1821.
Deliver Disappointment
Let your wounds heal,
And don't replace it with an evil.
'Cause...
That's what those demons expect.
...
1822.
What Is It About?
If it isn't about the money,
Getting thin and that isn't funny...
Then,
What is it about?
...
1823.

Your flavored love.
And if you give it I will make it,

No one survives to completely resist,
To thrive in places...
Where an abundance of ignorance sits.
Since many are conditioned to base realities,
...
1830.
