Track Name: Incognito
Incognito

Gather round, collect your stones
Its time for you to beat your own
As you feel the skin on your knees
Peel back and begin to bleed
Shield your eyes with broken bones
As you lose your house, your home
Don't believe all the shit that you read
To fulfill that bleak prophecy

We're all just anonymous

Break the chain and pass the blame
Livin' this way is not the same
As your mind begins to wander
Not concealed over what is pondered
Dirt, trees, now that is free
Not him, nor her, nor me
Don't believe all the shit that they tell you
In the end your life ain't valued

We're all just anonymous

No more ties
No strings that bind
We're all anonymous
Track Name: Oblivious Populous
There's this monotonous feeling
That I don't care for many of you
Frustrating to stare
Frustration's a wasted emotion
Replace it with contempt
Just don't understand
There's this monotonous feeling
I don't care for many of you
Just don't understand

No sense of direction, despite the kiss of a fist
Stunned your state of mind's accepted

Chorus:
I try not to be a cliche
But what else can you do in this day and age
Apparently I'm the mistake
consider me the lucky one you ignorant prick

No sense of direction despite the kiss of a fist
I can't believe your state of mind is accepted

Chorus:
Track Name: Face of the Earth (F.O.E.)
Stereotypes to classification
Organize and sort the nation
Why wont you put it in it's cage
Not in our eye's range

Chorus:
Scrape yourself from the pavement
Leaving here in good health
Scrape yourself from the shameless
Life you lead, life you claim
Scrape yourself from the pavement
Scrape yourself from the shameless

You are just the typical growth
You are just the bacteria
You are no heroine
You are just one of them all

Chorus
Track Name: Crisis & Debt
Because it's substantial
In our financial
We owe to serve
It's fucking absurd
No choice but to
Because it's substantial
Work for pennies
'Til debt do us part

Chorus:
Don't criticize your strength
Self doubt is an absolute
Flaw your direction
Money feeds the world through lethal injection
It's for your protection
Bow and serve your lack of drive
But to stay alive
Surrender your fucking pride

But what for
What for
But what for?

Crisis & debt

Chorus
Track Name: Fundamentalist
Verse 1:
Cut out the sky
Fill your pockets to the top, there's nothing left
Can you find another profit
Can you find another prophet
Break the ground and watch it burn
Break the ground and watch it burn alive
Are you happy in your comfort
Of social control and bullshit lies

You think it's fine, on the right side
You are far too enterprising
Undeniable evidence
your lack of perception
you're no, you're no, you're
Fundamentalist

This used to be a paradise, this used to be a home
Charred glass, ruins, concrete, fire, night and day
It's all the same nowadays, this used to be a paradise
Killed by right wing republican bastards and cheats

Seize the night, break the surface
Make the light because it doesn't matter
It doesn't matter
Greed is the god now
Seize the night, break the surface
Make the light because it doesn't matter
Its doesn't matter, it's all over now

Verse 1
Track Name: Tendency
You can look; you can find it in books
But don't deny
You can't find
How it

Ticks
Makes me tick

You can look; you can find it in books
But don't deny
You can't find
How it

Ticks
Makes me tick

The cold dead of winter excuses the loneliness
How can you be lonely
When you want nothing but to be alone
Slipping slowly into senility
You can't see it in your eyes
But you can see it in mine

Tendencies
They make me tick
Track Name: Parodoxical Undressing
No time like now, cut out the cancer
The bug that eats me, soaking in my brain
It's right there, smirking in my face
Fork on a plate, never gives my ears a break
This can only, continue to irritate
It's now or never, and I'm too late

Chorus:
Top down in a ditch slough
No thought of anything better for you
Top down in a ditch slough
See you in a year or two
In a ditch slough, In a ditch slough

This just grows as I breathe
Burning my tongue eroding my knees
Spreading through my bones
Host and a new home

Chorus

Fuck who you are
Fuck what you need
