1. Silenced (3:01)
Sticker this, censor this, ban this, we've got something to say!
Police this, condemn this, damn this- we'll be heard anyway!
Middle finger is the flag that I wave when I'm silenced!

Listen here.
Is it a possibility that we're all just equal? Slam the power down, abusing!
Does it piss you off to be beat at your own game?
You lead us with false morals and shelter reality!

No more... we're not buying your product when you're selling the words preaching silence!

Insult me in my home where you were never invited To live life off your curve, frustrating!
Throw sticks into the spokes to relieve insecurities.
Stifle all ascension and sticker our freedom of speech!
SO WRONG!

Sticker this, censor this, ban this, we've got something to say!
Police this, condemn this, damn this- we'll be heard anyway!
Middle finger is the flag that I wave when I'm silenced!
SILENCED!

Don't tell me what I want, don't tell me what I need.
Don't tell me how I need to feel, I feel GODDAMN NOTHING!
Dig the eyes out of my face, I can still see right fucking through you.
Fuck you and everything you are, I'm me, we're us, and that's all!
Closed mind with a forum to criticize, keep your policy and I've got mine.
Exploit me, fabricate your lies, we empower these cowards just to be left in silence!

Listen here:
Stand on my soapbox and speak my own peace. Whatever you may think, it's
REAL!
Prevail through what is me and step on your beliefs.
Thieving spineless sell-outs robbing our integrity!

BRING IT ON!

Sticker this, censor this, ban this, we've got something to say!
Police this, condemn this, damn this- we'll be heard anyway!
Middle finger is the flag that I wave when I'm...
2. Trapped in the Wake of a Dream (4:43)
Do I deserve these beatings? Hating me, well then cut. Cut the noose and let me fall away.
I'm growing weak and tired of you, and your little shoving games,
Fucking pushing me.
You pulled the trigger, trapped in the wake of your...

DREAM! You're all killers! Always fucking pushing me, insulting me, I'm overcome
I have found the strength of gods in me. Crushing, all unwilling, this is so unstoppable.
Hard as nails, hook that holds, reach down and find the strength of many in you.

My sanctuary calling my name, so I run through to the light, weeping through a cloud.
Darkened by a tainted dream of me, being pummeled by the tide crushing, killing me.
But I can't wake up, trapped in the wake of a...

DREAM! You're all killers! Always fucking pushing me, insulting me, I'm overcome
I have found the strength of gods in me. Crushing, all unwilling, this is so unstoppable.
Hard as nails, hook that holds, reach down and find the strength of many in you.

Call it, call it a truce, I'm believing in it more and more.
Comfort, purge the truth, I'll believe it, I'm so weak and sore.
Shadowed, hide and seek, but you never looked, I wait behind the door.
Call out, bite the hand that is feeding, COMPASSION NO MORE!

I HOPE I NEVER WAKE UP!

Dream sewing, filters distort reality of what is mine.
Through light this mind awakens, I draw the line from then and now.
Awake and dreaming, forgotten past... future becomes MINE!

Throw the chains all away, take control of your life.
Powers known, this is my...
Throw the chains all away, take control of your life.
Powers known, THIS IS MY...

DREAM! You're all killers! Always fucking pushing me, insulting me, I'm overcome
I have found the strength of gods in me. Crushing, all unwilling, this is so unstoppable.
Hard as nails, hook that holds, reach down and find the strength of many in you.
3. Not Falling (4:03)
Always known in all my time, a little left of center now.
Reflect as I realize that all I need
Is to find a little bit about to sit like the sun like a star in the sky and just be.
Sinners, casting stones at me!

I, I stand- not crawling, not falling down! I, I bleed- the demons that drag me down!
I, I stand (for nothing)! Not crawling (the center), not falling down! (Of calms within the eye!)
I, I'll bleed (for no one)! The demons (but myself) that pull me down...
For me and no one else.

Goodbye sunshine, I've put it out again, SAD!
I'm over, personalities conflicting, I don't need you or anyone but me.
I'll just be living my own life. I feel my glowing center grow.
Infecting, I feel alive and sharper, turn on the lime.
Plant it in myself to sit like a seed under covers of earth and just be.
Sinners, point your fingers at me!

I, I stand- not crawling, not fallings down! I, I bleed - the demons that drag me down!
I, I stand (for nothing)! Not crawling (the center), not falling down! (Of calms within the eye!)
I, I'll bleed (for no one)! The demons (but myself) that pull me down...
For me and no one else.

