Track Name: Alive, Asleep
My life is just fine
Straight out of the product line

I have the kids and the spouse
Watching TV in a snow white house

Yet I need more than this

Living, sleeping
In your role

With no life to call your own

From time to time I dream
Of a self that lets me live to the extreme

Here, I boil with such rage
Aware of how I'm led astray

I'm locked in this glass cage

Chill with friends
In love with sweet Mary Jane

Friends, have some sweet Mary Jane

Dear abyss, dear friends all else is gone now
Have Mary Jane, sweet Mary Jane

Dear abyss

Now, chill with friends
In love with sweet Mary Jane

Dear abyss, dear friends all else is gone now
Have Mary Jane, sweet Mary Jane

Dear abyss

Then I saw dark clouds gathering
All but green in their scent

Fear, it sets in
Dear Jane, we can't win them

Seeking to rend us apart

Steps echo in neon glow
Running for haven, they come

Grim dead cold eyes, then voice

What have we here?
Sweet fragrance of fear

Your trip ends here

I cry here cuffed
Who did I hurt?

I bleed on stone
Please, hear my call

Encased in stone
Hurt and alone

My life was quite fine
Straight out of the product line

I have no kids and no spouse
Visit me here, held in the big house

My life is no more
Too far gone to restore

Here hope, it's too bleak to see
Another tomorrow for me

From time to time I dreamt
Of a self that lets me live to the extreme

Here, I boil with such rage
Aware of how I walked astray

I'm locked in this steel cage
Track Name: Lucid
I've lived all my life
A lie, thinking I am wrong

To trust my dear self and
To do what is right by all

I let go of the past
Just let go

I've lived all my life
A life of lie

Designed by who lead us by
Try and fail

To thrive as a species
To do what is right by all

I let go of the past
Just let go

Where they will not find you must know
What they do to those who can see

Those who speak the truth tend to end up dead
Spread the lie and you just might get ahead

Their world is an illusion you refuse to see
Force-fed to all it keeps you blind and tame

Sleeping, you can't live strong and free
Leaders who love you blind and tame

I see further than black and white
I hear cries of all struck by plight

I feel we will get through this night
I am wide awake and will not hide

My crime was to use crop of a wrong grass
Outlawed unlike drugs all should give a pass

Their world is an illusion you refuse to see
Force-fed to all it keeps you blind and tame

Sleeping, you can't live strong and free
Leaders who love you blind and tame

I see further than black and white
I hear cries of all struck by plight

I feel we will get through this night
I am wide awake and will not hide
Track Name: Rapport
Why do you walk alone?
Go and find those of your own

Know your true purpose
Seek out those who'll set you free

We rise, we fall like the sea

I know your life in rain
Lost and fearful all in vain

We are one life-force
All as children of one source

We rise, we fall so
How a leaf rides the storm
Like the air without form

Yes!

We rise, we fall so
As the leaf we ride storm
Like the air without form we flow

We are self-conscious universe
gazing upon itself immersed

Permadeath is a lie lie lie
this consciousness will never die

Life
Love
Light
Shine bright

Yes, we will ride the storm without fear
Guided by what we revere

Yes, we see light of dawn expanding
Blissful insight, teach us
How we are, always were free

Permadeath is a lie lie lie
this consciousness will never die

We are self-conscious universe
gazing upon itself immersed

We are rising, falling like that
leaf in a raging storm

Knowing death is a lie lie lie
this consciousness will never die

Life
Love
Light
In sight
Track Name: Cursed Ignorance
First, ignore me
A knee-jerk of painful cognitive dissonance

Once, I shook there with fear as well
Confused, abused you dwell

Once, I shook there with fear as well
Confused, abused but a shell

Hey!

Come, ridicule me
Laugh at this clown

Keep it up till I fall down

We go
To primal depths of your cerebral cortex

Still standing, unscathed by the verbal abuse
Sticks and stones there, let your fear loose

Down we go to primal depths
You stand verbal abuse

Does this discomfort arouse hate?
Truth must be painful in your state

Let's shed a tear
For all far and near

Victims of your ignorance

In our world corruption reigns
Due to your withering brains

A tear for victims of cursed ignorance

You must fear all unknown
Forever all will be the same

Do not concern yourself with who we choose to maim

Once, I had this dream
Of a mirror that held a god

Down here, I am waste
Confused as to why this bleak fate

Could love and respect dominate among us?
Could we become divine, outgrow this?

