Thoughts are slowly moving on Unseen where they‘re coming from In disguise feelings‘ tension moves - Strings to be pulled by intuition Changing words takes precious time Until great sense and suspense fi nd in line To be perfect Be the architect To protect your realm of dreams I am condemned to see things in youth Kindness as matter, conceiving the truth Like a spider in its web I‘m waiting for a muse A kiss to be abused So call me, reason, tell me your name! Set me out of my mind! Foresee the treason combining each frame Shaping the perfect design Find me all season cold in my grave I am the father of time Feed the horror that keep my veins alive, To unwind the perfect line And once you feed the fire My will is set ablaze Strings of thoughts move towards my consciousness Prosaic cynic‘s disease makes me crawl on my knees Pulls me under in quick sand, makes me understand Carbon phrases take all their ways to find you A phrase of love I‘m afraid can‘t be shaped without heart Carbon lines fill space to create the perfect stream The Poet‘s dreams are fl owing in it, incomplete So call me, reason, tell me your name! For I‘m the father of time Find me all season cold in my grave Setting my mind to unwind the perfect line My creation Through you my youth unholds its fire Ideas reveal in semantic spirals, concealed You can read between the lines What you‘ll find is grace At the bottom of humankind solo - Christian solo - Danny And once you feed the fire My will is set ablaze Strings of thoughts move towards my consciousness Prosaic cynic‘s disease makes me crawl on my knees Pulls me under in quick sand, makes me understand solo - Christian solo - Danny Feed the fire My will‘s set ablaze Strings of thoughts move towards my consciousness Prosaic cynic‘s disease makes me crawl on my knees Pulls me down with her hand, makes me understand Carbon phrases take all their ways to fi nd you A phrase of love I‘m afraid can‘t be shaped without heart Carbon lines fi ll space to create the perfect stream The Poet‘s dreams are flowing in it, incomplete Creating you...

Call on me - human source to nothingness Blindly see through dreams Unlock the key to a world by void concealed On black ice beneath the sea From Malkuth earth reborn Walks the one to marry moon and sun Be one refl ection Sincere - your organic thought machine Reckons the plane obscene I can feel the deafening silence Illusive asylum arriving for real Contemplate on things that one can't see for real or feel Foresee the consequence your deeds reveal Into earth withdrawn Lies the one to carry moon and sun In fractured action Sincere - your organic thought machine Levels the plane obscene I can see beyond the horizon A stellar asylum – illusively real Wasteland on the moon in which you drown Sink down in silence Wasted, seethe in bloom - solid body in liquid ash From Malkuth earth reborn Walks the one to marry moon and sun Be one refl ection solo - Danny Sincere - your organic thought machine Reckons the plane obscene I can see beyond the horizon Illusive asylum arriving for real Coming off the sea We have one desire - calculating infi nity Sincere - your organic thought machine Levels the plane obscene I can see beyond the horizon A stellar asylum - Illusively real Sincere - your organic thought machine Levels the planes obscene I can feel the deafening silence A string alliance – illusively real

Cthulhu 05:46
I remember Before the Watchers came Before Time became a lie I remember When molten soil fed but fl ame When we brought water from the sky I am hunger Contracting into cells I am the anger Wherein the hunger dwells Asunder My temples have been torn asunder My children lost Forlorn they wander Until my body is reborn in thunder That crushes the world Cthulhu Buried in the deep Cthulhu Awaken from your sleep Cthulhu No more in death to lie Cthulhu For even death may die I can see where you are Sense the fear in you Taste the blood of a star Feel me breathe in your soul Like the poets of old For they always knew When the lids of the one eternal eye unfold All-encompassing Nothing but itself it shall behold And asunder The universe is torn From under the endless seas shall be born a wonder A rift in space-time to adorn and plunder The ruins of a lie I am the keeper of the gate Herald of the Ancients Physical mind If you seek yourself in me Me in you is all you will fi nd solo - Morean Asunder Reality is torn From under pulsing skin shall be born a wonder A new breed of creature to adorn and plunder The ruins of a world Cthulhu Buried in the deep Cthulhu Awaken from your sleep Cthulhu No more in death to lie Cthulhu For even death may die

