Still stuck on the other side, I’m lying through my teeth
When everyone all around me, reflections of my former self
All full of fear and self loathing, there lips move but there is no sound

Push on through to the real you, the pieces fallen through the cracks
The shattered fragments, lies that surround you, death by a thousand cuts

Fires always wild, destiny’s child
The stumps of a once great forest, ghosts of a greater past
Reaching up to the sky, slightly beyond my grasp
I’m Growing into this brand new skin
How long the memories last, hanging by the past
How short lived the memories for the pain
It’s time to awaken, break the glass, escape the rear view and begin anew

I never drink the water, the glass half empty
Their dark hearts full of fear, locked up with no imagination

These hallucinogenic rantings, fucking with the peace and quiet
There’s no escaping from reality
If I’ve said it once, it’s a 1000 times
All these outspoken pantomimes
They gesture with such meaning, their silence is the crime. If only I could just read minds
My life is a funhouse, I’m surrounded on all sides
The wicked laughter, I’m screaming to myself
Were those conversations real, did I push my mind too hard
fractals of broken thought, tripping up my sense of time

Evolutions not a choice, intelligence is not designed
You’ve got to work to free your mind, and the spirit will follow

7/4 (lyrics) http://www.weaponsoforion.com/index.php/2017/12/12/7-4-lyrics/ Tue, 12 Dec 2017 17:07:41 +0000 http://www.weaponsoforion.com/?p=134 Drop to your knees, pray for your sins
So you want forgiveness, but you can’t find it within
Follow the words, now relinquish free thought
Question nothing, tapping out on your free will

Do you feel safe in your child’s mind
They rode across the countryside, flying their banners of holy lies
You will believe all reason aside

Burn the witches, see how they float
Innocent they will sink, listen to their demon screams
Armed to the hilt, fearing only their god
Blasphemy damned, massacring righteously

You will believe…

The 1000’s of years of this holy war, your hearts and minds are the sacred ground
The battleground is your intellect, follow the rules they’re all written in STONE

AGED MENTALITY

Drop to your knees, open up wide
So you want forgiveness, while you get fucked from behind
Say the dumb words, sip the holy backwash
Lie through your teeth, my son you are forgiven
Burn the witches, see how they float
Innocent they will sink, listen to their demon screams
Armed to the hilt, fearing only their god
Blasphemy damned, massacring righteously

Do you feel safe in your child’s mind

The 1000’s of years of this holy war, your hearts and minds are the sacred ground
The battleground is your intellect, follow the rules they’re all written in STONE

Enlightenment can’t be beaten into you
Your broken will follows willingly

Watch as the scientists run and hide, tied to the stake they must burn to forsake
for their circular worldly lies
The world it is flat, hearts and minds full of fat

Blown Away (lyrics) http://www.weaponsoforion.com/index.php/2017/12/12/blown-away-lyrics/ Tue, 12 Dec 2017 17:05:23 +0000 http://www.weaponsoforion.com/?p=131 The sound it made, never heard a thing like that in all my days
Seized the handle, cleared the mantle
All the Memories – frozen there in time,
I point this barrel at the centre of my mind
The silence there, so pure and so sublime

I fill these voids with the violence of this crime
These blood stained hands, the mangled bits that fall away
The screams that echoed my dismay, I had to have it all my way

Hot blinding flash, all the dreams that have been dashed – they never mattered anyway
I dulled all my senses, and lulled all defences
All the memories – preserved there in the brine
I point this needle at the centre of my vein
The silence there, so devoid of any pain

I kill the noise with the opioids reprieve
this silenced mind, the absence of misery
The sirens scream into my haze, I had to leave it all this way

There’s nothing left to say, I’ve blown it all away
Don’t be sad today, I had it all my way
The memories will stay, in pieces where they lay
The memories will stay, in pieces…where I left them on the floor

All of these things that I never wanted to say, they’ve manifested in this tragedy here today
All the veiled attempts on my life all as if to say, I’ll fuckin’ blow it all away

The Flood (lyrics) http://www.weaponsoforion.com/index.php/2017/12/11/the-flood-lyrics/ Mon, 11 Dec 2017 23:42:21 +0000 http://www.weaponsoforion.com/?p=129 Our torrid obsessions, the horrid confessions
We turn our torches into weapons, scorched the earth and lost our way in the dark

This beautiful wasteland where we find our minds diluted in these times
This sinners delight too hard to turn away your indulgence you may
Partake in insidious excess, don’t save a taste for any of the rest
We’ve run aground on the rocks of time, we’ve crossed the proverbial line

Divided we conquer, conspiracies conjured in the dark
United we wander, disillusioned in the dreams we all once shared
The ruins they haunt us, another society has burned
The twilight dimming in your eyes, chasing shadows from the light

This beautiful wasteland, we’re just wasting time – praying to the idle divine
Their twisted Morality obfuscates the truth, their lies are bullet proof

It’s too obscene, yet I can’t stop staring at the wreck
My stomach turns, the acrid smell as the bodies burn
We’ve pushed on too far to turn back now, there’s no telling if we’ll ever fucking learn
Here comes that rising tide, to wash you off the rocks and carry you away into oblivion

This beautiful wasteland, we’re just wasting time – praying to the idle divine
Their twisted Morality obfuscates the truth their lies are 40 proof
A return to intelligent discourse
lead the horse to water, but you can’t make him drink
You can show the idiots knowledge, but you can’t make them fucking think

This beautiful wasteland where we find our minds diluted in these times
This sinners delight too hard to turn away your indulgence you may
Partake in insidious excess
