Lyrics

World Of Hurt.  The debut concept album from the Four Skulls.  The story of a young mans journey through the hell of warfare.

Maybe

(Bryan & Pack)

 

"My future as I'd seen it, had been molded in my mind as long as I can remember.  She and I were seldom apart, and we talked of our future together as if it had been carefully illustrated for us by a grand artisan. Things we planned on doing, places we were to visit and explore. The family we would raise. Then, the announcement came that changed our lives forever."

 

I've always been, where I want to be

Every day without end

Can this last for me, I'll have to wait and see

Coming up is my past

 

I've always known, who I want to be

Every minute is mine

Can you last for me, we'll have to wait and see

Every day without end

 

Maybe

They will know my name

I know I must leave this place

My life's not the same

 

Maybe

I'll make it back someday

Time without you I must face

 

Maybe

They will know my name

I know I must leave this place

My life's not the same

 

Maybe

I'll make it back someday

Time without you I must face

 

Maybe

You will know my name

In your memory I'll stay

After our lives change

 

Maybe

When I go away

You'll see me another day

World Of Hurt

(Bryan & Pack)

 

"They have thrust me in a world far, far away.  The task at hand is simple.  Kill or be killed."  

 

I think that I know where I am

A world of hurt, is where I stand

It's me now, stuck in no man's land

Would you please lend me a hand

 

Ground to plane

And then the sky

Looking over

Where I'll live or die

 

World, world of hurt

Hurting me

This world of hurt

World, world of hurt

Can’t it be

This world of hurt

 

Where in the world am I

 

This is where I will fucking stand

A world of hurt, is where I am

It's me now, ruling the bad lands

Havoc made, with my bare hands

 

Sky to ground

And then the fight

Bloody Day

And bloody night

 

World, world of hurt

Hurting me

This world of hurt

World, world of hurt

Cant it be

This world of hurt

 

Ground to plane

And then the sky

Looking over

Where I'll live or die

 

World, world of hurt

Hurting me

This world of hurt

World, world of hurt

Cant it be

This world of hurt

 

Where in the world am I

Holding On

(Bryan & Pack)

 

"My entire platoon is dead. How I survived is perplexing to say the least.  It seems like I've lain here for days hoping the end will come for me as well.  But I must keep moving.  My destiny still lies ahead."

 

Holding on, for dear life

Try to see, what's wrong or right

Holding on, can't let go

If I die alone, no one will know

 

I'll get back up, I'll be alright

It's all that I can do

I'll get back up, I'll stand and fight

Or my life is through

 

Holding on, for all I know

Try to figure out, which way to go

Holding on, for all I get

I can say, I'm not dead yet

 

I'll get back up, I'll be alright

It's all that I can do

I'll get back up, day or night

There's nothing fucking new

I'll get back up, I'll be alright

It's all that I can do

I'll get back up, I'll stand and fight

Or my life is through

 

Holding On, holding on for all I know

Holding On, never going to let it go

Holding On, holding on to my dear soul

Holding On

 

Rolling endless and out of control

The ride of this life keeps me holding on

Holding on, for what I don't know

My dear life, it is my own

 

Holding On, holding on for all I know

Holding On, never going to let it go

Holding On, holding on to my dear soul

Holding On

 

Still endless and out of control

The ride of my life

Where it stops I don't know

I'm getting off

Cause I can't hold on

Warrior Abound

(Bryan & Pack)

 

"Reinvigorated and better focused, I must rejoin my brothers. One problem, where the hell are they?"

 

I'm not sure if I know

Just where to be

Up and down and all around

It's the same to me

 

I know, I know

Nothing looks the same

Walking lost and not found

Again today

Hey hey hey yeah

Yeah, heh heh

 

Look around and I've found

Where I need to be

Countrymen in this as well

Such a sight to see

 

I know, they know

Just how far I've came

I live to fight by their side

Another day

Hey hey hey yeah

Yeah, heh heh

 

Roaming warrior's found your city

You best not stand in my way

Roaming warrior's got one thing on his mind

All the time, every day

 

Whether friend or foe

I don't really care

I'll shoot you dead on sight

That's why they sent me here

Yeah, heh heh, eYeah

 

Roaming warrior's found your city

You best not stand in my way

Roaming warrior's got one thing on his mind

All the time, every day 

Why

(Bryan & Pack)

 

"The war is over.  What now?  How do I continue after what I've been through?"

