Track Name: Walk Away
Lyrics


Yeah!

(Verse)

Swallow your pride or you'll say words you can't take back.

Second guessing all the things you've done.
As they lead you to this moment of reckoning,
Where do your values lie?
Where do your values lie?
Sewer rats,
Your filth only falls downwards.
Sludge pours,
Your mouth is a gaping cesspool.

Bacteria!

Oh!

will your ignorance ever cease?

Awkwardly walking through the streets alone,
Callous glances ripping through the peverbial shield.
Is this really what you want to be?


(Chorus)

Turn around,
Cause' I really don't wanna see your face.
(You make me fucking sick).
Walk away,
I don't care what you have to say.
(No more excuses)

(Bridge)

How can it come to this?
One of you but I still dont fit.

Shit pouring from your face.
Take the key, lock your lips
and shove it up your ass.


(Verse)

I can't stand,
what you have become,
Relentlessly judging and tearing down your peers.
Why would anyone,
Looking from the outside,
Want to be one of your kind?

Sewer rats,
Your filth only falls downwards.
Sludge pours,
Your mouth is a gaping cesspool.

Bacteria doesn't make me feel nearly as queasy as you do.
Because you're a far deadlier kind of virus.
Eating through the flesh and bones,
Of what you see as the "weaker" beings.

Oh!

What you see as weekness,
Is the fuel for my strength,
And the "strength" you so dearly posess,
Is a mere facade fronting greater weakness than you've ever know.
You posses a greater weakness than you've ever known.

Fall through the cracks of your disposition
You can feel the full force of your aberration,
Undermining other beings of your species,
Who gave you the final hand of judgement?
Track Name: Swamps of Sadness
Lyrics


(Intro)

Down, so far down,
You can't see the end.
Swallowing the life from your heart.

Woah, Find the strength,
To fight it back again.
Searching through the remains
Of a mind holding hope,

(Verse 1)

Murky viscid fluid fills these lungs.
Bitter memories ripping away my breath
Trudging through the wasteland inside,
Trying desperately to find a sense of direction.

Futile are all attempts to re-tame the animosity,
Surging through my veins, bleeding from my thoughts
Outcast, the more they know, the more they become
aware that they will never understand

(Pre-Pre Chorus)

The emptiness consumes everything,
Growing to devour all my instincts,
Every step more tedious than the previous
The thought of giving up swelling from within.

(Pre Chorus)

My bones are laid in Pickering
I'll be damned if I see that town again
Skin masks pulled into sickening grins
Stabbing at the vulnerability within.


(Chorus)

|Hold on| find the will to pull yourself through
|Be strong| though the past bites at your heels.
|You're not alone|
I could never be the piece you need,
your masterpiece remains incomplete.
|In the shadows|
Lurking in the shadows - now I see,
Never again will you make me bleed.

(Verse 2)

Oh, I've spoke too soon
I'm sinking again
This captivating sludge,
seeping back
Into my system
Preying on me,
Or am I the one
preying upon myself.

(Chorus x2)

|Hold on| find the will to pull yourself through
|Be strong| though the past bites at your heels.
|You're not alone|
I could never be the piece you need,
your masterpiece remains incomplete.
|In the shadows|
Lurking in the shadows - now I see,
Never again will you make me bleed.
Track Name: Northern Remnants
Lyrics


(Intro)

I hear the heartache,
As it stems from a time and place unknown.
Drag me back to where it started,
It never really was a home

Amidst the outbreaks of violence,
These games begin to take their toll,
Taking stabs at my mind and body,
But you will never scathe my soul.

(Verse 1)
So, This is what it all comes down to?
The clumsy fool's ugly fall from grace,
Hindered abilities, I'm crippled by rejection.
Inside, a mounting disdain towards you.

(Pre Chorus)
But Still I can't make myself understand,
I want to scream "Someone tell me why!"

(Chorus)
Why does this world seem so much darker,
To me, to me.
Why must everything fall apart,
Out from underneath my feet?

(Breakdown #1)

Oh! The Dejection of being pushed aside itches,
Burrowing beneath my skin.


"And the problem is, if I've told you once,
I've told you a thousand fucking times."

(Breakdown #2)
The world has changed from what you used to know,
You are blind to what has become.
But still your ignorance bleeds onto me.
Punished by your refusal to accept the truth.

(Breakdown #3)
The truth has become my prison,
Time's decay now wrestles my mind.
Why?!(x3)

(Chorus)
Why does this world seem so much darker,
To me, to me.
Why must everything fall apart,
Out from underneath my feet?

