Track Name: Canto XXVIII
Dirty electric sunrise gold
Dreams of nothing stained and cold
Revival pyres in the sun again, she never feels the slivers
She makes it so easy to lie when she always asks you to forgive her
Liquid black on the river bank, the cyanide of a lover's tear
Ask of truth and when I answer, listen to the wind and pretend you can't hear
Sister you can't hear
Scream another lullaby to me
Comfort in the false reality
Addiction
Autumn breeds sweet carrion
Rejected pale beautiful sin
Her tongue is cold on my skin
Veinblossom wet with real joy
You always were my favorite toy
The air is different out here tonight, heavy with a taste of soured dreams
Promises wrote and forged to my name, she cuts herself on the broken edge
The casualties reach the heavens, who couldn't see this come and go?
Turnabout taken to the tenfold but irony is not a word you'd ever know
So much you'd never know
Out from the sky
Cut your losses now and say goodbye
Forget my name
If I promise that I'll do the same
Track Name: Copperhead
Lies paint the panorama of the young
Optimistic splatters on an effervescent canvas
The melodies of sirens I was sung
Return today in echoes of abortion lullaby stanzas
Seek nothing find nothing
It's all prepackaged for you from the self-proclaiming wise
Liberty whispers of the past
How she buckles agony's grasp on me
Find nothing speak nothing
Dwell on all the nothing let the weight preclude a rise
Passionless surfeit fills up my veins
Preyed on by hollow deities that rain on me rain on me
No guarantees but for the freedom whispers of the stones
On these trails of absolutely no direction we struggle to ascend
The silence screams, the innocence of her languid tones
Her raven hair that plays among the dead wind
Seek nothing find nothing
It's all prepackaged for you from the self-proclaiming wise
Liberty whispers of the past
How she buckles agony's grasp on me
Find nothing speak nothing
Dwell on all the nothing let the weight preclude a rise
Passionless surfeit fills up my veins
Preyed on by hollow deities that rain on me rain on me
Suffered by the past, no more to linger or last
Lover thinks I've something to defend
Exhaustion for emptiness once before my eyes
From here on I paint my own suns to rise
Track Name: Marrubium Vulgare
Let's drink from the Lethe in my hands, baby, baptize me in hell
Feel my lips as if there's one more nothing in there for me to tell
Don't you feel the lustful majesty in every shadow behind the lies
I'm betraying an angel for you so lay back baby and watch it die
Keep it with yours above the dying embers of the sun
The butchered sky calypso dreams and bleeds on everyone
I reap hopeless melodies of broken splintered notes
We carve our own epitaphs of forbidden verse we wrote
Blindly we shriek at the nothing if only to hear echoes crying
Sleeping we suckle the hemlock if only to know that we're dying
My love my love my dead love
Now the hangmen kick the dead leaves and idly wait for dawn
This deception like auroras only realized when they're gone
Now angel's in the Bowery, my hands are drenched with guilt
And you and I are running like children toward the suicide we built
Codeine dreaming, black soil scars the blue
Suck my vengeance, nobody knows for who
Just like my angel, swallowing every lie
A crystalline facade I'm growing weary holding high
Keep it with yours above the dying embers of the sun
The butchered sky calypso dreams and bleeds on everyone
Track Name: Hunger Is Freedom
Repetition breeds security
Glazed in the afterbirth of Ouroboros tears
These are the walking dead among us
Condition instinct to the insect drone nobody hears
This is your paragon of progress
This is your civilized hive
Take our souls we don't need 'em
I've learned that hunger is freedom
To starve is to be alive
Protracted suicide redeems us
Exchanged for silver for to gild up the cage
Submission dictates your survival
Living to work to exist to work to exist and age
This is your paragon of progress
This is your civilized hive
Fuck our souls we don't need 'em
I've learned that hunger is freedom
To starve is to be alive
I've learned that hunger is freedom
To starve is to be alive, alive
Track Name: Dark Little Cloud
Mass graves I bring myself to the ground
In the sun no one sees you no one can be found
Weren't you always my dark little cloud in the sky?
Dark little cloud in the sky?
We breathe quickening the night
She lies, love me kill me either way's all right
Weren't you always my dark little cloud in the sky?
Dark little cloud in the sky?
On my knees
Weren't you always my dark little cloud in the sky?
Dark little cloud in the sky?
