Track Name: Tooth and Nail
1. Tooth and nail
Take steps forward only to retract,
Strangled in my attempt to escape this trap
No care to awake from a long nights sleep,
In my mind, I've lost all peace.

Face yourself after years of work and toil
Realize that life isn't what you thought it would be
Long to be at rest, buried underneath the soil.

Can't look on the bright side when your face down in the dirt
Thankless human being with no self worth.
Hateful and prone to spite, I'm a threat to myself
Isolated from the world, I put my loved ones on a shelf

Face yourself after years of work and toil
Realize that life isn't what you thought it would be
Long to be at rest, buried underneath the soil.

My corpse lies in the dirt, worms feast on broken hopes.
Reaching up, muddy earth, My bones fail to feel the sun.

I see and I hear them speak but I can't make out their words,
I'll be six feet under before I can rest assure
That I'll be free of hopelessness.
Unconvinced, my fingers burn,
Miserable and tired, mind overworked

Cast aside, I peer from the depths.

Cast aside, I peer from the depths, seething with hate in spite of neglect
With envy, I see those around me progress
Stressing myself while the world's at rest.
Cursing myself, I'll never learn
Killing myself to live free of scorn
In my greatest attempts I always fail
Sick of fighting tooth and nail

Tooth and Nail
Track Name: Crippled
2.Crippled
Run circles around my head
Life lost, hopes crushed , dwell in regret
Stuck to the floor day after day
Face down in past mistakes
Searching for a way to gain some clarity
Nothing seems real to me
Crippled by fear
Suffer my life without you here.
Reaching out for those better days,
But the clock spits hours in my fucking face
Crippled by fear, Misery takes its toll
Left with the ache of a dying soul.
My heart burns a thousand pyres
Those who've sown in tears shall reap in joy
Yet the harvest produces constant lies,
Promises of tomorrow fail to come to light.
Wrapping me in unyielding pain and frustration,
these promises fail to come to fruition.

Closed my eyes to your truth
You numbed yourself to the world,
your life unfurled.
You were dying inside, gasping for air
As you floated away with the tides of despair.
Try to tell me there's life after death?
Then put the gun to my fucking head
Bullshit scriptures give me no desire.
My heart burns a thousand pyres
Track Name: Worn
3.Worn
Your forever came to an end
In my world you are as good as dead
You ripped the heart from my chest
I mend the caverns you callously left
Pick our memories like a scab,
they keep coming back.
Tear at my soul until there's nothing left.
We are a broken dream
Worn out by time
We came apart at the seams
The sun doesn't rise in my eyes,
devoid of hope.
All that's left is the hell
In which I roam
You were a staple, an anchor end
I was wrong, you're not heaven sent.
You're cold
Your cold embrace keeps me up at night
If I had the words to wash away the lies,
I would crush them into your eyes
Wish I could hurt, to feel the blood in my veins
Tried to find those words, silence remains.
Your beauty, captured in still frame.
Helpless, I'll fall victim once again.
Track Name: Deceiver II
4.Deceiver II
The first to throw stones
You drown in reproach
Reaching for your fucking throne

Sliver lining philosophies of how this world should be
Mean everything to you, but it's all bullshit to me.
(Realize) Man hangs himself by political ties,
Choking, dying
kicking off the backs of damaged lives

Swimming In lies,
Spew your rhetoric to justify years of genocide

Sliver lining philosophies of how this world should be
Mean everything to you, but it's all bullshit to me.
(Realize) Man hangs himself by political ties,
Choking, dying
kicking off the backs of damaged lives

Damaged Lives,

Steal from the public, You fucking thief, brainwash society with your
extremist beliefs
Is it hard to breathe with your head in the clouds?
I want to be the one to choke the ignorant words from your crooked mouth.

Spineless men in suit and tie
Perception is deception,
I see though their lies
Cut out our eyes, so we can't see
The voiceless suffer, no means to speak
They'll do anything to stay afloat,
Packaged hate crammed down our throats
I can't breath
And with my final breath,
I denounce their deceit.
