Track Name: Obediently Into Nowhere
Modern society, spinning and confused
In capitalism's chokehold, lied to and abused
Popular media reinforces that politicians hold our fate
Expected to pick through whatever bullshit they serve us on a plate
Most people aren't aware of it
Live a whole life just to sleep through it

Spoon-fed hapless drones stumble obediently into nowhere
Convinced of their ineffectiveness, convinced the rich will play fair
Just swimming around in shit
Can't seem to get enough of it
Fuck

What's your life for? Why are you even here?
To line someone else's pockets while you hide in doubt and fear?
Why aren't you sick of it?
Why aren't you sick of it?

Home from work, sinking into escapes
Just to do it all again, every worthless fucking day

We're being controlled in every facet of our lives
Subtly, subliminally, letting someone else decide
Why aren't you sick of it?
Why aren't you sick of it?
Track Name: Moral Dead Spot
Shades of heartless
Acts of the careless
A moral dead spot – culturally reassured
Proven needless
Glut of excess
Shifting responsibility

We’re so far beyond simple survival
Our eyes on evolution
We know enough to stop dealing in blood
But from all sides - desensitized

Piss on everything
Ignore the suffering
Ignore the nightmare that’s closing in
Nearsighted
Why fight it?
You’ll die anyway and the world goes on
Unenlightened
Numb or frightened
The future is drowning in blood
The future is drowning in blood

We’re so far beyond simple survival
Our eyes on evolution
We know enough to stop dealing in blood
But we're all so desensitized

It’s not stopping
It’s not stopping
And we’re running out of time
Track Name: What You Want
All this arrogance, this self entitlement
Averted eyes, uncaring, to get what you want
You'd rather die than be weaned
From the marketing machines
That dictate your life

Bloody culture of no accountability
You pay for murder - pretend your hands are clean
Everybody's doing it -- nobody gives a shit
It's the American Dream

And so you pray
To your god
As though you expect forgiveness
For turning this world into hell
A living hell

Bloody culture of no accountability
You pay for murder - pretend your hands are clean
Everybody's doing it -- nobody gives a shit
It's the American Dream
