Track Name: MECHINA - MASS LOCKED
Proximity alert
Destination reached
Stabilizing cryobay life support systems
Cryosleep complete, stand by

"Andara, awakening from 110 years of cryosleep, in high orbit above what will be known as planet Acheron"

Opening starscape windows
Track Name: MECHINA - ASHES OF OLD EARTH
Arise, feeble relics of old earth
Those reborn upon the shoulders of gods
We are the children of Hyperion
Ashes of old earth

A century draped in black
A bloodline stained by tyrants and man
oh, how feeble and cruel
are hopes and dreams to begin again

We are the children of Hyperion
Fragments scattered beyond the sun

See this world
Free of man
How does it feel to abandon the dead?
A world left to rot
The world that we lost
Earth, betrayed by us all

We sailed upon endless waves and set our eyes upon distant horizons
The ashes of old earth
Someday, will be forgotten

Dissent, within every breath
Fear guiding every step
Her eyes behold a world never seen before
A gem found in a sea of coal

Her body, reflecting the light
Cast by the distant horizon
Remember child
As our generation dies
The essence of life
Came from the Sky

We are the children of Hyperion
Fragments scattered beyond the sun

See this world
Free of man
How does it feel to abandon the dead
A world left to rot
The world that we lost
Earth, betrayed by us all

We sailed upon endless waves and set our eyes upon distant horizons
The ashes of old earth
Someday, will be forgotten

See this world
Free of man
How does it feel to abandon the dead
A world left to rot
The world that we lost
Earth, betrayed by us all

We sailed upon endless waves and set our eyes upon distant horizons
The ashes of old earth
Someday, will be forgotten X2
Track Name: MECHINA - STARSCAPE
HER FROZEN BREATH
IGNITED BY THE DISTANT SUN
OMNIPOTENT FROZEN EMBERS
SUSPENDED LIKE THE STARS ABOVE
THE COLD STEEL BENEATH HER FEET
IT TRIGGERS A HAUNTING MEMORY
THE LOOK IN HER CHILD’S EYES
WHEN SHE SAID HER FINAL GOODBYE

WHEN GIVEN THE CHANCE
TO EVOLVE OR ADVANCE
WE RETREAT TO THE PAST
PRAYING FOR GHOSTS TO GUIDE OUR HAND
OUR LIVES FAR TOO SHORT
OUR MINDS FAR TOO COLD
OUR PAST BURIED IN STONE
OUR WORLD ABSENT OF HOPE

OUTLAST THE DANGER
TO BE REWARDED B Y WONDER
COLLIDE AND ASSEMBLE
BOUND BY BEAUTY AND CRUELTY
DESTINED TO LOSE
SO MUCH WE WONT SEE

UNTIL THE DAY WE ARE PLANET BOUND
IN SEARCH OF SOLID GROUND
WE COPE WITH SHATTERED MEMORIES
ENDURING SIMULATED GRAVITY

WHEN GIVEN THE CHANCE
TO EVOLVE OR ADVANCE
WE RETREAT TO THE PAST
PRAYING FOR GHOSTS TO GUIDE OUR HAND
OUR LIVES FAR TOO SHORT
OUR MINDS FAR TOO COLD
OUR PAST BURIED IN STONE
OUR WORLD ABSENT OF HOPE

OUTLAST THE DANGER
TO BE REWARDED B Y WONDER
COLLIDE AND ASSEMBLE
BOUND BY BEAUTY AND CRUELTY
DESTINED TO LOSE
SO MUCH WE WONT SEE x3
Track Name: MECHINA - CRYOSHOCK
Oh, THE PRICE THAT WE PAY
FOR THE LIVES WE BETRAYED
ONLY WASHES AWAY
WHEN WE TURN TO STAR DUST

THIS MOMENT IN TIME
MY LIFE WILL COLLIDE
BORN FROM THE SKY
THIS WORLD DEMANDS LIFE

The life that we seek x4

FLOATING IN SILENCE
THE PRICE WE PAY
BEGINS WITH BOUNDLESS PAIN
AWAKEN, ONLY TO DIE
FOR A NEW LIFE
I CAN HEAR THEM SCREAM
I CAN SEE THEM BLEED X2

THE BLOOD IN MY EYES
DISTORTING THE LIGHT
COLLAPSING MY MIND
MY SKIN, CRYSTALLIZED
MY SENSES ALIVE
THE PAIN GETS ME HIGH
ONLY TO BE WASTED AWAY
DESTINED TO BE
A LOST MEMORY

The life that we seek x4

DANCING IN SILENCE
THE PRICE WE PAY
BEGINS WITH BOUNDLESS PAIN
AWAKEN, ONLY TO DIE
FOR A NEW LIFE

I CAN HEAR THEM SCREAM
I CAN SEE THEM BLEED X2

WE CAME FROM THE STARS
WITH HOPE IN OUR EYES
FATE IS A LIE
MY SKIN, CRYSTALLIZED
MY SENSES ALIVE
THE PAIN GETS ME HIGH
ONLY TO BE WASTED AWAY
DESTINED TO BE
A LOST MEMORY X2

I ONLY HOPE TO DREAM
WHERE ILL NEVER KNOW PAIN

Oh, THE PRICE THAT WE PAY
FOR THE LIVES WE BETRAYED
ONLY WASHES AWAY
WHEN WE TURN TO STAR DUST

THE WORLDS WHICH WE SEEK
A LOST MEMORY
MY CELLS ON RETREAT
THEY TEAR FROM EACH OTHER

MY BONES
PARALYZED
THE PAIN
AMPLIFIED
I DIDN’T COME TO DIE
FOR A NEW LIFE
SHATTERED MEMORY
OF FACES AND NAMES
THE ESSENCE OF FATE
BEGINS TO WASH AWAY