(Outro)
Nothing,
I know I'm Nothing.

Help me!
Tidal thoughts pound the shore

Nothing,
I know I'm nothing.

Help me!
Tidal thoughts pound the shore

You made me collapse.
Always pushing forward, but ending up further back.(x2)
Track Name: Bitches for ma' Bitches
Lyrics


(Verse)

I aint from this world,
I aint from this world.
Two faces to elaborate the dimensionless hate,
Three attempts to be free of my mind & escape.

Ha. Ill give ya something else to sing to.

I keep my eyes closed and focus on the rhythm of my heart beat,

Deep breaths, fill my chest. Fuck anxiety...

Try to find the courage to get up and face a new day,

Before this beast awakes again and strips it all away.

I remember hearing someone sing,

"When the paper's crumpled up it cant be perfect again"

As I'm thinking to myself "What the fuck does that mean?

What if the paper wasn't perfect to begin with? What then?"

Fuck it. It aint even worth my time.

Spend too much saving my own helpless mind.

Wrangle fugal pieces, oh my self-esteem decreases,

a concience never ceases but my skin surely releases.

Oh shit. Not this road again.

Funny how gentle thoughts'll force you round the bend.

Constantly questioning, doubt, second guessing,

Mind never resting, "maybe the end is the best thing..."

Cancel out the visions which seek to imprison.

Everyone around alienated into villains,

Segregate myself due to growing indecision.

Like some monk's self-mummification mission.

Can't slow it down always falling to stitches,

Coping is a bitch, so theyll both be my bitches.

Thats funny, I got bitches for my bitches.

Maybe when I survive they'll really see the bitch is.

Its so exhausting to do this day to day,

Without giving this shit a chance to get in the way.

People commenting "Oh, I don't know what to say."

"Yeah, that helps a fucking lot, now go the fuck away."

Cause this is something you can get sick of so fucking fast,

Your brain wont allow the past to stay in the past.

Constant bombardment little monitoring attacks,

Craning your head over awkwardly like "Bitch, did I ask..."



(Verse - Screams)

"...For Your Attention".
Prying through these bones to feed
your social appetite.

I Wont Be Broken
Or be brought down to your sick twisted life

(Chorus)

How do you expect me,
to make it one more day?
What now?
What now?
What now?
There's nothing left to say.

How dare you disrespect me?
I'm stronger than you know.
Who're you?
Who're you?
Who're you?
I've got more faces than I show.



(Verse - Scream Rap)

Oh!
Take a step into these shoes.
Suffer through the self abuse.
Compulsive logic so hypnotic,
Shaking hands it's too chaotic.
Breaking down at every road I cross.
Can't help feeling at a loss...
Wrangle fugal pieces, oh my self-esteem decreases,
a concience never ceases but my skin surely releases.
Oh shit. Not this road again.
Funny how gentle thoughts'll force you round the bend.
Constantly questioning, doubt, second guessing,
Mind never resting, "maybe the end is the best thing..."
Stuck at the whims of demons never resting,
Swallow me whole fuck this shit is depressing.

(Slam)

Hollow nothing left inside.
Can't take away. What was never there.
I can't breathe.
Disappearing.

(Chorus)

How do you expect me,
to make it one more day?
What now?
What now?
What now?
There's nothing left to say.

How dare you disrespect me?
I'm stronger than you know.
Who're you?
Who're you?
Who're you?
I've got more faces than I show.

(Outro)

I won't give in to this mother fucking self-destruction
Never surrender Fuck Let me tell you something.
Mindless confusion endless delusions,
Too much worry wasted over nothing
There's no escape, There's no escape.
There's no escape, There's no escape.
I won't give in - but, there's no escape.
Track Name: Auryn (Ouroboros)
Verse

What if this never ends?
Sleepless nights, somber silhouettes
Dancing in the dark.
A distorted recollection acted through vague memory,

My mind is exhausted from the journey,
A pair of legs refuse to move.
And if I can't push through anymore
What do I really have to lose?

Pre chorus

Cause I've been far too long
Feeling my way through the darkness.
Too many questions remain unanswered,
Spinning tangled webs through my head.

Chorus

Tell me why should I carry on, (Tell me why)
Looking down - at the edge. (Looking down)
I'm so broken I can't feel my hands, (I'm so broken)
Does it get better? (Does It get better)
Everything tells me it won't.

