Track Name: Mellified
Verse One
Can you smell it wafting oh so sweetly?
It's a little on the nose.
As it's tasted eyes begin the weeping.
May be sad but the old man chose.
Can you blame him, age can be a burden?
Bedridden for your golden years.
So he found a different way to serve them.
Take a little piece, forget your fears.

Chorus
Mellified
Man candy.

Verse Two
As we eat him you may feel revulsion.
It's just a symptom of your fragile state.
He gave himself for medical consumption.
Chew and swallow, clear your plate.
You can't even taste that he was human.
The waters have thickened to a tasty goo.
Just hope the powers have you curin'
Or maybe one day we'll be eating you.

Chorus
Mellified
Man candy.

Instrumental Break

Chorus
Mellified
Man candy.
I said mellified
Man candy.
I said mellified
Man candy.
Track Name: Ignorance
Verse One
I want to go back to the beginning,
when my skin was soft and my face was grinning.
It was so much simpler then,
before the truth broke through the lies.
I miss the painless thinking,
when I still believed that we weren't sinking and
It might seem dumb to say it now,
but I would rather be dumb than wise.

I can't close the door.

Verse Two
I wish the shades weren't broken and
that the words were still unspoken.
It's a little too late to block the sun,
nearly half-way up the sky.
Still I pray they're joking,
when they tell me that we'll soon be croaking.
If I can't keep hope just a little while,
then why should I even try.

and I can't close the door.

Verse Three
Should I go on forever?
'til I need to ask the questions whether
I was ever born, or was I always here,
or in the end will I have to die?
I'm still afraid of that ether
and I never really was a firm believer.
When we close our eyes for the very last time
I think it truly is goodbye.

I can't close the door.

I can't close the door.
Track Name: The Darkest Place
Chorus
Welcome to the darkest place.
Bit by bit it fades away.

Verse One
It's getting cold and the lights are low.
Growing dimmer by the moment.
I can't see anything.
Lost the feeling in my toes.
Now it's spreading down my fingers.
Like they're not there anymore.

Chorus
Welcome to the darkest place.
Bit by bit it fades away.
Welcome to the darkest place.
See the black wash out the grey.

Instrumental Break

Chorus
Welcome to the darkest place.
Bit by bit it fades away.
Welcome to the darkest place.
See the black wash out the grey.

Verse Two
As I float atop the water.
Numbness reaches for my face.
The choking, blinding, inky water.
Then the tide begins to rise up
and my body is reclaimed.
I'm sinking into nothing.
Track Name: Old Blue
Verse One
We've come full circle and I'm riding on the wind.
Needing some assistance to find a way in.
Try to push on but I'm caught up in the breeze.
It'll take a little effort to pull me from my knees.

Chorus
Old Blue.
Old Blue.

Verse Two
I've made it to the tunnel, got a compass in my head.
I push against the entrance but my muscles are dead.
I cannot shift this boulder, to take a peek inside.
Need some chemical assistance then I'll have another try.

Chorus
Old Blue.
Old Blue.

Instrumental Break

Chorus
Old Blue.

Chorus
Look to the left.
Look to the right.
Back to the left
and to the right.
Look to the left.
Look to the right
Back to the left
and to the right.

Verse One
To the left hyenas cackle for their dinner.
They want a bite of every fat passer.
To the right I see the wolves start to gather.
They'd all sell their mothers for a bigger...

Chorus
...bite.
Look to the right.
Back to the left
and to the right.
Look to the left.
Look to the right
Back to the left
and to the right.

Instrumental Break

Chorus
Look to the left.
Look to the right.
Back to the left

Look to the left.
Look to the right
Back to the left
and to the right.

Verse Two
I'm just a piggy in the middle
Don't need to settle no score.
I just want to eat my lunch, eat my lunch
Before my roll in the mud.

Chorus
Left.
Look to the right.
Back to the left
and to the right.
Look to the left.
Look to the right
Back to the left
and to the right.
