That Day (4min35)
By: Shawn D. Petrie (2-17-2005) – (9-21-2015)

Performed by: August Will Decay

Half a mile away
From what I thought was real
Old enough to know
To immature to feel

What I thought I lost
I found I never had
Thinking back its clear
Why I was so sad

Living there with you
Was far too hard to do
Left back in the dust
Underneath the crust

When I found you there
Twisted up in pain
Broken by his wicked hand
Trying to explain

You covered up the welts
The red marks and the bruise
You tolerated more and more
And more and more you’d loose

The darkness made you crazy
The icy lack of love
Every day you would sustain
Two kicks and a shove

How could you do that to yourself?
How could you let him run your life?
It all went on for far too long
But then again you had no choice

He had a hold over your mind
Your world was dark and very small
Afraid of what’s outside the door
Pacing your life out on the floor

I was very small
Nothing I could do
Hard as I could try
Nothing I could do

He was far too strong
I was far too weak
In that house alone
I was far too weak

I thought that I could make it stop
But then he turned around on me
He put an end to what I had
And what I thought that life should be

It was then a turning point
I wanted him to die
I wanted him to feel the pain
I wanted him to cry

It was then that I found out
That he would never feel
Nothing going on inside
His love was never real

A lesson learned so very young
I grew to hate the man that day
The few attempts he made before
Meant nothing now it was a war

I was his one and only son
And you the only one he loved
I guessed you just got in the way
And I just had too much to say

He was far too gone
Lost it all that day
Spent it all to gain
Lost it all that day

Nothing made him stop
He would never stop
Had to get away
He would never stop

Thank full for today
Finally got away
Never looking back
I will never lack

What I lost that day
I never really had
I’m ashamed to say
You used to be my dad

– Shovel It In – (3min33)

SHOVEL IT

Shovel It In (3min33)
By: Shawn D. Petrie

Performed by: August Will Decay
Loaded Knife Records (2015)

(Verse)
I was just sitting, thinking
what is this pain your bringing
you say that you are there for me
but you are never beside me

(Chorus)
and as i shovel all the shit
you just stand by all of it
as i shovel all your shit
you just give me more of it

(Verse)
you can try to destroy me
but you’ll never defeat me
i’ll last forever inside you
just like a fire that burns you

(Chorus)
and as i take, more abuse
i cant see, any use
why i continue, on with you
this crushing force will be the death of you

(Verse)
i will refuse to conform to
all of the dust that you live through
i will never be like you
and i will never forgive you

(solo)

and as i shovel all the shit
you just stand by all of it
as i shovel all your shit
you keep giving me more of it

(Bridge)
what i ever do to you
pain 10 fold to you
soon you’ll finally see
you are half of me
you are someone that
i just cant look at
i could never be like you
pain 10 fold to you

– Break Me – (3min20)

Break Me (3min20)
By: Shawn Petrie (1993) – (9-19-2004) – (9-21-2015)
Performed by: August Will Decay
Loaded Knife Records (2015)

(Verse)
An outspoken reason to leave, disobey
(I saw this coming)
The law of the land, forever to stay
(From a mile away)
Here for a second, gone for a lifetime
(nothing good ever lasts)
A spiral to my downfall, I am broken
(I am broken)

(Chorus)
I can’t dwell in the past, I won’t be broken
I must be moving on, as I have spoken
I need someone new, although I’ve forgotten
I need someone new to replace what’s rotten

(Verse)
It will never be the same, the life I once had
(Why would I want it to be?)
How can I forget, the way we both bled
(And how I’m left for dead)

(Chorus)
I care for you not, the fires are cold
My soul won’t remember, the memory’s dead
It is time for new love, to open the door
A girl with everything I have been waiting for
In need of a kind heart, and understanding
Someone who’ll love me when the sky has darkened
Someone who’ll smile at me with pure intentions
Someone who will not try to devastate me

(Solo)

I need someone to heal, to love and to hold
I need someone real, come in from the cold
I say this to you on my words I am choking
I need someone new to heal all the broken

– Blood On Roses – (3min03)

BLOOD ON ROSES
Blood On Roses (3min03)
By: Shawn Petrie (9-6-2004) – (9-26-2015)
Performed by: August Will Decay
Loaded Knife Records (2015)

(Verse)
Life lacks simplicity
Too many problems rot your mind
In one hand love in the other death
Somewhere in between there’s life
Can you tell me why it happens?
When clouds and mist black out reality
Nothing is real
What do you expect but fear?

(Chorus)
If something is nice
That something will die
If you could only understand
How hard I tried
If something is nice
That something will die
Can you supply to me
The tools to then destroy

(Verse)
I tried to connect with you
But I was left behind
With blood drops on my roses
And wasted thoughts in my mind
When this is over
And you come back to me
Will love conquer all?
Or will I then resist

(Chorus)
If something is nice
That something will die
If you could only understand
How hard I tried
If something is nice
That something will die
Can you supply to me
The tools to then destroy

(Verse)
You cannot understand
What you have done to me
And no one knows just
What will become of me?

My future holds untold stories
More pain waiting to surface
Will I follow in the footsteps?
Of this recently failed society
What lies in your mind?
Can put an end to my faith
I must throw my emotions
Into life frozen lake

Life lacks simplicity
