about

With these hands, I write these words
So that in time, I shall be heard

At the end of 2010, a man named Jadusable posted a story on 4chan and YouTube involving a drowned boy named BEN who haunted an old Zelda cartridge. The story was a journey that played on your own expectations and wrapped many of us up in ways we didn't previously think possible. The story made you beLieve that you were a part of it. That this could happen to you.

When it was over, there was a void. I foolishly belIeved I could pick up the torch. That's when the nightmares started.

With each song on this album, I felt as if I was possessed by a force outside of my control. There is something brewing beneath the surface now. There is something haunting me. Creating through me. Making these sounds come out of me. My hands, my fingers, my voice, my mind, are no longer my own.

It is my hope that with the release of this album, I can release the demon. I can expunge him from my body and cleanse my soul. And I can trap him here. In this disc. In this album. In this music. I only pray that he will remain there, and not be unleashed onto your own life when you listen to it.

If that happens, then I am sorry. BeliEve me--it is not my intent to harm you or anyone else. There's only one thing I can say if things don't turn out the way I wanted them to.

You shouldn't have done that.

Track Name: Blue
Blurred faces, reflected spheres
Cutting deep into your fears
White noise bleeds into your ears
I've been hearing this for years
Mist gives way to tortured skies
See the darkness in my eyes
Hazed visions cloud my mind
Ragged flowers wither, die

Is this what I am meant to do?
To strip away and start anew
Repay the debts that I've accrued
As I watch it all fade to Blue

Darkened blackness, hide and seek
Survive strong and die the weak
Murder young and bleed the freak
Childhood is obsolete
Retreating back into the dune
See the passing of the moon
Breaking from within cocoons
Ancient prophet, misconstrewn

Is this what I am meant to do?
To strip away and start anew
Realities I slip into
As I watch it all fade to...

Is this what I am meant to do?
To strip away and start anew
Repay the debts that I've accrued
As I watch it all fade to Blue
Track Name: Seizure
Lying naked on the floor
A figure standing in the door
Crawling crying on the ground
Screaming doesn't make a sound

Splitting bone against the wall
Amazing you can think at all
Feeling sour sweet and sweat
Eclipses wrath and repaid debt
And now from darkness, there springs light
Cannot make it through the night
Blood red roots surround the rift
Through memories my body sifts

Convulsing hard on concrete floor
A shadow standing in the door
Crawling scraping on the ground
Try so hard to make a sound

Resolution seems so clear
My salvation almost near
Cower now at jagged maw
Nevermore bereft before
Resolution, sacred son
Down the barrel of a gun
Ascending forth to greater plane
Only to crash back down again

Lying naked on the floor
A shadow standing in the door

...Don't leave me alone

Lying naked on the floor
A figure standing in the door
Crawling crying on the ground
Screaming doesn't make a sound

Splitting bone against the wall
Amazing you can think at all
Feeling sour sweet and sweat
Eclipses wrath and repaid debt
And now from darkness, there springs light
Cannot make it through the night
Blood red roots surround the rift
Through memories my body sifts

Convulsing hard on concrete floor
A shadow standing in the door
Crawling scraping on the ground
Try so hard to make a sound

Resolution seems so clear
My salvation almost near
Cower now at jagged maw
Nevermore bereft before
Resolution, sacred son
Down the barrel of a gun
Ascending forth to greater plane
Only to crash back down again

Lying naked on the floor
A shadow standing in the door

In your eyes
Track Name: Abomination
Created by man
Created by God

Acid mercy
Message to all
Brainwash masses
Body sprawl

Defies every notion
Defies every law
Created by man
Created by God

Created by man
Created by God

Experiment serum
Horrid mutation
Error symptom
Gamma radiation

Abomination
Abomination
Track Name: Chronicle
Nothing left on this new earth
Nothing left for me to say
Nothing living in this world
Nothing left for me today

Burning fire rains decay
Blazing trails through blackened snow
In the shadow shining on
All we've got is what we know

