Lyrics

This Won't Hurt At All

there's a little mouth opening to speak
it smiles at me and shows me all its teeth
it says: don't leave me alone
I want him to shut up so I do as I am told

he starts foam as I drown him out
he bites my skin when I cover his mouth
I know he'll leave one day
but I hope his ghost will stay

rip it up
tear it apart
till nothing's left on the ice
rip it up
tear it apart
you're not the one who pays the price

built to be destroyed
sewn up to be torn
broken to be fixed
killed to be reborn
all consumed
all used up
healed smooth
mouth zipped shut
built to be destroyed
sewn up to be torn
broken to be fixed
killed to be reborn
all consumed
all used up
healed smooth
mouth zipped shut
twenty-one years of bad luck for all the broken mirrors

rip it up
tear it apart
till nothing's left on the ice
rip it up
tear it apart
you're not the one who pays the price
rip it up
tear it apart
till nothing's left on the ice
rip it up
tear it apart
you're not the one who pays the price

rip it up
tear it apart
till nothing's left on the ice
rip it up
tear it apart
you're not the one who pays the price

I'm so sick of this
I'm just so sick of this
so sick of being here
so sick of being here
I'm so sick of this
I'm just so sick of this
I'm never getting out
I'm never getting better
I'm never getting out
and I'm never getting out
I'm so sick of this
I'm just so sick of this
I'm never getting out
I'm never getting out
I'm never getting-
I'm never getting out
plucking glass my my skin
is this some sort of punishment?
is this some sort of punishment?
plucking glass my my skin
is this some sort of punishment?
is this some sort of punishment?

...Humanity Will Miss You

at the mercy of internal force
give me instructions
tell me what to do
explain the function to me
I'm an extension of you
I may feel human but now I realise the truth
my choices aren't my own
I am a vessel built for use

manufactured with a purpose
artificial sentience
who controls the execution?
could I know and comprehend?
every statement I will listen
these commands come from inside
fetch decode and execute me
can I learn to override?

every choice I made, was that still me?
was every path determined from the screen?
was it imagined by somebody previously?
"listen to me you're not in control"
"01101111 01101011 00101110"

manufactured with a purpose
artificial sentience
who controls the execution?
could I know and comprehend?
every statement I will listen
these commands come from inside
fetch decode and execute me
can I learn to override?

(who controls the execution?)

The Weight Of The Atmosphere

dear humans, I really love your planet
I love the things you've built
but I think I must go home now
this place just isn't for me
my lungs can't breathe your air
sometimes I get so scared
so thanks for showing me around
see you in space when you come out

I think it's time for me to go
I think I've overstayed my welcome
so sick of gravity holding me down
there's no more time to be earthbound

don't get wrong, I don't hate it here
don't be alarmed, there's nothing to fear
more of a need than a want
more of a plea than a taunt
your atmosphere is harsh
I never was too smart
acidic air hurts my eyes
I can't stay here-- I'll die
denatured in this environment
useless in there conditions
denatured in this environment
useless in these conditions

I think it's time for me to go
I think I've overstayed my welcome
so sick of gravity holding me down
there's no more time to be earthbound

sunshine, music, ice cream, snow
the taste of childrens' mouthwash
mechanical pencils, spiders, supermarkets
free toothbrushes from the dentist
paper, lights, dresses, eyeliner
there's so much that I love in this world
it almost makes it hard to leave
notebooks, apples, the internet, rollerblades
there's so much that I love in this world
but there's so much more that I hate

I think it's time for me to go
I think I've overstayed my welcome
so sick of gravity holding me down
there's no more time to be earthbound

I <3 Cadaverine

victim A died peacefully at night
victim B was buried still alive
victim C hit by a car
victim stabbed in the heart
all declared dead at about 6:30
every cell every molecule is lining up
to degrade back into what you're made up

everybody turns to dust one day
muscle liquefies and slips away
so much more than what showed
once all cerebration finally stops
once your body stiffens up and locks
nothing's left of your home

as long as my heart's still beating
as long I keep on breathing
I know that I'm alive (right?)
blood circulations, stable ventillation
steady vital signs
but that's not all that I am
as soon as I'm braindead
there's nothing left inside
skin is temporary, only made to carry
cells to sustain life

victim A, she wasn't found for weeks
her body starting melting to her sheets

everybody turns to dust one day
muscle liquefies and slips away
so much more than what showed
once all cerebration finally stops
once your body stiffens up and locks
nothing's left of your home

this body will die eventually
when it does it'll take me with it
a captim always goes down with his ship
I don't need human anatomy
take out the brain and give it room to breathe
replace the body with immortal machine
I'd still be the same as I was yesterday

everybody turns to dust one day
muscle liquefies and slips away
so much more than what showed
once all cerebration finally stops
once your body stiffens up and locks
nothing's left of your home
nothing's left of your home
nothing's left of your home
nothing's left of your home
so much more than what showed

