1. Obsolete Beings (5:34)
Scrolling down in paradise
Absorbed by the next device
You live alone, we live alone
Castaway and insecure
A wonder world that isn't yours
The dream is gone, your time is done

Become useless, recycle yourself
Or be replaced by something else
You must improve but you can't follow
So there you are, straight in the bin, you'll go!
So there you are, down the crusher, you'll blow!
So there you are... No more!

Over-obsessed with comments feed
Distracted by some silly scenes
You are someone, like everyone
Hypnotised and plastified
You might forget to live your life
Wasting your days, expiring date

Out of function, no longer used
And your model discontinued
Signs of the time are starting to show
So there you are, stacked on the shelf, you'll go!
There you are, smashed to pieces, you'll blow!
There you are... No more!

Being a brand all of your life
You're being used to advertise
A follower goes with the flow
So there you are, no one will ever know!
So there you are, no one will ever know!
There you are... No more!

A new era has arrived
Is there some use for mankind?
The time is still ruled by the sky
2. The End of Dormancy (7:42)
Uncertain sky, ocean of silence
Nothing in sight, only storms in the distance
Gear up, meeting point at zero hour
It looks like this is far from over

Signals coming from deep space giant void
Magnetic shields are ready to deploy
Unknown waves are rumbling stronger
Confirmed, this comes from underwater

I always thought this could be real
Always assumed it was near
Not having a single doubt
Not having a single thought

The wake! This is the end of dormancy
The wake! Something from the bottom of the sea

These kinds of things can't be revealed
Who would have thought? Who would believe?
Fear of the unknown will stay on
Because no god has ever saved anyone

The wake! From the seabed underneath
The wake! millions of years of dormancy
The wake! Recharged by the waste of energy
The wake! This thing will change our destiny

Speakers: To all vessels, keep you position
Chants: Ahh! Ahh! Ahh! Ahh!
Speakers: All units, ready to counter-attack
Chants: Ahh! Ahh! Ahh! Ahh!

Under the surface, gravitational waves
Abyssal hurricane from the alien base
Trans-fictional sky engulfed in flames
Too late to retreat, too amazed to relate

Time is stretching, movements divide
The course of events suddenly modified
Melted in the structure, bodies petrified
Staring at me asking for help before they die

Here I am laying on a bed
Some kind of device over my head
Where am I? Some place I've never seen
Some hidden secret facilities

Blurred shadows keep asking me if I remember
What happened that day, about a mission failure
Should I pretend that I don't know?
I have the feeling it is time to go... GO!

I have to escape and I'll tell you why
I have to escape and I'll tell you why
I'm the only one who survived!
I'm the only one who survived!
They're after me...! They're gonna get me!
This is what happens, when... You know too much!
3. Orb Confusion (6:00)
Woke up this morning
And maybe I should be afraid
Weird news are leaking
Red flags arise in my brain
Strange things occurred far out in the deep space
Ocean disaster, a mission that failed

Forecasts of conflict
Frenetic panic, all hell breaks loose
Cosmic polemic
High madness on the move
Into the spiral, agreed or denied
Fast rotation in a vortex of lies

Now! What should I do?
Where do I go?
How to escape?
Now! Orb confusion!

Spreading in no time
The viral news are still on
Whole cities on fire
Chaotic religious breakdown
Leaders of nations are hiding away
Maybe the fate of the world is at stake?

Now! What should I do?
Where do I go?
How to escape?
Now! Orb confusion!

No more incredulity
No more false reality

I always knew
This could be the truth

Now it's undeniable
Now it's irreversible

It's not a lie
It fits so right

It's scary, it's crazy
Scary! Crazy!
Social structures falling down
4. Iconspiracy (5:15)
In the desert of unknown tales
Gold temples of war disgrace
From the secret vault of Holy Power
Magnified field blasting tower
Psychotronic weapons are being used on you!
All of you!

You'll never notice the effects of the waves
But soon enough it will reach into your brain
The frequencies will make you fit in a frame
You will become a modulated social slave

Aim for masses
Skyward
Inner access
Mindwarp

Deep inside an obscure tunnel
Circling around an underground channel
Machiavellian accelerator
All controlled by the lords of terror
Psychotronic weapons are daily use on you!
Yes it's true!

Aim for masses
Skyward
Inner access
Mindwarp

Why?
Such a coincidence, no evidence, nor signs of a crime
Why?
Of course no one survived, witness suicides, all proofs denied
Why?
An Iconspiracy, why can't you see, I'm blind but I foresee
Why?!!

Lies!
Everything's rigged from within
You'll never win, and you don't decide
Lies!

Another act of god triggered by satellite
Instant starvation and the world to divide
A new imposter got elected overnight
But Psychotron keeps us focused on our lives

Aim for masses
Skyward
Inner access
Mindwarp
5. Spherical Perspective (7:41)
This nice spot that I found
Connected to the ground
I'm staying here all night
Staring at the open sky
Till my eyes... Bleed!
Then my soul starts to fly
Far from the chaos of this life
All these calls seem unheard
For the lost cause of this world!

