Track Name: Center Stage
INTRO 1
Hypnotized
By the allure
Blinded
The marquee to assure

VERSE 1
Seduced by a serpent
Putrid behind the eyes
Surrendered to an animal
Its last breath leads to our demise

A city burned by angels
Misplaced hubris supreme
Atop the titans ashes
The birth now a lost dream

CHORUS 1
The airwaves are being held
Against their will
The sunset hedge funds take
the vapid scene downhill
Homogenized into
digestible pills
Shoved down your throat, while
diversity is killed

INTRO 2
Every corner we turn
They've followed
Impulse of vision
Mirrored and swallowed

VERSE 2
A fixed race
Has already conspired
The winner crowned
before the pistol fires

A song already written
Pluck the majors string
Me and the outsiders
kings down with one swing

CHORUS 2
The airwaves are being held
Against their will
The sunset hedge funds take
the vapid scene downhill
Homogenized into
digestible pills
Shoved down your throat, while
diversity is killed

BRIDGE
If rather be forgotten
I'd rather be a failure
I'd rarer fall short
Than be anything but true
Track Name: Run From the Dead
VERSE 1
Betrayal a symptom of weakness
Your reality hidden from the truth
inability to accept
What you didn't know in youth

PRECHORUS 1
You lie to run from the dead
Nails scratched across the floor hiding instead

CHORUS 1
Lying to yourself
To justify your cancer
A rust incubated
While you hide from the answer

I want to kill everything
Leave it lost behind
Leave it burning in my wake
Nothing left to remind

VERSE 2
Infidelity learned
Justification taught
The war is lost
When your lies are bought

PRECHORUS 2
Don't come looking for me
When the world begins to fall into the sea

CHORUS 2
Nailed to a fucking cross
My desire bleeding out with each loss
Lost faith a martyr underneath
Pooling on the ground beneath

I want to kill everything
Leave it lost behind
Everything burns in my wake
There's nothing left to remind

END
Ive nailed myself to a cross
A growth formed in another loss
Sodom and Gamorrah burns before me
The symptoms die as we fall into the sea
Track Name: Fast Lies
VERSE 1
In the twilight of my adolescence
What a coward I've become
Lost deep inside of my will
Pushing while I become numb

I don't want to see a light
My hunger comes from inside
I am darkness I continue to feed
Pinned down by by another's pride

PRE CHORUS
A hatred for the world around me
A cage holding me to the ground
On a wheel in a maze before me
And the post I am bound

CHORUS
I am the fucking wolf
Hiding quietly in the dark
I will burn down this world
And bury it in my wake

VERSE 2
I am of this time
I continue to climb
I swim against this tide
Taking everything denied

I am the now generation
Fuck the wannabe famous spawn
Everything at my disposal
No lack of comprehension

BRIDGE REFRAIN
In the shadows
I carved my fucking life
Carry my torch
I found my lost insight
The same fast lies
Bullshit I have explored
A new way through
To find the same reward

Slowly being suffocated
Underneath there is no escape
The world keeps burning around me
While I sleep off another denial

No signs just your own demise
In darkness I am baptized
The steps to dethrone I devise
Impulse that continues to feed

BRIDGE REFRAIN
In the shadows
I carved my fucking life
Carry my torch
I found my lost insight
The same fast lies
Bullshit I have explored
A new way through
To find the same reward
Track Name: Nightmare 6
VERSE 1
And so it begins
Another means to an end
The wolves of the earth
Take everything you're worth
Coalesce in repression
Blood stained walls confine
Step out of reason
As sanity unwinds

Rotating above the fire
Hypnotized into submission
Medicated to obey
Ignore all intuition
Cast out what you envy
On the Forcers of Conscience
My absolute intention
Is the people's intervention

CHORUS
I had a dream last night,
As the moon stood watch.
The skyline set ablaze
The sun lost and misplaced

POST CHORUS
I'll come back one day
Back into what I used to be
If I ever was, but for now
Plan my killing spree

BRIDGE
Carry on for the carrion of our sins
Deceiving ourself makes us complete within
Left to the will of an unseen force
A desolate empire with no remorse

