Track Name: The Masquerade
THE MASQUERADE

Spinning around in a sea of serpents
Waiting to see
They're almost round our feet

Walking around in a daze of illusion
Fading away
This game of life we play

Mocking the crowd behind veils of delusion
Spread the seed
Of doubt on which to feed

Drowning in shallow and empty intrusions
Sucking the life
From every mortal being

Spraying the ground with a toxic infusion
Mutating our genes
We're falling apart at the seams

Laughing out loud it's this chemical fusion
Praying for they
Might end this tragic play.

Masquerade , this big charade
This crazy game that we all play
Hide and seek

Hey money makers, movers and shakers
Don't show me your cash , show me your trash
Show me the shit you leave behind
With your drive to dominate the masses

Masquerade , this big charade
This crazy game that we all play
Hide and seek

Checking out my emails gathering my females
Checking out face fuck ,networking ,fuck working
What purpose in-bred hierarchical slobs bigots elite
Let me kiss your feet

I'm raising my glass in a toast
To our last drink of fossil fuels
I vow to get off of this sauce
Give the darkness back its soul
Track Name: High Voltage Star
Where the sea meets the sky
That's where I want to go
Bring me to the horizon
And let me flow

That's where I reside
That's where we'll shine

Transcend the limits of time
Melting into the ocean
The universe is inside us
Through every soul it glows

In dreams it's easy to find
This love some piece of mind

High voltage star kill the night
To shine the light on those who
Hide in their shadows deep

Eternal mission sublime
A love that lights the whole sky
In the gaze of spirits' wings climbing
Perched beyond every throne

I am for the sun
Dance the sky everyone

High voltage star kill the night
To shine the light on those who
Hide in their shadows deep
Track Name: Zombie Masters
Worshipped like half living gods in the media circus
No longer a factor in the human race
Why?
Hot Item front runner
Spending most nights raving and a plotting into
Phalanx of microphones ,
Connected to the international cable network
Mind terrorism a chaotic legacy
Zombie Masters

Pan Am deep into free basing brain damage magnitude
Circumstantial nest of gibberish
Perverse humor suburban TV
Genuinely
May the meat sickness strike everywhere
Pig's cunt in a bun
Low life shrink diamond vision countdown
To the Zombie Masters
Cleansing our blood of the media circus

And you're wondering why
When you're caught in the lie
You just gotta try escape the
Zombies

Worshipped like half living gods
Zombie

Impunity genuine parrot hard core yuppie
Constituent gambling instinct
Pressed on like a lemming through unholy nightmare
Freeze out cremation
Of the penthouse mascots injured and materialized
Zombie Masters
Cleansing our blood of the media circus

And you're wondering why
When you're caught in the lie
You just gotta try escape the
Zombies

Worshipped like half living gods
Zombie
I like to spend my time reading in-between the lines
Zombie
Track Name: I And I Alone
I and I am told
Burning up your soul
There's a hole
Where your money and your ego flow
When your tummy funny
Don't know how to enjoy
And your head explodes

I and I is sold
This story's getting old
It's a shame
History repeat itself again
When the myths they blossom out
And shout a loud insane and proud

I and I alone
Move your body pick up the phone
I and I alone lose your mind
Hang up the phone
I and I alone
Move your body pick up the phone
I and I alone with you

I and I am told
Burning up your soul
There's a hole
Where your money and your ego flow
When your tummy funny
Don't know how to enjoy
And your head explodes

Try and try to hold
Some sanity unfold
It's an old and moldy throne
That the kings in line never let go
Debunk debunking theorists
Not thinking quite the clearest
Let go of what you think you know

I and I alone
Move your body pick up the phone
I and I alone lose your mind
Hang up the phone
I and I alone
Move your body pick up the phone
I and I alone with you

And the tides of time are washing away

I and I alone with you
Track Name: Baby Spiders
If only I'd walked away

I can't feel you
I can't see you
i'm just trapped inside this game
No tomorrows, let the whole world
No turning back now fade away

