Track Name: Primitive Load
Brace for the moire that comes at the ending
Take comfort that it's the only given
A guarantee
I'm flying on the backs of lesser angels
My feet laden with a primitive load
I can't believe the wreckage I made on the way
I'm in a trance but make no mistake
My eyes feel heavy but my mind is awake
With souls burning up the human inside
Let's consecrate a place to end this mess
I see a secret symmetry
In the shade it's clear that the world is a monarchy
Through the haze of industrial nations
If there's no stopping now we can do anything
You left a trail of decay behind you
We'll ride the thunder, our wild howls announcing us
A cold fury
I'm in a trance but make no mistake
My eyes feel heavy but my mind is awake
With souls burning up the human inside
Let's consecrate a place to end this mess
I see a secret symmetry
In the shade it's clear that the world is a monarchy
Through the haze of industrial nations
If there's no stopping now we can do anything
Track Name: Falsifier
It’s not about what you want anymore
We’ve got a message and a secret word
Head down and move like a chameleon
We'll hit the crowd and let it wash over us
Please breathe slowly, It’s not always right
But if the tide’s with us tonight
We’ll only make it all the way if the Mother swoons
You and I were born for this
We can’t escape our grim purpose
Just react with that instinct
We’ll penetrate the bottom and move up through the topside
Break, don’t be gentle
They’d do the same to you
Flow through the illusion
They won’t see us in the shade of the moonlight
Look at it sideways, the memory of a previous burden
This one might take us to the dark’s zenith
I was never on to hold a grudge, this is logical warfare, it’s white out
We can wait in the fog with our weapons drawn and held level
And hold till you see the breathe of the falsifier and in his eyes you will find the way
So I find myself in the midst of strangers and all this time they thought me weakened form the trials that bore me here
I am coiled to spring, to wreak my vengeance on a prey that’s too distracted by the lights to fight
We were building caves into the hillsides, finding places to hide ourselves from the daylight
Gazing inward to avoid our fate
It was right that we died then
It was right to end our stay
Track Name: Secret in the Basement
Reality separates, compartmentalizing
I am the son of a dreamer and you’re an optimist’s daughter
I got a secret in the basement
It’s something explosive
You won’t want it but it’s too late
Don’t take the alley at this hour, it’s a Tenderloin nightmare
The normal around here is a departure from the structure
I got a secret in the basement
It’s something explosive
You won’t want it but it’s too late
It takes time to relay a state of mind, borderline hopeless
Carletta breaks the wall between souls on fire, visceral insight
Still I struggle through the mask, flesh is a binding
Through the wall, through the wall and into visions strange and terrifying
We’re back to the routine
Making money for the masters
Mariah’s got the sight now
And the prophecy’s coming
It takes time to relay a state of mind, borderline hopeless
Carletta breaks the wall between souls on fire, visceral insight
Still I struggle through the mask, flesh is a binding
Through the wall, through the wall and into visions strange and terrifying
Track Name: Pariah
You can fault me for my imperfections, it’s human nature
You’re a pariah in a social situation that you rule
They talk of loyalty and elocution, you set the tone and it washes them clean
And it was fortune that we connected, it was a fortune but in the end you’re a tortured young man
Your brain gets confused when the walls are coming inward, slowly crushing auras
It’s not unique what you’re feeling but it’s beautiful and perfect, you can contrast it with the better parts
I can’t explain it but we are the centrifuge and eyesight for a world that’s slowing and going blind
And all the opposites apply
We all have the same uncertainty in life
We’re all filled with questions, we age in the same light
I can see myself in the way you writhe
Track Name: Pattern
You be mother nature, I'll be the one who fights
When the smoke clears be sure you're on the right side
There's a quiet in the air with a filthy white fever
Talk of an oasis, first you better learn to survive
Fall on the ground, yeah the industry likes it
It's ok to fuck your public, as long as you mean it
Grab the idol by the throat, before you can move it
Let it cover your eyes
I am come to break you
I have the will to decimate you
This is the last time that I will recreate you
Fill in the void or let the chaos arrive
It's so easy to get caught in the moment
With your hands on the eye and your feet in the pattern
As the sparks scurry up and ozone fills the air
You can do anything, You can do anything
