Years go by like a silver bullet Six feet deep and I’m left for dead I never wanted to be a burden To anybody that cared I can’t think about that now I’ve got to live for me and mine But the more I wait I can’t help but feeling Positively negative, I’m always so damn negative I’m twenty nine and I can feel the decline From my youthful days to my haunted nights I don’t think I’ll ever have the time To slow on down I wasn’t always wandering around Not distinguishing right from wrong I knew the cost of my silver bullet Now it’s time to pay up, I guess it’s time to pay up I’m twenty nine and I can feel the decline From my youthful days to my haunted nights I don’t think I’ll ever have the time To slow on down I’m not falling down Till that last bottle hits the ground I’m not falling down Till that last bottle hits the ground Hits the ground I’m twenty nine and I can feel the decline From my youthful days to my haunted nights I don’t think I’ll ever have the time To slow on down, I can’t slow down

The lies that I was fed Rattle round in my head It’s hard to sift through the bullshit It took a while to get out But I could tell that it was going south I never meant for it to end up like this It’s Friday night So let’s raise hell And we can get saved on Sunday morning Who’s to say what’s right Sin’s just a made up word To keep us in line I tried to swim but drowned Poured myself out and filled up again I paid the bill but it only left me spent The mistakes that I have made I’ve got no one but myself to blame Whatever hell I’ve found I will be god damned to burn in it It’s Friday night So let’s raise hell And we can get saved on Sunday morning Who’s to say what’s right Sin’s just a made up word To keep us in line After all is said and done I can’t be the only one After all that’s said and done I can’t be the only one I can’t be the only one I can’t be the only one It’s Friday night So let’s raise hell And we can get saved on Sunday morning Who’s to say what’s right Sin’s just a made up word To keep us in line

And I, I’m just doing what I think is right So I can sleep at night Cause I’m more of a ghost than a person now I’ll stick to what I know and roam from town to town Waking up not knowing if today will be my last And you, you wanted us to run away And I’d say that’s my biggest mistake Cause I’m more of a ghost than a person now I’ll stick to what I know and roam from town to town Waking up not knowing if today will be my last And we never got to say goodbye But it’s, it’s ok, I’ve let you down for the last time Cause you deserve better than I could ever give I’m hoping someday you will forgive And think of me fondly from time to time Cause I’m more of a ghost than a person now I’ll stick to what I know and roam from town to town Waking up not knowing if today will be my last

I’ve been alone in these woods For far too long I see the fear in every person I let close enough to see Everyone comes and goes But I remain here still I’m the last of my kind It seems I’m out of time Broken arrows and wanted outlaws Come roaming through these hills Feared by all of humankind I’ve got nothing to leave behind Everyone comes and goes But I remain here still I’m the last of my kind And it seems I’m out of time They came with guns to my home I didn’t see them coming at all I heard the shot, I fell to the ground I can feel my heart slowing down Everyone comes and goes But I remain here still I’m the last of my kind And it seems I’m out of time I can feel my heart slowing down I can feel my heart slowing down I can feel my heart slowing down I can feel my heart slowing
5.
I don’t think I’m the only one That feels this way, way about them This lack of trust is killing me Nobody believes of horrors told which they can’t see Yeah they’re coming Yeah they’re coming for us Yeah they’re coming Yeah they’re coming for us I guess I will be just fine I drink up the loneliness with whiskey and wine Yeah they’re coming Yeah they’re coming for us Yeah they’re coming Yeah they’re coming for us Yeah they’re coming Yeah they’re coming for us Good lord they’re coming Yeah they’re coming for us Courage won’t, it won’t come cheap To block out all, all of these memories Of the abduction and the war Of all the torment that I bore No one believes me anyway They should’ve ended it when they took me away

The man don’t give a damn about me Left here to die alone Trying hard to stay out of fights I’ve been here since 2005 I ain’t saying I shouldn’t do my time But I think I deserve a few more human rights And I can’t change what’s wrong or right I try hard every day to wipe the black spot from my name The man don’t give a damn about me Maybe I deserve the hate I can’t take back what I did But there’s worse than me hollering in these streets I ain’t saying I shouldn’t do my time But I think I deserve a few more human rights And I can’t change what’s wrong or right I try hard every day to wipe the black spot from my name All I got is time All I got is time All I got is time But I’m missing so much All I got is time All I got is time All I got is time But I’m missing so much I ain’t saying I shouldn’t do my time But I think I deserve a few more human rights I can’t change what’s wrong or right I try hard every day to wipe the black spot from my name All I got is time All I got is time All I got is time But I’m missing so much

I think about it every day, I think about it hard Everything that came before, and everything that’s gone I know it’s not good to dwell upon the past But I won’t stop until they’re all lying in the grass I’m not the kind of one to lay down and die Even though I think about it from time to time But I just keep moving on taking it day by day I figure killing’s a good enough reason to stay And I tell myself that I’m just avenging you But I know it’s purely revenge for me Revenge for me Revenge for me I don’t know who I am, look what they made of me I know you don’t feel anything anymore But I can’t stop this hurt that’s been with me Since you’ve been gone And I tell myself that I’m just avenging you But I know it’s purely revenge for And I tell myself that I’m just avenging you But I know it’s purely revenge for me Revenge for me Revenge for me

If I’ve loved too little If I know how, If I knew why If my demons weren’t so kind I know if I take too long I’ll end up all alone I’ll tell it to you straight Do not resuscitate Blame it all on my past mistakes Oh hell, I can’t wait Oh I cannot wait If I was born with a curse If I knew who, If I knew why If my friends weren’t so blind I know it won’t be long Until I end up all alone I’ll tell it to you straight Do not resuscitate Blame it all on my past mistakes Oh hell, I can’t wait Oh I cannot wait I never wanted this for you I never wanted this for you I never wanted this for you I never wanted this for you I’ll tell it to you straight Do not resuscitate Blame it all on my past mistakes Oh hell, I can’t wait Oh I cannot wait

I came up from Belfast With the blood of a copper still on my boots To say he had it coming Would be an understatement I couldn’t let him get away with it Not after what he did I have to keep moving on Because it won’t be long Before they find me and take me to the hangman’s noose I have to keep running like a dog on the loose I came down from Glasgow With a new name on my lips Staying out of trouble The best I could I’m paranoid of every person I meet I’ll never be free of the anxiety I have to keep moving on Because it won’t be long Before they find me and take me to the hangman’s noose I have to keep running like a dog on the loose I have to keep moving on Because it won’t be long Before they find me and take me to the hangman’s noose I have to keep running like a dog on the loose Before they find me and take me to the hangman’s noose I have to keep running like a dog on the loose

The demons come around in the day Whispering things that we shouldn’t do or say And the angels only do what they’re told How could they ever be so bold And I love you more now than before As your dreams fill up the night sky And the moon whispers a reply You paint while I play my guitar And write another sad song And I love you more now than before Ten years down and here’s to ten more I still wonder why you haven’t walked out the door I choose to love you every single day And I try and love you in every single way And I love you more now than before Yes I love you more now than before

I woke up with the sun in my eyes The smouldering fire to keep me warm Days turned to weeks and months to years In this cold, cold world I’m looking for you And I’m not coming through Cause the devil calls on me Two or Three times a week And I’m falling from grace There’s not a day goes by that you don’t cross my mind Since they took you away But I know the law will be no help For someone like me I’m looking for you And I’m not coming through Cause the devil calls on me Two or Three times a week And I’m falling from grace Yes I’ve fallen from grace I’m looking for you And I’m not coming through Cause the devil calls on me Two or Three times a week And I’m falling from grace I said I’m falling from grace
