Track Name: Royal Fool
Look into my soul, let it be read, cherish what gods given. Free will it must act, act as lead, to your x-ray vision.

Imagine my surprise at the request.
Imagine my confusion at the behest of my lord.
Imagine my surprise at the request.
Murder, in any sense of the word.
You're absolutely absurd to think I'd trade my child for thee.
Won't be, Can’t be
Heeding the call, Backwards we fall.
Hearing the choice, with no trust at all

Be it from the ground, from the sky or other world around me.
Was he just a babe, oh man alive your gall truly astounds me.

Imagine my surprise at the request.
Imagine my confusion at the behest of my lord.
Imagine being told not to distress.
Murder, Spilling blood for the word.
You're absolutely absurd to think I'd trade my child for thee.

Can’t be, Won't Be
Heeding the call, on your swords, you will fall.
Hear the choice, Make the choice, with no choice at all

Worth more than gold, yes you are, yes you are.
The hypocrisy
Won't do as I'm told, not by far, not by far.
The reality
Cold is the choice, you offer us,
Gone is the trust.
Cold Is the choice, you offer us
Gone is the trust, and reality.
Worth more than gold, yes you are, yes you are.
The hypocrisy
I won't do as I'm told, not by far, not be far.
The reality

Who are you to rule, demand of me, just to satisfy you.
(Offer up your blood.)Won’t give into your misanthropy if I’m hell bound forsake you.
Track Name: Fossil
Frigid wind, break not bend.
There’s no middle ground, just talking heads on every screen.

With every word, I grow more sick, with every fact, you slightly twist.

I’ve got your cure right here, the hot tip of the year. You’re old, you’re scared, you’re dead, and no one cares
If you could just shut up, two seconds long enough
You’d know that no one’s listening, no one cares.

Just like a habit you cannot resist.
Your opinions, they make you, you spit them, you have to.
When there’s no room for your ideals to exist.
Yeah you push them, you force them, down all our throats
I will not tolerate another word.
Yeah we hear you, we see you, it’s your view, not ours.

A self proclaimed fountain of truth.
You prattle on without a clue.

With every lie, I grow more sick, around your neck, your lines will twist, I am the kill, you’re just the, pacifist.

I never asked you to speak for me.
you run your mouth, but no one believes.
I never asked you to bleed for me
Clinging, like we owe you something.

Just like a habit you cannot resist.
Your opinions, they make you, you spit them, you have to.
When there’s no room for your ideals to exist.
Yeah you push them, you force them, down all our throats.
I will not tolerate another word.
Yeah we hear you, we see you, it’s your view, not ours.

Well who the fuck asked you?

A self proclaimed fountain of truth
The world all according to you.
The black and white the wrong and the right.
There’s no middle ground, it’s so true.
Speaking and ranting on every point,
and still you have so much more to prove.
But no one hears you, but no one hears your truth.
Track Name: Mourning
Unadorned and unabashedly, far too willing to me, it seems to be.
You face the great unknown, counting days and it shows.

Even on the eve of your departure, I feel like a vulture, I pick, I chew, I’ll not let you alone.

We all can see the fall.
We try to fight it but it’s pure frustration.

Ashes to ashes, this we are.
We all must face our death some day.
Dust to dust we become.
We face these things our own way.

Content to accept and not to dwell, never learned that lesson very well.
What is, and what’s to be, an ever better man than me.

Even though you’ve instilled all your wisdom, I just can’t help but go numb, without your eyes to guide me, I can’t see.

We all can see the fall.
We try to fight it but it’s pure frustration.

Ashes to ashes, this we are.
We all must face our death some day.
Dust to dust we become.
We face these things our own way.

Your gaze, weighs heavy on hand.
It stays as steady as the sands.
Days past, I can recall the last.
At least in there I'll make things last.
Heaven, an idea I’d like to trust.
I hold on to our lives instead.
Yeah man, one day I’ll bite the dust.
I pray I’m remembered, as just, just.
Just.

No time
No escape
No lies
Nothing left to say
No time
No escape
No lies
Nothing left to say.
If I had one thing left to say, I’d hold it inside, till it’s killing me.
If I had just one thing to say.

