Got to make it happen
I've got no choice
It's my lot to silence your voice

Time to make a stand
I've got to cut you off, my friend
You wonder why
And you wake up when it's time to die

It's become my problem
It's become my chore
I have to make sure you're no more

Only one of ten
Designed to bring you to your end
You wonder why
I don't shoot you in the ….

Once more and I will find
My perfect alibi

I don't have no answers
But I have no doubt
It's my job to rub you out

Soon it's just we two
And I'll do what I have to do
I watch you cry
It's time to finally say good ….

Once more and I will find
My perfect alibi
I'll do what I have to do
To rid this world of you

Avenue Victor Hugo Portland, Oregon

Avenue Victor Hugo has been tearing up Portland, OR since they formed in 2011. A power trio, they mix up rock, pop, metal, and 70's psych into one big ball of sound. AVH is well worth the investigation.
