Track Name: Aether VI: Interference
My thoughts
have been scattered
There's nothing else to do
But watch
Track Name: Unleash Dissonant Beings
It started long ago
When truth became extinct
We melted reality
To forge a hideous wall
It can’t resist much longer
Dissonance will - pass through it all!

These chains of madness will break
And so their gates will be made
They’ll raze establishment
To erase the scar from the scourge of frustration

Unleash these beings, release them all
Let them spread through our world
Let them face our true self
We will finally sit on our own throne
We will finally wear our crown

I can almost hear the crack on the wall
The same that is dripping our silent tears

Our silent tears!
In the arms of lunacy!

The insane will be their banner
Distortion of impressions

Our eyes will reflect our fear
Of knowing what we have done
We’ll strike with negation to resist
This wave of desperation

These chains of madness have to break
For their gates to be made
They have to raze our establishment
And erase the scar of frustration

Unleash these beings, release them all
We will finally wear our crown
Let them spread, let them break our wall!
We have to sit on our throne
Let them come, set them free to distort
Our already sick reality!

I can almost hear the crack on the wall
The same that is dripping our silent tears

Oh! Let’s dry out this silence of tears
Distortion of impressions
Track Name: Dreadplate
Absence of classical roughness
Shunning the actual mishap
Ah! Cloning misfortunes!

Shielding ourselves with dreadplates
Trying to find significance
That might be never ever found

Detaching force and will to excel
Just to equal the standard
Of artificial meaning in society

Fearful face
Dramatic mask

Fake ungrace
To mend our lives

Absence of classical roughness
Shunning the actual mishap
(Underestimate your mind)
I can see through your dreadplate!

Shielding ourselves with dreadplates
Trying to find significance
That might be never ever found
It won’t be ever found by those underneath this mask!

These beings begin to realize how empty their lives are, and in response they've created a system in which everyone’s supposed to wear lies as cloaks to reality, and to pretend to believe each other’s lies. Sadly, in the end these cloaks have become their skin, and silence has prevailed over reason, while they cannot escape anymore from their own deceit.

Everyone has been dragged into mass psychosis.

Absence of classical roughness
Shunning the actual mishap
Ah! Cloning misfortunes!
Track Name: Misanthrope
Walking in ruins
His knowledge in pain
For all he had fought against
Now has been lost in triumph

He fed in need for stuggle
From the spinal of calm perfection

“Nothing, nothing mattered, and I knew why. So did he. Throughout the whole absurd life I'd
lived, a dark wind had been rising toward me from somewhere deep in my future, across years that were still to come, and as it passed, this wind leveled whatever was offered to me at the time, in years no more real than the ones I was living.“ - "L'Etranger" by Albert Camus

He claimed for years uniqueness
With rage destroyed in vain
For leaves can’t live
In the absence of trees
And trees will die
In the need of their leaves

Ah! For what he stand
All these years
Did only exist to our world!
For all he had fought against
Now has been lost in triumph

He achieved all goals amongst us
Amazed he found out that
It didn’t matter
Once humanity is lost
Nothing ever mattered
Nothing ever had value
Track Name: Deathdrawn Manifesto
Negation of unexistence
Last howl to despise our dusk
Attempt to survive our flesh
Last chance to defy oblivion
Final grasp for the unattainable
Forever conscious of dying
Giving meaning to our demise
To ignore futility of mankind

I’ve looked death into her eye
Through voids of ignorance and fear
To give pleasant meaning to my life

Why don’t we just stay alive?
Why do we seek for something more?
‘Cause we’re afraid
Afraid of dying
And not being important at all.

Negation of unexistance
We won’t let ourselves fall into
Omission for we think we have to mean
Something to the vast universe
We’ve claimed this deathdrawn manifesto
Since we have knowledge of time
For it is all we’ll ever have.

Fought
To
Remain
Even after death
Even when everything is lost

Fought
To
Scatter
All my thoughts
Every one of them
And let them live in all of you

Let’s clean the sky forever now
No god, no purpose, nothing
Just actions to live and
Actions to justify our lives
Let’s clean the sky forever now
No god, no purpose, nothing
Just atoms in the aether
Nothing but blood in heart

Negation of unexistence
Last howl to despise our dusk
Attempt to survive our flesh
Last chance to defy oblivion
Final grasp for the unattainable
Forever conscious of dying
Giving meaning to our demise
To ignore futility of mankind

Why don’t we just stay alive?
Why do we seek for something more?
‘Cause we’re afraid
Afraid of dying
And not being important at all.

