Track Name: Motionless
Eyes are heavy, Can't fall asleep.
Crushing thoughts from lifeless minds.
Tell myself the worst is yet to come.
Tell myself what I don't want to hear.
Solitary, Fear in numbers.
Dead dogs bark at my every forward step.
In a land without reason, and no other life.
Throw myself caution to the wind.
Watch my self preservation fade.
Mass disease rots the insides.
Leaves me feeling unavailing
Society's ridden, man kind drowns
Breathing ceased to the be an option.
Track Name: Tremors
Follow me into the light. I'll be your saviour, your fucking christ. Long for me, your entire life. Feed me your soul, heart and your pride.
Track Name: Stapled Shut
I'm not alive. Can't feel the chill in my bones. Mothers and fathers, daughters and sons gather round to see the setting sun. If i had my way, It'd never rise again. We've been fucked over and over. Born with our eyes closed. Stapled shut by control, the wool torn over our eyes. Fall asleep to pass the time, wake up to realise/reallies.
Track Name: Deaftone/Silenced.
Bend my body, break my spirit.
Send my mind into retreat.
The silence is golden.
The silence is deafening.
Track Name: Mentally Unstable.
Drawing blanks, can't speak my mind.
Starving for truth, but vomiting lies.
An eye for an eye, now where all blind.
The quest for truth leaves you drunk for potential.

I'm at a loss, with my loose ends.
Can't keep it together I'm falling apart.
I cant except my consequences.
I can't except my own ill fate.

Mentally Unstable

Lifes-lost, Times wasted
I'll never be complacent
