Track Name: Punishment
Fall down to your knees
and beg, won't you ask him please
that you won't do it again
but you, you're gonna do it again
cause you can't keep it inside

punishment

now you're at the end
don't you wish that you were free
but you wanna do right
but you're gonna do wrong
and you're gonna disrespect
but you don't wanna disrespect
but you can't keep it inside

punishment
Track Name: Sin and Shame
I drank myself into the glass, and when I fell I saw you there. You filled me up to condescend, but I can't feel when I'm a man.

I don't have anything to say. All my feelings stolen away.

A child is born into the world, and slowly truth is locked away. They give them names - a girl, a boy. they'll lose their lives, but they'll enjoy.

They're made of sin and guilt and shame, and that's the way the world is made.

I don't have anything to say. all my feelings stolen away.

The holy building's made of sin. and all the guilt is locked within. if you take another step, you'll have to start all over again.

this is not your fault

we're not the things we think we must. look at the seams, they're bound to bust. for what is right and what is just? and who's without envy or lust?

this is not your fault
Track Name: God is Dead
God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it
Track Name: Hymn
he's thankful for the men, who have opinions like him
on sunday he repents for all of his sins
at home he tries to rest in silence alone
but nothing lets him get what he wants most

deep down inside his hungers they hide, but the love for god is too great

i'm a coward a child, i'm weak and i'm wild, i'm only a human man
when i walk in a room, the spirit consumes me and i am unable to speak
Track Name: Colony (Joy Division)
A cry for help, a hint of anesthesia,
The sound from broken homes,
We used to always meet here.
As he lays asleep, she takes him in her arms,
Some things I have to do, but I don't mean you harm.

A worried parent's glance, a kiss, a last goodbye,
Hands him the bag she packed, the tears she tries to hide,
A cruel wind that blows down to our lunacy
And leaves him standing cold here in this colony.

I can't see why all these confrontations,
I can't see why all these dislocations,
No family life, this makes me feel uneasy,
Stood alone here in this colony.
In this colony, in this colony, in this colony, in this colony.

Dear God in his wisdom took you by the hand,
God in his wisdom made you understand.
God in his wisdom took you by the hand,
God in his wisdom made you understand.

God in his wisdom took you by the hand,
God in his wisdom made you understand.
God in his wisdom took you by the hand,
God in his wisdom made you understand.
In this colony, in this colony, in this colony, in this colony.
Track Name: Machine Gun Heart
the silences i want to fill are nature's way of calling me, but i'm so stuck inside my head that i have stumbled several times over your name or noises elsewhere. how to let it pass right through me?

machine gun heart, mow me down

now the place is full of nothing, conversations uncontrollable urge to kill and leave this place, but i must die in smaller ways and let it ride and let it kill me just so i can be a human. am i crazy, or a baby? what is wrong with being stupid? how to let it pass right through me?

machine gun heart, mow me down

you'll survive if you will let it destroy your insides, don't regret it. everything won't be okay, but you will be just fine.
