Track Name: 1.946437743e-12
Whether standing to attention or slaving away (we’re slaving away)
Everyone makes the choice to become this way
Last bastion
Track Name: UGM-133
Dormant violence lies like cancerous cells
Where past sins remind us of future’s hell
Where the air strips blackened skin from bone
Under the mushroom cloud above your homes
Twisted tongues spit from the sons of atom
Our infatuation with destruction

In a noiseless flash
In the blink of an eye
You’re knocked off your feet as the sky turns white

Staring down at the cities remains
Walking through these empty streets
Run for cover as the hard rain falls
Awakened apocalypse is here to take us all

Mutually assured destruction
Our past fears
Resurrection
I want to hold oblivion in my hands
To touch beyond what I don’t understand
I want to hold oblivion in my hands
Hands, hands, hands

From the ocean into the ground
Buried in the ashes
Deafened by the sound
I want to hold oblivion in my hand
To touch beyond
What I don’t understand
Track Name: Panacea
With your religion in the crosshairs
They fire at your culture
What’s independence worth when all you face is surrender?

In this concentration camp
We live as victims of circumstance
When your dignity is the ultimate theft
The night air desecrates and waits with bated breath

What’s an early grave when life is death?
What is loss when you have nothing left?

Artillery lights the sky on fire
Artillery lights the sky on fire
Artillery lights the sky on fire

The only crime you share (is your name)
The only guilt you bare (is your fate)
The only crime you share (is your name)
The only guilt you bare

They discover the thin red line that divides the mad from the sane and the living from the dead

We are the worlds regret
The ones they chose to neglect
No care or shame
About ignoring our pleas at the gates
We are the worlds regret
The ones they chose to fucking neglect
No care or shame
About ignoring our pleas at the gate

We are the world’s
We are the world’s
We are the world’s
We are the world’s regret
Track Name: Kaleidoscope
Projecting self confidence
Using my eloquence I hope
To self preserve my passions
Are funded by mental self destruction

Reaching out for shining stars
That grow dimmer every day
I find myself giving more retaining less
I’m trapped here

Regretting regressing
Focusing on a fractured ambition
Dreams are becoming kaleidoscopic
Breaking up and distorted

I can’t see (I can’t see)
The point of (keeping myself)
Motivated (credible)
In this role (bending over backwards)
Fraudulently feeling content
But I can’t see (I can’t see)
The point of (keeping myself)
Motivated (credible)
In this role (bending over backwards)
Fraudulently feeling content

Forever paralysed
I’ve changed horizons
Far too many times
I’m sick of waiting for the future
Every step back confirms my concerns of failure
Track Name: A.T.D
Holy shit
The fucking mess you're in
You can't be serious
You know you're not the first

You can think what you like you can't make
Facts change because that's not how it works
You can think what you like you can't make
Facts change because that's not how it works

Holy shit,
The fucking mess you're in

You can think what you like you can't make
Facts change because that's not how it works
You can think what you like you can't make
Facts change because that's not how it works

Holy shit
The fucking mess you've created

Facts don't change because that's not how it works
Track Name: ...Can't Make Sense of the Censor
You’re safe wrapped up tight
In apathetic disbelief
Put your blood into words
Poison into arteries

Here now to insist
That you choke on the lead
To give up the morals
You don’t need
While they manipulate the weak
They manipulate the weak

The pasture will be flooded with blackened gold
Cut vital tendons let the titan fall
Yet this is all that we’ve been left with
Observed yet unassisted

You’re safe wrapped up tight
In apathetic disbelief
Put your blood into words
Poison into arteries

I can't make sense of the censor
I can't make sense of the censor

You rely on stained truth
Injected to your brain
The word of the digital god
Telling you who to hate

Vultures will prey on the ones who gave up
Believe what you see
Just how you want it to be
Committing murder just to get a bigger screen
Cockroaches wait their turn as they drown in the sea
Track Name: Polite Fiction
As the Earth turns upon its axis
A virus spreads
Passed the masses
Alliances fuelled by consumption
Monitory irrigators
Gaze from black towers
Down on a broken sea

Demolished for profit
Speak up, stand and deliver
Speak up, stand and deliver
Speak up, stand

As the water runs grey
In the regret of yesterday
Shrink and dissolve
Breaking the ground
To Ignite in flames
Now regression has a new name

The grass is always greener
When it's the colour of money
Now as the veins collapse
We live on lands that decay

Challenge the opinion

Speak up, stand and deliver

Always sold to the highest bidder
So what's enough?
Greed is the same as lust
Always sold to the highest bidder
So what's enough?
Greed is the same as lust

Extract the marrow from the bone sell it back
Now it‘s become the wonder that is black gold

Black (gold)
Black (gold)
Black (gold)
Black (gold)
