Track Name: Consciousness of Freedom
consciousness of freedom

dialectic
of master and slave
history's
periodic wave

ultimate will
its your fate
bowing down
to the father state

those who want to love
must serve
those who want freedom
must die
Track Name: Every Parting, a Foretaste of Death
every parting, a foretaste of death

a life without pain
has no fucking meaning
change alone is eternal
perpetual, immortal

escape the nagging of your will
swallow death's soothing pill

vulgar urge
incapable of abstaining
religion
a masterpiece in animal training
Track Name: Beyond Good and Evil
beyond good and evil

is
man
god's
mistake?
or is god one of man's?

yes

regarding life
the wisest have all judged alike
infinitely worthless

gaze long at the abyss
and it gazes back into you
bottomless will to power
nihilistic virtue
Track Name: A Desire for Desires
a desire for desires

church, state
let them die
true god
lives in my
heart

understand only through love

if you want to change the world
first change yourself

wake your mind
Track Name: Critique of Pure Reason
critique of pure reason

a priori, space and time
simply mirrors of your mind

morality is justified
tacit assumptions are thought crimes
but go ahead, live the lie
Track Name: Opium of the Masses
opium of the masses

self alienation
brutal exploitation
of
man
by the invisible hand
corporate battle plan

iron fist of labor
smashing monied foes
worker's bloody saber
seeking princes to depose

enslavement?
no

history repeats
first as tragedy
second as the blackest comedy
Track Name: No Hope Unmingled with Fear
no hope unmingled with fear

do not weep
reason free
understand

peace is not the absence of war

true conception of the infinite

break your bonds
