No integrity no sincerity no credibility no regret
No principal no ethic no honor makes no fucking sense
No inside to the future no thinking and no respect
No authority no veracity no honesty no penitence
No pride no power just a criminal no morals

Your greed you'd burn the bridge around me to save your self
Your envy, you can't be what I am even with my help
Gluttony, take everything from me take it for yourself
My wrath, I'll just live my own life

So violent so dissident no more requiem so I lament
So simple to revere to respect down and left for dead
So forget my forgiveness you've all failed to protect
No persistence, insistence my will my stubbornness
Consume devour like a criminal, no standards

Your greed, you'd burn the bridge around me to save your self
Your envy, you can't be what I am even with my help
Gluttony, take everything from me take it for yourself
My wrath, I'll just live my own life

Before I saw the light I crawled through darkness my whole life so empty
Before I found my life I embraced the death that's coming
So certain, drawing near, its coming closer it's approaching

I know the signs
I've got the number
I got my vision
I know the motion
My eyes forever opened

You'd burn the bridge around me to save your self
Your envy, you can't be what I am even with my help
Gluttony, take everything from me take it for yourself
My wrath, I'll just live my own life

    General Comment:"You can't be what I am even with my help", possibly a reference to the song "You Wouldn't Know" by Chads other band Hellyeah(with Vinnie Paul from the great PANTERA). In that song he says, "You couldnt be me even if you wanted to, with everything ive been through, you wouldnt know". The concept sounds similar.
