  • Sloth is the enemy of greatness
    Reflection a scalpel to my mind.
    We strive as you leisurely criticize
    A free ride until you find that you've dug your own grave
    Lie by lie

    [Chorus]
    Just a running mouth
    Poison words you throw about
    Drag you to your end
    The number six
    Leviathan.

    You've dug your own grave (with your spite)
    You've dug your own grave (lie by lie)
    A cancer that needs to be cut out
    Sweet slander the razor to your throat
    Trim the fat
    A loose end to be tied up and cast aside
    Left to find that you've dug your own grave.

    [Chorus]

    Poison words you throw about
    Drag you to your end
    The number six
    Leviathan.

    A relentless imposition by a self-fulfilling travesty
    From one who is just rotting there
    In slut's wool and zero history

    Aesthetic condemning
    Erratic condescending

    An empty barrel always makes the most noise
    And I begin to feel my hands, my hands around your throat
    Your throat, erratic condescending

    You've dug your own grave (with your spite)
    You've dug your own grave (lie by lie)

    [Chorus]

    Poison words you throw about
    Drag you to your end
    The number six
    Leviathan.

    You've dug your own grave
    You've dug your own grave
    The number six
    Leviathan
    You've dug your own grave (a running mouth)
    You've dug your own grave (with poison words)
    You've dug your own grave (will be your end)
    The number six
