.5: the Gray Chapter Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. XIX (3:10)
(This song is not for the living
This song is for the dead)

With my face against the floor
I can't see who knocked me out of the way
I don't want to get back up
But I have to, so it might as well be today

Nothing appeals to me,
No one feels like me
I'm too busy being calm to disappear

I'm no shape to be alone
Contrary to the shit that you might hear

So walk with me
Walk with me
Don't let this symbolism kill your heart

Walk with me
Walk with me
Just like we should've done right from the start

Walk with me
Walk with me
Don't let this fucking world tear you apart
2. Sarcastrophe (5:06)
Wallow in the winter of it.
Discover what you truly covet.
Underneath and far above it
You slither in all kinds of shit.

How could you forget about it?
Did you think you could minimize?
This is the age of consent
You’ll get a day in the sun before I kill your fucking lights

Burn up in your atmosphere
Burn up in your utmost fear

Desecrate your temples
Only Hell and Hate remain
Don’t look for crows to scatter
Prepare for Judgment Day

WE. ARE. KILL. GODS!

The Kings are falling down
Can I find a way to get there?
Bury your head in the ground
Will you falsify for your fair share?
When it’s done, it’s done – Plus negative one
It’s everybody’s guess but the apathy won
Will you come testify in the court of myopic opinion?
Or will you settle for oblivion?
WE. ARE. KILL. GODS!
WE – We make this world worth saving.
ARE – Are you prepared to believe?
KILL – Kill everything that kills you.
GODS – Live long and die for me.

Rape crutch and sick in the middle of an evidence bag that’ll never obey
All these years spent hiding all the bodies
I can never be sure but I remember….the…..graves!

WE. ARE. KILL. GODS!
WE – We make this world worth saving.
ARE – Are you prepared to believe?
KILL – Kill everything that kills you.
GODS – Live long and die for me.

LIVE LONG AND DIE FOR ME
LIVE LONG AND DIE FOR ME…
3. AOV (5:32)
Black. Dirty teeth. In the crease.
Was the proof too good to be believed?
It’s the cunt. With the tongue.
Who belongs on broken knees.
So far, it occurs to me that everybody in the world is afraid of me
Just one more sin and down we go. But the news is out, and I think I’m going to
Kill myself. Fuck myself. Or tell myself. About the only thing that matters now.

We bury what we fear the most
Approaching original violence
Is the silence where you hide it?
‘Cause I don’t recognize you anymore.
To each his own
Life can do with one less watered-down excuse
If this is over, you can tell me it’s no use.
USE – JUST TELL ME IT’S OVER

Today, we will deceive our better selves
Into assimilating pain from something else
Put on your face and show why
Behind the scenes we had to simply comply
Now, the community doesn’t feel any better than it used to be
I want to be a judge in a criminal case – you covered up, did you cultivate?
Be yourself. Not yourself. Know yourself. ‘Cause no one seems to know you now.

We carry what we can’t control
Approaching original violence
In the silence, there’s a nihilist
Who doesn’t care, and never did.
To each his own
Life can do with one less watered-down excuse
There comes a time when we can’t take the same abuse
If this is over, you can tell me it’s no use
USE

Drug out, pissed on, everything’s the same
Bitch and moan, it doesn’t matter, nothing’s going to change
I don’t want to watch another brother fucking die - so discarded, fallen by the side
Don’t tell me it’s the only way – just another reason why you never take the bait
The trials, the scheming, the burden of the beast
Both your faces turn your back on everything you fought to save a dream
Now that it’s over… when this is over…

We are the angels’ fear to tread
Approaching original violence
We’re the silence. We’ll deny it. We can’t continue on like this.
To each his own
Life can do with one less watered-down excuse
There comes a time when we can’t take the same abuse.
My God, it would’ve taken just one word to stay from you.
Now that this is over, you can tell me it’s no use…
Now that this is over, you can tell me it’s no use…
USE – JUST TELL ME IT’S OVER
It doesn’t matter what you say. It doesn’t matter what you do.
We can’t continue on like this.
4. The Devil in I (5:42)
Undo these chains, my friend. I’ll show you the rage I’ve hidden.
Perish the Sacrament. Swallow, but nothing’s forgiven.
You and I can’t decide which of us was taken for granted.
Make amends… some of us are destined to be outlived.

Step inside/ See The Devil In I
Too many times, we’ve let it come to this
Step inside/ See The Devil In I
You’ll realize I’m not your Devil anymore

Under the words of men, something is tempting the father.
Where is your will, my friend? Insatiates never even bother.
You and I, wrong or right, traded a lie for the leverage.
In between the lens in light, you’re not what you seem.

