Track Name: Wetwired
Please tell me now a valid reason
Not to leave it all behind
Your lies ablazed
The pools of pain
Drilled a hole in the soul
I had

I thought that
I could have been strong
There’s no more reason
To fight the pain
That’s the sign I’ve searched for
I need no more

The surgeon cuts his damned way
(To) the place where I hold the pain
(To) put inside this tired mind
A new reason to be

The things now fit to place
Blood and wires
Is all I see

New things improving me
Choices, voices
Then you

Tell me I’m on the wrong side
Change me so I’ll fit it all
Rejecting all of the things I had
The scalpel cutting deep.

Now I tell you the only reason
For I am still here
A selfish death to kill the pain
Kills your body and your soul

The scalpel has cut the place
New reality now to face
Running through streams of spikes
Running away

The things now fit to place
Blood and wires
Is all I see

New things improving me
Choices, voices
Then you

Tell me I’m on the wrong side
Change me so I’ll fit it all
Rejecting all of the things I had
The scalpel cutting deep.

My Choice

CHOICE
WETWIRED
EMBRACE
THE PAIN

Now I got this new sight
I’m the truth between the lies
There’s a place, now is far
Track Name: The Net
Stand, in front of these
Useless emotions have gone away
Creed, this is my reign
For shall I deny the flesh and the blood
Free, from space and time
A nameless design of reality
Cold, once felt before
Relieving that moment… touching the void

Life after life
Adductor of sin,
But all is a lie
Addressing to someone, to something
The wrong part of me

I have seen all before
The good and the wrong, interior desire
Come, this is my reign
Virtual insanity...
...this is the Net!

Try to erase all again
The love and the hate that I’ve had
Try to forget all the pain
Crashing the borders of life.

Stand, in front of these
Illogical nightmares now gone ashtray
Proud, feeding my brain
With knowledge and hunger consuming the man
Dead, only the flesh
Mnemonical order surviving inside
Cold, once felt before
A word in December...
...but now feed the Net

Try to erase all again
The love and the hate that I’ve had
Try to forget all the pain
Crashing the borders of life
Track Name: Visions Of Numeric Life
Of myself I’ve no control
Glowing structures rise like walls
Prompting words I can’t decipher

Falling now into the void
I touch matrixes like toys
In a strange deafening silence

Fearing no more my time
That shapeless passes by
Leaving behind my mask

I can see the destiny
Of human data files
My new form is shifting wild
I feel like I’m
Rolling Bouncing Bumping
Crushing Glasses Falling
In a pinball of my own

Data paths are now so crude
Showing lives from where protrude
Tracing patterns of how users live

Neural networks fill the place
Leaving me a little space
Moving on is now so heavy

Fearing no more my time
That shapeless passes by
Leaving behind my mask

I can see the destiny
Of human data files
My new form is shifting wild
I feel like I’m
Rolling Bouncing Bumping
Crushing Glasses Falling
In a pinball of my own
Track Name: The Hollow Men
Eyes I dare
not meet in dreams,
cowering
behind them.

Keep on falling,
lying with you,
in the wind
of twilight time.

Dying light
remember…

Let me live

Hollow men
you can’t help me,
only choice you have
watch me burn inside.

Stuffed men
keep denying me,
in your world you’re dead…
…falls the Shadow.

Keep my hands
this time,
fall with me
now to eternity.
I’ll go on
I’ll bring to you
like death
dark dreams of
our life again

Stand with me
with pride,
hiding won’t
this time
save me.

Fade no more
your light,
bound to live
my true I.

Live your thoughts
just try,
find inside my mind…
…find me.

Keep untold
my night,

for this time
I can’t die.

The Hollow men

Keep my hands
just try,
fall with me
now to eternity.

Like a ghost I…

Keep untold
my night,
for this time
be with me.

Eyes I dare
not meet in dreams,
but this time
I will know who I am.

Keep on falling,
lying with you,
in the wind
of twilight time.

Dying light
remember…

Let me be
Track Name: Watchdog & Virus
Trying to know
What’s your tag
From your code.
Freeze the drain
I’m your pain
...your control

There’s a way
I will pierce
Into your core
Hold your files beyond the wall
You won’t stop me

Obsession
Revise your mind
Solving your code
Waiting for your fault
Forsake me
I’ll break inside
To erase
Your word

Trying to know
What’s the tag
In your code
Don’t touch me
Eating your brain
That’s my law

(I’ve) found a way
To crack your soul
Causing you blindness
Hold your world beyond the wall
You won’t stop me

Brainless program
You’ll fear me
’cause my identity is pain

System drain
Error line
Your bytes mean regression
I am blind
Found a virus now
Crushing walls…

System down...
...no protection

The walls won’t stop my infection!
Track Name: Chrome
I was filling an empty life with empty lies
Closed inside my fortified self
I sarched on the floor a reason for my own fall
And getting up was just beyond my strenght

There is a day that I recall
Eyes with no life inside
My mirror watching me
Tryed to recover means to life
Fear was then like a nameless friend

Don't rely on eternal world or kingdom
'Cause when you die you will have no time
You will be no more
So believe in the words you feel
from this hellish thing
I'm giving you the form that you need
…that you need!

