Track Name: Propaganda
My name, is heard,
your god, it hurts.

Around, the world,
for days before I broke the silence.

A chorus of the sane,
as I rust away my chains,
they say I found my peace,
but in my chest my heart is angry.

I refuse to be your toy,
not just a pretty boy,
these teeth were made to bite,
don't fall for your own propaganda.

The chorus of the sane,
rhetoric that I disdain,
with their fist around your leash,
I can feel the vultures start to circle.
Track Name: Welcome to my Reality
I've tasted sweetness,
a bitter delight,
licked my fingers,
to clean away my vice.

Drink chilled champagne,
from a stapled glass,
and banged my head against the sidewalk.

Got a head wound,
one way to greet reality,
got a bad mood,
and I'm afraid it's clear to see.

Has life been good to you?
If you were me you might,
say it was cruel.

It broke it,
it made me,
the man,
I had to be.

Distorted,
uncontrolled,
maniac,
microphone.

Tell me the truth,
do you lie?
Tell me a lie,
am I bleeding?

Tell me you think you understand me,
welcome to my reality.

Drug me, shut me up inside my cell,
welcome to my reality.

Tell me what you think is wrong with me,
welcome to my reality.

Drug me, give me my own personal hell,
welcome to my reality.

I've seen a cage without any walls,
I've seen the sun shining bright in the night.
I've heard the screams from the ghosts of the dead,
but the living scare me the most of all.

I've hurt myself as much as anyone else,
dragged a knife across my skin,
punched a wall, felt it break,
another finger, I don't need it.

I've been torn up, burnt alive,
in all the dreams that I remember.

It's not easy being sane when everybody thinks you're crazy.

body crawling, brain in chaos,
everybody, you're all poison.

I'm the monster, in the whisper,
someone save me, someone kill me.
Track Name: Another Empty Day
You've got your feet on the floor,
you've got your head in the clouds,
there but for the grace of god go I.

Never look where you are,
you only see where you've been,
I don't know how you can live this way.

My friend.
Look me in the eye When you cry.
when you play,
my friend,
look me in the eye and pray, another empty day.

Don't you look so pretty,
wrapped up in a bow,
dressed in all your finery with nowhere to go.

Tell yourself you're worth it,
all the diamonds in the sky,
no sense of proportion,
you never wonder why.

My friend.
Look me in the eye When you cry.
when you play,
my friend,
look me in the eye and pray, another empty day.

You've got your body in chains,
you've got your mind in a cage,
I can see you're broken up inside.

I wonder what you can dream,
I wonder who you could be,
if only you would try.

My friend.
Look me in the eye When you cry.
when you play,
my friend,
look me in the eye and pray, another empty day.

You've got your feet on the floor,
you've got your head in the clouds,
there but for the grace of god go I.

Never look where you are,
you only see where you've been,
I don't know how you can live this way.

My friend.
Look me in the eye When you cry.
when you play,
my friend,
look me in the eye and pray, another empty day.

My friend.
Look me in the eye When you cry.
when you play,
my friend,
look me in the eye and pray, another empty day.

My friend. (my friend)
Look me in the eye When you cry. (when you cry)
when you play, (when you play)
my friend, (my friend)
look me in the eye and pray, another empty day.

Another empty day.
Track Name: Little Metal Spiders
All we wanted,
give us a little relief,
from the lies on the TV screen.

This is nothing,
scream at the boot on your neck,
your little cell will fill with dreams.

Birth a revolution,
turn up the noise in your head,
the only one you can believe.

Perfect situation,
nothing to lose in the end,
when rebels dance and jackboots leave.

How can you see, there's nothing to me?
Just a black hole mind with a fantasy,
I hope you know we see it coming,
won't take your new disease.

Standing alone, and understanding,
zombie see and zombie do.
Don't you get it? we don't want it,
I'd hate to be like you.

A prisoner in your own world,
you're turning blue you're turning cold,
how can I believe that you're not dead?

I've got this implication,
you can change the situation,
little metal spiders in your head.

Dance little rats,
I'll play the piper tonight,
lead you through a field of dreams.

We'll strike the clock,
shake out the mice at the top,
find out who they pretend to be.

8 little legs, burrow in your head,
building little webs to trap your mind,
stealing all that makes you breathe,
stealing all that you want to be.
Take it back, signal back,
stab a fucker in the back,
take their walls and paint them black.

They don't want you, they want your head,
don't care if you're alive or dead,
man or woman, left or white,
don't give a shit for black and white.
The facts are wrong, and I don't care,
don't follow me, 'cause I'm not there,
I'm buried in my lab, making a new disease.
Track Name: Tearing Up The Floor
Got no style and got no class,
whiskey in a dirty glass,
punks and nerds that you adore,
watch us tearing up the floor.

I've seen the way you look at us,
doe eyed and so confused,
nervous and so restrained,
tell me what you've got to lose.

