Track Name: VINES!
Vines are coming to get you!

grey cracks, green leaks and then sneaks through
a couple drip drip drops will do
you've created this big bloody mess
now it's ripped and it's pissed and it's coming for you
and all your self assured, grey monument absurd
unquestionable morality confirmed
but soon that crack becomes a means of things undone
green sprouts thorns, legs, eyes, horns, the time has come
slither and grow and strangle all you know
of satisfaction wealth, comfort progress and home
as that green flows into your town
there is nothing that can hold it down

b b b breaking out, up from under the ground
you thought you could control, nature won't settle down
c can't contain it now, now i just won't allow
for all your arrogance, that karm's coming round

churches, factories, hospitals, smoke stacks
all crushed, a take over by weeds
and there ain't no coming back
you thought you wanted it to grow
you thought you had it for your own
but after all is said and done
look what you've got to show
burn the lab smash the cage
trash the club trash the stage
through the smoke and the rage
look at the fucking price we've paid

that karma's coming round

b b b breaking out, up from under the ground
you thought you could control, nature won't settle down
c can't contain it now, now i just won't allow
for all your arrogance, that karm's coming round
that karma's coming round
where is your science now?
that karma's coming round
progress has let you down

vines have got you!
Track Name: Thalidomide
SHOW ME! science, science, not insanity
this research is bullshit, no gain
test over and over, outcome the same
SHOW ME! a life worth more than property
cling to the past, let go
inefficacy is starting to show

life is just ours to take
profit is ours to make
take orders and get paid
we'll make it through the day
i just don't want to know

how many times must we kill
with tax payers footing the bill
what you call progression
is blatant opression

test subjects unwillingly
life is abundant and cheap
saving less than it kills
testing on animals is big industry

is the driving force behind all medical progress in the country

SHOW ME! liars liars, no, no honesty
orders are orders, obtain
progress and profit without any restraint
SHOW ME! follow the leader, paycheck retained
you're fooling yourself, wake up
because torture is torture no matter the name

SHOW ME! fire fire, with a puropse
cut off the locks, destroy
tear down the fence, open the cages
SHOW ME! effective action, real conviction
we need a movement, right now
because asking politely won't get them out


life is just ours to take
profit is ours to make
take orders and get paid
we'll make it through the day
i just don't want to know

how many times must we kill
with tax payers footing the bill
what you call progression
is blatant opression

test subjects unwillingly
life is abundant and cheap
saving less than it kills
testing on animals is big industry

is the driving force behind all medical progress in the country
Track Name: The Animal Factory
choking out humanity
arrested for minor offenses, thrown in cages naked and defenseless
replace hope with insanity
it doesn't matter who is to blame, behind these doors we become the same

what have you turned me in to?

in here, it doesn't take very long
you can't protect yourself, against infection against the greed
no where to run, kill or be killed, modern day slavery
they want us confused and scared SHUT UP!

prison does not (no) and it never will
protect our interest
burn them all down
follow the profit, see where it goes

and the pigs eat first

what have you turned me in to?
Track Name: Irreversible
aren't you sick of the way we've sold ourselves out
and the way we gave up without a fight, WITHOUT A THOUGHT
we abondoned each other
we've lost one another

brothers and sisters
what are we waiting for
it's our fucking right to demand more
of ourselves, and of each other
all of us, part of another
celebrate the decay
keep the violence at bay
pack up the world's problems
throw them away
we see the path
we know what's good and true
we see the path
we're gonna make it through

we are so much stronger than this world thinks we can be
we have so much life left inside our hearts
we need to reclaim, RECLAIM
we won't give up, we won't let go, we will not condone
violence, in our name we won't condone this hate

violence can not be undone
