Lyrics

Numbskulls

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

Boycott the count tonight
It's insane the way you want to
Lie awake believing thoughts
That white wash your way to peaceful states
Cause I feel fine this way
I'm feeling safe
I am so blessed, I am so blessed
Asleep, I'll never know
I counted sheep to pecking crows

Unaware you won't, try
All too numb to fight, I-
Don't see this ending at all (x2)

Give it awhile
Calm transition
Till I feel fine
I'm now
A deity's symbol of a dove
If I kill this coming dose (I'm feeling safe)
Save myself from comatose
All odds are that
The sleeping
Will die asleep than wake at all

Unaware you won't, try
All too numb to fight, I-
Don't see this ending at all (x2)

Numb- sleep through these incessant sights
Skull- separates me from my mind
You will obey, I will obey
When they come reaching for you
Submission feeds this enemy

Unaware you won't, try
All too numb to fight, I-
Don't see this ending at all
(cause you are unbearably asleep)
Don't see this ending at all
(cause you are unbearably asleep)

Underling

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

Osiris and the monarch
Have come to rip you by the bough down from the cradle
Bow down and enable
A ruse distinct in assault
This savage apparatus
Mouths inaudibly:
To "gouge these colonies"
There'll be no massive impart
No gnosis of this embark
No cipher with us shrieking loud loud of their being
A need to rise in alarm
Along meridian marks
Ariel weapons leave our dumb down mouths repeating:

In my house I'm educated
(my house is my house is)
My house is educated
(in my house and in my house is...)

There is so many of us
There is so many you could drown drown in the people
Count down bottom feeder
(x4)

They'll be no gift of an ark
They sheppard us into the mouths that hungrily
Abound in coliseums
Our bones'll be a rampart
Half eaten victims making mounds
These underlings
Crawl out
Up to the streets where
Asylum rose in the dark
Asylum rose in the dark
Asylum rose let it burn down down
All you're seeing
There'll be no massive impart
No gnosis of this embark
No cipher witness shrieking loud loud
It can't be cause

In my house I'm educated
My house is educated
(in my house and in my house is)

There is so many of us
There is so many you could drown drown in the people
Count down bottom feeder
(x4)

I am a modern human
I am a model of them
I am immoral I am asymmetric
(x2)
(In my house I'm educated)
I am a modern human
I am a model of them
I am immoral I am asymmetric

There is so many of us
There is so many you could drown drown in the people
Count down bottom feeder
(x4)

Kill Me By Inches

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

Try as you might
Try as you might
Pull from caprice
Lit dynamite
The queerest of case
I dare recite
Bow to the priest
Bend and ignite

When you're near its murder for me
To resist is to pacify
The effect will desensitize
(x2)

Try as you might try as you might
Combat your unfed appetite
Cognitive state reels and rewrites
But there is no cure try as you might

When you're near its murder for me
To resist is to pacify
The effect will desensitize
When you're near its murder for me
Oh when you're near its murder for
Murder for me

Fear is symptom to my beating heart
Through each vein and chamber dark
I fall deeper than a swallowed pill
Drowning in your mouth

When you're near its murder for me
To resist is to pacify
The effect will desensitize
(x2)

Heat

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

You're mediocre, and you're happy if you know it
And ugly secrets keep you prized sow, never show them
As sin seeps through veneers
Secretes enough to break your mirror
Twelve hundred years from this night I won't be finished trying to eat you alive
Your fat fucking head is a real chew

I'm not sorry for this hate filled lullaby
Bliss junkies on a full speed liar's high
She's better when she's mixed with grenadine
Action's obsolete when she's in heat

Cosmic
Fellatrix
Wired up
To screw fits
An eyesore
Bombardier
Suck the pain of onslaught
Severe

I'm not sorry for this hate filled lullaby
Bliss junkies on a full speed liar's high
She's better when she's mixed with grenadine
Action's obsolete when she's in heat

I have no respect for what's dead
None at all
My blasphemous mouth
Tells a tale too tall
If I am wrong and a saints what you are
Strike me dead
Burn my body in the stars

I'm not sorry for this hate filled lullaby
Bliss junkies on a full speed liar's high
She's better when she's mixed with grenadine
Action's obsolete when she's in heat
She's in heat
Heat
She's in heat

Beck + Call

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

There lies a manuscripted
Idol without a flaw
I think I need a medic
I took a deadly fall
Loved you loved you too much
Built you a temple
Your kind makes kingdoms fall
I'm at your beck and call
Am I entertaining?
Am I shock and awe?
I manifest so fixated-
Am I your hardest fall?
Loved you loved you too much
Built you a temple
Your kind makes kingdoms fall
I'm at your beck and call
Id bomb a nation for you
Id bomb a nation
Id bomb a nation for you
Abomination!

