about

Theme album about lack of conscience and compassion. The characters in the songs either lack empathy or live or work with people who do. Some are just egoistic others narcissists. And then there are the psychopaths.

Track Name: Persuasion Rocks
So I killed a bird today
Threw a rock right at it
Watched it fall silently
Writhing on the ground

I just do as they did at school
When I was the target
I fell without a sound
And broke without cracks

Today I pass my pain to others
Today I transfer death

Everyday I carry a smile
Just above my tie
Now they follow my orders
And I smile as they did

I rule with an iron fist
Now I got their attention
My persuation is rocks
Gathered in my pockets

Today I pass my pain to others
Today I transfer death

Measure my conscience
Scrutinize to determine its weight
Measure my guilt
See how much I care
Measure my consciense
If you can find it
You'll find it's got
Zero weight

My life is a void today
My inside torn to pulp
I just communicate
By throwing rocks

I pass the pain on
I transfer death

I got my pockets full of rocks
Persuation!
Persuation rocks!
Track Name: Womens High Boots
Womens high boots black suede
Gonna tread all over me
Got to pull them off her feet
Before I die

Woman don't you know me
I want to please you
But you're not happy
Unless I blead

Why don't you
Why won't you
Why can't you

Womens high boots black suede
Gonna tread all over me
She lets her sunshine out
And burn me with her smile
She lets her sunshine out
And burn me with her smile
Track Name: Behind Fences
While the poor live in the city of ghosts
We can offer you a piece of our heaven
Real estate in the suburb to the silver city
Always protected by angels with swords

No one here is different or difficult somehow
And nothing can threaten our way of life
Everyone here have got the same family values
And our gardens are tidy and all look the same

The ruling feces likes to gather in groups where no one can feel their stench. Their way of life is to suck the lifeforce out of others and turn it to shit, for their own amusement of course since they are covered anyway. To the untrained eye the ruling feces appear quite clean and healthy, but under their costumes and dresses they are rotten and foul, often filled with parasites and fungus. If you get to close you might get trapped in one of their factories for the rest of your life.

The view here is somewhat obscured by the fences
That is a small price to pay for security
We monitor each and everyone of us to see
That no one deviates from our belives
Holy guardian angels watch us day and night
Everyone is a missionary here as far as they can see

Personal integrety is something the ruling feces never had to worry about of before the matter of security arised. No one used to have access to their playgrounds so they could pretty much do whatever they wanted in their backyard barbecue orgies. Now the perversions of the feces takes place outside of their gated community, cunningly hidden to avoid detection and unpopularity among the unsuspecting masses.
Track Name: The City Ghost
The city surrounds me
Devours my identity
I am one ghost of many
Utterly insignificant

My life is waiting for the
Constant passing of time
I got no human connections
No one that makes me care

I am a ghost
Fading into obscurity

I sit alone at my couch
When I'm not at work
My mind is an emty void
Occupied by death

The only time I'm alive
Is in my intoxicated escape
Then there is nothing
That can touch my mind

I am a ghost
Fading into obscurity
And there are millions like me

I don't belong in this world
But whoever does
I spend my life here
But I'm a waste of time

The days float slowly by
In the rain outside my window
All my numbered days
Now they are running out

I am a ghost
Fading into obscurity
And there are millions like me
We are all one and the same in the end
Track Name: Procrastination Hymn
You got me in this prison
You are the warden in my life
You tell me what to do and when
I'll never tell you what I feel
You should prepare for my escape
One day I will get out of this
And when I'm free I will return
To make you pay a thousand times
Track Name: Sisyfos Incorporated
We fuck you over and over again
We use you all as we wish
You're a tool and when you break
We'll thow you away and get a new

Minimum wage, maximum profit
We don't care about your pain
We live on your hard work
But you mean nothing to us

Total infernal management
Your infectation - our solution
Secretly managing pain
Recall me from this hell

You are just figures in our budget
You feed our ever growing need
So we fuck you over and over again
To keep your under our control

Total infernal management
Your infectation - our solution
Secretly managing pain
Recall me from this hell

Constantly aching shoulders
Stressed and depressed
There is no limit
To what they make us do

The monotonized boredom
Brings artificial Altzheimers
Our memory degrades
By the constant pressure

Like slaves without an option
We sell our own flesh
To this cannibal company
That end our lives

They're all over the world
But we don't try to stop it
We just shut up and swallow
Take it in our face
Track Name: The Empty Christ
Your life is a cut up story
You've had a distant life
No one close to you
And you will never know
What would have happened
If things had been different

The cold play within your heart
The sudden touch of your fingers on my skin
The words written on your back
I'll never reach you but I pretend to feel

There are several stories
Mixed up inside of you
You'll have to sort it all out
We won't be there to help
There's no easy way to go
And you are all alone

The way they handle the truth
Fills me with disgust for the ones that pretend they rule
I can't support this idiocraty
They should consider me an enemy of their state

I am the Empty Christ
My conscience full of lies
Pain is my emotion
Why should I ever care

I am the Empty Christ
The ruler of this world
We are millions
Indifferent and dead

Those feelings do not match
Your actions contradict
That behaviour isn't right
Your isolated mind
Has already cracked
The only way is out

My mother always said to me
That my invisibility is only in my own head
Everyone outside can see me
The face I try to hide right behind my mask

Your medications will not help
This sickness isn't cured
Everyday will be the same
And you will soon find out
Nothing will sedate
The pain that you call life

The cold soul of my heart
Something I could never understand or feel
I am free from consciousness
All those tattoed letters will remain unread by me

I am the Empty Christ
My conscience full of lies
Pain is my emotion
Why should I ever care

I am the Empty Christ
The ruler of this world
We are millions
Indifferent and dead

And when the morning comes
The darkness float away
The things I've done remain
And nothing can be changed

And everyday is all the same
I try to forget each night
Why am I trapped in this void
I don't understand

You got something I need
You must give it to me now
You got emotions that I need
You must give it to me now

I must have your sensibility
I need to understand the world
I must have your compassion
I need your love right now

I am the Empty Christ
The lethargic lord of lies
Let the people come to me
and feel my pain

I am the Empty Christ
The lord of indifference
My abscent conscience
Will set the world aflame

I am the Empty Christ
The shepard without sheep
I reap what others sowed
My kingdom falls every day

I am the Empty Christ
I will throw that first rock
There is no salvation
I'll just save myself

I am the Empty Christ
The ruler of this world
There are millions like me
We're indifferent and dead

I am the Empty Christ
My conscience's got zero weight
I pass my pain to others
And I transfer death
