Track Name: Sinners In The Hands Of Angry God
I've been waiting for this storm to pass
Counting the grains in the hourglass
And i have waited for so long
That my eyes have turned white

Secluded by choice
I wait for simpler times
not knowing
that those time have passed
Word by word,
Blow by blow
Hoping that finally
They will even the score
Someone will even the score
We are led to believe
That we are nothing more
than sinners in the hands of angry god

I've been waiting for this storm to pass
Counting the grains in the hourglass
And i have waited for so long
That my eyes have turned white
I've been waiting for this storm to pass
Counting the grains in the hourglass
And i have counted for so long
That i'm afriad to leave home

While you kneel, with your head pointing mekka
Your brethren is about to meet their maker
While you state your confession
to a childless man
Those with crosses on their chest
Send your son to a foreign land

we are led to believe
That we are nothing more
we are the sinners in the hands of angry god
Track Name: One Way To Go
All the things in life that are there to adore
Lost their charm,
all I wish is to go.

The shit that floods my day
From every medium, every corner
This chaos pouring down like rain
I need to swipe that smile away
Sticks and stones still break my bones
And the words are getting bolder
Everything that does not kill me
no longer makes me stronger

Can we
lock up
our dreams and our hopes
Can we
Shut off
All the news from the world

Just for one minute, just one day
Lock our homes throw the keys away
Walk out that door,
And lose our way

High time to stray
From the path that looks so safe
Since it offers decay
I leave the vermin to this plague

One way to go
keep moving forward on and on
Every place is like home
When you have nowhere else to go

One way to go
shut the door and cut the cord
Every place is like home
When all you can do is roam
Track Name: Paypal Salvation
There is a price for your soul
You already paid your weight in gold

There is a fee for everyone who joins
Conviction’s sound is a rain of coins
‘Cause Greed is good and cash is king
God will sell you almost any fucking thing

Salvation bought by credit cards
While your Family waits at home and starves

Redemption paid by check
You managed to bribe your regret

White choker, a sign of those in need
Of fancy cars and such a hefty bling
With their arms so deep in your pocket
That you can be sure you just felt the touch of god

Salvation bought by credit cards
While your Family waits at home and starves
Redemption paid by check
You managed to bribe your regret

Make no mistake
The shepherd reaps
What is in his flock’s hands
Make no mistake
from your crops he is corpulent
And you bend your back
Over the land you rent
Track Name: Discouraged
I fail every single day
To call myself by own full name
I praise how I let down
My childhood self, and I don't know how
but I got lost

I’ve been discouraged since I don’t know when
For last few years I reinforced my shame
I pray, today, to end the blame
I chain, myself, to one fixed way

Forget, all the things you planned
Regret, for every choice you made
Compelled, to find one right way
You’ve been misled by your choice of fate
And now you’re lost

I’ve been discouraged since I don’t know when
For last few years I reinforced my shame
I pray, today, to end the blame
I chain, myself, to one fixed way

I get lost,
every single day,
then I get found,
then you leave me be,
then I get lost,
and I root for the day
I won’t get found,
and stop this cliche
