In Your Shadow
I'm biting my tongue again, always ignored
Maybe it's a blessing in disguise
Settled for second best, no reward
And I wasn't one to steal the spotlight

I want what is mine
Here's where I draw the line

Don't speak, breathe or say a word, that's life in your shadow
Don't speak, breathe or say a word, that's life in your shadow

Always right by your side, never was fair
How you kept me out of the picture
I missed my chance to shine, not that you care
I've proven I'm the better actor now

I want what is mine
Here's where I draw the line

Don't speak, breathe or say a word, that's life in your shadow
Don't speak, breathe or say a word, that's life in your shadow

I wanted to be heard
I wanted to be
I wanted to be seen
But I, was in your shadow

I'm barely clinging to
My last thread of sanity
This I swear to you
No longer will you silence me

Standing on the sidelines
Knowing all along the glory should be mine
One chance to outshine
And now it seems I'm running out of time
As envy turns to violence
One last attempt to gain what should be mine

Don't speak, breathe or say a word, that's life in your shadow
Don't speak, breathe or say a word, that's life in your shadow
Don't speak, breathe or say a word, that's life in your shadow
Don't speak, breathe or say a word, that's life in your shadow
 
 
Hexed
Your perceptions of me are misguided
Well I think it was time you were enlightened

Try looking again with an open mind
You'll find I'm so much more
You say you've already stated your opinion
The voice of prejudice wins in the end

No, I, will not listen, your opinion, one sided, close-minded, a predetermined lie

Why can't you believe a different point of view?
Or should I be biased just like you

Try looking again with an open mind
You'll find I'm so much more
You say you've already stated your opinion
The voice of prejudice wins in the end

Now I'm, laughing at your ignorance, now I'm:
Now I'm, moving past intolerance

No, I, will not listen, your opinion, one sided, close-minded, a predetermined lie

Why can't you come to terms with the truth?
I am the same if not better than you

Try looking again with an open mind
You'll find I'm so much more
You say you've already stated your opinion
The voice of prejudice wins in the end
Mindset firm on your preconceived flawed decision
The voice of prejudice wins in the end
Once again, prejudice wins
 
 
Evils Rising
Just beneath the surface in every man lies a beast
A sleeping demon stirred quite easily knows no peace

Out of the blue the clarity fades away
The animal starts to wake
Every resemblance of a man is torn away
Say the wrong thing, press my buttons and we're on our way

The rage is growing
A primal instinct
Can't stop my hands shaking
Evil's rising

With a scream so fierce all I know is I see red
A shadow of my former self overflowing with hatred

Out of the blue the clarity fades away
The animal starts to wake
Every resemblance of a man is torn away
Say the wrong thing, press my buttons and we're on our way

The rage is growing
A primal instinct
Can't stop my hands shaking
Evil's rising

I can see the fear taking hold of you
No longer the person you once knew

A restless presence once thought dormant is now unleashed
The horrible thought that I may go too far is guaranteed

Out of the blue the clarity fades away
The animal starts to wake
Every resemblance of a man is torn away
Say the wrong thing, press my buttons and we're on our way

The rage is growing
A primal instinct
Can't stop my hands shaking
Evil's rising
The rage is growing
A primal instinct
Can't stop my hands shaking
Evil's rising

I can see the fear taking hold of you
No longer the person you once knew
 
 
Devils on Both Sides
Don't hate me
Instead step back and see
Or try looking
Through my eyes
No halos, no wings to fly
A faded rainbow lost in time

Just another shining example
Of what not to say
I don't understand quite what happened
I never planned it out this way

I'm not a sinner, just my conscience, doesn't seem to serve me well
My temper, and my violence; really what is there to tell?

Don't hate me, you're in for one hell of a ride, don't hate me
God save me, I've got devils on both sides, God save me
Don't hate me, you're in for one hell of a ride, don't hate me
Got devils on both sides

I'm not one for conversation
In fact I hate about everyone
A product of my own frustration
Just look at what I've become

I'm not a sinner, just my conscience, doesn't seem to serve me well
My temper, and my violence; really what is there to tell?

No control

I'm not a sinner, just my conscience, doesn't seem to serve me well
My temper, and my violence; really what is there to tell?

Don't hate me, you're in for one hell of a ride, don't hate me
God save me, I've got devils on both sides, God save me
Don't hate me, you're in for one hell of a ride, don't hate me
God save me, I've got devils on both sides, God save me
Devil's on both sides
 
 
Last Battalion
In the dead of night beneath pale moonlight
In a field filled with fear and wonder
Lies a troubled place where souls are displaced
And the air is so cold and somber

Each night they rise again to fight once more
Ghastly soldiers of the civil war

Sounds of crashing steel earthly battlefield
Behold a scene that will make you shudder

Lost in between
Why can't they see their war is over?
Hard to believe
If they don't bleed how do they really know?

Each night they rise again to fight once more
Ghastly soldiers of the civil war

Just before dawn breaks comes the final wave
The last battalion's vain endeavor

Lost in between
Why can't they see their war is over?
Hard to believe
If they don't bleed how do they really know?

