Resilience 04:13
Sifting through the filth A pressure lies upon me collapsing my lungs Suffocating, this feeling takes a hold of me I can't break it On the surface I'm impenetrable But deep within I'm filled with wounds that just won't clot Spirit evermore fleeing The feats of man are deemed by his own power Fear no man never cower Sifting through the filth A pressure lies upon me collapsing my lungs Suffocating, this feeling takes a hold of me I can't break it On the surface I'm impenetrable Try relentlessly, become obsessed Succumb to belittlement, shatter like glass Only coping Reap what you sew, bury every blow Conquer resilience Build up your walls Reinforce the binds Do away with denial Spitting out the vile Sweet bitterness it can be It's not me

Cancer 04:50
I knew it was over before I opened my eyes The sky, never changing This dark cloud is latched like a leech I cannot find the strength to move on I cannot breath I cannot see I am overwhelmed by all the shit that you've done to me That one last glimmer of hope now hangs lifeless at the end of a rope Watch me bleed Salt the very wounds you have caused me Set my body ablaze and laugh at the crackle of flames I dream of the possibility But I gave it away Out of the purity of kindness Something sacred It was neglected and destroyed Unsure if I will ever reconstruct what was there Now I live this life in despair Even if I wanted There always a barrier So certain Call me mindless But I know who I am I see things coming from miles away Before there even set in motion You think you've got it figured out Is it everything you've dreamed of Sick of it all Waste away Inside my shell I am cancer This is my hell I reach for happiness My limbs hacked to pieces Ravaged relentlessly It never ceases

Black Smoke 04:34
Gaze into my lifeless eyes All you'll see are waves of grey Nothing but a soul of a dead man I choke on the throw Gnashing teeth When I close my eyes I see reflections of me A haunting reality All I've harbored inside Visions of dismay Imprisoned by my own thoughts Gaze into my lifeless eyes All you'll see are waves of grey Nothing but a soul of a dead man I choke on the throw Gnashing teeth When I close my eyes I see reflections of me It won't fucking end Others words won't penetrate my will Momentum builds inside of me Exhale black smoke This burden burns me again and again Gaze into my lifeless eyes All you'll see are waves of grey Nothing but a soul of a dead man I choke on the throw Gnashing teeth When I close my eyes I see reflections of me

Septic 04:11
I cannot seem to reconcile with these demons I harbor inside So it is I that I hate I'm burning myself at my own stake Desperate screams to hollow ears Never being whole The only thing I fear Only a perfect world whispers contentment This is torment Its misery My head is in a vice Slowly defeating my will to live Trampled my abhorrence I've become nothing but a dull cavity of flesh and bone Withering away to dirt It's what I'm worth Stomp on my chest Destroy whatever's left As I walk through hell and back I feel the blisters swell under my feet I raze them to septic sores

Skin Crawl 04:27
Acerbity washes over me I am drowning Disdain emanates from my core By hate I am warmed No grasp of reality Only absorbing lies Cascading down from the mountain of disgust I trample greed, power and lust What I breathe, no longer air But a fragment of matter that was once there My skin crawls No end in sight My skin crawls No chance to make things right Acerbity washes over me I am drowning Disdain emanates from my core By hate I am warmed No grasp of reality Only absorbing lies Cascading down from the mountain of disgust I trample greed, power and lust What I breathe, no longer air But a fragment of matter that was once there Like a cold sweat The discomfort is unbearable How could this have become a constant error Regression is at a stand still All hope is lost Carving away at the remains Salvaging nothing

At My Depths 06:44
There lies a gated sanctuary Every step pushes it further away A relentless chase masochistic in nature Though it cuts deep I rise above the anguish Carving, ripping flesh Devious design Vile patterns of mutilation Worthy of pain I plant the seed of failure It grows thick thorns I clench these thorns in my fists Blood runs down my wrists It runs down flowing to the ground Carving, ripping flesh Devious design Vile patterns of mutilation I am not who I once was More of a man Less of a façade Beaten to the ground And yet I rise Flowing to the ground It sinks beneath my feet Into the soil beneath me From there I grow at my Depths Beaten down to the ground And yet I rise From there I grow at my depths

Catharsis 06:23
There's something that dwells within us all and feeds on our should like leeches When the Sun goes down I am buried by the night chastised by demons then hung and bled by spite Although this forces me to my knees, I will never beg and plead I am resilient, I am anger, I am hatred I surface... A renegade fucking juggernaut Rationale parallel with rage An animal in a cage clawing my way out Grinding teeth, snarling metallic matter Losing sensation, constricted by hate Transforming from man to a beast No longer in control Passenger in a vessel Plagued by angst, dejection takes me Bones crushed to dust, soul turned to rust No longer in control, passenger in a vessel Plagued by angst, dejection takes me Bones crushed to dust, soul turned to rust I am not who I want to be, something's inside of me All I want is to break free, hate in my veins Tear me open, sever my insides cut me to pieces to see what I'm made of This is my catharsis
