2040 - desperation, humans gone, another age Microcosmic implantations caused a universal rage. Bolts, bones, flesh and wire, CPU and ionic brain, Metal hands of carbon skin, humanity betrayed. Hypostatic armageddon, co-existent, genderless, Tribute to a grand alliance conditioned to prevail. Total blindness, aboulomania, no will and want, inequity. Victor's monsters came into being, synthetic after all. Dystopia Where have we gone, what happened to us? It’s no longer me, I'm saluting to my new self. Artificial derivation, organic creature, lifeless breed, Unconsenting deadly matter, breathless, homeless, evil seed. Temporarily disillusioned and out of control We're shaking hands with any maniac we don't know. Dystopia Where have we gone, what happened to us? It’s no longer me, I'm saluting to my new self.

In my head a thousand words Incapable of thinking Yes or No So in disguise, I'd rather leave that place And seek to find the truth behind my face In my hands a thousand deeds Incapable of building up the core I'm paralyzed, stagnant and congealed I trust in you, no matter what you do Will you relieve me of my pain – it's not the same Through darkest hours we have gone – yet on the run Whatever there will be – I promise you I'll stay I'll fight for you and cry for you my friend Until the End An honest friend, upright and loyal and loving Who stands up right against the tide and guides your way Receiving you, fearless and caring and faithful I'm afraid, it's not too late And it keeps me sane Will you relieve me of my pain – it's not the same Through darkest hours we have gone – yet on the run Whatever there will be – I promise you I'll stay I'll fight for you and cry for you my friend Until the End

These goddam bullets chasing me Can't stand the pressure, stay the same Hunter and prey in deadly union Revised invention of a race Love your brother before you kill him Lose your mind before you think Crawling through a barren desert Seeking balance on the brink 7000 miles away from home They drill me and kill me, then shoot and reboot me Oh Lord, I'm so insane Let me go home again Shells and tanks, all smoke and fire Laser guns and hybrid drones Plasma-powered semi-humans Armies of ten thousand clones Biohazard toxic twisters Knocking on my brother's door Panic, envy, and avarice Led to this ungrateful war Fight - another gruesome war Lie - another stupid lie Cry - on any wounded man Die - another useless death in vain 7000 miles away from home They drill me and kill me, then shoot and reboot me Oh Lord, I'm so insane Let me go home again Rage - spreading like fire in the hearts of this age Wage - war in the minds of the honest and brave

I only believe in what I see and what I hear Don't question the unjudgable or wonder why I'm here Don't think of the unthinkable and speak no lie to you No otherworldly flavor will poison what I do My sense of yearning has helped me to believe In what I can't see in this strange world Transcendence Transcend into another world, cross the borderline Let the spirits come to you, I promise you'll be fine My doubts and fears and anger I'll leave behind these walls I'll give way to the feeling of feeling not at all Subtlety - What's behind the cold eyes? Concinnity - Will we ever learn the truth? Nescience - Is it mere existence? Knowledge - Lead us to wisdom My sense of yearning has helped me to believe In what I can't see in this strange world Transcendence

Awaken stranger, what have you done? These war-torn memories are sketching your skin. All peace and loving relieving you Return to life now – that's what you do. When she leaned over him she granted him absolution She took away the burden and the guilt that lay heavy on his shoulders And washed clean his face scared by the dirt of that gruesome war That had left so many in condemnation. She's living up to living And people know her name Forgives the unforgiven All sin and doubt and blame She'd bestow great care on them Liberate them from troubled minds Reaching down to the bottom of their hearts Show them where the truth remained Take them by the hand Purify their disentangled souls She's living up to living And people know her name Forgives the unforgiven All sin and doubt and blame

Eleonore, girl from L.A. Cherubic hair, sashaying motion Orphan child, abandoned and abused Candid eyes and trembling hands A truly hopeless situation An inconclusive tragedy Adolescent mind trapped in a lie Hoping to get through. (Eleonore:) I travelled far I've seen it all And bad things happened to me. All the lights that struck down on me Endless hours in doubt and lament Disbelief and what lies ahead Walking downtown roads Don't you lead her into temptation? Prevent her soul from falling deep Be the one that guides her way And lead her out of this giant MonstroCity. People felt regretful compassion „Never long for these days to come“ So she said and lay down for sleep Weeping tenderly And in her dreams she stood at the shoreline A placid spirit eased her pain The girl relived a different story Of the beauty and the beast. Don't you lead us into temptation? Prevent our souls from falling deep Be the one that guides our way And lead us out of this giant MonstroCity Turn the darkness into daylight Think of the one she used to be Make her feel all she enjoyed in life And lead her out of this giant MonstroCity And lead her out of this giant MonstroCity

about

2040 – the human race has almost been extinguished from Earth. Both men and post-human cyborgs have entered the infernal struggle for predominance, considering total defeat as the only, ultimate outcome. Never have humans tried to unravel the parameters of their own existence on a level as profound as this. Friendship, love, and care are the humane shells used against the cold-bloodedness of the machine. The Second Age will either be a new beginning – or a fall-back into darkness.

about

The Spur Kerken, Germany

THEISPUR. - impressive, progressive, technically demanding music with electrifying and passionate performance. The band establishes ties between classic, melodic progressive rock biased towards heavy metal rudiments and modern, song-oriented, technically complex approaches. Melodic sections and almost frantic instrumental outbreaks don't interfere with the pure structures and diverse harmonies. ... more
