Track Name: Like Sheep
How active can we be?
When words desecrate so easily.
Abandoned promises, fraudelant condolences.
What is real? Who can I trust?
My idea of time, transcribed, fixed to mind,
Seeking release of the artificial grind.
It can be reversed!
Dismay negative intentions,
Open your arms to the beauty in thought.
All the actions you could be inducing,
But instead your not.
Find the beauty in thought.
A lies inevitable rot.
Find the beauty in thought.
I don’t say this for nothing,
I mean it with all of my heart.
You know that when the smoke clears,
It has been fake from the start.

I see the filth of this world,
Overtaking what we’ve worked to retain.
Our lives are collapsing,
But our conviction remains.
Track Name: Fingerprints
In an unexpendable energy we should expect the best from all.
Anything can be changed with the power of the mind, I am capable of never feeling anxious.
I am capable of never being scared, to never feel lustful, to never be addicted.
I am capable of spiritual and industrial science and discovery.
I could withstand any urge for sin; I could bear any negative torment, only to use that aggression to help my brothers and sisters.
I could find the deep and imperishable lights in every soul; while ignoring any pointless, opinionated, negatives I may form in my own mind. Don't we feel it everyday? The possibilities.
There is an energy surrounding you and me.
Don't we feel it everyday? The possibilities.
But I'm stuck, and I know every one of you are stuck, in a pit that we picture to be deeper than everyone else's. We must feel each other pain.
I know I can do it, but why don't I?
This lack of persistence is eradicating us.
Convict in your passions, and find the joy in people.
We need to stay together.
We need to stay together.
Track Name: The Right to Bear Claws
How does it feel?
To ask the same questions,
and recieve nothing.
Quit pondering!
You are clouded,
by this meaningless thought.
Towering them all,
wasn't enough.
You've spent your whole life,
building it higher. (x2)
Only to realize,
what you've become.
A withering old man,
grown scared of,
the highest of mountains; the greenest of trees.
Only to realize,
what you've missed.

It seems it's become,
a race for death.
Exhausting lies will fulfill the tongue,
of a coward, a coward.

What makes you so obligated?
So entitled, to your crown.
Show me your palace,
it is in ashes;
I've brought liberty to the fearful.

Oh
This is your final test,
will you escape this hell?

Watch every cloud pass.
Not to revere the brush of wind against your skin,
but only the clouds in the sky.
For they know where they have been;
a path less traveled.

You are not your possessions,
leave this time.
Take the wheel,
explore the corresponding side.
This is not you,
this is not you. (x2)
Blinded by content it seems.
Drop all your guns,
their drives are tangent.
Drop all your guns,
their drives are tangent.
Track Name: Rustlung
Look at this life,
Really look at it.
It feels so wrong,
this isn't what you want.
'Cause there is one,
beautiful star that makes your,
gut scream.
'Cause there is one,
beautiful star that makes your,
heart sing.
Begin pursuit,
let the clocks move.
It is time,
well wasted.
Life's great chase,
is what I live for.
And nothing less;
and nothing less.
This house is not your home,
with all these debts and petty things you own.
You try to find glory in the world that you see,
when salvation comes through the air that you breath.
When they lay me to rest,
will my words be forgotten?
Track Name: Hierarchy
It was written before us all, carved in stone;
Depicting our hierarchy, with perfect precision.
Let it be known, we are not alone,
but the one's to fear, are our own.
Let it be known, we are not alone,
but the one's to fear, are our own.
It is a new faith of fact and hope.
God's save us today, their power is not justified.
Wash the blood from our hands,
speak through your monuments.
This is the time, I am ready.
Wash the blood from our hands,
speak through your monuments.
The sun is shining,
feel it radiate all over.
It is too much for one person to change.
Speak the truth,
and pray for yourself.
Pray for yourself.
If all hearts were like yours,
we would have a chance.
If all hearts were like yours,
yes we'd have a chance.
