Tom's Reviews If you don't like this band's music then you're most likely deaf. These 7 tracks move, groove, sway, and crush in all of the best ways. Listen now, and listen loud!!!! Favorite track: Bring All Your Fire.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
