Track Name: Ouroboros
We get used to our doom
We pursue a strange loop

Eternal ouroboros
Another aimless arrow

Breathing, reeling modern artifact
Somehow standing completely intact

I better love my fate
Headed for a chain

We defend an ideal
We reject the spiked wheel

Eternal ouroboros
Another aimless arrow

Aging, changing priceless counterfeit
Bonding, braking for the sake of it

I better love my fate
Headed for a chain

We become the same thing
We succumb to the ring

Eternal ouroboros
Another aimless arrow

Sleeping, fleeting native replicas
Hoping, searching, pleading for what was

I better love my fate:
Headed for a chain

Return to me
Track Name: A Rhyming I
I was born in a swarm near the edge of time
With a crooked eye,
I saw my friends pass me twice,
Looked around, not a sound, not a wave goodbye,
I sat beside the silent tide.

I do not need you anymore
I live without a core

I was caught in a knot, body intertwined
With a naked mind,
I slipped into my decline,
Quarantined in a dream, safe and locked inside
I failed to find my inner light

I do not need you anymore
I live without a core

I was free from the seed sown above the spine
With a sacred scythe,
I cut a few Grecian vines,
Though my words were submerged, I felt so alive
And crossed a line I once denied.

I do not need you anymore
I live without a core
Track Name: Singularity Song
superhumans on supplemental self enhancers
we chose to chase the cancer
and we demanded answers
limited edition ego, no limit to our cogito, it froze
and preserved our culture

overdosed on our overflowing stimulation
we thrived on innovation
and digital immersion
we necessarily needed an endlessly increasing amount
of information

situated in simulated universes
we blocked our bio-curses
now, our death clock reverses!
a chronological dominance? we dominoed and we descended
into a virtual furnace
Track Name: David vs. David
He loiters in a parking lot and grins
He counts his money, not his sins
He lingers on the tongue of a foreign son
He can't recall much

He commands an army of intent
He bled the rest without regret
He'll supply the weapons for a strike
He seeks an ally

He's waiting for a new war
Blank agents to arm
And claim as his

He latches on to tragic acts and says,
"I'll control emotional events"
He portrays a man of common sense
He has the right stuff!

He prescribes an antidote for pain
He demands we up the dose again
He questions previous attacks
He lacks an exit plan

He's waiting for a new war
Blank agents to arm
And claim as his
Track Name: Melodrama
please don't praise me.
i wandered without cause.
i emerged from an accident,
and i scurried along
in a gutter somewhere.

please don't save me.
i survived on food alone.
i had no obligations
or symbols to fulfill.
then i made my own.

driven by desire...
the lower...?
the higher...?
a system entertained me
with melodrama.

please don't excite me.
i conquered what i could.
i believed in the accident,
and i carried a gun
in a gutter somewhere.

please don't revive me
and offer me the chance
to activate my bloodstream
and tilt a balanced land
in favor of my own kind

driven by desire...
the lower...?
the higher...?
a system entertained me
with melodrama.

my heart was a flame smothered in gasoline
i had it contained to a certain degree

but i was afraid and orchestrated a fall
a final embrace of nature's joke on us all

fossils of phrases, ancient cities of dust
animals graze where i battled the crust

memories fade, but if you value a scum
consider displaying me in a museum.

driven by desire...
the lower...?
the higher...?
a system entertained me
with melodrama.
Track Name: Everyone Goes to Church
get it out.
spill it.
confess your sin.
hell, i don't practice religion,
but everyone goes
everyone goes
everyone goes to church!

i'm a clean, skilled machine
and I worship my routine,
but i wish to secede.
should i run on guilt
until it kills me?

get it out.
spill it.
confess your sin.
hell, i don't practice religion,
but everyone goes,
everyone goes,
everyone goes to church!

i could hide in a crowd,
if i don’t wear a crown.
will you forgive me
if i give my will
to something worthy?

get it out.
spill it.
confess your sin.
hell, i don't practice religion,
but everyone goes
everyone goes
everyone goes to church!

i pray with my behavior
i pay for my behavior
Track Name: Smhilism
i don't care what happens to me.
i don't care what happens to be.
when the trouble bubbles into my mammalian brain
with a force of ordered domination ever-ingrained,
i smile against the gravity.

rabid dogs on a
tabula rasa
fools try to unleash
tools of mass disease

if you hammer in the head
with higher laws or heavy lead
or if you meddle with a sign
that you can’t define, get lost!

i don't care what happens to me.
i don't care what happens to be.
when the trouble bubbles into my mammalian brain
with a force of ordered domination ever-ingrained,
i smile against the gravity.

bodies organize
jobs to pluck and prize.
i'm a pawn scheduled to serve
concentrated nerves!

i don't wanna read a form
in the center of a storm!
how could i defeat the reign?
i gotta be insane! get lost!

i don't care what happens to me.
i don't care what happens to be.
when the trouble bubbles into my mammalian brain
with a force of ordered domination ever-ingrained,
i smile against the gravity.
