Track Name: Multiverse
*MULTIVERSE

Do you ever think how your life could end at any second?
Oh no, oh no, you think you'll live forever

It's just so arrogant how we live our lives
As though we're essential and count for something
We behave in total disrespect of the fact we're always on the edge
Of existence and nothing
Time is a mortar and pestle slowly wearing down my bones
I soon will turn to dust underneath the roots and stones


You take all of my time like I have so much to give
You waste all of my time like I get more than one life to live
We think we're the ones that matter that this is the significant place
Vaguely content with our delusions-- to never look death in the face
Our lives are filled with trivial bullshit, and we talk like it's a special grace


Many die from war or disease in lands far away
Still we think our first world problems are worth the time to pray


You're not the center of the universe
I'm not the center of the universe
Addicted to glowing rectangles we sit idly devoid of passion
Losing our time as it flies by while we keep up with the Kardashians


Answer the question for yourself: What is the purpose of my being?
You must decide the meaning.
Track Name: Transcendental Needs
*TRANSCENDENTAL NEEDS


Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known
Threatened your tradition, held sacred
Nature demystified
Black and white paradigm outmoded
Afterlife nullified

Cradled in the palm of God
Invisible essence
Silent night and empty skies
I never felt a presence

I am just a complex ape
Designed for sowing seeds
Imagination spawned the concept
Of transcendental needs


Every tribe walked this path and had a vision
Maybe God is just too big to fit in one religion
We call one truth by a thousand different names
In the end the sages all speak the same

Forge it, fake it
Never admit it
Too proud to be wrong

Temples, Churches
All seem so certain
No one really knows the truth

Cast doubt, day in and day out
Beliefs so very narrow
Black light
A stab without sight
Am I worth more than a sparrow?

Strive to be immortal, eternal
Hidden worlds to discover
If we’re just decaying carbon
At least we’ve got each other

Search the scrolls
Scout the stars
Explain who we really are
Dragging depths, unearthing stones
Wonder if we’re all alone

All alone
Alone
Alone

I don’t know why we’re here, what came first, what comes next
If we just get one chance, search the scrolls, scout the stars
I don’t know why we’re here, what came first, what comes next
A god in every heart, fragment of the Divine
The choice is fear or love
Track Name: Machine Hearts, Machine Minds
*MACHINE HEARTS, MACHINE MINDS


Adjust to corruption
Spiraling through silicon skies
Consecrate destruction
Drowning in an ashen sea


Technologically I'm obsolescent
Automatons dominate the present
Compassion could never compete
Against the arsenal of the elite


Face to face with listless eyes,
Soulless men, machine hearts, machine minds
Obsession with wealth so despotic
Laissez-faire artifice of the robotic


Tell us to stay in the mineshaft,
when the canary is already dead
But the lesser of two evils is still evil,
and my enemy's enemy is not my...

The modern slaves scourged to produce our pharaoh's cybernetic pyramids


We are martyrs to self-proclaimed gods, a neo animal sacrifice
Let children starve like dogs in the streets
But it all goes back in the box,
it all goes back in the box

Tell us to stay in the mineshaft,
when the canary is already dead
But the lesser of two evils is still evil,
and my enemy's enemy is not my friend


We remain inhumane
Track Name: Polar Knights
* POLAR KNIGHTS

In a decaying society, art must reflect decay
The wells are running dry and our future wastes away
Vapid promises spew from the leaders of every nation
they know damned well we're on the brink of annihilation

How far must we walk down this road before we see where it leads?
When did the focus shift to gluttonous wants from collective needs?
Massive civil unrest, symptoms of a dying system
Transition to something that appeals to collective wisdom.


