    The Meeting With The Grim Reaper.

    The Grim Reaper said the time is near.
    To go back in time to see and to hear.
    All the acts you have committed.
    All the times you should have quitted.

    You'll see how your life could have changed.
    If all those acts were rearranged.
    You could have been rich the rest of your life.
    You could have had a mansion and a beautiful wife.

    That beautiful life you'll never see.
    Because of the way you chose to be.
    I looked at the Reaper and said you're a discrace.
    Take your hocus pocus and get out of my face.

    I've survived death and I've come back to live.
    And I've taken everything this worlds had to give.
    I've done my time now leave me alone.
    And don't bother me again until my names on a stone.

    You better leave right now Reaper before things get real bad.
    You're pissing me off you don't want to make me mad.
    I'll tear you to pieces and torture your soul.
    I'll throw you in the fire and turn you to coal.

    I am pure evil, Ghostboy is my name.
    And if you don't know this then stay out of the game.
    Now you're on my turf so watch what you say.
    Because some of my boys might take it the wrong way.

    Well the Reaper got scared and vanished with smoke.
    I picked up my blunt and I took one last toke.
    I looked at my boys and said he'll never come back.
    Because his soul is gray and mine's pure black.

    Why Did You Play With My Fire?
    Yes Tell Me Why
    Did You Set Me A Light?
    I Never Wanted To Fight
    Don’t Shoot The Messenger
    That’s An Old Mistake
    But You’ve Given
    More Than I Can Take

    Why Did You Play With Your Fire?
    Yeah Tell Me Why Did You Set Yourself A Light?
    I’m Out Of Water
    All Out Of That Type Of Water
    Now You’re Going To Burn
    And You Can’t Even Swim Yet
    Forget About Me
    Because I’ve Forgotten About You

    I Have Many Friends
    Even In A Dark Storm
    Yes, Right Through The Storm
    Don’t Need Your Words
    Don’t Need Your Care
    I Don’t Even Need Your Stare
    Just Don’t Need You At All
    Because You’re About To Fall

    I’m Going To
    Bring The Whole Thing Down
    Your Whole System Down
    Yeah I’m Bringing
    The Whole House Down
    The Whole, Yeah Even The Burning Flag
    Bring This House Down

    I Didn’t Start This War,
    But It’s Already Ended
    For You Should
    Have Opened Your Eyes
    As You Didn’t Even Know It
    Know That
    It Was Always In My Bag

    We Ain’t Scared Of Any Truth
    We Ain’t Scared Of Your Monkey Police
    Ain’t Scared Of Your Media
    Yeah We're Just Not Scared
    Of Monkeys
    Or Any Dark Charades
    Like You, Even If You're In The Sun
    Watch The Dominoes Fall
    One By One
    Until They Destroy Your Fun

    We All Gave You A Chance
    A Chance To Back Away
    But No Real Listening
    On Your End
    I’m Afraid, So I’m
    Gunna Bring The Whole Lot Down
    Today, Not Tomorrow
    – The House Is Down

    I’m Not Scared Of Your Drugs
    I’m Not Scared Of Your Hugs
    Not Scared Of Your Head
    Nothing Left In There
    Nothing Left To Be Said
    Not Scared Of Anything
    Cause I’m Dead To You –
    And Always Have Been
    You Just Got No F$%#ING Idea
    What I’ve Seen

    Are You A Puppet?
    Are You A Muppet?

    Which One Is It - Cause
    I Can Still See Those Skeletons
    Falling Out Of Your Closet
    Even Out Of Your Drawer
    While The Monkey Is Still Latched
    Tight, Watch Out For His Bite
    Latched Right On To Your Back
    And I Bet You, - You Are Sore

    The House Is Down
    Your House Is Down
    Which One Is It?
    Cause I Don’t Really Care If
    This Song’s
    Not A Hit
    Cause This Isn’t Music
    And I’m Not A Band
    Just Five Middle Fingers
    On My Mother F%$#@ING Hand

    No One Can Save Me
    The Calm Is Still Coming
    But I’d Rather Keep Running Away
    It’s Not So Simple
    To Be The Hero
    When I’m Just A Simple Man

    Then I Look To The Sky
    And Hear How It Chimes
    Yeah See How It Shines
    There’s Gotta Be Something For Me
    I Think The Reason We Cry
    Is When We Don’t Live – And Then We Just Die
    Yeah Just Let Us Live Our Life
    Let Us Live
    Just Let Us Die
    Our Own Way

