Hell and Back Lyrics

7. Hell and Back (9:23)
Track rating :  77.5 / 100       Votes :  2       [ ]
I have led the lamb into the slaughter
Ice flowed through my veins
I was my own worst enemy, still hellish memories remain.

I have shown the serpent into the garden
And wore the Mask of Cain,
Take a look in these eyes, where the past evil lies - and
Feel my pain.

Oh - The Hell Hounds drawning near
...And my conscience isn't clear

I'm the one who whispered the words the words to judas,
I'm the Hangman's noose.
Through I try to repent, in a valiant attempt - it's no use.

I'm the Judge, the Jury, the Executioner
Oh, the things I've seen
With an eye for an eye, kill the man, kill the past, kill the dream.

Oh - The Hell Hounds drawning near
...And my conscience isn't clear

I've been to Hell and back...
And I can't justify believing the lie. I slowly fade to black
Learning to Live and Die - I'm Learning to Fly.

Under the moonlit glow - I just can't let it go
Words spoke in vain, now fall like a silent tear.
As shades dance by candlelight - in the dead of the night
And all of the things I yearn slowly disappear
And now there's nothing here...

Riding the storm, heading for a Fall
I curse you all - be Damned.
Through the haze, the sword that cuts both ways
A line is drawn in the sand.

Ironbound - a will as cold as steel.
To Conquer all and Divide
Striking with an iron fist of will
I will not be denied.

On and on and on... No quarter asked, no quarter given.
On and on and on... Never forgotten or forgiven.

Thunders rise from the Terror's eyes
Scorched by a heart drenched in black.
No return, I will watch it burn
Now there's no turning back.

On and on and on... No quarter asked, no quarter given.
On and on and on... Never forgotten or forgiven.

I've been to Hell and back...
And I can't justify believing the lie. I slowly fade to black
Learning to Live and Die - I'm Learning to Fly.
