Pray for Villains Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level dImmUholic
1. Pray For Villains (4:02)
Bitter Blood on the blood-stained highway
We're brothers in arms 'til we get it right
You're gonna want it your way
It's gonna be done now
Don't take it too far, gonna get it right
Move on from the past
Agree to disagree

Every sorrow has its source
And your conscience isn't free
In the dog days of Summer
On another sober September
This was meant for you

Am I not my brother's keeper?
All is what it seems to be
I'm A strong rival
A bitter enemy
Best friend
Till the end
The man you wish to be

They pray for villains
When their heroes let them down
They pray for villains
When their heroes let them down
Let them down!

The ties that bind he clock that winds
As the oceans meet the sky
On the hour of my death
Will you be standing by

Every sorrow has its source
And your conscience isn't free
In the dog days of Summer
On another sober September
This was meant for you

Am I not my brother's keeper?
All is what it seems to be
I'm A strong rival
A bitter enemy
Best friend
Till the end
The man you wish to be

They pray for villains
When their heroes let them down
They pray for villains
When their heroes let them down
Let them down!

Bless the broken road
As we limp back home
You get off on the sound
Of everything coming down, so down
Walk down the broken road!
2. Pure Sincerity (4:38)
Dying is Easy
It's living that's hard
It's so disturbing to hear what you're fearing
Rain of terror out in the cold

Give em what they want
Give em what they need

Pure sincerity [x2]
It's what made me born from insanity
Pure sincerity
Pure!

Questions asked, the answers come quickly
Remorse can be so dangerous
Wolf in the fold, terror within
Out in the cold

Give em what they want
Give em what they need

Pure sincerity [x2]
It's what made me born from insanity
Pure sincerity

The things I am
The things that I've become
The wings of honor
Son, Father

Don't know if I can stand
Where I once fucking stood
If I could, if I could
Don't you think I fucking would!
Things to come, it must be from the heart
Things to come

Are these shadows of things from the past?
Are these the shadows of things to come?
Things come, to come!
Things to come
Where do we go? [x2]

Pure sincerity [x2]
It's what made me born from insanity
Pure sincerity
3. Fate Stepped In (5:10)
Fate!

Peddlers, pushers, insects
The chants, charms
Blow sweat and beer
I've got bones to throw

It's no secret
Secrets aren't bought and sold
You gotta pay
With your heart and soul

We're all laid low by the hand,
So get your head up
Get your head up outta the sand,
So get your head up
The lion will eat the hear,
Serpents coil from the start
What did you hope to achieve?

Along side rides, one with great destiny

Fate stepped in to lend a hand again
Fate stepped in to lend a hand
Fate stepped in to lend a hand again
Fate stepped in to lend a hand

Echoes from the grave!

Potions, oils, insects
Their chants, charms
Blood sweat and beer
I've got bones to throw

It's no secret
Secrets aren't bought and sold
You gotta pay
With your heart and soul

We're all laid low by the hand,
So get your head up
Get your head up outta the sand,
So get your head up
The lion will eat the hear,
Serpents coil from the start
What did you hope to achieve?

Along side rides, one with great destiny

Fate stepped in to lend a hand again
Fate stepped in to lend a hand
Fate stepped in to lend a hand again
Fate stepped in to lend a hand

Echoes from the grave!
From the grave [x2]

Watching the vultures swarm
Like being tied down
In the midday sun

Echoes from the grave!
From the grave [x2]
Echoes from the grave!
From the grave [x2]
4. Back With A Vengeance (3:42)
From counted out to feared, some say
That I'm back with a vengeance, I never left
I smell your fear, cause I'm back with a vengeance

Bruised tattered and torn, if it's punishing
Overtimes even the score

Don't start thinking that you've got the best of me.
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!
Don't start thinking that you've got the best of me.
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!

One foot in Hell, up on the highway
Now I'm back with a vengeance, no matter what I've said
The vendetta's not dead, I'm back with a vengeance

Bruised tattered and torn, if it's punishing
Overtimes even the score

Don't start thinking that you've got the best of me.
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!
Don't start thinking that you've got the best of me.
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!

No! The last of me! [x2]
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!

I've been waiting all this time, because time is on my side
Not in the future -- time is now
Because time is on my side
On my side!

