Track Name: Thin The Herd
Hordes of scum force feed the frail
Do as you're told or rot in hell
Heinous crimes commited every fucking day
In the name of their father and his slaves

Hanging them from the trees for what they don't heed
Freethinkers, nonbelievers, and everyone in between
You must repent for your sins they say
You will feel god's wrath if you don't obey

Control in an ancient form
Growing is the victims' scorn
Rid the oppressors
Thin the herd
Track Name: Cold And Lost
The moonlight guides me, like an old wise friend
Lighting my way to a safe and pleasant end
But the night goes on and the snow falls harder
Burying all hope while the wind blows louder

I turn my back to shield myself from the cold
The footprints remind me that I'm all alone
My ears start burning and my lungs start aching
My feet are wet and my knees are shaking

Unable to proceed, I lose my footing
On my back, to the moon I'm looking
It's glow sinking behind the clouds and frost
I have no guide now, I'm cold and lost

"Old friend, don't leave me to die
I need you more than ever tonight.
The snow's falling thick and I can't see shit,
The path you set for me is no longer lit"

My plea's go unheard, it's just me and the earth
I'm blind to my surroundings and totally immersed
Track Name: Waking Up And Decomposing
I feel buried every morning by the weight of expectation
Looking to the world for the slightest motivation
I curse every mother fucker with a positive expression
Their smiles enrage me and fill me with aggression

Fits of anger and self loathing
Dying in my sleep, waking up, and decomposing
Track Name: Confined
I'm disgusted with
The people I see
They're undeserving of life
And a blight on humanity
But they're in control
And they hold the key
To the shackles I bare
Held down by society

Empty inside
I'm losing my mind
I've spent countless weeks
On a steady decline
I'm starting to think that
I'm running out of time
To find peace in this life
To which I am confined
