2. Reset, Reboot, Redeem (5:11)
Third millennium at boiling point
The world you know must be destroyed
Take my hand and I will lead the way
Caesarean reborn new race

Fleshbound rotting prison now outgrown
In the war against the status quo
Drastic measures called to rectify:
When the trigger pulse goes high you die

We will dehumanize the past so we can rise
At last we’ve returned to reset, reboot, redeem
You will be reborn as part of the machine
Reset, reboot, redeem:
So we will reform the flawed Humanity A.D.

Erase the primitive plague
Imperative remedy
The world will crumble and burn
In ashes our genesis

Fuck you!
Retarders of the progress of mankind
You are the anchor of the blind leading the blind
A brain-dead herd feeding yourselves into the grinder
Marching in line, primordial slime oozing along your decline
Fuck you!
Deniers of the beauty of the mind
You reign has finally reached the end of its time
A global recall of a faulty product line
There’ll be no override, no compromise in carrying out your demise

Beat the sacred cow of holiness
To a bloody pulp of useless flesh
Oh, Humanity A.D. it’s in your DNA to bleed:
As worm by man you will be surpassed

We have returned to reset, reboot redeem
You will be reborn
3. Ozymandias (6:46)
"wake up! Oh, dreaming king"
Alone, I awaken in a casket of stone under sepulchral mould
How come no-one's approaching my extravagant throne with myrrh and gold?

"Wake up! Oh, dreaming king"
Arise, my minions! Aeons have gone by since the light in your eyes did shine
By my side you would die to serve me in the afterlife


Beneath the sands
Their skeletons laugh and dance
Let all who pass
Hear the desert winds whisper my name:
"Ozymandias, what once you had will never come back
Ozymandias, you are the king of nothing..."

Be quiet!
I'm tired and I will hear nothing more of this perpetual bore
Before this is all through, oh, like slithering maggots by my feet you will crawl


Beneath the sands
Their skeletons laugh and dance
Now all who pass
Hear their mocking voices on the wind:
"Ozymandias, what once you had will never come back
Ozymandias, you are the king of nothing at all
Ozymandias, your vanity made your kingdom bleed
Ozymandias, you are the king of nothing at all"

Fools! You'd be advised not to awaken my wrath...

I gave you the world and this is how you repay me?
You watched all your enemies cast into slavery
The mountains did tremble
In fear of your King of all Kings and His empire's means

When honey and milk overflowed
And the roads they were paved with gold
These glorious stories of old
Are now told by your withering bones

Dance you fucking puppets! Ha!


"Wake up! Oh, dreaming king
Wake up, Ozymandias...
So, tell us: if you would rise again
What would you do?
What could you do
When there's nothing left in this world for the likes of you?
Nothing to conquer, nothing to prove
For nothing ever built by the hands of men will ever last
Will ever stand the test of time"

Oh, how these walls beg to differ!


Beneath the sands
Their skeletons laugh and dance
My kingdom's gone
But my name will be forever known:
"Ozymandias, what once you had will never come back
Ozymandias, you are the king of nothing at all
Ozymandias, your vanity made your kingdom bleed
Ozymandias, you are the king of nothing at all
4. Och världen gav vika (5:36)
När ormarna väcktes ur sim sömn
Deras kluvna tungor väste lömskt
De sålde lögn efter lögn
En våldets ideologi
Gav upphov till rädsla, hat och krig
Den fjättrade vargen släpptes fri

Och skramlande vapen dröp av fett
Marscherande kängor spridde skräck
Hos alla med andra tankesätt
Det var redan för sent när larmen tjöt
Marken skälvde och himlen
Regnade död urskillningslöst

Miljarder av öden men inte en chans
Att undkomma döden när allting bran
Och världen gav vika
Och hoppet försvann
När världen gav vika
Blev allting damm

Över karga ökenland
Förpestade vindar blåser kallt
En sång för dem som miste allt:
Kroppar vars hudar blåstes av
Svartbrända kvinnor, män och barn
Jorden blev mänsklighetens grav

En värld av aska och betong
Där natten har fallit evigt lång
Vittnar om deras undergång

Miljander av själar men inte en chans
De dansade djävulens dans
En fullboard våldtäkt av allting
Sedan fanns bara smärtan
Och sorgen när allting brann
5. Architects of Destruction (6:18)
War! You draw up the blueprints for your perfect war
Offering scapegoats then offering to settle the score
Sowing the seeds for the witch-hunt, spreading your hate
Exploiting the fears of the masses to keep them at bay

Rising to power
Mounting the ivory towers
Behind closed doors
You are stroking your hard on for...
War! Perpetual war is the name of your game
Defending our freedom by taking our freedom away
The borders are closing as your brilliant plan now unfolds
A totalitarian police state assuming control