See the army recombine to the bidding of an absent crime
To defeat that I see four lights
You repeat that I must see five
It's a lie and a lie is a lie
An eye for an eye is a lie is a lie

I abide by this vile insentience
Lockstep in hollow cause
In a pile I wept so infected-
Back to your feet I crawled
Loved you loved you too much
Built you a temple
Your kind makes kingdoms fall
I'd bomb a nation for you
I'd bomb a nation
I'd bomb a nation for you
Abomination!

See the army recombine to the bidding of an absent crime
To defeat that I see four lights
You repeat that I must see five
It's a lie and a lie is a lie
An eye for an eye is a lie is a lie

Catch you undone, catch you undone, when
You'll slip up when the war is won, fun-
Its gonna be when you're sad to see me
At your door with a million more to
Carry you carry you off, in insurgence
Carry you carry you off, to burn fervent
Catch you undone, catch you undone when-
All abrupt come the crowds from under

See the army recombine to the bidding of a massive cry
You can speak every single lie you repeat for your fascist crimes
It's a lie and a lie is a lie
An eye for an eye is a lie is a lie

Swarm

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

Wish that
Never did she
Never did she know
To shatter them shatter them shatter them
Left in this silent swarm remind them it
Tastes so real
Never did she know
Never did she, never did she seize them
By the throat her temper told her:
"Shut your eyes and shatter them shatter them"

Get back to your basement
And toy with your flame whip
Let them all die let them all
Swear to God
Swear to God I-
(x2)

Wish that
Never did she
Never did she know
To shatter them, shatter them
Left in this silent swarm remind them that it just
Tastes so real
Never did she know
Never did she, never did she seize them
By the throat her temper told her:
"Shut your eyes and shatter them, shatter them"

Crucified, feast your eyes
Let them all die let them all
Swear to god, swear to god I-
Crucified you like religious ammunition
Let them all die, Let them all
Swear to god, swear to god I-

Our skin keeps all our secrets tight
Like this one's tight underneath mine
On a night like this
You're a window
Flesh on your face
Scared white like a statue
Bleed your fears
Shattered dear
Won't be much left of you here
Let them all die
Let them all
Swear to god
Don't let them tell you they loved you more than anything
(our skin keeps all our secrets tight)
Don't let them tell you they loved you more than anything
(like this one's tight underneath mine)
Their fingers cross behind the little darlings
Let them all die (x2)
Swear to god (x3)

Get back to your basement
And toy with your flame whip
Let them all die
Let them all
Swear to god
Swear to god I-
Crucified you like religious ammunition
Let them all die
Let them all
Swear to god
Swear to god I-
Don't let them tell you they loved you more than anything (x2)

Paraben Paraphernalia

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

Gin and ballroom haze
Kills the spin on things
Oh so violent
Is the devil in me
This naked ape he keeps sublime /
Paraben paraphernalia
This ego strokes an even climb
Paraben paraphernalia
The scene is soaked in greed and hype

I'm crowned in this insatiate high
This scrounge evolves and ricochets
I'll take it to the grave
I'll raise up
Fearless to the afterlife

In the afternoon
Fruitless as the moon
Crystal ball
Gazing
Back at me
That same complacent peace of mind
Paraben paraphernalia
This ego strokes an even climb
Paraben paraphernalia
The scene is soaked in greed and hype
(doomed's what you are)
Just say you want an easy way to die-

Crowned in this insatiate high
This scrounge evolves and ricochets
I'll take it to the grave
I'll raise up
Fearless to the afterlife

