Track Name: Resentment
Listen up, you can take it from me, holding anger is poison - it breeds misery.This cell, one horrible year, now I'm sickened by what I once used to revere.The fuckin' stress of trying to thrive in this place, it seems like every day - a fuckin' arms race.Sitting, smoking, fuckin' wasting away, breeding your own contempt, what more can I say?

I just can't bear the weight That holds me down, that suffocates.Exuding from their pores,I breathe it in, taking more and more.I can tell it's changing me,Distorting me, and I couldn't see.Just how it's sinking in,Toxic temperaments, it already begins.

Listen up, you can take it from me, holding anger is poison - it breeds misery.This cell, one horrible year, now I'm sickened by what I once used to revere.The fuckin' stress of trying to thrive in this place, it seems like every day - a fuckin' arms race.
Sitting, smoking, fuckin' wasting away, breeding your own contempt/spreading dismal attitude, what more can I say?

This resentment,
A double edged sword,
As I lash out,
It harms me more and more and more.

I just can't bear the weight That holds me down, that suffocates.
Exuding from their pores,I breathe it in, taking more and more.
I can tell it's changing me,Distorting me, and I couldn't see.
Just how it's sinking in,Toxic temperaments, it already begins.
Track Name: Unchanging Misery
Nobody knows misery just as well as you,The man who wills it all, but nothing himself can do.

Looking deep inside is to the fountain of good,
But how can this be true? I just never understood.
I struggle with my anger, my quality of thought,
I struggle to maintain virtue, and the eagerness I sought.
Drifting all alone on a chartless, endless sea,
Paying homage to a formless beast, unchanging misery.
The strongest of emotions, is the fear of the unknown,
But you've willed it on yourself, now you're all on your own.

I'd love to understand the fucking cogs in your head,
Open it up and see them work, grasp just how you've been misled.
The snake that cannot cast its skin will soon be dead,
We took control and cut all ties, maybe now you'll speak the truth instead.

These winds of rage,
They blow inside of me,
I feel them building,
They beg to be set free.

I'd love to understand the fucking cogs in your head,
The tales you spin, the grief you sow, the caustic fucking shit you spread.
The snake that cannot cast its skin soon will be dead,
Regret's an excuse for those who've failed, now we'll succeed alone instead.

These winds of rage,
They blow inside of me,
I feel them building,
They beg to be set free.

NOBODY KNOWS JUST AS WELL AS YOU.

Drifting all alone on a chartless, endless sea,
Paying homage to a formless beast, unchanging misery.
The strongest of emotions, is the fear of the unknown,
But you've willed it on yourself, now you're all on your own.
