Archetype Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Slave Labor (3:53)
My chains are paper thin and they're welded with ink
Sealed inside a legal trap, so tight that blood don't leak
A contract with a devil, for a life of disdain
See me in the limelight, an indentured slave
I blame myself

God! Help me pour this gas on me!
I need to drown in flames to be free!
Help me pour this gas on me!

Choke another product for the mass to consume
The flocks of mindless sheep that have corporately groomed
Ignorance through apathy, like drones in the hive
A slave on the payer wheel in conformed disguise
I blame myself

God! Help me pour this gas on me!
I need to drown in flames to be free!
Help me pour this gas on me!

I sold my soul, I sold my soul...

God! Help me pour this gas on me!
I need to drown in flames to be free!
Help me pour this gas on me!
2. Cyberwaste (3:18)
Nothing you say matters to us!
Fuck you!
Spit your worthless point of view, a cog in the machine
Your damn words are straight up lies, continue to deceive
Nothing you say matters to us!
You are a virus spreading disease!
Your life is so sad, spreading lies of me!

Nothing you say matters to us!
Fuck you!
Sow your seeds of ignorance you cyberparasite
Seems you say most anything to stab me with your lies
You are a virus spreading disease!
Your life is so sad, spreading lies of me!

You are a virus spreading disease!
Your life is so sad, spreading lies of me!

Assume that you know my thoughts

Infect me with your disease

Change your face in front of me

Wishing that you know the truth


Nothing you say matters to us!
3. Act of God (5:08)
In my eyes stagnation surrounds
Blood that life beaten and bound
An act of mercy, a scene pain
There is no difference
It's all in your name

This act of god

Lights of fate brighten my eyes
Fires of hate scourge through the sky
Lost in your darkness, burned by your flame
Forced to believe it's all in your name

This act of god

Honesty's heresy in this holy war
Contradiction and affliction hardening my heart
My heart..

Life conflicts with open decay
Death restricts enlightenment
Love is paradise hate is insane
There is no difference it's all in your name

This act of god

Honesty's heresy in this holy war
Contradiction and affliction hardening my heart
My heart..

This act of god
This act of god

Holy war
Holy war

Honesty's heresy in this holy war
Contradiction and affliction hardening my heart
My heart..
4. Drones (5:02)
You waste away
A spinning cage
Mass bided by the sun

You spend your day
Stuck in a race
And life has just begun

A paradise is in eclipse
And lives are lost
And for distress

The wage of sin is money spent
Your life a debt full of regret

We are lost in the maze
Falling
Falling...

And now your life
Amounts to nothing
A fortune has a price

Cause in the end
All humans die
A debt your in the hide

A paradise is in eclipse
And lives are lost
And for distress

The wage of sin is memory spent
Your life a debt full of regret

We are lost in the maze
Falling
Falling....

Falling away again...

(Get! Up!)

Lost in the maze
Falling
Falling...

Falling away again...
5. Archetype (4:36)
You must never forget
The essence of your spark
All of that which defines you
Is the essence of your blood

The infection has been removed
The soul of this machine has improved (x2)

Look into my eyes
And tell me what you see
Someone real
This is real
What you wish to be

You must never forget
To modernize performance
Malignancies on the system
Will handicap slow up and rust

The infection has been removed
The soul of this machine has improved [x2]

Look into my eyes
And tell me what you see
Someone real
This is real
What you wish to be

Fuck!

Can you see
Can you see

Look into my eyes
And tell me what you see
Someone real
This is real
What you wish to be

Open your eyes (open your eyes, open your eyes) [x7]
6. Corporate Cloning (4:24)
A Clone force mass produced
Simulate, introduce
Delinquint, rank and file
Incodent, stamped and styled

Ill-affected progeny
Tasteless iconography [x2]

A half-life in the line
Industry, by design
Plastic thoughts in my mind
Thus begins my demise

This year's model dims and fades
Last year's model is erased [x2]

Prototype
By design
Prototype
Stand in line

(Fading) Another fading idol
(Falling) Another fallen icon
(Fading) Another fading idol
(Falling) Another fallen icon

Life and sex share a mind
Deviance is a crime
Delinquint, rank and file
Incodent, stamped and styled

Ill-affected progeny
Tasteless iconography
This years model dims and fades
Last years model is erased

