I can’t believe in someone That stands back and watches children die And that brings cancer into our lives And if he exists, he’s your God, and not mine These lips are sealed no more If this is your work, you have really fucked up Millions have died to protect what’s right That’s what they believed and it’s just not right The scripts that show your work and boast of a return Well they’re all false Just like your presence around this world Prove to us that I am wrong That thing you believe in is a knock off God That thing you believe in is a knock off God Burn every book with a controlling man in the sky Maybe that will slow down the spreading of lies Burn every book with a controlling man in the sky It’s got to that point so control your own life Supposed to be a copy of you And I guess that explains all the evil that consumes this place we call our home I refuse to believe your existence to save my own Supposed to be a copy of you And I guess that explains all the evil that consumes this place we call our home I refuse to believe your existence to save my own (To save my own) Parasitic thoughts just don’t belong Knew it was all lies all along No longer care to bite my tongue That thing you believe in is a knock off God That thing you believe in is a knock off God That thing you believe in is a knock off God

Ded 03:56 video
Subliminal messages force fed Overindulge until you're dead Do you believe in their lies? Do you believe in their magic? Subliminal messages force fed Overindulge until you're dead I must confess It's time I got this off my chest Express with every breath Until there's not one left Never accept They're just the blessings of a jester that we must reject That we must protest I must resist It's time I took this on the chin How ignorance is bliss How hard the truth still hits I will admit I am obsessed with a feeling that does not exist That I must resist I will admit I am obsessed with a feeling that does not exist That I can’t resist Don't think Self destructive I'm in the storm with an umbrella being taken So lost Not productive Left the shores to find north without a compass Fuck this I'm going in Raising fists and starting pits And causing havoc like a hurricane Fuck this I'm going in Bringing mayhem in the mist And causing havoc like a hurricane Do you believe in their lies? Do you believe in their magic? Subliminal messages force fed Overindulge until you're dead Do you believe in their lies? Do you believe in their magic? Subliminal messages force fed Overindulge until you're dead Lined up like a gun to my head Better pull the fucking trigger and make this floor red Lined up like a gun to my head, Better pull the fucking trigger I’d rather be dead In their lies In their magic In their lies In their magic Do you believe in their lies? Do you believe in their magic? Do you believe in their lies? Do you believe in their magic? Subliminal messages force fed Overindulge until you're dead

Gravity 04:09 video
So filled with evil, and no way to set it free. No father can take these sins from me. You’ve got to be a bigger shark to survive these seas. And I’m like Jaws geez, you can’t survive against me. Concealed as a prisoner of this brain for an age but today the eagle soars out of the cage. The tether has frayed the sparks light up the dark. And Ignite this blast and ride this while it stills last. I press A to continue. Failed to see that today the light's on. Actually, in real life, this file is corrupted. Self destructive, abrupt and lacking fucks to give. It’s been a while since I felt this way. I hope this feeling is here to stay. (And I hope it’s here to stay because) Not even gravity can keep me down today. Dark clouds part the skies. For the first time in years the suns started to shine. (Bright lights illuminate the night) Not even gravity can keep me down today. Nothing on this continent could knock my confidence at this moment I’m on top of this, I am done with the monotonous concoctions the shit that needs no introductions. But how does it function? How does the mind decide the state of its own insides? And today it’s on my side, but tomorrow. I’ll be sinking to the bottom in the high tides. Not even gravity can keep me down today. It’s been a while since I felt this way. I hope this feeling is here to stay. (And I hope it’s here to stay because) Not even gravity can keep me down today. Dark clouds part the skies. For the first time in years the suns started to shine. (Bright lights illuminate the night) Not even gravity can keep me down today. Not even gravity can keep me down today. It’s been a while since I felt this way. I hope this feeling is here to stay. (And I hope it’s here to stay because) Not even gravity can keep me down Dark clouds part the skies. For the first time in years the suns started to shine. (Bright lights illuminate the night) Not even gravity can keep me down today.

