Track Name: Puppet
Fill these cracks in my skin
With spit, salt, and substance
I only know it makes it better
I don't remember how it felt before

Last night I passed out in a tub of my own blood
I'm still vomiting up your taste

Scars and tract marks claiming territory
I'm in love with your misery

Where others see atrocity
I've found her, a lie I call serenity

No one could ever take you like I did
Pull away, I'm already inside of you

Behold this abomination
This is your "eternity"
Long live the delusion
Run far, you still carry the seed

Your habits choke you like a noose
Tied to a burden you refuse to relinquish

You make your bed like a grave
Blackout in a casket of vomit and tears
You were always dead
Just a ghost carrying an empty shell

You're crawling to an illusion
Crippled and desperate
Put more maggots and roaches in your innards
No one loves you unless you're on it

To die would be your blessing
To live would be nothing

Two people corrupted as one
Like corpses rotting together
Others call it disease
We bathe in our morbid perfection

Think of me when you bleed
Think of me when you step on nails
Think of me when you shiver
I've haunted you just the same

Hate me and love me
We are nothing
Track Name: Missing
Mother, Father, dearest loved ones,
I exist in depths unseen
Bear this sight in your mind
Just as you bore me

I can't reverse the burdens I made
I'll just have to return myself

At the end of my rope
Just enough to tie a noose
Liquor, pills, and an extension cord
The stage is set

Watching minutes dissolve into hours
I've prepared myself to join the dirt
So low, I'm already in hell
My body awaits disposal

Not a thing like they thought
So many things they've never seen
So many marks I've made
Painting curses on my skin

"Just let me be," I wallow with poison inside of me,
"Let me bleed, I resent every breath I breathe"

I am an error;
Not meant for this life
Something's missing
It should be me
Track Name: Residual Haunting
Have a smile and try to hide everything inside your cowardice
Every night you shut your eyes relive the same horror you commit

Cling to a crucifix

Bathing in your anguish
Prolonging in your disgrace
Poisoning the world
Useless as the space you waste

Filthy, privileged, little shit
Craving the taste of feminine skin
Always taking, thinking there's no consequence

You aren't even worth the piss and spit they'll leave on your grave
I'll take the law in my own hands
I'll take your life with my own hands

Bathing in your anguish
Prolonging in your disgrace
Poisoning the world
Useless as the space you waste

Resented more than disease
Every nail in you is another life saved
Track Name: Lifeless
She twists and turns, just like me
She can piss and bleed, just like me
But she cannot speak
She'll never leave

An eternally precious and purchased child, screaming from underneath her porcelain skin

De-limbed and stitched, just for me
Dressed to desire, just for me
Paid-for pleasure, she brings
So beautifully obscene

A tiara placed upon her head
Cut and caress her, all the same
Motherless and broken, she's never had a name

Indulged in unfathomable filth
An artistic corruption
Erasing innocence with the demented lust of a sickened mind

[Hook:]
Rotted flesh beneath her dress
Nails in palms, torturous behest

Eyelids stripped to keep her from sleep
Little girl's learned to smile without teeth
Licking up the blood that she weeps
Her entire future is me

Beneath the soil they play
Away from all eyes they stay
I have my Alice in chains
Exploiting all of their discarded remains

A tiara placed upon her head
Cut and caress her, all the same
Motherless and broken, she's never had a name
Track Name: Voyeur Mortis
Razor to veins; cutting across like a bow to strings
The cold steel feels therapeutic
The screams complete a symphony
Adrenaline; a violent crescendo

My masterpiece before me
The sight captured through digital eyes
Their trauma is my applause
Making nightmares like romantic memories

They all ask, "why?"
Maybe I just wanted to watch something die
Other than myself

There's poetry in perversion
A gruesome craft

Days and days of ways to maim
Eyes yearn crime, they witness my demise

A jigsaw sinks its teeth through the neck
The taste of iron, like nectar for insects

My life is hell

They all ask, "why?"
Maybe I just wanted to watch something die
Other than myself
