Track Name: Charmer
End me like a sick dog. Lose my body in vain
Break my horse's legs. Store me in a vase

I'll flight my way out by teeth
Wave the stampede on with a flag
While you've convinced yourself of your existence
As the only form of life
Bestowed beneath the gift of grace

If I fire it straight through you
My only hope is that it finds its way back to him [x2]

If I said you were the source
I only lied to displace myself from the blame [x2]

You have nothing to be proud of [x2]

If I fire it straight through you
My only hope is that it finds its way back to him [x2]

I didn't feel the hate like this [x2]

I can't find the words, I can't let it go
Oh God, I didn't feel the hate like this

My walk in amazement to the kill
Caught in it's glory [x2]

My walk in amazement to the kill [x2]

My walk in amazement to the kill
As we are inert in our exalting awe

I'm not the jury or the judge
I am the gallows and the noose

I'll fight my way out by teeth
Wave the stampede on with a flag
While you've convinced yourself of your existence
As the only form of life

The only form of ... life
Track Name: Subverse
Lest I die in the flood, you'll never see me rest
Guilty masses of men, simply falling apart
Just stop and pick up your jaw (Just stop and pick up your jaw)
Been evading the shots that they make in the dark
Open up these graves so we can feed our... homeland

I...I'm putting up the fight of my life
Is it better just to lay arms and withdraw?

If there's war in my blood, genocide in my veins
Cut me open and run (Cut me open and run)
Doesn't matter which nail that it's under again
You can't hide it
The dirt is always going to... be there

I... I'm putting up the fight of my life
Is it better just to lay arms and withdraw?
I... I'm pulling on the end of my chain
How can these eyes burn clean?

Lest I die in the flood, you'll never see me rest
Lest I die in the flood, you'll never make it [x2]

You'll never make it [x2]

Be still, child unwanted
Raise up the cities where gods cannot walk [x2]

I... I'm putting up the fight of my life
Is it better just to lay arms and withdraw?

I... I'm putting up the fight of my life [x4]
I see the bull fall, I see the pigs mass
I see the burn off the parasites, all in single order
I see the hurt wolf, covered in insects
Just pray our ghost will learn to forget
I'm putting up the fight of my life
With the bird on my arm, the teeth still in my hand
I was raised in a house but I'll end this a man
We all stand in the water
We all brace for the dust
It's not enough
Track Name: The Incoherent
I shove my foot in my mouth and I kick myself to death
They all drink the wine that I send
But look at me like we've never met
This grin on my face is just the gold I found in the mineshaft working
There's not a single worm crawling this earth that would ever turn me down

You just dreamed you're dead and you forget to wake up
You would throw your life in the hands of just anyone
You just dreamed you're dead and you forget to wake up
There's no way to make a grave without digging one

Bring me the liars (ah)
Bring me the proud (ah)
Bring me the vein (ah)
But first, bring me myself

I shove the flask in my mouth and I drink myself to death
My bones always crack like when I walk
And I hear voices through my stress
I look through the bars of everything I own and every dollar spent
Know that you're only planting contempt out here if you bury me in the earth

You just dreamed you're dead and you forget to wake up
You would throw your life in the hands of just anyone
You just dreamed you're dead and you forget to wake up
There's no way to make a grave without digging one

(Incoherent and careless and fumbling
And worthless and apathetic and incoherent)

But these are the teeth of steel that'll lay you low [x2]

You just dreamed you're dead and you forget to wake up
You would throw your life in the hands of just anyone
You just dreamed you're dead and you forget to wake up
There's no way to make a grave without digging one
Track Name: Lamnidae
Another day is slipping away from us
Their kingdoms can't outlast the hopelessness we know

We're barricaded in and we're desperate
Eternity will never claim me from my throne

This is my last chance to pull out my teeth
Pull out all my teeth from my own tongue

As we push on... push on

Broke and relentless
Show them more heart that scars (show them more heart that scars)
Never give in
Stop holding the breath and star making your... mark!

And now I see what kept us from making it
We're holding to these deadweight hearts as we all sink

To me their human pride does not exist
To me their human pride does not exist at all

This is my last chance to pull out my teeth
Pull out my teeth from my own tongue

And what we had (push on) was always (push on) [x2]

Broke and relentless
Show them more heart that scars (show them more heart that scars)
Never give in
Stop holding the breath and star making your... mark!

Aim for the whites of their eyes [x3]

Aim for the whites of their eyes
The weakest hands have destroyed everything we worked for [x2]

As we (push on) [x2]

Broke and relentless
Show them more heart that scars (show them more heart that scars)
Never give in
Stop holding the breath and star making your mark! [x2]

Push on [x2]
Track Name: Hellish
My dreams are covered in ants
Wading in the pools of human blood
Set ablaze as we sat back and laughed
Why am I hunted by the guilt of my past?

