Track Name: Bloody Vultures
Roaring pyre heights a blackened fume
Swaying to our breath like a serpent knows affection
A cracked veil on all who believe your freedom is now a subject of heresy

How dare you preach such scorn on different skin
It’s passed down through fear and inactive government
No sexuality should be questioned in election
Feed it to channel your rage and just journey on into the fire

Roaring pyre salts an open wound
Preying on itself like a serpent knows affection
A cracked veil to all who believe your freedom is now a chokehold on questioning


Cutting our throats
For the bait of bloody vultures
Bury our bones
Under laws of television
Smile
Hands on the wall
Fuck us right into submission
Eating our souls
Makes it ripe for the money

It never ends
This fear ..
It never ends

Perfume of a lost carnation
Will trail through the air
Littering soft memories of despair
Not trampled by its overwhelming structure

Could you put a price on us?
Would it match the price on every head?

BUY!
BUY!
BUY!
BUY!
BUY!
BUY!

Invest the noose.
Track Name: Ghost Promenade
Bow down to devolution
Deceive your ears to the sound of bloody cutthroat
Mould on discontent
With a bitter desire

Tear away
All the grieving layers of the truth
Break away
Disaster strikes the face of where it lives inside you
Take away
All the hanging children from the rafters
Clear away
The process drowning shallow faith till the flesh is sour

Freedom’s been overcome by fear

Wake up the ghost is spitting flowers

Bow down to de-evolution
Deceive your ears to the sound of bloody cutthroat
Mould on discontent
With a bitter desire

Forever known to be
Forever known to me
Forever known to be
Forever known to me

Deep inside a glimpse to seize collision

Wake up the ghost is spitting flowers

Bow down to de-evolution
Deceive your ears to the sound of bloody cutthroat
Mould on discontent
With a bitter desire

At least I know now who and what I am
At least I know now who and what I’ve become
At least I know now who and what I am
At least I know now who and what I’ve become
Track Name: Caruncula
Crawling down the hole
You feed it once more
Rolling out the bones
Her black feathers unfold

In a place they lay to rest
Capricorn
The wolves are running free
They’re running free

Karma shape shifting
Takes its crown
Upon her crest
Karma shape shifting
Suck the venom from her chest

Crawling down the hole
You’re fading once more
Calling out the code
Her black feathers turn gold

Karma shape shifting
Takes its crown
Upon her crest
Karma shape shifting
Suck the venom from her chest

If you want to live

Capricorn shadowing

Faithful and fearless soldier
Cast your kings to the mouth of demotion
Heavenly creature of fire
Spread your wings to the wolves of the ocean

Capricorn shadowing
With your weary sight
Follow me

Out of this hell and fall

Waiting on the other side
Hearing names until they’re mine
Intently knowing that It’s through

Black

Crawling down the hole
You feed it some more

You feed it

Karma shape shifting
Takes its crown
Upon her crest
Karma shape shifting
Suck the venom from her chest




6. Fallen Leaves

A bleeding fawn with no cry for ovation
Dyes the earth with her virginity
Echo’s crawl through the anticipation of saying goodnight
So we finally can dream.

Please forgive my heresy for dragging you down on your knees

The snake sings message of solace
As the earth draws close to her cheek
Echo’s crawl to the manipulation
Love cant save me now
All we know is supremacy.

Please forgive my heresy for dragging you down inside this sense of guilt I call my own.

The wind ushers fallen leafs along the path like an assembly of missing children, running as fast as they can home
The trees bend into conversation sharing harrowing secrets of murder, and spreading rumours of more to follow

Through rupture these gardens have grown
Reprieving my brace held straight through the hollows
Through rupture these gardens have grown
Relieving my faith by ending tomorrow.

Goddamn the seeds you’ve sewn
Overgrown to pin the young
It won’t matter in the end
In the garden we will run naked

Naked!
For everyone to see our scars
Naked!
To rid this flesh of all desire

Fallen leafs impound you to writhe through dirt of the infertile
Fallen leafs impound you
The glow will spark into inferno

Cross the list of all my failures
And I swear, as the day will come
These rotten hands won’t shake
Revenge will search this earth to find your eyes
Track Name: Fallen Leaves
A bleeding fawn with no cry for ovation
Dyes the earth with her virginity
Echo’s crawl through the anticipation of saying goodnight
So we finally can dream.