I CAN HEAR THEM SCREAM
I CAN SEE THEM BLEED X2
Track Name: MECHINA - THE HORIZON EFFECT
INTO A COSMIC SEA
FRAGMENTS OF OUR ESSENCE
SCATTERED BEYOND THE SUN
INTO A COSMIC SEA
A FROZEN SYMPHONY

AT ANY MOMENT THIS ALL WILL END
I SHED MY SKIN OF HUMAN LIFE
TO TOUCH THE LAND
IN THE ABSENCE OF THE SKY
THE AIR COLLAPSING MY CHEST
INTO A COSMIC SEA
FRAGMENTS OF MY ESSENCE
SLOWELY BECOMING ONE

I STAND IN THE SHADOWS OF MONUMENTS
AT ANY MOMENT THIS WILL END
MY FINAL BREATH
LIKE EMBERS TURNING TO DUST
MY BODY WILL DISSOLVE
INTO THE COSMIC SEA
FRAGMENTS OF OUR ESSENCE
SCATTERED BEYOND THE SUN
INTO A COSMIC SEA
A FROZEN SYMPHONY

HOW I LUST TO BREATHE AGAIN

THIS MACHINE
LISTEN TO HER HEARTBEAT
SHE’LL SING ETERNALLY

THIS MACHINE
OH, TITAN CAN YOU HEAR ME
GRANT ME ETERNAL SLEEP

I STAND IN THE SHADOWS OF MONUMENTS
AT ANY MOMENT THIS WILL END
MY FINAL BREATH
LIKE EMBERS TURNING TO DUST
MY BODY WILL DISSOLVE
INTO THE COSMIC SEA
FRAGMENTS OF OUR ESSENCE
SCATTERED BEYOND THE SUN
INTO A COSMIC SEA
A FROZEN SYMPHONY
HOW I LUST TO BREATHE AGAIN

IN TOTAL HARMONY
WITNESS THIS MACHINE
SHIFT HER WINGS UPWARD

CAN YOU HEAR HER SING
CAN YOU FEEL HER BREATH
DEFENDING WHAT WE CALL LIFE

For the first time
I’ve opened up my eyes

I STAND IN THE SHADOWS OF MONUMENTS
AT ANY MOMENT THIS WILL END
MY FINAL BREATH
LIKE EMBERS TURNING TO DUST
MY BODY WILL DISSOLVE
INTO THE COSMIC SEA
FRAGMENTS OF OUR ESSENCE
SCATTERED BEYOND THE SUN
INTO A COSMIC SEA
A FROZEN SYMPHONY

HOW I LUST TO BREATHE AGAIN

"Andara succumbs to cryoshock not long after she awakens."
Track Name: MECHINA - ANAGENESIS
Exiled just above the highest clouds
Endlessly searching for any sound
As decades pass, we devour the outer rings
Our lifeline dependent on in-situ utility


Orphans bound by the frozen sea
We sail upon the shadows of this cruel dream
The world below, awaiting the human seed
In silence we sleep, oh titan hear our plea

We only dream within the absence of sleep
Regaling tales of human cruelty

The day we relink with our god machine

We shall become planet bound

In the end, I must amend
I beg of you, bury my flesh
Beneath the soil of the world below
This is not my home

We shall become planet bound


The elusive search for life
Hidden in the blackness of night

Enduring the cruelty of time

Every moment consumed by loss
This human slate grasping for faith
Hope itself destined to be lost
We kneel before those bound by frost`


We only dream within the absence of sleep
Regaling tales of human cruelty

The day we relink with our god machine

We shall become planet bound

In the end, I must amend
I beg of you, bury my flesh
Beneath the soil of the world below
This is not my home

We shall become planet bound

We only dream within the absence of sleep
Regaling tales of human cruelty

The day we relink with our god machine

We shall become planet bound

In the end, I must amend
I beg of you, bury my flesh
Beneath the soil of the world below
This is not my home

We shall become planet bound
Track Name: MECHINA - PLANETFALL
This mortal shell
Absorbed by the endless night
Augmented life
My senses come alive
No memory
The future unforeseen
Forever linked
To the protean machine

Unleashing a storm
Preparing the swarm
We humans set forth
Blinded by only one desire
We shall leave trails of fire

We ascend upon steel giants
In our wake
Clouds of fire

Unwilling to forfeit
The only chance
To escape the chains of orbit
They shield their eyes
Unable to recognize
Their human god
Standing upright
I hear it breath
I feel it’s heartbeat
Forever linked
In sync with the machine

Unwilling to forfeit
The only chance
To escape the chains of orbit
Track Name: MECHINA - PROGENITOR
As specters fall from on high
Trails of fire, dividing the sky
Baptized within this moment
We have waited a lifetime

We stand upon the soil
In search of our glory
Sing to the titanborn
Sleeping within orbit

Consumed by the breeze
I fall to my knees
Never again will our home be condemned
The right to amend
This world we must defend

The soil beneath my feet
Breaking away from me
Tremors of the machine
The air of this world
Is now safe to breath

We stand upon the soil
In search of our glory
Sing to the titanborn
Sleeping within orbit

Consumed by the breeze
I fall to my knees
Never again will our home be condemned
The right to amend

Consumed by the breeze
I fall to my knees
Never again will our home be condemned
The right to amend
This world we must defend
