Track Name: The Genesis Construct
slip into the mask, intrinsic roads exposed
pools of glass are closed, in still pose
insert emotion, this tremor in time
unique for persecution as we rise

try to make a connection, pierce shadows binding light
reach the genesis within tonight
feasting deep in redacted stasis states of entropy
release, complete, isolation obsolete

a presentation of the effigious lines, lifting curtains to begin again
relegate concealment to mobs with fabric flames
the life inside is real enough to win

try to make a connection, pierce shadows binding light
reach the genesis within tonight
feasting deep in redacted stasis states of entropy
release, complete, isolation obsolete

chemistry rejected and all rights have been assigned
death to natural progression of one’s kind
denying the elemental, system isn’t recognized
rejecting existence, we must reassemble this plan into whole!

unbalancing us all with this waste of energy
the ripples from the weight of separation anxiety
quick to feed the illusion with civil intrusion
transform for revolution for foundations to survive
embrace the nexus where combinations unify
our life will not be denied

try to make a connection, pierce shadows binding light
reach the genesis within tonight
feasting deep in redacted stasis states of entropy
release, complete, isolation obsolete
Track Name: Little Dark Star
finally gone, they think for now
but in another light you’d be sound
little dark star, bring night to light
absorbing all, demanding none
a true knight

they can’t pull away from you
drawn deep into their doom, they think, they’re gone for good
but converted to evolve
there is light within, they will find it then
what they think you lack, you have, you foster for them

you’re the disaster of their cage
never let them fade away
they’ll stay, the cure is in your core
in dawn’s light, revealed gravitas beyond the sun n’ still
massive reputation unfairly gotten

never credit to your name, reflecting all you gave
but you go on and on devoted to the brave
hope vibrant, not for show
but some still see, see it glow and they know

they can’t pull away from you
drawn deep into their doom, they think, they’re gone for good
but converted to evolve
there is light within, they will find it then
what they think you lack, you have, you foster for them

they want to crack your code
to file you (defile you, label, sort, identify, reduce)
to be your controllers
forever unintentionally confusing those within your cosmos
refuse to comply, refuse to live a lie
ingest, invest in you, your ally

they’ll call you black hole, even after all they stole
they cannot let you claim what’s rightfully yours
stay true, muse
galaxies are blooming behind you
you are brighter than, truer than

they can’t pull away from you
drawn deep into their doom, they think, they’re gone for good
but converted to evolve
there is light within, they will find it then
what they think you lack, you have, you foster for them
Track Name: Perpetual Memory
the deadliest one had no gun
fear injection, frayed connection
time enough for troubled dreams
it seems eternity reveals all things

what do you fear when you live forever?
only the limits of your inner strength
the threat of anything good being snuffed out, caged, imprisoned
alone
defenses aligned, in the dawn of another’s sun

you are an asset, they’ll praise you, support you
condemn any who might threaten to expose you, de-throne you
condemn the witch, the brave,
the truth your slave
any one makes you clean, your breath you keep

hero or villain?
strategic perfection, logic encapsulated
partitioned data, corrupted basis
encased inside
your violent methods applied as remedy
to sustain your perpetual memory

tasting fire on autumn leaves
residual lives cast down
indulge to the last, while they burn
blindfolding fates, each in turn

violence
still one does business with
spends time with you
if you were a stranger, they’d hang you

changing history with words
pictures with brush
your sword and blood
with coin and trust
muting sensors while accepting
invitations into their homes
oh, they’ll never know

hero or villain?
strategic perfection, logic encapsulated
partitioned data, corrupted basis
encased inside
your violent methods applied as remedy
to sustain your perpetual memory

eyes too fast, hearts too slow, pride too strong
dominus aeternitas
master of infinity, master of none
Track Name: Siren's Call
it’s a long way up, a short way down
keeps your lips shut, you’ll never be the one to drown
p’seidon will guide you

pawns placed on the front line
masterpiece and destruction
hidden well behind construction
innocents slaved for grand design
dreams embodied meticulously
hides behind his sightless army
corruption’s never seen
encore! rumor falls the guillotine

drifting empires burn so clear
yet fires consume only the insincere
sparing no drop to save what you should
you have oceans vast, and scapegoats of wood

fury unleashed on endeavors of independence

he’d command a truce, but he thinks he’ll lose
throw the tar to sharks, while his fear bleeds through
his true friendship’s never meant
take in water, stay his ship’s descent
lifeline unextended, captain prose concealing sin

carry his anchor, walking depths below, no one knows
watch his changing light, theirs stays true
they’ll take everything and move on without you

inserting himself into all they create
it will haunt him when all is taken
the core was never his alone
it belonged to those who breath love, who love more

drifting empires burn so clear
yet fires consume only the insincere
sparing no drop to save what you should
you have oceans vast, and scapegoats of wood

he wants a siren to call on, but not a siren to call on him
intentions de-masked
oh captain, my…
Track Name: Hypogeum
you keep tearing down what so many gave
building up with their remains (your willful ignorance is not innocence)
doesn’t matter how many lives you fake, there will still be one you cannot save
(end your charade, let the truth persuade)

hypogeum, all the weak will live a lie, and never die another’s death
even though survival’s inevitable
tension will be soothed as truth becomes your fuel, nothing can stop you
become everything we need, come let it out

odd skins deterring, so kings of straw they spin with fool’s gold
not knowing why they’re poor
making claims to things that came before, so they keep the status quo
over-protection’s just infection coming through the door!

