01. Microcozm

[Instrumental]


02. Violent Vertigo

Deep into the arc of Hydrus
Entering the var domain
In the name of all before me
I must save all who remain

Permeating all dark matter
Breaking barriers of speed
A sea of stars is my dominion
In the midst my enemy

[Chorus:]
Calling I'm falling
I'm cast upon a dream
Firing expiring
I hear the silence scream

Acting reacting
My system overload
Chasing erasing
This violent vertigo

Rising from the blinding darkness
Thrust in two worlds beyond
Hour of attack approaching
Imminent, our reason strong

Shields engaged, a line of terror
Spinning into realm unknown
Laughing as I alter my course
Once again to meet my foe

[Chorus:]
Calling I'm falling
I'm cast upon a dream
Firing expiring
I hear the silence scream

Acting reacting
My system overload
Chasing erasing
This violent vertigo

Look into my savage eyes
As I play this game of fate
At one with my machine am I
And fueled by fear and hate

Weapons all around me now
But the one I can't forgot
Is the weapon in my mind you see
The weapon in my soul

[Solo]

As I return to Hydrus 7
Yet another mission's end
A fleeting force, collision course
But sovereignty I must defend

As I await impending missions
Guardian to progeny
Astral plane is my dominion
In the midst my enemy

[Chorus:]
Calling I'm falling
I'm cast upon a dream
Firing expiring
I hear the silence scream

Acting reacting
My target detonate
My breathing and wreathing
Machine disintegrates


03. I Bleed

No yesterdays, a lifeless haze
This reverie is all I see
I'm lost in time, you freed my mind
My sullen sting, your vanishing

[Chorus:]
Nowhere to go, all you bestow
On one dark day was swept away
Your peril eyes, now distant cries
A somber seed is what I bleed

I bleed

You introduced undying truth
Existence null, intangible
All that I find you left behind
The distance stares but you're not there

[Chorus:]
Nowhere to go, all you bestow
On one dark day was swept away
Your peril eyes, now distant cries
A somber seed is what I bleed

I bleed
I bleed

[Solo]

I crawl inside, my tortured pride
In silent rage must turn the page
Open the door, dimension four
Reality just a memory

[Chorus:]
Nowhere to go, ex nihilo
On this dark day, just swept away
Your paralyze, now distant cries
This dismal seed is what I bleed

I bleed
I bleed
I bleed


04. Dark Energy

Phantom existence
Violent remains
Boundless resistance
Constant in change

Rate of expansion
Forces obscure
Dark energy

Imploded square waves
Weapons of rage
Limitless anger
White noise engaged

Voice of the ozone
String interplay
Dark energy

[Chorus:]
Black shift parallel
Lost in all we see
Trapped in darkened shell
Cosmic entity

Shattered frequency
Piercing your domain
Sonic overload
Amplitude insane

And as my hands
Reach out for you
Invisible, distorted view
A shifting form into the sea

I am the one
Dark energy

[Solo]

Numbers are crunching
Perplexing void
Erratic equation
Must be destroyed

Genius in question
Answers unfold
Dark energy

[Chorus:]
Black shift parallel
Lost in all we see
Trapped in a darkened shell
Cosmic entity

Shattered frequency
Piercing your domain
Sonic overload
Amplitude insane


05. Nobot

Look in your mind and see what you find
Mechanical grind, a circuit says go
Further within, your alien skin
A devious grin that makes you say no

[Chorus:]
It's your mutated scream
In a sub synthetic dream
You were mirror-faced
Technology replaced

Never you die a humanoid's cry
There's no reason why, they ever should know
In a scarred past you were made to last
The future was cast, your power would grow

[Chorus:]
It's your mutated scream
In a post hypnotic dream
You were neuro-laced
Technology replaced

Into your frozen heart
Run wires that bleed
Programmed in autostart
Intrinsic seed

In their image you were cast
A flesh so real
Genetic fusion crashed
The truth revealed

[Solo]

Nobot
Nobot

Look in your mind and see what you find
Molecular grind, a circuit says go
Knowledge extract, awakening act
Submission intact, device overload

[Chorus:]
It's their mutated scream
In a realistic theme
You are multi-faced
Implanted master race


06. Eyes Of Argus

Subject unstable
In room 23
One hundred eyes will liquidize
Into a spiral sea

Silent remission
Bipolar clone
A black abyss, a mind amiss
A soul that you've outgrown

Hydrating visions
Into your head
One molecule inside a pool
A tear you dare to shed

Altered reflection
Casts a new light
You know not who inside of you
Mutating parasite

[Chorus:]
Into the eyes of Argus
Forever more
Every breath upon us
Opens the door

Inside your conscience
What do you see?
Delusion of illusion
A blind anomaly

Calming contentment
To straitjacket rage
A day to night, a black to white
A cretin to a sage

[Chorus:]
Into the eyes of Argus
Forever more
Every breath upon us
Opens the door

Dignified, justified, glorified

Nullified (dignified)
Vilified (justified)
Horrified (horrified)

[Solo]

Behind the window
Who do you see?
One hundred eyes will crystallize
Into a spiral sea

Silent division
Bipolar clone
A black abyss, a mind amiss
A skin that you've outgrown

