Track Name: Return to Nothing
Remove my reputation,
take away all my possessions,
cut out my struggle with circumstance,
what's left but a miserable corpse.

From flesh to dust.
From steel to rust.
Existence erased,
no time, no space.

Return to Nothing.
Track Name: Genesis
Where to begin:
Original Sin,
a gift from God.
The world of man, eternally damned,
chained to our fate.

The blood of the world, in the grip of the devil

I've got to escape
chained to my fate,
but I'll rise above.
I won't accept this gift that I've kept,
I won't believe.

No hold on my soul.
Track Name: The Grinding Halt
We understand our past mistakes
We understand the moves we make
but our inert fucking nature will be the death of us all

No need for renewal or progress
we'd rather just stand still.
Watching and wading through time
and never realize the cycle.

We must escape from suffering.
