Earth has become a dystopian society and has united under The New World Order. Technology is becoming integrated into everyday human life more than ever. Resistance is not an option.

Track Name: Embers of Existence
Where were you
When time came to an end?
You left when we needed you the most
Where were you
When death was imminent?
Your apathy cost us everything

Where were you
When our world came crashing down?

As we fall
As the Embers of Existance rise
As we fall
As the Embers of Existance rise high

How could you
Let the answers disappear?
You left when we tasted victory

How could you
Let our world go up in flames?

No more standing by
As they tear up our world
No more giving in
As the flags unfurl

We are all the same
Made of flesh and blood
We can all be killed
For bad or for good

They will tear up our world
We will all give in
As the flags unfurl

We are all the same
Made of flesh and blood
We will all be killed
For bad or for good
Track Name: A New World Order
Wake up to a new beginning
A much better way of living
We're expanding all our borders
Make way for a New World Order

Fueled by the industry, rapidly growing
A mindset of the human race
Primitive thinking completely decaying
A new dawn of what we all face

We have become a united earth
But we are scattered within the universe

Beyond my own thoughts
Is a vast emptiness
Time to destroy the fear
Time to dance in the lightning storm

Peace and prosperity through their protection
Is what they want us to believe
Our own existence descending to madness
Just breathing this travesty
Track Name: Alethia (Unbreakable)
Our wounds so deep
Are all that we keep
They're Unbreakable

Smoke is rising above the clouds
The sounds of screams have slipped away
All will be as it was before
Keeping true to what they say

Not just everyone will be blessed
They'll smother all the fire we still possess

Our wounds so deep
Are all that we keep
They're Unbreakable
We can't defy
We're waiting to die
They're Unbreakable

You stood and watched your own world burn
We've given more than you deserve
Will you ever learn?
You were saved from certain death
Now the pain only continues
Unless our society acts as one

Our wounds so deep
Are all that we keep
They're Unbreakable
We can't defy
We're waiting to die
They're Unbreakable

Alethia
Track Name: The Technocracy
Captivating our minds
Tasting life while still confined
Always surrounded by it all
Everything made out to be benign

Late is the hour
To redeem us from our powers

When we see our tainted world
When we hear our final breath
Only then will we define our fate

Deviating from the pain
Bowing down in shame
Leaving all the mystery behind

Beating in rhythm with ourselves
A place where nothing ever sleeps
Embracing inevitable times
Stirring everyone's beliefs

Painfully reminiscing
Of a time we're all missing

Deviating from the pain
Bowing down in shame
Leaving all the mystery behind

Welcome to your own demise
Crying out for change
Stumbling through the Technocracy

Breaking
You always win
Breaking
We are nothing

If I could trust you
Would I betray you?
If I could free you
Would I enslave you?
If I could love you
Why would I leave you
Confused and cold?

If I could trust you
Would I betray you?
If I could free you
Would I enslave you?
Bound by your hypocrisy
Trapped within this Technocracy
