Node Lyrics

Submitted by level 록스타
1. Soma (4:02)
Daydreamer
Rise and shine
Daily deja vu
Yet still surprised
Watch the weary world with greyscale eyes

A millionaire in my mind
With a pocket full of lint
Confined to a puzzle where the pieces don't fit
Stare into a broken mirror
Reflecting shards of fear
Daydreamer
Now's your time
I refuse to die here

I refuse to die here

I see a prison of a city, destined for collapse
I see the worker bees buzzing in circles
Fighting over scraps
I see a concrete garden
Of lead and steel trees
I see the clouds swell with synthetic disease

A visionless man can't balance the scale
The court of conscience slips secrets on the gavel
Written in Braille
Lie just beyond my fingertips

Daydreamer
Rise and shine
Daily deja vu
Yet still surprised
Watch the weary world with greyscale eyes

A millionaire in my mind
With a pocket full of lint
Confined to a puzzle where the pieces don't fit
Stare into a broken mirror
Reflecting shards of fear
Daydreamer
Now's your time
I refuse to die here

I refuse to die here
2. Obelisk (4:14)
Time in constant motion,
Like the shifting desert sands
Slipping through my hands

Chasing down the minutes,
That turn into days
Seconds get shorter,
As years fall away
Chasing down my dreams
Under borrowed light
A mirage in the distance,
Escaping my sight

Driven to live or driven apart
What's inside us when we depart
Driven to live outside of regret
Time is finite, the clocks are set
Driven to live or driven apart

I realize my flame is burning away
Starward searching I will find my way
The power of the mind ready to combust
I will show you fear in a handful of dust

Combust

My flame is fleeting,
But I will live and learn
Rise and burn, Tick and Turn
Rise and burn

Time in constant motion,
Like the shifting desert sands
Slipping through my hands

Driven to live or driven apart
What's inside us when we depart
Driven to live outside of regret
Time is finite, the clocks are set
Driven to live or driven apart

Combust
3. Node (4:42)
You can be the change

Pain is the elixir that keeps us entertained
Flowing through a looking glass
Numbing stinging eyes of shame
Absence rinses guilt away
But our conscience is still stained
You can be the catalyst
The ripple to the wave

You can be the change

One small step will shake the earth

We're sedated into submission
Apathetic addicts
Hooked on tunnel vision

Mindless progress is a dire setback
Humanity is slipping through the cracks

Let the pathways through our hearts guide us
To a universe where love survives us

You can be the change

One small step will shake the earth

Let the pathways through our hearts guide us
To a universe where love survives us
收缩
4. Ohm (4:07)
The earth gets smaller with everything i see
A technicolor picture on a black and white screen
There's a blackout on the ground
But an energy above the trees
Just past the edge of sound
So climb the ladder with me

Wanderer
Survey the shrinking globe
All your troubles seem smaller
The farther you go
Wanderer
Never coming home
All your troubles seem smaller
The farther you go

Shed the dead weight
Flight will follow
From the island that world will surely swallow

Falling our of orbit
My thoughts scrambled and distorted
Sailing through space in a panic
To escape the static

Escape the static

Wanderer
Survey the shrinking globe
All your troubles seem smaller
The farther you go
Wanderer
Never coming home
All your troubles seem smaller
The farther you go

How clear is the air up there
Breathe easy
Breathe easy as you leave the atmosphere
Breathe easy
5. Nameless (2:19)
[Instrumental]
6. Rot (3:53)
So cold my soul's numb
Like an icy breeze on solstice morning
The worst enemy’s one that’s homegrown
This is more than just a faceless warning.

Don't let the world rot
Don't let the world rot
Hanging by a thread they just putrefy
Our blood our birth our sky
And we will not stand by
Don't let the world rot

So warm the sun burns my soul
Like the fossils in the earth they take my breath

Black blood bleeding heart filled stone
Take the power away from the hands of death

A web of minds connected
Take purpose,
Take action
Cause a reaction
Entangle the spiders
Make sense of this mess
A mind at large
Is a power they can’t repress

We are all connected
We are one you and I
Yeah we will not stand by

Don’t let the world rot

Omnipotent mind at large
Sick of living underhanded
This is our life we command it
Go
We can’t all hide in fear
A time of reckoning is near
We are all connected
Don’t let the world rot

We can’t all hide in fear
A time of reckoning is near
We are all connected
A web of minds connected
Take purpose,
Take action,
Cause a reaction
Entangle the spiders
Make sense of this mess
A mind at large
Is a power they can’t repress

