Lyrics

 

Ghost of a Gunslinger

The sun is setting
Setting my fate
I’d love to choose again
The dust is rising
Buries my soul
I’d love to live again

Empty shells
And hollow holes
I just pretend I’m setting them free
On the run
Just me and my gun
I just pretend that these chains don’t hold me

I’ll see your face again in the end
You’ll be a martyr for the damned, my friend
I’ll give your bullet back in the end
You left me to die

I’ll see your face again in the end
You’ll be a martyr for the damned, my friend
I’ll give your bullet back in the end
You left me to die

 

In My Arms

Remember when,
We tore those crazy outlaws limb from limb?
And amid those melodious fatal cries
I stared into your loving eyes
Remember when,
I kissed you on the lips that fateful starlit night?
I thought it was to be
My final hour
But you showed me that there’s love
That won’t turn sour

And you’re the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen
You beautiful soul
You killing machine
I’ll love you ’til the final sunset
Or ’til you’ve drained every bullet shell
In the world

I look at you
And every other care just disappears
You melt my soul
And break my heart
You tear mortal flesh apart
And I believe
We’re all just means unto each other’s ends
Another on this list
Will die tonight
And we’re the ones who’ll make
The world right

And you’re the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen
You beautiful soul
You killing machine
I’ll love you ’til the final sunset
Or ’til you drained ever bullet shell

I’ll hold you in my arms tonight
Just me and you in the moonlight
We’ll watch the blood trickle down
He’ll wear that dripping crimson crown
One more dies by my greedy hands
But I’m not the one who draws the plans
I’m choking by the hands of fate
But am I the one for whom hell awaits?

I’ll hold you in my arms
Always and forever
I’ll blow their brains out
Keep our hearts together…

 

Heavy Rain

God is crying
And it’s raining on the empty streets again
Change is dying
And this gun’s the only thing I’ve got
Left to cling to
What’s one more dead
These bodies are the roads that pave my journey now
What’s one more dead
In two minutes I’ll be one step closer to the end

Cannot hide
This monster inside
Too weak to run
What have I become?

The bullet flies
And the rain’s as heavy as my heart
The whole between your eyes
Is nothing to the one in my soul
I’m broken
I’m torn

Close your eyes
Say your goodbyes
What’s meant to be
Is all we’re meant to see

 

The Wormhole Express

Steel rails
Hug the plains of desolation
Cold night
And the fog eats the light
Steam train
Driver knows my name
Take me
Far away from…

Dark years
Pass by outside
Though they were never mine
Faint glow
Of lonely compartments
Befriends the isolated
Wormhole
Where I’m headed is
Where I run from the dead
Coldest
Past behind me but
Colder future ahead

I’ll ride this train
To the growing horizon
This much decided
Before it’d begun
Can’t stop the railcar
From what lies in store
But I’m the one
Who walked through the door

I’ll find my way back home
I’ll write my fate in stone
Now that the past is gone
These future times will leave us cold

 

One Day Soon This Will All Be Gone

The darkness
So needy
My conscience
Betrayed me
My tears grow
So heavy
While vengeance
Is carefree
With arms wide
You greet me,
“In bloodshed
May peace be”
They need you
They need me
I need you
You need me
The promise
You gave me
This servant
To be free
While my hands
Are bloody
You still sleep
So soundly

I’m tired
Of wasting away
(Of bloodshed and broken bones
Of ashes and granite stones)
I’m tired of wasting away…
