Track Name: after they were gone
i drape my name and hide away
not from grimaces, your glass eye
cold in defiance beg me warm my bones
revelation here
everyone’s alone
now everyone’s outside the city gates
now everyone’s become the very thing they claim to hate
unclean unclean unclean unclean un-everything
un-men un-women un-children branded and pristine
man disease flesh falls away
yet never touched in side i say
your finger holding back the flood of me
behind this failing
beautiful and hidden like me under cloak
revelation hear every ones a joke
hiding love like some stolen magic trick
revelation here everyone is sick
man disease flesh falls away
yet never touched in side i say
your finger holding back the flood of me
behind this failing
blood and flesh
disease flesh falls away
yet never touched in side i say
your finger holding back the flood of me
behind this failing
blood and flesh
disease flesh falls away
yet never touched in side i say
your finger holding back the flood of me
behind this failing
blood and flesh
Track Name: patch work
if your leg falls of i will sow it back again
if your eyes grow weak and darkened i will replace them
if the moths have eaten every thread away
it may not be the way you expect but you will be remade

so it seems were all just patches of skin
sown back together again and again


so it seems were all just patches of skin
in the end that’s just how it is

were all just patches of skin
and you know that’s just how it is

were all just patches of skin
sown back together again and again

so it seems were all just patches of skin
in the end that’s just how it is
Track Name: writhing spooky version
touch me for i would love to touch you love me for i believe i love you
commit to me i am committed to you betray me i will never betray you

within the scheme of things and all your thoughts of ecstasy
your nature has been written by design to truly love is not to lie

trust me for i wish to trust you hurt me i hope i never heart you
search me the way im searching for you understand me i don’t understand you

within the scheme of things and all your thoughts of ecstasy
your nature has been written by design to truly love is not to lie
within the scheme of things and all your thoughts of ecstasy
your nature has been written by design to truly love is not to lie

slither in and slither out never ask what its about
all your childhood nursery rimes have only taught us how to lie
we always seem to rationalize justify who we choose to despise
all my hopes all your dreams have not earned us anything
if i choose now not to love have I ever loved at all
if i choose now not to love have I ever loved at all
Track Name: 9 the fiend in the woods
scurrying into my room
no one sees you but i do
crawling up my bedroom wall
clinging to the sealing all i
see are effervescent eyes
black as coal filed with flies
starring down with ill intent
dripping filth (its) like rotting fish
stop staring at me

stop staring at me (staring at me)
i don't like you staring at me

reaching down to paralyze
with fear am i to be your prize
(there) must be something in the name
i whisper to you with no shame
tables tern its angry now
as am i too stand my ground
through the window out you go
back into the wood and snow
stop staring at me (staring at me)
i don't like you staring at me
Track Name: Im not the devil
the world is bland
void of diversity
the world is full of slaves
to mediocrity
socially awkward
not as cool as the others
truly indigenous
so they will try to destroy us
should we be fodder
to fuel there fire
don't you find it odd
that we refuse to love
the ones who don't fit in
or try to be like us
were all Calibus
hunting down the exotics
we all retaliate
if you stand against us
should you be fodder
to fuel our fire
character assassinate
because they wont relate
crush kill and destroy
all who refuse to conform
should you be fodder
to fuel our fire
human is my nature
but i'm not the devil

i'm not like you
but i'm not the devil

i can think for myself
but im not the devil
Track Name: writhing industrial version
