1. Logging On[Instrumental]

2. Faceless Society

Last night I chose to end my life.
Become a part of the virtual entity.
Reduce myself to just a name,
A number and build my ID up from scratch.

My life has become cold.
New life, new ID.
Only connected through the faceless society.

Today my new life began with logging on.
Disconnected from the flesh and construction has begun.
This virtual entity is me, the re-born "I".
No human errors, only binary is real.

My life has become cold.
New life, new ID.
Only connected through the faceless society.

I live life on the screen; this is my new home.
No longer have a face...
A cable in the wall:
My link to New World,
Only a number: no name.

Only live life through the faceless society.
I live my life through the faceless society.

My life has become cold.
New life, new ID.
Only connected through the faceless society.

3. The Rise Of TriOpticon

"As the result of a merger between her first firm,
OpticIcons, and TriIcon,
Delacroix establishes TriOpticon at the age of 34.
Press Statement: issued 17.04.2047, Paris.

Welcome to TriOpticon,
Welcome to the future...
We design the future.
With the birth of TriOpticon a new era starts.
Today is a historically significant day.
A Company like none the World has ever seen before is now in business.
With the merger of OpticIcons and TriIcon
A new landmark in every field will come to life every passing day!
Come join our family of light.
TriOpticon: We design the future"

TriOpticon, what are you to become?
Caught now inside, the new reason to exist.
TriOpticon, what will it soon become?
Now she is tied to this path.

"Only she can know, and see what will come..."

Growing up and getting strong, born and let loose...
And when the firm now rises,
She feels that her fears fly.
This will be me, this one urge to live on.
So it moves on. Lust like never before.

Growing up and getting strong, born and let loose...
And when the firm now rises,
She feels that her fears fly.

"The outline of her vision is now becoming clearer.
She has taken the first of many steps
In order to fulfill her innermost urges.
The firm is now established
And over a short period of time it grows
And soon expands beyond the borders of France,
Branching out into several other parts of the world."

Multinational: much more than dream.
Now the world is watching the company.
Built up from scratch, still more fights left to fight.
Some aims are gone; some just now in her tangled mind.

"With the Firms new status and wealth,
Delacroix is able to expand
And specialise the different fields of research further,
And also speed up their work.
As the contours of the next large step for TriOpticon begins
To mature in her mind as well."

The fire burning bright, carries on, this endless fuse.
And as the yearning grows, so does the firm now rise.
With nothing more to lose, at least not for her,
And watching it all come true, she hopes not ever to die.

4. More Than Man

[Delacroix:]
"Why do I have this nagging sense
That this life is not enough time for me to see
All my visions and dreams through?
It can not end the way I am destined to by nature.
My every instinct tells me
That this is not the way I am to end my life.
I must find a new path to overcome this imaginary end of life.
I will refuse death and find a way to prolong existence ad infinitum.
I will not accept this limited form of reality that human societies have made into an irreversible truth!

Man yet not man, who is she?
A stranger on our mother Earth.
Why is she here? What is the task?
Could she be the One?
Heaven sent her down to earth?
Is she a miracle?
More than man is what she will be.
The one who is mighty, this is her dream.
More than human, what is this?
This is Delacroix...
She feels a stranger here, do not know why.
Her visions of the future:
No one has a mind that is their own.
She knows, yet does not.
Can it be a perfect race?
What we all do dream?
Order or chaos, what will she bring?
This one leading many is she/this the dream?

More than man, what will she be? Answer Delacroix...

"Will Delacroix find the path
That humans have searched
And longed for since the first civilisations on earth?
Will mankind be able to cope with the consequences of this;
Order or chaos? What then?"

Delacroix! She is all beauty.
Let me in, to the family of light!
More than man is what she will be.
The one who is more than man, holding the dream.
Order or Chaos: what will it be? Decide Delacroix!

5. TriOpticon

"As the firm expanded,
The need for labour grew rapidly.
To meet this need she developed
An extensive recruitment program
And a large scale commercial campaign.
Are you clutching to a straw,
And you can not get the ends to meet?
We will reach out a helping hand
Before you are in to deep."

Welcome to the future where everything is gold.
We will welcome everyone, young and old.
We will build a new world, different from this old.
Power, wealth will co-exist, the price is your...
Do you feel sadness in your life?
Do you feel all alone?
Come to our family of light.
Come to TriOpticon.

"Like a painter painting a picture,
She paints the world in her palette.
Like a painter creating a picture,
She creates the world in her image.
Now her doctorates at the Sorbonne comes to its full use,
As well as some hereditary qualities starts to manifest themselves
And stand out, when she now starts to draw
And develop the TriOpticon tower."

We will give you anything you need:
Anything that you crave.
All we ask of you is this:
The price for your...
Do you feel sadness in your life?
Do you feel all alone?
Come to our family of light.
Come to TriOpticon.

"The campaign draws new people to her empire
In an almost annoyingly successful manner,
And she gains further incentive to speed up the work on the tower."

