Rot Inside 05:00
Quiver my attraction crawls Ever closer against the wall A flirt death ego writhes inside Playing games with suicide Feared retort a confidence Game vilify a heartfelt vain Makeup dressed with nostril stained Your affluence is a backward strain Stray the dog who never cares In a filthy spied i watch And know you'll never wear Gauging a reaction To a two faced hollow stare Staging my distraction In recursion to your place Lying in the sheet so safe That loves a fevered ego race Forward played in course No remorse Clashing my recourse Stray the dog who never cares Culture shock a severed ghost To aggravate what suffers most
Decimate 02:49
War Saw 03:49
fear this potential problem a mangled war perpetuates the power at the hands of a rusted blade a severed arm waves in silence the unremorseful tongue of a guiltless political demagogue minces meat with dialogues for a rhetoric of greed as policy states with an eager pace to pay one's self at any rate fear envisioned impoverished traditions fueled by the crimes of a vile provision the machine gun fires the only light exaggerated justice for a wicked right to pay one's self the ravaged wealth does battle truly stimulate a country's health?
bright purest faith stand at the gates writing the writ so full of hate a high altered visionary saint with intentional humility a lullaby of blasphemy (eyes of god) cause and effect infest with no regrets guilt well placed within deceitful dialect high altered visionary sanctify replaced with master race mask disgrace with god’s embrace lies filth in eyes writhes the jagged lines point dismissed you'll terrorize rise filth in eyes writhes the jagged lines they'll burn and turn the tree limb urn
Normalcy 02:17
white grinning smock kicks the roots of fate whilst in this social cage and tripping over carnal pains alchemic change could never be the catalyst for normalcy Hippocrates defaced whilst crawling through the human wastes with democratic feigns for profit gains or is it too much to trust the doctor's touch? uneducated fear that licks upon a wealthy ear reaching back to scrape the self absorbed and private itch surgeon displays a weak malaise that spins the seed of greed to carry on that industry respectfully to disagree white gloves pick away the fruits of fate rake in the cure delayed that pours upon the potion gray apothecary with medicated meat that laughs upon immune defeat
Caustic 05:00
filth that paints a mirror buried those eyes twist to turn ashes burn still burn with guilt overturning all that’s built feverish grin the introvert strung out spreads the dirt caustic tears crave ways to curse drips the dregs scraped from above fuel my torment fuel my shame dripping dregs scraped from above
scrape the furnace fate unnoticed one nation’s crime rocket scrape lost last vision unrequited state of being left unseen the weapon trembling six feet underground a city sits in wait eradicate to the last gleaming flares trace and satiates the arms race phosphorus rains a blinding light that's glaring from the right upon wives screaming a blinding light that's glaring from the right the holocaust relies upon a five sided polygon
The Shroud 04:11
