Hypnagogia 04:18
Feels like I'm sleeping awake These feelings I just can't take These patterns of my mind Are just so hard to find I was told there's just one truth We only get one youth And just like static It's making me erratic This liminality Life is a simulation No rationality Life is a paradox Hypnagogia Hypnagogia My mind is full of doubt Lights coming in and out A face right beside my ear How much can I endure? The ceilings sinking in Don't know how far I've been Drowning in fakeness Screaming in wakefulness Arachnids on the wall A figure down the hall These demons I cant fake I think I'm dreaming awake This liminality Life is a simulation No rationality Life is a paradox Hypnagogia Hypnagogia

Medicated by the nectars of hell Inebriated mental carousel Another day, another affliction Dependency is causing friction A fickle potion solves my woes Any burden, double the dose Dive into the realm of bliss The warmth of the abyss The bottle's summons, I need to heed it's call My bittersweet love, a shot of alcohol A blurred line obscuring my reality I found my solace, INTOXICATION THERAPY! Failing to drown it out Never had a single doubt Contradicted in a world of doublethink Relief at the bottom of a drink This lack of self control Has lead me down this hole Not up to expectations Intemperance, my foundation The bottle's summons, I need to heed it's call My bittersweet love, a shot of alcohol A blurred line obscuring my reality I found my solace, INTOXICATION THERAPY! Perpetual inebriated state Just looking for a clean slate Intoxicant, my solution Overwhelmed by destitution The bottle's summons, I need to heed it's call My bittersweet love, a shot of alcohol A blurred line obscuring my reality I found my solace, INTOXICATION THERAPY

Day one, it's been a long run Carried from this haunted cell Blindfolded, only time will tell Stumble down a flight of stairs Completely unaware Of this nightmare yet to come EXPERIMENT! Drink from this warm and bitter cup I can't control my mind, feel like I'm giving up 77! Days of tortured mental war Psychotic visions are melting through the floor Losing my self in a spiralling unknown Nowhere to flee, nowhere to roam Fighting this pulse with no place left to turn Somewhere to run, somewhere to return Double dose, each new day This is my slanted fate Moulded into a new shell Slowly I start to find A method of my mind To escape this wretched hell Consumed in fear of the unknown Forever I will be alone 10 weeks of madness, in a waking dream I didn't have the will to scream Locked in a silent room Hoping this will end soon Corrupting thoughts implode my soul EXPERIMENT! Drink from this warm and bitter cup I can't control my mind, feel like I'm giving up 77! Days of tortured mental war Psychotic visions are melting through floor

Severed 04:20
Seemingly random chaos And no one to save us Lives intertwined The blind lead the blind Though we are all unique The truth is all we seek Each person affected All of us connected Cut one wire And start a fire Our minds were tethered But now we're severed Apologies for words unsaid And the lies that spread We all want fame Just with different names Cut one wire And start a fire Our minds were tethered But now we're severed 6 degrees of separation Each one in relation They're picking favourites And the rest are faceless

Ambushed by despondency Sever all dependency Bound by thoughts of dread Disbelief at the warhead Taken over by apparitions Institution after institution Mind's blank with no control You will never be whole NO COMMANDS, a puppet to your mind Pulling strings of all mankind Living in a hollow lie Not knowing what's on the inside Content within your dream Most of the world unseen Idiocy and belligerence You're a servant to your ignorance Unaware of the depths within your head Wandering mindless and brain dead In your world your eyes are blind Recidivist, a prisoner of the mind Vacant of humanity You're a slave to your philosophy Inside you is the danger Locked up with a stranger Everything is so bizarre You don't even know who you are A slave to your inner self No power, nothing else Chaos is reigning free In the dark to liberty. Unaware of the depths within your head Wandering mindless and brain dead In your world your eyes are blind Recidivist, a prisoner of the mind

