CONTRA: LYRICS for Deny Everything

  1. Human Buzzsaw (3:24) | Lyrics

    You know the craving will not subside anytime soon
    I starve then turn on myself and from the inside begin to consume

    Seven days and seven nights, deny everything

    I place my hands upon the door, brace myself and dig my heels in
    It’s not about who I am, you know it’s all about what I am not

    I’ve noticed that disappointment makes a most effective prop
    For every silent scene where the lighting is adjusted
    So you know the effect is profound, it’s all there in black and white

  2. Snake Goat (4:07) | Lyrics

    A fitting end to promises
    Whispered words best left unsaid
    Out of sight, out of mind
    You know I’ll pay for what I’ve taken this time
    Simple truths rendered meaningless
    And everything will never be enough
    Standing in, waiting for my line
    I’m standing in on borrowed time

    The yield is nothing

    A fitting end to promises
    Whispered words best left unsaid
    You’re out of sight and out of mind
    You know I’ll pay for what I’ve taken this time

    The yield is nothing

    Simple truths rendered meaningless
    And everything will never be enough
    Standing in, waiting for my line
    I’m standing in on borrowed time

    The yield is nothing

    Cast a mold-modeled perfectly after a fashion or obsession
    Isn’t this what you’ve always wanted?
    Isn’t this what you need?

    The yield is nothing

  3. Altered Beast(3:19)
  4. The Gorgon (2:27) | Lyrics

    I’ve the emotional depth and range like the flat, atonal howling
    Of a man that’s been set ablaze – set afire by obsessions unchecked
    And in this lifetime I’ve made a career out of suicides
    I know the routines, they come and they go, and when they do you know I’ll play my part
    Yes, I’ll play my part

    The dates of days I’d rather forget keep coming back to me

    So I put on a brave face just to save, just to show a little tact
    And maybe, maybe some grace, but you know I’m disconnected

    Disconnected

  5. Humanoid Therapy (6:02) | Lyrics

    I’ve spent too much time hiding in the corners
    Living in the dark, hiding from the sun

    I’ve spent too much time hiding in the corners
    Living in the dark, consumed by my disease

    It’s the concessions that kill much quicker than you’d think
    I’d swallow all of my pride
    It’s a bitter pill – it’s snake oil
    None of this has made me a better man
    It’s the concessions that kill much quicker than you’d think

  6. Son of Beast (4:13) | Lyrics

    Draged out-left for dead out in the street. Stripped down-exposed and left for all to see.

    Like a dog that needs put down-nothing left, there’s no pity.

    Howling son, killing.

    Sweep this room of abhorrence, maybe then I’d sleep with Oneiros’ kiss and without fits-without seizure. Fits and seizure.

  7. Bottom Feeder (2:58) | Lyrics

    A clean slate and an empty page for you to bleed inside the lines this time
    Ask yourself- no, tell yourself that it’s a masterpiece

    A prodigious talent for next to nothing
    Where everything is lost in sleep
    In the waking hours do you shake like me?
    3 am won’t come so quickly

    Stare too long, I give away the ending
    In my eyes it’s next to nothing
    Caught in the lie that I tell myself
    This is my masterpiece

    A prodigious talent for next to nothing
    Where everything is lost in sleep
    In the waking hours do you shake like me?
    3 am won’t come so quickly

    A clean slate and an empty page where I can bleed inside the lines this time
    Caught in the lie that I tell myself
    and it’s a masterpiece

    Lost in sleep

  8. One Hundred Hand Slap (2:45)
  9. Dr. Goldfoot (4:54) | Lyrics

    An endless train of thought that circles this self-pity.
    It’s not desperation when you refuse to try.
    You’ll hear no cry for help.

    And the time crawls by for those who cannot see.
    If it moves much faster-it starts crumbling, it will crush me.
    I have to take my time-build every wall with care.
    If I move much faster-the façade is crumbling-it comes crashing down.

    All my days are wasted, and all my nights are sleepless.
    I thought that I’d outlive this all, because I can’t out run it.

    And the time crawls by for those who cannot see.
    If it moves much faster-it starts crumbling, it will crush me.
    I have to take my time-build every wall with care.
    If I move much faster-the façade is crumbling-it comes crashing down.

    And I’ll always question the need to go on.
    Without the will I know the answer, but part of me won’t let it go.
    I keep my heart bound to the hurt, but you’ll never hear me plead for forgiveness.

  10. Shrimp Cocktail (7:41) | Lyrics

    You know I’d sell my soul on a whim for one kind word
    Take myself right to the floor-it’s a slow burn when you’re coming down
    This is just a footnote for a feeling long since dead
    And I only have the words to romanticize, nothing to relive again
    Anything to alleviate the guilt
    But, I can’t fill the holes I’ve made so easily
    Cauterize the wound with one kind word and a feigned smile
    But I see you’ve bared your teeth.

    Drop down to the floor-I see you’ve bared your teeth

    Circles and cycles of self-loathing from which there is no escape
