s l e e p r A stellar concoction of noise, rhythm, illegible screaming, and twisted lyrics. These guys should be opening up for Full of Hell with material like this. Favorite track: Paratrooper.

Track Name: As Weapons
All of this has already been written
If you put me in the wrong position
I'll them that you changed it
and punish the deviation

My shadow engulfs me
I am what I am
and it reminds me

Dirt under my fingernails
and burns on my legs
My stomach is surely made of glass
and not made to last

All of my evils
A raw nerve

Whatever is behind me
is before you

Condemned to heights
suffocating their lights

in hindsight
out of me
Track Name: Permanent Detachment

Grind stimulants
into my bones and
teeth after making

Irritate to imitate

Imagine the universe
Constituted by my hatred
Space and time running
backwards and beneath

Stuck at an in-between
Bitten nails and
Bloodshot eyes
Never express your suffering

Your sins are forgiven
Track Name: Paratrooper
All my lies
are alibis
and they all work out in the end

everything's a cause
until you reach your conclusions
the first bite is always the worst

Time runs backwards
Nonsense is produced

My bones scare me more than the concrete that shatters them
Am I here forever?
Because I've forgotten all of it

i look to the sun to guide me
for presumably, i am lost
but a glance upward snaps my bones

like a bouquet of roses
dead from too much water

obligatory religious pilgrimage
offer yourself to the archetype
give in
give up

staggering to the finish line
going down
down with no up
pure, total, complete, perfect

entering here, i have
realized that
never will i leave

i strung myself up by the throat between the trees at night
and hoisted myself to final mental victory
this is it
i've done it this time
this is it
and i am sure
there will be no more
Track Name: Motion Sickness
Grey paste

Emotions breeding anxiety

Still getting by

Not saying, but just saying

I'm just saying
binds me
to you?

Why do I
always think of it?

It can't ever
escape me
Track Name: The Old World is Not Far Behind You
I need the stuff
to make it real
and celebrate my own appeal
make a coffin for me
of tar and envy
float me down the river
like your savior like your savior like only your savior could

don't let your insides go bad
wave goodbye to all your friends
as they all will leave
wrap me in new linen
and put me to sleep

stay with me
until I can sleep
beside me
for I can't breathe
I grab for you
my only savior
arms made of syringes
just for me
You aren't the only one
My angel
It comes to me on broken wings
And it says to me
"They're here"
