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

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

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

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

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.

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

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?
