Track Name: The Safe Points of the Source (intro)
You have surpassed all safe points that were set by life itself at the source.
The substance of things must always be maintained by feeling, by logic or by force.
Track Name: Distress Signal on a Stellar Wave
There is an order, there has been conference
All the means for your rescue will be deployed
There is an order, there has been conference
Whatever’s attacking life will be destroyed

We are coming, we’re taking off

Through matter space and time, we’ll clear you from this
Through matter space and time, we’ll rid you of this
Through matter space and time, we’ll readjust this

The waves of distress slowly solidify
The patterns cluster in a burning ring
We’re immersed in the dark flood
And through it flows your pain that now affects everything

We fire up, death is denied

Forces, and they’re all set to source us
They are beyond control, ’cause they’re all set to source us

Forces: crave / Forces: stage / Forces: save / Forces: rage
Track Name: The Infinite Laws of Transformation
The methods of time in a fractal design
We are reassembled in no time, in no time

This is the medium immediate, these are the holes in time
This is the relative arithmetic where everything collides

I shift shape

Transformation: is going out of range

I always imagined it would hurt but I only feel harmony
I don’t move past all things, they move through all of me

As I fold inside out, as I bend beliefs and will
As I realign my (inherent) behaviour, as I evaporate and distill

As I stand at the receiving end.
Track Name: The Approach Towards Human Nature
Now I’m just like you, wrought by desire
Now I’m just like you, I’ve joined the liars

Now everything here turns to life. I see the warmth, I feel the light
We magnify the course, I’m coming closer to the source

I wanna bend whatever’s right
I wanna get off day and night
I wanna catch all the light
I just wanna be satisfied

I wanna shine forever bright
I wanna soil anything white
I wanna be a lonely height
I just wanna be satisfied

Now I’m just like you, as narrow-minded
Now I’m just like you, as cold and blinded

This world is of such perfect beauty, you have ocean, sky and sun
A simple and enchanted cycle of equilibrium

I wanna feed my appetite
I wanna howl in sheer delight
I wanna rival the sunlight
I just wanna be satisfied

I can’t find the problem, I don’t see the point of origin

This simplified manifestation of this here form I’m covered in
There’s no space for anything else than the desires that have been

I can not find the origin
There’s something cold and ancient in this skin
I can not find the origin
Something dark is rising from within

There is something inside…
… that reeks of genocide

I just wanna be satisfied with me
