Take it or leave it Take it or leave Bring your words, and I will leave mine You won't even take it to mind Take it or leave it You came to me, to speak my truth but You only want what's at the root of your own bullshit I won't lie to confirm your view I gave you direction You took it, said I'm done I gave you direction You left it, said I won Fuck you're stubborn Why come to me if you won't see Why come to me if you don't agree Why come to me if you won't see Don't come to me, I'll say I'm done Take it or leave it You're so empty, I'll fill your cup But you don't care, grow the fuck up You're so empty, I'll fill your cup But you don't care, grow the fuck up You've made your bed Now, I'll watch you sleep You've made your bed Now, I'll watch you sleep Wake up you have to learn Next time don't chose to burn Wake up, you have to learn Take control, it's none of my concern

Picking up our feet, we've grown a stampede Running through the streets like zombies They can hear you breathing Running can you hide Mindless Swarms Hoards beating down your doors Mindless Swarms Always hungry for more Always running Can't escape When you never sleep Can't escape the end They're all coming after me Left for dead At the dawn of this dying day Let me in Cus I have no other way Feast on me in the nightmare of my dreams Stay awake for they never sleep Picking up our feet, we've grown a stampede Running through the streets like zombies They can hear you breathing Running can you hide Begging to survive One eye open, losing rope And one eye open losing Keep your legs moving If you want a way out Don't look back Don't look down Keep moving on Sleeplessness apocalypse

Cut in half Split wide open Cracked the skull Your heart is frozen Mazes of memories Lost in thought Pull me out to breathe I can't see I lost all my self control Mazes of memories Lost in thought Pull me out to breathe Let me speak I feel weak from disbelief Conversation, gives me no relief Lying through their fucking teeth Don't remind me Can't rely Cus you're so fucking sick No reply I don't need this shit Left behind leave my mind Instantly shattering into nothingness Head splitting knowledge Eating me alive Frozen solid Breaking deeply You can't solve it Pretending, stop Split shift reaction Written all over your fucking face Like a deer in my head lights You sing that song every night Cut in half Split wide open Cracked the skull Your heart is frozen

Poison spewing out from my own mouth Sleep tight Wake up, repeat Fuck this cycle Pure overindulgence I can't stop Wasted Drowning my thoughts with liquid venom My insides resent me and all my vices But this elixir sums up all my tools and devices My insides resent me and all my vices But this elixir sums up all my devices Call a medic, pull me out of the abyss This is my SOS Call a medic, pull me out of my own piss This is my last chance Hate to ruin your night or even worse your life But you don't know what it feels like You don't know where I've been Scraped across, the ice is thin Wearing my feelings on my chin I can get that out with a glass of gin I mumble in my sleep Cus the conversations on repeat My whiskey I take it neat Puking in my sheets What's wrong with my head What's wrong Lights go darker, balance falters Breathing slows down, hit by black Pull myself out from this, self-hate defines me, show me bliss I'll fucking beat this, dig deep inside Now find the backbone and hold on tight Identify the culprit, it looks so fucking sad It's time to end this, shut it down Pull yourself together man, I don't need this as my brand I can't believe I've been a slave unto this potion I don't need this, shut it down

I can't be alone anymore Been feeling cold and ignored I can't be alone anymore My body's grown enough scars Watching you through your open window Makes me feel just like I'm right at home Make believe reality, soon you'll see Right behind, I watch your eyes, so I'm free I'm so free You're mine You can't flee Watching always You're not alone Always surrounding you Always You smell so good you taste even better If i had it my way you'd be here forever You're not alone anymore You're not alone You can't leave me or I you You can't You can't leave

It burns bright now Looking back Reflections lie It's a mess All that you see Tear it from me Just a small fee MONSTER Think I don't know All just for show Reap what you sow You've FALTERED Wearing your tangled veil of blindness Choking on dying roses I can't be what you want I just want you to burn Terrorise my goddamn mind Rip innocence from my life Terrified, I'll say I'm fine Heartless veins will soon run dry Wearing your tangled veil of blindness Choking on dying roses Scorch this disease from my body Engulf your heart, love is rotting Burn Manipulate Try to berate Manipulate Try to castrate Scorch this disease from my body For you, this is just a hobby Come get close, closer to me I will make you bleed. Sink your teeth in Rip me limb from limb You're a vicious fucking beast But a coward I will not be devoured You sicken all of me Why don't you leave And never be seen Never be seen again