Step inside/ See The Devil In I
Too many times, we’ve let it come to this
Step inside/ See The Devil In I
You’ll realize I’m not your Devil…
I’m Not Your Devil Anymore

Your Station- Is Abandoned- Fool You ‘cause I know what you’ve done
Sensation- Deprivation- You should’ve burned when you turned on everyone

So Step inside/ See The Devil In I
Too many times, we’ve let it come to this
Step inside/ See The Devil In I
Oh, when all that’s left does not make sense
Step inside/ See The Devil In I
I know you’ll find your answers in the end
Step inside/ See The Devil In I
You’ll realize I’m not your Devil… anymore

So Step inside/ See The Devil In I
See The Devil In I
See The Devil In I
5. Killpop (3:45)
She’s sticking needles in her skin
I turn with an ugly grin
Her canvas doesn’t leave a lot, to fantasy
But her piece of mind can’t stay inside the lines
It’s so confusing, the methods that she’s using
She knows she shouldn’t leave a mark that I can see
Will she ever find one million of kind?
It’s cold and lonely, but that’s because she told me
Lost inside her dirty world, no one hurts this pretty girl but her

Oh, she’s beautiful
A little better than a man deserves
Oh, I’m not insane
Please tell me she won’t change…

MAYBE I SHOULD LET HER GO…BUT ONLY WHEN SHE LOVES ME
HOW CAN I JUST LET HER GO? NOT UNTIL SHE LOVES ME

She’s drowning in herself again. My God, what a lovely sin…
I guess there’s nothing left to do, but have my way
She can feel it’s right so she doesn’t close her eyes
She smiles and answers – it doesn’t seem to matter.
Lost inside my dirty head, something tells me I’m the one who’s kept.

Oh, so volatile
A little better than a man defiled.
Oh, I need the pain
Please tell me she won’t change…

MAYBE I SHOULD LET HER GO…BUT ONLY WHEN SHE LOVES ME
HOW CAN I JUST LET HER GO? NOT UNTIL SHE LOVES ME

We were meant to be together. Now die and fucking love me.
We were meant to hurt each other. Now die and fucking love me.
Die and fucking love me…
Die and fucking love me…
Die and fucking love me…
6. SkeptiC (4:46)
Only when the fates – Commiserate - Do we get a little taste as unique
The Libertine – Know what I mean? Hiroshima on a Sunday
You had a gift – You were a gift – But there’s always a goddamn catch
Blessing and a curse – You made it work – The Universe seems so much smaller
(Legend) Bastard (Best Friend) Why? Why do the limits have to realign?
(Hero) Martyr (Mystery) God – He was the best of us

The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
The world will never know another man as amazing as you

Never be the same – I want the blame – To be assigned to the guiltiest one
It can’t be done – Because the son – Was the victim they arrested
I’m so fuckin’ pissed – At all of this – You got to know that you are sorely missed
Miracles are real. They help you heal. They make you feel like things will get better.
(Father) Brother (Scapegoat) Why? Why did we only get this time?
(Fighter) Icon (Skeptic) God – Stop taking the best of us

I won’t let you disappear. I will keep your soul alive if I can’t have you here.
History may have its share of lunatics and stars…
But the world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
The world will never know another man as amazing as you
The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
The world will never know another man as amazing as you

SKEPTIC [6x]

Where am I supposed to begin? I’m killing for the karma again
Feed the meter in the machine – Believing it’s the way to be seen
GONE – Are we alone? GONE – Are we alone?
GONE – Are we alone? GONE – We’re not alone

I can’t let you disappear. I will keep your soul alive if I can’t have you here.
We were meant to be Kings.
Rule the masses, run the risks, and keep our systems clean
History may have its share of lunatics and stars…
But the world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
The world will never know another man as amazing as you
The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
The world will never know another man as amazing as you
The World – Will never see – Another crazy motherfucker like you
Like you! Like you! Like….You
7. Lech (4:50)
I know why Judas wept, motherfucker!

The fires burn on the summit, shining a light on the ones I’ve killed
Survivor’s guilt, undetermined – I could murder the world in all the blood I’ve spilled

Banishment – Sequestered and conquered
To hell with your intelligence – just figure out your common sense

No one is bulletproof

I’ll eat the skins of my brothers – the alabaster bones will make a perfect wall
Can I fill in the cracks of these feelings?
With every terrible piece or maybe nothing at all?

Selfishness – Take credit for everything
What more could you ask for?
And does it matter anymore?