Acid running through his veins
Just a sign of what remains
Sweeping through a twisted sun
A sure sign of what we've done

Tell me how we lost control
Striking solace from the heart
Red invaders from the skies
They have torn this world apart

Telling you just what you've done
Seething engines burn your head
Bleed the viscous liquid out
Line of corpses, trail of dead

Acid running through his brain
Just a sign of the insane
Sweeping through a twisted sun
A sure sign of what's to come
Track Name: Tolerance
Shoot it in, breathe it out
As it comes in large amounts
Makes you high, gets you low
Speeds you up, makes you slow
Druggie days, wasted youth
As goes on, learn the truth
Every day since seventeen
Makes me better, makes me mean

I did my job
Now you do yours
I did my job
Now you do yours

Falling back into the black
Memories of needle tracks
Swirling vortex, twisted dreams
Awaken to the sound of screams
Boiling pot, black cocaine
Burning crack, acid rain
Amphetamines, LSD
Hallucinations, ecstasy

I did my job
Now you do yours
I did my job
Now you do yours

I did my job
Now you do yours
I did my job
Now you do yours
Track Name: Tablets of Destiny
I. 3am

Reflection
Clarity
Infection
Sanity

I am coming
I am there
I am breathing
I am air

With these hands
I write these words
So that in time
I shall be heard


II. Questions

Do you know what it means
Means to be free?
And that if you exist
Then time shall not be missed?

Did you look in your mind?
Do you ask all the time?
Are you sure of yourself?
And of her need of help?

These are the questions that I ask myself

Is introspection wrong?
Is it all in need of song?
And what if it's a lie?
Will you fade into the sky?

These are the questions that I ask myself
And I ask no one else

How long will you wait?
Until your eyes are cold and grey?
Is the answer in your soul?
Will the answer make you whole?

These are the questions that I ask myself
And I ask no one else

No one else can understand
No one else will ever be...here
No one else will read these words
And no one else...will be free

On the eve of eclipse
On a night such as this
When the sun kisses moon
Then will I be there soon?

These are the questions that I ask myself
And I ask no one else
And I ask no one
I ask no one
I ask no one else...

"I am not afraid now. Now I know there are others like me, who can and will fight back. I will face the Truth.

Tomorrow is my enemy.

Many are my leader."

III. Unity

Death
Is just a question
Of your state of mind
Life
Is just a vision
Of where you stand
Death
It's just across
The veil of time
Life
Is just a place
To understand...

...understand...

Universe
Wrapped in its own trappings
We take the blade
Into our skin

And verse
And chorus
And poem
And song
And choir

And verse
And chorus
And poem
And song
And choir
And symphony...

...symphony...

Universe
Wrapped in its own trappings
We force the blade
Deeper within

...There's nothing left inside of me...now...

"You must all let go of your Hubris. You must all work as one. Unity is the only resource through which you can find the truth.

Go forth, my sons."
Track Name: Turtles
Skull, reborn
Hymen, torn
Religion, sex
Life, and death
Sacrifice, you bleed twice
Bones they wither, now come hither
Trust betrayed, the edges frayed
A corporate whore, who wants some more?

Turtle Crawls
Bodies Mauled
At world's Edge
Fluids Bled
Chrono Form
Breathe the Storm
System Failed
This ship Has sailed

Rip, tear
Blood, smear
Holy, sin
Rage, whim
Joker screams, "It's all a dream,"
Chaos breeds, what does it mean?!
Prayer faith, first love then hate
Venus' birth, to Gaea and Earth

Turtle Crawls
Bodies Mauled
At world's Edge
Fluids Bled
Chrono Form
Breathe the Storm
System Failed
This ship Has sailed

It's just Turtles
It's just Turtles
Turtles all the way down
Turtles all the way down

Heavy, books
Over, looked
Fascist, breath
Cerebral, death
Dormroom suite, rent apartment
Flatline complex, doom involvement
Signs detect, in retrospect
Cyborg churn, and fever burn

Turtle Crawls
Bodies Mauled
At world's Edge
Fluids Bled
Chrono Form
Breathe the Storm
System Failed
This ship Has sailed

It's just Turtles
It's just Turtles
Turtles

Turtles all the way down
Turtles all the way down
Turtles all the way down
Turtles all the way down

All the way down.
Track Name: Dolphin
"I can carry nearly 80 gigs of data in my head.

