"A Great Reckoning" as written by Joseph Trohman, Andrew Hurley, Robert Caggiano, Keith Buckley and Scott Ian....
I'll let the coin toss figure it out if that's alright
I can't be bothered with the feigns of the heart
When I'm trying to ruin my life
Place your money down to beat the spread
You give me more credit than you should ever invest
And if it's bad luck that suits us
Then I'm one of a kind

The king gets his aces cracked my good name's no good anymore
Wellness is leaving me but I don't miss is it, I don't know
I'm not wanted I reckon
I reckon, I reckon whoa

It's not necessity that kept you around of that I'm sure
Unless you need to keep falling apart then I'm your safest bet
We've been counting cards trying to win
I lost more dignity then I had to spend
And if it's bad luck that suits us
Then I'm one of a kind

The king gets his aces cracked my good name's no good anymore
Wellness is leaving me but I don't miss is it, I don't miss it
You can't take me anywhere my good name's no good anymore
The king gets his aces cracked and I don't miss it, I don't know
I'm not wanted I reckon
I reckon, I reckon whoa

The king gets his aces cracked my good name's no good anymore
Wellness is leaving me but I don't miss is it, I don't miss it
You can't take me anywhere my good name's no good anymore
The king gets his aces cracked and I don't miss it, I don't know
I'm not wanted I reckon
I reckon, I reckon whoa

Tonight I reckon war
Tonight I reckon war
Every night I learned even more
Keep in mind a great reckoning

    General CommentThe feigns of the heart = affairs of the heart.

    Wellness = awareness

    and the ending:
    Tonight I am ending the world
    Tonight I am ending the world
    Every night I am ending the world
    This is my great reckoning

    Otherwise
    Good job, amazing song.

    General CommentI did it by ear, so I did the best i could, the end was the hardest.

    Probably my favorite off the album, or blues having blues.

    General CommentThe card metaphors in the verses are brilliant.
