Disease 03:40
Fuck you if you think you live outside the lie My life is another kind of disease You're the right man I'm the wrong With definitions you kill me Conform the only way to stay alive I wont but I swear that I'll be touching you You're the right man I'm the wrong With definitions you kill me Betray treat me like a fatal foe I care though I swear I'll never show it to you You're the right man I'm the wrong With definitions you kill me Live a lie, hate me I'm the ugliest by far Circumstance create me take my pride away Break me look at me I'm as sick as they come

Not Mine 03:50
This is your world not mine It's a cruel world unkind Fall in line I fall in line I'm falling Drown yourself I drown myself I'm drowning If you cut me I bleed You force me to my knees Fall in line I fall in line I'm falling Drown yourself I drown myself I'm drowning I try to get up it's a strain You encourage me with the cane Fall in line I fall in line I'm falling Drown yourself I drown myself I'm drowning

Lie Breed 04:30
Was it all a show from you Did you plan it all yourself I never knew I was so despised Tell me another of your lies Lies breed more lies and you're full of it dear Never stopped to wonder why Hurt from inside out you should know We never planned it to be so Now you sit there and your Lies breed more lies and you're full of them Mr. minister See it from our point of view Down here looking up at your Lies breed more lies and you're full of them dear Lies breed more lies Mr. Minister

Sheepfarm 04:24
On television from magazine stands I direct your every move Controlling your free mind as to what to think and who to praise Bow down and worship me you're sheep and I'm your shepherd Look at me and see all the things you want to be Bow down my sheep Elevated to god status a deity of no form and all You see me you hear me no thought no trace of ill will The world is my church media my preacher capital my pope Acceptance my absolution, pay me and you're free to be my slave Bow down and worship me you're sheep and I'm your shepherd Look at me and see all the things you want to be Bow down my sheep Burn the heretic in clothes of no brand a heathen worth all scorn Uncharted music speak in devils tongue to blind my flock and me Bow down and worship me you're sheep and I'm your shepherd Look at me and see all the things you want to be Bow down my sheep Magazines preach as tv speaks of things made beautiful for you I'm charming when necessary me the corporate god Bow down and worship me you're sheep and I'm your shepherd Look at me and see all the things you want to be Bow down my sheep

Deviant 05:04
Sitting on your bloody throne using us as drones Working class hero took a lone gnawing on my bones Rip my tongue out burn my eyes I see through your disguise Feeding all your children with innocence and lies Bleeding like a slaughtered pig you cut the biggest slice Beating on the weaker man you keep us on a leash Living through a nightmare where faces laugh at me Waking up to find the truth they're pointing at me Walking down the dusty steps now stop pushing me The darkness down these stairs now embracing me Lacking in all called dignity you keep us on our feet Torching pride and purity like an animal in heat Kick my head in shut my mouth I tell the truths you hide Knowing pink has turned to black color lost it's taste Picking on my way of life dumping me like waste Touching all made beautiful staining it it's diseased Living through a nightmare where faces laugh at me Waking up to find the truth they're pointing at me Walking down the dusty steps now stop pushing me The darkness down these stairs now embracing me Living through a nightmare where faces laugh at me Waking up to find the truth they're pointing at me Walking down the dusty steps now stop pushing me The darkness down these stairs now embracing me Living through a nightmare where faces laugh at me Waking up to find the truth they're pointing at me Walking down the dusty steps now stop pushing me The darkness down these stairs now embracing me Newborn like a velvet god now I'm breaking free Watch it friend I'm coming to collect so fear me

Yes, you said fool, made me agree You made me small, to make you feel bigger Oh yes it hurts, just like you planned The things I did, you told me is worth nothing Am I nothing in your eyes? could be should be Wanting more you feed me less starving choking You want me down on my knees crawling begging I'm not good enough, well then, who the hell are you? The words you use, to break me down Pinned and labelled in your peep-hole freak-show What are you, that you can judge me A perfect square? well, I will burn brighter Am I nothing in your eyes? could be should be Wanting more you feed me less starving choking You want me down on my knees crawling begging I'm not good enough, well then, who the hell are you? You suffocate me, won't let me breathe You want me dead, an empty square There's no limit, to the names you'll call me But I'm not dead or stupid, I'll fight you to the end Am I nothing in your eyes? could be should be Wanting more you feed me less starving choking You want me down on my knees crawling begging I'm not good enough well, then who the hell are you?

Kerygma 03:54
I puncture your head with words that hurt I do this to make you understand My sticks and stones are verbal still they stick and leave you thirsty for more I'll never stop telling the truth lies will never matter If you won't listen to me then stay conform I stand here burning at the stake our culture made us what we are Brain dead zombie like we walk as if we couldn't know I'll never submit to silky smooth the words they use to melt us down I fight to keep myself alive this is my religion I'll never stop telling the truth lies will never matter If you won't listen to me then stay conform I am here to pick you up to help you to react and then Search inside yourself and find the one they want to bury I just want you to break free to see the lie they call a man This illusion won't last long when we unite grow strong I'll never stop telling the truth lies will never matter If you won't listen to me then stay conform No bliss in ignorance a smoke screen of control They fear individual thought refuse submission

