D.O.D. 09:35
This is the death of discourse This is the degradation of reason There will be no appeasing him This is the death of discourse We are a congregation of heathens Accused of a cardinal sin If you wanna go at me you better know what you're gonna say I don't really think you do but you're gonna say it anyway This is the death of discourse This is the degradation of reason I bleed what my ancestors bleed This is the death of discourse I feel like I've been accused of treason But I know how my history reads If you wanna go at me you better know what you're gonna say I don't really think you do but you're gonna say it anyway D.O.D. He don't wanna talk He don't wanna listen

There is a jungle and it's over the water under the canopy lie mothers and daughters and fathers and sons, fleeing the slaughter There is a jungle and it's over the water There is a graveyard and it's under the water down on the seabed lie mothers and daughters in permanent sleep, like others before them There is a graveyard and it's under the water There is a jungle and it's over the water where desperate souls fleeing the mortars are trapped on our shores and we're closing the border There is a jungle and it's over the water There is a jungle and it's over the water under the canopy lie mothers and daughters and fathers and sons, fleeing the slaughter There is a jungle...

The Remedy 06:13
You are the firmament I am impermanent I'll write a eulogy but you are the remedy If only they knew the paths that passed behind you another waiting room, another world to pass through another double door, another form in your hands another box to sign to say you'll understand and I just sit there, upon a plasticky chair behind a windowpane - gives the illusion of air and as the hours pass, I do the best that I can I offer platitudes whilst holding out my hand You are the firmament I am impermanent I'll write a eulogy but you are the remedy When I'm inconsolable you help to solve it all I'll write a eulogy but you are the remedy There is a memory that I could never replace of the resilience, as it was, etched on your face It brings me down some days. You tolerate the absurdity with which I justify my every word.

Stay away from me, I won't ask again I'm to young to care, too tired to pretend 'cause each time you touch me, another piece crumbles away Stay away from me, I know just what you are I've seen it all before. I won't play the part There's an anger runs through my veins. Often times before, I haven't made a sound but touch me there again and I'll put you on the ground There's an anger runs through my veins 'cause each time you touch me another piece another piece crumbles away. Each time you touch me, another piece crumbles.

Unite (Live) 05:34
We all feel a seed is sown We all feel an anger grow Where did all the money go? Living uniform routine just another cog in the machine paying off your childhood dreams Living in a town you know A shadow of itself from long ago where did all the money go? Looking for a blame to pass Schooled by a lock-stock-trading class never to be taken to task. Desire to divide and shame I want to pour petrol on the flames A need to shout 'never in my name' We are generation rent we will not endorse this government we are the 48%! Brothers and sisters unite in love.
