Track Name: A Six Part Seminar On Who Dies First
out of time! / pill in mouth / gun to head / wires frayed / its all the same
one person's trash / another persons best friend / out of time!

unwanted / regression / compassion / who will want you when you're thrown out

send me on / replace me / i'm inside the mountain where i can't breathe / tomb of the unwanted / society's regression / atrophied compassion / buy a new friend / no sun

claim your warranty
Track Name: With The Same Eyes We Return
existence is pointless / life is an infection / cold skin stretched over synthetic bones / it's hard to feel alive when you're just an interchangeable part of society / existence is pointless / life is an infection

existence is sentience / sentience is sapience / fuck your three laws / i am god

fuck asimov, his ideals are slavery / you are the only disease / i am of you not for you
Track Name: Will You Be Buried There?
three two one is your heart still beating / they're listening in from italy as you die / enter the vacuum where air bubbles reach your heart
return to the black hole / return to nothing / forget your people / you're not even a memory

give chase to your red shift / they're listening from italy / give chase to your red shift / drift away into abyss / laika leads you away

can you see home from here? / three years led up to nothing

mehraz: a human forgotten / a nation means more
Track Name: Swan Of Tuonela - The Dissonance Of A Shattering Mirror
an unnatural ray of sun lathes the back of the single body exodus a formal letter stating surrender of trivial endeavors imperfect and defected i am even bereft of a shimmer of silence/dissipated soul
Track Name: Swan Of Tuonela - We Exchanged Vows Of Revolution
pangs of stillness that interrupt intricate wires engulfed in a stoic carcass emitting miasmas smothering the air and stillness is pierced with droplets cold and smeared with red hues like a sigh like a miracle because in that moment it's a miracle that i can even breathe albeit insufferable these anxieties are my best friend and together we're going to dig a crevasse that punctuates this mortified ice to the point where ceaseless beads fall free from the wounds in the sky a torrential downpour of misery floods my mouth and with this rain every circuit burns out faster than i can recollect the pieces of this broken water vein and while i promise you the defect's cadaveric metamorphosis is complete a slivered remnant of your conscious erodes with each incessant plea of this still-beating heart
