Posessed 03:55
I shouldn't sleep, I'll wake up on the other side I cannot eat, I'm not clean No rest, I've been bad, I need to repent confess, I'm possessed Nightmare But I can't tell anyone I'm on my own reject, neglect Nightmare But I can't tell anyone I'm on my own reject, neglect They're looking over my shoulder eyes in the dark, everywhere, they watch, they stare I seek refuge in the streets at night in the alleys, clear of the lights, their eyes and obedient minds fast heart rate, looming in the shadows until my escape comes to end night turns to day, my body aches and swells I fall asleep, through a portal to hell red eyes grinding teeth in my mind there's a portal to hell I shouldn't sleep, I'll wake up on the other side I can't eat, I'm not clean No rest, I've been bad, I need to repent, confess, I'm possessed shut your mouth shut your ear shut your fucking face you didn't see nor hear I'll peel your eyes I'll cut your ears I will rip out your tongue so you won't tell anyone Nightmare But I can't tell anyone I'm on my own reject, neglect Nightmare But I can't tell anyone I'm on my own reject, neglect Nightmare But I can't tell anyone I'm on my own reject, neglect Nightmare But I can't tell anyone I'm on my own reject, neglect

Confessional 03:21
I am trapped here I don't know where Silence, take me far away Do you hear the voices? they speak to me When my limbs move without consent, it must be them I'm not like the others, and they all know I'm not myself, I'm alone, I need help and they all know you're all so suppressive thoughts so infected no words to explain it It's like I'm trapped in your shame I'm all that's to blame I can't be contained I keep hoping there is life outside of here I see freedom seeping in through every tree I won't stop until their voices let me be I can't ever answer what is wrong with me I am trapped here I don't know where Silence, take me far away can't you hear the voices? they speak to me I'm not myself, I'm alone, I need help and they all know I'm counting sins, losing track of every deed I've done sorry brothers, sorry father, who it may concern bread and wine won't help at all for how I've been and seem it might be hard, but try to hear they speak to me I keep hoping there is life outside of here I see freedom seeping in through every tree I won't stop until their voices let me be I can't ever answer what is wrong with me

Argument 03:56
I beg and beg, but they won't let me go the priest is sure of it, my demons have to go You know there are other ways I know there are places i could go I'm aching from the weight of the boulder I'm done living below The fever kicks in burns my skin it will not help and you won't save yourself I am fighting for my life but their ropes will not break I am lost in the face of death and they've got you Let me be Don't pull that shit on me Church of hypocrisy I'll show you blasphemy Fuck your cult I'm Brutus, I'm Judas I beg and beg, but they won't let me go the priest is sure of it, my demons have to go Put down the cross you won't help me you won't save yourself kindness is a common sense abuse does not bring deliverance The fever kicks in burns my skin it will not help and you won't save yourself I am fighting for my life but their ropes will not break I am lost in the face of death and they've got you I beg and beg, but they won't let me go the priest is sure of it, my demons have to go You know there are other ways I know there are places i could go You know there are other ways I know there are places i could go I'm aching from the weight of the boulder I'm done living below The fever kicks in burns my skin it will not help and you won't save yourself I'm fighting for my life but their ropes will not break I am lost in the face of death and they've got you

Death Eating 03:25
Innocent mind More innocent than a first born But behind these innocent eyes A misconception was a cape that I first wore What’s the reason that I’m here for? These walls keeps talkin, the door slams open I can't take this, motherfucker, i'll be the last nail in your coffin No sleep tonight, skin pushed, to the steel bed-frame with my hands tied Come closer, this is all you, look in my eyes You just woke the demon inside Repent? I'll make you regret it I plot revenge at every prayer, you won't forget it I needed help, and I was alone But I was thrown down under the weight of your throne “I command you” “Depart, depart” “I confront you” “Depart, depart from this serpent of god” Repent, I'll make you regret it Repent, I'm plotting revenge at every prayer Repent, You won’t forget it Repent, I'll make you regret it No sleep tonight, skin pushed, to the steel bed-frame with my hands tied Come closer, this is all you, look in my eyes You just woke the demon inside The beast, just smoke and mirrors They believe that I can be another finger on the gun They want me to be a serpent, they want to see me hurt, tryna close the curtain crush with the weight of their throne I see red, red, rum I feel I’m burning and I can't move, cannot make a sound I feel dead, dead, dead and gone Put your hand upon my head, tryna force the demon out Release me, fuck your god and the lies that you feed me Retaliation won’t come easy, Every chance imma seize it I’m there just believe me I hear your words the voice respond It follows me to my death and beyond Your torture just causin my wrongs to be stronger, stop callin your savior to save me, you're causing it all You’re killing me, motherfucker, how come you cannot see it? I’m sinking to the abyss, falling down to my knees It’s so illiterate, thinking, even consider it, that I’m a sinner voices in my head is just a spirit, man I can't believe it I’m feeling like I’m burning up I panic, everything is hurting, stop it now I’ve heard enough Next one to bite the dust Next one is one of us I won’t rest until you’re crushed on your way to see the god you trust. No sleep tonight, Skin pushed, to the steel bed-frame with my hands tied Come closer, this is all you, look in my eyes You just woke the demon inside Repent? I'll make you regret it I plot revenge at every prayer, you won't forget it I needed help, and I was alone But I was thrown down under the weight of your throne Repent? I'll make you regret it Repent? I'm plotting revenge at every prayer Repent? You won’t forget it Repent? I'll make you regret it

