Track Name: Culture
I'm a counter culture warrior, bathing in euphoria
and I can see the war in ya, it's constantly absorbing ya
Arm yourself and prepare for preemptive action
Line 'em up and cut 'em down, turning thoughts into fractions
Wash your soul and cleanse me freely
Possessed, entombed, intrepid men
Hallowing grounds they can't defend
Distressed, unmoved, decrepit men
Harrowing sounds they must pretend
We may step from our body to meet our own minds
Redefine, stripped clean, ever so inviting
Culture is our operating system
the sense of it has gone missing

(A great thinker once said, "Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not truth."
That thought helps solidify the idea that the current state of our conscious thoughts and beliefs are stagnant; sort of like an informational purgatory.
Our imaginations are package and sold, by guiding mechanisms and power structures.
We've been determined to be submissive by design and accepting of persuasive implementations.
This existence we lead, limits expansion, negates discovery, and cowers to plausible deviation. Navigating an infrastructure that actively disables the ammo of free thinkers and silences the dreams of an awakening.
We must learn to utilize our powerful minds.)

They will not save you
This is consistency
They will not save you
Entombed by dependency
The fraud in our system must be diminished
We've seen in our system there's much left unfinished
Track Name: Prey
The prose of paranoia poses as a pandemic
Demons pull on my heartstrings
fate operated the gears of my brain
arrogance empowers brain dead beings
they won't let me rest until I'm field dressed in vein
Battery acid pumps through every muscle
Here's your chance to reduce this empire to rubble
Gathering senses as I make it to the huddle
If it's up to them my eradication will be subtle
Pitchforks and torches illuminate the night sky
Hordes of death follow the trail of every lie
They're on my tracks and fate won't be denied
I'll be lucky if I make it out of this one alive
A steadfast predator turned to fleeing prey
Crossing lines of encroachment paybacks met us for the day
The hunted are those with a guilty conscience
The hunted we are awaiting are life sentence
Karma just laughs as he plans his vengeance
Karma fucks life like his mistress
Track Name: Institutionalized
Roll out the red carpet for the star playing himself
This is, this is about to get interesting
So this is all that they have come to expect of me?
It's become obvious that they are no longer respecting me
A bunch of pseudo doctors surround and start inspecting
The rush of social status continues infecting me
This mantra savors defeat and offers ample in return
Organized strikes on the willing, who just sit and wait their turn
I've been letting this ghost haunt me freely
Flicking an on/off switch with my sanity
Torn apart as I'm stretched to my limits
My mind's given up, my mind's lost it's faith in me
I'm losing feeling in the feelings my feelings feel
This is yours, this is yours to claim
This is your snake pit of a fucking daydream
Look into the eyes of the recluse
The allure gets stronger no matter how hard you refuse
Kiss the fangs just to see if they'll strike
Entangled further in the web the harder you fight
So is this all they've come to expect of me?
Mystery be damned they'll prop me up and dissect me
Prodded like cattle amidst the herd
I can feel them directing me
So this is all that they have come to expect of me
Mystery be damned they'll prop me up and dissect me
Prodded like cattle I can feel them direct me
Alone in my conscience where only I can neglect thee
This mantra savors defeat and offers ample in return
Organized strikes on the willing, who just sit and wait their turn
I've been letting this ghost haunt me freely
Flicking an on/off switch with my sanity
I've been letting this ghost haunt me freely
Flicking an on/off switch with my sanity
Torn apart as I'm stretched to my limits
My mind's given up, my mind's lost it's faith in me
I'm losing feeling in the feelings my feelings feel
Track Name: Resurgence
Consummate prisoners with a refusal to be restrained
Fracturing the convenient that's built to contain
(Developing a framework of tolerance)
Developing a framework of tolerance
That evolves into airwaves dominance
Creating a foundation of incisions
An operation against he who may listen
Let us break into your mind, don't buy that it's all ego
They'll sell you on our limitations, making us into their scapegoats
A fury of ammunition, now we must find the targets
In a scene of mediocrity we'll amputate the artists
We've got everything you want right here
Sent to make all of this confusion clear
So now that you're listening
Direct your attention to what you've been missing
I'm one of a kind in this flock I travel
Those who surround say they saw me unravel
Their so-called advice is just more babel
So I take it over with my six shooter and saddle
We're not dead, yet
Don't plant your roses
We're not dead yet
If we're dead then this world is filled with zombies
Inertias taken place and now there's no stopping
This is what you've asked for now you must remove your bias
and lay witness to an active takeover
