LYRICS

BEATING DEAD HORSES
it's not for profit and the gain is the misery
we're the germ and the pain is the industry
and we came in the name of the enemy
habit's a pill that is easy to swallow

we're beating dead horses (we know)
beating dead horses

it's not for fame, not for love or nobility
we're the germ and the pain is stupidity
if the sign is to find our futility
habit's a pill that is easy to swallow


THE WASTELAND THAT IS ME
this temptation has me feeling like i'm losing all control
i'm becoming dependent on the pain inside my skull
it's this sinking feeling i'll carry all the way into my grave
this is my human behavior this is not a choice i've made
i'm always stuck inside the wasteland that is me
i've been here my whole life the wasteland that is me

i end up feeling like i've been up for a million days
there's just no stopping me when i get this inside my brain
it's like this sinking feeling knowing i'm going awry
i can see my future disintegrating before my eyes
i'm always stuck inside the wasteland that is me
i've been here my whole life the wasteland that is me

i begin it again
then we land in the lower end
and i begin it again
i begin again


FIGHT OR FLIGHT
i find myself in this empty room
forced to the corner by an unseen enemy
i feel the shadows of impending doom
i have this feeling that this is the end of me
i only hope that it's fast to go
this nightmare feels like it's become an eternity
i can't seem to face my fears for shit
i try to breathe but i can't get ahead of it

i am falling into pieces
i am falling into the fray
i am falling into pieces i am in a psychotic state

heart is racing, i am sweating, shaking, choking, feel like i'm gonna die
mind is running, dizzy, numbing, full of fear of becoming crazy
i am feeling creeping slowly coming turning out my insides
i'm overcome by disastrous thoughts, as they manifest the panic inside of my head


BURN
I was trying to know your value
I learned it wasn't in your worth

all the times you led me on - never was a father, too much of a bother
all the times that you were gone - gesture without motion, met with no emotion
all the times you led me on - alway's were a martyr, armor in a bottle
all the times that you were gone - absent of devotion, dedication broken

It wasn't your word
that you brought me
It wasn't your death
what you taught me
it wasn't your faith
'cause you lost me
It wasn't your life
that's worth nothing
that's worth nothing

i was trying to understand
i learned your not a man

if you see my sons, give them a dollar
turn them away, let them fall farther
and oh my father, who aren't in heaven
i shall forsake your name


YOU WILL ALL GO DOWN
falling down from the sky
the come down where we are all gonna die
no one, not even god himself
will give up anymore of anything else

and falling down, it's my favorite thing to do
just stay with me, and you will soon fall down to
that's everything, there's nothing left that we can do
it's happening, and you will all end up

anything else
you will all go down in a ball of flames


BREATHING WATER
pushing me down ever closer
feeling like i'm falling over
dropping down forever lower
deep into the closest moment
pulling me down even farther
feeling like i'm breathing water
overwhelming light fluoresces
hollowed out by luminescence

and you're not here
you're nowhere
flowing like there's no below me
slowly lower and foreboding
shadows calling like they know me
growing ever dark and lonely
everything is moving me down losing vision and losing sound
enemies draw close in waiting skeletons of my own making

i feel you missing
i've got this feeling that your gone forever


GHOST
i sift with eyeless admiration
i sieve your layers through and through
i feel with starving fixation
i have a need i must subdue

and i see from you afar
and i select you
and i breathe you from afar
and i collect you

i have unhealthy adoration
your something i can't ever have
i stir in total desperation
without you here i know i'll snap

and i know you from afar
and i dissect you
and i keep you from afar
and i protect you

i can't take this ache
it's more than i can take
this is all one big mistake
if i can't fly i will break

i see from you afar
and i select you
i want you from afar
and i collect to you


WE DISINTEGRATE
i watch with careful eyes
i never trust the word
all my friends have knives
cause it's an evil world
even if surrendered
even if survived
we can try to hide but we won't make it out alive

and we degenerate
and we decelerate
and we disintegrate
falling from earth with no help from the angels
and we degenerate
and we decelerate
and we disintegrate
all of our sins are by avenged the faithful
i always watch my back
i never trust the truth
all my friends have guns
sharp as serpent's tooth
even if defended
even if revived
we can try to hide but we won't make it out alive

if you come clean
it means nothing
gods don't hear screams

DISSEMBLER you are changing
you are unfolding
you will open
we'll see what's inside you

it's a little too late let's throw it all away
you keep on trying to heal things
but we are way past fixing

all left apart, broken down, disassembled

you are in pieces
you are collapsed
you will be open
we'll see inside

it's a little too late let's throw it all away
you keep on trying to heal things
but we are way past fixing
way past fixing


SICK SICK SICK
i feel like i'm numb inside
i feel like i'm not alive
i feel like i'm dead and cold
i feel like i left here long ago
i feel like i've lost my mind
i feel like i've wasted my life
i feel like i've done it wrong
i feel like i left here long ago

sick sick sick in the head
yeah i'm sick sick sick in the head
i'm sick sick sick in the head
oh i'm sick sick sick in the head

i feel like i sold my soul
i feel like a worthless hole
i feel like i lost control
i feel like i left here long ago


THE CARRION
a million miles from anyone, a million miles away,
i am alone, the carrion, the animal decayed
i'm like a solan plunging into the darkest depths of the sea
i'm shrouded out by soft grey ash – all of it made up by me

freezing and burning i'm falling and turning, rushing and twirling, stirring, converting slowly unfurling, i'm constantly swerving - slumbering down without any preserving overly nerving, abstracting, differing, i'm only reacting to what i'm deserving the carrion

looked down upon by a million dead stars hanging above and between
tiny veils of filmy light, darkened and jilted by sheen
forsaken highs where i once thrived, clouded and hard to perceive
it's hard to untie and i won't deny all of it's made up by me
ashes rain down from the sky
choking out all of the life

The world versus me


VEINS
I come from exploded stars
i'm only dust from afar
i'm only made by my ways
i'll be remembered for what's in my veins

put me down
veins
you get enough?
veins
i know my blood
veins
i will drop you
veins

I'm only known by my words
not for what they say, but for what you've heard
not for what they are, but for what they contain
i'll be remembered for what's in my veins

put me down
veins
you get enough?
veins
i know my blood
veins
i will drop you
veins

all that's mine is with me now
out my mind – in your mouth
i won't stop – no one's safe
i will put you in your fucking place


SOMEWHERE NEW
feeling stuck all the time
i'm locked up in my mind
no way out of this mess
i'm trapped here – more or less

i dream of somewhere new
i gotta get out of here real soon
i'll get into my car and take a drive
i'll make it all better overnight

feeling down everyday
the pills won't take it away
there's no way out so i fight
i tell myself it will be alright as long as i...

dream of somewhere new
i gotta get out of here real soon
i'll get into my car and take a drive
i'll make it all better overnight

gotta get away
gotta get away yeah, let me go
