Track Name: Rot Inside
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
Track Name: War Saw
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?
Track Name: Filth In Eyes
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
Track Name: Here Won No One
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
with medicated meat
that laughs upon immune defeat
Track Name: Caustic
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
Track Name: The Dervish (second vision)
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
