Track Name: In Medias Res
Fire brightened building tops
rats across my feet
And who shall be accountable
for death among the streets?

Red sun drenched, bone-chime song
the darkness never ends
psychopomp is standing by
I’ll get my revenge

Say, he got religion, he confusing tongues
He take what he need to the song of the lambs

This life is left to vestiges
my message is foretold
Hunted down the demogogue,
to the devil he’ll be sold

He holes in the bellfry
the bats are on the fly
fanatics take to suicide

Say, he got religion, he confusing tongues
He take what he need to the song of the lambs
So I follow stairway to the sky
And I throw him, throw him from bird’s eye
Track Name: Killz Witch
My skin is peeling, eroding to the bone
My plans are leaking, the secret's not my own
We have no choice, we're rolling home
After all this time, we're still alone

Oh let the sky rain down on me
My hands are shaking, me knees are weak
Is this the progress they promised us?
Are we forsaken, all dreams are crushed

We're trekking down the avenue
Our chains secure, our fingers blue
We're dedicated, we're pressing on
But this degradation is much too strong!
Track Name: Psychomachia
I’m a politic man...
with a politic plan...
This battered land?...
The whip hand struck with hard demand...

Our virtue’s done...
You hear me, son?
Vice has
rip the head of suburbia...

The time has come to
load up a gun, burn it and run, have some fun...
Yeah, yeah, yeah–come on!

Outta ammo and no safety nowhere...
Every step only sharpens the crosshair...
May’ve been a little hasty then....
W-w-where do–where do I–where do I go from here?...

The Wolf’s at the door singing...
Bang, bang, bang, bang!
No, no, noooooo!
Track Name: The Drift
Dull as a knife
Two years ago today
It all fell apart
The memories ripped away

When everything’s gone
And all you can do is drift
The anger is all that’s left


They destroyed your life
Took everything you held dear
To win their war
They played with the people’s fear

The casualties mount
The people are put to shame
Their war is a rich man’s game

The end
Track Name: Died in the U.S.A.
What the hell is going on?
Is this supposed to be our Babylon?
Where are the orders? Where are the plans?
We’re rubble in waiting if we whisper demands.
But when maddening crowds hear the charlatan songs,
armed barbarians come on a little strong and...

We all died in the USA.

All at once we're a leviathan.
Dumb, but not your paragon.
An asylum of jaws that liquidly flows,
Brought to the surface and it's "Thar She blows!"
Prodding the beast gets the weathering bell,
One false move and we'll drag you all to hell, and then...

We all died in the USA.