Lucid delusion of force Illusions refl ect on their source Refl ections to weaker minds appear True when by darkness concealed Re-open your mind - Magnitude‘s divine source - Sync into your soul Be torn by light Away from the boundaries of death Activation - As neurons blaze A cell‘s invoking space inside your brain Magnet‘s connecting to you By activating the prefrontal cortex Denominations decline in time Your soul enshrines what brightly shines Through the void science unwinds solo - Christian As neurons blaze A cell‘s invoking space inside your brain Magnets reprogram your phase A static base collaborates When orange haze cuts through the maze Lucid delusion of force Illusions refl ect on their source Refl ections to greater minds appeal Fascinating, but unbelievable Re-open your mind - Magnitude‘s divine source - Sync into your soul Be torn by light Away from the boundaries of death

Orgonism 08:32
A silent earthquake Ripples along all senses Invisible sirens spin astral beacons Pull strings along the web of nerves Tighten the noose around the core Like sleep the vessels grow Soaking in elysian juice - and craving more Invoking in the deep the source of the glow Gentlest trembles fl ow like streams With every breath resistance bleeds Swoon turns fl esh to lucid dreams Of older spheres - and the torrent feeds Through swelling ether - a raptured lilt Through throbbing fl esh the neurons fl y Minds dissolve in wanton tilt Like angels falling from the sky In Daath I emerge Limitless, trailing light as mere shadow In Chokmah I enter In Tiphareth I strike Secreting pulses Nectar of the gods In Kether I abide Source of the glow solo - Danny Parallels merge in purity Into a center of gravity A hungry singularity Gathered and harvested, never attached As the pull of dark matter Bends the stars with unseen hands My spark sets creation in motion From humblest cell to grandest lord Amygdala beckons to the dance Which fear itself abhors solo - Danny Where there was nothing Now want is pulsing The lie of self exposed as the joke it is From primal urge and quantum foam and hungry vacuum A dimension is born Free-fl owing fi elds awaken orgiastically Earth themselves as untouchable shadow Love Under Will propels the vessel The temporary weave in the fabric of worlds that is I Orgonism I Organasm solo - Christian Massless bliss - oxytoxic tachyons Endowed in ubiquity Cannot be dragged into the subluminal swamp The blind observer reduced to a toy Riding the pulse to where alpha and omega meet Spectres gather at the fringe of incarnation Accelerate to escape velocity Momentum, take us to the other side of life Die Orgonism Die Organasm

Meagre pickings in the Kuiper Belt But for the guardian on the cliff In her pelt comets melt And moons burst, but only if Her 13 brothers didn't get them first Out here, the dark hides more than gases Beyond Nemesis we celebrate Quite a few more Jovian masses The Oort cloud is demonic Giants crawl, robots trawl The Swarm went transplutonic All is spun towards the sun The Oort cloud is fantastic Tyche fell out of hell Times are dire, and measures drastic Gotta mash her before the crash They broke the lightyear barrier From the debris they spawn Navigation on radiation Ages at .c have dawned The myriads that sweep the fringes Conjoined they haul and hurl and hug and tug, so thinnest fog Becomes the oceans of the world The Oort cloud is demonic Thrusters heave, spiders weave The Swarm went isotonic Interlace Hilbert space The Oort cloud is surrounded! Higgs Fields retch, tendrils stretch Absorb what once abounded Move as one towards the sun They are now the Oort Swarm Dyson Cloud Oort Swarm Dyson Cloud Just a matter of time now Just a time now of matter

