Track Name: Natural Selection
Waist deep and sinking, keep your composure.
Just close your eyes soon it will be over.
Waist deep and sinking, keep your composure.
Just close your eyes it will all be over.

This world belongs to us. It was written in stone.
We carved our path with our blood and our bones.

Advocate fear, completely biased.
Captivated by this fallacy. A mistaken venture built on mistrust.

Prey on the weakest that you find. Prey on the most feeble of minds.

Could you watch everything you love burn? Could you cease to exist and the world still turn?
One day you will become the hunted. Tell me now is it what you wanted?
Tell me now, is it what you wanted?

One day you'll become the hunted. Tell me now is it what you wanted?

Waist deep and sinking, keep your composure.
Just close your eyes and soon it will all be over
Waist deep and sinking, keep your composure.
Just close your eyes this will all be over

Just hold on tightly, it'll be alright isn't that what you said?
This world cannot be dying. It's already fucking dead.
Track Name: Compliance
Now that I have betrayed everything I used to believe in.
Now that I have betrayed everything that I thought I used to believe.

Here I am trying to coincide with the thoughts that kill my mind.
You tried, you begged, you cried, and all to save me.
Pull me up from edge and from the black again, giving all that you had to a lost cause.

And I guess in the end it was just my decision.
I never thought I'd ruin this by my own volition.
Pick up the broken pieces, and clean up those incisions.
This is the life I chose, there's no more point of wishing.

How could you never turn your back on me?
I could see the skies, they'd bend before they'd break.

Watch your step, or you'll lose yourself.
Not the one, but the many just like everyone I know.
Gave it all and I had one hope, I'd give anything for you to just believe in me.
I'd give anything for you to believe in me.

I might as well blow my fucking brains out my head at least this way I'll forget every single word you said.
And i will know these words were hollow in dead, and I will never put my trust in you and be force fed.
Blow my fucking head off my shoulders to make it all end, for it to all be over.
Now because I see through the masks and the bullshit.
And I will never believe.

Now that I have betrayed everything I thought that I believed in.
Track Name: Filth Feeder
Let me entrance you. Give you what you have been searching for. I promised I'd give everything you wanted and more.

When that which is lethal is that which we fees on. Soon nothing will be left to kneel on.

Tired eyes, broken hands, and flesh that has turned black and blue. The realization no one's ever coming back for you.
(x2)

When that which is lethal is that which we feed on.

Dead words fall into deaf ears. Lies masquerading as certainty draining hope from the already hopeless. Draining hope from me. (x2)

Yea, its hard to see, impossible to breathe.
Easily deceived, too easily deceived.

Take these words as your gospel. This is a promise and not a plea. From this second forward, I will hate you unconditionally. (x2)
Track Name: Ninth Circle
We welcome you with sharp tongues and malicious intentions.

A backstabbing, egotistical, illusion of progress, I need to be rid of you.

My judgement was clouded by the feeling of nostalgia.

But those who behave like sheep will be fed to the wolves.

My, My judgement was so clouded by, by the feeling of nostal giaaaaaaaaaa.

Displace your promises disassemble the definition of honesty.
Inebriated with guilt, the look on your face says it all. (says it all)

I gave you my trust, my love. I gave you everything and you turn around and spit in my face

You will rot in the ninth circle with the rest of your kind.
You will rot in the ninth circle with the rest of your kind.

All the pain and all of the suffering.
Was it worth your lies?
Was it worth all of your deceit?

We welcome you with sharp tongues and malicious intentions.

A backstabbing, egotistical, illusion of progress, I wish to be rid of you.

My judgement was so clouded by the feeling of nostalgia.

But those who behave like sheep will be fed to the wolves.
Track Name: Tie It Tightly
Tie it tightly, you don't want it to slip.
Embrace your situation now and don't be frightened by it.

Fuck all your family and so called friends that were never there for you, not even in the end.
No one can hear your prayers, because no one has ever fucking cared about you.

One less human life, one less greedy soul. This is our future now. This is our population control.
Track Name: Gather
Let me pose a question. If you never existed,
how many lives would've never been destroyed?
Let me pose a question. If you never existed,
how many lives would've never been destroyed?

I wish to take back my existence. To terminate all that I am and all i could be.
I am dissolving. Sinking back into what I thought I'd never become again.

I've been stuck in the dark. Unknowing, just hoping.
Looking for my true being.
I've been stuck in the dark. Unknowing, just hoping.
All I found was a disappointment looking back at me.

I held the weight of the world on my shoulders.
And gave up, when I let hatred take over.
There is nothing left for me here. There is nothing left for me.

I held the weight of the world on my shoulders.
And gave up, when I let hatred take over.
There is nothing left for me here.
There is nothing left for me here.

I've been stuck in the dark. Unknowing, just hoping.
Looking for my true being.
I've been stuck in the dark. Unknowing, just hoping.
All I found was a disappointment looking back at me.

You don't know the struggle.
Positivity infects the human mind.

Positivity infects the human mind.
Optimism over time will make you blind.
(you don't know the struggle)


All I found was a disappointment, looking back at me.
Track Name: Comfort
I have this madness
I've been unable to shake. These years asleep and never wanting to wake.

My mind is extorting my soul for control of this rotting shell. This fucking hell.
(x2)

And on these hopeless nights these lifeless eyes hide what's left inside.

And on these hopeless nights, living here as a fucking disgrace with the heart of a god but a tongue of a snake.

And I will take everything from you.

Never content with what I have, the constant weight of regret .
How can I overcome an enemy that's inside my head?
(x2)

Maybe I'm just born to lose. (never content with what I have)

Maybe I'm just born to lose. (that constant weight of regret)

Maybe I'm just born to lose.
Maybe I'm just born to lose.

Self defeating, self depreciating.
And I would gladly sell my soul.

Why am I here, why do I try? I'd gladly sell my soul if I could fucking die.
Why am I here, why do I try?
