"Throw me to the wolves, and I'll return leading the pack."- Unknown

"Never moon a werewolf." -Mike Binder


Through of all my life,
Waiting for a second chance,
A beacon of light for me,
There is always a reason
Making me not deserving it.
Crimson lament drips from my veins,
Maybe I will find my grave tonight,
With my heart to finally get some rest
A lasting taste of metal.

Oh, I am in Death’s arms,
Sleeping in this cold, isolated hotel room,
My heart weighted by this hopelessness.
I am buried under the dump
Of my silent suffering.
Oh, I am in Death’s arms,
May the angels try to give me some comfort here.

No matter hard I try,
All bring me down to my knees,
Spit and slaps on my path.
Knives stabbing for my back,
The vultures circling me,
Waiting for me to become their meal.
But with my heart to finally get some rest,
A lasting taste of metal.

Oh, I’m in Death’s arms,
Sleeping in this cold, isolated hotel room,
My heart weighted by this hopelessness,
I am buried under the dump
Of my silent suffering.
Oh, I am in Death’s arms,
May the angels try to give me some comfort here.

Oh, I am in Death’s arms,
May the angels try to give me some comfort here.

"Let us go then, you and I/When the evening is spread out against the sky/Like a patient etherized upon a table/Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets/The muttering retreats/Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels/And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells/Streets that follow like a tedious argument/Of insidious intent/To lead you to an overwhelming question .../Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”/Let us go and make our visit."

Wow this is great, i love it!
