Track Name: Dysthymia
Life, giant step
Pounding me down again
Don't pull me up
Not the surface
I'll only get the bends

Happiness makes me uneasy (I feel fine)
You make me feel sick
Normal bores me

Cling to the lows
Like a spider in the cracks
A familiar, a familiar sadness
Depressions got my back


Outro - I'm easy prey (repeat)
Track Name: Viva La Burn
People see that you burn
Friendships that become expensive
Emotionally, and things that bind
Things that try and tie you down
Time and time again
You demonstrate the very things you say you hate


Viva la burn, what a joy to watch you twist and turn
Viva la burn, nothing is saved, it all goes up in flames

Flying ants fill the air
Down on Western Avenue
You tell me you've got demons inside
But I don't think you've got a clue
All I can think of is
How you constantly talk utter sh*t
Track Name: E is for Existence
It's chaos, there's no one to blame
There is no real purpose despite your disdain
We suffer and suffer, but needlessly pray
Just help me to speed to my grave.


So nature's a plague and a whore
And there is no perfect stranger who'll knock at your door
And we're feebly equipped to make sense of this
So excuse me if I just turn away

They say well at least there's a cure
They say the world loves a fighter for sure
But that's not what I've found
It's time i was deep underground.

You wait for the sweet release of death
Uneasy as you failed doing your best
But there's no need for you to fear
The nothingness for billions of years
