"Ashes" as written by and Bathroy/moody....
You don't understand me,
And you probably never will
I got a tendency to self destruct,
And a soft spot for the filth
A hair trigger temperament,
A switchblade for a tongue
I'm a walking one-man genocide
With a black belt in corrupt

Everything I touch turns to ashes
Falls away, it falls away
Everything I touch turns to ashes
It slips right through my hands

Love me, hate me
Isolate me everyday that I'm alive
Straight up mentally unstable
You don't have to like my life

I'm a jinx, a curse, some say, "the worst"
I'm a savage, rabid beast
I've been called so many fucking things,
It doesn't affect me in the least
I've stolen, lied, been crucified but I don't regret a thing
I'm an egocentric masochist with a sadist's point of bleak

Everything I touch turns to ashes
Falls away, it falls away
Everything I touch turns to ashes
It slips right through my hands

Love me, hate me
Isolate me everyday that I'm alive
Straight up mentally unstable
You don't have to like my life

Everything I touch turns to ashes
Falls away, it falls away
Everything I touch turns to ashes
It slips right through my hands

    General CommentAt the beginning i think he's yelling Hate like joeynobody said, but what i think he was doing was warming up his vocals before recording, they just kept it in there because it sounded fucking awesome

    General CommentThis song is so spot on for me. I've never been like the other kids. Listened to metal (still do) when everyone else listened to pop and bands like Westlife, always had different interests etc. Though I've been lucky enough to find a few like-minded people, and they're now my best friends.

    This song is so spot on because, even though it may not be the original meaning, it's like a big "fuck you" to all the haters.

    General CommentThey are AMZING live. If you are going to see any show see theirs, hell if its your first show see theirs, you will love it.


    Basically somebody has made them rotten and angry, and he says you don't have to like me or my life, just stay out of it.

    kind of like that grandmother who nags about you life, your looks, morals, religion, etc.

    General CommentYeah guys.
    I'd have to say that they had the craziest pit I have ever been caught in.
    When this guy is screaming in your face its like you're living this song through him.
    When the world expects nothing but shit from you.
    Shit is all you achieve.
