Track Name: A Most Painful Realisation

Feed like this
Breed like this
Lead like this

I’m irredeemable
I’m inescapable

I realise
I am the banshee
I am the poltergeist
I am the shadow
I am the sacrifice

Innocence & confidence
I’ll eat anything at all expense
I have a one-track mind
I’m inescapable
I am irreparable
I’m irredeemable

I realise I’m the monster in this paradise, I just want this to be over
I understand I’m the I’m the wocky in this wonderland, I just want this to be over now

You were not supposed to

Lead like this

I realise
I am the titan
I am the root of vice
I am the dragon
I am the ill device

Turbulence and dissidence
I’ll crush everything at all expense

I’m irredeemable
I’m inescapable

I came to fear, I’m the toxin in this atmosphere, I just want this to be over

I am the spectre
I am the fatal splice
I am the hunger
It will never suffice
Track Name: Is Your Feeling Formidable?
Let us pretend we are right
And our feelings are endless tonight

Oh human please,
Allow me to appeal to your emotions
Oh human see,
The hurts that you diffuse
Oh human hear,
The shrieking howls of your commotion
Oh human feel,
The weights of your abuse

Can you feel more than you feel now,
Can you feel me bleed
Can you feel more than you feel now,
Can you feel the need

Oh human please,
Allow me to address the gift of compassion
Oh human smell,
The putrid stench of man
Oh human taste,
The bitter tang of human fashion
Oh human feel,
The onslaught by your hand

Can you feel more than you feel now,
Can you feel me bleed
Can you feel more than you feel now,
Can you feel the need

Let us pretend we are right
And our feelings are endless tonight

(All) souls are connected, you feel before all else

You feel before all else, and still you go with your mind
You feel before all else, that’s the real human kind

Allow your feelings to blossom
Let the design run its course
Let your tears guide your hand
Before logic and force

Let us pretend we are right
And our feelings are endless tonight
Track Name: Logic and the Certainty Analogy
From premonition to solid proof
From simple premise to bitter truth

If - You - Can’t - Feel

Logic will lead you to sense, out of the shade
Logic will sling you beyond, well past the… gate

The wheels are in motion, the future extends
To feature the elsewhere of a current event

(yeah)
Stepping in
Skip a step
Kill you off
In your (own) trap

If you persist
Everyone dies
...everyone dies

Humans are on a death course, extinction awaits
This planetoid can be saved, extermi...nate

The balance is tilted, space turns absolute
Infinite repercussions to ruin the root

(yeah)
Stepping in
Skip a step
Kill you off
In your (own) trap

This is the feeling your logic defies,
if you persist everyone dies
Track Name: No Force is Half Felt
Now I’ve lost my voice, I’m left with
No choice
Now I’ve lost my voice
No choice

The only chance to get life aligned,
is to erase humankind
Erase it

You do not seem to have the springs
And you can not make any sense
You leave me only one recourse
violence

We will not waste one more day on this human lie
We will not waste one more day on your human lie
We will not waste one more day on this human lie

Erase it

We will not waste one more day on this human lie
We will not waste one more day on your human lie

Erase it

You do not seem to have the springs
And you can not make any sense
You leave me only one recourse
violence

No springs
No sense
One recourse
Violence

Erase it...
