Track Name: Rotten Teeth
Good morning
I saw you in my dream
In a world we'll spawn
We're chess piece royalty
of solemn pawns

They all bid you awake
Lay down a gold bouquet
Rosy coffin clogger
Pulled a veil over my face

Brilliant skies
Dark horizon
Spirals entice
Why the hell did I say no

Empty pumpkins grow
dormant volcano
Your only home
Hold your breath and jump inside

A smile without eyes
A treat I baked
It's doughy and expired
Will you tire of the taste

Find a home for all the skulls
Light basking on tombs
Green still lingers by and by
Past my helium balloons

Toxic clouds
Safe cement caves
Shady eyes
You have everything you need

Candles light
My own recipe
No surprise
You forgot all about me

I'll abide
To tedious tides
Salty eyes
Sting with each dive

Oh
What is next
To dismember
He breaks his neck
You crush my shoulder

Squeeze
Every last
Tube of frosting
I'm empty
You've just begun rising

Oh
Last in line
Do not despair
There's enough
Crumbs for everyone

Steal just one
Sweet sugary taste
Drink up
Fly away

Lather me
Gleaming pristine glaze
Smile
Drown the page

Frost over
Caramelized mistakes
Cut up
Melt the cake

La la la
La da da da da
Wake up
But stay in place

Life is a
Dumb video game
And I lose it
Everyday

Why do you
Always try to take
My turn
Each time we play

Spoil sweets
With words I couldn't say
Sprinkles
In disarray

I'm your napkin
And you think it's okay
Shut up
Go away

Steal just one
Sweet sugary taste
Drink up
Fly away

Lather me
Gleaming pristine glaze
Smile
Drown the page

Frost over
Caramelized mistakes
Cut up
Melt the cake

la la la
La la da da da
Consume
Submit obey
Track Name: The Kettle
Just a sliver
Slight, still figure
Moving upwards
Growing smaller

You can't follow
Too weak, too shallow
Stripped wings too frail
To bare you upwards
Tin Angels circle, embrace you
Bright fingers crawl up, caress you
White hot, they'll dig in, they'll burn you
Black, burned, black
Bright red, they're watching your eyes shift
Down, down, down
But don't think about that now
But are you leaving soon?
Look away don't think about that now
But are you leaving soon?
Shut your mouth, don't think about that now
But are you leaving soon?
But are you leaving soon?
Just a sliver
Gray-black figure
Like a storm head
Angel of death
Watch you wallow
To meek to follow
Tail tucked inward
Hunched, bowed figure
Pious hands high
Beg for mercy
Hurtling higher
Growing smaller
Tin Angels circle, embrace you
Bright fingers crawl up, caress you
White hot, they'll dig in, they'll burn you
Black, burned, black
Bright red, they're watching your eyes shift
Down, down, down
But don't think about that now
But are you leaving soon?
Look away don't think about that now
But are you leaving soon?
Shut your mouth, don't think about that now
But are you leaving soon?
But are you leaving soon?
But are you leaving soon?
But are you leaving soon?
But are you leaving soon?
Track Name: Nui Gurimi
ぬいぐるみ (Nui Gurimi) / Stuffed Animal

Wander
Off too far
Box up
Your heart

Quiet
Stalling
Won't work
You'll see

Rip me from my roots
Peel off my petals
Glitches drown out what leaves haven't already froze
Never go home
Kill or perish kill or perish
In this world that is all I am programmed to

Understand I'm
Only obliged
Stuffed animal
In a garden of prizes
Don't you want love?
Everyone does
I'll give you some
idiot die

Struggle I'll break you
Asphyxiate your
determination
I can't understand it

Never forgive me
Your grip is slipping
Please just let me win
I don't want to let go

I'll keep you here underground
You'll never see the surface
Ah ah
Ah ah

A stalemate that I created
I don't deserve your mercy
Ah ah
Ah ah

I'll string you up
Thread and Stuffing
Vines intertwine
Through your fingers down your spine
Marionette
I'll be your tour guide
Entangled with
saccharine lies

Struggle I'll break you
Asphyxiate your
determination
I can't understand it

You won't forgive me
Your grip is slipping
Please just let me win
I don't want to

