Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Freaks (5:22)
adjustment to nature's blueprint for life
cutting the membranes adding the throwback splice
holding our species future in our hands
writing a language we don't understand

writing a language we don't understand
holding our species future in our hands
cutting the membranes adding the throwback splice
adjustment to nature's blueprint for life

we all come from beyond the naked eye
atomic individuals with elemental minds
we can take our surgery and stick it in between
the leaves of your humanity and wipe the pages clean

yes we can make a few tweaks
yes we will create some freaks

isn't it for liberty the search for mental man
we have the right to implement it just because we can
our moral fibre stretches to the new world of the brave
we stand alone unchaperoned there's no one here to save

yes we can make a few tweaks
yes we will create some freaks

and in the concentrated contents of this flask
a future generation's divorcing it's own past
and it is beautiful and it is clean, obscene

yes we can make a few tweaks
yes we will create some freaks
adjustments to nature's unique
blueprint for life
2. Angels (6:42)
you used to call me different like there was something wrong
a vanishing of reason a soon forgotten song
you used to call me special when i was very small
but now i'm old i should have known
you don't call me any more
and every day you turn away from everything you know
and every night you fade your light soon you won't know where to go

angels calling at my door
i don't know what scares me more
going where they call me to
or staying on this world with you

you used to call me baby but now i'm fully grown
now you're old your eyes are cold and you are so alone
you don't believe your visions you don't believe your son
you don't believe in anything but what your hands have done
and every day you turn away from everything you've heard
and every night you close your eyes and hide your face from every word

angels calling at my door
i don't know what scares me more
going where they call me to
or staying on this world with you

don't you here my gentle voice i'm calling your name
only just a whisper but you know what i'm saying
you are worth so much to me much more than you know
all you've got to do is choose the way that you go

and when you're lost in me i will be found in you
and when i'm found in you the truth will set you free

don't you be so terrified i'll do you no wrong
i don't want to crucify but help you along
you've been losing out on so much more than you know
you've been choosing dangerous paths instead of my road

and when you're lost in me i will be found in you
and when i'm found in you the truth will set you free

angels calling at my door
i don't know what scares me more
going where they call me to
or staying on this world with you
3. The Latent Gene (8:01)
mary's baby's eyes are blue he is to be the chosen few
there's just one thing she's got to do to conceive the latent gene
his absent father's watching him from a gene pool where a billion swim
where mutants form on just a whim and conceive the latent gene

my generation's lost it's patience playing with the world within
accelerated saturation out of our minds on saccharin

mary's baby's eyes are green potential power still unseen
morals cleansed in ethylene and conceive the latent gene
mary's baby's eyes are black a dinucleic heart attack
and the doctor says he's coming back to conceive the latent gene

my generation's lost it's patience playing with the world within
accelerated saturation out of our minds on saccharin

she hears a voice inside her head when all is quiet and she's in bed
it's hard for her to understand the mindspeak of her little man
how can a baby have two mothers adopted long before it's born
conceived by another and from a second torn

but in this safe and confined world within this cookoo's changing it's spots
an outcome unforeseen now we see the latent gene
the doctor's scientific discipline can't stop him changing the plot
an outcome unforeseen now we see the latent gene
faltering telepathy reaching out into his mother's mind

mary's baby's eyes are grey evolution gone astray
changes in his dna have conceived the latent gene

my generation's lost it's patience playing with the world within
accelerated saturation out of our minds on saccharin
4. Lovelorn (5:43)
if i coerced you, you would follow me
i can see into your mind can you see me
i can look at you and move you physically
i'm not the only one i cannot be

how can i touch you when i feel that you would break
how can i talk to you when noise is all you make
am i the only one who isn't deaf and blind
i am so lovelorn it would blow your tiny mind

i must control my own ability
i want your friendship offered willingly
if i could shut out all this noise it would be fine
if i reveal my secret would you be a friend of mine

how can i touch you when i feel that you would break
how can i talk to you when noise is all you make
am i the only one who isn't deaf and blind
i am so lovelorn it would blow your tiny mind
5. Change (4:33)
all my life been holding on to nothing
all my hopes were castles in the sand
i've read words with no comprehension
i've had dreams i don't understand
here i am falling down
all i want is a comforting hand

