Track Name: National Razor
Privileged child
you've wandered astray
Weak and wild
willful parasitic
Cancer in our body
We answer to this calling

We know what we need
Combat this entropy
A national razor
For this elective surgery

The smallest yes
The biggest no
Answers our distress
With this symbol of our
Visceral indignation
Be equal to your station

We'll be selective
Track Name: Ruined Tower
Lying here we make love
Yours to break of all fear
Man of straw free from what

Thought might hold
Pave a road

Sacrament of volunteers
Push to frontiers so we
Mix with those we've condemned

To end like this
In ignorance
As anarchists

Master of a ruined tower
An impotence proverbial
Take it right up to the wire
Tip a cup that's never full
Track Name: German Autumn
Success, your old friend
She'll pay you a visit again
But your less than you've been
And fortune's favor is running thin
Can you hold it down?
When we're holding you down?

Come my little angel
Butter you and hang you
From the nearest lamppost
Burn in sun and strangle

Duress and coercion
The simplest tools known to men
Brought to bear once again
This time in the service of them
Can you hold it down?
When they're holding you down?
Track Name: Proletkult
All they've got is law
All they are is criminal
Throw them to the next life
Old skin

Sow the wind
Reap the whirlwind

Charging into our guns
Only freedom they know
Throw them to the next life
Old skin

Can't get out from beneath the weighted deeds of those we uphold
Are heroes what we need to stop the seas from breaching this hull?
What of our policy, a policy upon the sea?
Track Name: Silver Skin
Somehow you fail to see the problem
Glory glory unto thee
Recite your prayers upon the pulpit
You find your prey upon their knees

Godspeed proceed your aspiration
From vulgar life may you be freed
Ushered beyond this aberration
Augury rise, disguise the creed

Hell gaze
Sworn praise
Hell gaze
Scorn praise
