Track Name: Heavenspeak
I've withdrawn from everything and everyone
In my own head, all is silent
I've cut ties with all the light inside my heart
But her voice says it ain't so bad

Every word I ever learned ain't worth the hurt
They speak to me with sharpened tongues that cut me deep
And as I sleep, she's been lighting candles at my feet

I am broken like the silence that once surrounded me
Dampened by the weather and the blood between my sheets
And as I sleep, she's been lighting the darkness within me
But I killed every saint that lived inside of me

I've withdrawn from everything and everyone
In my own head, all is silent
I've cut ties with all the light inside my heart
But your voice says it ain't so bad
It's all in my head

Another tunnel way into brighter things
Say your grace to me
(Heavenspeak)
Light fades from me
The dark world kissed me

Another whore to wash my dirty feet
You're a saint to me
(Heavenspeak)
Light fades from me
The dark world kissed me
Track Name: The Violence Inside Me
I've been taking two a day
Headache after headache
I've been thinking of ways to save myself from what inhabits me
All the anxiety, all the weight I keep chained to me
I just need something to blame

Is it this goddamn city?
Is it my apartment?
Is it the people I see?
Is it me?

I'm more than skin and bone
Though I'm not sure
I think there's violence inside me
You can't be beautiful
When your spirit is ugly
I think there's violence inside me

I'm constantly thinking why,
Am I so goddamn angry?
Is it the way I've been living?
Is it the people I see?
Is it me?

I'm more than skin and bone
Though I'm not sure
I think there's violence inside me
You can't be beautiful
When your spirit is ugly
I think there's violence inside me

Oh, there's something inside me
Track Name: Dirty God
I woke up bare in a bed soaked through with sweat
I washed my hands and the water turned black
I heard your prayer and I walked out through the gates
Solemnly swear in one name
The pride of your faith

I cut my skin and I poured out all your fear
You wondered why I couldn't feel it
The blade was dull so I pushed it further in
Blood of a man whose fate ain't worth the care to save
The pride of your faith

Bring me all your cuts and your bruises
So I can lay my hands upon them
Bring me all your women and children
So I can send them straight to heaven
If you could touch your god you would strangle it
The pride of your faith

Show me all your woes and your worries
So I can give you all the answers
Show me all your skin and your organs
So I can bite out all the cancer
If you could just see yourself reflected in me
You wouldn't feel safe

Bring me all your cuts and your bruises
So I can lay my hands upon them
Bring me all your women and children
So I can send them straight to heaven
If you could touch your god you would strangle it
The pride of your faith
