Track Name: Terms of Enrampagement
They refuse to see how far we’ve fallen
We can’t be anymore than they’ve permitted
Our worlds have changed
We are no longer who we used to be
Individualism is becoming a unified entity
Suggestions of change fall upon deaf ears
A blind eye turned on god given freedoms
The taste of death lingers in your mouth
Touch of the reaper, you’re in his grasps
This rampage
Is the only thing that will save our fates from oppression
The vacuum of rage is never ending
The fury we feel is all we need
The pain we felt is enough inspiration
To see how red is the blood you’ll bleed
We’ve brought shame
Upon our forefathers graves
And the only chance for redemption is to
Fight for your life
Let go of all your secrets (Theres blood in my eyes, and I can’t see)
Give in to the new salvation (What my culture is doing to me)
Through slavery we are reborn (Losing my sense of self worth)
Truth is found in integration (Liberty must be my curse)
But like hell we will surrender
With revolution in our hearts we shall not falter
Subjugated to an endless cycle of slaughter
Like hell we will surrender
Break out the call to arms
This is an all out war
All of our brothers have been laid to rest
And so we march against these heathens, I detest
Flags dripping wet with the tears of man
Armies of able vs legions of Cain
Look where we are, right where we began
Alone and scared on a desolate plain
Wars over
But there was no solution, no armastice
No happy ending, No valiant heroes to be given medals
All due to our ignorant
Terms of Enrampagement
Track Name: Crimes Of Passion
Your Majesty, I commend thee
Your viciousness matched only by your bloodlust
The sheer senselessness of it all drives me mad with grief
So if I'm damned at least you're coming along for the ride
Since a little boy I admired the nobility
Dreaming of the days when I could end my families poverty
Day in and day out I would look upon his majesty
Gallantly riding his noble steeds backed up by Calvary
Everything changed one fateful day when a prophecy was made
That the ruler, once the slaver, soon would become the enslaved
Maddened and drunk on power, the king sought out a way to avoid
This catastrophic class war that threatened to usurp his throne
Rounding up every family residing in the slums
He murdered them in cold blood
Little did he know, he created an assassin
when he took away the only thing that tied me to this kingdom
Now instead of dreaming of a day when I become king
I lay awake dreaming of the day I destroy him
I feel I should start with the raping of his princess
Let him experience what he did to his servants
Blood will run down
like water to mountains
Tonights the night Tonight your life
Tonight I take everything you love away from you
When you look upon your altar you will see your precious daughter
and queen bound and writhing helplessly trying to scream out warnings
But by then it'll be too late and as you lay there bleeding out
The last thing that you see will be your whole family dead...and defiled
Everything will have finally come full circle
Now my families afterlives can be carefree and peaceful
Yet as I begin to walk away I feel a realization
Vengeance now complete, I sit and contemplate
My actions tonight that have led me to such a place
Though my intentions true and my revenge well earned
I cannot help but feel as if I made a mistake
When I found that letter
The order came from another
Done by another, murder's my color
Now a killer it doesn't matter
Works not done yet, I have nothing left
I will find him, The High Priest
Track Name: Some Men Just Want To Watch The World Burn
We are the victims of
Irrational martyrdom
Cursed by the past generations
Doomed to burn out like dying suns
Born into hatred of
Any living soul different than us
Scriptures taught and bastardized
to train us against compromise
Xenophobia
is an acceptable course of action
when someone else's
beliefs contradict yours
Scared into submission
Forced into patriotism
Warned against revolution
Individualism is dead
When the towers fell, our morals fell with them
And genocide was no longer taboo, but rather state sanctioned
We're regressing back to the antiquated methods of 1939
But the fallible logic and hate filled tirades are yours, not mine
These transgressions shall not prevail
and you and your yippe-ki-yays can all go to hell
We the people has become bastardized
But I won't allow the rest of us to be subsidized
Mission Accomplished
Destruction of our brothers
Thank God for Bullets
We will be the children lost to time
Thank your god for causing our demise
Then thank yourself for denying us life
We will be the children lost to time
Track Name: The Ballad Of Brent Galifinakis (Mastodon Cover)
I think that someones trying to sue me
By fucking us up and destroying our cred
We are playing this in a different tuning
And you'll notice that I sound nothing like Brent
Smallz made us changed the lyrics
Luigi is scared they'll deport him
I thought hangover didn't need a sequal
The first accomplished it's goal on it's own
We need more words to fill in this next line
(Indistinguishable gurgling)
Jazz needs to find a home
Damien should try to get a job
This song is not called Blood and Thunder
Because that name is trademarked
I bet you would've bought this album
If we didn't ruin this song
But how the hell can you hear this
this doesn't make much sense
These lyrics created a paradox
On to the last funny chorus part
We still love Mastodon
Just not enough to pay royalties
Track Name: Secrets
Love is black, and you're a lost cause
Your life's in remission, and it's my fault
Without me, you'd've never gotten this far
So it's only right that you hear this part
For so many years I've taken all your bull shit
Lies and mistrust, I've had enough of it
I looked ahead, saw the end, so you're full of it
I just hate the fact that its come to this!
