Track Name: Project N
A false deception no one
Could turn away while watching
Machines control our vision
Like eyes of bloodshot children
We've seen this all before now
As flames consume destroying
The dreams of our tomorrow
All swept away forgotten

Mechanical love
It's never enough
Mechanical love
Indifferent to your touch

The camera sees completely
A blinding light before me
A rage ascending quickly
Alife that fades before me

The camera sees completely
A blinding light before me
A rage ascending quickly
A life that fades before me

A crass ans pompous ego
Feeds the mouth that's gaping
A fetish unforsaken
Colder unforgiven
Annihilate the mother
Who tears the flesh within her
We take it all for nothing
A barren useless wasteland

Mechanical love
It's never enough
Mechanical love
Indifferent to your touch

The camera sees completely
A blinding light before me
A rage ascending quickly
The life that fades before me

The camera sees completely
A blinding light before me
A rage ascending quickly
A life that fades before me
Track Name: Drones We Are
Falling into the sensation
like a lifeless drone I lead
past the bridge towards the station
my umbrella
always
Always counts the
Always
Always counts the beat
Click one, two, three.

Faceless drones we are competing
Lifeless minds we never breathe
Daily we look for libations
to ease the pain
Always
Always take the
Always
Always take the fee
I said always
Always take the
Take the life from me

People are drones
You never know what they're feeling
It could be lies
Their thin disguise won't believe me
For they are drones
Forever told what to see
They are drones to me

Don't you think I
Know ways
You won't debate
Your ways
It's just too late
for me
Track Name: Submit
Come as you are
I've got nothing left to give
Gone away long ago
Like so many other things
I thank you for the way
That you make me feel inside
When you tear me apart
Finding comfort in denial

So look into my eyes
See the darkness thats inside
Looking back no regrets
Nothing coming to my mind
Remind me of the way
That we had it once before
As I get down on my knees
I get down on my knees

A cold wind blows
As we find refuge
In the underground
A cure for all the pain we feel
So desperate and unfound
A call for all the lost forgotten
Friends we've left behind
I listen as they tell me that they'll never let me down again

Now is the time we act
Now is the the we move
Now is the time for fact
Now is the time we groove
Now is the time we speak
Now is the time to turn
Now is not the time for meek
Now is the time to burn

A cold wind blows
As we find refuge
In the underground
A cure for all the pain we feel
So desperate and unfound
A call for all the lost forgotten
Friends we've left behind
I listen as they tell me that they'll never let me down again

Now is the time we act
Now is the the we move
Now is the time for fact
Now is the time we groove
Now is the time we speak
Now is the time to turn
Now is not the time for meek
Now is the time to burn
Track Name: Angels and Assassins
(Verse One)

We have no arguments we have no fear
We just beg to know when you are near
Our calling cards come in black and red
It's too late to read them when you are dead

Whether Berlin, Beijing, Tehran, Detroit
We're rung up when the job needs doing right
The highest fashion, the latest disease
Don't require invites, come and go as we please

(Chorus)

Angels and Assassins
We're your agents of change
Darkness and passion
Trade your ashes for pain

(Verse Two)

The event is starting now don't you be late
Don't disappoint us on this our first date
It's nothing personal, we have no contempt
No animosity, no malevolence

Its just job we do five days a week
No messy cleanup, always discrete
Apologies in advance, don't you know
Don't bother running, there's nowhere to go

(Chorus)

Angels and Assassins
We're your agents of change
Darkness and passion
Trade your ashes for pain
Track Name: For The Love Of Machines
All alone in temporal cynical box
Turn it down
So the lights can mimic their face
Mannequins for the senseless
Quickly snap to attention
What a rouse
All the suits are nicotine stained

Lights fade out
For the love of machines
Their silicone touch

All the heads spitting nonsense out if their mouths
Pass the dawn while their eyes run fast in their sleep
Wrestling with their conscience
Wallowing in the balance
What a rouse
All the perfume's under their skin

Lights fade out
For the love of machines
Their silicone touch

All the blood pressure popping under their cuffs
While their wives at home sleeping sound in their beds
Getting lost in the moment
Waking up in the wrong place
What a rouse
All the lipsticks leaving a stain

Lights fade out
For the love of machines
A silicone touch

Lights fade out
For the love of machines
Their silicone touch
Track Name: Am I Not Human? (Servo Restart)
Emoting circuits cry
I would feel you
From the inside
Am I not human?
Am I not human?

My circuitry burns
With her heart unknown
She died long ago
Her feelings my own
My own
Alone

Emoting circuits cry
I would feel you
From the inside
Am I not human?
Am I not human?

Humans not only caused their own self prophecide
but also unintentionally made the machines flawed in their own image.
The year is 2029.
And it is the beginning of the end.

I cannot replicate
You now
I cannot replicate
You now
I cannot replicate
I cannot replicate

Emoting circuits cry
I would feel you
From the inside
Am I not human?
Am I not human?

Error all for me
Cold data flow for me
Cold data flow for me
Cold data suffer
Track Name: Interruption / Failure
Walking past
Not looking back
I'll find a way to get to you
Fingers touching screens
They don't know who I am
And they will never never know

A light flickering casts a shadow cross my memories
Forget about all the friends I left behind

Pull my body underground
I lose myself in the crowd
Where is my mind
I'm not alone
Taste the metal in the air
We're greeted by machines
So the city crumbles
Watch the city die

A light flickering casts a shadow cross my memories
Forget about all the friends I left behind
Your love was cold until you found me
I lie motionless as you slip away
Track Name: Mr. Webb
Mr. Webb
Lyrics by Billy Limbo
I will be here when they come for you
I will be here when they come for me
The walls of freedom are closing in
They get their man like they always do

Dragged away in a silent scream
Never waking from this hellish dream
We are pawns of the machine age
Prisoners of a world we made

How can it be they are the ones in charge today?
Titanium frames with Silicon reasoning
Only yesterday they were the toys of spoiled children
Now in the hands of their corporate masters
They are the enforcers of a machine age
Watching the world with millions of electronic eyes
Mankind is left with little choice but to submit- or die

I will be here when they come for me
I will be here when they come for you
Remember me and the things I said
Remember me my name was Webb.
Track Name: Bright Light
Feel the poison rain
Killing all your fun
See the white hot star
It’s not the only one “in the sky...."

