Alex Dee Its absolutely crazy! Seriously. Like a mixture between Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza and The Dillinger Escape Plan. Punk DIY ethos mixed with modern technicality and musicianship. Favorite track: Abandon.

Track Name: Everything That's Wrong With The World
I am sleeping.
Track Name: Swine
Bait

I wanted better from you
Can’t we just get along can’t we all just get along?
Paint our faces red.
We’ll grind our teeth and bleed together we’ll hunt and all be freed

We’re family

Nothing will hold us down, the world cant hold us down
Sacrifice is what we need we’ll slaughter all we see
Things aren't looking so great you said to all your friends
We're marooned here all to our selves with time to clean our heads
Track Name: Good Grief
I wake with wires around my neck
And when I dream I swear I see entire cities

I give my hands to you I renounce the throne
I am not what you need but you can’t imagine how I feel

I have numbed my self to the world I’m in

Wait.

When you feel like I’ve been feeling
You can’t imagine that this pain is even real
I want to peel back all the layers of the sky
I want to feed on others pain and pull you in

Cursed drowned ruined damned

I’ve made a mistake I’ve had this all wrong I’m innocent
I am not what you need

I can’t even stand I’m sick to my bones this is it
I am not what you need

I’m sick I’m sick I don’t need your help
I am not what you need

I give my hands to you
I renounce the throne
I am not what you need but you can’t imagine how I feel

But I know how to purge your sings

Ill wait
Track Name: Carnage
Fall out rains down and we end

With the power of gods in the hands of children
We’re walking embarrassments we’re the children of blasphemy

We’ve all gone cold.

Don’t forget who you really are we’re a race above the rest
We’ll be choking with our sinners bruised beaten and black and burdened

Blasphemy.

With the power of gods in the hands of children
We’re walking embarrassments we’re the children of blasphemy

Fall out rains down
Track Name: Collection Plate
Branded waiting to sin
You’ve been told what to believe

Rise up confirmed
Arches and towers what we’ve built on
Open your hearts open your wallets
Molest your children these are our fathers

What if all your beliefs broke down in front of you?
What would you believe in?
What would you have faith in?
Molded and shaped let go believe

Rise up.

You’ve been told what to believe

I’m still searching for a higher being
Take walk a with me and see what we see
Maybe the seas will part we’ll taste the water wine

You chose what you believe in
You choose what we believe in
Molded and shape let go believe

What if all your beliefs broke down in front of you?
What would you believe in?

Open your hearts
Open your wallets
Molest your children
These are our fathers

Rise Up.
Track Name: Fiend
I don’t feel right couldn’t you tell?
When we do this time slows down

I want out.

We can’t escape at all we cant escape at all

I don’t want to ruin your mind
But I see the future I swear I think I do

I think I’ve been awake for too long
I haven’t eaten or slept where are you?

Please just shut this off turn it off

I see future and I’m obligated to say
We measure up to nothing then we rot away

I’d save your breath we don’t go on
We’ll leave no mark and you’ll have no say

Come on and save us all
Track Name: Mescaline
There are times even being right feels wrong

If you’re crazy it’s time you get paid for it you’ll be locked

Buy the ticket take a ride

I hate to advocate drugs sex and alcohol
Violence or insanity but it’s always worked for me

I have a theory that the truth is never told during the nine-to-five

One more time for you fuckers up top
I’ll make it clear who’s the one on top
The world ends today and here’s a salute to you

I hate to advocate drugs sex and alcohol
Violence or insanity but it’s always worked for me
Track Name: Dream Eater
Fucking close your eyes and hope this ends

Girl you might not know this but it’s true that I stay awake

Awake when you sleep
Awake when you dream

I can see into your dreams

I’m here to save you from your dreams and I’ll be your king I’ll swallow them whole I’ll swallow them whole

So open wide

I pulled my teeth out girl just for you
I am your king.Nightmares are no match for me do you know who I am?

Eat dreams
Cure heal

I’ll set you free.
Track Name: Encores
I’ve been counting sins.

We walked it off walked it off we don’t feel a thing
We walked it off walked it off we don’t feel a thing

Believe it.

You can kill time because I don’t event want it
You should kill time because we don’t even need it
I want to feel alive tonight just like all of you around me

Hell won’t change it won’t change for you
Hell won’t change it didn’t change for me it won’t change for you

Change for me not for any of you now

Don’t tell me you even know us
You made a choice and now you live with it
You pointed to the road and now we’ve gone and ruined it

I’ve lost the time.

Well it looks like you’ve lost the time
But it seems I’ve found it fine
And we’ll be waiting here tonight
We’ll be waiting here tonight

Live

Take it back to where it all began

Hell wont change but we’re not really “here” at all

We won’t we won’t ever change
Track Name: Burdens
Worthless.

I’m here locked up wasting away turned up face down Rout. This is a list of people I know secrets I hold.
I can change your life

Held my tongue far too long now I’m done Creep.

Wrap this thought around my mind burns my eyes

Creep.

I can barely look you in your eyes I know about your past
I could ruin everything but I’ll hold it all inside
I hope it eats you away
I hope you can’t sleep at night
Never forget the filth you are. make me sick

You’re filth.

I wish things could be different but I can’t be your saviour
You deserve so much better I’m sorry but I’ll never tell
I’ve seen you change I’ve watched you shape I cant watch
It feels like weight on my shoulders

Maybe you know this stone burden.
Track Name: Abandon
Call out the leader and bring him back
He’s abandoned us left us and now the sun is turning black

We’re fucked hot shot we’ve all starved to death we’ve got a lot to learnSpeak up fake friend what did you say?

Well say it to my face

How’s it feel to be on top of the world?

I promise I’ll be great and you’ll be proud
While your head up the clouds know what we felt?
Don’t bother to get up because we’re in hell
We bore down clinched our teeth and took a vow

You left us here and we turned to rot and we’ve stood strong You can’t believe what you can do when you have nothing left If I ever seen you again I’ll drive this knife right through your chest The blood will pour and we’ll all rejoice

You betrayed us all.

Who do you think you are?

Fight back fight back.
If you’re the animal you say you are then you'll
Fight back fight back let the pack take control of you
Fight back fight back and together we’ll drown those who hold us back

You betrayed us all.
