Track Name: Colonizer
Pick apart, a vulture feeds,
The war machine.
History, entitles you,
So you decide,
If you have to own up too…

And it drives you insane, all day lon,g.
It drives you insane, all day long.

Smart thieves, hide in plain view, steal agency.
Equal rights, means if you’re white you lose,
So you still deny, that you have to own up too.

And it drives you insane, all day long.
It drives you insane, all day long.

(…And if the racist white person, I don’t mean the person who is examining his consciousness and so on, doesn’t understand, that he or she is also a race that’s also constructed, its also made and also has some kind of serviceability.
But when you take it away,
I take your race away
And there you are all strung out
And all you got is your little self,
and what is that?
Are you any good?
Are you still strong?
Are you still smart?
You still like yourself?
I take your race away.
Are you any good?
Are you still strong?
You still like yourself?)

And it drives you insane, all day long.
It drives and it drives you insane, all day long.

Colonize, state disguised, on repeat.
(You have to own up too)
Colonize, state disguised, on repeat.
(You have to own up too)
Colonize, state disguised, on repeat.
(You have to own up too)
Track Name: Bystander Effect
It’s my little world, catastrophe.
It’s me against the world,
I take what I need.
There’s a way through,
Trust in the worst truth.
I need a reason to fuck with the world.

It’s my little world of apathy,
I stay curled, trapped by screens.
There’s a way through,
Don’t care about you.
I lost my reason
To fuck with the world.

It’s my loss, living in this grave.
(if you wait)
To find your worth, you will standby,
Watching from afar.
Watching from afar.
So far, so far, so far, so far...
Track Name: What Comes Next?
I don’t know if I can.
I don’t know what I need.
I can fake my plans.
I don’t know what comes next.
Where to start to rewrite
The words that pulled me apart.
I was raised to confiscate
The thoughts of a leader.

I don’t know if I’m deaf.
I don’t know if I can dream.
I can fake my thoughts.
I don’t know what comes next.
If I lied,
I don’t know the faculties I’ve denied.
I was raised to become a non-believer.

I don’t know, if I can pretend,
That I believe, I was born free.
If i could face my debt,
And live up to my Muslim name,
Surrender all my love and embrace
What comes next...
Face my debt, face my debt, (surrender).
Face my debt, face my debt
And live up to my, and live up to my
And live up, and live up, and live up to my…

I don’t know what you planned.
I don’t know how to pray.
I can take my chance.
I don’t know what comes next.
If my heart already knew
You had baited me from the start.
I was raised to become a non-believer.

I don’t know if I’m mad.
I don’t know who to blame.
I can trade my pain.
I don’t know what comes next.
If my heart already knew,
I was destined to fall apart.
Before I could become a devoted believer.

If i could face my debt,
And live up to my Muslim name,
Surrender all my love and embrace
What comes next...
Face my debt, face my debt, (surrender).
Face my debt, face my debt
And live up to my, and live up to my
And live up, and live up, and live up to my
Muslim name…

I don’t know if I can pretend
I was born free,
I was born free.
Track Name: BILLS$
Hey, I got bills. Debt, always.
Hey, I’m not well, ‘cause all the people,
I used to know…

I keep giving away, I keep giving away
I keep giving away, my love.
I keep giving away, I keep giving away
I keep giving away. to them.
I keep giving away, I keep giving away
I keep giving away, all my love.
I keep giving away, I keep giving away
All my love, all my love.

Ghosts, I can’t bury you.
You still try, to haunt my room.
Friends, I left long ago,
But my debt, maybe, lives so much longer.

I keep giving away, I keep giving away
I keep giving away, my love.
I keep giving away, I keep giving away
I keep giving away. to them.
I keep giving away, I keep giving away
I keep giving away, all my love.
I keep giving away, I keep giving away
All my love, all my love.

Lately, I’ll dream,
I have, nothing inside me.
I’m left destitute, 
And I’m not violent, 
I can’t bring a change.
Change, change.

I’m left destitute.
Destitute.
Tute, tute, tute, tute…
Track Name: I Read Your Note
I read your note,
Are you okay?
Have you been gone since forever?
I can’t deny, I’m still afraid, if you are better off.

And do you remember when
The life left both of your hands?
You told me you never win,
And you sowed the silence…

You should know I can’t love you.
You should know I can’t love you.
You should know I can’t love you.
You should know I can’t love you.

I read your note,
You want death,
No one really cares.

You used to love,
only once, never again,
I really really care.

And do you remember when
The life left both of your hands?
You told me you never win,
And you saw the silence
(Become you)

You should know I can’t love you.
You should know I can’t love you.
You should know I can’t love you.
You should know I can’t love you.
Track Name: Wonderloss
It’s you growing older.
It’s you that loses wonder.

I haven’t already told you,
Falling faster, the years became few.
All my wonders had funerals soon.
Go way down there,
A bottomless truth.

And you could’t trust me,
Never asked me plainly,
It’s our little way to not say.
And you saw me strung out,
Never thought I was found,
I could hide between days.

It’s you growing older.
It’s you that loses wonder.

Slower, I’m all the way down.
Save me, I’ll never be the same.
It’s painless, I’m all the way down.
I’ll try it, I’ll never be the same.
I’ll never be the same.

