Track Name: Jesus Fish
It feels like you're next to me
Somehow I can never be free
You linger as you're wasting time
And now it feels like you're wasting mine

Now you're next to me
Wanting to believe
Want to walk away
Walk away for good
Wallow I'll believe
Wallow I'll believe
Wallow I'll believe

You try to be something you can't be
And it's a hypocrisy
You stand there like you can do no wrong
You've been here for far too long

Now you're next to me
Wanting to believe
Want to walk away
Walk away for good
Wallow I'll believe
Wallow I'll believe
Wallow I'll believe

It feels like you're next to me
Somehow I can never be free
You linger as you're wasting time
And now it feels like you're wasting mine

Now you're next to me
Wanting to believe
Want to walk away
Walk away for good
Wallow I'll believe
Wallow I'll believe
Wallow I'll believe
Track Name: Here Without You
Girl you're on my mind
Been now for quite sometime
Safe in my heart
Where you been from the start.

And now I'm here without you
Bleeding dry
Because I
Am here here waiting

They'll try to justify
When they make you cry
Until you decide
Your heart has to hide

And now I'm here without you
Bleeding dry
Because I
Am here here waiting

Give it one more try
Before you let it die
Give it one more try
Before we let it die

Want to believe that I'm sane
Want to believe that I'm sane
Want to believe that I'm sane
Want to believe

Girl you're on my mind
Been now for quite sometime
Safe in my heart
Where you been from the start

And now I'm here without you
Bleeding dry
Because I
Am here here waiting
Track Name: Anomaly
You can’t complain about the rain
If you’re not standing underneath of it
And you’ll agree when you see
You can become your own worst enemy
Then you’ll find you were left behind
The whole world passes by
The whole world passes by

Your own enemy
Your anatomy
An anomaly
Tear yourself apart and I’m fine
Your own enemy
Your anatomy
An anomaly
Tear yourself apart and I’m fine

You can’t explain why they’re insane
If you're not eating your own own shit
You’d rather be what you think is free
But you’re still a prisoner internally
Where you remain blind your state of mind
Is that the whole worlds your enemy
The whole worlds your enemy

Your own enemy
Your anatomy
An anomaly
Tear yourself apart and I’m fine
Your own enemy
Your anatomy
An anomaly
Tear yourself apart and I’m fine
Suffer and now I’m fine

You can’t complain about the rain
If you’re not standing underneath of it
And you’ll agree when you see
You can become your own worst enemy
Then you’ll find you were left behind
The whole world passes by
The whole world passes by

Your own enemy
Your anatomy
An anomaly
Tear yourself apart and I’m fine
Your own enemy
Your anatomy
An anomaly
Tear yourself apart and I’m fine
Suffer and now I’m fine
Tear yourself apart I’m fine
Track Name: Staring At The Sun
The serpent is staring at the sun
You fall asleep never to awake
You fall away never to be found
You fall away...

I'm losing my mind
I've lost my sight
I'm losing my mind
I've lost my mind

The servant serving off a golden plate
We eat it up before it's too late
They serve it up shove it in our face
Once is enough...

I'm losing my mind
I've lost my sight
I'm losing my mind
I've lost my sight

I saw thru you
I saw thru you
I saw thru you
I saw thru you

The serpent is staring at the sun
We fall asleep never to awake
We fall away never to be found
You fall away...

I'm losing my mind
I've lost my sight
I'm losing my mind
I've lost my mind

I saw thru you
I saw thru you
I saw thru you
I suffer thru you
Track Name: Breaking
You seem to think I’ll alleviate the pain
When in fact I live with it everyday

Can’t decide where to hide
Empathy, jealousy
In your eyes I can see
Your disguise is breaking

You seem to think I’ll abbreviate the pain
When in fact it will outlive us some day

Can’t decide where to hide
Empathy, jealousy
In your eyes I can see
Your disguise is breaking

Dissected in larval state
Circumcised the unborn

They seem to think these thoughts won’t stain
When in fact they’re killing us everyday

Can’t decide where to hide
Empathy, jealousy
In your eyes I can see
Your disguise is breaking
Track Name: Fear's Shadow
This is belated
But you’re so jaded
I’m not devastated
That your memories have faded

She said to me there’ll be brighter tomorrows
But it was hard to look to brighter days
When we lived inside fear’s shadow
But the day it finally came

My only friends they are pretend
They’re all in my head and that’s a lie

I masturbated
It’s overrated
And all I remember
Can’t be dismembered

She said to me there’ll be brighter tomorrows
But it was hard to look to brighter days
When we lived inside fear’s shadow
But the day it finally came

My only friends they are pretend
They’re all in my head and that’s a lie
That’s my disease now
Everythings my fault
And I can’t let it go now

It’s carbon dated
And you’re still hated
It’s hard to swallow
The fact you're so shallow

My only friends they are pretend
They’re all in my head and that’s a lie
That’s my disease now
And everythings my fault
I can’t let it go now
Track Name: Forever Alseep
Here I am laying wide awake
Replaying in my mind a life's worth of mistakes
They're all next to me, Forever asleep
Hollow eyes are staring through me

Free your mind
So divine
Free your mind
Track Name: Superglue
This is exactly what you wanted
This is exactly what you need
Follow me and I will take you
To a place that doesn't exist
Only In my mind, and yours

You try to blame me
But it's not my fault
You couldn't see
I'm dying inside
And it's because of you

You are the super glue
You hold it all together
Without you theres no order
Everything just falls apart
When I tell you I need you here
It just means I don't want to fall alone

