Track Name: Howls - Guilt Trip
Another day, what have we become?
An empty room to see the light before the sun,
And I just need to see the names,
This list goes on and on,
With everyday, I find nothing completes me,
I decay, life got in the way.

Not dead, we’re not dead yet.

Your heartless, I’m lovesick,
I’m avoiding it all on purpose,
I don’t want the confrontation, or conversations.
Your heartless, I’m lovesick,
I’m avoiding it all on purpose,
I can only praise your ambition,
I just hope reality sinks in.

I don’t want, another guilt trip.

Brightest lights shine in the darkest corners,
Still I see, trying to find my way.

Not dead, we’re not dead yet.

Your heartless, I’m lovesick,
I’m avoiding it all on purpose,
I don’t want the confrontation or conversations.
Your heartless, I’m lovesick,
I’m avoiding it all on purpose,
I can only praise your ambition,
I just hope reality sinks in.

I don’t want, another guilt trip.

Times are changing and it shows,
We’re not broken, we’re just cold.
Track Name: Oak - Broken Bodied
Spinning, I'm spinning
out of breath
My lungs are too small
My windpipe is an inch too narrow

My mind's a nest
I am lost, paralyzed, or both

There's a lump in my throat
Like when you've cried for hours
But I'm not crying
I wish I was

My body is weak
Just a crooked figure
I wish you were here
Just to hold me
Almost as much as
I wish you never saw me this way

I've been down this road before
I know how the story goes
It's too bright and my eyes are hurting
I am shaking and I can't work this out

This is what I live with
What I have to power through
I am broken, without reason
It's just how I am
Track Name: Human Future - Axiom
A new day, once again
Staring into the lifeless lens
A formal face
Speaks the blights of the world

(The sirens start wailing)
Fear leads and it sells
(Their lights flicker brightly)
Scrambling for another morsel
(The road ahead closing)
Watch as the vultures circle
(Armed men soon imposing)
Ready to strike, as privacy dies.

(The sirens start wailing)
A new life of cajoling
(Their lights flicker brightly)
And their words for controlling
(The road ahead closing)
Watch as the vultures circle
(Armed men soon imposing)
Ready to strike, as privacy dies.

Take your tips from the hype men
Parsing truth from artful script
Money dictates every sentence
Nourish cravings for idle gossip
Through the web words get spread like a plague
Sprawling mess to decipher
The lights and sirens
Signal this road’s closure

In a world that we’re learning
Mankind’s hope bears little fruit
The facts are depressing
The calling is dying
Track Name: Scared of Everything - Dishwashing Melodies
Stare directly at the sun without caution,
Burn out your useless retinas,
Sight won't save you from the poison in your mind,
Rot with me.

Obsessed with standing out,
Obsessed with shining through,
Narcissism: everything touched turns hollow.

I'm tired of feeling so tired.
I'm tired.

Laugh with me, soothe my peeling skin.
Rot with me, I'm giving in.
Track Name: Hexis - Tenebris
A rope around my heart, emptiness in your eyes, emptiness in your glance. Lonely and abandoned. Lonely, but never alone. Always followed by a whisper, always followed by darkness. I want to get away from this world. But the only escape is death.
Track Name: Regurgitate Life - This Great Divide
I don’t understand the word humanity
What is its meaning if we can’t look each other in the eye?
I feel destined to become more jaded over time
Corrupted outlook

Ever growing population
Crowd thickens as empathy burns away
Emotions nonexistent, happiness just a memory
What’s become of us?
Disconnected

Disconnected
I feel severed

Hatred will kill us all
Fire against fire just greatens the divide
You’re supposed to be my reflection
But I don’t see myself in you

Trying to change the world with your eyes closed
You try to speak but all I hear is hatred
Ignorance

We were born with a hole in our heart
We evolved into this machine
Superior intelligence, zero remorse
How can we call ourselves human?

I’ve never felt so empty stood in the midst of this great divide
Track Name: Rope - Ohrwurm
The world outside is none of my concern – a bleakness I don’t want to know. Years spent in search of certainty found only in the assurance of men. No doubts is what these men had, and if they did, they kept it to themselves; instead of spreading uncertainty around, left to wondering who or what they were, close to an answer.
Track Name: Palehorse - The Shower
False arrest
Carwash of cigarettes and bourbon stench
False friends revoltingly … alarmingly undressed
Slippery, stained fingers, slip-slide and clench

Happy hour?
Happy hour?!
Unhappy disaster
Scratching grooves into flesh, to what end?
Unloved one’s love bodies in plaster

You’re shuddering? Take my scarf
Ungrateful. Go home, you’re drunk
Or another? Fuck, why not?
We’re fucking dripping, and we’ve got what we’ve got

The shower
No story
It’s fucking cold
In the shower

Limp spaghetti
Jeans over handrail
Creaking floor
ITV4

Sucking on dead dry dirt
Sand teeth tectonic cracks

Deep stitched in tongue
Stillborn helix neck to spine

Limp wrist, waist of a stranger
Coughing of the neighbour
Underwear, everywhere
Underwear, everywhere

Hairbands, tins with ash
Shaft of light, lids collapse

Hairbands, tins with ash
Shaft of light, lids collapse

Where is the shower?
Where is the shower?
Track Name: Earth Moves - Pia Mater
save our souls
disconnect my broken neck
in retrospect we have

it hurts just to be here
my mind and the room
the intricate working, a body of two
my work isn't over, i'm yet to consume
i breathe in the power, exhale the doom
disconnect
i'm pulling away

did you see the bending?
the eyes rolled white
the arms contoured

abhor me forever, a heart set to murder
i boldly envision the ending

it shouldn't have happened
i shouldn't be here
Track Name: Annexia - In Time, This Tide Too Will Break
When you leave, please take this guilt from me
I fear being too weak to endure
Blind to life beyond
Without a confidant there's only ruins
Here comes a repeat of youth
Signalled with each fracture in the world
crafted around me -
A lonely Isle, isolated.
Burden of limitation forgotten,
Heading towards the ocean.
A deluge washing over,
each wave thrashing
Once at the crest the decline will follow.
Maybe a wave will bring me gently back to shore.