It’s you growing older.
Track Name: Hellboy/Puppet
Baby / don’t die.
I asked you / if you’re high.
Messed up / it kills us all.
Lay down / it runs through me / runs through me
In my veins / I won’t let it fade
I’m high with you…
(I’m high / I’m high)

I don’t ever feel alive / I don’t ever feel alive
I don’t ever feel alive 
Don’t
Don’t

Say anything / Say anything / Say anything…

***
The things I used to like
I don’t like anymore,
I want a lot of other things I’ve never had before…

I’m as jumpy as / a puppet on a string
I’m as jumpy as / a puppet on a string
I’m as jumpy as / a puppet on a string
I’m as jumpy as / a puppet on a string

I’d say that I have spring fever
But I know it isn’t spring, spring, spring, spring.

I’m as jumpy as / a puppet on a string
I’m as jumpy as / a puppet on a string
I’m as jumpy as / a puppet on a string
I’m as jumpy as / a puppet on a string

I’d say that I have spring fever
But I know it isn’t spring, spring, spring, spring.

I am as starry eyed and gravely discontented
Like a nightingale without a song to sing
Oh, why should I have spring fever?
Track Name: False Flag
I’m half awake in my third eye.
A grave mistake that I normalize.
(I know, I know, I know)
We’ve been demonized.
(I know, I know, I know)
It’s been televised.
(Maybe, maybe, maybe)
Every truth feels insane.
(Maybe, maybe, maybe)
Every false flag will cave.

I haven’t lost my point of view.
I haven’t lost my sense of truth.
I haven’t lost my point of view.
I haven’t, I haven’t.

I feel betrayed by my own mind.
The truth decays,
As the world decides.
(I know, I know, I know.)
What I used to say...
(I know, I know, I know)
That it feels too late...
(Maybe. maybe, maybe)
Every truth feels insane.
(Maybe, maybe, maybe)
Every false flag will cave.

I haven’t lost my point of view.
I haven’t lost my sense of truth.
I haven’t lost my point of view.
I haven’t, I haven’t.
Track Name: Cult of Dumb
Came to fight / mass opinion / I am laced
Pray for rights / a kill system / we are the waste

And we stay pacified / we always buy
Something new / yeah
And I’ll tell half a lie / got to still try
Need to bless up.

I’ll go far away.
I’ll go far away.

Stay quiet / lie by omission / look the other way
Play dumb / give up your disposition / think less today

We watched our conscience go to sleep,
We can’t accept our pedigree.

I’ll go far away.
I’ll go far away.
Track Name: The Revisionist
I can’t evolve with you,
Impossible too soon.
Rewrite our history,
I didn’t know our past could change.

It’s a long way to come back home,
It’s a long way to prove you wrong.
It’s a long way back,
It’s a long way back.

You told me move back home,
Give up on my mistakes.
But what if you were wrong?
I needed you / I needed you to know…

It’s a long way to come back home,
It’s a long way to prove you wrong.
It’s a long way back,
It’s a long way back.
Track Name: Bystander 2 Ft. Heems
It’s my little world, catastrophe.
It’s me against the world,
I take what I need.
There’s a way through,
Trust in the worst truth.
I need a reason to fuck with the world.

It’s my little world of apathy,
I stay curled, trapped by screens.
There’s a way through,
Don’t care about you.
I lost my reason
To fuck with the world.

(HEEMS)
yo we bomb atomically
we bombing all they colonies
standing by in syria
watching the atrocities
apathetic narcissists
i wanna get up off the couch
but i haven't gone so far with it
i’d rather get on twitter
where the bitter king can get far with wit
hard to worship artemis
when all our queens are dismissed
we wasn't born dumb
we was dumbed down
gentrify us, kick us from the city to a bum town
come down your ivory tower
yo you got the mighty power
why you so high strung now?
sleep, eat, fuck
bye bye bye
sell sell celluloid
bye bye byyyyyeee
i feel trapped in the scene
i see life through a screen
when now crack’s sold in queens
i can pass the time passively
and live through my dreams
ignore the machines of regimes
while they die and scream

(FAR)
It’s my loss, living in this grave.
(if you wait)
To find your worth, you will standby,
Watching from afar.
Watching from afar.
So far, so far, so far, so far...
Track Name: The World Goes On
I’m standing still today,
I can’t give up on all of us.
I know you can’t relate,
I’m a little darker than you trust…
I’ve got my own crusade,
I wanna give you both my lungs.
I’m not even worth being saved,
A little high / I’m all of us

It goes on and on,
It goes on and on and on,
You go on, just go on,
The world goes on and on.
It goes on and on,
The world goes on and on.
Do you feel on? So on?
Do you feel you’re on?

I’m trying to keep my name,
But you can’t pronounce
all of it.
Is it a stupid saying
that one of us is all of us?
It’s alright, it’s okay,
You’ll survive this day.
If everyone’s complacent,
Then who of us will become
The outliers?

It goes on and on,
It goes on and on and on,
You go on, just go on,
The world goes on and on.
It goes on and on,
The world goes on and on.
Do you feel on? So on?
Do you feel you’re on?

The world goes on and on.
Track Name: Disappearance of Thoughts
I carry out the plans of future me.
Who speaks the voice that structures my brain?
I’m fed the words that find,
who I should be.
I’m dreaming dumber than yesterday.

Don’t / trust / your / brain.
Can’t / discern / where I / begin.

I carry out the plans of future me.
Who speaks the voice that structures my brain?
I’m fed the words that find,
who I should be.
I’m dreaming dumber than yesterday.

Drain all the poison,
Resist the fear.
Witness the holy
Structure of all your veins.
Track Name: Barely There
Don’t play dead,
God is red.
And all of us alone,
We fade away in our homes.

Barely there,
I can’t exceed.

And I don’t wanna be the worst I am and get sucked away.
And I don’t wanna live and be so small and waste all my days.