Upload begins...when you press here."

Hired gun
Information, courier new
Piece the code together
Message true
Fragmented images in your mind
Memory? Corruption? Seething brain
You want more every single time
You need to feel that rush again

"I want a full restoration; I want it all back!"

"Gotta hack your own brain..."

Breaking through
Dolphin signal scramble wave
Corporation
Cancer sickness have the cure
Broadcasting
Elapsing collapsing ever lasting
Traded away
Past versions (revisions) of yourself
For abilities beyond human belief
Doubler upgrade monetrade

I am a man
I am a machine
Ghost in the shell
Ghost in the machine

I am a man
I am a machine
Ghost in the shell
Ghost in the machine

A black flag sending up to sky
To let them know that she has died
A transformation kept inside
A cyborg woman, left to die
Righteous men shall dig the grave
So that one day shall be defaced
Rampage solstice metal gear
Braintrust mounted through the years
Human failure cause the shakes
Scorched skies and earthquakes
A cure for people's virus found
Broadcast out into the now
Lifestream datastream upstream down
Torrential connection media drown
VCRs and recording taps
Analog tape and digital caps

I am a man
I am a machine
Ghost in the shell
Ghost in the machine

I am a man
I am a machine
Ghost in the shell
Ghost in the machine

"What causes it? The world causes it! INFORMATION OVERLOAD! All the electronics around you, poisoning the airwaves! Technological fucking civilization! But we still have all this shit, because we can't live without it!"

I have nothing left to fear
No memories of my past years
Nothing to endanger me
Nothing to remind me
Realization of emptiness
Desire to fulfill my conciousness
I need it now, to feel alive
To feel as though I've rectified

To keep my needs and wants at bay
To make the man who did this pay
I will do anything
Even give up everything

"Hit me."

"The dolphin can take you to the data..."
Track Name: Echomachine
I will make it through my destiny
I am who controls my destiny
I will tell the tale of my destiny
I am who will reach my destiny

Bouncing off the walls, Echomachine
Killing everything, Echomachine
Breaking through the walls, Echomachine
Deafaning everything, Echomachine

You will not control my destiny
You will answer to my destiny
You cannot control my destiny
You and I, entwined, my destiny

Retreating to the dune, Echomachine
Protected in my shell, Echomachine
To find the core inside, Echomachine
Into the depths of Hell, Echomachine

Echomachine
Echomachine
Echomachine
Echomachine

Echomachine
Track Name: Blasphemer
I have been here all along
I have heard what you said of me
I have listened and watched and pondered
And I've decided I must do something
I have tried to tell you
Tried to get the message out
But still you didn't listen
Now I know without a doubt

You will not respond to empty threats
Or things that don't concern you
So, now, to make you understand
I must speak to you the truth

I am the Alpha, the Omega
The creator of all you see
And if you do not change your ways
Then soon, you will face me
I am the God of which you spake
Whose name you took in vain
And if you don't cooperate
Then things will never be the same

Now here are the terms that I've laid out
You must agree or face my wrath
You can proceed on to Oblivion
Or you can take the righteous path
Make your decision now, my boy
But choose so carefully
For know that once you make a choice
You can never...
Return to me

You can never return to me...
You can never return to me...
You can never return to me...

...I see.
Proceed on your way to Oblivion.

