Track Name: Exalted Ignorance
Astonishingly myopic instant gratification
addictive information disease
societal contagions of memory

immutable antipathy
ceaseless regurgitation
seeding deviousness
at the speed of light

masked by the incorporeal
horrendous celebrity demigods
soulless plastic reliquaries of the digital
spew desultory narratives

rhetoric of admonishment, inundated with paranoid ideation
cognitive dissonance imperative,shaping unstable foundations
in subjective interleaved realities

serving to only gestate individual biases to a volatile ardor

escapist society
diminishing the void
virtual condensed existence
culling fearful sycophants
facts become casualty to popular opinion
impel values superficial
vehemently chiding with protagonist delusions
proliferate consent by manipulating a flaw
Exalted Ignorance

rhetoric of admonishment, inundated with paranoid ideation
cognitive dissonance imperative,shaping unstable foundations
upon a vacuous platform of unearned adulations

unwittingly servile mouthpieces to demagogues
obfuscating malfeasance
entrapped by a key stroke, luminescence emitting gaslight shrines
render a false perdition, absconding culpability
for these exalted ignorant(s)

blindfolded devotees incessant natterings of pablums thought so ominous
autonomous realms inhabitants physically excised willingly
tantamount to a self mechanizing extinction

altruistic theory knowledge limitless
should drive concern to action yet its leading depression
for not one can be free without the control of self
Track Name: Veil of Dementia
Faining recognition practice in futility
clung to a single day perpetual
inheriting a new existence, that of a waking dream
as cognizance is foiled by times insidious passing

wrinkles etched by experience becoming smoother
dissolving tangibility gives way to raw emotion

consciousness is shattered into fragments like glass
transparent yet jagged
slicing away found memories
feeble attempts to keep whole

immured in ones own mind
eyes once sharp and eager
now dulled by confusion
we all rush to grow only to falter into ages trappings
a vile disease becomes destroyer of our sanity

clinging to the fraying remnants of this reality
falling victim to an altering chemistry
leaving one to wander
alone in this internal Brueghelian horror-scape

engulfing perception confinement as sickness erases them
degrading synaptic plasticity

witnessing ones own demise peering through tiny pinholes
all we've ever known seeps into the black as its surrounding

cast away in vast ocean of white noise
treading barely head above the din
transfixed by the faces that appear from just below the surface
and dissolve as the current draws back into uncertainty
caught in the rip to eventually drown
while eroding the shores of rationality
that was once only haven

any hopes fade quickly with no solution in sight
all we hold dearly becoming unrecognized

illness prevails against recollection as only fear shines through this veil of dementia

bound to a single day perpetual
engulfing perception confinement as sickness erases them
dissolving tangibility
gives way to raw emotion
derealization
sharp cerebral noise
distortion heightening delusion
magnifying terror involuntary lose of self
cognizance is foiled by times insidious passing
a vile disease become destroying of a faded memory
Track Name: Lashed to Control
Standing fearless before imminent danger
folly the notion of invincibility

held captive by bad decisions and propensity to endulge
a cycle perpetuated of fleeting satisfaction

foolishly trusting images born of virulent machinations
massaging every desire into those of whom serve
waking to feed the starving beast
catering to its every whim
claws relentlessly gripping the gray matter
sinking inward with every grasp tempting the fault lines to break

oblivious slaves serving self manufactured masters
the tether lashed to control dissolves as the distance grows
a devolved sentient apparition emerges
conditioned apathetic waste
dictating all necessity manipulate decencies
forcefully obtaining motivation from all willing donors to favor sickening false needs

how easily values wane when pitted against an analgesic drenched id
numbing any need for mortal confines
meticulously shackled to an agonizing submission

oblivious slaves serving self manufactured masters
the tether lashed to control dissolves as the distance grows
a devolved sentient apparition emerges
ceaseless mindless endeavours
conditioned apathetic waste
dictating all necessity manipulate decencies
forcefully obtaining motivation from all willing donors

plummet ever deeper into the abyss obscene ensnared
for any semblance of real life thats worth continuing to live
