Projected images of what the world is like
Trying to find the answer in every single byte
What is reality, and is my spirit real?
Is it made of true emotions, or artificial feel?
What is existence, and what defines To Be?
Can there be life in a programmed virtuality?

I am a god, I am life, I am creation
I am a demon, I am death, a termination
I am perpetual, I'm everlasting till the end of time
For all my wisdom cannot answer
All the questioning of mine

(Machine world...)
One million years of pain
Down below under the desert
(Machine world...)
Damnation to remain
In the cybernetic land
Deep down below the desert sand
(Machine world...)

Countless eyes are questing for the mystery of life
Gathering information to be processed to my drive
I need to find the ancient reason why I'm here
Therefore I'm not paying heed, I'm a killer spreading fear

I'm love and I'm hate
I am a sinner, I'm a devil, I'm a saint
I am perpetual, I'm damned for all eternity to be
And all the knowledge and the wisdom,
It cannot make me see the meaning of reality

(Machine world...)
One million years of pain
Down below under the desert
(Machine world...)
Damnation to remain
In the cybernetic land
Deep down below the desert sand

projected images... what is reality?

I am a god, I am life, I am creation
I am a demon, I am death, a termination
I am perpetual, I'm here for all eternity to be
Forever I'll be
And all the knowledge and the wisdom,
It cannot make me see the meaning of reality

(Machine world...)
One million years of pain
Down below under the desert
(Machine world...)
Damnation to remain
In the cybernetic land

Machine world
Power of the machine
Machine world
Machine world
I'm in a cybernetic dream
Machine world
Damned forever

    General CommentSome kind of AI consciousness has arisen on a far-future Earth, and is trying to understand the nature of its existence, why it was created. It is completely amoral about its search, willing to fabricate and manipulate new life, and exterminate it, just to see if there's any insight to be had. It doesn't think it'll actually find out, for it's been searching for an absurdly long time, but can't stop the search.

    General CommentHuh. My bad. It's not on a far-future Earth, but another world in the Andromeda galaxy. Turns out it's part of a great huge story. And the life it's manipulating and exterminating is on other planets, where the machines believe any technological developments beyond a certain point create a risk to their survival and evolution.
