GRAVE ECHOES

DRAG ME

Down into your black pit of snakes
Feel so down in the hours awake
Kill me again so you'll feel alive
The dawn's darkest when we all die
  in my hours of shame
i am lost to the game
and it all stays the same
I can not sleep in the silence
Echoes in absence of violence
Celluloid dreams of camphor and flame
Let me rise from the empty grave
tapping an empty vein
love of a welcome pain
cutting against the grain

NOTHING

Is ever what it fucking seems
But the same old nightmares in the dream
Wish I could see the end of the road
Forget all the hateful lies spoke
when the cold whispers tombs
driving death into wombs
beneath our haunted moon
I never could prepare myself
For all the makings of my own Hell
I will wade through your demented iris
Just to sample your sweet malice
  breathe deeply on the fumes
  presale tickets to doom
  at home with the exhumed

Intimacy with tragedy
Choke on the blood of enemies
the upside of the outside
Ecstasy of agony
The killer's prints in poetry
the riptide of the limelight
Misery is destiny
How dare you speak your blasphemy
when insides reek of enzymes?
Leisurely rip injuries
Open my soul with devilry
  analyze the genocide

ONLY IF WE SURVIVE

ONCE upon a time
we lived as maggots
free within the LIME
AS we cut our wrists
to leech away pain
in pools of bloody PISS

Do you get the idea
Or are you just cattle?

FUCK

COME STAND WITH ME ON THE BONES OF THE SLAUGHTERED
THE SACRIFICIAL LAMBS OF YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS
THEN WASH THEM AWAY WITH CRIMSON WATERS

DON'T PRAY FOR US
JUST PREY FOR US
DON'T PRAY FOR US
JUST PREY FOR US

don't
you
dare
fuck
ing
pray
for
ME

Intimacy with tragedy
Choke on the blood of enemies
the upside of the outside
Ecstasy of agony
The killer's prints in poetry
the riptide of the limelight
Misery is destiny
How dare you speak your blasphemy
when insides reek of enzymes?
Leisurely rip injuries
Open my soul with devilry
  analyze the genocide

only if we survive
