Lyrics

Adrenaline Junkie

Written By: Michael Trainor

Revvin’ it up, before I hit the gas,
Headin’ for the highway, too much too fast,
Gonna burn rubber, put pedal to the metal,
Adrenaline pumpin’, I can’t settle

I’m beatin’ every car and red light,
People beepin’, an’ wantin’ to fight,
Can’t stop now, I’m goin’ too fast,
Speed camera’s flashin’ as I go past

Adrenaline Junkie,
Speedin’ my way out of here,
Now just watch me disappear,
Adrenaline Junkie,
Down a straight long road,
My engines gonna explode

Driftin’ the corners with handbrake turns,
Leavin’ tracks behind me, as the surface burns,
Hear that engine roar, as I change the gears,
Hell, it seems like I have been drivin’ for years

I’m beatin’ every car and red light,
People beepin’, an’ wantin’ to fight,
Can’t stop now, I’m goin’ too fast,
Speed camera’s flashin’ as I go past

Adrenaline Junkie,
Speedin’ my way out of here,
Now just watch me disappear,
Adrenaline Junkie,
Down a straight long road,
My engines gonna explode
Adrenaline Junkie,
Speedin’ my way out of here,
Now just watch me disappear,
Adrenaline Junkie,
Down a straight long road,
My engine's gonna explode

Forever Feelin' This Way

Written By: Michael Trainor & Ryan Kevan

Tormented as a child,
Inside I’m fucking wild,
Clawed, scarred, locked away,
I kick and scream ‘cause baby that’s my way
Reign terror through night’s eve,
The air is thin, it’s hard to breathe,
Each child, each remain,
Brings insanity to my brain to my brain

An’ I feel this way

Forever feelin’ this way,
Forever feelin’ this way,
I’ve felt like this for too long,
You didn’t know that something’s wrong,
Forever feelin’ this way,
Forever feelin’ this way,
Someone’s gonna have to pay,
‘Cause I’ve forever been feelin’ this way

You say your shit, but you better think twice,
Your life is hanging by the roll of a dice,
You better wish, lady lucks on your side,
Or you will wash away along with the tide
The city lights, they blind my eyes,
Can’t show my face, my only disguise,
Locked up, fucked up, like a slave,
I’ll take that motherfucker to his grave

An' I feel this way

Forever feelin’ this way,
Forever feelin’ this way,
I’ve felt like this for too long,
You didn’t know that something’s wrong,
Forever feelin’ this way,
Forever feelin’ this way,
Someone’s gonna have to pay,
‘Cause I’ve forever been feelin’ this way

Forever
Forever feelin’ this way

House Of Pain

Written By: Ryan Kevan

Blackened tar, ridden vains,
Numb the anguish from my brain,
Broken reflection, all I see,
Glass cut knuckles bleeding free

Into the house of pain,
I have lost my way,
Into the house of pain,
I have lost my way

The hole inside burns hot,
Devoid of feeling, I am lost,
Callid my broken shell,
Hidden inside, I’ll never tell

Into the house of pain,
I have lost my way,
Into the house of pain,
I have lost my way

The scar is all that remains,
I am left the one who blames,
The black of night, stains me,
So dark, can’t remember how to see

Into the house of pain,
I have lost my way,
Into the house of pain,
I have lost my way

My resurrection has begun,
Renewed in blinding sun,
Life flows again through me,
Self forgiveness, salvations key

Pain,
Kick it again

Into the house of pain,
Into the house of pain,
Into the house of pain,
Into the house of pain

And it’s all so painful,
In this house of mine

In My Cell

Written By: Michael Trainor & Ryan Kevan

In My Cell,
And I’m All alone,
I’ve got all of my friends in my head,
And I’ve never felt so alive

These four walls are closing in,
And my heart is full of sin,
Wipe the blood off my grin

Straight jacket dementia,
My mind don’t know where it’s at,
Voices giving me the idea

In my cell, I can’t escape,
So I’ve made this my home,
I’m my own worst enemy,
I don’t feel so alone

I feel like I’m where I belong
In my cell,
But I won’t be here for long,
In my cell,
In my cell