Move forward
Bury the structures we revile
Move forward
Our union will signal rebirth like the full moon over the Nile


The war machine marches on, prolonging relentless matricide
We have found the cancer that needs to be excised
Accepting serfdom, the world patiently awaits a messiah
Tell everyone there's nobody coming and you become a pariah
With a planet in debt to itself we watch our systems grind to a halt
The shit hits the fan, we don't change a thing, the implosion is all of our fault


We're headed to oblivion, cause we've chosen to be oblivious


Move forward
Bury the structures we revile
Move forward
Our union will signal rebirth like the full moon over the Nile


Your loss is their gain


We give to the rich and rob from the poor
there's always an excuse to profit from war
Hard to imagine no possessions if you're sitting in a mansion,
The suits were banking on the stocks to once again rise
We're seeing the world economy collapse before our eyes
We gave you the tired poor huddled masses yearning to breathe free
and now that's all that's left of our society
The stage is set for extinction
Don't let them tell you your vote counts


You have to scream for your voice to be heard


Move forward
Bury the structures we revile
Move forward
Our union will signal rebirth like the full moon over the Nile
Track Name: Denial of Death
*DENIAL OF DEATH

Kept away from the mirror for a quarter century
A handful of dirt and mouthful of worms reveal my destiny
Obstructed in the pursuit of infinite expansion
Repressions protect from harsh truths
Flight from reality,
Freedom from passive contingency

Look on as history’s heroes are slaughtered and we feebly reconstruct
Forsake agape to invest in eros,
Swelling demoniac rage

The god of the atheists
Shepherd drawing the wayward flock
Spires that pierce the heaves
Forever unbound from biological clock


Impregnate every succubus and
Burn the flag I used to wave
Can I fulfill self-regeneration
In sending my father to his grave?
Reprobate only ambition the endless dynasty I crave
Can I fulfill self-regeneration
In sending my father to his grave?


Enthrone myself the king of the anarchists
Lead an army through genocidal campaigns
Stomp through foreign roads
Erecting monuments that put Lincoln and Lenin to shame


Exiled from Eden, I'll still ration the forbidden fruit
As the eagle feasts on my liver, I'll share the warmth of stolen fire with you


Death will kneel to kiss my feet to make time stand still is my vow
Causa sui project spills from my lips, I need to be your ‘Thou’
Submerged, negated, humbled and castrated until now
Causa sui project spills from my lips, I need to be your ‘Thou’
Quaking beneath the burden of humanity winding down,
the delicate flowers once in full bloom are going to wilt & brown
Denial will not change the facts nor distinction nor renown,
the delicate flowers, now in full bloom are going to wilt & brown


Death will kneel to kiss my feet to make time stand still is my vow
Causa sui project spills from my lips, I need to be your ‘Thou’
Submerged, negated, humbled and castrated until now
Causa sui project spills from my lips, I need to be your ‘Thou’


Fears eclipsed by the tide, ephemeral ecstasy
The corpulent crows, the trail of dead souls preserve this legacy
Elegy unto the stardust successor
Unveiled the vital lie
Anyone can play god, yet death won't be denied.
Track Name: Locked Inside
*LOCKED INSIDE

Concealing what we're ashamed of
Sweeping all under the rug
Basket left outside the door
Abandoned here forevermore

Locked inside padded walls
Waiting for parents to return
won't feel the breeze upon their skin
A child's suffering is not your concern



From a distance, a darker era' s vestiges remain
Alone in the cradle, with no one to ease the pain
You said those days were over when you joined the union
But that secret is out now, no more hiding your institutions

The blind will freeze in their tracks, unsafe without a hand
Others will lay for years in their crib and never even stand
The muscles and mind will atrophy, a widespread sickening apathy
willfully as deaf, dumb and blind as the little ones we watch over
No one will speak for those who can't speak for themselves


From a distance, the residue of a troubled past
Society has moved on, but still you let the abuses last
You said those days were over when you joined the union
But that secret is out now, no more hiding your institutions

Lacking oversight

Hiding the failure of a nation

Contributing to new disabilities, and needless amputations

You are the guardians
Disposed of by their mothers and fathers
You are the guardians
But you barely even bother

You are the guardians
Forgotten by their mothers and fathers

You are the guardians
But you barely even bother
You take your frustrations out on a boy that can't defend himself
You force yourself a little girl who can't speak a word
Complicit in the death of the resource that we're supposed to cherish
What does it say about a people who lets their children perish?


