The False Dilemma Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Tower (7:16)
From flesh and bone I raise these stones higher, higher
Armoured halls and unbreakable walls, bow before my tower

Serpent sky

Do you not see how the worship me? They polish my face that’s engraved in stone
Hear me now, my proclamation - ruler of lands, desert sands

Doves intertwine

Behold the eye!
Shower of light tears through the sky
Bearing omens for the blind
Decimate stains of perfection
Recreate beauty of nothing
No stones, no walls will protect
No herd of serfs will prevent
Your false reality will crumble away
Omission of warnings
Truth lies in death

Every brick of your so called truth
Cemented in by subjective lies
In security free from light
Insecurity fear of life
Slave to your servants and peers
"Mine", you say, ha ha
They, as you, obey my eye
Assisting in your demise

Your threats mean nothing, don’t you know who I am?
Not your voice, but mine strikes fear into man
My people protected dare not serve me in vain
Without me they are dead, their lifeline, my chain
The will to live, and the will to die

Grip tighter, pathetic swine
Beg for your grand terrible surprise
Swiftly I will give it, no need for patience
Simply the price of your life and mind

Destroyed by lust, face of hate defaced
Hope is lost, breaking, fall, fall down
King I reigned betrayed, faith erased
Hope is lost, breaking, my mistake
2. Cheewhat Giant (1:07)
instrumental
3. Dead Man's Waltz (7:28)
Not the philosophers, but the fret sawyers and stamp collectors
compose the backbone of society

A slave is no longer a victim of pain
Rather enslaved by paper withholding a face
Solitary confinement, artificial excitement
The pendulum swings between man and machine
Insufficient provisions deny our reptilian needs

You can’t deny that your life is nothing,
But a tooth in the fucking cogwheel
Twisting and turning, burning and rolling
Through impotent free will
Imprisonment for intelligence;
They brought you here, did we volunteer?
Now we dance to the shouts of the comforting queen
Marching as she is watching
Through the house of the dead, our fetters are red
And now I raise my left hand up while my right hand is tied

Dance in your fetters
Free your mind from the blur
Demonized for your pleasures
To those chained by the nightmare of (His)tory

Metamorphosis into a brave new human
Shackled and bound into perceived comfort
Pulling your puppet strings in this dead man's waltz

You can’t deny that your life is nothing,
But a tooth in the fucking cogwheel
Twisting and turning, burning and rolling
Through impotent free will
Imprisonment for intelligence;
They brought you here, did we volunteer?
Now we dance to the shouts of the comforting queen
Marching as she is watching
Through the house of the dead, our fetters are red
And now I raise my left hand up while my right hand is tied
4. Shikadance (6:05)
Be yourself, be what you were born to be
Free yourself from this sick society
Conformity the hand that feeds
Destroy any trace of spirituality

All the lies that you have ever been told
Free yourself and sacrifice your mind and soul
Crooked grin smiles back at me
Bloody teeth and the face of the machine

Do as they do, think as they want you to
Do not feel, feel what they have told you to
Live in fear, afraid of the void beyond
Do as they do, think as they want you to
Do not feel, feel what they have told you to
Live in fear, afraid of the void beyond

Afraid of the void beyond
5. The Return (5:23)
Watch the coughing sky
Watch the creatures die
Watch the weakest fall
Crush them as they crawl

Deny that we are next
A technological fix
Organic inadequate
Mother will shun us all
Back to the sea

Burn the last tree down
Punctures through the ground
Spiral to the sky
How high can you climb?

Ignorance is bliss when you’re above it all
Death defying heights mask all our might
Who will wait below to break the fall
Mother will shun will us all
Back to the sea
6. Perfection (6:05)
Perfection
Where did all this desperation come from?

Correct, Protect, Protest, Confess
Castrate, Medicate, Analyze, Revise
Organize, Sanitize, Stylize, Chastise
Baptize, Euthanize, Criticize, Anesthetize

Certify, Segregate, Depopulate, Demonstrate,
Forecast, Theorize, Conspire, Debate
Accuse, Terrorize, Lobotomize, Ostracize
Extradite, Expel, Modify, Fix, Erase,

Build your nests
Raise your flags
Bow to your knees
Will you find your...

Perfection
Imperfection
Must you have a guarantee for everything?
Definitions
Traditions
The repetition rituals of insanity

All sound is music
All light is art
All motion is drama
All thoughts are lies

But oh, the crimes
Didn't you know they're crossing our lines?

Pave the streets
Arm the police
Order in the court
There's mouths to feed

Debunk, Define, Reject, Align
Cosign, Decline, Consent, Rely
Contract, Enact, React, Apply
Don't forget to be moral in every lie

Perfection
Where is it to be found?

Priests for your soul
Shrinks for your mind
Friends your lies

Perfection
To the idealized mind we are bound
Perfection
Six feet underground.

Police for your fear
A spouse for your boredom
Children to keep you alive

Punish, Persecute, Execute, Democratize
Christianize, Televise, Normalize The Human Mind
Pretend, Offend, Be Offended By Your Lies
Anything to prolong the consequences of your...

7. A Path (2:36)
instrumental
8. Bushwhacker (4:42)
Hope for the future
Uprise against uncertainty
Bushwhack a path outside
Temple of the Truth is what I will find
9. Golden Shell (4:55)
Grasping at barren limbs
This fruitless and futile feast
Kneel before the precipice
All answers out of reach

Bind myself
Obscure all sight
Enshrouded in a veil of gold

Relax, be at peace
Set your mind at ease

Progress - I’ve made enough
Stasis and complacency

Relax, be at peace
Set your mind at ease

Blindness - I see what I want
Mindless - No choices left to make
Time is always on my side
“Good things come to those who wait”
But I’m tired of waiting

Tear myself out of this coma
Shedding off this chrysalis

No long prisoner of this golden shell
Destroy this mirage of comfort and stop fooling oneself

Know thyself and cast aside
All dogmas of untruth
Tell myself I am in control
I control my fate, and I alone
I am my own god
