Track Name: Lemmings
Step up
Orders met now
Fall from grace like
Lemmings locked in place
Track Name: Doomed to Repeat
Wild flowers bloom
[Pluck their petals for the moon]
Each one sang it's identity
[Onto floors of scorched graves]
And born with it the specters
[That lost all that brought it whole]
A soulless void once more deployed
[To ground as worn as coal]
And faded as the earth that cries
[We walk across in haunted sighs]

You lied for genocide
Sing to us, your everything

I wish we ran
[After your shadow]
I wish for you
[Entombed]

Cities of forgotten age
[Crumbled, pulled, paved]
The whispers of tranquility
[Replaced by nobility]
A tale of all consumption
[Adults, children, new corruption]
The wild flowers bloom
[Picked petals swing & swoon]
Bring around a new age
[With sacrifice at centre stage]

You lied for genocide
Sing to us, your everything

I wish I ran
[After your shadow]
I wish for you, entombed
I wish-

You pressed on old grounds
And marked our value
You took these lives
And plunged them down
A thought of ill will
Struggling, fighting, still

The smile in your sleep
Slipped down beneath
The comfort of cold gazes
The death of the blameless
A middle class fascist
Rots from within
With spit, and pride
A monster of genocide
Track Name: Rise
As we sat by the riverbed
Made peace with affinity
Lost tomes opened minds
With rain from the oceans

Be what you can't be!
When you're drowning!
Be what you can be!
When you're climbing!
Be who they want!
But not who you are!
Push it back!
Become the new par!

Heard songs of the water
What they had deprived her
The lamp rusted shut
The wishes drowned soon enough

Hanging your head!
Why choke until dead?
Throw a few bones
Break them in rows!
Lie in a heap
For the gods of the deep
We're dying tomorrow
Where next shall we meet?

Be what you can't be!
When you're drowning!
Be what you can be!
When you're climbing!
Be who they want!
But not who you are!
Push it back!
Become the new par!
Track Name: Minor Key Scenes
Time slips out
The scene backwards

Veins are singing
Off a chorus sheet
Read and repeat

I thought you said
I've gone too far
Lower yourself
Read. repeat

Trust what else
In sound and script
Time slips out
The scene backwards

It's dying
Breathless, crying
A minor key scene
Locked inbetween
So you said let's try
Kept time
Holding on for air
You're there, there

So you say today
Hopeless, pray
Wish for life in light
Sleep tonight
Lowered esteem will free
It's free, we're free

The missing steps
The time that's left
Are at the door
Sweetened A rebours
You swore it all
With beckoned calls
Arrivederci
Before the fall

Time is called for every soul
It took such time
For me to fall in line
Hospital beds
And home at last
A doorstep of windows
Locked and dressed

The wind calls out
Whispers of droughts
The accents switched
And purpose flinched
I wished for you
You played it cool
It lost the will
With years it froze

Hier kommt herz
Das ist gebrochen
All blame in life
Delivered in burns
With expectation
In times of need
Let down again
Read & repeat
