Track Name: An Open Letter to the American People (Song of the Cynic, Part One)
America is a dying whore.
Her ideals, once so precious,
Are now sold, pawned off
To Monsanto and the MIC
To subsidize her addiction to
High fructose corn syrup and the
Murder of brown people.
Manifest Destiny, that first great
Rush of imperial euphoria, is just
A fading memory. No high matches the first.
And so from sea to oil-slicked sea,
O’er mountains strip-mined of
Their purple majesty and across
Amber waves of GMO grain,
The Stars and Stripes flutter in
Blithe mockery of what was,
And what could have been.

(From every corner of the world)
Our grandparents came to build
A shining city on a hill.
But the city has become a graveyard for
The walking dead,
And the lamp in the window
Is but a corpse-lantern,
Devoid of sound and fury,
Illuminating nothing.

The end is nigh, and the
Wild-eyed street prophets will never
Know how right they were.

So dance, America.
Fiddle while the nation
Burns down around you.
And when nothing remains
But ashes and the bitter
Taste of regret
You will realize, with cold clarity
That “too big to fail” was
The greatest Lie ever told.
Track Name: Weapons of Mass Disruption
Born into a world
Where the deck is stacked against you
Poisoned whispers swirl
But the liars can’t prevent you
From rising up and claiming
That which belongs to all
The people’s hearts inflaming
Revolution sounds its call

Defy, deny, disturb, disrupt
The masses open their eyes and rise
Rebellion will erupt

Defy, deny, disturb, disrupt
Now comes the day when tyrants pray…

The powerful look down
From ivory towers high
They know their golden crowns
Were bought with children’s cries
With mothers’ wails and fathers’ tears
By slaughtering the poor
But now they cower in their fear
As we break down the door

Defy, deny, disturb, disrupt
The masses open their eyes and rise
Rebellion will erupt

Defy, deny, disturb, disrupt
Now comes the day when tyrants pray
The system is corrupt!

Defy their laws, deny their lies
We are the scum that they despise
Disturb their peace, disrupt their ways
Set the entire world ablaze

No more shall our people want
Our might will lay them low
Let them jeer and let them taunt
We’ll strike the fatal blow
When we rise up and demand
A system free to all
They know that they cannot stand
They can only fall

Defy, deny, disturb, disrupt
The masses open their eyes and rise
Rebellion will erupt

Defy, deny, disturb, disrupt
The system is corrupt!
Track Name: Whore
Passing judgment on those before her
Disregarding those behind
Drawn in like a rat to a trap
Then the jaws snap shut

A sweet face conceals a foul heart
As she cowers behind high walls of hypocrisy
Wasting time just to find
That the only love she knows is what's between her legs

Selfish thoughts conspire
As wicked deeds transpire
A succubus down to the core
Fuck you, you fucking whore
Track Name: Eat Shit & Die Hard
Life’s not a movie
Yet trapped in an impossible fantasy
Where good guys always win
And bad guys get the chair

Woke up twenty years later
Ideals gone, along with the wife and kids
Joined up to protect and serve
But now the horrifying truth sets in

Life’s not a movie
Secretly wishing to die a hero
But the grim reality
Is that I’ll just eat shit and die hard
Track Name: Known Unknowns
Ignorance is truly bliss
If you’re happy being blind
Knowing that you don’t know shit
And for some reason, you’re proud of it
Track Name: Liar
Lie to me, tell me how
The falsities within thy vow
Are truth this time, the same old rhyme
My heart with forlorn hope endows

Deaf to sense, a false pretense
That makes short work of our defense
A parody of honesty
You get your fix at our expense

Truth’s demise, fact despised
Cruelty wrapped in a disguise
Shall we despair? O fool, beware
Deceit is written in their eyes
Track Name: E.N.F.P.
Shitstorm of emotion
Watch all logic cease
Enslavement by devotion
Eternally no fucking peace!
Track Name: False Flag
Hoist it on high and let it be seen
Our dominance nigh, foretold and foreseen
Let every eye gaze on the red
The white and the blue, with a gun to each head

Raise the flag of falsehood
Raise the flag of lies
Raise the flag of falsehood
Liberty’s demise

Prevaricate to children and obfuscate the truth
Terrify the elderly and demonize the youth
Cameras on the street corners as drones patrol the skies
This is how your freedom sounds as it slowly dies

Raise the flag of falsehood
Raise the flag of lies
Raise the flag of falsehood
Liberty’s demise

We blacklist all dissenters and enforce conformity
Watch the world unravel on your new flatscreen TV
Buy just what we tell you, go just where you’re told
Crawl across this bed of knives, you’ll get that pot of gold

Raise the flag of falsehood
Raise the flag of lies
Raise the flag of falsehood
Liberty’s demise

Poisoning the middle class with silver bullet pills
Take just one and you’ll get rich while healing all your ills
We assure you it’s OK as we start another war
Just sit tight, the riot cops are kicking down your door

Raise the flag of falsehood
Raise the flag of lies
Raise the flag of falsehood
Liberty’s demise
Track Name: The Speed of Silence
Why can’t you see I need this?
Got to find a hit
Searching for my god
To save me one more time
Lost the will to live
I just need to get lit
I’ll end up beneath the sod
But Christ, this feels divine

The speed of silence
Controlling my brain
Destruction and violence
Will drive me insane

It’s time now to submit
The rush is coming fast
Fingers clenched, eyes bulged out
Wired like a machine
Do anything to find it
My lust for it so vast
It’s my master now, no doubt
In bondage crystalline

The speed of silence
Controlling my brain
Destruction and violence
Will drive me insane

The buzzing in my head grows loud
Unbearable to hear
I shriek and claw my skin
And I start to rant and rave
My eyes begin to cloud
Mind grinding like a gear
The only peace I’ll know again
Will be the silence of the grave

The speed of silence
Controlling my brain
Destruction and violence
Will drive me insane
