Track Name: Below or Above
Been clawing like a Devils livin under my skin
I'm like the Ox at a slaughter and its wearing me thin
Singin hymns of the dreadful and the chorus is thick
Yeah the reapers got me humming along

Been up and down the river and it's aching my bones
Tied up like a harlot while they're throwing their stones
Fears just a souvenir you take when you go
No bigger lie you believe in

I caught me a silver tongue by the noose and a throe
(Oh oh oh oh)
Yeah Hell never bid my stay, now it's calling me home
(Oh oh oh oh)
They say heavens got a place for the wayward sons
But they never heard my name at the gates
I could recite my sins till it's burning my lungs
I know I'll pay that wage below or above

You get the rot in your stomach at the judgment throne
While the preachers got em hollering and nodding along
There's a debt on the table and blood in my lungs
They say I caught up to Belial in height

Yeah hollow is the son of a father of lies
Bred to Inherit, and colder the eyes
I know how I lived and I know that I'll die
But you can never take away what's mine
