Lament 01:19
Lament Music: N. Da Silva Lyrics: S. Westbrook/N. Da Silva No tears for the suicide – of our lives No hopes to change the years gone by – yet we somehow survive Apology given too late – for actions of hate Today the choices we make – decide our fate

Feed The Machine Music: N. Da Silva Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook This is a compromise Campaigns made of lies A system that tries to be fair in “His” eyes But should we realize The consequences in disguise A silent path to our demise Power and greed, that is the dream Feed The Machine, and slowly bleed See them starve, and feel nothing now See them cry, fear but don’t ask why Add on, add on more gain Add on, add on more pain Add on, add on more fear Add on, and disappear Downward we go, never to return Just like the earth below, and the fuel we burn Addiction always desires for more Always more, more, more, more Fear on the screens, that’s all we see Consume and breed, that’s all we breathe Power and greed, that is the dream Feed The Machine, and slowly bleed See them starve, and feel nothing now See them cry, fear but don’t ask why Add on, add on more gain Add on, add on more pain Add on, add on more fear Add on, and disappear See them starve, and feel nothing now See them cry, fear but don’t ask why See them starve, and feel nothing now See them cry, fear but don’t ask why Power and greed, that is the dream Feed The Machine, and slowly bleed Add on, add on more gain Add on, add on more pain Add on, add on more fear Add on, and disappear

Stand And Fight Music: N. Da Silva Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook For you and I will see The world can often be the Hand of greed that takes our right to breathe In silent misery Slander bends our dreams Telling us to feed on the machine No science can silence The blind sickness of mankind – will never see No violence can silence The right to express our mind – we will stand and fight Green covers blacket me And soon it becomes me It’s a curse that no one sees It’s hard to take the lead It sees our every deed Telling us to feed on the machine No science can silence The blind sickness of mankind – will never see No violence can silence The cries of our conscious minds – when we have to decide No science can silence The blind sickness of mankind – will never see No violence can silence The cries of our conscious minds No violence can silence The right to express our mind – we will stand and fight

Pull The Trigger (free) 04:07
Pull The Trigger Music: N. Da Silva Lyrics: S. Westbrook/N. Da Silva If this is me, then who am I? If I don’t speak, then who will try? To be like them is where we end A revolution to defend Dark shadows on the earth Cast light to break the curse No time to look back on our mistakes No crime to have ourselves left in shame Our lives are devoted to the truth To find all the answers to the world we knew Last stand before we disappear Outnumbered by the ones who fear As we lose to the machine Say goodbye to the fear that they create To the values that they make No time to look back on our mistakes No crime to have ourselves left in shame Our lives are devoted to the truth To find all the answers to the earth It’s the time for our rebirth Say goodbye to what you see It’s the answer that we need No time to look back on our mistakes No crime to have ourselves left in shame Our lives are devoted to the truth To find all the answers to the world we knew Pull the trigger and say goodbye

Global Empires Fall Music: N. Da Silva Lyrics: N. Da Silva Controlled by society We work to fit the mould Possessed by hypocrisy We do as we are told As slaves to it all A mass-condemned befall A suicidal call As global empires fall Controlled by technology We live the need for more Driven to insanity Without a breath or soul As slaves to it all A mass-condemned befall A suicidal call As global empires fall The lives we live, not willing to give A chance to change our ways The mind is set, mistakes we forget Should we try, or should we be left to die? We are the economy The ones who have control Death to humanity Destroy and build no more As slaves to it all A mass-condemned befall A suicidal call As global empires fall As slaves to it all A mass-condemned befall A suicidal call As global empires fall

Without The Machine Music: B. Soares/N. Da Silva Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook Unconsciousness, a dark abyss Government defied Our structure decayed, complete disarray Parliament declined Our genocide, self-suicide Mankind redefined We fought for truth, not what we knew Time to rebuild A cycle reborn, addiction no more Only clear thoughts Our freedom in natural design Autonomy strong and divine Guilty no more Our shelter from power and greed Our moment to rebuild the dream Without The Machine No tears for the suicide – of our lives No hopes to change the years gone by – yet we somehow survive Apology given too late – for actions of hate Today the choices we make – decide our fate
