Track Name: Slithering
TAKE THE EDGE OFF
HYPOCRISM WITHERING
FEED EM YOUR LIES
AND YOUR FUCKING SLITHERING
GET REAL
GET REAL
AS REAL AS THAT FORKUED TONGUE
TEACHING A BUNCH OF FAKES
THE WAYS OF THE WRONG

REALITY CHECK
REALITY SLAP
OH SNAP
YOU TASTE LIKE SHIT
REAL RECOGNIZE REAL AND THATS ALL YOURE NOT ABOUT
Track Name: To Dust
BLATENTLY OFFERED SECURITY THAN YOU RIPPED IT AWAY
I PUT MY BETS ON THE REAPER CAUSE HE NEVER ASTRAYS
TIGHT GRIP ON WHATS LEFT RIP MY HEART OUT OF MY -
RELEASE ME FROM THIS PAIN PUT THIS ALL TO REST

GRASP FOR THE LIGHT AS THESE HANDS THEY BREAK
I JUST CANT LIVE WITH THE FUCKING SHAME
MY MIND GROWS WEAKER BY THE WORD YOU SAY
EMBRACE THE FACTS THERES NOTHING LEFT FOR ME
OFTEN CONTEMPLATING WETHER TO END THIS ALL
ILL STUFF A BULLET UP MY OWN FUCKING SKULL
SANITY SLIPS THROUGH THE CRACKS OF WHATS LEFT
I LOST MY SOUL AND IM LOSING CONTROL

SO IF YOURE UP THERE TWOFACED MOTHERFUCKER
THIS IS FOR YOU
SWING YOUR RIGHTEOUS HAND
PUT ALL MY MEANS TO AN END

CAUSE ALL YOU EVER DO IS MURDER

MURDERER
Track Name: Now I Am Become Death
I AM THE LIGHT
I AM THE FUTURE
I AM PEACE
THE END OF ALL EVIL

I AM FUCKING DEATH
Track Name: Shallow Earth
BOUND BY THE CHAINS SINCE IVE LEARNED TO TALK
INSANITY CHOSE MY FATE AND TORE ME APART
AND THERES A HOLE IN MY CHEST AT WHERE MY HEART SHOULD BE
THIS WRECKED SOUL NO LONGER STANDS THIS BLEAK REALITY

IM TIRED OF THE PEOPLE
IM TIRED OF THEIR WAYS
IM TIRED OF THIS SHALLOW EARTH
TIRED OF THIS PLACE

TIRED OF THE PEOPLE
TIRED OF THEIR WAYS
ILL TAKE NO FURTHER RISK AND REASSURE MY SOUL SUSTAINS

TRY AND TRY
WERE BOUND TO LOSE

STARTING TO GET SICK OF MY OWN FUCKING GAMES
PUT ON A WORTHLESS PLAY TO CONVINCE ME IM OKAY
BUT I KNOW IM NOT AND I KNOW ILL NEVER BE
THIS MIND IS WHERE IM TRAPPED AND SLOWLY RID OF ALL SANITY

THIS SHALLOW EARTH TOOK ME AWAY
SINCE I WALK THIS SOIL IM NOT THE SAME
YOU FILLED MY MIND WITH DEATH AND DECAY
REAPER COME SET ME FREE

IM SORRY MOTHER
IM SORRY FATHER
FOR YOU ILL HANG MY HEAD IN SHAME
I TRIED HARD
REAL HARD
MANKIND WAS BOUND TO LOSE FROM THE FUCKING START
Track Name: Emmanuel
GOD IF YOURE UP THERE
PLEASE ANSWER ME
I AM LOST IN THIS WORLD AND I CANNOT SEE
WHO I AM AND WHO I WAS AND WHO I WANT TO BE
AND THIS ANCHOR WEIGHS ME DOWN MILES DEEP

LOVING AND CARING FOR A FAMILY BUT ITS ALL DARK AROUND ME
I CAST A LIGHT THAT NO ONE SEES CAUSE THE LIGHT THEY SEE ISNT THE REAL ME
AND I REALLY WONDER WHAT HAS STARTED ALL OF THIS
THIS FUCKING HATE
THESE FEELINGS DONT JUST APPEAR
THEYVE BEEN SHAPED FOR YEARS AND YEARS

WHEN DID IT GO WRONG
WHEN DID IT START
TRIED TO CAST A LIGHT BUT IT ONLY GOT DARK
SO FUCKING AFRAID OF THIS UNCERTAINTY
THIS IGNORANCE FOR LIFE BURNS ME
