Track Name: The Temple
The Temple - Jerry A

Take my hand, now there's no turning back
Walk right up the path into the black
The city down below, shines up so bright
We can do it in the moonlight
Stare into the night, I see the truth
Take a drink and tell me who you've used
The stars up above shine so bright
We can do it in the moonlight
He's the father, the son
The holy ghost, all rolled up into one
This town's souls been sold
This towns views are old
This towns grey and cold
This place to the west
This place I like best
This place reeks of death
I used to think that the hills were full
Of rich little girls and their
Cheap little games, until one night
Something happened, occurred, I cannot forget his name
I'm the seeker, I'm the finder, I'm the cosmic
teeth grinder, my lords calling me home,
And I stand all alone
Track Name: Murderer
Murderer-Tense/Jerry A

My enemy walks in front of me
My friend walks behind me
Death walks beside me
Not ahead, it's just beyond me
Do me a favor, shoot me in the head
I don't want to fuck you
In your death bed
Do me a favor, stab me in my heart
We share a fatal moment
What's the dirty point?
We've always hated, since we were born
The cycle is completed, everything just changed
We've always loved
But we just don't show it
We've proved our lust
Now we must pay for it
Track Name: Marked For Life
Marked For Life - Jerry A

In my dreams of death, you were there
The perfect crime, take my final breath
The noose pulls tight, a perfect fit
Swallow me up with your mistrust
Theres a monster in my mirror
Dragging me through hell and misery
But when I smash that mirror
It sets me free