Watch me burn
Feel the crash
The pain is real
Hold up your flag

VERSE 2
And so it began
A hiding place when we ran
These repressive walls confine
They crumble as I unwind

The fucking wolves
Have taken everything from me
My absolute intention
Is the people's intervention

CHORUS 2
I had a dream last night
As the moon stood watch
The skyline set ablaze
The sun lost in a rage
Track Name: Release
VERSE
My own desecration
Gravity ripping at me
Tries to change what I am
Tears the fabric of my reality

This modern modest proposal
The famine claims control
My flesh picks up the slack
Torn from my fucking back

CHORUS
A land of opportunity
For those born with opportunities
We are of the free
A predesigned template told to call it unity

Cultivated for someone else's plan
bred by the invisible hand
This race that can not be undone
The biggest lie that someone else has won

VERSE 2
A disparity plagues my view
A separation of church and my wake
Bi lateral country dividers
Either choice is a fucking mistake

Shaped to fit a mechanism
The illusion of choice
For the 99 out if a hundred
You die without a voice

BRIDGE
A secret I must not know
Esoteric words hidden below
why the fuck do I work
And live this life of hell

Fuck this world of lies
Until success is decriminalized
This life rips every piece
Death the only release
Track Name: Eclipse
INTRO
Bring back the revolution
A desire burning in the streets
A ghost constructed in your head
Flags to ashes in the name of belief

A lynch mob marching united
Under the guise of freedom
Idealism blinded
Lets hang the non believers

VERSE
A short fix to a long problem
To deplete not to sustain
Exploit the finite commodity
Open up the arteries and dry out the veins

Convere on divergent cultures
Pulling in opposite directions
Pillage and deprive in the name of nationality

PRECHORUS
Close your eyes and fall asleep
A chance to finally see
Float further into the deep
This time we will never wake up

CHORUS
Black cross eclipses
Invert to mirror your soul
Increase your dosage
As hunger takes control

INTRO 2
Misguided attempts to climb
Shake the world until you drop
Change right in front of my eyes
In your destruction I stop

Obliterate to see what's left
An end to see creation
Lost in chaotic relapse
Cyclical starvation

VERSE 2
A short fix to a long problem
To deplete not to sustain
Exploit the finite commodity
Open up the arteries and dry out the veins

Converge on divergent cultures
Pulling in opposite directions
Pillage and deprive in the name of nationality

PRECHORUS 2
Close your eyes and fall asleep
A chance to finally see
Float further into the deep
This time we will never wake up

CHORUS 2
A black cross eclipses
Invert to mirror your soul
Increase your dosage
As hunger takes control

END
A new frame, built atop the previous
Atrocities, compacted for obedience
Half the country remains voiceless
A tomb built to encase progress
Track Name: The First Cell
VERSE
A Fabrication of genetic fear
A character flaw that we built upon
An attempt at balancing
The inequalities that spawn

You create your personal demise
On who you think you should be
An entanglement you design
Inclination burns in the debris

PRE-CHORUS
If everything just falls
Who notices when I bring down the walls
There's nothing left to confess
The cycle separates nothing from the rest

CHORUS
amalgamation of archaic beliefs
Stitched and altered by thieves
The inception birthed from the streets
Taken flipped and used to deplete
Across existence we all share hell
We've burned in the fire from the first cell
The first breath sealed our damnation
global progressive suffocation

VERSE 2
The entity that feeds on our demise
An apple given to uncloak the disguise
There is a hell Ive been to its shores
To its depths I have explored
Discussed religion with Milton
Lost Piers at my immortality
Drinks with Heironymous and Dante
Lost in a tragic comedy

BRIDGE
There is a hell for everyone
Carved from your own fucking shame
fear brings life to the flames
Live your pinned down by chains

LEAD TO SOLO
human nature to look for balance
In a world destroyed by malice


END
Is it evil to enable or deprive
Better to teach or deny
Should we enlighten or enslave
Allow a future not engraved
Track Name: Occupy
Occupy With MC Gusto

