Track Name: The Cult
There's a house on the mountain side
Where a sick sect of people reside
And they recite their hateful spew
Take your words and use them against you
Fire
I'm so tired
Fire
I'm so tired
What they do is rearrange your thoughts
Make you something, what you think your not
But I'm not scared, I have no fear
Gonna burn this place into thin air
Fire
I'm so tired
Fire
I'm so tired
And tonight I plan my escape
The moon is full and my heart is filled with rage
with this match, gasoline
Gonna show this city what I mean
Track Name: Tragedy of Hypocrisy
I see the sea and the sea sees me
Seeing the signs of intimacy
The narcissists that use their lips
Those pessimistic lists 'round their wrists
I am falling into patterns
While I watch the forest burn
I know it don't really matter
Just the way the world will turn
The vantage point that does exploit
The mind confined in time goes blind
Monopolies, commodities
The tragedy of hypocrisy
I am falling into patterns
While I watch the forest burn
I know it don't really matter
Just the way the world will turn
The gleam of screens destroying dreams
Pictural scenes are vanishing
I see the sea but the sea seized me
Showing no signs of empathy
I am falling into patterns
While I watch the forest burn
I know it don't really matter
Just the way the world will turn
Track Name: Atrophy
Electric shocks keep me up at night
Electric shocks keep me up at night
I know there's no way to escape
Stacked events determine fate
I've sewn the quilt
I feel the wrath
it's obvious when you do the math
Exhaustion follows me around
While bodies buried into the ground
I know I'm cursed
I won't forget
That my needs are scarcely met
Cause I am off my meds in my bed
With the fog clear things are so real
Climbing steps, I'm so repressed
I'm sick of the way I feel
Don't come around I'll bring you down
'Cause I'm a target for a frown
Catastrophy mental atrophy
And I have a got a grid on my skin
Not sure where I have been
But when I show no one can see
This parallel reality
I recognize the patterns here
Where burns are interior
As I search for my answers
Society riding sick with cancers
I am off my meds in my bed
With the fog clear things are so real
Climbing steps, I'm so repressed
I'm sick of the way I feel
Down't come around I'll bring you down
'Cause I'm a targe for a frown
Catastrophy mental atrophy
Sick with a feeling that nothing holds a meaning
Interesting finding distraction is every binding
Light without a fight
Don't know if I'm alright
Fractured and elastic
Electric shocks keep me up at night
Electric shocks keep me up at night
Track Name: Dead
Sleepin on the street and you got nothing to eat
Now your stayin in my bed payin rent by giving head
Track Name: Entropic Condition
Entropic Condition
Weighted Decision
Cracked canine rotates around the sun
Kiss and a tear as you disappear
Ghosts appear
Indulgent depletion
The compass is broken
The stars have spoken
instantaneous combustions
Filtered abcess
Empathy is this
Chromatic pupil
Close my eyes
Displace the scent
As the corpse forments
Loss of a being sentient
Contact withdrawl
Shaped condition
As our bodies to dance
Insult to Injury
Descend
Degrate spiritually
Condemned to the addiction of your body in decay
A split in my intellect
Pineal Disconnect
Fracturing void of cells splicing as you face
Humbled routine
Submerged dreams awaken
As I say nothing can ever be the same
Track Name: Rich People
So you want waterfalls
You don't need anything at all
You want your feet in toxic sand
To spread your wealth across the land
Come rot with me
I'll show you what I see
Come rot with me
Deconstructing everything
I see skies so blue
Reflecting things I never knew
Well life can be so cruel
You feel it in your molecules
Come rot with me
I'll show you what I see
Come rot with me
Deconstructing everything
Rich people are so poor
'Cause money's all they're looking for
With no empathy, just greed
They never help someone in need
Come rot with me
I'll show you what I see
Come rot with me
Deconstructing everything
Track Name: Gravity
Life's a dream
My dreams
Well they're all nightmares
What I see is not reflected in your mirrors
So you want to talk to me
Even the blind can see
you cooked my heart bloody
What you keep inside
Is why you run to hide
Submersed in your mind is something contrived
So you want to talk to me
Even the blind can see
you cooked my heart bloody
When you come around
Its a red flag in a crowd
There's warning signs
A fog light found
Bringing silence to our sound
So you want to talk to me
Even the blind can see
You cooked my heart bloody
Track Name: Stereo
Introspective rodeo
Convoluted radio
Stereo
Don't tell me what to do
So sorry for the few
Diluting the view
Don't tell me what to do
Solo Karaoke
Key of E
No one listening
Leave me alone
Go back where you come from
Don't tell me what to do
So sorry for the few
Diluting the view
Don't tell me what to do
Tremble as your fluttering
Why you're still lingering?
Ready to drag
Your bones' so broke
Your skin it starts to sag
Track Name: Bad Luck
Bad luck keeps finding me
Can't get any sleep
Distractions what I need
To let the wounds just bleed
Trouble always finds a way
Forget positivity
Try hard to retreat
Time to admit defeat
A dollar short
A day too late
Can't seem to navigate
Shoulda been here
Just missed out
Might as well fade out
The lights you cannot see
The false realities
Fogetting memories
Feeling like nobody
A doctrine of distress
No way to clean this mess
There's always someone with mess
Don't you know this is a test
A dollar short
A day too late
Can't seem to navigate
Shoulda been here
Just missed out
Might as well fade out
You're just some worker bee
No revolutionary
Cater indefinitely
Destroyed internally
A means to an end
How far will you bend
To never comprehend
As they just condescend
A dollar short
A day too late
Can't seem to navigate
Shoulda been here
Just missed out
Might as well fade out
