Lyrics

Left Behind

Written By: Indolent

Tie your children to the ground
Fill 'em with self-delusion
Make 'em feel there's no way out
With a sugar coated lie
Time is quickly winding down
All innocence has been raped
Never contradict what's told
If you do you know that you'll burn

Burn

This street that's paved in gold
Is right on course to a brick wall
There is no forgiveness
All that exists is all you left behind

All you let be

Guide your children to the crown
Just believe in what you won't see
Visions bigger than your own
These words present more doubt

Doubt

This street that's paved in gold
Is right on course to a brick wall
There is no forgiveness
All that exists is all you left behind

All you let be

Tie your children to the ground
Follow the path to nowhere
Make 'em feel there's no way out
No need to escape when all is planned
Time is quickly winding down
This shining light's been burnt out
Never contradict what's told
If you do you know that you'll burn

Burn

This street that's paved in gold
Is right on course to a brick wall
There is no forgiveness
All that exists is all you left behind

All you let be
All you left behind
All you let be

A.I.

Written By: Indolent

A lowly stop sign compels you to move
A blatant contradiction it takes to prove
Your life, your worth, your death, your birth
No chance for comprehension when bad timing is impeccable

Despicable

Burn your mind
Avoid Insanity
Of a bleak existence in reality
Surrealism inspires truth
Familiar places all brand new

Do we bother mentioning the elephant in the room?
There's never been a better time to pull the wool over our eyes
Ignore the lies policing lives
Search inside for substance
Don't believe and never trust

I never trust

Burn your mind
Avoid Insanity
Of a bleak existence in reality
Surrealism inspires truth
Familiar places all brand new

Grow

Written By: Indolent

So here we are again
Back where it all began
With hope on where we're going
And doubts on whether we'll make it
These eclectic dreams in my head
Bleed out and on and on again

On and on again

Every barrier in our path
No signs of turning back
It's all in our hands right now
No future set in stone
These eclectic dreams in my head
Bleed out and on and on again

On and on again

Breathing in and out
I'm drinking in this moment
Breathing in and out
I'm flushing out the past
Breathing in and out
With every breath I'm taking
Breathing in and out
I drinking in a new life

So here we are again
Back where it all began
It's all in our hands right now
No future set in stone
These eclectic dreams in my head
Bleed out and on and on again

On and on again

Breathing in and out
I'm drinking in this moment
Breathing in and out
I'm flushing out the past
Breathing in and out
With every breath I'm taking
Breathing in and out
I drinking in a new life

Here And Gone

Written By: Indolent w/ Tim Allen

Overdose on serotonin
Wide asleep, but keep on dreaming
Hear the sounds, but words are faded
Skull face contended
Animated entertainment
Sweet distraction holds ignorance
Here but gone and always running
From the situation

All alone
Here with you
All alone

Give yourself a shot
Give it all away
Hold it to the light
Shadowing the day

The machine that keeps me breathing
Final thoughts upon the ceiling
The conclusion beyond reaching
Pull the plug and let me be
Though I'm gone I'm never leaving
Your burden now you keep on pleading
Thought this was a heart worth beating
I don't feel a thing

All alone
Here with you
All alone

Keep it in the dark
Hiding where it's safe
Those who don't remember
Are doomed to feel the pain

Take all of me
You can have it
I don't need this anymore

She was just a spark
She wants to be the flame
But here in the shadows
She'll never find her way
Can't give her what she wants
Can't give it all away
Those who don't remember
Are doomed to feel the pain

Keep it in the dark
Hiding where it's safe
Those who don't remember
Are doomed to feel the pain

Take all of me
You can have it
I don't need this anymore

Salvation Street

Written By: Indolent

Exception with out even questioning
No logic within your serenity
Blind to the truth that's in the way
Follow the lies that please the mind
Free thinking forbidden uniting lives
Keep your eyes closed and dream away

It's easy to judge with god on your side
With god on your side
Take a knife to my back and redesign
No need to resist when the taste is so sweet
The taste that's bittersweet
Salvation won't come when you fall to his feet

Beautiful gifts all go down the drain
You gave it all up for religion's gain
It's easy to live when you can't wait to die
Post human is life a monopoly?
Forever forsaken to disbelief
Time to remove, time to deny

It's easy to judge with god on your side
With god on your side
Take a knife to my back and redesign
No need to resist when the taste is so sweet
The taste that's bittersweet
Salvation won't come when you fall to his feet

Guilty Blood

Written By: Indolent

Of all the reasons that we hate
Of all the times we've fought free will
While making sense of our motivations
Guilty blood has been spilt
Bible is our education
To take another dollar bill
Beyond our means a price we pay
Writing checks we void next day

So often occurs a plan
But rarely comes a truth
Countless shots in the dark
Countless murdered youth
Rapidly we decline
But even faster we multiply
Choking on the seeds of fate
Until the end the cycle stays

Under the table and under your thumb
Ten million barrels for one megaton

Under the table and under your thumb
Ten million barrels for one megaton
