"Tie This Around Your Neck" as written by and Ryan Clark....
This is the age of the dead.
The generation of pagan and self-led.
You can feel the bones shatter beneath our feet.
The blood of lust staining our teeth.

We feed on pain (pain), disorder (disorder), delusion (delusion).
The filth of the modern plague.
And in this reign of Godlessness, the heathens will say

Tie this around your neck.
Tie this around your neck.
Tie this around your neck.
Tie this around your neck.
Fool.

Save your breath my son. Just carry on home.
Time will prey on you and take you through Hell.

I've heard every empty line.
Every curse, every word that you redefine.
I will turn my back on the coming storm.
Wont lie in the grave, I will be reborn.
They say

Tie this around your neck.
Tie this around your neck.
Tie this around your neck.
Tie this around your neck.
Fool.

Save your breath my son, just carry on home.
Time will prey on you and take you through Hell.

Confusion reigns. Pride of the hopeless herd.
Blind to the will, blind to the word.
They will drown in the rule of man. Helpless and alone.

Save your breath my son, just carry on home.
Time will prey on you and take you through Hell.

They say
Tie this around your neck.
Tie this around your neck.
Fool.
Tie this around your neck.
Tie this around your neck.
Fool
Fool
Fool.

    "The world will tell you to lead yourself. This song is the antithesis of that ideal. We [Demon Hunter] believe that we [humanity] are a flawed people, and that man, given unto his own will, will fail. Therefore, using our flesh as a compass in life is a path that leads only to destruction. The burden of relying only on yourself is like a weight around your neck, and when the people and forces of the world encourage us to live this way, we tell them to ’save their breath’"

    "The upright see and rejoice, but all the wicked shut their mouths." - Psalm 107:42
