When your lungs collapse
When your last breath fails
Upon reflection the fatal choice was yours alone
Convulsions constrict your flesh
Into a portrait of agony
Crushed
Into a portrait of agony
Of agony

This, this is cataclysmic failure
As your organs refuse to prevail
This is, this is pointless suffering
How does it feel to know
You brought this shit
On yourself?

The timing of consequence
Your actions have their' price
I won't pay for your mistakes
As pity grips your nerves
You'll get what you deserve
Now brace yourself
All hell breaks
All hell breaks loose
All hell breaks loose
Yeah

Fucked up, this system
Shut it down
Drowned In Disease
Staccato Bursts of blood prelude a flat line ending
Suffocation of a race
The persistent beings
Of life

    When your lungs collapse. When your last breath fails. Upon reflection the fatal choice was yours alone. Convulsions contrict your flesh into a portrait of agony. Crushed into a portriat of agony. This is Cataclysmic failure, as your organs refuse to prevail. This is pointless suffering. How does it feel to know you brought this shit on yourself? The Dawning of consequence. Your actions have their price. I won't pay for your mistakes; As panic grips your nerves, you'll get what you deserve. Now brace yourself, as all hell breaks. All hell breaks loose. Fucked up. This system's shutting gown, drowned in disease. Staccato Bursts of blood prelude a flat line ending. Suffocation overrides the presistent beat of life.
    THOSE ARE THE PROPER LYRICS. THANK-YOU.
