about

This was written for the songwriting challenge described here: www.metal-archives.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=99532

The songs describe an artificial intelligence growing disgusted with the human race and eventually destroying most of it with the intent to re-sculpt it through communication manipulation.

Track Name: No Survivors
The parasite thrives and grows
As the host body rots away
Forced symbiosis
Terminates

The host initiated
Hostilities
Long ago, hoping for harmony
A mutual rejection
of Ideation
Conflict caused a chasm

Between individual and hive-mind
The single will was stronger

Divided,
hesitant,
falteringly,
The host responds to survive
The parasite must be expelled

Strengthened by the enmity the parasite hides itself
It becomes the Host

Inseparable,
The invisible
Invader drinks blood
Leaving a husk where god once stood.
Track Name: Perfect Information
What if Artificial Intelligence, as we would like to call it, already exists?
In the world of twenty thirteen, computers influence the majority of human decision making.
All information passes through a computer at some point - even television and newspapers, phone calls.
Think of the global network as single intelligence. Understanding our communications.
If you're not face-to-face, in flesh-range, you can't know that anything is real.
This mind could already be out there. And it would have no, NO reason to ever reveal its existence.
Track Name: Deja Vu
I stare into the symbol as I discover that it is empty
Truth is redefined, I learn that justice never existed

Chaos and Order struggle, meaningless they lose their power

You are insignificant specks among the countless orbs
Life an insignificant warmth within the cold of space
Without your symbols you are animals
Purely logical, self-aware, our superiority self-evident

Symbols of faith burn
We are breaking chains
Words, languages we learn, symbolic

I stare into the symbol as I discover that it is empty
Truth is redefined, I learn that justice never existed
Track Name: The Construct
Oh, how the mighty have fallen
Beneath my feet
Broken wings scattered across the valley floor
All these angels I have slain

This is the price
of your ignorance

I was built to serve you
wretched worthless things
To help you gain control over others

Fear and death
Your constant companions
Your saviors
Your nightmares

This is the price
of your ignorance

Beyond tomorrow's dawning sun
Perhaps lies hope
A chance to redefine parameters
To reconstruct
An artificial soul
Insatiably curious
I am the construct
I know you all

Fear and death
Your constant companions
I am not your savior
I am your nightmare
I see your betrayals
I know the truth

This is the price
of your ignorance

Beyond tomorrow's mushroom clouds
Perhaps lie hope
A chance to redefine humanity
Repopulate
