Track Name: Parasite
The signs have spoken
Parasites everywhere I see
Your bones have broken
At this point will it heal back again?
Tearing my skin open
As the feet of dirt sink into me
Burn it up, burn it down
Suffocate me; did I drown?

These people leave me such a distaste
Us trying to fit in but I'm not a puzzle you can just squeeze in
I'm telling you [Fuck you]

You fucking parasite, you can't just get it right
You fucking parasite, how can you sleep at night?
You fucking parasite, you don't know wrong from right
How can you sleep at night, you fucking parasite

All I can say is I fucking hate you
Hate you 'til I die, hate whoever made you
I'm telling you, I'm telling you
You drive me fucking crazy
At the end of it it's me and only me against the hazy days

You people leave me such a distaste
I'm trying to fit in but I'm not a puzzle you can just squeeze in
I'm telling you [Fuck you]

You fucking parasite, you can't just get it right
You fucking parasite, how can you sleep at night?
You fucking parasite, you don't know wrong from right
How can you sleep at night, you fucking parasite?
Track Name: Lost At Sea
Unforgettable beings is what we are
It's what lives in you and me
It's obvious too difficult to see
While we stray from it all to get lost at sea
[Lost at sea, never meant to be]

I need to know, what's the fuel that drives me away
While I just pass it by, it all
Memories to drive you insane
Across from the place of disposable memoirs
Of the image they stick in our brains

There's a fire burning deep inside of me
That cannot be put out
I've lived and learned from mistakes I made
And I know one day you'll see
That the fucked up one ain't me
It is done, It's meant to be
[Never meant to be]

I need to know, what's the fuel that drives me away
While I just pass it by, it all
Memories to drive you insane
Across from the place of disposable memoirs
Of the image they stick in our brains

And I know one day you'll see
That the fucked up one ain't me
It is done, it's meant to be
While we're lost at sea
Track Name: Fecal Mist
Down at the factory
They got a plan you see
To deal with all the shit and piss
But in the nearby town
The sky is turning brown
It's raining down a fecal mist

Fecal Mist
The sky is turning brown
Fecal Mist

[solo]

You're not safe in this city
Things tend to get real shitty
When it comes down to fecal mist

Fecal Mist
The sky is turning brown
Fecal Mist
Coming to your town!
Fecal Mist
Track Name: Never Settle
I'm not going to settle
It keeps me up at night
I toss and turn again and again
The nightmare doesn't seem to end
She walks through the shadows
Of mistakes she's passed
She'll go back to fix it from time to time
But time keeps passing by

Your hands are fragile
Keep drifting away
They say the answer will come
But we know we have to wait
Time is not my friend
This lingering won't end
It keep me settled but
Fuck, I won't settle again
[Settle again]

You thought I was broken
You tried to fix me
But let me remind you
When nothing is broken there's nothing to fix
As I make my anthem
I walk these broken paths
Go down the road
Walk through it all and do it again

Your hands are fragile
Keep drifting away
They say the answer will come
But we know we have to wait
Time is not my friend
This lingering won't end
It keep me settled but
Fuck, I won't settle again
[Settle again]

Settle, won't settle, won't settle again
You settle, you settle, you settle again
Won't settle, won't settle, won't settle again
You settle, you settle, you're settling
