Skinless Moreau, New York

SKINLESS alternates between high-speed salvos and pile-driving grooves that embody and amplify the hardest-hitting hallmarks of U.S. metal. Powerful vocals punch through churning guitar crunch to an untouchable new apex. SKINLESS pile-drives the standard death metal formula and rallies fans with the forward-charge of wreckage-provoking vocals, demolishing beats, and ravaging riffs. ... more

Track Name: Foreshadowing Our Demise
"Sit back, slip on your absorbant undergarments, and let the mayhem begin"

No dispelling through retrospection
Unresolved woe, flash burn wounds infection
Light keeps dimming as wide eyes thicken
The dust I'm breathing burns
Mortal ties are synthesized, decipher scripts obscure
Conjectured spirits ruled this world
The dust I'm breathing burns
Decay, footsteps ahead of all
Degenerate with care
It came here to claim lost souls
And blow away the damned
Reality, deceit, bleed through my eyes
Fleeting insight of what should be
A blinding light will fuck humanity...
Deprivation of our breath, the circle is complete
No time to speculate, to feel, to see, or even be
Roaches flock to claim their throne
As victors of what was
This tundra's theirs to rule supreme
Ashes, ice, and dust
Light keeps dimming as wide eyes thicken
The dust I'm breathing burns
Mortal ties are synthesized, decipher scripts obscure
Conjectured spirits ruled this world
The dust I'm breathing burns
Track Name: Smothered
"The forecast calls for destruction tonight, death for tomorrow, and
Armageddon by the weekend. This could be the end of life as we know it"

Cold steel, surgical dissection of memories lost to plague
Lay to waste the newly spawned
Our existence here has been dead and gone
Blood drenched nihilistic slaves, iniquity guides their path
Furthest point from purity reached to death
We're free...at last!!!
Once surreal dreams came true, smothered in a slumber unknown
Caustic, blinding, bleeding, light, choke a last breath and die
Exiled to a prison wall of death, placed by the hand of fate
The madness of oppression onset, insight has now been plagued
Counter creature now exposed, beast of madness and loss
Blood drenched nihilistic slaves, iniquity guides their path
Incessant depletion of life, loss becomes our way
Negativity carries us on and shall carry our carcass away
Bleeding, dreaming, conceding to crush ourselves
Lose regard for self-worth, fear no pain or wrath
Extract yourself
For all the bleeding, dreaming, conceding to crush ourselves
Lose regard for self-worth, fear no pain or wrath
Extract yourself corruption of our vision, blinding indecision
A black interpretation of our souls
Last expression, vast introspection yields a dissection of my soul
Cold steel, surgical dissection of memories lost to plague
Lay to waste the newly spawned
Our existence here has been dead and gone
Furthest point from purity reached to death
We're free...at last!!!
Track Name: The Optimist
"Life sucks, and then you die"

Here lies our fate, a bleakly stained disgrace
A cross between two worlds of liberty and hate
Nothing is forgone, we'll never see the dawn
Accept the consequence and kill the optimist
Banished, feel the scream, end of dreams
All is lost, all is lost...
indiscreetly bludgeoning the motion of our former selves
Subtlety has been erased, anarchy's in it's place
Gods have fallen, hate is calling, witness the fall of enlightened souls
Follow that instinctual urge, satanic freedom, Hell on Earth
Suppressed feeling you've had since birth
Is ripping from beneath your skin
Abomination you've held within
Awakening, to a world without restriction
Freedom, escape the land of pain
Solution, sights set on suicide, eternity lies in question
Life is nothing but a failed intention
Silencing, erasing the voice of reason
Victimize, execute the pure of soul
Ecstasy is born in the blood of revenge
Horrify the weak, a reflection of themselves
indiscreetly bludgeoning the motion of our former selves
Subtlety has been erased, anarchy's in it's place
Gods have fallen, hate is calling, witness the fall of enlightened souls
Follow that instinctual urge, satanic freedom, Hell on Earth
Suppressed feeling you've had since birth
Is ripping from beneath your skin
Abomination you've held within
Track Name: Salvage What's Left
"I want to kill everyone, Satan is good, Satan is our pal..."

Seething, inbreeding, ignorant, believing liars...salvage
Seething, inbreeding the fear of independence
Inbreeding, feeding a cult of false reverence
Anything we've conceived is everything but pure
Tainted by a conscience that's groping for a cure
Spiritual salvage, we claw for what we can
Look above to man-made hope to perish in the end
Anything that we've conceived is everything but pure...
Mindless beliefs, fat fucks led like pigs to the slaughter
Misuses free will and cry for all man's sin
Forfeit all hope, in god we trust to take it away
Salvage what's left, truth defies definition
Within blasphemy exists the voice of reason
Following through these lies of misdirection
My command of hate cannot be extinguished, deny my prophecy?
You place your death in fiction!
Anything we've conceived is everything but pure
Tainted by a conscience that's groping for a cure
Spiritual salvage, we claw for what we can
Look above to man-made hope to perish in the end
Real truth lies beyond reason, we will never understand
Track Name: Tug of War Intestines
"Rivers of gore, rivers of gore...ah hahahahah!"

