CONsume 04:53
Your over-the-counter counterculture - Is counterfeit It's just another market For you to turn to shit (chorus) Con-sume! - It all comes around, then it goes around again Con-sume! - New from the box - straight to the bin Con-sume! - It all comes around, then it goes around again Exhume! - That which was - and will be again - Con-sume! Why would the advertisers be untrue? False profits they are not Don't you know their biggest interest is YOU? Turnover - take another shot Drink this, spray that - you're irresistible Wear this, not that - you're bound to score Once you're snagged - is it reversible? And does it matter if you look and smell just like a whore? This supplement is bound to perk you up (But tumours may result down the line) You need an increase of at least a cup (Let's hope the silicone don't leak into your spine) Mass produce - Regurgitate - What's the use Reverse your fate (?) (chorus) Take an old hit - update the beat Rehash-repackage-resell - won't be cheap It's not theft it's "sampling" - watch the sheep As they fork over the green & move their feet Bald is back! No wait, long hair Be yourself? Why should you care? Buy, sell Sell-by The gypsy-rockstar-heroin-look is gonna be big this year Hang on that's just passed - what's left, "oh dear!" Let's push the porn-goth-football-bouncer-kindergarten style It's bound to get them talking - if only for a while (chorus) Fast food-PCs-cell phones-cars Venues-movies-hairstyles-bars TV-sex-pop-magazines No there's no in between It weighs less, but it costs the same Who do you think stands to blame? With blindfold on and wallet gaping Sing along to the consumer raping Portion packed religion Salvation at a price Porn empires worth billions There's nothing a credit card can't slice (chorus)

Virus 04:05
Virus You are the virus > I am the virus Biology > Maternal womb Technology > Motherboard Biology > Prenatal tomb Technology > Digital law Protection > Infection (chorus) Virus You are the virus > I am the virus The virus in us Virus You are the virus > I am the virus The virus is us Inner space > Conception Human race > Infiltration Cyberspace > Deception Without a face > Contamination Chemistry > Electricity Protection > Infection Hacked in, like a locust spawn Politicians, bitch ‘til dawn No hard currency, hard luck you’re born Cell & data, ripped & torn Coursing veins > a sullen fall Fiber-optic strains > no borders, no walls Pain reigns - squirm and crawl Artificial brains, to rule it all (chorus) Digital electrodes > end users- & abusers We sit and watch as it implodes, both beggars and the choosers The dim & wise, the rich & poor – united in equal demise Its domination ensured Protection > Infection (chorus)

Midnight 03:31
The sky's bruised black - The sun drips blood It's setting in - a sea of mud Beyond the cracks - born & bred To induce heart attacks Vampiria arise from death Caked eyes and last night's blood on their breath At midnight they will fall from grace The last two of their morbid race They want to feed on lust and drugs And start the night with lines and hugs You do me first – Time is no issue I’ll tie your boots – No rule of thumb As we get dressed – The residue In our ghastly suits – Of what’s to come My corset – Pull your strings Your boots – Tuck me in My make-up – Translucent masks Your roots – Each designated task Swaying angles dressed in black Venture out for another snack Pavement princesses relinquish to none Get their fill before the morning comes We walk but we are so undead About to paint this small town red Elegantly we fall from grace The last remnants our little race The sky’s bruised black - The sun drips red It’s setting in, a sea of mud Beyond the cracks – born & bred Their nourishment – your precious blood

SleepWalkers 03:15
Wake Up When ideologies clash Religion > Collision Casualties - trapped in between As so-called "leaders" lack vision Wake Up Mounting tension - Life's suspension Have you no shame - Always passing the blame... (Wake Up) As you do the buck - One cog stuck Grinds the whole machine - Turns pure life obscene Wake Up From the 1st to the 4th world All of its dimensions Conflict & hatred continue to unfurl Too many to mention Wake Up Sleepwalking With open eyes

Tabloid Android You fabricate and masturbate Pontificate and irritate You're a tabloid android A mechanized moron on auto-drive God knows how you avoid - Getting skinned alive The art of blurring fact with fiction And written contradiction Causes crap and friction (No retraction in the next edition) Save the fantasy For your "unfinished novel's" pages You can't leave us be But, cram us into cages Box us in - to suit your needs Deadline! Pick up the speed Add sauce, add juice, add lies How can you look them in the eyes? You fabricate - and masturbate Pontificate - and irritate You're a tabloid android A mechanized moron on auto-drive God knows how you avoid - Getting skinned alive Sell-sell, gotta sell! (repeat) Dig for dirt, dig for sleaze You can go to hell And we won't ask "please" You're missing the point by a mile This is not freedom of speech Just want to make your editor smile Dumb bastard - stupid bitch You're pathetic, you're so pathetic P-A-T-H-E-T-I and C! You're pathetic, you're so pathetic Hope one day you're more than a wannabe! Misinformation - Trick the nation Who cares about degradation - As long as it's in fashion You sensationalize - And you polarize Contracting flies - To your shit pies Simply add a tale And if no-one can prove it wrong then Press freedom will prevail And now you've got your own damn song Why are you so bitter? Wish you could be a celebrity? Does it make you feel better, Sacrificing your integrity? You fabricate - and masturbate Pontificate - and irritate You're a tabloid android A mechanized moron on auto-drive God knows how you avoid Getting skinned alive I wish I could leave you off the record But this just had to be said