As gases flee And mantles rear Let's get it on This Dyson Sphere What night sky now What empyrean Too late to die now Rolling stria Glowing, Cytherean A stellar Pangaea Sucking giants into spirals With a pocket singularity Sucking giants into spirals With a pocket singularity Mercury's iron bones Venus' carbon wisdom Mars's rocks and stones now An astral nervous system An iron prison Sucking giants into spirals To catch a star With a pocket singularity An iron prison Sucking giants into spirals To catch a star With a pocket singularity Saturn was easy His moons a treasure trove Uranos made us queasy And Neptune downright sick; but Jove - - Torn apart between two black holes, a thousand earths almost fell, crushing all, out of control - That did not go so well. Darkness wanes - The Swarm's embrace Has been attained As everything clicks into place

Day and night have gone now Time to spawn now, a new dawn now Between twin skins Biogeny begins its spin Seeps along bionic skeletons Lines become vines become spines Holoplasma Growing, imperial A clasping miasma Conjoins Incubates What will awaken? Expands Incarnates What will awaken? An iron prism To hatch a star An iron prism To hatch a star Life seeking life finding life Surviving and thriving, the hive comes alive Lurching, searching, awed and flawed The church becomes god We cling, we dive, we float, we forever Calibrate and navigate Hiccups of wars Swamps of infection Distinction and extinction A sentient surge as minds merge What will awaken? Post-biotic ascension A continuous expansion All must converge now! What will awaken? The Great Beast stirs in a brand new body Profusion through astral veins Evolution sheds all chains What will awaken? Kaleidoscope to mosaik to hologram Code turns to spell Turns life forms to cells In circuits and covens The hive mind is woven Stirs in its shell The God Oven In its shell The God Oven

Sol Omega Now all is one Centaurus and Vega Let's join the Alpha party Sol Omega The seeding has begun Nurtured on boundless power Event horizons dawn There's more stars to devour Mite to raptor, we must spawn Sol Omega Let's get the fuck out of here Sol Omega Let's get out of everywhere Thrusters flow, star in tow Plasma grows where lasers nestle Iron rolls to the poles The Dyson shell becomes a vessel Our deceased Have been a gambit Greatly increased the swarm's Ancient ambit This orbit Grows morbid All gather! Ready? Pull! One last convulsion Pull! Every stratum now striatum We have propulsion We have embarked Sol Omega The God Atom Sol Omega Genesis Ark The God Atom

Under the world In timeless frost and fire cocooned Cloaked in winged death A vast tectonic moon Ten million years, Scorching rock and flesh, descend, Howl their epitaph A funeral for a continent Within the naked bones of earth Crushed in mummified embrace Where stony fangs claw into space A slow cold heart awaits rebirth Rumbling in his grave Pounding in the deep Putrid fuming Erebus Stirs in his sleep And from the East The storm's atrocious blades Bring heaven's wrath, Skewer and cascade Upon the brave Desperately they creep Ride the tail of the buried Beast Above the skeleton of god In endless midnight, spectres dance Where land and sky in endless trance Dream in the dark of living blood Lie in wait Bide their time Craving flesh solo - Morean Arise Man against rock Heart against ice With devil's tongues the mountain calls Bodes blinded glory To the worm that crawls Taunts mortality solo - Christian solo - Danny Eyeless whiteness Soundless With devil's tongues the mountain calls A summons for the damned Shades of Azrael With devil's jaws the mountain mauls solo - Danny Yawning chasms, ghostly waters Falling through a maze of blue A quick demise for him who falters Worlds born anew for him who knew That underneath this silent death A frozen chthonic empire lies In crystal pressure draws cold breath Awaking slowly beneath the ice And from the summit The other side reveals no drop But 24 million billion tons Of living, shifting tombstone For a forgotten world To elevate Our vermin fate In the abyss We take the bait Defy the weight Of earth and sky Rejoice to die For one brief kiss Deep in the bowels of the earth Magma heaves towards the void Unseen thaw feeds mangled rock And within it, secret life solo - Christian / Danny / Christian / Danny / Christian / Danny
