Track Name: Always Low
nowhere to go, nothing to see
lifeless shape in purest form
no one to love, nothing to feel
poisoned forest without trees

keep your head down
fall on your knees
always fucking low
Track Name: Deadbeat
i break the ties and cut off the roots
of every person i've ever known
something inside that makes me sick
every day of my fucking life

I've got no love in me
Just pure disgust
I worship every moment when
I can lay down and feel cold of the ground

empty on the inside
worthless being
breathing scum
rotten alive
Track Name: Full Of Empathy
another life
ruined by
mindless scum
with no fucking heart

one day you'll fucking pay
go die in shit
Track Name: Empty
just cut off your tongue, get rid of the eyes
no more words and fatal glances
take the sharpest knife, rip out your guts
body with black hole on the inside

out of mind
out of life
no regrets
no remorses
Track Name: Harm Reduction
overdosed medicaments, blind and lifeless eyes
the only way to reduce this pain is to end
this fucking life

paralyzed limbs
pale, dry skin

world is such a nice place
without those people around
look at the joy we have in our eyes
we're all just going to die
Track Name: K-141
there's no more air
in this fucking can
and no one cares
we are left for dead

lungs hurt much less than
loosing our minds
water and fire fights
to take our lives

how does it feel
taking one last breath
Track Name: Decomposition
pure beauty deconstructed in every fucking part
broken picture of a face that once smiled

a knife, a wound, a scar

fatal victim of perverse mind
soft and fragile skin becomes
his new physiognomy
Track Name: Taxidermist
separate my skin
from this useless flesh
give me a new life
fuck this wretched heart

fill me with poison
and watch me grow
Track Name: Enjoy Your Heaven
heaven is made up of flesh and bones
living organism, putrid, wasted

enjoy your heaven
your harmful way
to everlasting pain

your body is the temple of
every sacred thing sentenced to rot
Track Name: There Is No Unity In Chaos And No Joy In Disorder
split my brain
look how the nerves stray
and fuck with my mind
and identity
and self-confidence

running out
the only way i know
has led me to this
dead-end point
i'm exhausted
i'm sick of myself
i'm sick of you
and everyone
and everything
Track Name: Self-Awareness
self-awareness is failure of the nature
and we're like other kinds living our lives
until we die

nothing more than breathing flesh
but proud of ourselves just selfish scum
searching for sense

the act of life is all we can expect
there's nothing more worth being embraced
the mind is not enough to make the world explained
it's hard but true lesson to learn
