Track Name: A Bitter Harvest
instrumental
Track Name: From Birth
you’re fucked from birth, born of a hopeless world
you’re fucked from birth, just left to rot and die
worthless humans, they’re breeding diseased spawn
no life, no love, you just got left behind
born less than human
addicted, left for dead
taught to care only for themselves
careless actions thrive in a world gone wrong
taught that they have no fucking consequence
civil respect – abandoned and destroyed
brought up in a world that doesn’t care
born less than human
addicted, left for dead
taught to care only for themselves
how can you be blamed for how you were raised?
you never had a chance born to scumbags like that
so little hope left now when this is our future
dystopian outlook, where’s the flood when you need it?
“cuz Lord knows I was fucked from birth
Lord give me death, put me in the dirt
born less than a human, born into addiction
victims of God’s decisions, Lord undo your work”
no god would stand a world like this
we created this, it’s a human mess
i’ve got a vulgar faith in man
bring on the flood, this is your last chance
Track Name: Extinction
a pleasant surprise but still unexpected
the decision is made not to reject it
plans have to change but it seems for the better
creating new thoughts on forever
not an easy choice in a place like this
where the industry is human misery
no, why can’t we see the coming end of civility?
trying to survive in a world in crisis
one on the edge of apocalypse
is hard enough when you’re on your own
searching for a place to call home
but raising a child is a whole other beast
when selfish depravity simply won’t cease
with so few of us thinking to the road ahead
is it better to let us die off instead?
extinct
Track Name: Brain Drain
i know why you made your choice but still i feel a bit betrayed
self-imposed suburban exile, white flight for the modern day
i hate to say it but you know it’s true
this city’s dying cuz of people like you
you believed the myth, you bought the lies of greener grass and bluer skies
you somehow think you’ll keep him safe from drugs and guns in that place
i hate to say it but you know it’s true
this city’s dying cuz of people like you
the disease takes control as the body is bled dry
the ones who can help it are running for their lives
now from the distance of your new home just watch it die
Track Name: The New Dark Ages
it’s days like this that make me think that the sun will never shine again
no signs of hope that greed and deceit won’t ever be part of the master plan
they give us two choices and tell us it’s freedom but my beliefs aren’t represented
and those with a choice choose not to partake, new plans must be implemented
myths have a place in guiding our laws, our leaders are speaking in tongues
our neighbors flick needles to deal with their feelings while violence consumes our young
wars are still fought over the same false gods and still no one sees the truth
cuz nice pleasant stories of life in the clouds are better than seeking the proof
we inhale the vapors and we eat the cancers while disease it steals our breath
solutions are offered but we can’t be bothered, give us convenience or death
welcome to the new dark age
Track Name: Grudgeholder
why i never learn burns behind my eyes
ill-humored latebloomer, finally recognize
been playing catch-up all of my life
always find myself a few steps behind
lessons are learned but never in time
but this time i’m getting it right
i’m tired of wasting effort where it doesn’t belong
no longer making right what keeps going wrong
accept my losses while my sanity is intact
don’t need the stress, i’m cutting the fat
you never listen, you never learn
my frustration has reached a new peak
rage boils over and i lose control
do me a favor and stay over there
save your “i’m sorry”s for someone who cares
you never listen, you never learn
please get it through your head
i don’t fucking care
why i never learn burns behind my eyes
Track Name: Plastic Tombs
when we’ve got more going out than we do coming in
we’ve got a real sustainability problem
someone explain this to me cuz it doesn’t make any sense
we’re told that it’s ok to spend what we don’t have
it’s for the good of the economy
debt-based economics, just fueling our greed
confusing our wants and needs
it’s in our best interest to invest in sickness
it’s for the good of the society
the rich get more and the poor go bust
but in the almighty free market we trust
is this really what we need?
in a world where greed is king we live beyond our means
we spend what we don’t have to gain the upper hand
amass a pile of shit and live a life of debt
bound by what you owe, buried in a plastic tomb
this can’t last
Track Name: Funerary
close your eyes, consumed with oblivion
the night has torn us apart
how can we imagine that we can survive?
close your eyes, dream sleep
the black sleep
last sunset pays final debt
never to rise again
never
close your eyes
the blood has been drained
night has swallowed us home
fire in it’s own broken wisdom
betrays the loss of abomination
cursing the destruction of the ambivalent
crucifixion, we rise in disguise
a bastardized expression of guilt
reach out and touch
all things we want to corrupt
live on, watch it all die
because death is how we survive
close your eyes
a final breath, and then it’s done
follow the trail of the setting sun
cold nights and last rites
sleep forever as they dim the lights
rest in peace or so they say
without the torment of another day
your final goodbyes
close your eyes
Track Name: At Peace
hey old man, are you better off now?
the pain you endured, no god would allow
you never let it show, so stubborn, so still
a man of such virtue, no god could kill
peace, in death find peace
some kind of release
in death find peace
please, see me as i sleep
visit me in my dreams
so i may be at peace
your faith gave you strength to not succumb to despair
you always put others first amidst this nightmare
it’s all over now, but i still can’t believe
no god would bestow such abhorrent disease
peace, in death find peace
some kind of release
in death find peace
please, see me as i sleep
visit me in my dreams
so i may be at peace
never will i see your face and never will i touch your skin
and never will i ever get to see you smile again
never will i see your face and never will i touch your skin
and never will i ever get to feel your warmth again
never will i see your face and never will i touch your skin
and never will i ever get to call and ask for help again
never will i see your face and never will i touch your skin
and never will i ever get to tell you that i love you again
Track Name: Whispers
on those nights when sleep just won’t come
you’ve exhausted every option, when it’s all been said and done
you think about what comes next
when peace finally knows your name
the regrets that you may have, what you’d do all over again
whispers from a far away place and you’re gone without a trace
did you give all that you had to offer?
did it kill you to watch others suffer?
we will be remembered for the things that we shared
while our empires of waste dissolve into the air
whispers from a far away place and you’re gone without a trace
voices that call you by your name
lead to light on your final day
do you plan to go an anonymous soul?
destined to be forgotten in time
the lackluster outcome of a life lacking goals
or will you leave behind a grand legacy?
a history worthy of time’s memory?
Track Name: Waiting
a genius ploy to maintain control, reward so great you’d sell your soul
two-thousand years and still you wait, the hook is set with the perfect bait
like a carrot at the end of the stick, the promise of eternal salvation
lead the way and they follow, forever waiting on the impending return
still they’re waiting, they’re still waiting for his return
how much waiting can you take before you learn?
always waiting on the coming of the messiah
he’s not coming, now be damned all crooks and liars
the time has come, the chance was missed, humanity has been dismissed
it’s up to us to save ourselves, no way but up cuz this is hell
take control of your own life, stop waiting on man’s biggest lie
no savior is coming for your soul, find faith in self because you’re on your own
Track Name: August 29
won’t you please let me give this one back, give this day back
cuz i don’t know if i can make good use of this gift you’ve give me