Track Name: Cambodia '73
Destroy destroy
Meet your maker
Delivered by god, I am your god
I am omega...death
Hail the wreckage, this is where it all ends
Let the holy winds cleanse you
Nothing left now to fear
I never wished death on anyone...
...quite so strong before
I bring you one last sunset, last dawn
Now your god is come to take you home
Now your god is come to take you home
Track Name: Watch The Sky Descend
I know I'm seeing the end
Crawling into the never
The sky's forever brass behind the ashes
We will live and die right here forever
With smiles painted like dolls
With smiles painted like dolls
Oh can't you hear this death?
Your god don't come around here
Yeah, I can hear this death
Comin down down like Satan's tear
I know I'm seeing the end
Crawling into the never
Your god don't come around here
We will live and die die die right here forever
Rain on, rain on, rain on, rain on
I still hear voices from the throats of the dolls
Baby's got a hymnal authored straight from the walls
Television Christ got something to say
Hemlock in the glass but we drink it anyway
Run run run run run run run run run run run run run
Run run run run run run run run run run run run run
Everybody run run run for your cold Golgotha
Everybody watch the sky descend, but I know
I know
It's only fallout baby, it's only fallout baby
It's only fallout baby, it's only fallout baby
Sweet death angel come and cleanse us in his light
Want to make love in the ashes while the embers still glowing bright
And the way to hell is open to all today
And the way to heaven will get you there anyway
Track Name: Sedative Erotique
I'm not gonna stop myself this time
Gonna let it break on through
No heart to hold me back
Wanna soak my hands in crimson black
I realize now that all I knew was just facade
Rabid and rehearsed again
Parasites that crowd the way
Violent stupidity viral bleeding through the clay
Meaningless and sanctified
Words you never have to speak
Time to break the silence now
Show your love through gasping shrieks
Scream for me scream for me scream for me
Scream now my dying love
Show me what exquisite pain is
Scream for me, your god above
Scream for me scream for me scream for me
Scream now my dying love
Show me what exquisite pain is
Scream for me your god above
I won't destroy myself, much better to take it out on you
My favorite parasite, choke it down til you can't take it
I can't control myself, won't stop until I've had my fill
Gonna force it deep inside, take it all
Take take it all
Take it all
Take it all until I'm through
She tells me this is suicide...but I'm not through
Track Name: Broken Gospel Train
We cry masqueraded nothings
Black rainbows silhouette the sky
We sleep the electromanic carnival
Heard our murder like a murmur in the night
Oh-ooo don't you know the world is gonna end right here?
This light like a thousand sunsets
Dust of bones the saints forgot to bless
Rain is falling, dead railmen sing in harmony
Hymns that comfort on a broken gospel train
Oh-ooo don't you know the world is gonna end right here?
Pale September carrion love
Vacant dying floods from above
Drained immobile blades of grass bleed
Angel's bed now the wide open sea
Sister got a brand new hangman
Wet with christening an agonized facade
Now I'm holding hands with dead limbs
Let the oceans fall and drown us with our god
Track Name: Love Like Blade To Marrow
the mirror doesn't match my face
she cries vivid pain in the throes of dead love
she never understood
i never understood
things were better then
corruptible as killers
watching my cold air in the violent streetlight midnight
destructive lover breathed a seventh farewell
in the backseat where promises of dying resound
under drones of deathbirds in the sky
wandering hangmen waiting for someone
anyone
anyone
anyone at all
i was lying paling in the mausoleum vineyards
surrounded by chalk outlines of the martyrs
sifting through spoiled grapes and counting blades of grass
you sat breathing audibly and visibly in the cold
frost pale arms and painted claws
regaling me of what i've seen before
and again
and again
we pick the carcass of the dreams that rot
we turn the knife like cannibals to stab our dying meat
complacent riding the rail from beginning to beginning
i have seen the creation
watching the rain dry on the stones that await to be conglomerated to my headstone
pale carrion in the silent bayou midnight
codeine dreams of violation and depravity in drag swallowing rosestems
tear me open and let the dead leaves fall
as i wake whisper a socratic hymn to my ears
a funeral dirge in minor tones of ironic clairvoyance
we drift along the black rivers destroying everything so beautifully beyond any grave shadow
i see now
shadows are dead without the sun
i want to see liquid grey and splintered spines
i was picking the feathers off your discarded wings
my dead seraphim
my beautiful lucifer angel
