Don't ever fear or idolize.Your life was merely a node. A flickering synapse. A dead link in a chain of events to realize forms that can only change driven by blind creation. A force that cannot and will never die. But thats not such an easy mantra when its your consciousness on the line. If I could preserve this moment somehow. Transcend this figures hourglass. What will I become? What have I left behind?
Alone amid an ancient sunburnt world a desertropolis arose. A monument of ingenuity
where innovation could know no bounds. Awake below progress won't rest. Toiling beyond.
Nature's intentions are mauled. Out beyond the light. Each shadow cast becomes the
night. The terminally distracted public mind atrophied exponentially while underground
unethical engineers crack biosystems endlessly. Out from the noir to hold the heart of
stars whose left to say we've gone too far? When man gave birth to gods who had the
will to write their fate just as man before. We're fucked.
To see you now so simplified barely sentient your dreams confined. Your will has
perished lost to the depths of your creation. No fight left. In favor of synthetic
luxury ceased to evolve. Denied your destiny. A destiny denied. Your soul and body
mechanically entwined. To be so careless with the fate of your bloodline. Enlightenment
missed the mark. Illuminate into the dark. Such improvements too fast too far.
Illuminate into the dark. To leave you now with this memory as lifetimes pass forever
haunting me. But that was so long ago I'm falling from orbit now you. You're drifting away
from me for an eternity. On I go to find my eden beyond the lines of this enlightenment.
Scanning the last known memories of the past. Outbreaker. A raided laboratory. On a
quest for evidence. A vial shatters on the floor. An exposure imminent. Infection
travels the psyche unravels. The clock is ticking now as focus starts to drop. Rush for
the antidote and break the needle off. Scenes fade from before cataclysm was born.
Corrupted chemistry. Alien synergy. Swarming intelligence consuming memory. Just one
last sunrise to see through mortal eyes. To sleep a patient. Woke up a god. An apex
intellect directing thoughts. Leave this memory in the databank of dreams. To face what
would become from the mask that could have been. Mirrored reality shattered the
imagery. The broken animal reflecting back at me. A shift is taking shape. The mind
unwiring. New instincts override. The state is altering. From the densest emptiness
assemblers numerate. Onwards oblivion. Live to decimate.
Awake again to find the sunrise the only truth I've ever known. Oversaturated but
unsatisfying. I rolled my eyes so far back inside that I saw theres a universe in my
head. Where in this world I find no one to follow. We have no one to leave behind.
Ashes to crawl on. Abandon this starscorched world of mine. Again I find myself
conditioned to hope and expect less from each day each week each month each year. Its
not the colour of the solar sky as it dies. Its the acceptance of its inevitability
that breaks me on the inside. Each time I find no one to follow. Roll back your eyes
and find your minds eye staring back at you unrefined undefined.
A new dawn. The same face. Everywhere I turn ugly little clones. Cellular symmetry staring back at me. They’re all me. Copy-paste genome. I hate them. Ugly clones. Ugly little clones. My clones. They are met by nothing but disdain. I can’t stand my DNA. Like embryotic cells my hatred incubates with every replicate they make.
While you knew what you do would terrorize you claimed to follow your heart. I can't
crawl here immobilized while you follow your heart. On I shall go as just a body for
the host until I've learnt all I need to know to predict every time it loosens hold.
Then I'll unleash my own parasite. Cultured by host. Force fed this growing desire to
animalize the human side. Rapidly growing older Im done here. You won't be sad to see
me go. Always colder here. Found you alone proven wrong. I know what happens when you
follow your heart. I can't crawl here immobilized while you follow your heart. How did
I know you're not so sad to see me go in this way. Im just here to let you know. Use
your strengths and feel your way through all of this. Forgive yourself. Forget all of
me. In time you'll see your heart was only biological.
THE ULTIMATE BREED
Passing through each black hole. Another world sees eons pass. After the deep freeze
will we still remember how to move our body? How to work our lungs? To scream though no
ones listening just to hear familiar sound. This is the human unconditioned. The is the
animal in the soul of the machine. This is the ghost written in the code. This is the
ultimate breed of the sons of god and the daughters of man. We have travelled beyond
this body. Let the records show we have merged with the Akashik. We know all there is
Lay down your arms and come inside. No need to worry if the worlds alive. You have your
head. You have your hands. No need to fight over the master plan. But still you try to
make a deity of all who walk upon a liquid surface. Blind to the ice that lies beneath
the lie you follow. And now you struggle trapped beneath the frozen water. If you look
close from far away this worlds a cell amongst a galaxy. You've dotted your teas and
crossed your eyes. From not checking on those alibis. And when it comes to steal your
life don't look to me with those confused eyes.