Now you've gone, to the arms of another
To be consoled by none other
3 years of my life down the drain
I'll make sure the rest of yours is the same
"Life goes on" was all you could say
3 little words cause so much pain
Fear is true, I see it in your eyes
The realization that your life is now mine
)Run still, your life will
grow old, solitarily
Cold as ice my heart no longer
Why were we only a secret
We could see the earth curve
How could this joy turn to pain so quicklly
Now I know Where I stood
Used me up and
Wore me out then
Danced in my head
Left me for dead
No emotions
You repress them
All your secrets
Only I know them
Track Name: Awakening To Desolation
I've heard many things as the days roll on
From planet smashers to detonations of atomic bombs
Great wars covering the land in blood
The very sun blocked out by ash and soot
The return of the Christ, or his counterpart
come to rob us of soul, empathy and heart
2012 doomsday apocalypse
But to me it all sounds like a load of shit
But enlightenment, the idea that everyone will awaken within
a period of unmatched harmony, mutual understanding and unity
Wouldn't it be nice? Everybody holding hands as we join the light
But what if when we enter out we don't like what we find?
Insanity brought on by joining of our minds
Awakening to Desolation
Awakening to Desolation
Imagine every fucked up thought you've ever had, multiplied by
Every murderer and psychopath alive
Schizophrenia lived out for the rest of time
Omniscience has a price, visuals solidify, heaven and hell unify, into one
Individualism gives way to hive mind
Losing our way over unyielding skies
The vast landscape of time stretched out before us
Will we like what we find?
An unending stream of every souls consciousness
Will we like what we find?
Armageddon comes alive when we decide
Armageddon comes alive
Armageddon comes alive when we decide
Armageddon comes alive
Track Name: Worst Bedtime Story Ever
Unprovoked war, funded by fear tactics
History henceforth will be written in civilian blood
But no one cares about ramifications
What’s a billion lives when the moneys good
Our voices will be drowned out under missile fire
We have no say in the matter, the speaker does not recognize you
Discussions closed, the doors are shut, start barricading your homes
Don’t be surprised when they’re busting down your door
We always knew it would come to this
Oh ignorance, how I miss your bliss
There will be no winner, there will be no peace
There will be no order, the fighting won’t cease
The earth will be torn apart by our arrogance
No warning will be heeded, we’ve squandered our final chance
Fear these days
Fear these days
Fear these days, and prepare yourselves
Logic is dead, where it was now chaos dwells
Don’t bother pleading for your lives
You won’t be needing it with a bullet in your eyes
Fear these days, and prepare yourselves
Logic is dead, where it was now chaos dwells
Don’t bother pleading for your lives
You won’t be needing it with a bullet in your eyes
Listen closely, Do you hear the trumpets in the night?
Who would’ve guessed that out of anyone, the Mormons would be right?