All this is almost enough
Just suck the marrow out
All this is almost enough
We are the victims of our own device
We are the witness of our own demise
We see this sickness with our open eyes
Saying all this is almost enough

I'm crowned in this insatiate high
(doomed's what you are)
This scrounge evolves and ricochets
I'll take it to the grave
I'll raise up
Fearless to the afterlife

Hard Fanatic

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

Even if my heart will break
To know you
I need to
And even if all the time I waste is
Better spent on other things
And not you

It's your mouth
It's your mouth that sings to me bared-
Teeth out, grinning like a wolf eating sheep singing:
"My dear, my dear, my dear
It's cause I love you so much
I fear, I can't deal, I can't deal
with my wandering lust"

Black black black black hole
Swallowing me whole
(down down down down)
Mouth just like an O
(down down down down)
I'm fun come get my autograph
I jump through hoops like acrobats
Cause eighteen is still a little baby
Charming with fascinating eyes
I melt like caps of polar ice
You eat them all alive and then you
Kiss your mama with that mouth of lies saying:
"Heaven save me!"
(dying to, I'm dying to)
Saying: "Heaven save me for what I've done to this one!"

Cause it's your mouth
It's your mouth that sings to me bared-
Teeth out, grinning like a wolf eating sheep singing:
"My dear, my dear, my dear...
It's cause I love you so much
I fear, I can't deal, I can't deal
with this wandering lust"
Just leave me recognizable after this romance ends
since I'm your biggest fan
(x2)

So even if my heart will break
To know you
I need to
And even if all the time I waste is
Better spent on
Other things
And not:
I will kiss you
I will love you
I will be forever of you
(x2)

Serotonin

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

Streaked black misery
Spills jets down her cheeks
Hold your sympathy
I have my decency
No wound brings me movement
I'm absent to all intrusion
Read my face and see
Smiling tragedies
Tell me it's wonderful
I'll let it numb my skull
Tell me it's wonderful

Serotonin makes me shake
Cause I'm happy
Serotonin makes me shake
I'm so happy
Serotonin makes me shake
Cause I'm happy
Serotonin makes me shake

Dead stars shine like zombies
In the sky I count their bodies
I see starving bones connected
Forming peaks that puncture heaven
Chilling little vacant merchant
Give me something, help me cure this
I've no punctured sky to hide in
Left where I can shine
Tell me it's wonderful
I'll let it numb my skull
Tell me it's wonderful

Serotonin makes me shake
Cause I'm happy
Serotonin makes me shake
I'm so happy
Serotonin makes me shake
Cause I'm happy
Serotonin makes me shake
Well I'm still sick on it!
Serotonin makes me shake
I'm still sick on it!
Serotonin makes me shake (x3)

First I took one and had some fun and-
Then I took two to control my mood and-
I took three quite hungrily
I took four cause I needed more-
I took five which lead to ten-
And now I'll never be sad again
Whoo!
(La la la la la la)
I could climb a mountain
(La la la la la la)
Swim across the ocean
(La la la la la la)
Conquer every country
(La la la la la la)
Steal a bunch of money
Can't catch me (na na na na naa) x3
Can't catch me
Tell me it's wonderful
I'll let it numb my skull
Tell me it's wonderful

Serotonin makes me shake
Cause I'm happy
Serotonin makes me shake
I'm so happy
Serotonin makes me shake
I'm happy
Serotonin makes me shake
Suckin' on serotonin (la la la la) x 4

Death By Trance

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

I met a nun on a plane on a plane
Closest to God's where she wanted to stay
High jacked mid air with a crucifix blade
Everyone dead and now hell's where she prays
So be it manhunts for the Nazis in the spectrum
Some inauspicious livid battle with our weapons
We wolves
We wolves are always teething
Fresh crowds idol fears in the anthems
Be instructed till the wreckage will surmount them
This ship is sinking on me

Meta-meta-metaphor
What do what do you take me for?
(x2)

I met a square in an awkward display
Kindred's eclipse with reputations at stake
It was his heart that I went and I wronged
Beating it dripped and was thrown to the dogs
So prey on instincts and ambitions that can excel
These frozen bodies need some heat so they can raise hell
Divide
Divide the human being
Keep them coming keep them coming like a mantra
Separated separated separate them
They'll spark their own gasoline

