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.

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

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

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

Bleak Vanity 04:23
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

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

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
