lyrics

On this path,
You're headed for hell.
The ghosts all around us
Are ready to kill.

Watch your back
Cause you're all alone.
I'm on my own now
And everyone knows

You're never worth a minute
Of my precious time
You're always in it to win it all
When it's all mine

Give back what you wasted of my life!

Look around you,
And tell me what you see.
Tell me you're perfect,
Perfect for me!

Be careful, don't fall
Through the cracks down below
You'll never know (never know)
What it's like to have hope.

Lies never heal the pain.
So board your ship,
Your hall of shame.
And sail away

Get away!

Life is a lie!
Life is a lie!
What is a life if you've
Always deserved to die?
But who am I to judge?
I was never enough in your eyes.

You're so quick to give up,
So quick to hold a grudge.

On this path,
You're headed for hell.
The ghosts all around us
Are ready to kill.

Watch your back
Cause you're all alone.
I'm on my own now
And everyone knows.

Wash your hands
Clean of the guilt.
The guilt that your built on,
The king of your hill.

Your sleight of hand
Is useless with me.
I know all your tricks,
And the ground beneath your feet!

It means nothing to me!
This life's like a broken record
Repeating repeating the scene
Where you left me at sea

I'm drowning tonight
slowly losing sight
But I've gotta keep in mind
That when I'm gone it'll be alright

On this path,
You're headed for hell.
The ghosts all around us
Are ready to kill.

Watch your back
Cause you're all alone.
I'm on my own now
And everyone knows.

They're all out to get you
They crave a machine
Where passion is lacking
And death has no means

Your heartless desires
Are over! (It's over!)
Your future's crumbled inside your hands.
