Track Name: Death Embrace You
Halt 
You're in vain 
Where's the joy in this pain?
You cradle little faith 
Shut your eyes they prove reason
Blindness intoxicates
What the hell you believing 

Radiant 
Once bright above
Loss of sight 
Light never comes
But beyond the wrong and right-doing
There grows afield of trees and bone 
Where branches made of stomachs 
Blossom silent souls 
The world is full 

Unhindered, wishful thinking 
Devolving planetary grain
Shrinking thru abysses 
The silent darkness
Now my plain
Here by the grace of God?
A carbon copy frightened land
Why didn't I go whole hog 
A briefcase filled with shameful men 

The earth is stripped Its gift for noise
We are haven-less
Oh Pale Death bleed me dry
Thanks for nothing my little hell
But I was never alive

Swallow the pulp greedily down the gullet, no detest
We're drinking and drugging 
this awareness to death
Find what you love, devour your remains
Cradle the grave
Joy is pain
Join us in pain

Your decadence, always unfilled 
Let me hear them scream 
It's like nothing's enough
I'm not good enough for me
For I've blown down the bottom
Of the inexhaustible mine
To breeding aberrations 
And disease of the mind.
If a God had made this world
I should not wish to be a God 
The worlds wretchedness 
Would rend my heart 
Thru violent winds that consume shit 
Fear not we're forgiven? 

The earth is stripped Its gift for noise
We are haven-less
Oh, Pale Death bleed me dry
Thanks for nothing my little hell
But I was never alive
Track Name: Serpent's Song
All of this mental confusion,
fuckin' dragging me down.
Taking me places I never
would go.
Filling my senses with sorrow
and woe.
Sick in the head, never fit in,
Sick of the people and places
you've been.
People you knew, backs turned
on you.
Don't know what the fuck to do.
I guess I'm a let down, I guess
I'm a fucking waste of time.
I'll continue to judge you,
As long as you continue to
fucking waste my life.
And pollute my fondest
memories,
With your constant presence.
Empty thoughts pouring out of
your empty heads.
Now I've grown tired, my
muscles they ache.
All this digging and digging,
day after day.
I dug my grave, it's a perfect fit.
Now fucking leave me to lie in
it.

All of this mental confusion,
fuckin' dragging me down.
Taking me places I never
would go.
Filling my senses with sorrow
and woe.
Sick in the head, never fit in,
Sick of the people and places
you've been.
People you knew, backs turned
on you.
Don't know what the fuck to
do.

Fight for the enemy.
Create sin
Making people want to give in
Irresponsibility constantly
overcomes me.
Make love, fuckin' take drugs,
fuckin' hate love.
For all we know we're gonna
die young,
So let's get fucked up till the
cops come.
Sinner or saint, sinner or saint,
The meaning's the same
You can't get away from
meaningless things,
And meaningless ways to
spend your days just wasting away.
Keep singing the Serpent's
song, keep singing along.
Pulsing through my veins, the
venom I became.
Pulsing through my veins, the
venom I became
Track Name: My Savior
There it was, oh the smell
As if rats have died in the walls
And I'd like to thank my lover 
For pulling me out from the dark

Life's been swell but that's just it
Life's been swell, so welcome to the thousand
Do you think the dead truly leave us?
They don’t, I see them whirling in pain
Off the tip of an icy barrel, baby girl
Daddy's initiation, home of the grave

I'm sick of talking to the dead
I want my best friend back 
Put his bullet in my chest instead
Oh may I join the choir invisible 
Of those immortal dead
But taking words of wisdom
Let it be in minds made better 
By their presence lived

Don't
Hang on
Why wasn't I given a chance
And the sympathy that was left in me 
Oh he took with him, oh he took with him
All I want is this pain to have some fucking purpose
It's the good fight till the end
But the simplest sin, it took him in

Sleeping flame
You are yearned 
Make night as bright as day
Burn baby, burn
Deaths knocking all the time
Do not stand in his grave and weep 
He's not there
He's not asleep

My intuition creates loneliness 
because it's dark as hell to be thinking this much 
and my vices, they've been draining my health 
here I lay, there you rot
I wish I could tell you what went on between 
From the person I was to the demons he seeks 
But he doth bestride a narrow world   
And the secrets we keep remain dishonorable 
Today we are gathered in a cult of forgiveness
Bring out the coffin, pour out your provisions
His lips are pale and still
My friend feels nothing, no pulse nor will

I wish your corpse was carried 
Open for everything to breathe
The last of life left in you soaked up by the sun
With your wings
I wish every last breath in you was soaked up by the sun
With your wings
Track Name: My Only Devil
Pull my strings, won'tcha pull my strings 
To a loathsome beat won'tcha make me dance 
Being never at a loss my only devil was the cost
I still stay pissed and lonely 
I grab a nail, hold it high
So the hammer hits me hardest 
My motives are incidental 
Just ask my other half;
My only devil

They tried to run me off
Of flesh and blood
Let mad be mad with madness
I have only three exits;
Death or Madness 

I am propagated by the sword, and ever since
I have been a subject of madness
In a moment of fruits and patients

The fear of death itself, are flung aside
But we keep on keepin on to an orgy of devils, satyrs & brides

Thoughts are powerless
Rational considerations are forgotten 
Seizing weapons
Oh we're dangerous and sensible as a mad dog
Call off the thirst, they will come
And when the cumming gets good 
I'm bound to fuck it up

