Track Name: Randall Flagg
Footsteps approach my cell
Starvation would soon take me to hell
Sustained life by a rat
Perhaps my inmate helped with that
Now we are face to face
I'm suddenly afraid to leave this place
Is he man or abomination?
A demonic manifestation

If I sell my soul to be freed
Serve evil for eternity
How can I refuse this offer?
I'm only man, I starve for power

The wicked join him to stand
In allegiance to the fall of man
By the grip of fear dare not turn
Our choice is made, our fate to burn

Make fortress in the west
Preparing to slaughter all those who detest
Superior weapons, we make our assault
For choosing the wrong side, you soon will be at fault
Our leader appointed me
A figure of high authority
Of life's truth I have been deprived
Like the rabbit in my youth I failed to keep alive

The dark one has offered to me
A purpose I've always envied
If I turn my throat will be slit
Will this price I pay be worth it?
Track Name: Wax Empire
World domination
In the blink of an eye
World domination
When you gonna realize?

Have you ever met that one stupid bitch you just wanna grab by the hair and say,
Look me in the eyes, and tell me that I am real
Give me a sense that I can finally feel
Is this a question of insanity?
Or is this my identity?

We live in a wax empire
A motherfuckin' wax empire

Is this my identity?

Our superficial way of living
Is just a lie that you've been given
We follow a fake path
Down this sultry road, an empire of wax

Brought down by the way we look
Changes the perspective of our lives
Follow the rest and you'll be fine
While they dare you to step out of line

Why on earth won't you please just shut up?
Track Name: Choice of Life
As we swim deeper into the void
Our souls become cheaper when employed
The light becomes darker as time draws near
This life has its martyrs instilling fear

Life is a choice, a choice of life

With age the world seems much smaller
With a conscience the order sits taller
Sell your soul or simply die early
The choice of life is clearer most surely

Life is a choice, a choice of life
Running in circles as fast as your strife
Sell your soul for another few years
To a brighter future with a hint of fear

Life is a choice, a choice of life
Burning your bridges as fast as your rights
Purging in war, a country unfolds
But no one shows mercy to the lives that it sold

Restitution found within a breath
A silence that sweeps from east to west
Sovereignty is only a dying breed
It shows when liberty is surfacing

Life is a choice, a choice of life

Squandering over years of silence
Trying just to fulfill my promise
To a country so mighty on the surface
But takes its money to the furnace
Track Name: Green Devin
Plug into the atmosphere
Screwdrives through the flames
Fire breaks my sole career
As we go down in pieces
Why' have to end like this?
Fire through the flames
So many things in life to consist
So many things you'll miss

My ship is burning
Disintegrating

This carnivorous planet is awakening
How can we stop ourselves? How can we stop ourselves?
Looks like we're in for a rude awakening
Why can't we stop ourselves? Why can't we stop ourselves?

Plummet to a certain death
Or so it does seem
We have seen most things beyond
Your wildest dreams
If we go, nobody will know
What the future holds
There's so much room out there to grow
The earth has nothing to show

Houston, this is the Green Devin. We are losing atmospheric pressure. I repeat: We are losing atmospheric pressure. Our protective shell is burning up. I repeat: Our protective shell is burning up. Oh God, there's some kind of malfunction in our controls. I don't wanna die! I don't wanna die!

Why can't we stop ourselves?
Track Name: Vintage Asian Porn
You cracked from all the rotten informalities
Of the culture praising sexuality
The money frees you, takes you where you want to be
But in the process seizes your morality

Facing your mentality
For more than sexuality
All the privacies that we adore
Now nothing more than vintage Asian porn
Censorship is said to rise
When fear is cast into their eyes
All the privacies that we adore
Now nothing more than vintage Asian porn

Facing your mentality
For all your sexuality
All the privacies that we adore
Now nothing more than vintage Asian porn

Falling into your mind
Misrepresentation of your own kind
Track Name: Tortuga
Pressure grasping on my neck
Falling power enters my death
Curse this noose around my neck
Paying the price for what you have done

