Exoplanet Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Primal Directive
Bridge to a**lyst; access the secondary plasmic dataholds.
Now viewing all current planetary bodies.
Move to constrain your results to newest sentient life.
Scan the surface. Bring up vitals.

Local life thrived much quicker than anticipated.
We are pleased.

Focus shifted.
Save the organism through implied relocation.
Inferior understanding limits options and adaptation will be necessary for the specimen to survive.

As we map out this universe, all that can be seen is an ocean of emptiness.
This is primal directive.

Now we execute standard protocol.
As these cycles are nearing completion, initiate solar cleansing.
Move on, time never waited on its occupants.
Live on, by any means and every technology.

You have been defined.
2. Flourish
The rebirth of intelligent life will restore this planet's cosmic status.
As the surface draws into focus, every variance and nuance realized.

The simple birth.

Time is moving forward.
Elapse. Evolve. Expand. Adapt.
Adaptation runs parallel with surviving global conflict.

Sustained permanence proves imperfect existence, integrated.
Balance is reached between the parent star.

Endless motion.
Now the experience is long gone.

We won't forget it's entrancing stare, as long as we recall it's grip.

Stellar forces are keeping us alive.
3. Expire
The system is now free.
Witness our obsolescence, end sparks of life.
A new species can never fathom how quickly it will be extinct.

The system is now free from error.
The system revokes our viral form.
Silence becomes primary language.
Internal wave, undulate us home.

This system is now free from error.

Removed from the earth like a scourge with a delicate and yet powerful hand.

Idle boundaries allow admission to pull this world apart from the inside.

Equilibrium has been disturbed and the surface must collapse.
Compacted star, the only destination.
Unavoidable paradigm.

The radiant sun engraves its name.
Unavoidable paradigm.
4. Contact
For solutions, look to the sky.
Coincide with constellations.

I stand correct. Time stands exact.
Your time of departure has arrived.
Initiate this birth. Introvert this dimension.

Conception, use this apparatus.
Creator, you are all knowing,
I beg you, show me your vision.
My creation, stare into space.

Decipher your reality.

For solutions, look to the sky.
Coincide with constellations.

Consummation has begun and I am your guide.
Together we unlock the secrets of the stars.
Your signal is fading.

You are...
5. Advent
Now the inaugural exchange is done, we cannot see past the solar shroud.

Escape.

Calculating all viable routes.
This terrestrial rock will be consumed.
Deafening static is haunting me, the blackness is beckoning.
Countless samples of our world will be jettisoned into every direction that we have known of.

Our satellites have painted the sky with their ionic glass brushes.
The cryotubes will store our youth.

Desperation has set in and all we can do is run.

Feeling so alone, we set out to find other life.
The transport will be outfitted for a journey spanning future generations
6. Vessel
We have fabricated this ship to continue our legacy.
At the entrance the inscription reads: "We must not end".
We will not end.

The continuation of our species is riding on this one mission to another space.

Descendants on this planetary trip will never forget.

Storing the history books aboard this ship,
we ensure our memory. The memory.

They will feed on the images we create,
and will survive by our deeds.

As we wait for the architects to build our savior,
preparations have begun and time is short.

The vessel is now complete.
It holds all the hopes and dreams of those who wish for more.
What will we see when we get there?
Can we tell the two worlds apart?
7. Oscillator
This is passion personified into a rage
that is ripping and tearing at my body and soul,
thus leaving me weak.

I've had just about all I can take; this is driving me mad.
I've never felt so alive as I did,
watching the blood drop from your chest and into my hands.
This feels so incomplete without holding your still-beating heart in my hands.

The game has changed, from which we cannot return.
I'll watch you suffer and enjoy every moment of it
8. Axiom [Instrumental]
9. Exoplanet I : Egress
We are among the stars
Who are the operators of this boundless array?
The expedition takes us to our new home...

Systems re-allign

Speculation based on calculated reason leads me to believe we are not alone
Seeded by a greater race, we only hope to find the answers now embedded into the fabric of our minds
Are we moving forward?
Guided by the maps of progress

Imperfect perfections allow existence
10. Exoplanet II : Void
We long to feel our bodies outside centrifugal conditions.
An orderly solar system will outlast this guiding center system.

As we leave our galaxy, every certainty abandoned.
The referential lawns of man are lost, nothing is relative.

Cold and empty space surrounds and swells.

Time is moving at invariable speeds and our instruments are useless.

Oscillating obsession, beautiful apparatus.
These cycles put my mind at ease.

Bodies cannot sustain what this was built for.
The body cannot sustain what this was built for.
We worship oscillation, no other way.
11. Exoplanet III : Light
The microcosm is in exhibition.
terrestrial shaped into a magnificent realm.

Our colonial settlements are threatened by the sky.
The circling disk of ice watches quietly from a distance.
Refracting nebulaic dust has pierced the outer shell.

A blooming world is being ripped apart.
Planetary wide scorching from the focused light.

This extra solar vessel, orbiting the cluster.
Ejects the sample pods of the Eden passengers.
As for us, we must migrate.
This exoplanet has failed.
