    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The New York and Boston-based rock power trio fearlessly pursue the synthesis of the musical idioms that inspire them, veering from hip-hop to metal, prog to house, pensive indie-rock to apocalyptic dub... and yet somehow reflect a unified musical vision.

lyrics

an opiate totem, in city center
the villagers lined up, look what they've done to us
scripted pre-planned, engineered and contrived
why can't they see puppet strings in the sky

feels like lemmings raining all around
build it they will come and give it legs
make it real now, read all about
it's written, and so it is

so glaringly obvious where does the money end up
pavement petroleum the beast is now belly up
shifting the gears of popular thought
easy to sway with the studies they've bought
scripted pre-planned, engineered and contrived
they know how you work from they data they mined
rumbling diesel blackens the sky
the townsfolk are lapping up every headline

feels like lemmings raining all around
build it they will come and give it legs
make it real now, read all about
it's written, and so it is
