Winter Kills Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Oath of the Abyss (5:36)
In these depths of desperate despair,
We bring down judgment from the sky with prayers!
I drank till the waters turned whiskey rye,
I drank till the waters run dry!
Don't be the one to come knocking at my door,
Hell no, I won't pick you up off the floor!
Don't come here with blood in your filthy mouth,
I wasn't there when the deal went south!

You sold me out
I sold myself in,
I picked up the claw!
You dealt me out,
I dealt myself in!
And love is NOT the law!
Not the law!

Black moon
The omen is here!
Darkness looms!
There's fear the end
Could come too soon,
Pale as a ghost,
What you see?
What you know?
Time to enlist...
The Oath of the Abyss!

Fuck your rapture, can't you see it's never coming!
So better watch where you place the blame, place the blame!
You left me on the inside scarred!
You're digging up the corpses, digging up graves!
Don't' be the one to come knocking at my door!
Hell no, I won't pick you up off the floor!
Don't come here with blood in your filthy mouth,
I wasn't there when the deal went south!

Take the Oath, the Oath of the Abyss
Take the Oath, it's time to enlist!

Time to enlist!
2. Ruthless (4:09)
AAAAH!
UGH!

Dealer
Dealer
Dealer
Dealer

Dealer of destruction
The shogun of sorrow
The merchant of doom
Accomplice to anyone

The fact is fear
Will fuck you up
So drain your cup
And take another down

A chilling portrait
of the way we were
Promised mercy
but delivered destruction

Cross my heart
despite the odds
And all your facades
I'm consumed by gods

I'll see you in blood
Left for dead
Face down in mud
Fuck you I'm ruthless

Despite the odds
Left for dead
Face in the mud
I'm fucking ruthless

Damn the deceiver
The ancient of evils
You'll come to cower
In front of the will for power

The fact is fear
Will fuck you up
So drain your cup
And take another down

A chilling portrait
of the way we were
Promised mercy
but delivered destruction

Cross my heart
despite the odds
And all your facades
I'm consumed by gods

I'll see you in blood
Left for dead
Face down in mud
Fuck you I'm ruthless

Despite the odds
Left for dead
Face in the mud
Fuck you I'm ruthless

Look what you've done to me
Now with candlelight I pray
Love is not the law
Underneath the harvest moon

The dealer of destruction
The shogun of sorrow
The merchant of doom
Accomplice to anyone

The fact is fear
Will fuck you up
So drain your cup
And take another down

I'll see you in blood
Left for dead
Face in the mud
Fuck you I'm ruthless

Fuck you I'm ruthless
Left for dead
Fuck you I'm ruthless
Left for dead
3. Desperate Times (4:08)
Holy water won't help you now!
Here I lie, when it promised me death
On my last breath
Short changed
So show some backbone
Keep a bad dog with you and the others won't bite
Damn what's done
It's been done already
Keep it steady!
Here I come and hell is coming with me
Heart is black, body is blue
Nights I've empathized drowning with you!
You raise up
My cup
Defeat does not exist!

Desperate times
Call for desperate measures
Go ahead and pour that gasoline
Desperate times
Call for desperate measures
Nothing's certain but the unforeseen
If you think I'll bend
You're sadly mistaken
Desperate times
Call for desperate measures

Because I could not stop for death
It kindly stopped for me!
The carriage held but just ourselves
Alongside rode immortality...
You tend to choose your poison
Here I lie when it promised me death on my last breath

Defeat does not exist!
Desperate times
Call for desperate measures
Desperate!
4. Winter Kills (4:54)
This is haunted, haunted, haunted
This is haunted
This is haunted, haunted, haunted
This is haunted

Growing up threw it off my back, it's a fact
Without this (ladder?) there's no remedy for you
I don't rest and I don't sleep without one eye on faith
No regret, never look (at...justice forgets?)

Distance and time pissing oceans away
And time just can't relate to you
Distance and time there's a canyon so wide
Not watching you die (on the fire strewn?)

Look at me talk to you
Around this newness is truth
Love me like and join the few
This is haunted

Love, faith where your angels fly
But you're living a lie
And I
Am not the evil

Mark my words, there'll be a change in the guard
There's frost on the sill so now winter kills
Keep this in mind while you're waiting for that sign
There's frost on the sill so now winter kills

(there ain't no sense of fiction?)
It's a new religion
I see your half assed light
Better watch your back at night

I don't rest and I don't sleep
Without one eye on faith
Don't regret, never forget
(....)

Like a spark into your heartache
Did you quorum, separate from
Still they preyed
Split your skull just for fun, (not run?)
We'll be here til the job is done
Til the job is done!
Split your skull just for

Separate bones, blow your mind
To separate bones

Mark my words! there'll be a change in the guard!
Shrouded in darkness, a chill in the air
(the heaven swings open?)
Winter kills!

I could (stomp you til your heat bleeds?)
[Indecipherable]
5. The Appetite (4:46)
Eyes on fire on you
Your presence is violation
Leave now or it's annihilation
It's best for both parties
If we just part
Eyes on fire on you
Take it with a grain of salt
Take it to the limit
Take the world by storm
Keep your head in
Take the gloves off
Take your life in your hands
Eyes on fire on you
Live for the day...
No one promised tomorrow anyway...
Gotta keep the dogs at bay
Keep the dogs at bay

Do you have the appetite?
The expectations to suffice?
Your cups of sorrow filled with spite
I'm begging, I'm begging, I'm begging you!

