02. Hephaestus - The Hammer of the Gods

Back Breaker
by The Showdown


Take this weight from off my chest
Crush and kill all that is left
Bend your will unto the task
The hammer falls, it falls
To forge a man that's free from fear
Clothed in hate that's seared from years
I will be the one to outrun fate
And I will die upon my feet

All I need is a good mistake
One more look at the Devil's face

Beaten, broken, bruised, and blind
One more twisted hulking rhyme
Hammer, scythe, and blade and mace
And sands of time, of time
Crushing oceans of regret
Suffocate under the whip
Back now shattered but with hands held high
And I deny, refuse to give what's mine

All I need is a good mistake
One more look at the Devil's face
What I need is one more taste
The hammer's fall with a godless grace

Swing the hammer, bludgeon me
Bruised and battered, standing free

So relieve me of this life
And the burden of what's right
Break this body, I will stand tall
And I deny, you will not take what's mine
