Track Name: Ruled By Wolves
Sore mouth bred
Structured living
Those miles moved
Impressing no one

Display my crutch
Depress my worth
Wolves hiding
In the woolen sheep

We find ourselves wallowed in the mud

Leave that door open
To let that coward in
Blood flower
Blooms regret
Interrogate to blame
The barely innocent
Born tired
Die in debt
Came in from the cold
Away from our own ruin
Frozen assets
Same as death

Overachieving this discretion
We find ourselves wallowed in the mud


Nation of sheep
Rued by wolves
Owned by sheep
Track Name: Mexican Speed Dungeon
Stuffed in a trunk for your safety
Keep quiet and keep your head down
Laying naked in the blasting sun
Skin crawling and your breath is dust
Foreign voices in your head again
Sweats beading on your twitching brow
Open mouth means left for dead
Locked down this is your home

Forever safe
Living fear is at the door
Forever sound
Your screams end at the wall

Forever scared
This life is what you own
Forever scared

They promised everything would be alright
They promised nothing would come of it in the end
Hiding in this ditch at night
Running away from every light
They promised everything would be alright
Sleep heavy in this Mexican dungeon
Wake up your life is over

Forever safe
Living fear is at the door
Forever sound
Your screams end at the wall

Forever scared
This life is what you own
Forever scared
Track Name: Can You Tell Me
Our past is just a story
A fairytale for the uninspired
Left to carry our burden alone
Cast aside and pigeon holed

Can you tell me what they gain from our blood

Lost our way on the path in the dirt
Thousand miles of pain and hurt
Inspiration like a fading torch
Given in can't go forth

Can you tell me

How we've given them
What they take
As they take from ourselves
Wrap yourself in our product
Broken spirits dried
And were left alive
And were left with no spite

Have they found your home
Have they found your mind
Have stolen your time
Consumption is necessary
To be legendary

Inherit our wealth and greed
Given everything you need
Can you tell me what they did for our trust
Can you tell me what they've done with our spite

Can you tell me
Can you tell me
Track Name: Narrow Escape
Shadowed in your cardboard cut out
Message received
Drowning out your brain pans
Hollowed stripped clean

Deliver empathetic embrace

Crawl back in
Done in vain
Crawl back in your hollow
Existent pain

Deliver empathetic embrace

Weakened body
Wounded knees
Embraced sickness
Narcotic pangs
Slide away this narrow escape
Please someone end his suffering
Sickness swallows everything
Lie down in this narrow escape

Deliver empathetic embrace
Track Name: Bag of Teeth
You see that crack
That one right there in the wall
That shining light
That breeze of freedom
Mashing
This tight fit
Tight in space
Mediate you time

Pressing breath to get
Pressing breath of death
Tight in space
Tight in time

I bet if we pulled out all your teeth and all your bones
You'd be able to tread right through these hollow walls

You see that crack
That one right there in the wall
That shining light
That breeze of freedom

We'll keep this bag of teeth
You keep the rest
We'll keep this bag of teeth
You keep your secrets

Discomforts temporary
But permanent
