Track Name: Hesitator
Destroy revive

hold my hands onto the thoughts of judgements plan
a swarming storm and your killing scam (oh my god)
I know their staring, looking, staring (straight at me)
I know its horns so damn well though
you will never dance around my grave with happiness
cast aside the rotten hand
the rotten hands that hold me in the quicksand
hesitate to think twice about dragging me into that filth again
keep those god damn lawful men away from you

watch him dance along
the judge
dancing foot
the jury
watch them dance along
the judge
dancing foot
pine hammer down

sinking in the shadows
it’s a way to find the comfort
sinking in the shadows
once again
it’s a way to find that comfort

dancing in around you’re ok
picking parts but you cannot see all the rest no
i could never see your own face your own face
brace your dead face
Track Name: Mannequin Face
Pleading from a standing form
bleeding for the drastic, called ballistic
time strides through, I know
self-explodes somebody
fuel the flame
dull mind grieving
pull me through
cold stone that was my home
despise those words
I won’t forgive you

pray for me pray
to me it’s never ending
the systems never ending
Its killing all of us
pray for day
the systems never ending
your faulting all of us
pray for me
I know
we know
we know it’s all because of you I know
we know we know it’s all because of you
Track Name: Brown Teeth
Dog house down
myself I don’t want to be
don’t want to be sold
I said l don’t want to be cold
stop it
flog it yeah
some walk along the line
here is a soul that’s tripling
my soul hear
old cold skin mould love is stale
we're rotting down to the ground

pave your way
for the mind freeze
dull your mind from the lesson
please don’t fall apart
it’s a mind freeze
sorry god I’ve taken it
reliving solved depressing
I cannot save the lesson
I will not
it’s a mind freeze

your dead right
your dead right t
his place is cold and frightening
I cannot be the lesson
I cannot stand upright
I cannot be the lesson
this plate is laced with poison
there must be single gap of light
I cannot see the end light
Track Name: Vile Hymns
get them off
step down
get off
step down go
get off
get out the treasure stash
you've got some mother fucking explaining to do
the spot light shines
and its burning you straight down
for god sakes you'll certainly hit rock bottom
the mess
this place is a fucking mess
I swear it’s not a problem
I swear it’s a disease and
its starting to smoother this place
I swear it’s a god damn disease
and this place is getting smothered in it
murder them
murder them
one by one

kindly pack your bags
it’s a long time overdue
and please don’t ever come back
and just remember one thing
you aint nothing of the filth
Track Name: Celebrate
You're touch warms like the burning sun
and has an everlasting grip on me
your forever mine
you're voice has been trapped
in the walls of my brain
forever mine
in my brain

you're eyes have been the light in my dark
and guided me through the grey clouds
baby I know these streets these lights
have never looked so beautiful
your soul is beautiful
you are beautiful
your love
for you
with you
for you
for you
with you
for you
celebrate my love for you
