Autonomous Zone

(Living outside of the grid is the goal)
(Misery lies at the heart of control)

Dancing and playing to be with my kind
Smoke, fuck and joke, I’m just passing the time
Celebrations, demonstrations, debate
Distorted music, my war surrogate

No Wi-Fi soup
Off the grid
No more phones
No drones
Autonomous Zone
Autonomous Zone

Where lovers of freedom gather to laugh
No heroes or icons, such values have passed
Squat, grow a plot, pursue beauty instead
Under the flag of the black and the red

No Wi-Fi soup
Off the grid
No more phones
No drones
Autonomous Zone
Autonomous Zone

Speakers at breaking point, dance on the decks
Letters go feral, options of wildness
Dancing and laughing, high as a kite
Anointed and animated all the night

Cacophony, lovely ear-splitting noise
With wild abandon, give freedom a voice
Living outside of the grid is the goal
Misery lies at the heart of control

No Wi-Fi soup
Off the grid
No more phones
No drones
Autonomous Zone
Autonomous Zone


Dawn of the Hive

Pylons of death pulsing wave after wave through us
Human transmitters restructure reality
Smart dust and barium sprayed at high altitude
Ingesting nano-worms, humans can resonate

On the skyline the pylons of death
Modulating our reality
Dawn Of The Hive

Angels, holograms, visions and voices come
Signals inducing inter-cerebral hearing
Modulating realities background frequency
Connect the hive mind by pylons and tower masts

Micro-wave tower satellite masts
On the skyline the pylons of death
Pulse low frequencies to all terrestrial life
Modulating our reality
Dawn Of The Hive

The all-seeing eye that never sleeps
Connects the hive mind by pylons and tower masts
The blasted tower, a place of dread
Pulsing the waves of the new normalisation

Micro-wave tower satellite masts
On the skyline the pylons of death
Pulse low frequencies to all terrestrial life
Modulating our reality
Dawn Of The Hive


New Cold War

Closing in on the Eastern border
It’s a unicentric one world order
With Sino-Russian capitulation
It’s an orchestrated end of nations

Food prices soaring
As the sanctions kicked in
And all the hawks cried more
Oil prices falling
And the propaganda talks war
Minerva has decreed a state of attrition, hostilities
New Cold War!
New Cold War!
New Cold War!

In the Arctic wastes under sheets of ice
Mineral resources corporate forces eye
Occupation ensures supply
Colour-coded revolutions sustain the lie

Food prices soaring
As the sanctions kicked in
And all the hawks cried more
Oil prices falling
And the propaganda talks war
Minerva has decreed a state of attrition, hostilities
New Cold War!
New Cold War!
New Cold War!

Breaking in a cold sweat just like the good old days
The drum beat of hostilities has started to play
A perverted thrill reminiscent of the big chill
Hair trigger giving everyone a shiver

Food prices soaring
As the sanctions kicked in
And all the hawks cried more
Oil prices falling
And the propaganda talks war
Minerva has decreed a state of attrition, hostilities
New Cold War!
New Cold War!
New Cold War!


Euphoria

Overcast, the branches bare
The autumn leaves have fallen
I can hear the magpies laugh
I can’t shake this melancholy

And then the clouds break
A ray of sunlight – Gloria!
As if a promise
Some strange kind of euphoria

Dark phantoms of the past
Some things are best forgotten
Like Orpheus, don’t look back
Best years are waiting for you

And then the clouds break
A ray of sunlight – Gloria!
As if a promise
Some strange kind of euphoria

And then the clouds break
A ray of sunlight – Gloria!
As if a promise
Some strange kind of euphoria

And in the darkness
A ray of sunlight – Gloria!
As if a promise
Some strange kind of euphoria
Euphoria
Euphoria
Euphoria


New Jerusalem

Fragmented communities staring at their screens in silence
All-night surfing till the dawn
Everyone’s hooked on online porn
All the people indifferent to torture
The media gives the thumbs up to the Gaza slaughter
Shallow, no attention span
No empathy for the common man

In Iraq a quarter of a million dead
Howdya feel about being misled?
The number one surveillance state
Zero regulation and there’s no debate
More lies, manufactured enemies
Divided nations need a common foe
A hornet’s nest created by the West
A new world order is the only goal

Look what we’ve become
Brainwashed Britain
Look what we’ve become
New Jerusalem!
New Jerusalem!

