Track Name: Overlord
What is the value of a single human life?
There's no answer to be found as I'm sifting through your mind
I pick apart the contents and I browse through your lies
As you shake and writhe in ecstasy, how could you be so blind?

You're enslaved to a system that convinced you to obey
You built these walls around us and constructed your own chains
I grow tired of this game and I'm sick of your display
Open your eyes for a moment, and look at what you've made

(The reason people go on killing sprees and shoot up schools is because we're raised in this medicated cradle society where we're taught to be docile and complacent, and any behavior that's considered abnormal is immediately diagnosed and medicated. We're taught from birth to deny our instincts, and every time we act on them we are shamed. Combine this with an enormous pressure to go to college and succeed, and you have a volatile soup. These feelings bottle up and sometimes the human mind will snap, it can only take so much.)

Overlord, look at me and tell me what you've done
What goes into your sick campaign every time you run?
In their hearts you're making notches, in their brains you're drilling holes
But you'll never own me until you've taken my soul

Overlord, close your eyes and tell me what you see
What makes you think you're any better than me?
I will not submit to you
Overlord, fear me, I am truth
Track Name: Barbs
Excuse me for a moment while I clear the room
I'm so sorry, I never meant to break the silence
But it's time to tell me how my words become my tomb
And go drink your prayers from the silver spoon

Let's end the distraction of our blackened feud
My fear is the depth of your sanity
A wilted blossom like the one I gave you far too soon
My friend, once again I've sheltered your cocoon

Barbs in our flesh, tearing through our skin
These concepts in our minds, these splinters in our eyes
For a fraction of a second I am here alone
Searching for and end and only finding new beginnings

Why still do you break away from sanity?
We already have to many broken minds
I wish you would learn sometime to keep your fucking mouth shut
Shut the fuck up, just shut the fuck up

What you really are was hiding in my sight
(Our guilty pleasures kept in check lest they define ourselves)
Soon you'll wish me here, bathing in the light
How many times do I have to fight? Don't make me admit that my conscience was right

Barbs in our flesh, tearing through our skin
These concepts in our minds, these splinters in our eyes
For a fraction of a second I am here alone
Searching for and end and only finding new beginnings
