02: HOLLOW HEART

Allured by distant memory
I walk beyond the sky and mountains
It ceases to exist in me
But I won’t let it show
With this hollow heart

But we’ll keep on fighting to the end
Our truth is known
Can’t you see it’s human grown?
This comfort forms a wave that pulls me down
As the king waits for the crown
With this hollow heart

Dissolving in reality
It’s dark pool overflows
Keep the inner feelings down
But I won’t let it show
With this hollow heart
We’re nothing but fragments

And we’ll keep on fighting to the end
Our truth is known
Can’t you see it’s human grown?
This comfort forms a wave that pulls me down
As the king waits for the crown
I’ve been waiting just to feel the burst again
A feeling to contain In this hollow heart

 

 

03: THE CONVINCER

They watched you from afar
But close enough to taste
They saw everything that you did
That put you in this place

This hollow sun has set
Beneath a falling star
I wonder what you are

They tried to let you know
Afraid to leave the world below
Just show me who you are
Survive a sense of pride
Whether it’s laugh or cry
It’s showing what you are

Stage, rate, validate

Those wires should carry you
But they brought you to your knees
This fear is something new to you
A paradigm diseased

But could this be the new distraction?
To follow and obey
Endless we see that fear in your eyes
That there is no sweeter prize

One chance, one life
A helpless cry
For change, remove
The myth, the lie
You search, you seek
But cannot find
The buzz, the bite
It won’t be kind
What glitters doesn’t always shine
That little part of you is mine

And here tonight
No need to hide
Whether it’s laugh or cry
Just show me who you are

They tried to let you know
Afraid to leave the world below
Just show me who you are
Survive a sense of pride
Whether it’s laugh or cry
It’s showing what you are

Stage, rate, validate

 

 

07: PROXY

Mesmerised by hidden signs
We’re caught in the headlights
An instinct from within
Slips away, watch it ricochet
Through eyes of disarray
We’ve formed a second skin
Now modified, we multiply
Living to comply
New history begins

Overthrow
We’ve waited for this moment far too long
We are the threat to your position on the throne
This sedated world is now gripped by the throat
These parasites have been unleashed
And we’re the host

Are we free or is this a dream?
Ignoring distant screams
We’re seeking our desires
How the prey get led astray
Will we turn away
When our hearts are set on fire?
Pacified not purified
Our minds are tranquilised
Nothing will inspire

Overthrow
We’ve waited for this moment far too long
We are the threat to your position on the throne
This sedated world is now gripped by the throat
These parasites have been unleashed
And we’re the host
We are the host

Fear is just another dirty tool they use
To keep us all inside the lines they choose

Overthrow
We’ve waited for this moment far too long
We are the threat to your position on the throne
This sedated world is now gripped by the throat
These parasites have been unleashed
And we’re the host
