Deadweight 04:32
Evening coastline beckons me Weigh the confines of the seven seas A final sleep, deface tomorrow Wade to the deep, soften the deathblow Saline air ambience, descend in the dark Solitude transience, herein disembark Insensible movements, black water burns Erie obeisance, slow motion roil Squalid memories, deepening blue Release of agony, here waiting for you ---- Guitars: Adria, Candy Bass: Debbie Vocals: Adria Music: Adria, Debbie, Candy Lyrics: Adria

Palomine 02:55
Is this our exaltation Heart skips to think of you Another year in deviation Pull the quilt and fade to blue Débarrasser le plancher! Is this our revelation The leaves are dying too Frigid air, no absolution Nothing left here to pursue Pedant! Is this our devastation Swiping screens in this black milieu Listless living, memoir in motion Another day calls death unto ------ Guitars: Candy, Adria Bass: Debbie Vocals: Adria Music: Candy, Adria, Debbie Lyrics: Adria

Lost Girls 03:10
Splintered eyes To paralyze In the moonlight We have insight Some hearts are old Our hearts are cold Black as night We burn in sunlight Lost Girls Lack no agency Walkin down your street Show no hostility Dress so morbidly Crack the locks On the box Don’t be misled We date the dead No time for hate Break the gate Fuck with us? We decimate Lost Girls Walkin down your street Walkin through your cemetery Make no apology Dress so morbidly ------ Guitar: Debbie, Candy Bass: Adria Vocals: Adria Music: Adria, Debbie, Candy Lyrics: Adria

Infidels from the West, nobody will miss Machine guns loaded, cracking bronze fire bliss Death to devils, not of our kind Hatred to lure, delusions of mind I’ll die for my God You’ll die for my God We’ll die for our God Yaweh be damned Wind blown deserts make perfect graves Sand drifts quickly, hiding your face Pleads of mercy with every breath No soul in sight to witness your death Rope tied tight, pressure applied Terror screaming loudly, leaks from your eyes Drawn and quartered, blood soaks the ground Intestines pulled from your lifeless mound You'll die for my God I'll die for my God We’ll die for our God Yaweh be damned ------------ Guitar: Debbie, Candy, Adria Bass: Adria Vocals: Adria Music & lyrics: Adria

ACAB 01:44
White trash cop still walkin free On a killin spree A wary demon stirs inside of me Rage inside Black and blue boys kill again Panteleo! You fucking racist bastard He can’t breath! He can’t breath! Subjugate, suffocate Close your eyes never look away Resuscitate, obliterate Close your eyes never look away Another victim falling down They did no wrong Serial killers wearing black and blue Gun pointed at you Fifty casings on the ground Legalized murder!!! Another white cop walkin free Fuck the police All Cops Are Bastards All Cats Are Beautiful ------------------------------ Guitars: Adria, Candy Bass: Debbie Vocals: Adria Music: Adria, Candy, Debbie Lyrics: Adria

Memories 02:39
I died twenty years ago, or was it a wish I had nothing to live for, no Valentine bliss In utter despair you called out my name Walking outside in the pouring rain Standing alone in the pouring rain You left me here to die I left you there to die I hate you I miss you I hate you I wish you were dead We worshiped each, other in nightmarish scenes with no happy endings, like all of my dreams Careless persuasion, my love did soon wane I stood in despair, drenched in cold rain You stood there standing in the frozen rain I left you there to die You left me there to die I miss you I hate you I miss you Get out of my head!!! ----- Guitars: Adria, Candy Bass: Debbie Vocals: Adria Music & lyrics: Adria

Incurable disease on the day of rest I'm walking on water in a sea of incest I've got the image of Jesus embedded in my chest I can't leave home without my bullet-proof vest Killing myself for the perfect honeymoon Fighting with scorpions tied 'round my neck I hear the pitter-patter of a killer on the loose Children use their fingers instead of words Crosses burn our temples on Slaughter Avenue It takes too much time for me to say I refuse Time is digging graves for the chosen few Children dig the graves of me and you Describe the illness, I'll prescribe the cure Start your two-day life on a two-day vacation Describe the illness, I'll prescribe the cure Start your two-day life on a two-day vacation Spiritual cramp going for my ribs Those gangsters toting guns are shooting spikes through my wrist Children use their fingers instead of words Fingers bury children under the boards I can die a thousand times, but I'll always be here With the powder skull secrets of forgotten years The hangman's noose is drenched with bloodstained tears My hands are the killers that confirm my fears Jesus won't you touch me? Come into my heart Where the Hell are you when the fire starts? On a mission of the father to reduce the gates of Hell The ivory bone-eyed mother's flesh is starting to swell I'm setting twenty-two tables for the funeral feast Satan is by far the kindest beast ------------- Guitars: Adria, Debbie Bass: Candy Vocals: Adria Music & lyrics: Christian Death (R. Williams/R. Agnew)
