lyrics

Payment is the reason
Life is the expense
From town to town, I roam
For monetary gain

I am a believer
In payment from the blood
I've never had a history
Without misery or pain

Sometimes, I wonder if there really is a God for me
Fortune has only smiled on me when I kill
I've got a plight if there's a point to my existence
I've only found the time to live another day

Do you hear me, God?
I'm lost in the madness
And I can't explain it
But I need someone here to help me find my way out

A life for a life
What is the price of decision?
From what I take
Who do I break
With the excision?

I only do what I do well
Send the victims straight to Hell
With each and every dying breath
My mind unhinges more

Sick and twisted, my hand twitches,
Another life has been lost
I've been raised so sick and crazed
To see the right in wrong

Sometimes, I wonder if there really is a God for me
Fortune has only smiled on me when I kill
I've got a plight if there's a point to my existence
I've only found the time to live another day

Do you hear me, God?
I'm lost in the madness
And I can't explain it
But I need someone here to help me find my way out

A life for a life
What is the price of decision?
From what I take
Who do I break
With the excision?

These memories are unrelenting now
It's impossible for me to find my way out

Oh, God, why?

[ Solo - Patterson ]