Come play kill. Refuse my body, refuse my shadow!
Stone cold will. Refuse to lead this, refuse to follow!
Bitter pills - refuse to feed this, refuse to swallow, I'm fueled godless!
Come play, come play kill. Just be.
4. (Per)Version of a Truth (4:41)
When everything is lost (peel it all away). Haunting us with questions (asking).
Will we ever find the smile inside (no), is it hiding behind the sweating eyes (bleeding)?
Dead inside - a scream that's pouring from me!

I'm planted in this skin (constricting and pulling me).
This dirty, filthy skin (rancid and stinging me!)
I burn behind the walls (that have become my world).
The bearer of a gift, FUCK YOUR GIFT!

TRUTH DOES NOT EXIST, but the lies do... (2x)
They're buried in the skin, evolved.

Perversion of a truth, I'm stuck there. (Alone) Inside of lies buried in me,
WHY?!
Born into a world; never asked to be here. Try to forget truth doesn't exist,
TRUTH!
It doesn't exist, it doesn't exist, TRUTH! DAATH!

Always inside a tragedy (things never seem to go away).
A room that I remember (portraits I carry).
Try letting go of this space (bad habits can't kick me).
The fool that fell from heaven, HEAVEN!

Perversion of a truth, I'm stuck there. (Alone) Inside of lies buried in me,
WHY?!
Born into a world; never asked to be here. Try to forget truth doesn't exist,
TRUTH!
It doesn't exist, it doesn't exist, TRUTH!

Maybe we're all the children of a star, misguided in direction, our misdirection.
Pardon me while I pray for light.

I'm not the only one that walks between the rain, there are many.
I'm not the only one when everything is lost that doesn't surrender.

Perversion of a truth, I'm stuck there inside of lies buried in me, WHY?!
(Alone.)
Blind walking through a world, I never asked to be here.

Versions of the truth, I'm not the only one.
LIES!
5. Mercy, Severity (4:54)
We've come here from so far away, I can save you if you leave it all behind.
This suffering's been far too long, would you take a trip with me on the back of a star?
I feel like earth's gravity is just here to pull us down!

Mother of creation, wait! Embrace the souls of the lost world, carry them away.
Darkness, negative, receptive. Pour firmament between our waters, separate the space.
Mother of destruction, wait! With a belt of skulls, strap me down and send the ship away!
Progress with the process! Mine the souls from their casts, pour, form, and reshape!

This dark womb wraps and covets me, redefining, understanding if you open up the heart.
Nurturing this phenomenon. We can carry on our wings, our wings through the dark.
Lightning flashes of insight into the mirth of a dark sky...
Pain of division is nothing, joy of disillusion is everything!

Mother of creation, wait! Embrace the souls of the lost world, carry them away.
Darkness, negative, receptive. Pour firmament between our waters, separate the space.
Mother of destruction, wait! With a belt of skulls, strap me down and send the ship away!
Progress with the process! Mine the souls from their casts, pour, form, and reshape!

Portal sits deep within the eye!
The eye of Yin's severity, rewards understanding.
Portal sits deep within the eye!
The eye of Yin's severity, rewards understanding.

Blackness consumes body comforts core of nothing. [2X]
Mother, I can remember a vault of security.
Can you take me away, would you take me away, won't you take me away, AWAY!

Mother of creation, wait! Embrace the souls of the lost world, carry them away.
Darkness, negative, receptive. Pour firmament between our waters, separate the space.
Mother of destruction, wait! With a belt of skulls, strap me down and send the ship away!
Progress with the process! Mine the souls from their casts, pour, form, and reshape!
6. World So Cold (5:39)
When passion's lost, and all the trust is gone, way too far for way too long.
Children crying, cast out and neglected... only in a world so cold, only in a world this cold.

Hold the hand of your best friend, look into their eyes, then watch them drift away.
Some might say we've done the wrong things for way too long, for way too long...

Fever inside the storm, so I'm turning away. Away from the name (calling your names)
Away from the stones (throw sticks and stones) Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us.
Keep your thorns, cause I'm running away. Away from the games (fucking head games)
Away from the space (hate this head space) The circumstances of a world so cold...

Burning whispers remind me of the days. I was left alone in a world this cold.
Guilty of the same things, provoked by the cause. I'm left alone in a world so cold!

