Track Name: Utopia Down
standing in the sunshine staring at the sky
we're lifeforms crawling out the earth to die
standing on the forest floor looking at the trees
we're alive and fine but we die so easy

standing in the sunshine staring at the ground
we're lifeforms built to break this utopia down

mother nature is a bitch with an itch
we're scratching, catching gas it's, lasting but actually
now we're twitching in her lap
too attached we attack
with the crafts we master
faster faster we gotta move quick
if the sun goes down for good, we'll get sick
and we won't be getting any better so we really need to get her
guts no buts, just blood and cuts

I was walking through the land
screaming out to grab your hand
then we built a shed to feed in
somewhere out the back of eden
man was dead before he breathed
woman died from being conceived
then they lived their life together
bathing springtime dreams forever


all the air I breathe
is a sigh of relief
as tears reappear on my cheeks as I weep
deep seated in my dreams
believing our regimes can
free the weak fuck that
weed the meek
move on to bigger things
fly south for the falls, summers, winters, and springs
cause that's what we wanna see; colonization
a positively cunning plot to broaden the nation

and bathe they did under the light of the milky way
their stomachs went crazy
they drove back home, and told stories of mornings with no sun and no life light

and if they were to see each other again this lifetime
would not be existent
cause we are all songs they played into picture perfect astral projections as their
axioms

wandering, pondering, squandering lifetime
manically, ravishing, anything, stopping to breathe

what can you do when all pride runs away
i'd give anything
i'd give anything
not to see it that way

and why is the sky suddenly so grey
i'd give anything
i'd do anything
just to make these days go away
Track Name: Computer Whatevers
end of the line
line is towed
single file through my abode
slow
show me what i'm like on the road
throw me what i'm owed

give me the good times
you'll like it
I think we're getting somewhere
I belong
tell me something
i can wrong
then i'm going

round and round
i'm sitting down
i'm walking all around
my skin is bleeding all sorts of colours
looking up
towards the cosmic dust
i see my face reflected
screaming you don't have to be this way

after all
this time against the wall
there is a curtain call
and we'll all become awake from the dream
cause we all are asleep
and yeah i am a dreamer
and maybe i'm the only fucking one

sent from the sages
wrecked by the ages
stages we are gauging
while on different pages
blazing mages
crazy lazy trapped in the cages

i've seen the blandness
it's sadness
i think you've broken up
wrote this stuff
throat is rough
enough
i find myself go

round and round
i'm sitting down
i'm walking all around
my skin is bleeding all sorts of colours
looking up
towards the cosmic dust
and see my face reflected
screaming you don't have to be this way

after all
this time against the wall
there is a curtain call
and we'll all become awake from the dream
cause we all are all asleep
and yeah i'm a dreamer
and maybe i'm the only fucking one

i'm just a guy
staring at space
mimicking people so i can save grace
fading away without any trace
afraid to even leave myself in this race

i'm discontented
flawed and incompetent
but that's not the reason i don't belong
it's all just fake
it's all a lie
it's all a lie
as time goes by

i press myself against your skin
i can't begin to think of the state i'm in
it's just a sin
close your eyes and tell me what you mean
lift yourself above the canopy
so you can see
we're just computer whatevers

round and round
i'm sitting down
i'm walking all around
my skin is bleeding all sorts of colours
looking up
towards the cosmic dust
and see my face reflected
screaming you don't have to be this way

after all
this time against the wall
there is a curtain call
and we'll all become awake from the dream
yes we all are all asleep
and yeah i'm a dreamer
and maybe i'm the only fucking one

i'm just a guy
staring at space
mimicking people so i can save grace
fading away without any trace
afraid to even leave myself in this race

