"Asphyxiate" as written by Pete Murray, Jerry Oliviera, Neil Matthew Godfrey, Daniel Scott Ogden and Tyler Clark....
I see the things that you do
I see the people you screw
I see the world that you make
I see the mess you create
I see you contaminate
With your refusal to wait
A mouth that's dripping with greed
You destroy with your need
And there's nothing left
And there's nothing left

Same m.o.
Waste
Watch it grow


I see you bump into walls
I see you stand up and fall
I see you stretched out and dry
Under the new sun you fry
You stare directly ahead
To pull yourself from the red
You pull the rug from your feet
To glue the ends that you meet
And there's nothing left
And there's nothing left

Same m.o.
Waste
Watch it grow
Don't you fucking deprive me

You offer what you can't give
You take what once made you live
With steps you can not retrace
You need a past you erased
And there's nothing left
To this endless lie
Lie
Lie
Lie
Lie
Take it down

Same m.o.
Waste
Watch it grow
Don't you fucking deprive me

    General Commentthis song only appears on the import of their self-titled debut, as does the live version of "suck". they were going to add asphyxiate to the album at first, but later decided it did not exactly fit the overall sound on that cd so they left it as a b-side.
