01. Shock

Music & lyrics by Fear Factory
Welcome to my world
Headfirst to the Earth
With my sights on the
God damned kill switch

I've become a fuse
Charged with attitude
Fixed and dilated
By my anger

I have become a... direct
I have become a... current
I have become a... direct
I have become... insurgent

I will be the power surge
Shock to the system
Electrified, amplified
Shock to the system

Alternate my wires
Heat my core desire
I will not stand for
Condemnation

I've become the volts
To lead the revolt
Fuck with me ensues
Certain danger

I have become a... direct
I have become a... current
I have become a... direct
I have become... insurgent

I will be the power surge
Shock to the system
Electrified, amplified
Shock to the system

I am the power surge
I am the insurgent
Electrified, amplified
Electrified, amplified

Shock!


02. Edgecrusher

Music & lyrics by Fear Factory & DJ Zodiac
Conceived in a hell
Beyond your depth of perception
Chaotic case
Of conquering domination

Psychopath snaps
Fired chains of imprisonment
A bludgeoning force
That's undermining the government

Inflict strain upon the structure
Collapsing below my pressure
Inflict strain upon the structure
Collapsing below my pressure

Break of the Edgecrusher...

The purist, non-conformist,
Jaded subhuman terrorist
From flesh to steel and blood
To blade I fight to exist

A rival of justice,
Extreme rush of hatred
Survival in a twisted world
Where nothing is sacred

Inflict strain upon the structure
Collapsing below my pressure
Inflict strain upon the structure
Collapsing below my pressure

Break of the Edgecrusher.


03. Smasher/Devourer

Music & lyrics by Fear Factory
Fear me not but fear my hell
Man made me so I could kill

Praise me in the name of war
I destroy both rich and poor

I am the way,
Prepare for salvation
I am the way,
Prepare for salvation

Strength in time of suffering
Man alone is a weakling

Ascension is what you ask
I will be the fall of man

I am the way,
Prepare for salvation
I am the way,
Prepare for salvation

Salvation...

Those of you who dare to stray
I will tear your mind away
Those of you who dare to stray
I will take your life away

Salvation...

I am the way,
Prepare for salvation
I am the way,
Prepare for salvation

Salvation...


04. Securitron (Police State 2000)

Music & lyrics by Fear Factory
Invade and encompass
To judge and dissect
Witness and persecute
To serve and protect

To serve, and protect to serve
To serve, and protect to serve

Watchful and aware,
Constrain every movement
Admit the consequences,
Freedom's an illusion

Where is security
Governed through scrutiny?
Your privacy denied,
Organized and confined!

No place to hide!
No place to hide!

There is no place to hide
Plugged in your mind
Conformed design

To concede your rights
Concede your mind
Surrender to authority

"All must abide and all must adhere"
Future oppression becoming more clear
This is a warning so you must take heed
This coming vision is reality

Where is security
Governed through scrutiny?
Your privacy denied,
Organized and confined!

No place to hide
No place to hide...


05. Descent

Music & lyrics by Fear Factory
Falling victim from neglect
Designed thoughts and intellect
Forgotten and displaced
The crux of my dismay

I feel nothing
I am nothing
I feel nothing
Nothing

How deep I descend?
Until I reach my end?
How deep I descend?

Deeper into this abyss
Weighted down and sinking fast
Life did not offer me
More than false destiny

I feel nothing
I am nothing
I feel nothing
Nothing

How deep I descend?
Until I reach my end?
How deep I descend?

I am nothing
I feel nothing
I am nothing
I feel nothing
Nothing

Nothing...

How deep I descend?
Until I reach my end?
How deep I descend?


06. Hi-Tech Hate

Music & lyrics by Fear Factory
These weapons of mass destruction
Around our world, threat to us all!
Operated by fears, cold over years
Systematic death, terminal breath!

Leaders of our time just stand behind
An arsenal to end us all!
Fighting a war, we can't ignore
Destined to fall, cowards to all!

We are losing,
Weapons controlling
This is the hour
Of your reckoning

These weapons of mass destruction
Around our world, threat to us all!
Fighting a war, we can't ignore
Destined to fall, cowards to all!

We are losing,
Weapons controlling
This is the hour
Of your reckoning

No more arsenal threatens all
Heading for a downfall
Mass destruction, mass destruction
Mass destruction for all.


07. Freedom Or Fire

Music & lyrics by Fear Factory
How can you accept
Social suppression
This weak state of mind
In our time

I demand release
From hypocrisy
I'd rather die than be
Held down, forced down

Freedom or fire!

I'm on the threshold
Of revolution
I'd rather burn than be
Held down, forced down

Freedom or fire!

Unrestrained determination
Set ablaze for liberation

Locked in chains
Of this sovereignty
Let me be 'cause I
Long to be

Free! Free!

