Track Name: M.W.G.
I am the outcome of grief
I come from death safe and sound
I have scars on my skin to show
like tracks in the snow
I'm alive and well
or so I've been told
my flesh was torn
then I am reborn from the soil

close the rips
flesh and bones
sew the folds and wounds

so i can live forever

I am the outcome of grief
I come from death safe and sound
I have scars on my skin to show
like tracks in the snow
I'm alive and well
or so I've been told
my flesh was torn
then I am reborn from the soil
Track Name: Stranglehold
I want a place for myself in the front row
completely black above me, and so under my feet
This is right the hell where I want to be
watching the rain drowning your nest

the smoke of the fire consumes me and fills the lungs

got the head that floating
and the taste of rust in my mouth
There's something going wrong in me

this is the right night, I waited for a long
flames rising blow with the wind
scratching the bones and leaving no trace
much more charming now in your ash heap

inhale your smoke intoxicates me swallowing hard and choke
inhale your blood swallow hard and choke
Track Name: Purple
blessed herds, legions, born cursed and then purified
dragging me down into their bliss
baptized, glorified

wooden crosses burning and lighting up the sky

what a show, what a treat
burns the throat, endless sins

and flames await me when I die

assholes, grown impure, raised up and dead again
I’m so fucking lost, I will forever burn
Teach me, punish me

what a show, what a treat
bleeds the tongue, crushed the teeth

and flames await me when I die
in my own bad of snakes

what a show, what a treat
what a show, what a shit
what a show, what a show
what a treat, what a curse
what a show, what a treat
what a show, what a shit
what a a treat, what a show
what a treat, what a lie
Track Name: With Love
I’ve got a burning heart inside and it bursts and bursts with love for you.
I tried to control it, I tried to cut it off,
I tried, I tried, I tried
I cut, it ends up, I cut
I try, i quit but you see, you see, you see
I have a burning heart that i can’t control
blow the fire turn it off
Track Name: Circled Eyes
crawling in my guts, reaching the top
blocking the tongue in an stabbing cramp
and waiting for hours until it ends
searching for a cure
Where there’s nothind to find
raw nerves, circled eyes and chocked

before I get wasted
before you know
before I vent on you
before my head blows up
before the shit comes out

my body limps, damn you
shoot up while I’m getting low

forget the pain
of the first time
forget how hard it was
forget how close I’ve been
to the end of the line.

All fucked up in a mess
Same shit day after day
And so again until I’m gone, fuck you.

And we’re all the same
All the fucking same
First rape, betrayed then sent to rot in hell
Track Name: Tongues
smoke and steel, having sex, world is deaf
rape your dreams, it feels like screaming in a wild bunch

global war, squeeze your heart and drain the blood.
swallow pills, losing weight, thanks the lord

wasted time
wasted youth
wasted words on our tongues
wearing empty thoughts like gloves

and the hands wrapped around the neck
and shit on head
we've gone much too far with this and now we're burning up fast

swallow pills, thank the lord, all is gone
Track Name: Hazed
I wake up every day with nails in my throat
down deep to the heart no sunshine today.
chewed the tongue like a fool like a drug addict
until it bleeds
shit, this place is a trap a cage of steel
and this filthy fucking hell is falling apart
in front of my eyes
exploding with a deafening roar,
recreating and then explode again

the more i move the more i sink
the more i run away the more i get involved
oh shit this whole world is a trap and it goes down
laugh up, scatter, fuck up everything
laugh up, scatter again and again
wanna fucking quit
there is somewhere else I'd rather be
how did I end up like this?
end is near,
it is now, can’t hope for more
don’t touch me ever again
pull the nails off my hands
