Track Name: Mud at You
You’re so cool
I see the world through you
Mystical
You guide us past every night and dread
You’re the truth
Around me and within
Rescue me
Before dawn or let me drown insane
Save me
Awake me now
I’m here
To redeem all the time that was taken from me
Show me the way
To heal
I have found what I lost and forever I’m awake
Take me to
The place where I belong
There’s a crow
The glare of which can only make me strong
Meditation
Has cleared my mind of flaws
No infliction
Can penetrate the strength within my soul
Track Name: Humanphobic (to Mary Shelley)
I stopped living in fear
Suspicious and unclear
Much too close we are to the end
So close we just can’t tell
A materialistic world
Won’t save us from the storm
Can’t we try to understand?
We’re fanning the flames of hell
Must we burn?
Stop the cause stop the fall
Patiently witnessing society
The poor the fool
We are all united by this fight
They bleached our mind and fed us scum
Still we think this is alright
They clench their fist on harmless bones
Nothing swiftly deters my discontent
‘For nothing contributes
So much to tranquillize the mind
As a steady purpose
A point on which the mind can fix
Its intellectual eye’
A steady purpose
We sold god
Yes we did
Track Name: For All The Wrong Reasons
Get off the switch
Don’t stay
I’m out of this
Don’t stay
I hate your bliss
Don’t claim to know what you want
Don’t stay
Get out my way
Off my way
Don’t stay
Your misery
Don’t stay
I live in it
Don’t claim to be what you’re not
Don’t stay
Get out my way
Won’t you try to realise?
You’ve been standing right by my side
Day and night
Still you don’t know
That I’m sick
I feel sick
I’m so sick of you
All of you
And what you do
Leave me alone
Spitting out nothing but your fucking lies
Lies over lies
I’m so sick of you
Leave me alone
Get off the switch
Track Name: Eclipse
Fear’s the night when insensitive
Rolls the dice off the preacher’s hand
Conscious mind he instigates choler
There I lay as he walks away
But I’m blooming within
Something’s right or
Maybe I’m living a dream
I resume and unfold
Shields of dark in my heart
Cast in darkness
I walk the path hell-deep within myself
Strained I sway
I can’t resist the forces leading my way
Ruthless and cold
The preacher’s next to me and the dice is thrown
Out of control
Burning fire all around
Comatose I hit the ground
I’m forsaken
I’m forgotten
I am cast in darkness
Something’s wrong or
Maybe I’m living a dream
I resume and unfold
Shields of dark in my heart
Such a precious thing
Cast in darkness
I walk the path hell-deep within myself
Strained I sway
I can’t resist the forces leading my way
Ruthless and cold
The preacher’s next to me and the dice is thrown
Out of control
Track Name: 2015
News go by on TV
Nothing’s left on my wall
I’ll carry on as they say
Whilst degrade is taking over
How could I ever see a light past the wicked eye?
A dream of truthfulness detached from reality
I came across it once but can’t recall the look
Just a feeling of calm and beauty
No gravity or sense to life
If only I could trust
That better days will come
I’d never lose my hope
To find the hidden sunlit world
Beyond our mind
