Track Name: Nemacyst
I feel my flesh pull from the bone,
Scratching at a wound that will never heal,
Skin under nails and all of this fails,
To make me believe I am not a repeat,
Numbered and filed,
Tagged and forgotten,
I’ve run out of space for the labels you give,
I am not a duplicate,
I am the archetype.

Cornucopia of bullshit theories,
Of who I am and who I wanna be,
What will you do when you’re the pig,
Brought up to the slaughter,
And all you got left is your shame?
Déjà vu same old shit,
Juxtaposed to the next big thing,
We are the nemacyst,
On your nemasystem.

Do you feel it inside?
Inside you the virus hides,
This is not another trend,
This is a way of life.

We won’t sit in your category,
Tear a new skin to be unique,
Just when you think you know where you could place us,
We change our faces and become reborn,
Mask the skin to hide the sorrow,
In a world with no tomorrow,
We will never compromise,
And always push your boundaries.

The only thing you can count on,
Is not to count on anything,
Unpredictable is how we like being,
So get used to having to get used to it,
Analgesia will keep me breathing,
Whilst all you do is keep comparing,
We are the nemacyst,
On your nemasystem.

Do you feel it inside?
Inside you the virus hides,
This is not another trend,
This is a way of life.

You are the blinkered, you are the blind,
And we are the lesion that you cannot hide.
You are the perfect, you are divine,
We are the cancer that you cannot fight.

Obeying oppression is never the answer!
Rebelling the routine is always the answer!

Stand for what you wanna stand for,
Don’t take less when you want more,
You can always break the chains that will always be holding you back,
Fight for what you fight for,
Set your rules don’t follow their laws,
'Cause you know they will always be planning their next attack.

Stand for what you wanna stand for,
Don’t take less when you want more,
You can always break the chains that will always be holding you back,
Fight for what you fight for,
Set your rules don’t follow their laws,
'Cause you know they will always be planning their next attack,
And there’s no looking back!

You know they will try anything to control your mind,
You know they will try everything to keep you in line,
You know they will try everything to take what is mine,
To take what is mine...

You know they will try anything to control your mind,
You know they will try everything to keep you in line,
You know they will try everything to take what is mine,
To take what is mine!
To take what is mine!
To take what is mine!
Track Name: Delirium
Sanitise the sanity,
Faceless is the enemy,
I am a martyr to every piece of hate in you.

Alone I contemplate,
Pervaded by the bitterness,
Socially castrated,
Numbing to the emptiness,
You think you have the answers,
But the question still remains,
If you’ve killed all the senses,
Why can i still taste the pain?

Governed by your herd instinct,
Displacing your will to think,
Blissful in the revelry,
In reverence for my heresy.

Delirium takes my eyes,
And plagues my thoughts a thousand times,
My mind is duopoly,
Why can’t I stop and just be me?

These walls close in,
They never stop,
This apprehension’s all i’ve got,
Living on borrowed time,
Deep within the feigned sublime,
Defiled purity,
Dissect and pity me,
My future has no past,
This mind was never built to last.

This pseudo laughter leads to pseudo states of mind,
I watched my reason as it fell between the lines,
These broken promises fermenting from within,
I scratch the itching but it lives beneath my skin.

I sit and wait in solitude,
You don’t see me but I see you,
Dazed in white serenity,
I am you but you’re not me.

You try to push me,
But this time you pushed me way too far,
You’ll never know me,
But I know exactly who you are,
All the illusion, confusion, delusion in me,
God damn, can't you see?
All this 'help' is killing me.

Delirium takes my eyes,
And plagues my thoughts a thousand times,
My mind is duopoly,
Why can’t I stop and just be me?

This pseudo laughter leads to pseudo states of mind,
I watched my reason as it fell between the lines,
These broken promises fermenting from within,
I scratch the itching but it lives beneath my skin.

Hard to find a cure when there’s no diagnosis,
Can’t deny that you’re feeding my psychosis,
Can’t you see in me? Cause I can see inside you,
As you sharpen the point on your point of view.

I’m never getting away,
You’ll always make sure I stay,
I am the new innovation,
In a lost generation.

God damn it all!

This is not the life!
This is not the dream!
This is just reality,
And nothing’s what it seems!

This pseudo laughter leads to pseudo states of mind,
I watched my reason as it fell between the lines,
These broken promises fermenting from within,
I scratch the itching but it lives beneath my skin.
Track Name: Deliriant
I’m hiding...
She’s finding...

I’m hiding away but she’ll find a way.

Breaking the cycle I let myself slip,
I’m desperately grabbing to just get a grip,
It’s so secluded and oh so beautiful,
So desolate and yet so optional,
It’s dancing so slowly inside of my mind,
Twisting and turning like the knife in my side,
It makes me feel so two-sided,
I can’t fight back ‘cause I’ve been blinded.

I’m hiding away but she’ll find a way.

Embracing the psycho I let myself flip,
I’ve given up grabbing to just get a grip,
It’s so covert and so commendable,
So desperate and so expendable,
It’s crying and trying to make me believe,
Hurting and breaking like the heart on my sleeve,
It makes me feel so two-sided,
In darkness I will find release and I’m hiding away from this.

