Track Name: Ready to Erupt
My blood is boiling, lightning fills the sky
The rain keeps falling, steam is rising high
I’ve finished toiling at the fire
I’m ready to erupt

My mind is restless and searching from within
My body arches and quakes will begin
This time, you’re paying for your sins
I’m ready to erupt

Feel me, I’m the heat beneath your feet
See me, I’m the fire that cooks your meat
Free me, and start to make your peace
‘cause your world will turn to cinder and your end will be complete
I’m ready to erupt

My hands are idle, but my intentions are good
If I cause destruction it’s not because I’m rude
Fire and brimstone are my food
I’m ready to erupt

There’s some disruption in my function
mechanical contraptions, provoking my reactions
I love the Lady who rules in May
I’ll clear the path, she’ll have her way
And then we’ll start a brand new day
I’m ready to erupt
Track Name: Change Will Come
Change Will Come - Oya (Armstrong & Roschkov)


Although the end is now in sight

I fear the time is not quite right

For now, my gentle winds will blow

Hush My Lord, Change Will Come

Hush My Lord, Change Will Come

Clouds are fast over the land

Weather’s stranger every day

That’s just our planet’s ancient way

Chorus

Change is a constant thing you know

Only certainty will flow

Old will eventually go

Chorus
Track Name: Destroyer of Worlds
Like the Phoenix I am born with the ashes of fate

I spring from what is burned and what blossoms again

I seek no death for death’s sake but for life

To soar from all pain, from the wreckage of gain


As if I were evil,

Destroyer of the Worlds

you will rise and fall without me

as your Destroyer


With fierce wild robes

and a beast at my side

With my half open eyes

I can see a new sky


As if I were evil,

Destroyer of the Worlds

you will rise and fall without me

as your Destroyer
Track Name: The Garden is Overgrown
Yes my love I know that you're not evil
you only strive for change
this ship, it isn't sinking
the deck chairs can still be re-arranged

Have pity on my creations
they've worked hard to stake their place
Show a little cheer for them
as they near the end of the race

They really are noble creatures
who aspire to my goals
suffer the little humans
as they try to wield control
Too little, too late. We might as well wait
The garden is overgrown

Can you feel the satisfaction
as they fashion their own doom ?
Just a little more rope
and the end is coming soon

It's not what they intended
they're only trying to get by -
misguided and mismanaged,
with stars in their eyes

They really are noble creatures
who aspire to my goals
suffer the little humans
as they try to wield control
Too little, too late. We might as well wait
The garden is overgrown
Track Name: Suicide Seeds
For a century Monsanto
has weighed the earth with pain
making saccharine & styrofoam
and even Agent Orange

They also specialize
in bovine growth hormone
and hey I hear they're breeding pigs
that only they will own

Give them your cow, give them your land
they'll sell you a bag of beans
give them your hard earned money
they'll sell you suicide seeds

Destroying other species
poisoning the soil
reaping massive profits
while the farmers toil

They've taken over the food supply
with GM seeds for crops
You get sued if you don't buy them
who will tell the bastards STOP !

Give them your cow, give them your land
they'll sell you a bag of beans
give them your hard earned money
they'll sell you suicide seeds
