Track Name: Pretty Men
Your filthy hands bear no fruit.
Out of your mind, the ground takes all.
Swing of an axe, beheaded you fall.
No one is immune.
--------------
There’s no pretty men (x4)
-------------
Behind the mask a rotted face,
Poison the river, bleach the sky,
Subdue nature, it’s laws we defy,
Broken mirror of the human race.
--------------
There’s no pretty men (x4)
---------------
Take a good look (x3)
At what we did to ourselves.
Take a good look (x3)
At what we did to the world.
Take a good look (x3)
At what we did to ourselves.
Take a good look (x3)
At what we did to the world.
Track Name: Hard Shapes
Skin beat thin from flailing limbs
The silt, the phlegm, the sticky film
Rocks are hard, the light grows dim.
The blood’s on the paper, read it again.
--------------
You said you liked hard shapes.
It gets you off and it’s getting late.
I got my scrupples, you got sour grapes.
Hate is hate. Hard is the shape.
-------------
The antidote is vapor, carried by a warm breeze
But everyone is clamoring for the disease.
--------------
Make a date with the apple in your eye
Be surprised when it shrivels and dies.
Arsenic core, pry your jaw for the prize
Hard lies, insult or empathize?
-------------
The antidote is vapor, carried by a warm breeze
But everyone is clamoring for the disease.
The antidote is vapor carried by a warm breeze
But everyone is clamoring for the disease.
Track Name: That's When I Reach For My Evolver
That fear that keeps you right in place
Pedaling a bike with no chain
They know how to crush you
They know how to grind you down.
------------
The show continues
It’s entertainment, not progression.
It’s fear and regression
There’s no hope, or compassion.
-------------
But they will sell ice to eskimoes,
Convince them they need it
Stab their back and repeat it
Once defeated
Ask for more ‘cause you believe it.
--------------
Served up right on a plate
This years love is next years hate
Distraction is on debate.
Stop being bait.
--------------
Cut the hand that feeds
Squeeze it where it bleeds
No tourniquet, fuck establishment
American dreams.
Track Name: Ishkabibble
I don’t worry
Because everything is alright
Why worry?
The end is in sight.
I don’t worry
The tax man collects his sum
No worries
The devil bears a son.
----------------------
I don’t worry
They’re knocking at my door.
Don’t worry
If the sky falls there’s always more.
----------------------
I don’t worry
Colluding powers of the many headed snake.
No worries
We’re broken yet they still take.
Don’t worry.
Why worry?
--------------------
We’re not worried.
Can’t be worried.
I’m too busy with nothing at stake.
Track Name: Quest For Infinity
Seed to root, both entwined
My roots they bind.
We're all excess matter, smatterings of flotsam
Thrown into the ether.
Fear the reaper yet sow the seed.
We must weed it out.
Remove the undesirable,
Quest for the insatiable
Divining the illogical.
------------
Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust
It's a vicious race to the end.
-------------
Man creates waste, defined in sin as haste
And thrown resolutely into outer space.
A speck in a grain of sand,
Pretending we're the center of the universe.
It all adds up to nothing,
The human curse.
The human curse.
The human curse.
Track Name: Mass Die Off Engage
Salt in every open wound
Shit out all that you consume
-------------
Mass die off engage
-------------
A fire dwells where darkness looms
It grows stronger as hatred blooms
------------
Mass die off engage
------------
Create false enemies
Corrupt all leaders
------------
Mass die off engage
------------
Connect the dots
You’re not smart, you’re anesthetized.
Feed it garbage.
The landfill is full.
Track Name: Maybe His Name Is a Killing Word
In plain sight for all to see,
Lies so thin, the guise of legitimacy.
Truth eulogized in vacant memory,
History repeats, euthanize fascist ideology.
-------------
We allow it because it's massaged right in.
We don't remember because truth did not win.
-------------
Events unfold, lives are bought and sold
And our name is a killing word.
We kill the world for a little profit,
If compassion is a virtue than we have lost it.
------------
Don't allow it, cut their tongue to silence it.
Always remember- power to those who remain vigilant.
