By Order

*Verse*

He stands alone, deranged, estranged
The night air blowing cold through his soul
He shifts his gaze, his mind is made
Intent upon his ever lasting goal

*Chorus*

His blood is hot, but fear is still
Vying with his purpose
A single tears runs slowly from the
Corner of his eye.
A silent scream echoes though
His ears are humming louder
He knows tonight he must kill
One he loves by order of his god.

*Verse*

At first one then others add their name
To an ever growing list
Tonight it's time to kill the girl
That he first kissed

*Verse*

He stalks her slow, he slits her throat
Sadly he falls laughing to the floor
As he leaves he's caught. In a cell
He's left to rot, forevermore

*Chorus*

His blood is hot, but fear is still
Vying with his purpose
A single tears runs slowly from the
Corner of his eye.
A silent scream echoes though
His ears are humming louder
He knows tonight he must kill
One he loves by order of his god.

*Verse*

He stands alone, deranged, estranged
A longing to kill burns within his soul
The time has come to meet his god
He turns, to face his final goal

*Chorus*

His blood is hot, but fear is still
Vying with his purpose
A single tears runs slowly from the
Corner of his eye.
A silent scream echoes though
His ears are humming louder
He knows tonight he must die
To follow the orders of his god.