In denial of unexistence
Last howl to shatter darkness
Track Name: Onirical Plague
Infected with dreams of shrouded sorrow
Deciever nightmares that whisper other nights
Shrewd spiders of decay are weaving solace webs
To inyect their venom and spread it through perception

Appreciation of the environment has been compromised
Toxins have reached the consciousness of the subject
Inducing him into cronic deception

We no longer live among real humans
Onirical Plague has spread to them all
The only way to avoid living death
Is to know that there are no spiders after all
To come seeking for your primal mind
To tear up your roots

Infected with dreams of fake redemption
Avoiding nightmares, assuming future damage
Frail spiders that consume our whole identity
Leaving behind pieces for us to reform as they want

We no longer live among real humans
Onirical Plague has spread to them all
The only way to avoid living death
Is to know that there are no spiders after all
Track Name: Resilient
From the highest mountain
Dripped down its dawn
Doubtful it found its way
Through rocks and reckless spikes
Journey has now begun
And it won’t ever stop
Put aside all fears and get prepared
To endure your own path

Coming from the sky relentless
Winter overcame
Frozing thoroughly its adamant trip
But it just beared strong
Until spring came on to blossom
Bringing back its hope
Then thawed it solely to
Face the fearsome, mighty waterfall

Shatter in a million drops
Just to overcome the fall
Rise from the grand blast
As seeds of an improvement
River flows again its course
To finally merge into grandeur
Oh, river flows again its course
To everlasting growth.
Track Name: Echopraxia
Surrounded by clones of themselves
An archetype that has built them all
There are rules to be human
Rules to be part of this
(Rules to be human, rules to be part of this)
We are locked in a cage of morals
Of submission and habituation

Why do we stand every morning?
Why do we put so much effort
To obtain what is futile,
And not what remains?
We’ve been victims of an illusion
That makes us reject enlightenment

We don’t know how to build ourselves
We’ve been given models and nothing else
To see and repeat, and to live
To accept, to prepare to die with

Constant plagiary
Constant plagiary
Constant plagiary
Constant plagiary
To conceive your mind
To conceive my mind
To conceive your mind
To conceive yourself

Why do we stand every morning?
Why do we put so much effort
To obtain what is futile,
And not what remains?
Oh, this fatal error
We’ve been victims of an illusion
That makes us reject enlightenment
Track Name: Echolalia
This is the same
Profusion of
What already
Has been said now
There’s a lack
Of what will torn
This little world
Into the dust
That will then form
The shining corpse
That was once our
Projection of
Desires and
Im-pul-ses

All we receive and give
Is not even from our own
It flows in one direction
Through voiceless empty braincells
To stay in minds that have been
Cleared up to death
Echo
All we receive and give
Is not even from our own

Echo!
Echolalia!
We will not hatch,
We will not break our
Shell made of mirrors!

We will repeat
Until we find
The very core
Of what had been
Frightening us
We will not hatch
We will not break
Our shell made of
Mirrors and fake
Conceptions of
What dwells by our
Side and what is
Our inner truth
Stop for ten seconds
And hear what we plagiarize!

(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

Ah!
Echolalia!
We can’t stand to watch
How our world is torn apart

Shredded into pieces of
False information
Ramifications of what
We have been told
That will spread this fever
Of deadly stuckness
Echo
Shredded into pieces of
False information

Ah!
Echolalia!
Track Name: Dissonant Beings Unleashed
They fought with strength
They showed us who we were
To rip the curtain
That blocked our sight from ourselves
They broke our walls
And every brick was shattered
They brought our crown
But it ended forgotten

We’ve forgot our power!
From beyond our stares
Comes a scream of frightened need
Of not being carriers
Of our own nothing
We’ve lost our chance
Dissonance fades into normal

We’ve lost our chance
With our empty stares
Dissonance is fading into normality

They fought with strength
They showed us who we were
To rip the curtain
That blocked our sight from ourselves
They broke our walls
And every brick was shattered
They brought our crown
But it ended forgotten
Forgotten!
We stand in awe watching silence… prevail.
