The labyrinth... A maze designed by the legendary artificer Daedalus A complex were lies fundamental truth but also deceit They say that the one who would escape it would ascend to another level of consciousness A state of purity However, no one ever did...

And the biological evolution's summit is only the birth of a mechanical era we have tried to reach the sun as Icarus instead we wound up burning our own wings technocracy termination of collective rights for the greater good of the cyberhive they managed to enslave us all the tool overpowered it's maker... us and they Divide and conquer Bar-coded masses Bow the systematical alienation of consciousness through thorough culture-fed widespread obscuration we should have learned from our ancestors' mistakes instead of burning our own wings We have tried to reach the sun as Icarus. Blinded by this unquenchable thirst for knowledge. But we are the architects of our own demise. We should have learned from our ancestors’ mistakes. Technocracy will rise from humankind's ashes And the biological evolution's summit is only the birth of a mechanical era we have tried to reach the stars as Icarus for a new sovereign : technocracy

Humiliated for generations and confined as herd they were using us until we can't give anymore Dreams : our only freedom left They crossed the line, this time it's too far we take back our land, language and flag Once you reach this depth, there's nothing left to lose Awaken from this illusion Tonight we're breaking the chains We raise our fists to attune our voices Nothing shall stand against us Awaken from this illusion Tonight we're breathing the free air We raise our fists to attune our voices Death shall embrace our detractors A perpetual upbringing in fear shackled our will they were draining us until we can't give anymore Dreams : our only freedom left Your disguised monarchy is over we no longer recognize your crown our blood will free our kind as we do not fear death Marching united we are stronger marching united we stand against you I raise my fist to attune our voices and we shall speak as one nothing shall even try to stand against us anymore Marching united we are stronger marching united we stand against you

It's like I am an outsider everything seems so tasteless I only see through shades of grey I would die to live only once Even if I was among the one percent there is this blank never completely filled like a shattered soul, broken beyond repair my inner voice, devil-kin, whispered me the way It began with a betrayal Expected treason by close friends compelling me to the darkest path and falling in the arms of torments even with all this blood on my hands I still feel empty deep inside of me I only see through shades of grey I would die to live only once As I am spiraling downward into the labyrinth All hopes are drifting away from my grasp I still feel empty deep inside of me I would die to live only once. Even if I was among the one percent there is this blank never completely filled like a shattered soul, broken beyond repair my inner voice, devil-kin, whispered me the way of the darkest path

Chrysalis 04:27
Entwined, lay down your soul Obsessed, I'm yours to extol Kneel down, you're losing control Progress, the Chrysalis' Toll We are synthetic souls Slipping further away from us Human condition is lost in it's lust Vowing under the moon astray Began rendition of lusus naturae Rising above traces of red The damned's attrition no more will be fed Our fangs, our claws, our wings widespread Behold a nation, millions of undead Battling under the sign of sixes Daemons completion throughout impiety Our lives taken, a hearbeat races This desperation no more we will see

disconnected from what we used to be reaching once and for all the point of no return overthinking we redefined our kind a failed attempt to rewrite nature's law we sacrified our spirituality on the altar of superficiality lost far from our elder's way so far away disciples of transhumanism a shattered icon of our legacy lost far from our elder's way so far away we soiled our land on planetary scale reaching once and for all the point of no return a foolish matricide of mother earth an attempt to rise as a new maker Des millénaires nous avons vécu selons nos traditions dans le respect de nos ancêtres jusqu'à ce que les cultures de masse n'atrophient notre intellect pour sombrer dans un monde envahi du vide. Malgré l'urgence d'agir maintenant, avant qu'il ne soit trop tard. Dociles, les brebis bien domptées se sont mutilé la raison, abandonnant leur liberté
7.
Raised to believe into a perfect future naive promises of a lifetime but we can't plan our whole existence a utopia that broke in a single breath the taste of bitter ashes opened our eyes A frozen april mist bringing alive your memory a dreamlike reality bringing you back from the dead there is so much left behind that looking forward seems out of reach blinded by countless scars I know there is a way outside this hell A vivid july wind the sign of a new curse an ethereal chaos bringing forth unnameable torments there is so much left behind that looking forward seems out of reach blinded by countless scars I know there is a way outside this hell I shall live as long as you will remember me The echoes of my voice Raised to believe into a perfect future but we still hear the echoes of your voice ... of your voice
8.
Its the past that builds theses walls We let imprison us through time As we accept the cold comfort grows The pain hides the key in our mind Walking through these endless paths A snake eating itself alive Thrown a rope we ignore the thread Will the blood on our hands ever dry? Safe in the dark Afraid of the unknown Losing it all To a place without walls Confined mind The fear of the other side The architect of my own demise Over and over I see the eyes of the lost without a path disconnected from the web Their broken threads went astray Walking away from the hell I create towards the key hidden in plain sight I can no longer live this way My essence is not bound to the labyrinth
