Track Name: Vermin
Indifference, complacence and disease.
I'm becoming these.

Love, hope, and purity.
It's all dead to me.

Vermin, filthy vermin.
Feeding, fucking and giving nothing.

Hate infests this godless, wretched race.

Vermin, filthy vermin.
Feeding, fucking and giving nothing.
Track Name: Infections
I don't give a fuck anymore.
Don't expect me to get caught up,
you're so self-indulgent.

Get out and get fucked.

This time I'm giving up on saving you,
I've seen enough.
The best part is that you're running out of luck,
you're fucking stuck.
Today I'm letting go and going home,
I'm outta' love to give.
I'm leaving you,
you're on your own,
they'll fuck you up.

I hope you choke.
I'm fucking set on the rope.
I hope you die slow and that they hang you high.

I don't give a fuck anymore.
Don't expect me to get caught up,
you're so self-indulgent.

Get out and get fucked cunt.

Nobody cares about what youre going through,
fuck you.

Bitch, you're so spineless it's nearly criminal.
Resort to violence, we'll push you down to see you fall.

It's not even tragic 'cause you talk so much fucking shit.
I'm not gonna empathize.
You've cried wolf so many fucking times.

We'll push you down to see you fall.
Nobody wants to help you up.
We're watching you get down and get fucked.
I've seen enough toxic bacteria.

This time is the last time I watch you throw it all away.
I let you ruin everything.

Dissapointing piece of shit.
You are useless and you know it.
Track Name: Mountains
I can't even think about it at all,
I'm afraid to see the future.
Look man I admit it, it scares me.

Took a good long look at myself in the mirror to see,
we're not so different from eachother, we're dwelling on the same shit.
It's such a heavy burden that its breaking my back,
but I won't let it bury me now, not ever.
I will make it through if it takes everything I have,
I owe it to you, I owe it to myself.

This is the strength that will carry me home,
over the towering mountain.

My tireless apiration lifts my aching body over the towering mountain.
It is the endless steadfastness in my bones that will carry me home.

For just this once I'm gonna stand up for myself and I won't back down like before;
Not gonna move in the wrong direction.
I'll let them know, I have my eyes set on the horizon and this moment in my heart;
Won't let it go.

I've been asleep and so afraid,
but I know I have the strength, it grows in me.

I've lived in terror and doubt in myself,
but I know I am the blade, that cuts to daybreak.

I am awake.

Took a good long look at myself in the mirror to see,
we're not so different from eachother, we're dwelling on the same shit.

It's such a heavy burden that its breaking my back,
but I won't let it bury me now, not ever.
I will make it through if it takes everything I have,
I owe it to you, I owe it to myself.

Over mountains to start again.
You carried me home.
Track Name: Plagues
The night has arrived with your firstborn fruits so fresh and ripe for the picking.
The air is alive, swirling with a million flies hungry for flesh.
I am both good and evil.
Now the Nile has turned to blood.

Rivers flow red.
Women weep and Infants wail.
Your men have failed.
Their children lay dead.
Pharaoh lament and take heed of what I have said,
The old gods have fled.
And in their stead, I come to bring you torment;
Righteous sacrament.
I'll strike fear into your hearts, with hail and fire and darkness.

This is the end of your treachery.
The people of the true god will be set free.

Spreading scores of vermin and disease upon your vile cities.
Everyone will know the power vested within me.
I tried, I tried to warn you of terrible things to come.
The trials and tribulations.
I told of many manifestations.

Lead your lambs to slaughter.
Life born from the river water.

Bring out you're sheep and cut through the fleece.
Spread the blood above. I'll spare the worthy families.
Bring out your sheep and cut in deep.
You better get on your knees and plead.
Worship me.

In swarms of flies your bodies twist and writhe in pain.
Locusts fill the skies and they shall feast on the fruits flowered by my divine hand.

Plagues.
I'll take what is mine.
Track Name: Thirsts
Painted with feelings of jealousy and isolation.
Every song she sings brings tidings of consternation.
I have seen things that would make you fucking sick and think
about the drinks you thirst for.

What did she see in me?
I am ever eager.
Wanting.
I'm waiting for something, someone to help me.
I'm forever contemplating this choice.
Writing down my thoughts.

Painted with feelings of jealousy and isolation.
Every song she sings brings tidings of consternation.
I have seen things...

Tracing her finger tips with my eyes.
Silhouettes of second chances hang lifeless in the skies.
I have thought of things that would bring you to your fucking knees.
On the seas there sails a ship of broken memories.
A man overboard forever thirsting.

Break the hourglass, spill the sand and stop the silence.
Shatter the compass, gaze forward and be your guidance.
What did she see in me?
I am ever eager.

Wanting to quench this love lost with drowning in water.
Thirsting.

Clouds gather.
Rain is washing away the image of her face.
Her visage erased.
Track Name: Hungers
Disgusting.
I reach for the bottle.
I'm obsessing.
My thoughts are misted with codeine and alcohol.

Not really living at all.
Polaroids of dimming lights hide the cloudy whites of the walls.
She whimpers and cries as she crawls away from me.

I take another shot of whiskey and force myself upon the vulgar whore.
I try to ignore the horror in her eyes.
She tries to keep me away, helplessly.
Her body squirms under my weight.
I kiss softly along her neck.

It all started with a shot glass,
A line of coke and a pack of cigarettes.
A plume of smoke; a thick fog of falling ash smothers my room.
I am aroused and wandering out to be amused.

I strike at night and satisfy my appetite.

Following closely behind.
She looks back and makes eye contact.
A smile sneaks across her lips.
My heartbeat skips.
I'm going to take her home with me.
I'll show this slut what suffering is supposed to be.
Soulless and empty.

It all ended with a heartless and cold moment of callousness.
Just like the tattered remnants of her dress;
her vacant and butchered body.
Sick, I'm nauseated by the bitch.
This foulest hunger.

No one is watching us anymore.
A precious memory ours alone to keep.
She'll dream of this in endless sleep.
Soon I'll breathe in this wilted flower.
Inhale her pollen of stolen ecstacy.

Feel pain no longer and pacify my hunger.
You're my feast.

A tumbler gripped firmly in one hand,
a revolver swaying gently in the other.
Quivering, my body shakes with revulsion.
Her life ends. My life extends.
I am well fed.
