New World Sympathy Music: N. Da Silva Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook It’s a struggle that we face – sell our souls for pay Feel the risk and feel the weight – of our, “demonocracy” In this new world sympathy – she is, forced to choose one way Dirty bills or poverty But what will be decided? Two paths of living life Her morals are divided From what is wrong and right She admits the times have changed – when we, cannot break away From this fake security – drilling day by day To cooperate, to generate the tar that suffocates Dirty bills or poverty But what will be decided? Two paths of living life Her morals are divided From what is wrong and right But what will be decided? Two paths of living life Her morals are divided From what is wrong and right She knows this is destruction Of our humanity A new realm of disaster A path they clearly made Without morality

Take Us Away 04:08
Take Us Away Music: N. Da Silva/B. Soares Lyrics: N. Da Silva Imbalanced and abused through time Division of the mind and what is right The flow that keeps us all alive It’s about to show us what it needs to survive We are the parasite And soon we all will die The balance will return in time We’ll have nothing left to say We’ll have no one left to blame When the world is fucked and gone If there’s something left to say Go find someone left to blame When the end’s about to come And take us away We live without a change in sight Awaken to the truth and open your eyes Together we must search inside And free ourselves, from ourselves again We’ll have nothing left to say We’ll have no one left to blame When the world is fucked and gone If there’s something left to say Go find someone left to blame When the end’s about to come And then take us away from this hell we made I said take me away from this hell we made We’ll have nothing left to say We’ll have no one left to blame When the world is fucked and gone (x2) We’ll have nothing left to say We’ll have no one left to blame When the end’s about to come And take us away

The Downward Spiral: Save Us From Ourselves Music: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook/B. Soares Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook All these years go by I see my life so high, a passed down memory Life before, I live the dream My own suffering Should I do anything? A view of hopelessness A product of my carelessness My fears, despair, consume me Save me, save us from ourselves My mind is free, abuse me Save me, save us from ourselves Ourselves, ourselves Aware of what I see I choose to let it be a disconnected way Still I wait for them to say Waiting patiently For the change in me But will I ever be Rid of this complacency? My fears, despair, consume me Save me, save us from ourselves My mind is free, abuse me Save me, save us from ourselves Ourselves, ourselves Now, I can see – there will never be an end to this How can I be so mindless to the lack of consciousness? Fight or flight – never caring of the end in sight We must need adrenaline to purge the fear we always fight A downward spiral (x4) My fears, despair, consume me Save me, save us from ourselves My mind is free, abuse me Save me, save us from ourselves Ourselves, ourselves

Lies 05:12
Lies Music: N. Da Silva/B. Soares/S. Westbrook/N. Favretto Lyrics: N. Da Silva Goodbye blue sky A wasteland in sight When we run dry We’ll bring the decline Of life Thirteen thousand in an hour is the destiny Brutal killings and displacement in conformity Take advantage now to “better the economy” See the government fuck the majority Dig for gold and hijack society Turn the land into a corporate colony All to “better Western prosperity” While we cheat and fuck all humanity All these lies will kill millions of lives The 1% that play out our eventual demise All these lies destroy our future ties Ignoring all the values that will keep us alive Goodbye blue sky, a wasteland in sight When we run dry we’ll bring the decline When did we lose our connection to the Earth? The devastation we create must be reversed Open your eyes and wake up your minds Open your eyes before it’s too late Dig for gold and hijack society Turn the land into a corporate colony All to “better Western prosperity” While we cheat and fuck all humanity Take a stand and we can fight politically Fight for what is right environmentally Their morals lack responsibility Apocalyptic reflection of reality All these lies will kill millions of lives The 1% that play out our eventual demise All these lies destroy our future ties Ignoring all the values that will keep us alive Goodbye blue sky, a wasteland in sight When we run dry we’ll bring the decline Of life When we run dry We’ll bring the decline
