Track Name: Essential Liberty for Temporary Security
As I watch you all wondering where you went wrong
Screaming, begging, pleading for mercy, terminated one by one

Gave up one thing hoping for another you never learned your lesson and now others suffer
The desire for control hates anything that might lead to hope for resistance

Scrambling for cover and cowering just like cattle
Where is your precious Shepard? Where is your protector?

No duty to defend you from harm as determined by your own courts of law
Arriving just in time to clean up the blood and ask bystanders what they saw

Too late now to take back what you made us give up
Screaming, begging, pleading for mercy, terminated one by one

Pain. Fear. Pain. Hate. Pain. Blood. Death. Lust. Death. Blood. Pain. Free.
Track Name: In Search of the Miraculous
Man is a vicious, vengeful beast obsessed with satisfying his banal mechanical desires.
Lying, cheating, stealing, dominating others in his quest to be on top, once and for all.
There is nothing majestic or magical. There is nothing miraculous about power.

Obliterate your preconceptions.
Unify your shattered selves.
Transcend greed
Eviscerate those who seek dominion

I've only seen boundless compassion
In your fictions and your dream
This perception
Can experience no peace

Obliterate your preconceptions.
Unify your shattered selves.
Transcend greed, eviscerate
Those who seek dominion
Track Name: Vision
I can see your future, ending yesterday
Pretense only goes so far
Recognize the problem, scream loud and treat the symptoms
Recognize the problem, scream loud and ignore the cause

Murderous manipulation
A total lack of self control
Your envious exasperation
I fight your vision for this world

Endless cycles perpetuate this pattern
Everything is changing, every century the same
Save some time by learning from the past
You don't have to make the same mistakes

Murderous manipulation
A total lack of self control
Your envious exasperation
I fight your vision for this world

Endless cycles perpetuate this pattern
Everything is changing, every century the same
Recognize the problem, scream loud and treat the symptoms
Recognize the problem, scream loud and ignore the cause

Murderous manipulation
A total lack of self control
Your envious exasperation
I fight your vision for this world
Track Name: The Last Resort of The Powerless
No food. No shelter. No guarantee that we'll see the next sunrise.
We all understand that we have nothing to lose.
Thus begins our glorious revolution.

Brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers
The time has come to seek a better tomorrow
Take what you can to arm yourselves
We're gonna give the beasts in power a living hell
Show them the same consideration they gave to us
Show them the same determination thought we gave up
Topple the monuments to greed and death
I'll fight for freedom with my last breath

Up against the wall
No blindfolds
Shoot them all

Blood flows like a river through the streets
Cleansing them of one vermin to make way for another
The surviving sociopaths struggle for power
Slowly reinstituionalizing control and corruption
And as we experience the new sun together we realize
That the tree of liberty will always demand more blood

Brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers
The time has come to seek a better tomorrow
Take what you can to arm yourselves
We're gonna give the beasts in power a living hell
Show them the same consideration they gave to us
Show them the same determination thought we gave up
Topple the monuments to greed and death
I'll fight for freedom with my last breath
Track Name: Zero Versus Infinity
Separated from the whole each one is close to zero
Alone and disconnected adverse to all else that exists
Nothing comforts against the prospect of oblivion
The ego struggles to persist

Raised in consant contradiction and hypocrisy
The nature of the true self hidden from identity
The nature of identity hidden from the true self

The truth revealed, there is no separation
Artificial language creates the lies that bind
Accepting this unity brings peace
Accepting this peace brings unity

The secret revealed, taboo lifted
Integrated with the rest of the
Universal experience of humanity as oceans
