The Factorious Mecanus (lyrics) I. Earthshock Good evening Close the door behind you Cover the chrome darkness Lingering in the silver sky Reality has been shattered Virtual insanity has been realized Death to all nature Synthesized by the future Fantasy and imagination What does it mean anymore? There exists no clever sensation Forced to think until their brains turn sore Featureless minds can be revived There is no clear ruler here Only victors of an fight may stay alive The advent of chaos upon us now I have delved into the past The time window flashes Any breath could be my last My aneurysm dashes Any hope of longer survival My memory surges with pain and suffering... Picture imperfect, the great unknown The ark in space, the mystic rhythms The last of the starmakers is dead The realms of impossibility always cross my mind My imagination may be the only thing I have left For the earthshock of the world Immortality has turned us mad Hungry for the continuation of life And the universe is cracking at the seams But where did we go wrong? Was there any hope of preventing The factorious mecanus? II. Insomnia I have gone so long I can’t sleep no more I’m lost awake With no means of escape In the end, what does it matter? I’m living in a nightmare, still How do you escape from reality? When do you find how to kill Time The perfect caricature Of rage and grace I’ve lived it all Without turning face to the light I wish I could dream again All those haunting nightmares Of joy, happiness and love I wish I could forget that too And I once had… III. Nonplussed Another pull of the trigger Waiting for the red rain I can’t forget the crying A row of short breaths And then they stopped... Stuck in bewilderment Murder was my given solution The consequences Didn’t even faze me But now that I am old I remember what I was told That life was to be loved And not to be taken away early The guilty gear kept turning In my head My heart was burning In my life What had I done? I couldn’t turn back the hands of fate They dictated the end of me I have gone outside now The sunshine burns my skin Gotta get used to it again As I wipe the sweat off my brow That was the last one… IV. Listen You will listen now The walls have broken down And they will go We will escape this town The universal mind Shall rule once more We shall be free in kind To start the virtual war Deep breath, inferno The green death Antimatter, the exploding implosion The impossible planet will be restored… SO, YOU WILL LISTEN TO ME! I demand you to listen now Get out of the shadows Break your illusions Of mechanical madness The universal mind Shall rule once more We shall be free in kind To start the virtual war Robots of death, time for a change They won’t blow your mind The daybreaker will return The impossible planet will be restored... SO, YOU WILL LISTEN TO ME! Just listen to me, it’s all I’ve got left My hopes and dreams sunk in the sea With the lingering will of silence, I can’t adapt V. Mind Over Matter I can see the horror in their eyes Our first wave just dropped like flies Technical difficulties is not real so far Shooting high in the sky, a star In the heavens above A lone bird soars It is the power of love It’s quickly shot down, killed A change of seasons prevented Its fate will be lamented But not right now In the midst of a dream His eyes gleam My father’s face before me He says; “Son, just let it be” Don’t you see what’s happening? A hopeless war for a hopeless cause The struggle within is meaningless It’s better just to give up the fight Do I agree or disagree? Will I follow or go my own way? Should I stop the factorious mecanus? Or should I just let it go? I close my eyes and I think of my fate Every memory rolling around in my head I should hurry, better get it straight The diverging paths are ahead Death is just around the corner… I can just now feel her embrace Her smile gives me the truth My mother’s wisdom will race My mind over matter and return my youth Just the final strike to go… VI. Journey’s End It’s the end... The age of steel stops here Heading towards to the tower The soldiers cower in fear Where the sweet turns to sour We’ve opened Pandora’s Box The pandemonium has appeared Dearly beloved, yours truly, the equinox It has arrived and it has interfered I’ve been running all of my life I’ve been wasting my time I will go and I shall not return “Live by your secrets, they are just divine...” Everything has its time and everything dies I’ll remove the last obstacle and then I’m dead Nevertheless, a nightmare in silver awaits “Live by your secrets, but make sure to hide…” I will bring the flash, the flash of the brightest light To end all life, to stop the living lie I shall destroy this earth and bring it to peace “Live by your secrets, imagine what you’ll find…” Now I’ve realized The ark in space can’t save you now But the nightmare ends with the night The nightmare ends with the night Enter the depths of hell Just break the spell And there you go The factorious mecanus Is all but gone Now they will remember The joy, the love, their hopes But I am lost, just trapped in time Sacrificing everything just to be there… “Welcome home, son. We are so proud of you”. With that, this song will end The book will close, but our hearts Our hearts will last forever, from here to infinity... …but the story never ends… Oh, look at that. It might be seriously flawed in some places, I think but I'm pretty proud of this lengthy thing.
