Lyrics

Teenage Agony

Written By: Kill Kenada

Narcissistic. Nine ways to tip. Yourself over the edge. First go your friends. So dont pretend you need them anyway. Pull back for good. A childhood. Tossed to one side and lost. I dont need you. Pleased to meet you, i'll take one step closer.

Such teenage agony
Such teenage tragedy
Stay calm and everything will cease
Such teenage agony

And when your done. A silent drum. Will beat to play you off. Such troubled times. My troubled mind. Can only dwell on....

Such teenage agony
Such teenage tragedy
Stay calme and everything will cease
Such teenage agony

I see you. I see you. You are the enemy. Turn me on. Turn me off. And then you watch me bleed. Lay me down. Lay me out. Just so that I can breath. Open up. Open wide. Im hanging on a drip. Every day. Every night and let the needle slip. Deep inside, deep inside just so that I can breath.

Im sick and tired
And im always,always...(x4)

Find a spike. Find a space. So I can feel the sting. You can bite, you can burn. Until it numbs the skin. I am gone. I am lost until I see your face.
Clean me up. Clean me out. I wanna be released. Take me home in a box. And then you bury me. I am gone. I am lost until I see your face.

Im sick and tired
And im always..the first to cave in to you.... (x4)

From Maggots To Flies

Written By: Kill Kenada

Creamy pupa. Swollen lavae. Gonna wade straight through your corpse. No attacking. And no defences. Just a sellfish will of greed. Never full. But always fat. The endless race to quell our hunger. But nothing does. No nothing does. There must be something else inside?

From Maggots to flies
We keep on fucking to the heat of the night.
From maggots to flies
We're multipling and we'll eat you alive

Wake up. And hatch-out.
Wide eyes and new horizons.
Move quick. And eat shit. Simple and safe my friend. Conquer. And infest. Fresh vessels for my children..
We're free. And we're many.
No stopping this campaign.

From maggots to flies
We're mulipling and we'll eat you alive.

"We are the parasites of a tasteless host. We are the flies of a loathing society. Amusing the rich with our spineless conversation. Leaches until the day we die...

From maggots to flies
We're multipling and we'll eat you alive
