Track Name: Zodiac
I’m drowning myself
behind empty fucking smiles
and false alibis

Crush my throat, break my spine
there is no escape from what is yours
It's almost time

I am not a prophet but look me in the eyes
And don’t think for a second I won't end your life

We don’t need our revenge
We’re keeping you our fucking secret
Track Name: Oppression
We’re all divorced from reality
mental deficiencies have made us blind

We’ve come too far
to let the wheels of progress come
grinding down to a halt

Will you stand?
or be trampled under
the crushing weight of their demands

Path to perdition, did we lose ourselves along the way?
so let us bathe in the blood of deceit
and let us drink from the spring of hate

We cannot lose hope
and when we call out our
fallen brothers names

We will be the hope
for those who have lost the
will to carry on

Blood will fill the streets
of innocent and guilty alike
we will drown their regime

Hope is never lost
Don't you ever lose sight

We cannot lose hope
and when we call out our
fallen brothers names

We will be the hope
for those who have lost the
will to carry on

We cannot lose hope
We will not lose hope
Track Name: Vices
They remain hiding in the shadows
that’s where they’ve always shone the brightest

Fallen from grace, angels with blackened wings
plant sinister intention in the weak of heart
ideas multiply and infect those minds
perverse desires detached from society (Detached from society)

Devoid of humanity
the world it burns beneath their feet
pathetic crippled souls, who let darkness envelop
their unfathomably empty hearts

Are we meant to know, have we lost our way
have we been failed by those
prophets who swore they’d lead the way
Can we truly defeat
those committed to hate
their words paint portraits of decay

Destroyed without a trace
annihilate, defeat of the human race
conscious without conscience we fall

We will fall as one

Devoid of humanity
the world it burns beneath their feet
pathetic crippled souls, who let darkness envelop
their unfathomably empty hearts
Track Name: When I Stopped Calling It Home
The humans have grown too proud
they will be the death of themselves
only another solar system
will save them now

It's time to leave your home
abandon all you’ve known
this will be our last goodbye

We have fought to survive for so long
we forgot what it means to belong
and this reign’s lasted far to long

We are but satellites
lost betwixt space and time
we are but satellites
drifting with no end in sight

We’ve only scratched the surface
of what progress can find
but have we manufactured
our own demise

We can start again
somewhere new
is my child to blame
for all I've done

We have fought to survive for so long
we forgot what it means to belong
and this reign’s lasted far to long

Our time has come, our time has come

Waiting to turn the tide
waiting to turn back time
awaken collective mind
waiting with open arms
