Track Name: NERO
People say that it's the best that it is ever gonna get to be for me
And all that's left to do is hunker down and witness everything unraveling
To keep ourselves warm we'll burn the paper tigers and our paper money
Come out the rabbit hole and turn the pages back to when we had to kill to eat

And now it's mine (all mine)
That famine mentality
Eats me alive
I can't deny
Like Nero I'm fiddling
Into the fire

People say that we're the next but not the best, and hope for singularity
And all we've got to do is carry on so they can earn their immortality
Catastrophe the carrot just beyond the reach of our all of our technology
Our teeth will go unused a feeding tube provides a nourishment that's pure and clean

Through dead American eyes
A screen depicting the hurt
My dead American eyes
A screen depicting the earth, from afar

I would say that I am guilty of remaining innocent too old naive
I get what I deserve with fukashima spilling into everything I eat
But all my sacrifices are directed towards intangible geometries
This microcosm I inhabit has become a structure that is hard to leave

There was a time (a time)
That famine mentality
Helped me survive
I can't deny (the truth)
Like Nero I'm fiddling
Into the fire
Track Name: Tinnitus
I greet the void below me
With a smile and a wave
Then take a step into the darkness

I wouldn't say I'm lonely
There'd be no one to hear me
As I am witness to the omen

Twas, they who built the sun, for all of us
They who made the earth so generous
Cast us on to the current in our sleep

A picture perfect waterfall
You tumble down
And then when you complete the fall you drown

I hear the ringing lowly
And it keeps me awake
My fondest memory is silence

And I will tumble only
Till my work is completed
And then the depths will take my carcass

Deaf and voiceless
These depths can have my carcass
Now it's useless
Since I have served my purpose
Track Name: Waterbear
Wake up thirsty
In strange surroundings
Got my old familiar body
So I'm not scared

We hibernate
Without a care
We tardigrade we have no fear

He's a crypto biotic life form
Copasetic in the moment, no thought of before
So we sent him, into orbit, and the sea floor
We're the change that he can only wait here for

All your envy
Cannot outlive me
So you can bring an army
And I won't care

We hibernate
Without a care
So unafraid that waterbear

He's a crypto biotic life form
Apathetic microscopic, the future he ignores
So we sent him, into orbit, and the sea floor
We're the change that he can only wait here for

I invoke
My stasis
You'll grow old
And I'll endure
