Lyrics

Singularity

Written By: Paradox Please

When your standing there
floating through life
and breaking the ties to the bridges
left behind
in your deluded state of mind

We'll reach a confusion to form this illusion

And we'll save
the future generations
from this pain we've causes
to rearrange this world

You must open your mind
to the never ending change
mask the conformity
in your deluded state of mind

We'll reach a confusion to form this illusion

We'll follow through
with our plans
we'll seek the truth

And we'll save
the future generations
from this pain we've causes
to rearrange this world

Divide & Conquer

Written By: Paradox Please

If hope is all i have,
to keep me going,
then you,
you have failed,
to keep your only,
promise
When I will divide,
and conquer ,
what will follow,
forcing a life you’ve never,
known,
our world is crumbling
When I will divide,
and conquer ,
what will follow,
forcing a life you’ve never,
known ,
our world is crumbling ,
down

State of Emergency

Written By: Paradox Please

Sneak past the operation,
and hide the secret path,
that we’ll run to for cover,
cause freedom has a price
Retreat the aliens are coming,
escape the battle before you,
state of emergency
Conceal the information,
create a revolution,
infiltrate the source,
uncover the hidden truth,
Retreat the aliens are coming,
escape the battle before you,
retreat run to salvation,
defy the corporation

Empire of Illusion

Written By: Paradox Please

Will you stabilize,
your reckless thoughts within,
and begin this peaceful march,
for what you believe
This land is yours,
don’t be captivated,
undefined truths
We’re pushing forward,
and holding nothing back,
they feed us information,
to take control,
cease and desist
Will you endure this despotism,
of an entire world,
or will you stay the course,
for the ultimate reward
This land is yours,
don’t be captivated,
undefined truths
We’re pushing forward,
and holding nothing back,
they feed us information,
to take control,
cease and desist
Hey, hey, hey, hey (x4)

Say Goodbye

Written By: Paradox Please

I've been drowing in this pool of life,
as I watch all these people grow,
don't deny the strength you hold,
you will open up inside
Say goodbye (say goodbye)
to all of what's left inside (left inside)
you can say goodbye (say goodbye)
it will never be the same
I have grasped the stars in my reach,
realigned them for myself,
like burning light i'll shine through the dark,
and we’ll surface above
Say goodbye (say goodbye)
to all of what's left inside (left inside)
you can say goodbye (say goodbye)
it will never be the same
And I won’t ever let your evil consume my soul,
I can’t take this anymore give me complete
control
