Confidence at an all time low And I fear this beast will start to grow Am I big enough to let it go? Or sink inside the endless flow It’s the savage and the Soma That rattles round my brain It’s the Punishment of luxury, I’ll steal myself again. Arrogance is ego time I’m going to start the savage cull Face the void I can’t avoid, The storm before the lull It’s the savage and the Soma That rattles round my brain It’s the Punishment of luxury, I’ll steal myself again. You’re building on the sands of time The Soma and the savage lies Don’t try to overwhelm us The sun is sure to rise. Master minders working hard On primal human prey Testing never resting Destroying day by day All our fights for freedom Are getting in their way Their marching band agenda Will turn our green to grey They flicker like an old T.V. You see them everyday They spin the moral compass And send you on your way They can’t control the chaos They dumb the planet down Our hope will not be broken I’m gonna steal the crown gonna steal the crown You’re building on the sands of time The Soma and the savage lies Don’t try to overwhelm us The sun is sure to rise. You’re building on the sands of time The Soma and the savage lies Don’t try to overwhelm us The sun is sure to rise. You’re building on the sands of time The Soma and the savage lies Don’t try to overwhelm us The sun is sure to rise.

Own this 03:12
My head was stuffed with nonsense it almost broke my mind Tired of your excuses on and on you grind I’m not this rising tide and anguish has no pride Fixing broken wings and burning up inside I sit alone in crowd’s chemicals and clouds Blinded by the noises deafened by the voices I’m driven by compassion that you don’t understand My energy is endless I’m gonna make a stand Programmed my mind and washed my own brain I’m circling the drain, again and again. I’ve been to your mountain I drank from the fountain The fourth wall is broken, the prophet has spoken. I drank from the source, I built a new road. The dark horse I ride on deciphered the code You’re calling me crazy but up I will rise Nothing can stop me from reaching the prize. Oppression an obsession Ignoring your call Regression is your weapon You can’t own it all Not another Sparta, not another Rome No more repetition we are coming home Home from your war your famine and hate Sick of your greed not taking the bait Charged up and ready, steady my aim Care full not care less the name of my game Repealing with passion your dog eat dog rules I’ve said it before, I wont follow fools. Oppression an obsession Ignoring your call Regression is your weapon You can’t own it all

Someone’s selling me something To make me change again Told me I’d be better off with The pleasure and the pain Just another ponzi scheme Make me drop the dream I’m trying to make a difference You’re calling me extreme You know that you can hurt me Yet you keep on keeping on Change comes from within Sing a different song You want this life of conflict Know I just don’t care Kick me when I’m down again More than I can bare Get the latest version Better than the last See into the future Looking at the past Sell me something worth it Nail me to the mast Stuck inside your nightmare Spinning way too fast Your spiral has gone viral Your spin is just a lie You blame the game You chose to play And I’m supposed to cry? Now I’m at the crossroad Time to roll the dice Light me like a candle Not a sacrifice I’ll never be your savior You will not be mine Try a different flavor Write another line Close my eyes to see you All inside my mind Got a better version Can I be mankind?

Data mining through the past To make this crystal ball Predictions are restrictions Now you see it all A.I. saw you through the mire, When your world was set afire Did you know me from the start? Broken robot, shopping cart. Quantum Entangled You’re stuck in my head Reeling you in And I’m losing the thread ‘Cos time and not man Will kill me instead Am I fooling myself By exploring the dread? A.I. know you Witch came first White as snow And fit to burst Echo said, do it clean, do it clean, Do it clean, will you ever be clean? Named and shamed Are you framing this scene? If you fake it and make it Are you killing the dream? Been here before The futures a guess Rinse and repeat now For more of the stress Deep inside me Is a terrible mess You’re real artificial You’re faking success A.I. know you Witch came first White as snow And fit to burst Echo said, do it clean, do it clean, Do it clean, will you ever be clean? Named and shamed Are you framing this scene? If you fake it and make it Are you killing the dream? Echo said, do it clean, do it clean, Do it clean, will you ever be clean? Named and shamed Are you framing this scene? If you fake it and make it Are you killing the dream? Are you killing the dream?

The range of my emotions blur I make no sense at all I hurt myself to help you I’m heading for a fall You say you want my truth again You wanted me to try The thought police protected you So you could live that lie There’s no escape you tell me You’re standing loud and proud Committed to the party line You’re playing to the crowd I thought you would betray me Yet love can make you blind I could not stop that nagging doubt From running through my mind I’m not your Big Brother I’m not your saving grace I see you as the stranger A voice without a face You’re lost within this matrix The dreams are all too real The voice is loud within me It tells me how to feel It tells me what to feel Now the trial is over Now the trial is over I can feel the rising pain I lost my sight, this can’t be right Are you still inside my brain Lost and found, sense and sound. Lost and found, Lost and found, Lost and found, Sense and Sound.

