Track Name: Denihilist
meanwhile, on the homefront
history is taught to repeat itself
repeat, delete
ignorance understated, understood
overlooked
the cloak of denial never endures
the aftermath, the wake
defile, the circumstance of truth
always in form
the most alive are lost
ignorance understated, understood
overlooked
circumstances change
components drift
discontent for your roots
these roots undo
rip out the pages
write something new
ignorance understated
understood, overlooked
blind eye ever-open
distaste in your look
lie, lie, waiting to die, lie
spreading your lies, lie
quick to deny, thrive
keeps you alive
liar
rewriting history
reveal the mystery
afraid that the truth
will wake us all up
history repeats itself . . .
Track Name: Blinders
closed minds
no sight for sorry eyes
bite your tongue
no questions asked
and i'm not to question pride and truth
and i'm not to question bride and groom
closed minds
no sight for sorry eyes
bite your tongue
not a single question asked
you only think as absolute
words pollute
and i'm not to question pride and truth
and i'm not to question bride and groom
i try to speak but i can only say
opinions force fed everyday
the veil has been lifted
the blinders removed
crawl back to your bishop
crawl back to your pew
Track Name: Concrete Tongue
nothing will break the way that you fucking think
changing your mind every other week
spewing your thoughts all over the street
not one single word worthy to repeat
tear apart your words
tear a hole
in your fucking safety net
nothing will catch you now
you're high off all your regret
shows over, take a bow
your opinions were always weak
using a concrete tongue to speak
choking on asphalt is what you deserve
voice your opinions on the fucking curb
Track Name: Tar and Blindness
and it won't sink into
but i watch and wait all the same
with ears full of tar and god
there is no room for feel or vain speech
wretched viewing
with your jaded eyes
gnawing, chewing
you've grown to despise
what first made you
open up to this
what convinced you
that you had found bliss?
and when the tar and blindness
is replaced with clarity
i'll smile and shake my head
as your small lungs flood
and when it rears its filthy head
i'll be there
and when it pours out of you
i'll be there too
wretched viewing
with your jaded eyes
gnawing, chewing
you've grown to despise
what first made you
open up to this
what convinced you
that you had found bliss?
and when the tar and blindness
is replaced with clarity
i'll smile and shake my head
as your lungs flood
and there is no place for this
only tar is left
and the rats will swarm to you
like the god that you are
you could fill
lakes with what
comes from your
eyes
Track Name: Teeth
a sense of real is lost
not to be regained
without the hands to change
what has been forged
and there was more than i thought
and its so much worse that i could
do nothing but its done and i'm
left
no hands or teeth
and i'm beginning to accept the way it happened
without hands or teeth
drained to the last drop
Track Name: Faith Resigned
my faith resigned, when i declined, offered lies
upward eyes, and empty skies, hollow lives
sick reprise, of desperate cries, no reply
no path
defined
blind
is what you see reality?
no time
decide
rise
is what you hear the sound of fear?
twisting, turning
learning and burning
reaching, grasping –
for something that’s lasting.
no path
defined
blind
is what you see reality?
no time
decide
rise
you pray and kneel, for something real
my faith
resigned.
Track Name: An Exit
glances of a lost feeling
gauze up from the floor
gauge my eyes, break my legs
forget everything i said
carrying on with this mountain of
iron and steel, wipe it clean
glass reiteration
mental reverberation
personal baptism
creating an exit
Track Name: A Crawl
i've become the one i hated
i am numb to this disgrace
a stumble, a crawl
marks the last page
if you stare into the mirror
you will see only yourself
you cannot see the rest of them
what's left of you is rectitude
you can only see yourself
Track Name: Of Descent
i've been at war so long the cross-hair rarely leaves the mirror
but when it does i'm not met with surprise, but anguish
such blunder and greed
your hate brings soil to seed
such delusion, conscience
festering with fear of descent
your mind wilts
the impending guilt
such blunder and greed
your hate brings soil
to seed
such delusion, conscience
festering with fear of descent
blind to filth and swine
eyes choose not to see
lost in my own mind
forget the world’s diseased
created your own mirage – comfortable in shit
distorted, vacant visage – surroundings reflected
called to save the herd, stirring hate and nerves
safe from consequence, think you’re heaven sent?
condemn the ones who sin, can’t stop the fate of men
they're only flesh and bone, your fate is yours alone
they don’t value life
protest with a knife
Track Name: Humility // Humanity
infected mind, sees differently
please just go blind
tear off your skin, just blood and meat
you're just like him
(look the same beneath)
it's tradition, that's your excuse
for racism
we'll look the same, covered in flames, burn off the flesh
(set the world ablaze)
and the difference between you and me
my acceptance of other human beings
there's no patience for your bigotry
my resistance – where's the humility?
(where's the humanity?)
you say things changed
they're still the same
still slaves, no chains
built by sick brains
i hope you ignore this
till the day it's too late
white guilt, white shame
fuck that, no blame
you just can't ignore this
ignorance is not bliss
natural resolve
die or
evolve
Track Name: Chemical Reign
it starts a fire, with a the desire
to heal
it crawls inside you and lives beside you until
you can't address it, you just suppress it with pills
the process repeats, until you're drained of all will
pill pop
don't stop
kill all
free will
fertilize your brain
gray matter into nothing
these chemicals, they reign
ruling over substance
you seek
pill pop
don't stop
kill all
free will
