Track Name: Fore20
Fore20

Conscious then anxious for release
Embracing this regime
Routine of coming to and monging out
Rise and roll a sedative
Tranquillize to motivate x2
Half baked but just as competent

No concern is worth the burden
Pointless constitution
Why waste our time
Stressed by things we cant change x2
Illness manifesting from our mind to our physical being in time
Results...Not good!

Used as medication
Praised for thousands of years
Until profit in oil
Out weighed value in hemp

Afraid the truth will out
The proof apparent in poisoned eyes
We’re haunted by words unspoken
An institution of confusion? Symptoms of a weak mind.

Part of pale congregation, full of failed intentions
The residents of a faith
Where the priests get stoned to death
At this sermon of a damned distillery

Exhale another hymn of failure and fatigue
Sacrificing our braincells for poverty
Overlooking the inevitable,feel the bliss of ignorance
The pros and cons don't match up here...

The symptoms cognitive
Psychosomatic
Side effects waiting for you to find them
Or just drop it,
Kick back,
Spark one,
Focus on positives
Track Name: Deadline
Deadline

Time, granting us another crisis
Still persevering!
Our circumstance has a habit,
of being inconsistent.
Our dedication, being tested
Only makes us stronger

Helpless when we stood there,
hoping all the people don't notice
It's the best that could be done,
given our lack of practices

Why is it every time we have to meet a deadline
We have to face another obstacle,
Write another track, because a set list played to no-one
Is still worth writing!

Our progression,
Prevailed through times of pure upheaval
And its all that got us here in this instance
All the scrapes we've been through prove
We're here for the duration.

Determined to do something now that
we finally have found our feet
Driven past the process of elimination
Got a chance to keep it going

Conjuring up a formula
Trying to piece it together
Scratching my head profusely
Like I'm confined to long words
Thought too much getting cryptic
No idea what I'm getting at
Start from scratch or resuscitate?
Like the crowd even notice.

The problem we've found is
Blaggin, blaggin becomes part of the process
Whether you like it or not
Worse not to of attempted than to fail

Determined to do something now that
we finally have found our feet
Driven past the process of elimination
Got a chance to keep it going

The problem we've found is
Blaggin, blaggin becomes part of the process
Whether you like it or not
Worse not to of attempted than to fail x2

(Well we will see...)
(We learnt from the Deep-end)

Breaking the mould can tricky
Especially when you get in the trend of just winging it
Back in the day we just wrote about murder
and all conceived ways to survive the apocalypse
Confused statements
Feels better writing about something you care about,
No-one can relate to a zombie invasion

Breaking the mould can tricky
Especially when you get in the trend of just winging it
Back in the day we just wrote about slaughter
and all conceived ways to survive the apocalypse
Confused statements
Feels better to write about something you care about,
No-one can relate to a zombie invasion
Track Name: Tunabhuna
Tuna Bhuna

Leave behind false pre-conceptions
Cast aside, grave implications
Lay to rest this propaganda
Grasp clarity in Technicolor
Forget the stigma x2

Our senses detect near to nothing
Black and white plagues
Expansion of conscious awareness of self
The holographic process taken
Behind locked doors
Keeps us looking outside of ourselves

We bare false witness, a vivid projection,
The ceiling my canvas.
Distorted dimensions show our manufactured habitat
As nothing, more than a persistent illusion

Choose your poison
Repeat the mantra of,
We only we live once.
This Herbal Lobotomy
Keeps us coming back to a thought provoking
atmosphere beyond the five sense reality x 2

You'll survey a hallowed plane
Dragged out
Fast track to the grave
through the gates of the asylum
Sectioned to a confined space
Spiralled down
Fast track to the grave
Through the gates of the asylum

Don't rise to fear tactics of consensus
No advice is concrete
Pass your judgement from experience and not preconceived ideas
No advice is concrete
Pass your judgement from experience and not preconceived ideas

Your internal dialogue prohibits you from unique thought,
Your eyes cemented, the puppet strings dictate your movement
Our consciousness has been restrained
By the elite in power that feeds off our misery
They've got a problem,
When the sheeple draw their own conclusions
Face the hard truth, we're not your slaves

The canvas unfolding in to a molecular state,
Textures forming the obscene
This toxic euphoric,
Keeps us coming back to this thought provoking
atmosphere beyond the 5 sense reality.x2

We cant grasp our potential
With our heads clouded in calumny
Unrelenting effort to sensor
Every substance that could open up our prospects
Or decode our purpose

Leave behind false pre-conceptions
Cast aside, grave implications
Lay to rest this propaganda
Grasp clarity in Technicolor
Forget the stigma x2

