Track Name: Song of the Apocalypse
Earth was heating
Tried geoengineering
Now it's too cold out
So it didn't work

Sent a rocket ship to Mars
Hoped to colonize stars
But the engines failed
So it didn't work

Genetic manipulation
Created a dire situation
All the mutants ate the scientists
So it didn't work

Some joined cults of
Alien Gods
But they sent no space pods
So it didn't work

And now we've run out of options...

All is lost the Earth cannot be saved
Some of us are hiding in caves
Others are forced to work as slaves
And the last ones alive will dig their own graves

Nothing anymore
On the ocean floor
Spread iron to fix it
But it didn't work

Cryogenic chambers
Wait for resurrection later
But everything melted
So it didn't work

Breed people for food
Calorie count every brood
But disease killed them all
So it didn't work

Nuclear holocaust
Finally finishes us off
Now there's nothing left to do cause
Nothing Worked

And now we've run out of options...

All is lost the Earth will not be saved
Some died alone in their caves
Others were worked to death as slaves
And the last ones alive dug their own graves
Track Name: Metabolic Drift
Spring is upon us said Rosa’s diary
But they threw her in the Rhine declared uncertain victory
A century now of supposed disloyalties
Royalties of this song will go to some kind of disease
Theoretical Bukkake fest jest tragedy
Prompt ill-gotten gains from exorbitant entrance fees
Metabolic bile rile colic envy
The last paroxysm of the Father’s futility

What’s humanity (at all)?

Another night done right in the shooting gallery
Light chronic enmity toward revolutionary fatigue
Eco-catastrophism the ideology of the bourgeoisie
Instead deny alterity, embrace bestiality

The order of things yes we put them in an order
Then we come to them again, we always come to them again

The order of things
The things have an order that we put them in
Young Marx or Old,
Exegesis grows cold, never favors the bold
And what’s humanity at all?
It’s nothing at all
Your separation sustains the thing that you most fear
And like a face drawn in the sand, you’ll soon disappear
Oh what’s humanity at all?
It’s nothing at all.
Track Name: Poigndarez Mes Yeux
Cigarettes and Speed
I watch you from afar
Wine and Whiskey
You watch me from afar
Cocaine and Klonopin
We finally lock eyes
And I cannot speak I can only touch
Your eyes

Come to me here
Come stab out my eyes.
Track Name: Neon Malthusian (Samson's Song)
I’m a Neon-Malthusian
My passion is oozing
I’m on the streets cruising
Looking for some bruising
Track Name: 3 Miles Below the Earth
3 miles below the earth

Oh my darling
Come live
In the dark of the cave
There will be
There will be no light
And we’ll feed off each other
And all the people on the surface in the sun
They're getting fried
We won’t hear their screams
Hear those children scream

Not in the dark
Not 3 Miles below the earth

And if God is a lobster
She’s coming to get you and me
We better flee
3 Miles below the Earth

3 Miles below the earth
Can’t live up here anymore
Track Name: Some Far Pasture of the Milky Way (Aldo's Song)
Capital is extinction personified
There’s no place we have left to hide
You can cry and cry about
Our inevitable demise
But it’s coming anyway
Yeah it’s coming today

“In the fullness of geological time
Last crane trumpets its farewell and
Spirals toward the sky,
And a silence never to be broken
Unless in some far pasture of the Milky Way.”
Track Name: Yet Again
In 1968 cracked your skull outside the gate
In 1992 said the third way will save you
And now in 2016 all we've left to do is scream
After we failed to burn, here's what we finally learned:

A system can't be rigged if rigging is the system
And you can't lose your way if you never found a way
I could've died today, but I've yet to live
Oh don't fool yourself, it's going to happen again
Yet Again, Yet Again, Yet again.

We all eat ourselves.
We all eat ourselves everyday.

A system can't be rigged if rigging is the system
And you can't lose your way if you never found a way
I could've died today, but I've yet to live
Oh don't fool yourself, it's going to happen again
Yet Again, Yet Again, Yet again.
Track Name: November 8th, 2016
You are lost in a dark age
And the costs bring a stark rage
The pigs rule in this cage
Salvation remains vague
Vulgar starlets hawk
For corporate harlots and
I'm thinking that I just might
Throw a bomb at the TV screen
And go out on the streets tonight.

When you tell me there's nothing left to fight for
Well that's when I say it's time to start the war
And when you tell me after the crash it's the end
Well after the crash is a new beginning.

All hope dies in derision
All faith lies in exorcism
Panoptical precision
Fatalism is our prison
Real subsumption a
Cage of consumption
And I'm thinking that I just might
Throw a bomb at the TV screen
And go out on the streets tonight

There will be no escape
No escape
There will be no escape for them
Track Name: Terror
All life’s history
Is a constant catastrophe
I look to an endless end
Negates the present
And we know not what will be
But it matters not me
As long
As there is you
As long
As there is you.
