Track Name: Global Witness
Starved world, run dry
Debris in the gears and
No one at the wheel. Ambivalence
How do we move on? What do we do next?
It’s not our fault
It’s not our problem
It’s none of our business
But still the bourgeois laugh
While our home violently weeps

And nothing will be left
But ash and hubris
We gave ample warning

We can’t agree
We can’t decide
Our indecision will be our demise
Make up your mind
Pick a side
Procrastination
We’re out of time

Ignorance and indolence
Dissociative cognizant
Neglect. regret. irrelevant
Something’s gotta give
It’s the beginning
Find the will to live
There’s no forgiving
This is happening too fast
Exponential decay

And nothing will be left
But ash and hubris
We gave ample warning

We can’t agree
We can’t decide
Our indecision will be our demise
Make up your mind
Pick a side
Procrastination
We’re out of time
Track Name: Metallurgy
Take the step, make the leap
Discover my own fate
Just a taste, just a taste
It’s time to clean the slate
A lesson for the ego
I derived from the innate
I look upon myself to find
The answers that I seek
Nothing that i recognize
Was swirling all around me
Spiral in, fractal out
Maybe I’ll become free
Lost along the way
My guide has led me astray
And i must find my own way back
Just a taste, just a taste

Walls are closing in and
I don’t know where I am and
I need to find a friend
My eyes are bugging out my fuckin’ head
So visceral and real this is
Nothing can compare to this
Embrace your environment
Just let go

Peaceful and serene i now
Know where i have been all this time
A place of recognition and familiarity
I lack all control, was never mine to let go
Not mine to let go
Just let go

Took the step, made the leap
Discovered my own fate
Just a taste, took just a taste
And now I’ve cleaned the slate
A lesson for my ego I derived from the innate
I looked upon myself and found
The answers that I’d need
Nothing that I’d recognize
Was swirling all around me
I spiraled in, I fractaled out
And now I have become free
Now that I’ve arrived here
Everything’s become clear
Sacrificing all fear
Moving to the next tier
Track Name: Reckless Waste
You’ve never seen the desperation of man
Until he lacks water
Rationalizing a panacea
The time has come to cauterize these wounds
Dried and gloom, inflated self image
We did this to ourselves

Now nothing remains
Just wastelands and nuclear winter in flames
Draining the earth for corporate gains
There’s just not not enough for us

Now, faced with our death
Confronting our debt, complacent
Complete disregard for what's next
Scavenge what’s left and bleed the Earth dry
We did this to ourselves

Now nothing remains
Just wastelands and nuclear winter in flames
Draining the earth for corporate gains
There’s just not not enough for us

We live in a tomb
We built ourselves
Squandered what we had

It was so beautiful
Everything we need was just
Laid out before us
And now it's gone
A morose world
As what’s left
We’ve been forgotten

It was so beautiful
Everything we need was just
Laid out before us
And now it's gone
A morose world
As what’s left
We’ve been forgotten
Track Name: Demoralize
And you know you were born into this
Everything you loved comes crashing down
Every memory, every hope and dream
Tremble, your world is trampled in the wake

You don’t know what you’re doing to us
Locked inside the bowels of this world
What will it take to make you see us
Hanging on to every last thread of

Hope
To save our home
To never give up
To fight to survive this
Cope
We’re caught in this war
Whatever it takes
Run or embrace this fate

In the presence of a tragedy
Left in spite
They obliterated every belief
And even though no one deserved this
Life isn’t fair
And nobody cares

Hope
To save our home
To never give up
To fight to survive this
Cope
We’re caught in this war
Whatever it takes
Hold on to this vision of

Hope
To save our home
To never give up
To fight to survive this
Cope
We’re caught in this war
Whatever it takes
Run or embrace this fate
Track Name: Outnumbered
Power
Build a wall, they’ll fund it
Quarantine the fears of the masses
Enslave a nation in the guise of freedom
Then watch the monster you built

Rise, in an instant
The beast that fed you now feeds on you
Maw gaped you fall, bearing witness
To the empathy of few
Now you’ve nowhere to run
Now they’re coming for

War, now life has a price
Profits consume all sense of remorse
Of course, it’s just a kid’s life
A means to an end
Send in more, send them in droves
Wipe that speck off the earth
Nothing but hell will be left in my wake
Outnumbered
Watch the monster I built

Rise, in an instant
The beast that fed you now feeds on you
Maw gaped you fall, bearing witness
To the empathy of few
Now you’ve nowhere to run
Watch your empire fall, in sickness
All eyes turn on you
Now you’ve nowhere to run
From cacophonous war drums

So many years we’ve served you
Taking and taking until you
Took too much we refuse
Pay back all of your dues
You bit the hand that fed you
Took more than you could use
Now I am become death
The destroyer of worlds

Now bear witness
To the death of a nation
A culture, and empire
And your home
