Track Name: No Broken Circles
NO BROKEN CIRCLES

HATE TO INTERRUPT ANOTHER PLEASANT SUNDAY
PISSING ON MY BONES
BY NOW IT FEELS LIKE HOME
A GRINDING, BANAL DISDAIN
SO COMMONPLACE
WHEN YOU SOMEHOW HAVE IT ALL
BUT NONE OF IT IS YOURS

PRIVILEGED WITH THE SICKEST FICTION
SLIT TRENCH TO CUL DE SAC
HOLOCAUST AT THE HEART OF A NATION
A PREMISE PROCEEDS
SEE YOURSELF IN THE GRAND TRADITION
WITHOUT THOSE ENDS, NO MEANS
FORCED MARCH OF CIVILIZATION
ROVING DISEASE
CALL IT AMERICA
FUCK YOUR CLAIM

MY BANE
HIS GOD SAID ALL WAS HIS TO TAKE
STILL RIDING TOWARDS THE SETTING SUN
500 YEARS ON
ALL ABSOLVED
BY HIS INTREPID GUILE AND CROSS
WHAT HAS BEGUN
FREE CHILDREN OF EARTH?

HATE TO INTERRUPT ANOTHER USELESS TUESDAY
SQUATTING IN MY HOME
THIS MUST BE UNDONE…

OVERDUE ESSENTIAL COLLISION
WRAITHS COMING HOME TO ROOST
REBORN TO PROCLAIM GOOD RIDDANCE
BY ANY MEANS
TO BE WHOLE, NO BROKEN CIRCLES
WE SHALL BE OURS ONCE MORE
ONE CURE FOR CIVILIZATION’S
ROVING DISEASE
CALL IT AMERICA
FUCK YOUR CLAIM
MY BANE
Track Name: Troy
TROY

FIVE DENIALS DEEP
ALL OUT OF DAYS
TWO DECADES BLEEDING BLUE
SOMEWHERE RED STILL WALKS THE STREETS
AS LONG AS ONE OF “US” PAYS
INNOCENCE WON’T MEET REQUIREMENTS FOR STAY

I AM TROY
I AM FOREVER
NO GEORGIA LYNCH MOB CAN SILENCE ME
THROUGH MY BRETHREN
I’LL ALWAYS BREATHE

FOR ALL THE TORTURE, AND FORMALITY
FIFTY FEET IS ALL THAT REMAINS FOR ME
TIE ME TO YOUR TILTED SCALES
ONCE CONDEMNED
NOT FORSAKEN
NO DEATH CHAMBER DOCTOR
CAN DO ME HARM
IT MATTERS NOT
WHETHER YOU LOOSE THE CHAINS
TAKE YOUR VENGEANCE
WASH YOUR HANDS
BUT KNOW THE ARC OF THE UNIVERSE
BENDS TOWARD ME

I AM TROY
I AM FOREVER
NO GEORGIA LYNCH MOB CAN SILENCE
THROUGH MY BRETHREN
I’LL ALWAYS BREATHE

IT’S BEGUN
SINKING IN
IT’S BEGUN
TIME OF DEATH 11:08
Track Name: Burning House Evacuee
BURNING HOUSE EVACUEE

