Track Name: Devil's Dust
White smoke burns out a blackened skyline
I never thought the night could turn out this way
My eyes bled for you for a long time
You're the kind of girl that's got me tying a tourniquet around my elbow to get another fix.

I can’t see straight
from the bottom of this pit
I can’t breathe right
from all this smoke i don’t feel right my skin it won't fit i cannot see

Feel free to drag me down i want to throw my life away
Feel free to drag me down my life was over anyway

Time heals all wounds but it's made my need stronger
fires chalk out a hazy silhouette of you
I just can’t quit this, you know i need this
I just can’t help myself but all i ever really wanted was to get all of these bees out of my fucking teeth

My mind warps as you seep
deeper into my blood
there's one thing i know for sure
I WON'T DIE SOBER, EUGH!

WE WON'T DIE SOBER!
WE WON'T DIE SOBER!

Ill drag my self back off the ground
just to end up led the fuck back down
i can’t pick myself up off the ground
But I'm lost somewhere i don’t wanna be found

I don’t wanna be found
Track Name: Caustic Blood (Snake Tongue)
Smoke drink fuck fight hold it down and keep it tight I couldn't care less anyway
Lets make this a night i wish i could count the time but the lines seem blurred

Drop it all at the chance for us to see things at a glance shoot for the sun
Even if i burn my wings or miss out on the finer things I’ll speak in tongues

If i could take one single chance
I'd set things straight
If i could make one single change
I’d have shit made

We’ll bring noise
Empty shattered chords
in the hope
That I can somehow stay afloat

One day i can give this back
a life spent on the full warpath
cold empty juggernaut hearts
with swan songs of a blackened art
An ending time is drawing near
along a path that seemed so clear
but from ashes phoenixes rise
to bring this to it's full reprise

Live with this or go without, beyond the shadow of a doubt
a tendency for blasphemy you can’t see the forest for the trees

gangrene limbs and twisted souls, and consciences as black as coal
at night we fly you better run we winged things are not much fun.

If i could take one single chance
to set things straight
If i could make one single change
I’d have shit made x2

This time we bring the hunt to an end
an inhumane and unnatural trend x2

CRUSH
Track Name: Death Is Afraid Of Us
Skies will always fade
and the seasons they change nothing stays the same
And the cycle repeats again

Mountains fall in time
and the seas they all dry
nothing stays the same
and the cycle repeats again

you all will rue the day
That you ever doubted us
nothing stays the same
still the cycle repeats again

The earth will change its face
lost in an empty world
nothing stays the same the cycle repeats again
nothing stays the same
when you turn over new leaves
Track Name: Tinker, Tailor, Loather, Hater
One day i wish to be buried in gold!

Watch out! as all i touch proves to be worthless
Empty husks that won’t be worth the weight that drags them down and
You can fight it all you want but nothing's there to save you
They’re watching, and all you can do is let them devour you

Vultures, scream in the night
praying for fresh meat, praying for fresh meat
Vultures scream in the night
praying for you to, praying for you to bring out your dead

No one has the Midas touch!
But those that haunt the castle walls

So this is it
my everything
i just want the chance to live carefree
i can’t do this
can’t get through this
i'm not a pawn in your game
feeding back into society

You can see a way to wander through the darkest night
They say the stronger minds have always been the victors here and
Its a shame the spoils get shared amongst all the monsters
When all the peasants drown in their waste

Urchins crawl for the light
praying for fresh meat, praying for fresh meat
Urchins crawl for the light,
praying for you, praying for you to bring out your dead.

No one has the Midas touch!
bar those that haunt the golden shores

So this is it
my everything
i just want the chance to live carefree
i can’t do this
can’t get through this
i'm not a pawn in your game
feeding back into society

Pick the meat from my bones
Only death can guide me home
Pick the meat from my bones
Only you turn me to stone

These nightmares i’m living,
I’m surely awake
it all seems so real,
but the memories are vague x2

I want to be free.
Track Name: Throat Dragger
take a new chance i would wager
things will work out the same
fabrications of the mind
with a hunger for the shame
Fill your lungs with bile and sulfur
but it won’t change a thing
excuses got me no where
now i see everything

Now watch me bring down mountains
with all but idle though
ti'll achieve my own goals tenfold
and still come back for more
Life wont accept excuses
So why should I?

Moonshine courses through my blood
and it will stop for no one
I’ll keep swimming through the floods
and we will stop for no one

Give me one solid reason
to take back all I've said
I may have played the tyrant
but we didn't wind up dead
through all your jaded anger
there is no greater good
You've turned your blind eyes due south
to appear misunderstood

Now watch me bring down mountains
With nothing but idle thought
i'll achieve my own goals tenfold
and still achieve all yours
Life won't accept excuses
So why should we?

Moonshine courses through my blood
and it will stop for no one
I’ll keep swimming through the floods
and we will stop for no one

even if you play the victim
won’t mean you cannot fall
the world will swallow you whole
if you aren't standing tall

I hide in plain sight, the same as you
I hide in plain sight, the same as you

Moonshine courses through my blood
and it will stop for no one
I’ll keep swimming through the floods
and we will stop for no one
