Track Name: Electric
Concrete box builds the static
Languid minds curb the hum
Drowning in luminescence
Sowed the seed sits, lucid; hot

Enriched in lust and trial
Enriched in plot

Epigraphs elope with wrists of
The pure, insuffered strong
Plagiary, judged by the bellow of shadows looming at dawn

The seeds, they sow for gray
In meek shelter they prey
On polar conflict with the eastern break

Night, it's all electric
Night, it's all electric
Night, it's all electric
Night
Track Name: Cognation
Conviction draws nigh
It's calling
It's calling
It's calling

The gavels fly high
They're falling
They're falling
They're falling

Their palms are held high
Convulsing
Convulsing
Convulsing

Their palms shaded like
The sovereign
The sovereign
The sovereign

Admit your spite
Admit your hate
Admit your lust for succession
Honour the better man

Cognation
Cognation
Cognation
Honour our own
Track Name: Idols Of Charlatans
I won't turn on the television
I won't answer the telephone
The saints all around us
Lead cultures in vapid form

Idols of Charlatans

I won't heal the dying patient
I won't write their will, in gall
The saints all around us
Breathe murder on their souls

Idols of Charlatans

The idols on their own
The idols on their own

Their fashions guilt estranged
Their fashions guilt estranged
Their fashions guilt estranged
Track Name: Salem
The clergy, black and white
Serve their majesty
Puritans rid of blight
Hysteria of mass they seek

Would Salem judge their king
Would Salem judge their king

Wraiths of Parris strive
Their torches glow with creed
As civic mastodons
To maim humanity

Would Salem judge their king
Would Salem judge their king
Track Name: Listen
Nosferatu, follow the blight
The surgent mass cry in the night
Listen
Won't you listen

Walls of their minds deteriorate
Stalked by the wicked
Scratching the brick

Scratch, scratch
Against the brick
Scratch, scratch
Against the brick

Ail me
Ail me

The plagued will draw near tonight
Start running for your life
Run, run
For your life
Run, run
For your life

The nails that scratch at the brick
Alert the hoards, the hoards of sick
Listen
Won't you listen

Ail me
Ail me
Track Name: Prurience
Prurience
Feast upon the prurience
Comply, comply, comply
It won't hurt you
Comply, comply, comply
It will fuel you

Pleasure in disguise
Pleasure meant to chase
Pleasure as a crutch for libido's haste

Endearing link of mind
Euphoric in the bind
Of bodies that need not comply
Track Name: Effigy
Do you ever feel existential
How would you know
What if the hill you claim should fall to those you taunt
They never needed you
Never needed you
Never needed you you anyway
Never needed you

Your ghosts will light the flame to your effigy

Will the gallows fit the waist
Let them adore
The field
The fury
Inches from your sole
They never needed you
Never needed you
Never needed you you anyway
Never needed you

Your ghosts will light the flame to your effigy
Beg to their souls
As purgatory fashions chains forevermore

For when they’re taught
The hills you once laid claim
As languid brawn
Fall just to kings and queens in ecstasy

Jet black, in awe they stare
At the blood
Once red as their loving mothers hair

You take
You take
You take
You take
You take
A burning effigy your fate
Track Name: Bell
Horror screams the bell
Unlike the jar it breathes in perfect haste
It's palpitation yearns for lucid minds with limbs that seldom shake

Boarding dry with rhyme
Resent for glass, its trap able to restrain
Breath so rare, the boarding's flaw goes blind
For that air fuels rot
Reason died

The chime will never fade
The chime will never fade
The chime will never fade to the ears of its foes
In silence they will reign
Track Name: Return
How many times does sunrise wait on the innocent
I don't know
Sleep like the dead and they won't fear you anymore

How many times will their eyes make a point to stray
With trust
That they won't have to gaze upon the fallen anymore

Return
Return
Return to the world now

How many times will sickness be forgiven pain
I know
Know that the rust builds on the blade
Can you see its flaw

The pleasured mind forgets the rust will dull the blade
You know
Flesh it once cut won't be burdened anymore

Return
Return
Return to the world now
Track Name: Stave My Name
I'll take the time to pick your brain
Heed the grind that you make seem
Is a justification for everything

I won't change your mind with what I say
I won't right your wrongs
Stave my name

In time you will find they won't sympathize
Try to find your peace of mind by yourself
I won't help
I don't need to

Your crooked mind is just like mine
But I won't pity cry
Pity I don't justify
Unlike yourself
I don't need to

Stave my name
Stave my name
Stave my name
Track Name: This Time
I love you so much it's killing me
Killing time will never mean a thing
I'm not afraid I hope you feel the same
Tell me so

Never been sure about a single thing
Thorn in side I know you feel the pain
I'll rip yours out if you'd do the same
This I know

This time
This time I need you

This time I need you more than anything I've ever needed
Killing time will never mean a thing
This I know

This time
This time I need you

This time
This time I need you
More than anything
Track Name: Message Rouge
In rank halls you walk alone
Sick with abstinence
Livid cries; livid smiles
A scent of sterile is a home
Tainted love remains
Pick the petals; keep them safe

As bloom wilts all heathens call
Feed for the rouge remains

Keep them safe
Keep them safe

Fair hearts will never moan
They won’t cry in vain
A message for the hallowed sane

As letters to the voices scream alone
Never cry once
They’re trained to see the void
Those sacred petals kept in lock won’t perish

Never say fall
Never fall
Never fall
Never fall
Never fall
