"Lethargica" as written by and Fredrik/kidman Thordendal....
The void clenches its determined jaws
A lethargic, careless motion to kill
Monstrous, prodigious, indifferent
Slow and deliberate its torturous skills

Its molars grind and shatter
Onerous, leaden bringers of hurt
Unhurried in its deadly intent
The undoer of all, dense and inert

Its design perfected through aeon's
Pure, immaculate, clean, homicidal god-machine

Calm, precise ambition
Untroubled by the roar of unending screams,
The droning blare of absolute doom
The down-pitched moan of collapsing dreams

Composed, cold, unconditional
Uncompromising till all is death
Extinction, ruin, its malicious cause
Till the last exhalation of human breath

    General CommentThe protagonist suffered physical death in bleed, now his soul is tortured, by the veiled god behind the machine-like nature of humanity. He is punished for his enlightenment in Combustion, and destroyed, erased, improved, possibly by the guy on the cover.
