Track Name: Sphinx
I strangle
Claws that bite, jaws that catch

My sphincter
Contracts enough to fit you in

I riddle
Words that kill, voice that plagues

What creature
Goes on four and two and three and haunts you in your...
Track Name: Walking Corpse
Accomplish nothing with your life, give yourself a hand
You wanna spend your twenties in a never never land
You're every bit as shallow
As those you claim to hate
I say it's time to pull the plug,
Do not resuscitate

Non responsive, walking corpses
DO NOT RESUSCITATE

Accomplish nothing with your life, give yourself a hand
You wanna spend your twenties in a never never land
You're every bit as shallow
As those you claim to hate
A slave to pointless drama
It fills your boring brain

Twenty-five and no real problems
yet you're too much to bear
Change your group of friends
more often than your stupid hair
Steeped in iconography,
you bathe in your own spew
Haven't got a reason for anything you do!

A walking corpse put out to stud,
you're sucking up my air
Track Name: S.M.O.E.
Medicine won't help me
There's nothing you can do
I'm a sick man
Through and through

Banal
Useless
It always gets me down

I'm a sick I'm a sick I'm a sick
I'm a sick I'm a sick man

Used up
Bereft
Devoid of value

Feeling disconnected
Ill at ease
I'm a sick man
Consuming disease

(Domestic Sisyphus)

Running around the hamster ball
Chinese fingertrap
Can't help but pull
Track Name: Marred View
My view is marred
can't see past my own head
My view is marred
it's all familiar ground
My view is marred
hole on a neck

Experience
No thanks
Experience
Is perilous
Experience
Useless
Experience
Is pointless

My view is marred
I live inside a cave
My view is marred
imprisoned in a pit
My view is marred
theatre of shadows
My view is marred
stop knocking

Hole on a neck
