Decay 01:14 video
Spend all you can, Shop til you drop, Nothing’s forever, Why bother stop? We’re all gonna die, Buying feels good, The urge to spend, Can’t be withstood. You stroll past some dumb shit, Charge it to the card, You go grab some more shit, And feel like a star, You do it again and again and again, Til the pain goes away, The more that you have, The less you decay. And I’m still trying to know why. Shop til you drop to stay alive, Shop til you drop until you die.

Expectation 01:01
You are nothing without your god, You are nothing without your gun, You are nothing, You are scum. Put on your costume, Patrol the streets, Prey on the helpless, Because you are weak. You are nothing, You are scum. I know who you are, Sitting alone at home, With a gun in your mouth, I wish I could be there to hear the motherfucker go BOOM, To hear the motherfucker go BOOM. You are nothing, You are scum.

Deny the truth, Accept fear as your true god. Pray all you can, We’re all out of time, Prepare for the ultimate demise. No hope for you, No hope for them, The clock of life, Has reached the end. Put up your walls, Hoard all the food, Stockpile as much as you can. Learn to accept, What you can’t see, Learn to accept, Darkness as king.

In A Void 01:53
Led down a path designed to destroy, Drained of all life and deprived of joy, Starving for a taste of something to feel, Begging to exist in something real. Screaming in a void, Darkness redeployed, Laughing in a void, Sadness redeployed. Live to die, Die to live, Struggling just to exist, In a world designed to destroy, Drained of life and its joy. Screaming in a void, Darkness redeployed. Live to die, Die to live, Drain the life of all it has to give. Live to die, Die to live. Live to die, Die to live.

Desoultry 01:56
Pressure, Skull is caving in, Brain won’t work, Mind can’t think. Pressure, Crushing the soul, Flailing through life, Trapped in a hole. Blurry sight, Chest is tight, Hard to breathe, Hard to exist. Pressure, Skull is caving in, Brain won’t work, Mind can’t think. Blurry sight, Chest is tight, Hard to exist, Hard to breathe. The absence of mind, Can be a crutch, And mine is broke, So I need help, Just to get up. Just to get… Blurry sight, Chest is tight, Hard to breathe, Hard to exist. Just to get up. Just to get… Blurry sight, Chest is tight, Hard to breathe, Hard to…
