Track Name: Abject Pax
In this peace we are complacent
In this peace we are apathetic and
It's this peace we are sold in this abject pax
Track Name: Mind & Body
There's a room in the back of my mind
A place I've never seen before
It all looks so familiar until I come across a door

To a Place I've always known
But never realized
that tiny point of interest subconsciously occupied

There's a pain that I've always known
A white knuckled tension that won't go away
It aches in my joints and abuses my bowels
My mind is at ease so my body must pay

A pain I've always known
But never realized
The negative relation
Of my body and my mind
Track Name: Selfish hands
How must it feel to have such worth
To yield only returns
To ignore a thousand other faces
To never empathize a bit with the same expectations

How must it feel to have such worth
To yield only returns
It's funny to think that anybody couldn't see
Cause and effect or equality

Taking what
Is rightfully
Within reach of selfish hands

It's easy to be selfish
But where to draw the line
Do we owe each other nothing
And only give for piece of mind
To feel as deserving as any other man
While taking what is rightfully within reach of selfish hands
Track Name: Not Morals
To what degree are we governed by
The property and interests and salaries of servants
Law is a stranglehold ingrained

Recognized as values or as justification
It's not mistaken when it's written on smug faces
Law is a stranglehold ingrained
Not morals

recognized as values or as justification
It's not mistaken when it's written on smug faces
Maintaining status quo
The currency of snakes

But times are changing and laws are not
But from panopticism to omnipotence
As the scale tips in favor
to those who would support their cause

Age old standards
Age old Laws, punishments
Not Morals
