MY SOUL

Track Name: THE CHILDREN WILL ALWAYS BE BORED (2008 DEMO)
THEY'RE HAVING TROUBLE
CAN YOU SAVE THEM
THEY FORGOT ABOUT
WHY THEY'RE LIVING YEAH
BUT THEY'LL NEVER KNOW
NO THEY'LL NEVER KNOW
BECAUSE THEY'RE LAZY FUCKING AMERICANS
BORING STUPID AMERICANS

SO WHAT IS IT
THAT YOU CAME TO SEE
I'LL NEVER KNOW BECAUSE
YOU'RE NEVER LISTENING
I GUESS I WAS JUST TOO BUSY
THINKING ABOUT WHAT I WAS DOING
WHERE I WAS GOING
AND WHO I WAS MISSING

GOD I FORGOT THE MEANING
OF EVERYTHING THAT I
WAS SINGING
BUT THEY'LL NEVER KNOW
NO THEY'LL NEVER KNOW
BECAUSE THEY'RE LAZY FUCKING AMERICANS
ROTTING AWAY IN THE KINGDOM OF SHIT

FOUR MORE WEEKS
OF PULLING TEETH
AND ANOTHER NIGHT
WITH NO SLEEP
OH LORD
WHEN WILL YOU BURY ME

IT'S NO USE TRYING TO LEAVE
TRYING TO LEAVE BEHIND EVERYTHING

NOTHING REALLY MATTERS ANYMORE
NOTHING IS IMPORTANT ANYMORE
BECAUSE THE CHILDREN
THEY'LL ALWAYS BE BORED
Track Name: MEMPHIS BLUES (2008 DEMO)
THEY SOLD THEIR SOULS
AND SIGNED THE LINE
GOT IN THE VAN AND
SO IT BEGAN
THE JOURNEY TO OUR MISERY
WE'VE YET TO UNDERSTAND

THREE YEARS GO BY
PLAY CITY AFTER CITY
TO THE DEAF THE DEAD AND THE BLIND
THREE YEARS

OH, MY LIFE'S SOOO SHITTY
AND I CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHY
TAKE THIS PAIN AWAY
THIS CITY'S FROZEN OVER
AND EVERYONE LEFT YESTERDAY

I SEE HOME
SO I'LL BE RUNNING
BACK HOME SOON
I'LL BE BACK HOME SOON

I HATED MYSELF
FOR THE THINGS THAT WE'VE DONE
BUT THE CHOICES WERE MADE
NOW WE'RE FORCING THE FUN

THREE YEARS GO BY
Track Name: THREE YEARS (2005 DEMO)
GRIND
UP MY HEART
WITH THE REST
OF THE MEAT
I DON'T THINK
THAT I'LL NEED THIS EVER AGAIN

I FIND MYSELF
IN A HORRIFIC POSITION
THE WORDS WERE SPOKEN
AND NEVER REPEATED

I SWEAR TO THIS
MY LOVE
OR AT LEAST I THINK

FINGERS TAPPING
WHILE THE
SCREEN SHINES BRIGHT ON MY FACE
TOO OFTEN
HAS THIS
HAPPENED
TO REMEMBER
CERTAIN DAYS
CERTAIN SENTENCES
CERTAIN PHRASES
CERTAIN PEOPLE JUST CANNOT BE TRUSTED

GRIND
UP MY HEART
WITH THE REST
OF THE MEAT
I DON'T THINK
THAT I'LL NEED THIS EVER AGAIN
I FIND MYSELF IN A HORRIFIC POSITION

THE WORDS WERE SPOKEN

I SWEAR TO THIS
MY LOVE
OR AT LEAST I THINK

EVERYTHING
CAME STRAIGHT FROM MY HEART
AND TRANSFERRED
TO ANOTHER
NEVER KNOWING
THINGS WOULD BE
CATALOGED AND CONFIRMED

HORRIBLE BLACKMAIL
IN THE RAREST OF FORMS
COMING FROM SOMEONE
WHO WAS ONLY
TRYING TO HELP
UNSURE OF THEIR MOTIVES
AND UNCLEAR OF THEIR ACTIONS

THINGS WERE SAID
AND TAKEN TOO FAR FROM THE START
LOVERS TURN TO HATERS
AND FRIENDS TURN TO FOES
FRIENDS TURN TO FOES
FRIENDS TURN TO FOES
Track Name: DEVILS (2005 DEMO)
THINGS CAN HAPPEN IN AN INSTANT AND
THINGS CAN GO UNNOTICED AND
THINGS CAN BE BLURTED OUT WITHOUT QUESTION