No one is bulletproof

Can you feel the cold? Fortune never favors the old
Tired of defending myself – Go complain to somebody else….somebody else

The monsters in your madness are the voices in your head
They’re scratching at your windows as you hide beneath the bed
You live like fucking heathens so you’ll die like pagan gods
In between the poisons and the pure
Contagions and the cure
NINE – FOR – SURE

I got a bone that’s dead inside of me
It’s a rotting sick that I don’t need
Feel free to vent your denigration
I can’t believe I’m saying this
I’ll live with my regrets. I’ll die by my decisions.
I’m not your fucking superstar - Keep it close – you’re going way too far

NO ONE IS BULLETPROOF!
8. Goodbye (4:35)
Come on over…come unglued…
It’s not easy to see all of you
Help yourselves. Help is on the way
Well there’s nothing to lose so now I have something to say
Maybe we can all recognize a moment of silence
Maybe we can all finally agree on the same point of view
A long time ago we believed…and we were united
So the last thing on Earth I am ready to do is say…
Goodbye

A long time ago we discovered that nothing could stop us
This hasn’t torn us apart so nothing ever will
How can we know where we are if the sun is behind us?
But this moment will show us the rest of our lives
No one is going to save us this time
No one can know what we’re feeling…
So don’t’ even try
9. Nomadic (4:18)
Let’s skip all the histrionics – Not again, not another excuse
The epidemic is codependent – Biting off more than your mouth can chew
Don’t forget to convalesce your secrets – I don’t want to be a man today
For all you know, I’m the silver in the bullet
I am the trigger that will make you all obey
I’m going to make you cry tonight – I’m going to make you hate me

Inside all my flaws again (I can’t let go)
In spite of you, I’m lost again (I still don’t know)
Disguises show me – What am I if I am only?
The status-quo is not a punishment…but now it feels like home

Your association finds you guilty – Starting with end of the day
Black and white is such a fascist feeling – Right or wrong and nothing to say
The last good bipeds cleaning up the fingerprints – unappreciated medical fiends
Confiscate another classic inbred – Fuck it all – Light the acetylene
No other choice, I can’t explain – Life keeps taking things away
Inside all my flaws again (I can’t let go)
In spite of you, I’m lost again (I still don’t know)
Disguises show me – What am I if I am only?
The status-quo is not a punishment…but now it feels like home

The future’s here, I’m past my prime
When the evidence came, I committed the crime
Can you stand on your faith with your feet on the bible?
Who could ask for a better disciple?
What’s the point? I’m not sure I can
I’ll never dig another grave, I’m afraid of what I’ll find
If it hurts, then you’re too old. I’ll take your shit and give you fucking gold
I’m going to make you cry tonight – I need you to hate me

Inside all my flaws again (I can’t let go)
In spite of you, I’m lost again (I still don’t know)
Disguises show me – What am I if I am only?
The status-quo is not a punishment…
But now it feels like home…
But now it feels like home…
10. The One That Kills the Least (4:11)
I don’t seem to care today. I mirror what I love with what I hate.
Empty ways can cloud your eyes. I only know because I tried.
So come with me…come with me…
Let’s meet our contestants! There’s no better time to play the game!
I don’t want to give it away! Underneath the citadels
Buried deep with your guilt and regrets
Leading in the dark, everything is wonderful
I don’t care – I don’t want to forget
Why is it a crime? It’s none of your business
I prefer to be in hell by myself
Turn the other cheek and tell it to somebody who
Refuses to forgive, when nothing was taken

No one else survives – I’ve seen you live, now watch me die
But we don’t see the writing on the wall
And as I close my eyes – Alone in here, I realize
The one that kills the least still kills us all

Hidden in the rubble, everybody’s got a story to tell
What do I need? Eliminate the possible
All that’s left is a man in a cell
Maybe I’m wrong, maybe a decision is
The better way to go, the better way to be
I’ve got my demons – Go get your own
Save another number – Don’t forget to hate me

No one else survives – I’ve seen you live, now watch me die
But we don’t see the writing on the wall
And as I close my eyes – Alone in here, I realize
The one that kills the least still kills us all

No one else survives – I’ve seen you live, now watch me die
But we don’t see the writing on the wall
And as I close my eyes – Alone in here, I realize
The one that kills the least still kills us all
The one that kills the least still kills us all
The one that kills the least still kills us ALL!
11. Custer (4:14)
RISE
Half alive and stark-raving free and maligned for
Encroaching on the purpose of this commercial-free interruption…
Due to the prolific nature of this statement, listener aggression is advised.

It’s strange; whenever I see a gun, I think about just how petty you are
And it blows my fucking mind – It blows my fucking mind
These days, I never seem to get enough.
I’m tired of this – I want to go home
Don’t waste my fucking time – Don’t waste my fucking time
Because anything exceptional gets crushed by common people
With jealousy and ignorance and all their common evils
This planet isn’t special – collections made of clay
I’m waiting for the punishment I know is on my way

Cut – Cut – Cut me up and Fuck – Fuck – Fuck me up
CUT – CUT – CUT ME UP AND FUCK – FUCK – FUCK ME UP!
Irreverence is my disease – It’s second hand but you know me
The son of a bitch is on his knees
The last man standing gets no pity!

