Release Date: 2015
Record Label: Warner Brothers

Drones is out now!
 
From Matt: “To me, 'Drones' are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behaviour with no recourse.  The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones.  This album explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors."

  • Dead Inside Show

    Revere a million prayers
    And draw me into your holiness
    But there’s nothing there
    Light only shines from those who share

    Unleash a million drones
    Confine me, then erase me babe
    Do you have no soul
    It’s like it died long ago

    Your lips feel warm to the touch
    You can bring me back to life
    On the outside you’re ablaze and alive
    But you’re dead inside

    You’re free to touch the sky
    Whilst I am crushed and pulverised
    Because you need control
    Now I’m the one who’s letting go

    You like to give an inch
    Whilst I am giving infinity
    But now I’ve got nothing left
    You have no cares, and I’m bereft


    Your skin feels warm to caress
    I see magic in your eyes
    On the outside you’re ablaze and alive
    But you’re dead inside

    Feel me now
    Hold me please
    I need you to see who I am
    Open up to me
    Stop hiding from me
    It’s hurting babe
    Only you can stop the pain

    Don’t leave me out in the cold
    Don’t leave me out to die
    I gave you everything
    I can’t give you any more
    Now I’ve become just like you

    My lips feel warm to touch
    My words seem so alive
    My skin is warm to caress
    I’ll control and hypnotise
    You’ve taught me to lie without a trace
    And to kill with no remorse
    On the outside I’m the  greatest guy
    But now I’m dead inside

  • Mercy Show

    Help me, I’ve fallen on the inside
    I tried to change the game, I tried to infiltrate, but now I’m losing
    Men in cloaks, always seem to, run the show
    Save me from the, ghosts and shadows, before they eat my soul

    Mercy, Mercy,
    Show me mercy, from the powers that be
    Show me mercy, can someone rescue me

    Absent gods and silent tyranny, we’re going under,
    Hypnotised, by another puppeteer, and tell me why the
    Men in cloaks always have had to bring me down
    Running from the, ghosts and shadows
    the world just disavows

    Mercy, Mercy,
    Show me mercy from the powers that be
    Show me mercy, can someone rescue me

    Show me mercy, show me mercy please

    Help me I’ve fallen on the inside and all men in cloaks trying to devour my soul

    Show me mercy, from the powers that be
    Show me mercy, from the gutless and mean
    Show me mercy, from the killing machines
    Show me mercy, can someone rescue me

  • Reapers Show

    Home is becoming a killing field
    There’s a crosshair locked on my heart
    With no recourse
    And there’s no one behind the wheel
    Hellfire, you are wiping me out, killed by

    Drones
    Killed by

    You rule with lies and deceit
    Andthe
    world is on your side
    You’ve got the CIA babe
    And all you’ve done is brutalise

    War, war just moved up a gear
    I don’t think I can handle the truth
    I’m just a pawn
    And we’re all expendable
    Incidentally, electronically erased, by your

    Drones

  • The Handler Show

    You, were my oppressor
    And I, I have been programmed to obey

    Now, you are my handler
    And I, I will execute your demands

    Leave me alone, I must
    Disassociate from you

    Behold my trance formation, and you
    Are empowered to do as you please

    My mind, was lost in translation, and my heart,
    has become a cold and impassive machine

    Leave me alone, I must
    Disassociate from you

    I won’t let you control my feelings anymore
    I will no longer do as I am told
    I am no longer afraid to walk alone
    Let me go
    Let me be
    I’m escaping from your grip
    You will never own me again
     

  • [JFK] Show

    "We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly- knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced not praised."

  • Defector Show

    Free, yeah I am free from your inciting
    You can’t brainwash me
    You’ve got a problem
    Free, yeah I’m free, from society
    You can’t control me
    I’m a defector

    You think you're strong
    And you can't be broken
    But your empire is dissolving
    You thought, you thought I was weak
    But baby you got itwrong
    Look into my eyes
    I'm a defector

    Free, yeah I am free from your inciting
    You can’t brainwash me
    You’ve got a problem
    Free, yeah I’m free, from society
    You can’t control me
    I’m a defector

    Your blood is blue and your mind's turned green
    And your belly, is all yellow
    You believe, your throne is too high
    To be overthrown
    We’ll watch it get razed
    By a defector

    Free, yeah I am free from your inciting
    You can’t brainwash me
    You’ve got a problem
    Free, yeah I’m free, from society
    You can’t control me
    I’m a defector


    JFK continued: "We look for strength and assistance, confident that
    with your help, man will be what he was born to be; Free and independent."
     

  • Revolt Show

    How did we get in so much trouble?
    Getting out just seems impossible

    Oppression is persisting
    I can't fight this brain conditioning

    Our freedom's just a loan
    Run by machines and drones

    They've got us locked into their sights
    Soon they'll control what's left inside

    Don't try to hide it,
    Don't tell me it's not there

    You've got strength
    You've got soul
    You've felt pain
    You've felt love
    You can grow, You can grow,
    You can make this world what you want
    You can revolt
    You can revolt
    You can revolt

    Can you hear a distant thunder
    Taste earth's blood and hunger
    We live in a toxic jungle
    Truth is suppressed to mumbles
    They'll take away our home
    They’re just machines and drones

    Don’t try to fight it, don't tell me you can't see

    That you've got strength
    You've got soul
    You've felt pain
    You've felt love
    You can grow, You can grow,
    You can make this world what you want
    You can revolt
    You can revolt
    You can revolt

    I can feel your pain
    I can feel your confusion
    I can see you’re trapped in a maze
    Let’s find a way to escape

    You've got strength
    You've got soul
    You’re not afraid
    You’re not a drone
    You can grow, You can grow,
    You can make this world what you want
    You can revolt
    You can revolt
    You can revolt 

  • Aftermath Show

    War is all around
    I’m growing tired of fighting
    I’ve been drained, and I can’t hide it
    But I have strength for you
    You’re all that’s real anymore
    I am coming home now
    I need your comfort

    From this moment
    From this moment
    You'll never be alone
    We're bound together
    Now and forever
    The loneliness has gone

    States are crumbling
    And walls are rising high again
    It’s no place for the faint hearted
    But my heart is strong
    Because now I know where I belong
    It's you and I against the world
    We are free

    From this moment
    From this moment
    You'll never be alone
    We're bound together
    Now and forever
    The loneliness has gone

    We’ve gone against the tide
    All we have is each other now
    I am coming home now
    I need your comfort

  • The Globalist Show

    You were never truly loved, you have only been betrayed
    You were never truly nurtured, by churches or the state
    You were left unprotected to these wild and fragile lands
    But you can riseup
    like a god
    Arm yourself, you can be strong
    You can build a nuclear power
    Transform the earth to your desire
    Free your mind from false beliefs
    You will can be the commander in chief
    You can hide your true motives
    To dismantle and destroy
    Now you finally have the codes
    I am have given you the code

    10,9,8,7,6,5, 4, 3, 2, 1, fire

    There's no country left
    To love and cherish
    It's gone, it's gone for good
    It's you and me babe
    Survivors
    To hunt and gather memories
    Of the great nation we were

    There’s no countries left
    To fight and conquer
    I think I destroyed them all
    It's human nature
    The greatest hunter will survive alone
    With no one left to love

    There's no culture left
    To love and cherish
    It's gone, it's gone for good
    A trillion memories
    Lost in space and time for ever more
    I just wanted, I just needed to be loved
