Track Name: Big Train
BIG TRAIN Sitting in silence Waiting for a sound Big Train is coming I got my ear to the ground It might show up tomorrow It might show up today But the Big Train is comin‘ And it’s headin your way All you do is shake.

Wont have a conductor No gandys in sight But the Big Train is comin’ You need to see the light It might show up tomorrow It might show up today But the Big Train is comin‘ And its headin’ your way All you do is shake
Track Name: Hey Dad
HEY DAD

Hey Dad were you thinking of me, when you bought that strap
Or was it simply, on a whim
Hey Dad was it pleasure you’d feel, when you saw the welts
That you left, on my skin

Hey Dad were you thinkin' of me, when your hands were around my throat
Something that still seems surreal
Hey Dad, won’t you stay anyway, I won’t cry anymore
I guess your feelin' kind of ill

HEY DAD, why’d you have to treat me, this way
HEY DAD, I really need to know


Hey Dad, you know you’re leaving here soon
But I’ll stay here, by your side
Hey Dad, I’m just sorry not mad, cause of the pain you held, inside
Hey Dad, that look on your face, 
It reminds me, way back of me
Hey Dad, I know you feel out of place
You’re just a little boy, like me

HEY DAD, why’d you have to treat me, this way
HEY DAD, I really need to know
Track Name: Al Shaitan
AL SHAITAN


As a government, you have been at the forefront of the aggression towards the Islamic State.
You have plotted against us, and gone far out of your way to find reasons to interfere in our affairs
Today, your military air force is attacking us daily in Iraq
Your strikes have cause casualties amongst Muslims
You are no longer fighting an insurgency, we are an Islamic bond,
And a state, that has been accepted by a large number of Muslims worldwide
So effectively, any aggression towards the Islamic state, is an aggression towards Muslims from all walks of life
Who have accepted the Islamic caliphate


I travel in the nighttime 
Among the innocent cries
I’ll just be waiting for the right time
To see the fear in your eyes

Al Shaitan
Al Shaitan

When its time to come and see you
I’ll blow in like the wind
You’ll never know that I am watching
Its time to pay for your sins

Al Shaitan
Al Shaitan

And when I know that you can feel me
The color drains from your face
You know Al Shaitan’s here to see you
I found you in your hiding place

Stay low, go fast, shoot first, die last
One shot, one kill, not luck, all skill
Track Name: My Perfect Girl
MY PERFECT GIRL

I am the face, you won’t remember
You wouldn’t take the time, to know my name
I am the ultimate pretender
And I got my eye on you

I didn’t need a Mercedes
Or travel around the world
I always seemed to find my perfect girl

Maybe I’m a little bit crazy
But baby you’re just naive
Cause once you’re in my arms
You will never leave

You know, You make me feel connected
Sometimes I’m angry when I feel this way
And I know, this seems so unexpected
Just relax, and pray

I didn’t need a Mercedes
Or travel around the world
I always seemed to find my perfect girl

Maybe I’m a little bit crazy
But baby you’re just naive
Cause once you’re in my arms
You will never leave

Sucking the poison from my teeth
While I wipe the sleep from my eyes
I drag my hand across the window, to watch the girls go by

This room it smells like piss, I don’t care anymore
The only thing I care about is getting you behind the door

You won’t be the first, you won’t be the last
I’m the man of your future, I’ll try and make it fast
I’ll do the best I can to keep you nice and clean
Then continue my life, as a killing machine
Track Name: Etiene
ETIENE

Did you know that i was so young ?
And did you know that I saw your son ?
When did you know, you’d come back again ?
And did you know, that I’d be your friend ?

