Track Name: Emasculate
Give up on my lifestyle and dreams
Enter into an alluring duality

It's a feature not a bug
Swimming in the mainstream is so much fun
Go through the motions of domestication
As I embrace my emasculation

Do my part and behave
Smile and wave
A well-liked undead

Give and take
It's taking more each day
Give and take
I compromise my life away

It's a feature not a bug
Swimming in the mainstream is so much fun
Go through the motions of domestication
As I embrace my emasculation

Give and take
It's taking more each day
Give and take
I compromise my life away
Got to reclaim myself
To get some go again
I don't resent you
But I got to find my way again
Track Name: Misery Greets You
Choices
Consequence
Hard to
Foresee
Don't know
Can you cope
Being this free

Break or succeed
Crippling uncertainty
Are you man enough?
Can we trust you not to fuck this up?

Pressured
Stressed out
It eats away
Misery
Greets you
To opportunity a slave

You know what you got
But not what you’ll get!

Break or succeed
Crippling uncertainty
Are you really man enough?
Can we trust you not to fuck this up?

You don't know what you want
So this is what you'll get
A nice big nothing
Facing a dead end
Track Name: Slow
Wrong size peg
My life's an eyesore
Should have been extinct
Since long before

The rules have changed
But they won't change me
I'm a contradiction
From another century

Ain't gonna lie
I don't like your world
You want me to shrug
While chaos unfurls

The rules have changed
But they won't change me
I'm a contradiction
From another century

Slow

I'm slow and stupid
Don't get your memes
But you can't tell me that my mind's not free
Track Name: Bloodloss
Marked for death
Deterioration begins
Unable to cope
Vision grows dim

Sick and tired
Confused
Feeling sucked and abused
And bled

Sensing utter disgust
At this unbearable world
As the blood from the holes everywhere
Into horrible gutters whirl

Mixing with sewage and slime
In the dark corners of earth
The red
The red

World of mouths and teeth
Sharp and never not speaking
Open and shut involuntarily
Gnawing tearing letting bleeding dry

Bloodloss
Emptiness within
Drifting from a mindless life

World of mouths and teeth
Sharp and never not speaking
Open and shut involuntarily
Gnawing tearing letting bleeding dry

Bloodloss
Emptiness within
Drifting from a mindless life

Drifting into the reapers icy arms
Track Name: Sönderfall
Katatoniska barn i smutsiga rader
Täckta av aska, damm och skit
Pekar bort mot stormens öga
Säger: vi vill färdas dit

Sönderfall
Track Name: Railway Spine
Iron horse strength
And crippling force

A constant searing pain

Engine is fed
There is no remorse

Goners they transport
Fuel for future wars

Scholars disagree
There's something wrong with me

A constant searing pain
Spinal fluid death rain

Hysteric absentee
Is there nothing wrong with me?

But you can't stop progress
And the machine rolls on
On dead horizons chaos looms
As pistons pump and pain persists
The fire burns
To consume the world
