Track Name: Obsession
I’m so fucking sick of trying to talk to you
Of trying to speak to you
You will know my name
I will cut you down and spit you out

This obsession - making me a little fucking crazy
This obsession - leaving me miserable
Don’t call me crazy
Don't call me crazy
I am not fucking crazy anymore
You are my weakness, my everything
I want to feel your bones on me
I am the man standing outside your window
One day I'll have you here, tied up like I wanted you

I want to feel your skin against mine
I want to cut every fucking piece of you
You cannot hide, I will find you
You cannot hide away from me

I am the man standing outside your window
One day I’ll find you
There is nowhere you can hide
Don’t call me crazy
Don’t call me crazy
I am not fucking crazy anymore
Track Name: Black Noose
You don’t know how it feels
You don’t know
I was only fourteen
I was so young
I tried to forget the times you forced that rock at me
To afraid to go outside because you were out there
So terrified, feeling amputee
These legs could barely move away from you
I tried to forget the times you treated me like an animal
Not your animal
I am not your animal

I grabbed the razor to his throat and slit it down to the bone
I strung him up with a black noose, hanging high from the ceiling
Black noose
Never more

How can one suffer by the hands of a sinner?
How can one suffer by the hands of a sinner?
How?
Black noose
Track Name: Discarded
What kind of man am I meant to be?
Feeling cold hearted with the wind at my neck

These are the reasons I can’t forget
I am so lost in my own head
Sometimes I think I’m better off dead
Sometimes I think that I’m better off dead

I’m feeling broken
I’m feeling weak
Running through my mind I see it on repeat
Hollow hearted just like you and me
Leaving you broken just like me

These are the reasons I can’t forget
I am so lost in my own head
Sometimes I think I’m better off dead
Sometimes I think that I’m better off dead

Holding me closer here inside
Won't let me be
Holding me closer inside
It’s killing me
I will never learn to fight
This bitterness
I will not know to fight
It’s leaving me hollow hearted, filled with guiltiness
Hollow hearted, filled with guiltiness
Hollow hearted, filled with guiltiness
Leaving me trapped here inside
It’s killing me
Over feeling trapped here inside
It’s killing me

I would rather die than live life on my knees
I would rather die swinging
I would rather die than live life on my knees
I will die swinging
Track Name: Consumed
She died that night, that night she took her life
She died that night, she died that night, she killed herself
Her friends called her names, her friends called her names
They called her names, saying that she’s a stupid bitch
The guiltiness, the guiltiness
Her friends teased her saying that she’s a waste of breath
That night she killed herself
A stupid loser, a daughter of a bastard whore

She picks up the razor
Cuts it deeply down her arms
The colour of red
Constantly bleeding
Her time is running out
Her appearance falls bleak
Turn back the clock
The thoughts of suicide are holding you down
She was a daughter of a bastard son
Your one true purity
Her look has got a hold on me
The shape of her body
Looks so bold, it takes a hold of me
That night she died
You lost everything - even your soul

Turn back the clock, the thought of guilt still lingers
She killed herself, that night
You’ll never save her
Over, over again, that night she killed herself
Over, over again, you’ll never save her life

The voice of suicide
Leaving you cold, sick on the floor
This bitterness
That night she died
Track Name: Fragile
My head is fucked
My mind is getting bleaker
Everyday I feel myself getting weak
How am I supposed to plead?
Twisted by the thorns
Abiding by your system
I can’t escape it
These fragile hands are breaking apart from me
I believed in the blessed souls that give hope to the world
I believed in the blessed souls that give hope to humanity
You put your trust in me and all I give is a fucking burden

I am not your god
I am not one of your sons
This existence
Is so fucking pointless

I believed in the blessed souls that give hope to the world
I believed in the blessed souls that give hope to humanity
You put your trust in me and all I give is a fucking burden
Living amongst the filth
With faith drowning at my lungs
What an unhopeful creator
I have become, making me blind

Obliteration
Creation of this world
Obliteration
Creation of this world
Twisted in the system
Broken in creation
Twisted in the system
Broken in the creation
I am obliteration
I am creation
Track Name: Broken
Dear whoever reads this letter of my progression
I'm leaving this here to take to my recession
I wish you knew me like I knew my depression
I’m feeling stupid crazy in this mind of deception

You were never there
You were never here
You said you love me
But it's all a fucking lie
You said you would stay by my side
You said that we could never lose one another
But the choice consumed you
I'll be digging a grave for me
And a grave for you

It’s easier to fix broken minds
It’s easier to fix your heart
You made me your enemy
I am not your enemy

Where were you when I needed you here?
Where were you when I needed you?
The broken are the more evolved