Don't start thinking that you've got the best of me.
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!
Don't start thinking that you've got the best of me.
I've got some news for you, you ain't seen the last of me, no!

No! The last of me
No! Don't you ever think!
I've got some news for you!
No! The last of me
No! Don't you ever think!
No! You've seen the last of me
5. I've Been Sober (5:16)
Lord I miss the highway, running against the wind
Blessed are the stoned, and all the places they've been
Shadow of a man at home, beating a dead horse
Home too long, cross to bear

Methods of the past mold the future
You can't fall short as you get older
being underground is being trapped, seize the day
Wear the chains you forged in life
Link by link by link

I've been sober 13 days and 7 nights
I know next time I'll get it right
You tried to make me stay
I said 'No Way', grabbed my bag and hit the highway

Echoes in the dark, new faces bring the sun
Comfort and disturbed, always think the worst
You live and die by your own decisions
You live and die by your own religion

Being run around is being trapped
Seized up, kept!!

Wear the chains you forged in life
Link by link by link [x2]
I've been sober 13 days and 7 nights
I know next time I'll get it right
You tried to make me stay
I said 'No Way', grabbed my bag and hit the highway [x2]

Sobriety suits you so well, it suits you so well
It suits you so well [x3]
So well!!!
6. Resurrection Blvd. (3:59)
She brings me nails and turpentine
All of this time the girl was mine
I am in love like a rusted dog
All of the time my head in the fog

Phone keeps ringing -- she's asking for more
The spaces between places, I'm not worthy, leave me alone

You should have never left me alive
You should have sat and watched me die

Isn't it hard, living on Resurrection Boulevard
Isn't it hard?
Isn't it hard!
[x2]

He bring me life so full of smiles, all of this time been friends for miles
Logging hours, laughing for days, talking shit on other ways
Cats in the corners, dogs on the floor

Phone keeps ringing -- she's asking for more
The spaces between places, I'm not worthy, leave me alone

You should have never left me alive
You should have sat and watched me die

Isn't it hard, living on Resurrection Boulevard
Isn't it hard?
Isn't it hard! [x5]

You should have never left me alive!

Isn't it hard, living on Resurrection Boulevard
Isn't it hard? [x2]
Isn't it?
7. Forgiveness Is A Six Gun (4:42)
33rd degree, on the corner of Quit street and Temptation Avenue
On the road to redemption, outside of heave
Pride can be dangerous and you knew
Method of Execution, length of duration
At what cost?

Forgiveness is a six gun, teach me how to shoot
The truth is like a moving target, forgiveness is a six gun

The streets from the start, have been filled with doubt
And they are set free, you needed someone to carry you
Fighting and counting the days, the error of your ways
Methods of execution, length of duration, at what cost?

Forgiveness is a six gun, teach me how to shoot
The truth is like a moving target, forgiveness is a six gun

In cold blood, dressed in black
Tombstones and tumbleweeds
Left the dead behind, watched em falling
Let Smith and Wesson do the motherfucking talking

Dust in my eyes, dust in the street, shotguns and broken dreams
Now we left the dead behind, watched em falling
Let the Smith and Wesson do the motherfucking talking

Now!

Forgiveness is a six gun, teach me how to shoot
The truth is like a moving target, forgiveness is a six gun
There is no forgiveness [x4]
8. Waiting For November (5:07)
A pain by any other name, is death before its time is due
You survived and made it through
Still inside the loss is buried deep
With what you went through at the funeral
Don't know how you pushed on, buried your creator

Took good care, such kind care

You look so beautiful at your funeral
Laid out and dressed your best, as your daughter put you to rest
You have such faith in life, can't tell you how many times
You've given me my backbone

Took good care, such kind care

You look so beautiful at your funeral
Laid out and dressed your best, as your daughter put you to rest
[x2]

Waiting for November, trying to make you smile
A birthday shared by two, scorpio child

You look so beautiful at your funeral, laid out and dressed your best
As your daughter put you to rest
[x2]

To rest!
So rest! [x2]

Buried in a far away place [x3]
9. It's In The Cards (4:25)
Between the head and the hands, must surely be an heart
Time and space is an illusion for man
One foot in the grave and one to start
Walking against the wind, living by the night

We're all thick as thieves sometimes, and I know it ain't right

It's in the cards, written in the stars
Scratched on the walls of the bars, man
Where demons dwell
Where demons dwell!!

