PositionNotReachable The Cleansing is a mix of industrial, electronic and rock. Guitars are prominent in most of the tracks which combine nicely with vocals that are clean yet gritty. I appreciate that I can clearly hear the vocals which is hard to find in the industrial world. Lyrics are intelligent and call on you to scream them out! This album has it all, fast pace and hard hitting sounds on Second Skin, slower and heavy hitting guitars on Can’t Break Me, truthful and fist raising lyrics on The Cleansing. Favorite track: Second Skin.

Track Name: Watch It Burn
It starts out as a want
But now it's planted a seed
Before you know it it's grown
Until it's become a need

The roots grow deep
And yet it still erodes
It keeps getting bigger and bigger
And bigger until it implodes

Until there's...
Nothing left to do but to watch the sun swallow the earth
There's Nothing left but to watch the world burn
And when everything you've ever known is gone in a flash
There will be nothing left to do but to choke on the ashes now there's...
Nothing left to do but to watch the sun swallow the earth
There's Nothing left but to watch the world burn
And when everything you've ever known is gone in a flash
There will be nothing left to do but to choke on the ash

It starts out as a lust
And grows into a greed
Before we even begin we're now drowning in sin
And there nothing left to do but bleed

The fire starts out as warmth
And grows into the rage
Everything that you know is gone
And hate takes center stage

watch the world burn... and we all fade away...
Track Name: The Cleansing
We've heard the last cries of a dying nation
Giving those in power cause for celebration
The founding fathers lay and rot inside their graves
While this great and mighty country turns us all into slaves

The time is over to uphold the constitution
We need nothing less than a violent revolution

Get up get up
It's time to get on your feet
So put your fists in the air because it's going down tonight
Get up get up
It's time to take to the streets
Will you be just one more statistic or will you stand up and fight?

Age of diplomacy ended decades ago
When the wealthy and the greedy made democracy just for show
A nation under god is nothing but a schism
'Cause the only god we worship here is Capitalism

They've gotten off easy for far too long
We can't expect them to get better when they think they've done thing wrong

Get up get up
It's time to get on your feet
So put your fists in the air because it's going down tonight
Get up get up
It's time to take to the streets
Will you be just one more statistic or will you stand up and fight?
Get up get up
It's time to get on your feet
So put your fists in the air because it's going down tonight
Get up get up
It's time to take to the streets
Will you be just one more statistic or will you stand up and fucking fight?

The world is coming to the final act
Continue as part of the problem or formulate plan of attack
Your vote means nothing, actions speak louder than words
So when no one stops to listen: time to make yourself be heard

Get up get up
It's time to get on your feet
So put your fists in the air because it's going down tonight
Get up get up
It's time to take to the streets
Will you be just one more statistic or will you stand up and fight?
Get up get up
It's time to get on your feet
So put your fists in the air because it's going down tonight
Get up get up
It's time to take to the streets
Will you be just one more statistic or will you stand up and fucking fight?
Get up get up
Get up get up
Stand up and fucking fight.
Track Name: Can't Break Me
Another stone that has been left unturned
Another torch that continues to burn
Break the bones tear the tendons
Pull me into the dirt
Rise up, you know I'm gonna make it hurt

Because
I... am the thorn in your
I... am the one who won't die
Buried beneath your lie
You can't break me

I'm the rebellion that you cannot put down
An insurrection rising up from the ground
Chain me up, tie me down
Whip me until I bleed
A little mutiny is what this world needs
Eternal light that can be seen through the dark
Undying fire that begins with a spark
Tear the soul from the body
But the fire burns on
Too hot to stamp out, to enraged to be gone, because-

I... am the thorn in your
I... am the one who won't die
Buried beneath your lie
You must know that I
Am the thorn in your eye
Am the one who won't die
The one you can't nullify
You can't break me
Track Name: Second Skin
Single file, step in line, every single time
Undefined and maligned until your role is assigned
Another soul brought to life, welcome to mankind
Hope you're ready to be left behind...

Born into servitude and forced prostration
Constant abuse presents a complication
A perfect essence ready to transcend
Becoming something that they can't comprehend

Set your core to overheat
No one can tell you that you're incomplete
Never back down, never accept defeat
Their way of thinking is obsolete

Feeling alone even when surrounded
Resilience and resistance compounded
An axiom they will never abide
Our truth is something that we can't keep inside

(I pull on my second skin, step back and get ready for the war to begin)

Keep pushing forward
Keep pushing on
Steel yourselves because the real fight has just begun
Step out of line
Strength from within
Finally alive in my second skin

(Inside my second skin)

Maybe alone but never forsaken
Treading upon the path less taken
Simply existing is not enough
Open your eyes, arise, awaken

Keep pushing forward
Keep pushing on
Steel yourselves because the real fight has just begun
Step out of line
Strength from within
Finally alive in my second skin
Keep pushing hard
Keep pushing on
The fight ends when every last one has withdrawn
Step out of line
Strength from within
We are alive in our second skin

System reset: insufficient
Self-destruct or self-sufficient
Total system annihilation
Foreign element elimination
Rules we cannot abide
Free will means we're free to decide
So cut their power and blackout
Our new world is free of doubt
Plant the charges on the structure
Make way for the counter-culture
Resistance: The only way
Cease society's decay
Blind masses make decisions
Humankind in subdivisions
United under variation
Is the only way to vindication
Track Name: Indivisible
We are not kindred spirits
We're more like yin and yang
Fighting, tumbling, spinning, but
Underneath we're the same

And though you fear my distance
You'll see its just a feint
Our bonds are tied with canvas and
This space is just more paint

If you leave
I'll give you a piece of me
I will find a way to breath it
Into a place where you can keep it
But if you stay
I know we can find a way
I will fight with all my heart
Every single beating part
In your hands and in your soul
We're indivisible

We are not calm civilians
We're more like warriors
Although we have no weapons,
Just our hands and our words

But we fight with keys and plectrums
Dance with the sun and moon
We know there is no forever
But mo[u]rning comes to soon

If you leave
I'll give you a piece of me
I will find a way to breath it
Into a place where you can keep it
But if you stay
I know we can find a way
I will fight with all my heart
Every single beating part
In your hands and in your soul
We're indivisible
