Submitted by level 휘리언
1. The Illusionist (4:31)
[Music: P. Nilsson]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

As an outcast I paced defeat
Seeking comfort in this painful retreat
Made an oracle against my will
Word spread of miraculous skills

Premonitions call my name
I once doubted them all when they came
Now I embrace it and I'll never be the same

Transfixed in the desert sands
Take a look at my once empty hand
See the rose that appears so real
Just like the one you saw in your dreams

Those who call me avatar
Know not what they're looking for
They just feed their flames with miracles
Just so you know
If you bathe within my light
You diminish your own might
The illusionist in everyone

As an outcast I faced defeat
Seeking comfort in this painful retreat
Made an oracle against my will
Word spread of miraculous skills

Premonitions call my name
I once doubted them all when they came
Now I embrace it and I'll never be the same

Those who call me avatar
Know not what they're looking for
They just feed their flames with miracles
Just so you know
If you bathe within my light
You diminish your own might
Illusionist in everyone

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

What I say and what I do was once potential
Sprung from the infinite place that dictates the seen

[Solo: P. Nilsson]

Those who call me avatar
Know not what they're looking for
They just feed their flames with miracles
Just so you know
If you bathe within my light
You diminish your own might
Illusionist in everyone

In everyone!
2. Slaves To The Subliminal (5:04)
[Music: J. Kjellgren & C. Alvestam]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

Eyes transfixed at flashing visuals
Looking without seeing
Subject for subliminal attacks
Subconscious registrations

Efficient manipulation methods
The embedded distorters
One step in the mass hypnosis
On a monumental scale

Vile embrace of the one who beholds
Robbed of thoughts and of feelings

Draining dry the very mind
All we know is what they show
Never seen - the chains that binds
Lies enslave you!
Registrations that will burn our spirits hollow
Making sure the blind stays blind

We are slaves to the subliminal

No choice to accept or reject
Heading straight for the source
Perceived below normal awareness
Suck in the embedded additions

Eyes transfixed at flashing visually
Looking without seeing

Subject for subliminal attacks
Subconscious registrations

Vile embrace of the one who beholds
Robbed of thoughts and of feelings

Draining dry the very mind
All we know is what they show
Never seen - the chains that binds
Lies enslave you
Registrations that will burn our spirits hollow
Making sure the blind stays blind

Drugged docile by the embeds
They enter below the threshold
Intricate manipulation technique
Promotes robotic behavior
Consume according to fabricated needs
Command the subconscious
Follow all the shallow standards
Programmed instinct response

[Solos: J. Kjellgren, P. Nilsson]

Draining dry the very mind
All we know is what they show
Never seen - the chains that binds

Registrations that will burn our spirits hollow
Making sure the blind stays blind

Enslave you
3. Mind Machine (3:54)
[Music: P. Nilsson & C. Alvestam]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

All free will is gone
Automatic knowledge
Humans lead in leashes
Silent, untrue
All are subjects to
Automated liars
Broadcast feelings through
Machines that makes you

Wither away
Death of the soul
Indoctrinated in false grace

Bio-machinery
Mind and machinery
Fear now fuels the system
Bio-machinery

Target is the world
Structuring the madness
Terminating ancient
Concepts of truth
Power structure comes
Silent weapons fired
Quiet wars in minds
The damage is done

Wither away
Death of the soul
Indoctrinated in false grace

Bio-machinery
Mind and machinery
Fear now fuels the system
Bio-machinery

[Solo: P. Nilsson]

All hope that died must rise anew
By facing the passage of time
All that we've known was bound to drown
Before we could wake

Bio-machinery
Mind and machinery
Fear now fuels the system
Bio-machinery
4. Pitch Black Progress (3:26)
[Music: J. Kjellgren]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

This landscape mechanical
Well-oiled black machinery
Bio-driven computers
Programmed for slave labour

For slave labour!

