01 IDLE HANDS

(3:34)

Just a word, all it takes to set it off
Uncontrolled, all restraint has been lost

Absorbing more than I can stand
Of these self defeating unreal demands
Giving into frustrations command
The devil makes good use of idle hands

Overwhelming desire to react
I am too far gone, for ever turning back
Searching for something to lash out at
Turning inward, it is myself that I attack

The anger grows inside everyday
Unquenchable, I have become my own prey
From where has this rage been spawned
Been building deep inside for far too long
Forgotten memories buried and hidden
Creating my own emotional prison

Overwhelming desire to react
I am too far gone, for ever turning back
Searching for something to lash out at
Turning inward, it is myself that I attack

Can it be that I have lost
Control of my actions and my thoughts
Can it be that I have lost
Control of my actions and my thoughts

Overwhelming desire to react
I am too far gone, forever turning back
Searching for something to lash out at
Turning inward, it is myself that I attack

It is myself I attack
It is myself I attack
It is myself I attack
It is myself that I attack

02 THOUGHTS WITHOUT WORDS

(4:31)

Having awareness but no true sense of self
You find yourself enslaved in chains of earthly wealth
The unending chatter that plagues the mind
Confusion will be all that you find

Chaos reigns in an untamed mind
Still question all I know, advancing forward
This fallacy I have disowned
Still question all I know, advancing forward
This fallacy I have disowned

You must quench the yearning and false desire
Only balance will elevate us higher
You must train the body and the mind to serve
Envisioning thoughts without words

Chaos reigns in an untamed mind
Still question all I know, advancing forward
This fallacy I have disowned
Still question all I know, advancing forward
This fallacy I have disowned

Encaged in a world that fear creates
You must release yourself and liberate
Encaged in a world that fear creates
You must release yourself and liberate

Chaos reigns in an untamed mind
Still question all I know, advancing forward
This fallacy I have disowned
Still question all I know, advancing forward
This fallacy, in charge of all I own

I am seeking the way
I am seeking the way

I am seeking the way
I am seeking (seeking) the way (the way)

I will be seeking the way

03 DESTROYER OF SENSES

(2:52)

The sweet taste of self destruction
Waves of purity wash away the memories

I keep on falling off, I keep on falling off

The agents of change will dissolve
Into the fabric of our very existence

I keep falling off of this straight and narrow line
The calm embrace of a sedated mind
I keep falling off of this straight and narrow line
The calm embrace of a sedated mind

Giver of life, destroyer of senses
I invoke
I invoke
Giver of life, destroyer of senses
I invoke
Giver of life, destroyer of senses
I invoke

The sweet taste of self destruction
Waves of purity wash away the memories

I keep falling off of this straight and narrow line
The calm embrace of a sedated mind
I keep falling off of this straight and narrow line
The calm embrace of a sedated mind

05 STEPPING OUTSIDE THE CIRCLE

(5:25)

Here I go again
A vicious cycle without end
Seeking distance for security
A desperate act to remain free

A balance point cannot be found
This whole thing will come crashing down
Down, Down
My fear will drag you down
Into this world that I create
Your love for me has sealed your fate
Down, down
My fear will drag you down
Can I trust in what I feel
Praying that this time it's real

Feel the strain
All this times been spent in vain
My shame
Open wounds that still remain
Decay
As my faith is stripped away
You'll stray
The final price I have to pay

Digger in deeper still
The hollowness I yearn to fill
The story always ends the same
The cycle soon begins again

A balance point cannot be found
This whole thing will come crashing down
Down! Down
My fear will drag you down
Into this world that I create
Your love for me has sealed your fate
Down, down
My fear will drag you down
Can I trust in what I feel
Praying that this time it's real

Feel the strain
All this times been spent in vain
My shame
Open wounds that still remain
Decay
As my faith is stripped away
You'll stray
The final price I have to pay

Feel the strain
All this times been spent in vain
My shame
Open wounds that still remain
Decay
As my faith is stripped away
You'll stray
The final price I have to pay

Digger in deeper still
I have to pay
The hollowness I yearn to fill
The final price I have to pay
The story always ends the same
The final price I have to pay

Stepping outside the circle
Stepping outside the circle
Stepping outside the circle
Stepping outside the circle
Stepping

06 THE ART OF BALANCE

(4:46)

I am sheltered by this apathy
Nothing left to do but torch the day
Retreating deeper into my mind
What is it that I hope to find

