Track Name: Lunar Caustic
Nerveless tissue, no impulse, horridly it pressures the scull
Flowing out with thoughts through orbits
The shortest way
To cut aggravating rumble, to strangle pulsation
Till it crushes all
Invites the void
Invites the silence

Proud flesh
Tear it all out, tear it now, tear before it’s too late

Proud flesh
Don’t let it grow, don’t let go, never let it steam

Proud flesh
Scratch out with nails, scratch it all, let it bleed away

Proud flesh
Throw it away, watch it die, before it starts to live

Rampant thoughts intertwine
Too many pullulated
No turning back
All said and done
Hide in the corner and punch the empty space

It is so warm, I feel tranquility
It feels so warm, I feel tranquility
May have all been just a bad dream
May have all been a hallucination
Maybe I just forgot the bitter taste

No…

Don’t you save me
Track Name: Waiting For The Bodies Down The River Floating
Inside the pain, I count how many breaths I have left
Inside the pain, I count how many heartbeats I have left
Inside the pain, I feel the lack of impulse in my flesh
Inside the pain, I have no strength to breathe in the air
Inside the pain, no more caressing spiked memories

I miss you
Or maybe I don’t
I know you would like me to

Insides crumbled with the vice of hopeless thoughts
Look at what you’ve done don’t turn away from my corpse
My existence smashed against the wall
See how fast it starts to decompose

Why me?

Insides crumbled with the vice of hopeless thoughts
Look at what you’ve done don’t turn away from my corpse
My existence smashed against the wall
Be transparent something I can easily ignore

When unrelenting voices
Try to exert control
Sit by the river
And watch the bodies flow

In prayer
Fold your hands
In prayer
Bowels burn
In prayer
All my faith
In prayer

Multiple collecting of self
Putting pieces together
Something finished
To be a human as expected
Uniform, a closed constellation
Fixed pattern of hemoglobin

Insides crumbled with the vice of hopeless thoughts
Look at what you’ve done don’t turn away from my corpse
My existence smashed against the wall
See how fast it starts to decompose
Track Name: Feverish
You broke me, completely
All
You broke me, completely
All

Come and stay
See how it is here
Pleasant and
Know that I will be
Distressed
If you walk away
So maybe
You’ll show what you hide there

You broke me, completely
All
You broke me, completely
All
Track Name: Nasciturus
So warm here in this flesh
Is this my home, mother?
One formless thing, nothing
Growing to be a disturbance
The silence was my greatest friend
No more, no more
So safe in here in this flesh
Is this my home?

Why… You try to tear me away
Scrape out, erase, remove
Would be better if you go to sleep
It’ll only hurt for a moment

The beat of life squashed by cruel existence
Feeling almost like a fucking God
Quick before the heart starts beating
Quick before the neurons merge

I sacrifice my own blood
I sacrifice my own blood for better tomorrow

Mother, tell me is this my
It’s so dark here, no place to hide
I beg you mom, don’t leave me now
What if God looks here
And finds out what you’ve done

Decision stained with blood
Forever a thorn on soul and heart
Decision stained with blood
Forever a thorn on soul and heart
Decision stained with blood
Forever a thorn on soul and heart
Decision stained with blood
Forever a thorn on soul and heart

Becoming a God
Track Name: Meredith
Dream my baby in the foam of wave
Let your freedom be your grave
Track Name: Decimation
Crumbled kingdom
Dead piece of life
With nothing left to burn or kill inside

Dark trembling monsters
Surrounding me
Elusive shadows flowing through the air

I swallow all
As my lungs burn
Crawling, bleeding searching for a pulse

So far from the eyes of God
Mud stained martyred body
So far from careless happiness

Pulling out the tool
Of frantic devastation
In a ditch dying lonely like a whore
Track Name: The Presence Of Goddess
The shadows gathered
Whispering
Twisting deformed lips
Who talk no more

No eyes to see
No ears to hear
Condemnation

The presence of Goddess
Reborn in flesh, bathe in wine
With tearing grin forces the heart
To worship her as Goddess
Puts her merciless arms around
Clings with bloody nails
Finds its way to the heart

The presence of Goddess
Reborn in flesh, bathe in wine
Clinging with bloody nails
With tearing grin forces the heart

I feel your grace
In my body
I feel your grace
In my gutter

I feel your grace
It will be better
I feel your grace
It won’t be better
I feel your grace
It will be better
I feel your grace

I feel your grace
It won’t be better
