Track Name: Bad Love Clusterfuck
I feel the same old sickness coming back again
My stomach acid digesting all that's left inside
Even my death wants me to suffer
That's why it's keeping me alive

Let's say a long prayer for our schizophrenic sides
God of destruction or goddess of demise
Why continue if this is all we get?
You should slit your wrists to this

This stagnation is taking it's toll
We can no longer bear the load
I can't remember how it used to go
So quick, so much easier than this

Now it only bores a hole

The only thing constant is change
Futile existence. A temporary world
Spiraling toxically out of control
Obliterating our souls

There's a funeral going on
A wedding. A birth
A moonlight mass of death and flesh
Awake from this moving coma everyday to witness the mindfuck, baby!
Track Name: Wipe You Out
I don't think there is another way
All of these fucking hand grenades
Don't even flinch or blink an eye
All it is is one more dead guy

Kill! Kill! Make him disappear
Missiles and bullets fill the air

Good. Eradicate. Destroy
Population down. Problem solved

Legions brought down
By the hand of man claimed God
Believe! Believe in the violent sounds

We can wipe you out
We can take you down
We can wipe you out
We can break you down
No doubt

Need to conjure up the hatred from within
Need to conjure up dirty bomb conspiracies
Arsenals of anything that kills
Knives and tanks and poison gas
Things that destroy entire cultures
Things that wipe out this fucking world

I don't think there is another way
All of these fucking hand grenades
Don't even flinch or blink an eye
All it is is one more dead guy

Legions brought down
By the hand of man claimed God
Believe! Believe! We can wipe you out

Good. Eradicate. Destroy
Population down. Problem solved
Track Name: Napalm
Napalm
Black heart. Forever gray soul
Take me
Deeper in darkness we go

It hurts so bad to say goodbye
Every time I think of you, I die
A little more inside
Forever lacking the calm of resolve

Napalm
Black heart. Forever gray soul
Take me
Deeper in darkness we go

Cold. Distant. Disconnected
A chaosphere of thought & feeling
I know why we’re crying
We don’t have to talk about it

Even after all this time has passed
All I feel is broken glass
Fire & blood on an empty page
Fill it up with ink & rage
Bandages and tourniquets
Try to cope. Deal with it
Once I passed the hardest part
Swung full circle back to start
Even after all this time has passed
All I feel, broken glass
Fire & blood, empty page
Fill it up, ink & rage
Can't maintain all this pain
Suffering
Let us pray

Through the static of space and time
I feel your heart die perfectly with mine
And as the letters fade away
I’m embracing a deeper shade of gray

Napalm
Track Name: Backfill
Chipping away at the foundation of self
The architecture was by somebody else
Break through the surface of the perfect disguise
Corpses of regret and a lifetime of spite

Chipping away at the shrine of pride
Backfill in the source of demise

Lies. Alibis. Who am I?
Everytime I fill the hole
The sides erode

Since the dawn of time
I have watched you cross every line
All your thoughts and visions. Empty prayers
I want you to forget everything you are
Your hopes and dreams mean nothing to me

Vendetta ain’t worth my time
But I’ll participate anyway
Help you redefine
Cold and dark embrace
Help to ease your mind
Of all the love inside
I can tell you anything
Before this wrath I bring
Track Name: Retribution
Disintegration from a timeless strain
Can’t sleep ‘cause the grip has been slipping again
Retrogressive dreams and treacherous sins
Relax! We can watch 'em over and over again

Everything that's meaningful in your life will be destroyed

Beyond the shadow of a doubt
There is no easy way out
I'd tear myself from life and limb
To start it all over again
But in a world of choices made
The consequence remains the same
And retribution will be paid
Long after the grave

Annihilation lingers in the air
Choking all the beauty from our lives
There is no way that we can go on like this
We can't keep testing the line

Everything that's meaningful in your life will be destroyed

Beyond the shadow of a doubt
There is no easy way out
I'd tear myself from life and limb
To start it all over again
But in a world of choices made
The consequence remains the same
And retribution will be paid
Long after the grave

It don't matter
What's the point?
I can't feel you
Compassion is left for dead
Like disease, we fall apart
From decay
Scourge of a stoic heart
This is nothing
It gets worse
The bottom is still so far
Let's keep it going
Linger by death
Grip the thread
Retribution

It takes everything I have
Not to disconnect
Jump into my car
Drive into the ocean
Drown myself to meet God
"What the fuck is wrong with you?
Look at what you've done
What are we supposed to do?"
Track Name: Adrift
The infinite symphony of dread
Lost in a sea of discontent
Can you tell me what it's worth
To be born unto this Earth

Tangled in uncertainty
Self rejection and disbelief
Doubt reigns down through the air
Sought faith that wasn't there
I still feel nothing

The infinite symphony of dread
Lost in a sea of discontent
Can you tell me what it's worth
To be born unto this Earth

I could stop the world for you
Show you my solitude
What else could we do?
Cast our souls back to the sea

Conspire against ourselves
The structure's wrought with flaws
Bring it down around us
We bring it down around us all

Truth be told I'm tired
Of unspoken words pushed aside
Drowning in this atmosphere
And choking on it's disdain
While broken hope washes up with the waves

I have lost my way
Track Name: Eternal Sleep Lord
Eternal Sleep Lord
Crusher of the underworld
Give it every prayer
but it still seems that there's...

No place to hide from your doom. Nowhere to run
Once you become an enemy of the sun
No place to hide from your doom. Nowhere to run
I have become the enemy of the sun

Violent amounts of stress
Surfacing through my chest like the apocalypse

It’s painful, isn’t it?
When everything falls apart and there’s an emptiness

Consuming the bright eyes and sky
The vortex of desolation

No place to hide from your doom. Nowhere to run
Once you become an enemy of the sun
No place to hide from your doom. Nowhere to run
I have become the enemy of the sun

Let it go
Misery lives there
Unleash the wolves of static to devour the suffering
Look your fate right in the fucking eye
Realize your limitations
Don’t you fucking lie

Open up the closets
Pull the skeletons out
Put them in their coffins
Put them in their coffins