I’m hiding away but she’ll find a way,
I’m hiding away but she’ll find a way,
She always finds a way, she always finds a way,
She always finds a way, she always finds a way!

I hate the truth, hate the lies,
Hate the failures, hate the tries,
Hate the past, hate the now,
Hate this shit that’s going down,
I hate this life, hate this place,
Hate these thoughts, hate this face,
I hate this mind, hate these walls,
And I hate you so fuck you all!

Hooked up to the pig that feeds you,
Your life’s a mirror of what precedes you,
All feeding from the swine,
We all consume so we all survive,
This blistered existence,
We all follow but it makes no sense,
We are the nothing, the minority,
The sheep in line.

Hooked up to the pig that feeds you,
Your life’s a mirror of what precedes you,
All feeding from the swine,
We all consume so they all survive,
This blistered existence,
We all follow but it makes no sense,
We are the nothing, the minority,
The sheep in line...sheep in line.

Oh what is it you’re waiting for?
An open invitation to it all?
I’m so much stronger than before,
‘Cause there’s just no fear anymore!

Oh what is it you’re waiting for?
An open invitation to it all?
I’m so much stronger than before,
‘Cause there’s just no fear anymore!
Track Name: Inertia
Deeply dazed in clouded mind,
Shrouded from the truth I’d find,
Digging deep into abyss,
Finding fragments I had missed,
Memories play hard to get,
Pain just plays hard to forget,
Answers become hard to see,
In blindness that imprisons me.

This inertia,
Hiding, waiting silently,
For all this hate inside of me,
This inertia,
Hiding, waiting patiently,
To set this built up anger free.

Sleepless but still dreaming blind,
Insomniatic hazy lines,
Focusing but nothing’s clear,
Reaching out but nothing’s here,
Bludgeoned and betrayed I seek,
Words from things that cannot speak,
Answers become hard to hear,
In deafness to which I adhere.

Standing ground,
Bleeding out,
Head held down,
Hands reach out.

This inertia,
Hiding, waiting silently,
For all this hate inside of me,
This inertia.

This isn’t just retail,
The soul is not for sale,
You’ll never take me,
You’ll never break me,
I know I can’t win,
But you won't save me,
You sold us out just to feed your mouth,
You build your walls just to keep me out,
You think you’re durable,
This isn’t curable!

There is no cure for this,
'Cause this is the cure.
There is no cure for this,
'Cause this is the cure.
There is no cure for this (no cure for this),
'Cause this is the cure.
There is no cure for this (no cure for this),
This is the cure!

Clip the wings and let us fly,
Just to,
Watch us all fall from grace,
And die,
Drain our faith and stain belief,
In life,
Keep us all on tightened leash,
Kept quiet.
You keep us quiet.

Stop the liberated minds,
And find,
Better ways to keep us blind,
From lies,
All this time I’ve dazed in dream,
Believed,
Freedom isn’t all it seems,
It’s just… a… scheme… for… the… ma­chine

Standing ground,
Bleeding out,
Head held down,
Hands reach out.

Standing ground,
Bleeding out,
Head held down,
Hands reach out.

Standing ground,
Bleeding out,
Head held down,
Hands reach out.

Standing ground,
Bleeding out,
Head held down,
Hands reach out.

This inertia, this inertia
Hiding, waiting silently,
For all this hate inside of me,
This inertia, this inertia
Hiding, waiting patiently,
To set this built up anger free.

This inertia, this inertia
Hiding, waiting silently,
For all this hate inside of me,
This inertia, this inertia!

All this time you’ve enraged me,
Now revenge seems so bitter sweet,
Too proud to fall, too blind to see,
But now the end will set you free!
Track Name: You Were Nothing
Well I’ve had time to reflect,
Come to my own conclusions,
Justify my reasons,
And fight my confusions,
Fought through all the pain and doubt,
And I’ve come to realise,
It was always your problems,
And not mine that I despised.
Augmented every argument,
And kept me to yourself,
An orchestrated self destruction,
Pride placed on a shelf.

I’m not blaming myself again,
I won’t live in regret,
I don’t wish us back together,
I wish we’d never met.

And you were nothing at all,
And you won’t bring me down,
You cried a lifetime of tears,
Just to watch me drown.

Every memory deleted,
Every promise never kept,
I’ve battled with my conscience,
My desire is to forget,
I would never be enough for you,
No matter what I did,
Behind all your excuses,
Is where you always hid.
You thought you were so perfect,
In a world that’s so unjust,
But you never realised,
You piss, shit and die like the rest of us.

I’m not hurting myself again,
I’m thinning out your silhouette,
Don’t wish us back together,
Just try to forget!

And you were nothing at all,
And you won’t bring me down,
You cried a lifetime of tears,
Just to watch me drown.

I refuse to hate myself for this,
My hate is aimed at you,
Maybe if you keep praying,
Your death wish will come true,
I never wanted all of this,
I wish I’d never tried,
To sort out all your problems,
I should have let you die.

I should have let you die,
I should have let you cry,
I should have let you try,
Should have let you wonder why,
I should have let you die,
I should have let you cry,
I should have let you try,
Should have let you wonder why...

