Track Name: The Followed
I was the black hound at the crossroads.
Following the passers with a curse.
Left in the darkness of a lost track.
I found my home but lost my soul.
My masked mistress left me for good.
Laying on a sickbed left for dead.
She was my gift and my burden.
Gone now I search for death.

Until I find it I wont rest my head.
Soon deaths hands will put me to bed.
Cursed deathbed made. As she leaves my grave.
I am alone.

Now under dirt in my soil bed.
Stuck at the crossroads I once fled.
Stuck inside a place without trace.
Living in memories I can't replace.
Track Name: Soul Scour
Not easy to sleep alone, having no one to call your own.
the devil came along to steal, and with one swipe he got his feel.
All my souls been sold to him, and the rest is going limb to limb.
And if I don't got no one to love, I'll draw me some red and call it enough.

No special rider to comfort me, I'll just let death show me.
Once I'm gone there will be no more, layin' dead for the devil on the hard killing floor.

No Special Rider.
Track Name: Dark Door
Mistress with eyes of black, staring at me.
I want to take you, undo your dress of lust.
Let me inside to the hell you dwell in, don't tell the dark lord.
He'll never know if I sneak out the back door.

I'm her backdoor man, I'm the devils best friend.

She ain't leavin' me, turn your back on him. I'm always sneaking round, sins are done but never found.