Hey I'm feeling lost today Which angle is my way I just know the ups and downs Go side to side then I stray Stray and stranded life, lie Abandoned once or twice Stray and stranded life, lie Once or twice, once or twice too much Dancing in this rotting carcass Spinning lost and I got no purpose Lethargic, is it getting worse? Yes Bleeding out in your side show circus A lonely desert man with a crutch My path is broken up The sun has burned my luck My path is broken up My compass gives no fuck My sense of direction sucks Growing mad It's so sad Answers in my eyes Rotting flesh Losing hope Fending of the flies Growing sad It's so mad Drowning, self despise Oasis! Oasis! Just my luck, proves its just a mirage This place is a fucking maze Left, right, who knows Empty gestures surround me No friends, just foes I just can't win One with pain Losing it Disconnect from this barren wasteland Losing it Losing it Lost it Decomposing Caught vultures circling The smell of death rising To the top, this is the end A desolate soul with no where to go A desperate heart with no home, it knows

It's not too late to let it go Before you're choking on the rope I thought we found a way out of this darkness When you keep crawling back When you keep crawling I see your hands are going cold Praying for a miracle It's not too late to let it go Before you're left here all alone Remember when I pulled your body from the ashes When you keep crawling back When you keep crawling back Contorted whispers inside your head Stirring the shadows you wish were dead Contorted whispers inside your head Wasted on memories, what's left unsaid The ghosts in your mind keep coming back Dirt is my bed, bury my head. Please save me from my worst enemy Its only me, its only me. Its all in my head, its all in my My broken mirrors ghost Holding on until i choke Dragging me along When its all said in done Will I have wasted my only run Dreading it alone I see the light but not in your eyes I'm begging you, please to survive I see the light but not in your eyes I can't wait for an end to this night I only tried to save your soul Your bodies frozen over cold

How you love the past When it's not coming back Everything never lasts But your heart's not made of glass You disappear in a broken mirror Crawling your way inside You wear a mask despite the facts We can see through your disguise Can't let go When the ropes tying you down Drowning as you fall Lost to the memories in the walls Just remember saving yourself isn't selfish at all Poisoned confessions You promised you'd just walk away Save yourself There's no bring back yesterday Save yourself Tragedy strikes Holding on to tombstones Holding on Don't let deaths shadow follow you Don't let the past come with too Be scared for the future, not the past Be grateful for what you have Drown your mind Leave it behind Move forward Leave it behind The past is a dark shadow The past is not your shadow Fuck

Fuck you Ripping your goddamn tongue out with my own teeth Gushing, I smile in your disbelief Can't scream for help or tell me to go to hell Oh it'll suit you well Hey, that pointless trek Regret is real Ripping your face off Reveals false truths I can't fucking help I can't help but hate you So long You're good for nothing waste of time You're a demon in disguise Though I'm not surprised I saw it coming with the evil in your eyes I won't let you make it out alive Here's my big surprise Todays the day you die

about

"If you have not had a jumping-off point for mathcore, this should be it. The God Awful Truth is a tasty dose of all that is great in the genre. Their sound is chaotic but without going Loony Tunes on the listener’s ears. It is still plenty frantic, but it has its slower sections that will still make one double-check those time signatures. Get mathy, get jazzy." MetalInjection.net

“Named after a Fear Before The March of Flames song, The God Awful Truth might be my nominee for 2020’s “breakout artist”. With noticeable influences from Dillinger and Daughters alike, their new album Memory Palace is one of the standout mathcore releases of the year and does everything you want from the genre. Angular squealing guitars, charismatic and frenzied vocal deliveries, unpredictable song structures and experimentation – there’s not much not to love.” HeavyBlogIsHeavy.com

"The trio's technical prowess is always evident throughout their material, but they never fail to keep things grounded with a focus on the catchiness factor of what they write." NoEcho.net

"It’s both cathartic and invigorating — the incessantly spiraling rhythms deliver simultaneous feelings of ominous mental strain and invigorating mental release. Listening feels like rushing headfirst into a churning storm cloud pockmarked by neon-colored lightning strikes." CapturedHowls.com

"...The God Awful Truth quickly manages to forge an identity of its own, creating a link between these influences by injecting its compositions with irresistible variations and passing in a flash of an ultra brutal breakdown to supersonic accelerations with a sense of jubilant frenzy, comparable to their labelmates, The Callous Daoboys. In short, an intense album of explosive mathcore from a young group to follow very very closely!" Eklektik-Rock.com
