Track Name: Thousand Year Fire
Yeah we shit on your culture
We desecrate your grave
We're the media vultures
We're the chemical slaves

Climb the hill
Step on the throat
Ignore the ones
Pushed down the slope

It's the American way
It's the American way

Right down the line
Right down the line

See what we've built
On your old empire
It's a god damn landfill
And a thousand year fire

And when you see the pieces in place
You'll know we'll do it again and again
Again

Sift through the ashes of the thousand year fire
Track Name: False Progress
Civil unrest
Flame engulf house
False progress
This was always the south
Beaten in the street
Crushed by the shield
Secret police
Overseer of the field

No street is safe
Dogs at bay

Short of breath
Eyes forced shut
Of life bereft
Body lies in the rut

The son of man
Hate begotten

Civil unrest
Flame engulf house
False progress
This was always the south
Track Name: Pedestals
We place them on pedestals
That can't bare the weight
Snakes and liars
Control your fate

True potential
Never
Realized
Hopes and dreams
Subsidized
It's a policy
Based on
Fiction

Invoke your masters
Trust every word
Cling tight to book and steel
I'll cull the herd

They know not what they do
They know not what they do

Incompetent
No confidence
A false sense of
Accomplishment

There's nothing left
There's nothing left to give
There's nothing left
But we want it this way
But we made it this way
There's nothing left
There's nothing left to give
There's nothing
But we want it this way
But we made it this way
Complacency
Will lead us to our demise
Track Name: Return To Earth
Raze this
Raze this
Raze this
Raze this town

Ancient mound
Peaks of filth
Scorch the ground
Return to earth
Track Name: Dying Breed
You and me
Are a dying breed
Take a drag
Suck it in
Feel it course
Under your skin

Deviate
From the norm
Misery
Accept as born
Follow your form

Even as my systems falter
I still kneel at this altar
We do it to feel alive
But we're really closer to death

Self destruction
Is not a choice
It's what I have to do
Programmed to be born anew
It's what I have to do

Self destruction
Is not a choice
It's what I have to do
Programmed to be born anew
It's what I have to do

Live for
Track Name: Air Grows Thin
You said you won't
You said you'd never give in
Now you're hanging from the tops of the rafters
Now I join you in sin

And when the air grows thin
We'll watch the fire move in

I tear you down with hatred
Bitter resentment of my soul
No matter how hard I tried to stop the lashing
I burned every bridge I know

This house it creaks and moans
Beams break through fragile bones
Foundations crack and break
Eyes close beneath the lake

Mortal slave
Cosmic grave

Pray for death
No sweet release
No rest in peace
Pray for death
No sweet release
No rest in peace