Verse 2


I'm on the other side of everything I need,
Separated by these flames these waters seem to bleed.
Calling out my name from "silent" depths within,
Beckoning my presence, it always ends where it begins.

Breakdown:

FUCK! I can't do this anymore.
Been holding on too long.
Convincing myself the nonexistence
Of visions burning strong.

Chorus (As Above)

Chorus Extension

Tell me I'm worth more than words could say,
'Cause I'd give anything to feel that way.
I'll walk you straight through this, hand-in-hand.
Why do I feel that you'll never understand.

Outro

How distorted could this be, lucid visions,
combined with vague memories. I could never do this again,
I still wonder how I got this far.
Track Name: Exodus
Lyrics


(Intro)
Exodus!
I hate everything that you are!

(Verse)

I disfigure myself
As the uncanny revelations
Of our past course through my head
Like sparks on concrete.
So convinced of my cursed exclusion
That I self-destruct
Beneath the agonizing tension inside.

(Pre Chorus)

As I crumble, the flakes fall at my feet,
I am the captive of an ignorant overlord.
Susceptible to all that proliferates,
Manifesting from the need of total control.


(Chorus)
I did everything that I could...Exodus!
To make you proud...Exodus!
It was the one and only thing... Exodus!
That ever really mattered.

(Breakdown #1.)
I spend my nights flirting
with the idea of death
as though we're soulmates (x2)

Oh Nothing ever changes,
I'm stuck cycling through
These obsessive patterns endlessly.

(Breakdown #2.)
I hate everything that you are.
I hate everything that you are.
I must find an escape from the endless oppression.

(Chorus)
I did everything that I could...Exodus!
To make you proud...Exodus!
It was the one and only thing... Exodus!
That ever really mattered.
Track Name: Crawling
Lyrics

(Intro)
And if I ever close my eyes again,
I'll come crawling back to you,
I'll pick up the pieces of my heart,
And I'll hold them out to you. (x2)

(Pre-Chorus)

The screams, ringing through my ears,
overwhelming memories.
Oh! I'm left here standing on my own!
My hands cover my ears as I pray for silence.
Silence!

(Chorus)

And if I ever close my eyes again,
I'll come crawling back to you,
I'll pick up the pieces of my heart,
And I'll hold them out to you.

(Breakdown 1)

Look into your heart!
The sun will rise again.
I can't let you go.
I'll hold you 'till the end.

(Chorus)

And if I ever close my eyes again,
I'll come crawling back to you,
I'll pick up the pieces of my heart,
And I'll hold them out to you. (x2)

(Breakdown 2)

Haunting memories,
I cant erase!
(Yeah!)
Endless turmoil,
You have brought upon me,
until the fucking end, I will haunt your thoughts.

(Breakdown 3)

Until the fucking end, I will haunt your thoughts,
'Till the ground caves in concealing where your body rots.
And when it fucking comes, I'll be there to wave,
As I'm dancing merrily upon your fucking grave. (x6)
Track Name: Oceans of Acid Tears
Oh!

Don't think I can't feel your restlessness inside,
I won't let you take over again.

Pulling aimlessly at odds and ends
frivolously trying to string
bits and pieces
of myself back together
Can't seem to find the parts
That matter the most

But it won't deter me,
Been broken too long,
Isolated, trapped away,
By the sea of acid,
Thoughts I cant bear to have,
Swimming around freely,
Biting away pieces that,
I really can't spare.

Chorus

Give me a moment while I lick my wounds,
Don't let yourself be confused
You see a weakness in the man I am,
But you'll eat your words in the end.
(X2)

Trapped out to sea on an ocean of poison thoughts
A raft made of false hope -blind optimism

Forcefully driven into our mouths triggering polyannic behavior,
Just to see if you will sink or be lucky enough to find hope.
Stripped of all identity.

the ones who survive,
Merely shells, what kind of life is that?
I'd rather feel too much, than nothing at all.


Chorus

Give me a moment while I lick my wounds,
Don't let yourself be confused
You see a weakness in the man I am,
But you'll eat your words in the end.
(X3)

You could never know what it is to be like this,
There is no shame in the disturbing thoughts we suffer,
Were you in a burning building, helpless, would you jump?
Or lie by the flames and wait until you are smothered? NO!

There's no shame in looking for an escape.
There's no weakness in mutilation.
You may find that there is another way,
To find some small source of motivation.
(x2)

Your life is worth it! (x4)