Even with your self embraced destruction.
I simply cannot function. these angry tears well up until they drip.
We all can see the fall.
We try to fight it but it’s pure frustration.

Ashes to ashes, this we are.
We all must face our death some day.
Wake Up! wake up!
Track Name: Cactus
One spark one cell one life
two choices wrong and right
three million questions
without a single answer in sight.

Welcome humanity
Choose now to fight or flee.

Embrace this insanity
the very mark of humanity.

One light one dawn one fire
the brilliance in the night.
Divergent pathways
potential with no ending in sight.

Welcome humanity
Choose now to fight or flee

No, you cannot escape from this world. Yeah there’s nowhere to hide.
No, you can’t just sit back & deride. Yeah there’s nowhere to turn.
No, you cannot escape from this truth. As if there’s one for you.
Are we simply along for the ride? Wait in line for your time to die.

Embrace insanity
the very mark of humanity.

Welcome humanity
Choose now to fight or flee.

No, you cannot escape from this world. Yeah there’s nowhere to hide.
No, you can’t just sit back & deride. Yeah there’s nowhere to turn.
No, you cannot escape from this truth. As if there’s one for you.
We’re not simply along for the ride? Wait in line for your time to die.

Never enough pills to kill the pain.
A temple defiled
Never enough bombs to quell the outrage.
You can’t stop the wild.
No monsters left to blame,
As we remain idle
There’s one for all, but they're one and the same.
Our devils do smile.

War, it’s your answer to everything
We need more, more sales less charity.
Distort our sense of bravery
to ignore, all signs of catastrophe.

Decide right now to join or discount
All the lies and deception
All the plain contradiction
We’re about fear and consent
An unconscious decent
Into the mirrors lament
Staring back at the face you both own and resent.

There still is time,
To find reason and rhyme
For the method of madness
For the depths of our sadness.
And wasted time I still have faith
In the sick human race
Turn you back on opinion
On the hate for you brothers and stop to embrace

Your mind, your heart
Though they both play a part
Though they both play a part
When your time comes, and goes
Will you know when to start.

They’ll say there’s time
Time to pull in the lines
They’ll say there’s time

Round and round, we go
Down the trail we will fall
There still is time

Fight or flee
Die or be
Decide now.
Track Name: Skeletal
And in the coming days I know my sight will pierce this haze
and then my eyes will see that you were always meant for me
I've screamed and screamed I've screamed I know.
I've screamed and let my rage just flow.

Like blood and salty tears, like holy wars for years and years
I’ve lived this way, seems endlessly, that something's tried controlling me.
It fuels me up and tries to steal, have I succumbed to this not to feel?

Defend Ignorance
Destroy the evidence
Ignore the precedence
Resist the urge to fight back.
(It fuels me up and tries to steal, have I succumbed to this not to feel?)

And still I’m reassured these trusted voices must be heard.
And like a siren’s song without intent has steered me wrong.
I’ve screamed and screamed I've screamed with cause.
I've screamed but taken little pause

To consider what is best, or which of us this is to test. You've but to live and to learn. Unconcerned your main concern.
Time will tell, the hands move on. I pray that I've not trodden on.

Defend Ignorance
Destroy the evidence
Ignore the precedence
resist the urge to fight back.
(Time will tell, the hands move on. I pray that I've not trodden on.)

Desperately, tried not to, no avail. I’ve woven you.
This shroud of dark to wear within. Burdened you, my greatest sin.
Yes, I can hear the call.

Need no one’s sympathy, to comfort or make mockery.
I’ve taken on my greatest fear
To prove to you I shall not veer.
Yes, I can hear the call
I’ve become skeletal.

And so, this fear you see is of you looking down on me.
Know this I could not bear; I’d tear my eyes out this I swear.
I scream and scream I scream inside.
I scream I feel as though I've lied.
To you so much regret. It fills my heart I owe this debt. I can't repay I never could. I hope Someday its understood.
I see one path and actualize I stand and I apologize.
I apologize!

