Track Name: Everything is Meaningless
(Ecclesiastes 1 v.1-12)
The words of the Teacher, son of David,
king in Jerusalem.

"Meaningless! Meaningless!"
says the Teacher.
"Utterly meaningless!
Everything is meaningless!"

What does man gain from all his labor
at which he toils under the sun?
Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.
The sun rises and the sun sets,
and hurries back to where it rises.
The wind blows to the south
and turns to the north;
round and round it goes,
ever returning on its course.
All the streams flow into the sea,
yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from,
there they return again.
All things are wearisome,
more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing,
nor the ear its fill of hearing.
What has been done will be done again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.
"Look! This is something new"?

It was here already, long ago;
it was here before our time.

There is no remembrance of men of old,
and even those who are yet to come
will not be remembered
by those follow.
Track Name: Revolver
Existence, precedes essence.
You desire
comfort, solace.
The very nature of
the human condition.
The need to feel important.
To be special
To feel wanted.

Don't shut this out.
It's inside of you and you know it.
he feeds your weakness.
Inflates your ego.
he will get, what he wants.
he knows you better than you do.
You think he is you.
You dare not break the investment,
Your only friend.
The root of all evil lies in pride.

Self worth is meaningless.
Pride is meaningless.
Let the i.d. survive
your super ego die
Few parts of him are true,
the rest is a lie.

Stop thinking you're in control
You're not
You never were free.
You've been owned by the greatest enemy
You'd never find his hiding place.
It's been in your head this whole time.
Do away with pride.
Give each external what they want,
they are not your enemies.
Let them have their fix,
inflate theirs to destroy yours.
Use your perceived enemy to destroy your real enemy.
Don't waste your life, pleasing him.
You were dead from the start.

The judge, the victim,
the pain you feel.
The ego gone evil
your id has died.

Living for others
approval of actions.
Confide in your emptiness,
Wait at death's door.

Your false self shows your true self's flaws.
Your false self shows your true self's flaws.

Your flaws are, what makes you human.
Stop living like you're dying.
You live in fear like its all going to end.
In the end we all die.

Why cherish what is comfort?
You'll never remember those days.
Be alive, do what your judge
tells you not to do.
Saving face, never saved a life.
All it does is make you feel comfort.
It's all a lie, a fallacy,
to please others image of you.

Your bad memories only feed him
feeding him things to make him stronger.
While he knows every button to push
to make you live his pain.

Stop, get out of my head.
I am done with this pain.

All this ego
taking my fears
makes him stronger
you will gain little
I will prevail
I will am done with this

Open this world
show me the light.
Help me to see what
I cannot see.
I want to be free
I want to see
What I've been missing
all of my life.
Help me to grow.
Help me to see
what this world does to me.
I must let go

I need to break this.
God help me.

I can't do this all on my own.
Show me how to break my fear.
So I can prove my existence.
My fears are nothing.

The judge has no power
to control my thoughts and words.
Let the chips fall wherever they may.
Let's transcend what we know.
Let's think beyond what our limits are.
Let's live this life living like we're alive.

We have the power
to control ourselves
but first we have to know
we are not in control

We think we are but that is what he wants us to think.

We're not in control.

I know I am what I am.
I am nothing more.
I am nothing more.
I am nothing more.
I am nothing more.
Track Name: Pluralism
If it works for you, it works for you.
and I can not force my view
The people crying, their hearts dividing.
What good is this going to do?
I want to be free, I want you to be me
but that won't make me, free at all.

You want to thrive, to stay inside
but I'd rather die in all
What's it to you?

Can we just forge our paths
as we are guided by
the driving force behind our lives
the guardian of our own minds.
Because your view is only yours
and my God is it, taking its course
Don't force the world
or it will bite you back.

Cuz I've had enough of this
I'm just wading in through these shallow waters
You try to drown me in.

Can we just forge our paths
as we are guided by
the driving force behind our lives
the guardian of our own minds.
Because your view is only yours
and my God is it, taking its course
Don't force the world
or it will bite you back.

If you can't do it then you can't do it
and I cannot force your hand.
Take your fix cuz its good for you
know matter what your heart is telling you.
And all I do, all I do
is question why
you'd ever think I'd follow you and all of your ways.