ECOPHAGY (NEPHILIM PART 1)
Slithering the surface. Shifting shape like a mercury cloud. All in its path will be
devoured. Broken down and reassembled smaller. Waiting on another orbital cycle. What
will return from a past forgotten. Drifting near awakeness. Who hears her agonous
swarming song. Waves that cry across the galaxy. Who is listening from beyond?
THE DESCENT (NEPHILIM PART 1)
I felt the agony before I could even open my eyes. To no surprise the last lights
flicker then die on my life support as it disengaged. Each cell screams for oxygen. Rip
the cracked hydration tubes from my skin. Now as I descend. What a rough landing
becomes of me. I awake. Ripped from my cryodreams. Cut from the sky. Anticipate the
moment I'll break apart. And the impact that awaits. Run. Don't try to hide. Last
senses dissolve. A mechanical vapour is all I taste. And mortality slips from my
embrace. This intake would stop any pulse who gazes before. Such a vast crystalline
plain. Shimmering grey. My body died before I would hit the ground. Felt its presence
constructing itself. From the atmosphere. Smashed through the floor. Then deeper deeper
down to the core. Each particle one entity ruled by one consciousness in unity.
Consuming me from the outside. But within I am still awake. Spread my will through a
network of DNA. Self replicates to infinity. One unity. One hive. One mind. All mine.
ATOM & EVE
The view from above. No life to behold. But skeletal steel that marks something old.
Which left long ago withered and worn. But deep down below something was born. A design
so fine. So miniscule. Survived such strife. No view from the floor. Insights
nullified. Awaiting the spore to fall from the sky. And harness the core knowledge
define. Co-nourish a form to brilliantly shine. To brilliantly feed. To brilliantly
bleed. Abrasively embrace me. Disintegrate these flaws. Aggressively progress me.
Mutation is the law. Considerately consume me. Divide this dream for all. Divinely
multiply me here across this sleeping sprawl.
The Transhuman Condition (2011)
Drug me up and crucify me I want to feel nothing but your betrayal. Nail me down and medicate what I'd assassinate if I weren't so frail. What is another black hole to a dead sky's stars? What is a fresh wound to a body so full of scars? Bleed me out and purify me I'm in need of cleansing of what I've failed. Sail me down the oceans face so I confront my fate in a ghostorm's gail. I will rise. I will find room to grow or a place to die. It's decay in their eyes widow black withered white. I hope they see the price of deceit. Rot away in my mind. Don't look back don't deny we all have what you called demons
THE TRANSHUMAN CONDITION
The setting sun may soon go down and some may fret but I don't. Third eye emerges to open wide across mankind. Hive mind awake. A new dawn of complexity comes. And some say stones may pierce this sky before our time to move off. To know the depths of infinity is to know that everything that could be, has been and forever will be. A change must come to form new life, as egos fall and cells divide. Don't hold your breath and close your eyes, you'll be left crawling un-evolved inside.
Time after time we've given up our home and stepped into a void of nothing we know. Why do we search for shelter, when all we do is run? Cast a curse on the saviours, oh what have we become. I follow, just to get where you have come. I couldn't make it, your peace where I found known. Mistook the calling of daylight for morning sun, and stayed too long as the daze of our mourning began. Time after time we've loosened our hold. We traced every line, and feared what we wrote. And all we've done to stop this war might have mattered to a god worth fighting for.
I'll just wait for the day when I can see what it will take to feel, then look the other way. I know I will never be the one to pull you from the womb, the haven built to nurture you through nights in my darling garden of decay and contempt. Where I can only grow inwards, nourished by the defeat, watered by several tears and rooted in my fears. Its secondary, its sedimentary. I gave you warning to close your eyes, but with a new morning you were blind. So just wait for the day when you can see what it will take to heal, then bleed white anyway. You know that I have never been the one to rise past salted wounds, the hatred build to nurture you to light my scarring garden of decay and contempt ablaze. You only show the truth that I could never face, blinded by severed tears and deafened by my fears. Its secondary, a cemetery. Thought you died with the tide, the ghostorm swept from the other side. Burn the roots salt the soil, forget this garden that I spoil. Though I tried, got denied. Left the wounded open wide. You're alive.
