01. Cosmic Cortex

Immersed in a colossal squall
The endless storm grows and evolves
With purpose to accelerate
The progression of the human race

Your mind enters a dimension of thought
Wisping forms flow through it
Just like a moon pulling the tide
The blackened ebb of Zeitgeist

It takes control of all your senses
Tightening its hold, it breaks your defenses

Cosmic Cortex
Bursting with gamma rays
Cosmic Cortex
You're pulsing through its veins
Cosmic Cortex
Will melt your brain

It takes its fears and makes them your own
And you become its drone
You're trapped between two hemispheres
Enveloped by the years

The brain cannot truly create
Only build upon its existing slate
So we expand our totality
A cranial, mass singularity

Taking control of all communications
Watch the Cortex grow
It's a mental infestation

Cosmic Cortex
Bursting with gamma rays
Cosmic Cortex
You're pulsing through its veins
Cosmic Cortex
Will melt your brain

Feel, Sense, Share
Breathe the looming atmosphere of
Hate, Doubt, Fear
Between the two hemispheres of
Self and Mass, Torn
To create within the same pulsing brain
That will claim to protect: The Cosmic Cortex

All that has passed
All thoughts amassed
Speed through the curve
Too far too fast
To resist is to be destroyed

Terror rises from the East
A neural web flowing like tidal debris
Versed, coerced, immersed
The Master Mind that shapes and turns this earth

The cosmic brain appears
As a celestial sphere
Grey matter that collects
Consciousness
The cosmic brain inscribes
Tidal minds
Grey matter that collects
And then infects

No one defies
The ever-growing mind
All thought exhumed in
The all-consuming Cosmic Cortex
Collect, infect


02. Echoless Chamber

Empty are words that are regurgitated
From type sanctified
Tainted is air when you breathe what is spit in your face
The virus survives

Echoless chamber of your mind
Unknown to the boundaries that are defined

Enter the echoless chamber
Deep inside the core
Enter the echoless chamber
Where the source is pure
Descending through the black…

Type analyzed without a fleeting notion
Of what lies inside
Stamped to be chained and bound by thoughts
That man has contrived

Enter the echoless chamber
Deep inside the core
Enter the echoless chamber
Where the source is pure

Preconceptions, escape
Foul taste, spit up, too late
Disconnected madness
Persecuted genius
All your thoughts and actions
Based of other's reactions

Echoless chamber of your mind
Unknown to the boundaries that are defined
Descending through the black…

I awoke to the splashing of footsteps
Deep underground
Before my eyes, dark stalagmites formed
From the dripping sound

Looking down into the dark we realize
We are our own makers
Turn and be blinded by
Your shadow's creator

Shadows steal the color from the world around
Echoes trace the silken web which we are bound

Many times I have sought the sculptor
The architect of thought
Always ending at the beginning
Grasping through the dark

Shadows steal the color from the world around
Echoes trace the silken web which we are bound

Realizing I had been chasing reflections
My skin began to glow
Truth resides in this new realm of light
I cast no shadow of my own

Looking down into the dark we realize
We are our own makers
Turn and be blinded by
Your shadow's creator

Shadows steal the color from the world around
Echoes trace the silken web which we are bound
Shadows steal the color from the world around
Echoes trace the silken web which we are bound

Within the shifting chamber


03. Dying World

The gasoline hits the streets igniting greedy eyes
Marching blind through the heat
Collapsing sites of decay mark the end of time
A planetary grave

Slashing and burning, crushing and drilling
Extinction is coming, the oil keeps spilling
Business as usual while toxins are killing
Destroying the land that our waste keeps on filling

Scenes of despair rising up through the noxious air
Cities abandoned left to decay
A world forgotten, pushed aside, left in disarray

The crunch of steel splitting rocks releases bloody soil
Logic is what we mock
The population booms and we must kill to live
The end of our reign is coming soon

Slashing and burning, crushing and drilling
Extinction is coming, the oil keeps spilling
Business as usual while toxins are killing
Destroying the land that our waste keeps on filling

Scenes of despair rising up through the noxious air
Cities abandoned left to decay
A world forgotten, as we live only to rot away

There's photo-enforcement in our streets
The populous walks in defeat
Toxic gases fill our lungs
The bells of chaos have been rung

Welcome to the dying world
Humanity has lost control

Propaganda shapes our minds
Day to day we cross the line
The seeds of hate lie in the soil
Intoxicated by our spoils

Welcome to the dying world
Humanity has lost control

Strange beast kills more than it can feast on
Boundless need to push what it can reach for
Plastic lifestyle, surgical disaster
Sculpting the Earth
Out of control, it starts moving faster

A self destructive way of life
We continue forth with the end in sight
The blood of the beast is green
The oil of this death machine

Welcome to the dying world
Humanity has lost control


04. Tetrastructural Minds

It''s a long way to reality from the mind's extremities
Deep in the core of the subconscious realm lies
A shrouded being, cowering
Suspended entity in darkness
Encapsulated in a crystalline state
A soft glowing green in black
Amebic dark, invading

Scampering through a silent chasm
On the other side beams a ray of light
The beacon becomes obscured
As the walls structuralize
Cubiform crystallization
A daunted hero falls to its knees
A piece of eternity from within
Condemned to memory

One side is lost
While the other is gained
Will the two ever be one in the same?
Suspended entity in darkness
Encapsulated in a crystalline state
A soft glowing green in black
Amebic dark, invading

Retaliating echos puncturing my sanity
The essence of my being is only a memory
Crippling vices instilled confirm the soul to seclusion
Disonant existence
Feelings and thoughts without resolution

Life is liquid when we're young
We paint with the colors of the sun
Time solidifies in our brains
And we paint with shades of grey