It’s kind of funny, in a fucked up twisted kind of way
Imagine all the facebook statuses that you would’ve seen....if not for the EMP
Might as well laugh, after all it’s all just a vicious gag
It’s all just a vicious gag
It’s all just a vicious gag
It’s all just a vicious gag
It’s all just a vicious gag
It’s all just a vicious gag
Track Name: Occupy Endor
)We are
Rebels
Sworn to
Defeat the Empire
Blow up the death star
Pushed around for far too long
You may have all the credits but we're numbers strong
I bet you thought that you'd won the fight
But you forgot we have the ewoks on our side
You tried to stop us with an evil scheme
To turn our hero Luke into the apprentice of your dreams
But as you see the light prevails over the dark
And the alliance will have left our mark
Palpatine, you've betrayed us for the last time (your reign is at its end)
Watch your boy Vader throw you down the core (We've brought the battle to your door)
Our once peaceful worlds besmirched by greed( corrupted by malevolent deeds)
We'll erase every trace of you from history
We are
Rebels
We are
Legion
We are
Rebels
We are
Legion
I'll rip, the life, straight from, your bones
Your throne will, collapse under, the weight of, your blood
I'll rip, the life, straight from, your bones
Your throne will, collapse under, the weight of your blood
I wish I'd seen through that bullshit smile
you charmed the senators but you were evil all the while
We should've known the Clone Wars were a ruse
We never had a chance, it was destiny to lose
You took from us the Chosen One
phasers shouldn't have been set to stun
Windu's death was just a prefix
To the horror of Execute Order 66
Palpatine, you've betrayed us for the last time (your reign is at its end)
Watch your boy Vader throw you down the core (We've brought the battle to your door)
Our once peaceful worlds besmirched by greed( corrupted by malevolent deeds)
We'll erase every trace of you from history
Track Name: From Revilement To Ruin
To my eyes I see a waste
A defilement to my creations of clay
Thou hast wrought upon thyselves a fury which
you all may pray is never seen again
To the depths of hell are you all condemned
Don't even bother trying to repent
I gave to you the blessed river Jordan
and in response you give me rage and war
I gave to you salvation through Abraham
and in response you give me sin galore
Wicked heathens, kneel before your god
for soon you will know his wrath
Cherish these hours for they'll soon be gone
Your budding future now returned to ash
Look not upon the ashes, Look not upon the flames
Look not upon the ruin, or a pillar you shall remain
I often wonder when alone, if maybe I made a mistake
In trusting such a young and stupid creation with their own fate
Could it be that I, the creator , the omnipotent
in forsaking my archangels fell pray to arrogance?
Though I offered mercy and everlasting forgiveness to you all
You repaid me in kind with the raping of angels and so I damn you all
Cursed Humans
I often wonder when alone, if maybe I made a mistake
In trusting such a young and stupid creation with their own fate
Could it be that I, the creator , the omnipotent
in forsaking my archangels fell pray to arrogance?
As I look down upon the cities, as the flames take their toll
I cannot shake this feeling that I'm the one who should atone
For clearly I must have made a mistake, a miscalculation
For perfect beings in my perfect image can't deserve such devastation
The storm's behind me now, and yet I feel hallow
Powerful though I am, it seems not all invincible
Emotionally vested in these creatures of mud and dust
What makes them infinitely more important then the universe?
Track Name: History (A Reprise)
Their eyes beat down on me like desert heat
I drown in a sea of critiques
The worlds not satisfied with live and let live
These people all act like machines
My life has been a giant
Social disembowelment
There is no higher dishonor
Then putting logic before Country God and Altar
Irrelevant are your morals, inconsequential is your life
Everything you think is wrong, sit down and shut up you're here for the long haul
Activism is a thought best left to hippies and liberal scum
After all an open mind looks better with an exit wound
Where did the radicals go?
When did pushing the envelope become obsolete?
What happened to ingenuity?
Are we really all fucking content?
Who are you to tell me that I dress wrong?
We're not from the same make, so back the fuck off
I'll be the judge of who I am
Don't blame me for your lack of self worth
Welcome to the end of life as you know it
Hope you enjoyed your time as a member of the club
Please don't forget your complimentary manual on
How to reinvent yourself according to our norms
The gates are shut forever
We've lost everything we held sacred
To my children please forgive me
We held your futures in our hands, and we wasted it
