Fragments of Form and Function Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. The Cleansing (4:29)
This day unfolds wrath beyond life
In front of your eyes we face the cycle
The ground trembles as elevations rise
The land gives way now we face the blast

Your final hour brings understanding that your gods right under you

This is the cleansing a global campaign exterminating the virus that is us
Cleansing a global sentence reigning with natural justice

This day unfolds for we cannot proceed
The time is now for the land to bleed
The global cleansing humankind fears
Ash ridden skies Armageddon nears

[pre-chorus]
[chorus]

The skies light up with fire designed to cleanse the land
Pyroclastic flow devours all within its path

[Greg solo]

Destroying mans empires the infection that is us
A conclusion to humanity our existence turns to dust

[Ryan solo]
[Greg solo]

This day of truth of humankind's demise exploits the powers of religions lies
Catastrophic eruptions rhyolite floods wash away the streets
2. The Renewal (4:19)
Cycles in motion continuously shifting conditions and shifting the seas
With life hosting life endlessly a complex design

The skies clear up for the cleansing has passed
The layers show signs of a violent past
That is proving defining the cycle the system
Theories based on single cell organisms

With energy water and oxygen
Is it possible to revive life again?
What was once spoiled is now fertile land
The question stands was this renewal planned?

[Ryan solo]

Complex reactions for this beast to thrive
Conditions of life adapting to design
Photosynthesis drive atmosphere stabilizes
Self-sustaining biological processes

[chorus]

[Greg solo]

Cycles in motion continuously shifting conditions and shifting the seas
With life hosting life endlessly a complex design renewing

[Greg solo]

Translating the land calculating the stages
Beating the clock surviving the ages
Staring so deep in the eyes of defeat

Knowing now that this phase will repeat
3. Across the Folded Line (4:25)
Inside a rational haze through an irrational gaze
The future in reverse a path to primitive days

Singularity returns as normality turns
Zero volume infinite density the hourglass of humanity burns

Mechanisms machines to mold our fate as we travel across the folded line

Backwards in time
Through a tear in the sky
Through the mirror universe
Staring back at familiar eyes

Symmetric in time
Across the folded line
Outside the horizon
Reform to original design

To re-write the past is to reform the future
Erase all account
Dissipating doubt

Parallel point of origin
Lines of time diverge
Endless chance to change the past
To make the lines converge

[pre-chorus]
[chorus]

[Ryan solo]

A spatial shortcut through electric lines of force
An exchange of space and time

[Ryan solo]

A linear shortcut through electric lines of force
An exchange of matter and time
4. The God Particle (5:24)
Accelerate the matter
Showers of debris
Defines a universe so empty
Dark matter
Super symmetry
Accounts for that which is unseen

Can electromagnetic collisions determine our creation?

At what expense
We prove our existence
Exhaust axons of belief
Machinery so immense
A universe with no dimensions

Enter the void
Black nothing
Tug the strings of mortality
Energetic
Devices prey
On the fabric of reality

[pre-chorus]
[chorus]

[Ryan solo]
[Greg solo]

Mankind pushes forward
Feeding on answers
Mankind pushes forward
For the truth
And understanding
Comprehending proof
Through light speed energized particles
5. Biomech - Vals No. 666 (7:27)
State of condition comatose burn victim
The deaf blind paralyzed blight
Pure decision to end the suffering of those
That cannot win the fight

So what'd you do, so what'd you do
With your god the fat you chewed
And from his silence to your faith infer
To split the hair and watch them suffer
And still, you say "you're playing god" "in the name of god"
"for the love of god" ...goddamn you

Opposition to prolonged life decision
By the man who calls himself right
Holier than thee, you go breaking your creed
Solely perceived on your false insight

[chorus]

As her eyesight fades
In the dark she'll curse your name
His hearing dissipates
Now in silence he'll curse your name
The man under a bullets reign
They will all curse your name
The child defaced by flame
They will all curse your name

[Ryan solo]
Time passes and the nation of god refuses time is wasted on a contradicting point
They taste their flexible morality and choke on the bitter reality

[Greg solo]
[Ryan solo]
[Greg & Ryan]

State of affliction derails your conviction
By the man at first who wasn't sold
Your position faces the opposition
Now a victim of your misguided mold
6. From Seed to Throne (5:16)
Animalistic behaviors triumph for we are here to procreate spreading seed
Sub conscious focus to dominate survival of the fittest.

