Track Name: Machine God
Hold your ground, turn around
Face the masses, break your crown

Show your creed, taste your greed
Give them payments, make them breed

Filling space with empty void
Is the world that they destroyed
Spend your time with vanity
Keep them blind, don't let them see

Ignore the stars, keep them dumb
Worship the atomic bomb
Deadly scenes they'll depict
From 2,000 year old manuscripts

Different host, still same shape
A pseudomorphic conjugate
Synthesize all you see
Create your reality

If they wake put them to sleep
A sedative of make believe
Patronize them everyday
Rid them if they misbehave

We know it's a lie but we don't care
Nobody lives from falling
Out of the state of being aware
How do you sleep at night?

Someone laughs and they keep on laughing
Until the day that I surpass them
A staff of a million horseback
Couldn't carry me away

Someone cries and they keep on crying
Until the day that I surpass them
All the lies from these so called leaders
Couldn't carry them away

Share your deepest, darkest secrets
Make the world believe that it's the truth
And when a million dying soldiers
Have all given their lives to you
Burn their carcasses, convince their souls
Tell them that what they did was for bravery
You'll have ten million bleeding soldiers
Who traded truth for fakery

And the tales of the wars
Are the scars that keep reminding us
That the fails of the poor
Have failed to keep defining us
As we take all we can
It proves to show we don't need you
As we tore up your plan
We realized there is no "you"
Track Name: Color of Skin
Everyone knows some people lead and others follow
That's how it goes, they are the shape and we're the shadow
Flesh to flesh, bone to bone
Will they rise or turn to stone?
Man to man, soul to soul
Will they win or lose it all?

Color of skin seen only by distorted eyes
You know its a sin to use a gene as your disguise
White to white, black to black
Will they recreate the past?
Dust to dust, ash to ash
Can they find a way to last?

All that you are comes from a star
You know that we're all God's children
No ones to blame cause we're all the same
Only ourselves can fix this mess

Some people say there's no hope for the race of humans
Maybe someday we'll live above instead of ruins
Young to young, old to old
Will you do what you've been told?
Heart to heart, mind to mind
That's the story of mankind

Is it innate that some people steal and others give?
How could we let some people die and others live?
Night to night, day to day
Will it grow or will it fade?
Eye to eye, hand to hand
This could be our final stand

All that you are comes from a star
You know that we're all God's children
No ones to blame cause we're all the same
Only ourselves can fix this mess

All that you are comes from a star
You know that we're all God's children
No ones to blame cause we're all the same
Only ourselves can fix this mess
Track Name: Greenhead
I've seen the world bend down to view the flames
When they fell into the hole
Carousels and other children's games
I admit, they'll never know

I've seen the Earth condemned by human plague
Only cured by letting go
Another day with love and peaceful ways
I admit, I'll never know

I've seen the place become a toxic waste
Steaming piles of burning coal
In the end it was the worst we faced
And I hope we'll never know
Track Name: Idols and Reason
Oh I've been lost in a daze
Smokin that sweet purple haze
For my brain, it helps me to cope with the pain
Of not knowing how to explain
A false set of truths

No one understands how I feel
Learning the world isn't real
Broke my heart, as I look up at the stars
I wonder if I'm just a part
Of some great machine

Soaring the clouds all alone
For several months I've been stoned
To the ground, Turning my thoughts into sound
And I thank God that I found
My point of view

Oh knowing the truth really hurt
Growing that weed in the dirt
For us all, I turned my back to the wall
And taught the world not to fall
To the unseen

Delusions of grandeur reek havoc on those who aren't taught
We're residual liquid that flows from the chamber of thoughts
When the structure collapses will everything cease to exist?
Will the periodic table of elements surely be missed?

Is it weird to think people are nothing but products of lust?
Or that even this planet was forged by centripetal dust?
I've succumb to dispersion where the past, present, future meet
Like a landslide, stumbling down the hills of deceit

Banished from pondering realities dreams
Cosmic inversions that make me believe I've become
Part of a system that needs me to breath all along

All along I grew up in the dark
Shown faded pictures of art
And told to see detail that I once believed
Would show me things I can't conceive
Now that I feel so relieved, I have become...
Track Name: Numbskull
Do you remember all the things I said?
Do you even know why?
Can you understand all that's in my head?
Can you repeat them back?

Don't change some people just because you can
Just feed them with their fears
So strange that people would rather be a fan
Then lead with their ideas

Have you forgotten every word I said
Have you written it down?
Will you make it an effort to be read?
Will you read it aloud?

