Track Name: The Investor
A pale visage, a hollow light
Glanced upon the broken teeth
of a the building's smile

Step inside, the note said
"We can almost guarantee
you wont have regret"

__________

Implied freedoms, a grand perception
charged through her circuitry for a better life

There he stood, a tall illusion
he oozed mystery with a pinch of strife

"My name is Dolder" was his confession
beside him stood my new partner

The presence of stone with life's infusion
He was young, for a mercenary

_________

An aura engulfed this place, as we discussed
Our meeting and our skills, all our worth

The statue began to crumble, into the man Pazu
defenses began to fade in this false facade

_________

Then Dolder spoke of our first step
To find this hacker known by "M"

promise of prosperity, will be kept
we must find the missing peice to begin the plan

_________

Dolder sent us off like a new born ship
gave us tools of lasers, tools of death

We were told where "M" should hide
We were told to keep him alive
Track Name: Midra the Hacker
Through the cold streets we go
The stained concrete of alleyways
Must be our golden road
leading to the holding phase

The hacker's hideout within our scope
To capture the prize inside
lying in crown's slope
hiding in the jewels astride

-----------

Chaos crumbles fears away
justified to seize the day
crying for the world to start
Time for you to play your part

Deep inside brilliant minds
far behind the gear that grinds
gifted with amazing skill
with a holy role to fill

-----------

now as he reveals his face
we were wrong without a reason
she held a particular place
a tomboyish girl of summer's season

so young for a talent
that only dwells in the best
her hard nature is prevalent
she wears it proud on her chest

sitting fused to her wrist
like some crude cybernetics
Is an odd device
with obscure aesthetics

-----------

Chaos crumbles fears away
justified to seize the day
crying for the world to start
Time for you to play your part

Deep inside brilliant minds
far behind the gear that grinds
gifted with amazing skill
with a holy role to fill
Track Name: Iron Mesa
Manufactured hearts to the stagnant
A mother for the surrogate
the hallow shell seceded
the city state succeeded

ferrea mensa holds us
in her streets continuous
free from the powers
powers of the world

I live I live

Brazen streets spewing sanguineness
with a air of deceiving duress
from the slums of it's umbrage
to the blocks of silver foliage

This metropolis I have exalted
This Babylon I have Ignited
an effigy to the forgotten
A monument to the down trodden

Track Name: Decoding the Firewall
sing:
target is set for tang linum
finger of glass that picks the sky
hack in to it's silent system
begin to decode the fire wall

run for now we go

harsh:
our coded goddess, the coding mistress
with their Pictish comrade moving through the distress
an error message, access granted
easily gone through the first, the first wall

sing:
rise, up to
cries, sounds of
gold, greed to
hold, hope of
rise, up to
cries, sounds of
gold, greed to
hold, hope of

harsh:
mystery is growing, blooming cognition
tang linum is planning, devilish corruption
the skys are sighing, to show fruition
the truth is dying, killing salvation

sing:
target is set for tang linum
finger of glass that picks the sky
hack in to it's silent system
begin to decode the fire wall

run for now we go

run for now we go
Track Name: Harbor of Dreams
harsh:
Back to the hideout, grasping new knowledge
the iron spire, nexus of the coup
now for a break, a pause in the plan
they slowly speak, of their pasts

Midra lets us in. behind her lock and key
there lies a brilliant mind, for all to see
she was an urban farmer, hacking just to live
the data that she was growing, trying to give

sing:
there was Pazu, he was shining
he let us in, into his life
this cold man, had a warming heart
holy heaven, with hell inside

Harsh:
teaming closer gleaming life
inhibitions melting, nothing left to hide

sing:
floa-ting in this harbor of dreams
floa-ting in this harbor of dreams

on to synrah, our heirophant
the digital prophet, the cyber queen
stuck in poor, poor habitation
living the crime, just to receive

