Track Name: Shallow Bastards
Ripped from the womb of pretentiousness
Always quick to judge
Warped view of humankind
You think so little, yet speak so much

Devoid of any logic
Hatred runs deep inside
Claiming a false supremacy
Trapped in a prejudicial mind

Shallow

Witness the corpse of progression
A world embracing scorn
Living under forced segregation
Acceptance of a world stillborn

Devoid of any logic
Hatred runs deep inside
Claiming a false supremacy
Trapped in a prejudicial mind

Shallow

Shallow Bastards
Track Name: Faceless Ones
Our hands whip the pages
This collection of lies
We inhale the treacherous stench of their pretence
That we are forced to endure

Faceless Ones

Our eyes are fixated
On the screen – This exhibit of lies
We inhale the treacherous stench of their pretence
That we are forced to endure

Faceless Ones

Faceless Ones
Track Name: Liferuiner
These footsteps that grace the soil
Only serve to disappoint

Visions of darkness
An unending cycle of disarray
Wretched perception
Scratching this surface of grey

Suffer this world
Liferuiner
Embrace decay

Dragging me down
Liferuiner
This poison grave

These footsteps that grace the soil
Only serve to disappoint

I breathe in the blackness
This abhorrent flood of misanthropy
Ataraxy in malice
This sought after treasure of misery

Suffer this world
Liferuiner
Embrace decay

Dragging me down
Liferuiner
This poison grave
Track Name: The Art of Debilitation
All hope is devoured
Swallowed whole by the promise of salvation
Creeps forth in the shroud of your ignorance
And hacks you down in the form of belief

The trust is exploited
Crawl on your knees in search of salvation
Blinded by the total hypocrisy
They suck you in and destroy you with their apathy

The art of debilitation!

Instilling fear in the masses
Left paralysed by their hunger for power
Propaganda in the shadow of deceit
The weak made blind. Products of cruelty.

The greed!
The lies!
The fraud!
The art of debilitation!

Does free speech exist now?
Enforcing punishment for dissent
Are we brainwashed by fallacies?
Do we react or suffer in silence?

We are conquered by false hope
Pouncing on our own insecurities
Infecting the weak and submissive
We are imprisoned by our fear of the unknown

The art of debilitation!

Instilling fear in the masses
Left paralysed by their hunger for power
Propaganda in the shadow of deceit
The weak made blind. Products of cruelty.

The greed!
The lies!
The fraud!
The art of debilitation!

The art of debilitation
Scourged by “promise” and corruption
We are conquered by greed
Drenched in the terror they breed

The art of debilitation
Scourged by “promise” and corruption

Oblivious to consequence
Unaware that they are frauds
Like circling vultures, they prey
Devoid of any sympathy

The art of debilitation
The process of ruination
The art of debilitation
Ruled by fear and manipulation
