Depths of Distrust Lyrics

Submitted by level ToLiveIstoDie
1. Servitude (7:22)
Lord is my shepherd
My holy father
Ancient metaphors
Fitting masochistic whores
Kingdom of my master

Slavish brood
Programmed to praise selfless servitude

Serve your God
Serve your country
Serve community
Downplay your salvation
Coercive use

Bless our dear leaders
Government keepers
Fascist overlords
Lavish lifestyles tax the poor
Render unto Caesar

My blood flows for you

Slavish brood
Programmed to praise selfless servitude

(Serve) the public
(Bow) the company
(Kneel) the patron
Downplay your promotion
The taboo truth

Celebrity idols
Reverend role models
Empty impostors
Worthless lives to be ignored
Bind my mind to symbols
2. Windowless I (7:45)
They all lie

Freak show media
Consciousness machine
Tribal game hurls out
Reflexive conditioning

"Thou shalt not alter the consciousness of thy fellow man"
"Thou shalt not prevent thy fellow man from altering his own consciousness"

Freed from my filter
Panoramic sea
World of white light whirls
Into backwards memories

Mind betrayed by space and time
The three collide
Raw sensations amplified
Conscious state clarified

Gauge explain
Weigh narrate

Eyes portray a frame unseen
No boundaries
Sympathetic unity
Synchronous harmonies

Insignificance is my significance
My significance is insignificant

Arrogance a place inside
Some grand design
My separation justified
Windowless I
3. At Bay (6:28)
Submerged amongst the waves again
Endless downpour drowns my breath within
Delusion deepens my dread
Hope looming in a light ahead

Sun dries solid ground
My breath unbound
Soothing welcome breeze
Not what it seems

Lost amongst the sand
Nothing but waves on land
Trust and faith in man
Slipping through my hands

Drifting awry
On the open sea
Deception justifies
Disordered being

Forces submission
Is oblivion

Sunlight all around
My refuge found
Living life at ease
Nothing’s what it seems

Lost upon the land
Back to where I began
Trust and faith in man
Shifting as the sands
4. Our Father (6:39)
Destroy life on earth
Drown the innocent
Sick and elderly
Defenseless infants
Dash some kids to death
Before parents’ eyes
Loot the homes of foes
Thrash and rape their wives

It’s in the book
It’s in your heart

Kill all male children
Kill their mothers too
Keep the virgin girls
For your sexual use
Curse the children who
Scorn a hairless man
Watch while savage bears
Shred them where they stand

He so loved the world

Stone the thief, his kids, and more
Stone his cattle too
Stone to death those you deplore
For opposing you

Force your enemy to eat the flesh of their own sons and daughters
Kill the man who refused to impregnate the wife of his brother

In his own image

Raining fire down on towns
Torch thousands of men
Grind to salt those you allow
To see your sins

Burn and sacrifice
Your young girl to me
I shall grant you bloody victory
Bash brains to bits against stones
Toss bodies out to rot alone
Give virgin daughter to mob for rape
Slay this one, slay that one
Drive sword right through
Pregnant woman’s guts
Slice her open
Tear and rip her up

Starve and torture
Carve the corpses
Infect the genitals
Hamstring the horses

Spread disease
Leave nothing to breathe
Mercilessly taunt and slaughter
Strike the slaves
Send a plague
For I am the Lord, thy Father

On and on
The list goes on
Of beneficence flawed
Fear and fright don’t qualify
As love for your god
5. Contagion (9:59)
6. The Source (10:25)
From Chaos waters Time first nods
From Night born the light of Day
Mother Earth, raped by Sky, bares Titan gods
Bound and locked away

Mutilated by his son
Raining blood, utters a curse
Child devoured, prophecy is done
Father burns, lightning is hurled

For ten years storm-god rages on
Forests burned, seas boiled away
Final threat, flaming roar, eyes hundreds strong
Crushed by mountain, slain

