Track Name: Barbie Doll Riot
Lets have a molov or two
And babe the next rounds are on you
And while the city's quiet
Lets start the barbie riots
And show what little dolls can do

Sometimes it really is a chore
Fighting your feminism war
When guys just can't relate that
It's not just size and shape and
They think they've heard it all before

So take a torch and light up Ken
Maybe they'll see things different when
The city is on fire
The price of war gets higher
Won't be so disaffected then

So break the walls down in Berlin
Its just a cause we have to win
The end will be fantastic
The powers in the plastic
Watch the glass ceiling caving in
Track Name: Unintended
Cold memories
In photographs
Of times you lived
And times you laughed
A lover lost to thoughts untrue
Your unintended point of view

A shattered dream
A broken heart
A time to grieve
And fall apart
With bitter words lost to the night
And still no chance to make it right

This is not what you intended
This is not what you intended

What did you say
That broke her heart
That lost your love
Tore it apart
And dragged you deep
In to despair
That stripped you down
And laid you bare

Words gone to waste
Without recourse
And all you're left
Is your remorse
A shattered dream
A broken heart
And time to grieve
And fall apart
Bitter words lost to the night
And still no chance to make it right
Cold memories
In photographs
Of times you lived
And times you laughed

This is not what you intended
This is not what you intended
Track Name: Sister Insomniac
Shes the queen of messed up medicine
A straight up addictive heroine
Violent distaste for the government
God only knows where her money went
No time for the shit on the internet
Nobody's gonna break her spirit
No worries 'bout a brand new president
She see's it all as irrelevant

Sister Insomniac
Sister Insomniac

No bother with the nine to five ties
Admirers left by the wayside
In a haze of whiskey and cheap wine
God knows that shes never gonna be mine
Dressed to kill but has no target
Gonna give you a night you won't forget
New dress new shoes new attitude
Ain't nothing else that she needs to prove

Sister Insomniac is true
Sister Insomnica is true

Hey Sister...
Where you going?
What you doing?
Who you seeing?

Hellcat that still has nine lives
Lives life out in her own time
Her violent words cut like knives
No stress no fuss and she never cries
Intimate but only in private
Has a heart if you can find it
A smile like a hungry tiger
Theres passion deep inside her

Sister Insomniac is true
Sister Insomniac loves you

Sister Insomniac is true
Sister Insomniac loves you
Track Name: State of Ratio
You say that you don't love me
Its not a future we can see
And though inside I'm dying
You'll never see me crying
Its a distorted frequency

I hoped we'd never be apart
But theres a fault deep in your heart
Factors come into play
That caused a love decay
And now the system must restart

The state of ratio
Signal to radio
The state of ratio
Signal to radio
is fading now

Theres nothing left for me to do
Cant get my signal through to you
Can't live your hearts desires
When passions only wires
And theres no hope of breaking through

The state of ratio
Signal to radio
The state of ratio
Signal to radio
is killing me
Track Name: Cybris
Instrumental
Track Name: No Cure for Love
Baby there's no cure for love
You can pray to the stars above
Everything that you've dreamed of
Baby there's no cure for love

And you're there and you'e quietly waiting
Everythng you've been anticipating
Sugar sweet, sweet saccharine
Like nothing else that you've ever seen
You aren't quite sure what it means
Hot fever taking over your dreams

There's no cure for love

Feel the heat, hot burning glow
The only thing that you want to know
Lost in the haze of your own desire
Burning bright in the passion fire
Now you find it hard to breathe
And you know that you just can't leave

There's no cure for love
There's no cure for love
There's no cure for love
There's no cure

Heart beat, beat faster now
Infected but you don't know how
Stars spin across the sky at night
Hold on baby hold on tight
Sweet addiction and its not enough
Don't you know there's no cure for love

There's no cure for love
There's no cure for love
Track Name: Sleeplab
You don't know where where you are
Don't know if you're awake
There is no god in here
But there's a soul to take
We're gonna steal your dreams
We're gonna steal your soul
Nothing is as it seems
Your mind is melting now

In the sleep lab
(in the sleep lab)

We're gonna warp your mind
We're gonna break your heart
We're gonna take your world
And tear it all apart
This is the nightmare realm
Now we are in your mind
There's no escape from us
There's nowhere you can hide

In the sleep lab
(in the sleep lab)

What we are here to do
Is take all your free will
And spell it out to you
The things you cannot feel
Your world is changing now
To our reality
Your mind is ours to keep
And we won't set you free

And you may feel awake
But this is all a dream
We're deconstructing you....
(in the sleeplab)
Track Name: Throb
Dance

Throb

(repeat!!)
Track Name: Shadow People
When sunlight dies and darkness falls
And twilight creeps across the walls
Just for a moment time will pause
That's when the shadow people call

They're in the corner of your eye
They're just a soul that's passing by
Silent observers in the night
Shying away from all that's light

And you may think they are a dream
But if you listen carefully
You'll hear the whispers and the screams
You'll hear the pleas to set them free
Track Name: Breakdown
Kill the lights
Kill my thoughts
Kill the memories

Kill the noise
Make it stop
I don't wanna feel

Breaking down
Leave me alone
Leave me lying here

Take my mind
Take my soul
Take my everything

Take it all
Make it stop
I don't wanna know

Breaking down
Leave me alone
Just leave me lying here

I hear the words but they're just noise
And I don't want to be this way
I can't explain the way I feel
There's nothing left that I can say
Can barely breath
Cannot relate
Please take this pain away

Feel the heat
Feel the rush
Feel the energy

Feel the pain
Make it stop
I don't wanna heal

Breaking down
Leave me alone
Leave me lying here

Leave me lying here
Just leave me lying here
Track Name: Man on the Edge
This is a story of a man on the edge
He loves his country and hes taken the pledge
Lives in a bunker on the far side of town
So he's prepared for when the shit goes down

Lives his life like he's out on the run
Concealed carry for his favourite gun
Target practice but its only for fun
Got Hollow points for when the zombies come

Chemtrails flying over his head
Doesn't believe what the government says
Thinks 9/11 was a flase flag plan
Thinks global warming is a Chinese scam

And somewhere up above
The Universe is calling out to him
But no-ones told the Aliens
To come and free us from our sin
But if the mothership should make a call
He'll make a stand and fight
Illegal aliens might come and take
His job away tonight

A terrorist could come and kill him tonight
Or North Korea with a nuke first strike
The men in black might come and take him away
Or Black Eyed kids might want to come in and play

This is a story of a man on the edge
He loves his country and hes taken the pledge
Lives in a bunker on the far side of town
So he's prepared for when the shit goes down
Track Name: Of Broken Dreams
A lifetime
That all came to this moment
This memory
Is Hidden deep inside my mind
A whisper
A Whisper

Of Broken dreams and Heartbreak
Broken Dreams and Hearbreak

Nothing
Except a wall of silence
Theres nothing
Except a knife that cut so deep
A Moment
A Moment

Of Broken dreams and Heartbreak
Broken Dreams and Heartbreak

Broken Dreams
Broken Dreams
Broken Dreams
Broken Dreams

I wake up
I see where blood has fallen
I wake up
I see the body on the floor
In passion
In passion

Of Broken dreams and Heartbreak
Broken Dreams and Heartbreak

Of Broken dreams and Heartbreak
Broken Dreams and Heartbreak