Structure made in urban design
Kills the evolution of the mind
I marching on a dead end path
With misplaced concentration

It's a pitch-black progress
It's a dead end process
It's a pitch-black progress
No more, no less

Digital temples monitor the population
Supplying the masses with what they see fit
Programming digital dreams for the consumers
A zombie nation devoid of improvisation

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

Electro-hypnotic messages
Downloaded directly to the brain
Endless chanting subliminal
Hammers down the-will to resist
Progressing into a pitch black future
Leaving behind an a**logue past
Promoting all op their new ways
Whatever the cost may be

[Solo: P. Nilsson]

It's a pitch-black progress
It's a dead end process
It's a pitch-black progress
No more, no less

Introducing a pitch-black approach
Taste the horns of the future
Swallow the sulphur of the new order
To resist is to non-exist
5. Calculate The Apocalypse (4:01)
[Music: P. Nilsson]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

Awaiting a cosmic collision
The igniting of the visible world
Unpredictable asteroid impact
Monumental blastwave unleashed

Imminent undoing of this world
Unveils tragedy mixed with relief
As we give in to the end

Awaiting the atmospheric entry
Calculate the crater formation
The massive fireball expansion
Lost to thermal radiation

Imminent undoing of this world
Unveils tragedy mixed with relief
As we give in to the end

Estimate time of impact
Calculate the fatal fact
Estimate the cataclysm
Calculate the apocalypse

Technology
Facing defeat
An industry tainted with deceit
Activity
Done secretly
Chosen survivors find security

[Solos: P. Nilsson, J. Kjellgren]

Imminent undoing of this world
Unveils tragedy mixed with relief
As we give in to the end

Estimate time of impact
Calculate the fatal fact
Estimate the cataclysm
Calculate the apocalypse
6. Dreaming 24/7 (4:11)
[Music: P. Nilsson & C. Alvestam]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

I can hear the colours
Hear what they say
I can taste the sounds
Voice of the soul sings inside

Dreaming
All the time
Deep in slumber
The expression of the soul
In the dreaming zone
I shall find
Illusive minds never wake

I'm lost inside a dreaming lie
Never awake (awake)
I'm seeing through another's eyes as time goes on
(As Time goes on)
I've always known that when my daydream fades away
I never leave the cold that is the dreaming tide

I can taste while dreaming
Wish I could stay
Inside my head I just know
I've been lead astray

Dreaming
All the time
Deep in slumber
The expression of the soul
In the dreaming zone
I shall find
Illusive minds never wake

I'm lost inside a dreaming lie
Never awake (awake)
I'm seeing through another's eyes as time goes on
(As time goes on)
I've always known that when my daydream fades away
I never leave the cold that is the dreaming tide

[Solo: P. Nilsson]

Now I move on
To the subconscious states unknown
Dream world now gone, I am shown
Why I dream at night and on and on
Waking through my intuition, this path I must know

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

Dreaming
All the time
Deep in slumber
The expression of the soul
In the dreaming zone
I shall find
Illusive minds never wake

I'm lost inside a dreaming me
Never' awake (awake)
I'm seeing through another's eyes as time goes on
(As time goes on)
I've always known that when my daydream fades away
I never leave the cold that is the dreaming tide

Dreaming tide!
7. Abstracted (3:25)
[Music: J. Kjellgren]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

Darkness falls, light descending
From the sky and towards the ground

Electric presence
Prolonged strobe flash
Rays of light
Now shatters the night

Abstracted shape
Abstracted one
High voltage bolt was aimed at the head and chest

One taken
Lost to the skies
Gone, taken away
Five days absent
The manhunt fails
None can explain
The course of events

Abstracted shape
Abstracted one
High voltage bolt was aimed at the head and chest
Abducted soul
Abducted mind
Bright bolts of energy slays reality

[Solo: P. Nilsson]

Departure
Strange sights
Chaos within me
Departure
Bright lights
I can't believe my eyes