Superluminal 04:06
(Take it all away from me) Mind is racing with no slow motion in sight Superluminal thoughts rush past until the daylight (Take it all away from me) Mind is racing with no slow motion in sight Superluminal thoughts rush past until the daylight Slow breathing Start feeling at ease and it’s beating Starts speeding the feeling of seeking A meaning is repeating This drifting mind has started misleading My mind is getting sick of this Just too focused on the specifics It’s like I’m processing hieroglyphics Now's not the time to be analytical So that’s why I’m skeptical That if there is an end It’s not lined up in my visual Just keep staring up at the ceiling Feeling defeated so I dismiss it all There is no meaning I just want to turn off at the socket And rest these eyes this evening That’s a a façade that I can’t believe in This mind is seemingly deceitful Good job It feels like it is running but it would not seem so today I feel like this could wait But I’m not at the wheel of the vessel So let’s move your way Good job It feels like it is running but it would not seem so today I feel like this could wait But I’m not at the wheel of the vessel So let’s move your way (Take it all away from me) Mind is racing with no slower motion in sight Superluminal thoughts rush past until the daylight (Take it all away from me) Mind is racing with no slower motion in sight Superluminal thoughts rush past until the daylight I’m not I’m not in control of the one that you know I’m not I’m not in control of the one that you know Slow breathing Start feeling at ease and it’s beating Starts speeding the feeling of seeking A meaning is repeating This Drifting mind has started misleading Fast breathing Don’t feel at ease and it’s beating still speeding the feeling of seeking a meaning is screaming This mind will take me to the afterlife (Take it all away from me) Mind is racing with no slow motion in sight Superluminal thoughts rush past until the daylight (Take it all away from me) Mind is racing with no slow motion in sight Superluminal thoughts rush past until the daylight

My vision must be failing Or is this really what I see? Is this truly what’s going on now if so Then take these eyes, delete my mind I will become the night How the fuck did you end up with the power to control this fate Decisions that are not yours to make When you’re clueless on the matter that they are based You’ve burnt enough now with your greed We will never surrender we will not give in Fight this until our knuckles bleed No white flags raised You try your best now to mislead We will never surrender we will not give in Will fight until our rights are freed No white flags raised Relieve me of the burden Tear out this disease Is this fake? I’m not so certain anymore Will never fall to my knees What happens when there’s no world left to dig? What happens when armed countries conflict? What happens when there’s no homes left to give? When there’s talk but it’s never just honest? What happens when there’s no more world to dig? What happens when armed countries conflict? What happens when there’s no more homes to give? When there’s talk but it’s never just honest? Stand straight Arms raised We will not surrender Have faith Flags blazed We will not surrender We will not surrender We will not surrender My vision must be failing Or is this really what I see? Is this truly what’s going on now if so No white flags raised You’ve burnt enough now with your greed We will never surrender we will not give in Fight this until our knuckles bleed No white flags raised You try your best now to mislead We will never surrender we will not give in Will fight until our rights are freed No white flags raised

Daydreaming beyond belief Wondering in a haze of your own making This modern tragedy of your mental faculties inescapably imprisoned by a screen You are a digital analogy Bound by the choices you think you've made Cascade in a cityscape Farewell to the life you've made escape New reverie ontology I am your lucid dream Ascension serene And I'm just a memory Upon a shard in the sky and canopy It's all that you and I will ever be Overwhelming me completely With visions of things that they say I need This is more than I can take Farewell to this life I make escape Sleepwalk into the future Urban animals running till we are inert We will never learn with our heads in the clouds we choke until we cease to breathe New reverie ontology I am your lucid dream New reverie ontology I am your lucid dream Ascension serene From the darkest streets to a lucid dream Hereafter severance from our dependence on prescribed formula I break free from the world Interlinked chemicals Embraced in a fleeting moment I'm just a memory Upon a shard in the sky and canopy It's all that you and I will ever be

Smile Thief 04:41
Scarred up, this armour's seen a few wars You will never see me bowing down on all fours Never see me keeping track of the scores on the doors Got much bigger fish to fry and none of them are yours It’s time to get back in your pram and stop chucking your toys Every word expelled from the lungs is just white noise Deploys a sense that these words of yours are just void A gap filler, utter nonsense with emotion of an android And I ain’t done yet I’ve got a little bit of fight left Maybe just a couple more things to get off my chest Maybe just a couple more things to get off my chest And I ain’t done yet I’ve got a fuck tonne of fight left I mean a war's worth this ain’t a side quest I’m hitting hard coz every day is still a fucking test Fuck this, fuck you, fuck all the grief Fuck this, fuck you, fuck everything It’s about time that I cut ties You are every single reason why I want to be alone Because of you and your fucked lies I was deceived from day one, now it’s time to suck it up but just say my goodbyes Supposed to be on the same team, but you’re so against me and now I’m running out of life line All I’ve ever done is try to please and cater for your needs and I can’t even fulfil mine Fuck this, fuck you, fuck all the grief You are nothing more than a smile thief Fuck this, fuck you, fuck everything Could have the best hand and still can’t win And I ain’t done yet I’ve got a little bit of fight left Maybe just a couple more things to get off my chest Maybe just a couple more things to get off my chest All I’ve ever done is try to please and cater for your needs and I can’t even fulfil mine All I’ve ever done is try to please and cater for your needs and I can’t even fulfil mine It’s about time that I cut ties You are every single reason why I want to be alone Because of you and your fucked lies I was deceived from day one, and now it’s time to suck it up and just say my goodbyes Supposed to be on the same team, but you’re so against me now I’m running out of life line All I’ve ever done is try to please and cater for needs and I can’t even fulfil mine Fuck this, fuck you, fuck all the grief You are nothing more than a smile thief Fuck this, fuck you, fuck everything Could have the best hand and still can’t win Fuck this, fuck you, fuck all the grief You are nothing more than a smile thief

