Track Name: Losing Control
LOSING CONTROL

Something’s taking over
I can feel it creeping in my skin.
Like a virus taking over
When the blood begins to flow
Thats a certainty you know
All the victims
Get evicted
And the truth becomes another show
You gotta binge on.
You deny it
But you cant prove it
Now your instincts sticking in your throat
You’re gonna choke on it

Are you losing control?
Are you losing control?
Are you losing control?
Are you losing control?

Are the whispers getting louder
Is it like an echo from the past?
Why deny it if you cant prove it?
Now your instincts sticking in your throat
You’re gonna choke on it

Are you losing control?
Are you losing control?
Are you losing control?
Are you losing control?
More bills more rent
And your money’s all spent
More bills more rent
And your money’s all spent
More bills more rent
And your money’s all spent


Are you losing control?
Are you losing control?
Are you losing control?
Are you losing control?
Track Name: Ego And I Go
EGO AND I GO

Lets go to war
In your mind

Baby I’m lost
Locked in a past
Where I don’t belong
I try to change
But I’m scared that I don’t fit in
My ego’s a hungry beast
A hungry beast to feed
I play the field
I go around and around
In my head
I hop around from bed to bed
My ego’s a hungry beast
Yeah
So I act the fool
I play around and around
In your head
I lay my cards all down
Whats said
From now until you leave
Its just a game
You best believe
Thats right

Ego and I Go
Anywhere’s alright
Ego And I go
Take me home tonight

Cos I make the rules
And I break them too
I change my pitch
But what I stole from you
Well I lost that from myself
Its just a memory I cant feel now
Baby I’m lost
Locked in a past
Where I don’t belong
I try to change
But I’m scared that I don’t fit in
My ego’s a hungry beast
A hungry beast to feed
And it says

Ego and I Go
Anywhere’s alright
Ego And I go
Take me home tonight
Baby I’m lost
Baby I’m lost
Ego and I Go
Anywhere’s alright
Ego And I go
Take me home tonight
Track Name: Eyes Wide Shut
EYES WIDE SHUT

Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius
Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius

Loathe Island meets Lord Of The Flies
They’ve colonised your brain
Its Battle Royale
For the 21st Century.
The choices they give
Is that what they say it is?
Its the evil of two lessers.
More Punishment Park
Now you’re under attack
And the shithouse is up in flames

Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius
Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius

I’m dying to meet you
To kill you and eat you
I hope you were a vegan
Was your diet organic or biodynamic
How do you rate your toxicity?

Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius
Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius
Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius
Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius

Its all part of the game
You lose when you win
Its gonna drive you insane
If you let it

Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius
Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius
Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius
Eyes wide shut
Cult of Dionysius
Track Name: System Error
SYSTEM ERROR

It aint right
Some people wanna douse your fire
It aint right
They wanna take away a piece of you
It aint right
To tolerate
Those insecurities
You deny
But you try
To project that shit on me
It aint right
System error
Programmed in your brain
It aint right
You better shut down
Restart again
It aint right
System error
Programmed in your brain
It aint right
You better shut down
Restart again
It aint right
It aint right
It aint right
I got some problems of my own
It aint right
It aint right
Yeah thats some psychic vampirism shit
And I aint gonna fall for it
Yeah thats some psychic vampirism shit
And I aint gonna fall for that.
Track Name: Burning Flag
BURNING FLAG

So here we are
Standing on the verge of getting it on
Are we still together?
I dont know
But I cant let go
No, I cant let go.
Is it me
Am I going insane?
Capillaries defused
In my brain
It aint right
I don’t wanna fight
We’re so horny for war
So horny for war
And thats a fact.

You better burn your flags
Its a draft

So here we are
Standing like shadows in the dark
With our eyes closed
No-one else can see
The vision we had
Alter destiny
Is it me
Am I going insane?
That chip that they put
In my brain.
It aint right
I dont wanna fight
We’re so horny for war
So horny for war
And thats a fact

You better burn your flags
Its a draft
Track Name: Immigrant Rising
IMMIGRANT RISING

I was born under Nuclear Sun
A little immigrant rising
From the inside of the womb
To the outside and the tomb
And this thing we call life
Yeah
Better minds cant be heard
Cos the idiots led
And The Sun
Blazed its sick rays
Think what you like
Do what your like
But its not going to be alright

You don’t know where you’re coming from
Or where you’re going to
You expect me to respect you
Well I aint going to
What you don’t know
Doesn’t hurt you
Til it bleeds you dry
Time after time
Thats the lines you buy
Yeah
Thats the lines you buy
Motherfuckers

I was born third rock from the sun
Little immigrant rising
From the swamps of Saturn’s rings
Plant X and The Nephilim
And this thing we call
The Afterlife
Lesser minds can be heard
Cos the idiots bred
And The Sun
Blazed its sick rays.
Do what you like
Think what you like
But its not going to be alright

You don’t know where you’re coming from
Or where you’re going to
You expect me to respect you
Well I aint going to
What you don’t know
Doesn’t hurt you
Til it bleeds you dry
Time after time
Thats the lines you buy
Yeah
Thats the lines you buy
Motherfuckers

Little immigrant rising
Little immigrant rising
Little immigrant rising
Take me to the borderline
Take me to the borderline
Take me to the borderline

You don’t know where you’re coming from
Or where you’re going to
You expect me to respect you
Well I aint going to
What you don’t know
Doesn’t hurt you
Til it bleeds you dry
Time after time
Thats the lines you buy
Yeah
Thats the lines you buy
Motherfuckers
Track Name: So Far Away
SO FARAWAY

Yeah I know you’re sick
I know you’re heart’s broken
I just gotta say
I saw the writing on the wall
Im only trying to help
Cos I care
So
I wrote this song about you
You’re far away inside you
I wrote this song
Despite you
Despise the lies
That bind you
I dont wanna even try
I dont wanna criticise
The games you play
You have to say
I’d rather blow my brains away
Cos im so complicated
Finally vindicated
Circumspect
Beyond control
The truth is hard
For us to hold
I dont wanna even try
I dont wanna criticise
The games you play
You have to say
I’d rather blow my brains away

You know you’re wrong
About me
Im far away inside me
Im not concerned
With selfish pride
The boundaries you inside
I dont wanna even try
I dont wanna criticise
The games you play
You have to say
I’d rather blow my brains away
Track Name: In The Shadow Of The Drone
IN THE SHADOW OF THE DRONE

My eyes cried out
Derange my senses
There’s no easy way to tell you what I need to say
Inside I’m burdened

Sometimes I cry
No reason why
My head is twisted
Cease and desist it

In the shadow of the drone
There’s nowhere to call your home
You’re running through those empty streets
With that sickness in your bones
Your tired of living recklessly
But your conscience isn’t clear
The truth is right before you
But you cant see it for…
Sometimes I cry
No reason why
My head is twisted
Cease and desist it

My eyes cried out
Derange my senses
There’s no easy way to tell you what I need to say
Inside I’m burdened

Sometimes I cry
No reason why
My head is twisted
Cease and desist it
