Lyrics

Diamond Halo

Written By: © Nick Neilson (BMI) -- Fools Paradise

You look so nice in your diamond halo.
Came from the sky as bright as a rainbow.
The light in your eyes, you're a storybook fable.
Take off your disguise, if you think that you're able to rise. Rise.

It's cold and it's summer,
it's your spell that we're under.
It's clear what you're after,
the end holds the answer.
The sky's growing blacker, the years roll by faster.
Unable to master this spell of disaster, is you.

I know, We know, where you'll take our souls.
I've heard your lies, all your alibis.
I've heard your plans, all the schemes you've had.
I've seen your tears, in people through the years.

I know, We know, you won't take our souls easy.
Easy. Easy came easy for you,
but there's one thing that you'll never do.
I'll take you away in my mind, for the end of time.

War

Written By: Nick Neilson (BMI) -- Fools Paradise

Teach about war and peace,
But they never thought to practice what they preach.
Lies, they tell in every size.
Man they’re gonna get you before you realize.

That it’s war, it’s what they’re looking for.
Peace, they push it out of reach.
Crime, they’ll never do the time.
Man they’re gonna get you and eat you alive
‘cause it’s WAR!

Greed, we’ll man, it’s all you need.
Come and climb aboard, we’ll make you part of the team.
More... it’s what we’ve got in store.
Come and make a profit while you even the score.

It’s a cold bloody business, but the money is good
and you never have to do the things you that you should.
Better mind you manners and stay out of the way,
‘cause they’re gonna come and get you and they’ll blow you away
‘cause it’s WAR!

It’s what they’re looking for.
Peace, they push it out of reach.
Crime, they’ll never do the time.
Man they’re gonna get you and eat you alive...
Cause it’s WAR!

War, it’s what they’re looking for.
Peace, they push it out of reach.
Crime, they never do the time.
Gonna come get you and eat you alive
‘cause it’s WAR!

Teach about war and peace,
But they never thought to practice what they preach.
Lies, they tell in every size.
Man they’ll put a bullet right between your eyes.

War! It’s what they’re looking for.
Peace, push it out of reach.
Crime, never do the time.
Man they’re gonna get you and eat you alive...
‘Cause it’s WAR!

Wasted Years

Written By: Nick Neilson (BMI) -- Fools Paradise

I can hear the raging thunder,
I can tell end is near.
Can’t you feel we’re drifting under?
Time of judgment day is here.

Wake me from my endless slumber,
I’ve been here a thousand years.
When they finally call your number,
you’ll have to stand and face your fears of wasted years.

Wasted Years. Wasted Years.

Take me from this devil’s garden,
take me far away from here.
Bring me back to when we started,
so I can wipe away the tears.
Memories of a life forgotten,
slowly start to reappear.
Voices of the long departed,
whisper softly in my ear.

Stand in the light!
Answer for your sins tonight!
All the life that you were given,
your misdeeds are not forgiven!
All the time that you have wasted,
Now you’ll find you’ve been forsaken...
Wasted Years! Wasted Years!

I can hear the raging thunder,
I can tell end is here.
Can’t you feel we’re drifting under?
Time of judgment day is here.

Wasted Years! Wasted Years! Wasted Years!

Hit Man

Written By: Nick Neilson (BMI) -- Fools Paradise

I lost my way, so long ago it’s a wonder that I’m not dead.
And far away, that’s where she’s waiting for me, or at least that’s what she said.
I sold my soul for next to nothing, gun is loaded... I’m ready to go.
I’d like to show, how much I love you, but there’s something that you just gotta know.

CHORUS
I’m a hit man! They pay me money and I’ll put a bullet straight through your head.
I’m a hit Man. I’m gonna get you when you’re lying sound asleep in your bed.

You’ll never know, just when I’m coming, maybe I’ll just knock at your door.
One thing for sure, when it’s all over... they’ll find you lying dead on the floor.
Don’t pray for me or my redemption, I’m a powder keg that’s ready to burn.
And can’t you see, that I’m a liar I’m a lesson you don’t want learn.

CHORUS
I’m a hit man! They pay me money and I’ll put a bullet straight through your head.
I’m a hit man. You see me coming and you better run as fast as you can.

Lead Break

I lost my way, so long ago. And Baby, ain’t it a God damn shame.
And far away, that’s where she’s waiting for me, soaking up the sun in L.A.
Sold my soul for a fist full of money, gun is loaded and I’m ready to go.
I’d like to show how much I love you, but there’s something that you just gotta know.

CHORUS
I’m a hit man! They pay me money and I’ll put a bullet straight through your head.
I’m a hit Man. I’m gonna get you when you’re lying sound asleep in your bed.

End of Days

Written By: © Nick Neilson (BMI) -- Fools Paradise

He came without a warning, from the heavenly stars above.
To share his infinite glory, he shining as bright as the sun.
He came to gather the people, the lion to lay with the lamb.
To separate good from evil, was only just part of his plan.

CHORUS
He knew. He knew just what to do. To lead us all a stray.
Said he’d light our way, and take away our pain.

Oh, the people loved him. The diamond in his eyes.
No other gods above him, the one we prophesized.
His love, it turned to violence. It fell to earth like rain.
We all suffered in silence... it was the end of days.

CHORUS
He knew. He knew just what to do. To lead us all a stray.
Said he’d light our way, he came and he took our souls away.

CHANGE
The sky was open. The angel’s wings were broken.
He took us all away. It was the End of Days!

He came without a warning, from the heavenly stars above.
To share his infinite glory, he shined as bright as the sun.

He knew. He knew just what to do. To lead us all a stray.
Said he’d light our way, and take away…

He knew, the love we had was true. And on our knees we prayed,
but while we slept he came and took our souls away.
