about

Southern California’s godfathers of bum-out 16 return with another masterpiece of bleakness on ‘Deep Cuts From Dark Clouds’. 16 maintain their position atop the mountain of sludge-metal. What has always set 16 apart from their doom and sludge contemporaries has been their ability to set the utter bleakness of singer Cris Jerue’s lyrics to undeniably catchy and heavy riffs and grooves, and ‘Deep Cuts From Dark Clouds’ finds the band absolutely perfecting this already addictive combo. Never has extreme depression and despair sounded so good!

Track Name: Theme from ‘Pillpopper’
What went wrong
the sky turned gray
my exit plan
is underway
seeing red (seeing red)
soaked in blue
a mouth full of meds
I chew 'em up real fast
a life torn to shreds
my wreckage of the past

black and blue
from head to toe
a slip of tongue
in utero

seeing red (seeing red)
soaked in blue (soaked in blue)
a mouth full of meds
I chew 'em up real fast
a life torn to shreds
my wreckage of the past

where there's hatred
you'll find beauty

seeing red (seeing red)
soaked in blue (soaked in blue)
a mouth full of meds
I chew 'em up real fast
a life torn to shreds
my wreckage of the past

push down and turn
Track Name: Parasite
throw it away
bury it ddep
little things you are
I'm losing sleep
ten thousand miles
you reek of it
you reek of shit
damage I can't believe
I fell for you and your damage
when you're in a room
filling tents
glassy eyes
and whore like scents
I should've known
a wreck inside
all your ghosts
are reaching out
drowning in your lies
holding on your words
fear in your eyes
blood in my teeth
parasite
ugly
Track Name: Her Little “Accident”
Pacing back and forth
What have I done?
First I kicked down the door
Loaded my shotgun

If I can't have you
Then no one will

The outcome is hazy
I'm sorry with a smirk
If you call me crazy
I'll show up at your work

If I can't have you (if I can't have you)
Then no one will

Eat. Sleep. Breathe
Obsession
(your fault)

One track mind
Vendetta
(your fault)

I'm lying in wait
Lacking sympathy
Gather up the bait
Then you will be mine
...forever
(your fault)

Her little accident
Her little accident
Track Name: The Sad Clown
get help
ashes in the sheets
glass on the floor
stabbing your feet
they're covered in sores

burning the candle at both ends

the downward spiral
encased in cement
plunging vitals
are easy to forget

burning the candle at both ends
burning the candle at both ends

voices in my head
won't get out of bed
rejected
connected together
tethered forever

we wander the street
then find it bittersweet
incomplete wreck
get help

burning the candle at both ends

voices in my head
won't get out of head
rejected
connected together
tethered
whatever
Track Name: Ants in my Bloodstream
now trade your soul
for a habit to pollute
descending hell hole
with no parachute

the seeds will grow
down to the bone
the lowest of low
will relapse alone

controlling medication
deal with the seduction
no
never ending self destruction
never ending self destruction

dry heave into a bowl
of blood and regret
serene black hole

controllingmedication
deal with the seduction
no
never ending self destruction
never ending self destruction

save me from my salvation
numbing sense of compulsion
overflowing receptors

I've got ants in my bloodstream
I've got ants in my bloodstream
it's a bad dream
Track Name: Broom Pusher
you choke
and then you scream
constantly crushed

within a dream
rampantly
cherish the string of bad luck
a hoax followed by a cheat
persisting sores
melting in heat
lingering
it's awkward
when goals are squandered
Track Name: Opium Hook
it looks like I'm slipping again
my worst enemy
has become a friend
now it's winter
the sordid struggle
the sun's going down
we're in trouble
feel it burn
rock bottom
crawl and squirm
rock bottom
my mind's filled with stinging pain and the sound of a voice that I can't explain
in a world of emptiness
there's no love to express
the spark is gone
I’m attached and obsessed
So absorbed
Strung out
progress setback / deathbed
we’re sick in the head
Track Name: Bowels of a Baby Killer
a lousy joke has been told
being double crossed never gets old
blame
it’s not your fault
shame
but you deserve it
wolf in sheep’s clothing
you just woke up
then failed the test
my guilt buttons
will never be pressed
lies nothing but lies
inside the womb
of a liar and a cheat
they climb the walls
like they’re rats under heat
infanticide
sudden dilation
it’s so ferocious
then extraction
it’s so atrocious
Track Name: Beyond Fixable
underneath tons of weight
I tied a noose out of cotton
resurrect my death date
forgiven not forgotten

jumping bandwagons
chasing the dragon

isolation gets inhaled
eating fruit that’s rotten
then the train gets derailed

forgiven not forgotten
jumping bandwagons
chasing the dragon
we’re acting like maggots
chasing the dragon

I’m gagged and bound
in a plastic shroud
the king is crowned
by a big black cloud
Track Name: Only Photographs Remain
god's arrived too soon
for her soul
she can't hid
been set free
unchained
feel my pain
only photographs remain
the final stage
bright light
turn the page with pride say goodbye
exclaimed prices are getting steep
tropic of cancer
sinking further deep
tropic of cancer
nightly counting sheep
tropic of cancer
what will you keep?
tropic of cancer
time runs out
prices getting steep
tropic of cancer
sinking further deep
tropic of cancer
feel my pain
only photographs remain
