Track Name: Ruins
Crawl outta holes and climb out of basements
And take your first steps out into The Wastelands

Monuments that couldn’t stand
Destroy!
Rebuild again and again and again and again and again
The planners made their plans

What could have, what should have been
The land that time forgot
Began reclaiming
The land that turned to lots
The last remaining

Evidence of the existence of man
He shaped his world with stone and steel
Watched it turn to sand
It slipped right through our hands

Rise up reclaim your ruined earth
Destroy/rebuild again!
Track Name: Manufactured Distraction
The only thing that every one of us has in common
Is that we all will die
Tonight, tomorrow, it makes no difference
So many paths left to unfold
Too many parables to be told

Why even try explaining
Common senses to the deaf, blind and dumb?
What do they feel when there’s nothing to be won?
Trying to rise against the setting of the sun

But all you ever do is squabble over how disparate their lives,
Their beliefs, are from yours

Exclusive like Star-Bellied Sneeches
Engorged blood sucking leeches
Attached to the limbs of the shambling dead
Reliant on sustenance provided
Blinders on
They never realize that without us they’d shrivel up and die

The history of the passed
Outweighs all this pettiness
Understand the deceased are in the majority
What’s with all this hostility?

Why even try explaining
Common senses to the deaf, blind and dumb?
What do they feel when there’s nothing to be won?
Trying to rise against the setting of the sun

A frigid chill hits the streets
And petrifies our bones
Where the end lies
Nobody knows
Track Name: Zealots
Brothers and sisters
The time has come
Rejoice!
The rapture has now begun

We faithful few
Committed to The Word
Soon the bombs will drop
And take us home

Gather round my loyal children
God’s wrath is at hand
A wave of destruction
Shall erase the sins of man
Time for ascension
Prepare your souls
Our righteousness prevails

Our vigilance against the heathens will be rewarded
Amidst the obliteration, we will rise triumphant

Gather round my loyal children
God’s wrath is at hand
A wave of destruction
Shall erase the sins of man
Time for ascension
Prepare your souls
Our righteousness prevails

Let the sinners burn
In eternal fire
We will watch with glee
From up on high

One moment of painful bliss
And all earthly troubles will be swept away

Face your faith!
Embrace the end!
Only moments now...
Track Name: Andromeda II: The Iron Hawk of Death
Suffocating
Supply of oxygen running low
The sight before my eyes
Defied description

We heard the garbled transmitted reports
But the mushroom clouds were the final confirmation

No planet left
Claustrophobia setting in
Survival unlikely
I’ve eaten all the rations
I think I’m losing my mind
Do I risk re-entry
Or perish in the dark?

Die slow or die like the others?
Can I pilot this thing alone?
Our mission was so simple
How did it come to this?

There’s no way we could have prepared for this situation
I couldn’t take the easy way out

And if I manage to get out alive
The stench of their bodies will haunt me forever
Suit up, let’s finish this now
Before I fall to this madness
Am I doomed to drift through the vacuum?
I could be the last man alive

No other option
I have only death to fear
Hands grip the controls
I’m coming home!
Track Name: The Last Working Watch in the West
The circle track we’re running’s all blood and dust
Our feet are draggin’ but we’re digging ruts
The whip's cracking gives me hope because
It means that someone else still gives a fuck

Eyes wide as you race the sun
Feeling tired, yea, you’ve just begun
That sick feeling in your gut again
Look left and throw it up again
Keep moving or the whip will win
It’s sure as hell beaten better men

Torment their minds so that they know not what they do
Gouge out their eyes so that they see not where they go
Stuck in perpetual motion
Time stands still
Track Name: The Motesharrei Report
Tensions are rising
No one trusts each other
Your money buys nothing
Famine, poverty, and war
This isn’t working any more

The violence grew
At first, no one knew
The depths to how far they’d go
When their backs were against the wall

Futile prayers in every language
Hurled toward the sky
“What could we have done different?!”
The news stirred the paranoia
Exacerbated by the lies

We tore each other apart
Animalistic tendencies
Escalated tactics
And mathematic contingencies

The privileged learned through social media
Some countries rioted in the streets
Others knew nothing
But in the end,
No one was spared
Our fate was intertwined
