Track Name: Civilization Extermination (Glitch Mode Re-master)
It isn't a simple lie, a simple advertising campaign
it's a military campaign
it's management, maintenance, occupation
It isn't a simple lie, a simple advertising campaign
it's a military campaign
it's management, maintenance, occupation
the soldiers aren't in the desert
they're in your fucking living room

let your fear die
feel eternal
become the endless animal
connect to what's real
take a closer look at what feels like free will

fight control
strangle the culture
bury reality
find one another
stay under-cover
don't run away

Hey!
We've all been conscripted
consume
pollute
perpetuate!
Hey!
We've all been the soldiers
we didn't know
we were exploited!
Hey!
We're already in alignment
It's time to choose our own Direction
Hey!
We all know the terrain
If you see a weakness
Exploit it

Let your fear die
Stop the horror film running in the back of your mind
Calmly get up from your seat
and walk slowly to the nearest exit
Don't be the target

intuitions found
when paradise is burning
beat down the walls
of your shrinking prison
breath the air
eat the vision
cross the lines
of the false division

the war is not in the desert
the war is on the asphalt
the war is on the concrete
the war IS the concrete

I think to myself, I just want to feel safe
Well I'm tired of looking for a prison, a prison to call home
Prison walls aren't strong enough to keep you safe
civilization, extermination! civilization, extermination!

you'll just drown in style with the rest of us

I see a crack in the all
Exploit it!
Track Name: Bloodlust Blues (Glitch Mode Re-master)
Murder!
I got the bloodlust blues
Victims!
Murder!
I got the bloodlust blues
Victims!
Which one should I choose?

no empathy
no morality
just the creature
and all the apologies

Murder!
I got the bloodlust blues
It's a man's world
so a man I choose

misery made me a fiend
a broken human being
Made by the silence of your language

No more reality
No more “I”
Just the creature
And all the apologies

Murder!
I got the Bloodlust Blues
I'm the creature through and through

the fiend made me a misery
twisted me up
in reasoning
it takes two fools to argue
it's true
but only one to get his throat slit
Track Name: Young.Broke.Pissed. (Glitch Mode Re-master)
Cuz I'm young and broke and pissed
And I'm tired of feeling powerless
It's the C4 motherfucker
Cuz I'm young and broke and pissed
And I'm tired of feeling powerless
It's the C4 motherfucker
Get it done
It's the C4 motherfucker
That gets it done

rotting in front of this screen
hating this world I want to save
doesn't matter what I believe
just how I behave

Naked, let my truth stand naked
my skin blisters in the searing light
I feel the edge of the barrel to my head
scratch my number, I'm already dead!

Cuz I'm young and broke and pissed
And I'm tired of feeling powerless
It's the C4 motherfucker
Get it done
It's the C4 motherfucker
That gets it done

I say I don't know what to do
but I know exactly how to consume
I exist between programmed and addicted
knowing what but not knowing how

To make good, of this useless heart
to erase their mark, no longer be a victim
I feel the edge of the barrel to my head
scratch my number, I'm already dead!

Cuz I'm young and broke and pissed
And I'm tired of feeling powerless
It's the C4 motherfucker
Get it done
It's the C4 motherfucker
That gets it done

I am the fuse
Track Name: Levels (Glitch Mode Re-master)
I put together in a factory
My waste is premeditated, and my behavior is predictable
But the materials from which I am made are not as predictable
I put together in a factory
My waste is premeditated, and my behavior is predictable
But the materials from which I am made are not as predictable
I find mind self out of alignment
drifting further from the safe place
I seethe structure beneath the chaos
The world I live in was constructed
If worlds can be constructed why not make my own
Track Name: Fat Slave (Glitch Mode Re-master)
never enough time
not enough life
powerless over every minute
never enough time
not enough life
powerless over every minute
envying the sleeping idiot

I want to...
don't know anymore, don't know anymore
Light myself on fire
So I don't burn out
I'd like to think
I'm above it all, above it all
but I'm deeper in this shit
than I allow myself to think

I should be making statements bigger than my petty self
but word are lost, there's nothing to say
I feel so damn small today
I'm tired of this hero shit
I just want to fall in the deepest pit
And dig my way down to the core
and sleep my way through this fucking war

I want to..
fuck it all, fuck it all
grow fat as a slave
and sing along, sing along
place my hand over my heart
and drink the oil, smother the world
take a pharma holiday
get teary eyed as that flag unfurls

I should be making statements bigger than my petty self
but word are lost, there's nothing to say
I feel so damn small today
I'm tired of this hero shit
I just want to fall in the deepest pit
And dig my way down to the core
and sleep my way through this fucking war

And be adored

why care
why not give in
be someone else
kill the human
cuz you can't
you can't
you're stuck with it
love doesn't always mean understanding

I am a fat slave
in rooms too small
never enough time
not enough life
