lyrics

circles of stone scepters of bone
spirits and machines and sweet silicon dreams
cosmic expanse over animus dance
prehistory turns as horizons burn
people under the sky ask constellations why
even better things end up in the bulk again

the metropolis falls and philosopher's halls
are left empty and quiet their voices are silent
like iron to rust exquisite marble busts
are left toppled and broken epitaphs unspoken

epitaphs unbroken
in the bulk again

synchronicity natural electricity
moments of regret eternity to reflect
on reasoning for collapse someone's saying perhaps
sometimes it pays to be humble as monuments crumble

prehistory turns
machines machines

we inspect our machines
believe me friends
we reflect our machines
in the end
we direct our machines
we expect the end
so we connect our machines
bring the end
bring the end
bring the end

(machines)
synchronicity natural electricity
(machines)
moments of regret eternity to reflect
(machines)
on reasoning for collapse someone's saying perhaps
(machines)
sometimes it pays to be humble as monuments crumble

(machines)
monuments crumble
(machines)
monuments crumble
(machines)
(bring the end)
monuments crumble

we're detecting machines
collecting machines
correcting machines
perfecting machines
we're detecting machines
collecting machines
correcting machines
we're perfect machines
