Designed for comfort, not control The brighter the smile, the deeper the hole We’ll light the fires that bring the kingdom to the ground We’ll feed the flames of truth, and won’t back down Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown Light a fire To the obituary Forget it happened No need to remind them Strike a match For the departed ones Who left this world behind The decision is blind Fuck your… Design of ease, but nothing free The less you believe, the deeper you see We’ll throw the rocks that bring the churches to the ground We’ll feed the flames of truth, and won’t back down Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown Jesus Christ can’t save you now Eat a slice of holy cow

New Gods 02:27
Dreams of a time that didn’t exist A thinking man, who thinks with his fists Convoy of convolution, placards of hate Take one step backward, then retaliate New gods, same prayers The fantasy that someone cares Gotta learn where to draw the line Polish shit and make it shine Drain the blood and call it wine By the wayside, forgotten again An afterthought you once called friend Ducked reality, square on the chin Collecting losers to feel like a win New gods, same prayers The fantasy that someone cares Gotta learn where to draw the line Polish shit and make it shine Drain the blood and call it wine

Live To Tell 03:11
Twisted forward, one man Lived enough to see life’s not easy Was sure that God would sort the living out Small-minded theories Dysfunctional disarray The signs of disaster I’ll live to tell Save your lies Meet me on the other side Personnel are all the same Flashes of ignorance for fame Let split ends decide Excuses rampant Hysteria comes naturally The signs of disaster I’ll live to tell Save your lies Meet me on the other side Bet your life to believe it credits

"The end is nigh", says a voice of reason Prepare yourself for the culling season A winter's dawn without an ending No escape, no defending Lord have mercy on a dying man If that ain't true, drop me where I stand These are days without summer Death march to a different drummer These are days without sunlight A never-ending winter's night Blackened flesh, stretched and skinned No regret from the voice within Frost bit hands of oily grease No escape, no release These are days without summer Death march to a different drummer These are days without sunlight A never-ending winter's night Lord have mercy on a dying man If that ain't true, drop me where I stand

Keratine 03:24
Indecisive point of no reply Bar coded, categorized Privilege of rights and freedoms squandered By the timeless spineless Conflict of interest greases the wheels Policy moves with a glacial feel Can't stop what you never wanted to see Just make believe Space and time finally collide It’s where you’ll find Keratine Squint as the sun burns in Scratching and clawing out of self doubt Feel the burn as a lesson learned Isn't this supposed to build character Knock the teeth from your mouth Victims of shame Products of doubt Cut the tongue from your throat Victims of fame Products of wealth

A handshake used to mean something Now you're gonna look me in the eye when you lie to me Back slap, faking friendly Got me questioning decisions of heredity Infuriating way with words No clear way to dispel a curse Backstabbed, fed piles of scraps Quick to sell, not built to last Our lives are just a shadow of other life The act of thinking clearly seems not to cross minds Well I hope there's a choice left when the time comes Lives on the run Cadillac daddy making nice with his loan Would live to see the profits blown All the crazyness wouldn't leave him alone Had some help so the fault wasn’t his own OK team now count to 3 We all cash out and split the scene Leave the little guy to fill the seams Our lives are just a shadow of other life The act of thinking clearly seems not to cross minds Well I hope there's a choice left when the time comes Lives on the run Hold on tight on, and I won’t let go Stand and fight, the one thing you know

Equifux 02:52
Deserted face, restless mind A shattered mirror by design Image built from glossy lies Life’s ambitions, advertised Stakes get higher, debts get deep Those pretty things won’t help you sleep Neon lights, in the red No escape for the living dead The dreamer boom up in smoke Swallow shit until you choke Stakes get higher, debts get deep Those pretty things won’t help you sleep My allegiance to borrow This life could end tomorrow

There was a change in the weather There was a change in the sea I promised myself there’d be a change in me In some far off place, in some far off land You’re a distant hope, a grain of sand In the blink of an eye you’re an afterthought Looking back on what I got There was a change in the weather There was a change in the sea I promised myself there’d be a change in me The maiden voyage lost at sea We’re going down and I can hardly see Desperation has attacked From the deepest depths, of the darkest black There was a change in the weather There was a change in the sea I promised myself there’d be a change in me In some far off dream, in some far off plan You’re beside me know, and I’m a better man In the blink of an eye you appeared today In the shadows where you remained There was a change in the weather There was a change in the sea I promised myself there’d be a change in me Down, down, down (I’ll take you!) Down, down, down (I’ll take you!)

Dead Eyes 02:23
You’re witnessing end of days now Next stop post paradise I'm picturing endless spaces Low to the ground and out of site Dead eyes, late night safe Dangerous, wasted life The fishes are panicking now You can't swim in gasoline How will fat cats be feeling With water as our currency Dead eyes, late night safe Dangerous, wasted life Day breaks, dead end nights The arrogance of the fortunate

Modern life is never worth the value Revenue controls your way of life Mercy comes to those who hold the power Commoners battle through the strife Fight! For the victories of tomorrow Fight! For the freedoms of today Fight! For the victories of tomorrow Hand in hand, we’ll find a better way Illusion built to keep us moving forward Treadmill with a carrot on a stick Please sir, can I have some fucking more Get my fill of this dirty trick Fight! For the victories of tomorrow Fight! For the freedoms of today Fight! For the victories of tomorrow Hand in hand, we’ll find a better way There is a fault line A troubled way of life Chip away, but you can’t find tomorrow There is a stop sign A roadblock in your mind Empty eyes getting filled up with sorrow

The Muck 02:41
Shots ring out, the other side of the night Why attempt to be civilized Documents safely kept closed It rips right through them now Can you hear the mob approaching Out of the muck Say it or scream it A love dissolves Under extremes Got himself a facelift Picking rubber out of their eyes Fate evident, cowardice disguised Baffled by humanity Seize the chance to strike Is this what an adventures like? Out of the muck Say it or scream it A love dissolves Under extremes