There’s mom and dad, holding each other tight
It seems so strange, cause all I see them do is fight
The neighbor lady, ran through our yard and she screamed

Yes I knew you were young
I knew you saw my son
I know I’d come back again
I knew that you’d be my friend, my friend

Down at the church, they said, that the preacher cried
I guess its proof, that nobody really wants to die
The sky is black, dotted by these silver machines

Etiene, it didn’t have to end this way
Etiene, you said that things would be ok
Track Name: The Great Deceiver
THE GREAT DECEIVER

Welcome to my place of cleansing
Bring your friends in, come inside
You can share your deepest secrets
I will keep them, if you tythe

Disregard these pagan idols
They are vital in our home
Genuflect and light a candle
As they say, its when in rome

I am the Great Deceiver
Nipping at your heels
And playing with your heart

I am the make believer 
Messin with your mind
Tearing you apart
(repeat)
Track Name: Don't Want To Feel This Way
DON’T WANT TO FEEL THIS WAY

Nobody could - I could never
Even begin to describe to you
How bad I feel about myself.

Like, I can’t even walk out of my house

I would rather anything than to have this.

Don’t want to feel this way
Don’t want to feel this way
Don’t want to feel this way
Don’t want to feel this way
Again, again. (repeat twice)

I don’t wanna be near anyone anymore
I don’t want anybody to see me
How I am now
Just so embarrassing
So ashamed of myself

And I’m like thinkin’
Like, you know
I feel like, well, ok, 
Maybe I was mean to this person
Or maybe that I was mean to that person
But I don’t 
Can’t think of anything I did
That bad, that I, that God would make me have this

I can never describe to you how painful it is to have this

So there you go everybody
The world of a fucking panic disorder
That’s killing me

Don’t want to feel this way
Don’t want to feel this way
Don’t want to feel this way
Don’t want to feel this way
Again, again. (repeat three times)

I can’t believe that this is my life

I can never describe to you how painful it is to have this
Track Name: Just Breathe
JUST BREATHE

All thoughts have left my head
I’m standing here, thinking of nothing
The rush inside my brain
The thoughts of dread
My private suffering

Breathe, Just Breathe
Breathe, Just Breath

And as I recognize
The gaze that takes my eyes
I see nothing

I’m powerless to what you bring
My sanity is just the thing
I try and hold on to
The me I use to be

Breathe, Just Breathe
Breathe, Just Breathe
Track Name: Silent Bird
SILENT BIRD

She sings just like a bird
I’ve seen you make her cry
I’ve listened to your words
Why won’t you help her fly

She lives her life in vain
You tell us who you know
And as she fights her pain
You’re fine with status quo’


Silent Bird, sing a song for me
Silent Bird, fly away, be free

Who is it 
It’s me

Silent Bird, sing a song for me
Silent Bird, spread your wings, be free

Silent bird, sing a song for me
Silent bird, fly away, be free
Track Name: Enoch
ENOCH

And it came to pass
When the children of men had multiplied
That in those days were born unto them
Beautiful and comely daughters

And the angels, the children from the heavens
Saw and lusted after them
And said to one another
Come, let us choose us wives
From among the children of men
And beget us children

Just a simple guy
Had a simple life
Had a lot of friends
Didn’t have a wife

I prayed to myself
I stayed to myself
Never really bothered no one

The dreams they came most every night
They pulled me towards the glowing light
He showed me everything so clear

Now all I want to do is sleep

Samyaza your at fault
For causing so much pain
You had everything
With even more to gain

Now Azazel wants help
Should have stayed to himself
And never really bothered no one

But you led them astray
There’s a price you must pay
And now, The Watchers should be watching

The dreams they came most every night
They pulled me towards the glowing light
He showed me everything so clear

Now all I want to do is sleep


I wrote out your petition
And in my vision, it appeared thus
That your petition will not be granted unto you
Throughout all the days of eternity
And that judgement is finally passed upon you
Yea, your petition will not be granted unto you
And from henceforth, you shall not ascend into heaven unto all eternity
And in bonds of the earth, the decree has gone forth to bind you for all the days of the world
Track Name: What Chu Do
WHAT CHU DO

Let your life, be your, example

Today is not just another day
It’s an opportunity, to do what you say

What Chu Do
What Chu do with your life

What Chu Do
Whats chu do with your life

Its up to you
Just what chu do
Its up to you

Wasted days, wasted nights
You’ve lost the energy to get up and fight

To all my friends from around the globe
I’m being straight with you 
I’ve felt this heavy load

You can look for pity
You can live with shame
Or you can look around for someone to blame

You can look for pity
You can live for shame
Or you can look around for someone to blame