We will give you anything you need:
Anything that you crave.
All we ask of you is this:
The price for your soul.
Do you feel sadness in your life?
Do you feel all alone?
Come to our family of light.
Come to TriOpticon.

6. Machines Of Mental Design

"After the completion of the tower in 2069,
And also in the aftermath of the riots of 2062,
She had earned much goodwill
And so she had a strong basis
To further expand the workforce at TriOpticon.
Delacroix also made most of their "employees" part
Of the mainframe since after all;
All she really needed was their brain
And its cognitive functions.
And what the ad did not say: their souls..."

Welcome in "units", you have entered paradise...
Transformation, from a once human form.
Unification, of mankind and the machines...
Transgression, combine the mind and machinery.

"You are in our ranks now, never again alone.
You are part of our glorious harmony, and the price is low: a mere soul..."

I will save you, we will live on,
And I will take you deep inside.
Birth, life, death; escape the final curtain.
Rise machines of mental design!
New science; she has mastered human kind.
New society; Delacroix has changed our lives.
Change direction. We are part of the machine.
They are stronger; they are a part of the new time.
You will save me, I will live on, and you will take me deep inside.

"She seduces their minds and makes them loyal to the death,
Although she promises more than just this life.
She makes them feel proud when they return from work.
She thinks; new hardware, we start from scratch:
New software, the programs we decide.
She says; you will forever live on..."

Save your self, saved from the final curtain.
Open the mind and let me in...

"But she has more in mind than what she says to them.
She uses them in her more and more twisted mind.
Her heritage combined with her human DNA
Starts to show more and more in her actions.
A reoccurring theme for Delacroix starts turning into an obsession.

[Delacroix:]
So why do I feel different?
Why am I not satisfied with my humanity?
Why do I crave to be more?"

Birth, life, death; the machines of mental design!
Birth, life, death; escape the final curtain.
Rise machines of mental design!
Save your self, saved from the final curtain.
Open the mind and let me in...

7. Puppets Of The Mainflame

"I have no choice but to correct my wrong.
Events have taken a wrong turn
And the consequences will possibly be very grave
If nothing is done.
What shall I do and how shall I go forth?
The Guardian of Future Time is starting
To feel very uncomfortable with his actions."

It its the most beautiful I have ever seen,
A tribute to mankind.
Close their eyes, it is like it is a dream.
It is the most beautiful they have ever been.
A triumph for mankind...
Open the eyes, they trust her: come in! We are dreaming!
What makes us loose all control?
Concealing what she really does inside your soul.
Morning comes and it is time for work.
We are Tired, but no rest for the best.
We are loyal beyond this world.
Evening comes and it is time for life.
Fired up, but no time but for sleep.
They are puppets of the mainframe.
Am I dreaming? They make me loose all control.
Screaming as it reaches deep inside my soul: inside my mind.

"He has awaken one of the "units"
And made him realise what is going on
And he instructs him how to make a rebellion
Inside the tower and TriOpticon,
Without getting the attention of Delacroix
Before it is too late for her to intervene."

Much more does she expect! Forever, is it permanent...
What life? I love you was her first words!
What more can she expect? Already we are parted from life.
I hate you was my first thought! I am not dreaming.
Filled with pain, "No more!" he cries.
Revealing what she really does inside your mind.
Screaming! I believed the words she fed in me.
Betrayer: covered in lies! Now all the world shall see.
Leaving! I leave her soon. She will not own me. Never!
Uncover it all, the puppets will be free!
With a smile she thinks I live for her...

8. War Within

"Will the plan succeed and will future escape the consequences of his actions?"

Something is wrong inside the family of light.
"Wonderful": Just a scam, not the truth.
Tomorrow she will fall like many before.
Now it is done, step out of misery.
Another feels him call...
Many aggressive: followed a leader...
A voice had brought their souls inside.
Now he is opposing, sending a message: Opening their eyes.
Delacroix. What a shock before her eyes: No more!
He wants to take away her life! Another joins them all...
No more oppression, no more deception,
She will not catch their souls again.
Freedom is calling, her tide is turning:
Opens her eyes: Now war within.
Will they win? I can not see.
This was not the dream, as I wanted it to be.

After some time it becomes clear
That Delacroix is the strongest of the two sides in the conflict,
And after a number of the "units" manages to escape her mainframe
She becomes immensely enraged and finishes the internal war quite rapidly."

Now war within. Will they win? I can not see.
This was not the dream, as I wanted it to be.
Oh what a fight. War within.
It could not be that this was the end to be. What a sight...

9. Escaping Time

"Delacroix has won, and is out for the "unit"
That caused this delay in her work.
She quickly finds him after searching the mainframe,
And starts to dissect his mind for answers.
She soon connects the info she gets to
Why she has made quantumleaps in technology."

This technology makes past and future come together.
Lost no direction; found the path that led behind.
First to biology: to find the key and write it down.
That was my very first defense against the world.
She found the key; she knew that age would come to her.
Life is just an active search of life... Escaping time.
She saw the firm would start to live and breathe all by it self...
And so she starts to create a new human race.
She found the key; she knew that age would come to her.
Life is just an active search of life... Escaping time.

