Track Name: Resilience
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
Track Name: Cancer
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
Track Name: Black Smoke
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
Track Name: Septic
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
Track Name: Skin Crawl
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
Track Name: At My Depths
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
Track Name: Catharsis
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
