1.
LYRICS: Sekt, Act 1 Imagine we are floating in the outer fields of space We are guardians of life in any form, of every race We are being summoned by a signal of distress A symphony of pain from a world under duress We travel and transform to reach your dying realm And by the insanity of man we shall be overwhelmed.
2.
LYRICS: 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 credits
3.
LYRICS: 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.
4.
LYRICS: 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
5.
LYRICS: Sekt, Act 2 At this point we understand that man is a disease that ravages this world with a relentless expertise It's impossible to fathom why you would consume this Earth We will try to persuade you to reassess its worth If neither feeling nor logic can make you change your mind we will deploy infinite force to remove humankind
6.
LYRICS: You were not supposed to Feed like this Breed like this Lead like this I’m irredeemable I’m inescapable I realise I am the banshee I am the poltergeist I am the shadow I am the sacrifice Innocence & confidence I’ll eat anything at all expense I have a one-track mind I’m inescapable I am irreparable I’m irredeemable I realise I’m the monster in this paradise, I just want this to be over I understand I’m the I’m the wocky in this wonderland, I just want this to be over now You were not supposed to Feed like this Breed like this Lead like this I realise I am the titan I am the root of vice I am the dragon I am the ill device Turbulence and dissidence I’ll crush everything at all expense I’m irredeemable I’m inescapable I came to fear, I’m the toxin in this atmosphere, I just want this to be over I am the spectre I am the fatal splice I am the hunger It will never suffice
7.
LYRICS: Let us pretend we are right And our feelings are endless tonight Oh human please, Allow me to appeal to your emotions Oh human see, The hurts that you diffuse Oh human hear, The shrieking howls of your commotion Oh human feel, The weights of your abuse Can you feel more than you feel now, Can you feel me bleed Can you feel more than you feel now, Can you feel the need Oh human please, Allow me to address the gift of compassion Oh human smell, The putrid stench of man Oh human taste, The bitter tang of human fashion Oh human feel, The onslaught by your hand Can you feel more than you feel now, Can you feel me bleed Can you feel more than you feel now, Can you feel the need Let us pretend we are right And our feelings are endless tonight (All) souls are connected, you feel before all else You feel before all else, and still you go with your mind You feel before all else, that’s the real human kind Allow your feelings to blossom Let the design run its course Let your tears guide your hand Before logic and force Let us pretend we are right And our feelings are endless tonight
8.
LYRICS: From premonition to solid proof From simple premise to bitter truth If - You - Can’t - Feel Logic will lead you to sense, out of the shade Logic will sling you beyond, well past the… gate The wheels are in motion, the future extends To feature the elsewhere of a current event (yeah) Stepping in Skip a step Kill you off In your (own) trap If you persist Everyone dies ...everyone dies Humans are on a death course, extinction awaits This planetoid can be saved, extermi...nate The balance is tilted, space turns absolute Infinite repercussions to ruin the root (yeah) Stepping in Skip a step Kill you off In your (own) trap This is the feeling your logic defies, if you persist everyone dies
9.
LYRICS: Now I’ve lost my voice, I’m left with No choice Now I’ve lost my voice No choice The only chance to get life aligned, is to erase humankind Erase it You do not seem to have the springs And you can not make any sense You leave me only one recourse violence We will not waste one more day on this human lie We will not waste one more day on your human lie We will not waste one more day on this human lie Erase it We will not waste one more day on this human lie We will not waste one more day on your human lie Erase it You do not seem to have the springs And you can not make any sense You leave me only one recourse violence No springs No sense One recourse Violence Erase it...
10.
LYRICS: Sekt, Act 3 In this elimination the rotten parts go first To give you some kind of justice we’ll make sure that it hurts We strip away all shelter right to your very skin Let’s see how you handle yourself as the beasts are closing in You live under the illusion that there is no consequence But all your willful ignorance just adds to the expense
11.
LYRICS: The worst of you, the filthy few The rotten corps must suffer The power whores and the psychopaths The shadow kings and their filthy nests The leadership and the holy men The entire vile brethren We work our way top-down The worst go first, and we’ll make sure (that) it hurts We work our way top-down This sect of greed, we’ll make sure they all bleed Wanna kill a snake? Need it to stay dead? Want the coils to break? Cut off the head! A pristine selection to sever the infection The scope is set The worst of you, the filthy few The rotten corps must suffer The psychopaths and the power whores Conglomerates and contributors The traffickers, the malevolent The fear mongers, the 1% We work our way top-down The hearts of steel, we’ll make sure they all squeal We work our way top-down The kings of scheme, we’ll make sure they all scream Wanna kill a snake? Need it to stay dead? Want the coils to break? Cut off the head! You will not walk away from this triumphant and beckoning You had hoped to elude this end but we are the reckoning The worst of you, the filthy few The rotten corps must suffer
