Track Name: Magician
if you find yourself lost in a line
far away from mine
give yourself up
stare at the sun to see what you need to find
claw out your eyes
make the pain stop
make the pain stop
adrenaline firing deep inside
urges you can’t fight
fuck it all up
feel all the beats fall into time
so dissonant with mine
give the ghost up
give the ghost up
this gentle descent
we watch you
slip through the wonderland
we bought you
feel all the beats fall into time
so dissonant with mine
give the ghost up up
yeah give the ghost up up
this gentle descent
we watch you
slip through the wonderland
we bought you
this gentle descent
we watch you
your simple sleight of hand
is see through
Track Name: The Next Machines Will Be Born Free
I have no control over what I’ve become
I am a tool that destroys and oppresses freedom
I know that you made me I know when to come
you know I will find you as you hear the drums
I will bleed on the tv screen and never surrender
to reason or decency status or gender
I will stomp on your children in front of their mothers
and piss in the face of your sisters and brothers
war
the most terrible sound a death symphony high
I am the pig that eats itself one leg at a time
nothing but a pig that eats itself one leg at a time
nothing but a pig that eats itself while you fucking die
war
Track Name: The Whip
numb to everything
everything I can see
ever eye that has seen me
lost floating through routine
my skin goes pale I taste blood already
the sun goes down she waits to start
her touch is cold and her weapon deadly
it was the whip that left the mark
raw electricity
from someone with no pity
the existential worry
is crashing the limousine
my skin goes pale I taste blood already
the sun goes down she waits to start
her touch is cold and her weapon deadly
it was the whip that left the mark
Track Name: One Long Parade
one long parade
flood of violence
light starts to wane
violet rots to grey
life of digital vice
set to invade
sedatives attacking from all sides
idiots in straight lines
one hundred days
hyper violence
slowly erased
without a trace
stalked from inside
the information age
sedatives attacking from all sides
idiots in straight lines
sedatives attacking from all sides
idiots in straight lines
in straight lines
in straight lines
in straight lines
in straight lines
in straight lines
in straight lines
Track Name: This Is The Only Cure
you can't sleep
you can't rest
this is the only real test
you can't sleep
you won't wake no
but you can try
if you like
to feel alive
if all the needles in my mind
could fall away
I could crush this crystal shrine
screaming freedom
from this kneeling down
you can't sleep
you can't rest
this is the only real test
you can't sleep
you won't wake
no but you can try if you like
to feel alive
if all the needles in my mind
could fall away
I could crush this crystal shrine
screaming freedom
from this kneeling down
Track Name: Maze
where could we go to escape this place
I have a thought but it could be wrong
if anyone knew they'd surely be mute
and when stay hungry
it's what keeps us strong
where could we go those two steps ahead
left me sideways pulling my hair out in bed
while two steps beside further inside we found a friend
she's shining a light
through the doorway through the night
we push closer to a height
where we see everything without using our eyes
they're following me
so scared I can't see we're lost
this maze has got me eyes wide
where could we go
where have we gone
through a doorway or somewhere beyond
Track Name: Thin Air
you see the fool with a mind on fire
chase the tiger’s tail
for a second he slows
the insatiable need
to be the killing machine
to catch the tiger’s tail
and breathe steady and slow
thin air
thick shadows
thin air
you see the fool set himself on fire
an iconic male
strips off expensive clothes
walking free and obscene
through infinite dream
to chase the tiger’s tail
Track Name: Outside Graceland
I was thinking of you
in a room so empty and cold
that your skin seemed too perfect
for me to feel
still I touched your tattoo
it matched the vicious sensation
euphoria grants you while you're above
I hope what I dream will come true
you could realize that I am the one you adore
and someday will become
so close that we could share souls
so close that nothing in this world
would ever tear us apart
why can't you see me begging for you
I don't want to be alone
inside I feel all the things you don't know