We're told the cycle of the gender role
Must be programmed that way
We know religions a form of mind control
Can't speak what we should say

The distortion between the ruling class
And the peasants must be bridged by love
The abortion of our spirit child
Was a present to our future selves

The emotion of composing sound
Wasn't branded in our futile souls
The devotion to a faceless God
Was abandoned by the rise of bane
Track Name: Palindromeda
We paid the sun to kill tomorrow
And at the time we wondered why
Then everyone was filled with sorrow
And all but one chose to cry

So then we swam the plastic ocean
Into the land of poltergeists
A serenade was sung by choirs
To welcome them into the skies

We left the chapter open
And left the writing to your hand
What stuff have you been smoking?
Save some for me
We left the canvas empty
And let your fingers paint the way
The masterpiece you left me
Was not the same

We left the future soundless
And watched your rhythm find the notes
The universe if boundless
Just look and see
We left our home to ruin
Thank God you were there to rebuild
What stuff have you been doing?
My synonym sprang from my guilt

We cast the dead into the fire
And all that was left were molten bones
Our only chance, the one survivor
He abandoned his only home

The aftermath, the sun exploded
So we just kept moving on
Imagine if a supernova
Could actually transform all but one
Track Name: Stoned Queen
All of the time I lay by your side
You can't sleep alone but I can't stay the night
So fight, there's no end in sight
Lets sleep through tomorrow baby
We'll make room to borrow baby

Moan to the wind, you've already sinned
You beg me come but you won't let me in
So fight, there's no end in sight
Let's sleep through tomorrow baby
Lets make love tomorrow maybe

Stoned queen of light, save our souls

You want a man to come around
Even when he's not allowed
To try to fix your broken heart
And if you think it's just a toy
To make a man out of a boy
You're gonna tear his world apart
Another day, another dime
I couldn't stayed another time
I gotta go and get me cleaned
And if you think I'm just a friend
Remember me and then pretend
You''ll never be my little queen

Stoned queen of light, save our souls

Fight, there's no end in sight
Lets sleep through tomorrow baby
We'll make love tomorrow baby
Track Name: Empires
Repopulate but first regrow the flowers
Nurture and care for the seeds
Control the wind but don't abuse the power
Of nature's pulse, beauty is key

Could this be real or just a fate that we run from?
All this I feel is just a taste of whats to come

Preserve the past but don't repeat the history
You're sure to be destined to fail
Humanity is much more than their misery
Make your new system prevail

Could this be real or just a picture in my brain?
All this I feel is just a way to keep me sane

Cause I've wasted a perfect chance to grow
Face it, everything erodes

Brothers, stand up and fight the cruelty of the world
The sickness that you know still resides
Look in my eyes, and show me that the world
Is ready for a phoenix to rise
Then decide if everyone is the same
Then why do we let the victims of pride
Chain your minds, the end of days has yet to come

Could this be real or just a play that's been rehearsed?
All this I feel is just a sanction in reverse

Could this be real or just a hoax that we believe?
All this I feel is just a state of the world's deceit

Cause I've wasted a perfect chance to grow
Face it, everything erodes
Track Name: The Ruins of Tomorrow
Nature pleads to remove us from our own domain
Fill the streets with the droplets of funeral rain
Sold your soul to this touch

Banished from the depiction of classical horror
Truth be told I've been sentenced for asking for more
Sold your soul to this touch

Tell me what you hope to find
While traveling through space and time
Windows up, instead there's nothing left for me
Turn my gaze unto the sun
While giving head to a loaded gun
The chamber of redemption it revolves to me
Source of pleasure, my source of pain

Vanixer was a symptom of hoarding my shame
Now it seems is a wasteland of human remains
Sold your soul for this touch

Tell me what you hope to find
While traveling through space and time
Windows up, instead there's nothing left for me
Turn my gaze unto the sun
While giving head to a loaded gun
The chamber of redemption it revolves to me
Source of pleasure, my source of pain

Dear father, you're my maker
But you don't know what you are doing
I saw her, your creation
Mother Earth has fallen to ruin

Dear mother, we're your children
But we don't know what you are doing
I saw him in the shadow
Still preaching of love

Hey I said I just wanna make love to you
Is there any reason that I can't make love to you?
Don't get me wrong I wrote this song for you
And all of the other girls
It won't be long till I escape

Don't get me wrong I wrote this song for you
And all of the other girls
It won't be long till I escape the sound
Of breathing on my own to sooth my hands
Holding years of pain
Sing it with me till I become sane
All I'm asking for

Tell me what you hope to find
While traveling through space and time
Windows up, instead there's nothing left for me
Turn my gaze unto the sun
While giving head to a loaded gun
The chamber of redemption it revolves to me
Source of pleasure, my source of pain
