Track Name: A Poisoned Well
How far have you gone to reach me
When my dial tone is all you'll ever get?
I'm one with the earth beneath you
Never thought that I'd grow to forget
That my dark skin
Is a blood curse
Born from
Age old
Rituals
My dark skin
Pulls free from my bones
And takes with it my love
The earth
Was calling me, holding my hand
As it sucked me in
The wind
Of your words. Felt warm enough to give me life again.
The glow from the sun gives hope to those who pray
But that glow couldn't save me
Violent endings keep the dead
Dissociate
And take away
The pain
Something is missing here
Your touch is a memory
I'll try to find a way to
Forget what you mean to me
What's a life without love?
Where lovers aren't meant to be?
I'll always hang onto this just
Please don't hang up
Track Name: Southfield
Maybe when the sun sets
I'll get some rest tonight
I've been seeing lines
In the night sky
That feel like you
and all the things we used to do
I digress
Second guessing every moment
guess it'd be unwise to let you stay
In my dreams
In the sleep
I can't ever seem to keep
When there's no more paradise
No more souls to sell
We'll use our dead
To build a wall of bones around ourselves

I can't forget the silence
When I heard your name
On the radio
It took everything within me
To break free
Just to feel reality
And find a way to fucking breathe
I am pathetic
Lover
I am nothing
We are broken
I am falling
Father
I am choking
On the sorrows
Of regret
Child
Were you hoping
For a father
In the flesh?
Thinking about
Everything
And every word
You said to me
Track Name: November Skin
I could never forget
The first time
That i saw your glowing eyes
Looking back at me
In your mother's arms
On the hospital bed
"Daddy's little girl"
Isn't a figure of speech
When you're the only one that I got
And i'm losing you
To some dark skinned kid
On the other side of town but
Despite my shame
I feel the same way
About you
Just promise me you'll stay
I could never forget
The last time
That you turned your back on me
At the funeral home
By your mother's casket
Helpless I am
You made a little mistake
When you told the doctor
To call the house
With your big announcement
Godless daughter
I can hardly breathe

I can learn to forgive you
But I'll never accept him
Filthy blood
Won't get the best of me
There's a voice in my head
Screaming "purity"
So I close my eyes
And beg the skies to
Cleanse me
Track Name: Earth Rune
Cold dark skin
Christened the soil
The worms rejoice
In a vulture's art
Cold dark skin
Christens the earth
The vultures rejoice
In a crow-like sacrament
Where do you want it?
Where it hurts the most
Willow vines grasping my
Ever tender throat
Well I tried
I tried to hold on
Well I lied
I never tried at all
I can't seem
To get it right
Left behind
I'm falling to pieces
The blood moon is setting over me
The roots all reek of apathy
If soil bares the birth of man
Then I am home once again
Join the earth
I devolve
I descend
Join the earth
I devolve
I descend
I am home once again
Track Name: Moonlight, Snow
When you look at him
What do you see?
An empty vessel
Is it filthy?
When I look at him
What do you feel?
Your hateful disguise
Is it real?
But you just had to have it all
Didn't you?
I was meant to fall
Did you take some time to think
About the light of your life?
Before you took away
My everything
I may never love again
I take to my grave this
Burden, Suffocating, Me.
Seeing signs
In black and white
And I can only hope
That i'm dreaming
Of your suffering
I may never love again
i take to my grave this
Burden, suffocating, me.
Now i'm onto you
And the blood on your hands
As it starts to make sense
My chest begins to pound
Against the frame of my ribs
My lungs then start to dance
To the beat of your sins
And my palms perspire
What kind of sick fuck of a man
Would make his daughter suffer?
For his own sadistic plan
My legs, growing tired
And i'm getting weak
All of these memories
Are cutting out of me
In a show of violence
And morning sickness
Complete defiance.
Did you take some time to think
About the light of your life?
Before you took away
My everything
I may never love again
I take to my grave this
Burden, Suffocating, Me.
Seeing signs
In black and white
And I can only hope
That i'm dreaming
Of your suffering
I may never love again
i take to my grave this
Burden, suffocating, me.
I Will Never Forget
I Will Never Forgive You.
Track Name: Grief Seeds
I've got a plan
A cure
For the cancer
I'm gonna spill
My guts
At the altar
The taste of blood on the tongue
Is right where I belong
The heart of a guilty man is inviting
Birds of prey
Seek and consume
Gods of death
Watch them devour
I can't sleep
And I won't eat
Until i bury my hands in his fucking chest
Rip it all out and corrupt what's left
Wear them home and start again
Seek and consume
You will
Pay the price
Join my lover
Just be a good boy
And pay the price
Track Name: Hang Up
Life sets in
Bloodlines corrode
Loved ones leave
Drag their bones
Life sets in
Bloodlines corrode
I killed my son
And dragged his bones
To the creek where they met
I made a new home for my misguided child
Then I left him alone
I can’t take much more
Guilt creeped up to settle the score
I just had to protect our lineage
From something as vile as this
Life sets in
Bloodlines corrode
I killed my son
And dragged his bones
To the creek where they met
I made a new home for my misguided child
Then I left him alone
I think I’ll come clean
I’ll spill everything
I tried to forget
I want to forget
I am seven miles away from a good night’s rest
Still I’d rather rot in silence than repent Leon’s death
As I stumble through the snow on the way their front porch
I am overcome by fear at what awaits behind door
I can hear two voices screaming
I turned the knob and slowly crept inside
On the kitchen floor he’s kneeling
And she’s there behind him with a kitchen knife
She puts the knife to his throat
“I demand an answer”
Lowers his head in prayer
Then I cut out the cancer
Did i cut out the cancer?
