Track Name: Cancer Media
There is no truth, just decades of lies
we all believe and people die
nowhere to turn, no one is pure
the realization there is no cure
humanity will always be the cancer
for which there is no fucking answer

everyone has their own agenda
a neverending stream of propaganda

when will you realise?

there is no truth, just decades of lies
we all believe and people die
if you’re not selling you’re being sold
swallow everything that you’re told
marching to the tune of humanity
never ending woes of insanity
the greatest lie they ever told
is that you’re not wearing a blindfold
layers & layers of misdirection
creating your total disconnection
to the world we really inhabit
blind to the entire media sabbat

humanity is the cancer
Track Name: Ivory Towers
not in my name
not in my name
not in my name
never in my fucking name

a trail of destruction has led us here
so let’s make one thing perfectly clear
your greed blinded you to the consequence

destruction is a horrid game
one you play with no, no fucking shame

not in my name
not in my name
not in my name
never in my fucking name

divide and conquer through the party lines
setting your foundations for the pipelines
to carry the blood money back home
leaving behind desert catacombs

no sons from ivory towers
will serve the western powers
no sons from ivory towers
will serve the western powers

not in my fucking name
we will never play your game
for taking the lives of the brave
we will despise you to the grave

mankind is led to the slaughter
like trying to swim with blood in the water
our heads pushed under the surface
by the bastards who deem us worthless

destruction is a horrific game
destruction and we know who to blame
Track Name: Helping Hand
indifference to the pain
not seeing the strain
a cold blanket of nothing
a lifetime of not trusting
“man I’m feeling weak”
isn’t the answer that you seek
is your own banality
too much of your personality?

the stigma blocks the (helping) hand
keeping your mind in the wasteland
if a stitch in time, saves nine
then we’re running out of time

broken bones and broken minds
how can we be so unkind?
empathy for one but not the other
how can man ignore his brother?
too many problems hidden inside
but the only way out isn’t suicide
pretend the problem isn’t there
pretend that we really do care

stick your head in the sand
leave someone else to understand
if people can’t talk about the problem
it eats away deep inside them

broken bones and broken minds
how can we be so unkind?
broken bones and a broken mankind
how can we be so blind?
how can we be so blind?

the mental health of your bothers
shouldn’t scare you like the others

open up to each other
open up to your brothers
Track Name: Endless Cycle
there’s a hidden strength inside that I could never possess
but you couldn’t have survived without anything less
I can’t imagine what you’ve been through
but after all this time you still stayed true
life has been trying to beat you down
but in my mind you still wear the crown

I see the tears and I feel the rage
sometimes it’s like you’re still stuck in that cage
the scars that have been left behind
are only festering in your mind
my thirst for vengeance will never end
just as your will, will never bend

there’s a hidden strength inside that I could never possess
but you couldn’t have survived without anything less

an endless cycle as old as mankind itself
an innate sickness perpetuating endlessly
for which there is no end in sight
despite how hard we fight

so we move forward together
strong like birds of a feather
