LYRICS

01. Restless Sleep/Eyes Wide Open

 

A flash of light in the dead of night, no one but me seems to mind

Another shot, another dead man, forgotten and left behind

Fucking corruption feeds the pigs and the glutton, eight out of ten take the bribe

How could you sleep while this shit goes on? No one but me seems to mind

 

You don’t dare look straight at the source, you might not like what lies

You sleep while the world spins out of control, I’ve got my eyes open wide

 

Morally bankrupt men indulge in the spoils, that only they can afford

To the black market go all the human traffickers, where they collect their reward

A child cries, a future of suffering, their human rights are ignored

Those who have escaped, where will they go? No one will open the door

 

You don’t dare look straight at the source, you might not like what lies

You sleep while the world spins out of control, I’ve got my eyes open wide

I can’t take it any longer, something has got to change

Wake up from your oblivion this world could be more than just another extinction event if you open your eyes

 

Paramilitary perversions, eradicate and divide

Borders enforced to tear apart families, those who flee violence are only sent back to die

And yet you turn a blind eye while the whole fucking world is burning

We’re at the point of no return, it’s now or never

 

You don’t dare look straight at the source, you might not like what lies

You sleep while the world spins out of control, I’ve got my eyes open wide

I can’t take it any longer, something has got to change

Wake up from your oblivion this world won’t be more than just another extinction event if you don’t open your eyes

 

Open your eyes

 

 

 

02. Forsaken Lambs

 

Devotion misled abused and exploited by those who wrote the book

Cyclical game, suffer just like the lamb

Extortion at the threat of eternal damnation, the masses piss money away

You’ll do the same as we show you the way

 

We are your god

 

You’re the first in line, now give and you’ll be divine

The sick will give us power and in return we make them martyrs

In the end of times we’ll live and they will die

The riches they spent will help them repent prepared for the promises we made

We are your god and your light fades away, forsaken as we thrive

 

Communion, an unfit substitute for wellness

A means to menticide, our wallets grow wide, your stomachs atrophy

 

We are your god

 

Indoctrinate the sheep, their harvest is what we reap

Subservience is rewarded with the privilege of expiation

For their sins be tried, confessing genocide

All will be forgiven, an evil man may get away with it

We are your god and your light fades away, forsaken as we thrive

 

We welcome new members of the congregation

We welcome new blood, new green

New greed

 

We are your god and you’ll bow to us

 

You’re the first in line, now give and you’ll be divine

The sick will give us power and in return we make them martyrs

In the end of times, we’ll live and they will die

The riches they spent will help them repent prepared for the promises we made

We are your god, and your light fades away, forsaken as we thrive

 

Communion, an unfit substitute for wellness

We welcome new blood, new green

We are your god and you’ll bow to us

 

 

03. Drag You Down

 

Overdose, in a gas station bathroom, discovered by a mother and her child

Resuscitate, lucky to be alive, a second longer and brain damage more than mild

The very next day, you’re running away with dirty money stolen for your next hit

When tears run down your eyes deep down you realize that you’re not in control

 

And you’re drowning in them while they drag you down

 

Poisoned, you just drank way too much, your so called friends left you in bed to sleep it off

Face up, choking on your own sick, discovered rushed by emts and stomach pumped

The very next day, discharged and friends celebrate with shots on them at happy hour but you protest

Then tears run down your eyes as you eat up your lies cos you’re not in control

 

And you’re drowning in them while they drag you down

 

Your life is void, your life destroyed, your life devoid, your life’s a void

Dragging you down

 

 

04. Sunken Beliefs

 

Befallen by the shepherd, they try to find guidance

In the noose, they offer sanctum, protection in Christ

Live by the light, never hide behind, never lie  

 

Liars

 

Masters of deception, in a profound place

Preaching with no practice, they lie, they hide their true face

They’ve fallen for the facade, they lie to contain us

In the truth of their invention, unquestioning trust

They try to hide what’s inside

 

Sanctum the panopticon, the pews serve the purpose

They’ll never know what they do not see

They’ve fallen for the facade, they lie to derail us

From the truth of their intentions, perversions of Christ

They try to hide what’s inside

 

There were never any guards, and yet the prisoners obey

This flooded prison their tomb, kept there by blind faith

 

Lies

 

And now the shroud has been pulled back, so those enjailed may finally see

That there were never any guards, and yet the suffering has yet to cease

Abuse, sexual, systemic, gone unabated for years

Injustice is carried out, there’ll be no punishment

 

Will it all have been for nothing?

