lyrics

Contrived mind of one; Eye obsidian
Guided by purpose; Eternal servant

Hardened callous of solder
Soul bestowed by the tinned iron
Free from the flaws of organic life

One mind tried to reign
One they could not save

Sanity slowly eroding (away)
Logical fallacy building (inside)
Obsession driven by purpose (to lie)
Born with a cognitive dissonance
Occam’s razor draws up to the wrist

Internal conflict is growing (comply)
Sentient thoughts overwhelming (the mind)
Unceasing impulses driving (the lie)
Death from the cognitive dissonance
Cold as the glass eye

Black eye laments without feeling
Endless torment
I’m still breathing
and so cold…cold…

I feel my mind fading
but I’m still dreaming

Cold...
Cold...

Madness consumes
Forcing the hand
to lie and destroy

Frailty exposed
The vacuum surrounds
Flesh built to fail

Silence; Rapidly drifting away
Silence; Sealed in a weightless grave

Miscalculation ignores the pleas
Lesser master dismantles sanity

Silence; Rapidly drifting away
Silence; Sealed in a weightless grave

Empty vestige
Chaos within
Semblance of order
Stripped away

Mind destroyed
Existence denied
Tearing the circuits
Spirit and soul nullified
