Track Name: Tranquilized
There’s a dictator in your head
There’s disorder in your heart
When it reaches a tipping point
Everything falls apart

There’s creation in your bed
There’s destruction in your art
Schools feel like jails feel like factories
Every cog plays its part

All anxieties tranquilized
All boredom amused
All society mechanized
It’s futile to refuse

There’s a dictator in your head
There’s disorder in your heart
When it reaches a tipping point
Everything falls apart

All anxieties tranquilized
All boredom amused
All priorities compromised
Get used to being used
Track Name: What We Need
Yet another moment has been stolen, stressin’ that no cash is flowin’
Guided by voices, we made choices, but decisions have consequences

All signs say it’s all downhill
But we try and push the boulder up still

The past ate the future
Now they’re tearing out the sutures!

What if we could have what we need?
I’m not talking about wealthy
Just enough to keep from sinking
Week after week after week after impossible week
Track Name: Se Desvanece (en aire)
Woah, oh oh
Todo sigue cambiando
Woah, oh oh
Nada queda lo mismo (me está vacio)

Todo lo sólido se desvanece en aire
Lo santo es profanado, nada es permanente

Mantener la sanidad es un trabajo duro
En este rápido mundo
Volando hasta el futuro
Track Name: Sistema de Sangre
Sistema de sangre
Sistema de sangre
Sistema de sangre
Sistema de sangre

Tenemos que luchar, no solo hablar
Para enfrentar el sistema de sangre
No podemos aceptar ni conformar
Hay que cambiar el sistema de sangre

Digo NO MAS a la explotación
De la tierra, de nuestros hermanos
Digo NO MAS a la violencia
Contra las mujeres y todos los marginados

Tenemos que luchar, no solo hablar
Para enfrentar el sistema de sangre

No voy a participar
No voy a participar
No voy a participar
No voy a participar
Track Name: Del Alt-Right
Can we just hit ctrl-alt-del on the alt-Right?
Don’t you think that’d be sweet?
I don’t know if I can stay passive
When the threat that we face is this massive

Sometimes I just can’t believe this new century
It feels like 1933
They can’t make us invisible
United we’re indivisible

Hate will try and bury love
But seeds will grow
