Track Name: Vultures
A casket lined with manuscript
Our art is dead
Words used so casually
Become the casualty
And if this wasn’t already a cliche
Autopilot is engaged
We must write something really very brutal
Yeah, it’s all the rage

What makes you think I’m deaf?

To read the words you scream to me
Erases any conviction
When Daddy says you’ve got a record deal
Your words are all contradictions
Your images you use are regurgitated
Like a vulture feeding it's young
From the carcass of a dead horse
That you’ve all been flogging too long

Fuck your attempts to be clever and poetic
The Cheeky Girls do it better than you
Put down your tools and choose your weapon
This is lyrical armageddon
Track Name: The Embrace
It's a shallow resolve
That creates only nothing
In the place
Where you once stood

The embrace of that cord
Isn't as warm as these arms
I can promise you
That it won't save you from harm

How can you still stand with such pride
As though you can take it all in your stride

Don't try to fall from the ceiling
Your neck won't hold you alone

I promised that I'd do all I could for you
But when it all went wrong you never understood
Now I am only one man, and I can live for myself
But to you life is a commodity for which the trade off is death
And you relied on us to make it worth while
While our worth lost it's value as you ensured we would fail
And the only thanks we ever got
Was a glass half drunk and empty pill pot

The embrace of that cord
Isn't as warm as these arms
I can promise you
That it won't save you from harm
Track Name: Wars With
Just a ghost of a memory
But it still haunts me

Our names were just words on the page
All evidence erased
The end comes quicker than the start
And for it I'm glad

Nothing comes without a cost
Not even the ones we love
And so we're all familiar with loss
Yeah, we're all familiar with loss
Life should not carry a price
As we come and we go with nothing
It should have been a gift
Not a river filled with shit

No I'm not that weak
I'll stand on my own two feet
Fortunes have turned to me
Look at this I'm breaking free

I'm the only thing that's changed

I'm always finding myself
Reliving the worst of it

We try to mask the problems
But the only ones we're fooling
Is ourselves
Caught up in all the traps
And unable to cut loose
From our wars with each other
To each war with ourselves
The ceasefire didn't work
You don't deserve to walk this earth
Breaking all the written rules
I'll make a home for you
In the dirt
Track Name: Meat Parade
Welcome to the meat parade
Where the hungry come to feast
On a cavalcade of drunken flesh
Like a carnal midnight beast
They arrive like lambs to the slaughter
And dignity swiftly dies
It’s throat cut in a depraved dance
That twists and shakes and lies

Play the hand you hold
In a bid to raise your score
Such is the libertine’s game
For the prize that lasts a night
Or maybe this one will remain
An accolade from inside her thighs
The type you cannot see
One that might sterilize

You're such a state
You should take a look at yourself

Darling, what’s your name? she said
It doesn't matter to you
She proclaimed "I'm only living in the moment"
Instead, she lived her life on her back
We were only filling a hole
With the hole of someone else

Welcome to the meat parade
Where the hungry come to feast
On a cavalcade of drunken flesh
Like a carnal midnight beast
They arrive like lambs to the slaughter
And dignity swiftly dies
It’s throat cut in a depraved dance
That twists and shakes and lies

Everyone is welcome here
So eat whilst the feast is flowing
We wouldn't want you to starve
Even the offal still tastes sweet
But go on, ask yourself
Is this really what you want?
If you're faking one thing
Are you faking everything else?
Track Name: An Irrevocable Sense Ov Repulsion
To my eyes you're different
An ever changing face
Or am I just blind?

I cant bring myself to justify
Living in it's shadow

Choke on all my words
The morning tries
To strangle me
Countless times I gag
On what I see
I need to breath

She doesn't believe
No, she won't believe
That it could be her
There has to be someone else
But what she needs to know
Is never what she wants to hear

It’s my own inhibitions that have led to this
Difficult impositions that I should dismiss
But instead the nagging guilt keeps my hands tied
And the hope we could coexist still alive
But I’ve led you on
I’ve led you on
I’m a liar
I’m a liar

I don’t want this argument to end
I’ll keep it simmering along
Until one of us boils over
And scalds the delicate skin
It’s a scar that will never heal
Because it’s such a pleasure to pick

Uncomfortable isn't the word
More like
I feel fucking
Sick
Track Name: A Week Away
Looking back
To that fatal crash
The pain grows
More than I'd ever known

The train home
Never arrives
It crashes
Into the ground
Thrown from their seats
Debris flies
Through the window
Into their faces

Hoping that
Pane of glass
Protects them
From this being their last

Carriages
Severed open
Killing
Through neglect
Seventeen seconds
Changed our world
I was just
Oblivious

How was I supposed to know?

A week away he’d tell me
In ten more years
From leaving
Us all