Thorns 03:50
I’m joining the resistance I won’t go the distance I questioned my existence And sowed the seeds of doubt Do I give the impression? That I suffer from depression It’s just another session Well, I’m English don’t you know? I’m giving in, I’m giving out You must be deaf, I gotta shout I’m giving up, I’m giving way Nothing left, to do but pray A thorn amongst the roses A legacy to stand on I ain’t got nuffin’ left That I can put me ‘and on A thorn amongst the roses I rose to shed the crown Thorns are in me headspace There’s blood upon my gown I’m giving in, I’m giving out You must be deaf, I gotta shout I’m giving up, I’m giving way Nothing left, to do but pray I’m giving in, I’m giving out You must be deaf, I gotta shout I’m giving up, I’m giving way Nothing left, to do but pray Nothing left, to do but pray Nothing left, to do but pray

Take just one more step I dare you, double dare you, Walk away from nothing Don’t let it hold you back Stare into the distance Life changes in an instance I’m shooting from the lip And I’m picking up the slack Your jumping to conclusions Based upon the past Your world is full of hate And you knew it couldn’t last It’s never down to fate I know I stand alone The torch that you are holding It can’t be set in stone Take just one more step You really have the choice Take just one more step It’s time to raise your voice Take just one more step Walk away from fear Take just one more step And lets get out of here Compassion you don’t comprehend I’m fighting you with peace. Confused you’re losing grip By seeking a release. My time is now I’ll show you how Lets take a little trip I have no gun to threaten you I’m shooting from the lip Take just one more step You really have the choice Take just one more step It’s time to raise your voice Open up your heart And know that you are free Lets make this crystal clear Are you to blind to see Take just one more step You really have the choice Take just one more step It’s time to raise your voice Take just one more step Walk away from fear Take just one more step And lets get out of here

Eternal flow 04:48
Sleep is where you hurt me You didn’t know why The sky didn’t fall From the tear in my eye I’m holding no grudge Just leveling the field The old school was not cool The sword and the shield I failed to raise my head. Discouraged from my task The questions that you ask The shadow it is caste. Can this dream continue? I think I’ve lost my mind Losing motivation And the love of humankind. And so to dreamtime we must go Or drown within their T.V. snow The bastards will not let us go We have to break these chains We are eternal flow Change don’t rearrange The ties that truly bind His story was a lie Let’s leave it all behind No war is ever justified No love is ever dead The speaker needs the listener Or is it in my head? And so to dreamtime we must go Or drown within their T.V. snow The bastards will not let us go We have to break these chains We are eternal flow We are eternal flow And so to dreamtime we must go Or drown within their T.V. snow The bastards will not let us go We have to break these chains We are eternal flow And so to dreamtime we must go Or drown within their T.V. snow The bastards will not let us go We have to break these chains We are eternal flow We are eternal flow

In your ancestral home Beneath the royal dome You sit upon the throne Built on blood and bone You’re rotten to the core The poor you sent to war Just to keep the score They’ll follow you no more Fuck your game of thrones Silence the idols Negating the gods I’m gambling on mankind We can beat the odds At the foot of this mountain My burden is real I’m deaf to the bell It has no appeal My fear is forgotten No heaven or hell I’ll know deep within That all, it is well I crave trancendance Like a phoenix From the ashes I will fly I’ve seen abundance Dots and dashes Like a matrix In my eye Silence the idols Negating the gods I’m gambling on Mankind Beating the odds Silence the idols And love will appear If you are mankind There’s nothing to fear.

The daze of the weak are they numbered I am counting my blessings again My words worth nothing are falling Right off THE END of my pen The bars are projected I stand unprotected My thoughts are rejected AM I THE MACHINE? Is my stupor so stupid Is it hard on my mind Am I one of the many Or just being kind Not scared of my reflection Not bothered by your rejection Immune to your infection Embracing imperfection Thoughts are now racing I’m fighting the pain Sleepless not hopeless And feeling insane And feeling insane I tear at the tears That well in my eyes The hurt is not bitter It’s not a surprise I’ve scratched off the surface I no longer hide Its real love I’m seeking And not foolish pride I know I am selfish I wanted desire You granted me passion And now I’m on fire Now I’m on fire. Not callous, full of passion Loving life is out of fashion I’ve been here all along I never went away I stare at the stairs I try to ascend My heart full of passion I will not pretend My hands they are shaking The dust from my heart Have I gone full circle? I’m back at the start Now I feel helpless My heart starts to race I know deep inside That this is my place. This is my place. I never went away.
