Track Name: Silicone Deity
Verse 1:

Eyes, Hair, Lips, and Teeth.
What you’d give to watch her sleep.
Back and forth across your mind.
You are lost, obsessed with lies.

Sit and stare, at her face.
Magazine clippings all over the place.
Gossip, fame, secrets you chase.
Who has become the real head case?

Chorus (X2):

Why you want to watch them?
They don’t care for you.
Why you so obsessed.
With everything they do?
Why you care so much for
A silicone deity?
Strutting back and forth
In front of your TV.

Verse 2:

Now you are, in head deep.
Boundaries broke, full on creep
Churn and Churn the thoughts like clay
What will we find out today?

Is this all your life’s about?
Desires unheard, to which you shout:
“Don’t you know, I am your fan!!”
“Please can I just touch your hand?”

Chorus (X2):

Why you want to watch them?
They don’t care for you.
Why you so obsessed.
With everything they do?
Why you care so much for
A silicone deity?
Strutting back and forth
In front of your TV.

Break:

“Did you hear what she did?”
“Did You?”
“Did you hear what she did?”
“Did You?”
“Did you hear what she did?”
“Did You?”

Spazz Part:

They’re Lies!!
Track Name: Barrel Chested
Chorus:

I
Don’t understand
Why you destroy
What you create

I
Don’t see your point
Burn down your home
Cause you’re annoyed

Verse 1:

I sit and watch in disbelief
As they come running down the street
What do we do, do we run?
Do we fight or just retreat?
Here they come, screaming their taunts
Hateful mob, we know their wants
Run as fast as I can turn
They want to see this whole place burn

Verse 2:

Hiding behind a dumpster
I hear the mob coming closer
What the fuck do I do now?
Do we just let them all allow
To destroy what we sweat
Blood and Tears and this we get
Pull the plug and close my eyes
I’d rather die than watch this rise

Bridge:

No!!

I’d Rather Die!!!!!

Chorus:

I
Don’t understand
Why you destroy
What you create

I
Don’t see your point
Burn down your home
Cause you’re annoyed
Track Name: Plastic Knife Fight
Verse 1:

A constant struggle to find substance
When all I feel is numbness
and negativity towards people

A trouble to formulate the words
It’s coming out in slurs
and misconstrued until we are no more

Verse 2:

A question, I simply want an answer
You, counter, cry, and pander
to every simple-minded fool, GET OUT!

Bridge 1:

Get out, Get out!
It’s time for you to leave
Get out, Get out!
You won’t let you proceed
Get out, Get out!
You won’t let you achieve
Get out, Get out!
GO!

Bridge 2:

Get lost, Get lost!
You don’t have what it takes
Get lost, Get lost!
There is no time to debate
Get lost, Get lost!
The time has come and you're late
Get lost, Get lost!
Go!

End:

YOU’RE LATE!!!
Track Name: Splice The Mainbrace
Chorus 1:

Splice The
Mainbrace
Lie To
Their Face

Verse 1:

It’s all so simple
They can be bought
100 pounds
No one will talk

Remove a bolt
Pull out a pin
They’ll never know
We write the rules to this game

Bridge:

Switch them back and forth until we trick them all into our gain
We have interests to protect and we will put her down the drain

Chorus 2:

Splice The Mainbrace
Don’t Leave A Trace
Splice The Mainbrace
Keep A Straight Face

Splice The
Mainbrace
Put In
Its Place

Verse 2:

We are so sly
We are so keen
We must protect
What we have seen

They’ll never know
They’ll never learn
They’ll never show
Any Concern….

