Track Name: Flock Analogy
If you answer to, what you perceive to be, a higher authority
Whose only concern is preserving the good name of their fading deity
Then all of your actions will become infallible by proxy
Sweeping under the rug leaves no incentive to stop
A fish rots from the head down

Ostensibly caring shepherds of flocks
Are wolves in disguise
They hide disgusting minds
Behind kind lying eyes

This systemic purity is pure fettered fallacy
And if I can continue with an appropriately phallic analogy;
Clergymen’s members maim and dismember
While arch-diocese lie time and time and time again

The irony must be lost on this cesspit of sin
As they continue to clip their own angels wings
Forgive the fathers’ indiscretion when they let the demons in
And don’t teach the kids to question or they might question what you’re teaching
Track Name: Beach Baby
The boy starts to think, ‘maybe I’m just a waste of breath?’
That’s what the mind resorts to when life’s only purpose becomes trying to avoid death
The girl thinks, ‘to breathe is to fear, so now I’m scared to breathe’
And the rubble on the streets seem as natural as the tears on cheeks
And the screams
And the screams

Me and father and mum can’t run quick enough to safety
Another country
A Mecca in the West
Where the tabloid press call us pests
I think they want me dead
Did I fail some kind of unspoken test?
Actually, you know what, fuck it – don’t waste your breath.
