Track Name: As Your Light Fades The Darkness Screams
As Your Light Fades The Darkness Screams
(Steve Towson)


your master is ready to feed
and it is you who are his next victim
and no amount how you beg or you plead
will satisfy what drives within
but theres no reason to cry
for this is not how it will end
so cease with your sentence there are no good byes
for you time is irrelevant
as the sun sets on your evening sky

so your lesson
it begins
into the state of forced humility
when the Klan calls you will do the bastards deeds
as your light fades the darkness screams

and all your violence
you know it dont change a thing
for all your desire to divide and conquer
only makes you one of the enemy
so repent your crimes as I draw my stake
over all you control and all your command
and as you slide into eternal night

so your lesson
it begins
into the state of forced humility
when the Klan calls you will do the bastards deeds
as your light fades the darkness screams
Track Name: Hearts and Flowers
Hearts and Flowers
(Mark Callaghan)


All those crosses on your lounge room wall
are not the kind of thing that I can ignore
when there's death and there's destruction
when there's starvation and plague
put your hand into your pocket
do you give or do you take

only you
send me hearts and flowers again
only you
send me hearts and flowers again
when there's nothing left to say
and there's little left to do
when there's nothing

All those patterns in your lino floor
that hint of religion in your kitchen decor
you've lost your way again
you're guilty and you know it
for that little gift of guidance is a random just the same

only you
send me hearts and flowers again
only you
send me hearts and flowers again
when there's nothing left to say
and there's little left to do
when there's nothing
Track Name: Blood Is Red
Blood Is Red
(Steve Towson)


I AM ME
I can not be
your
surreal currency
or your frivolous credit cards
for I AM ME

I am flesh
Flesh which feels
not some
electrical impulse
on an artificial circuit board
FOR I AM ME

BLOOD IS RED
RED
