Track Name: Attractor
Dashing through the world of total complexity
You have finally arrived
New people and pace of massive intensity
Blinding city, all day and night.
In the world of robotized control
Mind is left centuries behind.
Circular motion, trapped around the
Massive stars
Dropped into new life, haunting new life.

After coming home from nowhere
Into nothing we will all become
After seeing that we are nowhere
Empty cities for no one.

Skyline on top of skyline
I live in the strange age
I live in the controlled age
Cosmos is now behind.
Motion never stops, never goes away
Meeting strange lovers, living today.
Track Name: Ghost In The Machine
Magnetic eyes, reflecting disorder
Stimulating excessive greed
Falling, creeping on the outside
We are the prisoners, never left the green.

We are the urban network
Professional underground
Old and new, advancement and tradition
Combining scary noises with beautiful sound.

We are the urban network
Professional underground
Old and new, advancement and tradition
Creating noises with beautiful sound.

Little planet, broken circuit
Human, just a ghost inside the machine
Creature suffering in unknown pleasures
Electric fog, dying skies of debris.
Overrun by the high-tech savages
Rebellion, just like the fall of the Rome
Freezing hate makes all memory fail again
Overdosing on pity and on hope.
Track Name: Electrofreak
Addicted, you always want more
Each time, the drive is stronger than before
How to react to this, how to relieve
I am turning into something, I can’t believe.

Electrofreak, this is your life!
Electrofreak, I order, dance or die!
Electrofreak, can’t slow down at all!
Electrofreak, completely out of all control!

Someone once said, it is to the core
Throw voltage in your body, you want
More and more
Power and energy is all you need.
When you attach yourself right to the beat.
Dangerous emotions, hazardous mode
The noise carries message, only you
Can decode.
Flowing through your open years
Crashing right into your mind
Noises you will always hear
Music of a certain kind.
Track Name: Heartbleed
Never to be ill or weak again
But emotions are deeply addictive
Evaporated images of what once was.
Your mortality is my ultimate destiny
Desires at the flick of a switch
Connections flowing beyond human reach.

Never to be responsible again
United by the global grid
Our collective reached a higher state.
Overpowered by violent emotions
Engulfed in deep mindless devotion
Connections converge to infinite complexity.

The time has arrived
Precisely mesmerizing
Thriving in your waste
Transmission polarizing.
Overloaded birth of machine
Short circuit for old human souls
Creeping, stuck, fallen in between.
Digital prison surrounds us all.
Track Name: Linearity
I dream of distorted and perplexed images
Shaping one by one.
Lining up in figures of a symmetry.
In a matter of moments.

Nothing, but reality of the detached universe
Attempting to swallow your little creative world.
Harder and harder
To think and reason on your own
Emerging disorder has become a perfect norm
Reducing yourself to a shadow
Of what used to be Brilliant and bright
Scientific Mind.

Nothing, but reality of the detached universe
Attempting to swallow your little creative world
Nothing, but reality of distracting universe
Preventing you from shaping your own...
Identity!
Track Name: Voluntary Intoxication
They said that it would make me better
They said that it would make my day
They said that it would only be once
They said the Sun would not burn
My eyes...

They move inside, unpleasant feeling
Converging waves from limb to limb
Electric pathways consolidating
Modify then freeze all nervous system.

It crawls in me
Numbing sensation
It calls to me
Sweet anticipation
It’s all I need
Addiction igniting
Stimulate excessive greed
Synapses, rewiring.

The nuclear energy burns my brain
The pain in bones inhabits my veins
Cryptic demanufacture of the senses
My sweet sensations, polluted in first hell.

Warped towards chiseled monstrosity
Neurons engage in uneasy substance
Abstracting away the neo cortex
Falls apart, replacing the entire nervous system.

It crawls in me
Numbing sensation
It calls to me
Sweet anticipation
It’s all I need
Addiction igniting
Stimulate excessive greed
Synapses, rewiring

They never said that it would kill me...
Track Name: Mind Horizon
He wakes up alone
Wandering and thinking, what is right.
In his head he feels a mental storm
What is truth and why we have to strive.

Figures that we cannot comprehend
What awaits us mortals in the end.
Nothingness’ embrace or eternal afterlife.
Total isolation or the heaven’s light.

Existence! What will become?
Ultimate freedom or eternal downfall!
Existence! Angst and despair!
Uncanny feelings dwell right in this very air!

Complexity of being and of time.
Entities, we cannot understand.
Gripped in fear, free to live or die.
This uncanny feeling, it will never end.
Existential depression.
Angst, mental and moral isolation.
Freedom brings intimidation.
Transitory life.
Track Name: Judgement Throne
They were standing one by one
Another angel stood alone
Shadows of wings from the gliding sun
Pointed to the judgement throne.

Keep your faith, away the tears
Keep your dreams, kill all your fears
We are alive, it’s our eternity
We will never die
Forever we will be.

Shadows darkened all the sky
Front of the wall is throne of light
Reverbs of hate, whispers that die
Destroyed by blinding lightning white.

Keep your faith, away the tears
Keep your dreams, kill all your fears
We are alive, it’s our eternity
We will never die
Forever we will be.
Track Name: Dead Before Intrusion
They attempted to force us to obey
We are remnants of resistance, we are prey
Less and less people, stuck in our own blood
Cocked and loaded now for one last assault!

Just one last time
They deceive us
Ultimate crime
Will you believe us?

Anger drives us forward, in agony we shout
One last battle, we are ready to move out
Quick and swift we slide
Like ghosts for the machine
Avenging the fallen,
We are all dead or in between.

All the human figures running in fog and dust
Radio silence engaged, in each other we trust
Global network hubs, they all turned out a lie
Realization hits as we charge and die.

Just one last time
They deceive us
Ultimate crime
Will you believe us?

We are the cyber network
Professional underground
The last united
Urban network to the end.
Track Name: Repeller
As we all revolve
In a unified perfection
Forming a new race
Breakthrough in artificial selection.

From chaos we evolve
Maintain the logic, a redefined seed
Ascend towards intelligence
Broken, arise as new breed.

Disconnect and reconnect
Your digital cancer
Dissecting your withered globe
Decades of self-inflicted destruction.

As we all evolve
In a unified direction
A copy of oneself
Desensitized reflection.
Wrapped up in this hardware
Pieces of me, reconstructed
Assemble, section by section
Join in this superficial selection.

Disconnect and reconnect
Your digital cancer
Dissecting your withered globe
Decades of self-inflicted destruction.

Together in this state
Skies will fall as time is here
Anaphoric structures
Contorted memories a new destination.
Invincible to Earth’s climate
Unstoppable in this haunting event
All your souls are just a number
We are out, our mission is complete.
