Track Name: Apep
ever since I came alive
ever since I woke up inside
I thought the sun was coming up again
but it really was goin' down

you thought the sun was coming up again
when it was really goin' down
it shimmered smiles cross the water, my friend
you had every reason to frown

septic in the reservoir
septic in the reservoir
you saw but never recognized
the sepsis in the reservoir
Track Name: Many Speaking in Dreams
brought down the flame upon the earth for mortals
this they desired in vain
they strove to reach the highest honor
they rendered the course of their steps full of trouble

they gather knowledge only from the mouths of others
and pursue things rather from their own judgment
it has already prevailed in the past times
the fear of punishment poisons
and injury involves everyone
security they desired in vain

on which shoulders would you lay the authority?
and who of us here shall claim perfection?
many speaking in dreams
and who of us here shall claim perfection?
many speaking in dreams

they're said to have revealed secrets
to have published to the world
long concealed atrocities
and for them who sought the revisionist past
was it not revised?
the past they thought they knew
the past they thought they knew
what caused the scatter in the first place?
the split of the tongues
the split of the tongues
what caused all the clamour within?
and why aren't you screaming?
why aren't you screaming?
Track Name: Circle of Life
now I will grow up
never to return
to a Disney story
I'd rather throw up
old new age returns
what's there to worry
nothing new under the sun
nothing new under the sun
wake up
it will not go on forever

time says its a temporary road to heaven
the world is entrenched in darkness, its inside us
I won't ignore the spirit of believing in a heaven
in a heaven

you and I
the common folk
in life pods now breath through face masks
fractured wires in the wheel spoke
caved the frame that caused the bike crash
alumina flakes inducing lung choke
slowed the flow of the crop's cash
it sprayed down from the sky
in hopes of holding off tides from an ice cap splash
what a $#@%ing joke
what a $#@%ing joke

seven heads, seven nations
ten crowns, ten kings
so many questions still
I shake the eight ball
Beast's hide of leopard furs
retrieved a lions head
teeth missing unidentified
walks like a bear and kicks herself
angry at the lion
angry at the lion
Track Name: Philosophers of Fire
wishing glory for themselves
unto the heights of honor
men do make their pathway terrible
even when once they reach it
envy like the thunderbolt
so at times will smite and scorn
and therefore kings are slain
scepters lay turned to dust
gold thrones lay turned to dust
crowns so splendid on their heads
lay bloody underfoot
of the proletariat
trampled beneath the rabble heel
still each man sought unto himself
dominion and supremacy
dominion and supremacy

since the earliest times
man has venerated the element
in the flame something resembles
the volatile fire that dwells within
mystery of the radiant energy of fire
was beyond his ability to understand
yet he felt it's power
yet he felt it's power

set huddled in the cold
in the darkness of the night
behold lightning struck a branch a flame
as it was the story remains
of the sought but never found

they guarded the secrets from the others
on and on, the pattern to this day
mystery of the radiant energy of fire
was beyond his ability to analyze
yet he felt it's power
yet he felt it's power

burn
burn
to them the sun was the only thing that could bring us warmth
so they burnt the homes of their enemies
and with the aid of heat
they tempered steel
making swords and armor
and used these instruments to kill each other

they not only lied to you
they lied to themselves
they not only deceived you
they deceived each other
and the snake sheds it's skin again
and the snake sheds it's skin again
Track Name: Clarion
they scan the past for error
to know what it all means
soothsayers of society
identify the enemy

fingers point on with terror
look, is that an AR-15?
the junkies of truth and sobriety
tell us where you see the enemy
look, is that an AR-15?
the junkies of truth and sobriety

a sliver of truth lays some place
against which many wars are waged
will you grow up
will you grow up

cognitive weapons out from the TV
the bogeyman's runnin' around greedy
soothsayers of society
identify the enemy
oh yeah

can't stop the fire like the flood came
can't stop the fire

a sliver of truth lays some place
against which many wars are waged
will you grow up
will you grow up

can't stop the fire like the flood came
can't stop the desire to watch the sky cave
(to watch the sky cave)
(to watch the sky cave)
can't stop the fire like the flood came
can't stop the desire

fingers point on with terror
look, is that an AR-15?
the junkies of truth and sobriety
tell us where you see the enemy
look, is that an AR-15?
the junkies of truth and sobriety
Track Name: Michael
to project the big idea
and display to all the idol image effect
the very act of expose
beguiles the susceptible mind subject
he's up to his eyeballs in that which eats him alive
who will save him from drowning?

sons of the old new sovereign dreamers
had you seen it coming like a shotgun wedding
engaged to the old moon romancin' the sun
this witness runs far from that junction
but who could run from the sunrise?
but who could run from the sunrise?

the angel's hand threw it, the aroma
at the hot sun
could it be the first clarion
if fire rains hail then yes indeed, son
'til the wars come home
how could I stand silent?
'til the wars come home
the living water's so much more attractive
after immersion
the living water's so much more attractive
after immersion

sons of the old new sovereign dreamers
had you seen it coming like a shotgun wedding
engaged to the old moon romancin' the sun
this witness runs far from that junction
but who could run from the sunrise?
but who could run from the sunrise?