This forest where I hide
Away from the city lights
It's where I meet my peers
Those who are no longer here
Till my heart... Bleeds!
For so long, I've been out there
Being strong in despair
But tonight, I'll get lost
Till my bones turn to dust!

Hard to be heard
No one is listening
You can't be seen
If the sun refuses to shine

Why should I be?
If this life has no meaning
I'm travelling far away out there
Through the sky deep in my head
I escape!

Feelings get hurt
And no care is given
Such a lonely star
In darkness confined

Look up at the sky
And no care is given
Such a lonely star
In darkness confined

For so long, I've been out there
Being strong in despair
But tonight, I'll get lost
Till my bones turn to dust
...tonight
6. Event Horizon (6:10)
Water keeps on rising and there's no solution
Miles of ice fade away, what a correlation
Global mess refugees in a mass mutation
Our own enemies are lost in misconception

Micro-bacterias resurrect from their sleep
Frozen deep in the past, heat is all they need
Emissions in the air, a prehistorical disease
Spreading our everywhere, a virus is released

Tell me what it's like
Not knowing where you'll be sleeping at night
Aren't you afraid?
Knowing this world will neve be the same
Now it's too late
And we are to blame
irreversible process is engaged!

This is way beyond, way beyond, way beyond
Speculations
Way beyond, way beyond, way beyond
All predictions

Since your birth
A microchip implanted under your skin
Where you are, what you do
They sure know everything
No privacy, no dignity, no self whatsoever
This entity, identity, you're a barcode number

Does it feel right?
Preconceived future is ruling your life
Oh! What a shame
In the name of progress we fall in disgrace
It's a new phase
We have to face
Irreversible process is engaged!

This goes way beyond, way beyond, way beyond
Expectations
Way beyond, way beyond, way beyond
Any fiction
Way beyond...

AHH!
The human nature always needs more power
Only cares for now, don't look any further
Again, again, again, again
AHH!
These human failures, born to overtake
Steal from brothers, repeat the same mistakes
Again, again, again, again
AHH!

Tomorrow is so grey
Doomy sky, dark landscape
Evil eyes, ravaged face
Dead zone signs, minds encaged
As we go, the level rises
The tension grows, the world is divided
The call for war, decisions made
In space we burst without a trace
7. Always Moving (5:11)
In my inner galaxy
Is there something left for me?
Through the mirror there i go
Always moving
As we speak, the end is near
You're farther than you appear
Gaining seconds in your time
Always moving

Fast! In a maze of your own
Passed! Through the gate
Fast! In your act you have shown
Passed! What it takes

In my future memory
Side by side, seperately
We both live on layers of chrome
Always moving
As we meet our final days
The spinning core disintegrates
In raging speed we'll soon collide
Always moving

Dragged by the sun
Steady on the run
Caught in a race
Unlock a new space
Purged in a course
Driven by the force
Time is our mind
What we left behind

In a coil, ride the void, past destroyed
Spirit interface
Laser souls, crack the molds,
Distance folds, depth illuminates
Neutralized, sterilized, purified, energy remains
In the crust, from the lost
All across, life regenerates

To the ones, in the realm of the dead
You'll be forever living in my head
To the ones, those I miss the most
We'll be together lost in the unknown
To the ones...

Fast! In a maze of your own
Passed! Through the gate
Fast! In your act you have shown
Passed! What it takes
8. Sonic Mycelium (12:24)
This nice spot that I found
Connected to the ground
I'm staying here all night
Staring at the open sky
Till my eyes... Bleed!

Now, what should I do?
Where do I go?
How to escape?
Now!

You will never switch him off
When you're hypnotized
Don't you dare to call his bluff
He's well organized...

In a coil, ride the void, past destroyed
Spirit interface
In the crust, from the lost
All across, life regenerates!

The wake! The wake!
Look up at the sky
See me passing by
The wake! The wake!
I'm waving goodbye
Enjoying the ride

You live alone, we live alone!
The dream is gone
Your time is done!

In the desert of unknown tales
Gold temples of war disgrace
From the secret vault of Holy Power
Magnified field blasting tower!

Fast! In a maze of your own
Passed! Through the gate

Hard to be heared
No one is listening
You can't be seen
If the sun refused to shine!
Feelings get hurt
And no care is given
Such a lonely star
in darkness confined!

Dragged by the sun
Steady on the run
Caught in a race
Unlock a new space

In my inner galaxy
Is there something left for me?
Through the mirror there i go
Always moving...
Always moving...

Scrolling down in paradise
Castaway and insecure
A wonder world that isn't yours
You might forget to live your life

This is the end of dormancy
From the seabed underneath
Millions of years of dormancy
This thing will change our destiny

This is way beyond
Way beyond, way beyond
Way beyond
Way beyond, way beyond
This goes way beyond
Way beyond, way beyond
Way beyond
Way beyond, way beyond

Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh!
It's scary, it's crazy
Scary! Crazy!
Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh!
It's scary, it's crazy
Scary! Crazy!

A new era has arrived
To the ones!
Is there some use for mankind?
To the ones!
The time is still ruled
By the sky, the sky...
To the ones!
