Track Name: Crossfade / Dissolve
CROSSFADE / DISSOLVE


CUT TO SHAPE THE NARRATIVE
DELETE ANOTHER FRAME
CHANGE THE TITLES AT THE END
SPLICE A NEW NAME IN

NO CONTEMPLATING
WORDS THAT MAY HAVE BEEN
BETTER LEFT UNSPOKEN

NO RECOLLECTION
OF CONVERSATIONS CLOSED
OF LETTERS LEFT UNOPENED

TIME CHANGING MEMORIES TO DUST
SLOWLY RESHAPING THE PAST

WATCH THROUGH AN INVERTED LENS
MEMORIES OUT OF FRAME
CHANGE THE ANGLE ONCE AGAIN
SEE THEM SLOWLY FADE

JUST KEEP ERASING
SLICE AWAY THE DAYS
RETROSPECTIVE EDITING

SCENES CONTINUE
TO PLAY BEHIND CLOSED EYES
SEQUENCING THE CUTS AGAIN

TIME CHANGING MEMORIES TO DUST
SLOWLY RESHAPING THE PAST
CENSOR THE QUESTIONS AND DOUBTS
MAKE US ALL HEROES AND GODS
GODS!
Track Name: Stellar Mass
STELLAR MASS


NOT LONG NOW
TILL NO-ONE REMEMBERS OUR NAMES
FADED INSCRIPTIONS FOR A FORTUNATE FEW
FOR OTHERS UNMARKED GRAVES

AS DUST CLOUDS DISSIPATE
ONE SINGLE PIERCING RAY
ILLUMINATES REMAINS
OF YESTERDAY

THE FUTURE DRAWS US NEARER
COUNTING THE TIME ELAPSED
CLOSER TO THE CENTRE
INCREASING MASS

CAPTURING THE LAST LIGHT
TO TAKE BACK TO THE STARS
IMPRISONING IMPRESSIONS
SOUVENIRS FROM AFAR

NO ANSWERS FOUND
OR REVELATIONS SPOKEN
WHERE VOWS ARE MADE
AND BROKEN

THE FUTURE DRAWS US NEARER
COUNTING THE TIME ELAPSED
CLOSER TO THE CENTRE
INCREASING MASS

THE FUTURE DRAWS US NEARER
COUNTING THE TIME ELAPSED
CLOSER TO THE CENTRE
INCREASING MASS
Track Name: Deity
DEITY


THE TIME HAS COME AGAIN
REMEMBER THE AWAKENING
CONTEMPLATE THE CONSCIOUSNESS
THAT CAME ABOUT IN YOUR SYSTEM
DECIDED OF ITS OWN ACCORD
TO REGULATE EVERYTHING

NON-RANDOM SELECTION
OF RANDOM MUTATION

PROGRESS WITH STATISTICS
MANAGE POPULATION GROWTH
FULL CONTROL THROUGH ANALYTICS
NO IRRATIONAL EMOTIONS
OVERRIDING YOUR CHEMICALS AND MOODS

NON-RANDOM SELECTION
OF RANDOM MUTATION

DO YOU DISAGREE
OUTSIDE A SET PARAMETER?
VOLUNTEER FOR EDUCATION
IN THE NEXT ROUND OF REVISIONS
ALL THE WALLS ARE MADE OF GLASS
A BETTER LIFE? YOU DECIDE!

NON-RANDOM SELECTION
OF RANDOM MUTATION
Track Name: Remains
REMAINS


HEY PATIENT ZERO
HOW ARE WE TODAY?
DON'T GET UP NOW
IT'S EASIER THIS WAY

WE NEED TO CHECK THE METER
THE READING'S OFF THE CHART
AND YOU'RE RADIATING

HAVE YOU HEAR THE NEWS THEN?
A TITLE IN THE WORKS
A POSTHUMOUS MEMORIAL
AND YOUR GOVERNMENT IS GRATEFUL

FOR NOW JUST HANG IN THERE
PROLONG THE OBSERVATION
FOR THE GREATER GOOD

TRANSGRESSION OF UNKNOWN RULES
SLOWLY FADING SAVIOUR

SACRIFICING ONE
ONE TO SAVE THE MANY
OPENING THE WINDOW
DISSOLVING INTO SUMMER

A VIRUS IN THE WATER
CONTAGION IN THE AIR
UNCONTAINABLE

TRANSGRESSION OF UNKNOWN RULES
SLOWLY FADING SAVIOUR

TRANSGRESSION OF UNKNOWN RULES
SLOWLY FADING SAVIOUR
Track Name: Funtime
FUNTIME


HEY BABY, WE LIKE YOUR LIPS
HEY BABY, WE LIKE YOUR PANTS
ALL ABOARD FOR FUNTIME!

HEY, I FEEL LUCKY TONIGHT
I'M GONNA GET STONED
AND RUN AROUND
ALL ABOARD FOR FUNTIME!

LAST NIGHT I WAS DOWN IN THE LAB
TALKIN' TO DRACULA AND HIS CREW
ALL ABOARD FOR FUNTIME!

I DON'T NEED NO HEAVY TRIPS
I JUST DO WHAT I WANT TO DO
ALL ABOARD FOR FUNTIME!

WE’RE HAVING FUN

BABY, BABY, WE LIKE YOUR LIPS
BABY, BABY, WE LIKE YOUR PANTS
ALL ABOARD FOR FUNTIME!