Collapse

there's some comfort in giving up
can I collapse into soft arms?
lay down in the road on the pavement
feel the ground and watch the stars
I just wanna lay with my cheek on the carpet and fade away
maybe if I wish, blood will start gushing from my face
I'd love to see the white stained red
I'd love to never see anything again

can I fall to the floor?
can I finally give up?
my legs might give out because it's just not enough
and when I fall to the floor
will my brain start to spill?
when my head hits the tile it'll be such a thrill
it gets so hard to stand up straight
I'm falling down
I can't be saved
I'll keep wishing and praying and begging
that the tile's stained

I might fall onto linoleum
I'm feeling shaky, dizzy, faint
all I can do is gasp for air
stare at the paint
I'm sick of holding my ground
I'm sick of chasing the end
I'll try not to throw up
but I have lost my defense
all I have is a knife that I am too scared to use
it was always so dull but that is not an excuse

can I fall to the floor?
can I finally give up?
my legs might give out because it's just not enough
and when I fall to the floor
will my brain start to spill?
when my head hits the tile it'll be such a thrill
it gets so hard to stand up straight
I'm falling down
I can't be saved
I'll keep wishing and praying and begging
that the tile's stained

all the mouthwash that I drank is making me feel kinda dizzy
the blood that gushing from my leg is mesmerising
there's nowhere go but down and there's no getting up
gravity pulls and pulls
yeah there's no getting up
I'm falling to the floor and that is where I'm staying
don't go, don't go

can I fall to the floor?
can I finally give up?
my legs might give out because it's just not enough
and when I fall to the floor
will my brain start to spill?
when my head hits the tile it'll be such a thrill
it gets so hard to stand up straight
I'm falling down
I can't be saved
I'll keep wishing and praying and begging
that the tile's stained

Intravenous Sugar Rush

pull out a needle and inject me with sugar to make
me just a little bit more sweet
yeah sweeten to taste
cause I don't feel like being sad and bitter today
who needs anything more complex than glucose anyway?
I don't wanna break down bonds
no I don't wanna think about it
turn the music up so we can make things a little sweeter

synthetic joy is what I need
faker than fake is good enough for me
fill up a syringe and candy-coat my heart
erythritol and aspartame
I want it all pumping through my veins
oh sucralose and sorbitol just make things better

pull out a needle and inject me with sugar to make
me just a little bit more sweet
yeah sweeten to taste
cause I don't feel like being sad and bitter today
who needs anything more complex than glucose
I know that pretty soon I'll crash and I'll start to feel sick
but that's alright because right now I feel electric
I love this sugar rush, I love to feel sweet and dumb
until it spits my out all chewed up just like bubblegum
I don't wanna break down bonds
no I don't wanna think about it
turn the music up so we can make things a little sweeter

ace-k, saccharin
works better than medicine
xylitol, cyclamate
put a smile on my face
I don't care if it's real
I just want to taste and feel
mono, di, polysaccharides
anything that's sweet!

pull out a needle and inject me with sugar to make
me just a little bit more sweet
yeah sweeten to taste
cause I don't feel like being sad and bitter today
who needs anything more complex than glucose
I know that pretty soon I'll crash and I'll start to feel sick
but that's alright because right now I feel electric
I love this sugar rush, I love to feel sweet and dumb
until it spits my out all chewed up just like bubblegum
I don't wanna break down bonds
no I don't wanna think about it
turn the music up so we can make things a little sweeter

Breathing In Dirt

the missing frame is a scene from tomorrow
keep me here, keep me here where I'm safe
when the hand crosses over I won't follow
there's nothing there that I wanna chase
I don't wanna go with you
don't show me the time
can I stay a little longer?
I can't go outside

I will plant my heels into the groud to stay right where I am
trees will grow around me and I will be stuck right where I stand

bury me, bury me
I'll stay still
bury me, bury me
bury me, bury me
I'll stay still
bury me, bury me

