01. Idle Hands

Just a word
All it takes to set it off
Uncontrolled
All restraint has been lost

Absorbing more than I can stand
Of these self defeating unreal demands
Giving into frustrations command
The devil makes good use with idle hands

Overwhelming desire to react
I am too far gone forever turning back
Looking for something to lash out at
Turning inward
It is myself that I attack

The anger grows inside everyday
Unquechable
I have become my own prey

From where has this rage been spawned?
Been building deep inside for far too long
Forgotten memories buried and hidden
Creating my own emotional prison

Overwhelming desire to react
I am too far gone forever turning back
Looking for something to lash out at
Turning inward
It is myself that I attack

Can it be that I have lost?
Control of my actions and my thoughts

Overwhelming desire to react
I am too far gone forever turning back
Looking for something to lash out at
Turning inward
It is myself that I attack


02. Thoughts Without Words

Having awareness
But no true sense of self
You find yourself enslaved in chains of earthly wealth
The unending chatter that plagues the mind
Confusion will be all that you find

Chaos reigns in an untamed mind

Still question all I know
Advancing foward
This fallacy I have disowned

You must quench the yearning and false desire
Only balance will elevate you higher
You must train the body and the mind to serve
Envisioning thoughts without words

Chaos reigns in an untamed mind

Still question all I know
Advancing foward
This fallacy I have disowned

Encaged in a world that fear creates
You must release yourself and liberate

Chaos reigns in an untamed mind

Still question all I know
Advancing foward
This fallacy I have disowned

I am seeking the way...


03. Destroyer Of Senses

The sweet taste of self destruction
Waves of purity wash away the memories

I keep on falling off
I keep on falling off

The agents of change will dissolve
Into the fabric of our very existence

I keep on falling off of this straight and narrow line
The calm embrace of a sedated mind

Giver of life
Destroyer of senses
I invoke!

The sweet taste of self destruction
Waves of purity wash away the memories

I keep on falling off of this straight and narrow line
The calm embrace of a sedated mind


04. Casting Shade

Instrumental


05. Stepping Outside The Circle

Here I go again
A vicious cycle without end
Seeking distance for security
A desperate act to remain free

A balance point cannot be found
This whole thing will come crashing down

Down! Down!

My fear will drag you down
Into this world that I create
Your love for me has sealed your fate

Down! Down!

My fear will drag you down
Can I trust in what I feel?
Praying that this time it's real

Feel the strain!
All this times been spent in vain
My shame!
Open wounds that still remain
Decay!
As my faith is stripped away
You'll stray!
The final price I have to pay

Digger in deeper still
The hollowness I yearn to fill
The story always ends the same
The cycle soon begins again

A balance point cannot be found
This whole thing will come crashing down

Down! Down!

My fear will drag you down
Into this world that I create
Your love for me has sealed your fate

Down! Down!

My fear will drag you down
Can I trust in what I feel?
Praying that this time it's real

Feel the strain!
All this times been spent in vain
My shame!
Open wounds that still remain
Decay!
As my faith is stripped away
You'll stray!
The final price I have to pay

Stepping outside the circle!


06. The Art Of Balance

I am sheltered by this apathy
Nothing left to do but torch the day
Retreating deeper into my mind
What is it that I hope to find?

This is the aftermath in me
Tendency to keep it all inside
A fool's disguise

I am strangled by this sumpathy
Empty words with no meaning
Must release myself into the void
All illusions must be destroyed

This is the aftermath in me
Tendency to keep it all inside
A fool's disguise

How dare you compromise
The balance of our lives
Excuses you devise
An internal suicide

I struggle to survive
A perfect goal for which to strive
Ignorance cannot disguise
The balance of our lives
Hiding the meaning of
Hiding the meaning of


07. Mystery Of One Spirit

Inspiration is the light of the mind
Revelation the meaning behind
Clouds of sacred incense allowing us to rise
Cast away all our earthly ties

Without a veil of tears
Journey of the Magi cascading
Fulfillment of our mind
Your cowardice is fuel for this deception
Your vanity
Destruction of your soul

Cannot defend lies without end
I'll smash you trend
Living to be free

Cannot defend lies without end
I will pretend
No more!

Smashing through the doors of perception
Realization of a world beyond the tangible
Ancestral wisdom.
Timeless Inspiration
The mystery of one spirit
I create the light
I create the darkness
Author alike of prosperity and woe
Their god is but a symptom of their power
Another tool they use to dominate and conquer

Without a veil of tears
Journey of the Magi cascading
Fulfillment of our mind
Your cowardice is fuel for this deception
Your vanity
Destruction of your soul

Cannot defend lies without end
I'll smash you trend
Living to be free

Cannot defend lies without end
I will pretend
No more!

Smashing through the doors of perception
Realization of a world beyond the tangible
Ancestral wisdom.
Timeless Inspiration
The mystery of one spirit


08. The Idiot Box

Staring forward with vacant eyes
Imagination cannot survive
Misinformation and compromise
These televised conditioned lies

Create a system of belief
Heartless purveyors of deceit

Seems clear to me you've never known me
Doubt everything you've never shown me

Images flash by in waves
What to buy and what you'll save
All the products that you never craved
you've become another slave

Create a system of belief
Heartless purveyors of deceit

Seems clear to me you've never known me
Doubt everything you've never shown me

All the lies that you told
I will not be bought or sold
I won't fit into your mold
I will not be bought or sold

Rise!
And break away from the system
Rise!
And crush the voices in your head
Rise!

All the lies that you told
I will not be bought or sold
I won't fit into your mold
I will not be bought or sold

I want back what you stole from me!


09. Prelude To Disaster

Instrumental


10. A Fire In Babylon

A fire burns in Babylon
A spark will soon ignite
Burning flame of Jah
Light a fire that will purify
Wipe away the city's lies
Reducing fortunes into ash
Tear apart your useless mask
Nowhere left for you to hide
Damned for your foolish pride

Chant down Babylon
Chant down Babylon

Revelations time is now
Your world will crumble to the ground
Final judgement now has come
This is armageddon

A eulogy for the modern man
Enslaved and devoured by the strength of it's demands
A eulogy for the modern man
Hide your head and cower
Or be struck down where you stand

To advance in truth and rights
To advance in love and light
The path of righteousness is leading
The songs of I and I are pleading
In the grace of Mt. Zion
With the strength of a lion
All barriers shall be broken
All hearts alight and open

Chant down Babylon
Chant down Babylon

Revelations time is now
Your world will crumble to the ground
Final judgement now has come
This is armageddon

A eulogy for the modern man
Enslaved and devoured by the strength of it's demands
A eulogy for the modern man
Hide your head and cower
Or be struck down where you stand

A fire burns in Babylon
Your world will burn
A fire burns in Babylon
Your world is burning down


11. Welcome To The Machine

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
Where have you been?
It's alright we know where you've been.
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time

Provided with toys and 'Scouting for Boys'.
You brought a guitar to punish your ma,
And you didn't like school, and you
know you're nobody's fool,
So welcome to the machine.

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
What did you dream?
It's alright we told you what to dream.
You dreamed of a big star,
He played a mean guitar

He always ate in the Steak Bar.
He loved to drive in his Jaguar.
So welcome to the Machine.
