1. CREATE RESTRAINT

Close your mind to controversy
Don't express opinion just agreement
Good healthy views and morals
Join the system patronise don't antagonise
To place truth on the page
Is the food i chose the digest
To share my thoughts and cares
And inquire into what's best

Blinded by your cause
And numb to the effect
Your true destiny is beckoning
Beckoning all of you

The basis of human nature
To protect what is close precious
Intentions to defend and purify
Achieve and preserve innocence
To enforce your standards and beliefs
Onto an entire generation
Surely this makes you no better
Than aryan dictators past

Blinded by your cause
And numb to the effect
Your true destiny is beckoning
Beckoning all of you

Individuals must choose their own
Controlled recreation holds no appeal
Preached regulations breed negativity
Abundant negativity produces animosity
Dare to manipulate the constitution
In my mind it sets a dangerous presidence
Restrain the pen, freedom pollution
In a hope to quell natural rebellion

Your aim is to culture future generations
Perfection without any race exception
Antiseptic for the mind and soul
Consists of tampering human ethics
To be able to collect all the opinions
The weapon of reason, learn to be friend
To blinker en masse a dangerous notion
For he who is blind cannot defend

Blinded by your cause
And numb to the effect
Your true destiny is beckoning
Beckoning all of you




2. JOKE CHAIN

Hidden below, a shudder of curiosity
Testing a toy of power unequalled
An exercise of megalomania
Feel the glory, technology in motion

A simple can, pricks our ozone protection
An explosion invites infection
Out of sight, out of our minds
Won't you wonder when the sun doesn't shine

We already know the potential shown
Why do you enleash this toy
Hide your fun beneath the sand
Effects sweep, suffocate land

A simple can, pricks our ozone protection
An explosion invites infection
Out of sight, out of our minds
Won't you wonder when the sun doesn't shine

Responsibility is not the word
That comes to my conscience
Negligible is what i'd call
Your so called testing experiments

Lack of respect is what i understand
The least about you
For this earth
Which was not given to us
For misuse of any kind

All of that green, evaporated waste
My mind conjures a better case
Morbid fascination of a boy
The ultimate joke, to test a toy

A simple can, pricks our ozone protection
An explosion invites infection
Out of sight, out of our minds
Won't you wonder




3. THOUGHTFUL SLEEP

The inquest

Excerpts from the diary of richard mcclenan (1971-1989)

April 6 (thursday)

Mother,
Do you think of me as your son
Or am i just a complication
I need you now, i need you now
A woman of the eighties
You never have time for anyone
I know your shadow, not your face
It breaks the light in my lonely room
As i lie awake in thoughtful sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep

Father,
Remember me i am your son
Or am i just a distraction
I need you now, i need you now
You live in a material world
People aren't people, they're what they own
With your keyboard fingers and green screen brain
Car phones, hotels, suitcases and planes
Please squeeze me in, i do exist
When time is money what price is love

April 9 (sunday)

Even when i was young you didn't notice me
I was raised on helpers, tv and pity
When i cried for help you threw me money
All i wanted was a pound of your time
I feel
Pity for you and your mentality
Hate for you and what you've done to me
Resentment for all your selfishness
Content, content only within my emptiness

Here we see richard's true mixture of emotions
Bitterness, rejection, contempt even hate
All of which began to plague him more and more in the following days

April 14 (friday)

I would try to explain
But you would never listen
I would try to break through
That's the time you would shut me out
I'd just bottle up all my emotions
These feelings bite like a knot inside
This pain i carry in solitude
Chained to me in loneliness
Depression has me, he is my king
He shows the path that i must take
A perversion of justive of the saddest kind
To enter my dreams and i shall not wake

April 15 (saturday)

As i sit by fading light
And write to you this final note
To exercise my divine right
A lump begins to swell my throat
You cannot see this tear-stained face
You cannot hear these tormented cries
If you don't understand my actions
Then you must read between the lines
And now i throw back in your face
The only gift for which you didn't pay
The gift of breath, of life, of being
Something i no longer see a purpose in

As i embrace eternal sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep




4. YOU ARE YOUR ENEMY

Life is irreversible you only get one shot
Leaving behind you a trail of anxiety
You want to do right, you want to understand
But everything you destroy is what you need
Anger and hatred rising
Trying to find normality you bury all the pain
Each day's dawn brings confusion
Yearning for calm you slip into turmoil

