01. The Bitter End

When time resets, we all become zero.
Decimals apart, take us back to the start.
Tear down the walls, that were built to divide.
Can you feel that fire growing?
We're standing on the edge of the event horizon,
Moments before the Earth starts to flatline.


02. Alpha Omega

Son of god, Hangman's pawn.
Control our lives
With fairtytales and shallow lies.
You say we'll burn in hell.
Spiteful preacher, I know you well.
Desperation breathes and follows you home,
Look around, you're not alone.
One life and one chance, the world in front of me.
Intelligent design, sending shivers down my spine.
Cells mutate and divide,
what a sadistic intention.
No light, no dark. No up's, no downs.
I'll find peace, buried in the ground.
The lights go out, the fuse has blown,
No heaven or hell to bring me home.
Another division to tear us apart.
Try fill that hole inside your heart.
Sun of god, sun in the sky.
If you could speak, I'm sure you'd say:
"There's more to me than meets the eye."
Let me say my decency comes from inside.
Just human heart, a decent mind,
We all slip up from time to time.


03. These Colours Don't Run

These streets aren't pave with gold
Don't believe everything that you're told
Deception hides in all you see
Corruption hides in the air that you breathe
And in the land of the free
You know nothing comes for free
Fourth drive in paradise
Vapid souls check the market price
Lifetime slave living in a suburban grave
If there was a god you, was a god
You would be the death of him
These colours don't run like colour from the face
Eyes roll back chemical despair
It's true what they say
Life isn't fair
So repeat this line
Everything, everything is fine
So repeat this line
Everything, everything is fine
These colours don't run like colour from the face
Eyes roll back chemical despair
It's true what they say
Life isn't fair
And in the land of the free
You know nothing comes for free
I'm struggling to find any poetry in this
Someone beat me to the line ignorance is bliss
So I guess I'll just say it how it is
You had it all you fucking pigs

These streets aren't pave with gold
Don't believe everything that you're told
Deception hides in all you see
Corruption hides in the air that you breathe


04. Daybreak

Navigation in nautical twilight,
Separation from what we know is right.
The wind was taking us in the wrong direction,
It's about time we showed some disaffection.
Carry the weight of thousands of years.
Turn the page, let's make it all disappear.
We've had enough of inhibited progression,
Held back by cloak and dagger oppression.
We're insulting our own intelligence.
I won't listen without any evidence.
I'll live my life in the name of no one.
Bow your head, palm to palm,
Worship here in this cerebral cathedral.
As day breaks, the sunlight heals,
As day breaks, the light reveals.
These chains that we've been living in,
How easily we've been giving in.
Now she'd this skin, let change begin.
As day breaks, the sunlight heals,
As day breaks, the light reveals.
Navigation in nautical twilight,
Separation from what we know is right.
It feels to me like this boat is sinking,
Weighed down by rational thinking.
Light begins to pierce the distance.
Solar dawn, relieve the friction.
Blue hours quicken the pulse.
Upon the upper edge, reality dawns.


05. Truth, Be Told

Raging waters flood the valleys of our mind.
The torrent washed the warning signs.
Swim through the one's and zero's,
So hard to tell the villains from heroes.
What if they say isn't true?
What if they want isn't best for you?
Washed up, face down on digital shores.
Lungs contract, now dive back in for more.
Are you sitting on the edge of your seat?
"We'll be right back, don't move an inch"
Static mirror, life isn't black and white.
I understand it's hard to chose what's right.
Whiteout swallows us all.
Once snow-blind, we won't care at all.
Tunnel vision,
Hearts beats in time.
Rhythmic contractions
Drowning in a flood of distractions.
I want to wake up and find a world in remission,
Free from the grasp of the human condition.
But we're all trapped inside static screens,
Trained from birth just to nod and agree.
I don't want to believe,
That we'll be forever, fast asleep.


06. Even If You Win, You're Still A Rat

our life is ending one minute at a time
Check the clock and stand in line.
Hibernate, till your life's passed you by.
Please stop living like you're waiting to die.

Keep up, keep up,
Don't get left behind
Don't slip up, slip up
Chase that finish line
They don't want you believing
that your life deserves a meaning.

Weary souls, trying to forget.
That we're all puppets with a lifetime debt.

What a feeling, built to break,
Happiness with an expiry date.
Please stop living like you're waiting to die.

Stitched into our lives
Drained until we expire.
Weary soul's trying to forget
That we're all puppets with a lifetime debt.

Keep two eyes on that intangible finish line.
In this race we're all reduced to vermin.


09. Devil's Island

This is your country, this is your home,
Here is the house where you grew up alone.

The city streets, you used to love,
Are bruised and broken are black and blue.
On our TV's, miles away.
On our doorsteps with no reason why.

Take it back.
This is your country, this is your home,
Here is the house where you grew up alone.
Remember this, remember this for what it was.
Remember this,
Take it back.
You want a voice, but your voices sound like violence.
You don't, you don't deserve this life,
You don't, you don't deserve this.

This is your country, this is your home,
Here is the house where you grew up alone.
Remember this, remember this for what it was,
Oh, a bleak projection of absent minds.

You want a voice, but your voices sound like violence.
You shout so loud but all I hear is silence.
The city streets that you show no love are bruised and broken,
Because of you.

This is your country, this is your home,
Here is the house where you grew up alone.
Remember this, remember this for what it was.


11. Unbeliever

Our story began in the heart of a star.
We've lost our way, forgotten what we are.
We are only particles in motion.
Floating through space, what a destructive race.
Look at this life as a grain of sand, the blink of an eye, a world in your hands.
Thinking, feeling, surviving, believing
In what we think is right, refract distorted light.
You helped build this fire inside of me.
Breathing fire won't burn down the borders,
Set against everything that came before us.
All those things that you despise,
We all see through human eyes.
There is no side to choose, bound together, we all win or all lose.
Look at this life as a grain of sand,
The blink of an eye, a world in your hands.
Life is so short.
Take a moment to feel alive.
I know all we meant was to expand and to thrive.
But we sharpened our claws and we went to war.
With ourselves, with each other, with the rich and with the poor.
With anyone different, who believes in less or more.
Step out of the shadow, cast by left and right wings.
Take refuge in each other and the triumph that it brings.
Since we stood on two feet, we've been worth so much more.
Now tear down the walls, that were built to divide,
It's time to extinguish that fire inside.
