Track Name: Prayer To God
To the one true God above:
Here is my prayer -
Not the first you've heard, but the first I wrote.
(not the first, but the others were a long time ago).
There are two people here, and I want you to kill them both.

Her - she can go quietly, by disease or a blow
To the base of her neck,
Where her necklaces close,
Where her garments come together,
Where I used to lay my face...
That's where you oughta kill her,
In that particular place.

Him - just fucking kill him, I don't care if it hurts.
Yes I do, I want it to,
Fucking kill him but first
Make him cry like a woman,
(no particular woman),
Let him hold out, hold back
(thinking someone or other might come).

Kill him.
Fucking kill him.
Kill him already, kill him.
Fucking kill him, fucking kill him,
Kill him already, kill him,
Fucking kill him!
Amen.
Track Name: Life Is Cheap
Feel so numb feel so dead
Just felt like someone hit my head
Like someone knew just what to do
Poison the masses catch the running few
Feel so empty feel so old
Just waiting to feel the death like cold
Eating away at my life ties
Not really knowing not caring why

Life is pretty cheap. sold a decade at a time
Life is pretty cheap. it’s so easy to find
Life is pretty cheap. there’s really nothing new
Life is pretty cheap.
Except for the cold delirious few

Dying too young living too fast
It’s starting to feel like I’m living in the past
The pain is strong more than one can bear
Why is there religion. it’s just not fair
People cling to things to make to make their lives seem real
Crawling like bugs at some fool leader’s heels
Boasting of freedom when they’re tied down with chains
It’s time to give it up. here comes the death rain

Life is pretty cheap. sold a decade at a time
Life is pretty cheap. it’s so easy to find
Life is pretty cheap. there’s really nothing new
Life is pretty cheap.
Life is pretty cheap.
Except for the cold delirious few
