Track Name: Born Dead
I never wanted to be a part of this shit
We were all put here without an idea of purpose

We're all dead
We're born dead

You were not granted life you have to fucking earn it
til then you're mindless you're brainless your head is vacant
If we don't seek purpose it isn't worth it to live
We can't snap from these tasks long enough to understand

You force your life cause a pin on a map told you to
Fuck that you're cognitive you the one who gets to choose
Your purpose is yours it's all that you've got
If you give it up you can go fucking rot
Track Name: One Time
Fuck your idle mind
I'll leave you in the cave
Where your thoughts died

I'm so fucking sick of this shit
I don't wanna be involved with you, bitch
You are the bane of my existence
Don't expect to hear from me again

I'll sever the tounge
Of the serpent you've become
I can't get along
With a black sheep caught ablaze

I won't say a word, even in death
You are the reason I am so vexed
Track Name: Flies
You left me to die, without compromise
A corpse that's left alive only on the outside
Beneath, I'm a void. Only absence and flies
I filled it with poison just to kill my mind

I exhale your name from this toxic abyss
It echoes through empty heads who don't get it
I carry you with me, in every step
The weight of regret will ruin my head

I still feel you within every breath
I will trip over every fucking step

I felt my flesh decay, since you've gone away
The only small remains are my past mistakes
I'll do all that it takes, to bury this stake
I've gottta kill the pain so dig my fucking grave

I will bleach the bones of this skeleton
I need to wipe them free of all this obsession
Even when it's gone, I want you to know
My blackened soul won't ever find a new home

Why can't you be alive with me
Not just a dead memory
Track Name: Daggers
I've got daggers in my eyes

I've got daggers in my eyes I bleed them every night
You will never understand how it feels inside
I tried to trade this hell you made but I think it's where I'll die
I don't wanna see your face so I'm gouging out my eyes

Take my sight and scratch it out
Track Name: Waters
Thank god for the waters

Drink more water
Take more sips

I fuck with the water
Waters more important than the gold
My piss never been so clear
People sell they souls for the gold, man fuck that

Thank god
