Track Name: Once Again
Once again I find myself staring down the road we took, wondering where we all went wrong,
life will take you by surprise, bad choices dress in sweet disguise yet still you let yourself get strung along

Maybe the answer to seek, isn’t the one to please, anything worthwhile takes more than 1 2 3s,
do you remember the best things in life are free, happiness doesn’t come from a fucking bottle,
Look back to before man could fuck the brain, sweet little medicines for all not just insane,
chemical intrusion for self-inflicted pain, happiness doesn’t come from a fucking pill box,

Content contempt, dollars save your lament, buy away pain, the consumer mindset
Tell me are we free? Tell me are we free?

Once again I find myself staring down the road we took, wondering where we all went wrong,
life will take you by surprise, bad choices dress in sweet disguise yet still you let yourself get strung along

Meeting a quota a goal for a number of guys, filling up all their holes to bury the ones inside,
Indiscriminate when it’s them that they despise, happiness doesn’t come from fucking everyone,
Shopping for anything for reasons none can say, perhaps it’s got something to do with how the world is made, looking realistically this shit is in your veins, happiness doesn’t come from a fucking bank,

Content contempt, dollars save your lament, buy away pain, the consumer mindset
Tell me are we free? Tell me are we free?

Once again I find myself staring down the road we took, wondering where we all went wrong,
life will take you by surprise, bad choices dress in sweet disguise yet still you let yourself get strung along
Once again I find myself staring down the road we took, wondering where we all went wrong,

Content contempt, dollars save your lament, buy away pain, the consumer mindset
Tell me are we free? Tell me are we free?
Content contempt, dollars save your lament, buy away pain, the consumer mindset
Tell me are we free? Tell me are we free?
Track Name: On Your Way Out
I guess this is what I get for treading with closed eyes, catching you in my bed,
ending us with another guy, going on blaming frenzy fun, but the fault is mine alone,
Good luck bitch, I'll see you around,
Got better things to do than watch you try to run me into the ground,
Better luck with your next victim but I won't let you drag me down,
Good luck bitch, I'll see you around,
I'd be lying to claim surprise, when that little voice yelled you'd cause our demise,
You're a screw loose and a loose screw, kind of surprised, you never set fire to the room,
You're a wild rabid dog and I'm getting out while I can, go be someone else's problem, gonna find me some stable land,
I'd be lying to claim surprise, when that little voice said you'd be our demise,
Good luck bitch, I'll see you around,
Got better things to do than watch you try to run me into the ground,
Better luck with your next victim but I won't let you drag me down,
Good luck bitch, I'll see you around,

I'd be lying to claim surprise, when that little voice said you'd be our demise,
Going on blaming frenzy fun, but the fault is mine alone, for ever thinking that you were the one
Good luck bitch, I'll see you around,
Got better things to do than watch you try to run me into the ground,
Better luck with your next victim but I won't let you drag me down,
Good luck bitch, I'll see you around,
Good luck bitch, I'll see you around,
Got better things to do than watch you try to run me into the ground,
Better luck with your next victim but I won't let you drag me down,
Good luck bitch, I'll see you around,
Track Name: Overtime
Converting hours into dollars, breaking my back daily, livin’ the life I was raised to lead,
enslaved for a minimum term, duped by alluring desires from objects I just don’t need,
Overlords with a power complex, pseudo-superiorities bark orders seeping contempt,
My tongue has more bite marks than a gazelle in a lion’s den, destinations of desire plaguing my thoughts

I don’t know how much more I can take, I don’t deserve to be treated like this
Superficial supervising sloths slyly stalling staff progress with duplicity, repairing damage of incompetence, frustrating but it’s everywhere, if I don’t then I’m to blame, my gaze burning holes through the clock during eternal last hour, feels like it’ll never end
Fuck this, I quit, your money isn’t worth this shit, take your job and stick it up your ass
The time has come and I explode, like a bad doctor the death of my patience gets me a one way ticket, one way ticket, out the door
Fuck this I quit, your money isn’t worth this shit, take your job and stick it up your ass,
Broke the shackles, Monday no longer kills, but there’s just one more thing, how the fuck am I gonna pay the bills
Track Name: Denial
Deny, deny