Another twat in the Number 10 flat
Dancing to the tune of Goldman Sachs
Another knob got the top job
Selling out to corporations
Culture, adult entertainment, calibrated to dumb down
Big Brother said ‘Strictly Come Dancing’
And everyone was dancing round and round

In Iraq a quarter of a million dead
Howdya feel about being misled?
The number one surveillance state
Zero regulation and there’s no debate
More lies, manufactured enemies
Divided nations need a common foe
A hornet’s nest created by the West
A new world order is the only goal

Look what we’ve become
Brainwashed Britain
Look what we’ve become
New Jerusalem!
New Jerusalem!
New Jerusalem!

Big Buzz

Walking on familiar ground reduced to tears
Remember friends and faces
Passing of the years
All those who shared with us
The ordeals and the pain
Hearts of gold walk down golden lanes

Big buzz, big buzz
On a high
Big buzz, big buzz
And I’m alive

Smiling faces of those who always care
All the good people
They’re always there
Follow your dream and you’ll go far
Every man and woman is a star

Still laughing after all these years…

Big buzz, big buzz
On a high
Big buzz, big buzz
And I’m alive

A time for gratitude, a time to thrill
Another chapter
A fresh breeze blowing in
Voices of ancestors
Cheering us on
Never stopping
Until the race is won

Big buzz, big buzz
On a high
Big buzz, big buzz
And I’m alive

Still laughing after all these years
Tears of laughter, tears of pride
Big buzz, big buzz
On a high
Big buzz, big buzz
And I’m alive


Delete

85 people own half the world
It’s raining barium and no-one’s concerned
Constructive chaos, doctrines of shock
Circumventing constitutions
They’ll never stop

We Must Delete
We Must Delete

Perpetual conflict, the only law
Desirability of peace shall be no more
The great motivator of man
Is always war
The All-Father of progress
God of the West

Cabals, self-elected elite
Delete, delete
We Must Delete

When getting to work costs more than you earn
And water tastes like waste
And is ready to burn
While you pay their taxes you pay their debt
You buy their bombs and you buy into death

Cabals, central banks
Self-elected elite
Delete
We Must Delete
We Must Delete


I Am The Virus

Death, misery and tears
Calculated waves of fear
Drawn up by think tanks
There's a darkness in the west
Oil swilling
Guzzling corporate
Central banking
Mind-fucking omnipotence

I am the fury
The spirit of outrage
I am the fire
I am the virus, I am the virus
I am the furnace
Where resentment glows
I am the bias
I am the virus, I am the virus

False flags and black ops
Tavistock manufactured shocks
Something's gone horribly wrong
Hot flushes for the neo-con
A population
In deep denial
Contagion released
From a phial

I am the fury
The spirit of outrage
I am the fire
I am the virus, I am the virus
I am the furnace
Where resentment glows
I am the bias
I am the virus, I am the virus

I am the hydra deaded beast
I am the worm you can never delete
I am the dangers that never sleeps
I am the virus, I am the virus

I am the fury
The spirit of outrage
I am the fire
I am the virus, I am the virus

No one believes
In 9/11
Steel-framed buildings
Don't fall in seconds
Murderers in black robes
Decapitate innocents
The public's black stare
Did you sleep ok last night, Mr. Blair?

I am the fury
The spirit of outrage
I am the fire
I am the virus, I am the virus
I am the furnace
Where resentment glows
I am the bias
I am the virus, I am the virus

I am the hydra deaded beast
I am the worm you can never delete
I am the dangers that never sleeps
I am the virus, I am the virus

I am the fury
The spirit of outrage
I am the fire
I am the virus, I am the virus

I am the fury
The spirit of outrage
I am the fire
I am the virus, I am the virus
I am the furnace
Where resentment glows
I am the bias
I am the virus, I am the virus
