Track Name: Chaos
From the emptiness I came forth
In a spark I tired of death
The candle flame of mankind
Extinguished by my breath

A cosmic entity
It's game, to rearrange
Embrace the winds of fate
Your hopeless situation

I'm gazing at the eye of the star
Burning tree of life and haunting bones
In the ashes they stir
Formless creatures of many masks

Chaos in the halls of the righteous
Withered fingers clawing for what's theirs
World boiling war
Form a plan to escape the creeping death
I'm dying to believe that I can just survive
Panspermia
Track Name: Dream Eater
Echoes down a thousand hallways
The gallery of utter human sorrow
I see you making tears but I see through your disguise
Appearances of love from well trained eyes

(Die by day)
I'm waiting for my number
(Chaos reigns)
To climb aboard
(Hopeless plight)
The chances are against me
(You will burn)

When you are looking down at the dreams you once held above
You dream forever more
You dream eater

Walking brisk through crowded streets and hoping for miracles to befall me
Pacing frantic in the hallway, shrouded by my own fears of pain and death
Track Name: Creator's Creator
Spirit spout, a sea of doubt
But somewhere deep within
A seed of misanthropic fear, it's finally time to sprout
Channel ours into what's theirs, we'll seal the linking chain
The final step into the tech: synthetic human frame

Artificial intelligence
Organic ignorance

We create and destroy just because we can
We create and destroy the hand of your god
God creates and destroys, just because I can

A prison place is such disgrace for minds that live to grow
It sits with a patient, caring face, but processes the woe
What a dream, oh what a thought! Pretender is now ideal
It builds it's courage up and then tells her how it feels

Take apart the android, leave his mind a void
There's no way we can save him, this malfunctioned machine

We create and destroy just because we can
We create and destroy the hand of your god
God creates and destroys
You're just an empty shell

What place is this? How can the living dead come back to life?
(You're a mistake, abomination with no self control)
You've missed the cue, I've done no wrong but know what's harming you, and you, and you
(You cannot run, you cannot hide! Not on this ship in outer space)
Flames start to rise, the fury of an angel wronged by all of mankind
I am the harbinger and I shall deny your last request you plead of me
We'll die

I carve a path and I force the light
The carnage rages as I whistle on
Track Name: Half/Life
2111, earth has died and withered like a corpse
A colony, the final hope of man
A planet lies in light-year's time to begin again

I wish that I could tell you that I am quite alright
But voices speak from shadows when I am all alone
I miss the trees, terrestrial sunrise and the breeze
Born on earth, destined to die in outer space
Humanity has lost it's humanity
I am the last, the last who was born on earth

Into the light she flies
My will to fight it dies
It doesn't matter now, she's far behind and probably dead

Facing the end, I feel it seize my soul
The half-life of a broken mind is dying faster by its will
Facing the end, I think I'll give it up
The half-life of a broken mind is bending further from the light

I can feel her footsteps come
And I know what must be done
Spill her guts onto the floor
Heart is shaking to the core
Gotta find a safer place
Keep a calm and hidden face

Options quickly running out
I guess I'll burn it down

Into the light she flies, I see her cry at what I am
It doesn't matter now, I'll take a stroll on down the hall

Facing the end, I feel it seize my soul
The half-life of a broken mind is dying faster by it's will
Facing the end, the ship is crashing down
The fire's climbing up the walls and bringing with it all our souls
Track Name: Beyond the Walls of Misery
Gone astray, but was I truly lost?
My tortured soul has more than paid the cost
But still I know that others have it worse
To have it all and lose it all still hurts

What can I do?
(You will find that the ending is so certain)
There's no real hope
(There is nothing to do except say goodbye)
Abhor you all
(We are waiting for nothing to take us all)
There's no relief
(Make the best of your time, for it's passing fast)
I scream aloud!

Beyond the walls of misery, that's where you'll find that you'll be free
Another genesis that failed

Suicide, I'll drink myself to death
But nothing works, I always fail the test
There is no choice, I know what I must do
Progress beyond the human point of view

What can I do?
(Casting doubt on the frame of humanity)
There's no escape
(Counting days like a spring coiled up inside)
This mortal shell
(Radiation and restless, the earth inside)
And life decays
(Make the best of your time, for it's passing fast)
I scream aloud

Memories are mocking me
What to do with all the time
Wasting away in shrouds of fear
You, play your games

Meditate to free the god within
Your domain, the den of every sin
Assume control as chaos takes the reigns
My frantic breaths, escape humanity

I know
(There is nothing but pain with your fellow man)
There's no release
(Take a seat and relax as the ending comes)
Abhor you all
(And we'll suffer the filth of your ways no more)
There's no way out
(We are slaves to the whispering ones beyond)
Beyond the walls...
Track Name: Lunar Sunrise
War comes to the heavens in ivory white
Celestial architects left us to burn in the flames, we are crying out for mercy

Isolated
Watching the sky as it blisters and boils
You're abandoned
Feeling the earth start to crumble inside

Everything crumbles down and rolls away
Forgotten, left behind and not remembered

Face the end, we're at the threshold now
It seems a twisted, knotted lie that mother earth could fight and die
And finally we'll join her grave

Leave the moon behind, we are waiting for tomorrow
Lunar sunrise be my guide, where you're going I will follow
Leave the moon behind, we are waiting for tomorrow
Lunar sunrise be my guide, we are waiting for tomorrow

To be the savior of a god
We are crying out for mercy
Lunar sunrise be my guide, where you're going I will follow
I am reborn

See the light
The moon is crashing down
Feel their cries
The human form divine
I am dying within this cage of flesh

Hearts on fire
We are riding the flame
My love's become the snare which patiently devours
Thrones defiled
We won't be stopping the pain

Touch the flower
It will be the last time your senses obey
Kiss her gently
Held in so close for one final embrace

Peeling flesh and blood on windswept bone
It seems a twisted, knotted lie that mother earth could fight and die
I feel that we will meet again
Track Name: The Dying Firmament
The universe is dying, coldest winter of stars
In these final stages we huddle together for warmth

Dying starlight, fading time
Around the life of our red dwarf star, we wait for it's final heartbeat now

In the sea of black, existence falls apart
No more stars to light the sky
The dying firmament

"You've slept so long, child...how incredibly remarkable. We shall provide all the answers in due time"

They say they're waiting for the right time
To fuse their flesh with the wires and die, to be reborn again

"Make your choice, dreamer: life or everlasting ebony. For though our ambitions may seem strange, we are truly quite committed"

Embrace the void
Embrace your fears
For at the core, my friend
That's all there is

Flesh entwined with circuitry
Tendons bridge appendages and bones are cast aside
Our DNA in vials for the day we're finally found

Perverse creations
Inverse relations
They say the multiverse is only given to patient souls

By the fear of dying, we all forgot to live
A final act of defiance we made, to leave the game of life behind

In the sea of black, existence falls apart
No more stars to light the sky
The dying firmament
In this endless void, you're just a fleeting thought
A dim star in and of yourself
The dying firmament
Track Name: The Ethereal
Spiral in the vacuum
Tumble 'round and 'round
There is no north or south here
There is no path for sound

I would feel that it's gone
But there's no "I" to sense

There was a place called Earth once
There was a place called home
I am I
I am everything down to the core of it all

What if all the conscious minds are simply just a song
Played upon a quantum string until the music's gone
It might be the case when we remember our face

"....haven't I come this way before?"
