Track Name: Glutton
Squatting on the ruined carcass / Throat slick with clotted gore
Rip and tear, chew and swallow / Bending down to reach for more

Glutton, you!

Stomach swollen, belly bursting / Veins crawl under glassy skin
Never finding satisfaction / Pressure's building up within

Glutton, you!

The jaws stretched wider, the lips pulled back
The eyes glazed over, the teeth turned black
In bed lie rotting, all impure flesh
And leaning over he starts to retch
One spasm ended and still craves more
He'll never
Track Name: Expat
To live among them, in the cloud of buzzing flies / Turning, turning, turning
To watch their sick dances / The intricate mess, all the squealing glee
Clustered like barnacles near the hot vents / Sucking at the salts, sucking at the liquors, sucking
Standing in the ragged circle, among the chuckling beggars / Laughing oh so smug, smug

I am of them

I look for my vestments / And find only these stinking rags
Serpent among serpents / Lost in the endless coilings of the sweaty den
Hidden in the nest, soaked in secret juice / The moth changes back
A maggot again like he likes / Emerges into the light blinking and spitting, blinking and spitting, blinking and spitting

I am of them

Drifting / Hollow
Track Name: Weakling
His strength gone, it's wasted
Now buried in the swamp of his bed
Lies gasping, the indolent wretch
His mind fixed on that open sore

It's vanity / Has led you here
It's vanity / Your mind's so clear
It's vanity / No-one else to blame
It's vanity / Struggle in your chains

The blood and bile that chokes you
Your nervous smile, my little eel

He's begging now to give in
The thin limbs twist in soaking rags
He'll weep, he'll gnash at hidden foes
And all in vain: you did this to yourself
 
It's vanity / Has led you here
It's vanity / Your mind's so clear
It's vanity / No-one else to blame
It's vanity / Struggle in your chains

The blood and bile that chokes you
Your nervous smile, my little eel

You've trapped yourself / No choices
Track Name: New Skin
My wretched body, the rattling husk
All scorched and dried out, still leaking pus

Just
I need, I need / Just a little hint
Won't you give me something / I'm gonna lose my mind

Well here's your answer, rolling in the dirt
Crawling in the mud with a mouth full of earth

Just
The vulgar pleasures / Teeth grinding sand
I'm a wriggling mole / I've got it in my hand

Face Down 
On the Ground
Dig In
New Skin
Track Name: Cannibal
Cannibal - stroll around so easy
Cannibal - roll around so pleased
Cannibal - with a conscience that's clean
Cannibal - but they feel it so deeply!

Clear-eyed and pure-blooded / They're feeding
Now they're giving a second glance / They're feeding
It's an honor to be chosen / They're feeding
You know none of you stand a chance / They'll suck you dry

Cannibal – so easy
Track Name: Rootless Cosmopolite
I'm moving, I'm moving slower
Drank down and got thick and syrup flowing
I'm moving, I'm moving slower
Hold fast, heavy clay

Not too hot, not too cold, just right
Tripped lying face-down and sprawled in the mud
Not too hot, not too cold, just right
Sink in feel the buzz

You can kick me around, I'm light as a feather
You can tug me around, I'm empty
You can do what you want, I got no objections
Don't you know I'm easy

Well known I'm half a man / Well known I'm half a hog
Sleek slick and shiny I'm all rubber

I just need, I just need one push
Slip slipping away

I'm rolling, I'm rolling downhill
Scratched soiled rusted soaking and senseless
I'm rolling, I'm rolling downhill
One more used up bottle

You can kick me around, I'm light as a feather
You can tug me around, I'm empty
You can do what you want, I got no objections
Don't you know I'm easy
Track Name: Sinecure
Here's a fire turned to lead
The old tough skin that cracked and bled
A lively tongue and clever hands
Leaping legs, the strength to stand
A shouting mouth to brag and boast
Blazing embers, furious smoke
And it's all gone numb

Carefree days have come at last!

I thought I knew what I wanted
I didn't know what I'd need
A whipping dog desperate for a master
A little man crying out for the heel

Easy living and a feather bed
Soft white pillows beneath my head
A life of leisure, nothing to do
Here among the privileged few
And it's all gone numb

I thought I knew what I wanted
I didn't know what I'd need
A whipping dog desperate for a master
A little man crying out for the heel
Track Name: The Coffee Drinkers
Sunshine's a crushing blow
And it's us the anvil

But now

Our pale friend our pale friend / Pale and comfortable he
Wants to get get out there / Out in the summer heat
From café to café / Bathed in a thin white buzz
The cool air's been blowing / And baby starts to fuss
It ain't no real summer / And he ain't had no fun
While we've been out working / Pressed under the sun's tongue

The crumbling rock
Passing out, the shock
Shirt white with salt
Ninety-Pound Jack

Dripping wet and clammy / Cold in the funeral pyre
Clumsy hands drop tools when / The boiling brain's so tired
He's pouting, he pines for / His time out in the light
I'll gladly give him his / His chance to
ASBESTOS
Track Name: 1910. 1025
For everything we'll give you
For anything at all
It's cracked open and ready
Get on your knees and crawl

The thick dust
White fibers
Pay no mind

A wet mouth
Means trouble
You're well trained
Breathe deeply

We need you here
Need your bones
You're certified

Now everything is ready
Everything will be fine
Put your hand in the wolf's mouth
Think of the overtime

The cold paste
White metal
Tread softly

A wet mouth
Means trouble

It's our gift to you
