Lyrics

Face Of Death

Written By: Kate French

Moving pictures our reality
Wondering what it's all for
People talking, yet nobody sees
Beyond all that they think they know
Guilty by your insanity
Always condemning
First to cast the stone

In the face of death
We will stand alone
No one to judge
No one to say
What you should have done
In the face of death
This will all be gone
Live your own way
Soon you will be
In the face of death

Are we really ever good enough
All these things we try to be
Constant struggles for some peace of mind
Life through unfounded dignity
It's just a game you'll never win
'Cause in the end
We're all the same you know

In the face of death
We will stand alone
No one to judge
No one to say
What you should have done
In the face of death
This will all be gone
Live your own way
Soon you will be
In the face of death

Look inside and let it go
Embrace individuality
The differences between us justifying hate
Leaving us with only misery
There's no pride in hypocracy
Live and let live
You'll know the answer soon

In the face of death
We will stand alone
No one to judge
No one to say
What you should have done
In the face of death
This will all be gone
Live your own way
Soon you will be
In the face of death

Death

Blackened Soul

Written By: Corbin King, Kate French

You have no clue what you've done
You're thinking only of one
The time has finally come
And now your blood will run

No way to change it now
I'm here to cut you down
No one will hear you cry
As you begin to die
Your life all over my hands
It's time you understand
You nailed the coffin tight
Everytime you chose to fight
Your mind's a waste of thought
Corrupt in all you've taught
Brought pain to other's lives
And now the turn of tide
Face up show your hand
Never to deal again
This is the final run
Your world will come undone

I spill your blackened soul
Into the pit of hell
The place where you belong
At last you've found your home

Everytime you open your mouth
You show what you're about
A worthless shell of pain
Now victim to your game
Every time you draw a breath
A closer step to death
Your end begins today
No matter if you pray
I'll watch you writhe and plead
Growing weaker as you bleed
And as you're losing sight
You'll see what wasn't right
Too bad that it's too late
The irony of fate
There is no second chance
When death begins to dance

I spill your blackened soul
Into the pit of hell
The place where you belong
At last you've found your home

No way to change it now
I'm here to cut you down
No one will hear you cry
as you begin to die

I spill your blackened soul
Into the pit of hell
The place where you belong
At last you've found your home

My Living Hell

Written By: Kate French

Hell now
Living under animosity
Lay down
Opening the sacrifice to see
No more
You think you've got my number
Disgraced
As I kill the day again
You fail to see I've given up
It's just gone I've had enough
No confusion in my mind
Now I've got to draw the line
You'll see

'Cause I've done my time
Trapped in your prison cell
And this life with you
Has become my living hell

Restrained
Seeming in a false reality
Conveyed
Everything that you could never see
So wrong
Justification's coming
Long gone
Reduced to yourself again
You bled the life right out of me
Nothing left for you to bleed
This transfusion's running dry
And it's time for this to die today

'Cause I've done my time
Trapped in your prison cell
And this life with you
Has become my living hell

My living hell
It's become a living hell

Can't take it back it's too late
You know the damage done
So time for you to go now
I don't care anymore

You lied
When you said that you were never wrong
Apologies

What you never did for all you've done
Oh no
That's it too late it's over
Eat this
Hope you will regret all of your
Thoughtless ways and empty words
So obscene it seems absurd
How you tried to justify
All the awful things you did to me

'Cause I've done my time
Trapped in your prison cell
And this life with you
Has become my living hell
