Endgame Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Mefisto       Last modified by level Mefisto
1. Dialectic Chaos (2:24)
Instrumental
2. This Day We Fight! (3:31)
For this I was chosen
Because I fear nothing
With confidence I tread through the dead of night
Off to another wartorn faraway battlefields
Wherein lies a daemonic enemy horde

On this day I decide to annoint my fists
Engaging them in the mode of power and war

Stopping at nothing thats short of fulfilling my destiny
Willing to die in my will after you for what I believe

A desperate avenger striking fear in their hearts
Invading their dreams before the day even starts

Whet with your blood I sharpen my sword
No turning the other cheek like a coward
Come tomorrow I may lay down and die
But not this day!

Sent on an unholy quest
To reduce all those who resist
To the size of their shrivelled up souls and scatter them like grist
Vanquish the stranglehold that the netherworld sets for me
The last request of my life is to die killing my enemies

Bathed in blood up to my horses bridle
It's death to retreat, there's no chance of survival

Whet with your blood I sharpen my sword
No turning the other cheek like a coward
Come tommorow I may lay down and die
But not this day

This Day We Fight!

Stripped the fallen heroes
Finish off the wounded
Collect the spoils of war
and send them the dead

This Day We Fight!
3. 44 Minutes (4:37)
It was a cool winter's morning
A wink shortly past 9:00 am
The armored car they wanted to heist wasn't coming
So instead they went for the bank

The fateful duo that sat in the getaway car
Heavily sedated with thousands of rounds
Armor piercing fully automatic weapons
The bowls of wrath poured out on the ground

Baptized in a firefight
Hot blood running cold as ice
44 minutes of target practice
All hell is breaking loose
Outgunned, watching "The Force"
Come to a firefight with a pocketknife
Getting schooled until they shot Achille's Heel
And it brought down the beast

This was an accident waiting to happen
It wasn't if it would happen, it was when
The city's people sabotaged themselves
Calling their firepower and unfeeded expense

The two most violent men it seemed couldn't be stopped
Standard police issue guns were just not enough
But SWAT arrived and settled the fight
Between AK-47 and AR-15

Baptized in a firefight
Hot blood running cold as ice
44 minutes of target practice
All hell is breaking loose
Outgunned, watching "The Force"
Come to a firefight with a pocketknife
Getting schooled until they shot Achille's Heel
And it brought down the beast
4. 1,320' (3:51)
Grinding my teeth, white knuckles grasp at the wheel
I rush from an avalanche of adrenaline, it's all that I feel
As quick as a bolt of lightning, a rocket ride in a bucket seat
It doesn't get any better than this, it just feeds my need for speed

Supercharged, strapped in and screaming
Fire spiting from the pipes
A burnout by the flame throwing fury
8,000 horses ignite
Full throttle, hit the ground running
With a tank full of nitro
And its 1,320' to go to the finish line

My hands hold tight, a fire breathing stampede
I fall into a trance, hold my breath till the light turns green
In a cloud of nitro methane, melting rubber, I say my prayers
Man and machine accelerate and I vanish in thin air

Supercharged, strapped in and screaming
Fire spiting from the pipes
A burnout by the flame throwing fury
8,000 horses ignite
Full throttle, hit the ground running
With a tank full of nitro
And its 1,320' to go to the finish line
5. Bite the Hand (4:01)
They ball-gagged Lady Justice
And blindfolded her so she can't see
The erosion of the peoples' trust
Of what will come to be an FDIC Assisted Suicide

The depression of a depression
Worldwide suicide for the economy
Caused by the dialectic chaos when the
Mob on Wall Street took "We the people" for a ride

When its dog eat dog, you are what you eat
Just like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds
Like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds
Just like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds

They took everything and anything
As long as it once belonged to me
The rats got all the money; the roaches
Licked the cupboards clean of TV dinners and beer

This never-ending nightmare
Of the dreams I'll never, ever get to see
And just one silver-bullet to your head
It will set me free from all the life I wasted trusting you

When its dog eat dog, you are what you eat
Just like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds
Like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds
When its dog eat dog, you are what you eat
Like the mad dog that bites the hand that feeds
Just like the mad dog you bite the hand that feeds
6. Bodies (3:34)
The secret life goes by so quickly
One day your here and the your gone
This is the moment I've lived my whole life for
And I'll never give up I've waited to long
I've waited waited to long I've waited to long

And all along the road
All the bodies left behind
May all of been good friends
Just not good friends of mine
I've been kicked out and said I've quit
And I said I've had enough and this is it
All I wanted was just one more show for the road
'cause it was over last time before I could blink
I could blink

I've waited waited to long I've waited to long

And all along the road
All the bodies left behind
May all of been good friends
Just not good friends of mine
They're bodies left behind
7. Endgame (5:52)
Attention! Attention!! All citizens are ordered to report to their District detention centers! Do not return to your homes; do not contact anyone! Do not use any cellular or GPS devices! Surrender all weapons at once! Attention! This way to the camps!