Each night they rise again to fight once more
Ghastly soldiers of the civil war

One by one they fade back beyond the grave
Shrieking screams that will make you shiver

Lost in between
Why can't they see their war is over?
Hard to believe
If they don't bleed how do they really know?
How do they really know?
 
 
Back to the Beginning
Don't hate me
Instead step back and see
Or try looking
Through my eyes
No halos, no wings to fly
A faded rainbow lost in time

Just another shining example
Of what not to say
I don't understand quite what happened
I never planned t out this way

I'm not a sinner, just my conscience, doesn't seem to serve me well
My temper, and my violence; really what is there to tell?

Don't hate me, you're in for one hell of a ride, don't hate me
God save me, I've got devils on both sides, God save me
Don't hate me, you're in for one hell of a ride, don't hate me
Got devils on both sides

I'm not one for conversation
In fact I have about everyone
A product of my own frustration
Just look at what I've become

I'm not a sinner, just my conscience, doesn't seem to serve me well
My temper, and my violence; really what is there to tell?

No control

I'm not a sinner, just my conscience, doesn't seem to serve me well
My temper, and my violence; really what is there to tell?

Don't hate me, you're in for one hell of a ride, don't hate me
God save me, I've got devils on both sides, God save me
Don't hate me, you're in for one hell of a ride, don't hate me
God save me, I've got devils on both sides, God save me
Got devils on both sides
 
 
Voice of Prejudice
Your perceptions of me are misguided

Spellbound
A born lair, a nymphomaniac and man-hater

With a tongue made of pure evil
You found a way to twist the truth
And I was led astray by desire

Jet-black hair, blood red lips and seductive stare

With hallow words you fed my ego
As I slipped into your noose
With each smile your grip grew tighter

Coated eyes, with portraits you've been painting
Textured views, Images forever tainted, forever jaded
Well disguised, were your true intentions
Your designs, were spiteful and malicious, simply vicious

Dark whispers flood my mind, entranced, so it begins
Bewildered by her charms, I find I'm spellbound again

Dark whispers flood my mind, entranced, so it begins
Bewildered by her charms, I find I'm spellbound again

So beautiful, the temptation's beyond my control

First she loves then she hates me
Gets her kicks from being cruel
Still I'm drawn to her fire
Yes she drives me crazy
And I've only myself to save me
 
 
Dead-Eye Stare
Begging me, to offer an excuse to stay
I should speak for some reason I won't
Dead-eye stare, is all you'll ever get out of me
I should care, but somehow I don't, no I don't

I know my last chance is wasted
So why the hell won't you leave?

I'm tired of playing games going or staying the house always wins
Everytime I'm your pawn just stringing me along and it's your move again
But this time the cards are in my hands
And I'm not buying in to let you trick me again

I know my last chance is wasted
So why the hell won't you leave?

I've so much to say yet no words are forming at this time
Why is it so hard telling you goodbye
Dead-eye stare, your falling tears have no effect on me
I should care, no not this time

I'm tired of playing games going or staying the house always wins
Everytime I'm your pawn just stringing me along and it's your move again
But this time the cards are in my hands
And I'm not buying in to let you trick me again

I know my last chance is wasted
So why the hell won't you leave?

There it is, all my cards are layed out on the table
I called your bluff and now it's time to go
Dead-eye stare, a shocked look I see in your eyes
You'd never have guessed well now you know
Now you know

The harder you try, the less I sympathize; and I've heard it all before
You're giving that look, that worked once so well, but you face just leaves me cold

I know my last chance is wasted
So why the hell won't you leave?

One more chance, for me to change my mind you're waiting
On second thought I think I might
Dead-eye stare, I'll get through this if I keep my mouth shut
I should care, no not tonight

Dead-eye stare, waiting for me to change my mind
Dead-eye stare, no not this time
I know my last chance is wasted
Why the hell won't you leave?
 
 
Vigilante
Can you feel it? So cold...
From what I've heard it's served better that way

I like to think of myself as divine, a kind of reaper
A modern day hero of sorts, sent from above to deliver the word
Unto you I bestow, the greatest gift that'll your soul
From the light you have strayed, well back you go, let me show you the way

Swift justice is served
And so well deserved
All your sins, I'll erase, and there will be no more pain

From inside you've sensed my coming
That awful feeling over your shoulder

I've got a personal message from the deceased, non-believer
A handful of promises to fulfill and the mentality to kill at will
I'll make it as quick as I can, that's how dedicated I am
Willing to take the extra step on behalf of the mourning, widowed and bereft

Swift justice is served
And so well deserved
All your sins, I'll erase, and there will be no more pain

From inside you've sensed my coming
That awful feeling over your shoulder
Through my eyes the view is sickening
Come face to face with a vigilante

You won't know me
But you will see
The light
And I will lead you away

Swift justice is served
And so well deserved
All your sins, I'll erase, and there will be no more pain

From inside you've sensed my coming
That awful feeling over your shoulder
Through my eyes the view is sickening
Come face to face with a vigilante
Soon you will face the vigilante
