Enemies of Reality Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Enemies of Reality (5:11)
We are the nothing grating against the norm
We are the something that will not conform
No one understands what we've been given

We are the useless by-products of soulless meat
We are all gone we all sing the same tragedy

Open wide and eat the worms of the enemy
We are the enemies of reality, in a world that's unforgiving

Waiting to sanitize bastard tongues
To purify the ignorance that hides the sun
The less you understand the more you're driven

Packaged and processed the masses are force fed
The standards they judge us on swallow the rot we shed

Open wide and eat the worms of the enemy
We are the enemies of reality, in a world that's unforgiving

Breathing dust and decay while I'm sipping
Human trust and betrayal
Losing faith once again
Take my hand my friend, my foe, I am enemy

Open wide and eat the worms of the enemy
We are the enemies of reality, in a world that's unforgiving
Open wide, eat the words, become what you most fear
2. Ambivalent (4:12)
Blind and ambiguous, all part of the game
I've feigned my ambivalence with a smile

All my hate beneath me forms a cage
All this time to form the man I became

The sun in my hand becomes my despair
For I still want the truth

Play the fool so ignorant in the shadow of disdain
Breeding your deception without eyes

All my hate beneath me forms a cage
All this time to form the man I became

The sun in my hand becomes my despair
For I still want the truth

Play the fool so ignorant, deception is the game
Bleeding hearts and soiled minds
Reflect the state of our being

All my hate beneath me forms a cage
All this time to form the man I became

The sun in my hand becomes my despair
The sun in my hand becomes my despair

Play the fool so ignorant, deception is the game
Bleeding hearts and soiled minds
Reflect the state of our being
3. Never Purify (4:04)
Scrape the pain off of my lips and watch our lives unwind
When I am in the camera eye self-immolation can never purify

Look at me, I'm on display
Another animal in this zoo our creator betrayed
If you don't feel the lesson, you're blind and deaf my son
But don't run

Look at me, I'm on the wire

I am not your saviour

Scrape the pain off of my lips and watch our lives unwind
When I am in the camera eye self-immolation can never purify

I am not your saviour

Look at me, I'm never afraid
I'll never look back in disdain

Scrape the pain off of my lips and watch our lives unwind
When I am in the camera eye self-immolation can never purify
4. Tomorrow Turned Into Yesterday (4:35)
Inside black decision concealing what no one knows but I
To regain the vision that my freewill once cast aside
Tomorrow turned into yesterday
The Sweet downhill sadness of our slow decay

Tomorrow turned into yesterday
And I see the fault of the steps that I mislaid

Tonight the north wind spoke to the trees
And said, "open your eyes"
Deep silver glimmer slither, drip down
And emotion dies, emotion dies

Tomorrow turned into yesterday
And I see the fault in a chance that was never taken

Tomorrow turned, tomorrow's gone
But did we learn, where we went oh so wrong

Tomorrow turned into yesterday
Tomorrow turned into yesterday

Tomorrow turned, tomorrow's gone
But did we learn, where we went oh so wrong
Oh so wrong
5. I, Voyager (5:49)
If you view life as a mission
For truth and purity in vision
You can become as the anointed
And fade away from the disjointed

In observation, I analyze
All the aspects of humanity that I despise

I am the voyager
I have tasted pleasures of the flesh
And drunk the pleasures of the mind
To reach the point I've attained
Clear focused and defined

Those who don't create dictate
The structure of our world and preach hate
Drifting out of languid boredom
To destroy the structure of our kingdom

In observation, I analyze
All the aspects of humanity that I despise

I am the voyager
I have tasted pleasures of the flesh
And drunk the pleasures of the mind
To reach the point I've attained
Clear focused and defined

If you live life draped in sorrow
You will destroy the path we follow
Take my hand and walk in wonder
The patterns spin in random order

In observation, I analyze
All the aspects of humanity that I despise

I am the voyager
I have tasted pleasures of the flesh
And drunk the pleasures of the mind
To reach the point I've attained
Clear focused and defined
I am the voyager
6. Create the Infinite (3:39)
Listen and I'll tell you the story of our end
Equate the calculation, salvation's fucking dead
Learn the lesson quickly
The enemies of reality bring the sickness
Of cleansing genius

What are we but men without eyes?
Swimming through the poison of design

Create the infinite and expand the question
Count to number seven
Your day of rest creates infection, your imperfection

What are we but men without eyes?
Swimming through the poison of design

The waves ran as the storm came
The lightning in the distance signaled the coming crushing days
The sky was brooding and beautiful
And the gulls sailed like recycled fragile entities

The waves bled as the storm changed
In the cold embrace of the unknown
Not even blood could bring us warmth

There is no future shock
There is no god
There is no fashionable deliverance

What are we but men without eyes?
Swimming through the poison of design
What are we but men without eyes?
Swimming through the poison of design
7. Who Decides (4:15)
And so we meet again, the dirt on our feet but then
Who knows who really decides?
In this spacial oddity, this viral commodity
The astronaut listens to voices that call
Won't you follow me down?
Breathe, as you suffer with existence

Rags and ruin of all that was human
Leaching the force of collective design
Heroes and rapists they all have nice faces
But who decides, who defines, who draws all the lines?

In this wasted miracle, the outcome so terminal
Why do we waste time on hope?
In perfect execution, liquid and lucid
Born in the astromaut's eyes
Of hate, loathing, wonder, and fear
Breathe as you suffer in denial

The lover and the blind man they sing their song
The pleasured and the pained pray their sins are gone
They can't reach heaven, the truth's brutal lesson
Forgive yourself, for no one else will die for your crimes
But who decides, who decides?
8. Noumenon (4:37)
Regret nothing, resistance is remorse
All feeling is to now be without consequence
Truth has become media controlled
Open wide and eat the worms of the enemy
Reality is distortion of perception
We are the enemy

There is no stronger drug than reality
Twist and change, time is nothing, regret everything

Young hearts are pure like violet drops of rain
Until life teaches us to be stoned or ashamed

There is no stronger drug than reality
We are the enemy
9. Seed Awakening (4:31)
There is no stronger drug than reality
Twist and change, time is nothing, regret everything

Witness Seed Awakening
Witness Seed Awakening

The execution solution, we're weeding out the weak
So condemn their revelations, the masses love the death show

We are cold when we are strong
In one breath we can still grow

We are cold when we are strong
In one breath we can still grow
These curious moments of shattered clarity
Stained sentient portraits of our damaged sanity

If this is our perdition, will you walk with me?
We are sentient shades of our subtle mortality

We are cold when we are strong
In one breath we can still grow
These curious moments of shattered clarity
Stained sentient portraits of our damaged sanity
Stained sentient portraits of our damaged sanity
