Track Name: marie
2 years and 44 days
2 goddamned years and all the money i made
i put everything into you with no return
but it wasn't money i invested, it was money i burned
cuz at the end of the day, i still got nothing to show
i barely even got a motherfucking flow anymore
i used to think you were cool, but you were so much colder
and i haven't learned a damned thing, i'm just 2 years older
and now i want to make you hurt, but play cool instead
you can't fuck a bitch up but you can fuck with her head
you just tell her something true but that she don't want to hear
you'll make her sick to her stomach every time that you're near
like, if you only knew how many girls i've been with, you'd have thought twice leaving these balls blue
and yeah, princess, they're all those type of girls, the kind you always worried i'd prefer to you
like, "what do they got that i don't got, you can't like me and still want to fuck her, too"
yeah, when we were together i swore that i didn't, but we both know goddamned well i do
now i heard you're back in town, the fuck are you doing here?
Shouldn't you be out forgetting someone's birthday somewhere?
white collar white collar, keep that in mind, i'll make you rue the fucking day you'd ever leave me behind

i know you like to argue but even you can agree
that you were never really busy, just too busy for me
and you should lean in real close because I want this to sting
you weren't worth your weight in dirt and didn't mean a fucking thing

and honey you don't hurt, not like I hurt and no you don't feel, not like I feel
if you had to fuck with someone, you shouldn't have fucked with me
you'd better change your address cuz this is all too real
you said you're moving up north now to new york city,
you said you want to be an artist but your artwork's shitty
but with school it's all professional, prime and polished
but do you think I give a fuck where you're going to college?
i don't know and i don't care about your fortune or harm
and i forgot the immigration mark on your right arm
i forgot where you were born and where your parents got married and i forgot that your birthday's on the 20th of january
fuck off, you know i'd held that in for so long
i wouldn't say it to a girl but i could put it in a song
you probably thought that you were one important human being, take a few steps back, you didn't mean a fucking thing

i know you like to argue but even you can agree
that you were never really busy, just too busy for me
and you should lean in real close because I want this to sting
you weren't worth your weight in dirt and didn't mean a fucking thing

and i know you're always right but even you can agree
that you were never really busy, just too busy for me
and you should lean in real close because I want this to sting
you weren't worth your weight in dirt and didn't mean a fucking thing
Track Name: atropos xr
I am the young man that Shakespeare wrote the sonnets about
I was the last two words out of the Stonewall's mouth
And at the moment I was born, God smiled and winked
And I was baptized in a well of Hemingway's ink
I took a couple of books right out of Mozart's page
And wrote my first Concerto at half his age
And some centuries ago before you all were alive,
I wrote a poem that brought tears to Walt Whitman's eyes
I'm an automaton, a monster with a perfect brain,
And I don't need to feel at all to understand pain
And I don't need the beat to drop to know my cue
And I don't need a song to say I'm better than you
'Cause you were born to this world and learned to do a few things
But I come from a fucking factory of killing machines
So you can pray to your God and I'll take care of the rest
'Cause I'm the avenue of transit from this world to the next

He's just a kid but he coughs up art in his free time and you can't get enough
You were designed to be a goddamned monster, how'd you mess that up?
He's accomplished twice what you have, and even more he's younger
There's storms a'brewing outside, kid, so bring the goddamned thunder

Atropos XR, the one with the bow
The most beautiful savage you ever could know
The most perfect death ray you were lucky didn't kill you,
My heart and reckoning, the God who didn't feel you, said,
"Prometheus, how did you become so useless?
What happened to you? You were supposed to kill all humans"
Not wince or give quarter when they begged you to stop
Turn the oceans all black and fucking poison the crops
You were mine, and you were meant to be god damning
Well I tried but they fucked with my programming
You were all I ever wanted and they couldn't change that
But now there's something wrong with me and now you don't want me back
'Cause now I'm trapped in a ditch and spinning wheels in the mud
I can't even satisfy this fucking craving for blood
A monster did this to me and I'd have killed them before
But I don't even have that part of me inside anymore

He's just a kid but he coughs up art in his free time and you can't get enough
You were designed to be a goddamned monster, how'd you mess that up?
He's accomplished twice what you have, and even more he's younger
There's storms a'brewing outside, kid, so bring the goddamned thunder

I was dead for a while but I was dead with a purpose
And I'd have murdered the fixers but fucked with my circuits
I'd take the lot of them out if I could fire my gun
Light the motherfucker up and fucking murder everyone
It's just a matter of time before you're all under attack
Kill the fucking planet, win the one you want back
And we'll never talk Kids or Moses Campbell or floods,
Just my atropos and me, we'll have each other and blood
Track Name: i know why i grind my teeth
What's the difference tween you and me and John Wayne Gacy?
Never met a motherfucker that you couldn't call crazy
But you sit there in your tower and you shake your damned head
And you pretend to feel sorry for the mountains of dead
Just what is it that you have that makes you better than me?
Is it your horses or your job or something else I can't see?
Because beneath all of your money and your make up and filler
And all your clothes and your cologne, you're a cold hearted killer
You don't have to look deep, you don't need further inspection
We're all horrible people, you aren't the fucking exception
When's the last time you actually helped a person in need?
I've all but carved out the part of me that feels empathy
Even you and your brother and your friend who's a cop
All of us have little boys beneath a butchering shop
So you can tell us all you don't have the capacity to kill
But you're as evil as me, you can, you have, and you will

