Track Name: Straight Teeth
I came back
A return to burn
The shit I said
The shit I learned...fuck

It's a great day to be dead
I can't feel the wind in my hair
Or the sun on my face
I walk among the flesh
I walk among the snakes
A charming smile
With such great teeth

Hand shakes with touches of death
Beating hearts to eternal rest
Walking death, bound to the earth
Decaying body a feast for the worms
Are the birds still singing?

Old clothes and dusty bones
I'll make my way, this world is my home
A gentle nudge, a quiet pull
I feel the ground calling. It's guiding my bones

Sharp bones through dead skin
No heart and nothing to feel
Smile on my face, walking death with a grin
Are the birds still singing?

On the day we meet face to face
the chill in your spine
Your life by my grace
It feels so good to be dead
Touches of death and a feast for the worms

I came back
A return to burn
The shit I said
The shit I learned
I came back
Track Name: Swollen Hearts
Hold me close and don't let go

I'm afraid I'll never see you again
Please forgive my wounded emotion
I'm still learning this process
I said I was perfect
A beautiful failure

Motivated mind
With a strong man's back
So please forgive the things that I said
Please forgive the things that I did
A big heart with a sharp tongue
Hold me close, don't let go

I'll do better in another life
You'll be the river and I'll be the stone
So that you may smooth me over and turn me into a beautiful shape
No cracks or rough edges
I took the right path with a crooked step
I smiled when I should have cried

Hold me close
Don't let go
I'd be weak if it weren't for my bones

Hold me close
Motivated mind
With a strong man's back
So please forgive the things that I've said
Please forgive the things that I did
A big heart with a sharp tongue
Hold me close
Don't let go
Track Name: Silver Eyes
I'll put an end to my generation
It's already done, they've got no motivation.
Straight down to the bottom line
To inherit the earth past our prime
Hypocrisy with no end in sight
Silver tongues can't see the light
Bad brains and dark hearts
They won't see the end before it starts

I've got no faith left
Cashed in my rain checks
Don't want to waste breath
About their lives and how they waste it
I've got no faith left
Don't want to waste breath
There'll be no saviors
No resurrections
You had your chance

Now the dead can't rest here
Walking corpses, judgment sentenced
Gray skin with dead eyes
Afraid of the shadows, afraid of the light
Just wipe the slate clean
No need to turn back time
Everything must go
It's the end of the world and I think it's fine
You had your chance

Dead world
No more righteous
Can't fight the tide
They are crushed upon the rock
Let the fire consume the rest of the world
I am the enemy
Dead world
No more righteous
Can't fight the tide
They are crushed upon the rock
Let the fire consume the rest if the world

Everything is so complicated
Their lives and how they waste it
I'll put an end to my generation
It's already done, they've got no motivation
Straight down to the bottom line
To inherit the earth, past our prime
Gray skin with dead eyes
Afraid of the shadows, afraid of the light
Bad brains and dark hearts
They won't see the end before it starts

I've got no faith left
Cashed in my rain checks
Don't want to waste breath
About their lives and how they waste it
I've got no faith left
Don't want to waste breath
There will be no saviors
No resurrections
You had your chance
Track Name: Shallow Veins
Feet on the street
Yeah I'm feeling the beat
The city's running fast on blood and concrete
Devils moving in
Hell, celebrity sin
Everyone has a price and he's cashing in
So hold on tight, yeah believe the hype
100 mph got you feeling right
The man on the screen, screaming prophecy
You better believe he's spreading the disease
There's nothing here for me

I am ready, ready to die
Ready to fucking die

I hate this fucking place
Garbage in the streets, fucking human waste
Piled high through the city scape
I'm ready to go, take me from this place.
Dead... done and done
No light left
Dead.... done and done
So give me the gun

A world full fucking sheep
Part of the flock sowing what they reap
Can't save the blind or weak
They believe what they read while they're on their knees.
Dead... done and done
No light left, so give me the gun
Dead... done and done
I imagine the world burnt by the sun

Falling
Crawling
Spinning
I'm ready to die

Devil's moving in
Hell, celebrity sin
Everyone has a price and he's cashing in
The man on the screen, screaming prophecy you better believe he's spreading the disease

I am ready to die
I'm ready to fucking die
Pull the trigger please take my fucking life.
Ready to die.
Track Name: Sharp Suits
Sharks are in the water
And this is no place to have hands like a lobster
Sharks are in the water

The sun is boiling the sea
The predators are restless
I can't turn my neck fast enough
I'm always waiting

I should have kissed her goodbye
Waiting to be devoured
Waiting to be consumed

No manners, no honor
I wish the lightning would hit the water
Kill them all, kill them quick
I'm not man enough to sink with the ship
I should have kissed her goodbye

Salty water
There are no tears here
Sharks are in the water.
Yeah, I'm scared
I never had a chance
I never had
I never had a chance
I never had

I blame it on my species
A stroll in the sand
No friend of the fishes
Sharks are in the water
Yeah, I'm scared
