1. These Cities, Our Graves

We are dying
We are diseased
We are the cancer that's killing these streets

We are dying

We are diseased

We are the cancer that's killing these streets

2. The Walking Dead

I watched myself dying

Choking on this fucking pathetic consumer death

 

My eyes are burnt

And my tongue is cut

And I’m lying

In a pool of my own blood

Coloured black from this parasitic poisoning

 

Coloured black because I hate myself

And I just opened my eyes

To see I'm sitting still in darkness

This world is fucking shit

 

This world is not mine

And I can’t rise above this filth

Dragged back down knee deep in shit

I'm fucking drowning

 

Go

 

Choking on this fucking pathetic consumer wasteland

And I'm buying

I bought it all

I bought my freedom for $9.95

 

And I don't feel a thing

I don’t feel a thing

I don't feel anything anymore

I don’t feel a fucking thing

I don't feel anything anymore

 

Are you searching for something?

Never feeling quite complete

Are you searching for something?

Never feeling quite complete

 

No one knows what they want

Who they are

Or where they are going

 

Because there is no answer

We're already dead

Already dead


 

3. Hollywood

Hollywood is the rotting heart of

A decaying nation

And this heart won't stop beating

Until we burn it down

 

Silhouettes, streetlights

You're killing yourselves

Just distractions

 

You weak motherfuckers

You're living your life on your knees

You weak motherfuckers

Modern culture is disease

 

You ain't living

You're just killing

You ain't living

You're just consuming

 

Hollywood is the rotting heart of

A diseased population

And this heart won't stop infecting

Until we burn it down

And this heart won't stop beating

Until we burn it down

 

You weak motherfuckers

You're living your life on your knees

You weak motherfuckers

Modern culture is disease

 

You ain't living

You're just killing

You ain't living

You're just consuming

 

And this heart won't stop beating

Until we burn this to the ground

 

​And this heart won't stop beating

Until we

Until we burn this city

To the ground

 

​And this heart won't stop beating

Until we

Until we burn this city

To the ground

4. Show Some Heart (Go Vegan)

The weak are getting weaker

And the youth are dead or pacified

You're living your TV dream

While innocents are bred to die

 

I'll take a stand for those who can't

I'll scream for those who can't speak

I'll take a stand for those who can't

I'll scream for those who can't speak

 

Go

 

Caged and slaughtered

A life of misery

Just to line the pockets

Of rich companies

 

While we suck at the hand of

Media and corporations

We grow fat and sedated

We kill and destroy

 

Our life is (go vegan) over consumption (go vegan)

Our life is (go vegan) over consumption (go vegan)

 

Caged and slaughtered

A life of misery

Just to line the pockets

Of rich companies

 

While we suck at the hand of

Media and corporations

We grow fat and sedated

We kill and destroy

 

​The weak are getting weaker

And the youth are dead or pacified

You're living your TV dream

While innocents are bred to die

 

I'll take a stand for those who can't

I'll scream for those who can't speak

I'll take a stand for those who can't

I'll scream for those who can't speak

 

Go vegan

5. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

What has this become?

A loveless parade of inhibition?

 

A lack of morals

And respect

Now I'm a lover

Never a fighter

But this shit has to end

 

This shit has to end

This shit has to end

 

A lack of morals

And respect

Now I'm a lover

Never a fighter

 

Show some respect

 

You’re still a whore

Nothing more

Nothing less

You’re still a fucking whore

 

You’re still a fucking whore

Nothing more

Nothing less

You’re still a fucking whore

Nothing more

Nothing less

 

Keep your dicks in your pants scum bags

 

Keep your dick in your pants

Keep your dick in your pants

 

What has this become?

A loveless parade of inhibition?

 

A lack of morals

And respect

Now I'm a lover

Never a fighter

But this shit has to end

6. The Birth of Tragedy

 

We are all fucking diseased

A cancer rotting in these concrete tombs

We built the cages

We joined the chains

Now we lie motionless in these cities our graves

 

As soon as I opened my mouth to breathe

I was choking on the irony

There’s no salvation left

I tried to find it

 

In a lovers’ eyes

And in them I saw this city ablaze

The tragedy we play out

Our lives burning

 

Like the crosses we cemented on the hillside looking down on us

A reminder of the disease that flows like blood through these streets

 

This is the age of hate

No second chances

This is the age of hate

No second chances

 

I live a life of spite

And that’s alright

And that’s alright

And that’s alright

 

I made my choice and I will fight for my convictions

I made my choice and I will fight for my beliefs tonight

 

7. (Not Even) Silver Bullets

 

After these years of running against their walls

My body is bruised

I'm bleeding

 

My mind is numb but kept alive my hope

But hope for what?

A fucking revolution?

Our fucking salvation?

 

The sun has already set on the ignorant years of my life

We watched it burn to a bitter ending

In the dawn of a jaded light

 

Now I'm at your daggers edge

Waiting for the final

Now I'm at your daggers edge

Waiting for the curtain to fall

 

Waiting for the final curtain

Waiting for the final

 

Jokes on you motherfuckers

You can’t kill what’s already dead

Jokes on you motherfuckers

You can’t kill what’s already dead

 

There’s something left in this cold heart

That tells me this

This ain't over

No this ain’t over

 

Jokes on you motherfuckers

You can’t kill what’s already dead

Jokes on you motherfuckers

You can’t kill what’s already dead

 

 

8. Suicide Girls

 

Cold skin to shaking lip

She is a shell for you

To be beautiful is to be raped…by love?

 

Just a lifeless longing

For touch

Screaming and clawing for more

With those 523940 eyes

She thinks it’s love

 

And in those m12 amethyst lips

She thinks it’s love

 

As you caress her cold body

She’s shaking

She’s empty

Just another shell for you

 

Fucking magician

Fucking mind control

 

Oh shit

 

Cold skin

In all its beautiful lust

Cold skin

You stole her innocence

 

You stole her beauty

She is empty

You clawed out her eyes

Her fucking eyes

 

9. Q. What Do You Call Getting a Handjob From Mrs Calloway in the Back of Her Jaguar? A. A Fucking Lie

 

All innocence is dead

All innocence is dead

All innocence is dead

All innocence is fucking dead

 

You can't lift your head

Don't act so proud

With your forked tongue

Spitting out my life

 

A sitcom vulture

Preying on people’s lives

Like you had the higher ground

What the fuck?

 

Your life’s a soap opera

It’s praising apathy

Masturbating over

These fantasies

 

Your life’s a soap opera

Praising apathy

Masturbating over

Fantasies

 

You can't lift your head

Don't act so proud

With your forked tongue

Spitting out my life

 

A sitcom vulture

Preying on people’s lives

Like you had the higher ground

What the fuck?

 

Your life’s a soap opera

It’s praising apathy

Masturbating over

Fantasies

 

Your life’s a soap opera

Praising apathy

Masturbating over

Fantasies

 

Not one word

Your throat belongs to me

I’ll take it from you

 

We'll tear your throat out

Cut you open to find

There is nothing inside

You’re fucking empty

 

No more words

This is a vow

Not one more sound

 

We'll tear your throat out

Leave you speechless forever

We'll tear your throat out

Leave you speechless forever

We'll tear your throat out

Leave you speechless forever

We'll tear your throat out
