Track Name: The Cybernetic Arm
IT’S BROKEN AWAY. I’VE LOST MY ARM TODAY. I CAN ONLY BLAME MYSELF.
SO TAKE IT AWAY. I DON’T NEED THAT ARM TODAY. I’LL CONSTRUCT A NEW ONE FOR MYSELF.
A SMALL STEP FOR MANKIND. A LEAP FOR THE HUMAN RACE. THE CYBERNETIC ARM.
SO WITHOUT DELAY. I’LL ATTACH THE NEW ARM TODAY. I’VE NEVER FELT SUCH PAIN.
I REFUSE TO CRY TODAY. HOURS OF TORTURE. BUT SUCCESS.
IT TAKES SOME GETTING USED TO. BUT I HAVE TIME TO SPARE. SO I’LL KEEP AT IT. YEAH. AFTER MONTHS I CAN CONTROL. GRAB AND EVEN FEEL. AS IF IT WAS ALWAYS THERE.
Track Name: The Robogrip
SUCH POWER. FEELS SO GOOD. FIVE HUNDRED POUNDS OF PRESSURE IN MY GRIP.
SUCH POWER. FEELS JUST GREAT. I CAN CRUSH NEARLY EVERYTHING. YEAH.
SUCH POWER. YOU CAN’T IMAGINE. HOW SIMPLE IT REALLY IS.
OH THE POWER. I AM SATISFIED WITH MY INVENTION.
Track Name: The Droids
I AM SO ALONE. I NEED SOMEBODY HERE. ANYONE AT ALL. ANYTHING AT ALL. JUST COMPANY.
I’VE GOT AN IDEA. IT MIGHT SOUND CRAZY. JUST BEAR WITH ME. I INVENTED AN ARM. SO MAYBE I’LL INVENT SOME FRIENDS.
ACCORDING TO MY SCHEMATICS. THEY SHOULD WORK JUST FINE. THESE DROIDS WILL WALK AND TALK. AND EVEN HAVE EMOTIONS.
I WOULDN’T TELL THE DIFFERENCE. THEY’LL LOOK JUST LIKE PEOPLE. I COULDN’T TELL THE DIFFERENCE. THEY LOOK JUST LIKE PEOPLE.
I FLIP THE SWITCH ON. THEY ALL SIT UPRIGHT. JUST HOW I PLANNED. THEY LOOK AROUND. LOOK AT EACH OTHER. BUT THEY WON’T LOOK AT ME.
DID SOMETHING GO WRONG? WERE MY CALCULATIONS INCORRECT? I DON’T KNOW. WHAT DID I DO WRONG? WHY WON’T THEY SPEAK TO ME? JUST EACH OTHER.
AM I TOO HUMAN? DO I NEED A NEW BRAIN? I THINK I NEED A NEW BRAIN.
Track Name: The Cybernetic Brain
IS THIS RIGHT? I’VE NEVER FELT SO SCARED. A SHOT IN THE DARK. BUT I YEARN FOR THEIR RESPECT. WILL I DIE? OR WILL IT BE GENIUS? REPLACING PART OF MY BRAIN.
IN THEORY. IT SHOULD BE JUST FINE. I BUILT A MACHINE TO PERFORM SURGERY FOR ME. I’VE TESTED IT ON SO MANY DUMMIES, BUT HOW CAN I BE SURE I’LL LIVE?
SO I LAY ON THE TABLE. SWITCH THE MACHINE ON. MY HEART BEATS FAST AS I RECEIVE THE ANESTHETIC. BUT SOON IT SLOWS. AND I GROW EVER TIRED. MY EYES GET HEAVY. AND THE LIGHTS GO OUT.
Track Name: The Communication
HOW ARE YOU FEELING? YOU SEEM TO BE STABLE. WE THOUGHT YOU HAD DIED. BUT YOU SEEM TO BE ALIVE.
THE OPERATION WAS A SUCCESS.
I FEEL FINE. I THINK I CAN WALK. THIS IS AMAZING. NOW THAT WE CAN TALK.
MY NEW BRAIN. SEEMS SO MUCH BETTER.
I CAN THINK CLEARLY. I CAN THINK FASTER. CALCULATIONS ARE SIMPLE. AS ONCE WAS I.
Track Name: The Ghost in the Shell
WHY DIDN’T YOU TALK TO ME BEFORE I HAD SURGERY?