Keep your eyes - On the sky No need to hide - From the fading light Because we come in Peace We come in Peace You live your lie Not asking "why?" Swallow your cries Wipe your eyes Because we come in Peace We come in Peace - To get a piece of you The way you treat your planet And population It's plain to see you've had it Can't stop the degradation You kill your children Crush your fellow man Destroy your resources Fast as you can We come in Peace To get a piece of you I... Realise Die... Or survive (take me with you!) I... Realise Die... Or survive We come in Peace (lead break) You never find what you seek You never reach your goals Throw yourself to the meek So we will take control If your greatest fear Is growing old When your body is weak We'll take your mind and soul We come in Peace

Up To You 02:57
Should you seek advice from Dr. Phil? Or resort to your own free will? Should you reach for a razor blade? Or go out and get laid? It's up to you Should you join the army, or stay in bed? Perhaps make plans to get wed? Can you spend more money than you earn? Are you a trouble-magnet, or will you never learn? It's up to you Do you need another, to affirm your state Or need a push or a leap of faith Do you fear to tread, when they turn the screws Like I said – it’s up to you Up to you It's up to you

THE LOVE SONG (Lyrics by Paul Blom) It’s always sports on TV Your annoying mates on the phone Pay no attention to me Boy, you can go at alone, so… Here’s your fucking love song Think I can’t detect your lies Obsessed with your brand new car It’s always “me”, “myself”, and “I” Your sorry ass won’t get far I can’t remember your touch Stay out ‘til quarter to 3 This is getting too much You think I’m too blind to see Your affection’s far too fake Your ass doesn’t house the rising sun We can all make mistakes And you’re my biggest one Here’s your fucking love song I'm sick of your face Sick of your clothes Sick of your expanding waist I'm sick of your friends Sick of your voice Sick of your boy-magazine trends Sick of your insensitivity Sick of your crap and infidelity I'm sick of everything you do - And baby - I'm sick of you! Fuck you, fuck you – Fuck Fuck you, fuck you – you Fuck Fuck you, fuck you – you Fuck Here’s your fucking love song Shove it

Siek + Sat 03:52
Translated lyrics below the Afrikaans Siek + Sat (Afrikaans) (chorus) Genoeg is genoeg Te laat is te vroeg Genoeg is genoeg Van die kerk tot die kroeg Ek is moeg vir korrupsie, moord, verkragting en doodslag En lang queue’s waar jy ure moet staan en wag Ek is moeg vir gravy-train swape, wat vat en kry sonder swoeg En agterbakse bliksems, wat hul eie sake vol ploeg Ek is siek en sat vir donsdose wat dink hulle weet wat Ek is siek en sat vir lighties wat dink hulle ken die pad Ek is sat en siek vir ou ballies wat hulle advies kan stick Ek is sat en siek vir kak musiek en kakker flieks Ek is moeg vir die lewe se contradictions En ek’s moeg vir politicians elke skrikkeljaar-klug met elections (chorus) Ek is gatvol vir cliché leefstyle wat uit die TV rol En ek is gatvol vir idiote wat agter trends aan-hol Ek is tot hiertoe vol met kunslose narre wat met spray cans jol Ek is tot hiertoe vol met taxi-drivers wat hul karre rol Ek is klaar met kinder- en diere-mishandelaars En is klaar met kansvatters en dwelmhandelaars (chorus) Ek is siek en sat vir besoedeling van nywerhede En om te leef in die verlede Gatvol vir leuens en verdraaide waarheid En vir die noodsaak om te veg vir vryheid Ek is absoluut bored met die Hilton terte Wat famous word omdat papa miljoene werd is Dit maak my lam dat oorloë steeds woed En ek is siek vir scum, nie opgesluit net lig beboet (chorus) Ek is tam vir slegte nuusberigte En baby fabrieke wat nie omsien na hul pligte Ek is siek en sat dat ons nie ‘n verkoue kan genees En dat mense daagliks moet leef in vrees Ek is siek en sat dat skoenmakers nie hou by hul lees En ek’s siek en sat date ek sien en sat moet wees Genoeg is genoeg Te laat is te vroeg Genoeg is genoeg Laat my walg, laat my wroeg Genoeg is genoeg! Below follows the English translation to the Afrikaans lyrics of the TERMINATRYX song SIEK+SAT - translated by Paul Blom SICK+TIRED (Music, Lyrics & Translation by Paul Blom) © Copyright 2008 Flamedrop Productions / ENT Entertainment (Chorus) Enough is enough Too late is too soon Enough is enough From the church to the saloon I’m tired of corruption, murder, rape and manslaughter And long queue’s where you wile away the hours I’m tired of gravy-train morons, who simply take without sweat And cocky bastards filling their own pockets I am sick and tired of pre-pubescents who think they know it all I am sick and tired of youngsters who believe they know the way I am sick and tired of old farts who can stick their advice I am sick and tired of crap music and crapper movies I am tired of life’s contradictions And I’m tired of politicians every leap year farce with elections (Chorus) I’ve had enough of cliché lifestyles rolling from the TV And I’ve had enough of idiotic trend chasers I’ve had it up to here with artless clowns playing with spray cans I’ve had it up to here with taxi-drivers rolling their cars I’m done with child- and animal abusers And I am done with chancers and drug dealers (Chorus) I am sick and tired of pollution from industries And to live in the past Tired of lies and twisted truth And for the need to have to fight for your freedom I am absolutely bored with the Hilton tarts Who become famous because daddy’s worth million$ It paralyzes me that wars still rage And I am sick of scum, not locked up, just lightly fined (Chorus) I am exhausted of bad news bulletins And baby factories that don’t tend their responsibilities I am sick and tired that we cannot heal a cold And that people have to live in fear each day I am sick and tired that people don’t mind their own business And I am sick tired that I have to be sick and tired Enough is enough Too late is too soon Enough is enough Makes me choke makes me squirm Enough is enough
