Track Name: Serotonin
I can smell you approaching the door
your scent so disgusting yet so beautiful
you are a walking disease
a waste of creation but mean everything to me
I'll wear your pelvis as a crown
for we are the kings of filth

(lyrics by Ben Bosveld and Michael Minard)
Track Name: I Am The Drought I Am The Flood
i waited there for you
at the bottom of the lake
between darkest nights and shortest days

We dwell
at the deepest depths
and feed on the leaves in the bottom of the lakebed.

Bodies litter the streets and clog the streams.

i am the drought, i am the flood
i am the plague duplicating in your blood
i am the gun held to your head
i am loneliness you feel on your deathbed

is god just a guy up in the sky
waiting to decide
if we should burn or if we should fly
thank god for disease and sin
dont blame the devil because god made him
he does exactly what god designed him to do

i am the drought, i am the flood


(lyrics by Alex Baumann)
Track Name: The Dead Sea Strolls
our sickened love will overflow the banks
engulfing the city
drowning them in their midst
our sickened love will overflow the banks
engulfing the city

we left our hearts to the whores
and woke up in graves
we closed eyes next to lovers that left us to drown

a symphony of broken bones will lay us to rest
god put us to the test
but left us to rot

death she sails like a storm
plagues spread
ongoing wars
death she rides the storm
rusty rivers of unborn

we set our sails under bleak skies
we will be phantoms of the sea

our sickened love will overflow the banks
engulfing the city
drowning them in their midst

broken teeth form the roads
desperation paints the lines
all the love has been fucked away
the love's been fucked away

a symphony of broken bones will lay us to rest
god put us to the test
but left us to rot

all the love has been fucked away
in this lust we rust
the currents drag us to our graves

(lyrics by Alex Baumann)
Track Name: Off Like A Prom Dress
run away, dont run away
be afraid, dont be afraid
run away run away

i cant seem to forget
the corpse you hid beneath the floor boards
run away run away

and i'll never forget what you did you fucking bitch

infected with this emotional parasite
feeding like a leech
she always keeps sucking me dry

no ground beneath my feet
now i am forced to see
the cancer you breathed into me

run away, dont run away
be afraid, dont be afraid
run away run away

*all that you did
with every word you spread
intention suspense
are we dirty or are we rinsed
cuz i feel the toll
our souls they are whole
and i cant wait to die asleep
for in the end we're beyond thee*

every lie you have forced me to fucking believe
we are nothing
everytime we touch makes me relive the misery
now you will feel my wrath it will be nothing you could
ever imagine

(lyrics by Ben Bosveld and * by Alan Jackson)
Track Name: Apotheosis
i can feel it in my spirit
in my veins
the flesh im in is changing
everything that i have become is what i never expected
a blinding light overflows within
suffocating the man i once was
i know this is wrong but it feels so right
i know this is wrong but it feels so right
i can see the other side of the world when i close my eyes
i can see the other side of the world when i close my eyes
i know this is wrong but it feels so right
i know this is wrong but it feels so right
i know this is wrong but it feels so right
i know this is wrong but it feels so right


i was born at the bottom of the sea
still i rise to the highest peak
always ascending
but i can never
breathe

im welcoming oblivion with open arms
i want your burden on my back
i want to remove your chains
i want to free the world
i want to rip you in half
i want your burden on my back
i want your burden on my back

father
the sun is dying
and unholy ghosts roam the earth

the heavens tremble at my feet
from the smallest insect to the greatest beast
all of the stars
the skies and seas
light and the darkness i will delete
alpha omega eternity

im welcoming oblivion with open arms
i want your burden on my back
i want to remove your chains
i want to free the world
i want to rip you in half
i want your burden on my back

(lyrics by Alex Baumann)
Track Name: A Devil Like Gravity
i have found you to be my down fall

a devil like gravity
through him all things fall
devil like gravity

I am light, i am wrath
I am light, i am wrath

spirits will sink like ocean liners
proverbs will become the peaks we climb

my eyes fail waiting for your promise
my eyes fail watching for your promise
my eyes fail waiting for your promise

(lyrics by Alex Baumann)
Track Name: Dreamcrusher
laid to waste by this life
fuck the world
tonight i am letting go
i renounce everything that i once loved
i am letting go
i wont be twice betrayed
i am letting go
i am letting go

the divine was divinely hammered when he made you
drunk from the wine during your design

memories like monarchs flying over train tracks
at some point we are bound to be hit by freight trains
hope has jumped off of the fucking bridge
like all of your stupid friends should have did

the divine was divinely hammered when he made you
drunk from the wine during your design

when people say that nothing is impossible
their fucking lying

live bleed live bleed
live breed live breed
death greed death greed

laid to waste by this life
fuck everything

(lyrics by Alex Baumann)
