Track Name: Deep
Deafening desires form the will to bleed through subtile scorn
Sentiment seeks ways to breed the ghost to meet the norm

While treasures from archaic ages weight
inner battles rage
Poisoning the pulsing cage
'til my defense is torn

I see deep into your heart
The cure is buried in these walls of stone
Another world opens up
My treacherous defects to drop

Out of sight, out of mind
Control's a though left far behind
Where leaders go to draw the line
envisioning the blind

To close the talk that flips the coin
By emptiness to be anoint
Rejecting all, noone gets near
in fear to disappoint

I see deep into your heart
The cure is buried in these walls of stone
Another world opens up
My treacherous defects to drop

Leap out of the void
My flame shall burn, within
'Til my wounds leak salt
Castles in the sky won't fall
If angels use their wings to crawl

Spread your wings to fly
Drop the bags you carry
On to shores where both worlds marry
In realms of yours those may lie

Godspeed!
Time to close my own destiny
To subside to the path to our own fractured self

Deep are the wounds
they drive into me
To feel them breathe, yet nowhere near
Deep reach the cuts, below the skin
But in the end don't hurt anymore
Track Name: Reeks Insidious
At times it seems I hear a feedback from the void
It's 'us' and 'them'" - a voice constantly ignored
At times I feel for real this backlash in the bones
White noise repeatively resounding from the clones

In horror all cause is condemned
But I resent...

The reek insidious
Ancient lore of the plague
The reinacrnation of evil
Face up!
Against the wake of the fake
To be thy nemesis
of a congregation obsolete

As empty bags inflate to iron my will
My metal tongue just waits
the "righteous" to kill

From fear all horrors emerge
Sodoms converge...

On reeks insidious
Ancient lore of the plague
The reinacrnation of evil
Face up!
Against the wake of the fake
To be thy nemesis
of a congregation obsolete

Slime - crucial terms deranged -
dripping from the edge of time
Leaking into our heresy

Retry - the code to outvote their hatred
Abort - the elderly speak
Restrospective reeks
Just ignore!

In love all fear finds its end
to transcent...

Reeks insideous
Ancient lore of the plague
The reinacrnation of evil
Face up!
Against the wake of the fake
To be thy nemesis
of a congregation obsolete
Track Name: The War On Intelligence
It’s true
Science has a poor grasp on the mind
Yet it’s spectacularly better
Than your poor mind’s grasp on science

It’s true
Man’s moronic, deaf and blind
Yet you insult the few
Who actually know a thing or two

None of you has ever answered us:

Why?
Why all this?

Random babble is not the same as research
Who stands to gain from lying about the shape of Earth?
Conspiracy fantasy to mask your idiocy
The war on intelligence you dare to call “awakening”

Go ahead, deny the totality of human knowledge
All of science
All of reason
All the evidence
All the greatest minds

Newton, Ptolemy, Armstrong And Galilei,
Einstein, Hutton, Mawson, Scott, Magellan, Hawking, Amundsen - the lot
You make them vomit
In their graves

So the world is flat
Just because you want it to be
Well, saying so don’t make it so

How has any of your crap
Made the world a better place
How has any of your crap
Made the world a better place
Everyone’s a liar and you’re smarter than the world

You’ve got nothing

Nothing

A declaration of intellectual bankruptcy
The war on intelligence you dare to call awakening

You’ve got nothing

Nothing
Track Name: Vacant Dreams
In the face of the storm
Those hopes helt high - by twilight were gone
Into the unknown
A traverse into emptiness

At a vast ridge I stand
I turn my head towards the figures below
Time plays against our will to survive
Buried deep in slopes of snow

Expelled into extremes
To live and die for vacant dreams
Minds to be redeemed
by deeds awaken in vacant dreams

From the summit unknown
A glimpse of light reheats the night's divide
Melting the ice above
The glacier's cascades eventually tumbles down

Expelled into extremes
To live and die for vacant dreams
To be redeemed
life comes awake in vacant dreams
To succeed is to
Live and die for vacant dreams
To be redeemed
Come! Awake in vacant dreams

Into extremes
To live and die for vacant dreams
to be redeemed
Awake in vacant dreams
Track Name: They
Did you fail primary school?
Are you lost without a clue?
No matter, cause anyway
THEY have it in for you

Jesus is the internet
Space jews chemtrailed nine-eleven
And only the righteous
Will be hoovered into heaven