Somewhere on a toilet wall, I read the words
‘You FORM A LINE to FORMALIZE the FORMER LIES’
And I finally saw the truth
Something so profound and it was sitting there, surrounded by
The garbage and the stains – another victim of the refuse
Now I’ve been saying this for years but you don’t comprehend it
I fight hell and I fight fear because I understand it
Androgyny and insults – You try so hard to be difficult
You want to win the war? Know what you’re fighting for!

Cut – Cut – Cut me up and Fuck – Fuck – Fuck me up
CUT – CUT – CUT ME UP AND FUCK – FUCK – FUCK ME UP!
Irreverence is my disease – It’s second hand but you know me
The son of a bitch is on his knees
The last man standing gets no pity!
With angel eyes and demon seeds – You’re missing what you really need
When all is said and done, you see
The last man standing gets no pity!

Cut – Cut – Cut me up and Fuck – Fuck – Fuck me up
CUT – CUT – CUT ME UP AND FUCK – FUCK – FUCK ME UP!
12. Be Prepared for Hell (1:57)
[Intro]
I can't get out or I'll die
Just let me be
I'll never be never

[Verse x2]
Be prepared for Hell
And I say oh well
Just tell me when I can
Open my eyes
And realize
I've died

[Outro]
Be prepared for Hell

[maniacal laughter]
13. The Negative One (5:25)
Fire and Caffeine- a lot of Nicotine- I’m going to burn so I better tell you everything
The Competition- The Superstition- Never mind ‘cause you’re never going to give in
It’s a Crisis, just how you like it- the same drama in a different disguise
I’m bound to walk with a target on my back- At least I’m ready for another attack
The Lord Of Lies/The Morning Star/You Had To Be Set Free
Opposing Sides/Your Choices Are/The Negative One and Me

Svengali- why are we the enemies? I never follow and I never make apologies
Your dementias are gonna getcha- because your walls can’t support each other
Settle for the Cynical- you’re so political
You’re getting ready ‘cause the first move is critical
Reciprocity- somebody’s listening- what did we learn from our time in captivity?
The Lord Of Lies/The Morning Star/You Had To Be Set Free
Opposing Sides/Your Choices Are/The Negative One and Me
The Negative One and me
I Hope You Live/To See The Day/When Your World Goes Up In Flames
And As You Die/You See My Face/You’re The Only One To Blame

The Prescient/The Nascent/The Quotient (THEY ALL WILL FALL)
The Cystic/Symbolic/Condition (SYSTEMIC)
Egregious/Replete With/These Lesions (CONTAMINATE)
Succumb To/The Selfish/Creation (YOUR FAILURE)

No Accountability- Divisibility- I point a finger but it’s always looking back at me
The Centipede’s pulling on the mechanism- Unearthing scars of the cataclysm
When the Innocent- Begin to circumvent- The color fades but the picture is vibrant
What do you believe? Does it matter now? Turn away- The killer is disavowed
The Lord Of Lies/The Morning Star/You Had To Be Set Free
Opposing Sides/Your Choices Are/The Negative One and Me
The Negative One and Me
I Hope You Live/To See The Day/When Your World Goes Up In Flames
And As You Die/You See My Face/You’re The Only One To Blame
The Lord Of Lies/The Morning Star/You Had To Be Set Free
Opposing Sides/Your Choices Are
The Negative One
The Negative One
The Negative One
The Negative One and Me
14. If Rain Is What You Want (6:20)
It’s been years since anyone could be a friend
It’s the fear the kills the feeling in the end
Can we face it? Can we shape it? Can we really die?
If rain is what you want…all you have to do is close your eyes
Just close your eyes…

I am watching resurrection start to crawl
Is there any chance in hell? Any chance at all?
Do we need it? Do we see it? Is it really there?
If rain is what you want…then take your seats, enjoy the fall
Enjoy the fall…

The only thing deeper than my last breath
The only thing darker than my last death
IS THE PANIC – THE STATIC – I’VE COME BACK FROM THE DEAD
BUT MY CITIES….WILL NEVER SLEEP AGAIN

In these diamonds, we’re left with colored glass
As pressure take its toll, we learn to last
But you can’t break my heart
As long as I can be myself, I’ll never fall apart
And you can’t take me in
If I’m not broken, break me down
So I will never feel alone again

The only thing deeper than my last breath
The only thing darker than my last death
IS THE PANIC – THE STATIC – I’VE COME BACK FROM THE DEAD
BUT MY CITIES….WILL NEVER SLEEP AGAIN
MY CITIES….WILL NEVER SLEEP AGAIN
MY CITIES….WILL NEVER SLEEP AGAIN
MY CITIES….WILL NEVER SLEEP AGAIN
MY CITIES….WILL NEVER SLEEP AGAIN