I’m a psycho-analysis,
Drugged up Satan’s bliss,
Asylums reminisce

I don’t take any medication,
‘Cause I’m not god’s creation,
Through empirical observation

In my cell, I can’t escape,
So I’ve made this my home,
I’m my own worst enemy,
I don’t feel so alone

I’ve never felt so alive,
In my cell,
In here there’s no need to hide,
In my cell,

Multiple homicide,
Sixty two years inside,
Next step is suicide,
I’m on my way to death row

In my cell, I can’t escape,
So I’ve made this my home,
I’m my worst enemy,
I don’t feel so alone

I’ve never felt so alive,
In my cell

Down In The Hallows

Written By: Ryan Kevan & Michael Trainor

Going down in the hallows

Nobody knows,
But there must be a way out of here,
Down in the hallows,
There’s crying and screaming,
There’s nothing but pain and fear,
Down in the hallows

Darkness closing in,
The clouds begin to fall,
It’s almost time to begin,
Get ready for a brawl,
Every face is evil,
They don’t give you time to breathe,
Beneath the ground they lurk,
You got no chance to leave

Down in the hallows

Nobody knows,
But there must be a way out of here,
Down in the hallows,
The trees come alive and their faces cry,
Down in the hallows

Nobody has a name,
Nobody even speaks,
This is just a game,
To these circus freaks
The roots grab your limbs,
And cut you up alive,
They’ll pull you under,
No soul’s ever survived

Down in the hallows

Down in the,
Down in the,
Down in the,
Down in the hallows

Going down

How did I get here,
Am I gonna die,
Why are you doing this?,
‘Cause we’re in Satan’s bliss

Down in the hallows

XIX

Written By: Michael Trainor & Ryan Kevan

I heard the news yesterday,
Got on my knees and started to pray,
All the rumours, what’s to believe?
Don’t know the facts or how to grieve

Some say it’s accident,
And some say it’s suicide,
To lose someone like you,
It hurts me deep inside

Another tragedy,
Another broken dream,
Ashes to ashes, dust ‘til dawn,
Such a tragedy,
It’s like a bad dream,
In our hearts, your memory lives on

Cold tears that we cry,
For the loss of the young, I ask god why
Reflections of the past,
Living each day hard and fast

Some say it’s accident,
And some say it’s suicide,
To lose someone like you,
It hurts me deep inside

Another Tragedy,
Another broken dream,
Ashes to ashes, dust ‘til dawn,
Such a tragedy,
It’s like a bad dream,
In our hearts, your memory lives on

Some say it’s accident,
And some say its suicide,
To lose someone like you,
It hurts me deep inside

Another Tragedy,
Another broken dream,
Ashes to ashes, dust ‘til dawn,
Such a tragedy,
It’s like a bad dream,
In our hearts, your memory lives on

When I'm Gone (It Tears Me Apart)

Written By: Michael Trainor & Ryan Kevan

It’s been a long time,
Since I’ve seen your face,
Can’t wait to see you,
In my arms and my embrace

I’ve seen the world now,
And all I need is you,
A shot of whiskey each day,
To help me get through

I feel you near me,
Wipe the tears from your eyes,
So many good times baby,
Singing sweet lullabies

Yeah,
I’ve got this feeling,
Deep in my heart,
And when I see you,
It tears me apart,
It tears me apart,
When I’m Gone
Yeah-yeah

You light the fire,
That burns inside my soul,
When I’m around you,
I lose all my self control

I’ve never ever met,
Nobody quite like you,
Time made me realise,
My love for you is true

The road is long,
But still I’m holding on,
I have to leave now,
But I’ll think of you when I’m gone

Yeah,
I’ve got this feeling,
Deep in my heart,
And when I see you,
It tears me apart,
It tears me apart
I’ve got this feeling,
Deep in my heart,
And when I see you,
It tears me apart,
It tears me apart

When I’m gone,
It tears me apart,
When I’m gone,
It tears me apart,
When I’m gone,
It tears me apart,
When I’m gone

Someday I’ll see you again,
Oh baby
