Track Name: Anxiety
Anxiety buries me, dulling my eyes and collapsing my throat
Feeling this way has ruined me
No release
Disgusted at the thought that I’ve become a shell of a human
Consumed by terror and grief
Mental patterns destroying me
Paralyzed by the fear of waking up another day
I breathe deep, I shut my eyes,
It doesn’t go away
Track Name: Hostility
Violent desires find expression in my every move
Begging for any excuse to lash out
Walled off from useless compassion
Fists clenched in silent prayer to the red god Wrath
Succumb to primal lust for hostility
To wound the flesh of the living is to know life
To harm is to make oneself whole
Let their blood flow freely
Let silence descend
Let blood flow freely, let silence descend
Repressed anger, boiling over
It won’t be long before I’m punishing myself and others
Natural order, someone always suffers
Better you than me
Track Name: Anhedonia
Life without pleasure, mind without empathy
Longing for the willpower to end this agony
Gratification denied, sensory lobotomy
Hollow and devoid of feeling, the wind wails through me
Beneath my skin I rot away
I’ve become a rancid leper sloughing flesh
As the sun drifts in circles like a vulture overhead
I decay internally
Doomed to pain for all my days
Until the silence takes me away, suffer endlessly
Track Name: Woe
Life’s appeal fragmented and shattered
Forced to swallow through my fragile glass throat
Venomous regret eats away at my flesh
Soulless wretch descending guideless through hell
Heaven and earth in ashes ending
Day of wrath and doom impending
No company
Doomed to flames of woe unbounded
Majesty of life unfounded
Transient souls in pain are we
Contorting in agony
Joy will never last
Woe reveals the path
Transient, in pain are we
Praying for death’s release
Joy will never last
Eternal descent