Driving my automobile, watch out for that moose
Ramming it head on, turn over in a ditch
Nearly fatal blast, left me paralyzed
In my hospital room I'm waiting for the family
Children left unattended, they just want to chop my up
They are both laughing as my guts are strewn across the floor
Hackeysack heart and monkey in the middle liver
Hot potato pancreas, these are games with my guts!
Kick-ball kidneys, leap-frog lungs, soccer stomachs
Tennis ball tongues, tug of war intestines
Volleyball, baseball, and shot-put with my head
Testicle golfing, they're 15 under par, sanguine sports
Tug of war, my grandchildren do adore
Tug of war intestines
Track Name: Affirmation of Hatred
[For Tony (RIP)--a true testament to the pleasures of heroin]

Bleed tears down for dead and gone, explain this tragedy
Injected dose of suicide, cleanse the self of worldly being
Destination lost in life, death now has a name
A trial of mortality ends, we have ourselves to blame
Walk softly in our crossing paths through concealed destiny
Lost regard for life or law results in tragedy
Everyone dies here, arise to kill another day
Affirmation for my hatred for mortality
I long to live another age, to experience what we can not
And see beyond the years without corruption or uncertainty
We'll enter a pure realm beyond
Affirmation of my hatred, trespass against me
Conflicting paths of judgments passed result in tragedy
Walk softly in our crossing paths through concealed destiny
Lost regard for life, I destroy all I see
Thinking universal thoughts, not those tainted by deceit
A new realm beyond the wall of life, our degeneration has no meaning
It shall come and we shall rot like those tainted by deceit
Walking bags of piss and shit will have yourselves to blame
Building dreams on nightmares, you won't trespass against me
Steaming blood and stinking souls, at least a time that all is clear
As we struggle onward through this death
Expire without meeting our true selves
The masses cling to fallacy without the courage to feeling another way
It shall come and we shall rot like those tainted by deceit
Walking bags of piss and shit will have yourselves to blame
Track Name: Enslavement
The hand on power thrives on the backs of slaves
The minds of millions suppressed and pushed into their graves
Into their graves...
Children wander, with removed eyes led to worship and told the lies
Bred in enslavement, born in servitude we'll take anything we need of you
Mankind exists in slavery - a value placed on expectancy
No hope, suppress what you feel - give in and follow what you fear
There must be another way!! Not a value on expectancy
No hope, suppress what you feel - give in and follow what you fear
Mankind exists in slavery - another governs reality
Dismiss your dreams as a lie - enslaved, disgraced you will die
Asleep sense fleeing, drawn towards the light that is fading
Wake up to an end of reason, blind faith guides the path you are leading
As on our sorrow bleeds on blood and fear they feed
Repent, accept fallacy, deny the truth...you're free
Constantly entertaining delusion, delusion of our freedom
A better way, another day, another dawn, another age, another slave
Track Name: Merrie Melody
"Does blood turn you on?
It does more than turn me on, it makes me cum!
And more than the sight of it, I love the taste of it, the taste of hot, freshly killed blood!"

I hate Roadrunner, why can't Wiley Coyote win
Cartoons, make me angry, why can't Sylvester eat Tweety

Saturday morning, roll out of bed
long to see Bugs Bunny lose his head
Bugs lying headless, a gory scene, Elmer would be happy as little kids scream!!!
Tom became elated, standing over Jerry's body mutilated
tears filled the kids eyes seeing Jerry's carcass, sodomized

I hate Roadrunner, why can't Wiley Coyote win
Cartoons, make me angry, why can't Sylvester eat Tweety

Saturday morning, roll out of bed
long to see Bugs Bunny lose his head
Bugs lying headless, a gory scene, Elmer would be happy as little kids scream!!!
Tom became elated, standing over Jerry's body mutilated
tears filled the kids eyes seeing Jerry's carcass, sodomized

Areeba, Areeba Speedy's dead meata
Track Name: Pool of Stool
"Condone first degree murder! Advocate cannibalism! Eat shit!"

Pool of Stool
I slipped and fell into a manhole, I discovered I was knee-deep in doo-doo
A wave of turds swept me away, floating away with poop and pee
To a solid waste management plant
Here I sit, with the shit - here I be, with the pee
Pool of Stool
How can anybody stand the smell
A two hundred megaton fart bomb from Hell
Diarrhea and vomit too, I float around in whatever you spew
My nostril hairs are singed from the aroma of human dump
Here I sit, with the shit - here I be, with the pee
Mouthfuls of slop, my tongue starts to swell
In the sewer my body is rashing
Tread logs, tread logs, tread logs, tread logs
The current's too strong, turds, piss, and scum
Are spinning and making me dizzy
Swallowed by turds, a wallowed by turds, swallowed by turds, swallowed by turds
AHHHHHHH!!! Oh fucking no!!!!!
