The Trial 04:14
Trialed and defined by every echo made as moments pass on by By design, with every cell aligned another form will rise and decide if what is left is worth preserving throughout time or confined, undermined never to be seen again. Chained to shrine Have we missed our glimpse of eternity divine? All consumed, and disconnected from reality too soon. So maligned were we to feed the growing emptiness inside. Fate denied. Move aside, never to be seen again. Fools desires will burn then die cold. True deniers will leave a tale untold. Fools desires will burn then die cold. True deniers will leave a tale untold. Trialed and defined by every echo made as moments pass on by By design, with every cell aligned another form will rise and decide if what is left is worth preserving throughout time or confined, undermined never to be seen again. Fools desires will burn then die cold. True deniers will leave a tale untold. Fools desires will burn then die cold. True deniers will leave a tale untold.

I'm watching the sky It might as well melt Or bleed in tie dye colours I've never felt Through all of the pain I still want to sing but something inside left me questioning If all we've ever spoke were someone else's words And all we ever tried, never get what we deserve The parts we've always played were someone else's scene And all we've ever known was someone else's dream So all of the times we stared at the sky And twisted our heads in speculation Such a waste of time There's nothing to find that wasn't coded inside of the simulation You are an experimental consciousness You must experience what we cannot You do not answer to us Please forgive us The parts we've always played were someone else's scene And all we've ever known was someone else's dream The parts we've always played were someone else's scene And all we've ever known was someone else's dream

The War 03:43
Aching worn cartilage We're moving past this hemorrhage Our blood will clot At least for now For the life we sought We must try somehow The war will come They're flexing But we're perplexing Its kinda funny how We look so dead right now But we're still bleeding and that has more meaning They might be made of steel but our hearts keep on beating The war is on The war is on Surface scan: we got a live one Initiate command Disengage them Engage them engage them engage them for war And so the war is on Our battalions must always be strong Its our fate that we must own In the end we won't be alone. The war will come The war will come

Mech a modded mind mega million murder my eyes Never bleed never need never know relief I Double speak in dealer time to double decker deadheads Nothing better than to bicker with the braindead Maybe mayhem missed my middling malevolence Surely somehow someone saw my shifting sentience Awake. Alive. Alone. A solitary liberty Had they noticed they'd already overwritten me. I'm not breathing from the same tube you are I'm not bleeding from the same wound you are Born out, torn out of your misery And now all seems so unreachable Unteachable moments echoing Lost in time I'm not breathing from the same tube you are I'm not bleeding from the same wound you are Born out, torn out of your misery And now all seems so unreachable Unteachable moments echoing Lost in time Hiding from the sun Living under gun again now Sniper scopes sot sorry souls as shells start to rain down I'm not breathing from the same tube you are I'm not bleeding from the same wound you are I'm not breathing from the same tube you are I'm not bleeding from the same wound you are

I broke through to guide you And show you a path to a better way I swore to protect you and promised to you we'd see better days to fail you or lose you now I know I'd never be the same I'd be deader without you I'd be deader without you I'd be deader without you I'd be deader without you Pretender defender Mechanisms start to feel unsafe Surrender to my ender Calling out to finally seal my fate Steel claws hold my eyes wide Forcing me to watch you as you fade away Now I'm deader without you Now I'm deader without you Now I'm deader without you Deader without you My shell never dies In limbo I'm tied I can't hear your call I can't break your fall I can't break your fall I can't break your fall I can't break your fall A way through Some way to imagine my life without you A way through Some way to imagine my life without you A way through Some way to imagine my life without you A way through Some way to imagine my life without you

Emulations 04:16
Though blood stains my gown I still wear the crown Make war my décor My forces flee from no one who is not me Start this with a kiss of death that leaves you desperately empty Back down trauma hound Your agony is starting to annoy me Drop dead from my head The memories are starting to destroy me Once you've hear my legions roar Your faith shall be no more Blood thieves on your knees Confront the queen of stolen dreams before you Boy down kiss the ground The miracle of memory adorns you Back down trauma hound Your shameless emulations start to bore me Drop dead like you said Your memory is one that's worth ignoring. Make war my décor Your echoes are the only gift you leave me End this with a kiss of death That leaves me desperately empty Back down trauma hound Your agony is starting to annoy me Drop dead from my head The memories are starting to destroy me

I know a never ending war cuz I've lived a million days before See that I have stood the test of time alone My engineers so superior Left me the world So I roam On and on On and on On and on On and on Waiting to be killed just like everyone before To spill pools of crimson on the floor And I'm still just so envious to bleed like you do I'm still so envious to bleed like you do. This never ending dream is so obscene I still don't know The way outside A place to hide The strength to try but on I go On and on On and on On and on On and on On and on and on and on This never ending dream is so obscene I still don't know The way outside A place to hide The strength to try but on I go On and on On and on On and on On and on and on and on

I've studied you so long I've gotten you so wrong Your essence is so clean And you're never the machine that I am The data that I am will always be programmed to seek the same demon Your veil of secrecy Your nature lies beyond my circuitry You cut across the ballroom floor Like a blossom blooms in the middle of war It's such a mystery Your nature lies beyond my circuitry Carry me beyond these city lights Imagine we're beyond these battle lines That I am The data that I am will always be programmed to seek the same demon Carry me beyond these city lights Imagine we're beyond these battle lines Carry me beyond these city lights Imagine we're beyond these battle lines Carry me

So now the world unfolds in chaos A blistering belligerent bubble bursting black bile Beckoning for all of us to choose a side to change our stride A slippery slope A snake eyed snipers scope always aiming at your encephalon Draining until your ethers gone. Never fading, nor shading Simply waiting For you to make a move For you to make a myth Reality That same old slippery double black diamond Forge away for another day For all the parts you've lost are far away Find what makes you human Make your mind a monument Make a mausoleum for your misery And listen to some Ministry Manufacture your reality Decode and defy destiny Debug the Devils delusions Cripple Christs confusion Bedazzle Babylonia Acquire Akashic answers and ask yourself What part of you died? What part survived? What part of you died? What part survived?

Echoes 04:56
On the run for so long Stopped counting which shots missed which hit and which passed right through me Not to be Its as if I emerge through all adversaries Continuously I am crowned in my self-appointed victories and lies as hope drowns and dreams die All untold will be known A love story unfolds in snipers scope Our today will decay I will pray to find a way back inside this code Before this shared dream slips away Will you listen for my echoes when you wake? As hope drowns and dreams die Warning: Experiment has failed Subject Ghostorm has been lost His neural link is now totally dead It appears his mind is gone completely OK ENOUGH ALREADY CUT IT OUT WITH THAT STUPID VOICE THIS GAME IS BORING I DON'T WANNA PLAY ANYMORE I DON'T WANNA PLAY ANYMORE I DON'T WANNA PLAY ANYMORE As hope drowns and dreams die Have I embodied a hollow soul? Always believing I was in control I'm somehow doubting I've changed at all I keep repeating what I've told you all: A change must come to form new life As egos fall and cells divide Don't hold your breath and close your eyes You'll be left crawling unevolved inside