Defend Ignorance
Destroy the evidence
Ignore the precedence
resist the urge to fight back.
(I see one path and actualize I stand and I apologize.)
Track Name: Silver Tongue Behemoth
Ladies and gentlemen for your entertainment.
Take a breath and let it go, we know life takes a toll.
They care not for the toil of man
We know life takes a toll.
Drunk on blood they do not understand.

Everything's fine, Except all the lies
There's nothing to fear. Except for you your selves
Simply tune in my dear we're always here.

Greed is driving the feeding at hellish speed.
All their hands and their voices tied up with green.
For the profit, of their pockets,
you will pay, you will slave away.

Ladies and gentlemen, o.k. to be ambivalent.
Take a breath, let it go, we know life takes a toll.
So, go kill with your spears and your fire.
We know life takes a toll.
Kill the monsters, kill the liars.

Turn up the sound, until you go deaf
establish the link, to make you complete
The message so loud you can’t hear yourself think.

Hate, Greed, Lust,
all for the politics there's no trust.
All for the profit, of their pockets,
you will pay, you will slave.

Crawling closer to the light
Edging closer to the truth.
It’s so easy anyone can see,
They own you
They own me
They own us all

Your politics
Your rights
Your choices
Your fights
Your clothes
Your homes
Your souls

I don’t blame the mouthpiece, fuck no, I blame you, I blame you.

I put trust in your hands, that you’d see us through.
The many always destined to lift the few.

Ladies and gentlemen, ladies and ladies and…
It’s all part of the show
Ladies and gentlemen, ladies and, don't you go.
It’s all part of your show
Ladies and gentlemen, don't you go.
I’m so sick of your show
Ladies and gentlemen, you've left us…

No choice, you gave it up long ago.
(We, won’t, buy)
You’ve no voice, to speak of now anyhow.
(We, won’t, buy) (Silver Tongue Behemoth)
You can't Breathe
(We, won’t, buy)
And you no leave
(We, don’t, buy) (Silver Tongue Behemoth)
We won’t buy, what you’re selling us
We don’t buy, what you’re telling us
We won’t buy what you’re selling us
We don’t buy, SILVER TONGUE BEHEMOTH.
Track Name: Failure
Your voices, still crawl my mind. I ignore them, hoping they all will fade in time.

None claim that life is easy, open idle hands be empty.

My choices remain my own. No difference, reminds me that nothing is set in stone.

Oh source of such frustration.

Crawling, crying, screaming, bleeding, asking for some kind of meaning why.

Pushed, past the point of failure.

We’re not asking
You speak is if we had a choice
We’re not laughing
Still talking as if you had a voice

I'm not laughing, no fucking way
Taking the pain all in stride
I'm not dying, no not today
If only a matter of pride

Day in, day out. It’s time to reign in. Free from this fear fueled mind drought.

No one ever said life would be easy, we all struggle to pull our own weight.

Day star, praying. Hasn't your radar picked up this need of changing.

No one ever said this wasn't crazy. All the signs seem to point just the same.

Crawling, crying, screaming, bleeding, asking for some kind of meaning why.

Pushed past the point of failure.

We’re not asking
You speak as if we had a choice
We’re not offering
Still talking as if you had voice

I'm not laughing, no fucking way
Taking the pain all in stride
I'm not dying, no not today
If only a matter of pride

I wanted more than hope.
I wanted more. More than just spoken word.
I wanted more for you then to hate being broken.

Ain't this strange the games we play
When nothing's changed, still we run away.
So insane, the claims we make
When nothing's changed, still we run away.

I wanted more than hope.
I wanted more. More than just spoken word.
I wanted more for you then to hate being broken.

Accept the pain and don't complain
Pretend there's change, pretend you're sane

And every time I fall face down I face this dilemma.
I just can’t lie, I just won’t try, I've faced this forever.
We play the game though nothing's changed, it all stays the same.
We still pretend we think we can mend this endless circus.
We’re not asking
You speak is if we had a choice
We’re not laughing
Still talking as if you had a voice

I'm not laughing, no fucking way
Taking the pain all in stride
I'm not dying, no not today
If only a matter of pride