Terror Serum 04:51
Troubled by living, just waiting for death Asphyxiated and in distress Being force fed terror from the box Every action is built upon these blocks Apprehensive of everything seen Too petrified to even try Fighting thoughts of what's to come Another statistic you become Complacent in your mediocrity Protected by your democracy Watching others successes unfold Another faint-hearted, panic-stricken mould Serving lies to control the masses Trepidation keeps you in place Showing truths to serve their purpose Convert your beliefs or be worthless Terror Serum Inoculate with cowardice Terror Serum Simpleminded in your bliss FEAR! Escape from the inside of your shell FEAR! Now it's too late to bid farewell FEAR! Paralyzed and motionless FEAR! Too far gone to reminisce One day you'll look back in regret Living life in a safety net See beyond all the fakeness Take the steps to reach for greatness They don't want you to prosper Don't listen to the noise Manifest your reality Don't be the next fatality Terror Serum Inoculated with cowardice Terror Serum Simpleminded in your bliss

Whitecoat 03:31
Strapped down in uncertainty All you were meant to be A lab rat who took our bait Experimental treatment is your fate You can't resist now it's too late Before your mind was useless Nothing to even live for Now you serve your fellow man Undying Soldiers, is the master plan Fighting under our command Whitecoat! He is coming after you Scapegoat! There is not much you can do Cut Throat! It's all for the greater good Whitecoat! This must all be understood I use to know no master My mind is getting hazy I should have just ran faster This is so fucking crazy To their will I'm bending My mind is almost numb For me this is the ending I only hear a hum I only hear a hum You can't control your thoughts, Freewill is non-existent Inflicted with so much pain So much lost, but there's so much to gain Injections straight into your brain. Whitecoat! He is coming after you Scapegoat! There is not much you can do Cut Throat! It's all for the greater good Whitecoat! This must all be understood

We are the shadows over your bed The whispers you thought you heard We are the fear you've always fed The noise makes you jump We're in the corner of your eye The visions you thought you saw Never ending unforgiving high A phantom residing in your walls SIHLOUETTES They've come to take you Turning you right into a curse OF HORROR You've got to break through Putting your fantasies in reverse We are the spectres in your hall The presence you thought you felt We're the ones who make your skin crawl Frozen in distress with eyes wide open SIHLOUETTES They've come to take you Turning you right into a curse OF HORROR You've got to break through Putting your fantasies in reverse Silhouettes of horror Silhouettes of horror

Infiltration, invading your mind's eye Allocation, arranging all your thoughts Cultivation, you will be made anew Infestation, identity will die Identity will die! The sandman takes his toll Eating at your soul Subjected to trials Your mind runs miles Forced for all mankind For whatever they can find Gonna send you for a fright Operation Midnight! Exploitation, manipulating dreams Captivation, colouring reason Domination, infecting you by night Aggravation, they want to hear your screams ANNEXED! TORMENTED! HAUNTED! INCURSION! Mutilation, bodies all around Desperation, escaping this nightmare Suffocation, surrounded by such fear Premonition, the future can be found The future can be found! The sandman takes his toll Eating at your soul Subjected to trials Your mind runs miles Forced for all mankind For whatever they can find Gonna send you for a fright Operation Midnight!

Pleonexia 06:59
Your face is melting in You see your greatest sin With great anxiety Reaching out to society Morphed into someone else Forming boundless wealth Lives have been lost It doesn't matter the cost Feeding off others pain An image you must maintain Reaching for more and more Avarice to the core Shielding you from the masses Genocide using gases You keep your purity Protect your security Pleonexia Cause and effect Pleonexia It's time to redirect Innocence has been shattered Fortune is all that matters Everything you desire Power is what your require Devoured by abundance Regardless of redundance Endless delectation At the expense of a nation Paranoid delusions Trust is an illusion Detached from sanity Dependent on your vanity Your ego must fall You disregard the call Listen to all my guidance There will be no more silence. Pleonexia Cause and effect Pleonexia It's time to redirect Pleonexia Dodge and deflect Pleonexia You can't even object Pleonexia

Half past twelve And I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone How I hate to spend the evening on my own Autumn winds Blowing outside my window as I look around the room And it makes me so depressed to see the gloom There's not a soul out there No one to hear my prayer Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight Take me through the darkness to the break of the day Movie stars Find the end of the rainbow with a fortune to win It's so different from the world I'm living in Tired of TV I open the window and I gaze into the night But there's nothing there to see no one in sight There's not a soul out there No one to hear my prayer Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight Take me through the darkness to the break of the day Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight Take me through the darkness to the break of the day There's not a soul out there No one to hear my prayer Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight Take me through the darkness to the break of the day Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight Take me through the darkness to the break of the day
