about

a track from our upcoming project, It Happens to the Best of Us.

lyrics

the laws you set will cut ties
the scars you get are from lies
the marks you make are sacred
the time you waste is payment
i'm ready to play with the radio today
got velocity's smile it'll be okay
but the creeping thoughts are gonna find a way
gonna shed my grave and masquerade my fate

shake me down from the bottom of the well
where you ask i'm never gonna tell
lies, lies, lies, i'm only asking for the truth
you've crossed this line and now i'm gonna tell you

the karma always seeks truth
but it never happens to you
i won't compile all the trash
but i know i can scream and thrash
i see through all of your shit
you always try to hide it
but now i'm fully aware
you put me through the despair
I got two wishes, and one is the truth
And the other one's gonna be what happens to you
'cause the time you made me fight through the night
tells me i can declare war on sight
the bottom of the bottle will be the best thing
I ever have had to test me
now you're the deer in headlights
and i've got you in my sights

shake me down from the bottom of the well
where you ask i'm never gonna tell
lies, lies, lies, i'm only asking for the truth
you've crossed this line and now i'm gonna tell you
