Penance 03:39
Falling apart, walls all white, white on blank, blank on blank While on your knees again, there; something like a victory When these savage apes Throw another lashing, or a lucid dream, I don't know Next to black dice and the chime maiden's bell, Nothing feels like the six South sides of Hell Insane/Unsafe Standing there at the precipice of rot you'll wonder how such chaos has been amassed, and while you marvel at the insurmountable torture, you will feel death's grip and then no more as you are banished to nothing And still, nothing feels quite like the six South sides of Hell
2.
Absolution 05:32
They were strong when we were weak and that was all it took for them to shatter the obsidian we held some kind of home inside Complete, absolute, a display so pathetic; when we hit our knees and begged our lives, they simply slit our throats The truth was that your dirty pies were set in stone so long ago, And if I trace these crooked steps I'll find an even bigger mess that You. Won't. Pick. Up And I can recall: Caving in And breaking down And giving up And giving them What they wanted, but as soon as I started getting used to the pain... The science of the solitude is of utmost importance Living for your own is as selfless as can be Living that disfiguration again, and again, and again, and again They can do without that Cradled by unyielding arms Opened with untainted hands All enticed by the embracing tides All these fault lines

Treason 02:45
The overalls of a traitor stained with blood cut from his own cloth The smirk of arrogant planning gone absolutely perfect The aroma of instant death signaled crimson and grey Cut them twice Drain them right Hang them high, their uniforms silhouette against the sky Snuffing the candlelight room by room, head by head, he collects Midnight lies with the thief, hiding these stars glowing at night If nobody wins, then everything will be quite alright Cut them twice Drain them right Hang them high, their uniforms silhouette against the sky

Suffocating 06:09
I'm feeling the failure as I'm feeding the vultures I was looking for answers, now I'm looking for closure There's too much light in the center of my quarters And the Cerberus howls as its giving the orders This lifelong struggle must be our downfall Inside the reticle is the cause of it all - shoot and end it forever Ancient pains from the loss of blood Forgotten worlds of personal Hell It felt like such a waste as all his offerings fell
5.
Every day is a trick Everybody's full of shit To put it bluntly, I hate you all Spread forth all malice and a plague of rage I'll never stop this book of wrath, only turn the page I'm so sick to my stomach Entertain yourself I couldn't care less I've smelt better and this is my last bit I create my own demons and then I toss the blame I cannot stand myself, please follow that I cannot stand this anymore, please follow that

A slow start to a long lie, if only I'd have been so cunning If only I'd have been so cunning (if only I'd have been as awful as you) A slew of sub-humans We fit right in amongst them As awful as me, as awful as this I'm no longer reminded, no longer adrift This was just a process and I was just an android This is all that we did You were so wrong when I was so gone It was more than a mistake A dry wine with a burnt kiss, you'd have to be desperate If I could have awoken and destroyed us sooner You were so... There's the escape button Press it if you're a coward A selfish deceiver posing amidst the truths Six times failed and another coming on I'm too far gone, I'm too far dumb My hands are numb, my eyes are shot I can't breathe I'm so sorry, I've given up I'll hold you back just promise me you'll stop them all

Choke 04:16
Over time, I let that seed of uncertainty bloom into a tree. A tree which cannot be cut down for me. A compulsion which befell every part of me. I had crawled back into the rabbit hole I thought I'd never return to, but I am accustomed. To avoid any leaves of self doubt amidst loved ones. The dirt and earth collapsed and trickled down above me, behind me, as I burrowed deeper and deeper. The more I struggle, the more I die. Inevitability of darkness. What once was a seed of doubt are roots that shelter me and remind me where I belong -- In a hole. I choke on the world. I choke on the world. And I swallow its contents painfully, yet willingly.

April Ruin 06:21
Pull reality's plug and subscribe to the malevolent things that wind themselves inside of these strings The psychos rip this world, support the endless rebellion forever more Burn the flags of saturation and ride this tide You have everything to gain Bring them inside Sheltered from all of the pain Bring them inside Fill them with all of our hate Relinquish control of the sixth one
