Track Name: Circle of the Absurd
In the epicentre now
lambs to the slaughter
but strike off the hangman
we’re all cannibals now

Welcome ceaseless insanity
in the circle of absurd

It’s competition now
forget all the hunger
interminable greed
we’re in purgatory now

This is the last you’ll ever see
in the circle of absurd

An eternal strain
like Sisyphus’ boulder
an eternity jailed
in cruel repetition

Throw all your pointless suicide
in the circle of absurd
only absurdity prevails
In the centre of this world
Track Name: Death Trance
Cerebral euthanasia
an interactive dream
colourful fantasy
on flickering plastic sheets
feel the static fade in and out
hoping the snow will settle soon
lust over the grim reaper
staring back at you

Tedium burns
as needles start to pierce your limbs

Chewing on stale bread
your mouth numb to the taste
deiform plasma glow
iconographic // ecclesiastic

Lethargy burns
As your hair splinters and crawls with lice

At the end of the scene, the credits roll down the screen
there’s nothing left // take your last breath
drip fed // waiting for more // how can it last?
in your death trance

The endless gaze of a patsy
the burning rays of control
captivate attention
and satiate solitude
all these nothing tubes of gas
hoping the dust will crackle soon
satellite radiation
toxic aspiration

Tedium burns
as rigor mortis starts to set

At the end of the scene, the credits roll down the screen
there’s nothing left // take your last breath
drip fed // waiting for more // how can it last?
in your death trance

Lethargy burns
a carcass frenzy for feeding mice
ready to die // ready to fade // ready to choke
Track Name: Utopia
These languid figures hang corrupt and pale
lifeless ebbs of nothing real
through black and white films you see purity
it leaves a scar but you can never feel

This city screams perfection

Your affection
an affliction
all it means is
your extinction

Electric lights burn shadows into place
neon strips fly past your impassive face
cognition blunted, no contours at all
slowly blinded // drained // unnatural

This city means utopia

Your affection
an affliction
all it means is
your extinction

These are the faded dreams of perfection
clinical towers of gleaming sedation
sanguine and vibrant culture so antique
emotions outlawed // only techno-chic
Track Name: Destroy the Silence
Can you hear your lone romantic voice
echoing in nothingness?
It tortures you with every inch
as each word passes through your lips

They take with them a part of you
formed deep under your flesh
but you still pass over greying clouds
that speak only in fake avowal

Destroy the silence
men in white coats
kill the preacher girl

Can you scream a passionate decree
of war in manufactured peace?
Will hatred creeping over you
crush you to benign retreat?

The stigma just grows stronger for
a language that evades contempt
your apparition suffocated
rendered delusion to lament

If you want it // you’re singing to them // coughing up dust
say your prayers // blinded // coughing up dust