You try to blame me
But it's not my fault
You couldn't see
I'm dying inside
And it's because of you
Track Name: Suisociety
There are kids sleeping on the street
Starving with no food to eat
While you sit in your comfy chair
But you don't care

We don't need no alcohol
We don't need no drugs at all
We don't want your make believe
We won't be the ones to leave
We won't be the ones to lose
We can live the way choose
We are all individuals
And we're free

You sit there with a grin in your comfy chair
Nodding your head in agreeance but you don't care
As long as it's all according to your plan
No sleep lost over killing your fellow man

We don't need no alcohol
We don't need no drugs at all
We don't want your make believe
We won't be the ones to leave
We won't be the ones to lose
We can live the way choose
We are all individuals
And we're free

You sit there with a grin in your comfy chair
Nodding your head in agreeance but you don't care
As long as it's all according to your plan
No sleep lost over killing your fellow man

We don't need no alcohol
We don't need no drugs at all
We don't want your make believe
We won't be the ones to leave
We won't be the ones to lose
We can live the way choose
We are all individuals
And we're free

You sit there with a grin in your comfy chair
Nodding your head in agreeance but you don't care
As long as it's all according to your plan
No sleep lost over killing your fellow man
Track Name: Termites
This shall be the end if fear
Take a good look and smash the fucking mirror
Piece by piece we'll tear it all apart
Then rebuild it all from the start
Insignificant and lost to the eyes
Stripped away and deprived of the disguise
Disenchanted youth swept beneath a rug
Put in place to live amongst the bugs

We'll never survive
The title wave
They've waxed our wings
So we can't fly away

Covered in termites
Thousands crawling across my skin
Covered in termites
Somehow I've become their king
Covered in termites
Creeping and writhing from within
Covered in termites
And I am now their king

Disenthralled and stuck down below
Led to slaughter but no one will ever know
Subject of presence sponsored fear
Take your face and smash it against the mirror
Constant regress of fear
Transparency staring in the mirror
A great darkness is looming near
Sky is swallowed as it disappears

We'll never survive
The title wave
They've waxed our wings
So we can't fly away

Covered in termites
Thousands crawling across my skin
Covered in termites
Somehow I've become their king
Covered in termites
Creeping and writhing from within
Covered in termites
And I am now their king

This shall be the end if fear
Take a good look and smash the fucking mirror
Piece by piece we'll tear it all apart
Then rebuild it all from the start
Insignificant and lost to the eyes
Stripped away and deprived of the disguise
Disenchanted youth swept beneath a rug
Put in place to live amongst the bugs

We'll never survive
The title wave
They've waxed our wings
So we can't fly away

Covered in termites
Thousands crawling across my skin
Covered in termites
Somehow I've become their king
Covered in termites
Creeping and writhing from within
Covered in termites
And I am now their king
Track Name: Flying
I’d rather be
Smothering
From inside
Than be left behind

I’m flying so high above the pain
It’s like I’ll never feel it again
It’s like it’s always been here inside my mind
Now here I stand exposing all that’s inside

She said to me
She’d rather be
Suffering
Than be with me

I’m flying so high above the pain
It’s like I’ll never feel it again
It’s like it’s always been here inside my mind
Now here I stand exposing all that’s inside

Callusing
Aortic valves
Have stopped the flow
Before letting go

I’m flying so high above the pain
It’s like I’ll never feel it again
It’s like it’s always been here inside my mind
Now here I stand exposing all that’s inside
Track Name: Peel Away
Float while sinking in sorrow
Afraid while letting go
Watch the ground approach as I fall
You can throw it all away
And I will crawl away
I’ll now crawl away for good

Peel away
The memories that I saved of you
As you tear away
I won’t need them
To forever intoxicate
A part of me
You couldn’t see
Walls coming down
Walls crumbling
We could have built
What you have killed
Thrown away in me

Pour bleach upon the shell
Scrub away her smell
Fill the wounds with salt and leave them open
Burn the ghost of you
I know they suffered too
Now they watch the bodies fall

Peel away
The memories that I saved of you
As you tear away
I won’t need them
To forever intoxicate
A part of me
You couldn’t see
Walls coming down
Walls crumbling
We could have built
What you have killed
Thrown away in me

I’m high while sinking down
Maintain while letting go
Watch the ground approach as I fall
You can throw it all away
And I will crawl away
I’ve now crawled away for good

Peel away
The memories that I saved of you
As you tear away
I won’t need them
To forever intoxicate
A part of me
You couldn’t see
Walls coming down
Walls crumbling
We could have built
What you have killed
Thrown away in me
Track Name: Purged
There comes a time
When you walk the line
It's a faded line
And then you'll burn alive
We don't need to be like you
Then they feel the need
Just to watch you bleed
There is unity
Hidden in catastrophe

We don't need to be like you
We will live the way we choose
We won't be your sacrifice
We refuse to be like you

It's not everyday
That you get to say
Things will be okay
As they decay
We don't need to be like you
It all feels the same
When we push the blame,
On to our brain
It's a crying shame

We don't need to be like you
We will live the way we choose
We won't be your sacrifice
We refuse to be like you

Like you
Like you
Like you
Like you

There comes a time
When you walk the line
It's a faded line
And then you burn alive
We don't need to be like you
Then they feel the need
Just to watch you bleed
There is unity
Hidden in catastrophe

We don't need to be like you
We will live the way we choose
We won't be your sacrifice
We refuse to be like you

Like you
Like you
