Skin Shedder 05:37
This is a ritual This is a ritual A ritual song This is a ritual A ritual song Freedom is more than an illusion Close your eyes and you will be free Free in your heart Free in your mind Let your thoughts flow Let them flow Let your thoughts flow For a moment Forget the greedy Forget the selfish The world is shaped towards their will To dominate To take To feed their ego They rule supreme They are in every facet of life They rule supreme They are in every facet of life They are demons that possess us They are demons that possess us Close your eyes Close your eyes Look at your heart Feel your heart Look at your heart Feel your heart See the disillusion Eating away at your essence With your mind Breath Breath Breath Let the lies fall away Let the lies fall away Fall away, fall away Look at who you are Look at your self You are not a cog in a great machine You are not a consumer You are not a cog in a great machine You are not a consumer You are not a follower You are both your own being and connected to the universe The vast universe, the vast universe The universe so much more than the petty lives of the rich and famous Shed away the skin they have tucked you in Shed, shed, shed, shed, shed, shed Shed away the skin they have tucked you in Shed away the skin they have tucked you in Behind your closed eyes be who you are Maybe a day will come When we can open our eyes and see A good world A honest world A healthy world Until then Nurture the fire within Within your mind Until then Nurture the fire within your mind Breath, Breath, Breath, Breath, Breath, Breath, Breath

I want to sing a good song I want to sing a happy song I want to make you smile I want to see you dance I wish I could I wish I could Yes I do But those words do not come out Only thoughts of anger Of what could have been What we could have done What we could have done But those words do not come out Only thoughts of anger Of what could have been What we could have done I believed the world was magical Instead It is mechanical Predictable Mechanical Predictable It’s people follow A manual for success A script for happiness An idea for living Ah ha ha I work for so much But there is nothing there Every hole is empty Every mind is lost Every spirit destroyed I want to sing a good song I want to sing a happy song I want to make you smile I want to see you dance I wish I could I wish I could Yes I do I wish I could I’m lost I’m blinded I’m deluded I’m trapped I continue Continue to sing Continue to breath I have a calling I tell you I have a calling Not because of you Not because of me But because of us Because of us, I have a calling

The tinker killer Tinker killer The tinker killer Automated in every action He would look into your eyes He would read your words A pattern was followed A plan to kill Not by macabre means Not by direct action The tinker killer Supreme in every way A touch striped away freedom A thought invaded your will The tinker killer The tinker killer The tinker killer Tinker killer The tinker killer Lives behind your eyes Scrutinizing Striping Dissecting Disrupting Rerouting Replacing The tinker killer The tinker killer Tinker killer The tinker killer A fine-tuned machine A mandate dictates A mandate dictates Who to kill and who to spare A mandate dictates Who to kill and who to spare A victim Has nobody Has no legacy A victim Has nobody A victim Has no legacy Al that is left Is a shadow that fades away When the sun sets Is a shadow that fades away When the sun sets No one ever realizing No one ever seeing The hand of the tinker killer Tinker killer The hand of the tinker killer Tinker killer Striping away the Thoughtful Scalping the honest Dissecting the mindful Such is the way of the tinker killer Tinker killer The tinker killer The tinker killer The tinker killer Tinker killer
