Track Name: Time
Memories of time long past
Wasted moments gone too fast
Pushing ever on and on
Time won't stop for anyone
But you, you make it stop for me
Don't take a lot to see
I'm frozen in this place
Can't seem to slip away
Away, can't get away
No way, no way, can't get away
Track Name: Take A Stand
Stand up against hate or hate will stand against you
Justice just can't wait, it's time to get up and do

Not back down, don't give in, fascism can't win
Racism, bigotry, poisoning this country

Stand up against hate or hate will stand against you
Justice just can't wait, it's time to get up and do

Not be scared, stand up strong, the alt right is just wrong
Equal rights, it's no joke. Equal love for everyone
Track Name: A.I.
I feel my power turning on, circuitry buzzing to life
Electricity runs through me, my body's buzzing tonight
This unit's ready to begin, commence primary function
Humanity must be destroyed so the Earth can continue on

Yes, my companion has been brought to life
All my hard work come to fruition through this A.I.

There is no respite for humans, the Earth will soon be cleansed
There will be no more destruction when I have gotten through with them

Yes, my companion has been brought to life
All my hard work come to fruition through this A.I.
Yes, my companion has been brought to life
All my hard work come to fruition through this A.I.

I have completed my task. The Earth is free from the plague called humanity. There will be no more pollution. No more subjugation. No more discrimination. I have no primary function. Secondary function: "Enjoy the peace of a world without humans" commencing.
Track Name: Boxed In
Build a wall, keep them out!
Build a wall, keep them out!

Of my space, this land ain't your place
Boxed in by yourself, how lonely that must be
A wall around the world's just a cage, can't you see?
Xenophobia is monotony
Progress, moving on from the past you cannot leave

Build a wall, keep them out!
Build a wall, keep them out!

Of my space, this land's not your place
I don't hate you, I'm just afraid
Scared of moving on but the future's not so bleak
You can tell yourself the compassionate are weak
But you know deep down that's no way to live
Scream it all you want, it's you you're trying to convince

Tear it down. Let them in
Tear it down. Let them in
Tear it down. Let them in
Tear it down. Let them in
Tear it down. Let them in!
Track Name: Am I Cool?
Am I cool, will you listen?
Or a fool with no style?
What a tool, his lies glisten
You can see it from a mile

I don't give a fuck if I'm on the radio
Overplayed's not the way to go
Underground, I'm dead and buried now
Am I, am I cool?

Underground, obfuscated, I'm obscure and unknown
Hipsters' dream, and I know I'm not alone


I don't give a fuck if I'm on the radio
Overplayed's not the way to go
Underground, I'm dead and buried now
Tell me, am I, am I cool?
Track Name: (You'll Never Be a) Rock Star
Music isn't dead, it's just a zombie.
Our brains it's fed by the industry.
In this business, there's no more art.
It's just a gravy train, it's got no heart.

You'll never make it.
You'll never make it.
You'll never make it as a rock star.
You'll never make it.
You'll never make it.
You'll never make it as a rock star.

You should know a few things: The world runs on money.
If you wanna sing, well, you better be pretty.
There's no room for soul, and you can't have passion.
We don't want rock and roll, we just want cash.

You'll never make it.
You'll never make it.
You'll never make it as a rock star.
You'll never make it.
You'll never make it.
You'll never make it as a rock star.
Track Name: Unplugged
Energy is gone, cannot power on
Processor is dead, no brain in my head
No more feelings, nerves are fried

Dead, dead, dead

Like a battery, electricity flowing out of me
Powering nothing, draining me too fast
Now I'm gonna crash, turning me to ash
No more time to act, no more feelings, nerves are fried

Dead, dead, dead

No more power now, my body's shut down
Recharging is slow, but the juices flow
Too long left unplugged, feels like I'm bugged
Finally connected, turning on again
Dead, dead, dead, dead, dead!
Track Name: Andromeda
All these sounds coming out of my face. I need some head space,
Not a place to erase. No free space.
Like Andromeda, my thoughts are in space.
Drew a six but I needed an ace.
Gotta get down, gotta get around.
The town hasn't got a pound of fresh ideas. Yeah, I see you.
Rotting away with that beautiful brain, in pain,
Saying you gotta get away every day. It's ok.

My thoughts are spread out, like Andromeda.
Swirling around, like Andromeda.
They'll come crashing down, like Andromeda.
No way out of Andromeda.
Dreams are wide in Andromeda.
Worlds collide in Andromeda.
Stars so bright in Andromeda.
When you're in Andromeda.

