lyrics

SYNETHIC

The byproduct of synthetic system
That pits us against each other
The tumult in every second
Courses through the tangled network of mind

In a race to the bottom
Who can best fake while chipping away
At the decaying vessel
That was once a heart
As you obsessively derive pleasure
Trapped inside the base of your spine

I've done my part
I've made it an art

Handed to me
My predigested microscopic reality
One among infinity
Fighting for my existence to be

Show me your precious lies
Your luminous, festering dreams
The transparent child haunting
To see your fantasy for the seams

Throw your heart
Into the flames
Of insatiable desire

What is contained
Of what remains
Is the DNA of deception
It's in our blood
And I've done my part
Singularity will fulfill me
Upload our struggle
Install my will
As we die for progress

[Micah Maniac]:
In the world, seen by a glance
Not reality, all but a trance
Engineered, yet crippled, fighting for space
Digging trenches and embedding the truth
Show me your precious lies
Your luminous, festering dreams
The transparent child haunting
To see your fantasy for the seams

I am the futility of your sweat
I am the cold stare of a million dead stars
I am faithless, hopeless, truthless
The fire's gone out
And the well has gone dry
Just a pair of hands and eyes
Frozen in ice
