Track Name: Depravity (Featuring Rhys Gahan of Dropbears)
I'm sorry but I can't forget that there's voices in my head
ties that bind convincing me to sink
I'll try and search for the light
right before the sunsets
but this captain sinks with his ship

I'll part the seas for a sense of clarity
and scale mountain tops to find myself
destined to spend a lifetime alone
these clouds that hang above us
have slowly turned to wolves

Born to be another cog in this machine
we are stuck on repeat
monolithic catastrophes
Born to be another cog in this machine
we are stuck on repeat
monolithic catastrophes

Disillusioned by streets paved with gold
we are worthless souls
our hands worked to the bone

How can you fall asleep at night
pretending it's alright
and wake up everyday just waiting to die
We are the product
of a world so lost and fucked up
living each day with an expiry date
caught up in and endless cycle
is this all we have left

Condemned before we began
there's no dignity in this
Condemned before we began
there's no dignity in this

Our forefathers who paved the way
they sold our souls
and dug our graves

Will we be nothing more
than another nine to five slave
our worthless souls carved into histories page
will each breath I take be the catalyst for change
will my end justify my means

We are the product of a world so lost and fucked up
Do our lives hold any meaning?

(Wake up)
Make it worth your while break up before you are chained up
(Wake up)
set the world on fire it's yours and only yours so blaze up
I'm feeling like the black sheep In this heap
fuck
the way we think it's all winks no blinks
fallen victims to the money jinx.
and I will use this constant bark
to change where we all start
and break the molds with my art
cause we are stuck in repetition
its tradition the human submission.
is there no ambition?
I'm a train off its tracks no time to relax

Our forefathers who paved the way
they sold our souls
and dug our graves

I can finally see
the world for what it really is
and I've spent my life waiting
for it to end
I can finally see
the world for what it really is
and I've spent my whole life waiting
for it to end
caught up in a slew of pointless routines

We all want to live forever
but what the fuck does it all mean?
We wall want to live forever
but what the fuck does it all mean?
Track Name: Royal Blood
I'll take the throne and the crown you stole from me
I hope you die alone, You're nothing
keep telling yourself i've change
only a coward blames others for his mistakes

I put my trust in you (I put my trust in you)

thick as thieves although my patience is thin
i can see you're weak, and your colours are showing
I wont let my bridges burn
when will you learn the truth hurts (the truth hurts)

you were the one who threw this away
Buried alive in a shallow grave

hollow vessels are always the loudest

How can you have a clear conscience with a mind so corrupt

these vultures will not bring salvation
you'll be left here to fucking rot

In time you will see that even the greatest kings will bleed

I stood and watched as your empire burned and all your friends treated like dirt
I wont take the blame for all of your mistakes
and if you held loyalty in the same vein as blood from royalty it wouldn't be so hard to say

You were a brother to me

No amends every road leads to a dead end
you can't run and hide behind your blinding lights
But i'll hold my head up high (But i'll hold my head up high)

we were family
at least i'll admit that
but you can't deny the facts
step the fuck back

you were the one who tied your noose
pushed us away and now we're laughing at you

I stood and watched as your empire burned
there were no amends
every road leads to dead ends
fuck