i'm discontented
flawed and incompetent
but that's not the reason i don't belong
it's all just fake
it's all a lie
it's all a lie
as time goes by
Track Name: First Flight, Last Ascent
It's my first flight happening at the worst time
it's an elaborate scheme, everyone is in a dream
it's my first flight happening on the darkest night
I spread my mangled wings, tangled up and heaven sings
Track Name: There Is No Escape (You Will All Die)
at one fell swoop
i lost the troops and now i'm heading home
no wonder that i'm underground
it's cost me all i own
this fantasy's too heavy for me
I can't take control
when I do what I do
it's all for you
so let me free your soul

but i gotta take it slow
can't you see
there's nowhere on this spinning rock that's
where i want to be

i just wanna get out of this place
and live alone in outer space
where the free reside
i think it's justified

but i know that's not my nature
and it's nothing very major
it's just chronic misbehaviour
in this age of exploitation

i was lost at sea but now i'm free
ever since i touched the shore
the shackles that have bounded me
are gone forevermore

and it's sad to see the world believe
they don't get a second chance
i think those people lack the means
to readily advance

but i gotta take it slow
can't you see
there's nowhere on this spinning rock that's
where i want to be

i just wanna get out of this place
and live alone in outer space
where the free reside
i think it's justified

but i know that's not my nature
and it's nothing very major
it's just chronic misbehaviour
in this age of exploitation

i guess it's fine
Track Name: Waterspouts
there was lightning in the sky so we decided to stay for the
nights we were away and drifting off into the sunrise
we landed on the icy isles
banged my head against the wall
over and over until my blood could no longer be flowing
going towards holes in the ceiling
glowing till we got the feeling
circles formed around revealing
stars falling from the sky
singing us a lullaby
eyes wide pointing out
sprites in the waterspout

out through the door there came in masses of stormy souls
they wrote down everything we couldn't be aware of
they took their time before they left
no they didn't rest at all
swimming and seeking believing demons were stealing and tweaking
speech till we were all just squealing
freaking out cause we were peeling
leeches that would leak revealing
stars falling from the sky
singing us a lullaby
eyes wide pointing out
sprites in the waterspout

would you believe me if i told you
that your life was miles away
would you cast me off your finger
and leave me stranded in the bay

would you believe me if i told you
that your life was miles away
would you cast me off your finger
and leave me stranded in the bay
would you try be simple when i tell you that
you're losing control
you're out of your mind just
take a look around i'd say you own it all
now just sit back and try recall
what happened after the fall
ok go

i was standing on the shore of the abandoned island the,
patterns we created seemed to mutate the vibe but by then
everyone was wondering why
they left me all alone to die
strangled and mangled and broken
stolen from scopolamine hoping
simple things like symbiosis
happen to be in my closest
range of danger right before
the
stars fall from the sky
singing me a lullaby
tides widen in the bay
then i watch them fade away
Track Name: I Lay Amongst the Silent Rangers
breathing out my mouth
i'm allowed cause i have no eyes
your fortune telling flashing lights
are demons in disguise
and when your spirit rises up
into the starry void
i'll say hey
don't you do this alone
(don't do it alone)

well i see
things differently
you see
something dead and so ugly
guess it's all for show
(still i cry out)
so loud
you can't hear a thing
no, nothing but screaming
oh still the days go by so fast
(so fast, too fast)
and if you said that i was incomplete
i'd say take a seat
with me
and we could help each other see
what life has become
as we lay amongst the silent rangers

dreams too far and few between
a daze of severed heads
spreading round the pestilence
and all the murk it sheds
you'd say that all the joy will drain
and you'll be on your own
but i'd say hey
leave your hell beings alone
(just leave them alone)

well i see
things differently
you see
something dead and so ugly
guess it's all for show
still i cry
out so loud
you can't hear a thing
no, nothing but screaming
oh still the days go by so fast
so fast, too fast
and if you said that i was incomplete
i'd say take a seat
with me
and we could help each other see
what life has become
as we lay amongst the silent rangers
Track Name: Stay Strong, Silent Rangers
I see the bounty hunters
looking for me
so i sit in an empty room
with my sword in hand
i'm starting to feel possesed

