Track Name: Famine
I've betrayed myself to a love

that can promise only torture

the sweet release of a comforting agony

that reminds me i can still feel at all

because i only know i'm alive

when i can still feel the pain



I hate myself so much

that i've given myself to this agony

impaled my heart on the whims of your affection

surrendered my soul to the fickle tides of your mood.



I deserve this punishment

this living damnation

from which only death can give release

I was lost from the beginning

my feeble denial

was no match for this inevitable retribution

my own spirit demands it

as pennance for my empty, abominable lust



You will never be mine

and i am condemned to this love, pure and true.

for as long as i live

you'll be a siren, always beyond reach

driving me forever deeper into the rocks of despair, and loneliness

my never ending hunger

for that one sweet kiss

will tear away at my being

until there is nothing left of me

but famine.
Track Name: Dark Moth
Fly

take my tortured spirit with you

into the clear black waters of the night

& its endless hours of sweet emptiness

Lend me your dark dusty wings

that I can soar

far above this pathetic wretched world

into the roiling black clouds

far above them

let their tiny weak minds despise us
though you and i were born of their own pollution
leave them to their reeking bile and stupidity
we will only bother to look down on them long enough to hurl bolts of lightning to suit our fancy
for amusement
hide me in your evening shroud
keep me safe from the terrible light

i want to be safe from my emotions

i want to be empty like the night

i want to rise above my pain into the sweet bliss of apathy

i want to rise on dark wings into the roiling black clouds above and hurl lightning bolts at the weak small minds below

I want to be free of these emotions
to be the cold frost that consumes me

i want you to love me
and i can't have it
so my heart only causes me pain
rip it out and i will never feel again
steal my hot tears and replace them with ice
give me wings of darkness
take my pain and let me be numb to the world
give me apathy

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Dark moth
fly on wings of ebony
take my tortured spirit into the night

let me live without feeling
without hope or despair
free of short lived pleasures
amidst this endless pain

every dream destroyed
all my dreams destroyed
let me feast in apathy upon their corpses

all my dreams have died
so let me feast in heartless apathy upon their rotting corpses
xxxxxxxxxx

Dark Moth
take my spirit
lend me your black
dusty wings
that i can soar with you
through the rolling black clouds
and past the chaotic storm of emotions
into the void
beyond grief
beyond guilt and love

bathe my tortured spirit
in the dark empty waters of the night
far above this wretched world
and the small weak minds that despise us
though you and i were born of their pollution
let us rise above the stench
of their bright, vomiting stupidity

hide me in the dusty shroud of your tattered black wings
keep me safe from the burning torment of these emotions
let me dwell in emptiness
without feeling
without hope or despair
free of short lived pleasures
that only punctuate
the inevitable,
endless pain

Love is only torture
so rip out my heart
and replace it with stone
that i will never feel again
steal my hot tears
and replace them with ice
give me your wings of darkness
to fly away from this agony
take my pain and make me numb
I want to be free of these chains of compassion
I want to be empty like the starless night
all my dreams have died
so let me feast in apathy
on their corpses
let the night
devour my soul
