Track Name: The Bloodiest Angel, Give Me The Heat
Time flows almost inconstantly
The cosmos are unbearably large
And yet no matter how far I go
I can't escape my thoughts
I can see you, you know
The music has eyes of its own
You say you're quite disturbed by me
Of course, I get that a lot
What's inside your soul
It's the only place where I find solace
And I wish I only knew why
It seems so inviting
I can only describe it as womb-like
Where one would like to curl up and die
If you can open your heart to me
I'll spill mine right into your soul
You will learn to somehow find comfort
In the dead of night
Please come closer, my lovely dear
Are you still fighting to breathe right now
Just go to sleep and let your mind wander
And everything will be alright
What's inside your soul
It's the only place where I find solace
And I wish I only knew why
It seems so inviting
I can only describe it as womb-like
Where one would like to curl up and die
What's inside your soul
It's the only place where I find solace
And I wish I only knew why
It seems so inviting
I can only describe it as womb-like
Where one would like to curl up and die
Track Name: Drown
The warm light glows in the distance
It appears to be beckoning
It is a warning of dystopia
Prepare for the reckoning
The awful things that it shows to you
Make you want to scream
To force it all out, to drive the point home
With a laser beam
You can't forget those painful sights
No matter how much you drink
That would be counter-productive
As it hinders your ability to think
You need to reflect back upon your life
And all that you've done wrong
And come out into the open
Guided by this song
Track Name: Throat Polyp
Is it even possible to start what one finished
I'm in it to win it and I won't take "sin" for an answer
I'm flattered, but shattered, for it won't even matter
If you mistake me for one not a man, sir
You wouldn't be the first
The hate, it is baited, elated, and rated
A Pitchfork score of something with a decimal point
Shaken and baked and then cut with a rake to the face
And then blessèd with severed ligaments and joints
Preparing for the worst
Can you feel it coming
Can you see it going
Its fangs it is baring
Its claws it is showing
The beast is loose in town
Carry a smile with you always
It won't target those with one
If you start to panic
If you're anything but calm
Consider your life done
The blood in your body is drained as the rain falls
You're frantically searching for incisions or cuts
There isn't a single wound on your body
There isn't an orifice that surgery can shut
You're screaming for your life
You hear a growling coming under the earth's crust
The hounds of hell are barking cause they're having a feast
And all of your emotion fades quickly from your face
As you realize that you're the table's centerpiece
Run home and tell your wife
Can you feel it coming
Can you see it going
Its fangs it is baring
Its claws it is showing
The beast is loose in town
Carry a smile with you always
It won't target those with one
If you start to panic
If you're anything but calm
Consider your life done
The beast is loose in town
Carry a smile with you always
It won't target those with one
If you start to panic
If you're anything but calm
Consider your life done
Track Name: Sleep (Dumb Beatboxing Track)
(cat meows)
Me: Is that a cat?
Sschol: Yeah, I punched her in the spine.
Me: You know what, if you don't stop saying stuff like that, I'm gonna put you in one of my songs.
(Sschol laughs)

[AWFUL BEATBOXING GOES HERE]
Track Name: To Propagate Propaganda
I wish I knew what to say here
But I'm gone, so long
I hope you know that I'm still here
But I'll leave you this song
If you want to come find me
You muster your strength
I cannot vouch for your safety
Just the arduous length
I wish I knew what to say here
But I'm gone, so long
I hope you know that I'm still here
But I'll leave you this song
If you want to come find me
You muster your strength
I cannot vouch for your safety
Just the arduous length
