dctedora This album has deliciously evil guitars and a brutally precise rhythm section. Aliki's vocals are as metal as a horde of orcs swinging morning stars, without sacrificing clarity or nuance. Favorite track: Kick You When You're Down.

Line up in the streets Lowering your head Complaining and whispering We've all wound up dead You're pushing me Trying to take my place You're scared to death Can't stare me in the face I won't back down I'll enjoy the sight Bark but no bite You're all flee with no fight Shut your mouth Nothing left to say Your time is up It ends today Pulling all the stops Petty plans in store Aces up your sleeve Territorial war I won't back down I'll enjoy the sight Bark but no bite You're all flee with no fight Kick you when you're down

Fractured 03:21
I don't appreciate Looks I'm getting Got better things to do than sit fretting What you think of me, How you'd like things to be Conforming // as I fade into obscurity Killing the past Burning the cast Creating total // lack of contrast Your judgement comes fast Feels like a farce A threat // that can't last How many times did you mess up How many times did you give up How many times did you retrace Only to have reality spit in your face I have been there and I've lost count I've fought, failed and fallen out Fractured false // fantasies Fist in my face // holding keys We don't need See eye to eye Done my time Lived the lie What you say Shows decay Logic displays Simplicity Get on your feet Ignore conceit And endorse // utter replete Clean out your cuts Pull out your guts This case // is shut How many times did you mess up How many times did you give up How many times did you retrace Only to have reality spit in your face I have been there and I've lost count I've fought, failed, fallen out Fractured false // fantasies Fist in my face // holding keys (I am done)

Give me that prescription I don't want the pills I just want the warnings Telling me they kill Show me every needle You want me to use I'm to ignore the burning May cause death Loss of hearing, loss of sense, loss of sight May cause cancer But don't worry everything will be alright May cause numbness Swelling, shaking, sweating, sensation spinning Heavy bleeding But overall you propose this is healing May cause death May cause cancer May cause numbness May cause heavy bleeding You see that it's not working So you just up the dose Don't want to keep on trying No, you're not getting close I don't think that you're listening What are you trying to mend Don't tell me that you're helping May cause death Loss of hearing, loss of sense, loss of sight May cause cancer But don't worry everything will be alright May cause numbness Swelling, shaking, sweating, sensation spinning Heavy bleeding But overall you propose this is healing May cause death May cause cancer May cause numbness May cause heavy bleeding

Bones 03:24
Surgery lights, stripped stark Beaten and raped, drowned dark Neglected rejected unknown alone And someone who held me once Betrayed and broken, backstab Decay and lust, ludicrous lab Infected projected pain gain And someone who loved me once I have memories that don't belong and aren't own Take them back, I disown everything to my bones Neglected, rejected, infected, projected Mugged and bloodied, sad soaked Locked inside, stale smoke Informed deformed amused accused And someone who held me once War and junta, vile vote Powder and grass, quarterly quote Illusion confusion hysterical hope And someone who loved me once I have memories that don't belong and aren't own Take them back, I disown everything to my bones Informing, deforming, illusion, confusion (Come down off your pedestal Step away from the Gatling gun Stop trying to fire at me I have nowhere left to run)

Denial 03:37
Take everything // I have from me All that I want // all I can be Take everything // I need away Every soul I crushed in my way Legs are mangled // my mind tangled You've no idea // how bad it gets I'll take you up // on every bet Ready aim go // Never was set Denial! Denial! Not a hope to reconcile Denial! Denial! Shuffle up in single file Denial! Denial! You know I'd walk a thousand miles To punch you in the face I can taste // the bitter pain Blood in my mouth // nothing to gain Tension in my arms // anger in my veins Trying hard to keep hold on the reigns Rinse and repeat // Die out in the heat Steal my soul // I am whole I don't need // anyone I will never come undone Denial! Denial! Not a hope to reconcile Denial! Denial! Shuffle up in single file Denial! Denial! You know I'd walk a thousand miles To punch you in the face All gone for nought All done for nothing What's the point? What did I gain? I'd punch you in the face You're a typical case And I will see you lose this race All gone for nought All done for nothing What's the point? What did I get? I'd punch you in the face You're a typical case And I will see you lose this race
