Track Name: Cannibal Road
As you walk alone down Cannibal Road,
Forget everything that you've once known,
Close your eyes and taste their lies,
Ignore the world as brave men die.

There are no wrong turns only forward,
There are no signposts pointing back,
The path we choose is not for your kind.

A crab mentality,
Sinks its claws into me,
Feed on humanity,
Down Cannibal Road
My speciality,
Too many mouths to feed,
Devour me,
Down Cannibal Road

Siphoned off to feed the family,
You fill our darkened souls with light,
We laugh and revel in your good taste,
Drag our nails across your face.

The night escapes and fills our house,
The light enters our starving mouths,
The red glow that illuminates,
Gone.

A crab mentality,
Sinks its claws into me,
Feed on humanity,
Down Cannibal Road
My speciality,
Too many mouths to feed,
Devour me,
Down Cannibal Road

The air is thick with ghosts and blood,
Our children sick, our name is mud,
Wipe the colour from your eyes,
Keep the red, not black and white.
The air is thick with ghosts and blood,
Our children sick, our name is mud,
Wipe the colour from your eyes,
See red, not black and white.
Track Name: Parts Unknown
They'll tell you they found me at the side of the road,
Inhaling gold spraypaint through my mouth,
My name on my shirt,
Obscured with blood,
My theme tune rings out.

Left for dead,
Forgotten, abandoned,
I finally made my way home,
The people said I must have been through hell,
I come from Parts Unknown.

We hail,
from Parts Unknown,
We finally made it home,
We hail,
From Parts Unknown,
Warriors!

They tell you "Don't listen to a word that he says",
But they'll never understand what I meant,
The weak, they mock from a safe distance,
Because the strong make too much fucking sense.

Left in the wasteland,
Survived radiation,
Your pathetic venom can't kill,
We are the voice of unification,
A Brotherhood of Steel.

We hail,
from Parts Unknown,
We finally made it home,
We hail,
From Parts Unknown,
Warriors!

Warriors! Come out to play!
Track Name: Arcadia
The jaws of boredom, never know when to stop,
Wasting every minute hanging helpless from the clock.
I looked away to late, my eyes are now black holes,
Electrify these withered hands, re-volt my soul.

Playing the wrong game,
The children sell their souls,
But it will never change.

Playing the wrong game,
To the tune of silver and gold,
Waiting for the change.

WHAT THE FUCK ARE WE DOING? Is this your gods divine vision?
Cutting away our lives with expert precision.
I watch from outside as you blow your remaining credits,
I am the next in line. Nobody will forget it.

Playing the wrong game,
The children sell their souls,
But it will never change.

Playing the wrong game,
To the tune of silver and gold,
Waiting for the change.

The cables into our brains have grown too deep to disconnect,
Biomechanoid parasites, our bodies are shrines to disrespect,
Wheezing anaemic weaklings wasted on a worthless prize,
The human heart has gone, our future's digitised.

Pulling myself apart, I've unplugged, won't reconnect,
The Iron Man, Tetsuo, my body a fucking wreck,
A man machine lies useless, broken, disintigrated,
Now your man-made god lies deactivated.

Playing the wrong game,
The children sell their souls,
But it will never change.

Playing the wrong game,
To the tune of silver and gold,
Waiting for the change.
Track Name: The Screaming Skull
I buried her in the cold, cold ground,
I was out of my mind, I put her out of sight,
Now when I sleep, wake up with the sound,
Of the screams she made this time that night.

Did you push me? Could I not resist?
There was soil in your mouth & rope burn wrists.
I'd be lying if I said it didn't feel right,
Burying you in the moonlight.

I still hear you,
In my dreams,
The screaming starts again.
I still hear you,
In my darkest dreams,
The screaming starts again.

Years have passed, life has moved on,
I maintain and destroy, dose after dose,
Inhale, I watch another day dawn,
But I don't sleep as dawn draws close.

I killed you, why won't you die?
With the vision of your face, burnt in eyes,
Cursed forever with that noise,
Cursed forever with your voice.

I still hear you,
In my dreams,
The screaming starts again.
I still hear you,
In my darkest dreams,
The screaming starts again.

This is no dream, I heard her scream,
Pluck her from her makeshift tomb,
I hear her voice or so it seems,
"You'll be down here with us soon"

Below the surface like so many lost ships,
Comes laughter from her skinless lips,
The silent sound peace?
I will never sleep.

I still hear you,
In my dreams,
The screaming starts again.
I still hear you,
In my darkest dreams,
The screaming starts again.
