Track Name: We Are Never Getting Out Of Here
Penultimate destination,
Few aboard have been before
Filled with sudden foreboding
I have no wish to go ashore

We make safe our landing
But as we stow our wares
Dark clouds on the horizon
Only compound my fears

We are never getting out of here
With our lives and sanity
Never to see home or kin
This I know with certainty

Our business completed
We return to the docks
A sudden storm front rising
Vessel smashed upon the rocks

We are never getting out of here
With our lives and sanity
Never to see home or kin
This I know with certainty
Such dreadful certainty

Dreams of
My home
Haunt me
Every single night
Something
Building
Inside
I must let it out

One night in the tavern I hear
A familiar voice
A merchant from my homeland
I do not have a choice

As he leaves I Follow
And when we are alone
Unsheath my knife and quietly
I slit his throat

Swaddled in his cloak
I board his ship
The arms men of the watch
Know that I am not him

We are never getting out of here
With our lives and sanity
Never to see home or kin
This I know with certainty

I am never getting out of here
My life is forfeit
Imprisoned its remainder
For the throat I slit
This I know with certainty
…Absolute certainty
Track Name: Corporate Cannibal Congress
Several billion breeding stock
More born every day
Exponentially increasing
They have known no other way
Limited resources make them
Difficult to feed
Lives of ceaseless wanting
But still they breed

Like vermin they crawl
Disregarding all
Heed only the call
To consume

As we are their leaders
We know the hard truth
The land no longer feed us
Polluted and overused
Oceans are exhausted
No longer sustain life
The population cannot know
We would be engulfed in strife

A moderate proposal
Elegant indeed

Synthesised foodstuffs have been a great success
Some current product lines are renowned as the best
I propose a sister product similar to these
Harvested from an untapped resource
Recently revealed to me
Encourage the old and sick to end their lives in our clinics
They will suffer less this way, be less burden on the state

Unbridled population expansion led us to this fate
We must take action now, though it may already be too late

A moderate proposal
Elegant indeed
Proffer your objections but
How else can we meet this need?

The protein produced
Must be put to use
And so it shall be
Recycled into feed
Recycled into feed
Track Name: Gorillas Wear Glasses
Chaos consumes this world
No power to arbitrate
Who will enforce morality
But we who are blessed with the might

Millions every day, subject to atrocities
Preventable suffering caused by human greed
Widespread oppression, profit driven famine,
Deaths from curable disease but not for lack of medicine
We are obliged to make it right because we have the
Power needed to force compliance
Profits should be secondary
Human life comes first

So we set our task… to rid the world of its wrongs
How many there are… we must be strong
But we will remain resolute in adversity
Any who oppose us, they will win our enmity
We will tell them what is right, enforced with an iron fist
Stand in our way? Let’s just say you won’t be missed
Sequestered away from society
Everything you know, will be known to us eventually

Chaos consumes this world
No power to arbitrate
Who can enforce morality?

We who are strong!

Over time we become
What once we abhorred
The tyrannical rulers
Exponents of terror
Enforcing our will
Through violent means

Only our way is right
Dictated from on high
Validity is mine with
No need for reason
No need for reason
Track Name: The Witch's Ball Bag
Let me tell you a story
Of the artifact that I seek
It will tell me of my future
And the conquests I will lead

The Witch's Ballbag
Crystal ball inside

Her fortress lies in the wastelands
Enticing unwary travellers
Ensnared by her defences
Inevitably consumed by her

The crystal ball itself
Is no mere enchanted sphere
Ancient technologies cause
Temporal filters to disappear

Consuming souls to live
The ballbag is her bait
Luring adventurers
To meet a gruesome fate

The Witch's Ballbag
Crystal ball inside
Transcending futures
It will be mine
