And then there was silence Said the drowning man As his lungs filled up He grabbed my hand And he pulled me down Into the drink Where rapture sells And the wicked sink And then there was silence Said the dying man His skin turn softs With a heart of sand As it pour out and cracked the ground He left this place - without a sound And then there was silence It came from you and me We stared at each other Though we could not see The only difference between us and him Is a thing red line - stretched out way too thin And after all is said and done As our eyes blister from the sun What's called so soon is here at last How could I've known - it come so fast And then there was silence Whispered the choking man Gasping for air but we Could not meet his demand With eyes now empty We could not make sense Who was this dying man Left here in silence? And then there was silence...

Brumal 05:30
It's gray and cold Knee deep in snow The ash drifts in The end begins People float by Dead leaves don't lie Mistakes we made Drift off - we stayed The road is bleak Instead we seek Shelter inside Ourselves we hide The sky turned red Our eyes just bled Our hearts stay cracked Hardly intact Hold on let go Of this - you know We are shadows Adrift and so We hope we pray No luck they say There is a dream Now lost obscene Chorus: And when you see them coming from the other way You better run and hide They can smell the fear and desperation And will eat you alive The land looks stark Wiped clean and dark The light drowned out Air thick with doubt The silt on top Of guilt - forgot The man he's gone No plan - so long What have we come to? What have we become? What have we done here? Everything under the sun We have done this before We have been here before If there is something more Then I want to see it CHORUS The feeling's brumal - I'm feeling brumal It's getting brutal here Substitute the faithful for fear Throw another piece on the spit Think you can get away with it The asphalt faces won't forget frozen in a black tide CHORUS

In Furnace 01:41
The devil came a'knockin At my door Out collecting souls And wanting one more He queried ," scuse me sir but do you have a price? A lustful fantasy or perhaps a vice?" I laughed when I said," Where shall I begin? For life, to me, has always been an act of sin. Ain't nutting you can do I haven't done myself. So why don't you go back to hell for someone else." And with a devious smile Mephistopheles said," You've alone this whole damn time - I'm all in your head."

Misplaced in the lost and found Discovered i am unsound Trapped in a rubber room Back and forth on the ground I stagger just left of sin they took all my medicine And left me here far too soon I tried but cannot move The angels hold their breath And slowly comes their death Our soldiers that we trust Turn to faces of ash and dust If you are so divine Then cut up another line On the pedestal in which we fall Keeps us dancing in alcohol CHORUS: I can feel it taking over Something's better left unsaid I can see it in front of me All my heroes are dead Behind the last silhouette Comes lost hope and regret When the figure in front of me Is the image I used to be All the dreams are obsolete Hand over the sweetest treat Our disease we pass between Will make our plans complete The hate which we define In there sewer of our minds The stench will fill the air With the feelings of despair CHORUS We will take your fear You will be like us Cold alley dreams Chalk lines sordid themes Hands caressed with sweat Laughter and your screams If I could live with doubt Would you shut them out Unraveled monkey suits Selling absolutes And we say 1 2 3 4 CHORUS

Monster 05:00
So I saw you there moon drenched from head to toe Covered in the blackest blood and bathed in a sinister glow I could make out every stitch on that milk white patchwork skin Anticipation stole my every breath - so let's begin Your slab or mine - be cruel to be kind All the sex that we save - for the shallow grave I got my body bag - you got your wiggle and wag So let's do this right - and light up the night We're howling and crawling and kicking and screaming and laughing and gasping and biting and bleeding We're creeping and sneaking the pleasure's we're seeking are seedy and greedy oh boy are we needy CHORUS: She is my monster baby - and I am her walking dead My southern rebel belle - on a ride to hell The bolts in her neck - leave me a wreck And like a head shot baby - I'm about to explode Like a head shot baby - I'm about to explode POP 3 sheets to the wind - off Trioxin and formaldehyde Preserving the moment as we preserve our insides We'll take our decay and tear it away We break and we fray but We're here to stay Because forever ain't a thing Unless you got yourself a partner in crime - that's right We're howling and crawling and kicking and screaming and laughing and gasping and biting and bleeding We're creeping and sneaking the pleasure's we're seeking are seedy and greedy oh boy are we needy CHORUS Your slab or mine - be cruel to be kind All the sex that we save - for the shallow grave I got my body bag - you got your wiggle and wag So let's do this right - and light up the night CHORUS

