Track Name: HOPE LESS
The everyman and the paper tiger
Locked in their eternal battle
Blood drips from shredded fists
Prometheus' second chapter

N.O.M.A's got a hand around your throat
The other is in your pocket
Choke on the blood
You never asked for this

Ancient comic villans

And if you think about it
For just one fucking second
Well that second was too much
You're not allowed to complain
You're not allowed to dissect

I won't be ruled by fear
I won't be haunted by regret
Nothing's written in stone
Hope less.
There's no way
There's no way
To grow something better in this salted earth
So you blunt your knives,
discard your opinions
Chant uniform wishes that you'd never dreamed

Seething and frenzied
Panicked and screaming

Bled dry the scapegoats until there were none

Plague member

There's no light
There's no hope
Of breaking the cycles that brought us to this
So clean the fields, ready your graves
And thank yourselves for the mess that you've made

Broke down the walls that divide right and reason

The entitled plague of modern man
It's getting harder to keep my mouth shut
Or not to fill it with a fucking gun
This conversation is getting tired
And I want out
I don't relate to the modern world
There's nowhere that I want to be
There's nothing that feels worth my time
There's nothing for me

But here we are
Angry. despondent. Alone
And it's where I feel alive

Here we are
Miserable and spent
But it's where I feel alive

Tradition is worthless
All the shit that you've been told
Tradition is worthless

So here we are
Pointless and wasted
This is where I feel alive

It's all we ever had
I have no purpose
I wouldn't have it any other way
Scared of the dark
So you create light
To fill the void at the end of your life
Denounce real answers in favor of hoping
That death's not forever and this shit has a meaning

This game is old
It always ends the same way

Things aren't getting any better
If you hadn't noticed
So maybe it's time to prize your hands apart
I've been reading between the lines and it's taught me one thing
I have no faith in man
Much less in his creations
Thoughts sear through my head
This shrieking fucking noise
My conscience drowns beneath the new wave of ignorance

Idealistic victories
A slight of hand distracts you from what's really been at stake

Circle the drain

I can't take much more
As things swing from bad to worse
Behind the mask of social change
It's one step forward and two steps back

So how long can it last
Before the kids decide that they've had enough
You can lead a man to water
But you can't make him drown

Circle the drain
Track Name: THE HE-GOAT
I was born feet first into the he goats hands
Eyes closed and screaming and drowning in dread
He said, let me lift that weight from your shoulders
I'll lead you to water and make sure that you drown

He takes me by the throat
And whispers in my ear
Try as you fucking might
You'll die alone I swear

Now that I'm older the world's looking brighter
I've got some ideals and morals and such
As for a purpose? Well I'm told that that's coming
And keep being promised "enough is enough"

But I cant shake
This fucking sinking feeling
That the shadow I cast is no different to any of yours

I'd give anything to make it all stop
Give anything to take it back
Show me the dotted line
I want the easy way out
