1.
Pictures with stagnant cancer Images of brutal man Vasecting, seething, despising Beaten red faces extreme Run the streets, find the lame Red hands grasp at the air Drowning faceless contest Propagating physical force Watch your thoughts drip from walls, injure, destroy Watch your thoughts drip from walls, injure, destroy Watch your thoughts drip from walls, injure, destroy Watch your thoughts drip from life to gratify, why? Onlooking innocent silence Naked mental violence Forced to kneel in the gutter Displeasure confined to a room If strength were exchanged for weakness Your dominance for pain Would walls be built for protection Or would your victims be named? Watch your thoughts drip from walls, injure, destroy Watch your thoughts drip from walls, injure, destroy Watch your thoughts drip from walls, injure, destroy Watch your thoughts drip from life to gratify, why? Watch your thoughts drip from walls, injure, destroy Watch your thoughts drip from walls, injure, destroy Watch your thoughts drip from walls, injure, destroy Watch your thoughts drip from life to gratify, why?

Catharsis 05:31
Watching the hit, I feel calm Crying and blood, try smell harm Back I go this mode of mind, you see me nice you see me kind My eyes strain, a blatant stain, this bloody picture, failing to scare Can't touch it, it goes through me Can't feel the hit, all I do is see The two sides of me, this square of glass Watch from a distance, and let it all pass
3.
Inflamator 03:50
Gripping the sweat in my hands, your voice makes my ears bleed Desperate, self consciousness, in this room there is no air Broken, you cover your burns Questions I feel the hate in your mind, cutting me Scared of rejection starve me, with your perfect lies Persuasion, it will fail you need force to make me beg Appointed power in your head, can't allow these attitudes
4.
Landfill 03:48
Hate, I hate, you motherfucker Drown, bleed, I wish you would
5.
Skin Grip 05:19
Stimulation, walk tall, retention, arrogance, your ways, diseased Plastic and skin adopted, a lowered compulsion abstract Stop and start bright image, you adopt your animal desire Your burnt out head is narrow, eyes accept the bond Unclean, obscene, burnt out Paper and flesh concented, the following is blind Malignant scent of picture, refuse form turn page Reason obscene indulgence, exert force on stained
6.
Eye 06:02
Tears in my throat Fear in my eyes We drive, we drive
