The Skinless death machine embodies and amplifies the hardest-hitting hallmarks of US death metal. Powerful vocals punch through churning guitar crunch in what is the band's finest work to-date. Featuring the stellar production work of Neil Kernon (Cannibal Corpse, Judas Priest, Nevermore) and powerhouse drumming of John Longstreth (Origin, Angel Corpse), FSTS has escalated Skinless' musical mania to an untouchable new apex.

Track Name: The Front Line of Sanity
Now my friend
We stand at the end
We've failed to find
The way out
The falling of messiahs and raising of funds
Is a procession of liars
Thieves and wrongs
The new order of the land is to live in fear
Now decide
Where you stand
Look to the edges of earth
It's barren land
The falling of messiahs
And raising of funds
Is a procession of liars
Thieves and wrongs
The new order of the land is to live in fear
Now decide
An altered form is coming from the crux of the human soul
The front line of sanity is changing for the worst
We can't return, we can't advance
We're stuck in perpetual doom
A parade of horribles has come into town
Grabs you from below and pulls you straight down
Come down, inside leave it to a fool to try and hide
The front line of sanity is changing for the worst
An altered form is coming from the crux of the human soul
The front line of sanity is changing for the worst
It's all too real when you can't feel we're in pain
The new order of the land is to live in fear
Now my friend
We stand at the end
We've failed to find the way out
This is not a passing movement, our cultures soon to fall
Seeing, being, bleeding is believing
We have had to end our lives
The time has come to stand
What is and will forever be nothing
The front line of sanity is changing for the worst
Grabs you from below, it pulls you down
Track Name: Escalate Discord
Undo the psalms to fulfill your minds craving to bleed
Fail to serve them
Serpents of time wait to stifle the lives you breed
We'll dissolve them, solve the problem for them
Revival of the wicket
I exist between awareness and sleep
Where your life falls means nothing to me
I've come to cut your life down at the knees
And you'll fall in a heap
Wondering what has brought you here
I crossed the line
I've come to cut your life down
With just a couple of swings the rest of us will go on
I've come to solve your problem
Undo the psalms to fulfill your minds craving to bleed
Fail to serve them
Serpents of time wait to stifle the lives you breed
We'll dissolve them, solve the problem for them
Accidents happen every day, this one will leave you completely unmade
Do you believe that all is lost?
Do you believe that you will be saved?
And you will feel everything, you're eyes roll back
Demons take you by the hand
Accidents happen every day this, one will leave you completely unmade
Bring this quarrel to a new level, a place we shouldn't be but can't avoid
You'll be unmade, you should have never come
It's about corrective action for mother nature's mistake
I've heard the calling
I've seen the dead
I've listened to every evil voice in my head
I won't stop until you're dead
Track Name: Deathwork
Find a better way to die, fashion in the end in the likeness of the start
If it could only present itself in a way we could understand
The code cannot break, we will only hate
What we can't attain is an exercise in never ending pain
If we can hate, we must feel? Deathwork begins as we sow the seeds
We'll only know one way, one fate to live out everyday
Experience is just a game for us to hate and hate again
The need for what who and when? Nothing, nothing and nothing again
Triumph. Deathwork. No Resolve. The way it must be, now and forever
The code cannot break, we will only hate
What we can't attain becomes an exercise in never ending pain
Track Name: A False Sense of Security
[Instrumental]
Track Name: From Sacrifice to Survival
Beyond control, we are falling, out of control, there's nothing left
From sacrifice, to survival
The harvest is over, yet we are not saved
All have failed, its not what we've lost it's what we've made
Seasons change as do our perceptions
This cannot be our reflection
Diplomacy has been tried, it failed
Peace is nothing but a fairy tale
Bloodshed and war
The natural state of humanity
Peace is a dream that cannot be achieved, a lie, false sense of security
Grab your rifle and put down the signs
Hide your family and head for the front line
From sacrifice, to survival
It's the unfortunate but ever persistent state of affairs
The government and media market murder for a living
The worse things get the more profitable it becomes
Every drop of blood spills equals a significant financial gain
Discover and admit defeat to realize you are nothing but a change in ways
Life beyond needs, from sacrifice
The only thing we can hope for is survival
The only thing we can hope for, from sacrifice to survival
Track Name: Battle Perpetual Will
Massive insurrection, idealistic mutilation
A battle like we've never seen
Far beyond chemical warfare
The battle is fought within our minds
A passion for conquest and plague
Psychological war, fought on uncharted lands
Zealots have taken control, they want to murder everyone of us
Battle perpetual will, far greater then any holy war
Through dimensions that can't be won
A battle like we've never seen
Disparity between our souls
Zealots have taken control, destroying our way of life
Calling upon unseen forces
Obeying calls from unheard voices
Dimensions are conquered one at a time
Predetermined to take control
Zealots have taken control, they want to murder everyone of us
Are you willing to die for your cause?
