Track Name: Sick as a God
September comes bearing a heavy cross
calendar march until the holocaust
darling doesn’t know that they swim with sharks
til the hammer falls and the powder sparks
red halls and who’s to blame
the dance turns black, becomes a wake
summer comes, the chapter never ends
misery and darling are the best of friends

sick as a god (now I lay me down to sleep again)
sick as god (pray the lord my soul to keep)
the way of the world is to blister & burn
the way of the world is to…

From winter springs life anew
tender rage bursts into bloom
the scars run deeper than you know
tears fall and poison flows
red room, who should’ve known
misery never left darling alone
summer fades without a reason why
another darling thinks it’s okay to die

sick as a god (now I lay me down to sleep again)
sick as god (pray the lord my soul to keep)
the way of the world is to blister & burn
the way of the world is to…

sick as a god (now I lay me down to sleep again)
sick as god (pray the lord my soul to keep)
the way of the world is to blister & burn
the way of the world is to…

sick as a god (now I lay me down to sleep again)
sick as god (pray the lord my soul to keep)
the way of the world is to blister & burn
the way of the world is to…
Track Name: F5
I don’t make love, I make enemies
I destroy anyone who tries to care
I’m a faultline, cause another landslide
Precious little hearts had best beware
Syringe full of cyanide at the best of times
I will bring you down, ruin your life
I’m not worth the trouble I cause
and God help the one who says I’m yours

I’m a hurricane, I’m a hurricane
My love’s a disaster
I’m a hurricane, I’m a hurricane
My love’s a disaster

I’m not romance, I’m a car crash
I’ll never be the one you’re dreaming of
My mistakes are sins and tragedies
Another dead heart who was “the one”
I am too twisted, can’t love a misfit
Made out of quicksand, you’ll drown in it
I never mean the things I do
Some are star-crossed, some are just screwed

I’m a hurricane, I’m a hurricane
My love’s a disaster
I’m a hurricane, I’m a hurricane
My love’s a disaster

I’m a hurricane, I’m a hurricane
My love’s a disaster
I’m a hurricane, I’m a hurricane
My love’s a disaster
I’m a hurricane, I’m a hurricane
My love’s a disaster
I’m a hurricane, I’m a hurricane
My love’s a disaster
Track Name: Heat Death
Stars dying in the absence of the light
thoughts dying in the echo chamber of my mind
to live tomorrow, today has to die
event horizon and the broken shards of time

I don’t know why, good things have to die
I don’t know why, no I don’t know why things fall apart

Threads fraying from the tapestry of life
faces dissolve into the sea of night
children crying as a father says goodbye
mother trying to hold onto her shattered mind

I don’t know why, good things have to die
I don’t know why, no I don’t know why things fall apart

the bonds that keep our atoms together
the force that keeps the planets moving on their tracks
the bonds that keep a family together
the force that keeps the universe from going black

I don’t know why, good things have to die
I don’t know why, no I don’t know why things fall apart
why things fall apart
why things fall apart
why things fall apart
Track Name: Black Cake
Today didn’t happen
‘Cause I didn’t tell a story
I am invisible
‘Cause I spent the day crying
Nobody knows my name
And no one cares to ask
I’m a momentary joy
I am fifteen seconds fleeting

Celebrate the friends we have
The ones who all play pretend
Celebrate the friends we have
Who won’t be there in the end

If I don’t wake up
Who would ever find me
It would mean consideration
And that’s too complicated
I will never fade away
I’ll live on in pictures
I only live in pictures
Cause the real me’s complicated

Celebrate the friends we have
The ones who all play pretend
Celebrate the friends we have
Who won’t be there in the end

Running out of power
Low on communication
I’m losing my purpose
Entertaining conversation
No longer in the content
Dead in the translation
Fear of missing myself
Let’s have a celebration

Celebrate the friends we have
The ones who all play pretend
Celebrate the friends we have
Who won’t be there in the end

Celebrate the friends we have
The ones who all play pretend
Celebrate the friends we have
Who won’t be there in the end
Track Name: Spoiler
I won; the victory turns to ashes in my mouth
Blood is running down to further south
I won; I knew before we met you’d make me sorry
Stealing all the joy out of my glory

‘cause I am the king in a crown of thorns
and I am the one wishing I’d never been born
and I am the one bathing in your scorn
I am the king in a crown of thorns

You lost; I thought by now that you would have stopped fighting
But you’re still out there, scratching and biting
I won; I’m up here at the top with all the winners
But all my dreams are feeling so much thinner

