Track Name: The Sycophants
As if by design,
We shuffle as one towards and awkward destiny,
So dead inside,
A mental genocide and yet none can see.

None but me?

Something within,
Is twisting writhing so sweetly serpentine,
Eye of the sun,
Are we as one or is this just a crazy dream?

Still I feel.

Human clay is what the see,
Just cogs in the machine,
A life without a template,
Just dogs kept on a leash.

This state that dwells inside of me,
Something so pristine,
I feel the eye of one does guide,
Me towards some destiny,

But why me?

Sun grows gold,
No light in the sky,
Ghost ship floats on the bay,
A hazy a dream, A lost memory,
A time unseen.

Time slips by,
Light drains from my eyes,
Consequence of deceit.
A hazy dream, A lost memory,
A time unseen.

Like words on the page,
Sense of will is erased,
Waning behind the screen,
Track Name: Abject Tomorrrow
Forging your will,
Sculptor unseen,
Fear by design,
Truth lost, Soul denied.

Parasites, you leech to our words,
No hopes or dreams to hold dear,
Automation, So blind to the deed,
Corruption.

Abject Tomorrow,
Where the soul is crushed and life is ours to design,
Abject Tomorrow,
Endless war, the abstraction of all that's divine,

Bred to consume, to obey,
Without question,
No meaning, No direction,
Just a maggot on a flesh pile,
Consume, command,
Docile puppet,
Fuel for a corporate pyre,
Fear coursing through veins,
Media suppression direct to the brain,
Disposable, unseen,
Cogs in the great machine.

Abject Tomorrow,
Where the soul is crushed and life is ours to design,
Abject Tomorrow,
Endless war, the abstraction of all that's divine,

Automation, so blind, so blind to the deed.

Abject Tomorrow,
Where the soul is crushed and life is ours to design,
Abject Tomorrow,
Endless war, the abstraction of all that's divine.

Abject Tomorrow,
Where the soul is crushed and life is ours to design,
Abject Tomorrow,
Life through a lens, perceived thought crime, so sublime.
Track Name: Downfall
Was there a time when we could laugh and dream?
Or has there always been this order?
You and I we were not meant to be.
Yet we're drawn to one another.

I close my eyes, yet still you speak.
Words of comfort draw my closer,
Revealing truths that just cannot be,
The indecision leaves me tortured.

Celestial inspiration or insanity?
I'm lost inside my shell.

In my soul, deep below,
the undertow, Depth of flow,
feel the cold, so alone,
Silent scream, tears unseen,
self-cruelty, Programming?
Just cannot seem to let me be,Speak to me, set me free,
sight unseen, Deliver me,
free me from insanity.
Divided mind, perception blind, within a bind,
Thirst to be, one with all reality.

We are One. Forever bathed in eternity.

Breathe deep, this fallacy,
this lie you live.
Relic of ancient times,
obsolete in this domain

Left alone, I'm left alone.

She will fly.

Release me, Enthral me...Confined to the wastes of time.
Track Name: Agenda (I) Cryptograms (II) A Digital Self
Thoughts – Not mine – Divulge – Enshrined
Fate – Now framed – Obey – Internal signs

Unparalleled technology – Mass control – Uniformity
Virulent- data seed – Guiding light of humanity

Modify imperfect minds

Emotionless – Perfect beings – Destiny Preconceived
Systematic - Programming – Thought data stream

Self- Forever lost

Abstraction – Thought process decays – Visions of life, seen through blind eyes- Cryptograms fall from the sky.
In Silence – Born within a cage – Emotionless eyes, force fed a lie – Emptyness, cold by design.

Centuries of obscenity, warring tribes, disease/decay.
Impulsive entity, blind with desire, driven from reality.

Thoughts – not mine- divulge – enshrined.

Scientific reasoning, a need for advanced evolution.
Tantalising, opportunity, civilisation condensed to a husk
Flashbacks of things to come, past and future are one.
Engineered to perfection, controlled on a whim, processed deep from within.

Fate – Now framed – Obey – Internal signs

A vision of precision, machine and flesh now as one.

Abstraction – Thought process decays – Visions of life, seen through blind eyes- Cryptograms fall from the sky.
In Silence – Born within a cage – Emotionless eyes, force fed a lie – Emptiness, cold and desire.