    In Our Beginning, We Were Just Singing
    Yes This Was Never Your World
    And I Didn’t Mean To
    Take Your Angel Away
    Don’t Blame Yourself
    Yeah Don’t Hurt Yourself
    To Make Everyone Pay
    Just To Make Everybody Pay
    Yeah, No Other Reasons
    But Just Do It Our Own Way

    This Was Never My World
    I Know You Didn’t Plan
    On Taking My Angel Away
    But I Won’t Give Up, Never Give In
    Yeah I Wont Kill Myself
    Just To Make Everybody Pay
    Just To Make Them All Pay

    Now We’re No Longer Blind
    No Longer Blind
    Yeah Even This Time
    I Know We’ll Be Just Fine
    It’s Just Our Turn To Shine
    Never Be Blind
    Never Be Left Behind
    Yeah Never Be Left Behind Again

    The Calm Is Still Coming
    But There Is No More
    Yeah There Is No More Running Away
    Yeah, I’m Not A Hero
    Still Just A Simple Man
    Then We Look To The Sky
    And See How It Chimes
    Yeah See How It Shines On Us
    Shines On Just Us Today
    Let Us Live Our Life
    Just Let Us Live
    Yeah, Just Let Us Live & Die Our Own Way

    So I’m Calling You All
    Calling The Unforgiven
    Don’t You
    Yeah Don’t You Ever Go
    And Give Up On Your Life
    Cause This Is Far From Over
    You’ll Always Have A Shoulder
    To Bare The Weight
    Cause I Want To Live
    Live My Life
    Yeah, No More Lies,
    Yeah No More Cries
    Just Want To Live
    Yeah Just Want To Live My Life Again

    In Front Of Me
    One More Fight?
    Who’s Your Next Target?
    Well Just Tell Me
    Now Who’s Your Enemy?

    Now You’re Choking
    No, Not Controlling
    Just So Hypocritical
    Yes Your Own Pathetic
    Egotistical Nightmare
    Go Back
    Go Back Yo Your Silly Little Book
    And Stare
    Yeah Stare At Your Big Lie
    In The Sky
    The Big Lie In The Sky

    One More Round
    Are You Kidding Me
    One More Round
    You’re Listening From The Ground
    One Last Round?
    I’m Not Your Enemy

    Everybody’s Sick
    Sick Of Your Lies
    Everyone’s Tired
    Tired Of Caring, Tired Of Your Bullshit
    Tired Of Your Reptile Cries
    Can’t You See It
    See It In Their Eyes

    Just Take Care Of Yourself
    Cause Remember Snakes Get Bitten
    Every So Often
    Yes Snakes Get Bitten
    Snakes Get Bitten To
    Snakes Like You

    We See Them Surfacing
    Easily I Should Add
    Popping Up
    Out Of The Ground
    Every Now And Then
    Just Remember
    Snakes Get Stepped On
    Snakes Get Stomped On To

    Is Your Blood Cold
    Or Is It Burning
    Inside Your Veins
    Cause He We Go Again
    Here We Are, Again In Your Head
    In Your Head Again

    I’m Not To Blame
    When Your World Fades To Black
    I’m Not The One
    Who Chose To Start On You, You Hack
    Are You Insane?
    You’ve Done All
    Tricks Like That By Yourself
    Even After That Evil Feeling Attacked
    So Take Your Eyes Off The Trigger
    Or Your Eyes Will Start To Blister
    Here We Are Again

    So Tell Me Now, How
    Does It Feel When The Poles Are Reversed?
    When The Poles Are Reversed?
    Negative And Positive
    Swirling Inside Your Brain
    Now It’s Just Up To You
    Up To You On How You Train

    Have You Got A Fever?
    Cold Sweats,
    I Think Its Just Grand Delusions
    Just See The Truth Doctor
    And Get The Right Pill
    Or You Just Might Have To
    Stay On The Upside
    Yeah, The Wrong Side Of This Hill

    Still Don’t Wanna Stand Beside You
    Don’t Need You To Hold My Hand
    Thanks Anyway
    But Enjoy Your Fakeary
    Enjoy Your Own Delusion
    All That’s Not For Me
    Cause I Live On The Ground
    Not In The Clouds
    Yeah It’s Not For Me

