Track Name: Dead Children's Playground
just go on pretending
that there is a happy ending
the fabric of our lives
is woven from the pain that we hide
breaking me down
tear out my heart
without a sound
breaking me down
tear out the useless pieces of my life
and take a ride in dead childrens playground
i knew that i would break her heart
maybe its for the better
she was only happy when my hands were red with the blood of her sin
and i know
Track Name: Curdled
wait a minute
let the blood begin to flow once again
last stroke of pleasure then the suffering is ready to begin
i hope you don't think this is all just to waste your precious time
you might have a change of heart, once you find out what i have in mind

i never wanted to be part of your world
i never was part of the fabric of your world

now hold your breath and take it in to such a dark and secret place
then let it out and suck it up and swallow everything you taste
spread it wide and feel the rapture of a thousand angels songs
i'll tap the roof, might leave a scar, but never meant you any harm
i never wanted to be part of your world
and i'm so sick of it that my blood has curdled

i never was part of the fabric of your world
and i'm so sick of it that my blood has curdled

i don't have a fucking thing that anyone could take from me
except my worthlessness and rage
except to share my suffering
and i don't need a fucking thing
except someone to share this pain
what do you fucking want from me
it's only heartache i bring
if it feels wrong to live
if it feels right to die
then we will say goodbye
Track Name: Alleyways and Ditches
i've lived in alleyways and ditches
eaten things that you've discarded
but i won't be forever watching the shit you do
i've slept in horror and drank the terror from your cup of lies
and now i'm sick of you
and in these alleyways and ditches i've seen bodyparts dismembered
remains of your selfish lives
too long have i stayed in the shadows
always watching, growing stronger
and now i will rise
now that these alleyways and ditches burn a hole into existence
i will be forever tearing it open
and if this wound is in need of stitches
just know that i won't let you sew it shut
because i can't let you forget
Track Name: Waist Deep In Blood
waist deep in blood, with a box cutter by my side
and it might have been wrong
but it's how i survived
and in my life, i have seen and done so many things,
that i don't have shit to prove to any human being
tell me, can you take the death of love?
tell me, can you face the fear you serve?
this is my life, and i will live it my own way
so don't you step to me unless your ready to bleed
my mind is full of dreadful things
like carving you up
like doing most anything
oh the joy of pain
why am i so fucked up?
why am i such an awful thing?
Track Name: Straight Razor Rape
why the fuck did you cut off that bitches cunt?
well how the fuck else could i get it in my pocket?
and while i'm standing here arguing with myself
i know that i should be getting my ass somewhere else
blood on my hands
the tears in her eyes
please understand
there will be peace when you die
i know what it takes
to make a heart ache
a straight razor rape
you weren't the first
you won't be the last
give me a break and take your own life
Track Name: If I Should Die Tonight
i have seen your suicides
melodramatic lives
i have seen your fucked up point of view
i have got no where to go
no one to trust i know
i have got nothing to fucking do
and it's all right if i should die tonight
yeah, it's alright with me
i have got my innocence
and i'm going to fuck you with it
and i won't stop until i am through
my mother said that my brain was fucked
and that i would end up dead if i don't stop the stupid shit i do
Track Name: Nadia
i found you lying on the floor
in a puddle of piss an shit and blood
there were cum stains on your face
i wondered if you had died, or perhaps were still alive
then a sound came so sweet that it almost brought me to my knees
you started crying
it's fun to be there when your dying, nadia
crying out my name while you are lying there in pain
with the piss and shit and blood
and the cum stains on your face
there is nothing here
there is nothing there
just you and death and two arms to share