Bridge:

Switch them back and forth until we trick them all into our gain
We have interests to protect and we will put her down the drain

Chorus 1:

Splice The Mainbrace
Lie To Their Face
Splice The Mainbrace
They have no case

Splice The
Mainbrace
Put In
Its Place
Track Name: Darknet Side Effect
You're
Caught
In the darknet side effect

You're caught in the dark web
Fighting like bulls first sign of red
Credit card info rapidly spreads
Runaway train dead ahead

You're
Caught
In the darknet side effect

You're caught in the dark web
Despite everything you've read
There is zero chance to embed
Runaway train dead ahead

A slave to your device
Ignoring its critical advice
Locked away in your room
Waiting for social network to bloom
They have your information
To sell to corporations
Bankrupt thrown out on the street
Left to eat dumpster meat

You're
Caught
In the darknet side effect

You're caught in the dark web
Fighting like bulls first sign of red
Credit card info rapidly spreads
Runaway train dead ahead
Track Name: Closest Faith Burner
Intro:

She’s the victim of a crime
But she blames herself
Counting on a revelation
That he’ll behave himself

Verse 1:

You get off on the control
You holler then you console
You’re the king of your castle

She will sure hang in with you
She will do just as you do
She will just stay black and blue

Bridge:

Embrace, a happy ending
Conspire, it takes its toll

Verse 2:

You say you love her so much
You say you just need her touch
You love in your every punch

She is always on the edge
She knows that you are caustic
She is stuck as your hostage


Ending:

Scream!
Smack!
Repent!
Repeat!
Track Name: Detnohumiliation
Intro:

Move up, step back.
Move up, step back.

Gone!!!

Verse 1:

You
You think you have it all
Locked down
You have a long term plan
Til’ they
Walk through the office towards
Your desk
And walk you straight out the
front door

Verse 2:

You
You don’t know what you’re going
to do
You had a plan and now
It’s screwed

Screwed!!

Chorus:

Move on up! Step back down!
Move right up! Step right down!

Verse 3:

Well
You’re in a real tough place
to be
You played the odds man
one, two, three
Track Name: Roach
(Intro)

Roach!

Verse 1:

Live your simple life crawling like roaches
Feeding off society drowning in your oceans
Frightened when the lights of reality flick on
Numb to the dark terrified of the dawn

Chorus 1:

You're a roach scattered with no memories
You're a roach hiding from your enemies
You're a roach infecting your sick disease
Polluting your stupidity breathing with your neck squeezed

Verse 2:

Running in circles not knowing where you're supposed to be
Rambling on about non existing philosophies
Approach the ones who seem to hate you the most
Manipulate and use until you find a new host





Chorus 2:

You're a roach scattered with no memories
You're a roach hiding from your enemies
You're a roach infecting your sick disease
Polluting your stupidity breathing with your neck squeezed

(Intro)

Verse 3

The world won't miss you when you're dead and gone
Sneaking past life assuming you did nothing wrong
Slithering through the cracks that help you survive
Stomping on this bug you'll seize up and die

Chorus 3:

You're a roach scattered with no memories
You're a roach hiding from your enemies
You're a roach infecting your sick disease
Polluting your stupidity breathing with your neck squeezed
Track Name: Cold and Calm
Verse 1:

Cold and Calm
You’d even blind the weak
Cold and Calm
You’d even mute the meek

Verse 2:

Smug
You just smile
Shrug
In denial
Smite
To the mind
Trite
You’re to kind

Verse 3:

Snared
In your trap
Paired
With the scrap
Scared
To react
Squared
...and then cracked

Chorus 1:

Cold and Calm
You live for the deceit
Cold and Calm
You nod, you smile, you cheat

Why can’t you look me in the eyes?
Face to face is not the place to hide.
Why can’t you look me in the eyes?
Face to face you’re not the guy that’s wise.

Chorus 2:

Cold and Calm
Hide behind the screen
Cold and Calm
Frustrate into routine

Cold and Calm
Manipulating trust
Cold and Calm
Thrown right under the bus

Why can’t you look me in the eyes?
Well oh well, you want to be allies.
Why can’t you look me in the eyes?
I am not the least of bit surprised.

“Is there any reason you feel you need to be such an annoying manipulative asshole!? I mean, really!? You must have a mental disorder to want to be that mentally combative all the time!”
