Album: The Hollowing 
...i NEED and it's never-ending.|
(who am i? wasted. who am i this time? (wasted) i REGRET every moment
and i mourn every piece of memory that i've lived this way
( why should i try? otherwise...who am i? this time) I NEED and i can
only give myself the strength to look the other way. (why should i try?
otherwise..who am i this time?)GIVE ME ELECTRICITY.. given my life
to sacrifice, nothing left to call myself. caught up in my purpose,
can't seem to get what i want what i want can't seem to get what it is
that i want.i said, he's on the left, she's on the right that leaves
me no place to go. i'm BURIED under layer after layer after layer of
device WHO AM I? (wasted) who am i this time? who am i? wasted. otherwise,
|In The Shadow Of The Sun|
(the horizon closed down..) what did you see before the world went dark? |
i know i have no home now, (no place to hide) . my home is in your space,
STRANGER.(no place to hide) the edge of the water cracks, and you can see
they all have the same face. BROTHER , is there room for a sister now that
your bed is gone? DESTROY DESTROY DESTROY..Brother, friend is foe, and life
is a struggle to survive. BROTHER. DESTROY. STRANGER...(like dust and we
fall and we fall and we fall... the horizon closed down.) what did you see
before the world went dark? i know i have no home now. give me some place
to hide. no escaping the HORIZON. no escaping the WAR. brother, we are HOME.
(the horizon closed down).
|Fires Of Sorrow|
...(you're so pale.) the lines of your eyes are weathered. your broken arms |
can hold me no longer. (you're so pale) now i'm falling down faster. can't
see the ground yet, buy i know it's cold and wet. i see you in every cracked
line. you haunt me while i chase your ghost i can't seem to catch
you. (i just can't face your grave) you're lost in the darkness, you cannot
hear me. i'm lost against the background, wherever i look you can't be found.
the shadows fall around me and i can't see where i want to go because because
because( YOU'RE SO PALE AND DEAD) (i just can't face your grave) release me
let me go..
|Vision And The Verity|
...met up with my soul again on a cold dark road. it got tired of me a long |
time ago.(so i've been living alone) do you know what it is to be dead like me?
can you feel what it is to be dead like me? can you feel what it is to be?
i cut out my heart just the other day. held it in my hand, said it doesn't work
that well anyway.( who need blood coarsinf through veins..this is the stain of my
father's shame) this body is ravaged by disease and dispair-
i just wanted to get away from there.(who needs blood coarsing through veins..
this is the stain of my father's shame) i'm tired of feeling so weary and old
so tired so hopeless so lifeless and cold. (i can almost mark the day when
my soul began to fade away) no longer scared of the ghosts i used to see-i'm one
of them, they're just like me.( i can almost mark the day when my hope began to
fade away) down on the road i saw a dead man. said, dead man, you look a lot
like me.(who needs blood. who needs shame. from my father all this came) so
i picked up the dead man, put him across my back. said, dead man,
we're going to fade away into the day..departed my soul again on a cold dark road.
i'm bleeding this time for no reason at all. i just miss the feeling of losing it all |
SO USED TO IT
(i am the cave of life and death and the blood thatmakes the clock tick i didn't ask for it)
felt so hollow had to dry up and out my skin to hold my insides in. I'm
SO UNCOMFORTABLE but the skin holds the decay in. scraping the pins along the skin,
release the decay within. (i am the cave of life and death and the blood that makes
the clock tick i didn't ask for it) DISEASE... your flesh dancing to the drum of rot.
( rhythm of disintegration) one battle, two with death. came and pulled me out
by the breath. (doesn't make the pain of living go away. don't want to face the world today)
DISEASE..used to fight with death several times a night, facing that brick
wall choking for my life. we got to be good friends, death and i. i'd never give in
and he'd never lie..scratch till i pop up a vein, feel the hollow walls sucking air
that'll never get anywhere.(when this chemical lung gives out i'll be living at
my body's mercy. until then, i'm living at someone else's mercy)
|Sleeping The Wicked|
find a lost man lost in his loss of control. find a lost man get lost in his loss of control. |
become useful for the use of the user. become the dog bone then chew your way out.
her way into the game is to ride his wild dick. get close to me then maybe you can be me.
(FIRE) find a lost man lost in his loss of control. forget your own. forget your own
displacement.her way into the game is to ride his wild dick. get close to me then maybe
you can be me. so base in the basement of your body..you stink. fill her so she can feel
wanted, so she can fill a purpose. (FIRE) make a habit deceive me tell a fucked up story
be showered with pity (FIRE) i feel nothing for you . i am nothing like you. bred a victim
born again a warrior, now i just don't care about the war (FIRE)
(fire is the colour of my eyes. burns straight to the inside.
|Surviving The Siren|
(on beaches of bone the siren sings. and you cover your ears, |
but it's the song you used to sing. there's no escaping as you are pulled into the sea...)
and he said, i'm gonna sail my ship away from this shore. can't feel my soul within
me anymore. so he followed a song he heard within his heart. it was bound for
disaster right from the start. (he's gonna get it) after just one day into his journey
he was well off course-gave in to the easy way out. then he came to his senses,
towed in a line of regret. but it was too late- he was caught in her net.
(he's gonna get it) (woe is me. well, i asked for it. this is what i deserve. well, i asked for it...)
wait till we get outta here, he yelled to the captain. then we'll get our freedom back.
i'm trapped in the stare, he said. i've gotta get my soul back.
(woe is me.well, i asked for it. this is what i deserve) i can't take my eyes off of her.
if i can't have her no one can,because i'm the man. (woe is me.well, i asked for it.
this is what i deserve) i'm gonna wring your neck, gonna wring your neck i'm gonna
gonna wring your neck neck neck..now the ship's going down. we'll wreck upon the rocks,
and we'll be fed upon.(woe is me. there's no escaping) i'm scared and i want outta here,
but i can't turn the ship back. (woe is me.there's no escaping) i take full responsibility,
he begged to the captain. i couldn't keep my dick in my pants. (there's no escaping..
on beaches of bone the siren sings. and you cover your but it's the song you used to sing.
there's no escaping as you are pulled into the sea.)
|Take The Low Road|
... in all this time i have learned that no one speaks my language. i learned long ago that i walk |
alone. (i don't believe in me) what can i say, 2 days dark and grey, and not much different from
yesterday. i hate what i am, not much more pleased with what i've become. used to close the
door and sleep away the days ( i don't believe in you) what can i say, time is the enemy. it makes
me empty. it is the thief of me..so i went to the big door and asked the old man for a favor
(SHOW ME A BRIGHTER DAY) down here in this mud where i'm stuck
(felt a ghost of myself running away) (SHOW ME A BETTER WAY) i hate what i am.
not much more pleased with what i've become. used to close the door and sleep away the days,
but i've come to face the day when my childhood was taken away. these movements of
displacement say: yesterday will never be back again. (build a wall around inside out.)
i won't let me out. i won't let me in. caught up to my knees in mistakes.
|Discipline Of Degradation|
seething in this red world i am nothing. thrown to the roadside i carry the death of the desert |
on my skin. have you looked into these eyes,feel the cracks in my hands..from soul to skin i am
dry (and i am alone) i eat gravel, shakes in my stomach to drown the voices in my head. the
sun's too far away and you don't notice. crawling, i am worthless ( and i am alone)
...one and two and i see 2 faces below me and i see yours in both, but one is open the other is closed...
(there is no dignity, there is no grace, and i am alone) seething in this red world i am nothing.
sold to a false hope, now i just float along in this dead ocean (there is no dignity, there is no grace)
and i am alone in this dead ocean.