HOW MANY FRACTURED OATHS
BEFORE YOU DISAVOW
FALSE MESSIAHS
AND THEIR BODY COUNTS
RITUAL CHARADE
CONSENT LEGITIMATES
EVERY DEAD FOREVER
SANCTIFIED AS YOU
BEG
PULL ME TO MY KNEES
AS IRON DYNASTIES REIGN
BEG
CEDE YOUR AUTHORITY
AS ALL THESE LESSER EVILS
DEVOUR YOUR FAITH
TO BE COUNTED
BETRAYER BETRAYED
KEEP THAT CONSCIENCE CLEAN
REGALING COWARDICE
IN MORAL WITNESS
TRUST YOUR BETTER ANGELS
WITH THIS LEVIATHAN
CLING TO THOSE BALLOTS
PHANTOM PROGRESS
SO VERY RIGHTEOUS
TO SOLEMNLY
BEG
PULL ME TO MY KNEES
AS IRON DYNASTIES REIGN
BEG
CEDE YOUR AUTHORITY
AS ALL THESE LESSER EVILS
DEVOUR YOUR FAITH
NO CHOICE
NO COMPLIANCE
GOTTA GET OUT OF THIS BURNING HOUSE
TO BE COUNTED
I CAN’T SHAKE YOU AWAKE
BETRAYER BETRAYED
FOR SOME SLACK IN THE LEASH
YOUR BEST BEHAVIOR
A GESTURE ERASED
Track Name: Terminal Stasis
TERMINAL STASIS

THESE MACHINES ASK
WE JUSTIFY THE WAVE
STAKE OUT ON THE GROUND THEY CHOOSE
SO IF WE TRESPASS, THEY CAN SHOOT
IN ONE MORE SHOW
ONE MORE SHOW OF FORCE
THE ONLY LANGUAGE THAT YOU USE
ARE WE NOT CLEAR ENOUGH?
YOU CANNOT MEET OUR DEMANDS
IT IS YOU, WHO ARE NOT WELCOME HERE
DUE COURSE IS TERMINAL
WE MUST LAST
FROM THE MEEKEST EMBERS
FROM ASMAA’S MOUTH TO OURS
WE THE VAST REMAINDER HERE CONVERGE
TO ECHO THROUGH YOUR RUINS
’TIL THE LEDGES FILL WITH BULLS
SOARING TO COLLAPSE
YOU SOLD THE FLOOR
IN ONE MORE SHOW
ONE MORE SHOW OF FORCE
RECLAIMING GRAVITY’S RETURN AS OURS
ORDERS WON’T STEM THE SWELL
NO POWER CAN FREE OUR HANDS
WE’LL EAT THE RATS OUR CIRCUMSTANCE COMMANDS
DUE COURSE IS TERMINAL
WE MUST LAST, HOLD THIS LAND
OUR PICKET PINS ARE IN
ABANDON SHIP!
YOU’RE SURROUNDED
Track Name: Business
BUSINESS

THIS ISN’T SOME KIND OF COMMON WARFARE
NOT TO BE KNOWN TO SLAVES
CLEAN YOUR PLATES
BLESSED WITH THE PRECIPICE
SURVIVE MY NEEDS
EVERY PRESCRIPTION A POISONED PILL
DON’T GIVE A SHIT HOW IT TASTES

YOUR BED IS MADE
YOUR BED IS MADE

THESE FRUITS OF FAMINE
FOR OUR CONSENSUS FEAST
OH, WHAT A BURDEN, THE LUXURY
TO PICK YOUR CARCASS CLEAN

NOBLESSE OBLIGE
NOBLESSE OBLIGE

JACKALS FOUND THEIR WAY BACK HOME
TAKING OVER NEIGHBORHOODS
THIS HUNGER BUILT
PREDATORS, COMING FOR THE SPOILS
WOULD YOU BE SO SHOCKED TO LEARN
“WE” DID NOT MEAN “YOU”?

YOUR SHARE, THE SACRIFICE
YE LAMBS TO GOATS
PULLING TIGHT THE BOOTSTRAPS
‘ROUND YOUR THROATS

THIS ISN’T SOME KIND OF COMMON WARFARE
NOT TO BE KNOWN TO SLAVES
CLEAN YOUR PLATES
YOUR FUTURE
I’LL TELL YOU WHAT IT’S WORTH
EVERY PENNY THAT WE TOOK
THAT’S AN INDUSTRY JOKE

