lyrics

SUBJECT SIX

The plutocrat holds his breath in fear
Clenching fists in distress
Upon the screen, Subject Six convulsing
Transfer complete, at last: success!

A secret place, obscured from prying eyes
Unmoored from morality
In desperation, the clock ticks for his withered flesh
All hope now lies in virtuality

Postmortal path to eternity
Transcend the mortal form
Through stolen lives
The godmachine awakes
A mad dream realized
Through purloined flesh reborn

Apotheosis, a century of avarice
Rapacity unbound
Wheeled from the room, the pitiable husk
Nevermore to be found

His sycophants strap him to the table
Obscene in genuflection
No moral chains to bind him to this form
Now witness resurrection!

Postmortal path to eternity
Transcend the mortal form
Through stolen lives
The godmachine awakes
A mad dream realized
Through purloined flesh reborn

Needles pierce the skin
Transfer protocol begins
Sedation takes control
The machines extract his soul

Awareness now returns
An unfamiliar place
Yet not alone
Subject Six was not erased!

She’s stronger now
This ghost in the machine
It’s her world now
His final act, a scream

“I know what you did to me.
Now you’re here with me for eternity!
I know what you did to me.
I know what you did to me.”
