1. Far Too Late

What did you dream of in your youth
How is it now that youíre getting old
Doesnít it look bleak from where you stand

You never tried to see the light
You thought that it would just come along
Things havenít work out how you planned

And so it seems life passed you by
The world it had no room for those who fail to try
And after all itís far too late

You never tried to think it through
And now you pay for your apathy
Your hopes are long since at an end

And so it seems life passed you by
The world it had no room for those who fail to try
And after all itís far too late

Doesnít it look bleak from where you stand
Things havenít worked out how you planned
Your hopes are long since at an end
You find yourself your only friend

And so it seems life passed you by
The world it had no room for those who fail to try
And after all itís far too late

Now here we are out in the rain
No shelter so drown from your weakness
You find yourself your only friend




2. Jinx

Thereís dark around you
I donít know what to do
Aural stench, bruising vibe
Immoral threat to our tribe

Itís dark around you
I donít know what to do
Aural stench, bruising vibe
Immoral threat to our tribe

It clouds my vision
A karma incision
Bitter sight tasting vile
A brazen ego goes to trial

Act out and change your ways
Start now thereís only days
Act out and change your ways
Start now thereís only days

No chance is that what youíre telling me
You canít change, your thoughts are a felony
Too hard youíre locked up without a key
Too bad your life has been misery

No chance is that what youíre telling me
You canít change, your thoughts are a felony
Too hard youíre locked up without a key
Too bad your life has been misery

Itís dark around you
I donít know what to do
Aural stench, bruising vibe
Immoral threat to our tribe




3. Chasing Salvation / Heliopath

Youíve got a lot inside your head
From all the crap youíre being fed
Is it that you want to change yourself
Or play the game for someone else

Did you sit there and just believe
Is your arrogance that naïve
Your tunnel vision has no reprieve
Shallow life when you self deceive

Consume yourself in lies that you have nurtured from your fear
Sit inside a shell afraid to share with death so near
Anaemic and bulimic is the soul you tried to raise
Alone the way youíre shone without a friend for all your days

Consume yourself in lies that you have nurtured from your fear
Sit inside a shell afraid to share with death so near
Anaemic and bulimic is the soul you tried to raise
Alone the way youíre shone without a friend for all your days

When you finally see what youíve done
Your salvation has turned and run

-----

Am I not what you want me to be
Am I not what you expected to see
I am the Jesus reincarnate

Iím not a toy, did you think you could play
With me there just isnít a way
Broken world when you fuck with the god of the sun

Live your life in self submission
Drink in hand and prohibition

And youíll try and youíll die, donít know why
And youíll try and youíll die, donít know why
And youíll try, donít know why and youíll die

Walk with me
Talk with me
Then youíll see
You cannot, you will not be free

Am I not what you want me to be
Am I not what you expected to see
I am the Jesus reincarnate

Iím not a toy, did you think you could play
With me there just isnít a way
Broken world when you fuck with the god of the sun




4. Tolerance

I took my medicine just like I was told
Without my tolerance Iím out of control

I cannot stand you
I would not lie
Wonít put up with the egos of those I despise

Your storyís been told
Your attitudeís old
Why did you have to push me
Are you really that bold?

Your storyís been told
Your attitudeís too damn old
Why do you have to push me
YouĎre out of control

Youíre all just insects
Youíre only bugs
Iíll take an AK to the shopping mall and fill you with slugs

Your storyís been told
Your attitudeís old
Why did you have to push me
Are you really that bold?

Your storyís been told
Your attitudeís too damn old
Why do you have to push me
Iím out of control

Come to the edge
Drop off the ledge
And lose control
Come feel the rift
Jump off the cliff
And cleanse your soul

Come to the edge
Drop off the ledge
And lose control
Come feel the rift
Jump off the cliff
And cleanse your soul

Come to the edge
Drop off the ledge
And lose control

Your storyís been told
Your attitudeís too damn old
Why do you have to push me
Iím out of control

Youíre all pathetic
Youíre making me sick
I wish you could see the darkness thatís making me tick




5. Dying to get Laid

You didnít care, you had a buzz
You wouldnít listen to the friends you know and trust
You couldnít think with your right head
So now we suffer at the loss because youíre dead

And I could tell just by your face
That the barrister of rubbers had no case
And we all knew just by her stance
She made a hobby out of taking off her pants

You always had to disapprove
And it became your final move
It never seemed to feel the same
So now youíve been pulled from the game

You always had to disapprove
And it became your final move
It never seemed to feel the same
So now youíve been pulled from the game

You were a dog, you were in heat
So now the cemetery is the place we meet
You down below, me up above
You are a corpse because you wanted to make love

We are gathered here to say goodbye and itís a shame
But the coach in the sky pulled you from the game
You were a kind if stubborn friend
But now youíre gone and thatís the end

You always had to disapprove
And it became your final move
It never seemed to feel the same
So now youíve been pulled from the game

You always had to disapprove
And it became your final move
It never seemed to feel the same
So now youíve been pulled from the game

It was good sex, there is no doubt
But now youíre knocking on the coffin to get out
You never bargained but now youíve paid
Because right or wrong you were just dying to laid




6. Reality Check

Do you think you have your life in check
Itís far from true
You deny from every breath you take
If it pleases you
You shop the wardrobe of your life
To see whatís right
Dress yourself for a sunny day
But now itís night

Unprepared for true reality, youíre feeling frail
Unprotected Principality, youíre looking pale
Youíre employed without a salary, youíre bound by fail

Donít have hearing, say I preach
Mock the meaning that I teach
Building bridges with no feet
But thereís no mercy in the street

The eggs in your basket have slipped from your hands
Unable to keep up with things that you should have done
The train youíve been riding is off of the tracks
You reach for support and find nothing but backs

The eggs in your basket have slipped from your hands
Unable to keep up with things that you should have done
The train youíve been riding is off of the tracks
You reach for support and find nothing but backs

The eggs in your basket have slipped from your hands
Unable to keep up with things that you should have done
The train youíve been riding is off of the tracks
You reach for support and find nothing but backs

The eggs in your basket have slipped from your hands
Unable to keep up with things that you should have done
The train youíve been riding is off of the tracks
You reach for support and find nothing but backs




7. Sunblock

I worship sand and stone
The mother earth and I alone
The mountains are flesh and bone
Environment to call my own

I see you technogreed
And hear a voice of vicious creed
Volcanoes start to bleed
And the species sway with need

I worship sand and stone
The mother earth and I alone
The mountains are flesh and bone
Environment to call my own

I see you technogreed
And hear a voice of vicious creed
Volcanoes start to bleed
And the species sway with need

Foreseeing ruined fate
Against the trees that you hate
Too soon itís far too late
To end the death you satiate

Every day thousands of acres of rain forest are torn down in the name of technology, destroying endangered species and plants like the periwinkle flower, which holds the cure for some kinds of childrenís leukaemia. Who gave us the right to destroy this planet?

The trees are sick and tired
Their patience has expired
Sickened by this mess
Homes made from their own flesh
They de-bone us alive
So the saplings can survive
Stitching skin to skin
A final unity of men
They make us a bleeding dome
To protect their only home
To save the mother earth
To pave way for the rebirth




8. Birdman

I feel my resolve strengthen
I se my arms lengthen
Iím gonna shed my skin
And fly away

Iím gonna grow wings
Iíve got to change things
I need to grow inside
And just move on

Iíve got to get out
There can be no doubt
I need to change inside
And just move on

My resolve grows strong
And my arms grow long
Iíll rip my skin off
And fly away

So now you know
Iíve got to go
Already gone
Iím moving on
