Parallel Infinities 2: Swarming The Sun

Just finished re-recording all the guitars, re-mixing, remastering all that good time consuming stuff. Playing is tighter and more precise than before and the overall sound pops more I think.

The song, if you listened to it before, is obviously the second part in a series of songs (eight total) and follows an outcast/pariah on Earth who is beckoned to the Eagle Nebula by alien voices. Upon his departure, a massive Armada of aliens arrives to assault Earth. It is inspired by many science fiction stories, but most namely Revelation Space and Mass Effect come play. If you have played Mass Effect, then you will notice that Sovereign and Harbinger make some guest appearances cool.gif

Lyrics, enjoy!

Parallel Infinities 2:
Swarming The Sun
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

01: A Gaze Shifted

We impose order on the chaos of organic evolution
You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it


It all began as he drifted away
Passing by Saturn he saw them all
A massive armada dwarfing our worlds
Coast through space to the face of Earth

And then a voice, drew his focus
Distant and vague, an alien tongue

The words somehow, he understood
“You will soon be the last, the only”

Alien voices seeped inside
Whispering of impending doom
The universe inhales anxiously
To bate it's breath for the coming storm
You only exist because they allow it
And you will end because we demand it
Follow the stars away from them all
Expand to survive, or conquer and die

Hands against the glass, he watches on
As Mars is razed by the drifting swarm
Unseen watchers make their presence known
As the third child is soon consumed

Your mind will be shaped to infinity
Understand the concept of eternity

You are the spatial architect
The ambassador of baryonic forms

We will end you...

Alien voices blast their chords
Shouting of the impending doom
The universe exhaled a mighty wind
It's breath to become infinite storms
You only exist because we allow it
And you will end because we demand it
A feeble attempt from the fleshy machines
Expand to survive, or conquer and die

A gaze distant
Shifts...
It's focus

02: Consequence

Pulling against their laws and forces
Gravity, Light, Newton and Einstein
Admirable are your feeble attempts
But the Sovereign's eye, cannot allow this

We are infinite, undying
Limitless
You
Mere flesh
Pure bacteria

The insects on the anthill of Earth
Know not the forms, that they attract
Manipulate the laws in place
Shall bring a harbinger of pure perfection

03: Through Absent Gates


In the beginning we will die
Our monuments, backwards through time
We extend further than light
To perceive the ends, preserve the mind
I walk through gateways
Of absence

The mind of man is trawled
The knowledge to rebuild
Recreate
Redefine
The cosmic laws

What do you want with me?
Why have I been brought here?

Tell me now who you are
Tell me what has happened

All your worlds are cast to ash
Everything you know torn to shreds

This cannot be happening
What about everyone I loved?

There is nothing that can be done
All that remains is space and them

Why all this? Why me?
You are the one who must rebuild

04: Swarming The Sun

Sovereigns unknown swarm the sun
Their vast numbers have darkened the sky
Massive machines dwarf our worlds
And wrap their arms around the shell of Earth

The sky goes black and a shadow is cast
The human race is pushed into dark

Sovereign's arms slowly crush the Earth
Cracks cross continents like erupting veins

Alien voices blast their chords
Of a different breed, of a different kind
Low frequency shifts its pitch
To rack his mind with pain
You only exist because we allow it
And you will die because we demand it
A feeble attempt from the fleshy machines
leaves a tiny mark on the cosmic time line

Their gaze, distant
Shifts...
It's focus

Your worlds will be our laboratories

Ahh, this is so brilliant man! Excellent ambience, the atmosphere reeks from every single line of text there! Makes me want to read some old school hardcore dystopia science fiction. cool.gif There is a great storyline here, and you certainly have a vast vocabulary to express the demonic, haunting feelings that are needed in order to really convey this awesome legend.

Great job!

Wow, that made my day right there! The storyline expands a lot further, eventually encompassing a few million years of this person's journey. In fact, I have started developing a somewhat of a short story structure to go along with the eight songs. Each song has a "chapter" I wrote for it, this one is not yet done, but the intro is done here: http://www.facebook.com/#!/note.php?no...162223397171264

I tend to get caught up within my own head laugh.gif

Sounds awesome, I'll look into it. smile.gif And yeah, awfully often I get caught up too, eventually almost forgetting about the real world and real people. laugh.gif