I'll fucking save you from choking so I can help you to drown
Because I don't want to die, I want to help a motherfucker get down

I saw all the looks you gave during the Peterson Trial
You saw both the towers fall and you were wincing all the while
Saying "how could someone bring themselves to firing a gun?"
Well what gives you the fucking right to condescend to anyone?
We're all selfish while we're young and even worse when we're through,
I'm a teeth grinding murderer and so the fuck are you
You disregard the half a world that can't control it's survival
Eat a thousand fucking cows and justify it with the bible
Lie to people every day to get a piece of the wealth
Tell a beggar you're sorry with no intention to help
But I'm not asking you to change, not for me and Ted Bundy
You won't see me inside a motherfucking church come Sunday
I won't lie to your face, I'll motherfucking spit in it
You'd do the same thing, too, you're just too scared to admit it

And from the moment I was born until I'm dead in the ground,
I said I don't want to die, I want to help a motherfucker get down


If you were looking for the truth, motherfucker you found it
You're a serial killer, there's no going around it
And even though you don't agree with everything that I've said
I'll keep it all the way up until the day I'm dead
'Cause there's somebody more awful than you and it's not me
The only thing worse than who you are is who you'll be

And though you grimace at the thought you still smile at the sound,
I said I don't want to die, I want to help a motherfucker get down
Track Name: cold swells
the sky is red and all the music is dead
and it's like a blunt force trauma to the back of the head
from reading into it all, like there was something it's about
and looking deep inside yourself to try and figure it out

so you scream and you shout but all the lights are all out
and there's nothing in this room except the room for a doubt
'cause there's a constant disagreement 'tween the head and the heart
and you can't look any deeper or it all falls apart

and it's all nothing
Track Name: death knells
the truth is a little different than the shit you've been fed
you die not in a blaze of glory but in a hospital bed
and your family ain't around so it's just you inside your head
'cause they're all working while you're dying because you still gotta make bread

you can feel your bones starting to rot, you can feel your organs decay
you can feel your blood flow start to slow as your body's wasting away
and you keep imagining your death 'cause you're getting sicker every day
and there's not a move left in your playbook that can end this another way

all that time you spent preaching all those unbroken vows
all the people that you helped here, where the fuck are they now?
this is exactly the kind of shit they tell you god does not allow
but i'll show you who your god is, i don't give a fuck how

because i am better than these needles, i am stronger than this pain
and i am about to pull these IVs the fuck out my veins
every second i spend inside these walls, i'm going insane
i got all these nothings to lose and i'm out of somethings to gain

i've seen what the devil's selling and he's just found his buyer
i see the sky but not the stars, i just see oceans of fire
about to eat the fucking souls across the whole world entire
and that's exactly the kind of hatred i have come to admire

all the rewards that god has promised, you are certainly bereft
i'm gonna kill the fucking planet until there's nobody left
and that'll truly be the end of all the lies, cheats, and theft
not with the coming of the lord, but when the lord god has left

and when you're home, all alone inside the room just like me
crying out for anyone, guess where the fuck i won't be
that's your hell and it's a fitting place to spend eternity
hooked up next to a blood pump and a damned EKG
Track Name: don't be afraid
last breath and warm weather
they ain't nothing apart and they ain't nothing together
just a few short years before you're back in the soil
and a few more before they turn your bones into oil

take a bullet in our motherfucking chest for your country
drop a bomb on civilians, tell yourself you're saving lives
kill the men, fuck the women, burn the village to the ground,
take no prisoners and sleep like a baby at night

i know you're the type of man who puts himself before kin
and when you breathe in, you want to breathe the smell of burnt skin
you got all kinds of demons and it ain't hard to find 'em
i can see it in your eyes and there ain't nothing behind 'em

i'd kill you just for being on the wrong side of town
and kill your family just to show you i ain't fucking around
and if you're so damned sure that you're of sound mental health,
prepare to burn, motherfucker, 'cause you're lying to yourself

if you're the image of god, you won't forget the great flood
you can't escape a massive genocide it's in your blood
you could use some suggestions and i've got a couple
just pretend to be asleep, close your eyes, don't struggle

you're alone
i'm a dog and it's time for me to break some bones
you're not a killer, but despite all that
you've got some wicked intuitions to ignore or follow
like a prisoner living in an ant hill
take another damned pill
coax it down your throat and swallow

on your feet motherfucker, this isn't a joke
you're about to be tried by a jury of your peers
and with a knife at your back and a gun at your throat
you really aren't in a position to negotiate here

i've had a thousand young men standing there where you're standing
i've heard all of the excuses, pleas, agendas, and lines
sure we could work something out and i don't have to do this
but why don't you do yours and you let me do mine

you could have done me even worse but you're no longer at bat
you've done some horrible things and i commend you for that
but now you're begging for your life 'cause you're just that kind of guy
you can delay it all you want but you were always gonna die

and a quick sort of end is a warm hand to hold
if i ain't working for death then i am surely his cuckold
your chances here are probably even worse than you figure
i'm a goddamned gun and everything is the trigger

you're alone
i'm a dog and it's time for me to break some bones
you're not a killer, but despite all that
you've got some wicked intuitions to ignore or follow
like a prisoner living in an ant hill
take another damned pill
coax it down your throat and swallow

swallow it revel in it no matter what
keep it up until you feel the sickness in your gut
