Track Name: Krypt Keep
Howl at the moon; the end is coming soon.
Gather your loves, tell ‘em you fucked up.

Making the same mistake that I made at my wake.
Searching for a way to settle down with you and make this crypt our,
Home.

O, give me one more day, to crawl out of this grave.
O, love please show me grace, for my flaws won’t wash away.
And I know I’ve made mistakes, but I need one chance to say,
That you were the one whose face, was alive in this dead place.

O, just give me one more day.
O, just give me life.
Track Name: Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down
Satan, your kingdom must come down,
Satan, your kingdom must come down,
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
Satan, your kingdom must come down.

They’re gonna pray until they tear your kingdom down,
Pray until they tear your kingdom down,
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
Satan, your kingdom must come down.

Satan, your kingdom must come down,
Satan, your kingdom must come down,
I heard the voice of Jesus cry,
Satan, your kingdom must come down.
Satan, your kingdom must come down.
Satan, your kingdom must come down.
Track Name: Come Down, Egret
Come down soon from your tree branch,
‘Cause there are predators lurking near you.

Come down soon, this is the way it’ll end,
With all these vultures circling your bones.

There is no stopping nature,
It’s kill or be killed,
Or both in due time.

So come down soon, O little egret!
Let’s face the world proper,
And go out with a bang.

Make your home down by the ocean,
Your feet in the ground and wind at your back.

And as the tides roll against your favor,
Keep yourself steady,
As nighttime moves in.

So make your last stand,
‘Cause you should defend,
If this is the end,
If this is the end.

Then make your last stand,
‘Cause you should defend,
If this is the end,
Draw blood.

(But do let us go downstairs, there are such pretty rooms there!)
Track Name: Monostrophe
Don’t you go and get excited about the future, the only thing that changes is your walking speed,
To your home.

Don’t you go out asking questions; you’ll only get a bullshit answer.

When I was young, I could not picture myself existing in the future.
And now that I am older, still I have a problem seeing myself,
Coming home.

(I’m never coming home.)