I've got a feeling you don't know,
just how good this could be,
throw caution to the wind,
have some fun and dance with me.

Got no style and got no class,
whiskey in a dirty glass,
punks and nerds that you adore,
watch us tearing up the floor.

Got no style and got no class,
whiskey in a dirty glass,
punks and nerds that you adore,
watch us tearing up the floor.

Old school style, kick some ass,
drop your drink and break the glass,
I've got just what you came here for,
solo on C64.
Track Name: Nasty
Pump that stereo,
come on let's get nasty,
light's out, here we go,
I love it when you're filthy.

Hands up, hit the dirt,
come on let's get nasty,
I swear it won't hurt,
I'm gonna rock your world.

Equalize, conceptualize,
read the beat between the lines,
let the rhythm be the martyr,
marching on your paranoia.

Drums in your head, kick made of lead,
ride the rhythm straight to bed,
an overdose of undertones,
arpeggiator overthrows.

Everything that you can hear,
your speakers whisper crystal clear,
a goth rock shock sparks you with fear,
the nightclub rocks when you get here.

At the end, the lights go out,
everybody scream and shout,
you ask your dancing partner out,
to get more nasty.

Pump that stereo,
come on let's get nasty,
light's out, here we go,
I love it when you're filthy.

Hands up, hit the dirt,
come on let's get nasty,
I swear it won't hurt,
I'm gonna rock your world.

In the eyes of god we can be obscene,
but I sold my soul to a drum machine,
let's get new romantic, electric and tragic,
let me slice your chest up and remix your heartbeat.
Track Name: Crowd of Fools
Bring the noise now, can't you see?
Methodical catastrophe,
a crowd of ghouls on ecstasy,
dancing on all hallows eve.

Hear the crowd shouting my name,
puts my vanity to shame,
to think that you might break the rules,
dancing in a crowd of fools.

So many eyes among the flesh,
a thought process with bated breath,
a darkened sky with blinding jewels,
we decry, we are the fools.

Have you read the papers dear?
It seems the end is always near,
would you act on this today,
or scream and hope it goes away?
Track Name: A Price Paid Gladly
When my heart beats, it beats for thee,
fallen angel, with plastic wings.
you're some kind of miracle to look at me,
behind those peaceful eyes.

You held my mind still,
so I could live again,
I still love you with all my heart.

Though I can't tell you,
I feel in debt today,
for a price I'd gladly pay.

Passing names and faces, but you remain,
you're my anesthetic, you relieve my pain.
Whether my lover or my friend,
I'll always be here for you.

Give me another day, another chance to love.
Give me another heart, another heart to beat.
Give me back, all the days that I've forgotten,
I want to remember her kiss.

Walk in the rain, to clear my head,
I'm not ashamed of the life that I've lived so far,
but without my greatest friend,
I wouldn't be here to tell my tale to you.

Oh, the things she means to me.
Track Name: Upgrade Me Deeper
Break me, rebuild my soul,
this body has got to go,
replace all of my fractured bones,
I want to live I want to know.

Where was god when I was born?
The day that I was torn,
from the womb in a sterile room,
unbaptized and looking at you.

I've heard you heathens shout,
to throw the science out,
what to do when the world breaks you?
Give up the lie and we'll fix you too.

Upgrade me deeper,
biological creature,
upgrade me deeper,
my body's my machinery.

Analyze my discontent,
debug and I'll repent,
how can steel have a soul?
My spirit is electrical.

I found a cure for death,
an exploit in my breath,
I traded my immortal soul,
for body parts with cruise control.

With our new technology, we can live forever,
embrace the singularity, my personal endeavor.
I can be a god now, bathed in radiation,
wait for the apocalypse, and laugh in the face of the devil.
Track Name: Ashes in the Wind
Metaphysical in remorse I'm,
empty deep down inside.
A Nihilist, I refuse to frown so,
bury me underground.

Afraid to die or afraid to live,
are you afraid of all the things you don't know?
A wave of paranoia, you dream of your death,
ashes in the wind, let it go.

Not gonna live forever and ever,
my days are numbered as much as I wish,
I've got no time to waste over Heaven.
I'll let it go, ashes in the wind.

Hands are turning and we keep spending,
all the cash you don't have.
When you're dead, who collects your debts then?
Body snatchers be damned.

If god perceives me then may he forgive me,
but I don't see him around.
The church is empty, the nightclub has plenty of sweat hitting the ground.
Track Name: say my Piece
Looking out a broken window, I can see so clearly,
ideas fractured long ago, returning to me.
I wonder where you are now, are you lonely?
I'd like to throw my voice at you, and say my piece.

Born to a loser,
got a lifetimes worth of spite,
I won't bite my tongue,
I will say my piece tonight.

Thanks for the damage, dad, I appreciate it,
of all the problems I've had, I suffer them for you,
so I can say that I stand, where you kept falling,
to be a better man than you could ever be.

