I'm buried in earth and ash No longer the hand that plants the seed I am aware of beauty and symmetry I learned everything yesterday Get out and drive What words you had to say Everything's fine I remembered so vividly They'll never survive Nothing's better in history Out in the wild, a rival and those left left behind All born of wires and fire sing out to sea Your savior on a sword They'll drown high on your advice I learned everything yesterday Get out and drive What words you had to say Everything's fine I remembered so vividly They'll never survive Nothing's better in history Everything's fine I'm buried in earth and ash No longer the hand that plants the seed I am aware of beauty and symmetry I can't tell you this won't end in strife At least we'll hang and ream the fuckers that lobby and bottom feed Same result Wounds packed with salt

Price to Pay 04:03
Red light Draw outside the lines You're not the only ones No price to pay All they seek is to create ancient hell Whispers of viral hate Oh god damn Crazed as them Blood crusades Born again Know that they act of their own will and not that of any god It's only just begun Stand tall The rise will fall

Ease into your safe house Turn your dreams away And reapply your life in us Let your guard down Light faith Open your pockets Feed the beast Alone and inside the walls kept among scriptures and fed Just show me where to sign Bring your child inside Set them in the ways that are true Write and re-write the design All is loaded Reload Tell me all my fears are true Tell me I was right all along How the world's gonna burn I'm special, I'm wise, I see the truth I'll be the last one Victory in ruin I'll buy whatever it is you're selling You'll never even hear me question They're already dead You better save your neck Burn Down

Thieves 05:01
Low and feed so well on the dreams of the brighter days Writhe Buy and sign Breaking it all down fundamentally Hide Lie inside Breaking down all boundaries Stand in line Just follow all the brighter signs They'll get you there just fine Writhe Buy and sign Breaking it all down fundamentally Hide Lie inside Breaking down all boundaries Writhe Hide Those thieves left of me What was once now cannot be

Hellscape 04:03
Only the hardened remain The enslaved left alone rotting away Limbs of the damned dangle down from their chains Hit the ground running in stride The high priests, see how they advertise There's no time for glory Steer clear of the temple The wolves are inside waiting Bones break Teeth devour Hear the whispers calling you in Taste the decay They'll tear you apart limb from limb None will survive
7.
Man at Arms 04:37
Hand to god Broken ope, left to molder in the sun They've awakened, taken root Torn asunder Asphyxiated The man at arms never questions Don't give him a purpose or he'll find a way Forced to dace upon nothing They'll be born again as soldiers The man at arms never questions Don't give him a purpose or he'll find a way to cut your down Find shelter, seek the shadows Don't let them in Lay waste Sow salt The man at arms never questions Don't give him a purpose or he'll cut your down Find shelter, seek the shadows Fight your madness Lay it down Lay waste Sow salt

Smoke Trails 06:00
Red filled the air//Limbs run cold Closed off//by the open fields ahead Double back//search through the ruins Climb to a safe perch Confidence boost, an expired bottle Blood splatter//on the horizon Fleeing from//the boiling seas Heading closer//lead to danger Scale the bodies//that completed work We never felt the sun Until it burned us down Smoke trails of scents Past memories abandoned Soon to be in our grasp To answer for all that has passed Double back no missteps Run/Towards/The/Fear Closer/Still/Onward Scale/Walls/Revealed Cornered/Seize Seize....Seize Last change for forgiveness The end. The end The hunter becomes hunted The end. The end.