I woke up in a black FEMA box
Darkness was all around me, in my coffin
My dreams are all nightmares anymore
And this is what I dream every night

The Leader of the New World Order, the President of the United States
Has declared anyone now residing inside the US of A
Without the RFID chip, you’re just an illegal alien
An enemy combatant of America, welcome to the New World Order

This is the end of the road; this is the end of the line
This is the end of your life; this is the . . .

A society in a society, inside the fence life as you know it stops
They got their rules of conduct and we got ours
Be quick or be dead, you crumble up and die, the clock is
Ticking so slowly and so much can happen in an hour

I learned my lessons the hard way, every scar I earned
I had to bleed, inside the day yard
A system of controlled movement, like a giant ant farm
Any time is long time, now you’re not in charge of your time anymore

The Ex-President signed a secret bill that can
Land a legal US Citizen in jail and the
Patriot act stripped away our constitutional rights
They say a Concentration camp just popped up, yeah, right!

Refuse the chip? Ha! Get persecuted and beat by the
Tyranny of Mind control, for the mark of the beast
All rights removed, you’re punished, captured, and enslaved
Believe me when I say, “This IS the Endgame!”
8. The Hardest Part of Letting Go... Sealed With A Kiss (4:42)
Such a pretty face
Radiant, I saw you across the room
I know I had to have you
I started to chase
I knew I would do anything
To take your hand and make you mine

But I learned long ago
If you love someone you had to let it go
Let it go
Let it go
The hardest part of letting go is saying goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

You fettered away in a makeshift cell
Beneath the venomous moonlight
I unleash my plan to watch you fail
The one I held so high

Go to sleep my love
And taste my sweet revenge
On your lips
Sealed with a kiss

I return to the masquerade ball
And leave the lone figure weeping
Stone by stone, immured in the wall
Forever left for safe keeping

Go to sleep my love
And taste my sweet revenge
On your lips
Sealed with a kiss

But I learned long ago
If you love someone to have to let it go
Let it go
Let it
9. Head Crusher (3:26)
Time to take your last walk in this world
Before your journey begins underground
But not before we torment you from your
Cell straight to hell with a short detour in-between

Begging for mercy, all alone
Unable to handle the pressure
Before his mortification, now let the torture begin

Death by the head crusher, Head Crusher!

The horrific torture device
For those who fail interrogation
The most painful technique ever known
People thirst for the worst, the skull’s disintegration

Beaten, broken, in bloody rags
Adding insult to injury, he recants
But it’s much too late, now let the torture begin

Death by the head crusher, Head Crusher!

On your knees, prisoner, take your position
Place your chin forward into the restraints
Your head slowly caves in from the compression
You faint in a blackout from the infernal pain

Twisting, turning the giant screw
Your teeth are breaking loose
Crushed and splintering into your mouth

Winding down, cutting through
Like broken glass being chewed
The fragmented skull and shattering bones
There's nothing you can do
10. How the Story Ends (4:47)
Far off on the horizon you can barely see their torches
But rest assured they're out there and they're coming
If you listen, the sound is growing nearer of infantry
Marching out a hypnotizing rhythm

Destroying every town
Light it up and burn it down
You may not like it now
But this is how the story ends

Above the ring of clashing steel, they raise flags of war
A sign to all the warriors who cannot hear
Amidst smoke of cannonballs, they bang the drums of death
Pound a cadence out for those who cannot see

Destroying every town
Light it up and burn it down
You may not like it now
But this is how the story ends

Poison the well and scorch the earth
Everything is slashed and burnt
You may not like it now
But this is how the story ends

Destroying every town
Light it up and burn it down
You may not like it now
But this is how the story ends

Poison the well and scorch the earth
Everything is slashed and burnt
You may not like it now
But this is how the story ends
11. The Right to Go Insane (4:20)
I barely get to the graveyard shift on time
After pulling another grueling 9 to 5
I live from credit card to check
The paper money's whirling by
And I hardly just
Just barely only just survive

I'm living on the edge
Reality is teetering
My mind is on the brink

How will I face the day tomorrow
If I can't make it through today
I've got nothing left to lose but my sanity
And the right to go insane

I've got nothing left to lose but my mind
I've got nothing left to choose
So I think I'll go insane

My stomach aches
Insufficient funds
My cheeks are gaunt
And my guts are overdrawn
My head pounds
Starvation's giving me the shakes
Too much squalor
Too much pressure
Now I'm getting pissed

I'm living on the edge
Reality is teetering
My mind is on the brink

How will I face the day tomorrow
If I can't make it through today
I've got nothing left to lose but my sanity
And the right to go insane

I've got nothing left to lose but my mind
I've got nothing left to choose
So I think I'll go insane
