Track Name: Embrace Eternal Poverty
To forget where I am right now would be a novelty.
Surrounded by glass cages in the stare of death’s suppression.
Designed to fulfil at any cost, condemned to obey.
Your abyss gazes inwards and gives birth to new life, alien and unrecognisable to the untrained eye.
Engage the cycle of repetition; perpetual networks of arms bonded together by mutual hatred and linked chains.
I was never anything meaningful to you.
I was never anything at all.

Maybe I could have been anything, but that’s been left to your choice since I was born.
My place is in ignorance; a subtle contempt for the spoils that I breathe.

I cut out my veins in the name of a new future.
To think that I once had love for you drives me to newer nihilistic depths.
One day, this death will prove the point that I have never lived.
Another statistic to pin up on your indexed catalogue of learning experiences.
Running on a rusted hamster wheel to infinity or total deprivation.
Wires snap and sever the few tendons I have left to rely on, one by one into monotone sunsets.
Welcome to my new form, mute, paralysed, resigned. Yours.

All hope
Cry out


I bled in front of your eyes while you said nothing at all.
I gave my everything to be what you told me was right.
I’m standing in the blood that I’ve shed in my grave; a hall of dreams cast to the wind.
You hail me as a hero but you know inside I’ve failed.
I’ll never forgive all the pain that you’ve caused through ignorance and sustained lies throughout my years.
You could never become something, so I’m forced to become nothing.
Gouge my eyes out and let me see again.
I’ll kneel down in redemption and gorge on your hate.
Now you will shine, pure, while my remnants decay.
I hope you’re happy with your own creation; I hope you live to see what I become.
As all I remember burns away, your voice is all that I have left.
A voice full of hate and despair, an endless cave of agony.
Thoughts of mass murder permeate the air, a total disgust for the human race.

One day you will learn from your mistakes.
Track Name: Corpse Dragger
I won’t
Can’t feel
Your god
Won’t save
Dead lives
Mass graves of fucking scum

Lost hope
False thoughts
End point
No time
Resigned; you’re fucking scum

Punch below your weight
Redeem your fate

You’re all fucking scum

Thrown in the mire, you’ll sink like the rest
Now worn and vapid, you’re death; blind at best

Now rise up, worthless
Track Name: 29
Blind frustration highlighted through seas of neon and raw despair
This is what I endure for a taste of how you care

Vision wanes as we draw the line

Suspended in the podium firing line, mute audience tranquilised
How does it feel to be 29 in Vancouver, where languages combine?

Vision wanes as we draw the line


Close off the night and the truth will return
We’re empty and void in a sequence with death
Were those fleeting moments all I'll ever have in some reality that I’ll never live?
Track Name: Turn Against Them
You lie
Now broken
They gleam
As you choke
They shaped you
Can’t fit now
They raped you
Turn against them

Your corpse
Now burning
Last rites
In advance
They scraped you
Garbage now
They failed you
Turn against them

Faded, you fall
Burned hope rescinds
Track Name: Abuseless
Can’t trust pain
Fall the same
Build your cage
Dead inside
Use your fist
To exist
Light the flame
Now desist

Mark your grave
Chosen slave
Worthless gold
Feed the lie
Aimless bray
You’re on display
Burn what’s left
End the play

I am abuseless
Buried in the hate you crave
I am abuseless
You will not be saved
Track Name: Severance
I’ve rejected your concept of life
To forge my own path in flame
Distanced from the ether
An emptiness in decay
And all your quests to re-begin
Are only hopes that died within
We’ll tread the same endless paths
Never to see the end you claim

You cannot save what you’ve destroyed

Failed redundance
Don’t know where to start
Through eternal winter
We’ll depart
Track Name: Paths To Transcendence
I’ll burn myself away, my ashes for the sea
Here I’m miserable with a penchant for agony

Another Sunday spent writhing in despair
Staring into the blank; I can no longer care

As the chapter arrived at a close, where we lay suspended, fractured beyond repair, on a terminal journey to absolute nothingness, your eyes finally connected with mine.
As I stared within on these final, puerile moments, I noticed the same contemptuous, spiteful glare from decades before.
Death had reaffirmed your absence of life.
What was I ever to expect?
Track Name: The Sum Of Our Parts
The sum of our parts
Bereaves us every time
We'll fade into the darkness
It's how we choose to shine
