Track Name: Dead on arrival
DEAD ON ARRIVAL


Stand dead and bloated, When nothing is goaded, All hope is corroded
En masse and faceless, Increasingly brainless, Where pain becomes painless
Stand dead and bloated, When nothing is goaded, All hope is corroded
En masse and faceless, Increasingly brainless, Where pain becomes painless
But who’s to tell ?

The bricks and the mortar of submissive whims
Through thickened black water, the joke’s wearing thin
The insult to injury without an end
Cult of extremities, submerged within

Inside out and backwards, keep running the marathon
Lights out in the darkness-Autopilot mode

The leash and the blindfold where decadence grins
Locked in its stronghold where compulsion wins
The fear we are worshipping to save face again
Cult of extremities, submerged within

Dead on arrival, autopilots dead on arrival
Dead on arrival, autopilots dead on arrival

Inside out and backwards, keep running the marathon
Lights out in the darkness-Autopilot mode
Track Name: No passion to the grind
NO PASSION TO THE GRIND



One submissive circle giving all
Not one raising a voice from within
Over the din of his own crowd
And the burning question remains
Where have all the individuals gone ?
new swarms do not sell out
they ‘buy in’ to the myth


STILL
Not loud enough
STILL
Not fast enough
STILL
Not tech enough

But where’s the passion ?
No passion to the grind


Ape whats come before and nothing more
Why battle to be heard
Above an ocean of distorted influence
Tip the hat with your own voice / move forward
Pass the baton or shine the light ahead


Step by step assimilation
Until a house of mirrors remain
Or riff by riff regeneration
Roll and check sound direct from the source
Track Name: Fail me not
FAIL ME NOT


Eyes to see, fail me not

Pay no attention yet water that seed
Groundless assumptions so behind the times
Curse them in safety yet smile as they pass

The gnawing like hunger to fulfil its need
All open season no reason nor rhyme
Courting the cesspool yet harbour the crass

The storage of hatred in arrogance breeds
No surprise towing the ignorant line
Remodel viewpoints an arduous task

We all bleed the same colour
We all share the same fate

No movement beyond this old skin thick vision
Refuse to acknowledge were one and the same
Prejudice flying thick and fast from all sides

To run with the pack, the most easy decision
Incite the divide and still fan the flames
Raise double standards and swim in its tide

Dictate the dogma then hurl the derision
Pass down the judgement and hand out the blame
Jingoists ` blindfold the misuse of pride


We all bleed the same colour
We all share the same fate


Ears to hear, fail me not

Close your mind/ Close your eyes/ Close your heart
And throw the first stone
Stand that stance/ Run in packs/ Mind is blank
Syphoned from hate clones
Track Name: Shadow saviours
SHADOW SAVIOURS


Throw more bait
Go chase faith
Crawling forever more
Blank mind states
Love these chains
Stay on your knees today

Walking the line of fire
All just to be a martyr
This death wish desire
Hurdles the juxtapose
Bring that blood to boil
Illuminates your foil
In shadow saviours
You vomit this bile

Hide these stains
Scrub the guilt
Keep up appearances
Who made who?
Cleanse the pain
Bowing your life away

Towing the sheperd line
And all is doing fine
Blindfolded, running blind
Into the devils arms
Not all just black and white
Good and evil, wrong or right
Choosing fear over love
You vomit this bile

Bowing your life away
Stay on your knees today
Living your life afraid

Your living god is denied
Track Name: Hand over fist
HAND OVER FIST


Head straight to the source…


Scape goat the fervour, Hand over fist
Sweet ignorant bliss
Cut throat to a cleaver, Hand over fist
The longest list whittled down one by one

Logical, safety first habituate
Sacred held separate
Inside out, lost yet found, all is none
The archaic reverberates

Scape goat the fervour, Hand over fist
Sweet ignorant bliss
Cut throat to a cleaver, Hand over fist
The upside dismissed

Intuit Resonance deep inside
Lucid Symmetry broken down
Left and right, Embrace the paradox
Reconcile the opposites

Boiling over in the shadow of reason they burn

Day in, day out
Night in, night out
Week in, week out
Month in, Month out
Year in, Year out
Never starting, never ending
Fuck that rigmarole


Still we persist going hand over fist
Head over heels and hand over fist
The more we resist, going hand over fist
Feet in mouth and hand over fist

Scape goat the fervour, Hand over fist
Sweet ignorant bliss
Cut throat to a cleaver, Hand over fist
The upside dismissed
Track Name: Deadweight undertow
DEADWEIGHT UNDERTOW