Sick of living underhanded
This is our life we command it
7. Leech (4:21)
Follow me underwater
Until the searchlights leave the shore
Follow me underwater
Until we find what we're looking for

Plastic oceans, plastic farms
Cover your footprints like a band-aid on a broken arm

They found the pipeline through the soul in the soil
I thought this place never changed
But now the reefs are bleeding smells of oil
And the forests are up in flames

You fell asleep, you fell asleep, you fell asleep
While your bed burned
You fell asleep, you fell asleep, you fell asleep
While your bed burned

Give me a reason, tell me why we lost our reason
Tell me the truth, not an excuse
Cause we have everything to lose

Plastic oceans, plastic farms
Cover your footprints like a band-aid on a broken arm

There's a cancer in our lifeblood, so silently it grew
The streams of least resistance poison me and poison you
There's a virus in the air, that drags the wind out from my chest
I don't see a way out
All I see is a sphere of unrest

Show me a way out
Show me a way out
Show me a way out

Follow me underwater
Until the searchlights leave the shore
Follow me underwater
Until we find what we're looking for

Plastic oceans, plastic farms
Cover your footprints like a band-aid on a broken arm

You fell asleep, you fell asleep, you fell asleep
While your bed burned
You fell asleep, you fell asleep, you fell asleep
While your bed burned
8. Impulse (3:35)
So alone in our digital world

The walls are closing in
Shrinking down to the box in the palm of my hand
The shock has settled in
Fibers and wires
Feed me the link that we desire

Every circuit getting smarter
Every signal getting stronger
But our ties are getting weaker
And I see us sinking deeper

I see it sinking deeper

Flawed relations of ones and zeroes connecting us to our digital heroes
An anti-social network where everyone's a fucking expert

I see it sinking deeper

Hollow as a hologram
Electricity without the spar
Hearts left to flicker and fade
Out in the dark

So alone in our digital world

Impulses flowing through my veins
Impulses flowing through copper
Flowing in waves
It feels so close
Yet so far away

Every circuit getting smarter
Every signal getting stronger
But our ties are getting weaker
And I see us sinking deeper

I see it sinking deeper

The walls are closing in
9. Weightless (5:15)
Weightless my body
Floats in eternity
Weightless beyond the earth's gravity
A euphoric perpetual gaze
I taste the light of days

Beneath a luminescent haze
I cross the convoluted maze
Guided by familiar sight and sound
I let go of what weighs me to the ground

Weightless my body
Floats in eternity
Weightless beyond the earth's gravity
A euphoric perpetual gaze
I taste the light of days
10. Ra (4:27)
I am the tear in the gravity,
The universal truth is my reality,
In a drifting space,
Where the dark draws near
I am stronger than fear

Collapse under the horizon
The ruins of a thousand stars
Illuminate who we are:

No drive
No direction
Purify
My perception

Sail on
Through the rift between the sky and ocean
Sail on
Find the peace that keeps your world in motion

Stare into the face of the sun
It melts away a shell of wax
To show the world how fucked I've become:

No drive
No direction
Purify my perception

There's a desert in my head,
But an oasis in my dreams
Where veins glow in leaves,
And illuminate the breeze

I will drag my being
To the edge of the beginning
Never still, never idle
Sever me from the endless spiral

Sail on
Through the rift between the sky and ocean
Sail on
Find the peace that keeps your world in motion

Lost inside a drifting space,
Where drifting days interlace
And everything I saw so clear,
Dances then disappears

I need to be grounded
But the plates keep shifting
So I look for my place
Where this space stops drifting
11. Animate (5:24)
The narrow road is all I know
No map to guide us
No compass beside us
The narrow road
The great unknown
The grater sacrifice grants the greatest gift in life

No more assembly lines of aspirations connecting carbon copy clones
Every artifact is marching like commodities of flesh and bone

The consistency of our censored thoughts
Tread a static course

Ordinary people: your outlook is lethal

Chiseling away imperfections
Until rough edges are same and smooth
The tools have now become too blunt
To break any of the rules

Post-modern minds bleached blank and clean
Drawing pixelated lines
In duller shades that my eyes have ever seen

The narrow road is all I know
No map to guide us
No compass beside us
The narrow road
The great unknown
The grater sacrifice grants the greatest gift in life

No more assembly lines of aspirations connecting carbon copy clones
Every artifact is marching like commodities of flesh and bone

Post-modern minds bleached blank and clean
Drawing pixelated lines
In duller shades that my eyes have ever seen

We're not defined by a blueprint if we re-write the plans
So will you paint paradise with the stroke of an artist's hand?
