Track Name: New World Sympathy
New World Sympathy
Music: N. Da Silva
Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook

It’s a struggle that we face – sell our souls for pay
Feel the risk and feel the weight – of our, “demonocracy”
In this new world sympathy – she is, forced to choose one way
Dirty bills or poverty

But what will be decided?
Two paths of living life
Her morals are divided
From what is wrong and right

She admits the times have changed – when we, cannot break away
From this fake security – drilling day by day
To cooperate, to generate the tar that suffocates
Dirty bills or poverty

But what will be decided?
Two paths of living life
Her morals are divided
From what is wrong and right

But what will be decided?
Two paths of living life
Her morals are divided
From what is wrong and right

She knows this is destruction
Of our humanity
A new realm of disaster
A path they clearly made
Without morality
Track Name: Take Us Away
Take Us Away
Music: N. Da Silva/B. Soares
Lyrics: N. Da Silva

Imbalanced and abused through time
Division of the mind and what is right
The flow that keeps us all alive
It’s about to show us what it needs to survive

We are the parasite
And soon we all will die
The balance will return in time

We’ll have nothing left to say
We’ll have no one left to blame
When the world is fucked and gone
If there’s something left to say
Go find someone left to blame
When the end’s about to come
And take us away

We live without a change in sight
Awaken to the truth and open your eyes
Together we must search inside
And free ourselves, from ourselves again

We’ll have nothing left to say
We’ll have no one left to blame
When the world is fucked and gone
If there’s something left to say
Go find someone left to blame
When the end’s about to come

And then take us away from this hell we made
I said take me away from this hell we made

We’ll have nothing left to say
We’ll have no one left to blame
When the world is fucked and gone (x2)

We’ll have nothing left to say
We’ll have no one left to blame
When the end’s about to come
And take us away
Track Name: The Downward Spiral: Save Us From Ourselves
The Downward Spiral: Save Us From Ourselves
Music: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook/B. Soares
Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook

All these years go by
I see my life so high, a passed down memory
Life before, I live the dream
My own suffering
Should I do anything?
A view of hopelessness
A product of my carelessness

My fears, despair, consume me
Save me, save us from ourselves
My mind is free, abuse me
Save me, save us from ourselves
Ourselves, ourselves

Aware of what I see
I choose to let it be a disconnected way
Still I wait for them to say
Waiting patiently
For the change in me
But will I ever be
Rid of this complacency?

My fears, despair, consume me
Save me, save us from ourselves
My mind is free, abuse me
Save me, save us from ourselves
Ourselves, ourselves

Now, I can see – there will never be an end to this
How can I be so mindless to the lack of consciousness?
Fight or flight – never caring of the end in sight
We must need adrenaline to purge the fear we always fight

A downward spiral (x4)

My fears, despair, consume me
Save me, save us from ourselves
My mind is free, abuse me
Save me, save us from ourselves
Ourselves, ourselves
Track Name: Lies
Lies
Music: N. Da Silva/B. Soares/S. Westbrook/N. Favretto
Lyrics: N. Da Silva

Goodbye blue sky
A wasteland in sight
When we run dry
We’ll bring the decline
Of life

Thirteen thousand in an hour is the destiny
Brutal killings and displacement in conformity
Take advantage now to “better the economy”
See the government fuck the majority

Dig for gold and hijack society
Turn the land into a corporate colony
All to “better Western prosperity”
While we cheat and fuck all humanity

All these lies will kill millions of lives
The 1% that play out our eventual demise
All these lies destroy our future ties
Ignoring all the values that will keep us alive
Goodbye blue sky, a wasteland in sight
When we run dry we’ll bring the decline

When did we lose our connection to the Earth?
The devastation we create must be reversed
Open your eyes and wake up your minds
Open your eyes before it’s too late

Dig for gold and hijack society
Turn the land into a corporate colony
All to “better Western prosperity”
While we cheat and fuck all humanity

Take a stand and we can fight politically
Fight for what is right environmentally
Their morals lack responsibility
Apocalyptic reflection of reality

All these lies will kill millions of lives
The 1% that play out our eventual demise
All these lies destroy our future ties
Ignoring all the values that will keep us alive
Goodbye blue sky, a wasteland in sight
When we run dry we’ll bring the decline
Of life

When we run dry
We’ll bring the decline
