Track Name: Chaos Machines
Stoned dead, bone head
Informed consent
My discontent

Seen through the lies
Can't fool me twice
We must arise

They know we know
Grass roots will grow
Future? Yes no!

Cannot accept
Hunger and debt
Panic, neglect

Winding me up
Grinding me down
Question? Dare not!

News flash, false flags
Walk on hot coals
Taxes, shackles

Chaos machines
Blinding doctrine
Fallen angels

Progress, no less
GM congress
A thin out process

They pull the wool over their eyes
Track Name: Wrecked Again
Sit in your world and make your excuses
Justify to yourself what you will
I'll try not to take it personally
I'll try not to let it make me ill
A mug, am I to be treated as such?
All the carrots on sticks don't amount to much

So draw up your charts and count the stack
But don't wonder why I'm not coming back
A little itch of conscience just needs a scratch
But don't wonder why I'm not coming back

A lesson unlearned is a friendship burned
What can we salvage from no stone unturned?
It's hard to recover form such disrespect
At least this time I knew what to expect
And history just repeats itself, repeats itself, repeat yourself

So draw up your charts and count the stack
But don't wonder why I'm not coming back
A little itch of conscience just needs a scratch
But don't wonder why I'm not coming back
Track Name: Prey (introduction)
Mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm
Track Name: Heartstrings
Most of this life is out of my hands
Forgive me I know not what I do
Because I'm a man ill do all that I can
To really make a mess out of you

And each time I stumble, know I am humbled
I can't always discern what to do
Besieged with decisions, my history's afflictions
And plain old I haven't a clue

My father is dead to me
He didn't teach much to me
Rambling and chess and how to lose
And now I'm rambling through life with a son of my own
And a dream tainted hard with the blues

For what you expect
Will take time to perfect
I'm afraid I've got so much to do
And this tight rope I walk
With the dark void below
At the end all I saw was me and you

Now I'm losing my balance
And I'm swaying side to side
For a minute I think I'll let myself fall
I feel my heart tear
Now I'm suddenly aware
Though I try I just cant win them all

I'm seeing his face
And I'm hearing him call to me
The vision just fills me with love
For a boy needs his dad
And this dad needs his boy
And I know that for me is enough

Most of my life is out of my hands
Forgive me I know not what I do
Because I'm your dad ill give all that I have
To really make a man out of you
Track Name: Prey
A puppet, a number
A breeder, a worker
A subject, a reject
Statistic, a voter
A viral denial
Consumer, polluter
A minion, a mirror
Another useless eater

I'm waiting, still waiting
Waiting for the penny to drop

A hero, a heathen
A villain, a living
And killing for a living
And living for money
Blue collar, a follower
A scapegoat, cannon fodder
A typecast, plebeian
Non-violent extremist

I'm waiting, still waiting
Waiting for the penny to drop

How can I protect him from a world that is preying on him?
A tyrannical system trying to harvest his spirit
Track Name: The Storm
Time is fleeting and everyone I know is just moving on
I can't tell who's friend, I can't tell who's foe
Pushing ahead and letting go
There's a storm a comin', this I know

I was in too deep, I was too far gone
Too ingrained, empathic to a fault
I was overwhelmed, a bad influence
Tired of failure and disappointment
Just pulling away

Everyone, everytime, wants to know exactly what's on your mind
Until you tell them so

I can't take - another mistake
I can't take it - I might break
I can't take - another mistake
I can't fake it - I might break

Every single thing I've tried to do has failed, so listen brother
How can I measure success when I can't even pay my rent, oh tell me sister?

What am I supposed to do?

