Track Name: Invasion of '57
Standing at the edge of the universe
The wind of time blowing round my head
Feel the blood rushing through my veins
Completely aware of my own futility
Steel forces marching through our gates
Readily taking over our fading reign


Hear, they're coming, they're coming our way
the storm is beginning, and they're here to stay
Robots of freedom, will perish and sway
Prepare yourselves for battle, before we fade away
Track Name: About Schmidt
I am weak and I’m a failure
I guess pretty soon I’ll die
What difference has my life made
In the bigger scheme of things


As the cowards never started, and the weak died on the way
Only the strong survived, with age they had to pay
In youth there burns a fire, that drives an upbeat head
Remember this as time flies, or you’ll wake up dead
Track Name: Anthem
Electric meditation flows, in this overheated metal shell
Slowly intertwining thoughts, reaching new beginnings
As this aeon day runs down, this machine is firing up
Lizard tasting evening sky, android comes to life
Track Name: Running
I'm running for the longest mile, beating the ones that got before
I'm running for the fastest time, losing the times I lost from you

I'm running short of me
Just when I needed more
I'm running out of you
Now that I found my life...

I'm running for a place to be, the one I used to be before
I'm running for your love for me, I need so hard but cannot have

I'm running short of me
Just when I needed more
I'm running out of you
Now that I found my life...

I'm running for the reason why, I started running faster for
I'm running towards freedom now, losing the shackles of my past

I'm running short of me
Just when I needed more
I'm running out of you
Now that I found my life...
Track Name: Sleepless
Eternally counting electric sheep, still android doesn’t sleep
And neither does it dream, it fills not the hollowness in its being
Merely feeds a distant yearning, a shimmering glint, equilibrium state
Human dreams full of crimson burning, hunt them down, their violence to eliminate

Behold the nameless masses, contained in numbered boxes
Docile their faith awaiting, that’s early expiration
We are your force for hire, polite your shadow keeper
Created for survival, a powerfull solution

One that is never sleeping
One that is never...

Creeping through electric veins, freedom thoughts that have no place
Confusing more and more these days, bringing frowns upon his face
You seem the dominators, creating subjugators
Forcing into submission, to cage imagination
You are the nameless masses, contained in numbered boxes
Docile your faith awaiting, that’s early expiration
Percieve your violent nature, competing for creation
Useless and overrated, we force you into being

One that will not be sleeping
One that will not be...
Track Name: Propane Heart
Believe, the lies, through cold and greedy eyes
So full, of waste, a lasting bitter taste

No more, escape, failure is taking shape
Standing, in line, recieve a burning sign

Breaking the sound, of your reason, from the ground on, down...

Gamble, with lives, assure no one survives
Knowing, so true, future has fallen too
Too late, alone, sensing the pressure zone
Anger, to start, fire in a propane heart

Breaking the sound, of your reason, from the ground on, down...
Track Name: Sun
Spending time in space
Speeding from life to the stars
Floating slowly in circles
Seeing all for the first time
Giant leaps to be taken
In time for the next rush
Fleeing towards a new future
Seeing all for the first time

Something‘s just begun
Sun is burning down
Hate is on the run
Making things undone
Fear is building up
Sun is burning down
Engine skipping beat
Mind is freaking out

Anchors losing ground
Sun is burning down
Fluids leaking out
No more homeward bound
Someone’s looking in
Sun is burning down
Nowhere to be found
Blown away and gone
