In the beginning IT created the above and the below; 2 the all was nothing: nothing covered what was there, It and they were, CREATION OF NOTHING - 3 IT said"Control your controller, "and all were controlled and controlling. IT saw that they needed more. 4 IT gave man to they and they gave control. 5 Calling control a prophet, a son of a virgin of grey calling her son. 6 Then It said "You, They, control, follow the following." And so it was. 7They called man and man followed. 8 IT called they and they followed. A SPECIES MADE HUMAN. 9 IT said "Virgin of the clouds, mother of the ski give up your bastard to serve the server." And so this was done, and the creation of man made wiser by a king of the metal towers past the clouds. 10 IT said "show man NOTHING, but tame man." 11 "domesticate the man as I have domesticated you." 12 Enjoy freedom as I have shown IT." 13"Domesticate as I Have domesticated you." And so all was as NOTHING was domesticated.

Track Name: Nomad
Come into my shallow depth
wash your mind of everything
for every answer IT has a new question
my caliber of truth came from the trees
Rise, and the gate opens
Key your mind and so on IT rang
glide on wind, that pushes
the shadows and
"You speak in tongues, had me in your head
this is no question, no list of rules
you walk on my path, or fear my road"
I will rise from that watery grave
fall through arms of saviors not swallowed
the core of salvation
has been mistaken for prophet, profit rise
and tell the audience what has been won
Redeem the shadows - Human
city of angels - Demon
sea of mermen - Titan
your chariot awaits - Centurian
the dawn of man dawned man
Track Name: Regrow Again
It's so silent, I hear everything screaming
no on around
but there's so many people I'm seeing
so dark
your so alone, you want my pity
the grounds in ice, and there's the chair
the fields are alive, they're not like the skin
your dying breed pleasure, to regrow again
It's so silent, I hear everything screaming
no one around
but there's so many people I'm seeing
so dark
Track Name: Oven Throat
I see myself in front of me
burning with the trees
something wet won't let me die
I'm not strong enough to leave it all behind
please leave me to play
I see you in the trees
your skin is growing branches
we all know you can't communicate
the wire around your lips has rusted
you just ponder questions
words are tied up in your tongue
if the ground could carry us further
could you stay on and take root
could you manage the task
or would the supports collapse?
The supports would collapse.
Is it the price we pay for freedom
or the desire to have you own limbs
they're easily taken away
I've seen it, I'm the trees
I've seen it, and myself burn
it and myself burn, burn myself and I
Track Name: Cockroach Tree
The tree looked down at me
no words needed to be said
the horrible look upon its face
left me sobbing in an uncontrollable mess
IT's alive
IT's roots go far deeper than you or I
IT's controlled the highest class
IT gave me dreams of other times
burn with me friend
ITIs Alive
Feed upon me, may I cradle your egg
I have a place to nest
my soil your breeding ground
listen to me friend I will inherit the earth
roach duster, cockroach tree
spawn, root, rise above ground
My idea the Sun once said
My child, my shadow
Track Name: Brass Hookah
IT's so beautiful the destruction of the masses
and life is only taught and your taught to live
there's no blood only oil in the motor
watch with me the way everything stops
it happens everyday
and everyday resembles each other
you say I'm stuck but I see
you stuck looking through me
Track Name: Hide Away
Rotting on the inside
allowing the pain to please
I've gone nowhere to end up so far away
hide in shelter, the insides so cold
the outsides what's dark
Hide Away - the surface is pale
hold on to your vine
IT's what keeps you from hitting the ground
the inside is so infected
I see the outside wither
there's no need for nourishment
there's no open holes to feed
I've dried up I'm dying, I'm dead, I live
falling's what you make of it
ya, I've started my descent
the end will be there
just wait for the ground and watch
Track Name: Filter The Meat
Spread me disease
the growing must go on
life is reproduction
control your surroundings
Filter the meat
now after another victory
my mass grows larger
defenses grow stronger
but I'm somehow destroyed
Filter the meat
I embody everything, to infest and claim
the surroundings, slowly moving on
and claim your life, I am God
Track Name: Mental Sidewalk
When IT's all done
you'll find out you're the one
you'll slowly replace where you've been
and it's nowhere important
no there's no ending
buy your still following me
then I'll walk away, you'll notice
Track Name: Ten Pin
Magic feet, my ball, approach the pass
and watch them fall, watch the pins fall
Ten Pin, STRIKE!!
Track Name: Chains, Heroes & Angels
I'm the chains that I resisted
the moment will last forever and always has
The heroes dead, and you were the hero
and you are the chains
such tragedy and grief that has been exposed
We've learned so much
victory is the cornerstone
victory is the pulse.
What do you want, My rhythm is so thrown off
it's the pressure that controls our timing.
"the triumph of anything is through organization, if there were Angels I hope they are organized through the same lines as the mafia."
- Winston Niles Rumford -
Track Name: Crippled Box
Caught in-between, the handle won't move
never will open the door
never will conform
don't question my beliefs
can't stand to understand
what I see and hear won't move
I keep looking but you're always there
go on, why don't you hide from me
go hide, hide from me
you preach opinions to walls
all these truths seem so insane
and my head is full of cement
keep looking, you can't get in
go on, hide, go on, hide from me
I don't want to see
I close my eyes and your still there
where's the growth?
the door has no key
where's the key?
the key has no door
Track Name: The Last 5 Hours IT Rested in ITs Bed
The window lit up and the crow stayed hidden
the soul of yesterdays desperation sinks in bed today
you black beast frightening others away, Away, I've stayed put
share my static, play in my womb, temple the output, attached to a stick
Fairy-God-Goddess, the belt burns through, insects covering me, can't scratch the itch
or uncover IT
locked in comatose, I suppose I've talked with the Gods
Restrained to a chair, the visions I've had are far beyond words
cut from the pelvis up, the sensation chained me to the birds
light was so bright. I could of seen
the window lit up and the men stayed hidden
caught in clarity relying on another vision
you mechanical beast, take me away
