And all the brightest minds Their work amounts to nothing A fleeting chance for breaking through And all the wasted years A minor change for nothing Though you will turn a blind eye We can’t be fed by fear We will be left with nothing The world ain’t ours to run aground These are words to heed I know they count for something Though you will turn a blind eye Wiped out as we stand by Wiped out as we stand by Wiped out as we stand by Wiped out as we stand by

Wilderness 04:18
We don’t need another dream Pluck and scrape until we’re clean We wouldn’t know what we’re gonna miss We look for sights too far to see Find our place and let it be Nothing ever really came from this Wilderness Ever wonder who you are? Never do, it ain’t productive to throw your gaze into the abyss Throw away your doubts and fears Keep your open mind at ease We were never really made for this Wilderness Wilderness I am human after all only one can’t make a difference nothing ever really came from this I knew what I was after thought I knew what I was after But I don’t care for this I don’t care for this And I’m all over this

I’ve been through something I don’t know what it is I’m tired of thinking it through I’ve been through something Don’t tell me what it is I know the blame is on you Our home, our land The hands that built it The ties that bound our lives We used to be So much better Who gave them the right? Make it right Zealous patriot Hear the plebiscite

The Knife 04:07
Walk with us Carry the load Follow through Never alone Please man Carry on Follow through Never alone Violent places you’re gonna wake in Nothing there can keep you sound That is why You’ll carry the load and follow through Never alone The whole We cannot do without The knife may call The knife may call You’re humbler then you used to be You’re smaller then you used to be You’re slower then you used to be You’re humbler then you need to be Are you afraid of what you’ll be? Now will you try and compensate? For all the cost you generate and leave society? Here we are Here we are The whole We cannot do without The knife may call The knife may call

Forgotten 04:40
Eating out with friends and afterwards we dance, we dance Let us give this decent romance A half decent chance The warmth of home My mother’s arms Forgotten A woman’s charm The thrill of love Forgotten The dreams of life I’ve kept within Forgotten Forgotten Forgotten Forgotten Oh no I can’t seem to feel nothing no more Oh no (Well) I’m not alone in here And I work in finance I have a human soul Got a loan on quite a mansion I am in full control A woman’s charm I kept within Forgotten The dreams of life My mother’s arms Forgotten The warmth of home The thrill of love Forgotten Forgotten Forgotten Forgotten Oh no, How can I still feel something somehow Oh no, I’m not alone in here Can’t be alone in here I am alone in here We are rich, beyond measure All the fruit rotting on the trees Focused on the wealth of pleasure Focused on the wealth of pleasure Pleasure Pleasure
7.
Nobody Here 03:46
This world is lost on you There ain’t no use in fighting We should have seen it all before the end The waves that carried us So easily compliant We saw the wound but never stalled the flow It took the time to grow The will was lost on you You saw no use in trying Still you wonder why we’ve reached the end We watch the remnant fall Amongst the junk, discarded We reaped the soil but never bothered to sow We took that time to grow
8.
Cavemen 07:02
Push through the irony Here’s what it means to me Words like machinery Flopping like a broken reel You can say whatever you want I’ll hear whatever I want It’s not the words that stay It’s what they mean to me Let the wheel, slip in your hands Hit the brakes, now How much for your right hand? How much for a liver spent? How much for a hairless boy? How much for a naked priest? To grant you eternity That’s what it means to me I won’t be there anyways Love comes to the man who stays In his house, alone, forever That’s right, we’ll live Forever in here Forever in me

Road Of Gold 03:45
The work is over There’s a lonely end in time The road of gold A life that would never be The work is over Why don’t you just disappear Along the road The road of gold The road of gold The road of gold The work is over It’s the final enterprise The road of gold A life that could never be The work is over And one day we’ll be gone from here Along the road The road of gold The road of gold The road of gold
10.
Roadkill 04:19
I left you by the road, I am too kind for all the words you left implied I am a man, you knew my mind My time with you an endless grind Our hearts were beating misaligned For never have I been divine Then we felt the rounding edge of time The haze of grey we dulled in wine Together drowned our mind's desires I know you cannot feel it It’s in the mind alone And we’re forever darkness, both alone I know you can not see it It’s in my eyes alone We’re forever Darkness, darkness, flesh and bone I know you cannot feel it It’s in the mind alone And we’re forever darkness, both alone I know you can not see it It’s in my eyes alone We’re forever Darkness, darkness, flesh and bone
