Track Name: Terrifinni
"Can you keep your fucking mouth shut?"
The Hooks haven't dug deep just yet.
Don't tell me, don't tell me,
I know my words mean everything

"Your narcissism will bleed itself to a hollow end,
But it seems you're quite content with your Apathy."
I see myself, I know I'm like everyone else
With this consistent little itch, to bitch and moan.

Angel face,
Dress yourself up for the world to see.

"Where is the power?
I hear your voice is shattered"
Chew glass,
You know I'm not there yet.

"I can here it in your vocal quiver."
I can't help but quake and shiver.
"Fight your silence, stand, deliver,
Or paint with grey to fill the picture."

Angel face,
Dress yourself up for the world to see.
Paint your face.
They paid to see a Frown.

Blackened Eyes,
Point your face to the ground.
Hide Your Eyes,
They can't see the walls are slowly falling down.
Blackened Eyes,
Put your fist to the ground.
Hollow Eyes,
You need approval and the curtain's coming down.

Angel face,
Dress yourself up for the world to see.
Paint your face.
They paid to see a Frown.
Track Name: Sacred Heart
I know we all we die alone someday, it's just the way it is.
How can I stand? I can't live without a place to lay my head.
Misguided plans, I'm suffocating in my judgment
While choking down the consequence.
Misbalance options that I forced into my hands.

I'll let go of everything I've learned to be.
I'm living carelessly.

Sink heart, Sink.
Ignoring guilt and any pain you bring.
Pretend to feel. Pretend to care.
Run away from all that makes you scared.
Think nothing of feeling. Think nothing of others.
Stay sheltered in Entropy.

I'll let go of everything I've learned to be.
I'm living carelessly.
I have to live a different way.
I know I won't adapt.

This weight that's buried in my chest
Has got my shallow heart caught between what I want and what I need.
The truth is drowning me.

I know we die alone. We all will die alone.
Track Name: Sixth Seal
I've been acting out my role for you.
I did all the things your Books told me to.

So I've been looking to the Sky for direction.
And I've been waiting for the Water to open up for me.
Now on the banks I Grieve.

Where did you go?
Stole my Ribs and you left me Alone.

My mother prays I go to Heaven when I'm dead,
After I shut the Book and all the fiction ends.

So can I get to Heaven if I know it isn't real?
And if I beg your God for death will I have to feel
All this Pain, all this Doubt?
Peter met me at the gates - I'm locked out.

Where did you go?
I burned your bridge on my body so long ago.

You kissed me to seal my fate Alone.
You kissed me - it's a black mark on my soul.
Track Name: I Love(d) You Easily
Take in, take everything that I've said.
There's no, there's nothing permanent.
I left you in a Tomb of my Absence.
Lit a match and I walked away to bury myself in Decay.

I forget to forget you.

Tear out, tear every tooth out of my head.
Silence, your silence is deafening.
Haunted by ghosts of my every misgiving.
Now I will beg you to hang me like the shoes outside your window.
A new Line to bear my weight.

I forget to forget you.

Lie to save ourselves from Fear.
Can't fight what fate has left for us, dear.
Won't piece back a broken glass.
Our lives are fading photographs.
Decay until there's nothing left.

I forget to forget you.
Track Name: To Rage Against the Living
All my friends are Dying.
I think they dream of Death.
They've been sleeping alone in each other's beds.
No, they won't hear me crying.
They'll keep watching for the break.
I call my sinful saviors - keep the bad thoughts Away.

I've got dreams of Dying.
I'm not holding out for more.
I know I'm not deserving, I'll sleep on the floor.
There's no more chasing comfort.
I'll take what I can get,
Because I am still a child who's drowning in bed.

Rate and Time to Emptiness.
It's just another State.
Replace the space with Little Death.
Feel Fulfillment gouged away.

Displacing every part of me to steal their Rotten Energy.
Displacing every part of me, these seven years are killing me.
Track Name: Treading Heavily
So if you find It, I'd like to know.
Oh, Simulacrum of Myself, I'm smallest when I yell.
And if I lost It, I'd like to know.
Assimilation into everything that I am.

What will wave back to our Constant Craving?
Immortal itch for a place infinite.
Another message to an Absent God.
Hidden out in every galaxy beyond.

So if you find It, I'd like to know.
Oh, Simulacrum of Myself, I'm smallest when I yell.
And if I lost It, I'd like to know.
Assimilation into everything that I am.