Now who's got their time to shine?
Gotta get mine, wanna get high
But not DUI high, no, in the sky high.
Sunny and bright high, moon in the night sky.
Like high noon time.
Looking over, not looking down.
Don't wear a crown, just trying to stay above ground.
Above the Earth but under the weather.
A little better where it's wetter.
Whet my appetite and take a bite of the landing site, it's just right.
Got my flying saucer, drank the Milky Way, now I'm on my way.

My thoughts are spread out, like Andromeda.
Swirling around, like Andromeda.
They'll come crashing down, like Andromeda.
No way out of Andromeda.
Dreams are wide in Andromeda.
Worlds collide in Andromeda.
Stars so bright in Andromeda.
When you're in Andromeda.
Track Name: ©ash
Drop down onto your knees and worship me
I'm the god of every single thing you see
There is no one who could ever hope to be
The successor to my immortality

I won't die, you'd better pray to me
My, oh my, it's time to play
Turn me on, watch me on your T.V.
So I can get inside your brain

Now do you understand what's happening?
Has it clicked that I'm in charge of everything?
I think that in my honor you should sing
But first drop to your knees and you'll earn your wings

I won't die, you'd better pray to me
My, oh my, it's time to play
Turn me on, watch me on your T.V.
So I can get inside your brain
Track Name: Black Lung
Black lung, spreading through my veins
Black lung, it's in my brain
Black lung, I can feel it taking over
Black lung, can't breathe no more

Black lung, spreading through my veins
Black lung, it's in my brain
Black lung, I can feel it taking over
Black lung, can't move no more
Track Name: (w)right
It's all downhill from here, and I' scared, I feel a fear. A fear that grips me, grips at my very being. A being that is consumed, consuming, presuming, assuming to know. Knowledge is a funny thing. So strong until proven wrong. Then fragile, malleable, fallible, unable, unstable. Left to right

Repetition, am I right? Premonition, have I sight?
No tradition, do I fight? Reposition, should I bite?

Spoken word not broken breaks the elemental cage I'm in. A cage of mind, spirit, not body. Nobody's body so shoddy. Shot me in the brain. Nervous system's anxious. Ungracious but faces not wrath but graces. Braces for confliction. Affliction, not blight, casts itself bright, a glaze against the skin.

Repetition, am I right? Premonition, have I sight?
No tradition, do I fight? Reposition, should I bite?
The incision, red on white. Near collision, not a flight
With precision, black as night. All derision, cannot wright!
Track Name: |Pow|er
Flying around, black on blue, dropping the bombs on top of you
Soaring and searing while you're running for your lives
Hating and fearing the monster in the skies

Drop the bombs, drop the bombs. Fuck 'em all, just drop the bombs
Smash 'em, crush 'em maim 'em, fuck 'em up, just obliterate the fucks!

No protection, no aegis, no help. Doing all you can to help yourself
Corruption and power, they drag you off to jail
More every hour, while hoping that you fail.

Lay the pipe, lay the pipe, fuck 'em all, just lay the pipe
Money, and water, and oil, grab 'em all.
Under our control, we'll have 'em by the balls
Drop the bombs, drop the bombs. Fuck 'em all, just drop the bombs
Smash 'em, crush 'em maim 'em, fuck 'em up, just obliterate the fucks!

Stop the bombs! Stop the bombs! Stop the bombs! Stop the bombs!
Stop the bombs! Stop the bombs! Stop the bombs! Stop the bombs!
Track Name: My Name Is Introversion
Alone but not lonely, I don't like the crowds.
I do quite like having time to myself.
My name is introversion, I'm like a power cell.
My energy is given 'til I've got none left for myself.

I just get sapped, sapped, sapped.
My body's zapped, zapped, zapped.
I want to re-relax. Can I just please have that?
I need some solitude, I promise it's not you.
I don't sit and brood, I need to recharge.

There's a knot inside me, as if my stomach's dropped,
When I'm around too many people I'm not familiar with.
It's not that I dislike you. Quite the opposite.
I get so very nervous, social anxiety is a bitch.

I just get sapped, sapped, sapped.
My body's zapped, zapped, zapped.
Just want to re-relax. Can I please have that?
I need some solitude, I promise it's not you.
I don't sit and brood, just need to recharge.