Don't dwell, it's my burden to bare
Fall time season it's in the air
It's best for both parties
If we just part

Do you...
Do you have...
Do you have the appetite..?
Do you have my eyes on fire on you

Don't with your life away
If you think I give a fuck
Better think again, good luck!
Disconnected, diconnect you
Eyes on fire on you
If you think I give a fuck, you better think again, good luck!
Disconnected, disconnect you
6. Gutted (3:28)
Take it back, you better take it back
Fall time season, you've got darken hearts across the veil
So dim the bright lights
Damned if you do
Damned if you don't
Don't rest or you'll give up your nine lives

Burning bright between the wastes and the stars
No matter how you call it
You've never done a solid
Your mind is weaker
So you fell hook, line and sinker
It's a mess, I don't know what to call it
There must be some kind of compromise
Take it back!
Confused, conflicted, justified
Better to burn than turn chose your allies
Heavy is the cost
Don't speak of love that's lost
In my eyes you're a sacrifice
Hell bent on the outcome of the dice
Gutted, fucking gutted! You're gutted!

Death smiled
Covered up your past
So you do you best not to flaunt it, bitch!
There's nothing left but broken dreams and it seems
That's the way you want it

Gutted, you're gutted!

Take it back, you better...
Take it back
Take it
7. Curses and Epitaphs (5:04)
I’ve been stiffed! One more fix!
How’d it come to this?!
Seen you past, felt your sins,
It’s death for the dead!

Watch your step, take the reigns,
And fill your veins tonight.. fill it!
Full of the evening!
Keep the flame, earn your name.
Try to escape, all the hell that is coming your way!
Self- assured, there’s no cure, lost what you had, all so sad!
And I can’t do anything!

All the dreams of youth, the regrets of maturity,
All the angels wept, at the loss of eternity, Eternity!
I’ve been stiffed one more fix, how’d it come to this?

Your desperate attempts won’t last.
While you try to purify the past,
It’s all just curses & epitaphs!

Watch you step, take the reigns,
Of this hurricane!
Let’s feel the cyclone, with all of this rage!
I’m so far gone.
Never mourn, lost what you had,
You’re so far gone, and I can’t do anything!

The days are long,
The nights are longer!

I spend my time, build a heart of armour!
I’m even stronger! Just hold on longer!
Now I’m even stronger!
8. Caring's Overkill (4:33)
Doomed from the start it broke my heart!
Demented thoughts eclipsing time…
Now that part of me is cast aside
So long, goodbye, It’s conquer and divide.

She wears her horns just like a sacred crown…
There’s no current strong enough to even hold her down..
All I ask of you is fucking where you’ve been?!
No doubt out hiding the bodies again, again!
Every time I ask you what’s up,
I’m constantly, constantly under cut!

Born to Burn
Say what You will
Its taking its toll
You’re Caring’s Overkill
Born to Burn
Say what You will
Its taking its toll
You’re Caring’s Overkill
You’re Caring’s Overkill
Watched it Slip Downhill

Sometimes it takes a good fall, all in all
To know exactly where you stand!
You’re hanging from the skin of your teeth
So do just what you can!

My ears can’t believe what they cannot hear,
My eyes are blinded from what they cannot see,
It drags me down, drags me down!
My burden to bare, nothing matters but the rain,
these pills that eventually keep me sane.
The pain I feel the battles won,
Phoenix wings embrace the sun!

Your caring is… Your caring is... Overkill!
9. Haunting Refrain (4:59)
All you heard was the cry of the crone.
Those words bite and leave scars.
Even now the temple awaits you

Those thoughts won’t take you far.
You’re no good so others scatter
Turn your back to others laughter
Between the pillars it’s all misfortune.
Under the guise, in the name of Luna
Get a life.
I can’t get a word in edgewise.
Give me a hand, give it a rest.
Now you criticize, all bets are off.

Gimme the might,
Gimmie the inside insight.
Tell me the right way to ignite this night.
I see your memory in every face.
It’s just a haunting refrain.

When the screams all have the same name.
Disconnected, you fall to you name.
Between the pillars its’ all misfortune.
Under the guise, in the name of Luna
Tried to persuade me that all of my troubles were blessings,
And tried to persuade me that all of my blessings were trouble.
Trouble, goddamn trouble!

A haunting refrain,
A haunting refrain.
10. Tripping over Tombstones (3:38)
He who hesitates is lost, against the grain, no matter the cost.
Many hands make light work
You’ll get cut short with my words!
In the end you know a pilot in the storm,
Hope you die well
Its fucking farewell.
The chip on your shoulder looks heavy as Hell.
I hope you’re blackballed
You’re fucking stonewalled

You thumb your nose at all you’ve learned.
Just turn you back as bridges burn.

In my heart I’m a war
Tripping over these tombstones
In my heart I’m at war
I keep tripping over these tombstones

It’s your fucking final hour.
I’ve laid out my tattered heart.
Into the blinding light.
To avoid the dark
What did I fall into?
I’m through,
You’ve skewed the view.
Sometimes salvation ain’t but a door away… from you.

There’s no saving grace, we’re at a crossroads
You don’t know, you don’t know me at all, know me at all.

Fucking Farewell
This is war.
Fucking farewell.
Fucking Farewell.
11. Sail (Awolnation cover) (4:04)
This is how I show my love
I made it in my mind because
I blame it on my A.D.D. baby, baby

This is how an angel cries
I blame it on my own sick pride
Blame it on my A.D.D. baby, baby

Sail!
Sail!
Sail!
Sail!
Sail!

Maybe I should cry for help
Maybe I should kill myself
I blame it on my A.D.D. baby, baby

Maybe I'm a different breed
Maybe I'm not listening
So blame it on my A.D.D. baby, baby

Sail! (x5)

La la la la la
La la la la la oh!
La la la la la,
La la la la la oh!
La la la la la,
La la la la la,

Sail! (x5)

Sail with me into the dark (x4)
