Track Name: Monoliths - Daze (I)
awakened daze
dark mist and a smoldering haze
blood on my feet and oblivion from above
charred chords fill the night
what on earth has become
this prophet was false
no way out
wake of extinction
clear and present danger
of all these fears
Track Name: Monoliths - Ejecta (II)
this sun will consume
these fires consume
all this faith
all this hope
this robe
I’m at the end of this rope
sulfur consumes the
vibrant
violent
environment around me
Track Name: Monoliths - Cascade (III)
as i take in my final breath
thoughts of you
endorphines rushing
I've never known another love like you
stitched images in my brain
blue eyes
last waking thought of you will be sublime
crying and sobbing while I die like the rest
ill never know a love like you.
stitched images in my brain
blue eyes
last waking thought of you will be sublime
my face on fire
i am a liar
face on fire
i will repent
Track Name: Monoliths - Lysergide
lost in a sky of diamonds
euphoric unconsciousness
emotional deception
violates logic and reason
waves of sorrow
conquer free
letting this take over
will be the end of me
seductive husk
slithers sentiments
forced through the cunt
torn through the teeth
impotent, fracture free (or so it seems)
secrete submarine
bottom feeder
discharge of the sea
pure intentions shed
disease infects hope
mother with selective love
banshee, light as a dove
perception unknown
caught in the undertow
strenuous thoughts
torturing trust
eviscerate this heart
tunnel out my tumor
I cast you out to the ocean
a burial, fit for a queen
you have my crown
take a bow
lysergide miscarriage
Track Name: Monoliths - Dys
defective delicate dysfunction
cemented infinite aggression
children void of hope and direction
mothers with pill popping addictions

bile in my throat
white as a ghost
bile in my throat
white as a ghost
bile in my throat
white as a ghost
bile in my throat
i'll hold back

emotions forge dreamlike convection
bound to decrease into secretion
in the burning heat of cremation
I beg for the same demise

bile in my throat
white as a ghost
bile in my throat
white as a ghost
bile in my throat
white as a ghost
bile in my throat
i'll hold back

you are not well
take to the trees
and do not forget to
and I quote “burn in hell”

this is not what you call home
this is not what you would call a home
this is not what you call home
this is not what you would call a home

children left alone
dead in the stove
breathe free
a sigh of relief

this is not what you call home
this is not what you would call a home
this is not what you call home
this is not what you would call a home

children left alone
dead in the stove
break free
a sigh of relief

Enter this sick dysfunction
this sick is dysfunction
bleeds me fucking dry
Track Name: Wounded Knee - Roads With No Names
walk these roads, these desolate plains,
my mind wanders, skin stays the same.
weak need shelter, forged by the strong.
but i never asked for this.
i never said i'd be your fucking god.
Track Name: Wounded Knee - Nature of Man
there is a reason i have thrived, and its not because i am brave,
there is no honor, just conquering of slaves; and the hope that i'll die soon, i'm tired of surviving.
the only thing that separates you and i is brutal, rational truth.
the only reason nature bows to us is brutal, rational truth.
(the reason nature bows to us is brutal and mysterious)
i always thought i'd live forever, but that was in my youth.
now i know i'll live forever, but died inside of you.
Track Name: Wounded Knee - Carcosa
i guess that i was born this way, i became of product of my environment; complacent and submissive.
but give a wolf three walls, and he'll eat his own child to escape being trapped.
i was deaf to their cries for mercy.
but at least i'll go on; living, losing searching.
when the world turns upside down, a pawn becomes a king.
