Lyrics

1.    In Human Sight (Instrumental)
2.    Cage Bound

Human sight has been missing
Bouncing off those concrete walls
They are gone now, the last cash cows
And they cannot make a sound
New blood’s here, dreary eyed
Their turn comes, the cage bound

Beasts in men’s clothing
Preying on the weak
That’s all they’ve known

There’s no judgment, no one’s watching
All are bastards of no lord
They are fragments , only infants
And they cannot live for long
New blood’s here, dreary eyed
Their turn comes, the cage bound

Beasts in men’s clothing
Preying on the weak
That’s all they’ve known

Broken, replaceable vessels
Of fake necessity
Known, collateral damage
The taste of conformity

3.    House of Slaughter

The cold white floor
Shines red bleakness
There’s no way back
There’s no way out

Gone is the sun
gone are the fields
Weight turns to gold
and scraps of souls

Breeding, feeding,
Weighing, herding,
Culling, tagging
Fertilizing, agonizing,
Brutalizing

We always walk
Where they lead us
We always trust
The laden path

We are the pawns
Of this planet
But what is won
When we are gone

4.    Inside a Square

He was born inside a square
And everyone came by to stare
There’s a reason, they would say
And wouldn’t let him go

He was tamed and beaten down
For mindless tricks and guiltless fun
The world outside has been denied
What pride was left was cast aside

He has lived inside a square
And everyone just didn’t care
There’s a reason, they would say
And wouldn’t let him go

Then one day the square fell down
And he was out but wouldn’t run
The things outside are just not clear
What’s near is far and what’s far is near

Use me as a trick
Use me just for fun
I’m in every place
I’m in every time
I’m not yours to keep
I’m not mine to have
Who does really care
If I’m inside a square

5.    The Blind Spot

Our comfort spills over edges
We live a cozy, simple life
But something is happening out there
Done in our names
And it never happens to us

Always looking away
embracing the blind spot

Truth is a sad fact we try to ignore
We left the dirty work to others
Whatever happens out there
We are just the consumers
And it never happens to us

6.    Condiments and Blood

An ancient tale of enslavement
Evolved into a modern affair
Where condiments and blood
Are on a plate side by side

Cruelty disappears beneath tradition’s dust
Empathy bows down to taste glands that lust
Bones forever gone from morality’s eyes
Those without tears sound their final cry

7.    Science Moved On

This is the lab
This is the world
Science has moved on
Without us

This must be hell
This is the truth
Science has moved on
Without us

8.    Part of the Fold

Am I part of the fold
Trampling a voiceless crowd
Am I part of the mold
Keeping on being cowed

Habit and tradition
Convenience and taste

Can I shed my fallacy
Finding what’s left to find
Can I contest the decree
Ignore the mines of the mind

9.    We Bleed for Real

You say a god created us
A tool to feed believers
Who cut our flesh
And wear our skin
And test our mind

We’re no bleeding hearts
We bleed for real
No clergy prays for us
When blood is spilled

It’s a crooked world we live in
A life that’s not our own
With a destiny
Set in stone
Our shrieks are but a drone

10.   Voiceless

We are gathered
Here in this place
Gathered but still alone
We are the voiceless
We are the weak
Our words are not here

You can only save
What you can never let go
Don’t let us go
If heaven is yours
If heaven is yours
What’s left for us?

These are the feedlots
Take off the blindfolds

We have been hiding
In the shadows of time
Hiding and still alone
Lost in plain sight
Lost in plain sight
Open your eyes
