LyricsEdit

Kill for kill
Eye for eye
Blood for blood
It's time to die
Retribution tastes so sweet

Gone's the life
That he gave
Now revenge is all I crave
Retaliation's soon complete

I was nowhere
I had no one
I felt nothing
Lost without a voice and on my own

Then a candle's flame
Brought a brand new name
But now you've stolen everything
and I'm all alone

I had one thing
And you've taken it from me
A single light
A single friend
But you made that end

There was one thing
To help escape the misery
And now it's all disarrayed
You took my whole life away
You sent me back to nothing
Now you'll pay

Pay

Life for life
Death for death
Tit for tat
Just one last breath
Absolution's nowhere near

Cue the scene
Now it's time
Reparation for your crime
Atonement day is finally here

I had waited for this meeting
For this moment
Dreamed about the day
I'd make you crawl

What a sweet release
When you rest in peace
Vengeance, justice, finally mine
And I'll watch you fall

I had one thing
And you've taken it from me
A single light
A single friend
But you made that end

There was one thing
To help escape the misery
And now it's all disarrayed
You took my whole life away
You sent me back to nothing
Now you'll pay the price

You destroyed my life
After years of suffering
Finally had a place to go

But not anymore
And now it's war
And there won't be peace
'Til I get what I came for

I had one thing
And you've taken it from me
A single light
A single friend
But you made that end

There was one thing
(One thing)
To help escape the misery
And now it's all disarrayed
(now it's all)
You took my whole life away
You sent me back to nothing
Now you'll pay

Now you'll
Pay

Kill for kill
Eye for eye
Blood for blood
It's time to die
Retribution tastes so sweet

Gone's the life
That he gave
Now revenge is all I crave
Retaliation's soon complete

I had one thing
And you've taken it from me
A single light
A single friend
But you made that end

There was one thing
To help escape the misery
And now it's all disarrayed
You took my whole life away
You sent me back to nothing
Now you'll pay

Pay
