about

This album came from our fear that we are moving further away from the society we need. We have the wealth to provide safety, security, and prosperity to everyone but not the will. Our leaders create cities, jobs, and police forces to isolate us. We pray this album will allow you to appreciate the destiny we share and imagine a new, better world.


We'd like to thank our moms, Seth Engel, Nate Amos, Cold City Horns, Mark Fisher, Pankaj Mishra, and freedom fighters around the globe trying to tear down this system and build the world we need.

Track Name: Worn Away
Out of place again
Tossed across the floor
Out of sorts

Stuck behind a screen
The thickest pane of glass
Pixels fade out

In the meantime, daytime, real time
Always wanting it to be more real

In debt addicted always chasing ghosts
Eyes wide open, worn away

Out of touch again
Torn and wearing down
So far away

Uncertain circling
Cyclobenzeprine
Set it off

In the meantime, daytime, real time
Always wanting it to be more real

In debt addicted always chasing ghosts
Eyes wide open, wearing away

After this after cigarettes burn through curtains
Left behind a blur

Always this, after smoke drifts clear
Through the window
Always needing more
Track Name: Land Disappear
When will you see
Run to the light forever in hope
To leave when you say good bye

under neath
water fills the ground
lifting
a land to disappear

out of reach
stealin without sound
spinning
into air


All i see
Your eyes breaking up
In front
Of me to disappear

All i hear
Hundreds running up
To meet us
Find me here


Why Cry
Why Lie
Always all near

Why Cry
Why Lie
No fear
When we know the end
Track Name: Shame on You
you’ve taken it too far
shame on you

fall forward cut your hands
thoughts cut short

you scream like all the voices
you never heard
losing touch

…….

can't catch your breath
out of air

ticking clock - burning flame - racing to - meet the end

think of all the time
no more following


ill take it all
everything

holding out - from my hands - to your mouth - and back again

breaking every line
end of promising


you collapse
no memory
black & gray


breaking every line
promises behind

no one left now on your side
our time
Track Name: Shut It Down
do you believe we’re alive
swing of the baton
on and on and on
taste of metal sound

can you believe when you see
broken bottles open wound
black and golden black and blue


our blood is nervous running fast
faces fleeing sirens pass
all around, the towers last


Every city under heel
you are only tools
using us while being used

every city
they are
ruling over empty blocks, prisons filling, empty schools


our blood is nervous running fast
faces fleeing sirens pass
all around, the towers last

citadel, cannibal, capital
look above, open mouth, lord of all
citadel, cannibal, capital


do you believe we’re alive?