 

I don't want to live like  this

But I can't seem to die

More needles and cocaine

And yet I'm still alive

I want to leave this place

But I can't go back home

Trained killer in the real world

Doomed to exist alone, alone

 

Don't, know, why

I'm still alive

Drugs in my veins, I

Don't, know, why

I'm still alive

End all the pain, pain

 

So many tried to kill me

But no one could succeed

Can die by my own hand

Sometimes I feel that's what I need

I don't want to live no more

I'm in all of this rage

Might as well end it now

Put me in my grave, my grave

 

Don't, know, why

I'm still alive

Drugs in my veins, I

Don't, know, why

I'm still alive

End all the pain, pain 

Mind Made For Me

(Bryan & Pack)

 

"In just a short amount of time since arriving at boot camp, my mind has been forever reprogrammed.  I rarely think of home or the friends and family I have left behind.  Only the job that lies before me occupies my thoughts and the savagery they have awakened."

 

Training day has come and gone away

My mind is geared to send you to your grave

All I know is I can live or die today

I use my skills your soul is mine to slay

 

Ahh, Training

To be a bad guy

No second thought or regret

And a mindset to forget

 

I am Training

To be a tough guy

Gonna send you straight to hell

Cause a bad guys trained me well

 

When you die, my mind and soul forgets

No image haunting me from the time of your death

 

Ahh, Training

To be a bad guy

No second thought or regret

And a mindset to forget

 

I am Training

To be a tough guy

Gonna send you straight to hell

Cause a bad guys trained me well

 

Training day has come and gone away

My mind is geared to send you to your grave

 

Ahh, Training

To be a bad guy

No second thought or regret

And a mindset to forget

 

I am Training

To be a tough guy

Gonna send you straight to hell

Cause a bad guys trained me well

Not Dead Yet

(Bryan & Pack)

 

"Sitting in this foxhole feels like being strapped to an electric chair, patiently waiting for the electrons to start flowing.  Any moment, the bombardment will commence and there is no choice but to face it head on."

 

I'm in a hole

I'm not dead yet

Waiting to kill someone

That I've never met

 

He's coming at me

Gotta shoot to kill    

Time to fight not die

You know I will, you know I will

 

I’m in a hole

 

Not dead yet

I keep shooting

Not dead yet

I keep killing

 

This hole is my home

I pray it's not my grave

My life is the only one

That I need to save

There's nowhere to run

There is no retreat

Shoot that mother fucker now

Watch him die at my feet, die at my feet

 

I’m in a hole

 

Not dead yet

I keep shooting

Not dead yet

I keep killing

 

Bodies on the ground

But it's not me

That's all that I smell

I have to kill, so many

Just to stay alive

Living For Hope

(Bryan & Pack)

 

"It's been five days since I've been wondering the countryside, seemingly going in circles.  Finally, I see smoke and hear friendly voices in the distance."

 

I'm so hungry but I feel no fear

I see people and their town

Rest my weapon and my head for a while

The thought of eating makes me smile

 

Happy that I'm living on

Today is not my last

Happy that I'm living on

Today's my past 

 

Who knows what the future will bring

I hope I'm in it for sure

Thank you people for saving me

What helps me tomorrow we'll see

 

Happy that I'm living on

Today is not my last

Happy that I'm living on

Today's my past

 

Hey, I'm living for hope

I'm gonna hope to live

I'm gonna live to keep my hope

 

Hey, I'm living for hope 

I'm gonna fight to live

I'm gonna kill to keep my soul

I'm gonna hope to live

I'm gonna live to keep my hope

 

Hey, I'm living for hope

I'm gonna hope to live

I'm gonna live to keep my hope

 

Hey, I'm living for hope

I'm gonna hope to live

I'm gonna live to keep my hope

I'm gonna fight to live

I'm gonna kill to keep my soul

 

I'm gonna hope to live 

I'm gonna fight to live

I'm gonna live to keep my hope

I'm gonna kill to keep my soul

Fight Die Bleed

(Bryan & Pack)

 

"The war's end is in sight.  Annihilate the enemy at all costs.  I will not be denied."

 

When it's said and done you'll see it my way

Free to fight and live another day

When it's done I say I'll make you go away

The choice is yours to live another day

 

I win again, I'll always win

 

Fight, Die, Bleed

There's no other way

Fight, Die, Bleed

The end of you today

 

The battle rages burning out of control

Bullets fly to claim another soul

Their force is breaking as they all fall down

More dead faces plunge into the ground

 

I win again, I'll always win

Fight, Die, Bleed

There's no other way

Fight, Die, Bleed

The end of you today

 

Now it's said and done you've seen it my way

Live to fight and free another day

All is done I say and I'll never go away

You're choice is gone to live another day

 

I'll always win, you lose again

Fight, Die, Bleed

There's no other way

Fight, Die, Bleed

The end of you today/Your soul is mine to slay

1000 Souls

(Bryan & Miller)

 

"My time has come.  There is no escape from the sins I've commited."


There's a war in my head
A fear in my soul
Now that I'm twisted
And out of control


Can't close my eyes
Can't bear the light
Knowing the end
Is coming tonight

 

Those that I've killed
And put in their grave
Seeing my end
Is something they crave

 

A thousand souls
Screaming at me
Will their god
Have mercy on me

 

I Must Die