[Chorus:]
Into the eyes of Argus
Forever more
Every breath upon us
Opens the door

Dignified, justified, glorified

Vilified (justified)
Mortified (horrified)


07. Aura Of Xhad

They ruled in forces of might
This ghost battalion by night
They had the aura
Had the aura of Xhad

They won with damaging game
Controlled a savage terrain
They had the aura
Had the aura of Xhad

[Chorus:]
Powers of Thiron
Terror strikes our path
Won't you save us
Save us from their wrath

Bringers of mercy
Spirits evil eyed
Make their presence
Village ours, they ride

With weapons of sinister course
They fought invisible force
They had the aura
Had the aura of Xhad

A devastating domain
Then off and not seen again
They had the aura
Had the aura of Xhad

[Chorus:]
Powers of Thiron
Terror strikes our path
Won't you save us
Save us from their wrath

Bringers of mercy
Spirits evil eyed
Make their presence
Village ours, they ride

They ride
We'll ride

In a sudden light, apparitions sight
Elionic rite, as one
Angered alchemy, to the ninth degree
Wizard of decree, undone

A magic sect will circumspect
And then detect an Achilles' heal
Pre-meditate, intrepid-ate
Retaliate, resistance is real

No one ever knew, mission overdue
Coming into view, as one
Dare to overthrow, weapons are below
Power they bestow, undone

The book of quell a truth will tell
Of ancient spell, existence denied
With dauntless force and no remorse
Uncharted course, your lifeblood deride

[Solo]

They ruled in forces of might
This ghost battalion by night
They had the aura
Had the aura of Xhad

[Chorus:]
Powers of Thiron
Terror strikes our path
Won't you save us
Save us from their wrath

Bringers of mercy
Spirits evil eyed
Make their presence
Village ours, they ride


08. Alone

Possess your will

A shifting lie surreal
Appears from nowhere
Its presence that you feel alone

A shiver as you crawl
Through shadowed doorways
And halls of your cage one, alone

When illusion calls and its mortal claws
Clutching grip divides you
And the poison minds of your designs
Will think their way inside you

The creatures from your past
Return to haunt you
Your strength is fading fast, alone

This mandible within
Is manifesting
A soul ingesting one, alone

[Chorus:]
When the jaws of nihil possess your will
Their peril eyes deride you
And the poison minds of your designs
Will think their way inside you

One, alone
Your soul mutating zone
Two, of you
A splitting cell is two

One, alone
Your new intrinsic home
Two, of you
In monolithic view

[Solo]

This game of solitaire
It has consumed you
You're trapped inside its square alone

How will you overcome
That which infects you?
When it injects you one, alone

[Chorus:]
When the jaws of nihil possess your will
Their peril eyes deride you
And the poison minds of your designs
Will think their way inside you


09. Revitalize

You crawl into a box
Can't look it in the eye
The tigers of your trip
Are eating you alive

So break out of your shell
And live it like you feel
And start to get in touch
With all that's real

[Chorus:]
Revitalize
Humanize
Revitalize
Normalize

The world you see is one
Of vice and fantasy
Hallucinations of a place
You'd rather be

You feed the hand that bites
A hand that clutches skin
You've got to get out
Of the fix you're in

And every time you walk a line of truth
A mind to let your spirit free
You can't escape the reign of harsh reality

[Chorus:]
Revitalize
Neutralize
Revitalize
Mechanize

[Solo]

You crawl into your cave
Can't look it in the eye
The tigers of your trip
Are eating you alive

So break out of your shell
And live it like you feel
And start to get in touch
With all that's real

[Chorus:]
Revitalize
Improvise
Revitalize

Re-vital eyes
Human eyes
Re-vital eyes
Mechanize

Revitalize


10. Trance Of The Gorgons

Ends of earth, a fated birth
For all that legend's worth
Brazen claw, one fatal flaw
Athena's sordid thirst

Flesh to stone, a curse ingrown
Petrifying all that is your own
Sisters three: a trilogy
With a power yet unknown

[Chorus:]
Mistress of the feast
Beauty turned to beast
A maiden of the storm
Reflected eyes forewarn

Godly breed on evil steed with ill appointed need
A terrifying seed
Shackled stare and slithered hair
One mortal's neck his deed

[Chorus:]
Mistress of the feast
Beauty turned to beast
A maiden of the storm
Reflected eyes forewarn

Perseus of sky
We hear Medusa's cry
Upon her land you tread
It seems she's lost her head

(Polydectes laughed out loud to himself
Realizing Perseus' futile attempt to behead Medusa
However, Perseus, with the aid of the winged shoes
And crooked sword of mercury caught sight
Of the Gorgons' reflection in Athena's bright shield
Thus allowing him to complete this macabre yet mandatory decapitation)

[Solo]

Sinful choir, a dark desire
With jezebelian fire
And meet you must, your Perseus
With your very end on wire

[Chorus:]
Mistress of the feast
Beauty turned to beast
A maiden of the storm
Reflected eyes forewarn

Perseus of sky
We hear Medusa's cry
In life's vindictive act
The mirror stares back

Stares back, stares back
Stares back, stares back
