The Samaritan is sold and chained, and their story Bound, packaged, and advertised as fiction of a failure Our children are raised to be the best, and led to believe that to win, some must fail Where the starting point is a staggered line. Those who trip hammer their own nails People still die in the streets in the grip of night in our modern, prosperous age We’ve an abundance of what we could ever need but still keep it to ourselves History lies but still tells Nationality is tribalism on a global scale It’s a callousness culture Designed to buy out your love

Serve 01:24
Inner decay Hopelessness reigns in the grey nation-state Leaden footfalls from the cell to the grave Breaking apart every hope you once held in your gods Silence Silence Serve, and die unknown. The integrity of your soul and your body’s intertwined Breaking your back’s the first step to worming through your mind Break you ‘till all you can do is comply Low and alone No time or stamina to breathe outside your home Now your God is failing Drone on and drone No salvation but to remove all the ruling motherfuckers. Serve, unknown. Serve, unknown

Corrosion 01:24
Venomous in doctrine Propagandous priests Charlatans, silver-tongued and sulphur-lunged Their oaths broken By a willingness to deceive Like gospel to children Horse and sheep, Unaware and innocent A blasphemous, sinister machine that recycles your despair A public oppressed By the permeation of misinformation Swindling sage Peddling democratic corrosion Venomous and all Venomous and all so serious Venomous in doctrine Propagandous priests Charlatans, silver-tongued and sulphur-lunged Their oaths broken By a willingness to deceive Like gospel to children Horse and sheep, Unaware and innocent A blasphemous, sinister machine that’s just

Vacuum 01:30
Emerald gaze and a sanguine hunger Fingers twitching for carnal bliss Desecrate the body Feeding, always feeding Fetishise the blood and bone. False cries of empathy for the life you claim with your teeth Your integrity amounts to nothing at all.

Icon 04:57
Black abysmal hole Crusted walls Sodden floor Suffocating skin Burning lungs Ashen tongues Never knew anything else Surviving this life of hell is a curse, I beg for my doom Wails carve the air as knives meet necks. Overcome by a creeping lethargy Realise death was the point of it all. One person’s will amounts to nought On the global scale you’re a dust mote in darkness But human experience has never been on one person; it’s defined by us all. With the power to define the world, mould life and death and pick the difference Are we not responsible? The death of compassion is rife, and our meritocratic system backs the heartless These lives of labour have ground us down to dust inside, with no hope at all. With no leaders to trust, when the cruelest thirsts of men are accepted You yield, or you be your icon. Blood spilled in vain For reasons mundane Suffer to serve Respect deserved Inflictions patterns of pain From which we abstain A doctrine preserved To safeguard your Icon
