Lord over creation
Hands across the nation
Woe to human kind
Woe to human kind

(STAND BACK) - You burn the medic
(THROWN BACK) - I'm broken
(STARE BACK) - Attack, attack, attack...
(THE NEW BLACK!!!) - THE FACE OF CREATION

Woe to you, mankind

And it can never be held in stasis
What's on your mind?
WOE TO YOU MANKIND

(STAND BACK) - You taste the taste
(THROWN BACK) - I'm broken
(STARE BACK) - Attack, attack, attack...
(THE NEW BLACK!!!) - THE NEW BLACK

SLEEPWALKING
Your lack of vision is the division
There's no vision in your mind, back the FUCK off
In time...same thing as.. but off

With the vision in mind
Superficial is time
Inquisition the mind in the FACE OF CREATION


In morning they will come alone
And we arise as if a new day's dawned for everyone
But now we know...as much as we don't show...
OUR WORLD HAS BEEN BLACKENED

    General CommentThis song is definitely about how all these fuckers are trying to get a piece of Dev and get him to produce music faster than he can, and to only do SYL. Hell, this is the only Devy song that shares a name with its album (except maybe ZTO), why do you think that is? It's about the album itself.

    General CommentThis song is definitely about the album itself. He's saying goodbye to his own craziness and telling the industry to go fuck itself.

    My Opinion"In time...same thing as.. but off"

    Sounds like a premonition of "Deconstruction"
