I'm in Hell 02:50
Adrian: I am rotting flesh There is nothing left For me to do But sit and wait to die I am by myself There is no one else Alone I'm in my mind Wading through time While I'm here Time moves slowly If I'm here Will I be happy once again I sit and wait Here in comfort Cutting shapes Making rounds for all the days I am rotting flesh There is nothing left For me to do But sit and wait to die I am by myself There is no one else Alone in my mind Wading through inside And i know How you see me running scared Still I go How I'm blissful unaware Will i show my thoughts to spies Corruption by demise But im outside Im outside Im outside outside outside (They say Do you Have a Weapon They say Do you Have a Motive Your loss Our gain Your blood Our drain Our bed Your mind Comfort In time) Pills swallow Makes me tired by design Hope I choke Cutlery can't cut through skin Discarded strands and strings Know that I cannot win This game where death seems like nothing more than a prize a prize a prize (They say Do you Have a Weapon They say Do you Have a Motive Your loss Our gain Your blood Our drain Our bed Your mind Comfort In time)

Commander Alsaidi: Blood will be spilled In the caves in the caves So they can be saved Bathe their young in the river in the river to help them Behave This is our burden This is our fight For them to be saved And bathed in light This is our Burden This is their fight For them to be saved And bathed in light Bathed in the warmth of the light in the light This is not just our fight This is not just our fight This is for them too Because without us without us they are lost Without us they are utterly lost You know that I exist for us cuz we need to grow and we need to bloom But you know that I exist for them no one else can see, no one else can breath You know that I exist with drive to educate and recalibrate You know that I exist for god to help guide them along to the promised land Just a formula In a casket It doesn’t matter What they believe Half devil and half child Take them by the hand and guide them home We must do our duty for the stars to save them from the savagery and barbarism Teach them to grow their wealth and land Own the soil own the dirt with gold in hand Formulate their feed and all their growth To blossom and flourish with Floria

Adrian: They shined a light inside my head And said that there is nothing left They peered inside the caverns to see your memory What was gone is pulverized Ripped in two and left to die I could say the same for me But my choice was gone I saw you again I saw you in my sleep believe I saw you again In my dreams you’ll wait for me Nobody’s home where I reside They’ve left too by no surprise I could say the same for me But my choice was gone How he took me away She told me where to go They gave me a pamphlet Said this is my new home I never had a choice to go In this temple I crumble I saw you again I saw you in my sleep believe I saw you again In my dreams you’ll wait for me He’s not listening to my wretched screams The only solace I have is my dreams I don’t know Where I'll live I'll live My motions restricted by a twitch The paths concerning that of which I built up for the last four years the last four years Take an opportunity to renew All of that which I have left to prove Has melted with the centrifuge the centrifuge God is dead and she always was What I thought before was just a bluff Built up inside my brain But her hope it gave me warmth and light And now I have no will to fight Maybe one day I’ll see I’ll see We’ll scream until there's nothing left We'll dance until there's nothing left Well praise until there's nothing left There's nothing left there's nothing left Lasky: No I don't wanna see walk alone alone again All these thoughts are founded yet still unfounded inside your head You're doing better than you think you are just hear what i can say You don't need a long trek all the lines are prospect so just stay out of your head

Dearer Sort 04:41
Commander Alsaidi: How can we apply Layers of gauze give them pause Grow this flower to have them smoke Only with gems they are blinded by ghosts Block their homes With guns and men never ask again Never ask again Never wonder why Never wonder why we fight Cover all their eyes Cover all their eyes Dark as night Dark as night Faith loyalty Faith loyalty Pick a side Pick a side In the war time In the springtime You go where you are told In cold death Or the hot heat We move fast and bold We must block all of their ports Because they won’t trade with us They must depend on us Ice in the springtime Eyes full of grime Fill them till they choke Fog up their dens And their lungs With all the sacred smoke Their eyes must not see our moves Cause they refuse to cross the stars Blockade all their homes And take all of their feed I don’t care what they seem to believe Make them stratified Cause it makes sense Doesn’t seem likely they’ll ever learn Never learn how to behave right Never learn how to follow us Never learn how to wreak havoc Never learn how to ask questions There you go Out for yourself out for yourself Hell follows Tell no one else tell no one else

