Track Name: Silver Tongue
Go ahead and drag me down into your fucking hole.
Fuck the life you gave me; I don’t want it anymore.
Tear it into shreds.
Modify what’s left into a silent, passive, nihilistic, shallow shell of a man.

Smudge my reflection into a feigned portrait.
Construct illusions buried in bullshit.

Disintegrate me; make me fucking weak.
Manipulate me; pull on my strings with your…

…indoctrination, and cultivation, but all it does is fuel my aggravation.

Erase my name, erase my fate, wrap me in chains and show me how to hate.
Track Name: Tape Worm
I feel no love – just agony.
It’s a parasitic worm feeding off of me:
spitting poison back into my veins;
replacing blood with misery and pain.

You’ll find me digging a hole;
pulling the dirt over my head.
Buried in sorrow and regret;
dying to forget.

No compassion; no mercy.
Consume me or release me.

I can’t stand this fucking feeling.

I feel no love – just agony.
It’s a parasitic worm feeding off of me:
spitting poison back into my veins;
replacing blood with misery and pain.

Consumed by hate, I fucking writhe in pain.
I feel no love.

No compassion; no mercy.
Consume me or release me.

My mind is not my own.
I’ve become a slave to this…
Track Name: Death Rattle
Consume me or release me.
I can’t stand this agony. My body writhes in pain.
This hate feeds off of me replacing blood with agony.
Replacing love with agony.
Track Name: Soothsayer
The next few years look pretty bleak.
You got a future; I got this fucking disease:
the delusions that plague my mind
and the heartache that runs my life.

You can see quite clearly there’s nothing left of me, but you keep fucking reaching.

What the fuck do you want from me?
There’s not a cent to my name. I got no reason to breathe.
Nothing to give; there’s nothing I own
but a dead heart trapped in my fucking bones.

You keep trying to drag me back to hell,
but I crossed the coals, sold my soul,
and dug my way out with my nails.

Goddamnit, it’s looking bleak.
You got a future, I just got this fucking disease.
So if you think of me, let me know;
I’ll still be here on my fucking own.
I’ll never make it out alive.
Track Name: In Exile
Repulsive:
I’m disgusted by everyone around me.
Resentment
leaves me cold. I’m stuck here alone.

I’m sorry. I am so fucking sorry, but I was born with this curse so I’ll
carve an X into my forehead, grab my shit, and leave the world dead in the dirt.

Repulsive:
I’m disgusted by you, and you, and this
Resentment
leaves me cold. I’m stuck here alone. I’m stuck here alone.

I saw my future in the eyes of those weak captive souls.
I will not become ambivalent, submissive, and lost in a vision.

I’m sorry. I am so fucking sorry, but I was born with this curse so I’ll
carve an X into my forehead, grab my shit, and leave the world dead in the dirt.
Track Name: Blind World
Crack open my skull;
reach down my throat
searching for anything to signify a life fulfilled.

Carve open my chest,
face my emptiness,
wipe away your tears, accept your fate, and face your savage death.

Wipe away your tears, accept your fate,
And face your savage death.

Born into a blind world awaiting a savage death
I walked insipid streets in the shadows of regrets.
Face my emptiness.

Wipe away your tears, accept your fate,
And face your savage death.

Tear out the sutures that bind your eyes,
and through the sanguine haze witness the truth that you denied.

Face your savage death.
