    So, my CD of The Crucible arrived today, and it's absolutely great (of course). But, to my dismay, no lyrics is printed on the sleeves, and there is no booklet. Is it the same for the vynil version? Or does anyone have the "official" lyrics to the songs? I don't trust too much online sources like genius, they tend to make silly mistakes.

    PSYCHOTZAR

    it’s not paranoia, we all choose what to believe
    if you don’t understand it, you’re easy to deceive
    we pick our stories, no two tales are same
    follow the money,
    ignore the smoke, but look out for the flame

    cop a feel
    make a deal
    shit is all too real

    put your decency in storage or run it by the lord
    it’s not a system, it’s a funny game where lies are ignored
    I’ve got this anger but I don’t know what to do
    it’s not paranoia when it turns out to be true

    cop a feel
    make a deal
    now it’s all too real

    when truth is of no consequence
    learning’s trumped by sheer pretense

    when greed, deceit and vanity meets
    watch your back and count your teeth

    vanity before the fall, face first smack into the wall
    you don’t care,
    but will what still remains ever be rebuilt again?

    is this the point the future changed
    and a new world order arranged?
    who will pick up what you have gone and dropped?
    will he succeed where you have flopped?

    LUX AETERNA

    we die alone
    we are sentient then we’re bone
    numbers and a name on a gravestone

    it ends today
    take the pain away
    there’s nothing left for anyone to say

    the end is grey, an emptiness
    that allows our grief to coalesce
    and makes the sorrow harder to suppress

    we live our lives, we sweat and toil
    then shuffle off this mortal coil
    and leave our worn out flesh beneath the soil

    but when we go we are released
    our disagreement all appeased
    we’re memories just floating on the breeze
    and hopefully our souls are all at peace

    love me and set me free, I’m all I will ever be,
    I’m only me

    only now and only here
    no five-year plan and no career
    strip the noise away and make it clear

    only this and nothing more
    a multiverse still left to explore
    the big release will open up the door
    and take away the pain forevermore

    universal now
    not you, but a part of all
    please take a bow

    love me and set me free, I’m all I will ever be,
    I’m only me

    eternal light
    pure and clear and bright
    to light our way and help us through the night

    it ends today
    take the pain away
    there’s nothing left for anyone to say

    love me and set me free, I’m all I will ever be,
    I’m only me

    THE CRUCIBLE

    in the hours before the fire rained down
    and turned the evening into day,
    all was quiet, all was so serene
    and all our thoughts were far away
    with our loved ones, with our families,
    a future in a better world
    with the hope that this would all make sense
    our hearts jumped when the flags unfurled
    not a breeze, not a breath, not a sigh
    all so tense, all so scared, all stand-by

    we were young immortal patriots
    proudly marching off to war
    in our mind’s eye we were heroes all,
    we couldn’t see what lay in store
    we all saw ourselves on battlefields
    proud, with tombstones in our eyes
    not in this muddy hell of hopelessness
    pawns just waiting ‘round to die
    not a breeze, not a breath, not a sigh
    all so tense, all so scared, all stand-by

    what a waste, what an awful aftertaste: a travesty embraced
    soldiers cry but still wait around to die, believers in the biggest lie

    the never-ending awe-inspiring endless nameless grind
    the smell, the mud, the hope you never thought you’d have to find
    the endless drone of shelling every day and every night
    and knowing only more wrong ever could make this be right

    you keep your head down
    and pray to god and hope he hears your voice
    through drumfire roaring
    that makes it feel like your head will explode
    you see your brother disintegrate and rot before your eyes
    you dream of home and you wish you were back there all safe and dry

    the barrage it left us deaf and blind,
    I never heard the whistle blow
    but I followed where the others lead,
    alive with patriotic glow
    in a dream machine guns opened up
    mowing like the devil’s scythe
    I saw my peers, my generation fall
    in that mud I watched them die
    not a breeze, not a breath, just a sigh
    all so tense, all so scared, all would die
    to hope, to pray, to wait around to die …

    no breeze, no life, no breath,
    all gone, all gone, all dead

    The official lyrics are indeed printed in the cover of the vinyl version. I have nothing better to do right now so I'll type them out for you and anyone else.

    it's not paranoia, we all choose what to believe
    if you don't understand it, you're easy to deceive
    we pick our stories, no two tales are the same
    follow the money,
    ignore the smoke, but look out for the flame

    cop a feel
    make a deal
    shit is all too real

    put your decency in storage or run it by the lord
    it's not a system, it's a funny game where lies are ignored
    i've got this anger but I don't know what to do
    it's not paranoia when it turns out to be true

    cop a feel
    make a deal
    now it's all too real

    when truth is of no consequence
    learning's trumped by sheer pretense

    when greed, deceit and vanity meets

    vanity before the fall, face first smack into the wall

    but will what still remains ever be rebuilt again?

    is this the point the future changed
    and a new world order arranged?
    who will pick up what you've gone and dropped?
    will he succeed where you have flopped?

    I'll type out The Crucible later - it's long and has a lot of words!

    I really appreciate the effort of keying in the lyrics. Thank you! I don't know if this has been mentioned already, but reading the lyrics to Psychotzar makes me think this song is about Donald Trump. It doesn't seem ambiguous in any way. I love it.