Run away or satiate
My curiosity
Why can't I be okay with just one real heart beat
My arms and legs are missing
I cannot find my soul
I'm nothing but a vessel that can never grow up

So I'll hold you
私のぬいぐるみ / watashi no nuigurumi
Lost souls
Add to my menagerie
prescription
daily dose of Adrenaline
Warms my blood
hardens my skeleton
Yes I bite
Mouth full of thorns for teeth
Sparing me
Only keeps me smiling
Play my game
One you'll never want to quit
Don't love me
I'll leave you in stitches
Stitches, stitches, stitches, sti-i-itai
Stitches, stitches, stitches, sti-i-itai

I'll keep you here underground
You'll never see the surface
Ah ah
Ah ah

a stalemate that I created
I don't deserve your mercy
Ah ah
Ah ah

Please stay with me underground
we'll never need the surface
Ah ah
Ah ah

Won't you just please let me win
Why do you give me mercy
Stop it stop it stop it

I'll come back you know
I'll come back for your soul
Do you really think I've learned anything
I'll take everything you love
Turn it to dust
Why are you being so nice to me
I know that you're not the same
You're better than them
For you I'll pretend to be human
No I'm not ready
To say goodbye
to someone like you again
Track Name: Ink Beach
Oh creamer queen, I'll intervene, invade your privacy
Sort through it all, till curtain call, shout down your dynasty
But all these thoughts, these clockwork chords, pull at my tendons
Oh puppeteer, please set me down, restore my agency

But I'll never be like her
(Expectations)
But I'll never be a god
(Like megatons)
But I'll never find all those extremes
(Strapped to your toes)
that you are, I'll never be enough

But I'll never be like her
(Expectations)
But I'll never be a god
(Like megatons)
But I'll never find all those extremes
(Strapped to your toes)
that you are, I'll never be enough

But won't you quarter my atrium
(Just take it all)
But won't you take up these
ventricles
(Don't be so cold)
But won't you liquify and fill me up to the brim, make me right again

But won't you quarter my atrium
(Just take it all)
But won't you take up these
ventricles
(Don't be so cold)
But won't you liquify and fill me up to the brim, make me right again

Chilled by your absence
But I'm slowly imploding, but I'm crushing in
Can't you support me? Contort me, twist me up till-
Warmed by this abscess
But it's bubbling up, but now it's primed to burst
isn't it gorgeous
Engorge us, fill me up till-

Chilled by your absence
But I'm slowly imploding, but I'm crushing in
Can't you support me? Contort me, twist me up till-
Warmed by this abscess
But it's bubbling up, but now it's primed to burst
isn't it gorgeous
Engorge us, fill me up till-
Gorge us, fill me up till-
Gorge us, fill me up till-

Bright milky claws
Great star filled maw
Heavenly beauty
But who could ever be
Something so obscene
So black and brooding
Great lonely God
Miserable visage
Unmarred perfection
But you're all I've got, but I'm far too small
But I'll never measure up

将来の中で 幸せになりたい

笑、笑, おねがいします

あなたはすばらしい

私が悪ですね

それでも愛して

(shourai no naka de, shiawase ni naritai

Warae, warae, onegaishimasu

Anata wa subarashii

Watashi ga warui desu ne)

Ribbons imprison me
Seized by capricious strings
Help me extend my reach
Eventually it
Falls short
Shadowed by deities
Quiet calamities
Slowly but surely
My gait takes me
Forward

Gravity
Oh, oh
Twisting me
Up up
Ubiquitously
Drowning the sky in the sea
But at least at this rate
You fall closer

to me
Oh, oh,
oh
Lukewarm toxins pop in clogged vessels but it's all I need
Fill me up till

Chilled by your absence
But I'm slowly imploding, but I'm crushing in
Can't you support me? Contort me, twist me up till-
Warmed by this abscess
But it's bubbling up, but now it's primed to burst
isn't it gorgeous
Engorge us, fill me up till-

Chilled by your absence
But I'm slowly imploding, but I'm crushing in
Can't you support me? Contort me, twist me up till-
Warmed by this abscess
But it's bubbling up, but now it's primed to burst
isn't it gorgeous
Engorge us, fill me up till-
Gorge us, fill me up till-
Gorge us, fill me up till-
