Track Name: Passing
I see the world as a passing train 
I love you insane
Couldn't let go of the thought
Of everything exploding
You keep destroying the environment
You keep destroying our lives
What i want is for you to know
And somehow you will let go

You will let go 
Of everything you do 
That destroys this planet
That destroys lives

I wish someone could tell me what's going on
Someone who's been paying more attention to the story

My eyes are empty 
I can't stop shaking
From feeling so numb 
To the world
You created

A tilted scale of good and bad
Right and completely wrong
And you’re slipping
Slipping further down
Wish there was a way back
That you showed signs of change

Nothing gets better
All thoughts of my utopia are forever gone

I’d paint you a picture 
Of what it’s all like
But all I would paint is a noose
Slowly being tied

My eyes are empty 
I can't stop shaking
From feeling so numb 
To the world
You created

And yet again, I hang my head 
And yet again, I hang my head 
in the deepest of shame
Track Name: Staying
Blue grey eyes 
i misplaced your face,
but this time i wont be forgotten
i will be erased.

What is it i see, love?
I don't know but it could be anything, my dear
a cliff, a dead-end, where it all ends

What we saw was the end of friendships. 
we became too distant, I was just never there
And light turned out
To be an illusion 
You erased me
And dared to live.

Said that sometimes you have to dare to face your problems 
To stay and confront them

But as i found myself in a situation of constant repetition 
Where after two years we never reached a conclusion
I started to see things differently 

You stayed for two years
Nothing changed
Now you will finally make your escape
Said that sometimes you have to dare to run away
But i will stay. I am too afraid. 
Track Name: Man/Monster
We devastate
It's time to open up the flood gates

The poison, the cure
It's in the food 
The food we consume
The lives we consume

We are the monsters you seek
We are the secret
We are the monsters you seek
Nurture the secret
Hide our existence

Livestock. Living stock. Living resources.

The signals of misery
The extinction of families

You look at them
Money is all you see

I see families
I see the tragedy
I see the slaughtering 
The fucking harbouring 
All these horrible things 
All these horrible things
All these horrible things 
These fucking horrible things

One day you will finally see 
All the things that you have caused to rot
You will cry yourself to sleep 
As the guilt is slowly breaking you
You will cry yourself to sleep
When you realise what you have done
You will cry yourself to sleep
As the cancer slowly takes you

You slaughter them all 
We are the monsters you seek
You slaughter our world
We are the monsters you seek
Track Name: Takers
I wanted to be a father

And then i realised
There are just too many of us

More of us should be born outside of these cities
Outside these circles that keeps us captives

More of us should live outside the fences 
Outside societies walls, outside these meaningless trenches

I wish you could break through
I wish you could see through
Be outside, outside your head 
Be born again 

It’s the routine that keeps you captive
It’s where the anxiety comes from  
It’s where they imprison you

I wish you could break through
I wish you could see through
Be outside, outside your head 
Be born again 
Track Name: Comfort
A false view of the world
Watch my fragile body
fall to the floor

Conform to the same pattern
I hope you never see what I see

You want
More, more, more
But same planet, same scheme
Same flaws

My head is open
My thoughts are free
Conform me
Tell me lies
Hold me
Comfort me

It’s pointless
Heartless
Useless

My head is open
My thoughts are free
Conform me
Tell me lies
Hold me
Comfort me

They keep pulling strings
And you need to feel safe
They keep pulling strings
And you need to feel safe
They keep pulling strings

And that's when you stop. 

[Spoken word] As long as I can remember, I’ve felt different. Everyone else seems so confident about what to do, their place in the world, what’s right or wrong. I still haven’t figured out my place, cause the things most other people want, their right and wrong, are not the same as mine. To you, owning things are more important than the environment. Hurting other beings to make yourself feel good is not a problem to you, no actually it’s the most natural thing in the world. To you, I’m the freak. I guess I am - I’m the one with the psychiatric diagnosis. Well, I’d rather have General Anxiety Disorder than being indifferent to the suffering of our Earth and its inhabitants. [Spoken word]

Stop eating,
Stop sleeping,
Stop dreaming,
Stop wanting,
Stop wishing
For anything.

It's when you realise how small you really are
How truly insignificant your life seems...
