Track Name: Crooked Hands
Business is slow when you're on your knees
You embrace the fear of God
True foundations stand stronger weather
Will not disregard or let it rest

Even if my chest seized up, I’d make it to the end
As my lungs, fill with tar, Il never make amends

Dear sender, I didn't know you, our time is precious, it's torn between us
Preserve the old, abort the new, no elegies, taken with you
When all is said, when all is done, I'l hold myself in humility -
When vultures come, to pick your bones, what is said for worth?

Legible to play the priest
With his wealth of lies
Slight of hand, so slight of hand..
Guilty to be judged

Business is slow when you're on your knees
You embrace the fear of God
True foundations stand stronger weather
Will not disregard or let it rest

Will not let it rest

I have lost the words to say “nothing left”
Stay true to what
Track Name: Misery King
This life provides no sympathy for me
I need to make peace with my mortality
Dethroned, cast out on the songs our fathers raised
In beds with thieves, rejoice no heroes praised

Ink, heart, blood, pen
Honesty made a martyr of me
For what is at stake, watch it burn

Tear arms sycophants, pouring down every plague
Tyrants and spores in rapture salvation is made
The ghost of truth held in clandestine labs
Strike one, strike two, this misery is all I have

What I am, is falling away, my sanity is a nightshade

Say it once, say it again, like the ink in my heart, like the blood in this pen
Track Name: Her Casket Holds No Bones
Are our lives, our biggest disguise - masked in deceit, just to repeat..
Well planes will fall out of the sky, these snakes will take back what is theirs
A knife in the chest is far too easy to repair

We are a generation that will feed itself
We are a generation that will need itself
We are a generation that will eat itself
We are a generation that fucked itself

I just performed surgery on myself, I shattered a thousand promises
I cut away my pleasantries, and slept off most the pain

I will talk a thousand words
I will barter a thousand hurts
I will suffice in this
I will fail in what I give

We are a generation that will feed itself
We are a generation that will eat itself
Track Name: Nausea
Im sleepless... too far gone tonight, it crawls up inside of me
Were just coping, not commanding - just like the way of my life
Hope stains these walls - pollinate spores - the skylines aren’t for us

In mires, in dirge, Im sick, so sick

I will catch alight, over the flames, in the sky

Hear my words break
Show you this frame
Structure our sense
Fight off sickness
In scars I sit
The hope, war in our blood

Blood shot eyes
-with-
I'm failing to try

And as I sat staring at you, I could (see)feel the fear trembling in your legs

I opulate, you ovulate
Track Name: Matriarch
Jester in the court of fools you hunted me dry
Set me on your mantle and bled me dry
Flavour of the month, in the corpse of divinity
Champions of lust, you sidelined the sin in me

Of everything you were meant to be, meant nothing to me
Your lips parted so partially in disbelief

We have sown the seeds of sin, wash me in your guilt
Use this for personal gain, the king must die
My white goddess, Im covered in truth and bile
From the womb spew forth the dogs of war and kill the king
Track Name: Sea of Teeth/Bleak Eyes
This wasn’t a war, this was matricide
Im buying tomorrow so I can live today
New abortions, see this through
Kill what is inside, bleed it out

Sea of teeth / bleak eyes

This wasn’t a war, this was matricide
Im buying tomorrow so I can live today
Track Name: Heir of the Dog
