lyrics

Everything has its tide
All things rise and fall
Such a fool to think you’re above it all
Don’t give anyone the blame
We have the same name
You’re responsible
For their rise to fame

Comment wars and camera whores
Just thank your lucky stars
Designer lives and perfect wives
We want you to believe in
Politics that just restrict
The mask they hide behind
Take away your liberties
The truth you will find

Don’t you know that you’re alone
Infinity has a price to be paid
And maybe it’s time
To see what we have, an illusion of control
We walk towards the lie
Making it our solid truth
As we ensure that the person inside will be defined by code

Can you feel the cold
Can you hear the lies
Digital junkie in paradise
We’ve become what we’ve always despised

No need for recollection
External memories
That exist outside your mind
You can be anyone you want to be
Live out your archaic fantasy

It’s easy to spill your guts
Flaming threads and trolling sluts
Books of faces, all my spaces
Glorifying your existence
All this online innuendo
Anonymous crescendo
Hatred to communicate
Real life will have to wait

Don’t you know that you’re alone
Infinity has a price to be paid
And maybe it’s time
To see what we have, an illusion of control
We walk towards the lie
Making it our solid truth
As we ensure that the person inside will be defined by code

Can you feel the cold
Can you hear the lies
Digital junkie in paradise
We’ve become what we’ve always despised

We do not stop, we will go
There is no rise, only falling
Do get lost in the system
Digital entity, death of identity
And only remembered by code
Can you feel the cold
Can you hear the lies

Can you feel the cold
Can you hear the lies

Don’t you know that you’re alone
Infinity has a price to be paid
And maybe it’s time
To see what we have, an illusion of control
We walk towards the lie
Making it our solid truth
As we ensure that the person inside will be defined by code







5. ORIGINS

This is the fire
In which I burn
Return to ashes
It is my turn
With the fire from my heart
I’ll burn the world
Like a phoenix arises
On the dawn of its return

Black and white fade into grey
As it slowly reveals the price you pay
Differing degrees
Dark and decadent
Reconcile the truth

The apotheosis of the sinners
It’s men becoming god

Blinded by his holy light
This ignorance is human blight
Salvation does not come without its ultimate price
Prepare for sacrifice

Reconnect and rediscover
Resurrect and rectify
The ancients have blessed me
With the origins of knowing why


As my paradigm shifts
My third eye makes me see
Images of untold intensity
Reconnect, rediscover
Resurrect and rectify

As we destroy
We do create
I am the cause
But not affected
I am the player instead of the pawn

Spiraling upwards
I feel my world change
Is it all around or just inside of me
Now I will dare you to believe
(Don’t be)
Don’t be dictated by anyone other than yourself

I shall take vengeance upon my enemies
And repay those who hate me
For whoever shed man’s blood
By man shall his blood be shed
For in the image of men
We made god

Reconnect and rediscover
Resurrect and rectify
The ancients have blessed me
With the origins of knowing why
As my paradigm shifts
My third eye makes me see
Images of untold intensity
Reconnect, rediscover
Resurrect and rectify

Knowing of the sanctity
The integrated illusion of fidelity
Never lose hope
Know that your truth has always been there
Don’t ever stop and stare

Don’t be dictated by anyone
Don’t be dictated by anyone but yourself