giving the same as anybody out there
living on guilt 'stead of living on prayer
keep the fire lit i'm making that change for you
kicking the ground with every step that i take
letting you down with every promise i break
don't let go i'm making that change for you

time goes on to help you find the answers
why you're alive and where you go
life goes on but you don't stop to wonder
what there is that you still don't know
here i am growing old
i've got to hold that comforting hand

giving the same as anybody out there
living on guilt 'stead of living on prayer
keep the fire lit i'm making that change for you
kicking the ground with every step that i take
letting you down with every promise i break
don't let go i'm making that change for you
6. Life's Too Good (5:28)
i can see what you think of me
i can know what you want from me
i cast a glance and you understand
i think aloud and there's money in my hand
life's too good

why have i been given the design why must i feel guilty all the time
all your garbage clogging up my mind and the new world moves away

how would you feel if you knew all truth
no need to doubt me im living proof
the world at my feet but no right to dare
your blind ignorance removes all care
life's too good

why have i been given the design why must i feel guilty all the time
all your garbage clogging up my mind and the new world moves away

i can make all the fighting cease
yeah i can bring your world to peace
but i would have to hold your mind this way
all your independance gone away
life's too good

why have i been given the design why must i feel guilty all the time
all your garbage clogging up my mind and the new world moves away
7. Goodbye Mother Earth (7:58)
you're tired of waiting for natural selection
so men are creating genetic perfection
the perfect example of holding the keys
for beautiful people with perfect disease
your tower of babel is falling from the sky
so while i'm able

i'll turn my soul from the world and fly
it's time to say goodbye

you're living for profit no matter what happens
and reaping the forfeit of chemical weapons
the perfect destruction is out of your hands
and under production in enemy lands
but in your logic you found your alibi
and lost your magic

i'll turn my soul from the world and fly
it's time to say goodbye
turn my soul and fly
time to say goodbye

goodbye mother earth you're no longer free
can't you see your situation don't you know your destiny
you hide from the truth and honesty is lost
you look for things to pleasure you but no one wants to count the cost
for all that you've done and all that you've not
no one's there to cover you for all the things that you forgot
goodbye mother earth the truth will be known
soon you'll find there's not much time to go

you brood of vipers
converting human life into your likeness

i'll turn my soul from the world and fly
it's time to say goodbye
turn my soul and fly
time to say goodbye
8. Voyager II (9:04)
a ruby eye of beguiling light winking at orions might
she lures the gallilean mind a new beginning for mankind
and on her face for ages past we gazed through eyes of polished glass

a voyager once landed there and filled with pictures all the air
and awakened yearnings in our heart a home coming or a brand new start
we travelled months in weightless grace traversing voids of time and space
to build what caused our death on earth that here might start our kind's rebirth

come in little earth you cannot hear me now
and i'm never coming back again
hello little earth you cannot reach me now
and i'm never coming down again

nine generations now surviving since our many coloured land has died
and we emerged from biospheres onto a virgin land in tears
for when we took our first few paces into eden's newest pages
we realised what we'd guessed before this was our real home after all

come in little earth you cannot hear me now
and i'm never coming back again
hello little earth you cannot reach me now
and i'm never coming down again

don't know what i'm hoping to find
looking for my peace of mind
don't know what i'm hoping to find
looking for my peace of mind

come in little earth you cannot hear me now
and i'm never coming back again
hello little earth you cannot reach me now
and i'm never coming down again
9. Sunrise On Mars (5:47)
doctor found me just in time
can't recall how long i'd been lying there
he said my body mind and soul
had lost their true alignment
i thought i'd only hurt my head
the pain across my forehead reminded me
its hard to tell you where it hurts
but won't you make it go away
so far away and he said

smile pretend you're on a trip searching
for yourself connecting with your soul
close your eyes, your energy is gone
w can be your strength we have got control
we haven't got much time 'til sunrise on mars

never thought i'd fall from grace
never thought i'd damage and never heal
but everday i lose again, seduced by confusion
i thought the world was black and white
how can i escape from this colourfield
it's hard to tell you why it hurts
or how to make it go away
so far away and he said

come everyone who hurts
if you feel weighed down i will give you rest
you should take my yoke upon your back
learn from what i do my burden is less
and i'll restore your soul for sunrise on mars

never thought i'd make it home
