Track Name: Arbiter of Taste (Pre-Production)
Here we are again, its been far too long, I know you wanna heal everyone. 

The scourge of addiction has taken from me a brother and friend, and left on my tongue the taste of the bitter end. 
Him and I, one and the same. But his scars run longer, and deep.

Now I see your ghost, animating your bones
Now I see whats left as you dissolve on your throne.

Oh the arbiter of taste, choose carefully
We're all mad here
Alone with our vices
We sit in the dark
And we're paying the prices

I can see them where they dance upon the hill
Why don’t you follow them
Cremate your cares away 
Sprinkle the ashes upon the script 

Pitiful, incomprehensible demoralization
A mind devoid of stimulation  
Pinnacle of the lowest point
The ones who care, I disappoint 

And you'll be pleased to find out
The world is run by snakes like you
Why don't you join them now?

Now I see your ghost, animating your bones
Now I see whats left as you dissolve on your throne.

She said to me again: oh well, waste away another day. Since I found you out, just say what you were gonna say

Here we are again
Drowning in all
Sometimes I just wanna turn the feelings off

Oh well, waste away another day
Since I found you, just say what you were gonna say
Yet I feel just fine
yet I feel thats a lie

I can see them where they dance upon the hill
I’m hollow now - An empty shell
Addiction is a vile spell 
So say what you're gonna say
Waste away another day
