Devin Cartelli It's been almost two years since Dogma, some really good friends of mine, released Indigenous. I've watched them progress so much, both as a band and as people. This album is heavily relatable and my favorite album of 2016 by far, do not sleep on this band. Favorite track: Pretty.

Track Name: Mute
I have a thought
and it eats me inside
I have these cables tied
to my throat and my mute mind
well I can't speak
and I'll never feel alive
again, when will it end
it's always one word
and it chokes me to death
and skin hides my mouth
squeezing me closer to the edge
again again again
place nails in my head
and leave me for dead
Track Name: Swamp
I am no longer man
I am just simply waste
a shell of my regret
just taking up space
when I look in the mirror
all I see is regret
I would look so much nicer
fucking hanging from my neck

I've never hated something quite how I've hated myself
instead of malice it's a numbing disdain
but even this doesn't do anything to take from the pain
all I want is to put a fucking gun up to my brain

so dig my skin and break my bones
for all I know it's ending this
spinning and sucking my blood from my pores
tearing flesh eating through all thats left
putting and end to the stress
and to hell with the rest

burdened me, through
just let me forget
the pain I have caused
to those I held close
and the bitch of it all
is I am the worst
of the scum that I hate

so helpless
a man lost in himself
a martyr for a sense of death
and under crushing stress
and worthless and hurt
these leeches and sucking
steal life from me
don't pretend like you know worse

will you listen to me now
when I'm screaming
I'm screaming so loud
before I start ti seep below
dig a hole and tell this gun to
blow
Track Name: Pretty
the signs
the make me anxious
won't you mind
switching places

my heads' reeling
from this empty feeling
that I get when I look at you
I'll admit I had my involvement
but I had so much more to lose

I'm embracing
these pretty faces
all so I can find my place
among the wasted
(pretty faces pretty faces
on my mind tonight)

don't you know
you take me places
won't you mind
switching faces

my filthy little predilection
won't you fit my sutures
heal this fiction
I'll admit I've had equivalent
well I never meant much to you

I'm embracing
these pretty faces
all so I can find my place
among the wasted
(pretty faces pretty faces
on my mind tonight)
Track Name: Worm
grinding stomach and two heartbeats
swallowed the pills but it eats the same
I am rotting from the inside out
I can feel it flowing

my friend you're killing me

stale taste and dry mouth
slithering tongue in it's rotted house
bleed me dry suck my soul up
oh tiny worm, when will you have enough

breath in again
exhale again

bleed me dry suck my soul up
oh tiny worm, when will you have enough
cause I can't bleed but I can try
yes I will fill and mend
till this empty heart will finally beat again

I am breaking now
but it feels the same
as every other living breathing pain
I can plead and I can't try
but i won't feed again
till this earthen thing has filled it's whole

my friend you've killed me

bleed me dry suck my soul up
oh tiny worm, when will you have enough
cause I can't bleed but I can try
yes I will fill and mend
till this empty heart will finally beat again

bled me dry now my heart is gone
oh tiny worm, I think that you have had your fun
no more pain, or feign that I have tried
now watch, as my body dies
Track Name: Message
drag a blade through my eyes
filter out the lies
and despite all my efforts
I don't feel alive
in sickness and in death
I feel fucking pain in my chest

so I put you on a pedestal
and drag my knuckles
searching my legs for strength
not to buckle
I'm useless and I'm weak
this fallacy on repeat

a basket case man
neurotic from narcotics
and hoping I'm a man

I'm useless and washed up
a low down fuck
but the truth
is that I love this pain
it's the only way to stay sane

so tell me that I'm crazy
take this knife from my hand
another nail in my head
to make me forget
all the lies I see in your eyes
I know I know I know
my words have no worth
and I can't see anymore

so sew my mouth shut
leave me dead on the street
with nothing but this
mute message to speak
