? Maybe he never had it in the first place?
Why do the children have to suffer, while I sit here in comfort?
Why do I have to watch my father die? Too many thoughts running through my mind.
Why do we do this to ourselves? We search for heaven while creating hell.
I want to know where you hide, when our hearts and hurt collide.
It keeps me up at night, fast asleep watching the world just pass me by.
I don’t mean to question your place. but another kid killed himself today.
Were you there? Are you there? Did you feel his pain?
Wide awake and wondering why – why don’t you hear their prayers instead of mine?
Complacent hearts tear us apart, was this your plan from the very start?
I know this all happens for a reason. He dwells in a place where there are no seasons.
When we return, we learn that grace isn’t fleeting
It just seems silent when nobody’s listening.
I want to know where you hide, when our hearts and hurt collide.
It keeps me up at night, fast asleep watching the world just pass me by.

9 – Recoil

Just as you got it all figured out, what goes around comes back around.
Spit words like bullets into the back of their mind, swung full circle and left behind.
We all must reap what we have sown, we all must know, but we act like we don’t.
Actions and consequence, how we treat each other doesn’t make any sense.
Making others feel our pain, expect to feel the same. As we all die in vain.
I will get what I deserve, get back the pain that I served. Held down by the weight of the world.
Just as you got it all figured out you’re dead wrong, my pain is your favorite song.
If you cheat you’re gonna get cheated. Treat others as you want to be treated.
Take back the things you say, step back from yesterday.
Treat a man like a dog and he’ll act like one, kick a man like a dog and he’ll bite back like one.
If words have power to kill, they must have the power to heal.

10 – Nicotine

You told me, it’s better to burn out than fade away. You struck a match and I watched you burn.
Why can’t you see what you do to me? Why can’t you stay?
As I watched you burn I learn that life’s not fair and that no one cares, or maybe that’s just what it seems like when every night I feel the pain that I’ll have to say goodbye.
You told me, it’s better to burn out than fade away. You struck a match and I watched you burn.
Why can’t you see what you do to me? Why can’t you stay with me?
Terrified of what’s to come. I’m just another fatherless son. Father, what have you done?
I know I could have been a better son.
You left but you’re not done with me. It’s better to burn out than fade away.
Light it up, burn it down from the inside out.
You won’t feel a thing when you hit the ground.
Burn it, burn it down. Watch me drown.
I can’t fake this, take this so burn it down.
You told me, it’s better to burn out than fade away. You struck a match and I watched you burn.
Why can’t you see what you do to me? Why can’t you stay with me?
Well some say that there’s an abandoned church in Hell that never burns down.
Rest in peace said the preacher as he fed my father to the ground.
Thinking of all my past regrets.
Sometimes I burn a cigarette and close my eyes, and pretend that you’re still hear.
Where do I go from here, when you disappear. You’re gone, gone, gone.
All of the things I should have done, I could have been a better son.
Forgive me father for what I’ve done.