and this summer has become the coldest winter
i've ever experienced

frozen by ancient magic
long lost secrets
held by the ice itself
trying to catch my tears
from being second best

and this time, i can make my heart stop beating
but somehow i'm still alive
there's nothing else that cuts that deep

while
i'm contemplating
you in the matrix
looking at faces
blatantly traceless
breaking how people call you
one of their own

stay strong silent rangers
no one can change you
they are the strangers
they will never know who you are
in the worst of times
we gather our memories

teach me some esoteric
basic ethics
something that i can grasp
tell me the only things preventing the world from collapse
it's something i know
you've kept a secret
but somehow it's getting out
there's nowhere else
where i can stand
still

i'm contemplating
you in the matrix
looking at faces
blatantly traceless
breaking how people call you
one of their own

stay strong silent rangers
no one can change you
they are the strangers
they will never know who you are
who you are
Track Name: No More Evil
one bad day and
I was torn
from the sky
to the treetops
I was born
to live my life
and keep the peace
and eat, and sleep and then decease
and when we least expect to greet
each other we accept defeat
to forces at our feet
that tingle slowly from the heat
and I remember
I wandered on the eyelids of the demon
shouting "why am I by myself"
he said "leave your evil"
standing in the sunshine staring at the sky
we're lifeforms crawling out the mother's eye
standing on the forest floor looking at the trees
we're alive, we die, but we revive so easy

I once was lost but now I'm found
ever since I left the hollow ground
where cameras operated daily
taking photos of surrounding
strange reactions to anomalous shapes
as the factions lay and ate their grapes
and crepes, they say there's no escapes
at the gate, they made a great mistake
but then I saw a vision from the devil
who just wanted to help

he said "leave your evil"
now i'm
standing in the sunshine staring at the sky
as a lifeform crawling out the mother's eye
standing on the forest floor looking at the trees
they're alive, they die, she revives so easily

no more evil plaguing lands
and no more blood that's on our hands
no more of your people too numb to care
about no more ozone in the air

no more people scared to live
and no more wealthy kings that give
no more than just some crumbs and water
no more slums and no more slaughter

well in this trashcan stadium
we will all feel the same
we will join together
and we will shout no name

we will destroy your captor
and free your people
this is the final chapter
there will be no more evil

there will be no more
denying that the answer lays
in just starting over again
with a clean slate
so I will agree
to help you all see
and maybe one day
we'll escape misery
again

the hero had confused his purpose
and as he took a deep breath and slumped back into the soil from the surface
he went into a deep state of meditation
only to emerge in a world where he was encased by pavement and found himself yelling at a screen and pushing buttons as a method of conveying information from his native land. little did he know that there was evil in this world that he could never understand
Track Name: One Day
one day I can be a newborn again and I can't wait but
tomorrow's gonna be the next best thing
I can feel it in me
one day I will send a postcard
from my private paradise
the sunrise melting minds as I sing
can you feel it in you

cause i feel decisions coming on
i gotta make my mind up
one way or another
i will climb my way down

onto the tailwind of happiness
or if you prefer something more realistic
i can call it some metal and some dead carcasses
draping my body as i assume correct posture
i'm

speeding through the whirlwind tides
I see nothing but desperation and tired minds
so closed and cold
no feelings till they're sold
i've had it up to here
with these prying eyes
they tell me lies
and i can empathise no more
so
sometime, i will get around to
doing things that i should
till then every day's a notch in my head
but there's no space for them left
someday, I will be content but
till then i'm just waiting
it's not a big deal when i write down
but when speak it out loud
it seems

i've got some issues, or so they say
but i guess just fuck it anyway
cause i can't have my cake
so what's the point in baking
i'm just
speeding through the whirlwind tides
I see nothing but desperation and tired minds
so closed and frozen
chewing up my life
i've had it up to here
with these prying eyes
they tell me lies
and i can empathise no more

