about

Anemia Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Anemia was a side-project of Skot Shaw from Chicago goth band, Leper, & former Broken Flesh (current In Darkest Dreams) vocalist, Ricky Puckett, on vocals. Due to the distance between Skot and Ricky (Skot in Chicago, Ricky in Oklahoma City), Anemia was solely a studio project. "Wither" was their only release. ... more

Track Name: Wither
Hear me O' Lord
For I am in distress
Let my cry for help
Reach your ear

My days they vanish like smoke
My bones burn like glowing embers
My heart withers away like grass
I mingle my drink with tears

Look down
Rebuild
Hear the groans of the destitute
And not despise their plea

Terrifying seraphic
Celestial sacrosanct
Devoid of you
I am counterfeit

Odious,
I am profoundly depraved
Vehemently desolate

Hollow transcendent empyrean
The yearning of my soul is dire
Breath of violent wind divine
Consecrated in sacred fire
Track Name: For You
Vapor and dust
A memory
A haunting dream
Unreality

A ring of brass
To hear my cry
Shadow of hope
Embracing

Tearing at my heart
Why won't it fade
Stabbing at my chest
Never goes away

I, I long for you
I wait for you
Only your touch
Can heal this cold

Frozen shadows fall
A field of gray
Memorizing
How did it get this way

Will I come to know
Joy so true
Quickly come
Heal me soon

I, I long for you
I wait for you
Only your touch
Can heal this cold

I long for you
I wait for you
Only your touch
Can heal this cold
Track Name: Nowhere Else But Down
The emptiness greets a shadows embrace
Whispers softly through darkness
Pain of memories left undone
Agony of words left unsaid

Father can you hear my prayers
Please set me free from despair
Watch the wither taking place in my heart

Cause there's nowhere else but down from here
And I cannot hear your voice, please speak to me again

Staring in silence at her grave
Reflecting back on the night it came
Death claimed her soul, she was lost
Horror reached in to claim my truth
Oh, my beloved one, I don't understand
How could you destroy our lives

In death, should I join you?
Then, can we be reconciled...

Cause I cannot take this pain in my heart
Father can you hear my prayers
Please set me free from my despair
Watch the wither taking place in my heart
Cause there's nowhere else but down from here
And I cannot hear your voice, please speak to me again

Speak to me again...
Track Name: Shadows
In the words of his mama, "He was my only son."
In the words of his sister, "He was on the run."
In the words of his girl, "How could it end this way?"
In the words of his daddy, "He never had much to say."

Goodbye Kathy and goodbye Mom, there's voices in my head
Angeldust and tortured dreams say I'd be better dead

You, you chased the shadows
Because your hopes and dreams have been lost to the night (x2)

Hey, Billy, did you hear the news?
Johnny's gone for good
They say his mama's all broke up
They found him in the woods
Kathy just couldn't understand
Sheriff, he just looked tired
Some will play and some will pay
And Johnny played with fire

Goodbye Kathy and goodbye Mom, there's voices in my head
Angeldust and tortured dreams say I'd be better dead

You, you chased the shadows
Because your hopes And dreams have been lost to the night (x2)

Johnny's dead and buried now out on the edge of town
Drove by his grave the other day, that's when the fear came down
I hate the night that took his life, but now it's haunting me
I may be young, may be confused, but I gotta be free

God, are you there, can you hear me now?
Show me how to cope
Lost in the dark on a dead end road
Please save me from myself

Oh Lord, you, you took the shadows
Took all my fears and doubt and brought me out of the night
Lord, you, you took the shadows
Took all my fears and doubt an brought me into the light

Lord, you, you take the shadows
You are my hope and love, you turned my darkness to light
Lord, you, you take the shadows
Took all my fears and doubt and brought me into the light
Track Name: Leave Me
Empty is all I am
Break the skin
Death come in
I cannot stand bleeding away

Bring me back to life
Surround me with light
Though I'm afraid
I want to come home

She turns the page reading the book she authored of her life
Confronted by so many regrets and
Heartache in her soul
Betrayal came, leaving her cold
She aches to end her strife
Just leave me be, the damage done, the pain taken toll

Leave me in solitude, one more thought I cannot bear
To all the pain I feel inside this season soon must end
The leaves are turning, cold and dread
A life distrought, darkness ascends
I feel the void, oh Lord, please mend these wounds

He turns the page reading the book he authored of his life
From day to day the rituals repeat, the emptiness of time
Can't understand, desolation, faith meets knife such is the state
Fallen humanity witnessing decline

Empty is all I am
Break the skin
Death come in

Leave me in solitude, one more thought I cannot bear
To all the pain I feel inside this season soon must end
The leaves are turning, cold and dread
A life distrought, darkness ascends
I feel the void, oh Lord, please mend these wounds

Deliver me, I need your love
Bring me back to life, oh Lord
Surround me with light
I'm afraid, and I want to come home

Don't leave me in despair
One more thought I cannot bear
To all the pain I feel inside
This season soon must end (2x)

Don't leave me in despair
One more thought I cannot bear...
Track Name: I'd Die
To sit in darkness holding remains
Of what was once my heart
I remember life, reduced to nothing
Infuriate me, yet, I come back for more

Alone with nightmares
Killing you, killing me
Feel the pull every direction
When it comes to her I am so weak

I'd die to hold you
I live to see you
I long to feel you
Killing you, killing me, killing you

I got lost in her eyes
The moon stole a kiss
I almost died, she returned it
I can still hear her breathing
Even when she is gone
I can still hear her calling
From the dusk to the dawn

I'd die to hold you
I live to see you
I long to feel you
Killing you, killing me, killing you

Bathe in the writhing
Flames of my heart
Witness my misery
Still in the dark

I'd die to hold you
I live to see you
I long to feel you
Killing you, killing me, killing you

I've died to hold you
I've died to see you
I've died to feel you
Killing you, killing me
Killing you, killing me
Killing you...
Track Name: Whatever You Say
What would you think - If you saw
All of the things - I am capable of
What would you think - if I said
I was afraid - and I was full of doubt

What would you say - if you saw
All of the filth - that I've been thinking of
What would you say - if I said
I didn't care what you were telling me

It's just that I don't seem to know what I ought to believe

Whatever you say - is what I want to see
Whatever you say - is what I want to believe
Whatever you say - is what I want to see
Whatever you say - is what I want to believe

What would you think - if I said
I wasn't sure - if I was hearing you
What would you think - if I said
I was starting to lean towards your compassion

So can you help me to know what I ought to believe?

Whatever you say - is what I want to see
Whatever you say - is what I want to believe
Whatever you say - is what I want to see
Whatever you say - is what I want to believe

Teach me to separate
The oppression of men from the grace of God
Track Name: White Throne
A time shall come to pass
The journey will end at last
Fear and trembling - the great unknown

The earth and sky fled from sight
And with no place to hide,
Behold the rising of the dead

The day will come
God among us
End of sorrows before the great white throne

The books will be opened wide
As well as the Book of Life
Judgment hath commensed,

As sorrow gives birth to dread
For the grave must give up the dead
Subjected to finality

The day will come
God among us
Sorrows end before the great white throne

Souls in despair lost to deception
Come forth out of darkness, be made new in his light.
We all shall stand before the great white throne
Humanity subjected to its finality
Drink of the blood, for the blood is the life
Death and the Grave swallowed up in eternity

The day will come
God among us
Sorrows will end before the great white throne
Track Name: At The End of All Things
Here, at the end of all my time
What is this that I now find?

All I've come to believe is false
There is no punishment waiting

Wisdom and folly
Are the only
Standard by which I am judged

Broken, broken
I find I simply did not kneel...
