01. Carriers Of The Plague

Music & lyrics by Joe Haley
On the throne of the elite
Shunning the deviates, so proud and holy
You would always fall
Never to remember the gloating

Holding a skeleton key - key to salvation
It was only time that stood in the way

Of the great revelation
Where science and the spirit collide
A crossroad leading to the same answer:

One and the same
A fact that shattered the illustrious grandeur
You so forcefully shared
Carriers of the plague!!!

This living contradiction sparked
An organic deterioration never witnessed

Originating from within
You carried the plague to your flock
Bodies in rejection,
Slowly ridding the filth

Purged of their very essence
It was you who turned them caustic, infecting them,
Confusing them with this horrid sentence

No longer whole
Lamenting what you all once were
The simple ways gone
In its place an uncertain destiny

This science fact turning you into a fraud
You should have never tampered with your core
Genetics would always succumb
Under the weight of the human repression
Carriers of the plague


02. Forward To Submission

Music & lyrics by Joe Haley
On a once worn path
Struggle for significance
Night and day all the same
Stories told inspire change

Of this gracious fortune
Sacrifices to be made
Dignity and unity
For some shall fade to grey
Great wars and conflicts
Seem a daily monotony
As some struggle within
Destined to be enslaved

Broken down
Wrapped in chains

Belief the only way forward
All beaten to submission

Taking a glance to the other side
Though the deceptive lies
As the ages move forward
No one knows what is true or false
But its secrets must be stored
No matter what the cost

Questions keep arising
Contradictions always apparent
Always telling lie after lie
Covering up on the highest level
Security can't be breached
Too many people have their hands in this purse
What will become
These forceful tyrants have their minions walking

Brainwashed fools
Stagger streets like zombies
These alien beings
Rule this world with a book

A plan 2000 years old
Taking longer than ever imagined
But still won't ever give up
Human kind much stronger than first thought
Summons power to question
Things without sufficient evidence
But still won't ever give in
Too many years have been spent on this


03. Euphorinasia

Music & lyrics by Joe Haley
Lost - you take comfort in lies
For this a grave mistake for
These times
In gathered diluted thoughts
Past comprehensions
From signs

Such came from knowledge
Of an inclement state of
Periodic euphoria
Once found can never return

So it once was lost in
Realms of wayward plains
Now is time for research
Comfort once, now in such shame

In time - effects of this device
Taken over lengths of time will deny
Once sane minds
Will be corrupted by
Delusions of
An unforgiving day

This is: what was then
Time cannot stand still
So it: now become
So what have I become

So it once was lost in
Realms of wayward plains
Now is time for research
Comfort once, now in such shame


04. The Throne Of Kings

Music & lyrics by Joe Haley
Thrones waged upon blood
The march is never ending
Victor unknown
Endless power struggle

Who comes with me
Marching forward to the unknown depths
Who stakes a claim
The legion's word shall live forever
Destination unknown
Like an epidemic take these lands by storm
Breaking their wills
Convert them to the word of the kings

Thrones waged upon fear
Follow the words from before us
Who knows right from wrong
Further we fall down this hole

Led on this path
Bodies broken
Cause yet unknown
Fighting for what reason
Slipping into
Grip from beyond
This tyrant needs blood
Stripped of moral dignity

Questions can't be answered
This life is not for me
Why can't they see what we see
Greed is all they need
Conflict hides the real needs
Fame and fortune he seeks
Unacceptable losses of life

Thrones waged upon fear
Follow the words from before us
Who knows right from wrong
Further we fall down this hole

Who comes with me
Marching forward to the unknown depths
Who stakes a claim
The legion's word shall live forever
Destination unknown
Like an epidemic, take these lands by storm
Breaking their wills
Convert them to the word of the kings


05. Unmasking The Traitors

Music & lyrics by Joe Haley
Treachery - seeking pleasure in mournful eyes
You never know what is round the corner
Lurking in depths lies a fateful karma
Creeping upon you like a spiteful plague
Taking you down further disposition
No one to help you fucked up everything
Lavation that is installed upon us
Once come in waves now a hoarded wealth

Covered with lies
I never thought it would come to this
The desperation
I never thought it would be like this

