Track Name: Dead Meat
Hurt
Kill

I’ve been trying to find my friends
But I forgot they’re all in my head
I’ve been trying to kill myself
But I forgot I’m already dead

And I would die a thousand deaths
Before I’d live again
I could have eternal life
But I choose death instead

I choose death
Or did death choose me?

I’ve been looking around
And all I see is sanity
Where did I go wrong?
What is this secret you keep?
Why am I so weak?
What is this sickness in my speech?

I’ve been trying to look myself in the mirror and say
That I’m okay with who I am and where I’ve been and what I’ve done
But I’m such a bad liar
I’ve been trying to look myself in the mirror and say
That it’s okay, that I’m still straight, that I’m just fine
But I don’t trust this tongue of mine

Do it
Kill
Face down on the concrete
I always said I’d never shed a tear for dead meat
Track Name: Losing My Mind
Set it off

I, I, I swear I’ve seen this all before, it looks so familiar
But I just can’t place it in my mind
I, I, I swear I’ve walked this exact street with these same two feet, but I
I just can’t pace it, I don’t have time

To every person in the back of the room
Who crosses their arms and thinks they can do what I do
Come walk a mile in my shoes
And maybe then you’ll see
It’s not as easy as you think it would be

I, I, I think I’m losing my mind
I, I, I think I’m losing my mind
But I tell my doctors I’m feeling just fine, even though
I, I, I think I’m losing my mind

I, I, I swear I’ve written this line before, it sounds so familiar
But I can’t just sing it in my mind
I, I, I’ve got this raging beast inside just waiting to grab that mic
So I just let go and close my eyes

To all the people in the back of the room
Crossing their arms and scoffing at everything I do
Come walk a mile in my shoes
And maybe then you’ll see
It’s not as easy as you think it would be

I, I, I think I’m losing my mind
I, I, I think I’m losing my mind
But I tell my doctors I’m feeling just fine, even though
I, I, I think I’m losing my mind

I think I’ve lost my mind
I think I’ve lost my mind
I think I’ve lost my mind
I think I’ve lost it
Track Name: The Knife and the Dying Dream
I’m a bridge torcher
A tortured performer
A victim of abuse who is shorter when cornered
If there’s one thing I know, it’s that I’m never enough, but…

I’ve got a knife in my hand and a dying dream
Oh, yes, I’ve got a knife in my hand and a dying dream

God in Heaven
I need divine intervention
To escape this detention
At least divert my attention
I’ve got the right intentions

I’m just sick
Yeah, I’m sick in the head
And every morning I wake up
I curse and I wish I was dead

Everything I touch, it turns to rust
And everything I love crumbles to dust

I’ve got a knife in my hand and a dying dream (Do it)
I will die on my own terms or I will not die at all
You were absent during the climb
And now you’ve come to watch me fall

I’ve lived a life of suffering
I seek only peace
I’ll die a death of sweet relief
But only if you’ll let me

God in Heaven
I need divine intervention
To escape this detention
Can’t you divert my attention?
I swear I’ve got the right intentions
I’m just sick

Oh, yes, I’m sick in the head
And every night when I lay down to sleep
Oh, I wish I was dead

I’ve got a knife in my hand and a dying dream
I drag the blade vertically
There will be no resuscitating me
Track Name: Wear Your Skin
What I would give to wear your skin
Yeah
What I would give to wear your skin

Well, everyone I know has this perfect little life
In their perfect little home with their perfect little wife
No troubles, no struggle
A perfect stranger to pain and strife

When I look in the mirror
I don’t recognize the man I see
Oh, how I wish I could be you
And how I wish you were me

The thoughts in my brain
They are laced with unbridled disdain
And I can’t remember
The last time I felt this insane

What I would give to wear your skin
Go!
Yeah
What I would give to wear your skin
I wouldn’t waste an inch

When I look in the mirror
No, I don’t recognize the man I see
Oh, how I wish I could be you
And how I wish you were me

Well, everything I see is just conspiracy
Like this whole godforsaken world is ganging up on me
But I see you, and I want to be you
I’ll wear your skin like a suit

I’ll wear your skin
And I’ll live your life over and over again
Over and over again

When I look in the mirror
I don’t recognize the man I see
Oh, how I wish I could be you
And how I wish you were me
Oh, just let me wear your skin
Oh, come on, you gotta let me wear your skin
I want to wear your skin
Why won’t you let me wear your skin?
Track Name: Our Father
Our father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
But it doesn’t matter what creed you claim
Because we all bleed the same

I wish your issue with authority
Didn’t bleed your well of faith so dry
And I wish your issue with uncertainty
Didn’t pull that veil over your eyes

If you believe in right and wrong, then you believe in good and evil
(Break the barrier)
Underneath, we’re flesh and bone, just ordinary people
So you can keep your judging stares, all men are created equal

Our father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
But you keep twisting the scriptures
So human beings are to blame

I wish your issue with authority
Didn’t bleed your well of hope so dry
And I wish your issue with uncertainty
Didn’t blind your prying eyes

Commanded by the hand of god
To judge the few?
God isn’t the problem
It’s people like you

Commanded by the hand of god
To judge my views? I doubt it
God isn’t the problem
It’s people like you

Don’t let mankind ruin your faith
Track Name: Rape Me
Rape me
You know that I’m too weak to speak my mind
Rape me
You know you want to, I can see your lust eating you alive

My body used to be a temple
Why do you think I’m sober?
Why do you think I’m able to make a choice?

No libido, no desire
You robbed me of my freedom
You robbed me of…

My body is not your property
No means no

With every kiss you steal
And every touch you sneak
And every lie you spit
You cut me so deep

Rape me
Well, was it something I was wearing at the time?
Rape me
So tell me again how I was begging for it with my eyes

Who died and made you queen?
And what makes you think that you own my body?
Hurt

So blame the victim
You think you’ll get away with it
No means no means no

My body used to be a temple
Why do you think I’m sober?
Why do you think I’m able to fight back?

No libido
No desire
You robbed me of my freedom
You robbed me of my fire… fire

Rape me
If you can sleep at night with this weighing on your conscience
Rape me
If you can live with yourself knowing what you’ve done

Rape me
Don’t let me stop you
Don’t let me stand in your way
