Track Name: Lotus Eaters
Lotus Eaters

With the ship of fools they sail
Faceless humanoids,
Of all self-awareness
And identitiy devoid

Lotus eaters
Self-deceivers –
A travesty of liberty

Without a fight
They admit complete defeat
And senselessly they worship
Some obscure elite

Lotus eaters
Self-deceivers –
A travesty of liberty

Won’t you take a chance
And swim up the stream
It’s such a fateful ride
Long ago you would have been seen
As a man of valor
Now just a would-be suicide,
A goner

Lotus eaters
Self-deceivers –
A travesty of liberty

Lotus eaters
Self-deceivers –
The tragedy of humanity
Track Name: The Prometheus Deception
The Prometheus Deception

Influential intellectual? Subverter in truth
For selfish ends you can never reach the Absolute

Do you really expect to be
Taken so damn seriously?

Watch history change in modern books
Affecting our perception
To idolize a virtual crook
Is a well forethought deception

You are aiming higher
Want to play with fire
The feeble you inspire
Yes you do
Scam in the guise of wisdom
You despise just to make the skies
Laugh at you

A judgement on you is due without a doubt:
By a bird of prey you’re going to have
Your liver eaten out

Now would you still expect to be
Taken so damn seriously?

Watch history change in modern books
Affecting our perception
To idolize a virtual crook
Is a well forethought deception

You are aiming higher
Want to play with fire
The feeble you inspire
Yes you do
Scam in the guise of wisdom
You despise just to make the skies
Laugh at you

You are playing with fire
Track Name: They Pull The Strings
They Pull The Strings

...Pull the strings again!..

Go!

I don’t need the latest news to know just how we live:
Where there is a scandal it’s easy to forgive

They pull the strings and we dance, don’t ask why
They make their moves and we fall, left to die

I wonder what happens if I just keep my mouth shut,
Obey and buy all that they’re offering to me –
I might as well give up everything reduced to slavery,
Never to be free...

What seems to be so charming is rotting inside
Make-believe and shallowness, to see this i can’t abide

They pull the strings and we dance, don’t ask why
They make their moves and we fall, left to die

I wonder what happens if I put on a mask of apathy.
Just let me see if it really helps to take away the pain -
I might as well search for my own paradise on Jeopardy Lane...
Wouldn’t it be insane?
Track Name: Diamond-cutter
Diamond-cutter

Mr. Big Shot's got a rival at the head of the state...
It's a matter of survival: they're deciding on our fate

We are the ones denied and rejected
By the leaders we have elected

Diamond cut diamond...
What are you maniacs trying to prove?
Cut the crap or we will cut you down!

Unrestrained emulation - head first to a concrete wall
Is this the way to serve your nation? I can't see your point at all!

We are the ones denied and rejected
By the leaders we have elected

Diamond cut diamond...
What are you maniacs trying to prove?
Cut the crap or we will cut you down!

Diamond cut diamond - you're aching to be heard
What makes you think you must always have the last word?
Diamond cut diamond - the truth always hurts
There's always someone out there to start a war of words

Diamond cut diamond...
What are you maniacs trying to prove?
Cut the crap or we will cut you down!
