Rewired 05:24
Verse Pouring through defects in your system Examining dark spaces of your mind Removing the tired, exploited circuit Replacing with the apathetic kind Pre-Chorus Ignoring the classic symptom Eliminate inner conviction Coercing you into silence Remove capacity for violence Verse Hallowed space that was once your soul Defiance, a word you used to know Victims of this toxic master plan A fabricated, shallow helping hand Chorus Covert, global mental overhaul Face in the mirror, unrecognizable Stripping the masses of integrity Surrender power to authority
Verse Sullen emptiness, the affliction A lethal dose of misfortune Nothingness, burning you up Opening the door, and I will slam it shut! The Legions of naught Calling you out Re-arranging your thoughts Leaving no compromise for resistance I'll intensify your allegiance The remedy for bitter disgrace Building the walls to shield my dogmatic rage…and sealing your fate Chorus Uninvited, sporting a clever disguise Filling your head with 11 narcotic rhymes Keeping my victims intoxicated...infatuated I am the host, here to speak with your ghost Bridge Hearts beating to the requiem Mind racing into delirium Piecing together the cryptic verses Pulling the trigger at my command
Leech 05:59
Verse Veering, beyond the limits of sanity Hanging on to reality Sickness is undetectable Pondering, dubious selfish intention Morals escape the equation Power is wonderful Pre-chorus Alone, A solitary kind A fragile, irrational mind Falling through the porous structure Revealing the hidden monster Seclusion Delusion Retribution Verse Scripting, a chilling proclamation Insignificance will be broken The last words to be spoken Burning, the ravenous eyes will meet you Fire in hand, he will greet you Dominant and lethal Chorus A party of one, your have become Concealing a misguided perception Erasing the pages of indignity Casting us into your tragedy
Verse 1 Pounding rhythm of disintegration Engines turn, bodies burn, read the scandal Don the mask of honesty, cast us into slavery Crush the envious, bestow emptiness, begin the decadence Heavy handed, malicious bandit Bleed the system, choke the wisdom, ignite the fear The unruly guest, wields his stark deception Consume the powerless, elude consciousness. crush the inquest Pre-Chorus Standing above the wreckage, looking down…it’s presence menacing Execute the crimes from within…beseech your savior Verse Cross your chest, shut your eyes Hungry beasts, begin the feast, bleed us dry Distorted justice, lends you no salvation Insurrection brewing, power turning, cities burning Pre-Chorus Standing among the wreckage, looking down…devoid of empathy The Masses’ patience wearing thin…meet your savior Chorus Greed machine, bearing down Infected, neglected, the hallowed ground Weakening…burning out Determined to tear the fucker apart Pre-Chorus Lying below the wreckage, underground…loosing everything Waiting for the trial to begin…I am your savior!
Crawl 07:36
Verse Stone by precious stone The faithful work their hands to the bone Revealing the images of Gods Icons not even nature can dissolve Pre-chorus A symbol of division Heedless retribution Our history now in pieces Did you understand the verses? Verse Depictions of the dawn Sketches of a world unknown The kings and queens they immortalized …Cut down in the blink of an eye Pre-chorus Blown into oblivion In the name of religion Our history now in pieces Did you understand the verses? Chorus And tonight they crawl, Into the Temple halls Destroy the work of ages, flush it down the hole And tonight we call, to the guilty swarm Give up your isolation, and this elitist war