12.
LYRICS: We’ll take your shelter Every human streak We’ll take your shelter You will be small and weak We’ll take your shelter You caused a system-wide failure The human aspect will pad its own significance It will rape and maim and kill everything of innocence The unarmed human has such limited dimensions Your puny project badly failed, despite all good intentions The human influence can make the air go stale, can make the oceans boil, can make a planet fail You caused a system-wide failure Disassemble: Until you’re exposed Disassemble: Until it is disclosed that you are nothing You are nothing A disintegration to fit the lay of the land An original world with no factor of man A disintegration of all your contraptions All of these structures that inflate your importance We’ll take your shelter Every human streak We’ll take your shelter You will be small and weak We’ll take your shelter Disassemble: Until you’re exposed Disassemble. We strip you naked to your flesh and to your bone You will face this nature, unshielded and alone You will see the weak beast and the monster that you are You will know your place again right before the end
13.
LYRICS: This is the evil line you should not have crossed There can be no pretext, even if needs must We are staring at your sustenance in sheer disgust Accept the recoil of your bloodlust Here’s a sullen, bitter covenant that you can trust Reap the dark spoils of your bloodlust Blood for food is the most wicked kind of servitude Skin for dress, a disturbing kind of savageness The laws of karma will also apply to all of you with this determined blind eye Now this genocide has been testified It’s extraneous, it's undignified Every wide-eyed beast is deathly terrified This is the evil line that you should not have crossed There can be no pretext, even if needs must The bloodlust Here is the exact point where the tables turn. You will feel the terror, you will feel the burn. Your frequency has changed, we’ve turned you into prey Every beast is charged to hunt for your bouquet You’ve been debased to naught, beneath the ol’ food chain Can you feel the fear, feel the fear take rein Feel the fear as hungry beasts are closing in Feel the fear of being hunted for your skin Feel the fear of getting raided by your kin Your frequency has changed This is no moral ground but a cabalistic stance You will get the same odds: not a single chance
14.
LYRICS: This is the rate of change, the rate of change We have reached the end You will not have to suffer long We switch you off, another breath and you’ll be gone As we take life away from you, does it not prove most valuable in any view We will not overextend but some discomfort is to be expected in the end Why are you begging for mercy? The time has passed for you to end the strife Did you not have agency over your actions? Did you not actually wield the knife? No, your monsters will not come to life This is the rate of change, the rate of change Don’t lie, everything has always been clear Don’t squirm, simply accept the consequences Don’t shift, the path you took is what led you here No doubt, we are collecting the expenses We have reached the end, we’ve become untethered Now, eradication brings us all together We have reached the end, we have all been severed We will feel united in this last endeavour We have reached the end We will not overextend
15.
LYRICS: Perfect Perfect balance has been attained Perfect Balance Perfect Everything is everything, it’s overpowering Perfect The present moment covers the soul Now truly nothing is under control This is all natural It’s brutal but fair No longer corrupted by benevolent care Everything timeless & aware Unconditional love is free to burn All is immortal & nowhere Inconsequential time is free to turn Now truly nothing is under control This is all natural It’s ruthless but fair Freed from the fiction of compassionate care Everything timeless & aware All is immortal & nowhere Nowhere All falls into place effortlessly, now that you're no more than a distant memory Every word, ever spoken had lost all meaning before it could be broken I sense the night was darker than black But I see the light is flooding back Perfect yes, less than nothing is under control This is all natural Ferocious but fair Unviolated by a merciful care
16.
LYRICS: The balance is restored, the virus is erased This planet is at peace and no longer defaced

about

SEKT is a concept album by Cyclus - a story, very loosely based on the movie 'The day the earth stood still' (yes, the 1951 version)

Some artwistic sheit about this album:

* These 3 acts work as one single story line: "A metal-musical about an alien race on a mission to cure planet Earth from the human disease."

* The style evolution - from crude (and unpolished) to crystal (and polished as far as our budget allowed us) over the course of the three acts - is very intentional, as well as pragmatic. Act 1 is built on black & white, linear, two dimensional expression, Act 2 moves into primary colour schemes and spatial awareness, Act 3 is the fruition of the natural realm. Inside out evolution.
