The Unfaithful Fate Of Jackie Riot

lyrics

Jackie Riot born
in an heaven cold as hell
with crows on backyard
and handful of sand

just like a ghost
and a magnet for stones
Jakie was just a baby
without a home to go

feeling like paralized
and stuck in a box
as claustrophobic soul
with key but not locks
so he learned to scream
but his voice was unheard
at the chamber of law
and the church of hope

the only way
was to brake the chains
and walk out from the game of thrones


Jackie hit the road
to the hopeful west
he was just born at a bad time
on a fucked up land

searching for air
to let breathe his breathing
he marched along the line
as slave on the pyramid

he tried with gambling
but he wasn't born lucky
he tried with love
but it fell down violently
and ground and death
were the only certainty

Jakie Riot,
21 years old
fell from hell
to the bottom of the world


Life is a bitch
and her heels so sour
gravity puts you down
turning seconds to hours

and Jackie he learned that
as he learned how to survive
among pigs and vampires
and gangrenous minds

he spat out tears
as burning blades
with valueless diamonds
and spits of rage
defying himself
to not die in vain
'til both remained

in a blue foolin' silence
with tons of thoughts and hurt of pain


The Man left the highway
falling into black holes
rambling to nowhere
with nothing to loose

no gates to walk
no doors to knock
lonely like a prisoner
howling like a dog

til something happened
at the end of the fall
he got the fire
he got the force

The sun set down
on the misty dawn
smoke turned to rain
and crows were gone
