I made a deal with the devil

So I lost track of my soul on the run

Nothing is real

The order is rapidly fading

Now I'm coming home

I tried to howl at the moon

But now I don't even make a sound

Please just let me breakdown

I'm drenched to the bone

And there's a war outside and it's raging

Death might just roll through town

Home is not the same, the times they are changing

Deep inside I know, time is just a melody

You can't start wishing if you can't let go

I have to see what there is to see

Because I can't stop now, please don't breakdown

Don't stand in the doorway

Keep your eyes wide the chance won't come again

Leap into the glorified dirt

Take your soul and leave your body for dead

Don't criticize what you can't understand..
