Track Name: Bloodhail
I feel the top of the roof come off
Kill everybody there
As I'm watching all the stars burn out
Trying to pretend that I care

But I didn't, no-one ever does, and I would, no-one ever will

Can't you see it's all flown out of my hands
And our clothes are all too often ripped
And our teeth are all too often gnashed
And it lasts as long as it possibly can but I just don't accept this

I just don't accept this at all

Faces sweaty, arms and legs, what a glorious set of stairs we make

We kill everyone with arrowheads, arrowheads, arrowheads. Thank god that's over
Track Name: The Big Gloom
Sleeping in and out of an ice bath
No warmth, no life without
It's too much, my arms, my legs are wood, unconscious trees with roots deep in the ground
We will all be out, soon, an ocean ringed with tile.
I know that's not your style but it certainly will be mine if I can't make this right

So please, please, please, release me.

Can you hear my faintest breath, is it amplified?
The number that I've become will put you inside
I've got a message that I must relay
No, I can't delay it one more time (it's not going well)
It is desperate, can you relate, can you please, please relate? (I'm not holding up)
I am trapped, I'm stuck here on this bathroom floor and I don't have much more hope or pride
No air, no food (but I'm sure that I'm still alive..)

Just open your eyes, your dead ones (all ashes on the floor)
I will never need you more, just open your eyes, your dead ones.
Track Name: Hunter
Hunter, I'm laid out on the forest floor
arrows in my back and sides
down among the leaves and stones
you can wear my skin as armor
you can eat my flesh and bones
leave nothing that is needed
all I have is yours
And I'll give myself up to your sharpened edges
I no longer cling to my life
yes, I'm finally giving in
Teeth and hate end our relationship
of course it's sad, but that's the way it is
your violence always wins the day
yes,
your violence wins
And I'll give myself up to your sharpened edges
I no longer cling to my life
yes, I'm finally giving in
Oh, and you watch as the animals
lay themselves
down at your feet
a thousand bared teeth
a thousand bowed heads
yes, they're begging you for
death
The Hunter does us all a great service
and we've done so much to deserve it.
Track Name: Telefony
If science is half the man it says it is
Then I can build it
The machine that snaps all of time in half
I can break its back
I can break its back
I can build a door
And I can travel through
They do it with telefony
You don't see it much anymore, but
But surely I
But surely I
If I could just hear your voice
But I don't think I have the choice
The look on your face
When I first connect the line
For the very first time
My words come slowly to mind
"is anybody there?"
All trembling and scared
Replies then come
Fainter than air
"when the world hates a body, it just throws itself away to a place where our hands can't reach."
Track Name: Who Would Leave Their Son Out in the Sun
It's time that all these things that I do, no matter what, become things of the past.
It's time that all these things that I wish I could forget join in the ranks of things I regret.
But there aren't enough archangels in the sky to come down and make me feel right.

I'm miserable whenever I think of it and I think of it all the time.
You could part their feathered wings and have your way with them just like you do to all of us all the time.
What point is there in pushing on, when all you push against is a brick wall?

Everyone spends some time on the cross, I just want to make sure it's not a total loss, so maybe I'll get tanned and lose some weight while I wait.
Everyone spends some time on the cross, I just want to make sure it's not a total loss, so, deny me three times, or hurry up and fucking decide.
Track Name: Waiting For Black Metal Records To Come in The Mail
It's time that all these things that I do, no matter what, become things of the past.

Track Name: Holy Fucking Shit: 40,000
Everything you do is planned out in advance
the stars push their dark wills down on you
and wolves all tear themselves apart better in packs
that's just a function we'll have to work on through
we are machines that eat and breathe and look really cool
you're reacting just the way I thought you would
but I've replaced my heart with metal parts
and I'm working just fine, but I can't get it to start
we are machines that breathe and weep and look really good trained to kill
send me back in time and I'll bring us back in line
just tell me who's mother I have to kill
I'm fine like I've always been, except I don't remember-when
my conscience didn't act up again
we're living on borrowed time
and it looks like they want it back
Track Name: I Don't Love
I don't want to live like this, Lord
I don't want to live at all
I don't want to make this face anymore
But if I don't, that's all
I don't want to live like this anymore
I don't want to live at all
I don't want to make this face anymore
But if I don't, that's all
I don't love
I don't feel anything
I don't feel anything where this love should be
I don't want to feel this anymore
But if i don't, that's fake
I don't want to do this anymore
But there's nothing else to take
I don't love
I don't feel anything
I don't feel anything where this love should be
Track Name: Earthmover
Carved out of stone, earth, blood and bone
Knock the mountains down
The earth's grating sounds
They soothe the great machines
That yearn desperately
Just to lay them down within her gaping mouth
More than a symbol
More than I bargained for
They wander ridges high
Between the earth and sky
Like spikes upon a crown we wear upon our brow
And want is not a need reserved for human beings
It's fingers on your throat
Is pain that all things know
An army of the golems is stalking, now, the heart's lands
Eating all reality
Producing only dust and sand
Nothing hurts them
Nothing gets under their stone skin
And when their earthen mouths will open up
Just what words should come out? but
"we wish we were dead"
