lyrics

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