The Fallen 03:16
What if no one's entitled to happiness But it doesn’t happen Like it is supposed to This brain doesn’t process these thoughts in a good way, Just filled with the shame, and regret and the blame and forget all change of the positive ways and recharge in a way that’s unhealthy and will leave me astray and I’ll deal with the pain I am the cause of my rise and my fall and I hide from it all like a ghost Can’t pass this feeling on to someone else Especially not my closest so I keep this locked up to myself Can’t rest, keep tossing and turning It’s my name that the nightmares are calling Can’t fall when you’re already falling Just can’t break the broken Stabbing in the dark trying to mask what’s going on I can only take this for so long Can’t fall when you’re already falling Just can’t break the broken Thought I had risen from the bottom, but here I go again Depths have got my number calling me like an old friend Relive these wretched ways And they keep calling me over and over and over again Can’t rest, keep tossing and turning It’s my name that the nightmares are calling Can’t fall when you’re already falling Just can’t break the broken Thought I had risen from the bottom, but here I go again The depths have got my number calling me like an old friend Relive the wretched ways And the keep calling me over and over and over again

There’s no escaping this. There’s no escaping this. Just don’t remember a thing. What did I see. Does this belong to a memory or was it a dream? Where I’ve never been. Cut down the tree. Killing everything you believed in. Just a digit now. Burn the bridges down. Answers can’t be found. Just a digit now. Burn the bridges down. Answers can’t be found. No air to breathe. Inside of me is empty. No air to breathe. Inside of me is empty. Brought out the worst in me. Brought out the worst in me. Brought out the worst in me. Brought out the Never get to be forgotten. Rotten, hidden at the bottom. Stopped feeding to the problem. I cannot see the path that would guide me. Brought out the worst in me. Brought out the worst Never get to be forgotten. Rotten, hidden at the bottom. Stopped feeding to the problem. There’s no escaping this There’s no escaping this There’s no escaping this There’s no escaping this (No escape, no escape) There’s no escaping this (I tried but can't escape, I tried buy can't escape) There’s no escaping this Memories creep up sometimes Appear at the back of my mind So toxic, but so was I So toxic, but so was I

Dear Hazel 04:36
Dear Hazel, First of all, I need to start with an apology And I know I wasn’t the easiest teen to raise, and I mean it, honestly And it’s not like I’ve grown to be a lawyer or an engineer But you say you’re still proud, and that makes me grin like a moron from ear to ear I would not be half the man I am today without your years of guidance And if you wanted me to drop the mic for good, I would do in seconds and live in silence But I know you would never advise that you have influenced me to be the best human that I can be Even musically, I used to take your Bowie CDs when I was 13, and Pink Floyd too I could hear familiar songs at the end of our road on the way home from school It was then I knew you used to borrow my music too, and my friends thought that was rad And then you showed Sleepy Skeletor to anyone who would give it the time The neighbours must of thought you was mad, the amount of times I hear you blast it from the kitchen From your CD system, and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this one Dear Hazel, You’ve been there while I’ve been in the darkest of places And I know you’ve had your own number of demons to face with And I just want you to know that I’m here, and I’m proud of you too For everything you’ve helped me through, this is an ode to you To you I dedicate everything, and anything that I achieve You keep telling me I can do anything as long as I believe in what I do For everything you help me through, this is an ode to you No matter what the weather you always seem to bring the sunshine along You deliver warmth and smiles when I feel that all hope is gone Through Thick and thin, through old and new For everything you help me through, this is an ode to you This is an ode to you Dear Hazel, It doesn’t matter you get mind and Kyle’s names mixed up I know he would be in the club that agrees with everything I have put in this tune You know it’s true, fuck we’re all proud of you For everything you helped us through, this is an ode to you This is an ode to you Dear Hazel