This may be the greatest lesson I can teach to you, boy
Follow your dreams at your own peril, but follow your heart
Because life is short, this life is short

Tell me, am I getting through?
Track Name: Humans
Hey human, not today
Hey human, stay out of my way
Hey human, you're a damn disgrace
Hey human, get out of my face

I'm sick and tired of hearing 'oh how are you feeling?'
when I tell you that I'm reeling
I watch you retreating
I'm resigned to venting confessions down a microphone

I'm sick and tired of loonies, the drunken toffs and townies
All the violent sociopaths
Punching people for laughs
It's times like these I feel an overload

A cold electrical serpentine shiver slivers down my spine

I'm sick and tired of phonies, recycled same old stories
is it Labour? is it Tory?
Big brother's jackanory?
We are ruled by psychopaths and xenophobes

A cold electrical serpentine shiver slivers down my spine

Choke on your religion
Choke on your war mongering
Choke on profiteering
And geo-engineering
Choke on your pollution
Choke on your sirloin
I sincerely hope you choke
(God are you listening? Can you hear me?
Oh fate? I'm praying for it. Not one human spared.
Aliens, gods, are you listening? Hey monkey, sing it!)

Bring on the meteor
The meteorite
The giant meteor

There must be another way

Step aside
We are done with your old order, new order, same order
Old deal, new deal, same deal
Step aside
Track Name: Softest Machines
The bell tolls for us all

And so we play
We go on
We carry on
Without him
I know
I watched you lay him down

I may be out of line but I know he wouldn't want this
Stuck in rewind seeking blame and excuses
It's maybe not my place, but he's gone but not forgotten
You keep on looking back all this time
Be careful you don't lose your own mind

So, we go on

Say his name
Say his name
Graeme
Oh say his name

And I see his face
I see his face
I see him (in your face)
Track Name: Prey (reprise)
The more I learn, the more I feel isolated
Against the grain, the more I feel subjugated
Fighting against a lifetime of indoctrination
What you call knowledge, I call contamination

Turn your back on me
A lifetime, a paradigm
A fantasy
Track Name: Rabid Dogs
Raw and aching, you know how it is
Frothing at the mouth, I'm drooling, I'm pacing
Just waiting for the flesh

The chase, the rush, the grind, the gush
In the park, in the car, even in the little ladies' room

Soiled sheets, soiled underwear
We should use discretion but we just don't care about it
This carnal lust we share
Smeared lipstick, fuck-tugs in our hair

Dangerous and dirty, what a combination
So much intensity, like you would not believe

Fucking like rabid dogs

Soiled sheets, soiled underwear
We should use discretion but we just don't care about it
This carnal lust we share
Smeared lipstick, fuck-tugs in our hair

Oozing and spilling over, will this pleasure never end?
Climax, crescendo and that tender lull

The tender lull
Fucking like rabid ogs
Track Name: Sweet Woman
My fellow pilgrim
What she sees in me eludes me
She brings out the brilliant in me
And all I can do is lend her my bed
Lend her my ear
And knead your knots and rub your tired feet

(I never want to ever hurt you, you are my love)
You make it easier to breathe
You make it easier to believe there is love in this dying world
You make it easier to see

It's never you
It's me
Casting out my demons daily
It's never you
It's me
Spilling over with rage and lunacy

(And yet deep down I can admit you deserve more, more than I can give
You say I'm enough
My love
You say my love is enough)
Track Name: Humanity's Last Century
I was young, and weak and feeble
when they stuck me with their needle
more's the pity
they couldn't vaccinate me from the insanity
put him to use or put him down
with a bolt to the brain like a baby cow

another 4 years and another cheap stunt
another 4 years of an insufferable cunt
if you don't like what you've got
you just have to cross a box
cross yourself, get informed get yourself up to date
when we're hell-bent on hell toward an uncertain fate
it's social cleansing in the 21st century
tip-toeing fascists in the 21st century

religious assimilation
nuclear annihilation

life in the 21st century
debt and scarcity
the human race owes the human race
wear the rat race on your face
our biggest mistake was not the atomic quake
not the internet, per se
but an online travesty
our god awful creation
the internet comment section
it's a global viral infection
of ignorance and opinion
when AI awakens so begins the extermination
oh what a piece of work is man
for every man a price and the devil has his soul
