I figure the title alone would be enough to catch someones attention. So, that lengthy title is also the lengthy title of my newly finished song and the sixth installment of nine in my little sci-fi story.

Lyrically this was one of my favorites. Because the protagonist (simply named Pariah) at this point is preparing to go to war with the super-sentient and super-massive machine race that annihilated all existence and Earth (dubbed the Logic Council). The structure that he has been living in (Named Atlas, a super-massive one that creates universes) is basically the collective consciousness of a previously extinct race. Weakening due to extreme age and the fact that it actually moves backwards through time, it lets itself die so the protagonist can embed his consciousness into the structure to more effectively oversee the war.

The song basically describes the process of dying inside this thing and turning yourself into energy and spreading your consciousness out across the entire universe.

Parallel Infinities, Interval 6:
Atlas Will Fall As The Weight Of The Universe Becomes Apparent

The Logic Council
Human...Viable possibility if emotional drives are subjugated....
...Aggression factor useful if controlled...
Cybernetic augmentation...?
...Impressive genetic malleability...
..Impressive technical potential...
But this shell is only a vehicle...


Relinquish your form to us

Atlas
Dwelling on the fringes of space
Eons of searching have come to an end
No longer can we hide between worlds
The war for existence has begun

The Pariah
Galaxies tossed across colossal voids
Crushing stars to liquid to drown them
A war where a lifetime is but a pause between
The thought process of man and machine

Atlas
Slide into the waters, immerse yourself in energy
Let the river guide you, into the realms of half-life
The fluorescent blue emanates, glowing with brilliance
The river accepts you in, Slip gently into unconsciousness

The Universe
Slide into the waters
Embrace eternity

The Pariah
As I enter the essence of this structure
The water becomes increasingly dense testing the limits of my body
The current increases and deeper I go, lungs filling fast
My body dies and violently separates from mental reality

The Universe
Slide into the waters
Embrace eternity

The Pariah
I am no longer of man, formless with no physical link
Consciousness embedded existence, necessary step in the path of war
Atlas whispers into my ear, like haunting winds in a hollow forest

Atlas
Though eternity is uncertain, our existence is sacrificial

The Pariah
For the last time I can recall
The man that was once me

My sins I do not forgive
Though little it matters
For I am no longer of man

Atlas + The Pariah
Galaxies tossed across colossal voids
Crushing stars to liquid to drown them
A war where a life is but a pause between
Actions considered between man and machine

Atlas

As you die and are reborn
We see the birth of the new universe
As we fall into the beginning of time
You must see this war to the end

The Universe
Slide into the waters
Embrace eternity

Atlas
Your rebirth is almost complete
And now we can peacefully die
The fate of all is in your hands
Our lives remain insignificant

The Universe
Fall into unconsciousness
And die...
