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?

Ego And I Go 04:29
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

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?

Burning Flag 03:35
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

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

So Far Away 03:49
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

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
