1. The World Keeps Turning

No way forward or back
In stalemate, we stagnate
Life cycle is an automation
Instinctively, we race to get ahead?

And now our virgin minds are raped
Another insignificance to join the rat race

Self-indulgence with our grasp
We’re taught but torn from the sanctity of life
So vulnerable
The world keeps turning
We spin out of control

Guided, or could this mean misguided?
No time for questions
Preoccupied with pressing on
The world keeps turning
We overdose on overdrive

Superior species with inferior ideas
We overload our bodies and minds
Respect this earth while commiting suicide

Poison trait
We’re the cause not the cure
Our methods of fulfilment will surely drag us down

Guided, or could this mean misguided?
Our virgin minds are raped
The world keeps turning
We overdose on overdrive, we spin out of control
In stalemate, we stagnate

2. A Means To An End

Humoured
Presumed hysterical for showing alarm
Wise man? Fuck you!
In the hands of wasters
A means to an end
Cast over us appraising eye
Blind ours with nonsensical science
Don’t need silver tongue or your feeble gestures

Spin the coin, roll the dice
The law of averages is irrelevant
‘Cause the outcome’s always the same
Too many distortions in truth
Too few solutions come to light

Stand back, watch the bullshit fly!
Always the same!
Win the hearts of the nation with great expectations
While focusing efforts on discrediting others
Always the same!
The naivety of trust could be a means to an end

3. Insanity Excursion

Dragged down deep in the shit
An unemotional vacuum
Fatigue replaces conscious thought
Awareness ends

To carry a cross we cannot bear
Falling hard without an end
Chaotic insight of times to come

Pressuring insane demand
The tightening noose of the consumers might snap in time

To feed the fire or feel the flame
Falling hard without an end
Chaotic insight of times to come

Relentless and leaning, no fair warning
Falling hard
Pushed against before we stand
Pushed against before we stand

Chaotic insight, which way to turn?
Chaotic insight, which way to turn?
