Lions Den 2

from by JXD



This is the first of the mind section of the album. Only TRUE nerds will understand the interlude at the beginning of this track:-)


Chapter 6. Recap.
They lock me in the eerie cave, calling me crazy deranged
Evil is as evil does, the cousin hate
They say my ideas are caustic and toxic
Call me the black plague, the new bubonic
hear the hungry growls in the dark. they’re out for meat and blood, feel their hunger permeate my heart
This ain’t for faint or squeamish, you better watch your back, violated, soul tainted, sneak attack
They’re moving in, teeth bared, saliva dripping while their eyes glare, blink? I wouldn’t dare
You’re outnumbered, fight back and you will get scratched
Better that than torn apart on your back
So I prepare myself, shuffle my feet and feel my fist engage--feel heartless rage
Suddenly their lips snap close like fly traps
They can’t even growl, caught in invisible mousetraps
I walk past the muzzled lions , see the sliver light escape
With all my strength I push the rock out away
I think it’s over but this is only a beginning.
I survive... only to meet another ending.

Take a deep breath. This might be the only break you get.

I retrieve my armor, my sword and shield, Collect my senses, and grip the cold steel.
They’re relentless, coming at me from the left and right, entering my depth of the field, I move in for the kill
Kick ‘em in the throat, slash to the back, blood on the sand, sweat in the palm of my hands
lungs are burning, heart pumping, about to have a heart attack, it’s kill or be killed, only time to react
The headmaster’s cracking is whip. Archers all around, horsemen devoted to the crown
I gotta thin the numbers, I set a trap. Force em into a crossfire, the stupid ones perished fast
It’s only me, the master, and his devotees
They’re cursing the name JXD. Sharpened swords, they wanna see me bleed
If not now, later in the guillotine
Another group throws a net over my head. I cut the braid while spears pierce my leg
I’m leaking bad. Onlookers stare and laugh while I bathe in my on blood bath
It wasn’t long ago when I was one of them, standing by while they watched my back, we were like kin
Now I’m all alone defending myself from constant attacks . . . my futures looking bleak