Thanks for the affliction,
it's always served me well,
I still feel your sickness,
your blood in my veins.

I'd burn you out if I could,
bleed you out of me,
I'd die to see you suffer,
you're my enemy.

I could be just like you,
it scares me half to death,
I'd cut the tongue from my mouth if,
your words were on my breath.

And pain is still too good for you,
but I guess it will do,
for all the things you've put me through,
no one will miss a loser like you.
Track Name: Halloween
My beautiful Halloween,
I can hear it, the night comes a-calling.
My beautiful Halloween,
as I watch it all go away, go away.

Go away.

Trick or treat, we'll never be the same,
little gifts I gave to you.
Turn the cheek, a fool by any other name,
would you swallow a razor too?

Heathens dressed up like superman,
the little kids don't know what they got into.
It's my party my Halloween,
you're gonna love the scars that I would give you.

My beautiful Halloween,
I can hear the witches still chanting.
My beautiful Halloween,
as I watch it all go away.
My beautiful Halloween,
I can see the fires still burning.
My beautiful Halloween.
as I watch it all go away.

Catch this, see the living dressed up like ghosts,
pull a trick, make a baby cry.

Cut up, hiding in a church for the night,
no safe haven from our delight.

Don't run, only hurts 'til you start to smile,
love the monsters surrounding you.

Don't lie, a hole where a soul should have been,
beautiful on Halloween.
Track Name: Daystar Rising
Steal yourself away,
Lucifer hear what I say,
I've been silent for to long,
time for me to right that wrong.

Daystar rising,
oceans turn to dust,
lesser key of Solomon,
knowledge never lost.

Bring those demons to the wire,
chaos magic lead the way,
gotta drag the oldest fire,
back into the light of day.

And I project what I regret,
the cross that burns into my flesh,
got a diabolic plan,
to burn the land.
Track Name: Who I Am
Dangerous boys,
they're making dangerous noise,
with a pop, pop gun,
bang bang, break the institution.

Dangerous girls,
in a dangerous world,
with a pop, pop gun,
bang bang, break the institution.

A reason to speak,
another reason to weep,
another day on your back,
bang bang, it's your body.

Don't pretend,
you've got no rights to defend,
you've got to stand your ground,
bang bang, no more victims.

I don't care for the games you play,
it's not my fault I'm built this way,
I just want to be,
who I am.

Hate the hate,
don't have to hide your face,
we've got to cry out loud,
I won't be your victim.

Learn to see,
the venom in bigotry,
and don't you bite your tongue,
under the surface, we're all human.

Black or white,
boy or girl,
Israelian or Palestinian,
don't be a social carcinogen.

We all feel pain,
from the things people say,
with their sharp, forked tongues,
don't you blame the victim.
Track Name: The Torment
Take all that I really am,
and see the shadow of the man,
tell me I can't be this way,
that it's the price I have to pay.

Well I refuse your siren song,
the angels hide, they're never gone,
they came to tell me what to be,
this torment is my destiny.

In the dark do you see ghosts?
I can feel the holy spirit.
chased by celestial hosts,
when they whisper, I can hear it.

suffer well for all my sins,
I refuse their final judgement.
damned by their testament,
these angels are my torment.

Cut me, I'll refuse to bleed,
follow, I'll refuse to lead.
I'll fight their righteous fury,
'til it finally consumes me.

I'm a rebel, I'm the devil,
refused to kill the angels.
Been cut off from the father,
cut me off at the wings.

Deus.
Maladictus.
Deus.
Deus maladictus est.

Religiously a misanthrope,
culturally a cut throat,
I understand the reasons,
but reality can lie.

Heart says ready,
mind says go,
ride the psycho rodeo,
Saint Peter at the gates won't give me the time of day.

Who could carry a mind so heavy?
filled with brimstone to top.
I'm not ready, my hands aren't steady,
but dammit I'm coming if you're ready or not.

A little less volume if you please,
voices break me to my knees,
one day I'll find that sweet relief,
I dare to tread where angels leave.

I corrupt everything I touch,
turn your glory into misery,
and for this my punishment,
mock the madman as a visionary.

I'm so blind I see too much,
all this horror I can't touch,
every day they're drawing near,
these angels come to spread their fear.
Track Name: Destiny? Oh Please
Down, down, deeper down,
fiddle while Rome is burning.
find someone you can hold,
give in to your urges.

Sharp tongue, never quits,
robots and spooky monsters,
inside my own head,
let's party, hit the deck.

Laser light is burning bright,
light your candles, it's all over.
A burnt out husk of destiny.
Destiny? Oh please.

I don't care if,
my words don't last forever.
I'll be dancing,
for now until it's over.

Oh damn, here it comes,
somebody dropped the bomb,
mushroom cloud, I'm in love,
clean the slate for everyone.

No remorse, no regrets,
no credit cards, or their debts now,
nobody left to save you from,
being burned like everyone.