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

Electric presence
Prolonged strobe flash
Rays of light
Now shatters the night

Abstracted shape
Abstracted one
High voltage bolt was aimed at the head and chest
Abducted soul
Abducted mind
Bright bolts of energy slays reality

Departure
Strange sights
Chaos within me
Departure
Bright lights
I can't believe my eyes

Darkness falls, light descending
From the sky and towards the ground
8. The Kaleidoscopic God (7:09)
[Music: J. Kjellgren, P. Nilsson & C. Alvestam]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

The lifeless worlds come alive
Gathered here both low and high
Show me sights I dreamt at night
I shall return with the dreaming tide

As above, so below
Microcosm is macrocosm
Anything I visualize
Takes place for real

The formless takes the shape I want
I am the decoder of wavelengths
Unobserved it is but nothing
But the potential for everything

As above, so below
Microcosm is macrocosm
Anything I visualize
Takes place for real

Stray into the silence
Stray into my soul
Stray beyond the shallow entombment
Fate - forms a complex kaleidoscope

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

Planets interact within my head
Universes moved with the will
Anything I imagine occurs
Manifestation is a fact

Stray into the silence
Stray into my soul
Stray beyond the shallow entombment
Fate - forms a complex kaleidoscope

The outside appears to move
But never really does
The mind is in movement
Unknowing, unaware
Earth appears in my head

Does the rules of manifestation apply
At such dense place
In such soulless waste

Travel forth light-years away
Beyond the form of night and day
Kaleidoscopic shapes at play
Colours sparkle in every way

[Solos: J. Kjellgren, P. Nilsson, J. Kjellgren, P. Nilsson]

As above, so below
Microcosm is macrocosm
Anything I visualize
Takes place for real

Stray into the silence
Stray into my soul
Stray beyond the shallow entombment
Fate - forms a complex kaleidoscope

The outside appears to move
But never really does
Earth appears in my head
Does the rules of manifestation apply
9. Retaliator (4:13)
[Music: J. Kjellgren & C. Alvestam]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

Behold essence of unearthly
Holographic entity
Shape shifting being within me
Defying the eyes

I emerge from within
Cold-blooded design
Rising terror
Towards mankind

Retaliator
Retaliation's coming
Retaliator
Inter-dimensional

Beyond five sense reality
Reptilian frequency
Temples and shrines that you see here
Were built in my name

I shall bring the end
To all of your kind
Faithful servants
Prepare to be devoured

Retaliator
Retaliation's coming
Retaliator
Inter-dimensional
Prime desecrator
Fall to the new world order
Death generator
Servants and fiends alike

[Solo: P. Nilsson]

Your prevailing reality defines me
As any folklore being

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

Prime desecrator
Fall to the new world order
Death generator
Servants and fiends alike

Your revelation or your damnation
Either way I bring you death

Prime desecrator
Fall to the new world order
Death generator
Servants and fiends alike
10. Oscillation Point (4:04)
[Music: J. Kjellgren & C. Alvestam]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

I've always known It is too late
The signs burn deep in my soul
End of the waiting comes; I'm taking my life
I've always known it is too late
I gladly reap what I sow
So now I bid you all farewell

Blade in hand I do hesitate,
Terror can be read in my face
I keep forgetting that there is nothing to fear

Caged inside
I cannot seem to end the battles
Breaking down, I worship the insane

I've always known it is too late
The signs burn deep in my soul
End of the waiting comes
I'm taking my life

I loathe all the things I see
What you feel doesn't matter to me
All these words and still there is nothing to hear

Caged inside
I cannot seem to end the battles
Breaking down, I worship the insane

[Solo: P. Nilsson]

Churning, burning
With frustration
Churning I am
Turning, drowned in sickness
Twisting disease
Swirling fever
And frustration
Vile infection
Churning within
Burning conflicts
Enter death

Caged inside
I cannot seem to end the battles
Breaking down, I worship the insane