Track Name: XOXOUXO
Your choices for right do not
Sway the hand of control
Two limbs grow from the hand chopped off
The virus spreads in ways we don’t see.
---------------
We support their evil
Whether we want to or not
The hand that feeds is the one that beats me
Fiercely, across my face.
------------
Pitiless, guiltless, men without shame
Morally bankrupt puppet masters
Pitiless, guiltless, men without shame
Morally bankrupt puppet masters.
-------------
We support their evil.
We support their evil, etc.
Track Name: Headlines In Red
I’m at a loss
Come across what’s lost
And wonder why it’s not front and center.
Hyperbole and sensationalism
Common sense cannibalism
And see a flood of fake news enter.
--------------
You’re putty now
In their hands
You’re bloody now,
In their hands
---------------
Feed the beast
Let it off it’s leash
And watch as we become each other’s tormentor
They want more yelling
Over useless banter
It’s not dialogue over anything that matters
The headline’s a mess.
The punch line a waste
The deadline missed
A writer in haste.
The story read: Everything will kill you.
Distract yourself and continue.
Whose line? Going blind. We’ve been mislead this entire time.
------------
You’re putty now,
In their hands.
You’re bloody now,
In their hands.
-------------
Those stories don’t exist
It’s just another list.
Real things happen to real people
All’s not fair, and all’s not equal.
They want blood and they want chaos
Everyone’s yelling to be 24- hour famous.
Track Name: Bacterial Mind
What a travesty
Your office tragedy
I’m not selling your shit
I’m not buying your ideas
------------
I’m not selling my time.
Wrapped up in the nickel and dime.
Lives get cheaper by the dozen for you.
---------------
Straight off the shelf, suit and tie.
Pre-packaged life, you’ve already died.
-------------
Gotta make it on your own.
We all die alone
Your ugly heart turned to stone
Carve that flesh to the bone.
-----------
I’m not selling my time.
Wrapped up in the nickel and dime.
Gotta make it on your own.
We all die alone.
Track Name: Cancellation Prize
A thought as clear as a cloudless day
“Sink into the earth and go away”
The blackest night and the widest of eyes
Covers pulled tight over muffled cries.
---------------
The poisoned mind
That screams out
Te poisoned mind
That calls to the knife.
---------------
My value, questions go round in circles
To nothing we all return, universal.
Neglected soul, where’s it go
What have I done, depression in tow,
-------------
The poisoned mind
That calls out
The poisoned mind
Says there’s an easy way out
------------
Distraction
The life of the mind
Shut off
Wait around to die
Nowhere to go
An empty cage to roam
Track Name: Laugh Track Factory
Jesus doesn’t seem to be listening
So I’ll ignore all the voices in my head
Shouting out for the heavens to hear
Jesus isn’t listening
Ignore the voices in my head.
-------------
No one came running.
Cops are out to lunch.
“The end is nigh”, said no one in particular.
No one came running
Cops are out to lunch
“The end is nigh” said no one is particular.
-----------------
You’re all laughing on the inside and crying on the outside.
Parade of humanity has the coldest punch line in history.
Track Name: Spit Take
To ride a wave of indifference
Measure of one’s own relevance
Fight against the tide of ignorance
It’s a battle each day to refrain from negligence.
----------
Suppose that with age we grow smarter
We can’t remember how ideals grew blurry
It’s a constant struggle.
------------
It’s a spit take.
To look at myself.
-------------
With age please grow stronger
But I’m feeling weaker
Working harder to keep up with how I was.
Track Name: Ugly People
We're no better, fuck this future.
You're face down in shit forever.
Ugly lies, ugly people.
Our true face is shown.
They don't even pretend to care anymore.
-------------
Yeah the president sucks
And all those jackboot followers are total fucks
Nazi thugs joined in a gang.
Pence and Bannon, they all can hang.
-------------
Lockdown on you and me
Lockdown on P.O.C.
Lockdown on all the queers
Lockdown on justified fear
Lockdown on undesirables
Lockdown on intellectuals
Lockdown on the forests and seas
They want us silent and on our knees.
---------------
This sentiment a document of the here and now,
Ugly people scowling over the beautiful resisting masses.
