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 that 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…

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

Heat Death 04:05
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

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

Spoiler 03:35
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

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?

Motorcycle 03:25
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 Motor cycle Motor cycle Motor cycle

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

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 just so full of rage, it 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 and your mind can take them away anger is just a mindset fear is just a mindset your mind set them and your mind can take them away and 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, just try, just try anger is just a mindset fear is just a mindset your mind set them and your mind can take them away anger is just a mindset fear is just a mindset your mind set them and your mind can take them away
