Track Name: Proteus
lonesome creature
bastard of the mother earth
degenerated species

no piece of mind

heart in need
hated by all living things
suffer forever
Track Name: Endless Humiliation
abandoned, wretched
fucked from the start
so it's hard to
respect yourself
nothing to give
from your wasted heart
fuck this shame
and fuck this life
Track Name: Jonestown
every family is going
through its hard times
but there is nothing
that love can't bear

"the bodies are lying everywhere
and this burning sun helps them disappear"

show me the way
and let me out
with joy in my heart
Track Name: Seizures
lie in convulsions
limbs are shaking in violent dance
and this gurgling sound, it's just my voice

the end is near
i see no light there
Track Name: Joy Of Life
i've seen the mothers
holding their dead children
they're weeping
they're mourning
and crawling on their knees
i've seen the piles of bodies
with eyes rolled back
and limbs twisted
in eternal suffering
all of them couldn't live
as they wanted
so all of them are mute now
Track Name: Seeds
scatter the seeds of hatred
for myself and every living being
walk through wasted land
which I used to call "home"

"that corpse you planted last year in your garden,
has it begun to sprout? will it bloom this year?"

i don't think so
but if anything will grow
I'll crush it down
