The new kid on the block is a robot Counting the steps as he goes To a destination no one knows The young guy is a steamy punk Hothead with a lust for power But he is popular Follow and lay down his track Time for departure And you must come Or breathe the dust of my success Gasoline veins Joints of steel as a frame for power I am alive I stand as the tallest tower Follow me Fire is my locomotion Smoke and rust Breathing out my own corrosion Old kid on the block is a monster But a gentle one Heart of gold, still of metal Burnt and old with leaking veins Do I hear some nervous laughter? As if it's my tail I'm after A machine that is primitive Created in your own image

Welcome to the carnival of madness Where the children die Merry-go-round at the speed of sound Flies away then hits the ground Asteroid moving through sky Burning up or flashing by Chronos at the wheel of zodiac Revs the engine fast and loud The reaper comes for you And he’s got work for two Ask away and he might stay Question marks that will delay Dead die young Why do we care if the Center of the sun is hollow? Dead die young When in presence of a Closed mind that the body will follow I set down the path of doubt Do I know me in and out? Cards in hand don’t win the game Eyes glow red right across from you He’ll get you too In the spot I threw crown Grows the seed that I put down Rose of death, the ground is rich Vice and virtue, what is which? Dead die young Why do we care if the Center of the sun is hollow? Dead die young When in presence of a Closed mind that the body will follow Dead die young Drowned in the waters of Conceit and mind corrosion Dead die young When in essence you are Alive but your soul has no motion

Gold Rush 03:31
We will send ourselves To the riches that are down the road Flatten the ground The creation of another node From which we’ll yet again Lose track, but until then Dig the grave Into darkness we descend To all that is new We are to be fooled You and I have been ruled Stone we crush Welcome down to the golden rush Pick your tool and swing away All in vain Gaining less the more we drain No need to hush We all know this is a gold rush How does one win the race In a distance that is growing? Inflation But there’s no wealth in knowing I am a stream you see For all your greed to be Reflected in the ore And it’s my time to shine
4.
Transcend the notion Your will to ascend Witness the tragedy The remnant of your disposition Retaliation dictates our every action The itch to appealing not to scratch Why can't I change it? Everything comes to pass Am I to understand that the weakness Is part of our mind? Witness the process The violent descent Your need for remedy And hatred for your opposition Retaliation dictates our very actions The story reappearing ‘til all is past Our will be done Sanity is fleeting Reducing our minds to rubble

Wolf Tank 03:52
Sleeper turns around Awaken but not by sound The earth is quietly rumbling But the earth is in his head Landmasses moving slowly In the sky the stars align All in all; a change in tactics To having none of them Sailor of the seven seas Approaching the shores of disease Cares not of navigation Just made his own way Think first before we collide Wolf tank is by my side Destined to grab your attention My friend from a different dimension Careful descent into madness The prevention of sober sadness The embrace of Janus And Wolf Tank, leading the stride Sleeper was lost and found The path to go around In the end, himself unlearn Twist and turn on a restless ocean Sailor of the seven seas Strays away from the increase Of hugging the brainwaves of ease to predict Keeping feet both dry and wet

I keep walking in abandoned trenches I wake up in the haze surrounding me As something long forgotten, erased by nauseous fumes As I am forced to deal with this The numbing pain just shuts me down And so my past will be catching up to me Diagnosed to oblivion over one petty step Bloodshot eyes locking in on my disguise And you have always seen me this way And so what difference could it make? To be erased by the new day So I'll be well upon my way The present pass around me And the tide keeps washing in on me Like dunes of sand; I'll wash away with time The bearer of a lonely quest I've tried to find the bridge from dog to man And so my past will be catching up to me
7.
Rise up, minions of our destiny We may partake in some bloodshed We redshift from this earth Heads up; it might be of your own But in quantum immortality We behave in every way One quest to find and show What's in your mind when you let it go? Just let it go Join the legion free from death Chained to fate none the less Burn the earth and then we rest All things benign, an eagle in sunshine Or the outline of vulture closing in? Flip the dime, but we are split in time Do we vanquish or survive? Coin Flip Omen We are missionaries of chaos Ideals made up of nonsense You would look the part Consider this an invitation One quest to find and show What's in your mind when you let it go? Just let it go Brave new world inside of this Alive in death, turn to bliss Forget what there's to reminisce
8.
I would to pray for my indifference to shield And now that it's lost I run to hide So I can't wait for the end To set us free from the void of Our ignorance that runs much deeper Than we'd like to admit Slowly learning, not concerning Not even enough to care To put ourselves on the line Down on his knees His eyes locked into the distance Won’t touch the seed that remain Yelling that greed is god From dead remains As the sand falls between our fingers And as our reasoning fails I turn to embrace the end You would say that it would never be enough Even if I would try, it would all be the same And in this part I remain Until it proves to be different
9.
Execution of an already dead dog Guillotine falls towards the ground Gravity takes no prisoners We reach for the summit But the rock keeps rolling down I am cursed but so are they Who stand in the way of a landslide I could be anything So I became a god But we are all entwined By the curses of divinity Lesser gods on the horizon out for blood They bring thunder, world goes under Animosity will take the path of least resistance Cerberus, fight for me My leash is grinding your throat My will is your command We bring death upon the land Top dog kills the underdog But a beast in the end You will find that there is not Much more room to ascend Lesser gods on the horizon out for blood They bring thunder, world goes under A day like any for the mortal A child with a concave glass and a critter below Rolling thunder, strike the under Animosity will take the path of least resistance
10.
Thought I was different but not by enough And I'm facing this darkness with my head in the sand Your hands clean and your conscience clear Wish you could strike the blow and be rid of this fear I'll try for penance but you know that it won't be for me No, it won't my own My devotions still carries me home I don't care about the cost My ambitions rules the fall I want to drag you all down with me Through it all The shred of sanity was lost So you could walk along the line And may you claim this as your own funeral I made it through mine As I was reckless my ambitions were cruel Yet the actions of justice were mine to direct With your eyes forward make the sentence known Make the axes fall and let our blood be spilled When all is said and all is done When you have all and I have none I close my eyes out of fear, black out For what I've done for my cause; it's mine and mine alone Wait till you see what I left An open wound, a reason to heal