Start runnin’ fast as you can, grab a shovel, get to diggin’ up the land,
make a hole and bury your head in the sand, they are on their way, details that you can’t stand,
they come marchin’ in with an eager face, flee and they will know that you are a disgrace,
they can be obnoxious as sin, and you cannot bare to let them win,
Fact is they’re here to stay, facts laugh as you run away,
facts know that you’re playin’ dead, facts show what’s in your head,

Hide as much as you want to, they can smell your fear and they will find you,
Cover your face but they are still there, yell and scream but they will just stand firm and stare,
Life can be a bitch, and they know how to hurt, ignore them and get kicked down to the dirt,
They make a powerful friend, but you neglect them to your own detriment,

Fact is they’re here to stay, facts laugh as you run away,
facts know that you’re playin’ dead, facts show what’s in your head,

Fact is they’re here to stay, facts laugh as you run away,
facts know that you’re playin’ dead, facts show what’s in your head,
Fact is they’re here to stay, facts laugh as you run away,
facts know that you’re playin’ dead, facts show what’s in your head,

Wake up reality’s callin’,
Wake up your savior’s have fallen,
How much longer till you shear your woolen eyes,
Track Name: Hysterical
It's not the end of the world, I don't really know what to say,
you think this is normal for a girl, but I don't want to live this way,
the slightest offense blown out of the water, exaggerate response for an accident,
simple mistakes punished by torture, for your misunderstandings,
This is not what I want to say but you're far too hysterical,
you accept nothing but perfection, be the change you wish to see,
You act like nitroglycerin ready to explode at the slightest knock,
off the rails coz something doesn't fit in, with your master plans you've locked in,
This is not what I want to say but you're far too hysterical,
you accept nothing but perfection, be the change you wish to see,
This is not what I want to say but you're far too hysterical,
you accept nothing but perfection, be the change you wish to see,
This is not what I want to say but you're far too hysterical,
you accept nothing but perfection, be the change you wish to see,
This is not what I want to say but you're far too hysterical,
you accept nothing but perfection, be the change you wish to see,
Track Name: Nocturnal
Tell me why that you believe in everything that can be seen, and when it's time to leave you forget what's invisible makes you unclean, it's always what you don't note that takes away your life,
who'd suspect what you love most to be the one holding the knife, pin everything on the world,
the pain of accepting blame, pierces worse than a poison spear, causes some to go insane,
Lives of diurnal beings drives heeding,
Nocturnal, insomniac, conscript labour, against their nature,
Time flows beyond the veil of existence, history preaches man’s ignorance yet arrogance breeds resistance, incompetence, easier to let the mindless peons walk through their dull existences without challenging their status quo, they've grown up plugged into the mind control device and worship what the box tells them, how dare I tell them that their electronic god is wrong,
Lives of diurnal beings drives heeding,
Nocturnal, insomniac, conscript labour, against their nature,
Nocturnal, insomniac, conscript labour, against their nature,
The face of the earth spouting telltale signs, internal reveal of breaking a gaze,
I trust only trusts ineptitude to shine, blindfolded marching through an astucious maze,
Lives of diurnal beings drives heeding,
Nocturnal, insomniac, conscript labour, against their nature,
Nocturnal, insomniac, conscript labour, against their nature,
Nocturnal, insomniac, conscript labour, against their nature,
Nocturnal, insomniac, conscript labour, against their nature,
Track Name: Cloaked
As the sun slips awkwardly away, apparitions ascend from the fog-hidden lake,
wraiths with a purpose return to serve the black dog,
searching amongst the masses for another soul to take,
Welcoming the solace she finds amongst her walls, a world far away from Earth in which to be alone,
smothered tears seem to be a more reliable friend, with each dark day, brings her closer to the end,
As the sun slips awkwardly away, apparitions ascend from the fog-hidden lake,
