01. Mother Man

Music by Atheist
Lyrics by Schaefer
You say there's freedom
Within our nature
Well I don't think you understand
Mother Earth has fallen to Mother Man
The Air, the Sea, the Grass, the Trees,
The nemesis is the major,
Fearless leader Mother Man.

Come on take a look
At what's become
Of the existence that leads
Or so we think
That's always a popular phrase
It suits the laws written
By dear Mother Man,
Those heavy hands.

What man creates man will surely destroy
The rule of thumb
In the mouths of little boys
Earth spins delight
We kill everything in sight
To serve the needs
And all purple skies will bleed

And a bird flies weak
Against polluted skies
Before it dies
And nature becomes illegal
According to rules
Made by fools

Sift through the information
Everlasting hesitation
To reveal all knowing vices
All the compomising prices
Untouched by the law binders
Setting standards to remind us
That the ink has dried
Behind the goal
We wish to achieve is gone


02. Unquestionable Presence

The fog rolls in thin here tonight
And all that is warm
Grows ice cold
All that are strong
Fill with fright
My ship has returned here tonight

Get away
Don't you touch my precious ship
Be thankful that you witnessed it at all

[Chorus]

'Cause you can never understand
My life in space
Our visits here
Have gone untraced for years
So easy to create
A shell like you
I must leave now and return

Our presence is unquestionable
We cannot be seen for this long
Now look at what you've done
Created such a stir
If only you had kept to yourself
You might have known for sure
Proof of life in outer space

Our mission is completed
Our voyage is ahead
Our data is collected
To manking it's fed
And deeper and deeper we fall

[Chorus]


03. Your Life's Retribution

Music by Atheist
Lyrics by Schaefer
Catered to undo
Mistakes you have made with you
The lessons catch up with you
As I lay awake in bed at night
The thoughts of life
Pass left and right
They appear on my sensory screen
Adding visuals like I've never seen
Mistakes in route are quite expected
My existing plan is well protected
I light the bulb that soothes my brain
For not to learn is not to gain
Tarnished, are the thoughts
That have been told
Wise man, give me nothing real to hold
The writings of the past
Are paper thin
If I seek the truth
I'll look within
Boundaries never hold
They just cater to feelings of self control
In time you'll break through
An abundance of knowledge
Is there for you
The rise and the fall,
Protruding action
The thrill of it all
My fortress when I pass
My retribution, my afterclass
Sunlight, Moonlight,
Can you feel the warmth
Of past lives
Naked stars that come out at night
To make an effervescent dent in my time
Realise, conceptualize,
Prepare yourself for life's Retribution


04. Enthralled In Essence

Music by Atheist
Lyrics by Schaefer
I've scaled over the walls of morality
Not quite sure what I'd find
There on the other side
Waiting in a common stance
Relieve me of my duty
As keeper of this body
Just leave me with my mind
And I assure you
I will be just fine

Tears stream from cheek
Of a man whose body his mind does not seek
A very gruelling rendition
Of a human soul's indecision
The qualities of a finer being
Locked well within this shell
Crying out to be released
To a body that serves as well

Malformed at birth
You see what it's worth
In a mirror I ask why
Such a shame, wanting to die

In a past lifetime
I feel I've had mine
Shared with no one
Excuse me I must go now !
Unhappy as he exits
Unhappy as he came
Enthralled in the Essence
The Essence of life to be


05. An Incarnation's Dream

Music by Atheist
Lyrics by Schaefer
It all seems so strange
The mutes the bums
The dogs with mange, the poor,
Doesn't anybody help themselves anymore
I guess not
Barefoot pregnant women
Little kids with snot on their face
A land of plenty, a dynasty of disgrace !
I'll manifest for you
Careening on the outer limits of reality
My mission to create a better galaxy
I must not fail them now,
I look inside to see that it's clear
Living life is just not enough
You must persevere
Please grab hold
Not to things that are bought
But to things that cannot be sold,
Then you'll see
You're released by trial and error
The world's prophecy is to learn
A candle lit from the bottom
Will soon start to burn
Don't dignify, a false spy in the sky
Re-route your path
With the blink of an eye

Walking around with a mind of your own
With a glance to the past
You can see we have grown
How much we have grown

It's been my dream
To enter the stream
To let carnates know
What life really means
If one understands
That's all I can ask
Life to you
is such a wretched task !


06. The Formative Years

Music by Atheist
Lyrics by Schaefer
In the short time
That I have spent here
In this ghastly plane
I've come to find
There are so many things
That should be changed
Like the relationship
Between the elder and the youth
It lights the fuse that leads
To all our problems
And that's the truth

Ambition, floods our hearts
In a world in which
We must succeed
If it's only in our eyes
Connoisseur of Opportunity
Release your stubborn nature
Don't electrify the seed
Rectify the need

We know you speak with them
Your close but very far
Communication is essential
Like the light to stars
No need to tell them no
No need to slap their hands
These are the formative years
You would not understand

[Repeat]


07. Brains

Music by Atheist
Lyrics by Schaefer
Talking to yourself
You say things
No one ever hears
Knowing yourself better
Than anyone ever could
Bet you never thought you would
Honesty prevails in thought
You just can't lie to yourself
A patch of lucrid decisions
A thought of fame and wealth

[Chorus]

A caravan or process if you will
A stream of conscious waves
A prostitute of ideas
A maze of tracing knowledge
First and foremost feed your head !

Retrieve all that flows with memory
Obtain all you know with sensories
Approaching every act with contemplation
Attacking every-vision with indecision
Conditioning is a routine of minds
Recruiting all the intellect it finds
Insecurity is merely your fear
Of maybe the outside hearing what you hear
Can't let 'em see,
Don't let 'em hear
Projecting like an airplane in flight

I dream of things
That just aren't quite right
A projecter shines on the back of my eyes
So my position of perception can rise

[Repeat chorus]

Insecurity is merely your fear
Of maybe the outside
Hearing what you hear
Don't let 'em see,
Can't let 'em hear


08. And The Psychic Saw

Music by Atheist
Lyrics by Schaefer
And so the Psychic Saw
Meaningful ends and the thrill of it all
To be an equal of infinity's divine
Searching the cosmos for erected confines
Bursting within the motherland
The excess soon will exceed demand
That I see

Man's existence is to form resistance
The timeless reluctance
The all forgotten purpose
Your spectacle of actions
Is the tell tale of my visions
Oh now I, see it clear
You wish to be relieved
Of all fear
Don't worry yourself
Prepare your senses
Until, the knowledge, commences
And so the Psychic Saw!
Visions!
The land and sea, Beauty!

And so the Psychic Saw meaningful ends
Become the meaning of it all
To set the stage
For the fears that will be
To pull the curtain
For the whole world to see