Do you think you’re now one of them
The famous secret few
You feel special, so it must be true
And THEY are now after you

Nazi aliens vaccinate us
Full of AIDS from the hollow Earth
China pushes the climate hoax
Run by lizards in UFOs

It takes more than fifteen liars
To control a world
And why do THEY conspire?
Because bible, because Satan,
Because reasons

They’ve been hiding everything from everyone for thousands of years
Sure, and no-one ever talked
Clinging to their power with infinite man-hours
But why stop there
There’s more that THEY concoct

Dinosaurs built the pyramids
Annunaki walk among us wearing suits and ties and shoes
Opticians CGI the matrix into our eyes
Leaving clues
In our tattoos

The world will end on Saturday
And then again some time in May
And for every fuck-up until then
We know who dunnit: They!

Too dumb to see you’re stupid
Too deranged to see what’s true
Your failures, they are never your fault
Cause THEY are controlling you

It takes more than fifteen liars
To control a world
And why do THEY conspire?
Because money, because *lawrl*, because reasons

Nothing that requires everyone will ever, ever work
Track Name: Dianetics Declined
Creed is a joyful eraser
Teaching the cause of conceit
You inherit the ultimate nothing
By obeying the rules of deceit

For god a throne to inherit by treason
The world upon thee is no use to mankind
Two gods - a reign of terror unfolds
Made up in the fiction of a maddening mind

Results over reason
All thought to deny
They're all just dead bodies
Decreed by the blind

Reaction to reason
Reactivate minds
Sample to sample out
Dianetics Declined

Truth is just a conspiracy
once your allies have become the enemy
Staight from the grave call the words
of a prophet deranged
Your icons unchained

For god a throne to inherit by treason
The world upon thee is no use to mankind
Two gods - a reign of terror unfolds
Made up in the fiction of a maddening mind

Results over reason
All thought to deny
They're all just dead bodies
Decreed by the blind

Reaction to reason
Reactivate minds
Sample to sample out
Dianetics Declined

An empire to lose
Its fundament are the doubts withheld in you
No need to think twice
For all reproaches are labelled as lies within your truth
Track Name: Apophenia
How come we see things as they were
but not as they are?
How come we feel the same
and start a war?

In your mind a pattern unwinds
seeking the perfect truth
And if you dare to object
you shall be removed!

Chaos' creation -
Evolution invents all gods
From chaos gravitates
the wombs of their insignificant flaws

Evolution is no opinion you can either own or deny
It is no believe, just the best we yet have in mind

Believe what you feel is true
Don't dare to impose your thoughts on the ones who care

Art is not
randomly articulated inadequacy
Truth is not
randomly articulated anomaly

We are the architects to turn the lead of chance
into the gold of science
Reason and hope go hand in hand
Track Name: The Flying Pizza Conundrum
Maybe the Earth’s a flying pizza
Maybe “South”’s the same as “down”
Maybe NASA are all liars
Or maybe it’s just fucking round

Maybe the sun’s a tiny spotlight
Maybe things don’t fall to the ground
Maybe the moon’s just a projection
Or maybe you’re just fucking around

“Gravity” is short for “gravity, you fucking retard”
It isn’t “checkmate” if you just knock over the board
Replacing progress of the species
With mindless drivel of the Lord

Speeding upwards at 1 g =
Less than a year, and we’re at light speed
So the world started, like, last October?

“But but but water always finds its level”
But what is level - it is not a straight line
It’s perpendicular to the Earth’s pull of gravity

Gravity, you fucking retard
Every single proof just gets ignored
Replacing progress of the species
With mindless drivel of the Lord

Climb a mountain
Board a plane
Look out to sea
Or *aaargh* use your fucking brain
Believe what you want
But please keep it to yourself
We grownups needn’t hear
The lies of the insane

The lies of the insane

Solo - Morean

Let’s put things in perspective
The point of the “vanishing point”
Is the vanishing

So towards sunset
Your micro sun inflates
Oh, so much fail

The Zetetic sewer
Is where cognition goes to die

And the best one yet:
Antarctica does not exist…?
Ice wall, nowhere to fall?

The austral midnight sun
Upside-down moon and Southern stars
Sigma Octantis

So many nails
We’re running out of coffin here

Gravity
Is short for “gravity, you fucking retard”
Cosmology acrobats, boy you must be bored
Replacing progress of the species
With mindless drivel of the Lord