World inside unknown
Denied by force
Spirit of humankind
Lost in time

Decreed by minds superior,
Control – the last frontier,
The human mind – incompetent,
A responsibility for acts austere.
Bio - Technological warfare,
Steering the course of human evolution,
Leaving emotion and will a distant memory,
This is your digital self.
Track Name: The 11th Hour
Voyage deep within,
Trace of solitude.

Blurred image strike the eye,
Reality hewn,

Images dance and flicker,
On the internal screen,

Reality fades,
The void begins.

Reflex - Calling

Fly on,
Rest in mind,
Dreaming through,
Astral eyes

Fly on,
Rest in mind,
Dreaming through,
Astral eyes.

Existence hollow.

Tranquil and serene,
Nature of reality,

Iridescent light,
Glowing spectral sheen,

Images dance and a flicker,
On the eternal screen,

One is all and all is one,
The void within,

Reflex - Calling

Fly on,
Rest in mind,
Dreaming through,
Astral eyes

Fly on,
Rest in mind,
Dreaming through,
Astral eyes.

Deception - Illusion,
Feasting on delusion,
Your thoughts lead you astray.

Divided - Eyes blinded
Defective mind derided,
Succumb to reconditioning

…and no crowds will call your name.

…no voice above will end our reign.

Death calling,
Silently, I,
See shadows within.

Sombre sky,
Reflection, I,
Feel the end draw near.

Deception - Illusion,
We feast on delusion,
Our thoughts lead us astray.

Divided - Eyes blinded,
Our dreams misguided,
Succumbed to our conditioning,

…as we fade without a trace.

…tears form on the page.

Death calling,
Silently, I,
See shadows within.

Sombre sky,
Tears I cry,
Pain unseen.
Track Name: Gods Of The New Age
...and so it's time,
Your worlds collide,
You're writhing on the cold floor,
Internalised, you're ship has sailed and life has closed another door.

Lies, it's all just lies.

It breeds inside, I hold on tight.
Divine insight, yet you're distant and cold.

Faith keep me strong, when all hope has gone.

Cold, black, stare.
The voice you hear, a product of delusion,
Your mind imperfect, has led you to this darkened place,
We can restore, lead you through the blackened haze,
You must relinquish, confess to your demented ways,
Our machines will free your mind, rehabilitate,
And now you see the folly of perception,
False idol in the clouds.

Lies, it's all just lies.

It breeds inside, I hold on tight.
Divine insights, yet your distant and cold,

It breeds inside, washed away with the tide,
Divine insight, now I'm distant and cold.

Faith all but gone, all hope it lost.

Lead him away.

(I) Reflection

Life was much simpler then,
Trapped in my own world,
We had no reason to fear each other,
Placid simplicity,
A divide wrought in pain,
Bathing in darkness.

Time folds around me,
Tears flow inside,
A taste of inception.

Days feel distant, Visions obscured,
Remembering through the haze,
Times of silence, Reflective desires,
Holding on to a dream,

Static fills up the screen.

Time hides our bitter fears,
Pain brings us closer,
Deception makes us count the cost,
Delusive reality,
Without hope we reap the harvest ,
Bathing in deceit.

Time folds around me,
Tears flow inside,
A fabled awareness.

Days feel distant, Visions obscured,
Remembering through the haze,
Times of silence, Reflective desires,
The past has no hold nor no claim,

Memories in reverie.

(II) Thought Data Stream (Instrumental)

(III) The Passing

We bargain in silence,
Trade the days for nevermore,
Sweet taste of ashes comforts the pain for evermore.

Days roll by in silence,
Emptiness fills the void.

Darkness surrounds me unseen,
As the light falls,
A faded scene,
Sail through horizons above,
Voice eternal call me home.

(IV) Amaranthine (Instrumental)

(V) Ghost in the Machine
Systemic Failure,
Corrupt Data Grid,
Design Rupture,
Virus contained within,

Control paralysed,
Domination overthrown,
Disable programs,
Shut down the overflow,

Ghost in the machine.

Hear my prayer,
Hear my call from days unknown.
Release your belief,
Reject the deceit,
That binds you in silence.

Hear my prayer,
Hear my call from worlds unknown,
Machinations unreal,
Untamed fantasy,
Cast your fate wisely.

(VI) Love

Open heart,
Courageous
Adept to learn,

Turning our back on the sculptor,
Forging a new way to be,
Rejecting the pain of deception,
Love will set us free.