Cast adrift when land hope is low
A deadweight capsized upon fathomless depths
Followed the hollow into the undertow
Against the current, blind and barely afloat

Husk of a former vessel
In uncharted waters
Call of the sirens
A shipwreck waiting to happen
Drowning inside a treacherous tide


Not even this armada of song
Can secure a safe passage to the shore

Wretchedness in waves
Engulfed by the ebb
In the arms of Poseidon
This Lockjaw silence
These Abyssal zones that blacken

No turning back

Deadweight undertow
Taint these blue eyes black



Going under
farther than ever before
Search the darkness to shed some light
Track Name: Home
HOME



Try to ride this tide
Breathe deep and let this pass
Imbalanced inside
Mirrored eyes shine true
Motion fatigue kills
Homesick to the very gills
Close quartered transit grind
No handbrake freight train mind

Outward diplomat spent
Resentment come to a head
Collision imminent
Resolve put to the test

Burn it down then return to zero
Burn it down

Try to sleep this off
Exhale the dull stomach pains
Forward motion we cant stop
Holding on all in vain
Onward through consistent blur
Bitter peace spits the slur
One long road without relent
Mind and body, warped and bent

Bring this all down
Burn it all down
Take it all down
Break it all down
returning home
no shame to walk away
Live to slay another day
Admit to mistakes
I’m coming home
Track Name: losing limbs
LOSING LIMBS

Undertone the bitter especially in times of grace
Social salamander cut your nose to spite their face
Malignant relations always on the verge of collapse
These threats of amputation that never took place
( it never took place )

Stave off them open lines, suture up the past
A cowards way to ligature, forever losing limbs
( I just cannot face the mistake )
A glutton for punishment every time the smoke clears

Severe all ties to the lies that stick inside your mind
Like shit to a blanket, so soon to fuckin ' prolapse

Crawling back to the liar's pack in blissful denial
Can't change tack to counter act a worldview defiled
( some one hear this last cry for help )
On ice wearing ever thin, forever losing limbs

Lost.... Backed into a corner.... Bound

Undertone the bitter especially in times of grace
Social salamander cut your nose to spite their face
Malignant relations always on the verge of collapse
These threats of amputation that never took place
( it never took place )
Track Name: Smoke and mirrors
SMOKE AND MIRRORS



Disguise
Swift about face
Prone to make the same mistakes
Muscle memory aches
Time and again
Burnt by this same old flame
Just another glutton for pain


Grandstand above the smoke and mirrors
Throw the spotlight inside
In hindsight the vision so much clearer
Lessons learnt in mind at all times
Disguise


As we give chase
To a vice that took our place
The price of illusions taste
Time and again
The enemy that we befriend
Filtered through a blinkered lens


Attempt to fool all with the smoke and mirrors
Perfect in every way
Cast the lime light up upon the favoured
And mask the rotten soil that you tend
That you tend

Completely entranced by disambiguation
Fraudulent distorted reflections
The new reality


Grandstand above the smoke and mirrors
Throw the spotlight inside
In hindsight the vision that much clearer
Lessons learnt in mind at all times
At all times
Track Name: My war
MY WAR


My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

You don't want to see me live
You don't want me to give
'cause you're one of them

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

I might not know what a friend is
All I know is what you're not
'cause you're one of them

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

I have a prediction, it lives in my brain
It's with me every day, it drives me insane
I feel it in my heart, that if I has a gun
I feel it in my heart, I'd wanna kill some
I feel it in my heart, the end will come
Come on!!

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

Tell me that I'm wrong
Try to sing me your ego song
You're one of them

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

My war.
Track Name: Primrose path
PRIMROSE PATH


Po faced whores drain your force
Leech true light, rob you blind
Drag you down where they crawl

They build you up to tear you down
You've let this boil now cast it out
Why feed on fear just go to ground

From the next day forward...

With our enemies were waltzing hand in hand across the land
Backsteppin' the dark fantastic on the primrose path

Gift horse lied out its mouth
Blood shot eyes, mind goes south
Back down there on all fours

Point them out curse their name
Aim this hate shift the blame
Naught but one and the same

Pull this day backwards...

Round and round we thrust
This hedonistic crux
In not one we trust
Is this vicious cycle how we roll ?

With our enemies were waltzing hand in hand across the land
Backsteppin' the dark fantastic on the primrose path
To the tune of the Moribund the job gets done
Backsteppin' the dark fantastic on the primrose path
