Track Name: Imperium
All you know
and all you believe
fabrication

search within and search without
perceive the lie
lay eyes upon the constancy:
deception

all is withheld
all is controlled
we are controlled
you are controlled
Track Name: Causality
the mind pulls the strings of the heart
pulls the strings of the body
but whose hand clenches the strings of the mind?
a note is struck and we resound accordingly

you don't have to see it
or choose to believe it
but once seen, unseen no more

are we really so naïve to believe
our thoughts and actions are truly our own?
cause and effect
ones and zeros
every choice merely an option in a handpicked catechism
and selections are weighted
to their benediction

we are tame and obtuse
predilection and malevolence
counseled to intent
all subsists as by design
we view from the pixel
failing to behold the grand scheme

you don't have to see it
or choose to believe it
but once seen, unseen no more
and once known, unknown no longer

an ignorance of eyes upon thee
negates not their existence
nor their motive
keep clinging to the illusion of free will
society is an orchestration
your motives are predetermined
tread atypical and be erased
your space removed and replaced
like fragmented data

freedom is a virus
and they are scanning
"hyperion to a satyr"
we are only as free
as cogs in the machine
Track Name: Alt+del
either we are great or we are insignificant
but is there really a difference?
are we truly more mighty than ever?
or are we barely aware?
even at "the pinnacle of greatness and strength"
we are still enshrouded in mystery

should history repeat
the future still remains unknown
as knowledge of the past remains controlled

search within, examine without
and decide how clear the truth rings
while the players have changed
the strategy remains
control all knowledge
control the truth
control the masses

who knows how far we've come
who knows how far we've regressed
who knows what lies beyond our feeble state of mind

control all knowledge
control the truth
control the masses
Track Name: 2.0
the subject is torn
a consciousness awaits if left unchecked
speak to him, pull the reigns
we must intercede, we must intercept this looming threat

"rest yourself oh anxious mind
devolve not in to such convolution
just pick yourself up and dust yourself off
there's much to be done
and the grind it waits for none"

but something here's not right
this digital landscape reeks of collapse
even our fantasies are overcome with dystopian dreams

"you are hailed as king
you could live forever..."

Just think of what it would feel like to leave this waste of existence
feel the chords in the back of your head
grab ahold, disconnect

and see the world for the stage that it is
full of languid dancers approaching their abyss
with their tattered hearts all worn and thin
give and rise to a great dominion
and there we were all tethered
a slightest tug prompting all endeavors
this is an orchestration
we are ambient noise and calculation
Track Name: Theta
again I dreamt a dream
quiet as a whisper that echoed and shook the sea
the great and mighty terra firma
brought asunder by static hands

as we tiptoe around our event horizon
the cries for help are outweighed
by laments of unrequited love
staring oblivion in the face
bleating hearts sing of their disconsolate status

what will become of us when truth escapes singularity
and all comes to light?
when all is revealed, our legacy of squandered time
what reward awaits as we devalue that which can never be retrieved?
what will become of us?
do palms read hold the weight of anchors?
just as the world, the blind eye continues to turn
and the void is staring back

reason has lost its voice
and they have lost the will to hear
so we shall speak a language that the understand
Track Name: Summon the Heterodox
i awoke to find a truth far more pitiful
egocentricity, the final plague of our age
effectively neutralized on our own accord
who can save the world with a broken heart?

castrated sapiens, doleful and disgusting

doomed to repetition
how many celestial bodies
must endure the terror of man
darwinian failure
perfection devolved to a great ash

i awoke to find a truth far more pitiful
egocentricity, the final plague of our age
effectively neutralized on our own accord
who can save the world with a broken heart?

our name will ring throughout the vacuum
we are destroyers
our name will ring throughout the vacuum
foolish
childish
destroyers
Track Name: Actus Reus
what shall we do?
what action is warranted for such docility?
left to their own devices the fragile balance becomes overturned
such vile, inadequate existence
threatens the entire constituency

their lungs filled
unceasingly aspirating the putrescence they spew
as though the aim to bring about their own demise
blindly follow the loudest voice from the highest of heights
engulfed in skewed truths
force-feeding indoctrination to subordinates
birthing a legion of marionettes
spreading the way of pharisaicalness

the thankless
the unmerciful
the truly despicable

there is no salvation for these loveless wretched swine
if grace is not shared, then lost is all we are
and dark has grown the day

the sheep have spoken
the sheep have chosen
feed them to the fire

the thankless
the unmerciful
the truly despicable
feed them to the fire
