Track Name: Flatline
up until the daylight
but never feeling quite right till we’re strobed out and traced
engulfed in blacklight
sweating creatures overcome the need
the greed
the chemical intervention
hypertension
the noise
we breathe
gasp for air
feel the dominance
the power
touch the turbulence
now numb
the ringing in the ear
the sweet caresses of the fear
bring it up and hold the light
the vision now in sight
we try to reach too high towards expulsion
this desire
now higher
on fire
close the eyes and dive right in
disciples of the sin
of flesh
and light
and noise
and life
screams with urgency
as youth drips from these tired veins
it stings
this tool
but no salvation for the fool

straight into the headlights
blinded only by the foresight knowing someday someway
we all achieve the flatline
feeling nothing truly matters now
we all resort to random acts
our superstructures are chipped away
life
limb
original sin
we make it up as we go along
shout slogans from the day before
while others fall from pure selfworth
isn’t that what we were contacted for
restless
sleepless
wandering
we’ll abuse our senses till they scream
bloodletting for redemption
self contamination
we reticule our fallen
then kicking them while they’re fast asleep
we cover eyes then we turn away
while others start the cycle
once again
we feel the morning come
wet flesh on this tired soul
no redemption for the weak at heart
no salvation for the fool

no one has the time for sleep
the body aches
the muscles weak
but headstrong
not long
minds collapse from memory leak
just shove us to the edge again
lift us up and hold our hands
and lead us to the pit
a kiss good bye as we jump right in
the flame
feed the burning love
the lust
it will hold you up
and sweat
until we’re going down into the brink of sanity
turn it on and see the light
the vision now in sight
we try to reach too high towards expulsion
this desire
now higher
on fire
close the eyes and dive right in
disciples of the sin
of flesh
and light
and noise
and life
screams with urgency
as youth drips from our tired veins
it stings
this tool
but no salvation for the fool

I come back now
Back to the ground
I can dream of you
In my telescopes
late tonight
I will almost see your smile

Radio comlink communications
I can hear you now
Of the little tones
I send back to you
Your mission

airwav-airwav
You send to me
airwav-airwav
I send to you
airwav-airwav
You send to me
airwav-airwav
My mission

Now you’re fading
Weak in signal
Something has gone wrong
I can still see you
Float in space
It is like watching you dance

airwav-airwav
You send to me
airwav-airwav
I send to you
airwav-airwav
You send to me
airwav-airwav
My mission

(Begin encoded mission statement)

Adjusting orbit and realign
Back on schedule now
Spinning in space
Continue the broadcast
Of your mission

airwav-airwav
You send to me
airwav-airwav
I send to you
airwav-airwav
You send to me

My mission

Track Name: Remote Control v2
I have three screens to choose from
All night, all stations
My video cassette recorder
Has become my dream monitor

Technology has caught up with me
I am no longer a slave to reality
No one tells me different thoughts
Lest I pull the plug

My remote control
Does my thinking for me
My remote control
Runs my life
My remote control
Is my friend

Music and images
In perfect synchronicity
At last the perfection
Of human thought control

Even this computer rhythms
Are forcing me to conform
But it is impossible
To do freeform life control

My remote control
Does my thinking for me
My remote control
Runs my life
My remote control
Is my friend

Buy, Quality, Consume, Reliability,
Warranty, Purchase, Limited, Satisfaction.

My remote control
Does my thinking for me
My remote control
Runs my life
My remote control
Is my friend
Track Name: Arecebo
With these headphones on
I’m tuning in
I’ll just wait here
For you to begin
But when I was ready
You turned shy
And you were not talking
But neither was I
So with these headphones on
I’m tuning in

Now that I’m listening
Arecebo
You’re not speaking
Arecebo
And then when you’re speaking
Arecebo
I won’t be there
Arecebo

I’m turning off
This radio is down
It’s far too late
And you’re not around
But now that I’m turning
Off this thing
You’re up there laughing
Starting to sing
But I’m turning off
This radio is down

Now that I’m listening
Arecebo
You’re not speaking
Arecebo
And then when you’re speaking
Arecebo
I won’t be there
Arecebo

Besseres leben durch binären code

There are those who would like to see our hard work divided. There are those who would like to watch as we crumble into oblivion. We will raise our voices now. We will stand strong as one and defend our innovation and technologies. We will not stand by and watch our efforts lower into silence. We will continue to expand. We will continue to extend and embrace. Our out stretching arms will still nurture and benefit those still not able and strong. We will continue our plans of innovation with good faith. We will further our preservations with good things ahead for your children. We will continue. We will be strong. With our innovation, THE BEST IS YET TO COME!