Fever inside the storm, so I'm turning away. Away from the name (calling your names)
Away from the stones (throw sticks and stones) Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us.
Keep your thorns, cause I'm running away. Away from the games (fucking head games)
Away from the space (hate this head space) The circumstances of a world so cold...

I'm flying, I'm flying away! Away from the names (calling your names)
Away from the games (fucking head games) The circumstances of a world so
COLD!

Why does everyone feel like my enemy, don't want any part of depression or darkness.
I've had enough, sick and tired, bring the sun or I'm gone... OR I'M GONE!

I'm backing out, I'm no pawn, no motherfucking slave to this -
Never lied, never left, never lived, never loved.
Never lost, never hurt, never worry about being me or anyone else.
Not a care, no concern. Don't give a shit about anything!

Backing out, giving up, no motherfucking slave to this.
Never lied, never left, never lived, never loved.
Never lost, never hurt, never worry about being me or anyone else.
Not a care, no concern. Don't give a shit about anything!

I need to find a darkened corner, a lightless corner where it's safe and calmer.
I'm turning away. Away from the name (calling your names)
Away from the stones (throw sticks and stones) Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us.
I'm running away. Away from the games (fucking head games)
Away from the space (hate this head space) The circumstances of a world so cold.

I'm flying, I'm flying away! Away from the names (calling your names)
Away from the games (fucking head games) The circumstances of a world so
COLD!
7. The Patient Mental (4:38)
Patient, just as I am, as always.
Watch the time go by, nothing left to pass by.
The minutes follow me, drunken little people work away in me.

Why won't they leave me, leave me alone?
When I don't even want me, want me.

I have to kill the words before they form my sentence.
The sentence that is me, judged by those that carry.
The patient sits in cradled arms that comfort me by strangling.

Why won't they leave me, leave me alone?
When I don't even want me, want me.

The patient mental sits and stares,
An idle mind that's empty, screaming, staring back.
Why won't they leave him, leave him alone?
A passive speared ritual, driven by our war ship... the hate-driven enemy.

They have to kill the meal before they can consume.
Consume my inner peace without the understanding.
Trapped inside the works, the hands are moving me.

The patient mental sits and stares,
An idle mind that's empty, screaming, staring back.
Why won't they leave him, leave him alone?
A passive speared ritual, driven by our war ship... the hate-driven enemy.

Release me, let me go, why do they observe me?
There's nothing here to cure.
I can see the silhouettes that sit behind the mirror.
I'm just like a clock upon the wall - always moving, but never going anywhere.

The patient mental sits and stares,
An idle mind that's empty, screaming, staring back.
Why won't they leave him, leave him alone?
A passive speared ritual, driven by our war ship... the hate-driven enemy.
8. Skrying (5:39)
This puzzle's dead inside, missing pieces growing eyes, mystery.
Little girls severity, little boys begging mercy.
Sticks break at me, cost of life at 23.
Price of pain - a golden ring, all crimson.
Melting body, rubber world; battle axe with locks of curls, INTROVERTED.

My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you remember that place?
That place you would go to make things okay...

1000 points for insect stings, glue my spirit, break my wings, misery.
Libido steams, infectious whore... cauterize and forge the sword.
REMEMBER KILLING!

Children learning the secret knock,
A nickel to enter that place, that place you would go to make things okay.
My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you remember that place?
That place you would go to take pain away...

Games of passion taste so sweet, cut his throat and slaughter meat, my secrets.
Seven heads for seven seas, darkened voices plead disease, dismembering me.

Children wrestle to seal the bag, storing it deep in that place.
That place you would go to try to escape.
Children learning the secret knock,
A nickel to enter that place, that place you would go to make things okay.
My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you remember that place?
That place you would go to take pain away...

Skrying through reflections in a pool, I see death coming, mowing down.
Do you remember the bedroom, was it your cell or was it your tomb?
[Repeat, screamed.]

You're living through my hell. [2X]

Children learning the secret knock,
A nickel to enter that place, that place you would go to make things okay.
My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you remember that place?
That place you would go to take pain away...
9. Solve et coagula (2:49)
Fire, fire. I dissolve and solidify, destroy to recreate.
Disassemble to assemble something pure.
Our rubric sol-ve-et-co-ag-u-la...
Kill to be born again, cycled a thousand times.

