"They've Come" is a concept album. Each track tells the next chapter of the story through title and soundscape
A sentient race of synthetics have come to earth offering universal knowledge, power, and immortality. Seeing the destruction the human race has wrought upon ourselves and our planet, they aren't taking "no" for an answer.
-01 Arrival: The machines land and demonstrate their superiority in a show of unimaginable force.
-02 Comply: The primitive defenses of our race prove ineffective against the vast technological superiority of the synthetics.
-03 The War: A machine scans the landscape searching for the last of the human resistance. As it stumbles across a lone human it calls out to the other machines and moves in to chase him briefly through the landscape before being faced with a full battalion of the resistance. A great battle ensues.
-04 Organic Processing: The humans are led through a series of camps that the machines seem to be creating by manipulation of their own bodies. Surrounded by a host of synthetic sights and sounds, the landscape itself seems to be shifting into what appears to be a factory of some sort. Fear takes over as you are carried towards the opening of what you realize is a processing plant while half human screams emanate from inside.
-05 Assimilation: You are given a tranquilizer and you completely relax as a conveyor belt moves you towards the opening of the processor. An ominous feeling overtakes you as you calmly view the various devices preparing to greet you. A door closes behind you and for a moment there is silence save for the machines getting into position. You feel no pain as the machines tear and slice at your flesh replacing and adding synthetic components to your body. Beginning to feel more powerful by the minute you are suddenly left for a moment to enjoy your newfound strength, testing out your new voice for a moment before rising in a display of force never imagined in dreams.
-06 Evolutionary Crescendo: As all of the remaining humans are gathered and processed into more advanced versions of themselves, the human race grows exponentially in knowledge. A worldwide celebration of peace and togetherness ensues as we enjoy our new strengths.
-07 We Are One: With no ignorance remaining in the world the human race is free to explore the universe together in peace.
We Are One - lyrics:
No war, no strife as we evolve past the brink
of a mind led astray 'til it's wasting in the clink
Surpass the conflicts of this infinite reality
we set aside religion, sex, race and nationality
prevailed against the pestilence of ignorance and crime
Existing only to love, forever in time
you become me as we all become one
evolving as a whole as we escape the sun (come on)
eradicate the world overflowing with the lies
and the cries of the lost souls trapped behind those eyes
The fear that consumed us and weighed on your mind
Gone with jealousy and hate simply left behind
Just love, respect, no feelings of reject
Perfecting our emotions as we finally connect
Lost in the beauty that is everything we are
Together in the knowledge we're all made of the stars
All the secrets of the universe unfold like origami
while we synthesize reality and bend it to our will
New dimensions of data to surf like a tsunami
As we open up our souls and let the knowledge instil
As advances in technology are ready to install
every realm of enlightenment is open to us all
Absorbing information 'til achieving satisfaction
Checkin out of the grid to put the method in action
Alternate from Carbon form and back to Silicon
As we rock the alpha process until the break o' dawn
Now we keep the party rockin' in the middle of the night
Cutting through the darkness as we shift into light
Formless and free, eclipsing the flesh
While I plug the aether and let my mind refresh
Transcending consciousness by artificial design
Embrace eternity, for you are divine