Echoes of a cry that will never be attended to
Resonate in the chamber at the end of these darkened halls
When you turn a blind eye to the agony of the innocent,
It should come as no surprise when your society falls
Track Name: The Things
*THE THINGS


He came to free me from the prison of my own design
this is your life ending one minute at a time
As the scales fall from my eyes I see
vivid visions of what to do before I die

Liberated from property
My perception is shifting
Contrived desire, never have enough
The dream we're sold will stay out of reach


We whored ourselves
So we could keep hoarding
We pissed away our youth
We work jobs we hate for things we don't need
Now we're slowly finding the truth


Swallowing lies
A shallow sense of meaning
Giving up on dreams to keep climbing the ladder
Perfect life, trophy wife, did you get what you wanted?
We detached from nature
Chasing the dollar
Not thinking for ourselves, I'll put this into perspective
Everything small is just a small version of something that's big


Why do we let our identities bleed into the things that surround us?
You're not defined by the symbols of your status
So why do we let our identities bleed into the things that surround us?
Don't be defined by the symbols of your status


The things you own will end up owning you
Will end up owning you


Our chance to break the fixation
on power and possessions,
To jettison the nonsense for something true


Spectating while life slips from our hands
Lost in mediocrity, whether white or blue
We're forgetting what it is to be human
To create instead of consume
Track Name: We Dominate
*WE DOMINATE


Conscious awake and aware in the world
Gazing in eyes just like mine
Life is sacred no matter the form communion creation divine
So many degrees of separation between the slaughterhouse and the store
Ignorant of what we consume to ashamed to look at the source
Malicious mantra of might making right erodes our humanity
The line's been drawn
Fashionable furs, foie gras on a plate lays bare the absence of empathy
The line's been drawn
Our anthropocentric perspective a tyrannical philosophy
The line's been drawn
We pretend that we're the most important to excuse atrocities
The line's been drawn


Just because we're dominant doesn't mean we should dominate,
Just because we can destroy does not mean we should not create
Placing ourselves on a pedestal like we inherited the Earth
We're tied to the same cycle of death and new birth


Bury my body so I may return to the land I love
Break down my body in to the soil for green grass to grow out of
We come from the same place as all other life down here
Now that I've made the connection I have nothing else to fear


The flesh you grind between your teeth
The blood that falls on farmer's feet
A dagger drawn to kill the calf, drink the milk don the skin
Hen debeaked and farmed for eggs when she runs dry we eat her legs
A worm is a bird is a dog is a man
It's all the same
Organic cycle before life began
It's all the same, exactly the same
Lifeform


Bury my body so I may return to the land I love
Break down my body in to the soil for green grass to grow out of
We come from the same place as all other life down here
Now that I've made the connection I have nothing else to fear
Track Name: Nonzero
*NONZERO


Soft incandescent glow soothes soft-minded slaves,
still chained yet never thought of questioning
their myopic rose-tinted lens for ancient fairy tales
drop all the nonsense child, for now's the time to evolve


Stare into the sun
Cross the divided line
Cling tight to the truth
Illuminate your mind


Lifeless bodies wash up on the coast, done gasping for breaths not meant to be
Homes underwater giving up the ghost, no mercy as far as the eye can see
This is the dark night of the world's soul, don't expect absolution
Rolling deeper down a blackened hole, resisting evolution
After a decade profiteering from war raped all the land, and they still want more


Stare into the sun
Cross the divided line


No ammunition, no enmity, emerge as one human entity
New great commission, renewed clarity, renounce the illusion of scarcity
Abandon opinion, erase division, cauterize wounds that bleed the earth dry
Natural selection, starving regression, sever the limbs that constrict those who fly


Underground, where we've all been gagged and bound
Underground, ignorance resounds
Underground, I'm not coming back around
Underground, once lost but now found


Abandon opinion, erase division, cauterize wounds that bleed the earth dry
Natural selection, starving regression, sever the limbs that constrict those who fly


Transcend the creeds
Unlock the chains
Abolish the law
Baptize in light
