Track Name: CATACOMBS
Catacombs

All the films are burned away
Nothing but the ghosts remain
Open wounds and old world doctors
Something to remove the stain

Who will lead the way?
Looking for a new day.

R/ The world is calling
A nation is falling
Too many false prophets
The world is dying.
Track Name: GHOST TOWN POLITICS
Ghost Town Politics

Take away the fantasy law
Break away from the clown charades
Real on reel, a soldier cries
Who is left when the party dies
Justice is fickle when no one cares
Speak the truth if you dare
Ghost town politics and plastic smiles

Godless world—what have you heard?

Light a candle and call on Gabriel
The night patrol has lost all contact
Will they vote for a new day?
Raphael will lead the way
Pray for the fallen, weep for the crowd
Take the banner, look for the shroud
Ghost town politics and plastic smiles
Track Name: THE ECONOMY OF DECEPTION
The Economy of Deception

Games-war for the tabloids
Shame-it’s all just a gamble
Sanity-we’ll sell it to you...
Please...just sign right here.

Who are you looking for?

Vote-the robots are calling
Love-tell me a story.
Hate-the new narcotic?
Show-and you all tuned in.
You all tuned in .

Who are you looking for?
Track Name: EYE FOR A LIE
Eye for a Lie

Eye for a lie
Truce for a crowd
Shadows from the past
Poets sell tomorrow
Chasing nightmares
Eye for a lie


R/ World Inside
“What can we know?”

Serpent in a garden
Knowledge escapes
Gnostic Gorilla
Seeks the Divine
Eye for a lie

R/ World Inside
“What can we know?”
Track Name: DICTATORS AND HOLY FOOLS
Dictators and Holy Fools

The merchants of deception pitch their tents
Caravan of e-zombies and other lost souls
Mystics and Holy Fools unveil a Truth
Shock troopers take down a bewildered crowd
Celebrities and dictators feast on a beast

Come here you weary
Find solace in silence
Come here you downcast
Find a new voice
Avoid the plastic agents
Away with v-idols

Frozen from inside
The jester is playing foul
Paranoia – the new normal
Cyborg shamans and cosmetic narcosis
Beware...it’s all coming down

It’s all over
All worlds collapse
Angelic army
Destroy the wall of illusions
It’s all over
Track Name: UNLAWFUL TRIBUNAL
Unlawful Tribunal

Whitewashed tombs and scattered bones
Ancient rites for homeless nomads
Lone Wolf looking for his home

All the names on a plaster wall
Deliberations in temple halls
Take your place and light a votive
Martha, Martha what is the motive?

-search your heart
-shed a tear
-the storm is coming
-we shall not fear

R/ All our lives we seek that which is hidden
Angels lead us to be forgiven
Crown of Thorns, a Royal Priesthood
Author of life on a Throne of Wood

Humble Servant crushed the serpent’s head
Madmen and traitors live by the sword.
Wait until dawn, the rulers fall
A brainwashed crowd, waits for the call
From the palace they think they won
But Truth has come, an Only Son
On a Veil the face of Love
Through the dark sky, behold a dove
Track Name: THE SECULARIZATION OF ROBOTICS
Secularization of Robotics
Plug them in and say your prayers
Running from pale phantoms
Memories are up for rent
Chasing monkeys from their thrones


R: La la la la la
Hear the robots call our names
La la la la la
Trading wisdom for cheap games

Jaded pilgrims, broken wires
DNA of Eva Braun
Master Race has lost the battle
Cyborgs sing some old war songs

R/

Frederick weeps and Stalin sleeps
Bon Bon houses and rubber creeps
Plug them in and say your prayers
Say your prayers and plug them in.
Track Name: HABAKKUK
Habakkuk

Why oh God, why?

All this violence...all this hate.

Where are You in this darkness?

Why hide Your Face?

Our life is destroyed, our people lost.

Why, why oh God why?

Bones of the martyrs, cries from the desert.

Can you hear us? Save us from the pit.
