Lyrics Edit

Black dirty teeth,

In the crease Was the proof, too good to be believed?

It’s the cunt with the tongue.

Who belongs on broken knees

So far it occurs to me

That everybody in the world is afraid of me

Just one more sin and down we go

But the news is out

And I think I'm going to kill myself

Fuck myself,

Or tell myself

About the only thing that matters now

We bury what we fear the most

Approaching original violence

Is the silence where you hide it?

Cause I don't recognize you anymore

To each his own

Life can do with one less watered-down excuse

If this is over you can tell me it's no use

Use,

Just tell me it's over

Today we will deceive our better selves

Into assimilating pain from something else

Put on your face and show me why

Behind the scenes we had to simply comply

Now the community doesn't feel any better than it used to be

I want to be a judge in a criminal case

You covered up,

Did you cultivate?

Be yourself, not yourself, know yourself

'Cause no one seems to know you now

We carry what we can't control

Approaching original violence

In the silence there's a nihilist

Who doesn't care and never did

To each his own

Life can do with one less watered-down excuse

There comes a time when we can't take the same abuse

If this is over you can tell me it's no use

Use

Drug out, pissed on, everything's the same

Bitch and moan, it doesn't matter, nothing's going to change

I don't want to watch another brother fucking die

So discarded, fallen by the side

Don't tell me it's the only way

Just another reason why you never take the bait

The trials, the scheming,

The burden of the beast

Both your faces turn your back on

Everything you fought to save a dream

Now that it’s over…

When this is over…

We are the angels, fear to tread

Approaching original violence

We're the silence, we'll deny it

We can't continue on like this

To each his own

Life can do with one less watered-down excuse

There comes a time when we can't take the same abuse

My god, it would've taken just one word to stay from you

Now that this is over you can tell me it's no use

Now that this is over you can tell me it's no use

Use,

Just tell me it's over

It doesn't matter what you say

It doesn't matter what you do

We can't continue on like this
