With a creation spanning two and a half years, 4 suburbs and 3 Subway stores, Containment Failure is finally complete!

Track Name: Rising From The Flames
It's time for us to take action
It's time to start a reaction
About time we gained some traction
Rising From The Flames

Breaking forth in exclamation
Working towards eradication
Of black dust that thwarts creation
Rising From The Flames

Bringing noise from all directions
Here to fuck with your perceptions
Witnessing our resurrection
Rising From The Flames

I've had a premonition
Now we've got the ammunition
Time to lose our inhibitions
Rising From The Flames

Bringing noise from all directions
Here to fuck with your perceptions
Witnessing our resurrection
Rising From The Flames

Bringing noise from all directions
Here to fuck with your perceptions
Witnessing our resurrection
Rising From The Flames
Track Name: Kurodust
It looked like a normal shipping container
But the sign on the door said 'Ready To Rock'
A homemade studio of scavenged equipment
Kurodust played on, no matter what

The dust from the walls shook down as they rocked
The music they played from their hearts
Unknown to them the black dust they inhaled
Had been touched by the hand of the dark

They started to change but they continued to play
The dust sunk in and altered their DNA
Before long they realised the powers they'd gained
Had come from the music that flowed through their veins

Birthed in a big green shipping container
Kurodust!
The heavy metal band infused with super rock powers
Kurodust!
Charged by fate to challenge the darkness
Kurodust!
Watch out! Watch out! Here comes Kurodust!
Watch out! Watch out! Here comes Kurodust!

Three musicians against the darkness
With powers to help them annihilate

The very matter of the universe
Obeys when Trevor plays his bass

Rob and his axe are never apart
And his solos will literally melt off your cock

And when Ben tells you to 'Stand The Fuck Up'
You'll have no choice but to stand up and rock!

Now Kurodust goes forth to focus their powers
They must fight the darkness or the black dust consumes
They come from evil but the rock is what guides them
Playing heavy metal keeps them strong, brave and true

Birthed in a big green shipping container
Kurodust!
The heavy metal band infused with super rock powers
Kurodust!
Charged by fate to challenge the darkness
Kurodust!
Watch out! Watch out! Here comes Kurodust!
Watch out! Watch out! Here comes Kurodust!

Watch out! Watch out! Watch out! Watch out! Watch out! Watch out! Here comes Kurodust!
Track Name: Deconstruct
Take a look around, see how the world is changing
Do you think the world will just keep on believing your lies?
The power that you've used abused and flaunted is fading
As the people wrestle back complete control of their minds!

This book! This fucking book you say should be our guiding light
Is just a way for you to justify your subtle little crimes
But now the people have the power to communicate the truth
Your time is running out and soon you'll just be left behind

We see through your lies

You can tell me that the crazy ones don't represent the whole
But it's the ignorance you favour lets those crazies thrive
And while you may choose the nice bits from your holy book of fiction
There are those who like the bits that say that 'Homos Must Die!'

And sure, everybody deserves freedom of speech
But when that freedom to speak becomes blood on the streets
You turn a blind eye to the facts and just let history repeat
But it's time to see the words you preach have become obsolete

We're opening our eyes

This is not a war
This is not your judgement day
Just incidental memocide
For truth to live, the lies must die

In the past you've kept the children from confronting your hypocrisy
Indoctrinating values until they're too entrenched to change
But now the reins have been forsaken, as the age of information
Stops the abuse and gives their minds some room to find their own way

You no longer mystify

Once they see the other side of this unstable faith equation
Once they get a proper education, learn the facts about creation
Learn to make their own informed and logical evaluation
We'll finally see a true and great enlightened generation

The truth you vilify
These lies you deify

This is not a war
This is not your judgement day
Just incidental memocide
For truth to live, the lies must die
Track Name: Doll In The Dust
Nightware, wake up! Just a bad dream, child
Out of bed now find your way by the moonlight
Through the darkness, hold your breath and keep on moving
Time to run and find protection in your Daddy's loving arms

Nightmare, Daddy? Another bad dream, child
Not sure what you're seeing, you can't look away
This is the nightmare from which you will never wake
You will never see your Daddy the same way

A vision so horrid it slices your heart
The wound isn't fatal but it leaves its mark
Black dust condenses and darkness is borne
The first scar of many on your heart is forged

A childhood ends in the blink of an eye
The real world floods in and complicates your life
Denied by the dust of not being afraid
The damage is done and the scars never fade

Drop that doll in the dust
You're a child no more
Innocence all but lost
You're a child no more

The dust makes it hard but now you have your choice
Let it consume you or raise up your voice
Learn from the scars and face up to the world
Or you'll be forever your Daddy's little girl

Abuse breeds abuse
breeds abuse
breeds abuse
breed abuse
breeds abuse
breeds abuse
breeds abuse

Drop that doll in the dust
You're a child no more
Innocence all but lost
You're a child no more
Track Name: Five Faced Fist
The artist came into the town, completely unaware
That this would be the town where he would die
Hatsumi left her father's house, to seek the local fare
But her heart was stirred when she met the artist's eyes

For days the artist and Hatsumi never were apart
Hidden from her father's watchful eyes
He told her that they'd run away, he'd save her from her path
But all the words the artist spoke were lies

The artist tried, in the dead of night, to hurry out of town
His mind already fixed on things to come
Hatsumi woke and realised the artist broke his vow
She ran, distraught, into her father's arms

He must turn to face
He must turn to face
He must turn to face
The Five Faced Fist