VERSE
Unity in outrage
A single cause for a million voices
99 out of a hundred
Will never share one choice

PRECHORUS
Common ground in the point of collapse
A boiling point found in the collective
Not a generation but a rate of motion
The will of the majority infected

CHORUS
A Promise of Potential
Never means anything to me
Falling short the eventual reality

VERSE 2
Trapped in perpetual
Struggle to be the empowered
Atomic desires
Devour the will of a coward

PRECHORUS 2
A shared will in the moment of destruction
The limits exposed on dissection
Be the catalyst for insurrection
The top prevails while the rest die of infection

CHORUS
A Promise of Potential
Never means anything to me
Falling short the eventual reality

BRIDGE
The rotting flesh of a million
Left to spoil in the stagnant air
To the streets in masks
Molotovs carried by the welfare

VERSE
Unity in outrage
A single cause for a million voices
99 out of a hundred
Will never share one choice

PRECHORUS
Common ground in the point of collapse
A boiling point found in the collective
Not a generation but a rate of motion
The will of the majority infected

CHORUS
A Promise of Potential
Never means anything to me
Falling short the eventual reality

BRIDGE
Bought and sold like livestock
Disreguard the world beyond your desk
Wealth doesn't make you safe
To the backlash of the grotesque

END
Deafening silence slowly grows
Solace outside of the comforts they know
No more lies, used to subdue and bound
A torch to burn this, whole world to the ground
Track Name: Blood Stained Hands
INTRO 1
Gas wafting between buildings
As poison fills your lungs
The darkness overtakes
Hidden thoughts you become

Hide my grave within the woods
In a place you’ll never find
Redemption my last breath
The betrayal left behind

VERSE 1
Crouched among giants
Sky scrape to reincarnate
Frames built upon graves
Destined crimes to recommit

CHORUS 1
Below the surface your cult
Subterranean your only consult
The nameless science of success
Hollow eyes lost consciousness

INTRO 2
Education’s not to ambission
The defiles of tradition
Unable to stray from greed
Corruption will always lead

faceless remain among us
Silent as you bleed out
demand without interference
Corruptions throughout

VERSE 2
Wither into society
fall further from yourself
Abandon what you want to be
Engulfed in desire for wealth
We are slaves to greed

CHORUS 1
Below the surface your cult
Subterranean your only consult
The secrets of success
Robots without consciousness

END
Inversion of direction
For perversion of desire
Identity lost for the whole
So burn your dreams in the fire

END CHORUS
You’re never getting out of this place
There is no where to go
No one listens to you plea
Fuck you and your decree

With Blood stained hands
Next of kin dig your grave
There's no use fighting
Live your life as a slave


VERY END
Stand among the redwoods
The moon no longer shines
Systematic evacuation
Defined by adverse design
Track Name: Yesterday (Venom Lab Cover)
VERSE 1
Yesterday
I erupted from the fray
Broke the chain
Malignant tone feels more humane

PRE-CHORUS
Don't you see that
We are only fates disguise
Suffering
Paint the future with our demise

CHORUS
Waking up, taking shape
Sacrifice, my escape

POST-CHORUS
Building dreams, hollow goals
Lessons learned, lost control

VERSE 2
Look at me
I have never been the same\
Isolated
Wrap myself in familiar shame

PRE-CHORUS 2
Animals
Fight among ourselves agin\
Jealous world
Crave the status of mannequins

CHORUS 2
Falling back, never win
Judgment day, closing in

POST CHORUS 2
Clip my wings, take this life
Breath of fury, thread the knife

BRIDGE
From these cold dead hands\
There is no end as the world expands\
Rip my mortality from my hands\
Sacrifice to your demands

VERSE 3
Guaranteed
To break you down further than before\
Grind the bone
Assimilate yourself in this war

PRE-CHORUS 3\
Take my lead
Close your eyes as you burn alive\
Resurrection
Begin the life that you were deprived

CHORUS 3
Load your gun, shoot your blanks
Falling short, within the ranks

POST CHORUS 3
Almost nowhere, we walk away
Cycled failure, another day