The decision is made for you
Battle of perpetual will, far greater then any holy war
Calling upon, unseen forces
Obeying calls from unheard voices
Disparity between our souls
Zealots have taken control, destroying our way of life
Calling upon unseen forces
Obeying calls from unheard voices
Battle of perpetual will
Track Name: Miscreant
Vertigo is the leading force of will, as many paths as its forced to fulfill
Billions of combinations to make them be, a billion more to set them free
Take misfortune it stayed the same today, another way to make the day fade
away
Cast down abnormality, instead of seeing what makes them be
Sectioned lies end, truth be told as lines bend
A pretension fails to meet an end, Miscreant, what you know ends
What's been mistaken as an erratic being becomes a means for salvation
Prayer for a new day, a loss that sends us all away
A misconception that continues tragically
A fading hope that they will finally see
A kind of vision that will always be, far exceeding their false security
Track Name: Dead Conscience
To be named, we've come to the flames, to seek a judgment, to tell a fortune
It's hard to change, you cannot get away, the further you run the quicker it
finds you
Seeds in seeds to be, the past is now and the future's gone, still trying to
figure out what went wrong
A ritual to be burned by flames, a plea for peace and a prophecy to fulfill
We build our live upon a legacy of lies, the past is now and the future's
gone
Creation myth, we should all be dead, I always dreamed I would see this day
Relax and watch the world fade away
Guilt is a plague and it must be destroyed, suffer because we cannot change
Cower and hide, from things in your mind? Pick yourself out of that corner
and fight
We struggle on, fighting against instinct, we've fought for so long
Instinct is not truth, steps away from taking it back
With few words, or none at all unravel the threads, prepare for the fall
A circle is made with no points on all sides, deciding the truth and
directions we'll find
Guilt is a plague and it must be destroyed, suffer because we can not change
Cower and hide, from things in your mind? Pick yourself out of that corner
and fight
Seeds in seeds to be, we build our lives upon a legacy of lies
Destiny is completely ethereal, far away but close to the flames
I walk the earth, but my conscience is dead
Track Name: Don't Risk Infection
You can't dodge the subject, are you infected now?
Mathematics and theology don't belong in the same sentence
I'll do fucking cannonballs into repulsion while you live your life
Trying to put your feet down in the middle of the ocean
Give up, there's no control
Today is the last day you should push the wheel
Which grinds your mind to oblivion until it fits the mold
Don't risk infection, save yourself now, gather all you've learned and
forget it all
Now I'll go and capture dead souls, extinguish their flames and fuel the
plague
Will away those boundaries, acceptance of what's told, I'll go and capture
dead souls
Will away those boundaries, doing what you're told, I'll go and capture dead
souls
Don't risk infection, save yourself now, gather all you've learned, and
forget it all
You can't dodge the subject, are you infected now?
Mathematics and theology don't belong in the same sentence
I'll do fucking cannonballs into repulsion while you live your life
Trying to put your feet down in the middle of the ocean
Give up, there's no control
Will away those boundaries, acceptance of what's told, I'll go and capture
dead souls
Will away those boundaries, doing what you're told, I'll go and capture dead
souls
