Track Name: Wasabi Hands
he be the one yes
peter piper picks the pawns
permanent injections filled
through innocent arms
the royal highness
that defines us
we’ve become sick of the charm
security!
fuck that shit
cause I wont make it t dawn
wasabi hands cut through
the medecine man
she slayed the duke
caught with the gun in her hand
quiet rinse she don’t think
she ruffles through thoughts
like paper , thin is that line she walks
but does it come at a cost?
and what has come before?
nothing but breadwinner history
matchstick merciless merry go round
till we top up, tap out resources
renewable energy tax
can’t mix vocabulary syntax
sit back get had with some new jack
as looped through convention
truths unprotected
no coverage no program
she slayed the duke
caught with the gun in her hand

Chorus:
that’s why I’m here, that’s why its done
that’s why I’m here, that’s why its done
the course was run, the web was spun
clench your teeth cause the battle begun
Track Name: Panopticon
What sentinals found
Dire deeds left on the ground
And what you took from your father’s throat
Above the door where the falcon boasts
Six more clepsydrae
We hunt the shadow and never count by nine
Track Name: Damonsta Titillates
Like mud to boots yes it sticks
What trickled down through lunatics
A severed ruse we’ve yet to fix
Empires built by the crucifix

In time I’ve seen things come to lite
And minds I’ve seen them gone dry
She comes

Illusions
Redirected
Through windows in the dark
No sun
No reason
Just push on through the door