Unrestrained determination
Set ablaze for liberation

Set ablaze
Set ablaze

Freedom or fire!


08. Obsolete

Music & lyrics by Fear Factory
Nothing is the way it seems
Discerning man from machines now

Dominate as to erase
Wiping man off Earth's face now

Defaced by all inept justice
Shamed by the mental abuses
Branded "inferior weakness"
Ordered to cease and to desist!

Man is obsolete!
Our world, obsolete!
Man is obsolete!
Erased, extinct!

Obsolete!

Fueling engines through deceit
To eradicate humanity

Defaced by all inept justice
Shamed by the mental abuses
Branded "inferior weakness"
Ordered to cease and desist!

Man is obsolete!
Our world, obsolete!
Man is obsolete!
Erased, extinct!

Obsolete!


09. Resurrection

Music & lyrics by Fear Factory
Consumed with memories
That preceded today
Given a chance to bereave
Life that's slipping away

Suffered through tragedy
Of my slow decay
Deceptive tendencies
Dragged my soul away

All that I know
There was no God for me
Force that shatters all,
Absence of mortality

Revive all my fears
Revive wasted tears
Revive void withing
Revive once again...

Forsaken by destiny,
Forsaken by my own mind
I must remove my skin
To see belief in your eyes

All that I know
There was no God for me
Force that shatters all,
Absence of humanity

Revive all my fears
Revive wasted tears
Revive void withing
Revive once again...

Reach for the sky
Touch the sky
Revive a hope
For mankind.


10. Timelessness

Music by Fear Factory
Lyrics by Burton C. Bell, Rhys Fulber & Dino Cazares
"There is a time when the operation
Of the machine becomes so odious,
Makes you so sick at heart,
That you can't take part;

You can't even passively take part,
And you've got to put your bodies
Upon the gears and upon the wheels,
Upon the levers, upon all the apparatus,
And you've got to make it stop.

And you've got to indicate
To the people who run it,
To the people who own it,
That unless you're free,
The machine will be prevented
From working at all!"
[Mario Savo, 1964]



I've felt darkness
Closing in on me
Chilling shadows
Surrounding me

I've had the poison
Leak into my skin
And it corroded
My heart away

Bled away
Cut away

Dark night of my soul.


11. Cars

Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
It's the only way to live
In cars

Here in my car
I can only receive
I can listen to you
It keeps me stable for days
In cars

Here in my car
Where the image breaks down
Will you visit me please?
If I open my door
In cars

Here in my car
I know I've started to think
About leaving tonight
Although nothing seems right
In cars


12. 0-0 {Where Evil Dwells}

Long live the new flesh!

Where evil dwells
Northport, L.I.
Mutilation murder
Grisly sacrificial slaughter
Knights of the black circle
Stabbed him in the woods
At the sound of crow-call
He said, "I love thee, Satan"
Half-burnt body found
Buried in a shallow grave
Stabbed him in the throat
Stab!

Kasso killer... long live the new flesh

Where evil dwells
Northport, Long Island
Mutilation murder
Grisly sacrificial slaughter
Forsake your homosexuality
Half-burnt body found

Kasso killer... long live the new flesh
Kasso killer... long live the new flesh

Where evil dwells
Northport Long Island
Half-burnt body found
Naked in a leather mask
Mutilation murder

Kasso killer... long live the new flesh
Kasso killer... long live the new flesh

Long live the new flesh
Long live the new flesh

Long live the new flesh
Long live the new flesh

Long live the new flesh
Long live the new flesh


13. Soulwound

A tortured whipping dog defiled
Stalked by oblivion and denial
Scarring lacerations
Hopeless devastation

The cuts, cut deeper
The cuts, cut deeper
The cuts, cut deeper, deeper, deeper

These wounds are small slices of death
Draining my soul and final breath
Self-inflicted dementia
Bone shallow gravedigger

The cuts, cut deeper
The cuts, cut deeper
The cuts, cut deeper, deeper, deeper

Soulwound
Soulwound
Soulwound
Soulwound

Soulwound
Soulwound
Soulwound
Soulwound

Soulwounds I can not conceal
These wounds are so hard to heal

A tortured whipping dog defiled
Stalked by oblivion and denial
Scarring lacerations
Hopeless devastation

The cuts, cut deeper
The cuts, cut deeper
The cuts, cut deeper, deeper, deeper


14. Messiah

Messiah...

Forced down and forced out


15. Concreto

Hammer down
The sickness
Wipe it out
Of existence

Cut down corruption
Cut down infection
Scrape down
Wipe out

Concrete
Concrete
Concrete
Concrete

Hammer down
The sickness
Wipe it out
Of existence

Scrape down
Wipe out
Cut down
