Track Name: Subversion
Atop the throne of thrones rests the charlatan
Indoctrinating the masses with false hope
Contaminating group consciousness with irrationality
Widespread materialism sieges compassion
Desire for status discolors humility
Scattered outcry clouded
Investigative thought is demonized
The curious reduced to the diabolic
Disparaging the skeptic and remunerating the unquestioning
A nation of sheep birthed in the womb of the entitled
The masked tyrant executes his will
Mercilessly against the undying shadow
Unyielding immolation of the scientific mind
Violating and despoiling belletristic virtue
An ever-present march toward imminent dysphoria
Massacre cloaked in the name of progression
Sporadic resurgence kindles withered fortune
Sanguine aspirations persevere in the face of unequivocal collapse
Track Name: Falsification
A baleful prophecy brought to fruition
A fulfillment of greed and utter contempt
Egregious deception of the meek
Reproachful denizens look on in despair
Shivering soma and burning eyes
Vigilant despondency breeding antipathy
Indexed transgressions shape archived odium
Generating omnipresent lucidity
Volatile intent constructs abhorrent tactics
Awakening subdued war
A blueprint for strategic annihilation
Scorned populace justified by egocentric sequelae
Subsisting beneath guiltless stares awaits unparalleled malevolence
Principled assault on the morally corrupt
Superlative insurrection of unrelenting assailment
Fortified by transpersonal unity
Coercive exile of the supreme faction
Establishment of equitable dominion
Track Name: Transmutation
An unexpected unification of forces
United toward a common end
The resurgence of freedom and sovereignty
Feeding the fires of vengeance
Stoking the flames of passion
A once dominant body will soon fear mass insurgency
Echoing calls resound
Catalysts for progress
Transpiring iconoclasm
Annihilating false idols
Complete metamorphosis of control
A realm forever altered by the hand of man
Fabricating cenotaphs for obsolete ideals
A domain without constraint
Feeding the fire of vengeance
Stoking the flames
Propagating free thought and unhindered invention
Primordial divination realized
Track Name: Xenos
A sudden change in levels
Altering my subjective experience
My eyes dilate and my consciousness expands
Unexpected brightness consumes my vision (clouded visions)
I no longer feel myself
A journey begins
Direction no longer exists
Navigating by intrigue alone
A world once well known is now a mystery
Transcending schematic cognition
Awareness transforming
Evolution of knowledge
Vital reflections
Forsaken principles
An idea is born from darkness
Blazing a path to universal truth
Linear progression interrupted
Track Name: Enigma
Cold rationality warmed in a chemical hearth
Inseparable pathways
Devoid of any indication of conjoinment
Longing for inclusion
Shattered by epiphany
Parallel images shifting in revolution
Vital idiosyncrasies exposed
Converting cybernetic loops
Autocatalytic networks
From abiogenic origins
Spontaneous generation of life
From abiogenic origins
A system of immense complexity
Autocatalytic networks initiate primordial progression
Organic anomaly of incalculable proportions
Chronological chaos becomes unmasked
Beautifully veiled
Infinitely enigmatic
Parallel images shifting in revolution
Cosmic rays separate organic matter
Resonating orbital patterns shifting in revolution
Track Name: Infinite
A labyrinth of existential succession
Interwoven correlation of elements
Forming a gestalt of untold supremacy
Galactic sequences
Unbound from the physical realm
A vast expanse of information is swiftly granted
A century's enlightenment in mere moments
From the zenith an extragalactic observer watches
The majestic unification of ideals and reality
New sentient beings formulate by neural activity
Integrity of biochemical structure compromised by solar winds
Obliterate the heliosphere
In the mind of one live the minds of all
Tides diverged through singularity
A once luminous realm is reduced to penumbra
Track Name: Impasse
Organic molecules permeate our existence
An abundant source of building blocks spreads life across the universe
Where did we come from?
How far will we go?
A spark to ignite the building blocks of life
A sea of energy sweeps the cosmic void
Mutations trying to defy the natural order of the evolutionary process
Consciousness spreading in the cosmos
The vastness of our knowledge compressed down, one idea
All trust falls away
Accept that there's no meaning in this life
Reality of our place in this universe
Except that there's no meaning in this life
Reality of our place in this universe
Accidental evolution
Accidental evolutionary progress that's been stretched out over billions of years
They cling to their ideals with no room to err
Blinded by their absolute assurance
The passion for knowledge will come again
Track Name: Antithesis
Wake yourself from endless slumber
Forced down to your knees in silent agreeance
Now wake up, you arise
Behold the scene that stands before you
The stars align perfectly on this night
By grand design with delusions of reference
Cognitive distortions of reality
Suspension of philosophy
We will traverse the span of the entire universe
We would explore the planes of extradimensional space
We'll never make it unless we abandon irrational beliefs
We must abandon irrational beliefs
You can only dream, you can never feel
Captivated by malevolent events, the metaphysical
Swimming in an ocean of the faithful and reverent
Vision obscured by intangible forces
Transcending pragmatism
Survival mechanisms, coping with existence
Conclusive resignation
Release them from their idle illusions
Reviving their senses, abstracted
Synapses deconstructing, transmitting new consciousness
We must abandon irrational beliefs
Intellectualize society
Track Name: Extinction
Pervasive disenchantment
Elimination of delusional thought
Baseless theories questioned at last
Unexplained dogma put to rest
Godly standards systematically replaced
Disrupting conformity with accumulated wisdom and self-directed validation
Disillusionment abolishing divinity
Establishment of autonomous morality
Universal truth
No longer subjected to retribution
Unrestrained experience of life
Through unbiblical upheaval
Termination of the age of absurdity
Inauguration of wonder and reason
Liberation of exponential development
Unleashing true human potential
Transcendence of earthly bonds
Augmenting astrophysical awareness
Nebulous interconnections become evident
We are the omnipresent
