1. Plagues of Babylon (7:47)
we lie in wait
time is drawing near
earth crisis is all too clear
the human virus starting to awake
so me must manipulate

we can't accept this human threat
the power structure is intact
as gods on earth we will forsake
we must release the plague

so if you're asking yourself why
your eyes are blind to the raging storm
will they cleanse the earth of humanity
unleash the plagues of babylon

compliance
submission
cowards led astray
traitors
liars
deceivers have their way

"And this shall be the plague that which the gods will strike all the peoples that wage war against them, their flesh will rot while standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths."

there's no escape
they feed from our hands
our minions plot
as they make their stand
as gods on earth
we have foreseen
we'll make the peasants bleed

so if you're asking yourself why
your eyes are blind to the raging storm
will they cleanse the earth of humanity
unleash the plagues of babylon
2. If I Could See You (3:56)
Where can I turn?
You’ve grown away
I grieve in silence
So much I’ve learned to life today
Still I need your guidance
You always find the words to say
To ease my troubles mind
Now you’ve gone I feel alone
If I could see you one more time

If I could see you now
You’d help me find my way
If I could see you now
You’d help me find my way

Where can I turn?
You’ve grown away
I need your words of wisdom
Sometimes I’m lost and in the rage
Taking things for granted
You were the one who did believe
When no one else could see
If I could share what’s on my mind
If I could see you one last time

If I could see you now
You’d help me find my way
If I could see you now
You’d help me find my way

If I could see you now
You’d help me find my way
I’ll find the strength somehow
I’ll fight to seize the day
3. Peacemaker (5:02)
As the sun sets I ride
With my pistol by my side
I know I’ll survive tonight
Like dust in the wind
I’m restless with no end
I’ll find the man who sinned
Death heavy on my mind
The wounds will heal in time
My strength will win the fight
The sun begins to rise

Rode in town with a loaded gun
My face is burnt and I’m on the run
The whole damn town won’t look me in the eye
Took a seat at the local saloon
Piano man playin’ outta time
A shot of whisky to wash away the pain

Raise my head the man is staring at me
I grind my teeth my heart quickly beats
I make my move cause it’s time for him to pay
He stands and tries to ghost himself away
I quickly follow I can’t hesitate
My trigger finger tellin’ me he’s got to die

I shot my gun he had to pay the final price
One man down many more to go
I’m justified I just need to settle the score
They’ll never take y peacemaker away

Grab my steed and I’m set to tide
I gotta move or they’ll catch my hide
I’m only free with the blood I’ve left behind
I make my journey across the dusty plains
I got a plan to cure my sorrow and pain
The smoke clears and I live to see the day

I shot my gun he had to pay the final price
One man down many more to go
I’m justified I just need to settle the score
They’ll never take y peacemaker away
