Track Name: A Domain of Division
A Domain of Division (The Grand Chessboard)

A domain of division, channeled through all circuits,
The vast bureaucracy, seemingly limitless,
The propaganda tube, false houses of worship,
How much you feed the fire, deems what your status is,
Eternal damnation, based on orientation,
Which color best suits you, is it red or is it blue,
The hue of your casing, geographical location,
The regurgitation, of so-called education,

These are the manners in which they divide, its a stranglehold on the mind,
The estranged populace, naive obedience, ensuring our own demise,
Societal systems based on lies, its a game of divide and conquer,
Strategically the pawns played, pitted, against eachother on the grand chessboard,

They hide the truth, we all are one, this is a dream, a collective, experience, on, classroom earth,

A domain of division, channeled through all circuits,
The vast bureaucracy, seemingly limitless,
The propaganda tube, false houses of worship,
How much you feed the fire, deems what your status is,
Eternal damnation, based on orientation,
Which color best suits you, is it red or is it blue,
The hue of your casing, geographical location,
The regurgitation, of so-called education,

These are the manners in which they divide, its a stranglehold on the mind,
The estranged populace, naive obedience, ensuring our own demise,
Societal systems based on lies, its a game of divide and conquer,
Strategically the pawns played, pitted, against eachother on the grand chessboard,

They hide the truth, we all are one, a collective lesson, in consciousness.
Track Name: Holographic Prison Bars
HOLOGRAPHIC PRISON BARS

"Hey kid get back to work, you've got your grave to dig,
You better learn to like it, we tell you how it is.
There'll be no questions here, you've got a job to do,
I said you better like it, because of us it's all that you'll know."

Many a thousand years dark clouds been cast upon, the precious, unpretentious, universal mind of man,
False hopes and dreams run rampant, aspirations led astray, conceived, and molded, with leverage to perfection,
These holographic prison bars, as real as you allow them,
These holographic prison bars, will soon crash down around them.

Now go. It will soon be the day,
Where these restraints are no more,
The end to this, superficial state of awareness.

"We see you've wandered off again from the docile pasture, we told you to get back in line,
Now you see that forfeits your end of the bargain to your life, unfortunately, you give us, not but one choice.

(we tried to warn you, we tried to warn you)

There is a penalty for those who try to crack the matrix, we have a multitude of ways,
Lets just say that we have our assets ready to go at will, they will ensure, another, word is never said.

(we tried to warn you, we tried to warn you)"

Don't fret the dark suits' scare tactics,
They are on their last leg.
A brand new dawn is rising,
Not in their best interest.
Centuries of greed and corruption,
All boils down to this.
My, the sun, it burns so hot,
The onslaught of energetic bliss.

Understand the world around you, is not what youve known it is,
An establishment imprisonment psyop, thats what we're dealing with.
Influenced left brain bondage, has the masses taken captive,
Unaware of, unknowing, thats how dexterous it is.

Its time to let it go.

Many a thousand years dark clouds been cast upon, the precious, unpretentious, universal mind of man
False hopes and dreams run rampant, aspirations led astray, conceived, and molded, with leverage to perfection,
These holographic prison bars, as real as you allow them,
These holographic prison bars, will soon crash down around them.

Will soon crash down around them.

My, the sun it fucking burns, the darkness fades away,
Ensuing the ribbon of vibrational ecstacy.
Track Name: Fiat Helotry
FIAT HELOTRY

This fiat helotry,

Beaten down, battered and bruised,
These shackles come factory,
Satisfaction misled and abused,
Pure theatrical hierarchy
Life valued, in dollar bills,
Forged into slavery,
The strongest prisons, reside in The Hills,
Relentless sentient hijacking,

Gears of society, based on a house of cards,
A global edifice, incendiarily made of straw,
Lifetimes of servitude, to benefit the nil percent,
They hold these truths from you, guaranteed mass self-confinement,

A planets worth of labor devised on a fraud, the rat race sure runs strong,
A blow out sale, right down the street, these fucking treadmills are all the heat,
Embedded deep within the frontal lobe, imprudent strings the puppeteer behold,
Fueling the fire, beguiled desire, disjointed from humanity,
Disjointed from humanity

Hypnotized by design,
A small cabal, pulling the strings,
The media, presents a dream,
Reading the script, and spreading the meme's

Saying "Hey...shut up slaves

Look over there,
There's nothing to see here,
Now back to the hampster wheel,
You owe us your wage"

Beaten down, battered and bruised,
These shackles come factory,
Satisfaction misled and abused,
Pure theatrical hierarchy,
The dangling carrot, in front of the mule,
Following these induced rules,
This system of drudgery,
Lack of apprehending the real you,
Life valued, in dollar bills,
Forged into slavery,
The strongest prisons, reside in The Hills,
Relentless sentient hijacking,

Gears of society, based on a house of cards,
A global edifice, incendiarily made of straw,
Lifetimes of servitude, to benefit the nil percent,
They hold these truths from you, guaranteed mass self-confinement,

They hold these truths. From You.
Track Name: Messages from the Void
Messages from the Void

From the oceans of emptiness, the celestial void,
Peering upon this tiny blue marble, till the time to deploy,
Eagerly monitoring, the awakening of this paradigm,
The crossroads of rebirth or slavery, looms closer now,

Looms closer now,

Our genetic relatives, holding the key, (one of three)
Unlocking the mind must be done, very delicately,
The powers, that be, humanity's enemy,
Pulling out all their last tricks to keep this, from happening,

It's happening,

Attend to your intuition,
Wake the diety within,
Guided from the astral planes,
As true north will be reclaimed,

Many minds, will be blown,
Discovering these truths be told,

The law, of non-intervention, being, put to the side,
The, events to unfold, highly, prioritized,

Now you must take the mask off

3, 2, 1, 1 : 1, 1, GO!

The vibrational substinance of consiousness harmonizing on this sphere,
Projecting outwards through the macrocosm, to the vastness of the interstellar sea,

All eyes on us, we hold the fate,
The affecting, vibrational state.

Attend to your intuition,
Wake the diety within,
Guided from the astral planes,
As true north will be reclaimed,

From the oceans of emptiness, the celestial void,
Peering upon this tiny blue marble, till the time to deploy,
Eagerly monitoring, the awakening of this paradigm,
The crossroads of rebirth or slavery, looms closer now,
Our genetic relatives, holding the key, (one of three)
Unlocking the mind must be done, very delicately,
The powers, that be, humanity's enemy,
Pulling out all their last tricks to keep this, from happening,

Attend to your intuition,
Wake the diety within,
Guided from the astral planes,
As true north will be reclaimed
