Track Name: Hoax
Well nothing really went according to plan, we got got by our own stupidity
Although it feels like it's out of our hands, it stays in our heads through mindless publicity
It shouldn't take this long to understand, you can't solve all of life's great mysteries
But humanity feeds off the imagery of passed down tales taught throughout history

And just cause you heard them say, “this is the only way”
It doesn't mean your perspective is any less subjective

We're not meant to be a part - a part of the problem
Without first admitting our failures how will we solve them - it's a mutual involvement
The meaning of life, in itself, is a hoax - a hoax
Have we all fallen victim to the punchline of the longest running joke?

Shape your future into what you desire, don't let regret be your final confession
Cause when it all comes down to the wire, all we have is our dreams and the way we address them
Hope is the spark that ignites the fire, it's in everything that breathes but it's not often mentioned
Life lesson to aid your progression: you are the answer to all of your questions
Track Name: Voice Of A Generation
What is the voice of a generation?
Is it an industry replication of a false idol for the blind demographic, looking to start the next new sensation?
Numb your senses for "the greater good"
Until everything is misunderstood
Keep yourself in line don't ask questions just take notes

We are one
We're not yours to control
Follow none

What is the voice of a generation?
Is it psychological manipulation?
A subtle effort to weaken the masses, freedom of thought replaced by dictation
Numb your senses for "the greater good"
And don't forget to do what they would

Keep yourself in line don't ask questions just take notes

One by one
We're not yours to control
Follow none

Think for yourself x4
Be your own voice, speak for yourself x3
Track Name: New World Culture
Lost our sense of direction and now there's a fork in the road
Born to follow the blood on the pavement, a choice that was never my own
All of the gold in the world ain't worth, the price that we pay to survive
Cause surviving is dying to prove that there's more to life than just being alive

You're blind from the lust in your eyes
The streets will flood when the markets collide
Corruption through currency, slaves till we die
Believe what they tell you while in fear we hide
In god we trust
In fear we hide
In god we trust

Found our means of protection, it was down the barrel of a gun
Shot dead while in whispers they said "as long as the cheque still comes"
Point me in the direction of something that history cannot repeat
Our impending self destruction is the fork in the road, the direction we go is yet to be seen

You're blind from the lust in your eyes
The streets will flood when the markets collide
Corruption through currency, slaves till we die
Believe what they tell you while in fear we hide
In god we trust
In fear we hide
In god we trust
Track Name: Blind Spot
There's no escaping (what I've created)
Claustrophobic, suffocating
Surpressed by the thoughts (more often than not)
That turns hope into heartache and life to a blind spot
Desperate for a crutch (release me)
We turn and run from ourselves until we lose touch
Of the things that put purpose in place of our fears
This disposition doesn't just disappear

And I know that it sounds strange
But things are meant to change
Believe it to be true
That change starts with you
