Flesh & Ghost (free) 05:04
Hate They think they know what I do In their eyes I’m just a fallen saint Spiller of blood, destroying love in my wake I’m only real if you close your eyes If you fear death more than you fear life I’m not a man I’m the fucking truth Bringer of the things that you see not Bringer of the hopeless ends that you deny Endless hatred Buried now by time and pain Loveless, wasted Crawling back so you can feel again No one will hear me in this place You will call me a mistake Seen through the dead eyes of the old Watch the world outside the cold The cold, abomination, the breath of master’s grief The cold, abomination, deny me as I breathe Breathe I feel nothing, condemned to misery, alone with my own thoughts I am nothing, a burden on life, a scar unhealed forevermore Forever scarred

CLANDESTINE ABUSE   It seems to me, as we grow old, our lines are drawn in the sand Empty words, tongues of dust, no meaning as our breath is drawn back into the earth Crippling thoughts that bear our names, hold us firmly in our place Days that end without hope, as the sun burns our skin away Bastard seeds, model grief, forever preying on the weak Dead inside, a holocaust, a place we cannot go We’ll try to run, it won't matter, life is (endless/fucking/clandestine) abuse A dying wish, a prayer unheard, for all the burdens to leave us as we fade No matter now, slow decay, back to the salts from where we came Hidden hands, hidden hate, that pull us down In this world, the bodies disappear, and all we keep are the names Reduced to waste, the scorching Earth, but no one will remember the pain Bastard seeds, model grief, forever hunting for the weak Dead inside, a holocaust, a place we cannot go We’ll try to run, it won't matter, life is (endless/fucking/clandestine) abuse Abuse

Dead Ends (free) 04:16
How can you exist with walls between Defeatist hopes that hold you down Outside leads you inside Build upon your favorite hates You’re still waiting for nothing Dead ends are all you can have Defined by your failures This is how hell is real Deleted heartstrings Beaten down by time and fear You’re still waiting for nothing Dead ends are all you can have A waste of time, a bleeding heart Bones that break before you breathe It’s out of hand, no telling now Concede that this could be It’s beating me down, it’s tearing me down No function for lives unlived

Constant silence No conclusion can be reached Widowed ambitions Revered by the hopeless Mortified Blood disease unseen Extrication or will I see the Black Lodge? Horrified By things unseen Tortured By what I can't be Resignation Grasping with phantom limbs Being is a curse that every man must bleed Closed skies Life disease Extrication or will I see the Black Lodge? Horrified By things unseen Tortured By what I can't be Not made for existence

Sundowner 08:37
This place will eat us alive We'll leave with nothing left inside A fragment of our past mistakes Realized as we leave it all No thoughts exist in this world That can't be denied It follows us until no hearts beat World of darkened eyes We'll sink alone as we suffocate Destroyed by the agents of sin The darkness will consume us, we can't win Pain, hate, bleeding The only thing that is real to me is hurt I built this place just for you So we can share this tomb Hidden from the lie we tell ourselves No paths can feed our escape All of the roads are ablaze Burning skies the bones are dust God fails us all Pain, hate, bleeding The only thing that is real to me is hurt Everything is nothing Built to spill, made to fall apart Everything is nothing Tears from the womb, will haunt our days Everything is nothing Skies are black, fucked for all time Go with the fall Let it take you now Pain, hate, bleeding The only thing that is real to me is hurt Sundown

Empty Home 06:36
This time spent in plain and charred room The walls that bleed no hope A notebook with words I can't make out My hand trembles as I write the script Pictures with bullet holes and missing face The glass can't reflect what isn't there I'm not the man that you have known I'm just a memory that you can't neglect Slither and hiding to where you cant torture me The trees and the ghosts are the only that can judge me A road you have built is still running through abandoned towns You'd hoped I'd forget but still I can cry out loud The greying of Earth is the last of the calming sounds In passing you'll speak my name Even the sun will learn to regret In passing you'll speak the name But even death can't find me here This is not my home Empty home Where no one lives Slither and hiding to where you cant torture me
7.
Damnation 06:35
I moved a mountain of grief And I carry it with me I cried as I stared down the sun And it wouldn't take me Petitioned God to just make a sound Because the light can't guide me My body ached before the storm As I prepared for a war Years of decay are now Realized through unbirth A cold wind surrounds my sight Yet I still feel my descent Numb to things that I once loved None of it matters now My body aches before the storm And I will lose a war Dead knowing life built on regrets Fading forgetting as the sun sets in the west No peace for me now Existence only memories No peace for me now I am lost to the world of man Still carrying weight Of untold failures I wouldn't even know Where to begin My burdens will sink me And you will tie the rope Dead knowing life built on regrets Fading forgetting as the sun sets in the west

The Storm 09:31
Enemies as we part No use for this world The dawn is not here I'm drawn into the void I turned my madness into you, and hid in plain sight The memories can't take away the pain The storm washes it away The storm washes us away The storm will wash us now and take away the pain Up on the hill the fires still burn Disgust, your visage is a joke The image of shit fills the cracks within your face Your mirrored and pathetic stares, upon your weakness I will feed Behold as the wolf returns to pass, destroyer of redemption, slaughter of the sheep No cause no beginning, these words that make me sick, you can choke on them now I'm coming home Sinking to the land beyond the graves No coming back I will disappear beneath the waves And up on the hill I can see the heavens burn Rejoice as the angels tear me down, trumpeting the hate that echoes for all time Bastards in the flesh that you keep, if man were truly gods you would weep I'd fall to my knees but I'll worship no slime As the clouds part and the rain begins to fall, I will sink alone You do it to your own kind, where your children cannot see You do it because you hate, you're no better than us You hide the failures you've made, channeled through abuse Your ship can sink like ours, the eons will be your noose, you lose I'm coming home Sinking to the land beyond the graves No coming back I will disappear beneath the waves You do it to your own kind, where your children cannot see You do it because you hate, you're no better than us You hide the failures you've made, channeled through abuse Your ship can sink like ours, the eons will be your noose, you lose
