Thanks to my collaborators Colin, Jeff, Pax, and Steve- this project wouldn't exist if it weren't for your talents. Thanks to Rusty Banks for his encouragement and guidance, and my wife Maddie for consistently putting up with my unending noisemaking.

Track Name: Open Your Eyes
The light is here
The start is near
Just open your eyes

Signs of life revealed in the outer shell
The struggle to conform will leave you with a void

Suppressed thoughts betray your consciousness
Your reality is not your own
Never to know your own worth

Your existence is meaningless
Put faith in the pre-determined future
Secluded in paradise, leave the sanctuary to seek peace

The splendor of these creations-
Glorious

Controlling aspects of human progress
Teaching you to accept and not ask questions
Ignorance is bliss, and you don't know the difference

(This world is lost)

The splendor of these creations...

Oh brave new world!

Open your eyes
Track Name: Muttered Madness (Flaunting Your Disease)
Verse:
When I hear debating filled with hatred and the source is so outdated, related to a story that's inflated by a king who makes and takes a baby boy and asks him to be Atlas

Driving his son into madness what's fucked up is that this fucker knew exactly what would happen and instead of extending the olive brach,
he snapped it

Prechorus:
Teary and delirious, believers get so serious
In death i will look back and know my heart's beat was it's own
The universe, a wonder, no allegiance to a throne
A closet full of skeletons which many pick a bone

Chorus:
Like choking on water what once made you stronger
Has brought you to your knees
I've learned my lesson from your indiscretion-
You're flaunting your disease

Verse:
You thought this was a hard place?
I hope you hit a fucking rock
Could've saved a bit of trouble and just blown your top off
If I had dreamed to rule a nation I'd call from above
For delusion domination

Down from the divine, converting water into wine, the blind walk a blurred line, but he clearly preaches from his mind
To feed followers what to think,
leads them to a blood bath and forces them to drink

Chorus
Like choking on water what once made you stronger
Has brought you to your knees
I've learned my lesson from your indiscretion-
You're flaunting your disease

.die in peace.

Verse:
You're dying to be a god, a father, or a friend
You've lived all you can and think now this is the end
Try and hide your faults in a drink of cyanide the cult that you left to die brought to halt by a fear that results in you losing your mind

Prechorus:
Teary and delirious believers get so serious,
in death they will look back and wish they'd never met Jim Jones

(Like choking on water)

Chorus:
Like choking on water what once made you stronger
Has brought you to your knees
(Teary and delerious believers get so serious)
I've learned my lesson from your indiscretion-
You're flaunting your disease
(A man who muttered madness)
Track Name: Lost Connection (Instrumental)
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Lay You Down
The dark is here, the end is near
Just close your eyes
Now it comes
To lay you down
again...