‘cause I am the king in a crown of thorns
and I am the one wishing I’d never been born
and I am the one bathing in your scorn
I am the king in a crown of thorns

If this is what winning feels like, I’d rather lose
If this is what winning feels like, I’d rather lose
If this is what winning feels like, I’d rather lose

‘cause I am the king in a crown of thorns
and I am the one wishing I’d never been born
and I am the one bathing in your scorn
I am the king in a crown of thorns

‘cause I am the king (I am the king) in a crown of thorns
and I am the one (I am the one) wishing I’d never been born
and I am the one (I am the one) bathing in your scorn
I am the king in a crown of thorns
I am the king in a crown of thorns
Track Name: Dreams in the Witch House
something's not right
the angles look so strange
I keep thinking about the witch
what unearthly math she may have learned

the walls are wrong
the walls are wrong
the walls are wrong
they’re all wrong

two hundred years ago she died
or did she walk through the walls
maybe she never left
maybe she's still here

the walls are wrong
the walls are wrong
the walls are wrong
they’re all wrong

the neighbors say they see
that violet light again
coming from the sealed up room
above the walls that so strangely angle, strangely angle

there's mud on my pants
but I've only been dreaming
the footprints don't make sense
she wants me to meet him
she wants me to sign it

the walls are wrong
the walls are wrong
the walls are wrong
they’re all wrong

I try to speak but my throat is closed -
did I sign the black man's book after all?
Track Name: Motorcycle
Death is alive in the streets
In the seductive moonlight
Calling for a sacrifice
The city loves a suicide
Doom like a harrier
Charges in like a storm
The racing of your blood
Keeps you warm

Motorcycle, there’s no God tonight
Only streetlights; motorcycle
Motorcycle, there’s no God tonight
Only streetlights; motorcycle

Hurts like a Chinese burn
The way it cuts you up
The blood you shed’s a penance
For the chaos you love
The night keeps no secrets
Assassins made of chrome
The rain a deluge
Leaving ghosts on the road

Motorcycle, there’s no God tonight
Only streetlights; motorcycle
Motorcycle, there’s no God tonight
Only streetlights; motorcycle

Courting oblivion
Midnight of your life
Vultures line the streets
On the last ride

Motorcycle, there’s no God tonight
Only streetlights; motorcycle
Motorcycle, there’s no God tonight
Only streetlights; motorcycle

Track Name: Hunter College
I find new ways to make mistakes
I put myself in harm’s way
Should’ve never started up with you
I'm built too easy to break
I've learned nothing from my past
If I just keeping coming back
Drowning in this sea of pain
I cry for waves of violent change

Teach me how to kill
This obsession, this addiction
Teach me how to kill
Or it will kill me first

Turned a blind eye to the portents
Spit a curse at good fortune
Now I'm bound for the floor
Bruised, shivering, asking for more
Didn't know how fast I'd fall apart
Everything feels cold, harsh and sharp
I should know better by now
Still I pin you to my heart

Teach me how to kill
This obsession, this addiction
Teach me how to kill
Or it will kill me first

Mercy guide my arrow straight
Put an end to this passion play
Can't be left to my own device
I'll choose this love over my life
Over my life, over my life
Track Name: Aggressive Energy
you can make someone's day with a smile
and ruin it with a curse
you have more power than you think
I understand sometimes you're so full
of rage it just bubbles over

getting mad never got anyone there any faster
your anger only feeds the evil in your heart
your mad mood serves the enemy who lives inside your head
getting mad never got anyone there any faster

yelling at someone else only makes you feel worse
and then you're guilty and even madder
passing the football of rage and stress
doesn't really let it go; now we're both mad

getting mad never got anyone there any faster
your anger only feeds the evil in your heart
your mad mood serves the enemy who lives inside your head
getting mad never got anyone there any faster

anger is just a mindset
fear is just a mindset
your mind set them
your mind can take them away

anger is just a mindset
fear is just a mindset
your mind set them
your mind can take them away
yes, the world is full of evil
and yes, the world is full of injustice
yes, the world is full of hatred
so don't add your little thimble full
to the ocean of darkness
that is threatening to drown us all
just try, just try, just try

getting mad never got anyone there any faster
your anger only feeds the evil in your heart
your mad mood serves the enemy who lives inside your head
just try, just try, just try

anger is just a mindset
fear is just a mindset
your mind set them
your mind can take them away
anger is just a mindset
fear is just a mindset
your mind set them
your mind can take them away
