Track Name: Fixed Idea
Veritable Fools
Like fools in a madhouse
For the "fixed idea".
Which has subject itself
To "Man".

Faith, majesty, man
Law, morality. "Fixed ideas".

Fixed Ideas as ghosts
Spooks, abcess from reality.

To touch the fixed idea
Is to gaze into the madhouse
And to face the malace
Of such fools entrenched

By sacred beliefs
Fanatic in your prepossession, you are all cursed

Prepossesion... Imprisonment by thought
Like a mad man's delusion
Thoughts on firm footing.

Veritable Fools
Like fools in a madhouse
For the "fixed idea".
Which has subject itself
To "Man".
Fools.

(lay hands to the sacred)
Fixed ideas
(lay hands to the sacred)
Specters of Christian
(lay hands to the sacred)
Moral religion

Virtue, truth and spirit
Faith majesty man.
Law, Morality.
Fixed ideas.
Specters of Christian moral religion.
Enslaved..
Fucking slaves.
Track Name: State Terror
Proxy Wars / Death of thousands.
Who's the real terrorist?
Destabilize / Left to run.
Human life means nothing to them.

Invasion forces / Crippling foreign nations.
Policing their borders / Terror propaganda
Civilians to insurgence / Creating reasons to decimate.
Destabilize / Poverty creators.

Maintaining your supremacy through grotesque acts of violence.
Patronizing your actors through glorification of military action.

They teach you from an early age to equate monetary gain with the importance of human life. An important tactic in telling you when it's ok to hurt - and when to be hurt. The difference between Western Nations' invading forces and the backlash of the oppressed is they will tell what is truly evil.

Proxy wars / Choosing sides.
For corporate interest.
Violent backlash / Demonize.

Terror is the conquest of North America - unfathomable from the very start. From the colonization of the indigenous nations to the slave trade that built these countries. Terror is Murder and rape in Vietnam and death squads in Indonesia, wiping out any condition of thought incongruent with the capitalist agenda.

Bodies stacked high / Your cruel victory.
With god on your side / Set them free from tyranny.

With all the violence that they perpetrate, they define acts of terror as they see fit. As long as it creates social and economical divisions, to increase phobias contributing to the manipulation of peoples minds. Turning fears into targets.

Decimating culture / Separation of families.
Creation of slums / Policing their borders.
This is terrorism.

Designating individuals by ethnicity as the threat.
Profiling and immobilizing individuals using violence as an excuse.

Invasion forces (across the globe).
Creating decimation (it's all a lie).
Crippling nations (toppling regimes).
Destabilize (left to run).
Policing borders (fuck the police).
Poverty creators (know they're scum).
Terror propaganda (in your mind).
Civilians to insurgence (against imperialism).

Terror is woven in the fabric of North America.
Terror is their Imperialist expansion.
Terror is the violence it takes to maintain capitalism.

Connect the dots.
Between the lines.
Weed out the lies.
We know their face.
Track Name: Axiom
Intrinsic property rights - Axiom to the warship of capital

A delusion - Force fed delusion.
False understanding.

That all is forbidden to none, that man has a natural right to become proprietor by force.
An insane delusion, a lie for the capitalist individual
And subsequently any, justified as axiom to property and capital.

Axiom of capital - intrinsic property rights
And you pretend to believe.
So you can be free to squabble
In equal opportunity lust and subservience.

..Land becomes resource
Like the bodies of women
Culture of children
Labor of masses
Property - a colonial tool for control

Axiom of capital - intrinsic property rights
And you pretend to believe.
So you can be free to squabble
In equal opportunity lust and subservience.

You don't question, you don't argue.

That all is forbidden to none, that man has a natural right to become proprietor by force.
An insane delusion, a lie for the capitalist individual
And subsequently any, justified as axiom to property and capital.

Axiom of capital - intrinsic property rights
And you pretend to believe.
So you can be free to squabble
In equal opportunity lust and subservience.

Intrinsic property rights - Axiom to the worship of capital.
Track Name: Destruction
The latest in every day life invading technologies,
To be used and thrown away, children of the Congo are no priority.

Living in a consumer bubble, detracted by convenience and more comfortable with ignorance, we're so easy to please..

Mines controlled by military forces - 100,000 enslaved.
40,000 children - Is your technology worth this?
What we see is only a fraction - Of this technological addiction.
Our consumption - Others's destruction.

Working conditions creating rising death tolls
As suicide nets are bolted to the fucking walls
400,000 trapped in factory dormatories...

Spewing gallons of toxic waste, creating miles of toxic lakes.
Never shown this nature of civilization, our consumption - Others destruction.
Track Name: Geistlicher
The righteous clergymen of conscience and scripture
Internalizes and embodies the church in protest.

