A FATHERS WISH

A Fathers Wish (3min15)
By: Shawn Petrie (11/9/00)
Performed by: August Will Decay
Loaded Knife Records (2015)

(Verse)
As a father lye dying
Alone and in his bed
He remembers back to a time
When awful things were said

Scared and broken hearted
Looking back on the past
Trying to find the day he let go
And lost control of the mast

(Chorus)
A feeling he is not so used to
Is creeping back up inside
Today he felt a burning regret
And it hurt enough to make him cry

(Verse)
His family has gone away
There nowhere to be found
Because he had just left them
Like garbage on the ground

He has no more friends
No one left who seems to care
He looks into the shadows
But there isn’t anybody there

(Chorus)
Back so many years ago
Would have been the time
To try to heal old memories
But he was locked inside his mind

(Verse)
And as he lay there dying
He worries about his soul
How could god except a man
Who has been so mean and cold?

A few short breaths away
From the one which will be his last
And with his last few moments
He continues to dig in the past

(Chorus)
Children playing in a time of light
Before the storm of rage
Before the lies and before the pain
Inflicted on the ones in his cage

(Verse)
A raised hand to end it all
A forced perspective on life
A need ignored and misled
Left frozen out in the night

He now can see the reasons
He is dying alone and old
It’s due to the fact that to his own blood
He was so cruel and cold

(Chorus)
He closes his eyes to the world
And gives up on the worry
God knows he is just a man
Who made mistakes, and now he’s sorry

(Chorus)
A cold silence fills the air
He thinks about the moments he missed
To say good bye to his only son
Is his final wish

(Bridge)
He stares up at the ceiling
One last tear falls on the bed
And with a final shutter
The memory fades and he is dead
(Solo-out)

You Come To Me

You Come To Me (3min52)
By Shawn Petrie
Performed By August Will Decay

(11-26-2004) – (10-6-2015)

what am i supposed to do
when nothing ever pleases you

how am i supposed to feel
when what i need i have to steal

and now i have nothing in you
and you have no commitment to me

i am just a board piece
in this game of profit

half a man is how you make me feel
loosing touch you are no longer satisfied
you have such a one track mind
which couldn’t be any further from mine

blank stare as you check for leaks
tight grip so i cannot leave
all planned for an unfair game
lowest man in the food chain

you come to me
this is where i belong
you come to me
to tell me i am wrong
you come to me
just to see where were at
you come to me to keep the pigs purse fat

quick walk through then your gone
into your dungeon where the plans are made
from day to day i can never tell
who ill agree with or want to kill
today you put me down
made me feel like a weakened child
i wonder why i continue here
with everything that you don’t hold dear

you come to me
when you want what you want
you come to me
to change what you don’t
you come to me
just to see where were at
you come to me to keep the pigs purse fat

blue pills

The Blue Ones (3min33)
By: Shawn D. Petrie (2-4-2005) – (9-18-2015)
Performed by: August Will Decay
Loaded Knife Records (2015)

(Verse)
Anger desguises fear
Cover it all with hate
The sky is getting dark
The time is getting late
So give me all you got
I’m ready for a war
Something I wont forget
I’ve never seen before

(Chorus)
Here in this room
The shades of grey
Have seemed to run
My life away

(Verse)
I walk into the night
I’m twisted by a dream
Nothing will ever be
Able to get to me
One look into my eyes
And you will see just how
I’ll make it through today
I’m going all the way

I do it one more time
But will i make it home
To get what i now need
The hunger that i feed
I’ll sit alone and stare
I measure up the fight
Untill i let you in
No way that i can win

(Chorus 2)
The pills I take
Will now conceal
I’ll only have
Numbness to feel

(Solo)

(Bridge)
Makes me want to cry
Makes me want to die
Makes me want to smile
At the same time
Feel like I can fly
Emptiness inside
It’s not hard to try
For the last time

Something hurts but I can’t
Figure out just why
In the blink of an eye
I’m just fine
Silly now as it seems
I go back to my dream
While im wide awake
At the same time

I make another trip
To fill up what I need
Again iI will go back
To get me what I lack
You ask me how I feel
Right now I cannot tell
But if I had to say
The blue ones do work well

Anger disguises fear
Cover it all with hate
The sky is getting dark
The time is getting late
So give me all you got
I’m ready for a war
I want to never feel
The way i felt before

game of murder

Game Of Murder (3min32)
By: Shawn D. Petrie (8-27-2015)
Performed by: August Will Decay
Loaded Knife Records

Take away all the lies
Take away all the tears
Chip away at my heart
Finish off what you started

You can drive the final spear into my heart
You can pull the final hair from my head
You can twist the final breath from my chest
There’s nothing stopping you from ending this

The game that you played
To murder all we had
And now I am left alone
I should have known

Take away all the hurt
Take away all the fear
Take my connections away
And leave me standing here

You can make the final choice for us both
You can sign away the deed to my life
You can have all the power that you need
There nothing stopping you from ending me

The game that you played
To murder all we had
And now I am left alone
I should have known

Take away all we have
Take away what is mine
Take everything else away
And leave me broken here today

You can have what you rightfully own
you’ve owned me since the day we met
So do with me what you will
because you chose to murder it

You murdered it
(out)
