Mortal Clay 03:16
Fleeting, what once was mine A sacrilegious sacrifice slowing to a flat line Dueling bonds, consequential conflict Broken by the differences that define us romantics Bound by lock and key Disrupting thee And all I see Are ashes and misery Now the fire burns out Dusk, the dust of lost love In madness, aggression The fire burns out The fuel has run out Unpaid dues Lost connections Forever rued
Voices call, the struggle of right and wrong They tell me to strike, and they go on and on The mallet slams, a final judgment What good are they? My son, they're heaven sent Fear Not, Want Not Dare not by lost in salvation Fear Not, Want Not Go on and talk, give the reason-- --You cannot sleep, your tongue dries to stone Lost in its lies, in a truth it only knows Mockery of speeches, from blood, it will leech Preserve it now, for my son, it will not keep You're trusting in your ruling I'm trusting in my dram When the bottle is empty, It ain't worth a damn
Echo Chamber 02:45
Trust in meaning, call it believing But please, call it what you will An empty feeling, your mind is reeling It's lost in its own bullshit Your thoughts and your feelings Keep you and yours divided Your consciousness and programs Echo your own lies The passing of the power Between those and what you know Barrel through your mind like A beckoning echo When the crowds of people have the same decaying voice as you Give up hope for thinking of yourself as an arbiter of truth Freedom costs your being free On our backs, unsaddled seats Power treats empowered beings It’s your world, it’s not for me
Spiral 01:32
Locusts 04:00
Darkness, the illusion of where I've roamed Tempted by a place that I once called home Removed from the shrine of the locust's nest Flung from the cache down from your neck Remorse -- in the undertow Realization -- and now I know The promise of abstination Broken by your temptation Greed has poisoned our souls and corrupted our minds Barricaded the world with hate in our eyes Cattle of the machine, to be wasted life But it's not for me, and it's not for mine Light, not found Snuffing the depths of your head, of your hands, and your heart Walk, the path Abolish the presence of this hell Walk, the path Abolish the premise of a wall With unfettered notions of who's to blame I know that your conscience still echoes my name.
With the groans of the dying Countrymen with nothing gained Left their lungs black and broken In eternity enslaved We've been enslaved By the word of our forefathers On a chosen path Will you stand or will you crumble? In this Western mass. It's their blueprint, not mine When you're young, til you die We are all on this structured Fucking way of life We've been enslaved Not to be swayed to obey Not to be tamed to obey Not to be sold by the masters Force fed the will to the masses Burn their rule at the pyre Forged by obedient fire
Insanarchy 04:46
Blessed light shine down on me Deliver me from apathy Cast down, a perfect stone Given this world to thrive alone Your flesh and disease The broken hold: Insanarchy I've nothing to hide, I've nothing to say You've given me life and I fear that you'll take it away I'm biding my time In total dismay You've promised me pleasure but totally cloaked me in pain Love lusts for a restful place Promised by a dying grace Sanctuary in an unsafe place Now there’s nothing left..
