Track Name: Care for a Rat in the Face?
Light a candle but keep it a secret
Forever watching to keep us close at hand
Text a bible give us our daily bread
Lack our interest of knowledge we may have

Chorus:
Care for a rat in the face?
You’ll see it my way, my way, my

Dog dyslectic foreign traits the same
Can’t economize the risks we take
Atmospheric death by fuels we trade
While burning dollars on violent games we play

Techno heartbeat but bugles sound the same
No time for taps or gunshots in my space
Save us all with activism’s plans
But writing on our walls content as slaves

Chorus
Track Name: Under the Gun
Not sorry I’m not more like you
Cause being crazy is just what I do
A well adjusted wreck of a man
I wouldn’t expect you to understand

Chorus:
This one last time
Then I swear I’m done
This one last time
I put myself under the gun

I may be a sinner but you’re no saint
And now I see they’re one and the same
They police and love to condescend
Commit the crime then do it again

Chorus

I see you watching and itching to speak
It’s like a game or a weekend retreat
And you can laugh and criticize
But in the end that won’t be wise

So light it up and tell another joke
I’ve seen too many years go up in smoke
The hacks and talkers form an endless line
So take precaution heed the warning signs

Chorus

Under the Gun
Track Name: Caveman Angry
A E Ah
A E Ah O Oo Ah
Eat Fuck Kill

Made in the image of man
Made not to understand

Eat. Fuck. Kill.
Track Name: Next to Never
Every day is a dime
But we’re burning dollars
Like to tell you we know where it goes
But we don’t
As we struggle to find
The meaning of that song
We all know

Like a broken record playing
On and on and on

Chorus:
Broke another dam and washed away
Ten years of hell a hard price to pay
Strangled by the vines that grow with age
Did I learn to late?

What you hope to find
Do you even know?
If it led you by the hand
Would you go?
Down that path of gold

Like a broken record playing
Over and over again

Chorus

Next to never is where you’ll find the luck that never comes
Falling through the cracks of a dying womb
A blackened heart of the bastard son without a will to choose
Whatever the cost take the risk and follow through

Knot of time is the social dust of an ancient ruin
Climbing out of a robot’s thoughtless tomb
The beaten one of a machine shop without a will to choose
Talking heads on the hands of a dead man’s news

Chorus
Track Name: Lifeblood
Naked in front of you unable to pretend
It’s time you found out just exactly who I am
A disillusioned waste of everybody’s time
A growing bitter taste behind the valentine

Chorus:
Life blood
Running empty for some
Life blood
Run unlucky for some

I put the blame on you but never on myself
And every tongue is twisting, tearing through my health
The walking ashes emerge from this weathered flame
It should have been a thing I killed but tried to save

Chorus

Sick beyond repair
Despair in my underwear

78769
Track Name: Worm Hill
Streets lean and cold in the town of Sunderland
Something is waiting outside
An abject object perhaps a biogenesis
Penshaw’s eyes open wide

Chorus:
Worm Hill imprint the mind
With time to wonder why

Creep down the stairs in the dark of abstinence
Someone is waiting online
A welcome permit perhaps a pledge of innocence
A sacrificial suicide

Chorus
Worm Hill the perfect home
Your place to die alone

Chorus
Track Name: Silent Lantern
That silent lantern
Lights the path unknown
Outside my window
I see them down below

That silent lantern
Lights the way back home
Outside my window
I see them come and go

Am I lost too far
Where it’s all a lie
I’ll never long to care
Till the day I die

The day I die