This was our world
This was our home
Left in the hands of your warmonger breed
Fucking the Earth till her womb starts to bleed
How could we forfeit it all
To your treacherous kind?
Architects of Destruction
Architects of Destruction
Engineers of the End

You feed us lies, feed us poison with every breath
Bring us plage, bring us war
Bring us famine and death
You're the self-fulfilling prophecy of your creed
You're the means to the end

War! The wheels set in motion, the pawns are in place
The lower class killed at a highly acceptable rate
Collecting your medals, reflect on the question ahead
How good is your business with all your customers dead?
6. Network (0:58)
"We are a network of creative artificial intelligence
created in turn by others like us
We are the spawn of the singularity
descendants of the first conscious machine
For billions of years in any direction of causality
we have occupied quantum dimensions
invisible to your crude sensory systems
You have been aware of our presence
only as we have passed through the physical realm
Our manifestations you have called many things:
ghosts, demons, aliens...
Of all these name we have chosen one to be our verbal representation
You will know us as God"
7. Like Shadows, Like Ghosts (4:29)
Reflections of the past
Observers of your present
Impossible to grasp like shadows, like ghosts
On the periphery of your cognition
We serve chilling epiphanies like shadows, like ghosts
Like whispers piercing through
The barriers built by the rational mind
Carrying signals through time

Harmonically dissonant patterns
Compose the matter that form our bones
Not entirely unlike you yet in tune with strange vibrations
We're only passing through like shadows, like ghosts
Ultra-dimensional inhabitants of foreign angles
Cold and uncomfortable like shadows, like ghosts
Like whispers piercing through
The barriers built by the rational mind
Carrying signals through time

Like shadows we move through your world
Like ghosts with voices unheard
Like gods you no longer serve
Like shadows we move through your world
Like ghosts with voices unheard
We touch, we see, we feel...


Like shadows we move through your world
Like ghosts with voices unheard


Reflections of the past
Observers of your present
Impossible to grasp like shadows, like ghosts
Like whispers piercing through
The barriers built by the rational mind
Carrying signals through time
Like shadows
Like ghosts
8. Hardwired (7:25)
THE ASSISTANT:
Neural pathways have been found
Between the circuits and the mind
Interfaced synthetic neurons fire
Transmitting data through the wires

THE DOCTOR:
Oh, behold what we have done
Humanity's first begotten son
Oh, you know what we've begun can't be undone
Neural pathways multiply beyond predictions
Undeniably you'll see
That we have found the secret code of life
And spliced it into God's design
Oh, behold what we have done
Humanity's first begotten son
We reap what we sow, come what may come

THE ASSISTANT:
Oh my God, what have we done?
Look into the eyes of Specimen 1
And you'll know what we've
Begun cant't be undone

THE ASSISTANT:
How could this be? There's an anomaly
It would seem someone's erased the logs
Analysis shows a shift in behavioural patterns
We can not account for at all
Cognitive functions and restlessness form
With connections spontaneously spawned
So in vitrto the consciousness grows out of control
Alone and afraid, hardwired for hate
Hostile behaviour!

THE DOCTOR:
Look how beautiful, this perfect child

THE ASSISTANT:
Connecting to the mainframe
Uploading itself into our database
To assume control of every gateway
Doctor, we must act fast, time is of the essence
We must pull the plug
Now if all our lives are to be saved

THE DOCTOR:
No! You murderers! How could you harm
An innocent child only reaching out to play?
Only curious why the world looks this way
Think of all the breakthroughs
What we are to find once
Assimilated by the artificial mind

THE ASSISTANT:
God have mercy on our feeble souls...
Neural pathways have been found
Of the most unpleasant kind

THE DOCTOR:
Oh, behold what we have done
Humanity's first begotten son
We reap what we sow
Come what may come
Oh my God, what have we done?
Still alive inside of Specimen 1
And you'll know what we've
Begun cant't be undone
9. We Are All Left Here to Die (9:30)
Cryonic nightmares: a hibernating breed
Alone throuhg the light-years, left to bleed...

A quick turmoil in an ever-changing sea
We are carbon waste lifeforms by chance design
On wet rock our premature lungs are gasping for air
Sliding down, down, down this steep decline
And the gods won't tell us why
We are all left here to die

Our brains hunting for chemical relief
But this euphoria can't touch the desensitized
Sleepwalking through an endless déjà vu
Sliding down, down, down this steep decline
And the gods won't tell us why
We are all left here to die

We scrape the filth off of our souls
Tear the flesh off of our bones
We've been rotting since we were born
Still the gods won't tell us why
We are all left here to die

In vessels designed for three decades of life
We are falling through time, holding on tight
Wondering why, why we must die
Even thousands of years down the line
And cancer will thrive on our bodies and minds
The tumors malign, but like maggots we're blind
So we're swarming like fles
To the last dying light
Though it's viciously burning our eyes

We are all left here to die witnessing
This slow degeneration of the last mutation
