Lyrics

apparatus of demise

Written By: Michael Zucker

Dead, dead, thatÕs the word
And I say it again if you havenÕt heard
Cause we turn those wheels to make them bleed
And we throw the switch on deathÕs machine
Digging through the ground
Where light cannot be found
WeÕre digging through the ground
To find the key
Digging through the ground
Where light cannot be found
WeÕre digging through the ground
To set it free
And if you donÕt wanna die (you better listen to me)
From the ground into the sky (you better watch what I mean)
Fall down from the grace of your life
Fall into the hands of this strife
Fall deeper into your core
YouÕll find that there is so much more
Fall out of the shell of living
Fall into the unforgiving
And if you donÕt wanna die (you better listen to me)
From the ground into the sky (you better watch what I mean

Weeping

Close the door to your room
No more light to see this tomb
ThereÕre sounds of scratching on the walls
Is that you that I here call

IÕm not afraid to die, but IÕm not ready
IÕm so afraid to live, but IÕm already

Pinch the skin the nerves are dead
Numbness flows throughout my head
Choke off the anger itÕs all gone
Turn off the screams they mean no harm
Burn out the sun with its warming glow
I never needed it you know

IÕm not afraid, but IÕm already dying
IÕm so afraid and IÕm already crying
IÕm not afraid to die, but IÕm not ready
IÕm so afraid to live, but IÕm already
IÕm not afraid to dream, but IÕm not ready
IÕm so afraid to love, but IÕm already

exsanguinate

Written By: Michael Zucker

Impale the heart of your master
Ripped out clean his pumping fuel
Sacrifice to give your life to
Purify your every move
IÕll bleed for you
If you bleed too
Tear it up tear it down
I donÕt care push me around
Slight of hand, light of heart
Now we can never come apart
Puncture the vein, this is insane
I hope your happy now
Choke of the breath, gasping for death
Come on IÕll show you how
IÕm not the best I must confess, but IÕll bleed for you
If weÕre the same then thereÕs no shame, if you bleed too
IÕll run away, letÕs not do this
IÕll run away, letÕs not do this
IÕll never stay, unless you confess
IÕll never stay
Purity, sympathy, itÕs all the same to me
Truncate the feelings and these dealings are betrayed
Rupture the skin flowing within, your sp?calice? heart
Rip out the tongue of everyone
Purity, sympathy, itÕs all the same to me
Truncate the feelings and these dealings are betrayed
Rupture the skin flowing within, your sp?calice? heart
Rip out the tongue of everyone, until you find yourself mute
Realize this, if they donÕt find us we will never be found
Realize this, if they donÕt find us weÕll be free to make our own sound
Realize this, if they donÕt find us we will never be found
Realize this, if they donÕt find us weÕll be free to make our own sound
IÕm not afraid to disappoint you, turn your head and just walk away
I wanted you to know the truth that you can never betray
IÕm not afraid to disappoint you turn your head and just look away
Purity, sympathy, itÕs all the same to me
Truncate the feelings and these dealings are betrayed
Rupture the skin flowing within, your sp?calice? heart
Rip out the tongue of everyone
Purity, sympathy, itÕs all the same to me
Truncate the feelings and these dealings are betrayed
Rupture the skin flowing within, your sp?calice? heart
Rip out the tongue of everyone, until you find yourself mute
