Track Name: I: Finale
Verse:

Natty grab your gun
You're gonna show them all
Show them they're not tough
They scream and fall

Chorus:

They're gonna burn
They're gonna rot
Watch their heads turn
The King is Dead

Verse2:

Momma hears the news 
Her boy is lost
Inside his head there's a ton of ghosts
Who have all decided that he is their vessel and he must destroy

Chorus:

They're gonna burn
They're gonna rot
Watch their heads turn
The King is Dead

Chorus3:

He's gonna burn
He's gonna rot
Natty took the gun up to his head 
And took one last shot

Bridge:

His life wasn't the happiest
His friend were true, the few he had were 
The best that he could ask for
And he didn't ask for much at all
His mother loved him dearly
The hole his father left in him was 
Eating him alive
It's a shame he died with no one by his side
Track Name: II: Chicago, 1992
Verse1:

1992 he gets onto a train
She wakes up at 4AM on Christmas Day
He doesn't know that, he has single handedly
Destroyed another life, years down the line

Chorus:

How could you say that you mean well?
When you don't know what it means to be a
Father, well I 
Can't believe that you'd just go and 
Abandon us, left us to 
Die with no contact and nowhere 
Else to turn, it's time for us to learn

Verse2:

She did try her best, looking back on those hard times
Three jobs and a kid that mainly stayed inside
We never did hear from that man again
I sincerely hope he's already dead.

Chorus2:

How could she say that he means well?
Cause she don't know what it means to be a father, well
I can't believe that he would just go and
Abandon us, leave us to
Die with no contact and no where
else to turnits time for us to learn.

Chorus3:

I know that he didn't mean well
Cause he won't know what it means to be a
Father, and
I can't believe that he would just go and
Abandon me, leave me to
Die with no contact and no where
Else to turn, and now I'll never learn
Track Name: III: Samuel
Verse1:

Sammy's the name, a good time is the game
And I promise to give a good price
It's not a crime to enlighten your mind
I can make it all seem right
I swear to you my pill is true
It'll make the world seem kind
Give it a rest, I've had some tests
And I turned out just fine

Prechorus:
You know you need it and you want it
So just take it
I promise it will save your life

Chorus:

EINS, ZWEI, DREI, VIER
Get lost in the lie
FUNF, SECHS, SIEBEN, ACHT
It will slow down time
EINS, ZWEI, DREI, VIER
You will be just fine
FUNF, SECHS, SIEBEN, ACHT
Or my name's not Sammy

Verse2:

Natty paid the cost
30 bucks for a pill to save his life
What else could be lost?
Other than precious time
Momma wouldn't be proud
But daddy don't care about him
Fuck em both now
What do they know anyway?

Prechorus2:

He didn't need it, but he want it so he took it
And the room is spinning
He don't want it anymore but he took it
And Sammy said goodnight
Track Name: IV: Demons
The pills they make me feel ill
It feels like there is something
Crawling on the wall
I close my eyes and see it all
In fact I'm seeing too much
There's things they say things too me
Demons and dark things with me
Red eyes and black ties

I can't escape the darkness
The ghosts they say things to me
"Your friends all hate you Nathan"
My mind unravels while I die
Track Name: V: The Ballad of Nathan Bartholomew
Verse1:

Give me three days to Collect my thoughts
Cold and dark and full of hateful thoughts
Saaaaave me from myyyyyyself
Iiiii think that I'm in hell

Verse2:

I caaan't feel anything
Im looost inside this thing
I'm just an empty cracking shell
I know that I'll rot in hell with no one by my side


Verse3:

I can't escape all the pain that has entered my body
I feel like cold blooded murder is my new hobby
My life was a horrible test and I didn't do well
These failures have proven to me that
I will rot in hell alone with no one by my side