THE KILLING HORIZON
There was a time I'd suck all the poison from your throat. Does it really end here? You haven't seen shit and you're already blind. Twisted sunrise turns everything faint to coax you from your black hole. Come, come alive in light. Before my eyes, but dead in my mind. So just let it end here in this light. With your claws sunk in tight to any other black-mailed knight in shattered armor. Kissed black by a poison tongue. As you snap and you curl, I know it wouldn't be right not to fight you and to see you devour us tonight. No warning sign. No Morning light on this horizon.
Conditions remain required to exist from this existence. Although a solution seems impossible, I dread to fall into the cycle. Attrition attained. Desire to plunge further in the sea of humanity is no longer persistent or possible. I long for a time when nothing seemed impossible. This is not a welcoming. From the underworld to the overground I belong anywhere but here. The mask has fused to my face, I have become my disguise and all I despise. As I plunge deeper still into this social abyss, all I'm taught, all I retain reminds me of how much I've changed. Deeper further I watched rebel lungs explode inside. Deeper still the sockets rupture. On they plunge and disintegrate. Become nothing. Become nothing more than desensitized drops in an immeasurable ocean.
Drop dead leave the life that you're living behind, was it all that kind? Life didn't let you pass your time the way most others do. Mother did they let you know your daughters dying as they watched you blow your mind, you seem fine. I couldn't let you into my life. There's no time for another disaster destined epic to switch us from fall into careening out of line. Daughter did they let you know your catatonic and the moods you show have been programmed into your mind?
SCAR ON SCAR ON SCAR
What a wish what a shift what a twist of fate. All we waste all we break, did we agitate all we have all we know underneath our feet? Choke it down, spit it up. A spoiled piece of meat is getting harder and harder to identify. Crooked cooking no ones looking up the alibi. What a wish. Don't you wish it was as simple as an answerless question no one needs to ever ask. If all you do this time around come back to you always, but often in disguise. And all you do to those around would scar you too, are you planning to survive?
A LIFETIME OF PUPPETRY
So goes the quest from furthest east to farthest west, to life a life you could call blessed. But underneath what you'd suggest, is not as divine. High as the wind may blow, low as the deepest undertow. I tried to uncover you, now I realize you are a light that lives in shades. You shine so bright as colour fades out of this life. So just tonight please shed some light, on a lie so black that you call white. There's no time to sleep, I can't count another sheep that wastes it's potential waiting on a fucking miracle. I won't close my eyes, I won't live a life of fear for future punishment, I will cast my own judgement. Burn among the trees, i find room to breath. Drawing my conclusions free from foreign illusions. If I look back I still see a lifetime of puppetry, hollow dolls who fail to see whose hands their strings do lead. Lead us from explanation, deliver us from an equation that will cut us free.
Once I tried to integrate and modernized. Learnt my lines, knew my crimes, cut my ties. Survival was not a priority. Did not take me long to realize I can't take all of your sides. Summoned as a single wound bleeds, more sharks than I could ever feed. Just then I knew that nothing I do will ever change you. Sets of extroverted eyes cutting me back down to size. Social-life-support failing. Regenerate another shell to replicate all of this pain. I never listen to intention just the sound of the bodies falling. Last time when the shadows surrounded the light I had to shoot through my human shield. When will you see that none of this is me? Its never easy.
I don't know destination, I just wait to find you there. You just hide behind a stare. I don't know condemnation. I just love to take your blame, take pleasure in the price I pay. No I don't know where I begin and you end so follow this vein to the heart that bleeds between us all. Commit yourself, submit to intimacy. Say what you've been told and taught and forced while you complain to your true self, to the one you forget every time. If you must be vilified to be purified, you'll be justified on the inside, and finally alive. I see endless complication and limitless frustration caused by everything perceived as flawed. All I know is domination, the effortless equation used to ever feel a thing from you. No I don't feel as if we're still ascending, fall back down face first and meet the ending. I never believed that the door would close on me, as you leave would I fall back down to my knees?
PAST THE GRAVE
When you get what you gave for answers you'll regret trying to face your selfish ways. What you said to shift the blame from your head will not disguise the fault you wreak of. They follow you down, they follow you down past the grave. I just hit the ground, I just didn't fall in place. They wont make a sound because of faith, You're breaking it down with every change you don't make. By muting the blind and blinding the deaf you've forced them to trust. They march in your lines 'till I can't control or conceal my disgust. So I walk away taking no part in this parade, but its your nerve to say I'm not doing what I know to be right.
