Track Name: shame
i wa born in shame
with hunger like a flame
to consume anything

i was born in shit
i smelt it all my life
i can never wash it off
Track Name: look at my knife
look at my knife
look at my knife
look at my gleaming fucking knife

i might cut you
i might cut me
i might cut all my ties

look in my eyes
look in my eyes
look in the violence of my eyes

there's enough ugliness to break my spirit
there's enough ugliness for all the world
Track Name: order from chaos
i was a fool to think the world was just and good would triumph in the end. when the truth unfolded i was changed, and i'll never be the same again.

i was a fool to try to from order from chaos. i was a fool. i was a fool.

i made a path thru life all my own and now im thoroughly lost. i believed in good and bad, i believed in right and wrong...
Track Name: thinking man is doomed
bone gets pounded int o soft goo
assumes a blob like shape
taught to be stupid
beat into submission

man believes what he's told by reptiles
there's no other truth
a thinking bone is weak
a thinking bone is doomed

man is dismantled a piece at a time
broken into little bits til he don't make no sense
Track Name: i fucked up
i fucked up
now it's you and me against the world
mask comes off
it's scary beyond belief

i'll concede you could squash me like a bug
i'll concede anything
Track Name: criminal
i harbor a criminal inside
i'm just biding my time
one of these days justice will be mine
cause i harbor a criminal inside

got fucked with by too many cops
that's why i got no respect for your laws
one of these days i'll cross the line
cause i harbor a criminal inside
Track Name: taser blues
i was taught a lesson
finally zapped awake
and i always thought that i was safe

they're lurking in the dark
they're lying in wait
they're looking for any reason to dominate

cops are not yer friends

i've got the ugly taser blues
melting my shoes
face down on the ground
lying in my own mess
Track Name: don't worry
don't worry
i may be prone to fits
and i've got a weak heart
and a weak mind
but don't worry

my soul may already be rotten
and i don't know where i went wrong
it's in my blood
it's buried deep
but don't worry
