Track Name: The Devil As My Witness
Opening statement:

"Bare witness
This is the last tome
The days are numbered
Tis our final hour..."

The latest night
The darkest hour
My home is always near
Our sweetness has gone sour
A little late for gratitude
You had none anyway
But I'm still shining on
Love to say and it's better this way

You shall never return...

The blues has got me going
The past has got me drinking
Sure enough I'll never walk a straight path
The past has told before
Riding toward a sunset
The wheels are still turning
What's said is said
Now I look back and see you burning

Ch:
With the devil as my witness
You shall never return
The gates are closed and I'm done with you
And I hate goddamn reruns!

With the devil as my witness
You shall not have a place
In this mind nor in this heart
I don't run around in goddamn circles!

Time held nothing for you
These pictures are frozen failures
Don't miss a damn thing baby
To hell with you, fucking liar!
Track Name: You Suck
I remember a time
It was worth to be with you
Had some laughs, had some drinks
But our time has taken a turn for the worst
Now the memories are fading
And I'm laughing on my own
But I'm content and inspired
To move away and leave this hell with you

Ch:
You suck!
And I don't give a fuck
You suck!
And you're shit out of luck

Is it cause I drink?
Is it cause you're stoned?
Well excuses are all lies
Sick & tired of hearing them
Close to the edge
Close to the line
Your purpose here is done
Still coughing up your time
You hate the way I am
I hate your guts too!
There are always two sides
But the problem still is you

Ch:
You suck!
And I don't give a fuck
You suck!
Guess you're shit out of luck

Words fail
That's why they're never spoken by me
You're the failure here
As I keep my cool
No one's ever worth it
When it comes down to this
Disappointment and lies
Is all that remains
Track Name: Assholes & Shitheads
It's the time of the season
For assholes yes indeed
They siphon off your blood
Back-stab you til your numb
Don't fall for their lies
Don't fall for their shit
Cursed be they, beyond the rotten
Root them out
Let the cleansing begin

Then you have these shitheads
Stinking up the place
Just don't know when to shut up
Their ignorance betrays them
You don't have the answer
Your knowledge (is) distorted
So please stop...
Shitting all over the place!

Ch:
Beware of the vultures
They will prey on you
Your fucking game is over...
Time to punch your lights out
Track Name: You Never Knew Me
You may have fooled the others
But you did not fool me
All the lies you've bottled up
Will cater to your disease
How long til you clean up the mess?
Or didn't it ever occur to you?
Too busy filling time with words
Words that never became deeds

Ch:
The signs were already there
I should've realised it then
A moment of truth has arrived (again)
But this ain't no prolonged goodbye

Your life was never worth a fight
The only fight you had, you picked yourself
And it sucks to be around a know-it-all
No proof, just words
Words that never follow up...

Ch:

Time has told it's tale
Some things last but most don't
Too bad, so sad, bye bye
I'll get along just fine
And there's no need
For any kind of goodbye
Track Name: Gone To Waste
I sit here now all alone
With my thoughts
I open up a can of beer
And relive it all
Times of fun, times of shit
We have been through
It's all the same now to me
Gone and over

Ch:
Seems like everything
Has gone to waste again
It's always a game
Yeah it's always a shame

It's a shame. it's a lesson
There's just not a thing
That can last as long
As the rivers we've sailed
So many times, so many years
We should have been dead long ago,
We might as well have
For now things are as dead as we

Ch:

Choose not for them
But choose for yourself
You're the only one
You can depend on
Track Name: Never Forgive, Never Forget
Now it's written in stone
There's no such thing as a road back
The words, you said 'em
The deeds, you did 'em
It was a sign of the road ahead
Darkness covers our past
Yeah, the lines have thinned out
The words, you smoked 'em
The deeds, I drank 'em
And now there's no way out

Ch:
Never forgive, never forget
Destruction and lies
Abuse and sin
I will not forgive those days

Some might say I have to forget
Thank hell someday I will!
But the wounds have deepened now
There was no time for that scar to heal
Lives are left, assholes bereft
This suits me just fine
No one there you can call a friend
Don't you know I hate to waste my goddamn time?!

Ch:
Never forgive, never forget
Destruction and lies
Abuse and sin
I will not forget those days

Everything that has been sewn
Had some worth to be reaped (then)
But time flew by and so did we
I do not forgive, I do not forget
Yet I do not regret those days

Hail to the whore of habit.
Track Name: Your Lies Made You What You Are
Sometimes you walk the line
And keep distant those who fall
Between the cracks so much unaware,
Within their lies
Some just don't understand
Some just lose their mind
Sometimes it's better not to know
What lies beneath

For everything you have an answer
But where is yours now?
The wait is over, yeah it's time
To bury you and your lies

Tell me, where does your heart lie?
Where do cold winds blow...?
Your love has done nothing but fail
Who do you think you're fooling?

Life is your punishment
Death would be a reward
The price, you'll pay it
No doubt about it
It's written, it's done

Ch:

I tell you it's the end my friend
No future for us round the bend
Save your shit for those unaware
Your lies made you what you are today
Now beware!

(Bridge part dedicated to the almighty Black Sabbath. (As if you didn't notice!)
Track Name: You Owe Everyone Everything
Seems like everytime
You've pushed the bounderies of this ship
Now it's sure to sink
It didn't matter to you
As long as you had your fix
It's a sign of the habit
That brought you down;
A new song unsung
The lifeboat has got you thinking
(But) sooner or later
You're drowning just the same

Ch:
You owe everyone
Everything and more
A balance not weighed out
And a bar that's always rising

Tip the scales of time
You wander towards the ocean's pit
Many lives on that line
Inhale, as you shoot the shit
Can't give it much more credit
You're waging on the minus
No one ever asked anything in return
But you never gave some back

Ch:
You owe everyone
Everything and more
A balance not weighed out
And a bar that just keeps rising
Track Name: Last Round
I drink, I smoke
I'm sitting at the bar
Listening to my favorite song
No, you can't put me down (anymore)
I'm writhing in my safe place
Disaffected by your crap
And soon I won't remember
A single thing...

Ch:
Here is the truth
I never liked you
No, I didn't, no how
The last round's on the table
This time you pay the bill

It's time to close our eyes
I'm shifting left and right while standing still
Yeah, we had our fill
A little bit more than last time
That's how the story goes
The lights went on
And we were gone
So little left to talk about
While smoking on our way back home

Ch;
Here's a little truth for you...

I ran out, I'm full
Didn't care much for this place
Our roads have seperated
But where we were going
We didn't need any goddamn roads
Track Name: Gone To Waste (Alt. Version)
I sit here now all alone
With my thoughts
I open up a can of beer
And relive it all
Times of fun, times of shit
We have been through
It's all the same now to me
Gone and over

Ch:
Seems like everything
Has gone to waste again
It's always a game
Yeah it's always a shame

It's a shame. it's a lesson
There's just not a thing
That can last as long
As the rivers we've sailed
So many times, so many years
We should have been dead long ago,
We might as well have
For now things are as dead as we

Ch:

Choose not for them
But choose for yourself
You're the only one
You can depend on
