Track Name: Children On The Road
Vergil exclaims
A change of heart
Godlike in pain
Pathetic quiet
The tears of Christ
Cut from the eyes
Distant oration
Pathetic quiet

In liberty
I'll leave it behind
Track Name: One Month
Pierced glass
Broken skin
Fat bulges forth and
Blood coalesces
Tears not shed
Relinquish control and
Comfort your friends and
Die

Stitch

Place of standing
Slip of the tongue
Blood on the floor

Laws without morals are useless

Blood on the floor
Light of the mind
Track Name: The Idiot
Breathe in
Breathe in
Keep breathing in
Fill your bags with
Stagnant time and
Echo shelters

Sit in delight
Resume your life
Stand in the road
Speak as if never spoken to

Fall down the well
No roots, no hell
We enter separate homes
We share nothing

All hope
Track Name: Cop
Expose your throat
Rear your head
Silence! Silence! Silence!
In defense we wed
You'll never feel
The elation of being wanted
At the point of collapse

A cry for loss
Inept and silent
Reduced in all but name

Cemented in contrary emotional politics
Silence! Silence! Silence!
Compensation to the families of artists!

Cry for the death of art!

First sex
Now art
Make up your fucking mind
Become unhinged
Or get in the fucking line

You child!
You cunt!
Stab me in the throat or let me continue!
Track Name: How Much Land Does A Man Need
Optimal point of concern
I died so I could come back
I'm hurting on purpose in solitude

I am the tree cut down
Mouth opened and
Fucked to health
I'm sorry you're sorry
I'm glad you're well

Celebrate the return of judiciary solace
I must keep us awake

Prosper
Perish
Answer
Reflex

I'll converse fluently
In the language of subtlety
It is not my native tongue
But I wear it well

Optimal point of concern
I died so I could come back!
Track Name: Fall And Remain
Footsteps in the snow
Merely resting
Pushed in falter
Seemingly
Only seemingly
Remain with roots in the soil

Father! I know how you feel!
Mother! Thank Christ you know it's real!

Lead by example
Crush the roots
Cut it down
Manage
Remain
Track Name: Leather
Glistening mimetics
It's okay to be alive
To respect
But not prosper
To fail
To fail
To fail again
Throw away aesthetics
Destroy past revelations
They lie and cloud judgement
Destroy aesthetics
Substance limited
And fail again
Destroyed
Fucked to health
Denied
Past revelations
They lie
And cloud your judgement
So you will fail again
Track Name: Goat
FUCK YOUR FUCKING COP SHIT
Track Name: One Of Many
NO WORDS ONLY SOUNDS
Track Name: Dramatism And Rebirth
Drowned in solid air
Knife to the temple
Painless desecration

But it's enough
To be complete
To show mechanics
Effective

My eye
Sees nothing
But all of it
And I wish to see more
Diagnostic revised in extremis

Disciplinary physical politics
Learn the pattern
Go to 10

The mechanics of solitude
Light content weaponised
Syndication to become complete
Resign your hunger
Tap the source

Tap the source!
Track Name: Sertraline
The pain of being right
Held down by airtight boots
Gravity condescending
Desecration of silence!
Of art!
Of time!
Of cash!
Of sex!
In death we trust
In life we end
FUCKED CLEAN
End funny!
Tell a joke where no one falls down and roar the punchline until your lungs pierce themselves!
Tired of your shit!
Tired of your melodramatic sex death!
Clean until the end!
Covered in piss!
Dead before dawn!
WORK CONQUERS ALL WORK CONQUERS ALL WORK CONQUERS ALL
Track Name: You'll Wish You Were Me
Sun ravaged skin removed
Pent up remission
Stuck on a pike and lulled to sleep

My friends lie full and barbed inane
In no one's name
In no one's name
I ride the tail
Flowing down
I make my name
In no one's name

And walk for miles
My son weeps
On a table and I say
No!
It's not real!
I am not here and
Art is dead!

Atrophy only gets me off
Cut your body up
Clean in the end
Haute bourgeoisie concern!
I am no longer burdened

And I walk for miles
On this table
Weeping as the knife is drawn
Screaming
"ART IS DEAD!"

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Track Name: In Your Name
I'll change myself
In your name
I'll live forever
In your name
I'll beat one half to death
In your name
I'll marry your mind
In your name
I'll cut out my skull
In your name
I'll replace it with fortitude
In your name

I'll love you forever
In your name
