Track Name: This Was Not Progress
A blow to the head
Binding my feet
hanging my neck

There is no plan to this meaningless progress
no linear path, no obvious end
Caught in a brambe, thorns ripping me open
spewing my insides, leabing me hollow

We turn our backs
if hindight is 20/20 the path should be clear
instead we cyvle through the defeat of years
I clench my fist
turn the bones and the ash under my feet
The history we’re bound to repeat

Scraping the bottom, I divulge my ignorance
Blinded by pride, I grasp for a rope
To pull myeself out of this well of false help
And what i’ve learned of this problematic plight

This Was Not Progress
To know what can be done, to stop an ocean’s rage
The bilges overflow, drowning is my escape
Track Name: Bury Your Head
Bury Your Head
Claw Out Your Eyes

Pain seeming so significant in my life
is nothing against the body count
The underprivileged, the animals
those outside my center of self

Bombs falling, the protective glass disappeared
Gutted lives, harrowing despair
The realest vision, a world unedited
the stench revealing something far too real


Lifeless among the debris
ruins stretch for miles
how long until the shadows
stretch to my home

Bury Your Head
Claw Out Your Eyes
Track Name: Desertification
Glistening sands, an orgy of dust
Empty horizons, scorching death
The land that was lost, cradle of life
Burned away, evaporation of living earth

A disgruntled mother, scorns her spawn
That wanted for not, yet drank her breast dry

Neglecting terminal illness, denial of the sages
Cancerous wounds, boiling blood
as exemplified through humanity approaching the end
do we cower in fear or embrace the wretched end
Final comprehension of collective demise