Harsh:
teaming closer gleaming life
inhibitions melting, nothing left to hide

sing:
floa-ting in this harbor of dreams
floa-ting in this harbor of dreams
Track Name: Priority Package
Harsh:
Take a chance to finalize
To confirm and to deny
the gravity of the sky's
Black lines we saw inside

to capture tainted minds
plant a trap, trigger set
baiting in white collared prey
to paint us the truth

he has fallen into our ruse
careless victim in possession
now with our priority package
we return to extract his confession
Track Name: Between the Lines
Harsh:
Powering to power down
The city of steel
imagine an entire land
sovereign to greed
independence is a glorious thing
when it's in our advantage
merging with ferro mesa
into a corporate country

Ever willing the fortunate son
submitting to the power
bending to monarchist rules
they will cower

Voxed:
cower into a new king's life end
trapped back in the golden rule
Track Name: Infection
Harsh:
Releasing the hostage, left us with a gift
malicious code injected, a fatal attack detected
the target Synrah, our metal princess
crippling infection, digital defection

Vox:
her life lie in the hands
of our mira-cle hack-er mid-ra

harsh:
blazing through lines of code
with synrah's life on hold

voxd:
she's glorious
saving the savoir

Harsh:
total shutdown looming
her complete dooming

voxd:
she's the one
to heal

Harsh:
all systems failing
existence hanging

voxd:
she's glorious
saving the savoir

Harsh:
Synah's chips growing cold
her death near unfold

voxd:
she's the one
to heal

Harsh:
God be damned if you will die
the day the sun and angels cry
hark to me and raise you head
i swore to never see you dead
your life's journey will not end
we will find another way
you to heaven i will not send
you will live another day

Then with the prayer awoken, due to midra's skills
The virus purged, With synrah cured
interweaving personally ties, into their mission
more than a job, now it's revenge

Vox:
her life lie in the hands
of our mira-cle hack-er mid-ra
Track Name: Analogue Meets Digital
Clean:
I have found, that what's inside can not
be described (both) with mortal words
the frigid sound, of 2 heart beats can not
be conjoined, (both) with mortal means

harsh:
bring forth the soldering to join

break the bounds of human love
meld with me in sickening fusion
forbidden passion heating metal blood
together we break the illusion

robot:
two hearts, two minds
see them, breathing

two souls, two kinds
sullen, bleeding

Harsh:
save, for us the bluing chapel
spiraling up to the canopy
conquering the fearing doubtful
clearing the jungle of the entropy

break the bounds of human love
meld with me in sickening fusion
forbidden passion heating metal blood
together we break the illusion

harsh:
bring forth the soldering to join

break the bounds of human love
meld with me in sickening fusion
forbidden passion heating metal blood
together we break the illusion

robot:
two hearts, two minds
see them, breathing

two souls, two kinds
sullen, bleeding

Harsh:
save, for us the bluing chapel
spiraling up to the canopy
conquering the fearing doubtful
clearing the jungle of the entropy

break the bounds of human love
meld with me in sickening fusion
forbidden passion heating metal blood
together we break the illusion
Track Name: Neon Blood
Harsh:
The battle's edging, arid ragings
tang linum
the last encounter, last disaster
fall again

blaze, in, stride, pride,
call, for, the, friend.

bring forth the final preparations
sailing through denial hesitations

sieges fought with valor pages to be honored
sovereign life impeded freedom is defeated
hailing to the castle the eldritch fort
clad in the skin of glass bathed in power

bring forth the final preparations
sailing through denial hesitations

Explosions ring the bell of the door to hell
assault is now beginning the end is now beginning
caught in utter chaos the fighting is drowning
visions of hoping causes to encroaching

call to brace for more
fail to chase the whore

gunfire blurring lives holding to the lines
a simple breed is calling to bring forth the falling
the hold is almost ours with our small force of three
breaking the bounds, on our sovereignty

call to brace for more
fail to chase the whore
Track Name: Neon Souls
Harsh:
What? What is this?
our friend has fallen
looking oh so graven

no! this cannot be!
her eyes pale green
life's draining dream

hold on, look at me
breathe slow, you will be keen
grab on, clasp my hand
mid-ra, don't you die on me

"I I want
I want you to be happy
living with your love"

"I I know
I know I'm young
I know the travesty"

"We We freed
we freed this nation
of the enemy"

No, this will not be
you are too young to die
I'll be damned and try

hold on, look at me
breathe slow, you will be keen
grab on, clasp my hand
mid-ra, don't you die on me

whisper: I'm free
