Track Name: Shadows Across the Desert
They walk as shadows,
their souls turned to dust,
traveling as ghosts

They walked as shadows across the desert
skirting walls meant as cages
fearing humans dressed as coyotes
looking to work for plenty in the land of scarcity

They walked as shadows
their souls turned to dust beneath America's greed
bodies wasted for a tourist's dime
Suffering, hidden in plain sight
they worked to support family
Sending their life in the form of currency
to countries decimated by free trade
all so our coffee can be cheap.

They walked as shadows,
Traveling as ghosts
Do you see them when you consume?
People strong and proud
forced into poverty for cheap plastic toys.

When you choose not to care
Our dreams and words fall as dust upon the ground.

They walked as shadows across the desert
Skirting walls meant as cages
to bring you a life of consumer joy.
Track Name: A Life Of Rot And Decay
The sky has turned grey
small glimpses of a sunny world seen in street puddles
barely felt through crippled hands
and you thought life was all flowers, nectar, and sugary bits.

Here and now! Everything breaks down
Here and now! Bear witness with blind eyes wide to the sky

Bitter taste, acrid smells
We're all caught up in a life of rot and decay
Entropy is our only rule
As you're falling through clouds of acid tears

Here and now! Everything breaks down
Here and now! Bear witness with blind eyes wide to the sky

Scavenging color from the dead to brighten life
add some glitter, it sparkles of pollution
We're at the end, striving for something more
but even butterflies drink blood.

Here and now! Everything breaks down
Here and now! Bear witness with blind eyes wide to the sky
Track Name: Disgusting Beauty
no animals were hurt.

no animals were harmed.


The bounce of your hair, its wonderful shine
your body looks so fine,
those cosmetics have done a wonder to hide your disgusting mind

Your bounce and shine,
perfected on animals
Your body so fine,
cultivated in rooms of cruelty
Burned and blinded,
animals were sacrificed for that smooth skin

Oh my, those cosmetics have done wonders to hide
your disgusting mind.

Irradiated, starved, isolated

rabbits, cats, dogs, mice, monkeys,
horses, reptiles, cows, pigs, fish, and birds...

Irradiated, starved, isolated,

sacrifices at the altar of your disgusting beauty
