Track Name: Split Hate Ender
He try to get you down
He's only just a split hate ender
If he can't help it
He sees it darkly, love, as it were
Track Name: Something Genius
Vile to the core
She talks about how the world in awe only bows to her goads
She got the know how
She got the know how
She's got the hold

Some say she's gimp
It's all about how the world in awe bows to her goads
She got the know how
She got the know how
She's got the hold

Everybody pull out your name
Put it over an open flame
Everybody for an even goal
Everybody better watch your step
Track Name: Little Minnow
You can rest my little minnow
It's a sign, you're a natural
Piss it off and I'll let it go
Let you go, they'll find out
Watch out now

You can rest now little minnow
It's a sign, you've got to let it go
Piss it off, you're a natural
Pull your hair
Make you come back home

You'll find it's a hack
Your one true love
Is ashes and dust
Track Name: Cracked Ice
Frostbitten blood vessels
Circulatory empathy
The tiny strands that reach to never
Atrophy in their heart
Hate the devil
What he said
Hate the devil
Cause he won't tell you why
And for who

Saunty head
Spades for two
It's leaving, get on, get on
Gouging through to the moon's eye
It's leaden too
And I'll tell you why
And for who

In a fever for something new
Spills her colorly in a gilded hue
Little did she know that she couldn't go back
With heathens too

I'm not over you
If you ask him, well he said that he might too
You'll forgive my blind apery
Track Name: God as the Devil
In your lips and your eyes
They move all around
You lonely little dove
They'll make you turn around
Cause you run with the devil
He knows who you are

Well, yeah, that's necessary
You know it's necessary

Lonely little dove
Where you go, go, go
Lonely little dove
Chill, chill

Track Name: The Fool
Don't want to celebrate
The words are taken from your mate
It's running through your brain
Forever tethered to the sky
I don't need someone to blame

I don't want another girl
Don't want another girl, oh

Don't want to celebrate
I'd follow you into your grave
But you sow your seeds again
Make sure the angle is just right
Now I need someone to hate

I've got a little trick for you
A little trick for you, oh
I've got a little trick for you
The edge has sharpened all the more

I could have loved this time
No, it's too old
Ichor of the lonely kind
Patrons of cold intentions inside
Track Name: Bichii
Your turn, Your turn to say no
Feel his bite
Personal goads
Mister c'mon, could we have a bit of soul?

Say, weather's little bit sunny but he looks sad
Red curtain's rising soon
But hey, you'd better not feed my eyes away
I couldn't stop us dying

Fall in line
We used to get old
Wanton nights feel so low
You couldn't hide
They know where you grow

And you say, "Oh"
You can't but say "Oh"

Oh, I've got to go sleeping in this world
I couldn't stop us dying
Track Name: Why Where You
For esprit de corps
On which you could have relied
I guess you didn't know
Makes you feel raw

It's out
My right
I fold
You'd sell it out the door

Don't wait
Your kind is aural
Free my bones
It couldn't be long
Your soul is mine
Mined to belong
Mind my hive

You said, you said I don't want you
You know what I am
You could, but how could I say no?

Oh, if you're alright
We'll come into town waiting to sleep with the wolves
Cause you're my own

You were my lover
I said you're a whore
Don't go
Don't creep in my head
Track Name: Badlands
You frailed up my heart
From the very start
You hold onto the things you admit
You couldn't have harmed

By the skin of our bones
We made it out alive
Back from our homes
