DIGIMECHANOID - IN THE MACHINE (2022)




SCREEN

I have seen forgotten things up on the screen in front of me
Things that bleed, the constant screams, when everything becomes machine
I have seen forgotten things up on the screen in front of me
Things that bleed, the constant screams, when everything becomes machine

Cut the cords
Break away
Smash the screen
End the pain

I have seen forgotten things up on the screen in front of me
Things that bleed, the constant screams, when everything becomes machine
I have seen forgotten things up on the screen in front of me
Things that bleed, the constant screams, when everything becomes machine

Cut the cords
Break away
Smash the screen
End the pain

I know that you see it, burned into the TV
Tell your eyes you need it, connect to the banshee
Powered by the spineless, streaming thoughts to mindless
Open window eyelids, fetishize the violence

Fuck this shit, I'm fucking tired of it
You shove it in my face and still expect me to quit
Tear it up, burn it down to the ground
Society's running around like fucking clowns
Fight the war, go ahead make my day
I didn't even ask to fucking be here anyway
Pull the plug, Leave the dream and cause a scene
Rip the wires from your head and stop the stream

Fuck this shit, I'm fucking tired of it
You shove it in my face and still expect me to quit
Tear it up, burn it down to the ground
Society's running around like fucking clowns
Take a look, see the mess that we've made
Energy particles blasted straight into your brain
Life is short, visualize and make it count
Don't fuck it up for anyone including yourself

I have seen forgotten things up on the screen in front of me
Things that bleed, the constant screams, when everything becomes machine
I have seen forgotten things up on the screen in front of me
Things that bleed, the constant screams, when everything becomes machine

Cut the cords
Break away
Smash the screen
End the pain




LOCUSTS

I can't focus
Out of focus
Brain fog swarm
Sea of locusts




NEST

Silence
Crowded thoughts
Close the door
And turn out the lights
Silence
Crowded mind
Shut the blinds
And close your eyes

Another day I've got to eat
Or should I just accept defeat
Bodies lying on the street
I have to wipe my fucking feet
Another day I've got to eat
Or should I just accept defeat
Bodies lying on the street
I have to wipe my fucking feet




CEASE & DESIST

Cease and desist
Reason for this

Cease and desist
Treason resists
Cease and desist
Reason for this

Your perspective led astray
Smothered in your disarray
I close the door and hide away
Walls of glass I'm on display

I try to fight my own demise
Trap myself in selfish lies
Full disorder on the rise
Eat your consolation prize

Cease and desist
Treason resists
Cease and desist
Reason for this

Cease and desist
Treason resists
Cease and desist
Reason for this

All the progress crumbled down
Hold me back before I drown
Spin around and kill the clown
Spiral like this mega town

I try and find my own disguise
Grab my face and take a slice
Never take my own advice
Now I'm trapped in this device

Cease and desist
Treason resists
Cease and desist
Reason for this

Cease and desist
Treason resists
Cease and desist
Reason for this




IN THE MACHINE

I melt my skin and then pull back the wires
Discard the flesh and burn it in the fire
Switch out the nodes and leave them to expire
Attune my form is my only desire

Grinding my face against the steel to suffer
Trapped by these walls I'm breaking through the other
Clenching my eyelids seeing through the cover
I'm loading in I feel my senses buffer

Slip past the scripts and write your own demise
Like creatures sneaking through the moonlit nights
Dizziness and headaches from flashing lights
Can't shield the rays blinding bionic eyes

Hide your data from someone else's beacon
Blocked from your mind just for a taste of freedom
Rip out the cables from your neck to suffer
In the machine I'm searching for a reason