Weirdest thoughts I never knew
Kind of new dimesion
Feeling now, giving strenght to the
entity I am

Forever forever you'll be
However you may lose your grasp
Forever forever you'll stay
And never forget your last day

Loosened from the bonds you had in that world
Free from my mortal thoughts
You are no more… but still you stay
Clusters of files now form my brain
No chance to recover
No way to get over
Remember of the life you didn't love
But I want it back…
…somehow

Forever forever I'll be
However I'm loosing my grasp
Forever forever I'll stay
And never forget my last day
Track Name: A New Gestalt
One crash inside my blaze,
a feel that I can’t ignore
like trapped into this core.
The new strange sound of my voice
these hands, these eyes, are they mine?
Upgrading inside the life…

Ethereal sea,
bring me to my desires.
Electron winds,
give strength to my cold fire
fly high

All my life, was out of shape
finding patterns to compare,
(now) they will die
while I can shine

All the noise resounding here
It’s like unwritten harmony.
What you gave me
it’s more than life…
…a chance.

Won’t choose the sidewalk of time
Recalling what’s real,
Extending wings in all my deeds

Ethereal sea,
bring me to my desires.
Electron winds,
give strength to my cold fire…
…fly high.

All my life, was out of shape
finding patterns to compare,
(now) they will die
while I am here.

All the noise resounding here
It’s like unwritten harmony.
I’ll fly alone, outstanding
inside my world.

Thousand voices inside,
calling my name.
Catch me, shape me…
…what will be now?

What you gave me
it’s more than life...
...a chance

What they told me was to obey
to a pattern in the flesh,
just reflections in the noise
that actions can create.
Now the voice inside of me
it’s like a form without a name
so It’s the time to shape it!

...a new gestalt
Track Name: Watch Me Now
New
The substance and the shape
The only remains of me
Is what I recall
New thoughts new dreams
New life forever

Just
Few traces left to show
What I used to be for the world
Don’t think I’m still there
Take a look at me… you’ll learn…

But some times
(I) recall what’s left behind
It happens just few times
To see the loss is vast
But when
There is one single choice
You can’t make mistakes
My decision then was right

I’m the nail in the cross
My fear will have no voice
I’m the shape of your pain
So watch me now!

Changed
To just remain my self
Blurred images of me
Hold by a mirror
With the surfaces
stained by my past

Streams of data
Kind of sperm
Scattering out of me
Fecund what they meet
Give a birth to a new life

But some times
(I) recall what’s left behind

It happens just few times
To see the loss is vast
But when
There is one single choice
You can’t make mistakes
My decision then was right

Missing link in the chain
Numeric thinking mass
The new shape of your pain

So watch me now!

When all the words are said
When all the dreams are dead
When the present is pain
There is only one left thing…
…the truth…
…use the truth
use the truth
USE THE TRUTH !

But some times
(I) recall what’s left behind
It happens just few times
To see the loss is vast
But when
There is one single choice
You can’t make mistakes
My decision then was right

I’m the nail in the cross
My fear will have no voice
I’m the shape of your pain
Watch me now…
Missing link in the chain
Numeric thinking mass
The new shape of your pain
So watch me…
…now!
Track Name: Eternal Unlife
When I started
I was just going away…
...fallen angel in the net
My thoughts are now
freely roaming around
I possess a different mind

Free to feel electric dreams
wasted body no more mine
Now I know the meaning of my being
be the one who made the choice

From the world departed
a few steps away…
…I'm not living day by day
My organic form
is now superseded
I'm a brand new form of life

Lonely
I've no more gone astray
Sadness
Is now for me an empty word
I am breaking
All the oppressing chains
Free to be
What I wished to

I'm living alone…

Somewhere there's a place
with the colors of your soul…
…someone may have found
and left a sign

Who is torn inside
has the will to climb
over… the walls of time

Now come what may
I see the light… again

Surrender to new life
where of life there's no more trace
numbers… breeding a new race

Shadows deep inside me
were tiring my will to be
I felt like a nameless sign

Now come what may
I see the light… again!

No more crying…
…no more crying…
…no more crying…
…crying…
…crying…
…crying!

Lonely
I've no more gone astray
Sadness
Is now for me an empty word
I am breaking
All the oppressing chains
Free to be
What I wished to
I am lonely
I've no more gone astray
Sadness
Is now for me an empty word
I am breaking
All the oppressing chains
Free to be
What I wished to
