Could You Watch Your Children Burn Lyrics

Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Premeditated (4:06)
Dear old friend
I'm writing this to plant an image in your head
For the girl that you fucked and left for dead
After she told me not a word was said
But something changed inside me

And if she wasn't your first
I'm making sure she's your last
It takes such a small human being
to lose all control and to lust like a fiend

So keep on praying that her fear keeps you protected
I'll rest my mind
And let you live on my given time

I've made this my life
It left me sleepless at night
I watched her world fall apart in your hands (in your hands)

So tell me
was it everything you hoped and dreamed?
Her legs pinned down
and face shoved deep into your seat
You feel blood, you don't stop, you don't stop, just repeat
It only makes you harder
And this wait has only made me stronger

You have no idea how long I've planned this out in my head

He just shut his bedroom door for the last time
I'm keeping still, breathing slow, with my hands tight
I feel the demons inside me
They feel what I feel
I am connected through a mindset

(I fuel the demons inside me
I feel what they feel
and we are all connected)

He lays in his bed so hopeless
I watch the life leave his eyes
Slaughtered the man I despised
Wrapped up his body in his bed sheets
My hearts racing faster than this car
Did I stab him enough?
At least I made it this far
I only wished you could see the look on your mother's face
You've truly broken her heart
I rest my mind
So she can finally sleep at night

I've made this my life
It left me sleepless at night
I watched her world fall apart in your hands (in your hands)
2. Fiction Religion (3:39)
I sold my soul for a conscious mind
Living on the other side of life
I just keep falling back faster and faster
The hands from below keep on pulling me under
I am living in between.

Can't seem to shut my brain off
I haven't slept, I keep waiting on a sign
I won't live a lie to give meaning to my life
I don't feel anything now
My hope and my faith let me down.

I will never be one of those creatures that lives so mundane.

To the ones who have never opened their minds past what they've been shown,
To every false prophet who claims an answer to what they cannot show,
Reality is coming quicker than you know.

Could you watch your children burn?

Yeah, you think you could, think you could yeah?
I don't think you could, no I don't think you could.
And that's the difference between you and him.

Can't seem to shut my brain off
I haven't slept, I keep waiting on a sign
I won't live a lie to give meaning to my life
I don't feel anything now
My hope and my faith let me down.
3. Digging Your Grave (3:21)
I think you know me
I think you know why I'm here
It's time I take what's mine

I think you know me
I think you know why I'm here
I will not waste my time
Heah

I will not waste my time

Do you remember
The night I told you you'd lost it?
I swear that I mean it
I'm not afraid to admit that I've changed
I'm not to be trusted

There's nothing you can do
There's nothing you can say
That will change my thinking
(That will change my thinking)
You can't change things

[Chorus:]
All I know is this is wrong
And I'm taking back what's mine
And you can watch me
Listen close, listen close
You will never cross my mind
And you can trust me
(You will never cross my mind)

I hope that you know
That it's been my mission to ruin you
I will not sleep until it's done

What were you expecting?
You know that I'm so cold
And "my emotions are aimless"
You don't stand a chance
You don't stand a fucking chance, prick

I won't control myself this time
And I will laugh in the face
Of the fuck that betrayed me

One by one he will say his petty words
And one by one I will tear his limbs apart
One by one
I will tear your limbs apart
And to your friends
Fuck, fuck them all
Fuck you all
You worthless slime
Fuck you all

No, I will never let this down

[Chorus:]
All I know is this is wrong
And I'm taking back what's mine
And you can watch me
Listen close, listen close
You will never cross my mind
And you can trust me
You will never cross my mind
Wo-o-oh
4. Population Control (3:23)
I see them all, I watch them multiply
I found them feeding on the young and I know
They feel no shame for what they've done here
They slither and swallow
The prey that they take

Every night it gets harder to get off
The pills and the games
They won't last you forever

Tell me what it's like to be a fucking waste
And to have respect from no one
You live to keep the problem in its cycle
Yeah, you disgust me
Every single line planned out
And they fall hard
Just another roll in the hay
They won't remember your name

Mistaken my words once again
Don't forget that I knew you
When this all began
You're on borrowed time
(You're on borrowed time)
You're on borrowed time
(Your days are numbered)

What made you think
That this is yours to take?
You've been living a dream life
It's sickening
Drink, fuck, sleep, repeat
Does it ever get old?

