saw the disappointment from across your face.
A mark of solitude.
So here’s to giving in.
Your eyes have betrayed you.
And ill wear this mask of disgust for every day I’ve met you.
Disarm with a smile.
Your eyes Betrayed me.
String me another line as your knife severs my spine.
The blackness of your heart has spread beneath your skin.
And as your new face runs I count the seconds till your gone.
As your new face runs I count the seconds until you’re fucking gone.
Hold this allegiance with the hearts of apathy.
We cannot breathe from your choking hands.
Mark this hour of hopelessness with burning bodies.
Returning for your heart.
Returning for your fucking heart.
Murder is on the air tonight.

    General Commentfuckin sick song
    i first heard theese guys at warped this year
    i had no clue who they were
    but they sounded sick
    so i got the cd
    fuckin ill

    ne way
    the name of the song comes from the movie "lock, stock, and 2 smoking barrels"
    fucking awesome movie
    come to think of it
    its prly my favorite
    if u have seen snatch its the same director
    and if u havent seen either lock stock or snatch i suggest u get ur ass to blockbuster and rent both of them
    number one and 2 on my favorite movie list
    which is which depends on what mood im in that day

    General CommentPwd have basically come from nowhere. They went to my school, and come from Byron Bay, NSW, my home town!

    And unfortunately I dont have time to decipher this song, which looks rather difficult, but its a great metal song.

    Love pwd!! See Romance Is Dead, that is the single greatest song in the history of all fucking metal songs!
