Track Name: This Will Kill That (Treuhand Mix by Howie Beno & Brandt Gassman)
I try to maintain

A victim of my own lucidity

And when I try to stay sane

All the madness just crawls right out of me

When I throw on the light

My body in relief, it’s clinical

A corpse dying of fright

The movement in the mirror is minimal



Bet you never thought that this would kill that

Bet you never thought, bet you never thought

I never thought

You’re trying to do what?

Make this one kill that

Trying to do what you were always scared of



To focus is hard

For lips that never move to communicate

And I’m always on guard

The object of the force to terminate

It’s a throw away life

My body and my thoughts just vaporize

And I’m covered in bites

By a madness that remains still weaponized



A maze that’s mine

A blade so fine

Bet you never thought, bet you never, never, never thought.



Bet you never thought, I never thought, I never thought.

This will kill that



This will kill that

Trying to do what you were always scared of

This will kill that

Trying to do what you were always scared of

This will kill that

Trying to do what you were always scared of

Bet you never thought that this would kill that

Trying to do what you were always scared of
Track Name: Joy Thieves (Psychic Dissent Mix by Black Needle Noise)
Shut your fucking mouth and keep your hands where I can see them

Do exactly what I say and this will all be over soon

If you value your life and the lives of those around you

Put the money in the bag and we all just walk away

But if you think that you’re a hero, let me offer this advice

It’s hard to be a hero with a hole between your eyes

Joy Thieves

A hole between your eyes

Joy Thieves

No one has to die

Stay face down on the ground

Don’t make a fucking sound

Stay face down on the ground

Don’t make a fucking sound

Ladies and gentlemen, in this unlikely scenario…I am the alpha male

I’ll take everything you have

Now just put it in the bag

I am the alpha male

I am the alpha male
Track Name: Honeycomb And Silk (Hollowed Be Thy Brain Mix)
The buzzing in the tips of my fingers

And the tickling in my tongue

The streaks of lightning beneath my eyelids

And vibrations in my lungs

The swollen bumps that throb and pulsate

And seep fluids down my face

The woven threads that conceal the larva

That live only to debase

They let me know there will be no resting

They let me know they will never cease

They let me know that they’ve started nesting

They let me know there will be no peace

Earth is coming back for me

Honeycomb and silk are all I see

Earth is coming back through me

What once was me is hollow

I don’t belong to me

I don’t belong to me

Diseased worms wriggle from my fingers

Squirming bumps beneath the skin

All the sores chewed into my eyelids

And the botflies held within

They let me know that they’re now ingesting

All the nutrients meant for me

They let me know that they’re manifesting

And taking over inside of me

Earth is coming back for me

Honeycomb and silk are all I see

Earth is coming back through me

What once was me is hollow

I don’t belong to me

I don’t belong to me

It’s hard to be a hero with a hole between your eyes

Joy Thieves

A hole between your eyes

Joy Thieves

Trying to do what you were always scared of

This will kill that

Trying to do what you were always scared of

Bet you never thought that this would kill that

Trying to do what you were always scared of
