Track Name: HOPELESSLY INSANE AND ON FIRE
HOPELESSLY INSANE AND ON FIRE

Please leave a virgin on my stairs
and frankincense to clear the air
kneeling on all fours to feed the snake
I forgot what point I'm trying to make

The ever wasted arms of reason
starched and torn to justify
like a bird to a high-rise window
chasing artificial light

I know what ride you think you run
600 pitch forks and a thousand torches strong
heres a glory hole that won't give way
as long as you can hold the masquerade 

The ever wasted arms of reason
dying in your hopeful eyes
like a bird to a high-rise window
clinging to the artificial light

I chase the dead
with tethered arms
play hide and seek
with fire alarms
king of the woods cloak of the night
my enemies kiss me goodnight

Eye abandoned by the sun
waiting for the truth to leave your gun.
and I  am naked in the fire
waiting for the flames to take me higher
Track Name: THE SILENT MACHINE
THE SILENT MACHINE

I don't feel the weight of my chains as I grin and stare
all the windows are dirty but still I can see out there
bleeding mouth and open veins
you can try but you'll never escape your shame

they pour you a shot of yourself as you kick and shout
this machine was never for you so you carved me out
how does it feel to know you became 
a puppet for somebody else's shame
you are the needle and I am the air 
 find us a vein
mean old man 
up in the sky with his plans

take my hand
as we walk through the slime of abusive desire my friend
take my hand
theres no end to the dream of the silent machine
  
tickle my skin with the blade of a jealous knife
I can see the disease in you eyes you crave more life 
I'm on the edge can you talk me down
city blood spillin over suburban ground

take my hand
as we walk through the slime of abusive design my friend
take my hand
theres no end to the dream of the silent machine
Track Name: A DARK HORSE DRAGGING
A DARK HORSE DRAGGING

My family honour's ruined and the village is on fire
you chased me the waters edge shaved naked and hogtied
I'm trapped in the wrong reality a broken record that keeps repeating
human hands they are for strangling
human eyes they are for lying
dark horses dragging
so sick of being part of you
A tribe of fake smile thieves and murderers
through the mist we see you running
through the waves we see you drowning
here at the edge of the sea we collide
the ravenous hunger of man in your eyes
for all of the times i believed i could float
boredom and apathy drag me below
one horse pulls you back one pulls you forward
one horse pulls you back one dragging you below
from the depths of narcosis I watch the clouds roll by
on the edge of psychosis I
Track Name: THE CALL OF HEREDITARY ENGINES
6. THE CALL OF HEREDITARY ENGINES


Look me in the eyes
and tell me you're alive
cause you're heads on fire 
and you look like god
maybe it's the bath salts and the moonlight
so if you don't come home then I'll know why
and if you're trying to save the world
well you're far more apt to spread the fire

WOULD YOU BURN SOMEBODY'S HOUSE DOWN
WOULD YOU EAT SOMEBODY'S CHILDREN?
WOULD YOU CHAIN YOURSELF UP TO A TREE AND BE TRUE?
WOULD YOU PUSH SOMEBODY DOWN THERE
IN THAT HYDROCHLORIC NIGHTMARE?
DID YOU BITE A LITTLE MORE THAN YOU COULD CHEW?

look me in the eyes and tell me I'm insane
cause you're out of phase and unfocussed
and if you're looking to scare me off
well you're much more likely to turn me on

why it's so hard 
to discard 
it's so hard
holding on far too long
comfort fades still you stay
don't let go
let me go
don't let go
use me now I know how
mate with you make it through
something old takes control
eat your fear disappear

so get out your sword 
and march naked into the sun
and wait for the machines to come
Track Name: TORTURED BY GHOSTS IN THE STATIC
7. TORTURED BY GHOSTS IN THE STATIC

I've been taking neuroleptics 
drunken writing on the kitchen floor
Calculated message from a creaking door

Agnesia's hair is black her eyes are made of whispers
she holds me steady and injects my bones with shivers
she'll always love me with her fingers crossed

I wish I had the lungs to scream
I wish I  had the skin to feel
cause I'm convinced this ghost is real

I've been only taking blue pills 
I am thirsty blood is in my cup
she is standing over me I can't get up

Agnesia's hair is black her eyes are made of whispers
she holds me steady and injects my bones with shivers
she'll always love me with her fingers crossed

I wish I had the lungs to scream
I wish I had the skin to feel
cause I'm convinced this ghost is real

The feeling is erased
Track Name: SAMSARA SEA OF STARVATION
8. SAMSARA SEA OF STARVATION

I don't know what kind of road this is I walk on
but I don't want to see you at the end
she still calls to me, seductive ageless whispers
but I can't hear them through the noise in my head

I can't find a way to end myself
so I'll just watch you burn instead

I have learned to wrap this torch in my convictions
to better see the bridge I'm soon to burn
I am haunted by hereditary engines
but to this garden I cannot return

I can't find a way to end myself
so I'll just watch you die instead

just like the winds we change 
just like the peace we fade
here in the dark I wait
waiting to feel her wake
you run away from the silence inside
you run towards the noises and lights 
you run away but we're all the same
always trying to feel her awake

all my efforts of endurance and creation
were never equal to the things I waste
I have dined upon your luxury and progress
but I could never wash away the taste
Track Name: LEAD POISONING
9. LEAD POISONING

down on the floor
nobody thinks the same
I stole your cheap smile
the flowing of freezing air over my skin
reminds me were not yet dead

trust in your empty gun
dragging your arms
then feel your heart sink
trust in my lie
the dust in my empty hands
it's not yet time to be men

cause I feel you reaching
Desperate for a new god

down on the floor
nobody speaks
it's wordless twitching
lust for my crownless king
lust of a servant
erect for your lost cause

 I built you up just before I broke you down
I made you feel just before I made you steal
I made you see just before I made you blind
you know it's wrong but no-ones gonna make it right

trapped in the ovaries
the comforting safe and dark
fear that I'll one day burn 
in the hospital lights
a hologram takes my place
the mammal is left behind
it's time to become a man
and drag you outside
