    This option is for friends or anyone who know's us and already has a personal contact. Basically, its been brought to our attention that £2.75 postage for a £5 cd seems quite a lot. We agree... however, there's no getting around that thats what it costs for recorded delivery, and we don't want to be vulnerable for those 'lost in the post cd's'. So if you know one of us, you can buy this option and avoid the postage costs however but please just drop whoever you know a message to arrange when your going to see each other and collect the CD!

Track Name: Tsunami
Intro

Beneath the waves of change
We endure the tide


Verse

If change comes in waves,
Can we outrun this tide?
‌‌‌
Stand your ground
It's on us now
Like a million fingers dragging down
Absence of sound
The roar of silence
Drowns you out
And drags you down into the deep
Swept away by apathy


PreChorus

Even the strongest flood,
begins with a single drop


Chorus

This wave bearing down on me
Sent to cleanse the wickedness
The horror that lives within us all


Verse

The breath before the plunge -
is peaceful serendipity
‌‌‌
Wash it away
Into the void
Into the blackest of all days
this under current
sweeps away, claws away
erosion such beautiful destruction
leaves us forever changed


PreChorus

Even the strongest flood,
begins with a single drop


Chorus

This wave bearing down on me
Sent to cleanse the wickedness
The horror that lives within us all


Bridge

Scream in vain, pray in vain
tthat the water recedes or you find your feet
and float and finally reach safer shores


Outro

Why can't we just be like a stone
and let the waters rush over us

Track Name: Be A Voice, Not An Echo
Verse

Like eating the hive from the inside,
We are hungry, but we are the meal.
Save your plate, leave the scraps for the vultures
Revelations that never yield
You wear the uniform and march to that drum.
The self obsessed, defeatist


PreChorus

So, Sing! Raise your voice!
Not to prove something,
But because you‌‌‌re alive!


Chorus

Next chapter, cliffhanger
Give up the ghost,
Where is your spirit?
Where is your voice?
You creature of habit,
Speak now or forever hold your peace
Moving on...


Verse

Your foundations are built on sand. (there‌‌‌s a void)
And dedicated to no particular purpose.
You wear the uniform, it fits so well.
Deny your history.
A hollow victory.
No home for cowardice,
No quarter for the faithless.
No coincidence your world is coming to pieces (in your hands)


PreChorus

So sing,
Raise your voice,
Become something,
because you're alive!


Chorus

Next chapter, cliffhanger
Give up the ghost,
Where is your spirit?
Where is your voice?


Bridge

There‌‌‌s only so much fake I can take.
Wipe that shit eating grin from your face.
Show your backbone and suffer the break.

Moving on...We are the hungry, we are the meal.
The dancing marionette
who pulls the strings


Outro

You wear the uniform it fits so well,
you wear their uniform it fits like a glove,
Forget the labels and be true to yourself
Amongst the noise
Be a voice not an echo.

Track Name: The I In Evil
Verse 1

Let this be, the anthem to a revolution
Let this be the revaltion to set us free
Entropy, entropy
You break it you bought it my friend
A constant state of cruelty
I'm preaching to the choir


PreChorus

These wings were made to fly
Forsake them all
we're falling down, down, down, down


Chorus

I've seen enough of this world
It's bleeding heartstrings
I've seen enough of this world
It fucking sickens me


Verse 2

Mayday, mayday, is anybody reading me?
disgrace, disgrace and not one fucking ounce of shame
How do you sleep at night?
The serpent has many faces
I'll keep my head held high
and wait for the end


PreChorus

These wings were made to fly
Forsake them all
we're falling down, down, down, down


Chorus

I've seen enough of this world
It's bleeding heartstrings
I've seen enough of this world
It fucking sickens me


Bridge

This system,
is failing.
So cold and calculating.
If ever,
a reason
to overthrow was needed
I'm pretty sure
We've had more than our fair share
I for one have had my fill
Bend the knee to no one
This ain't over yet
Keep your head held high
resist, resist, resist


Outro

It's plain to me, violence comes in cycles (x4)
we dug our own hole
we put the i in evil

Track Name: The Fall
Intro

Grow New skin
Replace the old skin
Cover the battle scars
Hide the same beast within

Bear witness to the fall


Verse

I've come to the end of my rope
inspiration like a loaded gun
Your mind an open grave
That swallows potential
See the ants in the aftermath
Run for cover - there is no recovery
The great destroyer an eater of worlds
I am destruction and your revulsion


Chorus

So right at being so wrong
New skin for these old bones
Abject moment of clarity
There's a rage in me


Verse

Become a ghost, a name whispered in hushed tones
"Nevermore" the screaming raven
"Nevermore" my tell tale heart

I'll scratch away until I reach the centre
Reclaim the throne, rebuild an start again
Chapter & verse, follow the hearse
or just procrastinate
Until all chances fade away


Chorus

So right at being so wrong
New skin for these old bones
Abject moment of clarity
There's a rage in me


Bridge

Procrastinate, until it fades away
procrastination is masturbation


Outro

Beaten and broken
And beaten
Until it all fades away

Track Name: Coffins
Intro
Eyes wide, open
Finite and forgotten
Redmption, disregarded
Welcomed home into ruined hands


Verse 1

Remembered
Like a stain on the face
Ashes to ashes
Dust unto dust
Embraced in dirt
And finally set free


Verse 2

You terrorize and feed the trepidation
Stake your claim in a holy war and burn down a nation


Chorus

Unemancipated and thrown to the wolves
Bow your heads in shame
Let the banners unfurl
Read aloud the names
Consume the sin
Bow your heads in the burial ground
And carry black coffins in


Verse 3

Nail after nail , nail after nail
Wear your thorns with pride
Walk with the whores
and poison your soul
‌may your righteousness be your demise
Eye for an eye,
until we all go blind
a lost cause is a lost cause
no matter how well it is disguised


Chorus

Unemancipated and thrown to the wolves
Bow your heads in shame
Let their banners unfurl
Read aloud the names
To cleanse your sin
Bow your heads in the burial ground
And carry black coffins in (and in, and in, and in, and in, and in)


Sample

"Some people think the Crucifixion only took place on Calvary. They better wise up! Taking Joey Doyle's life to stop him from testifying is a crucifixion. And dropping a sling on Kayo Dugan because he was ready to spill his guts tomorrow, that's a crucifixion. And every time the Mob puts the pressure on a good man, tries to stop him from doing his duty as a citizen, it's a crucifixion."
Father Barry (Karl Malden)
On the Waterfront (1954)


Bridge

In the shadow of your father's house
Lay me down


Outro

Shovel on shovel
Until dirt fills my lungs
A thorn in the mouth
Deceit on the tongue
Expel the sinner with bell book and candle
Alles ist Verboten
A guilt offering
