Hello to you my old friend Can you help me? I am lost I need you to show me the way And I don't care the cost Imbue me with your strength That soothing warmth from deep inside Just let me lose myself Sit back, enjoy the ride When life's too much You're always there Help me forget Those things that I just cannot bear You free me from My self-forged chains And let me feel That I am human again Hello again my old friend It hasn't been too long Was with you just last night but Still my need for you is strong You're always there for me when I'm feeling down And when I am with you You'll never see me frown Need to escape You'll always help Me to forget My wretched self You take control Make a man of me But do you really Set me free? Guzzle down the water of life Free myself from daily strife Forget the things I cannot change No thought to tomorrow's pain Raging on throughout the night Continuing through morning's light When I stop, I don't recall The things that I have done at all
Always The same Faces With no names Same place Same town Same thoughts Same frown Same shit No change Nothing new Nothing strange So tired Of this Endless World of shit Seeping through the edges The poison takes a hold Despair and paranoia Begin to take control No hope for the future I'm dwelling in the past How does melancholy Always creep up so fast? Can't pretend it's all OK Can't do it any more I try to forget but I Can't help keeping score Always I'm the loser Rejected like a freak Always thinking too much Never knowing what I seek I must break free From this mentality Death of all thought Not what I sought Monotony Consuming me Nothing is left Forlorn, bereft
Always marching on Never time for sleep No time for wounds to heal As the sores begin to weep There's no safety here Nowhere for us to hide Soon they will catch up with us Swept away on the green tide We fought them for our homes That they might not burn to the ground We fought them for our wives That they might not be stripped and bound We fought them for our children That they might not be cooked and eaten We fought them for our lands my friends But hard though we tried, we were beaten Weapons, we had many They did us little good Axes, swords and spears Not one of us understood They are not like men They care not for their lives To fight is all, demise nothing When the green blood flows deep inside In the heart of the wood we made our camp Under the shade of the sacred tree Surely the gods would ensure our safety? It all seemed so clear to me They fell upon us as we slept Most too tired to even fight Trusting in the old faith To keep us safe through the night The strong they slaughtered first Decapitated where they stood By axes of the blackest iron Their blood despoiling the sacred wood Arrows tipped with barbs Fall like rain from the sky As I watch my kinsmen slaughtered I know this is my time to die Hiding deep in a pile of corpses Out from under the carrion i crawl All are dead, my clan, my kinfolk Mutilated one and all Bellies are split open With entrails flowing out Heads are all smashed in Brains are gone down an orkish snout Warriors' manhoods taken Women's loins are rent Save of course for the fairest Now chained in the chieftain's tent On this day I swear By the souls of the departed I will make the greenskins rue The day their brutal campaign started