The filth of the land is blinded by advancement and reality proceeds to drift away

We will fight we will destroy together we will consume the weak
Target in sight we will destroy together we will consume the weak

[Greg solo]

Fixed action patterns aggression seems to deem fit sex feeding fight or flight is integrated

[pre-chorus]

[chorus]

A species built to prevail the taste of blood entices you not knowing how to fail

[Ryan solo]
[Greg solo]
[Ryan solo]

Do you live in fear or create it?
[Ryan & Greg]

We are mastering the art of intimidation feeding the fire of confrontation
7. Atrophy of Hippocrates (4:37)
A prescription for their pocketbooks a lethal dose of agony
Cutting the throats of the wretched
Deranged and desensitized no remorse is seen in their eyes
Walking the path of the dead

Who are you to design the life we live?
Who are you to decline a further chapter?

Mass belief in a trusting system built by greed on gold foundations
Tasting the chance of an uncertain future
And now there profits to be made so now there's lives to be saved
This new found disease deserves a pill

[chorus]

[Rayn solo]

Those who control the knowledge controls the masses

[Greg solo]

Those who control the knowledge controls the flock

[Ryan solo]
[Greg solo]
8. Point of Disfigurement (4:03)
A war within the severs ties from all dissociation
Breathing in the chaos tenfold manipulation

The severity lost identity self- mutilation
Unstable unable to clear your head
The visions consume you of your loved ones dead

They say beauty's on your inside but your inside is disfigured
Born without a choice on how you're wired
They say beauty's on your inside but your inside is disfigured
Feeling the wrath of life you manufactured

Empty again regulation deficiency idealization
Past the point of self-control your actions read devaluation
9. A Cosmic Question (5:32)
Conjectures thrive,
Why are we alive?
Presenting an open mind
Intergalactic travel?
Dimensions?
A product of genetics?

What defines reality?
What defines a soul?
Where is the line of fathom
And how much truth do we know?

What lies beyond what we see?
These cosmic questions for all humanity
What lies beyond what we know and see?
These endless questions are for all entities

Too many signs in this life to ignore
What were the ancients telling us?
From Giza to galaxies
Exceeding comprehension
What's the truth on foreign life?

What defines reality?
What defines a soul?
Where is the line of fathom
And how much truth do we know?

What lies beyond what we see?
These cosmic questions for all humanity
What lies beyond what we know and see?
These endless questions are for all entities

Are the answers here
On this sphere we occupy?
In the land we're bleeding dry?
Is the truth disguised?
Should we look to the skies?
Would we find ties to global demise?

So many have vanished
At what cause and time?
Did civilizations face annihilation?
Infinite, no walls,
Just a blink of an eye,
When is the beginning and end
Of existence and time?

What defines reality?
What defines a soul?
Where is the line of fathom
And how much truth do we know?

What lies beyond what we see?
These cosmic questions for all humanity
What lies beyond what we know and see?
These endless questions are for all entities
10. Accelerated Evolution (8:09)
Chromosomes X and Y, divide and multiply
Constant revolving D.N.A.
Adapting to stimuli through vibrations of nuclei
Until humanity dies away

So now break it down into the finite compounds

Who could foresee when we crawled from the ocean
Those who could stand upon these shores?
We evolve from primate to man
From man to gods, from gods to dust

[Ryan solo]

Uncharted growth breeds in us new hope
Our phenotypic divergence
Genomes in mutation sparks a revelation
Beginnings of a species convergence

[pre-chorus]

[chorus]

[Greg solo]

See this double helix rise like a phoenix
From these ashes
Of humanities flaws

[Ryan solo]
[Ryan solo]
[Greg solo]
[Greg & Ryan]

So if they want to pit us against survival of the fittest
To see how we will make it through
To survive with distinction a species hell-bent on extinction
If only Darwin knew

[pre-chorus]

[chorus]

Who could foresee when the first cell was split that the process would lead to this
We evolve from primate to man from man to gods, from gods to dust
