Track Name: Awash With Monotone
I want to feel the colours flow and swell,
But I’m awash with monotone,
Greyscale dreams alone,
Salivating at the planet’s sadness,
Cumming at the thought of dying,
Fuck me till I’m drunk,
Fuck me till I’m sober,

Does it matter that much to you?

I don’t know, it seems so,
Pale tones, pain flows
(Not telling you all)
That I don’t have that much to offer you,
I buried all my dreams to appear new,
I pray to gods of nothing all the time,
But I don’t have me either

Sometimes we have to run when we want to stay,
Vacant eyes a million, million, million miles away,
Laughing at the thought of wishing,
Cumming till we’re cold and crying,
Fuck me through the dawn,
Fuck me till we’re older

Does it matter that much to you?

I don’t know, it seems so
Pale tones, pain flows
(Not telling you all)
That I don’t have that much to offer you,
I buried all my dreams to appear new,
I pray to gods of nothing all the time,
But I don’t have me either

Not telling you all
That I’m awash with monotone,
Greyscale dreams alone
Track Name: (I Plan To) Starve (On You)
I found a deeper place to be
I found a swollen fruit, I plant a seed
I taste forbidden skin, I hold it tight
I know this ancient rule, a sacred rite

You’re only making this clear to me now
It’s just a courtesy how
You’re only taking what’s dear to me
You don’t even want it
I plan to starve on you

I’m gonna make a sound
I’m gonna let you down
I’m gonna live underground
I’m gonna kneel and let you kick me when I’m down
You know, know, no
Hit me, harder, make me…
Track Name: Ribs
Terrified of open eyes
I wish myself apart
Anyway
The distance aint that hard
It dampens something new
Predation, I’m engorged
Anyway

A world of second guesses
I’m a mess, I get it
I pay my debts and pass by

Terrified you won’t come down
What if we stay like this, stay like this
Motionless
I feel you burn against my palm
I’m calm

Hold onto cold lent,
Grasp at my strings end,
Lucidly,
Watch me unravel,
As I pace sombrely,
Stay for me,
Soft air of your calm,
Deep hues of your rage,
Predatory,
Streaming with old pain,
Confidently porous,
Let me fall in love.

On a silver road there’s nothing underneath
Pull over, I’ll let you feel me
I want that too
I’m horrified of failing
Not meek enough to mind
Don’t mind it’s so misleading
I’m leading, I don’t mind

I can see my ribs
It’s nothing new
There never was much of me
So kiss my weak, embrace my fragile
My fragile shell, my flesh and bone

Terrified you won’t come down
What if we stay like this, stay
like this
Motionless
I feel you burn against my palm
I’m calm
Track Name: Soju
Unfold thy soul, remove thy casing
Your bones moan, a long enticing
Home for the malice in my veins
For the devil in my…

Remove thy casing, bones
I bled the content, moan

Weaker than the pulse, forget to breathe
Is your skin warm to the touch
Or are you cold-blooded, serpentine
Just like me
A home for the malice in my veins
For the devil in my…

I haven’t seen the film but I read the book
Mild, aroused, profound
I painted over faces, their sordid looks
I bled the content, I was fed the words
Bones, soul, moan
Mild, aroused, profound
I bled the content, I was fed the words
The words
Track Name: Ermington Escape Plan
I don’t know what to do, ignore you
I don’t know what to say to keep away
But all my clever thoughts dried up
It’s not enough, enough

Tear me away
Take the sail I once had
It’s obvious you know
Praying to a god I don’t know

Pawing at the pieces that I broke
Pawing at the scattered shards of guilty
I miss you with clumsy words, a mumbled verse
But all my clever thoughts dried up
It’s not enough, enough

I scavenged, I crawled, I scraped
It’s not enough
I lashed and flailed, I purged and failed
It’s not enough
Pulled into dormant fears
I marched along the years
I don’t deserve this
I deserve this

Don’t give me a chance at all
I can’t be trusted

Turning ever gracefully on pirouette
Your back to me
Turning ever gracefully on pirouette
You back to me, the scene repeats
Track Name: Destroy Myself // Holy With You
I thought I cut myself today
But it wasn’t me, it’s not mine
Oh my god it hurts to say
Slivered mind and mindless spiders through my spine
I lit a fire to wash away
Okay, okay

I search inside myself today
But that was someone else’s story
I was too tired to look away
Like picking flies and sickly contracts

Grasp the end of the wire
Unravelling
All it takes is a no,
I always knew it would

I swear If this goes on much longer I’m gonna throw myself of a bridge,
I’m gonna take these veins to the skies,
Destroy myself, holy with you
Track Name: And Crushing
Show me where the coal fumes kiss the sun
Walk me through your empty town at midnight
And forget everyone
Cold beneath the black of dying stars
Wonder at the phantom light
Look how small we are

I’ve made my mind
Fall to the depths of your eyes
They’re beautiful and crushing
You’ve noticed my voice
Fall back in line this time, I know
I’ve taken vow

Take me to your empty halls of stained glass youth
The ocean moon, I’ll hold your wrist
Forget about the truth

We’re flotsam in the maelstrom
We’re driftwood in the flood
Fragile, soft, eroded
A glimmer in the mud

You’re cold, not whole
You’re old, your soul
I’m poison, I know
I can carry that piece on my own

I’ve made my mind
Fall to the depths of your eyes
They’re beautiful and crushing
You’ve noticed my voice
Fall back in line this time, I know
I’ve taken vow

But you are not here
I know where you are
Pull harder this time
No
You’re all
You’re all
We’re all
Lies
