Track Name: Tesseract
There are only 12 dimensions conceivable by humans
Who's to say there isn't infinite outside this realm that we cannot comprehend
We need to think outside the square
We need to think outside the cube
We need to think into the tesseract

There could be beings in your house that you don't know about
There could be a deity above that watches every day
Watches everyday
Watches every single day

We are made from a fragile matter;
Biological species by nature
Some of us have ventured out of our simple minded train of thinking
Those who do usually go insane
(Cannot grasp these concepts)
Those who do usually go insane
(All the rest are shamans)

There could be beings in your house that you don't know about
There could be a deity above that watches every day
Watches every day
Watches every day

We need to think outside the square
We need to think outside the cube
We need to think into the tesseract

The 4th dimension's the next step
In our understanding
Break down the barriers of precepts
and pagan religion
Track Name: Ballad of Stalph Readman
(4:30 AM:) after a night of drinking
I try to stumble home and on the way I stop to rest at a
(Local Sporting club.) As I take a seat I hear a voice behind me,
a man then stands beside me

With a short introduction he offers a cigarette and
after I reject I notice the tears in his
eyes. He says he wants to die and tonight his only
option is suicide

Now you need to know, I want to help you
I just dont know what to do, or what to say
The will to live can decompose so quickly
Life is just a clock that ticks away

He tells me that he once had a family
And around he had assets in many properties
But he traded it all for another girl
But she betrayed him then left with nothing
He could not return to his wife and kids
A tragic ending

Now you need to know, I want to help you
I just dont know what to do, or what to say
The will to live can decompose so quickly
Life is just a clock that ticks away

Thoughts race through my mind but they are draped in fear
Anything that I say will fall upon deaf ears
Take me away, I want to leave
I only pray you surpass this tragedy

Haaaaaaaa

This is a god damn disgrace I can't believe
Please spare this man and return him to his family

Life is just a clock that ticks away
Track Name: Grimace
You were told in your youth
Money didn't grow on trees
Well at might as well have done;
We have all been decieved
It holds zero value;
Materialised from debt
The only method giving it worth:
Contstraining others you've never met

Now I find myself in denial
How can any of this be true?
Putting everyone in exhile
It'll all come crashing down

When the fat cats lose their mind
When the system falls apart
What'll happen to man kind
When it all comes crashing down?

When the leaders cannot find
A solution to their crimes
It will all be out of sight
And we'll finally see the light

(REST) All are worshiping the wrong god
This whole charade is so absurd
Those who hold the puppet strings
Are the federal reserve
(BEAT 1) Every polition, king and queen
Under the powerful thumb
Of power hungry business men
And they're happy we're all dumb

Now I find myself in denial
How can any of this be true?
Putting everyone in exhile
It'll all come crashing down

When the fat cats lose their mind
When the system falls apart
What'll happen to man kind?
When it all comes crashing down

When the leaders cannot find
A solution to their crimes
It'll all be out of sight
And we'll finally see the light

We'll sail away
Far from this mess
Escape reality
And find salvation in another place

All is not lost
We can revolt this surpression
expose this curuption

Bring it all down
Rip it apart
Bring it all down
Rip it apart
Bring it all down
Track Name: Concrete Females
I'm waiting patiently but all attempts are unsuccessful
I just want to be pulled into the abyss that beckones ever closer
I try to jump but racing thoughts delay me every second
This desperation is dominating. (AM I GOING INSANE?)

Counting the hours
Suffering awaits me
Counting the hours
Suffering awaits

Figures laughing
Pointing their (FINGERS AT ME EVERY TIME)
I'll show them all
Keep a- (SSURING YOURSELF BUDDY)

I won't let you go
(THIS IS ALL JUST A SICK JOKE, IS IT NOT?)
I won't let you go
(I'VE PAID MY DUES JUST LET IT GO)
I won't let you go until you fall

Counting down the hours
This is not a dream, a fucking dream
Track Name: Criswell Predicts
For all empirical truths you,
you've failed to take heed
believing in falsity
break creed

disregard your nationalist
iconoclast of honest men
marching under tyrant's bedlam
you'll find the idolized

disregard your ignorant
iconoclasm bring us truth
fighting every tyrant's bedlam
never be blind again

take leave or leave your post you're
bound by twisted remorse

your job, worldly assets,
all bought with debt attached
revolt and then you'll know
what true possession entails

disregard your nationalist
iconoclast of honest men
marching under tyrant's bedlam
you'll find the idolized

disregard your ignorant
iconoclasm bring us truth
fighting every tyrant's bedlam
never be blind again

and here we meet you
witnessing the collapse of all wealth
breathing the last of
a malevolent world..

follow me iconoclastically
follow me to the shore of our freedom's embrace,
and breathe
Track Name: Symphony of Dalvador Sali: I. Sub-conscious thoughts/ II. Surreal Landscapes/ III. On paper, on screen
Sub conscious thoughts drip onto paper
Melting clocks and empty spaces
Vacant planes, distorted faces

What's not there
Now comes to life

What's not there now comes to life
Promoting us to think twice
These thoughts don't cross average minds

Minds, minds.

Juxtaposing dreams and concepts
Parallels and paradigms
Crisp colours, these figures now come to life

Life, they now have life.

We need to dig beneath the surface
Need to bring out what's not there we
What's not there
What's not there!

These surreal landscapes are there
Locked away inside our minds
But no one ever seems to think this way
All rely on drugs to think this way

Some put these thoughts on paper
(The only way we can truly see)
Some project these thoughts on screens
(The only way we can truly see)
