Is there a tendril of hope, onto which we can
grope? You’re a victim of a system given a
ration of rope.
Now watch your back, as your neighbour is
spying, and your best mate is watching, so
you’ll want to give up trying.
A billion nameless souls, with a crime to
each face, but a billion lost ideals, that are
smothered in space.
If all you get from hope, is a vision of
blue, then you’ll want to die right here, and
pretend it was true.
Your thoughts are everyone’s to share,
everyone’s to screen, everyone’s to deny.
Pre-determined and pre-destined to fail, your
mind is the state’s, and the state is unkind.
Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate-crime hate-crime...
It seems every time you try to open the door,
there’s a thousand
perished souls who had tried it before.
A stab in the back, from a voice in the pack,
even your mother, whispers lies to another.
Subjugated to a level conformed, inhale the
state ideal, and exhale all that’s real.
Crushed to frustration, you’ve resorted to
crime, now your destiny’s ours, until the end
of your time.

FLA is a SONIC ELECTRONIC BULLDOZER. That's about the most concise way I can describe how this album feels to me.
'Alone' is hands down my top pick here, although I do find 'Rubber Tube Gag' sticking in my brain a lot, too.
My one criticism (constructive of course) is that sometimes the lyrics feel underinspired, but it's not a big issue in the grander context of this otherwise excellent album. This one definitely grows on you, too. Good stuff, and solidly recommended.
Long live FLA! Benjamin Crockett