Born anew, dictating to self and gentile.
By direct interpretation.
Is there anymore intimate enslavement
Than to forsake the church for the holy book?

Cyclical engagement.
Self enslavement.
Birth of Protestantism.
Birth of Liberalism.

Holy becomes your own rebellion.
Consumed by saints and ghosts.
There is no more evil a clergyman
Than one's own mind filled with sacred words?

Nevermind your own.
Nevermore of your own.

Deliver us from from evil...

Born anew, dictating to self and gentile.
By direct interpretation.
Is there anymore intimate enslavement
Than to forsake the church for the holy book?

Cyclical engagement.
Self enslavement.
Birth of Protestantism.
Birth of Liberalism.
Track Name: Anxiety Culture
Expectations - like the never ending ball and chain of a society that Upholds patriarchy racism and destruction of the natural world.
Piled so high, rooted so deep, into the fibres of everything we do.
Everything we touch.
Everything we say.

Hollowed guts.
Binded nerves.
Frayed like a rope.
Shattered like shards of glass.
Organs in an acid bath.

Mind drenched in panic.
Body shred while torn.

Riddled with anxiety - implosion from back to front.
Trapped in mind. Trapped in soul.
In a cage - of bone and flesh. Restricted thoughts.
Get free - Be free. Constricted flesh,
Head against the wall... no no breath.

I don't want anything to do with this, I don't even want to passively take Part. There's a cop in every one of your heads, and bottles turn to Crutches in our hands. It's a constant struggle forced. We're lost as we Find our way.

Culturally inflicted, culturally maintained.
Anxiety culture - Maimed.
Culturally inflicted, culturally maintained.
Anxiety culture - Pervasive, ingrained.
Track Name: Striving on Sickness
Socially acceptable dependencies.
Crippling communities.
Not where you want to be.
Wondering if your hands are bound or free.

As depression is a constant weight
Brought a culture of fucked up injustices, and systematic poverty
Helplessness breeds in a moralist, capitalist society

But it's our wasted time, self worth and potential.
These things take their toll, physical and mental.

It's this cycle of dependency, that keeps us in cages.
Poor, overwhelmed and angry, with numerous chemical chases.

Striving on sickness helplessness breeds.
Organize, destroy.

Permissible addictions as if they like to pick and choose.
A socially acceptable way to escape the anxiety and pressure to find something to do.
And feed yourself as a wage slave, which is a reality they create.

This culture.
Is a constant weight.
There must be a better way..
A better way to shake..

This from -
My Mind -
Organize -
Destroy -

This system doesn't function off of healthy people
Making autonomous decisions for themselves .
This society strives on sickness, sick of heart, sick in mind
Fight this disease we're connected with everything.

If it destroys - Destroy it.
If it's violent - Take it out.
If it nurtures - Take care of it.
If it creates - Engage.
Track Name: Fumes
Fumes

Choking the old growth, the national forests.
Delicate waterways, ancient homes.
Millions of acres like air raid zones.

Fumes

Raining down glyphosate, rolling mists, through the forest.
Slash and burn, deeper through the forests.
Indigenous people displaced at the hands of state oppressors.
Class war casualties / Cocoa spraying programs exist to appease
United States drug war / And anti-communist sentiments.
Indigenous and settler dissent.
Carcinogens consume bodies causing sickness, miscarriage - plagued with toxins.

Indigenous people suffer for poisoned air and food sources,
From chemical sprays that decimate plant and animal systems.

Bullets fly from F.A.R.C. forces in retaliation.
Amidst depleted food sources, toxic plumes in the wind.

Careless, senseless, killer spraying.
Careless, senseless, gas attacks.

Bullets fly from F.A.R.C. and guerrilla forces in retaliation
Against the racist state sentiments that uphold and enforce the death gassings. "La Violencia" continues, sectarian conflict amidst a thick air of poison descending in Colombia.

Careless, senseless, killer spraying.
Careless, senseless, gas attacks.
Track Name: Vigilante
Vigilante
Your life is a sham..
Assist tyranny.. Mind of a pawn.
Too dull to ask why..
Why crime is a threat.
And who made the battlefield.

You think you're protecting people.
But you're trampling lives already beaten.
By poverty racism, and sexism.

People are robbed.
Of their lives every day.
Forced to work, forced to pay.
Forced to suffer so someone else gains.

You're part of the wall that separates people from their labor.
From their needs, and desires.
From what is taken from them.
To be commodified, and profited from.

Then you point a gun at them, and tell them that they're criminals.
Then you point a gun at them, and tell them that they're criminals.

Vigilante, your life is a sham.
Assist tyranny, mind of a pawn.
Too dull to ask why..
Why crime is a threat.
And who made the battlefield.
