Track Name: Whore Heart
She breathed in smoke
And spit out her last chances in
And spit out her last chances out

Wrong turn turn wrong

This dirty light she's bathed in
She turned her filthy gaze to me
These horrid thoughts turn round
Turn never to right now

With eyes made raw and hair like a burn
I found myself mirrored in the heart of this whore
Everything wrong
Everything wrong
Everything tastes like smoke

Dead parts of me lust for you
For the death in your every pore

Death in every pore

My lust for her
Death in every pore

Walk me to the small room
Make me the king of this abattoir
Walk me to the white walls
Drunk on the taste and stench of hell
Walk me to the altar
Make me the groom to this whore bride
Lie to me
Give me the light between your legs
The gift you have
A bottom to hit
Bow my head
To wash my neck to slit my throat

Slit my throat
Track Name: The Rats Wore Parasites
Invade this place
Spreading your pestilence
Calamitous, bloodborne
Damnable reprobates
Hiding in shadows
Tainting all that you touch
Callous, hateful
Villainous

Languishing vermin
No poison can quell
Your very gaze
A pathogen

Expanding your nests, building an empire
Finding new hosts to carry your sickness
Feverish they spread your affliction
Propogate, drive us away

On the hill
Perched like kings
Fattened, contemptible
Ever feasting

Expanding your nests, building an empire
Finding new hosts to carry your sickness
Feverish they spread your affliction
Propogate, drive us away

Survival not granted, a plague is unleashed
Words are a weapon, hatred a sieve
Synapses built fall like Rome
They are liars, we are fools

(Let them in) Let them in
(Let them in) The rats wore parasites
(The rats wore parasites) Like a crown
(Like a crown)
Track Name: Hiding in the Tall Grass
To keep quiet
He lived under the water
And learned to breathe

His shut down lifetime
Sing a lie of a love song to consequence

They knew it was ghostwritten
Or stolen outright

The sins alive
Its burning
There are divided bodies around your neck

You were hiding in the tall grass
Hiding in the tall grass

Consumed and desperate
The snake eats its own tail

The sins alive
Its burning
There are divided bodies around your neck

Sing your dead song to the sky
Track Name: The Withering Field
His stomach is stone
Built of revolt
Flesh betrays
And wastes away

Languishing days (Slothful)
Denial a road to the end
Jaundicing skin (Waxen)
Blood gone septic

A terrible curse (Hunger)
Growing inside
Abyss in the eyes (Empty)
Deepest waters

He is the bearer of bad news (Palms outstretched)
He is the withering field (Turning to dust)
He is the prodigal son (Inheritance lost)
Casting his pall

His stomach is stone
Built of revolt
Flesh betrays
And wastes away
Track Name: Owner and Owned
Small
That's what you look like to me
We've no secrets left
No indulgence for our tiny pains

What do you see when you're clear?
What do you think of yourself now?

Where you fall
Is where you lay
Wreckage in the street
The look, the shock, the numb
The pain that made us crawl

Your wretched self
Reflected in the blood
Your unmade self
Emptied on the floor

Dragging out
Time keeps moving on

The world's not turning
The sky's gone dark
Nothing lives, only hates

Where you fall
Is where you lay
We're not who we were
We take, we cripple
In the mud the animals crawl

Your wretched self
Reflected in the blood
Your wretched self
Reflected in the blood

I know what we are

We are owner and owned