    One More Round?– I’m Glad It’s Over
    One Last Round?– A Bit One Sided
    If You Ask Me
    One Last Round?
    You Were Never A Real Threat
    Never Considered An Adversary

    One Last Round?
    Couldn’t Be Bothered
    Just A Waste Of Time And Energy
    Your Plight Was Over – Before It Began
    You Never Had A Chance From The Start
    This Is Why You Ran
    Now It’s Time To Say Goodnight
    Time To Say Goodbye
    Right From My Heart

    A Brisk Walk
    Midnight on a winding street
    air still as the grave
    no danger lurking
    no signs of wake

    You swagger on
    gingerly to the left
    then suddenly—
    a hand is in your hand
    hot breath against your cheek
    a whisper in your ear:

    “My love, my light
    come lie with me.
    We'll meet at great new heights
    where you will be set free
    from hands that bind
    to a land of bliss,
    so you won't but mind
    as you float down the abyss.”

    With no note of dissent
    no sigh, no frown, nor shake
    you are whisked away,
    taking steady steps and deep breaths
    to the hole where you shall lay.

    When finally you do arrive
    you're beckoned to lie down
    you stumble in, burrowing
    careful not to make a sound.

    Morning comes, but not the sun,
    Eyes search, but nothing found.
    Hands grasp at dirt, nails rake on stone
    at this new burial ground.

    Screaming does no good
    nor fight, nor will, nor pain
    you are here and here for good
    because doth wed the night
    and the night doth betrayed.

    “Away now morning light,
    Farewell bitter day!
    Soon we will reunite,
    perhaps from inner fray.
    So beat your drums,
    grapple in spite,
    measure your sums.
    Forget this little slight,
    For tomorrow comes! ”

    So lie down,
    calm, secure
    make most of this fine bed
    you've dug yourself out of
    time and time again.

    ENTER: Strike 3 For The Cobra?:

    Still Thinking
    Still Moving – Getting Very Close
    I’m Not Worried
    Just Waiting
    Waiting With My Noose
    The Cobra Is Cunning
    But I’m Just To Quick
    And The One With
    The Bigger
    Yes The Quicker Stick

    This Cobra Thinks
    Thinks He Is King
    But I’m Not Part Of His Kingdom
    Nor Part Of His System
    Just Death I Will Bring Him

    Keeping One Step Ahead
    Always Is My Game
    Only Showing My Hand When The Cobra
    Goes Insane

    The Art Of War – I Know You Understand
    We Have To Play First And Last
    In This Silly, But Evil Game

    Watch Out Cobra, Cause
    I Am Sober
    Watch Out Cobra, Cause
    I’m Sane
    Watch Out Cobra, Are You The Same?
    Watch Out Cobra
    You Can’t Play This Game

    Be Careful Cobra, Cause
    I’m The Black Mamba – Death Incarnate
    I’ll Shut Your Mouth
    Swallow You Whole
    Yeah Swallow Your Soul

    Watch Out Cobra
    I Think I’m Spitting
    My Venom Now
    Watch Out Cobra You Cant Be Saved
    Looks Like
    You’re Digging
    Digging Your Own Grave

    I Will Spit My Venom
    Spit The Venom In Your Face
    Just Spit On Your Grave Again
    Now You Know How
    It Tastes
    Now You Know How It Hates

    Cobras Don’t Seem
    To Like Acuphase
    Nor Do All The Monkeys And Rats
    Sharing A Similar Maze
    Black Mambas Just Spit It Right Out
    Right Back In Your Dark Faces
    Yeah Back Into Your Dark Places
    No Effect
    Yeah No Effect On The Innocent
    No Effect On The Strong

    Yes I’m Still Thinking Cobra
    Now I’m Getting Close
    Keeping Ahead Of Time
    Patience – That’s My Skill
    This Black Mamba Soon
    Will Go For The Kill

    Goodbye King Cobra
    Never See You, Never A Next Time
    You’re Lost Inside, Shedding
    Shedding Your Skin – Not Mine
    If You Ever Find Your Way
    Outside Again
    I’ll Be Waiting – And Will Suit Just Fine
    As I Will Always
    Have The Time
    The Time To Find You
    And The Time To Remind You - That You’re Already Dead
    Did You Hear What I Said?

