01. Denaturalizing Leaders

Music by Cynic
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
What happened to honesty
What the hell's happened to truth?
An adverse turn in leadership's ways
A negative procession delaying our truce

What's happening to the people
Or the body of politics?
All for the crown, just for an addiction
Money, power, they need a fix

Life's drastically changing with time
There were times when our worlds looked brighter
When we had thrived on the quotes
"No false propositions, no need for liars"

(lead: Paul)

Polished specimens to rule us all
An image to portray that fools majority
Ancient atmosphere, do we recall
In which was worth trustworthy custody

Why ask what they are for?
Attempts to tell us about their gimmick is so damn absurd
Let's insurrect their rulership - eliminate their goals
Put their claims of confidence into segregated rows

Facing their false selves
Denaturalizing leaders!!!


02. Extremes

Music by Cynic
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
Society's selfish meaning to confine
Disabled by the need to cure an insecurity
Masses strive to keep themselves in line
While the radical seek attention all the time

Say they're sick - just hypochondriacs
Cry some more, I know it's all an act

Lies...taken to extremes
Despised...because of what they need

A selfish thought to please themselves
They strive to succeed in what they're looking for
Defying, lying, rebelling for attention
A disability taken from one extreme to another

(chorus)

Abusing rights, defying given laws
Excessive whining, they desire sympathy
Rebel, they prove their lives are just a flaw
Immoderate acts plagued by the disease

I proved them wrong but they're the ones to blame
Defeated fair and square at their own game


03. A Life Astray

Music by Cynic
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
A cult or crew that know not of what to do
Indecisive life, but who's to say?
A life that's left them nowhere but to decay
In a never ending search for affairs to waste a day
A continental lifestyle thought to be
Has turned it's back on society
A life astray...

Extensions of their thoughts to find their goals
Procrastinating life they can obey
No sense of direction but they're just people
A life that's left them nowhere but to decay

Deteriorated life, swallowed whole
While choking on their own self esteem

(lead: Paul)

(lead: Jason)

In their quest for a dream
Searching for something - something to do
Their lives wasting away and passed them by
Before they know it, their life's gone
They've met their fate, a wasted life to die

(lead: Paul)

Extensions of their thoughts to find their goals
Procrastinating life they can obey
No sense of direction but they're just people
A life that's left them nowhere but to decay
In a never ending search for affairs to waste a day
A continental lifestyle thought to be
Has turned it's back on society
A life astray...


04. Agitating Affliction

Music by Cynic
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
A prevalent personality
Susceptible to understand
Pressured with an easy procedure
Returned with a demand

You impatient wayward one
Can't deal with reality's harsh truth
You've been agitated by a supposed young fool
You just can't lose

Because you've been agitated
You turn to affliction in distress
A most important virtue you don't have
Living life only to regress

With all your arrogance
You ask for a favor and I refuse
You've been defamated by a young fool
With haughty views toward you

Unnecessary attitude
Agitating moods
Pressured with decisions
Applying affliction so profuse
Vain glory within yourself
A life that's meant to be an empty folio
Agitating affliction
Is the problem that you have
And you don't even know

(lead: Paul)

You're minus one virtue
The virtue is patience can't you see?
Useless retaliation is your fault
Administering affliction is how you feed

(lead: Jason)

A prevalent personality
Susceptible to understand
Pressured with an easy procedure
Returned with a demand

You impatient wayward one
Can't deal with reality's harsh truth
You've been agitated by a supposed young fool
You just can't lose...
You just can't lose!