"It is to late to stop now.
She is to close to achieving her dream, her vision."

She found a traitor and he spoke himself of what she not knew.
The final pieces and now she has seen it all.

"Delacroix is astounded by the information
She now holds about her background
And how the puppets rose to cast her down.
Now her desire is further fuelled and with an even stronger resolve
She continues her work."

She found the key; she knew that age would come to her.
Life is just an active search of life... Escaping time.
Time is not the end. The end will never come for me.
No more to flee; thus escaping time.

10. A Secret Revealed

"As Future's attempt to overthrow Delacroix,
By using the workers of TriOpticon, failed and backfired,
He now had a hard time accepting the defeat
Of his first attempt to correct his mistake.
The rest of the Guardians will have to be informed,
And it is very reluctantly he summons them
To confess his sins and ask their advice and help."

It seems like something is turning.
What did I leave on the earth?
He thinks the time has come.
What has my child become since birth?
Now I know what was burning,
Why I have this nagging sense.
How can I stop this yearning? Purest pyromania.
What did I leave on the earth?
What did I think of then?
He speaks to them slowly and soft.
The secret is revealed.
We heard that one is not learning:
So now please let us see how she made them the victims:
Purest thing ever on earth.
What did I leave on the earth?
What did I think of then?
He speaks to them slowly and soft.
The secret is revealed.

"One night Delacroix has a dream of being in an unknown and strange place,
Which she never has seen the likes of before.
This puzzles her mind and she is greatly troubled by this incident."

It is so dark in here, No light at all.
No faces here, none at all.
Where are all, where are all my many joys?
They have been stolen, just like my machines.

"The secret Future has been carrying is finally out in the open
And the rest of the Guardians are puzzled by Futures lack of development
When it comes to learning from his mistakes.
Delacroix is the daughter of Future: The secret is out."

What did I leave on the earth?
What did I think of then?
He speaks to them slowly and soft.
The secret is revealed.

11. Point Of No Return

Started this life, I am the one to blame...
Family comes second hand.
Got to stop her now: for the future of man... Point of no return.
No more waiting from those who wants us well,
For they all know she has come too far...
(They come...) From far beyond the valleys,
Flies above the earth: Come across the river... Point of no return.

12. Intervention From Beyond

Oh no (mortality), what a dreadful delight.
Immortal: the purest essence of might.

"In the same instance as the Guardians of Time materialises themselves
In the tower, Delacroix quickly transfers herself into the Mainframe."

Guardians, intervening from beyond,
They have come for her, to end her fantasy.

[Delacroix:]
You left me, I hate you; please try to fight me!
Guardian of the Future: No mercy progeny; I can not let you live.
Mine, they are mine, they are mine... Mine and only mine.
You are mine; you are mine: Mine and only mine.

"The Guardians of Time use their powers to tear apart her earthly body
And the tower in an instance." But in the process something happens
As a result of what the Guardians does to destroy her world...
The essence of Delacroix remains on earth and not in the Mainframe as intended.
She manages to collect the scattered fragments of her soul
And takes on an abstract life form."

Trapped and lost. Everything is lost.
She's watching everyone. Where can I run?
Where can I hide from him? No one hears.
No one sees. Most of all no one cares.
They all obeyed, listening to her charming voice.
Mine, you are mine, you are mine. Mine and only...
Mine, you were mine, you were mine... Mine and only mine.
They are mine: you are mine... Mine and only mine.
You are mine... Mine...

13. The Journey

"And in the form of a spiritual being,
Delacroix disappears into the portal,
Which was left unattended, and into the Realm."

She has lost, now she is gone; she has nothing, she had all...
She has lost, now she is gone; she has nothing, she had all...
She is a beauty but a beast; she got caged, she was unleashed.
She speaks softly to your heart, as your head gets ripped apart.
You can not run. She can not escape the ones within.

"The Guardians of Time notices this and follow her inside the Realm."

Fades out, fades out. Nothing left behind...
Disappearing, vanishing. Pitch black eyes.
Won't you come along with me to another time,
Where you can be free? Won't you like to fly away, to another time,
Where you can be free? Something is wrong. What has been done?
Bright lighting as the sun, where is electricity?
Has my time come for me? Powers lost and where are I?
Staring in these demons' eyes, I do not know; is it too late...
As I am drawn to the gate.

"A battle commences.
Delacroix is stronger than ever in this form
And the powers handed down from her father now fully comes to life.
She gets away for a second, and due to her new found strength,
The Gatekeeper is not able to stop her escape
Through one of the other dimensional gates."

Fades out, fades out.
Nothing left behind...
Disappearing, vanishing.
Pitch black eyes.
Won't you come along with me to another time,
Where you can be free? Won't you like to fly away, to another time,
Where you can be free? Won't you come along with me to another time,
Where you can be free? Won't you like to fly away, to another time,
Where you can be free?

The Guardians does not see through which gate she escaped,
So they does not know where she is.
They did not succeed in destroying her
And so they must wait for her to manifest herself in history
Of that time or dimension she escaped to."