    No Way, But Never Afraid
    Never To Myself
    Even If It’s The End
    Cause I’d Rather Die Sleeping
    Crashed Out Dreaming
    Than Listening To All Those
    Crocodile Cries Again

    Do You Remember What I Tried To Tell You?

    Now It’s Too Late

    Looking Out For Love
    Just Be Careful
    When You Turn That Key
    And Don’t Turn
    Don’t Turn The Knob If
    You Think It’s Going To
    F%$^ing Burn

    Burning Your Hands
    Are You Burning
    On Your Own Front Door?
    Yeah Burning My Hands
    No I’m Not Playing
    No I’m Not Joking
    I Think Someone’s
    Trying To Settle A Score

    Absolute Power
    Can Lead To Absolute Betrayal
    Now, I’m Not Laughing
    But Be Careful
    When You’re Still A Fool
    Well It’s Still Me Here Trying
    Trying To Help
    Help You With Your Right Tool
    Yes It’s Just Me Who Is
    Trying To Stay Cool
    And Yet,
    I’m Not Even Close To You

    Do Your Dreams Always Work Out
    Even In Another Time?
    Why Don’t You Just
    Keep Drinking
    Keep Drinking Your Own Pathetic Stale Wine

    I’m Not Playing, I’m Not Shaking
    With You Any More
    I’m Not Going Down
    Yeah I’m Not Going To Burn For Any Score
    Haven’t We Seen All This Before
    Behind Your Door?
    Yes - Haven’t We Seen It All Before

    Now Look At Your Hands
    Look At Your Face
    Look At Your Eyes
    Those Eyes
    Now Tell Me Who’s Burning

    I’ve Already Tried Cooling You Down
    But Yours And My
    Wishing Well Has Already
    Gone Bone Dead Dry
    And That’s Why You Haven’t Heard
    You Own F^%$ing Bell

    Now You’re Burning
    Yeah Now Burning
    Burning In Your Empty Cell
    Burning Yourself All The Way To Hell

    666 Is Just A Number To Me
    Some Chose It For This
    Some Chose It For That
    People Living In Reality

    Our People Don’t Worry

    All That I Needed:

    I’m Sorry For The Pain
    I’m Sorry For My Rain
    Yeah I’m Sorry For That Dark Rain
    I Finally Found Who I Am
    You Never Forgot Who I Really Was
    Always Offering Your Help
    I Just Took A Long Time
    And Finally Found My True Self

    I’m Sorry For The Stress
    Yes, I’m Sorry For The Distress
    I Wasn’t Just Being Self Fish
    Just A Little Stressed
    Just A Little Distressed
    That You Would Be
    Taken Advantage Of
    And Fooled
    By Some Snakes That Never Rest

    I’ll Always Care
    Always Know Your True Hearts
    As I Have From The Start
    In That Time
    And Over Time
    Sometimes Lazy
    Not Gentle Enough For You
    Still Living In The Fast Lane
    When It Was The Right Time
    To Slow Down

    I Would Never Lie To You
    It Was Me Causing Your Explosions
    No Fault Of Yours Anywhere And
    Still Trying, Supporting Me
    Still Trying, Not Letting Me Go In Your Heart
    But I Was The One Who Was Corroding
    And Should Have And Could Have
    Easily Fixed It From The Start
    I Guess I Never Got That Part

    Over Time, You All Will See
    The Real Truth About Me
    I’m Not Worried Anymore
    As Your Own Intelligence
    Will Let You See,
    What You Need To See
    That I’m Just A Friend
    With No Evil Agenda
    Just A Friend Around The Corner
    Yeah It’s Still Me

    I’ll Always Be There
    Be There For My Children
    Anytime And Anywhere
    You Know You Can Depend On Me
    See, It’s Still Just Me

    Nothing Here
    Nothing Said Today Is Just A Line
    It’s All About The Truth
    And In The End
    That Should Be Fine
    All I Needed Was Time
    Time To Heal
    And Time To Deal
    Like We All Already Know
    All That I Needed Was Time To Feel.

    Now All That Has Been Said
    That Needs To Be Spoken
    As You Now Know
    Some Things In Me Have Always Awoken
    Yeah Never Really Broken
    When All Is Said And Done
    There Is Nothing Lost
    Yeah When All Is Said And Done
    There Is
    No Love Lost.
