about

The time has finally come!

After a ridiculous amount of obstacles, delays and setbacks, we finally decided to just say "screw it" and throw the (almost) entire album online for everyone to hear. These songs were written between 2008-2009 and we are ecstatic and relieved to finally be able to share them with you. Unfortunately, the physical release is still a few months away. As you may know, samples and sound clips have become increasingly more integrated into our music over the course of our history and this latest album is no exception. Our pressing plant has told us they will not be able to press the record without proper clearance for these samples. The end result is that the vinyl and accompanying CD will be a different listening experience. They will have one extra track and the samples will be different. It gives us a chance to change the overall tone of the album and we think it will be a fun listen. But below you can listen to the album with the samples with which we initially intended it to be released. Thank you for your unending patience and dedication.

Track Name: Walking Graves
eight weeks, trapped in the mountain
no food, no one around us
cannot bear another week this
appetite is craving weakness
satisfaction, we dare not speak up
but we seak it

never thought we would taste so good
oh god, just a little taste, oh god, til we leave this place

it's been eight weeks since we got home
we crave that flesh that no one knows
taste so good, i must propose
in factories, we'll start to grow
human flesh, mass produced
human flesh, to consume
(you're gonna taste so good)
you'll want to EAT YOURSELF, EAT YOURSELF
slit the throat, it tastes so good
bleed to death, it tastes so good
raised for murder
it tastes so good

together we share this guilt
suppress the thought of life we've killed
congradulations we knew that you could
we all murder because it tastes good
the burden of taste
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

what have you turned me in to?
Track Name: Bodies
we want our bodies to be our own
no sale, no rent, no loan
we want our bodies off the shelf
no corporate intrest, just ourselves
a blind army defending life's sanctity
to self righteous, unable to see
forcing birth is punishment
against the life you pretend to respect

we want our bodies, we want our bodies, we want our bodies to be our own
not anybody's, not anybody's, not anybody's to control

we emotion without chains
no laws, no rules, no restraint
we want our love life to be free
on demand without appology

we want our bodies, we want our bodies, we want our bodies to be our own
not anybody's, not anybody's, not anybody's to control

on demand without appology
no subjected to the whim of the majority
on demand without appology
hatred should never be public policy
Track Name: You Can't Go Back (vinyl only)
Bonus track
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
Track Name: Ants
venom! i'm paralyzed
i've never felt so good in my whole life
feel the flesh, melt from the bone
let the colony take me away

rip my limbs
tear my flesh
taste my eyes
gorge yourself
gorge yourself
choke

i'll lay here as you take what you want from me

this is everything that i wanted
take everything that you need
assimilation, acceptance
take what you want from me

all of us are lining up, to be stabbed in the back

if we can't have eyes, if we can't have eyes

set me aside, tear me apart
i'll lay here to die

we survive because they want us alive
wide awake as they tear our our insides
we survive because they won't let us die

we survive because they want us alive
wide awake as they tear our our insides
we survive because they won't let us die
let the colony take me away