and so the great warrior rose from his seat,
exited the tree house, looked across the canopy and saw no soul worth saving.
but a fascinating wind of change came blowing from the heavens
and he looked at the troops, all the people in need, he then excitedly accept their challenge then said
Track Name: Icefall
I missed my flight to utopia because I had a couple of drinks
think copious amounts of opiates in the sinks of the masses
stuck in the molasses
past tense fascists trashing all the passions

rats, I'm a castaway but what could I do?
When all I had in life was just my number in a queue
I withdrew from the crew quite smoothly and truly
profusely perused the beauty of the icefall
Track Name: City of Fools
crawling through the planes that i showed you
whenever it rains i'm bestowed to
lift myself above the virus
wipe the light from my iris

we don't see
we don't speak no never at all
but this time is different
I told you, the city will fall
I've been telling you for 21 years
of how the devil appears
and puts the poison in your ears

through the footprints in dust
be slow if you must
just have your say with the ways you trust

we' re stepping through grime
on the mountains we climb
they will all be gone in a few years time

cause this is the city of fools
so you know that
everyone will die soon
and I swear I know
those country roads won't take you home no more

anarchy belongs to the wealthy
when your dreams are no longer healthy
can't you see these years are happily
lingering through tears of apathy

well we can't find time to assemble
our minds
no never at all
and things will not be different
i told you, just open your head
I've been counting bodies, 21 dead
while all the rest of us bled
we will no longer be mislead

through the footprints in dust
be slow if you must
have your say with the ways that you trust

we're stepping through grime
on the mountains we climb
will all be gone in a few years time

cause this is the city of fools
so you know that
everyone will be dead soon
and I swear I know
these concrete walls can't hide you anymore

cause this is the city of fools
so you know that
everyone will be dead soon
and I swear I know
these concrete walls can't hide you anymore
the saddened stars will cry
when they'll be knocking at your door
make a cautious stride
and let the air take you away
when it tells you that
those country roads won't take you home no more

we're ok we're alright together
Track Name: Hive on Fire
setting out
from the flames
of the underground
empty out my brains

it's been a
while since you left these isles
underground the city thrives
buildings rise high, amongst the sky
we reside

oh we're so beautiful but struggling
they don't even know
we are observant spirit beings
high above the throne

they said we've got the means
but we don't have the passion
of the kings and queens
and of the lords they ration

out so blank and miserable
but we will overcome
all the souls conditional
returned to where they're from

well i don't feel like going now
but i don't wanna just sit around

this is your last chance to be
something that everyone wanted to see
when you have decided to open your heart
you will wander then all of them watch
everything fall apart

so we're setting out
from the flames
of the underground
empty out my brains

it's been sometime
since we emphasised
etiquette that's centralised
edging so slyly psychic smiles
at the devil's eyes
practically, we're broken
nothing left to save
but our hearts are too outspoken
for the lives we crave

well i don't feel like going now
but i don't wanna just sit around

this is your last chance to be
something that everyone wanted to see
when you have decided to open your heart
you will wander then all of them watch
everything fall apart

setting out
from the flames
of the underground
empty out the things
I never knew
as we have become
this anomaly of life
as one we ride on
Track Name: Wintermint
once a zygote, now you're flying
throughout this microcosm trying
to live as planned by prophecies untold
and properly you've been controlled
by demons, hell beings
they've made it hard to see things
the way they are, but it's a brand new dawn
now feel the good buzz start to come on
now with the breath you've drawn
feel the good buzz start to come on
come on you're the cosmic spawn
feel the good buzz start to come on
come on you've been called upon
feel the good buzz start to come on
come on it's a brand new dawn
feel the good buzz start to come on
now get out of your head!
it's dangerous there
get out of your head
don't be afraid
get out of your head
it won't be long
until the question comes on strong
get out of your head
and into the void
get out of your head
it's not that hard
get out of your head
it won't be long
until the answer proves you wrong

we break apart the peace to understand intentions
everybody speaks
and everybody mentions
the things we do for fun
we break apart the sun
and state our observations
we ruin implications
