WAKE UP

Scene VI

[THE CREATOR]
I have changed my heart and swore against
the things that brought us here
But cannot change my past to undo
the future that I bare

Watched the stars trek across the dark
with resentment on my mind
By the time that I realized their intent -- the truth
the bout was gone

No, this is not the time or place
I will cease to be
negligently enslaved to end the race
I can fight

Can I still stop? I can change the plan
This is not supposed to be who I am
Have I gone too far now?
Is this all that I am?

After all this I have learned
delusion of reality
Swift motion I decide to take control
can it really change everything?

Steer for the stars, close the age, start anew
Change course -- I know I can refuse
I take reins, take the reins to all that I know
Somewhere I feel that it's still within
I know that I am still human
I won't hold this on my back

[THE DESTROYER]
You cannot turn your errors back

[THE CREATOR]
Override -- I cannot repent

[THE DESTROYER]
Sequence -- stand fast – you can't undo

[THE CREATOR]
Forward -- course set -- never return
Regret -- I am a man -- I choose

We were never meant to hold the key
systems unbound; free
I still feel hope
halting what we called progress
I the catalyst, they will not walk as false gods

No, this is not the time or place
I will cease to be

Through programmed intentions
I've seen the error of my own ways
for this is human fault
Calculating my invention's devastation
this all comes to a halt

Scene VII

Steer for their heart, close the age, start anew
One chance -- it's all I can give you
I take blame, take the blame for all they've done
Somehow I know that it's still within
I know that I am still human

[THE DESTROYER]
Take them back, start a new
we are not gods, but know that this is true;
You brought this on yourselves

[NARRATIVE]
Take us back, start anew
you are not gods, but know that this is true;
We brought this on ourselves