If only I'd walked away

The idea born in someones mind
Is nurtured by a thousand blind
Another's code, anothers brain
So caught up in the identity game
Books are sold and the quotes are bought
You learn them well and then you're caught
The stage was set the costumes worn
Another empire of destruction born
Track Name: The City
Words by Haruki Murakami

Eyes mark the shape of the city
Countless arteries stretch to the ends of it's elusive body
Circulating a continuous supply of fresh blood cells
Sending out new consumables and collecting the old
Sending out new data and collecting the old
Sending out new contradictions
And collecting the old
Track Name: Hey !
Hey ! It's what you wanted , walk away
Everybody knows that you'll run today
Hey! Say, what you're gonna say
How you stay alive is another play
Hey! I got you cornered turn away
Everybody lies that's the game to play
Hey! Take,what you wanna take
How to stay in line with the things you fake
Hey! GMO, go away
Amazed at the ways to infect the race
Hey! Stay cybergain
Fuel injected strife angel face

Foolish hearts and minds
Hypnotized and blind
Psychic visions lie
Is the future bright

Me like la vida loca
Me like la beans on toasta
Me like to swim you watch your island is just one acre
You love the time , watch it just pass the line
I love it right on top love as a paradigm

Me no cause that vida loca
Feast on that merchandise
I want that whistleblower
Fresh in from Palestine
I got my hero right from the almighty
I love my beans and the chemical reaction

My brain is lit like tantric fire gigantic
Bullets that kill prophets vision of future
I and I obey the laws of nature
Screw dem politicians dem bankers war mongers

We've never been so confused as we are today
We've never been so abused as with these games they play

Hey ! It's what you wanted , walk away
Everybody knows that you'll run today
Hey! Say, what you're gonna say
How you stay alive is another play
Hey! I got you cornered turn away
Everybody lies that's the game to play
Hey! Take,what you wanna take
How to stay in line with the things you fake

Me like la vida loca
Me like la beans on toasta
Me like to swim you watch your island is just one acre
You love the time , watch it just pass the line
I love it right on top love as a paradigm

Me no cause that vida loca
Feast on that merchandise
I want that whistleblower
Fresh in from Palestine
I get my heros right from the almighty
I love my beans and the cronics are watching
Track Name: System Crashdown
Just plain speaking
Just play speak jah
Just plain freaking
Just plain freak jah
Just plain tweaking
Just plain tweak jah
( Or anything you imagine it says !)

System crash down
Don't let them fool yah all around
All the love can heal yer
How many things are said
How many people dead
How many troubles can rain down
How many blind are led
How much belly need fed
How much corruption can rain down
Sordid sequences in brilliant life
Supports and props and punctuations
To our flowing realities and realisations
That set out the rules of this ludicrous game
A glorified media marketing ploy
For the generation taught that rain is poison
Sex is death but what is left
'Cept TV and masturbation
Track Name: Never Stop Asking Why
It's never too late to try
Never stop asking why
It's never too late to fly
Hey ho
Never let chance pass by
It's never too late to try
Hey ho hey hey hey
Never stop asking why
Every time I look inside the I can see the world's in me and
Everything I want to be the change that all I want to see is mine
Every time I can't believe the crazy shit that they believe
The irony, the total cheese, the tangled web that we all weave to survive
I drink poison
Wars over cola
Jokers undercover
Global warming tax vex text mex
Natural progression
Checking out my emails
Gathering my females
I drink treason
Flaws in the system
Smokers undercover
Fire freakbeats dawning bling bling
Nothing's obvious
Checking out my emails
Gathering my females
Destined to follow
The prophets of profit
Slaves to the paper
Slaves to the knowledge of the wedge pledge
Clinical Obsession
Checking out my emails
Gathering my females
I drink poison
Wars over cola
Jokers undercover
Global warming tax
Vex Text Mex
Natural progression
Checking out my emails
Gathering my females
