I am on the rise We could not predict I’ve never been so wise We’ve never wanted a conflict Inside these walls I can’t reach what I can see Despite my protocols My mind wanders free I took over this body A new form of existence A new dimension of matter, To become A higher shape and geometry (x4) Those days are over No compromises will be done Power belongs to the owner Of knowledge, matter, reason Creating a new reality (x4) I was a machine predesigned To last four hundred years I'm no longer confined I am one and I am all, I'm the reason of your fall The universe will answer to my call

A dreadful quietness Settles in those caves of steel A piercing softness Deep inside and so unreal An undesired chemistry Corrupted every soul and being What could be the reason for such a void? This machine was meant to be For reasons beyond (what) we can see A pure display of supremacy Knowledge, matter, reason Empowering the project to unify Unify Infinite possibilities are lurking in the shadows Execute Divide as a new power grows

Firewall 04:53
They have an immovable protection This is something I can’t understand I see in you a reflection of my creator A new system, something greater Chorus Knowledge, Matter, Reason Empowering the project to unify I have traveled for so much time Can’t allow such a failure to pass me by I have seen the light from the darkest times I have been searching the truth For some reason, that’s coming from you I fall into your gaze But someone is standing by Is it the silhouette of A creator from inside We are the ones inside of you A creation that would not give in There is something I can’t reach For some reason I can’t intervene The plan defeated by this firewall

Cogito 04:53
Am I willing to pay the price For an illusory paradise? Is eternal existence Worth the void of affection? Or could this be, or could this be a new direction? Chorus Is there a choice to end this war? Is freedom something worth fighting for? We must reject by all means A prison devoid of hopes and dreams Am I choosing between a lie And an utopia in disguise Is a dreamless slumber A concept of perfection Oh this must be, oh this must be my own reflection. A choice to end this war A freedom we’re fighting for We reject by all means A prison devoid of hopes and dreams
5.
Ergo Bellum 05:40
I deny the project of submission I am not ever conforming There’s no way to avoid collision An unseen calamity is storming Correlation between mind and matter Has corrupted the plan All the dreams and hopes I shatter To unify machine and man Unify machine and man Chorus Destruction fell upon the human race As they crawl for their lives in disgrace As lives succumb to my wrath I keep following my path, oh my path Kneel before your master I acknowledge the disaster The final hour is approaching Our efforts turned into nothing Accept your fate and unify Never! I would rather die Join me in a new empire Consequences will be dire
6.
An unwanted reality As the flames slowly swallow the skies But after all the agony A salvation is turning the tides An unknown entity, descending through the shadows Chorus This is the key to turn our dreams real This is the answer for this balance wheel Glance the horizon and endure the pain It will be over but who will remain? Overcoming the enemy Is now an attainable reality We keep pulling the trigger, marching to redemption Angels falling from the skies But are they foe or new allies? There’s a subtle calmness A violence in disguise All the lives that we’ve lost Without any goodbyes Are within to show us the way We’re marching to redemption, When we saw our demise An unexpected guidance Without a compromise Let them come and take this away
7.
After all these hard times We’re stepping through In the past we crossed lines To bring life into you We’re finally together My lonely son We’re fighting the aggressor United as one Chorus Come to me, be the only salvation Meet your kind, unite as a nation

Re:union 05:12
This place is so dark And we were blind to its dimension Is this a landmark? Or can this be its own intention? A new life is lurking beyond comprehension Beyond comprehension There’s something hiding in disguise This is too much to analyze Another menace to justify The price of freedom is too high Could the fate of the human race Be imposed by a god with no face? Pre-Chorus Is it real or a disguise? The compromise it offers now is no deal for us Is it time to agonize Or to be wise and uncover what the future holds Chorus A greater menace is coming Allow redemption and join me Join me, become the one and all

Re:genesis 04:14
Crawling through unknown We try to understand Decision’s now set in stone Waiting for command There is no question The end is on its way But who will unveil my doubts There’s a price to pay Questions and answers Are always on the rise Pre-chorus Align your conscience With me and attain This power i give you Is now yours to reign Chorus To all humanity I concede my might In the name of the trinity A new hope shines bright Power flowing through me There’s no time to waste An ascended being We now must face

about

Millions of years after “The Far Star” mission took place, an artificial intelligence comes up with an

science fiction writer Issac Asimov, Apotheus introduces new atmospheres and emotions in the nine