Let us awaken and all may live in bliss

Let's shed a tear
For all far and near

Victims of your ignorance

In our world corruption reigns
Due to your withering brains

A tear for victims of cursed ignorance

It's all the same to your withering brains
yes, it's all the same to your withering brains
Track Name: Ego Death
Lone, my life runs its course
with howl of your fear on my face

Yes, this path is not worn and tried
chosen as right not wide

My ego, I now lay to rest

Die now, pride
My old guide

By your rule we put humankind to death

Each stands as a tree neath sky tall
No tree can alone face gale and not fall

I'm as flow of life for us all

Yes, we all are so much alike
Brothers and sisters

We flow or wither alone

The few see you as foul tumors
They prefer docile consumers

You were too dumb to save your breath
Their servants will put you to death

Die now, pride
My old guide

By your rule we put humankind to death

Each stands as a tree neath sky tall
No tree can alone face gale and not fall

Each stands as a tree neath sky tall
This tree stood alone, faced gale and lost all
Track Name: Abuse
We know that dead men tell no tales
That just might throw our plan off rails

We are free to distort you all since birth
Including your pathetic grasp of the

Earth is our plaything
Have what we choose to bring

Your child before us
Branded as our livestock

You know what we choose
Brain-dead, feed on the news

You fear who we name
Blindfolded blood and blame

Behold, your worldview raped, broken lies

No war is fought for what you know
The righteous words are just for show

You will stand behind this war like the rest
Once false flags fly over the crest of the

Earth is our plaything
Have what we choose to bring

War craves blood so stab yourself
Then point outward where the scapegoats lie

Prepare lambs for sacrifice
Towers prepped to fall and justify your war

V.I.P's are told to stay clear
Defence is disabled, unaware

Remote controlled planes from sky fall
Each slides into a tower's glass wall

Roar fire
Fear choir

Down feeble
Small people

Fall

Fires start to die, smoke climbs black
Time has come to end this mock attack

So pre-planted bombs are set off
Towers crumble down, thousands they drown

Roar fire
Fear choir

Down feeble
Small people

Fall

Smear their blood on goats you chose
Nation blind with fear and effortless to steer

No war is fought for what you know
The righteous words are just for show

You now stand behind this war like the rest
As false flags fly over the crest of the

Earth is our plaything
Have what we choose to bring

You know what we choose
Brain-dead, feed on the news

You fear who we name
Blindfolded blood and blame

Behold, your worldview raped, broken lies

Your child before us
Branded as our livestock

Behold, your future raped, broken lies
Track Name: Global Matters
As a species we stand here at the end
Such a journey
to have come that far for all to crumble down

There are spirits watching over us now
Know at your end
Only matter will die, spirit will flow back home

Home

Only matter will die, spirit will flow back home

We're at war
Our campaign to end life itself

We cannot win this time yet
Sure as hell we'll try

In a barren wasteland the last of us will dry

I spent my life in a glass cage
Built of fear and greed of great age

I was blind to their insane rule
Blessed by our consent

We are the last ones to appear in this form
such a journey that we took in this storm

We did learn much from the love and the fear
Human form fades
Earth will cleanse herself till all sign of us fades

Since birth we are taught to fear all unknown
To see strangers far, near

Fear of death equals fear of life
The greatest truth I hold

Slow, we sway
Dance of decay

Fools brought down
By our tears we drown

Drown as one like we lived none
Hand in hand at world's end stand

Slow, we sway
Dance of decay

Gone like all who through fear grow tall

We're at war
Our campaign to end life itself

We are terrified of death so
we lead our lives in hell

In this barren wasteland the last of us will die

We are the last ones to appear in this form
such a journey that we took in this storm

We did learn much from the love and the fear
Human form fades
Earth will cleanse herself till all sign of us fades

We, the restless blind
All one hive-like mind

We, the restless blind
To the truth: we are of one kind

We, the restless blind

All one hive-like mind
Plants, beasts, all so entwined

with us, the restless kind

Look a beast in the eye and you'll see
Your own far younger self

They are here to learn like me and you
Not to be herded and slaughtered for stew

Same is true for all manner of beings
They are part of the flow

To be respected as me and you
There are no strangers here as we all prepare to drown

Drown as one like we lived none
Hand in hand at world's end stand

Slow, we sway
Dance of decay

Gone like all who through fear grow tall

We are the last ones to appear in this form
such a journey that we took in this storm

We did learn much from the love and the fear
Human form fades
Earth will cleanse herself till all sign of us fades

Fed up with our pitiful charades

As a species, you stand here at the end
Such a journey
To have come that far for all to crumble down

I'm a spirit watching over you now
Know at your end
Earth will cleanse herself till all sign of us fades