Please forgive my heresy for dragging you down on your knees

The snake sings message of solace
As the earth draws close to her cheek
Echo’s crawl to the manipulation
Love cant save me now
All we know is supremacy.

Please forgive my heresy for dragging you down inside this sense of guilt I call my own.

The wind ushers fallen leafs along the path like an assembly of missing children, running as fast as they can home
The trees bend into conversation sharing harrowing secrets of murder, and spreading rumours of more to follow

Through rupture these gardens have grown
Reprieving my brace held straight through the hollows
Through rupture these gardens have grown
Relieving my faith by ending tomorrow.

Goddamn the seeds you’ve sewn
Overgrown to pin the young
It won’t matter in the end
Track Name: Lichtenberg Figures
Open wide
Weary mother of ancients
Here unravelled
On our own again

Everlasting emancipated loveless hell
Constant craving of something else to fill this shell

Never free from the base of the willow
A stowaway between the legs of such heaven unjust
Chewing on her thighs as your grip to ascension

Collapse beneath a thousand fists
The legends on your back grow cold
Relapse until the final addiction buries you inside it whole
Never will it make an exception

Cast off the shadow of what’s internal

It won’t collapse on its own
It carries on

Collapse beneath the lips of a dying forest
Count back before we begin still fall apart
I thought I waited here oh for so long
Unravel into this motionless heart to start again
Track Name: Bleak Vanity
I had a dream I was dead in the sunshine
The dirt was warm but my body was cold
My eyes open frozen to the blue sky
The snake still singing as I lay told

I had a dream that all the feeling of the world left me
Prettiest I’ve ever seen you smiling on your own

This abandonment has left me inside a vacant shell

Awake to a replica impression of a take that that’ll never escape you

Tie both hands into believing
Those fairy tales are glamorised by years of pinned down decisions
Tie both hands into believing
Your principles are glamorised by years of bleak vanity

Bleeding out slow
The dream is now a replica
Aiding our tasteless cry
Carried to the unknown
Pulling down

The fallen pieces by my feet carried astray leaving only one
On my knees now I believe that I don’t need you to find myself
My prides amnesia that I’ve conceived to charm the ghost of forgotten love Hollow with silence I show my teeth there can only be one

Bleeding out slow
The dream is now a replica
Aiding our tasteless cry
Carried to the unknown
Pulling down

Tie both hands into believing
Track Name: Palisades Of Fire
Unforgiving as an empty hearted mother eats her young
Her breast still filled with miscreation
Unforgiving as a broken hearted mother eats her young
Regress, just sing your song awakening a red juggernaut

I am locust
Born of stardust

All hail our fathers in the sky such vision of a burning world
Submission grips valiant and the sick riding palisades of fire
A crimson thirst rising up from the dirt charting picturesque pre-sets

I am locust
Born of stardust

The crumbling earth beneath your feet
Face your conscience now and taste your freedoms defeat

We’re only acting as the leech for false salvation
We’re only living for an insight
Our only future has no aspiration
We’re only living for an insight
We’re only acting as the leech for false salvation
Track Name: So Below (Before We Disappear)
So below
Withdrawing glimmer of skyline
Carried away with dismay
Dragged through the undertow
The only measure of confidence
Judge me now
Their tears are left below a shallow weary haven

Their fingernails were left inside your crippled body
Beneath the skin a red imprint you fixed to catch them out

Emptiness I call you here
Are you crude enough to bare all your secrets in light in time before we disappear?

So below
Withdrawing glimmer of lifeline
The only measure of confidence
Carried away with dismay
Dragged through the undertow

Judgement will sleep inside you
Distance now a friend to carry me home

Would you wear the guilt?

Carry me home

Lay me to rest

Carry me home

This fear never ends
