Track Name: Standpoint
A thousand miles I have ran
Each step is all out war
With each passing day
I have become more

I will walk this earth searching far and wide
For the answers I seek knowledge I will know
On our journey through this life Perspective is at hand
Passing through the ebb and flow
Condemning narrow views
Rejecting hollow truths
Without an understanding I am lost

Staring out into the future
Looking back at what’s been lost
Facing here and now, restrained
Take from the old
Become the new

Progress, evolving
I will stand tireless
Maintaining haste
Hold up the weight crushing your fucking chest
Speak the truth
Forget the fabricated lies
For the answers you seek knowledge you will know

On our journey through this life
Perspective is at hand
Passing through the ebb and flow
Condemning narrow views
Rejecting hollow truths
Without an understanding I am lost

Staring out into the future
Looking back at what’s been lost
Facing here and now, restrained
Take from the old, become the new

Become the new

Insight, collapse of incompetence
Decide the path of integrity
For now there’s no relief

A thousand miles I have ran
Each step is all out war

Relentless

For now there’s no retreat
Taking the long road

Changing the face of the here, of the now, of myself
Track Name: The Blind Watchmaker
Where is your god?
Hidden, buried, in the mind of man
Your version of the truth
It differs within every one of you

Crushing sanity like hands around your neck
Engraved into your head
Belief will be the death of intellect

I've stomached all that I can take
Your life is burdened by your faith
Preach to believers reinforcing fiction with no bounds
It comforts you, to never stop repeating all the lies

The slave will obey, searching the skies
Waste away, the cross on your neck, choking to death, let go

But you can't walk away

Ignoring reason, you'll follow You'll never fucking lead
Without a doubt, accepting all the bullshit that you read
Passing on every legacy
Every hollowed out belief
The birth of wasted life is now complete

Now, breaking the leash
I'll take control out of reach

Clasping your hands
While you're bleeding to death
Choke on your prayers

I don't believe, I won't believe
You profit on the weak.

You'll never live again
You're never cheating death
This is all that you get

I've stomached all that I can take
Your life is burdened by your faith
Preach to believers, reinforcing fiction with no bounds
It comforts you, to never stop repeating all the lies

The slave will obey, searching the skies
Waste away, your saviour a myth blind in the dark, crucified
The slave will obey, searching the skies
Waste away, the cross on your neck
Choking to death, let go

Will you follow false beliefs?
Or question everything?
Every day I ask myself
Where is your god?

Betray all that you are

Praise your god, take my hand I will be the fall of man
Praise your god, take my hand I will be the fall of man
Track Name: My Sacrifice
Take on this world
Take on this horror
No choice you’re thrown into this life

We all sit in silence
Our own thoughts too deafening too hear
Trapped without reason
We all fight, our minds caught hold of fear

It’s everlasting
Too soon to fathom what went wrong
Only time will tell the end and pend the outcome
I feel surrounded, It smothers me, I’m weak
I’m bound again, I’ve suffered at your feet

In time, as all of this unfolds
This line, you’ve crossed it on your own
And in time, delete the past, regain
You will witness and reap what you have sown

Going through the motions
The clock ticks, the second hand moves on
Sinking in, the reality is slowly hitting home
I was never one to follow down that hole
Now I’m reaching down to pull you out

In time, as all of this unfolds
This line, you’ve crossed it on your own
And in time, delete the past, regain
You will witness and reap what you have sown

What for?
Look what it’s taken
It’s my sacrifice

What will it take to see what you have sold?
What will it take to release you from this hold?

You’ve past the point of no return
My empathy, my forgiveness
My time, my trust, my life
This is what I’ve sacrificed
Track Name: The Conformist
Wake up and take my hand
It’s time to see the truth
Foresee a future of failure
The false picture you paint for yourself

Cunt, I see through you
Cunt, maintain your fallacy

Open the gates to your mind
Wherein the real version lies
Every time you strengthen the veil
It’s just one step you’re taking away

You’re pushing yourself underground
You’ve been locked away
In your hollow cell
With your closest fears
And they drive you down
You’ve been locked away
In your hollow shell
With your closest fears
In this hell

Crossing over the threshold
Into a fate unknown
Casting aside your reflection
It’s time to build something
Carved on your own

Open the gates to your mind
Wherein the real version lies
Every time you strengthen the veil
It’s just one step you’re taking away

When they drive you down
You’ve been locked away
In your hollow cell
With your closest fears
And they drive you down
You’ve been locked away
In your hollow shell
With your closest fears
Trapped in this hell

If this infection spreads it will
Kill everyone

I see through

I will not stand for what I know to be wrong
I’d rather stand alone
It takes someone with virtue
Not to be a fucking drone
Track Name: House of Cards
I lay witness to this verdict about to unfold
This decision is made
Without thought, without insight or vision
All respect is about to degrade

I’m driving my fist to the ground
Exiled for not backing down
Betrayed to the wall
They’re not gonna stop me
And leave me to take on it all

I aspire to bring to collapse
And take back a system of total control
You set me on fire, then hold out your hand
This betrayal will severe you all

Leaving this in disarray

Forced to conform as revenge takes it’s hold
All of these pressures, chaining me down
War within as it rips through your heart
They won’t stop me from trying to tear them apart

I’ll taste your blood

I’m driving my fist to the ground
Screaming my lungs out of sound
Betrayed to the wall
They’re not gonna stop me and leave me to take on it all

I aspire to bring to collapse
And take back a system of total control
You set me on fire, then hold out your hand
This betrayal will severe you all.

As the fire burns out and you’re left with the ashes
I will witness the cost and revel in your self defeat

Your dedication has led you to fail
Now lay in your mess
What’s left in ruin was made by your hand
Align the pieces and take out your king
Checkmate

What’s left in ruin was made by your hand
Align the pieces and take out your king
Checkmate