I should have let you die!
Should have let you wonder why,
I should have let you die!

I should have let you die!
Should have let you wonder why,
I should have let you die!
Track Name: Imperfect
I am labelled,
Fame is fable,
My own free will disabled,
Lift me up, Place the pride,
Let me fall.

Dissected and press infected,
My pre-planned thought injected,
Mind feels misanthropic,
As they make me sick.

Perfect defect,
Finding solace in my destitution,
I can fail this time,
Succumb to the sycophant,
My mind I won’t recant,
I’m drowning in the hate,
As it procreates.

They will follow if you lead,
If you fall then they will feed,
There’s no real, just reality,
You’re just way too blind to see.

Undermine and leave behind,
Your imperfect design,
The loyalty is just phase,
Delude! Manipulate!
You aid the renegades,
Enlighten then enslave,
I can see those eyes,
As they analyse.

Determined, reaching for Perfect,
In my mind I’ve reached the verdict,
Pushed and fought through rivalry,
Bled the flaws inside of me.

I am not the one,
I’m am anyone,
Just a casualty of your vanity,
And this apathy,
It callously pulls me down,
I am not the one,
I’m not anyone,
Just a effigy wrapped up in tragedy,
And this normality,
Is killing me (killing me!).

I am not the one but everyone keeps pushing me,
My life is in between the fake and the reality,
Holding on I can’t hold on this life just will not change,
The blood is in the water but I know it’s mine taste,
Free me, leave me,
Cut me from the umbilical prison cell,
Feeding me and bleeding me dry,

Revolt, resist, restrain,
You’ll never kill the pain,
And I will never live again,
Just give me my right to die!

All the dreams I’ve cherished,
Are the nightmares haunting me.
Track Name: A Life Worth Taking
I’m face to face with my worst regret,
Stuck in endless thoughts that I can’t forget,
The rules have been stated, stage has been set,
There ain't no way you're getting out of this yet,
Keep it under control gotta keep your head straight,
You gotta know that this feeling is just a state of mind,
You let the enemy decide my fate,
But the man in the mirror is the man I hate.

Just take my life,
And everything inside,
Cause I hate my life,
And everything inside.

My last breath will be my saviour,
Death, the great emancipator,
I won't let myself be forsaken,
Wake me up when you got a life worth taking,
My last breath will be my saviour,
Death, the great emancipator,
I won't let myself be forsaken,
Wake me up when you got a life worth taking.

So many times you've excused yourself,
Put the man you are in front of anyone else,
I don't wanna be anything not even myself,
It's hard to live a life when your life is your cell,
I can't stand the monster that I've come to be,
The very thing I despised has evolved into me,
And I hate the way I'm too blind to see,
That both the killer and the victim are played by me.

Just take my life,
And everything inside,
Cause I hate my life,
And everything inside.

My last breath will be my saviour,
Death, the great emancipator,
I won't let myself be forsaken,
Wake me up when you got a life worth taking,
My last breath will be my saviour,
Death, the great emancipator,
I won't let myself be forsaken,
Wake me up when you got a life worth taking.

Just take my life,
And everything inside,
Cause I hate my life,
And everything inside.

When this is over,
What will be left?
Balance?
Harmony?
The great equilibrium?
Or sheer chaos?
In the end,
I have to die.

We all have to die.
Track Name: Suppressional
Numbing mind and keep routine,
Psychoanalyse for the machine,
Controlled and kept sedated,
Pushed back into the life I hated,
I see it but they don’t see it,
It’s not their fault,
It’s just perspective is distorted,
State of mind contorted.

Repression, Suppression,
This is the only way they’ll win,
Repression, Suppression,
And they will do it again,
Repression, Suppression,
This is the only way they’ll win,
Repression, Suppression,
When will this stop?

Silenced to solemn,
Sedated to sober,
Corrected to conditional,
Dictatorship disguised as democracy,
Aren’t you seeing the routine at all?

Repression, Suppression,
This is the only way they’ll win,
Repression, Suppression,
And they will do it again,
Repression, Suppression,
This is the only way they’ll win,
Repression, suppressional.

Suppressional, suppressional, suppressional.

Lay down,
And let them walk all over you,
Your payment is overdue,
They own you,
Where’s your point of view?

(You) deaden the senses,
All lies and pretences,
Feelings in past tense,
Shut down of your defence,
Opinion in coma,
Observed under sonar,
Pragmatic and static,
Actions are inactive.
Never answer the question,
Rely on suppression,
Thoughts are maniacal,
Soul is mechanical,
Generic genetics,
Cuts are septic!
My intentions are chaste,
But time in thought is waste.

Lay down,
And let them walk all over you,
Your payment is overdue,
They own you,
Where’s your point of view (point of view!)?

The justice must be justified,
The truth is nothing but a lie,
The mission is commission,
The affluent will rise,
The justice must be justified.

Break me, you break me down,
Silence me, you turn us down,
Break me, you break me down,
Silence me, you turn us down,
Break me, you break me down,
Silence, you turn us down,

But I won’t give in to you.
