Lyrics

Lucifer


I want him to meet his maker
I used to be a lover, now I'm a hater
my passion to succeed is watching him bleed
oh lord, what have become of me?

once upon a time, I was a fool
too cool for school, gangster cruel
blood in, blood out
pull the trigger, no doubt
lucky motherfucker
you don't know what I'd do to you

I used to kick it with Lucifer
& he still lingers in the dark
oh Lucifer, you better watch out

the evil within has never been greater
my soul has been seized and he's the dictator
I've been dragged through the mud
I can still taste the blood
oh lord, what have become of me?

once upon a time, I was a fool
too cool for school, gangster cruel
blood in, blood out
pull the trigger, no doubt
lucky motherfucker
you don't know what I'd do to you

I used to kick it with Lucifer
& he still lingers in the dark
oh Lucifer, you better watch out

sometimes I feel like seeking him down
just for the hell of it
look for his face around town
smack, smack - just a bit
lucky motherfucker got away with my cash
I built you up and Imma tear you down
down, just like that

once upon a time, I was a fool
too cool for school, gangster cruel
blood in, blood out
pull the trigger, no doubt
lucky motherfucker
you don't know what I'd do to you

I used to kick it with Lucifer
& he still lingers in the dark
oh Lucifer, you better watch out

even the devil's been an angel

oh Lucifer, you better watch out

Boys Don't Cry


tell me why you're running from me
is it love or money?
tell me why you shot right at me
can't you see I'm happy?
is it love or money?

like AK47 with words, semi-automatic
(shoot, shoot) where it hurts
right in the bulls-eye
man up, man up
boys don't cry

na na, boys don't cry

my best friends turned to demons
family left me beaten
now was that love or money?
you won't believe where I found freedom
on the bottom of the sea and
without love or money

like AK47 with words, semi-automatic
(shoot, shoot) where it hurts
right in the bulls-eye
man up, man up
boys don't cry

na na, boys don't cry

yo, I forgive you for myself
be the victim or the victor, blame nobody else
yeah, I needed your help
but you chose a different road
so let the story be told
see Krypton almost killed me
I thought I was superman
fighting with the legion of heroes by my side
but what a fucking lie
brother baled, others stole
when it came down to the wire I was all alone
bankrupt and broken
yeah, XOV became my last token
yeah, so fuck all of y'all
I forgive you for myself
be the victim or the victor
blame nobody else

like AK47 with words, semi-automatic
(shoot, shoot) where it hurts
right in the bulls-eye
man up, man up
boys don't cry

na na, boys don't cry

be the victim or the victor
blame nobody else

boys don't cry

Animal


I watch you like
you're mine tonight
I want it all
do you bite?
well, so do I
yeah I'm an animal

you be the prey and I'll be the predator
I want it all
I can't be tamed, I'm a cold blood killer
with you I'm an animal

so gimme hard, gimme loud, gimme passionate
show me your animal
so gimme raw, gimme rough, gimme all of it
show me your animal

oh, your animal

it's dinner time
no wine and dine
just take it off
oh, what a sight
feed my appetite
yeah I'm an animal

you be the prey and I'll be the predator
I want it all
I can't be tamed, I'm a cold blood killer
with you I'm an animal

so gimme hard, gimme loud, gimme passionate
show me your animal
so gimme raw, gimme rough, gimme all of it
show me your animal

oh, your animal

you be the prey and I'll be the predator
I want it all
I can't be tamed, I'm a cold blood killer
with you I'm an animal

so gimme hard, gimme loud, gimme passionate
show me your animal
so gimme raw, gimme rough, gimme all of it
show me your animal

oh, your animal

Blood Honey


tell me what you want from me
I don't want your blood, honey
you know what you are to me?
nothing but spilled blood, honey

oh, oh

with you I felt it, this euphoria
I saw the peaks of my utopia
we talked about a life in Saigon
to leave it all and move to the sun

but you broke our code of honor
you set fire to my Nirvana
now you want me back again
but I don't wanna get even

tell me what you want from me
I don't want your blood, honey
you know what you are to me?
nothing but spilled blood, honey

oh, oh

there was a time I wanted vengeance
but staying mad and hurt makes no sense
I've even thought about forgiveness
to let it go without regrets

but you broke our code of honor
you set fire to my nirvana
now you want me back again
but I don't wanna get even

tell me what you want from me
I don't want your blood, honey
you know what you are to me?
nothing but spilled blood, honey

oh, oh

uh, I'm fighting for freedom
uh, I'm at war with the demon
uh, I wanna let shit go but no
he won't let me grow up

tell me what you want from me
I don't want your blood, honey
you know what you are to me?
nothing but spilled blood, honey

oh, oh

Fireman


I can't make out what you're saying now
all I hear is someone shouting loud
throwing things like they're worth nothing
I can tell you've taken something
look into my eyes

you're pouring gasoline on the flames
and we'll never be the same
cause I can't take it
try to understand

you're sick of burning and I'm done with being your fireman

so this is how you waste a life?
chasing a wave, racing the tide
are we meant to kiss without a smile?
thinking what's true, speaking what's lie

I'm pouring gasoline on the flames
cause we'll never be the same
I can't take it
try to understand

you're sick of burning and I'm done with being your fireman

everyone needs a hero
but you and I can't be saved

you're sick of burning and I'm done with being your fireman

Ku Klux Klan


no hate can tear me down
keep kicking while I'm on the ground
I swear I will have my vengeance
can't wait til I break your defence

gang up, gang up, have your moment of euphoria
I wish you luck, I'll come back with a mafia
how does my blood taste?
show your face

Ku Klux Klan

the anger's boiling over now
no, no therapy, I'm fine without
might loose it if you dare to tempt me
moving on but my mercy's empty

gang up, gang up, have your moment of euphoria
I wish you luck, I'll come back with a mafia
how does my blood taste?
show your face

Ku Klux Klan

fucking cowards
fucking cowards
fight man on man
I see you hiding like the Ku Klux Klan

gang up, gang up, have your moment of euphoria
I wish you luck, I'll come back with a mafia
how does my blood taste?
show your face

Ku Klux Klan
