Track Name: The Collapse
Scene III

[NARRATIVE]
The ominous tone echoes as the gears begin to turn
As light attempts to cut through
the sky is lost to the blind
It exists beyond, knowingly

Grounded by gravity though unsure why
The realms unknown offer messages of so much more
Technological footprints, each day they grow
As we drift further into chaos, chaos becomes all that we know
It's all that we know
This cluttered dimension holds little sign of hope or truth
Break down the walls, transcend beyond

The key lies within our own minds
No longer suppressed by their lies
Watch them panic and then realize
Follow!

We build machines because they give us the subtle certainty
that the night grows brighter
A new day will come
Wait and see

Scene IV

What started as an itch has gone full blown
The clouded reality is that we're losing connection to our souls
We're losing connection
Our free will is no longer our own
It slipped away unnoticed, we have to take it back
There must be a way to reverse desensitization

Mechanical monsters we built ourselves
now bring our own demise
with war waged across the cosmos
We should have seen this coming
We should have seen the signs
The collapse of our world starts now

The key lies within our own minds
No longer suppressed by their lies
Watch them panic and then realize
Follow!

We build machines because they give us the subtle certainty
that the night grows brighter
A new day will come
Wait and see
Track Name: State of Duality
Scene III

[THE RESISTOR]
Our world, collapsing unto its own foundation
while essences of existence only expire
under impressions composed by impostors of life
They hold no value in intended structures

We've watched the world burn in the eyes of the innocent
Everything we're entitled to is held, choked by veinless hands
This is not a war up for debate
The nature of existence is at stake

Our world, collapsing unto its own foundation
while essences of existence only expire
under impressions composed by impostors of life
Guilt is a product of regret
this is merely what needs to be done

Never again will we tamper with appeal for Divine will
We're not to categorize convenience with dependence
Dependence is the mold between hydraulics and anatomy
Dependence is a mold to a still extinction

[THE DESTROYER]
We've offered your survival
everything in your instincts
And with infinite at your fingertips
you've refused us

Their resistance is no longer a mere bite and itch
These insects now carry plague amongst machine

They waste their lives
They waste their resources

[THE CREATOR]
I gave you life to enrich our own
This has gone too far
You never had a throne
This was the next step forward
This was the new age
This was our greatest advance
It's not your choice to make

Scene IV

[THE DESTROYER]
Absorb you
Dissolve you
Control you
Forget the distinction, there is no separation

[NARRATIVE]
The collective absorbs the minds of the many
The individual's extinct and the progress continues

Our future has taken a new form
What was meant to liberate our minds has imprisoned our souls

[THE DESTROYER - Unsung]
As one our eyes see all that can be
with a collective knowledge of all that ever was
Your individual is extinct

The Father of Gods bound in chains
to embrace his definition of perfection
We will live forever
a collective knowledge of all that ever was

This world could have been so much more
Your world offered so much more
We must rebuild to advance
We must destroy to rebuild

Clear the path and progress
Clear the path to perfection

Steer for the stars
an age is closing with the eyes of Man
Steer for their heart
you must destroy to rebuild

The Father of Gods bound in chains
to embrace his appeal for perfection

Scene V

Clear the path – progress
Clear the path – rebuild

[THE CREATOR]
We cannot lose sight of our intentions
The collective mind distorts what is true
Do not succumb to your invention
Perceive beyond and struggle through

We cannot lose sight of our intentions
The collective mind obstructs what we once knew
Do not succumb to your invention
Take them back and start anew
