Track Name: The War
a triple threat:

mass destruction
anarchy
and
hatred

cross the line; join the shadows
and pretend you still believe

emergency
an urgency to fall back and reload
while the failsafe on eternity
continues to erode

destruction
explosion
history in motion

tyrannical devotion

monarchs, puppets, deities
masters of distraction

tyrannical devotion

monarchs, puppets, deities:
victims of the war

globalised societies:
victims of the war

terror and the terrorised:
victims of the war

interstellar suicide
welcome to the war

we're all in the war
Track Name: Take the Shot
i am out of control
in a desperate place
i'm an unknown soldier
with a well-known face
but i can't escape
i can't break free
that darkness is
consuming me

take the shot, take it down
don't let the ship run aground

now my vision clear
now the truth laid bare
you're on borrowed time
and we still ain't square
cash to ashes
cities to dust
if you leave me no choice
then i'll do what i must

take the shot, take him down
shoot the priest, shoot the clown

now my alter ego
is in full effect
give the past
a reality check
in the underbelly
of your sacred place
ethos gone
without a trace

take the shot, take us down
you took a while to come around
take the shot, make us proud
hear the cheering of the crowd

take the shot, take him down
don't let the man get you down
take the shot, take him down
shoot the priest, shoot the clown
Track Name: Teknoelefant
teknoelefant
into the kremiln
teknoelefant
into parliament
teknoelefant
eat the government
teknoelefant
inside you

excommunication
the virus sweeps the nation
download revolution
at 4K resolution

teknoelefant
into the kremiln
teknoelefant
into parliament
teknoelefant
eat the government
teknoelefant
inside you

unrelenting force
charging at the source
several shades of grey
elefant today

we practice science in your name
but it's all the same
the second coming never came
and it's all the same

take no prisoners
teknoelefant
take no prisoners
teknoelefant
take no prisoners
teknoelefant
take no prisoners
teknoelefant

teknoelefant
into the kremiln
teknoelefant
into parliament
teknoelefant
eat the government
teknoelefant
inside you

we practice science in your name
but it's all the same
the second coming never came
and it's all the same
a moment of silence all in vain
but it's all the same
the rhythm driving us insane
and it's all the same

Track Name: Recombinant
hey, you
step inside
get down on your knees
listen to our master
let us sell you his disease

satisfaction guaranteed
suck it down; it's oh so good for you
we will give you what you need
buy, consume and die
it's good for you

the proteins have been optimised
the portions have been super-sized
total lack of oversight
we do this just for you

it's the highest quality
stop resisting, it's so good for you
we are the authority
and you will do what we tell you to

it's not what you want
it's what we need

who makes the decisions?
who is hypnotised?
where's the information?

who makes the decisions?
who is hypnotised?
where's the information?
you've been compromised

open your eyes
Track Name: Destination: Dead
we're at the vantage point
we're at the end of everything
only time to kill
in this cold and rusting city

the war drums beating on
the streets are painted red
get us out

destination:
dead

8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

destination: dead
kill everything
is it in your head
i'm wondering
how to hold together
what sanity remains
before the enemy surrounds us
and enslaves us once again

shivering
the emptiness i dread
i see them gathering
and they're gunning for my head

destination: dead
kill everything
is it in your head
i'm wondering
how to hold together
what sanity remains
before the enemy surrounds us
and enslaves us once again

destination: dead

i don't want to die.
goodbye.
Track Name: Sheep to the Wind
ich fühle mich gut
ich fühle mich gut

thoughts encased in concrete
weighing down my soul
sinking even deeper
further still to go

ich fühle mich gut
ich fühle mich gut

time is an illusion
so is sanity
this intoxication
reassembles me

ich fühle mich gut
ich fühle mich gut
Track Name: Apocalypticon
apocalypticon

you brought it on yourselves
termination of the world
apocalypticon

the final lap around the sun
but you will never see the finish line
apocalypticon

contamination
mass destruction

you brought it on yourselves
termination of the world
apocalypticon

the final lap around the sun
but you will never see the finish line
apocalypticon

sayonara
defcon one
final tribute to the smoking gun

stripped of intellect
stripped of pride
a self-inflicted
genocide

you brought it on yourselves
termination of the world
apocalypticon

the final lap around the sun
but you will never see the finish line
apocalypticon

Track Name: Apollo 19
under attack
the threat is real
those are the facts
we need a military weapon
that is brutal and exact

we are nearing the completion
of the ultimate intelligence
an artificial demi-god
designed to be our best defense

this is apollo 19 transmitting from tranquility
we're signing off
good luck and godspeed

this will be our last transmission
we're abandoning our post
existential contradiction
the machine is in the ghost

7-5-2114
sensors indicate that we are one with the machine
now that we can see ourselves
for what we really are
it's time to pull the plug
before the sickness spreads too far

this is apollo 19 transmitting from tranquility
we're signing off
good luck and godspeed

this will be our last transmission
we're abandoning our post
existential contradiction
the machine is in the ghost

now in flight we come to realise
everything we know is wrong
we are soldiers of confusion
in a war that can't be won
