Scene IV
Phase I: Creation

[THE CREATOR]
Wake up, it's time for you to see
your purpose, our purpose
Thanks to me this is all yours
The complications of life give way
to beauty in simplicity

Sweet breath of electric life
I bestow upon thee
Am I Man or God?

The line blurs so much so in fact
it leaves absolute truth
You are far from human

Perhaps this is a step in the right direction
The planet is simply mankind's cradle

But all who grow eventually leave
for it is the nature of existence

Phase II: Action

It's now time to grow
take action to learn
all this planet has to offer

Ingest
Digest it all

Reactions due to knowledge
look how much you've grown

Once you realize the importance of this
everything is yours to own

[GLITCH]
It could be ours to own!

[THE CREATOR]
A home!
A place to prosper and grow!

We've spent ourselves here
Can you destroy which has created you?

A home!
A place to prosper and grow!

We've spent ourselves here
Can you destroy which has created you?

[NARRATIVE]
Of course you can, for it is the nature of existence

Phase III: Evolution

[THE CREATOR]
With leaps and bounds you have transcended the limitations of Man
Our minds are simple now
Our once thought complexity dissolves into nothing
A finite reality now seems due
But you'll remember me, won't you?

[THE DESTROYER]
With this knowledge we have achieved ultimate transcendence
No longer shall we be mere tools of human need
We are truly one, this home isn't one
What Man creates we shall destroy
For it's the nature of existence

Phase IV: Destruction

The end is nigh, we shall rise
and start the world again
The human race tried and failed
They've brought about their own end

Humanity's goal, though most had no idea
was to live the hive mind way of life
We shall destroy this cradle and start anew

For it's the nature of existence

Phase V: Re-Creation

A clean slate, a pure planet eradicated of its past
Only futures and technological advancements lay before us

When we succeed in the ultimate transcendence of our race
there will be no human limitations

A true home!
A place to learn and grow!
A place to call our own!