Treading lightly through Unknown.
Treading heavily to be Lost Eternally.
Track Name: Gospel Of
Life, living is a Rapture.
Every minute moving faster.
The Seventh Seal is open wide.

So I'm counting Clocks like Scripture.

The Gospel Of Time
That reigns Above.
It's the only Higher Power we all must Love.

Shine, I've been dialing back the sun now.
Renouncing every shadow.
A Mortal Sin inherited.

I watch Clocks like Scripture.

The Holy Book of Time.
Dropping sands omniscient
At the alter of The Digit.
Matthew, Mark, and The Dawn.

Time, that reigns Above.
It's the only Higher Power we all must love.

Time is God.
God is Time.
Time is God.

Time, that reigns Above.
It's the only Higher Power we all must love.
Time, that Reigns Supreme.
Carry Crosses on our wrists to be redeemed.

Then we fade Unseen.
Track Name: Pale Blue (My Planetary Home)
We lost a light in stark Innocence.
Sang for God, got Lost in Time.
Withered bones, another Planetary Home,
A mirrored life in the Stars.

We found The Dark in the back of our heads.
Prayed for Sun, and got swallowed whole.
Empty souls passing by in Time.

In Every Man, a Constellation Dies.

We're lost - Pale Blue in a sea of Black.
We're lost - Pale Blue lost in Black.
Track Name: Whittle
All we know is another end or another Fix for the living Dead.
With every breath so Infinite, another blink and We Don't Exist.
It's like grasping water with broken hands.
We take stock in these grains of sand.
We get carried away - we're carried away with the Tide.

We found God in our Apathy.
Too tied up for another dream.
Got complacent and too Self-Involved,
Our sights are set on Oblivion.
We're consumed with our little gifts,
They distract from the Nothingness.
All our years are just rounding down.
We drift along in Eternal Doubt.

We keep swimming in Inertia.
We love dancing in the Doldrums.
Bought our stock in Serotonin (SERT +19.8%),
We tried to build a New Heaven.
Now bereft of any meaning,
Can't stifle all of the screaming.
Until we enter The Void,
The Void keeps shouting back.

We found God in our Apathy.
Too tied up for another dream.
Got complacent and too Self-Involved,
Our sights are set on Oblivion.
We're consumed with our little gifts,
They distract from the Nothingness.
All our years are just rounding down.
We drift along in Eternal Doubt.

It's so beautiful.
We'll figure it out.
It's so infinite.
Then we don't exist.
So magical.
All hypothetical.
That God's Crying Clown's have lost their way.

We found God in our Apathy.
Too tied up for another dream.
Got complacent and too Self-Involved,
Our sights are set on Oblivion.
We're consumed with our little gifts,
They distract from the Nothingness.
All our years are just rounding down.
We drift along in Eternal Doubt.
Track Name: is The End of the World
Pascal's Wager taught me to love God out of Fear. Not to believe - but to bet my life, invest my time - in a chance at glory for Glory's sake.

Father Chris taught me to believe in Pascal because God wouldn't cut it for me. He taught me my life and my humanity was a gamble. That I held the chips and Christ was the dealer.

God taught me that I was Alone. That if He was real, He would guide me, unflinching, toward Oblivion. His Wrath would be felt. With the mortal sin of existence, He marked me for Hell.

And I am in Hell. And I am God. I am Christ.

I will bow at my alter. I am my only savior.

I am God.
I am God.
I am.
God.
Track Name: To Rage Against Finality
I'm starting to see Fulfillment couldn't fill me,
And I don't believe I'll make it out alive.

I stuck it out through the second round.
I filled myself in a room devoid of Sound.
I took a stab at The Underground.
Don't wanna drag it out,
I took a step into entropy.
Found stasis in dependency.
Another sullen search for complacency.

I'm starting to see Fulfillment couldn't fill me,
And I don't believe I'll make it out alive.
But I gotta play my tape out, and find a way to read my Book aloud.
Because I've been running with my head down, and I've been tripping up.

I found the answer to my prayers there
In a Baby Blue Box and a Father's Stare.
A hall filled with Absence.
I took a step back.
I found God in a Presence.
I burned the Earth on down to heaven.
Because I know that I know better.
I know it's All We've Got.

If God is Love, it's okay.
They couldn't save me anyway.
If God is Love, it's okay.
I left them both behind anyway.

I'm starting to see...
