Track Name: Out of My Hands
To end world hunger?
Or for more profit?
Food is wasted
Covered in flies

All my choice
Is taken away
Big business
Standing in my way

To end world hunger?
Or for more profit?
Corporations
Feed us lies

All my choice
Is taken away
Big business
Standing in my way

What I see
I don't understand
Lies on the labels
Corrupt obfuscation

Big business
Dominate the shelves
Turn me into
Something else

Human decency dies in the boardroom
But there's an easy solution
Cut the Monsanto execs apart
And wear their skin

To end world hunger?
Or for more profit?
Corporations
Feed us lies

What I see
I don't understand
Lies on the labels
Corrupt obfuscation
Track Name: Never Again
What you do when I'm not around
Guess our friendship doesn't mean shit

I guess those words you said
They were fucking lies

When you said you wouldn't do it
When you said you would be there
Have my back
Cut me some slack

I don't want to see your fucking face again
Track Name: Blindspot
blindspot blindspot
like it's over
like you changed it
blindspot blindspot
like it's over
like you changed it

don't fucking pretend

when I look around, what do I see?
you made a big show but didn't change a fucking thing
while you were patting yourself on the back
the problem brushed by the hairs on your neck

self-congratulation, press tour going well
self-righteous bullshit, see you in hell
and while you were patting yourself on the back...?

blindspot blindspot
act like it's over
act like you changed it
blindspot blindspot
act like it's over
act like you changed it
Track Name: Pretend to Care
conformist conformist
you point your fucking finger
conformist conformist
you can't look in the mirror
look outside yourself
but you can't see within
see something you desire
and you meet it with hatred

draw your conclusion
pretend you don't care

but you're burning inside
just to fit in

you see what we've built
and try to tear it down

you'll soon disappear
But I'll still be around

conformist conformist
you point your fucking finger
conformist conformist
you can't look in the mirror
Track Name: Tomb
You tell me it's my problem to solve
I don't believe that at all
You've made your fucking bed
And it's where you'll be laid to rest

Won't let you drag me down
strap myself to the tracks for you?

You tell me it's my problem to solve
I don't believe that at all
As the train rolls across your chest
This is where you'll be laid to rest
Track Name: The Gate
A shadow looms over our past and future

we traveled through a blood-stained gate

something unsightly inside

Passed on pain with no words to explain


Tragedy birthed me, so how can I live?

Torn from my roots by fear

Foolish pride in what was forced on me

seeking something far out of reach





Was I given this name I bear?

Or was I branded out of sight

Secrets hidden, genealogies erased and denied


I walk through life, legacy unseen

Others can't hide what's etched in their skin

Only so much in common, but this question, it persists





Reminded til the end of eternity

Of what might of been and what can never be

A future, free, never severed


Was I given this name I bear?

Or was I branded out of sight

Piecemeal, the peace we earned, gone in what seems like a flash

And how can we ever get it back?





I walk through life, legacy unseen

Others can't hide what's etched in their skin

Only so much in common, but this question, it persists


Reminded til the end of eternity

Of what might of been and what can never be

A future, free, never severed

History is a nightmare and I have to wake up
Track Name: In a Daze
Fill my ears with nonsense
Invoke nature
But whose nature?

Shackled by language
Between two poles
The limits of human imagination

You tell me it doesn't make sense
Molded the world in your image
Ask questions you've already answered
Order and chaos freely co-exist

Fill my ears with nonsense
Reveal your nature
Not my nature

Shackled by language
Always in pairs
The limits of human knowledge

And when the world starts to bend
You still won't see me clearly
The foundation shakes and falls away
Outside of what once confined us


I speak of these meaningless abstractions
Like freedom, truth, friendship, integrity
We impregnate these symbols with meaning
Beyond the emptiness that they imply
How can I move forward in my existence
When what I hold most dear is inside me
We seek an ideology with words and concepts to fit our daily lives and give us tools to act
What I know is what I think and feel is as good as any truth
And every moment replays again and again and again
At once as tragedy and farce