Fire, planetary alchemy, fire, the time is here now.
Fire, four corners to rise... fire, rise!
Fire, there's always loss within, fire, the cleansing, it's time.
Fire, shooting arrows to the sky... fire!

I construct a new institution, not out of bricks, iron, cement, concrete, or steel.
Our rubric sol-ve-et-co-ag-u-la...
Distill to purify, we've done it a thousand times.

Fire, planetary alchemy, fire, the time is here now.
Fire, four corners to rise... fire, rise!
Fire, there's always loss within, fire, the cleansing, it's time.
Fire, shooting arrows to the sky... fire!

Burn, bleed all the lives of life, ascend to the sky.
Burn all the martyrs!

Fire, planetary alchemy, fire, the time is here now.
Fire, four corners to rise... fire, rise!
Fire, there's always loss within, fire, the cleansing, it's time.
Fire, shooting arrows to the sky... fire!
10. Shadow of a Man (3:55)
Mirror, mirror, upon the wall... I'm asking you
Who is the most confused of them all?
Mirror, mirror, subservient twin screams back at me "you."
You sick flawless mime, I want to break you. Yeah, you're a clever one...

Do you reflect me, or do I reflect you, are you inside of another world?
I want to break through... yeah, you're a clever one.

Is this a tool, can I step through?
To find another plane or just a shadow of a man?
A superficial tool to support the vanity of weak...
When you don't love yourself.

If life's as painful on your side,
I'll break your existence and cut through mine.
You're a clever one.

Are you a tool, can I step through?
To find another plane or just a shadow of a man?
Are you my brother? You look like me trapped inside another world.
My lost twin... just a superficial tool, to support the vanity of weak
When you don't love yourself.

Mirror upon the wall, am I the reflection of you?
Mirror upon the wall, are you staring back through?
Understanding has no place within my world on your side.

Are you a tool, can I step through?
To find another plane or just a shadow of a man?
Are you my brother? You look like me trapped inside another world.
My lost twin... just a superficial tool, to support the vanity of weak
When you don't love yourself.

12. The End of All Things to Come (3:00)
All over with... fuck all the flags, the greed, the world leaders.
Run for the fence. We're coming, we're killing, we're changing the faces.
Believe in yourself! Let go of ego, strengthen within yourself.
All over with! We're coming, we're killing, we're changing the faces.

I'm killing every fucking thing
Until somebody gets the fucking point, the point I'm trying to make.
I lead the mice on parade down to the river of kool aid and open up the flood gates.
I need a barrel of cyanide; a pile of strychnine
Until the whole damned world is dead, start over again!

All over with... fuck all the flags, the greed, the world leaders.
Run for the fence. We're coming, we're killing, we're changing the faces.

Stop talking, negotiating...
Your feeble attempts towards world peace, give me a fucking break.
Need world-wide genocide, planetary suicide!
And when the whole damn world is dead, there's your fucking peace!

All over with... fuck all the flags, the greed, the world leaders.
Run for the fence. We're coming, we're killing, we're changing the faces.
Believe in yourself! Let go of ego, strengthen within yourself.
All over with! We're coming, we're killing, we're changing the faces.

Oxygen wasters, come on!

We've come to save you... to save you from yourselves.
Kill or be killed.

All over with... fuck all the flags, the greed, the world leaders.
Run for the fence. We're coming, we're killing, we're changing the faces.
Believe in yourself! Let go of ego, strengthen within yourself.
All over with! We're coming, we're killing, we're changing the faces.
13. A Key to Nothing (5:06)
No more doors, no more locks, no more windows, no more box.
No more, no less, no more six foot digs, no more hypocrites!

No more emptiness, no more consequence, no more puppet strings, no more disease.
No more growing up, no more happiness, no more lying down, no more complacence.

I have, I hold the key to nothing... it's a small killing.
Murder, murders in the hands of motion, as it seems to be.

No more nothing, no more anything, no more you, no more me.
No more posturing victories, no more nations to defeat, no more speaking truth, no more deceit.
No more holding down, no more pushing me, no more new world order, no more anarchy!

I have, I hold the key to nothing... it's a small killing.
Murder, murders in the hands of motion, as it seems to be.

I'm washing my hands of the whole thing.

I want no more nothing.

I have, I hold the key to nothing... it's a small killing.
Murder, murders in the hands of motion, as it seems to be.
I'm washing my hands of everything, of everything we are.
