Track Name: Blind Leading The Lifeless
Prepare me for the future
With their fake humanity
You're left to believe in nothing
Except perceived reality

They feed me, you won't lead me
Why won't you break for sanity?
Divided, questions, soulless....

One time, two times, three times and I pray to fade away

Why can't you see this, feel for the lifeless?
Saviours are no longer here to be found
I see the racist, feel the injustice, safe...
Here I cast my judgement to the ground
I hope you burn in your hell

Create a post about nothing
No substance, just insanity
You try to look like someone
Amongst your group of angst and teens

Just give me five seconds and l’ll bleed you to your fucking knees
I speak for the majority

Don’t’ give me a reason to hate
You’ve just given me a reason to hate
Track Name: Little People
Wake up!

Some little people, some little people need to fuck
Some little people, stupid people need to wake up
Why can't you show me signs of life dignified?

Lies,
You won't break me
Pride,
You sodomise your enemy
My,
Life, less insanity
I'm crucified

The media manipulate the horrors they report and you call this freedom

Hide amongst the people, hide amongst the people so you fuck
Hide amongst the people now the people start to wake up
You can't tell me that I am satisfied

Through the eyes of the pain and the misery
I wonder if this time she’ll wait for me
So breathe, you won’t break me
Concede, you won’t break me
To bleed is killing me…

Pride among the people, pride among the people and now they stop
Pride among the people now the people need to fuck up
I’ll feed you signs of my lies now magnified
Track Name: Numbers
The numbers seem to count, I just don't want to be
A thread that might run out, are just anomalies
My girls are all that count, I just don't want to be
Why can't I just be free, I want to beat it down

Stick it, eat it and beat it down, down, down

A new lease on life, you're just ahead of me
I strive to fight the knife, you're just ahead of me
I'll win and I'll take pride, you're just ahead of me
You want to play with me, I want to beat it down, down, down

When you’re hear with me, I feel alone
When I cannot take anymore, I break down all my walls
To it all
To it all

My mind just can't run free, you are the strength I need
A bend in time will ease, you are the strength I need
You know you are my life, you are the strength I need
It's all ahead of me, my strength will set me free

The numbers seem to count
The numbers seem to count
The numbers seem to count
And I can't take it anymore
Track Name: General Justification
You take my hand, I slide up your thigh
One wrong move, I throw it away
Sultry, blue eyes, in disguise
If I break your gaze, you fade to grey

Your eyes they take the world away from me
Your eyes they take the world from yesterday
When I am with you walls seem to fade
A memory in time, within the game

You take my arm, forget how to breathe
Another shot and I've flown so far away
One's general warning, through jealous eyes
If I play I'll lose this game my way

You dirty dog, I caught you cheating
You fucked our lives, I'm broken hearted and for what little dick, yeah?
Down in my hole I feel like I have cheated
You son of a bitch I caught you out now die in your own filth yeah?
Track Name: Wash It Away
10 days and 5 years
Through torment, blood, sweat, tears
I drift through the torment the torture the passion the river that guides us
10 days and 5 years
Through torment, blood, sweat, tears
Our passion erodes us away
I'm bleeding and seething, through glass skies, we're fleeting, your memory enlightens our way
Don't take this all away

Been here for too long
Wash it away
I've been here for too long like this
Why you walking away from me?
I feel like I can breathe
Wash it away
I feel like I am free like this
Why you walking away from me?

You stand here with half cheers,
The girl says 'Where next dear'?
Your dick jumps and leads you away from the aura that we're all displaying
You stand here with half cheers,
The girl says 'Where next dear'?
Your dick jumps and leads you away
I say fuck you and fuck me we're all shit I don’t care
Our passion erodes us away
Don't take this all away
Track Name: Pantomime
I'm caught in this pantomime
I feel like I've lost my mind
I will make you pay in time
I feel like it's beginning to end and I'm beginning

Your scars I discard and I've lost all nerve feeling
You try to take guard but nobody is healing
What will retard is resentment and bleeding
Again and again and again I just need it

Pray for us
I feel like it's beginning to end
For love, this time
Why won't you....

I pity the feeble mind
Strength is what's learnt in time
A hero just cast in mime
I feel like it's beginning to end and I'm beginning

Down in my hole where nobody can see it
I slit my minds throat and I can’t seem to heal it
She holds all the cards, my heart no longer feels it
Again and again and again I just need it

Don't you feel it, it's not real
Don't you hate me, have you forgot your spiel
I'm not worth less, I'm not selfless
I'm protected, it's not real....

What have we learnt this time?
A demonic nursery rhyme
A circle, just space in time
Again and again and again
I'm caught in this pantomime
