Track Name: Aorta
And I promise myself that I will kill at least one
Before they take me

And I promise myself that I won't be alone
When they take me

This is my face
Covered in make-up
The water you're thirsting for
Turns out to be mostly mud
Track Name: Civil
Don't
Hate me
You're just a nation in shock that doesn't know what it could be
Track Name: Meditate
The purple lights
Once we're dead will shine
I asked them why
They said that's what they've chosen

It's time to fly
In the purple sky
No reason to cry
For that's what I've chosen

So let me meditate
So let me meditate
Now let me meditate
Just let me meditate

Held together by the wire
On which crawls a purple spider
In the forest of my own lie
I got lost
This is where I'm going to die

Into the soil
I will return
It'll end just how it started
It will break into my mouth
And I will swallow down
The fate
I haven't desired
Track Name: HIV
This is the perfect moment to begin
To watch saliva run down your chin
This is the perfect moment to unhide

What your true nature had in mind

What are you trying to make me say?

I'm not a part of the game you play

We could still be friends
We're not so different, after all
And no light we ever make
Will be brighter than the sun

No light we ever make will be brighter than the sun
Sun, sun, sun

Woke up in darkness running cold
It can't be dark at this time of the day
(the clock is dead)
The blood was dry
(the blood)
Life made escape out of me
In the darkness I noticed you
Does dying work both ways if you want it to?

Does dying work both ways if you want it to?
Track Name: Rotor
Draw
The blood
In showers

My arms are open wide

Drop
The blood
In channels

It's time to strip your life

Break
The bone
Remote
Alone

Rotation
Track Name: Slow
If I had the power
If I had a choice
Things I would desire
All those things of yours

And if I had the power
If I had control
I would take it slowly
But I would take it all

Power

Control
Track Name: In the River
I have tried to live inside my head
I know
That once the body dies, the mind is dead
I know
That if you throw the rotten fruit in the river
The waters take away what they've been given

And we
Are running away
Hand in hand
Together
We
Like to think
That we can cheat death
And live forever

Every segregation
Is a separate phenomenon of its time
What you used to think was yours
Has turned its back
And become mine

And we always used to say
That we have a little plan
That we won't reveal
Only I can break the spell
'Cause you
Were never there for me

At the point of no return
Where you should've seen it all
By all the damage done
It's down to you to take the fall
Track Name: Pink
In moments like these
Anyone will do
Fear and loathing have their place
Right beside you
Find myself in that place
I never thought I would
And tie my own hands
I never thought I could

I know what I've done
I know what I'm here for

Relationships
That I don't understand
Where they're both young
But it's too late
To turn around
Track Name: Turmoil
You'll collapse at my feet
And lick my boots clean
In the shame and defeat
Should've ran when I let you go

Now I'm in your house
Now I'm in your bed
There is no escape from something
That lives inside your head

They swarm where the blood is
They swarm where the blood is

In you

I'll make you ugly on the inside
Plant dirt inside your soul
Black spots on your heart
Your mouth a bleeding hole

Little satan's crib
Hides behind your teeth
Every flip of the tongue
Reveals the libels underneath
Track Name: Very Little People
My mouth waters when I think about
Eating that heart of yours
Counting the layers of wrong

The cruelty of death over cruelty of life
Life turns out to be crueler
When your hopes are high

In the necessity of getting to know
The name of what you want
You learn that in your way
Is the man who bought the world

Very little people

We're so fucking small
Track Name: Math
Why stop at a thousand fingers if the machines can still hold more?
Why burn your money in hate if you can trade it for love?

'Cause you can only be king
If you live at the bottom of a lake
But you're too deluded
Make too many mistakes
The only way to see the sun
Is to keep your head above the water

Beating metal on leather
Believing
In better is cheaper
The only way to escape this state
Is to go deeper
