    VNV Nation – Genesis

    Breathing an air
    Permeated, soaked in darkness
    Emanating from within
    Resonating like a scream no one can hear

    I wear this chaos well
    Though none should save me
    Desperation keeps me here
    My need for innocence
    The place where I began
    The abyss becomes me
    I wear this chaos well

    Are these not words of heresy?
    A venom on my lips, a poison?
    My spirit impurified
    In everything I choose to say

    With you I stand in hope
    That God will save us from ourselves
    Every cry a wasted moment
    Until another day is lost
    Even lands we once called home
    Lie undiscovered and unknown
    Only heaven’s silence for an answer
    And did our laughter, did our tears
    Have some purpose after all?
    Did we toil in vain in hope
    That wisdom came from what we’d done?
    Even lands we once called home
    Lie undiscovered and unknown
    Only heaven’s silence for an answer

    Are these not words of heresy?
    A venom on my lips, a poison?
    My spirit impurified
    In everything I choose to say

    If I would shed my skin, the layers left
    But not the lessons learned
    It would not undo what I have done
    Or grant forgiveness in some better days

    With you I stand in hope
    That God will save us from ourselves
    Every cry a wasted moment
    Until another day is lost
    Even lands we once called home
    Lie undiscovered and unknown
    Only heaven’s silence for an answer
    And did our laughter, did our tears
    Have some purpose after all?
    Did we toil in vain in hope
    That wisdom came from what we’d done?
    Even lands we once called home
    Lie undiscovered and unknown
    Only heaven’s silence for an answer

    Envy is Blind – Sea of Flames

    With you I’d fly to the surface
    Where the oceans rise and fall
    And everything lives a short while
    There’s a pattern to the way we die

    And as the flash leads the thunder
    We see the brilliance on the waves
    Reflecting to remind us
    That we stand in a sea of flames

    And I have never known such beauty
    As the wonders of the mind
    And at the edge of the moment
    Creation gives design
    [To everything]

    Here we stand together
    Seizing the sirens’ waves
    And if you listen closely
    You’ll hear that they sing our names
    [In a sea of flames]

    And the air we breathe is water
    And the fire burns our hearts
    But this tension of division
    Breaks the edge and the real divide

    So then nothing lies between us
    And everything falls beyond
    Strength exists immortal
    But is not only for those who are

    Front Line Assembly – Transmitter (Come Together)

    A jaded generation
    Dissolves the unknown
    Neurotic deprivation
    No one left to own
    Sinking endlessly
    Into infancy

    Let’s come together

    Narcotic imbalance
    The energy is strong
    Resilient and defiant
    This claustrophobic song
    So cold is the water
    Crouched into a ball
    Like fragments of illusion
    We all start to fall

    Let’s all come together
    Let’s all join hands
    Let’s all march together
    Let’s do the war dance

    The universe
    The stars
    The planets

    Civilization

    Edge of Dawn – Pray For Love

    Early on in my life I was confused
    Took the path of someone else
    Today I might be you

    I can’t get out
    Second to none
    I can’t get out
    Invisible sun
    I’m sick, you’re not
    I might be you
    Invisible sun

    Early on in my life I made a choice
    Someday I’d use a gun to stop the noise
    (Stop the noise!)

    Pray for love
    We dance
    To an inaudible drum
    Stay for love
    In the light
    Of an invisible sun
    (x2)

    (Stop the noise! x4)

    Early on in my life I made a choice
    I couldn’t go on with all the noise
    All the noise
    (I might be you!)

    Pray for love
    We dance
    To an inaudible drum
    Stay for love
    In the light
    (Stop the noise!)
    Of an invisible sun
    (Stop the noise!)

    Hey
    Invite
    Follow
    Pray
    Follow
    Invisible sun

    Pray for love
    We dance
    To an inaudible drum
    Stay for love
    In the light
    Of an invisible sun
    (x2)

    Depeche Mode – Macro

    Overflowing senses
    Heightened awareness
    I hear my blood flow
    I feel its caress
    Whispering cosmos
    Talking right to me
    Unlimited, endless
    God breathing through me

    See the microcosm
    In macro vision
    Our bodies moving
    With pure precision
    One universal celebration
    One evolution
    One creation

    Thundering rhythm
    Pounding within me
    Driving me onwards
    Forcing me to see
    Clear and enlightening
    Right there before me
    Brilliantly shining
    Intricate beauty

    See the microcosm
    In macro vision
    Our bodies moving
    With pure precision
    One universal celebration
    One evolution
    One creation

    Juno Reactor (w/Don Davis) – Navras

    Asato ma sad gamaya
    tamaso ma jyotir gamaya
    mrtyor mamrtam gamaya

    Om shanti shanti shanti

    Jnani manasa saha
    Buddhis ca na vicestate
    Tam ahuh paramam gatim

    Translation:

    From delusion lead me to truth
    From darkness lead me to light
    From death lead me to immortality.

    Let there be peace everywhere

    When the five senses and the mind are still, and reason itself rests in silence, then begins the Path supreme

    Assemblage 23 – Binary

    Monochromatic reasoning
    A divide and conquer legacy
    Dissect and over-simplify
    All hail the death of compromise

    CHORUS
    The world isn’t rendered in black and white
    Other shades lie between
    Don’t view the world with binary eyes
    We are human, not machine

    Eliminate the critical
    When it all becomes too difficult
    Ignore the layers of subtlety
    Force feed them full of your beliefs

    (CHORUS)

    Some day when we all awake
    From the dreams we dreamt for country’s sake
    The logic you let come undone
    Is the noose that you’ll be hanging from

    (CHORUS)

    In Strict Confidence – Eye of Heaven

    Brokenhearted
    The moon leaves earth
    Looking for a new world
    To protect & serve

    To avoid the danger
    Of increasing heaven´s space
    My eyes covered with blindness
    Diving into endless grace

    As long black rainbows fight the light
    Conquer and turn dawn into night
    Holding on – going down
    The sun takes off her crown
    As long as stars brighten the sky
    As long as time is passing by
    Protect the eye of heaven

    Celestial bodies
    Nestling close to me
    In search for shelter
    And security

    Dust of clouds
    Cover desert sky
    To save us from a demon´s seed
    The seas run dry

    As long black rainbows fight the light
    Conquer and turn dawn into night
    Holding on – going down
    The sun takes off her crown
    As long as stars brighten the sky
    As long as time is passing by
    Protect the eye of heaven