Rapture I can not ascend 
I'm not done suffering yet

Cut my strings someone cut my strings
So I can gnash my teeth 
Curse the demon that spoke thus
I have lost my mind my only devil by my side,
He looked at me, said shit happens
I apologize and will reconstitute as soon as I possibly can 
But your voice just shook me to my core 
I'm no longer gentle now a soulless man

Rapture I can not ascend 
I'm not done suffering yet
Rapture I will not ascend
Now a soulless man
Rapture envision this; I rot into shit, feed the foliage 

I have no options and I can't say maybe 
It's possible or very probable 
No way, to hell with reality, I'll die in music
Never so sure our rapture to create
The riots in my heart with nothing to be done
Come ruin or rapture we all go with the sun
But less faith in familiars left me at the brink of hate
It's keeps me rotting on this planet till the end of my days
My savior’s gone, my devil’s all what's left
I could never lose you love or my angels would rest
But darkness is so god damn welcoming
So let the angels rest and the demons tear through me 
You are my deep, deadly, domestic vice
They can have there masked death, unspoken disgust
For everything surrounds hastens to decay
My Santeria, sublime and grace

God if I could see you now I'd spit right in your face
You can shove my fate right up your ass
Because you've brought nothing but pain
I'm sick of these voices going on in the back of my head 
I hope it explodes out the front of my face over and over and over again

Hush, don't cry
The world’s watching from outside 
Take the grief
Bind it to your bones, don't you dare weep
Stay silent or lie
Because my only devil’s what sold me time
Can't afford to exist 
Can't go on like this
Track Name: Brain Burner
Give me lust, malice and a detached existentialist 
Give me rampant intellectualism to cope with all this shit
Slow down, speed up 
Whatever takes death long enough to change my skin
But when I'm gone it won't be for long till I'm back in the saddle of sin

Invisible or incapable of love I can't tell which is worse
Accidents or gravity my organs, blood, bones and skin I walk were never my first
All we are is inherited so fucking toss us to the pigs
Its a head start to the gates of hell 
Am I the only one, is this loneliness?
Knife, oh look folks it's a knife in my back by my own hands
Let my blood edge your pool of no fucks giving 
Step back, devolve, and mutilate 
Wasted and tasted as the crows cry, damn this vulture land
Everything's all eaten up, the wolves are fat, soon to be dead

Just let them lay me down
Like stones that crumble 
Wood that rots, we are fragile
A hollow shell that we create 
We ate the shit we hate
I'm becoming what I loathe
I ate myself alive, I hate the taste

We, us vultures serpentine
A loaded circle of defeat
We crave the buried meat
So we now must eat each other
Drug induced western advanced
The hospital, it's for the sick
So put down my brain in the burner

Wasted never tasted anything quite like this
The bitter hunger to survive is why I gave in
Carnage candy, oh your blood is so fucking sweet
It's damned, deadly and bad for your teeth 

Invisible or incapable of love I'll take which I deserve
And the accident that has just occurred was sure no accident
Gravity threw my weight to a blade of darkness to my grave
Death can you just shed some light 
Of Inherited thoughts, this must be shame
Knife, oh look folks there's the knife embedded in my skin
Don't take it out just bury me with all the hell that I’ve commit
Eyes sewed open to the ground, the back of my head faces the clouds
Because he knows I'm looking at him, knows I'm trouble, knows I'm coming but worst of all he knows where I've been

We, us vultures serpentine
A loaded circle of defeat
crave the buried meat
crave the buried meat 

Give me lust, malice, detached existentialist 
Give me a brain burner to cope with this shit
Whatever takes death long enough to change my skin
When I'm gone, won't be for long, till I'm back in the saddle of sin
Track Name: Life Abandon You
My God fucking hates me 
Does your Lord love you? 
No, my fucking God hates me

Particles of panic,
Witness the divine crack of God’s ass
As he turns his back, you can swallow, swallow the fat 
Now I'm haggard but it's haggard in Hell
We're all haggard in Hell, our bloods now thin as water
Full of shit and I wouldn't put much weigh on it
another disappointment, father

I'm frozen with mortal terror
Engulfed by despair, GO

I have too much unfinished business 
I'm a ghost that's why hell is here 
Whoever said the past is dead 
Didn't fuck themselves like I did

But my father
My father said boy be good 
And if you can't be good
be good at whatever the hell you’re doing

Sunshine 
when you disappear let my loved ones know
I ran my cowardly ass to the devil
To get my soul back because I've lost my
home, it's where the heart is 
But these thousand dollar kisses for fifty cent souls
Got me keepin’ on creepin’ into those holes 
Oh keep on fucking it keeps the heart cold

All is fear
Nothing is love
Little wisdom 
won’t ya come?

This is fear 
This is love 
Come on Death, or you afraid of what I know? 
Come Death, Come Death, Come Death, Come

Just one question before you go:
“Does your Lord love you?” No
My fucking God hates me 
Does your Lord love you? 
My fucking God hates me

Sound is where I lay
A silent shame will never pay
These thoughts we perpetrate 
A bed of notes we'll never sing 
Music is a grave
Rock and roll's the devil’s pay 
He spends on thoughts what we create
That freedoms dead

Sound is where we lay
Our silent pain, oh what a shame
These thoughts we perpetrate 
A bed of notes we'll never sing 
Music is a grave
Rock and Roll's the devils pay 
He spends on thoughts of fake
That emo's dead and we are slaves