Daughter, dry your tears
My daughter, now your daddy's here
Daughter, this man will get what's due
My Five Faced Fist know what to do

He must turn to face
He must turn to face
He must turn to face
The Five Faced Fist

The artist fled through empty streets, as fast as he could flee
The Five Faced Fist expertly tracked him down
They brought him to the palace where he dropped upon his knees
And begged them that some mercy could be found

Her father was a ruthless man, but even he could see
His daughter loved this man despite his crime
Hatsumi stood, her tears now dry, and made her last demand
"You must stay with me until the end of time"

He must turn to face
He must turn to face
He must turn to face
The Five Faced Fist
Track Name: Technicality
I was 25, now I'm 45
What happened to my scene?
The sex, the drugs, and on the dole
Livin' live carefree

You got me
You got me
You got me
On a technicality

I was 25, now I'm 45
Livin' the suburban dream
Not quite young but not yet old
What happened in between

You got me
You got me
You got me
On a technicality

The morning after, you were still asleep, my plan was just to up and leave
I quickly pulled on all my clothes, but just as I was going to flee

You rolled over, breathing deep, your lips moved as if in a dream
You said my name, loud and clear, and something jumped inside of me

I undressed and laid back down, amazed that I had failed to see
That you had grabbed my heart on nothing but a technicality

You got me
You got me
You got me
On a technicality

No regrets
No regrets
No regrets
No regrets

You got me
You got me
You got me
On a technicality
Track Name: Hypnotica
Feeling lonely and betrayed
Your pain inside never seems to go away
I can make you feel better
Take a seat inside

Look into my eyes
Let my voice soothe your pain
I will be your guide
Feel your sorrow slip away

Tell me what makes you afraid
I will help you find a place inside where you feel safe
Let everything disappear
Let me be your world

Look into my eyes
Let my voice embrace your pain
I will hypnotise
Feel your power slip away
You'll obey each word I say

Feeling lonely and betrayed
Your pain inside never seems to go away
I can make you feel better
Take a seat inside

Look into my eyes
Now my voice controls your pain
I will say goodbye
Feel your memory slip away
But remember what I say
You'll be back another day
Track Name: Standing Waiting
Every morning is the same, when I open my eyes
The memory that quickly fades from my mind
Under dark clouds I walk to watch the trains, every day
Since you ran away and left this place behind
You didn't know what it was you wanted to find
But it wasn't here, and it wasn't me, so now I stand and wait

At 6am the morning rush blows through, the usual crew
I watch the crowd for the face that I once knew
Not here yet
I light up another cigarette
The glow reflecting in the 6:15 express
I'm waiting for my girl to step

Off the train
Off the train
Off the train
Off the train

Standing, waiting for the train that never comes
Standing, waiting while the world is moving on
Waiting for the future that we never had
You said you'd be back
So I'm still standing waiting here

As the day's sun climbs, the clouds subside, cigarette butts grow high
Women and men pass by, their eyes aren't kind, their dirty words implied
But it's no crime, they can live their lives, and keep judging mine
So I don't mind, they just don't know why I spend my time

Standing, waiting for the train that never comes
Standing, waiting while the world is moving on
Waiting for the future that we never had
You said you'd be back
So I'm still standing waiting here

In my heart I know
In my heart I know
In my heart I know
In my heart I know

Every morning is the same when I open my eyes
Her memory that quickly jumps to my mind
That look on her face I won't forget
I know today my girl will step

Off the train
Off the train
Off the train
Off the train

Standing, waiting for the train that never comes
Standing, waiting while this fucking world just keeps on moving on
Waiting for the future that we never had
You said you'd be back
So I'm still standing waiting here

Tonight there's a party tonight

Yeah, we've partied here before and we'll party again
There's nothing I like more than hanging out with my friends
Classic heavy metal we've been playing for years
Goes down smooth with a nice cold beer
Or a litre of Coke mixed with a shitload of scotch
Rob's special blend I'll take whatever you got
Forget about tomorrow it's not here yet
I don't care about the hangover that I haven't met

Tonight there's a party tonight
Tonight there's a party tonight
Party
Party
Tonight there's a party tonight

You gotta fight for your right
Tonight I'm going to rock you tonight
You gotta fight for your right
Tonight there's a party tonight
Track Name: Predictive Text
The voyage of the burning light
Struck down on the fourteenth day
Fallen stars devour the night
Seven men will lead the way

A humiliated hero
Breaks his fall on shattered stone
The world will see his sunken shadow
He will be forced to walk alone

I see the light
And it burns my eyes
My heart says truth
My mind says lies

Golden lightning strikes the source
Blood is spilled and bodies fall
The thread of silver runs it's course
When followers take up the call

The dust is slowed but still it moves
Three hearts beat and run in time
Hope and power is renewed
The dust will break and sun will shine

I see the light
And it burns my eyes
My heart says truth
My mind says

Broken images bleeding into my brain
They're fucking driving me insane
A hundred million permutations
of a world dying in flames
Nothing makes sense through all the pain
This feels like more than I can take
Nothing makes sense through all the pain
This feels like more than I can take

As the arches break and fall
and the heaving bridge unwinds
The demon boy hearkens the call
and begins his final climb

The many limbs of Father Time
scream forth and serve up mortal pain
One blast of white makes him benign
Until the hands swing round again

I see the light
And it burns my eyes
My heart says truth
My mind says

Broken images bleeding into my brain
They're fucking driving me insane

I see the light
And it burns my eyes
My heart says truth
My mind says lies
