Track Name: Curb Crawlin' 187
There've been a man, my dear friend,
listen to the fable, it's all true,
like my father, to heaven I'll ascend,
but unlike his my sins just grew.

One night I saw him,
he'd been standing on a freeway,
he axed if I'd let him in,
told me I'm going his way.

The future as dark as my past,
no magician could ever see,
had one chance in between two worlds,
and fire didn't walk with me.

That girl like a newborn lamb,
unaware of a soaring bird of prey,
oh, little did she know what gruesome scam
her undone lovers foul play.

I am merely a blameless victim,
for my crimes I am sicken.
Ain't on purpose, ain't by will,
if in thought born, ain't no kill.

The future as dark as my past,
no magician could ever see,
had one chance in between two worlds,
and fire didn't walk with me.

Oh Lord please, forgive me,
he raised a hand on his sister.
Am as equally at fault as he,
'cause I did nothing to stop his sinister.

The future as dark as my past,
no magician could ever see,
had one chance in between two worlds,
and fire didn't walk with me.
Track Name: Little Bastards
My ma was a whore
been dead for a week,
she's lost in a swamp
or burried two meters deep.

My pa was her pimp,
he stabbed her through and through,
in a jealous rage,
that fucked up little imp.

Say, say, say my child, be still,
yo ma ain't never gonna leave ya, even if ya will.
Say, say, say my child, be still,
yo ma ain't never gonna leave you, even if ya will.

My ma was a whore,
been dead for a week,
no money and no choice,
an underdog's little joy.

My brother was a junk,
no meaning to his life,
he said „fuck you all“,
disappeared out of sight.

Say, say, say my sis, be still,
it's OK to wish your death, or cry if ya will.
Say, say, say my sis, be still,
it's OK to wish your death, or die if ya will.

My ma was whore,
been dead for a week,
she died thought more
of her infants dying streak.

My ma was a whore,
had a stillborn, she was young.
Her son, my only friend,
all alone in his amend.

Say, say, say my child, be still,
yo ma ain't never gonna leave you, even if ya will.
Say, say, say my child, be still,
yo ma ain't never gonna leave you, even if ya will.
Track Name: Crystal Empires
You've seen him around,
rambling, head down to the ground,
smelly in dirty old rags,
old as hell.

Folks say he was a sinner,
lived a scanty, sad life,
all life a loser,
wanted to be a winner.

Hail---
his name,
and then run and run and run and run and hide.
They---
played his game,
and left none which ain't abide.

His path led to evil,
to his empire made of ice,
done unholy deeds,
on his soul he set a price.

So he prayed to the preacher,
heart broken, begged for forgiveness,
and it meant nothing,
the richeness for sickness and sadness and loneliness.


Hail---
his name,
and then run and run and run and hide.
They---
played his game,
and left none which ain't abide.

He'd pray
„Oh life, please come my way.“
and then run and run and run and hide.

They---
played his game,
and left none which ain't abide.
Track Name: Blue Silk Ballad
I saw myself die, oh Lord,
through the eyes of the man I loved.
What was left of my body was a heart
ripped from my chest.

My lips were a blood mess,
teeth stretched to a smile on the floor.
Was devouring looks,
which we used as silent words.

His body next to mine, on his knees begging please,
for my ripped flesh, as I have any left to give.

As I sat sadly by his side
came a wonderous thought,
bathed me in its purity,
wrapped around like Blue Silk.

Why should I be hiding,
dwellin' in confinement?
Let myself be free again,
annihilate this nightmare.

Hush, my pretty baby, I'll make everything alright,
they won't hunt or judge you, I'm never gonna be your corpse to bear.

Fast asleep was he,
dreaming vividly.
Overdue his brutality,
caught him before he did me.

Silvery flash at his throat,
caughing and panicking,
entering him fearlessly,
eviscerate my enemy.

Blood mess on my white sheets,
crazed look don't ya give me.
As you lay there peacefully,
remember it's better you than me.
Track Name: Please, I Insest
His love's a water,
that bond a whim,
he's not within.

I've torn them up,
those letters sent,
to them men.

You're my only blood,
could not forsake,
we're awake.

I'll hold your hand,
'cause you're my man,
by God's plan.

Yet, he who doesn't love his brother,
cannot love God.
Oh, but you're my brother,
and love mustn't be that odd.

Those games we play,
when you look my way,
I feel ashamed.

Am I Lilith's daughter,
in your command,
every time you demand.

And this was a lovely fight,
how you took my might,
I'm always yours.

And by Abrams choice,
you can lie to the vicious,
I'm no thy mistress.

He who doesn't love his brother,
cannot love God.
Oh but you're my brother,
and I cannot love you.

And I would do you as you would do me.
And I would do you as you would do to me.


Oh but you're my brother,
and I cannot love you.
