  • 03:13 Story Lyrics Joy Thieves

    Shut your fucking mouth and keep your hands where I can see them

    Do exactly what I say and this will all be over soon

    If you value your life and the lives of those around you

    Put the money in the bag and we all just walk away

    But if you think that you’re a hero, let me offer this advice

    It’s hard to be a hero with a hole between your eyes

     

    Joy Thieves

    A hole between your eyes

    Joy Thieves

    No one has to die

     

    Stay face down on the ground

    Don’t make a fucking sound

    Stay face down on the ground

    Don’t make a fucking sound

     

    Ladies and gentlemen, in this unlikely scenario…I am the alpha male

     

    I’ll take everything you have

    Now just put it in the bag

    I am the alpha male

    I am the alpha male

     

     

     

     

  • 03:50 Story Lyrics This Will Kill That

    I try to maintain

    A victim of my own lucidity

    And when I try to stay sane

    All the madness just crawls right out of me

    When I throw on the light

    My body in relief, it’s clinical

    A corpse dying of fright

    The movement in the mirror is minimal

     

    Bet you never thought that this would kill that

    Bet you never thought, bet you never thought

    I never thought

    You’re trying to do what?

    Make this one kill that

    Trying to do what you were always scared of

     

    To focus is hard

    For lips that never move to communicate

    And I’m always on guard

    The object of the force to terminate

    It’s a throw away life

    My body and my thoughts just vaporize

    And I’m covered in bites

    By a madness that remains still weaponized

     

    A maze that’s mine

    A blade so fine

    Bet you never thought, bet you never, never, never thought.

     

     

  • 04:49 Story Lyrics Chemical Dreams

     

    Remember me

    I’ll always go on long after I’m gone

    Remember me

    As dark as a ghost who loved you the most

    I can bleed

    This dirty soul, hear me knock and never know

    I can bleed

    Out of control

    What you can see can leave you cold

     

    Flowing through the doubts when you smell a lie
    Damn, you're still alive
    These chemicals they never really dull the stain

    Just another needle pushing in vain

     

    Acid cowboy rides again

    He’s no one’s friend

    He speaks in riddles, tongues and rhymes

    A fucking crime

    I can bleed

    This dirty soul, hear me knock and never know

    I can bleed

    Out of control

    What you can see can leave you cold

     

    Deep in the plan, man

    Nothing making sense and

    Stranger in the stranger

    Ignore all the dangers

    Blame it on the wrong God

    Find the love is long gone

    Sleep in the chemical dream

    Sleep in the chemical dream

     

    Sweet dreams are made of fucking deeds

    Sweet screams are made of fucking deeds

     

    These chemicals they make a stain

    These chemicals they fill the vein

  • 04:04 Story Lyrics Tempting the Flames

     

    It takes you to a place deep down inside

    It’s the only place that you can run and hide

    To escape the only way left for you

    Getting fucked up on your smack will get you through

    So you run

     

    And every time it’s all the same

    Can’t be judged, you can’t be blamed

    But it’s you tempting the flames

     

    But you can not see the forest for the trees

    You’re thinking there’s nothing wrong with me

    It won’t happen, it won’t happen to me

    But it’s coming straight for you and it won’t slow down

    It will keep you under the waves until you drown

    Yeah, you drown

    So you run

     

    And every time you feel the pain

    The needle further into your vein

    You think it’s God, but it’s not

    And every time it’s all the same

    Can’t be judged, you can’t be blamed

    But it’s you tempting the flames

     

    The highs, the lows, the want, it grows

    All the time inside your mind

  • 02:52 Story Violent Lucidity
  • 04:12 Story Lyrics Honeycomb And Silk

    The buzzing in the tips of my fingers

    And the tickling in my tongue

    The streaks of lightning beneath my eyelids

    And vibrations in my lungs

    The swollen bumps that throb and pulsate

    And seep fluids down my face

    The woven threads that conceal the larva  

    That live only to debase 

     

    They let me know there will be no resting

    They let me know they will never cease

    They let me know that they’ve started nesting

    They let me know there will be no peace

     

    Earth is coming back for me

    Honeycomb and silk are all I see

    Earth is coming back through me

    What once was me is hollow

    I don’t belong to me

    I don’t belong to me

     

    Diseased worms wriggle from my fingers

    Squirming bumps beneath the skin

    All the sores chewed into my eyelids

    And the botflies held within

    They let me know that they’re now ingesting

    All the nutrients meant for me

    They let me know that they’re manifesting

    And taking over inside of me

     

    Earth is coming back for me

    Honeycomb and silk are all I see

    Earth is coming back through me

    What once was me is hollow

    I don’t belong to me

    I don’t belong to me
