Track Name: Constant Crisis
Everything is
A fucking mess
Brain is fried
From the stress
Aim is true
But it’s all amiss
In a constant
State of crisis

Constant crisis
Mind’s always a blur
Constant crisis
You know that you are
Constant crisis
Constant crisis

Can’t quite seem
To get a grip
Feel unstable
Start to slip
Don’t know what
This feeling is
Can’t name what’s wrong
In a crisis

Constant crisis
Mind’s always a blur
Constant crisis
You know that you are
Constant crisis
Constant crisis

Always at odds
Nothing is right
Just being useful
Is a fucking fight
So you lay in bed
Completely lifeless
Better than
A state of crisis

Constant crisis
Mind’s always a blur
Constant crisis
You know that you are
Constant crisis
Constant crisis

Makes sense
In a world like this
Thinking thoughts
You can’t dismiss
Pain’s too much
Numbness entices
Escape from the
Reality of crisis

Constant crisis
Mind’s always a blur
Constant crisis
You know that you are
Constant crisis
Constant crisis
Track Name: Just This Once
Just this once
Just this once
I tell myself
It’s just this once

Just this once
Just this once
I tell myself
It’s just this once


Just this once
Just this once
It’s never
Just this once

Just this once
Just this once
It’s never
just this once


Just this once
Just this once
I wish it was
Just this once

Just this once
Just this once
I wish it was
just this once


Just this once
Just this once
I tell myself
It’s just this once

Just this once
Just this once
I tell myself
It’s just this once
Track Name: Blood on your Hands
Sharpen the knives
Fear the dead
Sharpen the knives
Fear the dead
La sangre

Sharpen the knives
Burn the dead
Sharpen the knives
Burn the dead
La sangre

Sharpen the knives
Bury the dead
Sharpen the knives
Bury the dead
La sangre

Sharpen the knives
Awaken the dead
Sharpen the knives
Awaken the dead
La sangre

Sharpen the knives
Raise the dead
Sharpen the knives
Raise the dead
La sangre

Sharpen the knives
Worship the dead
Sharpen the knives
Worship the dead
La sangre
Track Name: Already Dead
I show myself
I run and hide
I close my eyes
I run and hide
I fall asleep
I run and hide
I am not there
I run and hide
I clear my throat
I run and hide
I cannot speak
I run and hide
I say too much
I run and hide
It’s not enough
I run and hide

I build it up
I run and hide
I tear it down
I run and hide
I face my fears
I run and hide
I try to fight
I run and hide
I don’t believe
I run and hide
I cry and cry
I run and hide
I know my name
I run and hide
I am not her
I run and hide

I run and hide
I run and hide
I run and hide
I run and hide

Where did you go?
She went away
Where did you go?
She’s dead and gone
Where did you go?
She died, she died
Where did you go?
She run and hide
Track Name: Take It Back
What you think, what you think
Well, it could be anything
What you think, what you think
It makes my heart sink

Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last
I wish you’d fucking
Take it all back
Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last

What you see, what you see
When you, when you look at me
What you see, what you see
Don’t have to say I don’t agree

Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last
I wish I believed
You’d take it all back
Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last

What you say, what you say
Like a hand across my face
What you say, what you say
Like a cold embrace

Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last
I wish I could tell
You to take it all back
Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last

What you hear, what you hear
My objections of fear
What you hear, what you hear
Make me, make me disappear

Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last
I wish I could make
You take it all back
Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last

What you want, what you want
Is nothing, nothing that I got
What you want, what you want
Is a cruel, cruel taunt

Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last
I wish I could make myself
Take it all back
Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last

What you do, what you do
I do, I do not want you to
What you do, what you do
When it all pushes through

No, you weren’t the first
And you weren’t the last
Now I know
You’d never it all back
Wasn’t the first
And it wasn’t the last
Track Name: Nothing At All
I am not grateful
I never was
Trying to survive
Within your laws
Against the greed
And the sprawl
What do we get?
Nothing at all

Your talk is vile
Like your cause
Say it loud
Without pause
Say it proud
I’m still appalled
What do we get?
Nothing at all

Think we’re weak
If we drown
Blame us
If you hold us down
Kick us again
If we fall
What do we get?
Nothing at all

Given nothing
No security
But a false
Sense of surety
No one to help
You’d have us crawl
What do we get?
Nothing at all
The years add up
Add up to shit
Can’t see through
Can’t wade through it
You wanna build
A fucking wall
What do we get?
Nothing at all

Keep us out
Keep us in
Keep us afraid
In our skin
Build it up
Build it tall
What do we get?
Nothing at all

Not any worse
Always been bad
The privileges
You’ve always had
Closed doors
And meeting halls
What do we get?
Nothing at all

The future belongs
To those who take it
You’ve taken it all
No mistaking
What happens next?
It’s your call
What do we get?
Nothing at all