LIVING THE DREAM
LIVING THE DREAM
LIVING YOUR DREAMS
NOBLESSE OBLIGE
Track Name: Runoff
RUNOFF
AS IF YOU WE’REN’T ENOUGH, I’M REMINDED
IN THESE LAYERS OF FILTH
SO COLD
AS OLD AS YOUR KIND IS
NEVER STILL, NEVER
CONSTANT MOTION
FROM THE FORCE OF THE DRIP
PRESSURE
PURPOSE
KEEPS THE CURRENT
THE CURRENCY FED
WASTED
HUMAN
WE NEVER MEAN ANY HARM
BUT IT HAS ITS REWARDS
PAIN SO NUMBED OUR SHAME
STRIPPING THE THREADS BETWEEN
HAVE YOU SEEN ME LATELY?
IF YOU COULD I’D HOPE YOU’D PUSH ME AWAY
OH FEELING, IF YOU JUST COULD REACH ME
DON’T THINK YOU’D LIKE WHAT YOU’D SEE
WANT
NEED
TAKE
HUMAN
HOW LONG CAN IT GO ON?
IF IT MUST?
I CAN’T MUSTER REMORSE
HAVE YOU SEEN ME LATELY?
IF YOU COULD I’D HOPE YOU’D PUSH ME AWAY
OH FEELING, IF YOU JUST COULD REACH ME
DON’T THINK YOU’D LIKE WHAT YOU’D SEE
NEAR WARN OUT ALL MY CHANCES
HERE BETWEEN WHAT GROWS, AND THE PAVED
RUNOFF JUST KEEPS ME THIRSTING
STAINED
STILL SEARCHING FOR FATE
DON’T REMIND ME
Track Name: Scars Of Oblivion
SCARS OF OBLIVION

GUVERNO MENTIS
SLAUGHTER OF SENSES
SACCHRINE SUGGESTION
BLARING “SUBMIT”
INTERLOCKING MATRIXES
PURE NON-REALITY
BEAMING PRISMS
WOVEN AROUND OUR BAITED BRAINS

SOMEWHERE DEEP
STIRS DISBELIEF
MEANING PLEAS
THROUGH THE FLOODS OF BLOODY MEAT
DEVOLVED IN DICTUM
THE GUARDIANS HAVE LEARNED
A VOID NO GLUT CAN FILL
BATHED IN THE TROUGH
OF OBLIVION

KNOW THYSELF
GUINEA PIG
RETURNING CUSTOMERS
PASSIVELY RECEIVE
GOD’S LITTLE BUYING PATTERNS
MUSTN’T PERCEIVE
THEMSELVES THE PRODUCT
MOLDED TO TAME

BURIED DEEP
YEARNS DISBELIEF
SWALLOWED WHOLE
IN THE FLOODS OF BLOODY MEAT
IMMERSED, AND FLAILING
FIENDING FOR THE TASTE
COLLAPSE AS SPECTACLE
IT IS COMPLETE

COUNT ME THESE SCARS
I’LL TAKE THEM WITH ME
FUEL FOR THEIR BLITZING BE DAMNED
BLACK AS THIS ART’S
GRANDEST ILLUSIONS
DROOLING TO GORGE ON THE FEED
THE NOTHING IT BREEDS
NO WHY, OR REASON TO BE
FEELS SO NORMAL JUST TO NOD ALONG
WITH OBLIVION
Track Name: PaperSkinBars
PAPERSKINBARS

NEW ECONOMY, SAME TRANSACTION
IMMISERATION AS MARKET SOLUTION
EMANCIPATION’S ILLUSION EXPOSED
IN FINE PRINT, 3/5 OF THE WHOLE
AT THE ROOT
UNDER COLOR OF LAW
WHITE WAR
PAPER, SKIN, AND BARS
PROFITS HEMORRHAGING
PLANTATION BOOMS
OVERSEER REQUIRES RAW MATERIALS
FOR HIS PERFECT DOMINION
UNHOODED DEATH SQUADS
PIGS ON THE HUNT
IN A POST-RACIAL FABLE’S DISEASE
ROUNDING UP RUNAWAYS BACK INTO BONDAGE
IS THE HEALTH OF THE STATE
UNDER COLOR OF LAW
PAPER, SKIN, AND BARS
JUSTICE CAN’T CLAIM OUR BROTHERS AS PROPERTY
NOTHING CAN REMAIN
AS IT IS…
Track Name: All Tomorrow's Plunder
ALL TOMORROW’S PLUNDER

