Lyrics: Tread Upon the Lion

I’ve been hunted since the war
Now I’m wanted by the law
Everyone that I’ve ever killed
Is famous for the blood that they’ve spilled

Betrayal, my destiny
This is, the only way
Murdered, by cowardice
Vengeance, by the common man

Waiting for my own procession
Death might be the only escape
Brother killed in cold blood
Rise up, ’cause it’s all I’ve ever known

Betrayal, my destiny
This is, the only way
Murdered, by cowardice
Vengeance, by the common man

Have you been shot by one of your own?
It’s a crazy feeling and I don’t recommend it,
First you feel that sharp pain,
and then you see your blood all over the wall
And just when you start to feel a little bit better,
that dirty little coward has already finished the job
Now ain’t that just some crazy shit,
keep your friends close and your enemies dead

Betrayal, my destiny
This is, the only way
Murdered, by cowardice
Vengeance, by the common man

Murdered, by cowardice
Vengeance, by the common man