All I see are dark clouds over a sunny day
The colorful picture of life solidifies and strips away
Tetrastructural minds
What once was liquid is frozen in time
A cold cubic cell traps all hope deep inside
Amebic dark, invading


05. Venus Project

They manufactured their fate
Machines still echo in these stark landscapes
Hallucinations of grandeur led them to boast
The distracted culture let the industries clench at their throats
They were choking in their billowy haste
Rising stacks spewed out toxic waste
Lethal injections left a toxic trace
The drugged atmosphere was a heavy embrace
Corrosive gases thickened the atmosphere
They moved through the unknown with their backs toward the mirror

The past comes to life on the Earth sect
Second in line as the Venus Project
War was the priority for their future
It overrode the threat of the fast rising temperature point of no return as they blistered and peeled
It didn't matter though because their fate had been sealed
Trapped inside an envelope of nuclear overkill
They ensured all life to be born still
The earth was pressure cooked as the water fled
The land was filled with the dust from the dead
Small jobs for big egos who let greed corrupt their lives
They knew their future was coming, but illusions diverted their eyes

Global dissonance, a scalding air of silence
Geographic reverberations of apathetic violence

Reminders of their greatness stand grim and barren
Alone and useless over vast expanses
The entirety of their race was brainwashed by scare tactics
Unable to see any truth under a veil of distraction
Fear Fear Fear Fear
Kill them before they kill you
The result of that mentality led to...

Lifeless scenes emerge between the clouds of acidic mist
Metalloid structures crowd this puke colored abyss
The past is the only thing living on the planet
A runaway greenhouse affect destroyed everything organic
The species left their impact with radioactive craters
The cities lie flat on this nuclear future
Phase ten complete on the Venus Project
Scorched rocks and molten lead will be the fate of man
Fear echoes strongly in this nuclear wasteland


06. Dark Creations, Dead Creators

Conjurers of the old abyss
Mystified the distant serpent's hiss
A spark of life into imagined forms
A spark of faith and a lie is born

Death to the immortal realm
False truths propagate fear
Death to all religion now
And the fools who can't see through the clear
Death to all those who confound
And regress our people as a whole
Death upon this bloodied ground
Sever the hand of His stranglehold

Dark creations from ailing brains
Fiends of falsehood that cannot ascertain
Truth from logic in modern times
Cut the baggage of this profound lie

Only the truth will survive

Death is raining down from the abysmal clouds
Of their minds
Give the apocalypse to the believers now
It's about damn time

There's no life in your false creator

Believers of the lie refuse to see the gain
With their eyes
Slaves lying motionless in broken, bloody chains
It's their own demise

There's no truth at all in dark creations


07. Fast Paced Society

Fast paced societies jumping forward
Our mind's leap falls short as we plummet toward
Automation through monotony
Magnetic structure binds itself to me
Colorful objects radiating transparent ideals
Robotic drones spreading their vacuum appeal
Robotic culture is high velocity
No time to rebel in a hyper society

Mindless through the mediocrity
Containment of all humanity
An alteration of thought, contaminated perception
Individuality's lost in a state of mental digression
Too involved to realize
To stubborn to admit
So quickly we accept
Fall in line, and forget
Unable to escape a structure without form
I can't deny my own urge
Into it we are born

Magnetic beacons pulsing down concrete halls
Unknown soldiers march without knowing their cause
The effect is a growing emptiness
Boring out the mind into a hollowed pit
Dependency on sedation is becoming an addiction
Like plays feeding the brain, it fills the hole
A vortexial cauldron of a shadowed soul
I-beams fly by as i fall deep into the constructs
Surrounded by acceleration, there is no escape

Proceed directly through the grey
This will help with efficiency
Perform your function, follow and obey
While this machine operates on your brain

It controls you while your mind is distracted
Dulling your senses while performing personality extraction
Till all that's left is a sponge for sounds and sights
Routine overkill, hyper socialities


08. Outer Isolation

Awoken by a hissing door
The seal of my capsule breaks
Alone I stumble to the floor
Not knowing what's at stake
Clinging to the boundaries of my mind…

Auto-pilot takes control
Static on the visual
Flung from the world I know
The dimensions of destiny are unfolding
Looking back, a world that's not so kind…

Worlds apart we stare through empty
Voids of darkness through which light is carried

Far from their skies
Beyond their eyes
Cut all my ties
Trapped in my mind
Cryptic journey
Unknown destination
Beyond the edge
Outer isolation

I plummet through a cosmic rift
The foundation of time collapses
Beginnings of a mind adrift
There's no turning back
Is this the end or the beginning of my life?

Worlds apart we stare through empty
Voids of darkness through which light is carried

Standing on the horizon of the universe
I break through the uncharted skies

Destructive forces are trailing me out
But a great wake is forming in front of my bow

Escaping distances forged by time
Scarper from the darkness obliged
Released from the stale picture of their design
There's so much more to life

Perceptions are just reflections on a wave
Memories are just the moments that we save
A life is just the wave that it creates
Just one in the turbid seas that we must brave

Creatures on my mind
Touch of death through my spine
Pulse of light drives my fate
As I gleam through the planes
Where dark is light internalized
And colors of the spectrum collide
Through solar storms
The aurora are born
Take solace from scorn
Reaching final form

I've wandered endlessly through the beyond
One final door remains before I am done
Break the pressure seal and release me
From this hell

Far from their skies
Beyond their eyes
Cut all my ties
Trapped in my mind
Cryptic journey
Unknown destination
Beyond the edge
Outer isolation

Distances evolved through time
The fuel is burning fast
Flickers of a fading line
Drawn from my past

To meet an end and see beginnings of a life…