STUCK IN THE IMMEDIATE THROWS OF DEMAND
PURPLE MOUNTAINS, BEHEADED TO THE LAST
BODIES GUSHING, DOOMING EVERYTHING DOWNSTREAM
BEDROCK IS BROKEN
THE WATER’S BURNING
DRINK
PUKE UP SOME EULOGY TO EVERYTHING YOU DECIMATE
THROUGH THE DEADZONES
BARCODED GENOMES
CRACKS IN THE REACTORS
HIGH TIDE TO THE ROOF
THE CARNAGE OF THE BOARDROOM
NURTURING THE NATURE OUT OF YOU
ONE DAY AT A TIME
BUYING THE TOMB OF PARADISE
SURF’S UP
PACIFIC CRASH
ACID GILLS GIVE OUT
WHERE WE WERE SPAWNED
BEACHES ARE OPEN
SUSTAINER DOESN’T SET IN THE WEST ANYMORE
A CRUEL JOKE THIS MIRACLE
NUCLEAR DAWN
FIVE TRILLION YEARS OF FUN IN THE SUN
NEW HORIZONS BE GONE
THEY CAN’T SAVE A SOUL
I CAN’T FIND A CHORUS IN MOURNING THE LOST
HOW MUCH DO YOU COST?
Track Name: True Targets
TRUE TARGETS

IT’S HERE…
FIVE-EYED PANOPTICON
ALL SPHERES ENSNARED
SHADOW GESTAPO STORMING
THROUGH OUR FUCKING HEADS
SCANNING FOR CONTRABAND
SEEDS OF DEFIANCE
GERMINATING INTO CLEAR AND PRESENT THREATS
DO YOU FEEL SAFE YET,
TRAGIC PATRIOT?
THE GENERALS LOVE THE WAY
YOU TOUCH YOUR TOES
FEALTY’S PURCHASE, TOTAL SUSPICION
WITHOUT WHICH NONE OF US ARE FREE…

THE LAST OF THE EAGLES ARE SILENCED, AND CAGED
LIKE SEDITIOUS EQUATIONS OF INNOCENT DAYS
COUNTLESS BLACK BAGS AWAIT
ALL ACTS OF WILL DISRUPTING POWER’S
ABSOLUTE MOMENTUM TAKING
EVERYTHING
TRUE TARGETS

WITNESS…SPRAWLING…
THE SINGLE GREATEST WEAPON EVER TURNED ON BEING
BUILT ON PILLARS LAID TO WASTE
LIBERTY GUTTED
HERE SHE LAY
TRUTH IN MOURNING HER DYING DAY
HONOR’S SENTENCE
KNOWS NO END
BASTARD COURAGE
SNUFFED OUT IN THE GRID
AND FOR YOUR FEALTY, TOTAL SUSPICION
WITHOUT WHICH NONE OF US ARE FREE

HEAR THE LAST OF THE EAGLES SING
LIKE SEDITIOUS EQUATIONS OF INNOCENT DAYS
ETERNAL CROSSHAIRS AWAIT
ALL ACTS OF WILL DISRUPTING POWER’S
ABSOLUTE MOMENTUM TAKING…
EVERYTHING…
TRUE TARGETS

WHILE WE STILL
HAVE OUR WHISPERS
THESE PRECIOUS INCHES TO SCREAM
TELL ME WHAT YOU HOLD MOST DEAR
IF YOU’RE NOT AFRAID
IT ALL HANGS IN THE BALANCE
TRUE TARGETS
