Track Name: You Don't Matter
It's fucked up to pretend that...
I give a fuck when I surely don't.
You thrive off fucking attention.
But you never meant shit to me.
Everything you said you stood for...
was nothing but bullshit and lies.
Your existence is a fucking joke...
And you never meant shit to me.
You parade around
Like you're the fucking king...
of something you...
never fucking had the heart for.
Fuck you and your family
and your bullshit schemes
Don't you know they never meant shit to me.
You fucked up everything
and every chance you've had to redeem yourself
You don't act like you care, but you do.
We're the one's not caring so fuck you!
FUCK YOU!!
Track Name: Never Walk The Path
I fear failure, even though I fail everyday.
I fear the reaper, though I'm dead in my own way.
Everydays a brand new day for me to make mistakes.
Everydays a brand new day to fuck up in another way.
I'll never live up to you.
I'll never walk your path.
The devil lives in me, and everyone I see.
No hypothetical blood, could set us free.
Nothing when we're gone, No scorn for all our wrongs.
The shit that we've been fed, was wrong all along.
An internal struggle, between bad and even worse.
No will to survive, it's not hard to accept this curse.
Isolation is salvation. Confusion is my crutch.
Paranoia is my muse. I'm losing touch.
No blood to cleanse my sins.
I need to learn to cope.
My transgressions weigh me down.
No faith to restore my hope.
Track Name: Deeper In Shit
Up shit's creek, going nowhere fast
I try to build myself up, but it'll never last.
Keep myself up but getting put down.
Cry out for help but no one's ever around.
Fighting till I'm fucking blue in the face
Hope dies fast when you're raised in this place
The drugs, the poverty, the fucking corrupt.
They'll sell you out. They never gave a fuck.
You got to do what you gotta do to get by.
If you take shit, then you'll never survive.
Apathy is the only shield we'll get.
But it gets us nowhere but deeper in shit.
Some say everyday is a fucking blessing
I say it's getting more and more and more depressing
With nothing to look forward to but a bitter end...
and waking up to do it over and over again!
Sometimes you got to walk the delusional path.
Hope for the best though you know that it won't last.
Can't ask for help because pride's a fucking bitch.
So you bury yourself and you realize you're deeper in shit.
WE'RE DEEPER IN SHIT!
You got to do what you gotta do to get by.
If you take shit, then you'll never survive.
Apathy is the only shield we'll get.
But it gets us nowhere but deeper in shit.
You got to do what you gotta do to get by.
If you take shit, then you'll never survive.
Apathy is the only shield we'll get.
But it gets us nowhere but deeper in shit.
Track Name: Beyond The Train Tracks
Satin lining in a silver coffin
surrounding a rotting corpse
I took you for granted
This room is cold and full of remorse
The roses they placed upon you
have quickly wilted away
just like your existence
I hope the memories remain
But I feel their starting to fade
With each passing day
I try to fight the tears away
Because they won't bring you back in no way
But I feel their starting to fade
With each passing day
I try to fight the tears away
Because they won't bring you back in no way
Instability causes poor judgement
I believe this to be the case
I don't believe in an afterlife per se
But I hope you're in a better place.
Step by step I walk away from it
And step by step I'm always coming back
I coulda had your back
Before the train tracks
I shoulda had your back
I blame me!
Track Name: Another Fool
Arrogance is ignorance's only friend
You can see them both working hand in hand...
To destroy everything that's worth a shit
Fuck that! I'm never gonna quit...
Fighting for what's right.
I'm struggling every fucking night...
...to break away from my demons inside.
Can't get away. I got no place to hide.
You've pissed away every chance you've had.
But still you bitch about where you're at.
You're a waste as a matter of fact...
And a disgrace with the way that you act.
In this negative world I make the best of it.
Never dragging down others in my own shit.
I may be fucked up, but I'm not selfish.
You're self-consumed always threatening to quit this.
I got no sympathy, got no remorse.
For too long I let it run it's course.
You start shit and you drag us down,
You'll never know what life is really about.
Track Name: Misotheist
Hand from the sky..snuff me out..I'm wiping my ass
..with every page that's been written
Of fictitious struggles and bogus fairy tails
Of saviors, messiahs, and everlasting love.
You want my soul? Prove it to me.
Brainwash me. Or Anything...
...to check me out of reality
baptize me in broken dreams.
I've lost my faith in humanity...
so give me something I need.
Check me out of reality
baptize me in broken dreams.
I've lost my faith in humanity...
so give me something I need.
No nails, No cross
Just pariahs on a power trip
They mean nothing to me
I can't believe in something I cannot see.
Track Name: Cement Shoes
Sinking to the bottom
Reaching to the heavens
Asking for forgiveness
But never answered back
Swallowed by all my doubt
I asked too many questions
it knocked me fucking down
To the bottom forever.
My soul's been absent...
For years upon years.
My heart's been blackened...
Since I started breathing.
Fingers are pointed...
digging into my chest.
Accusation rips into me...
and tears me apart!!!
Living in this hell
Dying's more like heaven
Can't make it to the surface
I'm falling forever
It doesn't fucking matter.
I'm just another statistic.
Their system snuffed me out...
I got nothing to show for it.
Track Name: Barstool Psychiatry
Depression, it's eating me away
each swig erases all the memories.
Motivation, a quality I lack.
Too ignorant to ever face the facts.
Piss my life away,
more and more everyday
a life full of mistakes
I couldn't have it any other way.
I'm always to blame
a scapegoat to your shame
a life full of mistakes
I couldn't have it any other way.
Beaten down by reality
My pockets are empty just like me
It's all my fault can't push the blame
on anyone else for this life of pain.
Satisfaction, something I'll never see.
Another round to help me forget everything.