Got scars in bars (knife fight)
Broke bones in arms (ducked a gunfight)
It's hunters moon and I'll be gone soon
You stare like a goat with a twisted smile

There's another motherfucker wants a fist fight
Bringing knives to a gun fight

We're all thick as thieves sometimes, and I know it ain't right

It's in the cards, written in the stars
Scratched on the walls of the bars, man
Where demons dwell
Where demons dwell!!

It's in the cards, written in the stars
Scratched on the walls of the bars, man
Where demons dwell
Where demons dwell!!
10. Another Night in London (3:05)
Laying down the law, listen to the hammer
Mouth of madness, watch the wicked gather
Streets of stone, underneath the grey skies
Nights come, they speak of devils in disguise

It takes people like you, to make people like me
It take people like me to make like you

Let's start a riot, another night in London
Let's start a riot, while the night is still young
[x2]

While the night is still young!!

Shadows of light, not a glimpse of the sun
Going 'til morning, 'til the battles won
Streets of stone, underneath the grey skies
Nights come, they speak of devils in disguise

It takes people like you, to make people like me
It take people like me to make like you

Let's start a riot, another night in London
Let's start a riot, while the night is still young
[x2]

Shots fired, the sound of a new generation
No future, no revolution

For you!
For you!
For me!
No fucking revolution you!

Let's start a riot, another night in London
Let's start a riot, while the night is still young
[x2]

Shots fired, fights!
While the night is still young!
11. Bitter Pill (4:25)
Turn your tired eyes home, put the sword to stone
Death by boredom, the reach man bears the burden
That the poor man seeks to chase
The chase is certain

Did not see it coming, better stand for something
They're wicked as they come, break the cycle
Racing down the flames, while building the coffins
Iron unbroken, break the cycle

It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow [x2]

I've broke the cycle, after all these years
Death by boredom, not afraid to reveal
What the world is sensing, the chase is certain

Did not see it coming, better stand for something
They're wicked as they come, break the cycle
Racing down the flames, while building the coffins
Iron unbroken, break the cycle
[x2]

It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow [x2]

Silence is my companion

With a pride it's going worldwide
It's spreading worldwide
Across the great divide
[x2]

Healer, believer
On the bended knee, when push comes to shove
Healer, believer
Time and time again, you push me too far

It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow
It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow
It's a bitter pill
Such a bitter pill
It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow
12. Teach Me To Whisper (4:01)
Trouble is on its way
It's on its way

Another day, another decision
One that eventually affects us both
Teach me to whisper, cause I feel like screaming
Teach me to whisper

Anger and hatred are their oars
Revenge their vessel
Be strong, be patient

Making the best of a bad situation
Making the best of!
Making the best of a bad situation
Making the best of!

This is your conscience speaking, spare your spirit
Trouble is on its way, it's on its way
Teach me to whisper
Cause I feel like screaming, teach me to whisper

Anger and hatred are their oars
Revenge their vessel
Be strong
Be patient

Making the best of a bad situation
Making the best of!
Making the best of a bad situation
Making the best of!

Behold the destroyer
By the hand of man
Death be delivered
[x2]

Anger and hatred are their oars
Revenge their vessel
Be strong
Be patient

Making the best of a bad situation
Making the best of!
Making the best of a bad situation
Making the best of!
13. I See Belief (3:55)
Death rides a horse full force, burning bridges
Put asunder, this I'm under
One face, one oath, one truth
Easy money consorts with easy virtue

Sing you sinners silent thunder
The joy of rapture, riding the bullet
It can't be captured
One face, one oath, one truth
Easy money consorts with easy virtue

No methods to their madness
It's gonna be a long hot winter

I see belief, when no one else does
I see belief, when no one else does

Hope dies, better off think of one
Hope dies, these rules are for fools
One face, one oath, one truth
Easy money consorts with easy virtue

Sing you sinners silent thunder
The joy of rapture, riding the bullet
It can't be captured
One face, one oath, one truth
Easy money consorts with easy virtue

No methods to their madness
It's gonna be a long hot winter

I see belief, when no one else does
I see belief, when no one else does