Fumes 04:15
Sticks and stones my dear I know that all too well The same ol same ol broken bones Are easier to sell The engines sputter to a stop The brakes just plain give out We push the junker into town Abandoned with our doubt CHORUS: I breathe in the fumes it makes my head float like Helium fever dreams You catch the next train out of here I know just what that means Dust may settle at my feet Forever in my eyes Wipe my memory clear of you The what who where and whys To be alone to stand by this I stand with my thumb out To catch a ride to the next town Start over with my doubt CHORUS Sticks and stones again my dear Will mend when still abused Don't play no violins for me The end I still refuse I'm not to blame for this oh no i'm not the one you see But I remiss this open cyst I'm not the reason for your tragedy CHORUs

Come on just smile - we will defile Served on a slab - soaked in denial This great delusion across your face The fate you hate is what you make Come on and pray That he will stay Your pariah baby Just for today CHORUS: Oh just shut up behave Easy to be a good slave Better seen and not heard I won't utter one word Don't you like what you see Become my tragedy Are you not having fun? Guess I'm the only one I see the white lines Behind those eyes Selling words to me As a disguise In the pleasure Of fascination All we have done Is a simple crime A corruption a twist of fate You twist the knife into my spine Your sordid dream my caustic mind Yearning still to find my thrill CHORUS You are what you create I am what you infect In fact I'm nothing less Once more now let's confess CHORUS

Rust Jesus 04:31
Now to unwind this mortal coil With dime-store books and snake oil Let's geek the hens - grab the nails Down in the shed - it never fails Bring him from the brink of lust where Children whisper hymns of dust Pray you Pray me Pray you Pray me Amen The messiah comes in messy dreams so bring him now to mend our seams that what he means or so it seems CHORUS: Trust in me I believe Rust jesus Set me free Down in the swamp we build a pyre Out of twigs and pious liars On his throne he'll raise us higher Than all the sinful heathen choirs Ashen skin and hair of silt Our savior saves us from guilt With hands all cracked which suppurate Seeping through a life of faith We stand in awe of our facade Fall to our knees and pray to god CHORUS I need the tetanus to secure my place as his right hand I am his anger and his vengeance everything he commands I feel the spirit taking over this husk of a man I'll lose control and sweep the dregs from this poisoned land And what I do and what I say and what touch goes cold These empty sockets contain nothing but blackened coal The light that fills me hollows me out leaves a gaping hole Seeking deeper into nothing I reach out for my soul Trust in me I believe in Trust in me rust jesus I decay I like it this way And still I pray To rust Jesus CHORUS

I feel overwhelmed by you This smile becomes unclear It ticks down slowly like a bomb Destroying what you said my dear How can you claim that this is bliss When we find comfort in our pills We come down harder every time From our candy-coated thrills Take two before every meal Take two more so can deal CHORUS; Let me relapse Let me collapse With all the picking at the insects beneath my skin I'll see you twitching lying back on the floor again Let me relapse Let me collapse The feeling's hollow but I don't know what else to do I can be twisted with nobody else but you I try to scream but nothing Stumble right down the hall Broken is what I found you Some creature on the wall We spiral into madness You know I'll join you dear No hope to find redemption Your crisis keeps me here Take two before every meal Take two more so you can deal CHORUS Medicate me Damaged baby CHORUS

Critical - in your thinking that The wires cut - right - through the fat It's easier - than that - pesky bone But meat is butter - when we're alone When we're alone CHORUS: You hurt me once but let's pretend Start all over and begin again The silence is - a subtle slight You used to be - so soft and polite I don't think - we'll make it through the night We'll keep those red stains - out of sight CHORUS Lay me out Take me in Wrap me up Begin again Turn me over Cut me deep Throw me against the wall Let the laughter seep in Let the laughter seep As I slip deeper into you

The first breath hurts As if it were the last And the future that I missed Is lost in the past You were the hand of god At least that was your claim All the lies soaked right through I guess I am the one to blame You found progress in my shame And left me wanting more I can't forget the pain I've felt so much before Although I'm new to this I'm feeling aged and worn A child lost to apathy And born to the unknown I'm feeling fake inside these walls But real enough for you My test tube mind and carbon heart Falls apart it's true This human form I think is mine Will prove dead - dead in time I'll fade away just like you and then But what is left inside this mind Hush now baby it's time to go to sleep They know what's best for you Hush now baby it's time to go to sleep Let them replace the loving womb You were the hand of god At least that was your claim All the lies soaked right through I guess I am the one to blame This human form I think is mine Will prove dead - dead in time I'll fade away - just like you Then what is left inside this mind Hush now baby it's time to go to sleep They know what's best for you Hush now baby it's time to go to sleep Let them replace the loving womb Hush now baby it's time to go to sleep They know what's best for you
