lyrics

Enemy coward Benedict Howard, he slicked his hair back and he went.
Thought he was clever and that he would never get caught up in over his head.
He just didn't have a clue,
he would never have known what to do,
cus when he encountered a superior warrior, he wouldn't have a prayer in the world.
A man of a new world, watching the smoke curl back on days gone by -
Old Sergeant Major, Benedict wagers, has seen his luck dry,
but an enemy coward, Ol' Sarge just devoured, then went right along with his day -
survival's a habit that he can't break.
Because he's crossed the line.
So don't cross the line.
Something left behind, a piece of my soul buried forever.
I am all alone.
The company I keep are the ghosts I've made.
It's a world of hate, yea, a world of sin,
they're coming around trying to take our things.
There's death in the air and it's us vs. them,
so knock knock, my man, come on and let me in!
Another anchor in the haunted sea,
(because he's crossed the line)
another tether trapping you with me.
(please, don't cross the line)
He shakes, he howls, spectral chemicals strip his rank.
Two worlds compete for this man's head.
They claw and consume,
so as a beast, he lives.
Through his eyes, shadow and light are one.
Something left behind, a piece of my soul buried forever.
I am all alone.
The company I keep are the ghosts I've made.
It's a world of hate, yea, a world of sin,
they're coming around trying to take our things.
There's death in the air and it's us vs. them,
so knock knock, my man, come on and let me in!
