Track Name: Headstrong
Kneeling down to who we idolize, do we know who we're fighting for?

We are artless enemies
over vacant scuffles,
Crusaders with hollow causes.

Its a false duality, where the kings and queens marvel at our foolishness.
We are just feeble pawns in this game they play.
With the prize being none other than parasitic power.
And without rules, there are no penalties.

As my manufactured skin begins to shed,
And as I open these ignorant eyes:
I stare straight into the face of the Sun.
A venture that nobody can overcome.

I come to realize,
That we've been force-fed lies.
Now questions are born within me:
The flame that society tries to lay to rest.
I will illuminate the truth,
To end your pointless quest.

As my manufactured skin begins to shed,
And as I open these ignorant eyes:
I stare straight into the face of the Sun.
A venture that nobody can overcome.

Into the disapproved possibilities:
That I've been fighting an empty war - That I've been living my life for a non-existent creator;
The puzzle pieces start to fit:

Displaying horrific replicas of the dense blindfolds, we all instinctively wear.

We are all subjects to society.
Track Name: Illusionist
Volatile hope has you crumbled and surrounded in a dusty array of humiliation.
Ghosts speak lies into naive minds.
Unseal the blindfold, don't fall into your mass grave.

Evacuate your dusk home of vacancy,
Where you're surrounded by a spurious substance.
Where you're transgressing deeper into a tightened noose that tears at your neck.

Following false signs of the truth you envision actuality through a blurred lens, as your being thrown onto a deathbed.

That path contains no divergence, but rather carries an essence of senselessness.
But your ignorance has gotten the best of you, and I can do nothing but watch.

Look around, and realize that this atmosphere has outspoken.
Unlike your pretentious hero.

Wake up.

So many follow fate into conclusions, if only their deaf ears could hear my warning.
So many follow fate into conclusions, if only their opaque minds could process honesty.

Wake up, humanize, time has been wasted on a malicious mapmaker.

This irrational conviction has driven the nails into your casket.
Wake up.
Track Name: Fanboy Ft. Shawn Spann
What have we become?
Just simple mindless men.
What have we become?
Every move we make,
Just brings us closer to the end.

Anything in abundance can render useless.
We are all victims to a corrupt creed.
Live life yourself, not through a taught belief.

Why are we longing to give away our perceptions,
To become minions of a mindless militia?
No free will, no questions. No longer human,
They've rendered our open minds useless.

Fanaticism is the key to forget your equity.
And deprave into a single stubborn damn mentality.

I cannot believe that all of you are here:
Doing nothing, to win this war.

It's so simple to believe what your taught:
Serving corrupt convictions.
Without any care to question;
Without cares to question.
I won't obey my entire life away.

Stop following the brainwashed herd,
Construct your own cause.
Force your voice, and you will be heard.

(SHAWN SPANN)
What did we become?
Just simple, simple I'm begging you to please:
Just be free.
What did we become?
Just simple, simple mindless men.
Just be free.

We are what we think: Not what we're taught.
Find reason in yourself.
Your soul won't be bought.
All your reasons rest right in the palms of your hands.
Don't swallow this force-fed trash.
Track Name: Our Survival
Color these black and white pages.
The depth of these hues has filled my heart with contentment.
Life is an art,
And i'm learning the ways.

Now is your chance to seize the day,
Before time takes it all away.
Here's the present.
May i ask you,
How will you spend it?

I will sculpt this duration in vibrant everlasting colors.
While you reside as an eager corpse anticipating your banal burial beneath a barren soil.

Don't chuck your diamonds into the ocean,
Don't watch your dreams drown with compunction.
Scavenge for the light in your life, no matter how deep you dive.
We'll yell in triumph, as we near dissolution.

I will catch all the shooting stars falling from the sky to the palms of my hands.
My ambitions will make my life worth living.

Now is your chance to seize the day,
And progress into the right way.
Cut the anchors from your feet,
Remember what its like
As you were drowning underneath?

I will surpass the obstacles before me scorning all seductions with a shield on my arm charging through the guardians of my mind.

I overcome.

Don't chuck your diamonds into the ocean,
Don't watch your dreams drown with compunction.
Scavenge for the light in your life, no matter how deep you dive.
We'll yell in triumph, as we near dissolution.

I will catch all the shooting stars falling from the sky to the palms of my hands.
My ambitions will make my life worth living.

I will live in depth and leave my mark.
I will not fail any longer.
Track Name: Give Mercy
Bitter behavior is contagious.
And we're all fatally ill;
Spitting in innocent faces,
To get imaginary elevations

Disconnect your mind from this customary, reoccurring, cycle of vengeance.
Revenge does not achieve anything.

The human race feeds off each other like selfish animals.
It only adds to the endless suffering.
As barbarians, we are relentless.

Retribution is too accepted in this savage universe.

Your hubris has gotten in the way of unity.
Learn to forgive your brothers,
Be the better man.

There is no revenge as complete as forgiveness.

There is no reason to continue the cycle of hatred and misery;
No matter how crippled you lay.

Pick yourself up, turn the other cheek.
Give your enemy a hearty handshake.
You are far from defeat.
So admirable; a benefactor to us all.

Shine a habitual affection into this vengeful race,
And we'll begin a revolutionary cycle of generosity.
And this succession won't cease to spin and re-compensate everyone of us.

This path has brought me an undying reward.
I forgive you.
I am intact.
I am complete.
