Track Name: Soulless
I don’t feel anything
I don’t see anything
I don’t know anything anymore
I don’t hear anything anymore

I’ve divided up my heart
I’ve given it all to them

If I close my eyes to the black
If I only return to dust
If this is all that there is
At least I’ve given my soul away

This is all I know
Track Name: Skinless
Shed this rotting skin
My flesh falls off like holy lies
Ignoring when too much is too much

The spirit escapes this rib cage
But maybe I let it go
A structure remains but seems powerless
But maybe I’ve just stopped trying

The flesh on the ground continues to rot
And I am left without feeling
Deconstructing to the point of habit
And I am left skinless and numb

Skinless and numb
Track Name: Mindless
I am haunted
Thinking seems to be a curse
Haunted by more questions than answers
I judge the mindless, the blind, the deaf
But am I better off as a machine?
I close my eyes
Self-lobotomy is a welcome thought
Maybe ignorance truly is bliss
Self-lobotomy is a welcome thought
I close my eyes
I am haunted
Track Name: Heartless (feat. Nicholas Nowell, ex-The Famine)
Watch us tear you apart
Watch us tear out your still-beating heart
Watch us tear you limb from limb
Piece by piece until you are left with nothing

Wickedness surges through your veins
Your black blood violating anything it touches
Desensitized to dehumanization
Don't worry, it's just part of the process

We’ve been living for the death of a culture
We’ve believed it’s our duty to destroy
We’ve been living to watch them suffer
We’ve believed that we’ve always heard a voice

But it’s always been my own heart
Now it’s slowly beating it’s last
Pumping wicked blood all over my hands
And I’m nothing but a heartless bastard

My blood runs black
Track Name: Breathless
The words of our fathers are tormenting our hearts
Tormenting our minds
We’re drowning in fear
Gasping for breath
Reaching for hope as the light quickly fades
When will the struggle end?
When will we learn to breathe?
We’re drowning in fear
Tormenting our hearts
Tormenting our minds
We’re drowning in fear
If this is “living” then count me out
Track Name: Spiritless
Where can I go from your spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
Am I missing something?
Are my eyes closed?
I’ve tried my damnedest
But my heart is hollow
And I’m overtaken by sorrow
I thought this would be easier
I know you’re alive
But my hope is diminishing
My hope is always diminishing
You’re always just out of reach
Always out of reach