Prototype
By design
Prototype
Stand in line

(Fading) Another fading idol
(Falling) Another fallen icon
(Fading) Another fading idol
(Falling) Another fallen icon
Another fallen icon

Sometimes I wish I were deaf and blind [x4]

(Fading) Another fading idol
(Falling) Another fallen icon
(Fading) Another fading idol
(Falling) Another fallen icon

(Fading) Another fading idol
(Falling) Another fallen icon
(Fading) Another fading idol
(Falling) Another fallen icon....Icon
7. Bite the Hand That Bleeds (4:09)
I watch you tap the blood in my vein
My heart you feed on to keep you sustained
A parasite that leaves me cold and drained

I'm in shock and you leave me paralyzed
And the saddest part I realize
The absence of truth behind your eyes

I feel you tapping my soul from my vein
I feel you tapping again on my vein
I feel my life slipping away

One more drop of blood I spill
One more drop you take
One more drop and I will spite
And bite the hand that bleeds...

I see you have two faces turning
Changing face to keep me guessing
You have mastered the art of deceiving

Now I know no one trusts you
Now I know not even you do
And I think, your salt in my wounds

Now I know no one trusts you
Now I know no one trust you
Now I know your salt in my wounds

One more drop of blood I spill
One more drop you take
One more drop and I will spite
And bite the hand that bleeds

Bite the hand that bleeds you

One more drop of blood I spill
One more drop you take
One more drop and I will spite
And bite the hand that bleeds

Bite the hand that bleeds you
You...
8. Undercurrent (4:05)
Lies are all that we hear
Death your undertones of fear
Lies are what causes fear
Death you and all that I hear

This in your eyes
So clear your eyes

Undercurrents
We cannot believe
Undercurrents
Slowly drowning me

Face me
Look in my eye
Hate me
I see through your mind
Face me
You still cannot
Hate me
Drowning in lies

Your lies can't hide
So clear your mind

Undercurrents
We cannot believe
Undercurrents
Slowly drowning me

Drown!

Haha!

Undercurrents
We cannot believe
Undercurrents
Slowly drowning me
Undercurrents
Slowly drowning me

Undercurrents
Slowly drowning me
Undercurrents
Slowly drowning me
Undercurrents
Slowly drowning me
Undercurrents
Slowly drowning
9. Default Judgement (5:23)
Discrimination
Your intention to scar me
Discrimination
Your a suspect penalty
I suffer!

Spiteful resolution
By your sentence we must fall
Spiteful resolution
Bitter thoughts destroy us all
We suffer!
Suffer!

Your final judgement stands
Made by your will
I never had a chance
I never will!

By your default judgement
Everyone has suffered
Your pointless judgement
Caused everyone to...suffer!
Suffer!

Your final judgement stands
Made by your will
I never had a chance
I never will!

Day in which god
Judged humankind [x6]
Mankind
Mankind

Your final judgement stands
Made by your will
I never had a chance
I never will!

Never [x8]
10. Bonescraper (4:11)
There is no future for us to suture
Your life ill fated, beat down and hated
Shot in the head, walking undead
Numb to the world, around your head
Rip my skin from my bones, I won't bleed
Rip my heart from my chest, I won't scream

Hide in the shadows, deep black, and hollow
Empty void of light cuts clean, like a knife
Damaged and torn, punctured by thorns
I've felt nothing since I was born
Rip my skin from my bones, I won't bleed
Rip my heart from my chest, I won't scream

My flesh - Your flesh
Your eyes - My sight
My pain - Your shame
We are the same...

Rip my skin from my bones, I won't bleed
Rip my heart from my chest, I won't scream
Rip my skin...
11. Human Shields (5:16)
So much violence in our name
A life, a silence masked in shame

Children running in the streets
Soldier boots are on their feet
Mothers bare the burdens of our defeats
Fathers are on their knees praying for mercy

So much violence in our name
Holding me like your shield
Holding me like your shield
So much violence in our name
A life, a silence masked in shame

No more, no more, no more (no more)
No more, no more, no more (no more)
No more, no more, no more (no more)
No more, no more, no more (no more)

Holding me like your shield
Holding me like your shield
Holding me like your shield
Holding me like your shield

No more violence in our name
No more violence in our name

No more, no more, no more
