Track Name: Death Rattle
Sanctified
Hollow trust
Pray forgiveness and
Drown in the flood

All of your senses fail
All of your functions stop
Feel as your eyes drip blood
Foreit your faith and hope
Swollen with bile you choke
Death Rattle in your throat

Sacrament
Ties that bind
Exploitation
Of body and mind
Cries of anguish
All pain converged
Watchful eye of Heaven
These sins are purged

All of your senses fail
All of your functions stop
Feel as your eyes drip blood
Foreit your faith and hope
Swollen with bile you choke
Death Rattle in your throat
All of your senses fail
All of your functions stop
Feel as your eyes drip blood
Foreit your faith and hope
Swollen with bile you choke
Death Rattle in your throat

Rattle
Death Rattle
Death Rattle
Death
Track Name: The Choking Heat
I've searched forever and I am blind
My nerves are shred; I've lost my mind
Without control there ain't a thing I can do
The valves, they turn, and I am plunged into...

Darkness
That brings the choking heat
Flames Render the silence
Awakening the hungry beast

I drag my shackles 'cross this blood-stained hall
I am a prisoner to my own freefall
There's no escape, there's no redemption; it's true
I await punishment so long overdue

Darkness
That brings the choking heat
Flames Render the silence
Awakening the hungry beast

The valves they turn and I am plunged into
The valves they turn and I am plunged into
Death

Contorting faces here
These twitching eyes and limbs
And brick by brick you're entombed by your sins
I'm not a weak man
I never was
But I am bound here through the curse of my blood
Track Name: Sawbones
Prepare for the funeral and I will leave a pound of flesh
Bend and break; your skin contorts; locked in the grip of death

Within these halcyon grounds
We saw the bones

Behold the walls of your holy tomb - strapped down with open eyes
And when we're done, to the old furnace that billows black smoke to the sky
Track Name: Ever Downwards
I can see no light
I know what's behind the walls
I am swallowed whole
In the end death comes for us all

Under a starless sky
They wait in darkness - blind
Drawing me ever downwards
Imprisoned in this feeble mind

I saw the Face of God in the mirror
I know it's blood that stains my hands
They are but bones all tied up in veins
How can I make you understand?
Track Name: Heaven's Gallery
Holy rain
Make me pure
Heaven, Dear
What would you know?

I can see the planets re-aligning
I can feel the wounds cauterizing

I can see it open