Life is hell

All you need is answers to questions that you deny

Hell is life

The things you spit on are the things you need the most

Your mind is tormenting your stamina and nerves
Eating away at the remains of sanity
Sometimes you curse the day you caught breath
And wonder how much longer you can last
Memories lock you in the cells of despair
Every bone in your body is aching
When violence is the only way of waking to reality
You see that you are your own enemy

Hell if life

Your anger is a madman about to be united

Life is hell

The person you despise is living behind your eyes




5. PHANTASM

Part 1 running scared

Watching from the hillside
Unpermitted mourning
With the rest of my family
Funeral is over
My suspicions are raised by the tall man's abilities
I decide to hide, searching for answers
Answers to questions yet complete within my mind
Flushed from hiding by my own curiosty
Mechanical white corpuscle eradicate the enemy
What the hell is going on, what is going on

What is he here for?
What is he hiding?
Will he kill me?

Twisting my brother's mind
To the impending danger
Which threatens us all
He doesn't believe me
But curiosity and fact
Combine to persuade him
It becomes clear that what we're fighting
Is something that much stronger than our being
So we decide to set a trap to ensnare the evil
What the hell is going on, what is going on

Where did he come from?
Why were we chosen?
What life awaits us?

Part 2 the tall man

I witness an intruder
And return to my peaceful sanctuary
Cans of shrunken life
Await their final journey
Through a porthole in space
First step to enslavement shackles
And the last of freedom
I slavetrade death

My powers are many and unknown
For use in defence and attack
I feel no pity, shame or reason
I live to kill and kill to live

I am here to cage your soul
And make you learn to obey
You will adopt a new existence
From which you will never return

My domain is peaceful
Then i find the boy hiding
I must eliminate him
His eyes see too much
He has light of foot
And i lose sight of him for now
My time shall come
My chance i will take

I know this task is not beyond me
But this minor threat it doth frustrate me
A matter of time and patience
To remove this pathetic object

I am here to cage your soul
And make you learn to obey
You will adopt a new existence
From which you will never return

I hunt my prey
I find my place
Running scared
He's in the woods
Then the ground
It falls away
All is black
I'm left for dead

Bodily wound's a minor setback
Encased within this earthly shell
I still plan a confrontation
Defeat never crosses my mind

I am here to cage your soul
And make you learn to obey
You will adopt a new existence
From which you will never return

I am here
For the dead
I will kill
For my cause
I am not
Of this earth
Humans are
Easy prey
Eternal life
Of slavery




6. MY OPEN MIND

No matter how i live my life
No matter which game i try to play
Their dark shadows smother my soul
Their eyes burning holes in my back

This is right, that is wrong, follow the rules
You won't fight, not for long, they'll make you fall
I have no answers, only questions for these people
I don't need guidance
I just want to keep my open mind

They patronise and vomit their rules
Leaving me with a storm in my brain
I have to solve this puzzle myself
With their guns softly tickling my neck
Can't they respect my decision
To interpret things my own way
And get out of my life forever
Just get out of my life

This is right, that is wrong, follow the rules
You won't fight, not for long, they'll make you fall
I have no answers, only questions for these people
I don't need guidance
I just want to keep my open mind

Just because i play by different rules
Doesn't mean my way is wrong
Now you know the problem
You know why i wrote this song




7. CODES OF CONFORMITY

It makes me laugh, it makes me sad
Every key that doesn't fit you say that it's bad
Judge books my their covers not the stories inside
Codes of conformity drive me out of my mind

We're here, you're there
Don't breathe fast, you'll waste air
You weren't meant to be this way
You're not human, you're pure decay

Different is offensive so you say
Just treat me as any other
I won't apologise for my way
The same life story in a different cover

We're here, you're there
Don't breathe fast, you'll waste air
You weren't meant to be this way
You're not human, you're pure decay

Narrow minds breed narrow thoughts
One look at me won't reveal all
What you see in me you hate and despise
I return your stare with non-conformist eyes

We're here, you're there
Don't breathe fast, you'll waste air
You weren't meant to be this way
You're not human
