Track Name: Mechanical Motions of Dying Stars
Those plastic versions of ourselves
the ghost note manifestations
The apparitions in the mirror, they can sense it all
the blackened gravity

of wanting eyes, just behind
it dialates the time
but, where's it gone?
where've I gone?

Fixed on the motion of dying stars
that give way in a silent reveal, a flash of light
to defy the solitude in a roar for all time.

every sound is so dangerous amongst the silence within
but the sounds we don't hear must haunt us
the blinding heat we don't feel must shake our nerves

the sound we don't hear must haunt us

In silence, defiance
it dialates the time
so bright and blinding
so bright
Track Name: Neon Graves
this disguise, skin to deceive
with binary codes, that run just beneath
handshakes from half-hearted proxies
shielded by a sick blue haze
stealing whispers and hemorrhaging thoughts
hungry eyes, feed on those plots

each life deconstructed
each idea disassembled
every network torn
limb from limb
and on to the next
in that ruthless skin
with a peering flow
an efficient stare
an elusive smile
and a sympathetic eye
but irony is the current
beneath the flow

and so I awoke.

I was the deception
I was the lie
I was every line of code
that hidden wire
I was every life destroyed
every fear perverse
I was the square wave
the enslaved eyes
I was the status quo
the machine being fed
so I ripped it out
from inside my chest

no longer condemned to the narrow haze
of blue light despair
a natural glow fell on the neon graves, a magnificent garden
a betrayal, a sense complex

these phantom limbs won’t let go from inside my chest
the remnants, the remorse, each consequence
I was the tool to break in, your freedom’s extent
and no chemical could numb my sense

but I could sense its appetite, its hunger… in a new light
and one of us must die, another reborn
to end its tyranny, its skin deep empathy
a flicker in that blue haze

with this jackknifed android at my feet, untether the fantasy
I am the conduit, I am the consequence
I am awake
...the Destroyer
