Track Name: SUPREME SACRIFICE
Supreme Sacrifice


Another day in the grind.

Falling further behind.

Living on borrowed time.


Trying to make ends meet.

Don’t wanna be back out on the street.

Can’t survive another defeat.


Looking for relief

Hopeless and lost all belief

A veil of tears don’t need no more grief


There are those who would make the supreme sacrifice

Rather than continue to fight. (2x)


Suicide - Pick your poison.

Suicide - Your drug of choice

Suicide - No rhyme or reason

Suicide - another silenced voice


I know how it is.

I understand discontent.

I know what it’s like to feel restless.


I understand the desire to alter my emotions.

To control what I feel.

Sometimes you want to just give up.


Sometimes you want to just give up.

The weight of the world on your shoulders.

It’s devastating.


The pressure. Self imposed. Or otherwise.

You’re dealing with so much.

One more thing might just be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.


So you search for relief.

Who wouldn’t? Who doesn’t?

Relief is good right?

A coupla drinks. Or some substance. Or activity.

Take your mind off things. Relax.

It’s all good. Forget about it all. For even a moment.

Even for 15 goddamn seconds

Even for 15 goddamn seconds


Watching your life go by. Don’t even try.

To tell me the reasons why. You deny Yourself

a chance to finally see. What it’s like to be

Clarity - reality. It’s so plain to see.


Ultimate Sacrifice. It doesn’t look too nice

See all you angels in hell.
Track Name: ANTHROPOCENTRIC
Anthropocentric


Agriculture - Enslave the land

Put it to human use

Domestication tame the wild

Man’s abuse. Man’s abuse.


Those who tear the Earth apart

with their self-importance & greed

These! are the signs of the times

Humanity!


Domestication. Domination. Alienation. (2x)

Domesticate. Dominate. Annihilate!

These, are the signs of the times.


We are dy-ing

We are bleeding out

We are dying (2x)

Bleeding out

These are the signs Never mind.

We are dy-ing

We are bleeding out

We are dying

We are bleeding out

The Cities rise up from the forests.

We are dy-ing

We are bleeding out


These are the signs - of the times never mind.

These are the signs of the times.


Anthropocentric.(4x)

Anthropocentirc (3x)

These are the signs of the times.


Anthropocenic view

unquestioned attitude

followed thru.

Anthropocentric

(Man’s abuse.)

The taker. The thief. The greedy. The weak. The taker. The Thief

Anthropocentric (2x)