This time I'll wait here
I'll set it off
Slit your fucking throat
Watch you bleed and then we'll burn you down

We are all fed up
I'm gonna shut you down
I will chew you up
And I'll spit you out
It's overdue
I'm the one that's gonna call you out
Bitch

I'll call you out

I am done dealing with fucks like you
Sticking your dick into anything that moves
You are a waste of flesh
I have no patience
No fucking remorse anymore

I will set this off again
Lay you out flat
Just like the girls you ruined
It's been a dream of mine
To make you suffer

It's plain to see
The calm it brings
The wait is up
I'm listening
It's got you now
A victim of lost time
You're out of time

Explain to me the reasoning
The wait is up
I'm listening
It's got you now
A victim of lost time
You're out of time
5. Troll (3:28)
You walk around
With an undeserved sense of pride
I know and your friends know
I'm not the only one in line

I tried to feel sorry for you
I tried to let go
But it's not working

No matter what I try
It never seems to change
I can't let this go
I can't let this go

[Chorus:]
I think I'm losing my mind
It's something unpredictable
I think there's something inside
That makes me wanna lose it all
You won't take away
What I have made for myself

I fantasize about the things
That I could do to you
I picture you without your teeth
I'd beat your face into the floor
Until it laid flat
I'd peel the flesh from your fucking bones
I hope you don't forget that

I have no, I feel no guilt whatsoever

This is a fucking promise
That I will make your life so miserable
(Don't think that you are safe)
(For one fucking second)
Listen the fuck up
I am coming
I am coming
I am coming

No matter what I try
It never seems to change
I can't let this go
I can't let this go

[Chorus:]
I think I'm losing my mind
It's something unpredictable
I think there's something inside
That makes me wanna lose it all
You won't take away
What I have made for myself
6. The Devil's Contract (3:21)
I left my stress
The need to make amends
In the corner
I torture the ones that I knew

I stayed alone
Cus I was rotting on the inside
I planned this out
So they won't think it was a suicide

You were right
You were all right
There is a god
But he isn't on my side
They will never know what went wrong
(What went wrong)
They're better off thinking I died strong

(I was sold as a slave)
(The demons dug their nails)
(And my debt's not paid)

I've given up on sleeping
I'm done repeating the same day over and over
I think I'm losing it

They were right
They were all right
There is a god
But he watches as my soul dies

(I don't need a fucking savior)

[Chorus:]
Sold my soul
Don't you believe me?
Sold my soul
They won't forget me
Sold my soul to Hell
Don't you believe me?
They think they know
But they don't know
They'll never know
Told my family and friends
Just to forget me
They think there's hope
But there's no hope
They've gotta know

I fought these thoughts
Cus I knew they were destroying me
I struck blood from an undeserving enemy

You were right
You were all right
There is a Hell
But it's waiting for the right time

They will never know what went wrong
They're better off thinking I died strong
They will claw
They will bite
They will keep me
I will cut
I will stab
Just release me

The man that you knew
Sends regards from the grave
Says he's gone but not dead
But there's no one to save
No one

I am here to do your work
So just release me

[Chorus:]
Because I sold my soul to Hell
Don't you believe me?
They think they know
But they don't know
They'll never know
Told my family and friends
Just to forget me
They think there's hope
But there's no hope
They've gotta know
There's no fucking hope
7. Shyann Weeps (3:10)
Her face was so mangled
It didn't even look human anymore
I stood and watched her drown
In her own blood
And I'm, and I'm hoping if there's a hell
That that's exactly where she is
Right fucking now

(I can't get this out of my head)