I KNOW I HAVE NO REASON TO
TO FEEL THE WAY I DO
THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT YOU

I TOLD MYSELF THAT I WAS THROUGH
BUT AM I THROUGH WITH YOU
ME WITH MY OTHER
YOU FOUND ANOTHER
THESE DEVILS ON MY SHOULDER HAVE TORN ME APART
AND I'VE LED
MYSELF
TOWARD DISASTER

FEELING CHEATED IS RIDICULOUS ON MY PART
BUT IT'S THERE
FOR SOME REASON IT'S THERE

SET MYSELF UP FOR DESTRUCTION
THINK I KNEW IT FROM THE START

LATE NIGHTS
LONG TALKS
EMOTIONS
I SHOULD HAVE
KEPT AT BAY
THINGS THAT I DIDN'T
REALLY NEED TO SAY

I TOLD MYSELF THAT I WAS THROUGH
Track Name: EATING LIGHTNING II (2005 DEMO)
ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY DAYS HAVE PASSED
SINCE I'VE BEEN HERE
TRAPPED DEEP INSIDE THIS WHITE BEAST
WE ARE ITS HANDS
WE ARE ITS BLOOD
COLD STREETS ARE WHAT WE FOLLOW
LINED WITH TORN APART SOULS
DARK HEARTS ARE BEING HIDDEN
TO BE FOUND ON OUR WAY HOME

SPEAK NOW
OR FOREVER
HOLD YOUR BREATH

COMPANIONSHIP
BROKEN FOR GREED
COMPANIONSHIP
BROKEN FOR GREEN

SECRET AGENDAS
RENDEZVOUS NEVER SPOKEN OF
BEHIND THE BACKS
BEHIND THE BACKS OF THE ONES YOU LOVED

YOU COULD HAVE
BEEN THERE TIL THE END
THE BITTER END

WHEN YOU SAID
THAT IT WAS GO TIME
WELL YOU SHOULD HAVE
YOU SHOULD HAVE LISTENED

IT'S YOUR TIME TO GO
Track Name: BLACK LION (2005 DEMO)
LET'S PACK UP
AND HEAD EAST
FIND THE PERFECT PLACE TO
SETTLE DOWN
I'VE WANTED
TO DESTROY MYSELF
FOR A WHILE NOW
AND WITH YOUR HELP I CAN TRY TONIGHT
THIS DESERT IS BEAUTIFUL
THIS DESERT IS OURS

STAY HERE TONIGHT
NO WAIT
WAIT A WEEK
LET ME LOSE MYSELF
IN THIS DRY HEAT

WE'LL BOTH KNOW
WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT
HONEY
I'LL BE ON MY BACK
WITH MY EYES CLOSED
BEGGING FOR SLEEP
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS
LIGHT THAT CIGARETTE
AND LET IT FALL

HANDS CLASPED
HOPING TO GOD
THE FLAME REACHES ME
WALK AWAY BUT DON'T LEAVE
WITNESS AS THE SKY TURNS BLACK
AND THE FLAMES THEY CONSUME ME

TAKING ME IN
TAKING ME OVER

MY BODY TIGHTENS AND I'M THROUGH
LOOK AT THE SMOKE RISE IN THE SKY
TONIGHT WE WON'T WORRY ABOUT I LOVE YOU
JUST THINK ABOUT GOODBYE

ANTI-FASCIST
ANTI-MOD
I AM THE ANTI-MUSIC GOD

ANTI-PEOPLE NOW YOU'VE GONE TOO FAR
HERE'S YOUR ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR
Track Name: WHY WE'RE DEAD (ALT. TAKE)
BREATHE IN THIS HELL
TASTE HOW UGLY IT IS
EVERY DAY
THE SAME FACES
THAT MAKE DEATH SO INVITING

QUESTIONS
ENDLESS QUESTIONS
WITH POINTLESS ANSWERS
WHITE LIES SPILL OUT
WHILE WHITE NOISE FILLS MY HEAD

BLEEDING EYES
BLEEDING EYES
RIP OUT MY HAIR
SPIT IN MY FACE
I'M YOUR LITTLE BITCH
STEP ALL OVER ME
EVERY DAY
WITH DIFFERENT SHOES