This is the aftermath in me
Tendency to keep it all inside
A fool's disguise

I am strangled by this sympathy
Empty words with no meaning
Must release myself into the void
All illusions must be destroyed

This is the aftermath in me
Tendency to keep it all

How dare you compromise the balance of our lives
Excuses you devise, an internal suicide
I struggle to survive, a perfect goal for which to strive
Ignorance cannot disguise the balance of our lives

Hiding the meaning of
Hiding the meaning of

Hiding the meaning of
Hiding the meaning of

How dare you compromise the balance of our lives
Excuses you devise, an internal suicide
I struggle to survive, a perfect goal for which to strive
Ignorance cannot disguise the balance of our lives

07 MYSTERY OF ONE SPIRIT

(5:10)

Inspiration is the light of the mind
Revelation, the meaning behind
Clouds of sacred incense, allowing us to rise
Cast away all our earthly ties

Without a veil of tears
Journey of the magi
Cascading, fulfillment of our mind
Your cowardice is fuel for this deception
Your vanity, corruption of your soul

Cannot defend lies without end
I'll smash your trend, living to be free
Cannot defend lies without end
I will pretend no more

Smashing through the doors of your perception
Realization of a world beyond the tangible
Ancestral wisdom, timeless inspiration
The mystery of one spirit

I create the light, I create the darkness
Author alike of prosperity and woe
Their god is but a symptom of their power
Another tool they use to dominate and control

Without a veil of tears
Journey of the magi
Cascading, fulfillment of our mind
Your cowardice is fuel for this deception
Your vanity, corruption of your soul

Cannot defend lies without end
I'll smash your trend, living to be free
Cannot defend lies without end
I will pretend NO MORE

Smashing through the doors of your perception
Realization of a world beyond the tangible
Ancestral wisdom, timeless inspiration
The mystery of one spirit
Smashing through the doors of your perception
Realization of a world beyond the tangible
Ancestral wisdom, timeless inspiration
The mystery of one spirit

08 THE IDIOT BOX

(4:30)

Staring forward with vacant eyes
Imagination cannot survive
Misinformation and compromise
These televised conditioned lies

Create a system of belief
Heartless purveyors of deceit
Seems clear to me you've never known me
Doubt everything you've ever shown me

Images flash by in waves
What to buy and what you'll save
All the products that you never craved
You've become another slave

Create a system of belief
Heartless purveyors of deceit
Seems clear to me you've never known me
Doubt everything you've ever shown me

All the lies that you told
I can not be bought or sold
I won't fit into your mold
I can not be bought or sold

Rise, and break away from the system
Rise, and crush the voices in your head
Rise

All the lies that you told
I can not be bought or sold
I will not fit into your mold
I can not be bought or sold

I want back what you stole from me

10 A FIRE IN BABYLON

(7:30)

A spark will soon ignite, burning flame of jah light
A fire that will purify, wipe away the city's lies
Reducing fortunes into ash, tear apart your useless mask
Nowhere left for you to hide, damned for your foolish pride

Chant down Babylon
Chant down Babylon

Revelations time is now
Your world will crumble to the ground
Final judgment now has come
This is the Armageddon

A eulogy for the modern man
Enslaved and devoured by the strength of it's demands
A eulogy for the modern man
Hide your head and cower or be struck down where you stand

To advance in truth and rights, to advance in love and light
The path of righteousness is leading, the songs of I and I are pleading
In the grace of Mt. Zion with the strength of a lion
All barriers shall be broken, all hearts alight and open

Chant down Babylon
Chant down Babylon

Revelations time is now
Your world will crumble to the ground
Final judgment now has come
This is the Armageddon

A eulogy for the modern man
Enslaved and devoured by the strength of it's demands
A eulogy for the modern man
Hide your head and cower or be struck down where you stand

A fire burns in Babylon
A fire burns in Babylon
A fire burns in Babylon
A fire burns in Babylon

A fire burns in Babylon
A fire burns in Babylon
A fire burns in Babylon
A fire burns in Babylon

A fire burns in Babylon, your world will burn
Your world will burn

11 WELCOME TO THE MACHINE

(5:05)

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine
Where have you been
It's alright we told you where you've been
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time
Provided with toys and scouting for boys
You bought a guitar to punish your ma
You didn't like school, you know you're nobody's fool

So welcome to the machine
Welcome to the machine

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine
What did you dream
It's alright we told you what to dream
You dreamed of a big star, he played a mean guitar
He always ate in the steak bar, he loved to drive in his Jaguar

So welcome to the machine
Welcome to the machine

Welcome to the machine
