about

Homecoming continues the story left behind in Fear Me, told from the perspective of Ethan Hardy, the brother of the main protagonist in, Jay, from the last story.

Lost in the constant state of delusion to the Gloom, Jay has been left to rot in the confines of a cell by his former employers, as Ethan can do nothing but helplessly watch. In retaliation, he lashes out at everyone he loves as he's constantly reminded of his brother's incarceration, and the vivid traumatic dreams and visions he relives every day of his time in the military. He pushes everyone away, to the point where only he is the only one left standing.

This is the realest story we've written into the lore of Section 13, and we hope you all enjoy it.

"Welcome to the witch hunt. Welcome to my homecoming. This is survival of the grittiest."

Track Name: Rodent
(Dear brother of mine, dear brother of war
You've lost so much, yet dealt so much more
But now is the time for rest, for the Gloom has taken it's toll
For I am the Death Dealer)

Welcome to the Rabbit Hole
Lay me in my grave

I am war, I am pestilence
But what I wish for is to not be this
I'm a slave to the war machine
I've lost everything. God Abandon Me

Brother of mine
Chase the reaper from your mind.
Track Name: Brother
Broken and bleeding

"He belongs to me forever
He gave in, so he's mine for the taking
Nothing will bring him back"
said the voice coming from my brother

Left broken and bleeding
A hollow shell with a monster that can't stop feeding

The two sit alone in an empty room,
No words are spoken
But I can see the madness begin to bloom
He's a fucking mess howling at the moon

"Little bitch boy has tried committing too many times. Ask the doc to swap the codeine with a healthy dose of cyanide. I'm the fucker that turned his nightmares into wet dreams. Don't sit back and watch him bleed, put the barrel between his fucking teeth".

I can see the darkness take hold
I can see he's lost control
So I take a step back and let it settle in
My condition feels the walls start to close in
He speaks in tongues that bring the aroma of death himself
Scratch marks on the wall to just keep count just how many he's killed

Why can't he die?
"Oh believe me brother I've fucking tried
If I succeeded they would still be alive
But I can't control myself now you're marked as a target."

Fuck it, I refuse
To let him win
(I can't lose another)
So I let the serpents eat my skin

Brother of mine, brother of mine
Give him back to me

Release him of your hold

So save me 'cause there's no turning back from here
There's no turning back from here
I feel like I've already lost the last thing I held dear
I collapse to the ground to find solace in the pavement
But I knew I'd find nothing as pure as what your love meant
Together your love was fused as one
I promise to fix you if it means I come undone

[Guess you think I'm a loser, huh?
All slithers of hope washed away in the pouring rain
I'm worthless and you knew that
Jay is fucking dead. Gloom forever.]
"I have the devil trying to drag me to hell
And you lecture me on morality?
Let him, the Hole's better than here.
I'll show him he should fucking fear me.

You're no brother of mine. Put the barrel between my fucking teeth and pull the fucking trigger."

Now let the darkness take hold

If she dies, he dies, I die, we die
We're eaten alive by the mouth of God
Only the grittiest will survive.
Track Name: War
I walk across the sea of flames
Against the firing line
Being told they're
the ones to blame
We invade, we destroy,
innocence tattered and torn
They run in terror
We scorch their earth

Dead bodies, stacked ten feet high
I can still see them before my eyes
Men, Women and children
Their life drained from their eyes
We were all sent there to die.
The memories still haunt me

There's a problem in the world today

I pushed you all away
So I could hide my pain
The constant torment of never ending flashbacks
Fear behind a smiling mask, I hate what I see in reflective glass
Hell above and below
I never intended to hurt those I love
In the same way I hurt those I was taught to hate
And, oh god, the lines become more blurred every day

(Voices talking)
Voices in my head)
Ringing in my ears
Blood and sand in my eyes
Across the desert lies
A plain white flag
Held in a little boy's hands
He never stood a chance

So stop screaming my name
We're not the ones to blame
We're all just pawns to their game
Another face with no name
"Dying in his name"
So stop screaming my name
stop screaming my name
It won't do a thing
I have stared death in the face
And spoke words so strange
I bear my cross with disdain
Bearing the souls of the slain

I gave up all that I own
My love, my family, my home
But what I regret the most
Is giving up hope

Lay me down, descend me to the darkness
Pray for me, for I have lost salvation
I suppress my memories with poisons
Replace my life with the little boy's I should have saved
Disassemble. Rearrange. praise me for my accolades
But when I cry for help, all you do is talk of shame
Though my tour is ended the sound continues,
and the sound of war is endless

Now I'm drowning in a bottle of substance
Waking in the middle of the night
Screaming to memories
I can still hear them screaming
The blade feels so cold
Pressed against my skin
I am the one that never grows old (we are the ones that never grow old)
Remember me for me, not my end.

Do you know what its like when your gun jams
and you're standing face to face
With a man who wants to die for his country
Who wants to die for his beliefs
He raises his gun
And fires away
God abandoned me?
God abandoned us all

I walk across the sea of flames.
Track Name: Thirteen Six (Paramour)
I have nothing left to live for and it shows
Through my eyes, through my teeth
Through my mannerisms when I speak
I have nothing left to live for and it shows
Just another statistic, another story of mercy blow
I have nothing but your unrequited love
Just use me, abuse me, take what you want,
as long as you promise you'll love me
Yours eyes and mouth speak apologies
But your hands choke them to the point
Where I can barely breathe

Let me go

If my face is a canvas then your art is a reflection of violence

How can you hate me if I've done nothing at all
Your insecurities will be your downfall
Push me one more time
Bend and break, my mistake

From hands to caskets, we lay
Unheard, we died unnamed

Can you feel that
In the back of your throat?
That's the taste of regret
I hope you fucking breathe
You were love to me
But I can't fucking sleep
They say that life isn't cheap
But I'm worth nothing at all

Conceal it all
I'm clearly deplored
There's no love here
When I'm screaming at my bedroom floor

Burn me away
I scream in silence
I can't feel pain
Only defiance

Push me away, I'm your mistake

My heart won't let me leave
It hurts me too much to try
But every time I take a breath to speak
All that comes out is lies
I cover the blood to make it seem lesser
Remove my mask
See my terror
Hit me if it makes you feel...

Nothing ever changes
I don't think it'll ever change
What you left on my soul and skin
They'll never be erased
There might be a war in your head
But there's a battle out here,
sleeping in your bed
Shivering and crying in fear
Straight up with the attack and the backlash
I crawl deeper inside this hole
At least here, it isn't so cold
my soul is torn
As I lay back and take it
Thinking 'what have you become?'
My paramour

(I don't want to be left unmourned
Abandoned by those I adored
My paramour)

Hit me if it makes you feel better
Save me if it makes you feel bitter
Hit me if it makes you feel better
Save me if it makes you feel lesser

I bend and break, my paramour

13-6, remember that day
I walked away.
Track Name: Witch Hunt
You fucking cunt
Homewrecking for fun
I'll spit on your grave
When it's all said and done
Fuck your pathetic life
Fuck your pathetic friends
Fuck your excuse
You make me fucking sick
You took the best thing about love,
and shot it fucking dead
Now wherever I walk
your shadow follows like regret

(Justin Johnson)
"I don't care if I die
I already have before
This is the price of my pain
This is the price of war
I'll do the last thing I can to rid your fucking stain
Remove all memories of your face

I hope you'll feel shamed when I blow out my fucking brains.

Survival of the grittiest, motherfucker."

Mother of god
Your son abandoned me

God Abandon Me.