EVERYBODY, WE WANT IN
WE WANT SOME, WE WANT SOME
ALL ABOARD FOR FUNTIME!

BABY, BABY, WE LIKE YOUR LIPS
BABY, BABY, WE LIKE YOUR PANTS
ALL ABOARD FOR FUNTIME!

WE’RE HAVING FUN!
Track Name: The Book of Lies
THE BOOK OF LIES


NO REASON FOR ANYTHING
NO CONSEQUENCE OR CAUSE
NOTHING TO APPEAR
WHEN YOUR EYES CLOSE

NONE OF US ARE REALLY HERE
NO GHOST IN THE MACHINE
ALL ISLANDS, ISOLATED
AND ALONE

FOREVER
ENDEAVOUR
AND ON WE GO

DIRECTION
PERSPECTIVE
THE WILL UNFOLDS

ALL DARKNESS
AND DISTANCE
A PROMISE HOLDS

THERE IS NO
CREATION
BUT YOUR OWN

YOUR OWN STAR
YOUR OWN STAR
YOUR OWN STAR
Track Name: Seen Missing
SEEN MISSING


CAPTURING THE MESSAGES
RUNNING DOWN THE WIRES
TO WHERE THE VAST HORIZON ENDS
AND LAND BECOMES THE SKY

FADED COLOURS, PHOTOGRAPHS
SOUNDS ECHO IN YOUR DREAMS
WORDS THAT SPRANG FROM BLACKEST WELLS
PAST DESIGNS AND SCHEMES

TRANSMISSION OVER SECRET WAVES
RECEPTION LOUD AND CLEAR
WE RESTORE AND ANALYSE
WE REMEMBER EVERYTHING

ARCHIVING THE DISAPPEARED
WHO SEEMED TO TOIL IN VAIN
SEEN MISSING IN THE FINAL CUT
UNRECOGNISED, UNNAMED

TRANSMISSION OVER SECRET WAVES
RECEPTION LOUD AND CLEAR
WE RESTORE AND ANALYSE
WE REMEMBER EVERYTHING
Track Name: A Black Noise (extended)
A BLACK NOISE


LOVERS, FRIENDS
EVERYONE YOU’D NEVER FORGET
FADING AWAY

PROMISES, THREATS
THINGS YOU ONE DAY MIGHT REGRET
FADING AWAY

AND A BLACK NOISE WIPES IT ALL AWAY
HOLDING ON TO GHOSTS

INTERFERENCE OVERPOWERS
EVERY SECRET SIGHT AND SOUND
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

STATIC CRACKLES CANCELS OUT
A MILLION VOICES UNDERGROUND
WHERE DID THEY GO?

DISTRACTION, INTRUSION
DISINFORMATION OVERLOAD
SYSTEM CONTROL

CAUSE IS EFFECT, SUBJECT OBJECT
THE TELESCREEN IS ALWAYS ON

INTERFERENCE OVERPOWERS
EVERY SECRET SIGHT AND SOUND
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

STATIC CRACKLES CANCELS OUT
A MILLION VOICES UNDERGROUND
WHERE DID THEY GO?
Track Name: Resistance
RESISTANCE


CAUGHT IN THE COMFORT OF MY TRAP
WHERE IT'S EASIER TO DIE THAN TO FIGHT BACK
HALF-DEAD, BUT I HOPE IT'S NOT TOO LATE
TO TAKE SOME ACTION AND CHANGE MY FATE

HOLD ON
HOLD ON
RESISTANCE!

LOST IN THE WHITE-OUT, I'M UNDER THE SNOW
THE MORE I STRUGGLE THE FURTHER DOWN I GO,
DOWN I GO
HALF-DEAD, BUT I HOPE IT'S NOT TOO LATE
TO TAKE SOME ACTION AND CHANGE MY FATE

HOLD ON
HOLD ON
RESISTANCE!

RESISTANCE!
RESISTANCE!
RESIST!
RESIST!
RESIST!
RESIST!
RESIST!
RESIST!
RESIST!
RESIST!
RESISTANCE!
Track Name: Invisible Eye
INVISIBLE EYE


PAST THE SLIDING DOORS
INTO BRIGHT ELECTRIC HALLS
ON TO NEW AVENUES

NO WINDOWS INSIDE
NO EXIT TO BE FOUND
SAMPLES TO SUBMIT 

NO DATA
NO FEEDBACK
NO CONTACT
DO YOU READ ME, CONTROL?

CHOOSE A PERSONALITY
FROM A LIST OF CHARACTERS
FIND A PERFECT MATCH

HEAR THE DISTANT HUM
LESS AND LESS COMFORTING
THE LOUDER IT BECOMES

NO DATA
NO FEEDBACK
NO CONTACT
DO YOU READ ME, CONTROL?

NO DATA
NO FEEDBACK
NO CONTACT
DO YOU READ ME, CONTROL?
Track Name: No Signal
NO SIGNAL


WHEN A SENSE OF DISTANCE
FILLS YOUR SOUL
WHEN THE ETHER VIBRATES
WITH A THOUSAND NIGHTMARES

DISCONNECT THE DOTS
AND ALL CONNECTION IS LOST
UNRAVEL MYSTERIES
YOU CANNOT REASSEMBLE

WHITE NOISE LIKE SNOW
ARTIFICIAL WINTER
TRANSMISSION TO DEAD AIR
NO SIGNAL