Caged inside
This world knows its torture tactics
Born to pain but never again, no
11. The Path of Least Resistance (4:29)
[Music: J. Kjellgren & C. Alvestam]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

The path of choice optimal
The labyrinth unsolved
Haunting the complex of these halls
Adrift upon the massive waves
This godforsaken maze
Suddenly returning to the haze

Guiding star shine bright tonight
And light up my path
Time has come to know myself

Least resistant path
Burning signals I'm finding
Least resistant path
Things to be said and done
I burn with the flames
Float with the uncontrolled waters
My soul flies with the breeze

Perplexed in vast complexity
Ghost in the machinery
Seeking the exit constantly
Facing a hopeless endeavour
Being one's own saviour
Lost without a guiding star

Guiding star shine bright tonight
And light up my path
Time has come to know myself

Least resistant path
Burning signals I'm finding
Least resistant path
Things to be said and done
I burn with the flames
Float with the uncontrolled waters
Solid as the earth
My soul flies with the breeze

With every corner turned my heart sinks
A mirage lights my hope again
That silhouette could be anything
But I'm beyond the realm of reason

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

Least resistant path
Burning signals I'm finding
Least resistant path
Things to be said and done
I burn with the flames
Float with the uncontrolled waters
Solid as the earth
My soul flies with the breeze

Guiding star shine bright tonight
And light up my path
Time has come to know myself
The path of least resistance
12. Carved in Stone (5:29)
[Music: J. Kjellgren& C. Alvestam]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

You're never alone
Still you're on your own
You cannot see the light
Although you face the sun

The things you see
Are filtered through belief so strong
Passed on through DNA and society
I could never believe that the veil
I saw just came from my mind
The illusion is gone

A swarming pattern of frequencies
Is what this would be?
Without the decoders called the eyes
Bent into shape as thoughts define what you see
Losing its true form to human misery

Wait; resist the ones who feed upon your sorrow
Those who whisper lies to bring the veil in sight
Fate is not the guilt and failures of tomorrow
Fixed and carved in stone,
There s nothing of the kind

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

You cannot really see me in this earthly dome
So avoid judging me, stay silent
Keep in mind that all is veiled
Only fragments of your mind
Now change has begun

[Solo: P. Nilsson]

Came from my mind
The illusion is gone

A swarming pattern of frequencies
Is what this would be?
Without the decoders called the eyes
Bent into shape as thoughts define what you see
Losing its true form to human misery

Wait; resist the ones who feed upon your sorrow
Those who whisper lies to bring the veil in sight
Fate is not the guilt and failures of tomorrow
Fixed and carved in stone,
There s nothing of the kind
13. Deviate From the Form (5:27)
[Music: P. Nilsson]
[Lyrics: H. Ohlsson]

I transcend my earthly form
Through some questions never asked before
Question the need to be a machine
That responds automatically

Some words will trigger certain acts
Just one of the commandments we have learnt
Some acts will trigger certain states
I think it's time to alter the game

I'm changing
You're changing
We're changing from within

Deviate from the form of nothing
Deviate from the norm to something
Deviate from the form of nothing
I deviate, farewell to the tribe

I receive clues that lead me
To answers never seen before
And find the final piece
In the puzzle of reality

Some words will trigger certain acts
Belief in limitations we have learnt
Some acts will trigger certain states
I'm taking back what I gave away

I'm changing
You're changing
We're changing from within

Deviate from the form of nothing
Deviate from the norm to something
Deviate from the form of nothing
I deviate, farewell to the tribe

Soul volcano
Now erupting
Lava swallows
What used to be
Soul tsunami
Overflowing
Overriding
Reality

[Solos: P. Nilsson, J. Kjellgren]

Soul volcano
Now erupting
Lava swallows
What used to be
Soul tsunami
Overflowing
Overriding
Reality

Deviate from the form of nothing
Deviate from the norm to something
Deviate from the form of nothing
I deviate, farewell to the tribe