Heave, heave
Gather the ore with our bare hands
Heave, heave
I'm unfit to be here

Still blood in the meat
So far out of reach
Still blood in the meat
And the carriage keeps on rolling over me

So far out of reach

My heart in covered in ants
Crawling on the scene of the accident
Locked hands pulled up by broken arms
We pass out and we never get up

Heave, heave
Gather the ore with our bare hands
Heave, heave
I'm unfit to be here

Still blood in the meat
So far out of reach
Still blood in the meat
And the carriage keeps on rolling over me

So far out of reach

The charred remains of the saints
Trapped in the glassblower's pipe
Chapel wall covered in communion

Rise up on the hillside
Raise the devil in the valley [x2]

Heave [x3]

Oxen heave [x4]
Track Name: Toro
I'm a ghost to everyone I love
A phantom. A banshee
The child on the roof after dusk
The first wind over the shipwreck

Come home, come home
My empty body is begging me to come home

I'm going to be the last one left
I'm going to kill every bull they send
You can't drive your sword in the heart
If it won't drop its horns and charge

My horse is trying its best to run
While its entrails follow in tow
I never made my mark
I couldn't carry you

Come home, come home
My empty body is begging me to come home
Come home

Blood on the saddle, blood on the ground [x2]

Entrapment.

Panoptic.

Exhausted [x2]

No promises kept, no offering breathing [x2]

No mercy is infinite and no infinite mercy is mine
All god's creatures will inherit their own hide

You have to leave me while you can
Don't obey me, don't obey anyone [x2]

Come home, come home
My empty body is begging me to come home
Come home

The hushed. [x3]

The silenced
Come home
Bite down
Come home
Bite down until it stops
Track Name: Backlit
We're the scraps left behind in ground zero
From the blast that came to collect on its debt
Blowing gale over the corpses
Over the hills that swallowed our footsteps

We kill the time as it was done to us
We point our hands in the shapes of guns and we time it

All washed out and fading in the foreground
The hammer draws back, go find your peace

We're... the great whale hooked and robbed of it's hide
As the jaybird watches yellow jackets close in
Gulf war, empty the beds of our fathers
Arms race, let fly the wolves in our hearts
Get up, get up, get up with 27 minutes left in '68 every day

Everything, nothing, me.
Everything, nothing, me.

We kill the time as it was done to us
We point our hands in the shapes of guns and we time it

All washed out and fading in the foreground
The hammer draws back, go find your peace [x2]

Nobody notices the cowards fall [x2]

Fall just like the brave [x2]

Nobody notices the cowards fall [x3]

Fall just like the brave

All washed out and fading in the foreground
The hammer draws back, go find your peace [x2]

Everything, nothing, me.
Everything, nothing, me.
Track Name: Hayseed
It doesn't matter if we ever unlearn this
It's still looking pretty bleak
It's still looking pretty dim
We couldn't keep ourselves from these painful habits

And never asking for more [x2]

I can't stop, I can't slow down
Moving towards the end
No faith, no trust, no hope
I can't stop. I can't stop

Just relax, I got a rope around my neck to break my fall

We are the flies trapped in a moving car
Helpless while we're searching for scraps
While we're searching for scraps
And we have watched you all exhaust yourselves underneath the entropy

A severed arm's length apart [x2]

I can't stop, I can't slow down
Moving towards the end
No faith, no trust, no hope
I can't stop. I can't stop

Just relax, I got a rope around my neck to break my fall

Wake up, do it again [x2]

They paved the road for us so we could break our backs
Our ambition tied the knot so we could clear our heads [x2]

Clear our heads!

I got a rope around my neck!

I can't stop, I can't slow down
Moving towards the end
No faith, no trust, no hope
I can't stop. I can't stop

Just relax

I got a rope around my neck to break my fall [x2]
Track Name: Deadringer
We both have walked as ghosts and we've done it for years
We saw everything, there's nothing to feel
Right through meat markets, gold pans, and the steel
They're using my hands, this is the work of man
Stand on the broken glass, spread out the fuel we need
And burn the machine that could have brought us back

You failed
You held a rose and clung with frozen hands

You failed [x2]

Can't fill the grave when the ghost needs to work [x2]

Push through the river, the cold is biting my heels
I see everything; I just can't feel
I'm my nation's wars, the body count's me
The beasts at the roots stalking my family tree
I watch my people in silence as they roll right past
The heavy footed steps destroy our sacred mass

I failed
I lost your bones
Can't dig them up with my hands

I failed [x2]

Can't fill the grave when the ghost needs to work [x2]

But I've come this for freedom
And I won't turn back [x2]

I've come so far
But I've come this for freedom
And there's nothing left
(But I too am America, and these riots within me)
Just can't keep going on like this

We failed
We let you starve and wouldn't stir these idle hands

We failed [x2]

But I just can't see you
I can't see you as anything but the ghost
(We failed)
It's just crooked world, man
(We failed)
It's been tearing us apart

Let's die right now
Die right now
And be content with what we've done [x2]
Track Name: Revenant
We've been leaving too many tracks
The last unit of the pack still seeks our bones
I thought that dominance meant more to these dogs

Stop dragging your feet
You want to end up like everyone else?
You want to end up like them?
You want to end up like everyone else?

This is my eternity, and I'm never backing down [x2]

Whatever made it easier for them to live

They'll feed themselves to death [x2]

I feel everything you've done is unspeakable
Dove wings were scattered about after the mass

No war song in my wake
You can have it all back
I couldn't aid in the hunt
You can have it all back

This is my eternity, and I'm never backing down [x2]

Whatever made it easier for them to live

They'll feed themselves to death [x2]

Hold your hands in the shape of a dove towards the light
And see my twisted body in the shadows

No matter how battered
No matter how many broken bones [x2]

I'll haunt what's left
I'll haunt what's left in the shape of a cross on the side of the road
In the shape of a cross on the side of the road

I'll haunt what's left [x4]