wraiths with a purpose return to serve the black dog,
searching amongst the masses for another soul to take,
At a busy station she waits in winters bite, seeking refuge from herself awaiting the next train,
invisible to passing eyes, unnoticed with no disguise, unheard pleading to the sky to take away her pain,
As the sun slips awkwardly away, apparitions ascend from the fog-hidden lake,
wraiths with a purpose return to serve the black dog,
searching amongst the masses for another soul to take,
Graffiti covered metal screaming along the track, epiphany strikes and she’s no longer shy,
She rises, moves towards the edge with this axiom in mind, and leaps to hug the vehicle,
fulfilling her wish to die
Track Name: The Drink
Culturally referred dependence, sweet potation,
Drowning on land,
Drowning on land,
Doting on the need and breaking for occasions,
like days that end with "Y" and moons salutation,
trapped in familiar daze, companion count waning,
Culturally referred dependence,
Drowning on land,
Drowning on land,
Sacrificed a career which took a lifetime to build for the price of a beer,
in a life unfulfilled sacrificed a career which took a lifetime to build,
Borrowed dimes to last the weeks but like old times the poison speaks, piling up the I.O.Us, crisis beckons,
Drowning on land,
Drowning on land,
Drowning on land,
Drowning on land,
Culturally referred dependence
Track Name: Shades Of Green
The strangest day of my fucking life began with breakfast,
Ungodly meddling from the professionals, motherfuckers playing god for a dollar,
Take off your white coats and have a look at what you fuckers are doing,
Took a bite of an apple getting ready for work, tongue started to bleed, apple went berserk,
Grew tiny legs, ran off down the street, damn apple bit me, what in the fuck?!
see, you think i'm crazy, drivin' to work and there was a giant broccoli, nearly crash the car swerving as they tried to crush me, they tried to crush me,
We don't need your toxic greens, genetically killer seeds, modified dreams, don't sell your children's souls, don't poison the world,
you can't sail the river Styx on a briefcase of money attached to your dick,
At the office completin' my tasks,
called up stairs for somethin' bizarre,
top of the stairs I turn to my left,
I see feet on the ground behind chiefs desk,
I get a bit closer he’s covered by a coat, uncover his face he's got beans down his throat,
Locked in a gaze, what's life to become, what the fucks gone wrong, I think it's time to run,
We don't need your toxic greens, genetically killer seeds, modified dreams, don't sell your children's souls, don't poison the world,
you can't sail the river Styx on a briefcase of money attached to your dick,
How can this be, all tied up in knots, choked by bean sprouts, I think I need to stop, I thought they were harmless, I’m tired and sore as 6 foot vegetables gearing up for war,
as I back away I feel they're here to stay, banana boulders, corn cannons, karate carrots, bouncing' broccolis, ragin' red onions, grenade grapes, arsenal of apples, tomahawking tomatoes, rocket launching radishes, kamikaze cabbages, backed into a corner, without a voice, subject to capture, why the fuck have we lost our choice?

We don't need your toxic greens, genetically killer seeds, modified dreams, don't sell your children's souls, don't poison the world,
you can't sail the river Styx on a briefcase of money attached to your dick,
We don't need your toxic greens, genetically killer seeds, modified dreams, modified dreams,
we don't need your toxic greens, genetically killer seeds, we don't need your toxic greens
Track Name: Isn't It
Convenient, Isn't it, how none of us have to do shit,
just fork over cash as you roll on by, ingesting venom whilst waiting to die,
sickening, isn't it, profiting off self-made addicts, sponge bath for the brain,
all of a sudden the world’s in pain,
We know a clown named Ronald, he's on the loose on a killing spree,
looking for folk to kill and fondle, robbing every motherfucker that he can see,
he’s rather fond of livers, he likes to eat them raw, he'll rip out your kidneys then go out looking for more, he likes to play hacky sack with your heart,
he'll root any tart,
(He fucked my girlfriend) Screwed her good,
(She loves that clown), Like no one should,
(Ronald goes to town), but Ronald the psycho killer clown never works alone,
he’s got a military friend in the zone,

