Architects Of Downfall
Music: TOT / Words: I. Strimer

Verse 1:
creating the future, suppressing the past
forgetting the errors, sacrificing the life for a progress
formerly dreams, now real machines
planning the good, waking the evil in a god

Verse 2:
elements of mind, in technical forms
electricity controlling the thoughts
projections on screens, blueprints in a virtual sand
life loses its course, the network increases

Bridge 1:
the next level, is the total loss of control!

“Every progress in human history has caused a change of focus, so the digital age....!”

Chorus 1:
utopia - dreaming of strange machines
euphoria - fulfillment of dreams
hysteria - the closest to a crash
downfall - the end of all life
downfall... the end of all life...

Bridge 2:
digital letters, digital numbers, digital world, digital life,
digital love, digital war: destroying the source of reality

Chorus 2:
welcome to the machine,
the drive assembly of the downward spiral
what have we done, why did we create
we, the architects of downfall
downfall... the end of all life...