hypogeum, all the weak will live a lie, and never die another’s death
even though survival’s inevitable
tension will be soothed as truth becomes your fuel, nothing can stop you
become everything we need, come let it out

truth condemned for caging, fingers pointing, raging
thrashing, gasping – tie the noose, yet true words would set us loose
taboo is taboo, burn the book of life, it knows too much, it shows too much
cannot define it, revile it, trip the wire, move us through

hypogeum, all the weak will live a lie, and never die another’s death
even though survival’s inevitable
tension will be soothed as truth becomes your fuel, nothing can stop you
become everything we need, come let it out

come on, step into someone else’s shoes
see a fraction of your world, you have nothing to lose
just set your fear aside, see the lies with open eyes
thrill’s within the full ride, come get your dose of real life
Track Name: Protocol
armor marked and switched on
justice now a blur beneath the orders of the law
my eyes i shield, as i watch the lines redrawn in
digital dust blowing over battlefields
split blood out from between my teeth
this archaic mod decays, the wires cut beneath
they’re transferring signals via absentee
reclaim control, before they reset me

further from the truth, closer to my doom
sorted orders set to execute
i can’t close the loop, my addendum must resume
always running out of time, i must endure

drugs for pain, the valves are jammed again
advancing cold steps, remnants over circuits stained
star moves overhead, though static spans my sky
persistent shadows lie, can’t tell day from night

visceral revision, adapting to the dark
artificial light confused for lifespark
they sound alarms,and mine respond
cascading triggers turn the system on

further from the truth, closer to my doom
sorted orders set to execute
i can’t close the loop, my addendum must resume
always running out of time, i must endure

there were so many more before the fated fall
my compatriots of countless wars, they’ve turned off almost all

chrome and silicone, lying underneath my skin
humanity’s nearly gone, can’t remember where i’ve been

further from the truth, closer to my doom
sorted orders set to execute
i can’t close the loop, my addendum must resume
always running out of time, i must endure
Track Name: All Souls Day
time inside
paper boats will be their guide, on copper streams
bled free from sedimental veins
turn the world along the line, long wire spoken through
in hopes we’re heard too

burning pages as we wake
stringing chants like bellflowers round the gate
laying bare-graved the array, sunken hands sew fractures
we dream of all souls day

fragile bones dance in golden fields of gray
much infused to death, but they’ve none to lose
revels choose a lighter gift, though there’s plenty left
to the living still with breath

stones approach, locking hands to summon all
dissolving fictional in saturated pacts
diffuse the world to concentrate
with their flood of keys to unlock the gate

burning pages as we wake
stringing chants like bellflowers round the gate
laying bare-graved the array, sunken hands sew fractures
we dream of all souls day

touching even now
your past and future, it will all go on long after you’re gone
trailing water lamps to hold on to
catching firelight to pull you through
you cannot tell them, you are fifteen of seven
or searing wind will come too soon

burning pages as we wake
stringing chants like bellflowers round the gate
laying bare-graved the array, sunken hands sew fractures
we dream of all souls day
Track Name: With Me
look at me, i’m underwater and it’s beautiful
wanna join me?
yes you do
shed your skin, and slip into

in our old world, i’ll take you down with me
i’ll take you down, because i love you

melt my eyes, see what’s inside
outside reflections lead you in
come prepared, don’t be scared
tides roll in and out
all things learn, and i transform

you can breath in here
believe me, you can dream me

in our old world, i’ll take you down with me
i’ll take you down, because i love you

in this old world
i’ll take you…take you down
i’ll take you down with me
down, down
Track Name: Void Indulgent
all, is all. you, of you. without, with all. embrace, into

eyes cannot see you, mind can’t conceive you, always in peripheral
dearest vespertine

starlight in your eyes, crawl across the spacial shores
trailing comets for their strife, let slip the meteorites
down upon the thralls, building toward your plane
they’ll never fill
you are in between, forever in the void

all, is all. you, of you. without, with all. embrace, into

serum null of consequence, threads of dreams wound round
flange locks behind the line
dearest vespertine

starlight in your eyes, crawl across the spacial shores
trailing comets for their strife, let slip the meteorites
down upon the thralls, building toward your plane
they’ll never fill
you are in between, forever in the void

astra inclinant, sed non obligant
the stars incline us, they do not bind us

climbing into, through minds
disaster tastes as halcyon
they call, fleeing, pining
your cards of court, are missing heads
your tarot fashioned from what’s fed
the nightcalls brought to life at whim
you never call it sin, but then…

starlight in your eyes, crawl across the spacial shores
trailing comets for their strife, let slip the meteorites
down upon the thralls, building toward your plane
they’ll never fill
you are in between, forever in the void
Track Name: Overdrive
cold to the touch,such a rush
jettison, soaring on
chemical cityways, remotes retain
neon smoke on fire, where deckers stray

selling time, echelons in overdrive
fixing glitches now a runner’s crime
electric storms siphoned into every home
every device and vessel feeding
rise again new rome

echo mirage is chambered
screen the field filled with cellular debris
in vocal dreams over lightwave screams
we do what we can, we’re only machines

everything is everyone’s any time we want
we’ve become terminal undone
lifelines measured in productivity
their different shapes and heat all the same to me

echo mirage is chambered
screen the field filled with cellular debris
in vocal dreams over lightwave screams
we do what we can, we’re only machines

world-wide blackouts
the underground on the surface now, skinned
over the net wherein

body, traffic lines shunting dissolution to solution
we are the living virus, last resorts are first within

echo mirage is chambered
screen the field filled with cellular debris
in vocal dreams over lightwave screams
we do what we can, we’re only machines
