Track Name: Entombed Inside Your Brain
There is no absolute
Nostalgic failure, who are you?
Pack animal, mouth breathing fool
I am the wolf among you

Chain your demons beneath the floorboards
Don't let them out, ego never tells the man he's wrong

Burrowed in your skull I am the guilt you cannot shake
Feasting from the inside out, devouring your brain

I am leering - biding my time
Patiently peering out through your eyes

I am sick and I am diseased
I am rabid but I am your king
Entombed inside your brain

I wish I could see the look of horror on your face
When you come to realize you and I are one in the same
Try to cleanse yourself of all the filthiness and shame
You can change the image but you can't shake the name

I am leering - biding my time
Patiently peering out through your eyes

Poor boy, you're desperate
Reclamation has its price to pay
You can pretend that your nose is clean
But you won't ever forget me
Track Name: Machine
There's that ringing - it's time to face the day
Alarm clock singing - it's time to pay my way
I am just a number - nothing but a wage
And every day I wake up - nothing seems to change

Punch in, punch out, life's a monotonous roundabout
Tax this, tax that, keep their corporate wallets fat
Sell yourself off for that wage
Just to finance your own grave

My blood - worth nothing
My sweat - worth nothing
My time - worth nothing
My life - worth nothing

So how did we end up here?
Mindless machines controlled by fear
We're waiting for that cheque to cash
Or for the system to collapse

I have contempt for the suit and tie
I have hatred for the 9 to 5
I am struggling just to make a dime
I am sick and tired of always asking why I never have the fucking time

Will I ever be more than a rental?
Will I ever be anything at all?
Track Name: Sodomy By Chainsaw
You belligerent mother fucker, this time you've gone too far
I'll skin you then bleed you, expose you for what you are
Let's see you walk like the man you claim to be
You're not a man, you're a bitch weak in the knees

Coward be thy name; heed the drums of war
While I sharpen the blade; sodomy by chainsaw

You have never seen hatred quite like this
Step up to the blade, give it a look

With my hands gripped tight around your throat
I'll squeeze the life out through your mouth
Then rip this blade right through your bones
No remorse

You heed the drums of war while I sharpen the blade
Sodomy by chainsaw

You have never begged mercy like this
Step up to the blade, give it a look
And die by my hand
Track Name: Thy Divine Convalescence
Your lost then found way of life serves me no warrant thus far
And in this twisted mind, I'm bent and fucked and separated
I'm forsaken forever more
Your wretched mistaken of thee brings me loss of my faith and belief in this world
Yeah you have brought this upon yourself
So why can't I break free from this broken empty shell that I have inside of me
No I don't know what the fuck I've created but it's come to swallow me whole
I've had enough and I'm giving up now so
I can't take it anymore
This entropic whore called life has taken me for a ride
And I, yeah I can see it within myself so don't your petty ass preach to me
For you should live with what you've wished for and I will learn to be

Yeah you have brought this upon yourself
So don't your petty ass preach to me
For you should live with what you've wished for
And I will learn to heal

Severed from my body, my devoured soul
Lost are the days I held you so dear
Exploring the night to find the divinity I desire
Track Name: Your Time Has Expired
Taken alive - this world is eating you from the inside
It's always woah is you
How can you walk in here and look me in the eye
Demanding only truth, then turn around and lie

You're not a victim
Self-righteous piece of shit
Why don't you hold your tongue, then fucking swallow​​​​ it

It's so pathetic - I know what you are
I won't forget it - for you they lower the bar
You fucking heathen, with your belly to the ground
I'll cut you ear to ear, you never will be found
Wash my hands clean from the mess you've made
I hear you whine, it only fuels my rage
Give it time, your blood will fade away
Then you'll be but a bad memory

Your time will expire
You're everything I'll never be
Your time will expire
A dismal symbol of a human being

Knife twisting, blood upon your face
Uplifting you will leave this place
In pieces you deserve your fate
No remorse for the life I take
Saw ripping through your skin and bone
Devouring, I hear you moan
"Please kill me", all I need to hear
For now you've succumbed to fear

Your time will expire
You're everything I'll never be
Your time will expire
A dismal symbol of a human being
Track Name: In My Grasp
My demons have fled
No it ain't no sad story
And though they've tried
Tried to kill me slowly
I'm still here to persevere
And take what's mine
And nothing will tell me otherwise anymore

No not anymore

One more rep, one step, don't take it in vain
Just step to that plate, get your feet back on the ground
And thrive
Track Name: All I Have Left
All hope absolved
Licking my wounds
Abandoned I sit
Feeling hollow and worthless
Searching for something
To numb out the throes
Yearning for darkness
So I can wallow alone

Self degradation, filling a void
It's so damn easy to grit my teeth and smile
Never was one for the bright side of things
But this life's not what I dreamed
This self imposed exile must come to an end
All that is left is for me to give in

All that I have is all that I know
You see only what I show

Backwards I crawl
Away from the light
Unnerving torment
Keeps me from sight
Yearning for solace
Has untethered me
Seeding the idea
Has set me free

Regeneration, finding a home
It's too damn easy to grit my teeth and smile
Never was one for the bright side of things
But this life's not what I dreamed
This self imposed exile must come to an end
All that is left is for me to give in

All that I have is all that I know
You see only what I show
All that I have is what's meant to be
All I have left has been torn from me

I wandered through the black only to find no answers
Lost in a search of self, this compass points to nowhere
I haven't slept in days, my own reflection shutters
Lost all self control, I need you more than ever before

And when I stood up tall, these old foundations crumbled
I sunk well below and settled in the wreckage
You offered me your hand and pulled me to the surface
Gave me your purest self, I gurgled out never let go

Let go
