Track Name: Sold You Out
I haven't the taste for
pacing the floor
wasting my time

And I'm sure
that this is the last time
I say it's the last time

The look in your eyes
surprise
when you realized
it was me who
sold you out

sold you out and outright
sold you out and outright
sold you out and out

I seem to have left you
in such a rotten way today
hey hey hey
I can see you in the rearview
sinking into the highway
by the way
you looked at me
as if to say
we should have done this
long ago
Track Name: Rats and Creeps
Hey, wait
we haven't opened the gate
said the satanist to the
state trooper in blue
as he cuffed us and threw us
in a crate with a painting
with a border of snakes
and the image of slaughter
done in blood and black water
think we ought to just
follow the orders along

And we pretend we understand
and shake our bones upon command
shake, rattle and roll
rake battling

We press along with no relief
and shake our skulls in disbelief
'cause we're not fans
of their particular brand of
lies and slander
rising up again

The rats and creeps
are in it together
under their thumbs
you act like you already know
with you
it's always the same
it hits you in the mouth
Track Name: Breech Born
Breech born
feet first
into this life of paperwork
where they misspell my name
constantly

I'd fight and grieve and bite
the hand that feeds
that tried to steal from me
all the same

Mother, father said
not to
take it all so
personally
If I own my mistakes
I expect them to do the same

So I apologize
but I'm certain that
I'm not sorry
If you don't like it, leave
the way you came
and I'll do the same
I'll go feet first
like the way I came
but I will kick and scream
until I'm free