Adrian: I don’t even know where I don’t even know why I’m alive Still alive Cannot place my own feet In front of one another No steady eyesight No steady eyesight Locked me up and thrown away the key I have died and gone to hell or at least so it seems Where is my mind it has escaped from me Is this eternity where I will eat and where I’ll sleep All because I couldn’t hold my tongue Back and forth mull over all what I have become City streets there’s nothing left there for me So I’ll just retrace the steps just rinse and repeat repeat Lasky: Some do not grieve Some do not sleep Some have no autonomy But still the eyes but still the lungs Breath and prosper to become A moment in time another day It’s not a lost cause When told to behave You’re not a lost cause Adrian: What is to be saved Lasky: You’re not a lost cause Adrian: Who is to be saved Lasky: And you’re not lost to me Adrian: Who am I supposed to Who is there for me Who is there for me Lasky: Alone but you’re not I’m here today These thoughts they put you in harms way Correlate the lines: birth and decay Your arms reach wide go and create Adrian: I don’t even know where I don’t even know why I’m alive Still alive Cannot place my own feet In front of one another No steady eyesight No steady eyesight

Adrian: In this wretched room I sleep My only savior is my dreams Textured socks and plastic cups The outside world seems so obscene I’m stuck here while it snows outside I walk the halls and plot my schemes But now I’m behind in these white walls One day I hope that I break free For this new normalcy I’ll wait I’ll wait for something more than this For a feeling that’s prescribed to attain just short of bliss But it won’t seem to subside how it plagues my consciousness These rats eat at me from inside while I’m stained with blood and piss I hope that I make it Out of here Alive I’ll retrace my steps a million times I hope that I see through All which I have seen To escape this shower is my dream These classes prove that I am whole These lessons teach me how to live With papers I just cut and fold All of these obtuse instructions Given to me like I’m mad And that I never learned to speak Something lost I cannot stab At both my swollen cheeks

Commander Alsaidi: Our ports Our seas This dichotomy Of us Vs them Don’t let them hear you scream Our blood Our bombs Take no sympathy That’s why We try To raise a prophecy What they get from us we will use to save them They believe they can prosper on their lonesome But we will swallow we will shelter we will access All their inlands all their power for the masses Order Obey Listen now or perish Scrape up The soil To birth our reactors Bury All your Obtuse reactions Open Their tracts For all that combat them What they get from us we will use to save them They believe they can prosper on their lonesome But we will swallow we will shelter we will access All their inlands all their power for the masses Commander McCarthy: Loyalty Loyalty give us loyalty Your lives are saved Come with me to the long peace Praise with me Elated to be a federation I know this all seems so new Loyalty Loyalty give us loyalty We come with gifts Come with guns To protect your compounds We don’t see This going another way Lay down your arms and join with us Our Guns Our bombs The drugs Will save and protect us all

Aerobatics 04:52
Adrian: Longing for Sweet death or a release To break me from All of that which I can’t see I still repeat What I’ve laid bare underneath Yet still replete Do or die yet I can’t seize All these hands That raise me up above the wreathes And still believe That I've become God and leave My own work To all of my property And I know me Or at least what I’ve come to see Lasky: I know there’s pain I know you’re hurt You can mend the wounds Bandage torn lesions Broken bones will bond Ripped sutures regrow You are Doing better than you know Trust me believe We are not lost There's still time to fix The world at all costs

about

The year is 2755. Captain Adrian Park has been admitted to the Nalbina Hospital psychiatric facility following the aftermath of the UGF Tailow crash. There, Adrian is undergoing intensive therapy for schizophrenia and suicidal ideation. With the help of Dr. Lasky, Adrian is finding new meaning to their life. Meanwhile, the occupation of the planet Xevium has gone underway. Commanders Alsaidi and McCarthy are planning to indoctrinate and drug the Xevians with a combination of religious brainwashing and the use of the drug Floria.

This album is inspired by my personal time in an inpatient psychiatric facility as well as the research of historians like Howard Zinn and Piero Gleijeses.
