lyrics

Lyrics:

Lost—learn to take a breath
(Is the self) what lies before you?
When you know you’ve got it going on—you breathe
Lost—learn to take a breath
(Is the self) what lies before you?
When you know just how to program lies—you deceive
Life—only deals in death
Tears lie before you.
Where we’re going isn’t far from Hell—I believe
Love—doesn’t feel the same
When it destroys you
Sell your body, buy a new one, be yourself or be me.

Die. Die. Die to become perfect…kill the old. The trashed. The new. Embrace.
Sleep! Sleep! Asleep. Be numb. Be cold, without hurt. Flesh dies. Erased.
Rise! Rise. Arise! Become a beauteous sun. Shine. Divine. And with taste.
Be! See yourself reborn. Again and again. Life goes just as far as you can pay. (Flesh goes just as far as you can strain!)

(Chorus):
And when the Sun rises up, upon the meadow of shadow.
You’ll see—all the things that you won’t see.
Suns rising up upon the meadows of shadow
Arise, we’ll show you who you were meant to be.

Lost—learn to take a breath
(Is the self) what lies before you?
Skies are bleeding broken promises that you made to me
Lost—learn to take a breath
(Is the self) what lies before you?
When you know just how to play the game you can’t be deceived
Life—only deals in death
Tears lie before you.
Where we’re going isn’t far from Hell I believe
Love—doesn’t feel the same
When it destroys you
Bathe together in the last romance aflame by the sea

(Bridge/ending):
Buy—be yourself in the body you want to be.
Die—kill yourself in the body you hate.
Be, see yourself born again, for beauty’s sake
Live, beyond life, just as long as you can pay

(just as long as you can pay…)

about

Virtual Intelligence Arizona

Virtual Intelligence plays Neon Metal–a fusion of industrial goth, electronica, J-rock, and symphonic black metal. Lyrically concerned with science-fiction, Vi represents a departure from the overplayed tropes of the cybergoth movement. Vi features the music of the transgender post-renaissance woman, Nikoletta–who’s previously offered her talents to bands such as Sin Origin and Sorrowseed. ... more
