Track Name: Correct
CORRECT
A path in the woods
A field full of crop
The need for a cop
Food in a shop
A thief in a store
A fool with a tool
A gun that is cool
A love that has rules
Correct…

A grave that’s a home
A game in the park
A shot to the heart
A war that is art
A word carved in stone
A fact that’s not true
A mass with no clue
It’s not up to you
Correct…

I fail to grip your broken heart
We will survive; we won’t fall apart
Unless we fear
Unless we choose to stay in the dark
Open your eyes
Can’t you see that it’s not so correct?
Track Name: Genesis
GENESIS
There was no compromise
And no regard for rules
You were not satisfied
You didn't realize
I'd put the blame on you
It was your appetite

Stop acting like you know everything
Stop acting like you own everything
Stop acting like you know everything

You tried to steal the prize
The one you could not reach
You didn't realize
You sought the thought divine
The one I would not teach
And now we're on the line

Stop acting like you know everything
Stop acting like you own everything
Stop acting like you know everything

You tried to see the light
It wasn't yours to see
And now we're going to die.
Track Name: You Look Good
YOU LOOK GOOD
Our words all sold as commodities
They copyright and brand our oddities
What to say what to see what to ask for
Or is the message just planted in our mind?

We’re going down down down
You can feel it all around
It’s like a hug hug hug
That grabs you like a drug
And it will throw you in the air
As if you’re not really there and the shrug:
“You only look good when you’re looking at me
You only look good when I tell you
to stick your head in the ground
There is nothing to see
Stick your head in the ground if you want to be free,
You only look good when you’re looking at me”.
Track Name: Work
WORK
It’s time to go to work again
And I don’t even care that we’re full of stock
It’s been like this since god knows when
And if I don’t work I go into shock

I don’t need the government
I don’t need to please “the man”
I’m a slave by my own command

But I’m so tired now
And why should I bite more than I can chew
It’s quite stupefying how
I wasted all this time pleasing god knows who

I don’t need the government
I don’t need to please “the man”
I’m a slave by my own command
Yes it’s true, but so are you

I don’t need the government
I don’t need to please “the man”
I won’t be a slave by my own command
Yes, it’s true, and neither should you
Track Name: Babylon Babies
BABYLON BABIES
Come and feed it extra extra baby
Don’t try to keep it down
Build the tower of Babylon babies
Build the tower now…
Let’s build that tower tonight

Speak to me in words now darling
Come and show me how
We’ll destroy the world now darling
Come and feed it; come and seed it now

We’re half way to the heavens baby
We are the lords of the sky
A phallic symbol of man’s decline baby
Oh, what a gorgeous decline…
We’ll burn the heavens tonight
We are all Babylon babies
We are all gone
Track Name: Different Flow
DIFFERENT FLOW
You just think you're in control
And so it comes to this
See the one forget the whole
All for one and none for all

There's a different flow
And it's time we find it
Somehow we always seem to run away
And hind behind it
There's a different flow

More and more you're on your own
And still you're willing
To give up your life but not your thrown
All for one and on and on

There's a different flow
And it's time we find it
Somehow we always seem to run away
And hide behind it
There's a different flow
And we've got to find it
Cause we hit a different low
Track Name: Detrimental
DETRIMENTAL
Look all around
You can't see the ground
We've made so many things
And now nothing is found
Stare at your screen
Do you know what it means?
You're like a coin for a vending machine

Accidental? Instrumental?
We are part of the crime as long as we obey
Detrimental, Influential
Will we all stand by?

If you do all the math
You might stray off the path
And on the way
You'll find the meaning of wrath
So salute to your king
But do you know what it means?
Is he the one that's feeding all of your dreams?

Accidental? Instrumental?
We are part of the crime as long as we obey
Detrimental ties; Influential lies
Will we all stand by
And then just fade away?

And it seems like we're alive
Yeah, it seems like we're alive
It only seems like we're alive
Track Name: Your Thirst
YOUR THIRST
You’ll think but you won’t know
You’ll sink but you won’t show
Your thirst will drown your tears
And everything that’s near

You remain pure while I scream

You guard but can’t protect
You suck but can’t reject
Your thirst will drown your tears
And everything that’s near

You remain pure while scream
Track Name: Innocent Fraud
INNOCENT FRAUD
Cherry Coke, super heated
Ego sucked, flipped, laid out flat and defeated
Open pores, like umbrellas
Side effects of speeding cars and random toxic killers
Come and sit inside of me
Neon eyelids, fluorescent grin
Candy apple with a toddlers tooth trapped within
White as snow, cherry red
Can't you see there's a fucking bomb in my head?
Come and sit inside of me

Evil joke, just committed
Innocent fraud executed and admitted
Price of pain, all inflated
The humdrum of a mind who's boring and sedated
Come and sit inside of me
Diamond teardrops, fought and earned
Celebrate grief like a flame that danced and burned
Hopes are hanging, by a thread
They come together as a fucking bomb in my head
Come and sit inside of me
Got myself addicted to uncertainty
Come and sit here inside of me
Track Name: Life Support
LIFE SUPPORT
Run, picking up the pieces one by one
Turn to dust, letting go of everything I trust
Bread and games, entertain me till I go insane
Crash and burn, set it all aside and try to learn

Plug into this life support
I don’t want to choose and sort
Dig into this master plan, come on over

Raise a flag; even if it’s white it’s all I have
Raise a toast, we are not humanity; we’re ghosts

Plug into this life support
I don’t want to choose and sort
Dig into this master plan, come on over

If parallels exist
Then take me to the one where people never speak
I want to see another option
Maybe they just look confused
And maybe words are not what they would use
They have another option
Something more from which to choose
Something hidden by our rules

I don’t need this form of life support.
