Track Name: Signals of Distress [Single Edit]
Where is God?
Where is reason?
Why does truth suffer from deception?
I have to wonder, when will any of this make sense?

Let me hear your practiced alibi
Give me all the reasons why
I should listen to a single word you say

Indoctrinate
Sell your hate
What kind of world would you consecrate?
Every soul the same
Cold and tame
Are you ready for the end game?
Indoctrinate
Sell your hate
Come on everybody, let's celebrate
That the end has come
God's will be done
Come on, come on, put your gun where your mouth is

Your security means more to you
Than your fellow man
Dead are rising
Yet you still don't understand

Let me hear your practiced alibi
Give me all the reasons why
I should listen to a single word you say

Indoctrinate
Sell your hate
What kind of world would you consecrate?
Every soul the same
Cold and tame
Are you ready for the end game?
Indoctrinate
Sell your hate
Come on everybody, let's celebrate
That the end has come
God's will be done
Come on, come on, put your gun where your mouth is

How could we be so blind?
Missing every sign
Sending signals of distress

How could we be so blind?
Wasting all this time
Sending signals of distress

Indoctrinate
Sell your hate
What kind of world would you consecrate?
Every soul the same
Cold and tame
Are you ready for the end game?
Indoctrinate
Sell your hate
Come on everybody, let's celebrate
That the end has come
God's will be done
Come on, come on, put your gun where your mouth is
Track Name: Dissect
Why can't you see
That no matter how dead I am inside
I'm still more man than the machine?

And no matter how dead I am inside
I'm still more man than the machine

Pin me to the plate; tear me open
See what makes me tick
Every moving part, the beating of my heart
Isn't the view beautiful and sick? (And SIC!)

Why can't you see
That no matter how dead I am inside
I'm still more man than the machine?

And no matter how dead I am inside
I'm still more man than the machine

Pry me open, what do you seek?
Are you looking for something you can believe?
Why do you ask me? Where can it be?
I told you, it's all inside of me

Make the incision; transplant the heart
Let's see if it takes
Liquefy the skin, mold it to fit
Fix it 'til it breaks
And when it does, just toss it aside
With the other fakes

Why can't you see
That no matter how dead I am inside
I'm still more man than the machine?

And no matter how dead I am inside
I'm still more man than the machine

Pry me open, what do you seek?
Are you looking for something you can believe?
Why do you ask me? Where can it be?
I told you, it's all inside of me

It's all inside of me
Track Name: Why Won't Anybody Party With Me?
Why won't anybody party with me?

We turn the lights down, bring in the large crowd
Cue the bass, kick the dark sound up loud
We see your faces turn, music you've never heard
To see you move is the only thing that we yearn for

Do you feel my need, my desire?
Why won't anybody party with me?
I just want to set this club on fire
Why won't anybody party with me?
I didn't come all this way just to stand on a stage
And stare out at your vacant expression
I got up here for you, so the least you can do
Is get on your feet and fucking move

Why won't anybody party with me?

Is this mic on? Are we coming through?
Can you see us? Are the stage lights blinding you?
Are the subs up loud enough?
I have to wonder, do we bring the right stuff?

We turn the lights down, bring in the large crowd
Cue the bass, kick the dark sound up loud
We see your faces turn, music you've never heard
To see you move is the only thing that we yearn for

Do you feel my need, my desire?
Why won't anybody party with me?
I just want to set this club on fire
Why won't anybody party with me?
I didn't come all this way just to stand on a stage
And stare out at your vacant expression
I got up here for you, so the least you can do
Is get on your feet and fucking move