Meta-meta-metaphor
What do what do you take me for?
(x2)

Are you well? (x3)
Are we well? (x3)
Arm yourself (x2)

Christ on the cross didn't know what to say
A scarecrow hung up like a freak on display
Drained from the weight of his flesh and his bones
Catalysts here are what us wolves feed on

Meta-meta-metaphor
What do what do you take me for?
(x2)
Metaphor what do you take me for? (x2)

Better New You

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

Did demolition
Crews do
A number on you?
God, did you try to
Catch a wrecking ball
Tight between your teeth
And try to bite and eat it?
(Shouldn't be alarmed) you've done a ton of thinking
(Shouldn't be alarmed) you've done your estimating
(Shouldn't be alarmed) you'll be back and operating
Lucky for you, pieces are pieced by the edges they leave
(WHOO!)

You sexy wreck Miss Monroe! (x3)
You sexy wreck!
You sexy wreck Miss Monroe (x2)

No success
You lack
All that
Picasso possessed,
In excess looks aren't
Everything in the world that turns
They're just everything that turns people on to you
(Shouldn't be alarmed) you've done a ton of thinking
(Shouldn't be alarmed) you've done your estimating
(Shouldn't be alarmed) you'll be back and operating
Lucky for you, pieces are pieced by the edges they leave
(WHOO!)

You sexy wreck Miss Monroe! x3
You sexy wreck!

Can't construct them any better, no better than you
You can't construct them any better no better than you

I broke my fall on a porcelain doll
She was so small
I cracked her skull
(x2)
Pieces piece each shattered feature
Back in place this stunning creature
Will be unearthed after the procedure
Right as rain and pleased to see she's
Tailored to her automatic prime (x2)
You self destruct into a better, a better new you! (x3)
You sexy wreck! (A better, a better new you!)

You sexy wreck Miss Monroe!
You sexy wreck!
(x2)
I broke my fall on a porcelain doll
She was so small
I cracked her skull
(x2)

Karmakazi

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

That you are
All that you usurp
Becomes chemical
And is doomed to subvert
That you are
All that you, you sir-
Are just a hyperbolic dummy

Vivisection
Everybody's having their
Cut me up
I'm out of feeling
(x2)

Pathogen
Is your bastard kin
Peel your thin
Palest skin to its
Cysts malign-
Be a pet
Don't you move just yet
I'm still exploring all your insides-
Cause you're inside out!
This cavalcade I suffer
Through chalk pills that are alkaline
Rip me up till I rupture
Bleed me out under fluorescent lights

Vivisection
Everybody's having their
Cut me up
I'm out of feeling
(x2)
Don't die on me keep up, don't die on me keep up
Are you wide awake, are you wide awake?
(x2)

You're not goddamn special
You're a fucking disease
(x3)

Vivisection
Everybody's having their
Cut me up
I'm out of feeling
(x2)
Don't die on me keep up, don't die on me keep up
Are you wide awake, are you wide awake?
(x2)
You say I'll heal like nothing at all
(wide awake) x2
You say I'll heal like nothing at all

Into The Greedy Grave

Written By: Natasha Reske-Naurocki

I spent all my time on diamonds
Robes that sweep the dust in mines where-
Breathing air is breathing diamonds
Filling lungs of those who mine them
Lavish pain with golden ember
Diamonds tempt me with their splendor
I spent all this time deciding
How many could still be hiding?
On this island's hollowed mountains
Shining in the night I found them
In my palms I grip my purpose
I'll collect them I deserve this-
Sinless white exists inside us
God loves us and we love diamonds
I spent all this time reminded-
How I love to love my diamonds
Diamonds fill my head with whispers-
Whispering please bring your sister-
Screaming she is filled with diamonds-
Crack her open we will find them!
I suspect the problems mining-
People stealing what they're finding!
Yet they claim they're sick and dying-
They're all thieves and they're all lying!
I spent all my time on diamonds-
Rocking back and forth in silence-
In my caves and in my mines where-
I spent all my time on diamonds!
Spiders crawl along my spineless soul
As long as I have diamonds
