lyrics

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
