You're just a shadow of your former self, hiding behind waste

Focusing on distractions to keep you away from the truth
Your daily routine: frustration and consumption
Illusion comes in fancy packed boxes, shit made of gold
Your harmonious childhood turned into a nightmare

Sick, perverted human creation

Delusion won't affect me in this artificial world
Ruled by humanity erasing scum
They'll lure you with strident colors
Abuse you forever once you're trapped

Stench of beauty, stench of cancer
Stench of a throwaway society, choked on plastic

Piteous, the way how things devolve

Hypocritical donations to calm your mind
Miserable excuses for your senseless dissipation
The mask you're wearing is suffocating you
You're vomiting shit, collapse is near

You're just a shadow of your former self, you are the waste


from Regress In Progress, released June 6, 2014
