Xenophobe 03:10
Never cut by thought or thesis Evoked by hollow, rabid speeches That clot up and fall to pieces Then turn to birds and spread diseases It turns to chemical meditation It turns to paranoia and frustration It turns to gray rotting teeth It turns to entitled, hateful beliefs Implant a thought, sow the seed Groom xenophobic racist steeds Loud and dumb without folly Shouting, "Stop evolving Uber Alles" Logic and compassion regress to selfish superstitions Implant a thought, sow the seed Groom xenophobic racist steeds It must be hell to live in fear

Fear Itself 03:33
It’s here again A black mist that creeps into the air Hangs like a veil and turns off the stars To the thoughts in the halls of my mind Softly it speaks… ARISE ARISE ARISE I let go and fell into the sky Unable to blink or close my eyes The world is torn apart and reality rearranged In a soft voice it speaks… DESCEND DESCEND DESCEND I fell from the heavens Into the sea The hands of the water wrapped chains around me Placing fear in my heart and death in my eyes In a soft voice it speaks… OBEY OBEY OBEY I wander the earth apart from the rest Their eyes and laughter dance on my back I am filled with their pain Till just numbness remains The mist hovers Dark and quiet In a soft voice it speaks… DECAY DECAY DECAY