I've reached bliss after years in the abyss I'm reborn found the joy that I missed I freed the captive that I used to be it was a dream then, but I still believe I found the real lies laying the basis for real lives deceitful identities built on the fake disrupting your mind in the world of the snakes I'm hungry for more I'm coming, I'm strong observe it I fucking deserve it I'm not abandoning friends I'm abandoning problems I'm fighting to restart a black heart I'm done with the darkness and it might be working out I found the real lies under the fake lives fought my way out made my way out I've reached bliss after years in the abyss I'm reborn found the joy that I missed I freed the captive that I used to be it was a dream then, but I still believe 7 years on the grind I'm still in it I have a purpose and I scream it so they'll pay attention to the misfits I'm not abandoning friends I'm abandoning problems I'm fighting to restart a black heart I'm done with the darkness and it might be working out I found the real lies under the fake lives fought my way out made my way out

Lock Shut 03:57
You've come to know, these waters to well They don't mirror heaven, nor resemble hell They're ever reaching waters Of angst and despair It's not bad to be fair As it's fear, not love, that conquers all It's always there when you fall I am a hypocrite It’s for survival, a way to feel normal I have nothing to give So why aren’t you fucking leaving Shards of glass on dark, cold, floor Lush, violent anger, held back no more Relapse Repeat Once more, defeat Numbing I've been waiting for this spin of insensibility Shutting down Then it turns around A pleasant feeling of loss A lovely smell of grief Just take it from me Nothing ever felt this bleak You've come to know, these waters to well They don't mirror heaven, nor resemble hell They're ever reaching waters Of angst and despair As it is fear, not love, that conquers all It's always there when you fall I twist the cold hard steel till I hear it click I pull back hard on the handle to make sure of it These locked doors deliver the solitude that I look for To grey matter in civil war, they're safe shores I know the knocks on the door know that I need them So I write my thoughts down, to save them And these words are soliloquies From minds that are their own damn enemies I am a hypocrite It’s for survival, a way to feel normal I have nothing to give So why aren’t you fucking leaving Shards of glass on dark, cold, floor Lush, violent anger, held back no more Relapse Repeat Once more, defeat

Oil Rigs 03:14
Black gold Back to battle, the call goes Black gold under my foothold Pipe’s in a chokehold, under control We all know, we break our backs for products already sold I can't shake the mindset I was told I carry thought and ways of old It's so fake Am I disposable? It's what I feel when I leave And while I, left long ago I'm tied to thoughts that still grow Dissociated, as days turn to years I'm never here, when I'm here Calloused hands Providing For what, for who? Searchlights scour every wall Where can I find home for me alone? Black gold We break our backs for products already sold Black gold We break our backs for products already sold We break our backs for products already sold Already sold Black gold Back to battle, the call goes Black gold under my foothold Pipe’s in a chokehold, under control We all know, we break our backs for products already sold I'd settle if I could It's all on me, but I can't reach my dream I'm guilty I'm thinking about it every day, constantly There's something wrong with me, there's always been and I know Imagining scenarios where you go I’d settle if I could I’d settle if I could Calloused hands hanging head Providing For what, for who? Searchlights scour every wall Where can I find home for me alone Searchlights scour every wall Where can I find home for me alone Black gold We break our backs for products already sold Black gold We break our backs for products already sold We break our backs for products already sold Already sold

Cheater 03:23
coming home, early what's with the open door? where's the front key? static on the phone can't shake the thought house should be empty this hour she's not alone, what the fuck? My picture watching you fuck, from the frame, on the walls that you tore down he's tainted your body, I don't share I'll stab you and I'll fuck your open wound instead How much money to be loyal, huh? how many likes to be loyal, huh? how much attention to be loyal, huh? It's not enough? It's not enough? I work all fucking day being loyal bringing money while I'm slaving for a future for the kids for the momentary bliss when I come home but you treat me like shit we promised blue skies but we ended up living a lie I should have planned the census I should have locked you in this stone paved path now broken you let him taste your skin My picture watching you fuck, from the frame, on the walls that you tore down he's tainted your body, I don't share I'll stab you and I'll fuck your open wound instead Unfaithful, unclean there's nothing left to sever the scratch marks on his back my scars forever you'll get the fucking money you'll get the fucking gold always first to clear the site where my possessions fall VULTURE looking out for yourself only always looking for the kill circling till I run out of power making me suffer still No matter what she taught you what ethics might have stuck with you she don't even bother to stay true to herself forget it, just forget it mother doesn't love you anymore you'll get the fucking money you'll get the fucking gold always first to clear the site where my possessions fall you'll get the fucking money you'll get the fucking gold always first to clear the site where my possessions fall

Heartless 03:36
I was alone when it began I still am Here’s to the few that stuck by You know I tried When the weight kept stacking up I still fought To barely get a taste of What we sought The remedy A life born free But the fires came back to haunt me I still hear the voices When the fires come back again I still hear the voices When the fires come back again And it still burns in my chest I’ve become heartless It still infects my chest I’m still possessed