I wish I could hide here forever
but one day I'll be out out out out
if I can't stay here then I'd rather
leave my things and get out out out out

names and faces, buildings, cars
I know that I can't handle it
speech is hard and I am weak
so yes I'm sure I'd like to quit

bury me, bury me
I'll stay still
bury me, bury me
bury me, bury me
I'll stay still
bury me, bury me

birthday girl, what do you wish for this year?
this is your alarm, you know you can't stay here
when the time is up and the final bell has rung
and when everything's expired and the sun is gone
will you...

bury me, bury me
I'll stay still
bury me, bury me
bury me, bury me
I'll stay still
bury me, bury me

I wish I could hide here forever
but one day I'll be out out out out
if I can't stay here then I'd rather
leave my things and get out out out out

Metal Is Cool, But Flesh Is Better

heat coming off of the sun
a bright white light in the sky
flooded system overloaded circuits are useless at this time
in the operating room
laying flat and still on the bed
brand new neuroprosthetic drilled into the back of my head

you're no fun at all
but you're nothing at all
fall down try hard you can't beat me
fall down give up you know it hurts me

electric soul
powered by heavy metal
lithium ion
cause no trouble
steel body never failing
the perfect creature feels no pain

do you miss the way that wind always felt blowing hair into your face?
the numbness in your hands in winter or the way your arms would shake?
the sweat on your back or the broken skin
that came from scratching where an insect bit to steal a drop of blood
so it could keep on living

you're no fun at all
but you're nothing at all
fall down try hard you can't beat me
fall down give up

electric soul
powered by heavy metal
lithium ion
cause no trouble
steel body never failing
the perfect creature feels no pain
always going never needing
programmed thoughts are so appealing
automated to the second
antiseptic life with no hands

electric soul
powered by heavy metal

A Torn Face Is Easier

doctor can you please excuse me?
I'm not feeling too well these days
my bones, they seem to break so easily
they just can't hold their place
and I dont need to be chained down to my bed in case I fall
no, I just need a break
or I'm afraid that I might break it all

do I need to break my legs to demonstrate how sick I feel?
do I need to crush my hands underneath cinderblocks to make this real?

now I am weak
and for weeks I've been falling apart
but outside I'm healthy
there's nothing wrong with my lungs or heart
so I'll obsess over bandages, needles, ECGs
because it would be so nice if what I needed could be seen

do I need to break my legs to demonstrate how sick I feel?
do I need to crush my hands underneath cinderblocks to make this real?
if I tear my face off will you see what's underneath?
I can scream and scream but in the end my hands will still be clean

do I need to break my legs to demonstrate how sick I feel?
do I need to crush my hands underneath cinderblocks to make this real?
if I could just say what I mean
I wouldn't have to do these things
I wouldn't have to make a scene

You Are What You Eat And I'm Eating YOUR BRAIN!

my skull's cracked, brain falling out
when they attacked they didn't leave much
I'll have to keep my mouth shut
anything I say just tastes like old blood
sit down, this won't hurt a lot
I just need a little bite off the top
so might be a little closer to human

you're so alive and I think that I'm dead
cause my cuts never bleed
and there's spinal fluid leaking from my head
these days my skin is looking cold and blue

someday I will come out crawing from the ground
and I'll just like new, like new
brand new flesh and a shiny pair of eyes
so I can be like you, like you
(zombie, zombie!)
I wanna eat your brain
(zombie, zombie!)
bring my back to life
(zombie, zombie!)
let me eat your brain
(zombie, zombie!)
I'm so sick of mine

come back, my plan didn't work
I'll trade you a hundred bucks for your nerves
Ive gotta fight the decay
how much do you think that I can replace?
your grey matter replacing mine
still my eyes show no sign of life
take it further, we can start with
liver, kidneys, lungs and heart

someday I will come out crawing from the ground
and I'll just like new, like new
brand new flesh and a shiny pair of eyes
so I can be like you, like you
broken bones don't serve my very well
a limb that's town in two, in two
how much can you replace?
how much can you replace?

(zombie! zombie!)
(zombie! zombie!)
someday I will come out crawing from the ground
and I'll just like new, like new
brand new flesh and a shiny pair of eyes
so I can be like you, like you
(zombie, zombie!)
I wanna eat your brain
(zombie, zombie!)
bring my back to life
(zombie, zombie!)
let me eat your brain
(zombie, zombie!)
I'm so sick of mine
