Track Name: Neutral
Keened by epiphanies that purge our cognitive dissonance

Neutral

Leaned by inner voices that judge us until they glance

Neutral

Curt embers limn faces behind costumes
Track Name: Egocentric Predicament
Sceptic determination to debunk the scams
Barren affirmations agitate the gams
These attempts to answer sophist questions
These fallacious a priori estimations

The burden of proof lies on the believers
Red herrings argued by deceivers

Illogic assertions free of evidence
Can be rejected with no hindrance


Rebuke the guillible philistine
The transcendent and the asinine

Will those simpletons realize?

Solipsist phanerons deduce terse instructions
Realist phanerons induce true notions
Unfalsifiable hypothesis
Presumption of any genesis

In the name of curiosity
Stipulate the epitome through discovery
Shun the foolish speculations
Use empirical and objective methods

Semmelweis reflex

Why blame my opinion for its innocence?
They can't discern views with another lens
Heteronomy splintered into bedlam
Hatching a plethora of lunatic damn

The burden of proof lies on the believers
Red herrings argued by deceivers

Illogic assertions free of evidence
Can be rejected with no hindrance

Rebuke the guillible philistine
The transcendent and the asinine

Spreading amongst us all
To make our lore fall

Will those simpletons realize?
Track Name: Tree Of Life
Complexity and stability of molecules
Ordinary process of physics and chemistry
We are all survival machines
Through perpetual mutation

In this competitive reality
Some are programed to kill
For chemical energy
Where we wrestle to live

Violent concurrence to produce offsprings
Generations of natural selection
Adapt through extreme climates as livings
A convoluted world of prediction

(Every decision is a gamble)
Action is a chancy business

Future of abiogenesis arrived
Survival of the fittest and stable
The tree of life relating all species
By achieving multiplication

In this competitive reality
Some are programed to kill
For chemical energy
(Where we all wrestle to live)

Violent concurrence to produce offsprings
Generations of natural selection
Adapt through extreme climates as livings
(A convoluted world of prediction)

Wrestle to survive and procreate
A struggle for purposeless existence
Programed obligation to relate
A conclusion from common descent

Through selfish or altruistic methods
The best suited for its environment
From the platform of diversity
Kinship without obliged affinity

The true face of nature
(Our instincts to conjure)
There's no evolutive goal
No foresight for the future
Track Name: Mindless Symbolism
When development leads to pejoration
Progress trap hidden beneath reward
Advise searched in all connotations
Find vigilant warnings to discard

Servants kneeling to the empire
Worthless nationalism restrained by culture

The pride to follow the violent tradition
(The pride to follow the violent tradition)

Principles to separate the globe
Obscene conceits to conquer frontiers

(Mindless symbolism)
The coward sacrifice
Dignified as heroic

Useless as to administer medicine to the dead

(To administer medicine to the dead)

Nothing humble in bragging modesty
Venerate the murders among pawns
Fruitless honor to trust the enemy
Gratitude between opposite crowns

What a waste of golden opportunity
A barbaric way to defend a country

Lacking the true courage of a contrarian
(Lacking the true courage of a contrarian)

To birg and corf as an habitus
Can't break the chains of orthodoxy

(Mindless symbolism)
The coward sacrifice
Dignified as heroic

Useless as to administer medicine to the dead

(To administer medicine to the dead)

For we must now create a deviance to their norm

A cognitive dissonance to the ideas they conform

Worthless symbolic capital
Track Name: Manipulate Through Sanctity
Billion hands clasped in a absent candor
While two hands usurp the throne they elect
Destitute of needs with no rancor
While we're seduced by the halo effect

Bias influenced by impressions
Delusive languages by behaviors
All to mislead our convictions
For rationality is our savior

The supernatural and ignorance poisoning our minds
It seems so alluring and inviting
The illusions of knowledge
A perfect tool to control and exploit

The gift of slavery is offered...
By those kings cloaked in friends
By celestial dictatorship
By dramatic rise of charlatans

Manipulation coming from... from sanctity

Making us feel secure through fraudulent fallacies
Through those fake moralities (Hidden monarchies)
Faith will surrender all our minds, the delusion of all kind
Subjective illusions called revelations

They're exemplifying our values
By doing the contrary
Claiming to hold the cures
By condemning free inquiry

Claiming...
Claiming to hold the cures
The cures for false malady

Claiming...
Claiming to hold the cures
Manipulate through sanctity

Argumentum ad populum
Unbalancing the pendulum
Argumentum ad populum
Pacing over the conundrum

Why?
Track Name: Vortex Of Zilch
My halo dwindles into zilch
So that no lark remains to filch
Wielding values of vain ethos
Pinnacle of the blank cosmos
As I taper through the never
Into the vortex of cipher
The whole Universe to abate
Everything to obliterate

The staid energy dims until entropy
Erode to omit solemn empathy
(Pity...)

The lemniscate is engraved in silence
Infinity of time murders existence
(Absence...)

(The miracle is that there is no miracle)
The laws of nature are never suspended in our response
(The miracle is that there is no miracle)
A universe stranger than our bounded imagination

Pilfer all relative nadirs
As the nimbus points the radars
The vapors of life reach zenith
Geometry form azimuth
Research unfathomable quarks
Hurl the electron as it sparks
Just unbelievable in size
Stars from so far will hypnotize...

...My senses...

Small units to measure protons

(The miracle is that there is no miracle)
The laws of nature are never suspended in our response
(The miracle is that there is no miracle)
A universe stranger than our bounded imagination

Are we under a misapprehension?
Can we ever find out the true notion?

It's an epistemological obstacle we shall all surmount
It's not a mystery but a puzzle we shall solve with count

Break the bounds

So try to grasp this paradox
A single thought outside the box
From the quantum fluctuations
Methods to inflate dimensions
Compute the moment to efface
The metric expansion of space
Fathom the way of the atom
The answers lost at the bottom
Track Name: Comforting Fantasy
Following the bigoted masses
Blindfold hysteria led by counter-intuition
Paranoia to conspiracy theories
Mix facts to attend superstition

Extrapolate utopia from partial data
Reassured by false premise
Childish feelings to live in comforting fantasies
The arrogance to overvalue self

(The infancy of the species)
A pernicious imagination
A securing veil hiding reality
A comforting lie full of ambiguity

A way to circumvent truth
(A way to grudge verity)
Naive overconfidence strutting in solace
Evidence dismissed by the will to believe

A security blanket
Covering metaphysical lies
Pseudoscience protected
Protected in consoling cries

Assertions by bystanders of dreams
(Assertions by bystanders of dreams)
*solo*

Wailings and incantations
Assisted by mirages
Committing sins of your own sect
Individual cult of spiritual hypocrisy

Eyewitness testimony

From an unevolved commonsense