Our senses detect near to nothing
Black and white plagues
Expansion of conscious awareness of self
The holographic process taken
Behind locked doors
Track Name: Conscious Altered
Conscious Altered

Cant see what's under our nose
We're too preoccupied
The distractions that plague current life
Keep us from stepping out of line
To confine

Fear is what they want, keep us too busy
Constant burden of the times getting worse
It's not hard to see, why we think the same
All of our news comes from the same sources

Conscious altered
Writhing, Flesh boiling under your skin
Can't Stop from screaming
Wake up you fucks
Just ONCE
Get off your knee's
FUCK
Even at the top of my lungs it's still all in vein,
Most dismiss effects of fluoride and aspartame.

USELESS PROCESS
NO POINT
PREACHING TO THE DEAF
FUTILE EFFORT
Give up.

Watch as our liberties fall...

A Conflict of interest
See's the powerful dominating all
Our immunity starts with awareness of all those involved
Our awareness need not be preached or physically displayed
Just acknowledge the state of affairs is not how its portrayed

We're all born with tunnel vision
It's our choice to eat up what's been put before us
Enslaved
If life's not a dress rehearsal
We've got one chance, make a choice, to lift the veil,
You decide.
Track Name: House of Cards
House of Cards

The modern world is infected
With an obsession for paper produced in a factory
Before the last century, it at least retained value
Notes exchanged for its weight in gold
Until the day central banks called for a gold amnesty
The greatest theft in American history
Legal tender was all they got in return
Debt manifesting with all of us burnt

Then maintaining the masses in a state of oppression
Crumbling under retail monstrosities
To cripple the small fry
Then recruiting, in masses
To have us climb their ladder
Not forge our own
Out the way of decision makers
We’re modern day slaves and no one’s complaining
We trudge the path
Paved in boardrooms, at the top of the pyramid
With an eye on all of us
Drowning in the tide of false promises that
broadcast as truth
Existing to give strength to a house of cards

Why does cash flow dictate our lives?
We gauge our success what we've gained externally
Though emotion felt before the birth of currency
Wisdom known to our predecessors
Kept out of sight through knowledge filtration

The word on the street,
Is their view in your head.
That we’re being force fed,
Through the mainstream media

The promise of security has our arms outreached
Poised for vaccines or chips that do more than confirm our identity
Documented proof that could change the way that people think
Hazardous to those in driving seats for the new world
Wondering what "terror" awaits us in the coming years
The last decade a showcase of what to expect.
Keep an open mind as things aren't always as they’re sold
Who knows what will asked of us in the time leading to 2012
Fuck ‘em
Track Name: OD
OD

Waking up to roll a large one, still laughing from the night before.
We've drunk too much, need some munch, get the Rustlers and Rockstar from Best One.
My head is pounding, vision hazy the whole world can see I'm lean
The least of our problems, if my house-mates had woke up and seen
The aftermath, our path of carnage, everywhere
There's various stains on walls and burn holes from flairs, in carpets on stairs.
Half drunk tinnies, littered like skittles, shit from the ashtray, literally spilt.
The air is thick from the wasteland of half dead corpses
Blitz the lot, and leave no trace of our existence
The perfect crime..Where the culprits are the victims

Piece by piece it all comes back,
The clues crop up and paint the scene
Fragments of the night distorted in my memory,
Trying to connect all the dots leading up until the black spots
Just finding empty space, the guilt sets in...

Once again we shake it off
We blaze some stink and blast some tunes
There's not much you can do when your hanging out your arse
What's the point stressing today about tomorrows obligations
Dread wont tilt the scales into your favour

Throwing up blood for three days with a mouth like a rusty socket set
Two black eyes, my skin turned yellow, a foot that's swollen and purple.
It could be time to consider we're, bordering excessiveness!

Save your sympathy for me, i know exactly how i got here.
The whole night night was fuckin epic!
Munching bars of mushrooms with Ren and Stimpy!
Gut-pains from laughing,witnessing everything in a new light.

You know that there's something that I wanna say
but when I'm baked I struggle how to word it
(You can't see past my redeye, I know you fucking judge me)
I've found most things are all right to try in moderation.
But its not for everyone, don't get caught out, know your limits.

Heavy show last night with the South-East party crew in full effect
We find our way to return to the scene of the crime,
Only to find that the whole place had come back to life.
Life

My head feels like a hammered shit, my vision fucked.
Stomach like glass shards protruding organs.
Commence the walk of shame, surviving with no sleep.
Spirits high though our bodies beat.
