lyrics

Have I fallen for the scheme?
Am I caught in a looping dream?
(All) Our Photoshopped desires
The kings betrayed by the squires

Mechanized monsters come from all sides
A familiar voice asks for my abide
Visions blur as I lose sight
Faces appear; features that bring fright

Drosophila they call themselves
Stacked tanks upon the shelves
Like batteries draining life
One reaches for the knife

We seek your powers of fire
Your childhood dreams, deepest desires
Are we consumers of this land?
Or the product they demand?

Fueled by fear above they dwell
Above us all they took control
The city of boxes, we played the fool
Tortured soul locked in the cell

As we lived on factory floors
nature turned a whore
she sings nevermore
Is this elaborate scheme still just a dream?
they want my demons to settle scores
Please don't fall for their familiar lures
I won't swallow their poisoned cure
Born on factory floors
Nature turned a whore
She sings nevermore
Alizarin settles score

We seek your powers of fire
Your childhood dreams, deepest desires
Are we consumers of this land?
Or the product they demand?

Solo - Vollbrecht

I find myself in a darkened room [“Welcome”]
My memories begin to bloom
Like flies they have invaded our world

In more ways
Than one
My second
Side has won

“Living off of dreams and shame
I write these words to seek the truth
Fiction tells alone we speak
Hear the sound our gods fall around us
Nothing left and no one to trust
they fill our heads for profit with lust
Hit the ground, don't make a scene
They can't do this and get away clean”

Look around you now your dreams held above you on wire string
Never have I said a word without meaning to me as I sing
Pthalo isn't me, It's you, hope you see
You see, all I want is to make you think
Sorrows burn away, see it all before we sink
Eruptions on the brink. Mafic fires grow
Alizarin finally shows!

Solo - Vollbrecht

Voice of Alizarin:
I can't fucking stand it anymore
This world is scammed nature turned a whore
Alizarin hides on my insides nevermore
All has been said
All I see is now red.
