Bitterness, another day, idle fate City lights, post-meridian uselessness Bar flies on lonely nights Neglected streets, a homeless life Drifting further, degeneration is at hand Fading away It's easier to go astray Walking miles tonight where urban darkness has devoured the light A wolfpack of lowlives Like bees within their hives A weapon in my pocket to paint with lead these skies Drifter on the loose High on self-abuse I wish you all drop dead to stop this dog-days blues I'll pave my way Active shooter - Active shooter It's my field day Active shooter A million lies, betrayed by youth, a bitter truth The architecture of this farce crumbling down Hands tied, blinded sight, you're in my trunk Driving down the highway There's something on my mind Running away You thought was easier to downplay Driving miles tonight where urban darkness assassinates the light The rise of a lowlife A bee who's left its hive The barrel at your head will paint with blood these skies Drifter on the loose High on self-abuse I wish you all drop dead to stop this dog-days blues I'll pave my way Active shooter - Active shooter It's my field day Active shooter One hell of a night Nocturnal breeze smells fine Watching the world go by through the glass of my gunsight Bitterness, another day, idle fate City lights, post-meridian uselessness A million lies, betrayed by youth, a bitter truth The architecture of this farce crumbling down A wolfpack of lowllives Like bees within their hives A weapon in my pocket to paint with lead these skies The rise of a lowlife A bee who's left its hive The barrel at your head will paint with blood these skies Drifter on the loose High on self-abuse I wish you all drop dead to stop this dog-days blues I'll pave my way Active shooter - Active shooter It's my field day Active shooter - Active shooter

Wake up call Counting off the days Cruel fate, forced upon you Unexpected countdown "And when you thought life was all set Your family, your comfort zone Your corner of joy..." It grows within Inbred therein Gun pointed at your head Sickness' next of kin Let the news sink in Accept that you're a has-been Fighting uselessly A battle you can't win "And they're coming for ya A stretcher to take you away Words of solace A comfy room to end your days..." A hope for treatment While you slowly die A death foretold Diguised by doctors' lies "Life expectancy: less than 3 months We'll try our best Have faith in the research..." It grows within Inbred therein Gun pointed at your head Sickness' next of kin Let the news sink in Accept that you're a has-been Fighting uselessly A battle you can't win A battle we won't ever win

White sterile rooms Morphine silence Numb and weak Consumed by radiations A shell of a man awaiting the end A quiet place for your last days Staring at the ceiling while your eyes look glazed Not knowing when it will happen Could be anyday Floating beetwen life and death in a drug-induced haze No tomorrow Life's sardonic turn Cold and lonely No loved ones will mourn Lights are fading Exhausted eyes roll back The final chapter Your body has collapsed White coats surround you Distant words Muffled sounds Another injection Involountary smile when chemicals set in A quiet place for your last days Staring at the ceiling while your eyes look glazed Flashes of your life pass before your eyes A last tear of regret An unjust demise No tomorrow Life's sardonic turn Cold and lonely No loved ones will mourn Lights are fading Exhausted eyes roll back The final chapter Your body has collapsed ...'Til we all meet there at the Iris' House

Distrust Empty words, broken promises Misleading eyes, a traitors' smile Your fruitless crime Swinging from a rope at the gallows of belief Watching while you turn and run Another maggot comes undone The more I grow old The more I get wary of your sickening kind When I disappear You should know the reason why Look at the knives in my back The more I grow old The more I get wary of your sickening kind Since I disappeared You should know you fucked up You'd better watch your back Distrust Secluded life Dodging your lies Standing at a crossroad I know well where to turn I'm making enemies by now I learned how to survive somehow You blossomed through mediocrity Like rotten seeds into concrete The more I grow old The more I get wary of your sickening kind When I disappear You should know the reason why Look at the knives in my back The more I grow old The more I get wary of your sickening kind Since I disappeared You should know you fucked up You'd better watch your back Pain on repeat Hellhounds on my trail Nowhere to be found On seas of distrust I sail Poker-faced when shit hits the fan An outcome so predictable Your foulness comes in disguise A parasite trying to feed off my pride I already died but no one realized it

Cold frozen heart Ascending to purity Estranged Leaving it all behind The day when I shut my blinds Closing you out Cutting off the world outside Walking out of the line Bridges' burning times I don't fit in, I don't comply Last trip - Rebirth Escapism through nihilism Estrangement Leaving it all behind The day when I shut my blinds Closing you out Cutting off the world outside Walking out of the line Bridges' burning times I won't fit in, I won't comply My scornful flight My elitist escape will leave a bitter taste A nihilist escapes when all is going to waste My elitist escape will leave a bitter taste A nihilist escapes when all is going to waste

Staring into darkness Unfathomable emptiness The ghost of joy rotting in the pit of abandonment Waiting for my absence Stranger to this world A godly abomination, the monster I became I curse your lives and hope that all love dies The cleansing of all human kind I curse your lives and hope that all love dies To turn all smiles into hopeless cries Take my pain and let it destroy you Terminal disease of all that you cherish A global tsunami of death Submerging this failure called mankind I curse your lives and hope that all love dies The cleansing of all human kind I curse your lives and hope that all love dies To turn all smiles into hopeless cries Bring forth the untimely end