BREATHE IN THIS HELL
TASTE HOW UGLY IT IS
EVERY DAY
THE SAME FACES
THAT MAKE DEATH SO INVITING

MAKE IT HURT
MAKE IT WORTH IT
Track Name: EATING LIGHTNING PT. I & II (SEATTLE 2006)
FROZEN
OH, HOW I WISH I WAS
THIS TIME TONIGHT COULDN'T BE ANY BETTER
FREEZING
OH, HOW UNCERTAIN I AM
THE PLACES, THE FACES
WHERE HAVE I GONE

I'VE BECOME
THE CONCRETE THAT
MY FEET WILL NEVER MEET

THIS STREET GOES ON FOREVER

SO TONIGHT MY SHEETS NEVER EXISTED
THESE MEMORIES OF LAUGHTER LATE AT NIGHT
WON'T BE WASTED

NINE LIVES LIVE AS ONE IN THE WORST OF CITIES
NO ONE KNOWS OUR NAMES AND OUR POCKETS ARE A PITY
SO I'LL SCREAM EACH NIGHT UNTIL MY THROAT RUNS DRY
SO I'LL SCREAM UNTIL I WANNA DIE
AND IF IT WAS SO AND I DIED BY YOUR SIDE
AT THAT MOMENT I'D KNOW
THAT I'D BE JUST FINE

NOT TOO MANY GET TO LIVE THEIR LIFE LIKE MINE
--
ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY DAYS HAVE PASSED
SINCE I'VE BEEN HERE
TRAPPED DEEP INSIDE THIS WHITE BEAST
WE ARE ITS HANDS
WE ARE ITS BLOOD
COLD STREETS ARE WHAT WE FOLLOW
LINED WITH TORN APART SOULS
DARK HEARTS ARE BEING HIDDEN
TO BE FOUND ON OUR WAY HOME

SPEAK NOW
OR FOREVER
HOLD YOUR BREATH

COMPANIONSHIP
BROKEN FOR GREED
COMPANIONSHIP
BROKEN FOR GREEN

SECRET AGENDAS
RENDEZVOUS NEVER SPOKEN OF
BEHIND THE BACKS
BEHIND THE BACKS OF THE ONES YOU LOVED

YOU COULD HAVE
BEEN THERE TIL THE END
THE BITTER END

WHEN YOU SAID
THAT IT WAS GO TIME
WELL YOU SHOULD HAVE
YOU SHOULD HAVE LISTENED

IT'S YOUR TIME TO GO
Track Name: BEHOLD, THE WHITE WHORE (SEATTLE 2006)
THE SPEAKEASY PARLOR
WAS FILLED WITH MANY
A FAIR LADY
FALLEN VICTIM
TO ANOTHER MIND RAPE
BY THEIR CHRISTIAN FATHERS
IT WAS NEVER EASY
TO SHOW THEM I LOVED THEM
HE SAID AS HE WAS
REMOVED FROM THE BOOTH
NO ONE HAD THE TIME TO LISTEN TO HIM
THEY DON'T CARE

IT WASN'T HIS THING TO TALK LIKE THAT
WAKING UP THE NEXT DAY
IN A NIGHTMARE OF A
GREY COLORED ROOM
FULL OF FRIENDS WITH NO NAMES
AND METAL AS COLD AS HELL

THIS WAS YET ANOTHER FAVORITE OF HIS
CONSCIOUS EFFORT WAS PUT INTO EVERYTHING
THAT HE DIDN'T DO
AND EVERYTHING ELSE WAS A FAILED PLAN
WHY DIDN'T THIS WORK

IF ONLY GRATITUDE COULD GET YOU SOMEWHERE

CENSOR HIS BLEEDING HANDS
BROKEN TEETH AND BLOOD RED HAIR
THIS IS HIS LOVE
KEEP IT UP
YET ANOTHER DAY
BLESSED WITH HIS PRESENCE
CONTINUE TO BEAT HIM
THIS IS HIS LOVE

COUGHING UP HIS MOTHER'S LOVE
ALL OVER A PLATE OF REFURBISHED ORGANISMS
THIS IS HIS LOVE

OH MOTHER MARY FORGIVE THEM
FOR THEY HAVE WON
THEY HAVE WON

SPOKEN FAST ENOUGH
TO SPARK A MEMORY INTO EVERYONE'S
TIRED MINDS

BUILT UPON A CROSS OF CLOTHES
AND THORNS OF WRINKLED SCARVES
AND HUNG FROM A CEILING AND SENT
TO EVERY CHILD'S LIVING ROOM

DEPICTIONS OF LIFE AS TOLD
BY A SUBDUED BODY WITHIN US ALL
WE AREN'T LOVED ANYMORE
BEHOLD, THE WHITE WHORE