Convenient, Isn't it, how none of us have to do shit,
just fork over cash as you roll on by, ingesting venom whilst waiting to die,
sickening, isn't it, profiting off self-made addicts, sponge bath for the brain,
all of a sudden the world’s in pain,

Ronald knows a substance dealing toucan he met sailing with a crazy captain,
Ronald needs to sink his jagged teeth and razor-sharp claws into every human,
He wants to scalp and skull fuck
(He wants to scalp and skull fuck)
Until you can't think anymore, once he gets you he knows you're stuck and he's gonna make you his whore, the evil Satan clown needs to be stopped,
He wears priest robes from hell, with his zombie horde he'll rise to the top,
Every victim cast under his spell, he might be the anti-christ
Convenient, Isn't it, how none of us have to do shit,
just fork over cash as you roll on by, ingesting venom whilst waiting to die,
sickening, isn't it, profiting off self-made addicts, sponge bath for the brain,
all of a sudden the world’s in pain,

Track Name: Hit
I need that hit, when I get that shit, that’s it, I’m bouncin’ off walls,
Addicted it’s in my head, Fuck what they said, soon I’ll be dead,
I wanna leave but it’s captured me, It mercilessly controls my life,
Every day I try to walk away, it reels me back and takes my damn pay,


Distant and lifeless my thoughts are direct, bound by confusion in an unclear state,
twitching and shaking, I need that break, down the hatch, this is the catch,
let it run through my veins and take over my brain,
I need that hit, when I get that shit, that’s it, I’m bouncin’ off walls,
Addicted it’s in my head, Fuck what they said, soon I’ll be dead,
I wanna leave but it’s captured me, It mercilessly controls my life,
Every day I try to walk away, it reels me back and takes my damn pay,

Luminous thoughts, free as they come, embracing energy drawn, from invited toxic substance, how much more can my heart take, I’ve waited long enough, before I wake, escorted away, locked in my cage with red and blue flashing,
I need that hit, when I get that shit, that’s it, I’m bouncin’ off walls,
Addicted it’s in my head, Fuck what they said, soon I’ll be dead,
I wanna leave but it’s captured me, It mercilessly controls my life,
Every day I try to walk away, it reels me back and takes my damn pay,
I need that hit, when I get that shit, that’s it, I’m bouncin’ off walls,
Addicted it’s in my head, Fuck what they said, soon I’ll be dead,
I wanna leave but it’s captured me, It mercilessly controls my life,
Every day I try to walk away, it reels me back and takes my damn pay
Track Name: System Of Conformity
Condemned in name and public reputation, for crimes of my due to poor association, but I, I will find, will find the way, shadows of time darken our paths that we tread, yet cannot cool the burning desire to, to break down, break down the walls, obsessed, enthralled by promises of freedom, we stand and fight to be who we choose, when, we die, we die ourselves,
We won’t be a part of your system of conformity, we won’t obey orders of the majority, dictations dictated by the mindless mob, lead us to ruination, lead us to devastation
We won’t consume the force-fed hypocrisy, they think they’re right but spew their own stupidity, and how, how can we, love idiocy, why they crave control and domination, why must we be subject to their suffocation, ignorance may be, but slavery is not a birth right, white knights with forked tongues, spineless, have disgraced us, under their masks they are all just faceless, they rule, with false, false dignity,
We won’t be a part of your system of conformity, we won’t obey orders of the majority, dictations dictated by the mindless mob, lead us to ruination, lead us to devastation
We won’t be a part of your system of conformity, we won’t obey orders of the majority, dictations dictated by the mindless mob, lead us to ruination, lead us to devastation,
