Deep 10:16
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

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

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

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

They 04:22
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

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

Apophenia 05:18
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

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