I have tried to reach your God
And I have waited far too long
I have tried to reach your God
And I have waited far too long

All things change
To evolve
To meet with God
To see the world through
His eyes
The universe
Is laughing

I AM THE GOD OF WHICH YOU SPAKE
I AM THE GOD, THE GOD
I AM THE GOD OF WHICH YOU SPAKE
I AM THE GOD
Track Name: Neon Genesis
Bleeding nightmare
Of unfelt guilt
Synthesized it
Evolutionary stilt

Fifteen years
Of cautious peace
Man's distrust
Has not decreased

Mankind's last hope
That we revere
Deep underground
Within the sphere

We changed the course
Synthetic life
Not made by God
But by our might

We were so careless
Our pride was burnt
Some lessons were not
Meant to be learnt

So make your choice
Do or do not
Will to survive
Or have you forgot?

Beginning and end Are all the same
But you must ask Who is to blame?
Born from Adam Raised by Eve
The tangled webs Of which we weave
Hear our words For they ring true
It will be the End of you
We leave this note To you, our sons
That playing God Should not be done

Fate of destruction
Joy of rebirth
What have you done
To prove your worth?

Seize the future
Brave your fears
When there is action
Meaning appears

So to make our mark
On this world of ours
We called out to the Moon
To the Earth and the Stars

And we screamed to the skies
"What have we done?!"
For the Devil's work
Should have never been done

But when we all
Are forgotten
Eternal proof
Of where we've been

In mankind's hands
We cannot trust
We crumble now
And Fade To Dust

Alpha and Omega Are both the same
But we had to ask Is God to blame?
Spawned from Adam Cursed by Eve
The tangled webs That we perceive
Hear these words The blade rings true
It shall be the End of you
We leave these words To you, our sons
That playing God Shall not be done

Means and ends
Just simple words
But what they mean
Is still unheard

Still regretting
All we've done
Annihilation
Nova sun

To take it back
The clock rewind
But we cannot
Our fates resigned

Our fathers' words
We listened not
Mother Nature's plan
Her vengeance wrought

But we deserved it
We went too far
We should have known
What the limits are

And now the ending
To what we planned
We stand here silent
On the sand

Start and finish Is all the same
But the question's there Are we to blame?
Torn from Adam Raped by Eve
Our faith in God Was so naive
Now heed these words For they bleed true
This has been the End of you
So leave this message To you, our sons
That playing God Will not be done

And so I leave you Message intact
T'was all a lie And that's a fact
Don't bother now It's too late for me
We'll live somehow In infamy
Track Name: Termina
Sleeping giants
Awakened
From eternal rest
Oath to order calls
Forth the beast
Demon mask
Hides within
Seperation
Is the only barrier

Elegy
Keeps the beast alive
Closure
Is needed now
History repeats
Without knowing
Trapped inside
Energy within
Hubris
Seperates the path

Merging entities
Collective conciousness, you are now free
Evolve past, the human form
Prelude to darkness
We deserve everything we get
Tortured, beaten alive
Doesn't matter what we say
End of the world, tryptch patterns grace your path
Pull your sword closer to your chest
Desire for chaos
Lifetimes slipping through the cracks
Parallels and elliptic tracks
And everything
Everything is all inside
Of your mind

WAKE UP!
WAKE UP!
WAKE UP!
WAKE UP!
From this dream
From this...tortured
Reality
Nothing stands between you and I
Eye for an eye

Deity
Only hope
Ancient peoples
Sealed, away

The beast...sleeps...
The beast...sleeps...

AWAKENING!
AWAKENING!
AWAKENING!
AWAKENING!
Giants awaken
Destroying all in way
Eclipsed
Power beyond all belief
Atoned for sins
Long since forgotten
Forgiveness
Is not an option anymore
You will watch this world
Perish
Again and again
And again and again
And again and again
AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
AND AGAIN AND AGAIN

WAKE UP!
From this tortured reality
WAKE UP!
Eye for an eye
WAKE UP!
Our deity, our deity
WAKE UP!
Oath to order calls
WAKE UP!
Our deity, our deity
