Arthur Hastings By Jove! More sonic mayhem from our favourite feline frolic. Even the guitar got a good spanking on this one. Excellent remixes too and I must admit the nostalgic value of Abbey Road as one of my earliest musical recollections is responsible for having special feels for the closing track. Jolly good stuff i say! Favorite track: Born of Rats (Shit Giver Remix).

Track Name: Born of Rats
Thin hours trickle by, rotting in this box
In a world full of piss, a lifeless lump
Your integrity scantilly clad in dollar bills
Such a hopeless disease, an empty fix

The rats eats their young in the shadow of genocide
The ricochet
The aftermath
Cold, broken and shamed
bleeding in perfect silence
The monument to indifference

You're born of rats
The confronter, The decider, The snake and the tiger
You're born of rats
The cursed and impotent, The acidic rodent

you're vermin, you're destined
for weakness, a burden
Track Name: Bled Dry
nothing left to swallow
the snake entwines
and pulls tighter
exhausted, bled dry

the rite of depletion
crafting a man only to take him apart
motifs in a pattern
the unsound, the question

the air growing thin
the crows sing your name
collapse and sustain
the fear in your veins
the trembling skin
its speaking within

the vision of anger
dreams of a man that was taken apart
defaults to a wreckage
the whirling, unfolding
a fault of redemption
a piece of a man once destroyed now erased
the culling of answers
the onset, disaster

The depths of his hatred
laid waste to the man that was destined to fail
the last twitch of rage
exhausted and bled dry
