Track Name: Broken Wills
Broken wills slowly kill us
Demoralized by the righteous

New song, some old line
Gettin’ fucked is the paradigm
In early, out late
Slow death, sit and wait

Make do, make nice
Another sheep to sacrifice

Eat shit, keep on grinning
Full tank but the wheels are spinning
Passed over, laid off
Still lined up at the trough

Something tells me there’s more than this
A higher plane of consciousness
Free thought, free will
Keep moving, don’t stand still
Track Name: Dark Side of the Swoon
Oh this world's on a wire
Can we find reality
At the mercy of desire
Lost in worlds of fantasy

Are we what we seem
Or just what know
Will this make believe
Be our undertow

Imagery of light
Otherwise blackness
Fumble in the night
To find our matches

Forest for the trees
With a hollow glow
Real or make believe
We may never know

The fire keeps burning
Deep inside hearts are yearning
No human connections
We've displaced our affections
Track Name: Benevolent One
Subjects lined up by the chains
All but one options remains
Insulin overload
No grocery store even close
Priorities left to question
Loyal pawns not even mentioned
Line up at the trough to get your fill

Suffer benevolent ones
Cause we’ve only scratched the surface of the crisis
You think you’re safe, above the fray
Your children’s children pay the price one day

Cesspool of this toxic waste
Designed to tempt, a thrill to taste
Pump the grease in to the mall
Ten dollars for a vegetable
Price is low but the cost is steep
Mass produced for the herds of sheep
Genetically modified swill

Discover the truth
No one’s gonna show it to you
Fear not the experience
Blinded by convenience
Track Name: Evolve To Destroy
Out of the ocean, on to the sand
Evolve to destroy, swallow the land
Potential for profit, comes into view
Human's next rest stop, shiny & new

Drill down deep, how far will you go
Piss on me, and tell me it's raining
So many lose, so few are gaining

We will bleed ourselves
Black on the insides
Cheap thrills from horoscopes
Black holes for star signs

No need for answers, enjoy the show
Bullshit in, leads to bullshit out
Money trumps all, no shadow doubt

Destroy the planets, destroy the stars
Destroy the Earth, destroy the Mars
Destroy the nears, destroy the fars
Destroy the future, destroy what's ours