All birth grows from what it is not
Fated in cycles of war
Aggression devastates
But fails to dominate
Destined return to the source

By cosmic planning Time moves on
Four seasons, fixed stars and Fate
Warming sun up at dawn, the moon’s motion
Gods give Nature her rightful place

Uncompleted world undone
Divine image, a creature to serve
Fruit of truth, tree of life, temptation
Fire burns as man yearns to learn

Innocence, a place of peace
(Painless bliss, joyous feasts)
Prosperous, a life of awe
(Peaceful deaths to live with gods)

But imbalance must be righted
Your delight can’t last for long
Opened eyes, mind enlightened
Happiness, an illusion

Curses, anger
Race doomed to failure
Forever toil
Until blood turns to soil

Time of Iron, man’s decline
Faithless children born with hairs of grey
Cities sacked, parents slain, jealousy and lies
God’s image proves its own hate

Inundated by the flood
Helpless cries damned to drown at birth
Love divine buries life deep within the mud
Will Father learn when taking his turn?

All birth grows from what is not
(Force from flaw, sick from sane)
Fated in cycles of war
(Win needs fail, frail needs strength)

Transgression throws its weight
But scales fluctuate
Destined return to the source
(Death the price for our gain)
7. Ritual (7:06)
It’s a useless waste of time
Useless waste of time
Forms imposed change nothing
Why fool yourself with lies
To believe in something?
Useless waste of time
Why try?

The blind bind
To ritual games
Their fears pacified
In false security
You hide in your mind
Narcotic states of faith
Ordained thoughts to mirror

Paint, pierce, remove, resize
Mindlessly mutilate and mime
Replay the paradigm
Paint, pierce, remove, resize, baptize

The grind designed
To stifle change
The years pass you by
In mock stability
You follow your tribe
Flaunting the flesh with marks of paint
Mindless masses grapple
With eternity

Right hand raised
Left on this book
So help me, God
An oath I took

Paint, pierce, remove, resize
Mindlessly mutilate and mime
Replay the paradigm
Paint, pierce, remove, resize, baptize

Don’t ask why
Reason denied
Why pray?
‘Cause it’s our way
Should I
Even reply?
Why pray
When it’s all the same?!
8. Miss Anne Thrope (10:08)
9. Reality Constrained (10:55)
Desperate and drowning again
Constant turns
Wandering waters
Of vague variation
My mind abides
The absurd

I flee
Yet I am frozen
Eyes darkened despite the day
Familiar foreign faces ahead
Facing the dead

Record to preserve the frame
Repeat the pattern
And fabricate
Routine a random interruption
Reality addiction
Lucid but lost
Impose illusion
Ignore the cost

Habitual act
A gridded map
Trust the tool
Filter the facts
(Same shape retained)
Remold recast
And feign

Unbound and boundless again
Nothing learned
Wasting through a world
Of disintegration
My mind denies
What’s occurred

I gain
Yet I can’t grasp it
No distance remains the same
Substantial dissolves into mist
Change persists

Submit to suffice as sane
Numbing narcotic
Construct compelling constellations
The real is artificial
Useful but wrong
Supplant thought with groundless gods

Home to heal
A sacred seal
The wanderer saved
(Shelter attained)
Ingrain the real
And gain

Narcissistic games
Freeze, sedate

Arranged and deranged again
Freedom yearned
Confusing whirl
Of high definition
My mind derides

I join
Yet I’m unwelcome
I follow formality
Strange symbols whose sense I resist
On ritual bliss

Connect and joined the enslaved
Chronic enchainment
Program to avoid apprehension
Order, a nurturing drug
Convenience lies
Decline the digitized anodyne

An artifact
A molded mask
Censor redact
Sculpture strained
(It can’t contain)
It won’t surpass
Disordered motion

Life won’t slip away
Life can’t slip away
Life won’t slip away
Life has slipped away
Life will slip away
Life must slip away
Life will slip away
Life should slip away
