I track my history
Bloody burned family tree
Native blood runs in me
Murderous tendencies

Keep blood lust away
Keep violence at bay
Can't deny genetics
Animal DNA

Disappear into the fog
Gonna multiply the tainted blood
Can't remember where you go at night
You got the bloody teeth and wolven sight

Ancestor genocide
We were killed to save lives
Just one beast did survive
Now I live to take life
Keep yourself from me
Can't help what I be
I am man and beast
Your flesh I will eat

Fall right into homicide
Become the beast that lives inside
Sink your fangs into the skin
Drink the blood so you may live
Kill until you find the one
that will carry tainted sons
Deth brings life into the dark
Infest the world and make you mark
Tonight

Go perpetuate
Go procreate
Insure homicide
Keep bloodlines alive
Our children will regress
And hunger for the flesh
They can't be controlled
They hunger for you soul
Tonight

"Close your eyes and become the animals that you once were..."

Bloodlines
I'll take your life
I'll give you life
Bloodlines

Life
I'll take your life
I'll five you life

I'll take your life

    General Commentwhile i agree its good for a single, they shouldnt have had it as the opening song on the album.
    Laser Cannon Deth Sentence would have been better as an opening track for the album. just like Black fire upon us should have been the closing track.

    This is still a fucking awesome song though. The lyrics for this album seem to have gotten darker than in the first album. Its a good change.

    General Commenti can see why they had this as the opener because it is like the one song were Brendon uses the original voice for the majority of the song so it sounded familiar and with gears next old voice the BOOM midway through voice changes to the one of the rest of the album.

    the single should have been either Murmaider II or Gears but bloodlines works Black fire upon us should have been at the end like go into the water was
