Cage Bound 06:30
Human sight has been missing Bouncing off those concrete walls They are gone now, the last cash cows And they cannot make a sound New blood’s here, dreary eyed Their turn comes, the cage bound Beasts in men’s clothing Preying on the weak That’s all they've known There’s no judgment, no one’s watching All are bastards of no lord They are fragments , only infants And they cannot live for long New blood’s here, dreary eyed Their turn comes, the cage bound Beasts in men’s clothing Preying on the weak That’s all they've known Broken, replaceable vessels Of fake necessity Known, collateral damage The taste of conformity

The cold white floor Shines red bleakness There’s no way back There’s no way out Gone is the sun Gone are the fields Weight turns to gold And scraps of souls Breeding, feeding, weighing, herding, culling, tagging Fertilizing, agonizing, brutalizing We always walk Where they lead us We always trust The laden path We are the pawns Of this planet But what is won When we are gone Breeding, feeding, weighing, herding, culling, tagging Fertilizing, agonizing, brutalizing

He was born inside a square And everyone came by to stare There’s a reason, they would say And wouldn’t let him go He was tamed and beaten down For mindless tricks and guiltless fun The world outside has been denied What pride was left was cast aside He has lived inside a square And everyone just didn’t care There’s a reason, they would say And wouldn't let him go Then one day the square fell down And he was out but wouldn’t run The things outside are just not clear What’s near is far and what’s far is near Use me as a trick Use me just for fun I’m in every place I’m in every time I’m not yours to keep I’m not mine to have Who does really care If I’m inside a square
5.
Our comfort spills over edges We live a cozy, simple life But something is happening out there Done in our names And it never happens to us Always looking away Embracing the blind spot Truth is a sad fact we try to ignore We left the dirty work to others Whatever happens out there We are just the consumers And it never happens to us Always looking away Embracing the blind spot
6.
An ancient tale of enslavement Evolved into a modern affair Where condiments and blood Are on a plate side by side Cruelty disappears beneath tradition’s dust Empathy bows down to taste glands that lust Bones forever gone from morality’s eyes Those without tears sound their final cry
7.
This is the lab This is the world Science has moved on Without us This must be hell This is the truth Science has moved on Without us
8.
Am I part of the fold Trampling a voiceless crowd Am I part of the mold Keeping on being cowed Habit and tradition Convenience and taste Can I shed my fallacy Finding what’s left to find Can I contest the decree Ignore the mines of the mind Habit and tradition Convenience and taste
9.
You say a god created us A tool to feed believers Who cut our flesh And wear our skin And test our mind We’re no bleeding hearts We bleed for real No clergy prays for us When blood is spilled It’s a crooked world we live in A life that’s not our own With a destiny Set in stone Our shrieks are but a drone We’re no bleeding hearts We bleed for real No clergy prays for us When blood is spilled

Voiceless 05:32
We are gathered Here in this place Gathered but still alone We are the voiceless We are the weak Our words are not here You can only save What you can never let go Don’t let us go If heaven is yours If heaven is yours What’s left for us? These are the feedlots Take off the blindfolds We have been hiding In the shadows of time Hiding and still alone Lost in plain sight Lost in plain sight Open your eyes
