Lyrics

    Hate is a train
    That thunders aimless through my head
    And hate is the fame
    Chained to the wheel until I'm dead
    
    Rage is a flame
    Creates a touch to boil the seas
    And rage is to blame
    Forever sorry I shall be
    
         And from a darkness I descend
         Clenching a torch of sweet revenge
    
              You took away tomorrow
              Still I stand
              I ride into the sorrow
              Still I stand
              You took away tomorrow
              Still I stand
              Straight down into the sorrow
              Still I stand
    
    Wrath is the name
    Branding suffer onto you
    And wrath takes the shame
    And holds me down until its through
    
         And from a darkness I descend
         Clenching a torch of sweet revenge
    
              You took away tomorrow
              Still I stand
              I ride into the sorrow
              Still I stand
              You took away tomorrow
              Still I stand
              Straight down into the sorrow
              Still I stand
    
    And hate is a train
    That hungers for those flesh's call
    And hate takes the blame
    A beast that never slows at all
    
         And from a darkness I descend
         Clenching a torch of sweet revenge
         Burst into flame, the bitter end
         And shake these gates of hell again
    
    Cursed to drown in sorrow
    
              You took away tomorrow
              Still I stand
              I ride into the sorrow
              Still I stand
              You took away tomorrow
              Still I stand
              You left me here with sorrow
              Still I stand
    
              Still I stand
