    General CommentI probably got the lyrics wrong here, but I don't care - it's an instrumental track technically I guess.
    Beautiful /Beautiful/ track. Probably one of my favourite ambient tracks I've got, which is surprising considering it's a Fear Factory song. It looks so out of place in my ambient playlist.

    Anyway. Whenever I close my eyes and listen to this song, I always imagine a huge docking area in space. Each sound representing different ships coming and going, and the thuds and clunks and stuff being industrial type work going on... I just wish it was longer than 7 minutes.

    General CommentI think the "lyrics" are
    "On their feet, mothers.
    Defeat, fathers.
    Please, forsaken

    Come back, violence in our name
    Come back, violence in our name"

    Or something to that effect. If you listen to Human Shields, the song before it on Archetype, they share several common parts musically, so it'd make sense that they would lyrically too.

    General CommentJust to put this in because it was a bit annoying while I was browsing around here, solitude is about the closest as far as I can recon, basically its a bunch of clips from Human Shields into an instrumental, you if you actually listen to it, you can catch the bits from "on their feet
    Mothers bare the burdens of our defeats
    Fathers are on their knees praying for mercy " in the beginning, followed by "So much violence in our name"

    It clips out a bit on the first parts, but, "on their feet, mothers .. burdens ... defeat, fathers(mercy?) ... knees ...(less audible: praying for?) mercy" are pretty easy to recognize.

    Dude that posted the original lyrics might be on crack, dunno, anyway, buy some new speakers or a decent set of headphones if you're going to listen to the song, great instrumental imo and a decent way to end the CD aside from the bonus track.

    Updated to reflect Solitude's input
