Track Name: Toothless Dog
toothless dogs eating candy
as the sweetness turns to dust
feeling bitter, as they crawl
into their abyss
if they want they’ll drink from the river
if they want they’ll be made new
but they know they’ll never sleep again

ugly angels, hold their lovers
whose sins can’t be cleansed
licking the salt from their wounds
to taste the world they left behind
if they want they’ll drink from the river
if they want they’ll be made new
but they know they’ll never sleep again

even if the dogs could talk
i still wouldn’t give them my right lung
even if your mother called
i still wouldn’t pick up the phone
cause i have nothing to say about nothing anyway

if you want you’ll be a slave to your mother
if you want you’ll lie next to another
but you know you’ll never sleep again
Track Name: Wasted
waking up wasted on your front lawn
no more death and no more life
god will you carry me
but god wasn’t there when I got home
i don’t want to seem real

the sun mocks my blind eyes
laughing at me as I vomit now
god will you hold me
all god did was hurt her wives

i don’t want to see her
i don’t want to need her

all god ever did
was slaughter the ones that she loved
wasted on your front lawn
now she lies so still
Track Name: Murder me for my sins pt 2
blessed prostitute
looking to get stoned
he who is full of sin will you cast the first stone
lover in darkness will you be a true friend
and take this tired dog
back to sleep

will you please murder me
for all my sins
i’m tired now
put me to rest

pathetic excuse for righteousness
another place to never rest
place me in your arms
let me forget
Track Name: Bleed
a vacant wrist is a precious thing
cleansed of your savior’s filth
perversion always finds a way
it will it will it always will
tying nooses on the Christmas tree
christ child hang next to me
crying out for your mother’s warmth
your parent's sins will be your death
cleansed now of your saviors filth
fear tries to come back in
don’t be afraid that’s perversion’s way
it will it always will



bleed into dirt
all that love never killed
will never mean anything at all
block out the sun
grip tight to no life
all that love never killed
will never mean anything at all
you’ll never mean anything at all
Track Name: Worthless
getting into your car tell me that im worthless
getting into your car i know that im worthless
feeding demons candy i know that its pointless
feeding demons candy i know that im pointless

hanging from your noose you say its painless
drinking bleach from blood i know its painful
see Christ on the cross
doesn’t he look pretty
his mother’s dead eyes
aren’t they so beautiful

driving nails in my hands
tell me that im worthless
kissing your face
i know that im worthless
see you in your grave
tell you that i hate you
kissing your mouth
tell me that im worthless
Track Name: Abortion Ceremony
abortion ceremony
i don’t care about you anymore
your mom seems happy
so I guess your happy too
i want to watch you drink your tears
body’s shaking incestuously
pictures taken to be forgotten
well who even seems to care

smell like cigarettes
i love your face
everyone eats their birthday cake

abortion ceremony inside a church
everyone is dead and so am i
smile to forget this shit
drink the poison of a witch
smell like cigarettes
i love your face
everyone eats their birthday cake


abortion ceremony
i don’t miss you anymore
your mom seems happy
i guess your happy too
Track Name: Kisses
i kissed my dad today
only to feel his pain
he says son its all the same
but oh it comes back again
my mother kisses me goodnight
sweet dreams i know the lord will hold you tight
but when I look into her eyes
i see the things she does despise
in me

you’re the sacrificial son
the superficial one
let the blood drip

mary get on your knees
worship your savior please
if there is no relief
its alright
Track Name: Emily
trying not to breathe
it comes so naturally
lead me to what’s not there
i still don’t care
lead me to what’s not right
its all I know
all that is will not be

have you seen heaven’s light
its just like darkness just not as bright
it will forsake you and all you do
out on the doorstep the pills hit right
in heaven’s sight just not as bright
it will forsake you and all you do

it goes on for so long
and it takes so much goddamn shit
and benzos to make the skin grow thick
and to make the heart grow cold
to make your heart grow cold

cover your ears Emily
your weakened mind fears nothing
i want to know if you’ll still care for me
if I left you to decay
so I brought you
roadside flowers and dead pets
to keep you safe
with hope that they’ll abandon you
in your time of need
the purest sin that ive ever seen
emily will you bury me
the purest sin that ive ever seen
emily will you still love me
Track Name: Numb
when you leave my eyes grow dark
drowning in empty space
incessant thoughts don’t subside
next to jesus christ who should have died

depression comforts me
in my favorite misery
incessant thoughts don’t subside
next to jesus christ who should have died

jesus died here
with you and me
jesus doesn’t care
that you cut your hair off
that you killed your family
that your strung out lately
that you love your family
hallelujah

flowers grow in your sin
light will fill you from within
rats look nice tied around your skin
rats look nice gnawing on your skin
rats always seem to look nice

jesus christ will you make me numb
jesus christ will you make me new
jesus christ will you please shut up
Track Name: Child Sacrifice
named death danielle
hell’s favorite daughter
i want to hold you
desires wrong
leave me alone i don’t need you
danielle i want to hold you
i want to feel you
i want to hold you

ill sacrifice you on denial’s cross
next to father, son, holy ghost
fatalistic tendencies
let me be your weakness
desecrated heaven, holy demon
nothing matters anymore
child sacrifice bring me the knife
ill end it for you
Track Name: Sad Pony Guerrilla Girl (Xiu Xiu)
You say I am loca because I am your girl
You say I am stupid because I am your girl
You leave me out on the steps
You dress me up like a boy
You say that I am your secret love
You say to be quiet but I want to tell the whole world

I like my neighborhood, I like my gun
Drive in my little car
I am your girl and I will protect you

We do it in the back of my little car
Pull up my pants and fix my bra
Go on home to your kids
I'm going to be quiet and I'm going to tell the whole block
Track Name: Last Dance For Angel Boy
cut off my hands
theyre only pain
i’m trying not
to mix our blood
its not the same
its all the same
getting high never coming down

cut off my hands
they’re only pain
i’m trying not
to fix our lungs
they’re not the same
to fix our lungs
they’re all the same
getting high never coming down

feels right to feel so wrong
never coming down again
feels wrong to feel so right
never coming down again
Track Name: Darkness Understands
darkness occupies
what blatant love denies
to fill a certain void
which i seem to enjoy
it always leaves me blind
inside a broken place
love can only heal
that which isn’t real

let me stay gone
darkness understands
gnawing on your skin
to watch blood become blood

purity hides it light
from what i’ve become
a glaring idolatry
a haunted memory
it always leaves me blind
inside a broken place
love can only heal
that which isn’t real
Track Name: True Blue
every morning i take my pills and you do not know me. i watch the birds weep across the sky as your eyes change a brilliant blue, a soft green. you can see beyond me. you look at me with grey in january though it is warm still, we cannot see the ocean in any direction. we drive to adams, tn, you move in grey and laugh in blue. we talk about your friend who has died- morphine overdose. there is someone beyond myself and you can see. you walk between the abandoned buildings and watch the train passing alone. my soul is a broken down ferris wheel blinking electric blue and red and green tears into the expansive nothing. true blue i carry you with me.
