this body's not for you... a sign, a seal, a moon unpeeled reaction, simply a must a forging of trust exit your home forget all your friends WRONG FLESH WRONG FLESH wet lips keen tips bleak dream insomnia open your eyes know what you see is WRONG FLESH WRONG FLESH i told you once I'll tell you again, it's WRONG FLESH WRONG FLESH to mine, to steal the voice unreal masked hope, sinking in dust compulsion a bust hold your breath be unto me WRONG FLESH WRONG FLESH

Drool from an inferior face With features drawn by a trembling hand A thing born only of ill-fortune I stand tall with pride And you're getting old, and you're not alone Ears of a savior are deaf to you I know that you know the nab munch is on My new friends, All mixed up in a throbbing mass I see you as my collection I know that you know the nab munch is on Crawl (x3) Grind (x3) Find your way back to me A white hot crypt built with divine grace No this is not the right place for you I know that you know the nab munch is on All you can say for yourself After all of those years, Sucking that spoon once used to stir minds into soup A warm, thick, welcoming broth For more tender beasts to sip from Poisoning what chance at achievement they might have Until all but the strongest are left writhing and lashing And wincing from your debilitating tricks While your delusions continue to build Stroke after stroke with that wild-eyed hunger That only a dog can read

Scoop the past and the shell remains A negative mask, a vanity stain From this path I know I will not stray The bottom's not so far after all I will SMEAR where the face was Nothing more or less SMEAR where the face was Where it goes who knows (i know what you're gonna say) Lag behind or standing still Impulse is fear, and fear you will A simple gesture made to erase debris that took me years to create. I've found a solution, and this one stays; Just eyes and holes and no mistakes. (just eyes and holes and eyes and holes…) And a SMEAR where the face was Nothing more or less SMEAR where the face was Where it goes who knows (easy come, easy go) …Now sorrow replaces shame Time clicks by and you wonder why the past gets closer to you every day. What has this space become? Which course is left to run? Unbridled void now flowing free – seems that the damage is done …And the conquest lingers on Question not the known solemn fact that this is where you now belong Be still - please refrain! Embrace the vanity stain! Memories stripped, emotions run dry with the comfort of absence contained. Ha!

Enter the spectrum pass Waves of color throb And be forever changed Promise of all I yearn Snare set and soon collapsed There's no returning now Now you are - A vapor in the orphan loop Dripping a nervous sweat They played me for a fool Pale hands reach out for me Now you are - A vapor in the orphan loop Forever clutched inside This error of endless woe A constant swallowing Now you are - A vapor in the orphan loop

These halls vibrate with a manic spew I can see they're all paranoid One of the batch breathes not the truth Look for the fake in the game Sound the green hunger Begin the hiss today (Your odor seeps, a guilty mist) Try you might - Your motives betray you An epitaph, both honest and cruel Despair is no stranger here We recognize what creeps out of the dark Just as you reach for the door Bind the morgue mother As we begin the hiss today (Damp with fever, wholly terrorized) Try you might - Your conquests became you Sound the green hunger Begin the hiss

Violent breakthrough with bravado Indigo creme spill Viscera, Conqueror, Trash vibrato From one look in it's eyes You'll know just what it does It ravages Mythic scum gene does not reason Glasshouse earthquake Viscera, Conqueror, Trash vibrato There's no dodging this bullet So applaud it's sense of craft It ravages It's like a stab to the gut As you take your final bow Scum Gene (x3) Take a bow (x3) Take a bow (x3) Take a bow (x3)
