Track Name: Deathbeds
spare me the doubt
spare me the misery
Death's great black hand
shall grace me eventually

the only difference is
that I have to live with it

spare me the doubt
spare me the misery
Death's great black hand
shall grace me eventually

the only difference is
that I have to live with it

doom me with feeling
curse me with thought
if there is a God
he knows not what he wrought

spare me the doubt
spare me the misery
Death's great black hand
shall grace me eventually

I don't want a heaven
or eternal bliss
I've briefly tasted existence
and I'm already sick of it
Track Name: loathe
soaked and drowned
in a sea of spite
makes it hard for me
to see the light

I see parts of myself
still littered in you
I hate that you hold them
and I hate them in myself too

the venom drips from your silver tongue
but you still don't dare to lie, and tell me I'm wrong
so now I know what this was all about
you saw a light in my eyes
and you snuffed it out

spout your shit elsewhere
you're not welcome here
binge, purge, then regret
until there's nothing left
Track Name: withered
I'm so worn
beyond my age
every snap spirals
into fits of rage
because in my head
only depression thrives
the pain is the only sign
I'm still alive

under the surface
I'm just an empty shell
I've quickly grown worthless
existence is my prison cell

I'm so worn
beyond my age
every snap spirals
into fits of rage
because in my head
only depression thrives
the pain is the only sign
I'm still alive

set me free
erase me

under the surface
I'm just an empty shell
I've quickly grown worthless
existence is my prison cell
under the surface
I'm just an empty shell
I've quickly grown worthless
existence is my prison cell

cut me off
cast me away

though my flesh remains intact
my mind decays
left to my own devices
I'll dig my own grave
Track Name: scum
rot
nothing more
rot
to your core
what
is there left?
what
could I expect?

from you

turn
run
traitor
scum

kick
kick and scream
no one's listening

turn
run
traitor
scum

so
it never ends
your treacherous ideals descend
so try
try in vain
to scapegoat me again

turn
run
traitor
scum

keep on
continue
this way
no depth, for you, is too far
keep on
continue
this way
live like the scum that you are
keep on
continue
this way
no depth, for you, is too far
keep on
continue
this way
live like the scum that you are
Track Name: frailure
if you're looking for letdowns
look no further than I
and watch your ambitions
shrivel and die

like some kind of frail glass sculpture
I crack and I split
and I shatter and fragment
and all goes to shit

no good ever comes of me
believe me, I've tried
but shed no tear for me
my own eyes are dry

I care not for upholding banners
or meeting your every unfair standard
I will not be a sign of the time
I'll die alone, but I'll die with a spine

there are smiles on the faces
of these mindless drones
each one of them property
somebody owns
with false songs and promises
force-fed till you choke
while all of your dreams
seem to go up in smoke

I'm hateful and bitter
and there's no better way
to keep myself crimson
while your whole world fades grey
Track Name: coping methods
they told me time would heal
and this hurt would fade
but this pain I feel
won't go away
I want to be my old self
just for a while
maybe then I could manage
to fake a fucking smile

so I kick and scream
I push and shove
because I know
your ego outgrew my love
and I still can't bear
to see your face
because the one who wore it once
has been replaced

your putrid scent still lingers here
this place reeks of regret and fear
a shrine to the callous, to the obtuse
a testament to your abuse

do I hate myself?
or do I hate you?
or is this some kind of fucked up feeling
that's outgrown me too?

I miss those days
when I could hold you close
and my rage-fuelled fits
were just thorns on a rose
a small dent in me
but I was still whole
a complete human being
until you left me cold
in the black of night
I'd be lying awake
then a blinding light
and the bed would vibrate
so I'd open my eyes
and I'd check the phone
I'd see your name and smile
because I knew I wasn't alone

but those days are dead
dead as can be
dead as I am inside
dead as you are to me
