about

The debut album from Industrial Rock act Deconbrio, Obsessions of a False Idol lashes out on the stamp-and-go styles of today’s entertainment industry. The album is portrayed from multiple angles: the entertainment industry (”Let’s feed the world our bullshit and watch our profits soar”), the consumers (”We all react to what they’re bringing back”), and the voice of reason (”Wake up. You have been lied to. This is a masquerade”).

Track Name: The Deceiver
When did we all become
Replicas of a lie
They said
Let's feed the world our bullshit
And watch our profits soar
Well I've seen this all
Over and over again
But it's a little different
Than before

Now you are hooked on something
That isn't you
No matter where you dig
You're just not breaking through
And if for a second you were something
Like before
Would you deny the deceiver
At least, try to ignore

Don't waste your breath
With apologies
No one's going to care
You work so hard
To be like them
Yet, you don't compare

Now you are hooked on something
That isn't you
No matter where you dig
You're just not breaking through
And if for a second you were something
Like before
Would you deny the deceiver
At least, try to ignore

Can you try to ignore
Track Name: Copycat
Now that I have your attention
(This) is beyond your comprehension
It was there for the taking
You left it open for the breaking
Now we are here to fix the perfect
And it's always worth it

Waking the dead
Let's do it again
It isn't the first
But, we're good at making it worse
It doesn't compare
But see if I care
I needed the hit
Doesn't matter what you think of it

Now don't you feel forgotten
We made your face so rotten
I'm sorry it doesn't thrill you
But, at least it didn't kill you

Waking the dead
Let's do it again
It isn't the first
But, we're good at making it worse
It doesn't compare
But see if I care
I needed the hit
Doesn't matter what you think of it

Look at me
I'm the prodigy
Of what you used to be
I'm inclined
To take what you've defined
And make it mine

Waking the dead
Let's do it again
It isn't the first
But, we're good at making it worse
It doesn't compare
But see if I care
I needed the hit
Doesn't matter what you think of it
Track Name: Masquerade
Slip into your new skin
Obsessing your disguise
Afraid of your scars
You've been around once or twice
Marking from your past
Cover stains upon your feet
Lost in misconception
Where hate and heavens meet

Wake up
You have been lied to
This is a masquerade

Hands are worn and pale
Atrophied and frail
But once behind your mask
You tell a different tale
Tell me your intentions
For the useless interventions
Covered in doubt - foot in your mouth
Or was it just my perception

Wake up
You have been lied to
This is a masquerade

If I could be what I wanted
I'd be a child's tear
You have no safety in numbers
Being alone and in fear
There's nothing left to fight for
Now I can disappear

Wake up
You have been lied to
This is a masquerade
Track Name: The Result of Negligence
Oh no - Something's wrong
We are not where we belong
What happened to the bright, big future
That we heard on the radio
Why are we still on the ground
Dragging along and fucking around
We were busy only dreaming of what
We all heard on the radio

This is the result of your negligence
This is the result of your negligence
Keep telling yourself it gets better
From here on out
This is the result of your negligence

You keep putting on faces
Like it changes who you were
You're still ugly on the inside
But they don't tell/sell you that on the radio
Warning - may cause nausea
Headaches, coma or death
I'm so glad I never listen
To what they say on the radio

This is the result of your negligence
This is the result of your negligence
Keep telling yourself it gets better
From here on out
Keep telling yourself it gets better
Until you start to fall apart

Calling all mannequins
Show me what you've got
(Nothing I haven't seen before)
I guess that's the price we pay
For living our lives on the radio
Being the best of someone else
So original
But, can we stop for a second
And kill the voice on the radio

This is the result of your negligence
This is the result of your negligence
Keep telling yourself it gets better
From here on out
Keep telling yourself it gets better
Until you start to fall apart
Track Name: Static
I've become what I hate the most
Suck it all dry and I've become the host
Just when I think I'm close enough
I'm a million miles away
And I'm happy where I stay

I have fallen for lies that I have never believed
Taken the bad with the good, and everything in between
I've been handed the worst - or so it would seem
Now the static is getting to me

I can't help but throw things away
Now I know, the bad piece was me
Nothing ever seemed to fit
And I have turned it all to shit
Nothing ever seemed to fit
And I have turned it all to shit

I have fallen for lies that I have never believed
Taken the bad with the good, and everything in between
I've been handed the worst - or so it would seem
Now the static is getting to me

Say goodbye to what used to be
This will never be the same

I have fallen for lies that I have never believed
Taken the bad with the good, and everything in between
I've been handed the worst - or so it would seem
Now the static is getting to me
Track Name: Obsessions
This has gone too far from our control
We've grown accustomed to your facade
Covered in plastic, but lacking a soul
You've got some nerve thinking that you can play god

Drastic times, they call for drastic measures
Playing offense at your own game
Can you feel the ground beneath you rupture
Time is ticking for your fifteen minutes of fame

Since when do we find obsessions
To be in our best intentions

I never thought I'd see the day
Where I would - and I could
Fall for being fucked
A little bit is allowed to stay
But, it's preparing to self-destruct

Since when do we find obsessions
To be in our best intentions

I guess you get what you earn
I gave a shit
That's what I get in return

Since when do we find obsessions
To be in our best intentions
Track Name: The Mistake We Embrace
They want us clean-shaved
Well-behaved
They want us slaves to the music
We'll never be what we want to be
And it's making me sick

We all react to what they're bringing back
It's a distraction from the music
The more we listen
The more we're fooled
The more we forget the gimmick
Track Name: From Here
Is this all a dream
Is this all a hallucination
Can you make it seem
Like there's no sign of devastation
Where do we go from here
Don't let it disappear

Kill the distance
Am I aware
This existence of hope is
Fairly an instance that can't compare
But my resistance will still be there

Is this all a dream
Is this all a hallucination
Can you make it seem
Like there's no sign of devastation
Where do we go from here
Don't let it disappear

Dare I say this
As if you care
I never feel the same
And that's not fair
It's a price I pay
And I'm not scared
There's some things you just
Can't repair

Is this all a dream
Is this all a hallucination
Can you make it seem
Like there's no sign of devastation

Tell me what I have to do
Is there room for me and you
Track Name: A Vicious Reality
Storm clouds
Make their way
The second the smoke clears
I see the horizon
Standing vertical
It's exactly how I feared

Time well wasted, I must say
Sure as hell wouldn't have it any other way
And to all the people who succeeded
In bringing me down
I've got just one thing left to say

This is my last confession
Censored for your protection
I want to make amends
Then do it all again

If I had the chance
I wouldn't change it
For the world

This is my last confession
Censored for your protection
I want to make amends
Then do it all again

I wish
I could
Do it all again
Track Name: Enemy
You'd like to think that I have given up
I'd like to see you try
You'd like to think that I'm running away
Well -- so long, farewell, goodbye

Well, I've had enough
I see through your bluff
And I'll raise you everything
That you have grown to love
I see through the mask
I don't think you'll last
With your so-called "honesty"
And the lack thereof

I can't be this enemy
You hoped I'd become
I can't fill the void to make you
Feel more welcome
The last thing I had hoped to be
Was broken and numb
But I think I am ready for
Whatever may come