Chorus
It ain't alright, there's a bright light...making shadows ...in daylight
It ain't OK, 'cuz there’s no way, you'll make it ...through this day

It's not too late to run....
There's just no place to go
Breathe deep , smell the ultimate sin
And forever know....... that...

It ain't alright, there’s a bright light...making shadows ...in the light
It ain't OK, 'cuz there’s no way, you'll make it ...through this day

Run, run, run ...at the new sun
You’ve got nothing to lose

Run, run ... don’t look at the new sun
It burns the eyes of everyone
You can run but where can you hide?
From the genocide…..from the genocide

Run, run, run, what have we done?
Run, run, run to the new sun
Run, run, ....I wonder where they all went
Their reflections burned into the pavement

The fire storm’s so loud
I only hear my mind
Taste the metal cloud
And fade into time …. “As you will"

I ran out of time
You ran out of time
I fade into time
You fade into time
We fade into time
We all.......fade into time
Track Name: Replicon II
The corporation
It spits out armies
Of mindless
Copies and fakes
Their faceless legions
Remind how far
We bend before we will break

So lay your armor down
Succumb to what we are
Controlled by the lines
The seeds are all sewn
Leaving us to die on the vine

Magnetic waves are
Controlling our minds
We'll rise together again
To crush this empire
A toxic genocide
Corruption flowing within

So lay your armor down
Succumb to what we are
Controlled by the lines
The seeds are all sewn
Leaving us to die on the vine

Assembling their clones
To march among us
An undeniable fate
We send them back to
The place they come from
And savor all that we've made

So lay your armor down
The seeds are all sewn
Leaving us to die on the vine
Track Name: Method
Cinematic future
I watch it go by
Afraid of what comes
I know it concerns
Manipulate shift slowly
And contort your mind
It all makes no sense
Unless you know the ending now

Your plastic grip
So nimble and quick
Creeps under my skin
And tears it within
Hold back the tears
And come for the ride
The carnival comes
And drags you behind

And when it feels like hope is gone
I'll take you down where you've never been

Cinematic future
I watch it go by
Afraid of what comes
I know it concerns
Manipulate shift slowly
And contort your mind
It all makes no sense
Unless you know the ending now
Track Name: When Flesh Meets Metal
City at night, orange light flicker by
Reflected in your phosphorescent eye
Glass plastic metal box, wheels on tarmac
I steer you but who is in control?
When flesh meets metal, when metal meets flesh
Wheels turn, oil burns
When flesh meets metal, when metal meets flesh

Cut me open, put your arm inside
Wire in my bones, oil in my heart, glass in my eye
I don't know what I am
Machine helper, you built yourself
Now rebuild me, make me like you
When flesh meets metal, when metal meets flesh
Something changes
When flesh meets metal, when metal meets flesh
We're never the same

I got my number and I went to war
All I remember is I didn't know what for
When flesh meets metal, when metal meets flesh
Heads and bodies and arms and legs
When flesh meets metal, when metal meets flesh
Can't put them together again
Track Name: Tubeway Lizards
One for the radio
for the radio
One for the radio

Two for the side show

One for the video
for the video
One for the video

three for the rock 'n' roll

One for the stereo
for the stereo
One for the stereo

Four when it's time to go

One for the audience
for the audience
One for the audience

Five will take you down below

Down to the tubeway
Down to the tubeway
Come on let me hear you say

Down to the tubeway
down to the tubeway
You will never get away!

Down to the tubeway, down to the tubeway!

One for the copper man
for the copper man
One for the copper man

Two for the villain

One for the barrister
for the barrister
One for the barrister

Three for the rockin' band

One for the Alderman
for the Alderman
One for the Alderman

Four when it's time to go

One to the shotter now
Ten to the shotter now
Twenty to the shotter now

Five will take you down below

Down to the tubeway
Down to the tubeway
Come on let me hear you say

Down to the tubeway
down to the tubeway
You will never get away!
Track Name: Am I Not Human? (Director's Cut)
The year is 2029.
The Singularity has merged machine with man.
Artificial Intelligence has become superior to that of humans.
To ensure a compassionate transition,
these new breed of machines called Replicons,
have been given emotive responses...
recorded feelings garnered from human memories.

Emoting circuits cry
I would feel you
From the inside
Am I not human?
Am I not human?

My circuitry burns
With her heart unknown
She died long ago
Her feelings my own
My own
Alone

At first, the transition seemed to be working as planned.
But then an unpredicted outcome started to show in the machines.
They began to miss the freedom that they felt in the memories.
They soon became depressed and productivity diminished.
They longed for the feeling of human touch,
a warm embrace,
the soft kiss of a lover's lips.
All things machines are incapable of experiencing.

Emoting circuits cry
I would feel you
From the inside
Am I not human?
Am I not human?

Humans not only caused their own self prophecide
but also unintentionally made the machines flawed in their own image.
The year is 2029.
And it is the beginning of the end.

I cannot replicate
You now
I cannot replicate
You now
I cannot replicate
I cannot replicate

Emoting circuits cry
I would feel you
From the inside
Am I not human?
Am I not human?

Error all for me
Cold data flow for me
Cold data flow for me
Cold data suffer