Hatred, anger, witness, devour

This is the end, the end of my life
The end of my hate as I suffocate
Thus I am a fool for giving you rule
To the tyrant they call a king
I drop to the floor, can't take it anymore
My life is at the end of the rope
They will not forsake the crimes they have done
They're laughing and screaming, cause I'm done

Envy fills my eyes with lust
Tempted with power you thought to be yours
Rubies stain my hands
A fortune you thought to be in command

Guilty, terror, freedom, never

Dead men will tell their tales
Their message is spread when their lives have failed
The feeling of justice instilled
A few of us suffer, the rest are killed

Downward force my neck shall break
Life to me is worthless and fake
Lead by example or rule of thumb
Will this end be quick and numb?

Hatred, anger, freedom, never
Track Name: The Containment
I'm a victim no more than the crack pot
Is to his addiction, her addiction
These pixels form my social fiction
The game is going on around me

So hard to see
And hard to breathe
Following me

But I sit picking the grass with my hook in my ass
School's on Saturday, but I ain't got no class

A tree in the forest contained in a box
The roots are nourished, but the fruit seems to rot
The containment is destroying an invisible link
It looks perfect from here, but God, it stinks

It's fun to pour the oil 'til the funnel's overflowed
The components will erode, and the engine will explode

Feast on abomination, you'll get fat
Genetic modification, humans fed
Can you hear the sound of the slaughter
As they grind up the bones of mother nature's daughter?

I could listen, but I'll disobey instead
You won't believe the fuckin' shit I'm being fed

A tree in the forest contained in a box
The roots are nourished, but the fruit seems to rot
The containment is destroying an invisible link
It looks perfect from here in blood and ink

Being pollinated's more like being stung
Wiping with sandpaper as the shit fills your lungs

I hold in my hand the final blade that cuts the thread
There is no filter for the shit I'm being fed
Track Name: Victory In Your Head
As we speak our minds, but ignorance is blinding us
A challenger rises, humanity or stupidity?
A subject pawn, You dare to tell me why I'm wrong
Escape your thoughts, Don't flaunt your fake philosophy
When playing the game, there's no time to hesitate
When playing with someone who cannot communicate

This conversation is running in circles
We have no more purpose, an uncommon goal
Without education on what would seem logical,
How will you realize you reap what you sew?

When playing the game, there is no time to screw around
When feeling the pain, you're in your mind
And you hear the sound

So why fight over something that cannot be solved?
What about the perspective of it all?
My, how the order is tall, Didn't think you'd have the gall
You can't run only crawl, You'll get up and then you'll fall

So why fight?

Subject to the path of the argument
Thoughts will go unsaid
The fine line that lies between the thread n'
Victory in your head

Victory in your head
Track Name: Undecided Prosperity
Contempt for the inquisition
A lust for the other's position
Retreat to breeding self annihilation
Resentment of the general population
Abandoned by self satisfaction
Allied by hostile reaction
Betrayed a deficit tactic
All that's left is an anger-driven passion

Holy fuckin' shit
You know what? Sup?
I'm fed up with watching all the money go to a fucking train wreck. Me too
This industry's polluted by a legion of faggots. Faggots
Completely unaware of where their roots lie. Fuckin' pussies
Simply put: A legion of...

Pollution by insecurity
Content with no maturity
I'll put you on blast bitch, you're stirring me
Lines crossed, there's no deterring me
Starvation without an interest
You get up, but you swing, and then you miss
Mouth sour from the poison that you kissed
Vile venom from the snake when it hissed

Undecided prosperity, Let me just tell you what that means to me
Lazy motherfucker
Track Name: Dead Culture
Sickness spawned from the earliest of man
Century after century the fear of it still stands
When humankind becomes infected by
a sickness that makes it difficult to die
Driven by instinct, the sick feast on the living

In their minds dwell thoughts no more
Faded dreams of life lived before
No escape from what's inside
All their thoughts of life subside

A conversation piece fed on by the youth
Fantasy or induction of the truth
Virus, possession, a parasite
No matter the cause the dead, they walk upright
The only purpose in life is to survive this plague

They've lost their sight, they walk upright

We lost our sight, we walk upright
