New single featuring new members Andrew Mercer & Rheese Peters

lyrics

We can't seem to get enough false praise
Open a window to the fabricated world; see the diamonds in the rough
Let your feelings show behind a veil to protect your souls
Mark your place with a like but no face
Secrecy is a cruel and dark maid
Lose yourself in a world without pain
Live in ignorance as you are swallowed by the void

Shepherds no longer need to show themselves to their herds
Methods of self programming spread their word
Sluggish excuses for people believe the shit on television and the internet
Raising young to perpetuate every sinister cycle our keepers created
Learned helplessness plagues me as my public complaints fall upon deaf ears

I constantly monitor my cyber self
In need of help but refusing to make an effort
I don't think I care anymore
I don't think I need it
I don't think I care anymore
I don't think I need it

So is it fear or desire that fuels my ambivalence?
I think for myself, I think of myself and no one else
I am the architect of my own design
The only one that stimulates my mind
I am unwanted offspring
A real fucking piece of shit
I feed off my hatred and I revel in it

Try to degrade your life, attempt to silence my cries
I am convinced I hate the world and so we need to die
End all our lives, yet I'm completely afraid to lose mine

I am Human, one in a million
These days that's nothing but a bullshit lie
Feeling lonely in a crowd of my own kind
Never knowing I'm not the only one who's falsified
Living deception inside the internet
We like to say things to see what reaction we will get
And as such everything I've let out to you isn't true
But what makes me laugh is that this the real you
