Track Name: Back in The Hole
back in the hole
guess i'll stay here for a while
where it all began
when my habits got wild
thought it was just a joke
couldn't help myself
it all felt good
so I'd help myself

keep giving me hell
but I do it anyway
someone gets too close
so I spit it in their face
I'm better off alone
I spit it in their face
I'm better off alone
so I throw it away

back in the hole

excessive depressive
watch me talk some shit
that I can't back up
because the shoe don't fit
who is really who and what is what
I can turn my back
you can call my bluff

mundane static
that you can tune out
a blur between the lines
when I open my mouth
I'm at my lowest point
I'm a lethal mix
burning holes in the social fabric

back in the hole
Track Name: Fragment
took acid and went to heaven
where pain and pleasure unite
deleted like a program
and the memory wiped
past and present and future
burn away
no tragic loss
in a paradise where nothing
is nothing
and the mind
ain't on or off

no trace left past the apex
a blip on the cosmic train wreck

control and power
don't interest me
only name tags
pointless things

no function I'm an error
corrupted data base
burdened by existence
feel no love I feel no hate
past and present and future
burn away
no tragic loss
in a paradise where nothing
is nothing
and life
doesn't start or stop

f r a g m e n t

control and power
don't interest me
only name tags
pointless things
Track Name: Life's Joy
the leash the collar the bond
stolen from me life's joy
lovers smile and friends smile
amidst it all I disappear
my forgotten name
the leash the collar the bond
strangled
lovers laugh
jealous
weak
and disgusting
they laugh at me
I can not be myself
scrutinized
and damned
black raven
hideous diseased bird
my bond grows
to the leash
the collar
a time when I did not exist
I yearn
and I desire
I touch myself
thinking of a time before the curse of life
Track Name: Meditation
step through a magnifying glass
push through a web of lies
I saw myself for who I am
and I hated what I saw
secret gate
true world
decay
dwindle
I'm a coward
afraid to find happiness
after I saw myself
dwindle
a web of lies
desperate echo
undetected
dug a tunnel
detached
25 cold years elapse
imperfect being
scar of time
tempted to climb out
I gaze upon my reflection
so I recede
tormented by what I see
Track Name: Righteous Violence
a call for restitution
you're pushed back to the end of the line
because it's not in their favor
to see things justified
white cops get away with murder
we can't sit back and watch

rumor
has it
they bleed

rumor has it they bleed
so we'll bare steel to find out
there's a greater consequence for abuse of power
and it's time we show them how
this is righteous violence
shed their blood to set them free

rumor
has it
they bleed
