Track Name: Visage of Unity
Into the depths the system of reality
which is infinite unspeakable
which cannot be written
which cannot be known
into the belly the workings of this machine
the cycle harmonic system
which cannot be written
which cannot be known

and I will be reborn from the chaos
the conflicting fragments of faith
break from the shadows spiral from the center
in the perfect harmony of the universe
the discrete and the purely symbolic unite

the unspeakable language of the cosmos
the construction of man in the heart of reality
Track Name: Specter of the Incomplete
I feel their every movement their gentle promise as I sleep
in the silence in the darkness breathe through the pipelines
the whispers the workings of cold
I remember your face I hear your voice
dreamless waiting listening

haunted the irrefutable rhythmic progression
to axiomate decay contradict
the failure of order
the failure of choice
I take great care to be quiet to avoid their eyes
the icy broken fingers of logic
to stay safe in the crumbling walls
the unblinking eye the specter of the incomplete
Track Name: Divergent at Infinity
searching in darkness where axioms fail divergent
alone in darkness intuition lost divergent
grasping in darkness among the incomplete divergent

without fear without doubt
I long for the embrace of infinity
through madness through these white walls
the arms of infinity beckon me
in rhyme and verse the thief and the liar betrayed us all

shakespeare is a fraud
Track Name: Proof and Consequence
through the darkness the light of ideals shine
shadows of darkness and decay
the crumbling and rebuilding of human monuments
the light of truth grows ever more distant
forced through a lens lying broken on the sand

submit to the paltry lance of conquest simple and futile
end the torture of life amongst the shadows

proof and consequence
freed from the lie to the eternal state of purity
that is order that is proof and consequence
Track Name: Poison of Mind
we are born with poison of the mind
sick with desire for some thread of harmony
for some resonant frequency in this stochastic nightmare

poison of mind

the empty fields of the probable
the inescapable shackles of chance
our fragile faith in order battered on reality
Track Name: Into the Grasp of Man
empire of man in flames sickness pervading the city
burning the dead corpses carried through the streets

the wake of misery rising from the ashes of sickness
from the waste of man dawns a new god
forever bringing the infinite reaches of the heavens
into the grasp of man
Track Name: Failing the Turing Test
a chemical system the difference between life
and the absence of life on the crutch of the spirit
a mindless machine

we are the weather systems spawned of chaos and disorder
the churning of viscous fluids
unexpected perturbations in a predictable whole

and every conscious though every feeling
a binary system a chemical trail