The dream was so vivid
Trapped inside my own mind
I'm thinking thoughts that make it hard
To fall asleep at night
I'm obsessed
I'm anticipating the sounds
That she could make

Every voice goes silent
In the back of my head
I feel a void pumping through my veins
(Through my veins)
So inhumane I could never speak

I can't believe
That you've managed to slide through
Breeding, deceiving the ones that you love
You make me fucking sick
And I will not let you spread your disease
To the rest of the world

All the ones you thought you knew
Turn against you
Turned their backs and let you drown
Just waiting on the demons now
I just keep waiting, hoping, obsessing

I just can't get you out of my fucking head
I hope you're waiting for me
I hope you know that I'll never stop pushing

Fuck you
Fuck your family
Fuck any of your friends
And fuck your dumb tattoos
Fuck you

I will never stop
I'll never let go of this
I'll keep your name in my mouth
Till the day that I die

Till the day that I die
8. Sober and Soulless (3:32)
There are things I'll never understand
There are times I almost leave
Pretend the life I had was just a dream

Some days it truly kills me
It's getting harder to go through life
All the thoughts that haunt my head
All the ones that just leave me restless
Just let me be
(Just let me be)
I'm so strung out

Making everything worse
Than it needs to be
I'm always finding the downside
Of everything

[Chorus:]
I won't live in shame
Can't live this way
(I won't live in shame)
Can't live this way
And I'll be the first to say
I know I'm going insane

I've been just getting by day by day
Watching everything go
The things that I love come to a close
Every day I'm awake it's the same thing
Every wall is the same
It's the same place
I'm living the life
That I had always feared
I've ruined the chances
And the hopes that I held dear
But today things change
(Things change)

I've beaten myself up far to many times
I've let my life pass me by
For too long
I let my life pass me by

I let my life pass me by
I let my life pass me by
I let my life pass me... by

[Chorus:]
I won't live in shame
Can't live this way
(I won't live in shame)
Can't live this way
And I'll be the first to say
I know I'm going insane

There are things I'll never understand
There are times I almost leave
Pretend the life I had was just a dream

Some days it truly kills me
It's getting harder to go through life
All the thoughts that haunt my head
All the ones that just leave me restless

I let my life pass me by
I let my life pass me... by
9. Bible Butcher (4:08)
I'd been a slave to a culture of wasted flesh
I must confess
That I took pride in my simple life

I'm not a saint
I'm not a perfect example
I live my life
Love and die
Just take one step at a time
And you'll never change my mind

Trust these words
There's not a book that can change my mind
So take this and trust me
Cus I just feel so suffocated by you
Will you let me breathe?

I've got this spite that follows me
Every problem is somehow caused by me
I will never win
So I'll take the blame for everything
I would never betray you
I'm still the same
And I'm not the only one
Who feels jaded
You build these walls between us

(And you can take this)
(Whichever way you want)
You are just a voice inside my head
(It's in my head)

(I won't question my urge to stop you)
(I won't listen or change my ways)
I won't question my urge to stop you
I won't listen or change my ways

I won't question my urge to stop you
I won't listen or change my ways
I won't question my urge to stop you
I won't listen or change my ways

Fuck your beliefs
Take them back where you found them
Open those ears
Shut your mouth and just hear my side

I'll change your mind
I will change your mind
I will change your mind
10. Glad You're Gone (4:05)
Do you recall a time when I
Said that I would never try this?
I'm awake and I'm alive,
You're wasting your time,
The weight is off of me

I know it's hard to understand,
And I know you think you're losing me all over again

I'm alive and I'll survive
I'm alive because you gave me life

I know your heart beats to see me,
I know you can't sleep because of me,
I'd like to give you peace of mind

'Cause I know that you're listening
And I know you fucked up everything,
But I don't need your love, no

I'm alive and I'll survive
I'm alive because you gave me life

So when you're lying in your bed
And thoughts of me race through your head
Just know

That I'm alive and I'll survive
I'm alive because you gave me life
