Self Titled Lyrics

Kill me!

Something aches
Bad things slither
My floors are burning down
And I can't find a window
This is medieval
This is cerebral
Suffocated
Melodramatic
Driven to the verge of
I make you my enemy
The nerves you sever
Can serve you better
In the blink of an eye
In the space of a second
Open my wrists
Give me my lessons

Tearing myself apart
From the things that make me hurt
Tearing myself apart
From the things that make me hurt
Tearing myself apart
From the things that make me hurt
Tearing myself apart
From the things that make me...
Tearing myself apart
From the things that make me hurt
Tearing myself apart
From the things that make me hurt
Tearing myself apart
From the things that make me hurt
Tearing myself apart
From the things that make me hurt


MFKR Lyrics

Tattered and Torn
That’s where my soul is worn
Tattered and Torn
That’s when I was born
Tattered and Torn
I broke away from me
Tattered and Torn
I knocked me to my knees
Tattered and Torn
I drink my own cells
Tattered and Torn
A decomposing well
Tattered and Torn
Roaches in my head
Tattered and Torn
I become the living dead
Tattered and Torn
Tearing myself apart from the
things that make me hurt
