afflicted past lyrics – hatebreed

hatred evokes the memories
that make your blood run cold
fear and sorrow
push you away from yourself

how can you face the world
when you can’t face the mirror?
how can you leave your past
with blood on your hands?
can you run away all your life?
can you escape your punishment?

how many times
can you start it all again?
and how many lies
will it take to cover your tracks?

how can you face the world
when you can’t face the mirror?
how can you leave your past
with blood on your hands?
can you run away all your life?
can you escape your punishment?

no matter how far you go
those days are right behind
the facade of your perfect life
cannot hide your perfect past

there is no escape
no escape
no escape
no escape
no escape
