Track Name: Black Out
Black out
Block the sun
Choke the air
Spend it all
Pay no mind
See no end
You waste land
Get away with everything
Don’t bother to forget - Don’t bother to forget - Just black out

Take the most by any means around
Give back when you’re rotting in the ground.
Take the most by any means around
Give back when you’re rotting in the ground
Nothing is enough
You will be the last
Take the most by any means around
Give back when you’re rotting in the ground
Track Name: E.I.S.E.M.
I look around, I don't like what I see
I'd like someone to trim the family tree
In fellow man I wish I could believe
But everyone is stupid except me
I don’t want your blood on my fucking hands
I don't want your blood on my fucking hands

I'm not in charge, I wouldn't want to be
Cuz if I was, I'd wipe this fucker clean
I have no clue what I'd do differently
Still everyone is stupid except me
I don't want your blood on my fucking hands
But I would be fine if it rained from the sky
Track Name: On the Watch
Can't trust the law
Can't trust the gods
Can't trust the boss
They all look out for themselves

Have faith in the clock - It will take care of them all - There's no time to spare on the watch

No time to spare
No time to care
No time to dare
When you’re watching your back

Have faith in the clock - It will take care of us all - Keep your eyes fixed on the watch

Eyes on the watch - We’re on the clock
Track Name: No Signal
Trade for comfort, give your data
Where you are, what you're afraid of
Live a life of total freedom as they watch your every movement

They’ve got the electric eye, in your hand and in the sky
They want to know all that you do, so take a photograph of your poo

Your business is their business
And business is good
Your business is their business
Your business is their business
And business is good
How much can they take from you?
No signal, just noise
They're asking for it
Shit
Track Name: My World
Walking lines, paying fines
Never run too far from home
Eating shit, throwing fits
Picture life in the unknown

My reality, my entire world
My reality, my whole universe is walking lines, all the time
Maybe tonight I’ll find a way to say no
Track Name: The Drought
Idiots reign and it won’t pour
Can’t get any anywhere anymore
If you wanna get some you gotta pay,
but the product and currency are the fucking same
This is how it is in the burning world
This is how it is in the burning world
This is how it is in the burning world
This is how it is in the burning world
Track Name: Nature's Lament
Every day, like the rest, something breathes its final breath and nothing matters
Every age comes and goes, populations melt like snow and nothing matters
In seven billion fucking years, it all implodes and starts at zero - Nothing matters

I tell myself this every time but it’s no help - It’s just so hard to say goodbye
I tell myself this every time but it’s no help - It’s just so hard to say goodbye

Once upon a God-damned time, everything grew up from slime and...
Ever since they first awoke they've all been at each other's throats and...
Now every single fucking day, some assholes think that they’ll be saved but they don't matter, no

I tell myself this every time and it’s all true - It’s still so hard to say goodbye
I tell myself this every time and it’s all true - It’s still so hard to say goodbye

Not this time
Track Name: Nuclear Retort
Just like that, cell rebellion
Violence from within atoms
Ripped to shreds from the inside
Nature laughs as they all die
Nuclear retort - Nuclear retort - Nuclear retort - Fuck you

Fail safe activated
Their bones evaporated
There’s no blast on the skyline, everything just goes silent
Nuclear retort - Nuclear retort - Nuclear retort - Fuck you

Worms feast on body parts left over
Turning flesh into soil
In the end everything’s a meal, leave it out for too long and it spoils
Sun shines and the landscape exhales
Sold the farm, paid in full
In the end everything’s a seed, bury it deep enough and it grows
