Time of indifference and Time just time Sometimes everything would be fine if Only for time Sleeping don't you wake me Don't you understand Please just let me float this dream's The best I've ever had It's raining down and down Just let it rain away Don't bother me with rain And other miserys Tomorrow and forever Let me sleep today Turn off the winding clock And let me drift away

This gun is loaded Ah hey Fellate the barrel Suck bullets baby Out on the corner Nobody hears? Nobody cares? (Scream! Scream! Scream!) And when it hurts, it hurts, it feels, I fall, she screams, And when i think, i think, it seems I fall, she screams I fall, she screams To the big big house To the very small rooms Ah ha ha you're living in ruin! I wanna tell you a story? I think I'll start again! You should hear my story? I think I'll start again! And when it hurts, it hurts, it feels, I fall, she screams, And when i think, i think, it seems I fall, she screams I fall, she screams I fall She screams I fall She screams Well i can really 'freak' with that! You really 'zero' me out! (all dead pretentiousness) Ah ha! ha! This Gun Is Loaded I'm feeling bored This gun is loaded Ah ha! ha!

The open window Haunts the cradle Kill the crow Black eyed demons thru this broken pain of glass Rush the body A comin' thru the rye Crowns of thorns upon your head Your jesus hey! hey! Crowns of thorns upon my head My jesus hey! hey! Turn around Turn around Despair Shadow Endless fear Colliding thru the open air Crowns of thorns upon your head Your jesus hey! hey! Crowns of thorns upon my head My jesus hey! hey! And you can have my Oil seed rape As you Burn in the corn As you Float out the window Oil seed rape Oil seed rape Yellow miles of miles on miles The haunting smell of opium Gliding on a breath The cradle's empty and the crow lies dead.

Violence 03:34
Sick and intervening as she's hiding from the shrill And piercing laughter, Satisfaction Guaranteed For all who care to taste The blade, the blade Of slaughtered steel The blade that wounds upon your naked, skin And as she breathes her lasting Please don't, lay me out in red. Forest deep and thickening Bear witness to this illing sin, Of silence Only shattering To relieve The footsteps in your mall Of heather Stained final breath, You mark is made upon your.. Hallowed, sickness, Tortured, Soul of torment, Aching sores and Blistered Wasted On your furniture of roses Please don't, lay me out in red. And when I'm dead and lingering Inside perverted memories.. That scream the taste of violence Tastes only of the cobwebs spun Upon your shell of haunting Don't forget the eyes of redness Spill the veins that burst with ecstasy Purveying thoughts of misery Please don't lay me out at all!

Threadbare 01:36
You twisted whore i love you You freezing mutilation Your kiss intoxicates me Extinct no longer, meanwhile I am cretaceous help me! You torture my submission We are so threadbare Swollen coil of saturation I wash my face and hands Your touch unwraps my senses Delirious, i am faun, yeah! You perfect dancer baby! You torment my infliction We are so everywhere You stand, i fall to pieces Sit thru my cruci 'fiction' All kinds of hell and heaven You breath's my respiration If i can live without you Then i can't live at all We are so threadbare

Cerise, release and so much more With perfect needle, hits the floor I will be breathing will you? Velvet warms all over here Velvet warms all over here Lay down in painless falling now And it hurts too much to be where you are Hurts too much to be where you are I've got the perfect needle I've got the perfect needle For you Surrender down comes everything Breathes no more and falls to sleep Blind and helpless sick and dead Treasure waits complete and there With scattered needles everywhere Thorn at the end of every road Thorn at the end of every road

Riot sister riot throw down riot sister fall Come on, now, now, riot sister girl Beneath between and under each and every ceiling to the floor I hear her whispering around, I hear her voice, she calls Down down down It sucks you in Now There is no floor Jilted love, she saw me from the window being by myself, My friend lives on the 14th floor and i live on the twelfth Sometimes i hear her up above, he hears her down below There is no in between floor, it's so funny how things go. Down down down It sucks you in Now There is no floor Torture of impassion leaves it's name upon the door As a hurricane of innocence is carved along the walls Riot sister riot throw down riot sister fall For all intent and purpose For there is no floor Down down down It sucks you in Now There is no floor
8.
Now is only never when I thought I heard you screaming Put a cross upon your forehead Let it be you own damnation Everywhere is nowhere to be somewhere is to try too hard for everything is nothing to be something is to die anticipating nowhere if you try Distance can be nothing (if you go inside your head) instead of trying to be everywhere anticipating nowhere Underneath is just above but down below in never ending never ending has to stop but when it stops it lasts forever anticipating nowhere if you try
9.
I'm on top of a mountain with you I'm an elevator I'm a seahorse for you now Hey hey hey Before you go, remember me Creature of my so called cherish my desire Exorcist before me, turns away Before you go, remember me Forget your tears forget you mind Forget the dress you wore, hey hey Forget yourself But remember me I'm nothing more than less could be You're one below me closed as the eye can see Before you go, remember me

Suffercation 02:39
Don't let me loose it my hold on me that you keep in too many situations "Such-a-lot-like-that" sensations Let me breathe i'm choking Suffocation How can just you surround me Suffocation You're using up my situation Complications and irritations don't wanna talk or think about it insinuations becoming habits I've got a friend who's just like that Such a lot like that everything was different maybe Suffocation Oh please, don't you see, so real, for a time Oh please, leave me, for a while With Suffocation Sometimes take the time to wonder If you'll ever pull me under Don't need you to correct me Select, erect or redirect me I saw a film and it helped me over Now i think i know where you are Please don't try to burn me out girl With Suffocation Suffocation

Silent Water 03:27
I'm like a stone in water Drowning, i can't breathe and so tired Tired of waking up Tired of breathing Tired of suffocating Tired of sleeping Silent water Silent water Silent water Silent water You will take me to the deep blue sea Leviathan, in the ocean You will bury me at the bottom of deep blue sea Hey i must be dreaming, said the whisper I was screaming in your shallow crystal water will i drown and i am so tired. Wretch upon a rafter from another strange disaster, slips below the surface having tried but he is so tired.
