You shouldn't think like me You shouldn't be like me When a man gets a sign From the gods above It's a light - she's a rose In my abyss of doom There's a sun And a moon involved That's daddy's little girl And she’ll never fail She's a gift, giving life To a broken man There's a shift, it's a blessing To have a daughter my own She's a force Above all mankind That's daddy's little girl And she’ll never fail Just like I did You shouldn't think like me You shouldn't be like me

I found you in a cage Skinny, grey and sick Covered in mange Worms, fleas and ticks Me & the dog die together We'll be attached forever Man's best friend So I brought her home Suckled back to health Fed her meat and bone Forgot hating self Me & the dog die together We'll be attached forever Forever You complete me Your loyalty astounds me You'll detect my cancer Sensing all the sadness I never knew love until I met you If you ever get sick, I'm taking my life too Man's best friend Me & the dog die together

Sadlands 05:10
I see the earth it moves, under your fire A cold and hopeless land, make up your mind I see the after burn, descending eyes I know it’s only words, defending light No slaves It crawls on your skin, spread by your only friend Cold hands around your neck, but then you live again I can only see, the fear and in disease Children are terrified, depending on the night No slaves Are waking up today No slaves Are making your mistakes There’s a time for you, but we can't afford to care There’s a place for you, but you can't fucking go there There’s a time for you, but we can't afford to care There’s a place for you, but we still fucking lie I see the earth it moves, under your fire A cold and hopeless land, make up your mind I see the after burn, descending eyes I know it’s only words, defending light No slaves Are waking up today No slaves Are making your mistakes

You're so fake Fake fake fake fake fake It's an eye for an eye If you take yours Then I'll take mine It's such a shame I'm taking secrets to the grave The lie after lie If you tell yours Then I'll tell mine Pigeon hearted, panic-stricken, yellow-bellied The opposite of brave A form of human cyst Buried in a cave Darker than abyss Shutter from truth, live in avoidance Live in avoidance Fake It's such a shame I'm taking secrets to the grave

Acid Tongue 06:21
Leave Acid tongue And it fucking weighs a ton Done Go, quit and leave It's what I do It's my only skill The skill of fuck you Acid tongue And it fucking weighs a ton It's my fault/it's my fault I want sympathy from my dog and no one else

It's a curse The lost scion It gets worse (I'll get) killed by a mountain lion Cut a tunnel To crawl and die in It's a spirit funnel (I'll get) killed by a mountain lion I won't have any trouble Living in a fucking bubble I don't like going outside It’s a suicide of the mind Build some walls Surround it with mines I'll never get mauled (I'll get) killed by a mountain lion I won't have any trouble Living in a fucking bubble I don't like going outside It’s a fear of all spaces It’s a fear of broken faces I'm free to roam I choose not to Leave my dog and home? I choose not to I won't have any trouble Living in a fucking bubble I don't like going outside
7.
Survive Now you’re fucked and dead Bad ideas left unspoken Why spend the fucking time Because we know you’re full of shit Now you're fucked and dead Bad ideas left unspoken Go bury your soul in A permanent wasteland Why spend the fucking time Because we know you’re full of shit There’s a message but you can’t explain it No more time to die You can’t just ride the waves The voices scream Inside your head Let’s just pretend It’s not happening Your skull fucking rots
8.
That's my boy He's my blood Nurtured from my seed My firstborn Is the sun I need I felt him kick in 1996 He saved my life in 1996 That's my boy He’s my blood He’s such a work of art The day he stood It nearly stopped my heart I felt him kick in 1996 He saved my life in 1996 He's a chip off the old block The ground buckles when he walks Crushing all fears with a rock He's a chip off the old block That's my boy I felt him kick in 1996 He saved my life in 1996
9.
Bury your head in the sand To live the lies of the ignorant And lay in their graves We can cry for the gluttonous Bury your head in the sand It’s a paycheck and it’s always gone Till there's nothing left So you can starve and can beg more Bury your head in the Top-down Wage slave Criminal It’s all they really care about Maybe we can all just leave
10.
They seem so nice And give me hope Feed me bread Blessed by the Pope He rubs my back When I don't ask He gets undressed We're taking a bath? I didn't know it was wrong I didn't know you were scum I didn't know you were sick I didn't know you could be so cold Rope Guilt will follow you into the grave Get the rope Defrocked, again I hope you die sooner than later I didn't know it was wrong I didn't know you were scum I didn't know you were sick I didn't know you could be so cold Rope Rope Guilt will follow you into the grave Rope Guilt will follow you into the grave Rope Guilt will follow you into the grave Get the rope Defrocked, again Now that my life is a wreck Put the rope around your neck

about

-(16)- return with their new album, Dream Squasher. A testament to the power of loss, every moment of Dream Squasher casts the San Diego band into new, deeper depths. "A conscious effort was made to inject positivity into the lyrical themes," guitarist and lead vocalist Bobby Ferry explains. "The best we could come up with is loving your dog so much, you'd end up killing yourself if the dog dies."

The tragic, violent intent in this expression won't be lost on listeners either; at any given moment of Dream Squasher, -(16)-'s bouldering guitars crash into one another, set atop equally pulverizing bass and drums. Thunderous riffs express equal parts melancholy and fury. For the first time in the band's 29-year career, Dream Squasher sees Bobby Ferry stepping forward and taking the helm on lead vocals, rounding out the band with both monumental moments of singing and pained screams of pure vitriol. From standout tracks like "Candy in Spanish", to bruisers like "Agora (Killed by a Mountain Lion)" and the mountainous melodies of "Sadlands", Dream Squasher proves to be -(16)-'s return to form - where riffs dominate and anger reigns supreme.