Tried to bribe us
With feeble aggregations
Some fell for it
But most saw through it

Deception - and the rate is rising
Hatred toward you only growing stronger
Pretentiousness you never knew the other side
Pain inflicted only fuels our anger

Tried to bribe us
With feeble aggregations
Some fell for it
But most saw through it

In this day and age your intentions will fail
The greed and corruption will come into dismay
Coming in forward we reach for the facts
These hidden fortunes will be illuminated

Now is time for a change
No hope left for us now


06. Become The Cult

Music & lyrics by Joe Haley
Slithering unchecked between worlds
Such desperation, sickening to see
A serpent masquerading as a prophet
Blind... Directionless... Lost

We all came forth
Excited and enthralled

Fooled: one and all
Welcomed by the mass
We praised every word
Copied every act

Join us
Follow us
Become us
Spread our word

Hate them, control them
Despise them, change their word

Join the cult
Become the cult

A hunger for control
The thirst to convert
Hidden by our hope, buried by our dreams
We believed the spoken word

The rhetoric of the blind
Prophetic rants so insane
Gullible, we get what we deserve
Flame in hand, marching onwards
A self made prophet setting the world alight

Our home in ruins, we are torn and tattered
Never graced by a backwards glance
Flame in hand marching onward


07. From Scribe To Ashes

Music & lyrics by Joe Haley
The pen is mightier than the sword
Yet we burnt the paper that we needed
The flames alluring... high on destruction
Writings and teachings turned to ashes

Ironic - foolish
Left to write with only a blade
Etchings were created

Carved for aeons within man
Amazed by its elegance
It easily seduced us
To submission

In our beds we had our throats slit
A collective massacre of will and reason

Outsmarted by the stupid
The enlightened blinded by light
Were part of the cult
Forever lambs to the slaughter
Elements of old remain
But polluted by the new
Continuing to taint the truth

The few who strive are scorned
The scorned who believe
Are condemned
An appalling state of man


08. Deprivation

Music & lyrics by Joe Haley
Thoughts are not
So easily subdued
Look through these eyes
Things in your mind
Easily destroy you
Come with me

The pain of things once done
Shall never be taken back
The strive for better being
Personality of man
Can never be understood
Why self-destruction

Destruction - imminent
You know you cannot win
The more that you fight
The stronger the urges get
To cause self failure
Never winning this game in your head

What is this chaos inside me
So hard to believe that it's me
It's a driving force that's beneath me
The way out I can't possibly see

Forced deprivation of idealistic thoughts
The cause of what is inclement to me
Take a step forward to no return
Put down by force no more oppression

Intrepid state in violation
You'll be back it's so easy to see
2 steps forward yet 3 steps back
Cannot win such oppression

Thoughts are not
So easily subdued
Look through these eyes

I know, you know what is coming around
This is habit
Don't say I won't, this is just lies
Lying to yourself

Thoughts are not
So easily subdued
Look through these eyes
Things in your mind
Easily destroy you
Come with me


09. The Sleepers Have Awoken

Music & lyrics by Joe Haley
Bounded since birth
To a master never revealed
I have been enslaved
Hidden beneath a deep cosmic veil
Flickers of reason, clouded by doubt
Truths that lay dormant
Now remembered

A crisis ensuing within my mind
Conflicting duality, illogical reality
Everything once known is wrong
Denial, despair, desperation
I can not make this insanity stop

A sleeper has awoken
...Awake! A sleeper no more!
Validation... vindication...
For a once fraudulent life
Seeing the 5 universal laws are really 8

Eating away at a once 'sane' mind
This reality is coming to an end
You cannot ignore the truth,
And the truth will set you free...
This is what I have always been told
This is what I always believed

A sleeper has awoken
...Awake! A sleeper no more!
Validation... vindication...
For once a fraudulent life
Seeing the 5 universal laws are really 8

My new knowledge, our new power
We are now in control

New senses awake, a species reborn
Nothing can stand in our path

Life now balanced, minds set free
We were not ready for this...
A knowledge so true, so pure; it poisons us

The body can't keep such knowledge contained
Our only way to survive
Cast away all reason
Smart enough to know
We aren't smart enough for this...
