Track Name: Swan Song - Cancer Media
There is no truth, just decades of lies
we all believe and people die
nowhere to turn, no one is pure
the realization there is no cure
humanity will always be the cancer
for which there is no fucking answer

everyone has their own agenda
a neverending stream of propaganda

when will you realise?

there is no truth, just decades of lies
we all believe and people die
if you’re not selling you’re being sold
swallow everything that you’re told
marching to the tune of humanity
never ending woes of insanity
the greatest lie they ever told
is that you’re not wearing a blindfold
layers & layers of misdirection
creating your total disconnection
to the world we really inhabit
blind to the entire media sabbat

humanity is the cancer
Track Name: Swan Song - Ivory Towers
not in my name
not in my name
not in my name
never in my fucking name

a trail of destruction has led us here
so let’s make one thing perfectly clear
your greed blinded you to the consequence

destruction is a horrid game
one you play with no, no fucking shame

not in my name
not in my name
not in my name
never in my fucking name

divide and conquer through the party lines
setting your foundations for the pipelines
to carry the blood money back home
leaving behind desert catacombs

no sons from ivory towers
will serve the western powers
no sons from ivory towers
will serve the western powers

not in my fucking name
we will never play your game
for taking the lives of the brave
we will despise you to the grave

mankind is led to the slaughter
like trying to swim with blood in the water
our heads pushed under the surface
by the bastards who deem us worthless

destruction is a horrific game
destruction and we know who to blame
Track Name: Swan Song - Helping Hand
indifference to the pain
not seeing the strain
a cold blanket of nothing
a lifetime of not trusting
“man I’m feeling weak”
isn’t the answer that you seek
is your own banality
too much of your personality?

the stigma blocks the (helping) hand
keeping your mind in the wasteland
if a stitch in time, saves nine
then we’re running out of time

broken bones and broken minds
how can we be so unkind?
empathy for one but not the other
how can man ignore his brother?
too many problems hidden inside
but the only way out isn’t suicide
pretend the problem isn’t there
pretend that we really do care

stick your head in the sand
leave someone else to understand
if people can’t talk about the problem
it eats away deep inside them

broken bones and broken minds
how can we be so unkind?
broken bones and a broken mankind
how can we be so blind?
how can we be so blind?

the mental health of your bothers
shouldn’t scare you like the others

open up to each other
open up to your brothers
Track Name: Swan Song - Endless Cycle
there’s a hidden strength inside that I could never possess
but you couldn’t have survived without anything less
I can’t imagine what you’ve been through
but after all this time you still stayed true
life has been trying to beat you down
but in my mind you still wear the crown

I see the tears and I feel the rage
sometimes it’s like you’re still stuck in that cage
the scars that have been left behind
are only festering in your mind
my thirst for vengeance will never end
just as your will, will never bend

there’s a hidden strength inside that I could never possess
but you couldn’t have survived without anything less

an endless cycle as old as mankind itself
an innate sickness perpetuating endlessly
for which there is no end in sight
despite how hard we fight

so we move forward together
strong like birds of a feather
Track Name: Who Cares? - Apology
Sunk as far as I could go
Lowest of the low
Nothing nice inside my head
All I saw...
Black and red
Never said sorry...
Never said thanks...
For the time you gave me
A second chance...
Cut me down
From that fucking rope
On the day that I...
LOST ALL HOPE.
Track Name: Who Cares? - Forever True
To my past, I’m forever true
To the things that destroyed my youth
Try as I must to ignore the pain
The memories always remain
Now, every time that I close my eyes
I can’t help but realise
The path that I now fucking tread
Is the path that I once hated ...
Never thought I’d become this,
Going through the motions, drinking beers
Became a statistic, another lad
Ever since I lost my dad
Don’t get me wrong I’m not making excuses
I’m still smiling even though I’m losing
I’ve never hidden my scars from you
And I’ve tolerated the years of abuse
As for everything they say I do?
I am what I am, forever true
Track Name: Who Cares? - Back In Step
Blindly accepting the mediocrity
We’ve been fed by society
Ridicule all that dare
To escape the monotony
Of a life beaten down
Hopes crushed without a sound
This life can be so cold
We’re just a product that can’t be sold...
This can’t be all there is
Succumbing to your peers
All hope will not transcend
This is not the end
The future’s fucked, the future’s bleak
When people are afraid to speak
Go through the motions, accepting fate
To that outlook I can’t relate
Close your eyes, go back to sleep
Count yourself in amongst the sheep
When you wake, you’ll wonder why
You wasted life falling in line
This can’t be all there is
Succumbing to your fears
All hope will not transcend
This is not the end
How many times can I write this song?
I don’t believe and I don’t belong
In this clichéd mentality,
Your way of life seems redundant to me
What happened to staying true?
What happened to being you?
Forgotten what you stand for
Now another faceless bore
Trade your soul to gain some respect
Destined to be another reject
You have no pride
Someone I used to know
Track Name: Who Cares? - Newc the World
Why bother trying to fit in?
You can be happy in your own skin
Make amends with yourself
You can fix your mental health
What have you got to lose?
What have you got to prove?
Fuck what your friends say
And live your life your way
All have our problems, all had our fights
And our share of sleepless nights
Dwelling on time wasted
Becoming faceless
What have you got to lose?
What have you got to prove?
Five words in my head
Are we having fun?
Are we having fun?
Are we having fun?
Are we having fun yet?
I’ll stay the same
I’ll be myself
I won’t change for you
I won’t stay for you
Newc the world, here’s to the past
Be grateful that it didn’t last
Newc the world, here’s to today
Tomorrow’s not guaranteed
Newc the world heres to the future
As if we have one
Newc the world
Newc the world
Newc the fucking world