Fairy Tale 04:28
I'm tired of this thing I have kept inside of me All that has been is lost in fear I'm waiting for what's still so come I lied to you I cheated on you I screamed at you just to let me be I wanted you to leave me alone you didn't listen to me so I will say it again Tired of this fucking bullshit Tired of these fucking lies I fell in love with you I worshipped you I wanted you to understand me You screamed at me you lied to me you cheated on me you must have hated me Tired of this fucking bullshit Tired of these fucking lies I wanted you I needed some skin I worshipped you like a fairy-queen You locked me in you fucked me up I'm losing control over myself Time to crack up time to give in no time to lose because life's too short Too short for us to fuck things up I don't want too lose anymore time No more of this, no more regrets, no more control, no, nothing else Tired of this fucking bullshit Tired of these fucking lies I fell in love with you I worshipped you I wanted you to understand

Untold 04:26
You should have been there but you closed your eyes Washed my brain clean with the words of god Burned my skin lived in sin Here on earth they gave me hell Built busy bonfires sister dance in flames Charcoal babies scream your name Justified your deeds with words once told The seven sins you know you live them all The lions have swallowed the lambs tonight The lambs for slaughter were you and I The lions wore collars, white as their face Destroyed the old ways with whips and chains Claimed immortal souls everlasting pain Stole daughters and sons cried in vain Justified your deeds with words once told The seven sins you know you live them all Forced on me and my virginity You filled us with your seed and let us bleed The lions have swallowed the lambs tonight The lambs for slaughter were you and I The lions wore collars white as their face Destroyed the old ways with whips and chains Claimed a whole world in the name of god You baptized nations drenched in blood Mistook nudity for obscenity now who's obscene The killer or the killed Justified your deeds with words once told The seven sins you know you live them all Forced on me and my virginity You filled us with your seed and let us bleed Justified your deeds with words once told The seven sins you know you live them all Blinded by your faith you suffocate You motherfuckers follow silently

You've reached a point in your life where you don't want to go back nor forth. I'll never stagnate like you that's why you hate me I am content with me I'm not ashamed of me anymore You'll never understand me, that's why you hate me I'll never forgive you I'll never understand why You made me hate myself you pulled me deeper down I could have been my star I could have been that bright You made me loose my glow You pulled me deeper down You've never come to terms with your own pathetic, empty life I'll never lead that kind of life, that's why you hate me I owe you nothing at all, still you make me crawl back and forth You'll always want to be like me, that's why you hate me I'll never forgive you I'll never understand why You made me hate myself you pulled me deeper down I could have been my star I could have been that bright You made me loose my glow You pulled me deeper down I'll never be your whore, so stop fucking me You will never be free like me so stop I'll never stop to be the creep, won't stop pushing back You are a mountain of dirt on my back, I won't stop shouting no!

I believe in my own darker self I hear my veins screaming for cold steel So I've fallen this far like a rebel angel burning as I fall I enter the domains of my hell I'm told death is destruction not bliss I'm not so sure though I'll never die by my own hand Suicide it beckons it calls Lures me away to the purple places Suicide calls me I am the moth and the flame this beaten mind is mine to break Suicide it beckons it calls Lures me away to the purple places Suicide calls me Suck me dry killing time wonder why I'm on fire Yes you lie when you try to deny what I am Wish you knew how I felt when I fell from the sky I'm the lie they try to hide incisions in my life I am the king of self-loathing I'm the monster maggot worm Suicide it beckons it calls Lures me away to the purple places Suicide calls me

Sickening 03:58
So the world spins and we spin with it to the end of days to the end of grace I am worthless I serve no purpose a waste of space sickening in my disgrace I am spineless out of courage I have no place a blot on this planets face So the world spins and we spin with it To the end of all I'll embrace the fall So the world spins and we spin with it From birth to death from our first to last breath I will always remember I will never forget and every december I live with regret So the world spins and we spin with it in The hands of fate it's all too late I am worthless I serve no purpose just a waste of space sickening in my disgrace I am the maggot I am the worm I crawl beneath everything I twitch and turn I will always remember I will never forget and every december I live with regret So the world spins and I spin with it in constant self-loathing please stop loving me So the world spins and I spin with it to the end of me it's the end of me I will always remember I will never forget and every december I live with regret You will never remember you will always forget who what and why is this my goodbye?

about

Roots:
In the beginning an idea, the seed planted in
thick soil it takes roots to grow a tree and a
tree to bear fruit branches stretching for the
sky, stretching here and there to this to that
Bite the apple! 20 years past and I’m still the
monster maggot worm, the disease touching
from a distance, across time, from the past
into the future We were there, now we are here
ready to take a new step Forward? Backwards?
Or slightly to the side? Time will tell as the tree
keeps growing, new branches, new fruit And who
knows, maybe new seeds, new beginnings. Were
you there for our journey, our growth? Will you be
there? Join us as we keep growing. Bite the apple!

about

Guilt Trip Stockholm, Sweden

Guilt Trip was born out of the ashes of electronic maurauder Chirurgie Esthetique, stalwarts of Sweden’s industrial scene who were active throughout the nineties. Fuelled by dissent and incisive observations of mankind’s less enticing traits, Guilt Trip have little time for posturing and prefer to go straight for the listener’s jugular. ... more
