Track Name: Aims of Desire
A desire prescribed, a need produced.
Line your pockets with our self doubt.

Your own identity repackaged and sold back.

Joys and fears codified, domesticated.
Pleasure owned. Desire's controlled but you can buy it.

Make me reject myself. Deplete me.
Track Name: Concrete Cage
A lens in every window, a cop on every street.

To everyone a number and each number to its place.

Surveillance state. Human rats run circles in a concrete cage.

Born into a system where you're watched, filed, stored, and displaced.
You had no say.
Track Name: Deprogram
Can we see through the lie, the crafted facade?
Our destroyed self esteem complicit in our apathy.

To deny one's own image and long for it replaced by plastic constructions.

Reflections of machines projected on the screens
devoid of all identity, programmed for greed.
Stripped of all your thoughts your self conception and your frame can you break out of the game?
Track Name: Nuclear Winter
In the name of global empire they do all they can do.
They hide behind a process of universal truth.
With a finger on the button waiting for the chance
to have it all go off in a final blast.

But the dogs protect their masters like everything's okay
because they've got comfy houses guarded by the state
with a finger on the button, waiting for the chance
to bury half the earth in a coat of toxic ash.

Visions of a future buried in dust. Nuclear winter.
Corroded iron skeletons pierce the sky.
Track Name: Distortion
Pressure in my head, no release.
Trapped behind a wall, caught in distortion.

Pressure in my head, can't see straight.
Blinded by distortion.

Distortion, psychotic pain.
Distortion escape this brain.
