MORTALES Austin, Texas

Some time back in 2016, Mortales spawned from an itchy and beer-soaked practice room floor in Austin, Texas. Since then, we have conducted our own experiments with creatures sewn together from various influences and aspects mined from our own individual psyches. ... more

Track Name: Warhead
You cannot kill what's already dead
Did I suffocate or is it all just in my head?
There's a snake lurking in my bed
I look for sleep but all I see is fucking red

When you get that feeling
Climb up to the ceiling
Till it all starts burning down
(Till it all starts burning down)
When you're sweating through your sheets
Cause there's a monster at your feet
It's all a fever dream
It's all a fever dream
(It's all a fever dream)

I'm burning up I'm a fucking warhead
I'll bomb this town and pray it stays undead
I'm a tightened noose and an albatross of lead
Try not to breathe until your eyes change to blood red

When you get that feeling
Climb up to the ceiling
Till it all starts burning down
(Till it all starts burning down)
When you're sweating through your sheets
Cause there's a monster at your feet
It's all a fever dream
It's all a fever dream
(It's all a fever dream)

When you get that feeling
Climb up to the ceiling
Till it all starts burning down
When you're sweating through your sheets
Cause there's a monster at your feet
It's all a fever dream
It's all a fever dream
It's all a fever dream
It's all a fever dream
Track Name: Hostility of a Bomb
Sometimes it's hard to swallow that pill
Pushing a boulder up the hill
When everyone's a monster
And every word a cancer
Building up my anger till
It's dwelling deep in my spine

Hostility of a bomb
Feel the kickback like a gun
And if you stand up you'll get crucified in your town hall
And if you don't you better watch out cause you're the criminal

Sometimes it's hard to swallow that pill
Pushing a boulder up the hill
When everyone's a monster
And every word a cancer
Building up my anger till
It's dwelling deep in my spine

Hostility of a bomb
Feel the kickback like a gun
And if you stand up you'll get crucified in your town hall
And if you don't you better watch out cause you're the criminal

You can't hide the devil in your eyes
You fought for hate and it's to no surprise
Cause I know that you've been lying
It takes a man to know his time has come
The truth will drop just like a nuclear bomb
Cause we know that you've been lying

Cause I know that you've been lying

Cause we know that you've been lying

Hostility of a bomb
Feel the kickback like a gun
And if you stand up you'll get crucified in your town hall
And if you don't you better watch out cause you're the criminal
Track Name: Psilocyborg
Eyes open but I can't see
Lungs growing but I can't breathe
Thoughts forming but I can't think
Lips swelling but I can't speak

I am Psilocyborg
Crawling through the sand
Sentient and breathing
I will become man

Violence is all I see
Hatred is all I breathe
Vengeance is all I seek
Poison is all I speak
Poison is all I speak

I am Psilocyborg
Crawling through the sand
Sentient and breathing
I have become man
I am Psilocyborg
Crawling through the sand
Sentient and breathing
I have become man
Track Name: Bring All Your Fire
You walk with the devil
His wind on your back
He spits in your face while you're hand-in-hand
You walk with the devil
A line in the sand
You're either with us or you die here a man

Yeaaaaaah bring all your fire
Yeah bring your crooks and liars
For too long I've been under your thumb
Now it's time to have a little fun
YeaaaaAAAAaaaah bring all your fire

You walk with the devil
His grin on your mind
He'll make you bow to his will over time
You walk with the devil
Though he treats you unkind
You beg for peace but he's got war on his mind

Heeeeeeyyy it's not as bad as you wanna say
We don't feel guilty in any way
Just wait till I put a gun to your head
Life is a bitch
Fuck all this shit
It's easy to quit
When you're all dead

Yeaaaaaah bring all your fire
Yeah bring your crooks and liars
For too long I've been under your thumb
Now it's time to have a little fun
YeaaaaAAAAaaaah bring all your fire
Track Name: Bricks
As time grows old
And the sun grows cold
We learned we made
A grave mistake

Tear down the walls
Bring 'em down
They'll feed us all
There's enough blood to go around
Tear down the walls
Bring 'em down
They'll feed us all
There's enough blood to go around

Blind with hate
Live to separate
Where have you gone?
Can't you see you're wrong?

Tear down the walls
Bring 'em down
They'll feed us all
There's enough blood to go around
Tear down the walls
Bring 'em down
They'll feed us all
There's enough blood to go around

We'll grind your bones
With bloody stones

Tear down the walls
Bring 'em down
They'll feed us all
There's enough blood to go around
Track Name: Golem
Pull these pins out of my head
And put a bullet in there instead
I'll start a fire in my bed cause I
I didn't want to
I didn't mean to
Pull these pins out of my head
And put a bullet in there instead
I'll start a fire in my bed cause I
I didn't want to
I didn't mean to

Who put this price on my head?
Who put this price on my head?

Pull these pins out of my head
And put a bullet in there instead
I'll start a fire in my bed cause I
I didn't want to
I didn't mean to
Pull these pins out of my head
And put a bullet in there instead
I'll start a fire in my bed cause I
I didn't want to
I didn't mean to

I didn't want to
I didn't mean to

I didn't want to
I didn't mean to
Track Name: Nazareth
You may withdraw into the mountains
But the desert calls you home
You may drink from the fountain
But the water won't make you whole

It almost slipped away
It almost slipped away

You may withdraw into the ocean
But the desert has a hold
You try to breathe but the air stings
Your body's strained and lungs are old

It almost slipped away
It almost slipped away

The sand cuts like glass
The wind howling like a wolf
All you see is red
While your skin's engulfed
You pray for the moon
And your impending doom
With bloody hands

You build your own tomb

It almost slipped away
It almost slipped away
