Track Name: the Rise of the Machines
Craving the obscene,
a nihilistic routine,
gazing from wounded knee,
the rise...

Gone is the mechanic,
no voices to lament,
no sense of panic,
the rise...

CH> Gazing from wounded knee, the rise of the machine.

Iron and clay,
must separate,
a new conscious awakes,
the rise...

Who controls who?
Gone are the tools,
such arrogant fools,
the rise...
Track Name: the Earth Still Speaks
The earth still speaks in a forgotten tongue,
a concerned mother, she weeps for her young,
but the sun will still rise when the oil is all gone,
and if we don’t open our eyes it won’t be long.

We will wage war for water, we will pay for clean air,
and hide from the sunlight until extremes make us care.
Its the children who suffer as they ask why and where,
search for answers, and find our ignorance there.

CH> Bring back the medicine man,
the mystic and the bard,
For without in tune insight,
our lessons will be hard.

We’re accountable for actions, and all consequence threefold,
and still we rape and plunder even though we’ve been told,
that greed is our undoing, and the earth will just behold,
and whisper warnings as she’s divided and sold.