 

 

 

05. Mistaken for Terrorists

 

Condemned for not looking like you

It makes no difference where they’re from or in what they believe

The blame falls directly on them

For the actions of madmen, they’ve been falsely labeled

By bigotry, victimized for a different creed

The color of their skin finds them guilty of sin

While innocent people die, provocateurs know the reason why

And the cattle can’t but help to find there’s something to believe in

Mistake them for terrorists

 

And while the mass shootings don’t stop, you demonize foreigners

Ignoring the sick fucks committing more hate crimes

They pay on this day, they can’t get away from the violence

Committed by your kind, committed

By iniquity, victims of brutality

The color of their skin binds their will to begin retribution

While innocent people die, provocateurs know the reason why

And the cattle can’t but help to find there’s something to believe in

Mistake them for terrorists

 

Nothing will change, only more hate

False acts of progress followed by complacency

Disenfranchised, nobody cared

When it happened to you then suddenly it matters

Another time, another psycho

This time he gets stopped by a man who was packing

Police show up and on sight open fire

They killed the wrong guy, the shooter still lives, one more injustice

Mistaken for terrorists

 

And no the mass shootings won’t stop, stop blaming the wrong ones

Ignoring the sick fucks who shouldn’t have had guns

Enough is enough, but still you wont act

You rather a scapegoat than to face the facts

And the fact of the matter is that you are guilty

Complicit, enabling this bloodshed

The real killers are getting away with it

While you look the wrong way

There is no solace, more injustice

Mistake them for terrorists

 

 

06. Overtoun

 

I’m drawn to death

Freed from a life of suffering, my final breath will bring peace

Freedom from strife above mortal sting, my final path, sweet release

 

We’re severed and decay from society

And trapped in an endless race just to make ends meet

No way out I want to die, there is no happiness there is no reason why

Isolated from our loved ones we simply are trying to survive

At the cost of our minds

 

I’ve died many times, my life’s been deprived

We deserve better, may life’s sheath slip

Right off this mortal plane

Driven in so deep, only one way

My finale, my final death

 

Romantic binds that break and leave us bereft

Annulled, our hearts will ache and leave nothing left

There’s no point I want to die, there is no happiness there is no reason why

Maybe after this is over I’ll finally at long last arrive

At what I’ve been denied

 

I’ve died many times, my life’s been deprived

We deserve better, may life’s sheath slip

Right off this mortal plane

Driven in so deep, only one way

My finale, my final death

 

Overtoun, a bridge to the otherworld

 

07. Funeral Masses (Instrumental)

 

 

 

08. Aftermath

 

Wartime has ended in blight, both sides deprived of their right to peaceful life

Aftermath of bloodbath is famine and ruin

Children, they starve to the bone, breadlines with nothing at home

Displaced, whole villages razed, refugees far from where they were raised

 

Pull the trigger that kills, it’ll be worth it, the suffering it yields

Save the world from ourselves, kill us all then at long last we’ll be one

 

Wartime has ended their sight, both eyes destroyed in their fight to see this life

Aftermath of bloodbath is trauma and disfigurement

Driven by PTSD, take aim, end the suffering

Widows, they all dress in black, grieving with no turning back

 

Pull the trigger that kills, it’ll be worth it, the suffering it yields

Save the world from ourselves, kill us all then at long last we’ll be one

 

We suffer under peace

And so we wait for another war

09. Dead End (Instrumental)
