starwing_digital It's difficult to pick ONE favourite track! There's so much to love on this album. One thing I love about it is the clear story arc it has--I think that's quite special, and enhances the memorable listening experience of 'Carnal Insect.' Favorite track: Little Light.

kizunaut Highly recommended for fans of 90s industrial rock. Nails the classic sound of the genre very well while not sounding a carbon copy of any particular artist - innovation in mastery of the source material. Favorite track: Another Heap.

Track Name: Black Widow (feat. Plike)
You set this thing in motion
All dressed up in a lie
You toy with my emotions
I don't care why
I made a big mistake alright
Can't take another step
Vibrations on the spider's web
You'll eat me alive

I want you to shine upon me
And tell me I'm good
Fuel for the fire, you say
You make my day

The sting might hurt a bit
While the numbness settles in

I want you to shine upon me
And tell me I'm good
Fuel for the fire, you say
You make my day

I'm clinging in this fuzzy feeling
I'm hanging by a thread
All keen and pacified
Obsessed what you said
Now don't you think I'm not alright
Just need another fix

I want you to shine upon me
And tell me I'm good
Fuel for the fire, you say
You make my day

Track Name: Carnal Insect
Where there’s a tragedy
You see an opportunity
You come and go and screw them all
You’re such a whore of the moment

Heart bleed and no saline
Disregarded self esteem
Insult to injury
In this horrible moment

I can’t pretend
How could you live with yourself?
You’re like an insect
You’re like an insect
Fly all around
Sucking sugar out
Your long lost friend

I’m glad I feel this way
Gotta keep my head above the ground
Until the day I die
Gonna make it sure you’re not around

Man-child of the century
Another wasted possibility
You come and go and screw them all
Being such a horrible person

I can’t pretend
How could you live with yourself?
You’re like an insect
You’re like an insect
Fly all around
Sucking sugar out
Your long lost friend

Gonna make it sure you’re not around
Gonna make it sure you’re not around

Track Name: Another Heap
Law of the jungle
Hunter and prey
Aren't you a fat one
You don't run, you stay

You smell that fresh new blood
You dug your claws in
You know it's a race to the bottom
And you've gotta win

Fuck regulations, you're here to steal
It's all about how you feel

Dung beetle found another heap
Cycle of shit that goes on and on and on and on
Your greed is your queen and king
You let the insect in
Your rotten dreams are what you reap

No hesitation, just overtake
Nothing ever matters anyway
Take one, take two, say “fuck you”
I know you hate me, I hate me too

Dung beetle found another heap
Cycle of shit that goes on and on and on and on
Your greed is your queen and king
You let the insect in
Your rotten dreams are what you reap

Track Name: Sisyphus
I have a hole inside my head
Realized that I'm hiding there
No hope for no return
Sellsword of my kind

Once I heard my voice
Within all that noise
Oh, I went too far
Digging down my scars

And all you do is abuse me
Sweet little lies defeat me

Gave you a shoulder to lean on
A rope to hang your skeleton
Lo and behold, I had nothing
My walls were caving in

House of cards will fall
Sooner than you'd hope
Sisyphus sure knows
What's coming down the slope

And all you do is abuse me
Sweet little lies defeat me
For what it's worth, I said
I might as well be dead
Dead to your world while quite alive

I have a hole inside my head
I'm hiding there
Lo and behold, I had nothing
My walls were caving in
My walls were caving in
My walls were caving in

Track Name: My Faith in You
It's all the same,
Who's your sun, who's your moon
I know it for a fact you'll fuck it up soon
I measure distance between the two
And in the end, I lost my faith in you

Come say your peace, be done with it
End of the day you'll choke on your own shit
I lost my faith in you

You can't tell who's the king, who's the pawn
You use each other from dusk 'til dawn
Go feed your hunger, go feed your flesh
A sheep needs the clothes of wolf to dress

Come say your peace, be done with it
End of the day you'll choke on your own shit
Oh, shit!
I lost my faith in you

I lost my faith in you
I lost my faith in you

Time is the hammer, and you're the little nail
From your conception, you're doomed to fail
Go fight the power, beat them in the game
Then you will see you're more or less the same

Come say your peace, be done with it
End of the day you'll choke on your own shit
I lost my faith in you

Come say your peace, be done with it
End of the day you'll choke on your own shit
I lost my faith in you

Track Name: Little Light
I think that I can recognize all the people,
All the voices, and the sheeple
Humming in my head

Dreams of the dead
Woes and the joys
Past and present
Delight, resent
I have a fear
Afraid to light
Light of my own
Within the night
It burned my eyes
Too many times
I've lost you in the flames

Dreams of the dead
Woes and the joys
Past and present
Delight, resent
I have a fear
Afraid to light
Light of my own
Within the night
It burned my eyes
Too many times
I've lost you in the flames

You make my heart soar,
Little light within the flames
I'm scared to my core
Of all the joy, the fun, and games
And now when you're here
This feeling reappears
It may mean we say goodbye
It could be that I will die

You make my heart soar,
Little light within the flames
The flame...
Of all the joy, the fun, and games
And games...
This feeling reappears
It may mean we say goodbye
It could be that I will

Track Name: Race to the Red Lights
Hey Mr. Know It All
You got all the answers but wont get it
Through the spring to your fall
Square peg the pieces 'til they fit in

You want it all but you can have none
Spin in the space next to the sun

Hey Mr. Rule 'Em All
Rifle all your lies into a line
What goes up, down it falls
Beetles below wine and dine

You're the last dumb fuck who fights
You won the race to the red lights

Hey Mr. Criminal
I stand behind the force of your will
Exercise futility
We're all out here to loot and kill

Don't get too personal
You can't get away
Now can you?
Your stage is terminal
You made your fucking bed
Now didn't you?

You want it all but you can have none
Spin in the space next to the sun
You're the last dumb fuck who fights
You won the race to the red lights

You want it all but you can have none
Spin in the space next to the sun
You're the last dumb fuck who fights
You won the race to the red lights

You want it all but you can have none
Spin in the space next to the sun
You're the last dumb fuck who fights
You won the race to the red lights

Track Name: Bug Eater
I'm not here to sell you Jesus
He's not a fucking whore
Not here to float above you
Like a fairy from some lore

I came here against my own will
To watch you fuckers burn
Bit by bit, or all at once
We each get our turn

Come here to hear the silence of your fate
Come here to hear the silence of those who tried and failed
Come here to hear the silence of those failed

You set this thing in motion
All dressed up in a lie
And all you do is abuse me
I don't care why

Where there's a tragedy
There's opportunity
My walls were caving in
Little light lost within

Come here to hear the silence of your fate
Come here to hear the silence of those who tried and failed
Come here to hear the silence of those failed
