Safe In A Dream The land, it burns the second time People walk on blurred lines And they believe in eye for eye We’ll kill them off, then we can die Chorus: Safe in the dream Where faults can’t be seen The river, it flows The water, it knows It comes from the source The waves are the force The river, it flows The water, it knows Confusing what we want with need Believing that it isn’t greed The land is not ours to receive Mistakes removed from history Chorus repeat

The Last Mirage Wisdom can’t be found In a vacuum Changes can’t be made Without action Well where does it begin If you never delve within The past and the future will hold you in “With a shadow hanging over me I was living on the line And a sense of what was going to be Weighing heavy on my mind And the days that passed in front of me All familiar places gone And the people in the desert heat Holding mirrors to the sun” These are the strangest times These are the strangest times The past and the future will hold you in Wisdom can’t be found In a vacuum Changes can’t be made Without action These are the strangest times

Mother Machine Born in a time, leaving the soul behind Dealing with love and death On the internet Taken the beauty out of reality Tempting permanence In everything Can’t figure it out Got no self, got no way to connect Phone in the loo It’s a sign from the gods of the mind Could I just be? Well, could I just be? Chorus: The future will hold Society’s goal The trauma survives Live negative lives A curious mind It doesn’t have time For memory cries The body of lies Could I just be? Well, could I just be? Can’t figure it out Got no self, got no way to connect Could I be, be just me Take a dive from the ties of maternity Chorus repeat

Man-Made 03:53
Man-Made Sinking so low, but you don’t even know Being so closed, is anyone home There’s a channel you don’t receive You can tune in if you believe You gotta be Chorus: Man-made to play the game And burn the ones in your way It’s a sad state to live within The secret grows when it’s a sin ohhh Man-made to play the game And burn the ones in your way It’s a sad state to live within The secret grows when it’s a sin There’s a channel you don’t receive You can tune in if you believe There’s a way to a change Chorus repeat
6.
DISSONANT BEINGS When there is a being You cannot be You cannot see Minds caught in a trap Put out to grass No turning back Chorus: Giving a feeling To dissonant beings No-one perceiving We don’t have time Rational reasons Separate the kind It’s losing it’s meaning When it’s online Love, love engineers Abiding time, repressing fear Ten, ten thousand years Now we are here Nothing is clear Chorus repeat When it’s online Rational reason When it’s online Losing it’s meaning When it’s online
7.
Conditional Love Take a life and put it in the ground No reply, talking into the night Constant productivity Falling blind for fallacy Growth is good when meant to be Desire for different needs It’s older than we think To have or to become Reliant on industry Constant productivity Falling blind for fallacy Growth is good when meant to be Pati com pati com pati com pati com What’s the cost, if it will not return? Blame the loss for who is responsible What is here can’t always be What you have won’t make you free Love is the necessity

Six Months 03:07
SIX MONTHS It’s known when the enemy’s dancing Got no self! What have you when the labour pain’s starting Got no self! Fall asleep when the mind is outsmarting Got no self! Nothing left but the laid out grassing Got not self! No return from familial trancing Got no self! Got no depth of vision Falling through the trap doors every time (No no no no!) Which way is the human evolving Got no self! Mind is sold and the conscience is falling Got no self! Words of love but they’re losing their meaning Got no self! Man-made brain but believe it’s all natural Got no self! Plan retracts and reality shatters Got no self! I know my place in an Aging population Got no sense of being I’ll still be beginning at the end (No no no no no no!)
9.
Modernity 03:42
Modernity Modernity creates disease I’m on my knees And begging you to get me through Humanity forgot its needs Priorities And they take the self away Chorus: Can’t abide by the way of life Taken out, demoralised Try to shake you to make you fight But you just think in black and white Friends of yesterday, we betray In the beginning there was no reason Greed and ambition take me to the end Chorus repeat The age of descent There is no word for it 28 percent There is no place for it Conform and you forget There is no space for it I am a system of desires and satisfactions Constantly stimulated and directed By the economic machine
10.
Living Beings Pt.2 Your brain is being watched By those that you believe Your eyes are purchasing More than you can perceive Your heart is emptying By hurting those in need It will affect your mind Chorus: How do you live like that? When you know the fact Treat it like a game Where you dodge the blame The sun is burning But you welcome it with glee The air is toxic But you breathe it in for need Your day is working But you think that you are free It will affect your mind Chorus repeat
