Track Name: Counting Backwards From Infinity
another day without incedent
diseased and desperate
the weight of the world grinding your spine to dust
nothing is safe
nobody innocent
psychological damage cuts wounds deeper than any blade
you know more than most
candescent
like any old shit will do
constantly renewing, form after form never quite complete
where to go now, over the edge? or back to the mundane profundity of existence
no correction
no shame
falling and flailing
answering questions you never knew existed

to pull that beating loathsome heart out of your chest
carved into the bone
never amounting to anything
a peace full protest and the after math of intervention
all too common an occurence
quiet
indiscernable yet confound
every word
a sun
every sentence
a universe
more than i can take

closing of the mind
children lay in confusion wondered what the fuck happened to the promise of a free society
flashing colours and foggy minds
like sand in a desert
a thousand pieces
a million spines
grow into one
perplexing the desire
the need to stagnate
bury your soul in broken glass
tainted by meaning

the arrogance of the west
sickle cell and all manner of irrelevancies
twice stopped and regurgitated back through the hive
an act of charity
the dignity of choice
and how to capitalise on the esentials of life
pay tax
go to school
normal
a race of theives
the taste of blood on your lips
and i still get scared every time i see an ambulance
innocent as one
evil as legion
reprimed
unstoppable
a swarm of locusts

twitching in sporadic memory loss
over the counter
that acrid taste on your tounge
desperate need
hallowed in corruption

pulsating in your chest
another fresh start
every night
cowering in sickness
the working poor

better man
holy wars
white flags hang from the clouds
no more festivities
no more pleasantries
no more flase reactions
the will to grow stronger
spoilt for choice
the taste of her kiss on your breath
a long walk in the moonlight to clear your head
clear your fucking head
give you the right
swimming against the current
never complete
always more pieces to connect
broken glass
lining your lungs
hurting to breath
and as i crawl out of the water
a dying siren
beckons me back to the waves
Track Name: Pathetic
what about you?
have you actually been through anything?
or do you just find it endearing when people take pity on you?
we all do.
we pity your sniveling self obsessive solipsism
we pity your whining shrill voice
so who's gonna cry for you now?
and all those fake suicide notes you write for yourself
have you ever actually been though anything?
or do you just find it endearing when people take pity on you

I know what you think about when you can't sleep at night
i know that dream
the one that itches away at your head and the scalp under your fingernails
I've heard you laughing when no one else is around
heard you talking to yourself walking the streets with sweaty hands cramped into tight pockets
I've been watching you for a long time
you make me sick

that fucking ugly face you pull when you cry
I've seen them all
nervous twitches anxiety attacks
you can tell me that's not a cry for fucking help
the indignity

with limbs bent all the way around
and your spit tastes like battery acid
hedonist
cunt
pleasure seeker
you'll learn in the end i know
what your capable of i know
that pain your fucking stagnant mind rots into.
gargled fucking nonsense
total fucking gibberish
i see you when you think your alone
the sounds you make in your sleep
I've heard them all
the fucking indignity

what about you?
have you actually been through anything?
or do you just find it endearing when people take pity on you?
we all do.
we pity your sniveling self obsessive solipsism
we pity your whining shrill voice
so who's gonna cry for you now?
and all those fake suicide notes you write for yourself
have you ever actually been though anything?
or do you just find it endearing when people take pity on you
Track Name: You Deserve This
Look at me
I'm talking to you
This is your fault
You deserve this
say it
you deserve this

I'm going to hurt you
it's your fault
look what you've done
look what you made me do
what will you tell them?
about your bruises
you fell
and the cuts
you deserve this

you had to push me
it's your fault
you deserve this
look at yourself
this is your fault
look at yourself

your not good enough
your pathetic
nobody will ever love you
you don't deserve love
look at me
you don't deserve love
this is your fault

this is what you get
this is what happens
when you don't listen
this is what you deserve

i don't love you
you don't deserve love
a cunt like you
no respect
so much weakness
so many tears
no respect

you deserve this
Track Name: Life Is A Seething Mass Of Pain And I No Longer Want Any Part Of It
staying up till stupid late at night again
I’ve been here before
a million times over
there's something magic about life
that sense of deja vu
still unhappy
what more does it take
I’m hiding in soft sheets
protecting my insecurities
like a child
safety net
i am my own friend
I’ve never had worse
the world will never swallow me up
and i will never die
biased
cataloged inside out
torture tactics
i will never know
I’ll pretend to care when i don’t know how i feel.
that itching feeling of continued existence
death is a natural state of being
we’re all having fun
except when we’re not
something greater
this is all just a game
abort
I’ll pretend i mean it
feel things
life goes on
and then one day it doesn’t anymore
