I’ve lived the life of the mind Machine-like grind Algorithmic Forceful logic None of this can make me whole All the silent nights alone And on my gravestone They’ll inscribe these words, I know “He liked to read the future from his broken bones” I live the life of the times A life of grime Exogenic Broken mind-tricks How do you overcome the suffering of life?
Buzzsaw automation We love damnation Black holes where we had souls Dead alone Can’t know what you don’t know We can’t be just one We’re on the other side, I know We can’t be just one We’re on the other side of doom Base-law desecration Weak stance foundation Black holes where we had souls Dead alone Can’t know what you don’t know Lift up the sign on the banner You never knew why it mattered Can’t carry on with the passion You have to follow with action
You can not have one hundred percent security And one hundred percent privacy With zero inconvenience Sky above, earth below, peace within Not as easy as they say Sacrifice prison bones See-through skin This is just the price pay In times when severed heads prevail Times when secrets can’t remain Hard to speak, hard to be When they look at me Deeper minds, memory graves, buried sin Nothing ever leaves from here Endless faith, endless time Endless pain Push towards the next frontier
I don’t know how to say it You don’t know how to face it Harder once you fall Hard to know what’s going on Writhe until the dawn This knife does not belong to me But I will borrow again This life does not belong to me But I will end it today I don’t know how to hate it You don’t know how to take it Rolling once it rolls Hard to stop what’s going on Writhe until the dawn
I’m not inside my mind I’m not inside myself I’m not inside this world And I’m not somewhere else I’m with the acid witch
These are times where severed heads prevail Some days all logic seems to fail Looking back, can’t see the past Common sense fading too fast The enemies of reason blast Slowly we inch Drowned by water thought These are times to speak the truth you see When distorted speech destroys the free Cretin armies don’t know the past Decent thought fading too fast The enemies of reason blast The battle of ideas goes on, it’s relentless It happens in the trenches And no way to win the battle of ideas If everyone decides to leave it to someone else To fight it
Murder 04:33
Your scars are maps of who you are Like tattoos you did not choose I leave the body I know I drive further Murder everything I am I am In my heart I know I could go far If my shadow would stay behind me I leave the body I know
Asteria 03:54
Souls like snow and ice One more sign of the times What is left to say? Chills in my spine From the frozen smiles I’ll be on my way I’ll be on my way I can see my death from here I earned my regrets and dream away There is just one thing I fear Living on and always being scared I’ll be on my way I’ll concede defeat sometimes Hide inside my cave until I rise again Mirror shows what I despise Looking to the stars reveals a better man I’ll be on my way
I saw the war I saw the night fall I saw the road I saw the light go low I’ve been every way That I was led Mistakes I don’t regret On my own Nothing unsaid The pain I don’t regret I saw the holes And I saw time stall I saw it all And had this mind blown
Neophobiac 03:45
Nightburner Never seen Atmospheric energy Mindkiller unbelieved This is the hardcore soul Neophobiac This is the heart untold Neophobiac Godbringer Mythic storm Last man Legend born Rise higher Never stay All seeing Terror drone No mercy Crushing bones Artificial future sold
Halo 05:02
Every girl Carries a circle of hell around her head Like a halo What’s this sound All alone It’s just you Your thoughts growl What’s this hound Chasing down It’s just you You run now Where’s the fiend That’s in me It’s just this My thoughts scream Where’s the dream That I seek Late at night My thoughts freeze
The Bottom 03:46
Look around in the night And see neon eyes Illuminating the skin Stare with creepy smiles All this weight in hand, shadow left behind Silent killer, a friend that is giving life From the bottom of the souls of the others I light mine With the fire of the hearts that I had for a while From the bottom of the souls of the others I light mine It’s the only thing that I have that shines “This is a sign of the times!” Printed on the signs The stranger makes us afraid We just smile and lie Everything that was you needs to crash and die Bring the shadow back Bring it back inside
Dark smile Dark mind Dark soul Dancing in the corner All alone There’s a darkness of soul But she smiles all the time She moves better than most She will never be mine There’s a darkness of soul It’s just the way that she likes As the night unfolds She keeps dancing alone


“If you feel that nothing you are is good enough for yourself, then you only have two choices: you can either give up completely or you can separate yourself step by step from who you are. And then try to become someone who you like more. The songs on ‘Asteria’ are snapshots of this process.” - Faderhead
