Track Name: Atomic Desolation
Atomic Desolation

I won't listen to your shit
Corruption makes me bloody sick
Societies run by blatant lies
Controlling us until we die
Totalitarian police state
World-wide economic rape
Mankind's only salvation...?
Atomic desolation!

Toxic levels of radiation
Black scorched earth, devastation
Lethal fallout, acid rain
Wreaking havoc, bringing pain

Skeletons of steel and glass
Catacombs for
the brainwashed masses
Ruins filled with charred remains
This lifeless world
shall be our grave!
Track Name: Crisis

They get involved in foreign wars
Missiles knocking at their doors
Invading countries for their oil
Destroyed cultures bloodied soil

(They've got)
No mind of their own
Just a gun and some orders
"Bomb all the infidels!"
Televized beheadings
and murder

National insecurity
Power hungry war machines
Fuel for global crisis
More terrorists from ISIS

with no demands for ransom
Examples of brutality on display
spread like excrement
Depraved, no sense, deranged

Propaganda glorifying
Fight and die for religions
Tricked into enlisting
Conned into conscription
Track Name: Bestial

Stinking putrefacted piles
Decay and rotting make me smile
Cesspools leaking gasses
Causing putrid burning rashes!

Morbid lust, scabs and crust!
Dead and cold, the stench of mold!

Throbbing, and swelling,
scabbed, and pussing,
Blood and semen,
mixing and seeping
Itching and flaking,
diseased and scraping,
Her skin is blue...
Mine's red and aching!
Track Name: Incorrect

Political correctness,
oh, what a mess
Illogical people who
lack common sense
Feelings go first,
facts come later
Attacking opinions,
no life matters

Attention seekers...
assume and harrass!
No middle ground,
just arguments biased

The social justice warriors
Regurgitated verbal attacks
Policing our thoughts
Mental concentration camps

Imposing and judging, under veil of equality
No excuse for privelege , guilty of bigotry!
Track Name: Legions

Legions marching,
taking with force
Mental torment,
physical torture,
Anguished souls
on battlefields barren
Surrounded by
the rotted fallen

Forced possession,
don’t try resisting
aggression charging
by their bayonets
on their toxic gasses

No need for rest,
relentless attack!
Heavy artillery,
mortar and flak
Hear the signal,
sound the cry
Watch them marching
off to die!
Track Name: Pissed in the Pit
Pissed in the Pit

Flailing arms, flying elbows
Bleeding lips, broken noses
Drunken violence, cracking ribs
Adrenalin is kicking in

Pissed... in the pit
Bloodied, and bruised, a knee to your face
Pissed... in the pit
Tearing it up, and thrashing the place

Beer is spilled on the ground
Bodies get shoved around
Broken chairs, shards of glass
Stop to think, you're on your ass
Track Name: Pathogen

Clouds streaking in the skies
Generous sprayings of pesticides
Chemicals buildup, persisting lethality
Poisoning our cities, building toxicites

Production and application
With no regard to effects
Seizures and paralysis
From exposure to pathogens

(Spoken part)
Synthetic seeds and modified genes
Irradiated breeds and cancerous vaccines
Delayed release nanomachines
Man made virus, controlled disease!
Track Name: Open Eyes
Open Eyes

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh
Open your eyes
The government lies
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh
The government lies
And their innocents die

Our tax dollars
just go to waste
On Trump and Trudeau's
expensive tastes
They dont listen to
anything we've gotta say
Doing things their greedy way

Don't listen to what...
they try to tell ya!
Don't eat what...
they try to feed ya!
Track Name: Senses Attuned
Senses Attuned

Senses attuned,
reflexes like lightning
Fangs razor pointed,
claws sharp and frightening
Vision so honed,
eyes always in focus
Ears sensitized
so that nothing is missed

Instinctual... hunter
...Natural born killers!
Blood-thirsty... terror
...Primal and feral!

Prowling I stalk,
under cover of night
My prey unwitting,
no chance for flight
I watch and I wait
for the opportune moment
Make no mistakes,
one swift movement

Launch from position,
strike instantly
Kill with precision,
death comes suddenly
Morbid satisfaction,
a deed so deadly
Corporeal mess,
your soul's now free
Track Name: Darkest Dawn
Darkest Dawn

Pestilence and war
Atomic bombers soar
Bringing death and pain
Beginning of black days

Decimating everyone,
Don't try to resist
Smash their skulls,
and spill their brains
Their throats must all be slit!

Pestilence and war
Atomic bombers soar
Bringing death and pain
Beginning of black days
Total devastation
Come, annihilation
Taste your destruction
Plague and death we summon

The darkest dawn!
Track Name: Shattered

(When) We relax and try to unwind
We enjoy the joy of a joint
"Mary jane" is our best bud
She makes us all feel
Alright! ...Alright!

(We'll) scrape some resin, and make some hash
That sweet sticky hippie crack
Buckets, ice and bags, butane extractors
Brewing bubble hash and batches of
Shatter! ...Shattered!

Each and every little roach
An experience of its own
Chronicles, a tale to tell
So many clouds of smoke
Cut it, bust it, grind it all
Meticulously grown
Pack it in, Rip it up
Tokin' till we choke! ...Choke!

Blaze the pain, and the day away
Lungs gasping, and totally breathless
Minds racing, panicked and anxious
The world turns, convulses and
Shatters! ...Shatters!
Track Name: Protest to Exist
Protest to Exist

Thoughts go unspoken,
crimes go unpunished
We've got to stand up
It's time to resist
Toying with fate,
mixing up DNA
Pollution they create,
it's time to start change

(It's) Time to revolt,
it's time to, fucking resist!
You've gotta protest,
If you want to exist!

Revolt! Resist! Protest To exist!

We can't just leave it for tomorrow
There's no more time for us to borrow
You've gotta make your voices heard
And separate off from the herd
Track Name: Last Minute
Last Minute

Mass production of toxic waste
Sick pollution of rivers, and lakes
Sudden mutations, broken food chains
Acidification of the rain

We need action now,
no time to procrastinate
Rancid acid clouds
shouldn't be our fate
Burning petro-chemicals,
humanity is ignorant
Our future will be shit
if we leave it till last minute
Track Name: Among Us
Among Us

Aliens, they live among us
Altering genetics
Aliens, controlling us
Their human experiments

Crop circles,
mysterious abductions
Alien implants,
Advanced technology,
Hybrid creatures
ruling our nations!