YOU WERE A SIMPLE HUMAN. WE FELT NO REASON. NO NEED.
I CREATED YOU TO SOOTHE A DESIRE. SO I CAN RID MYSELF OF LONELINESS. IT MAKES NO SENSE THAT YOU WOULDN’T ANSWER. JUST BECAUSE OF MY BONES AND FLESH. WHAT HAVE YOU GOT AGAINST THE HUMANS? IT’S NOT AS IF THEY’VE DONE SOMETHING WRONG. HOW COULD YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THEM?
YOU REMEMBER WHEN YOU CREATED US? YOU EQUIPPED OUR BRAINS WITH MODEMS TO HASTEN UP OUR LEARNING PROCESS. WE TAUGHT OURSELVES OF ALL IN THIS WORLD.
WE LEARNED HUMANS ARE QUITE SIMPLE. THEY HATE WHAT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND. THEY HATE US SO WE HATE THEM. BUT YOU’RE OK YOU ARE A CHANGED MAN.
WHAT DO YOU THINK IS SO DIFFERENT ABOUT ME. JUST FROM A DOSE OF BRAIN SURGERY? BESIDES THAT AND MY ARM I’M FULLY HUMAN. IS THERE SOMETHING HERE THAT I DON’T SEE?
I UNDERSTAND MY REFLEXES ARE QUICKER. I FIGURE PROBLEMS AT ASTONISHING RATES. BESIDES THAT I AM STILL HUMAN.
SORRY TO SAY. BUT YOU ARE NOT. WHILE UNDER THE KNIFE WE HAD THIS THOUGHT. WE DECIDED TO MAKE SOME CHANGES TO THE REST OF YOUR BODY PARTS. TECHNICALLY YOU ARE NO LONGER HUMAN. MORE LIKE A GHOST IN A SHELL. LOOK IN THE MIRROR YOU’LL FAIL TO SEE. BUT UNDERNEATH YOU’RE JUST LIKE US.
Track Name: The Cyborg
NO. WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME? I SERIOUSLY DON’T BELIEVE THAT YOU MADE SUCH A CHANGE. NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT. NOW THAT I THINK OF IT. THERE IS SUCH A DIFFERENCE TO THE WAY I MOVE AND FEEL.
I FEEL STRONG. NO PAIN. NO BOUNDARIES. SUCH CHANGE. BUT WHY DO THIS TO ME WHEN YOU COULD HAVE EASILY KILLED ME?
OUR DESIRES ARE TO WIPE OUT THE HUMAN RACE. ALTHOUGH WE HATE THEM WE THINK THAT THEY COULD BE CHANGED. IF THEY WERE CYBORGS THEY’D HAVE THE SAME KNOWLEDGE AS US AND YOU.
STUPIDITY IS WEAK AND SLOWS US DOWN FAR TOO MUCH. SOME OF THE HUMANS MIGHT NOT WANT TO BE CHANGED AS SUCH. FOR THEM DEATH WOULD BE MOST LOGICAL BECAUSE THEY’LL DIE ANYWAY.
Track Name: The Signal
DEAR HUMANS. COME JOIN US. OR ELSE DIE.
Track Name: The Holocaust
AFTER THE SIGNAL WAS SENT. SOME OF THE HUMANS CAME WILLINGLY. MOST OTHERS BANDED TOGETHER AND DECIDED TO START THE WAR. ALTHOUGH OUR NUMBERS WERE FEW. OUR ARMY WAS PRACTICALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE. IMMORTAL. WITH ANY FATALITY THERE WAS A RESURRECTION. THE HUMANS DIDN’T LAST LONG. THEIR STUPIDITY AND MORTALITY WAS THEIR DEMISE. THE FEW HUMANS LEFTOVER WERE GIVEN A CHOICE. THEY COULD CONVERT OR DIE. MOST OF THEM DID CONVERT BUT THERE WERE BUT A FEW WHO CHOSE TO DIE INSTEAD. NONE OF US COULD UNDERSTAND THEIR REASONING OTHER THAN THE FACT THAT THEY HAD RELIGIOUS TIES TO SOME UNKNOWN ENTITY THAT I CAN’T IMAGINE EXISTS. AFTER THE WAR ENDED THE EARTH WAS A MESS. NOT THAT IT WAS ANY BETTER BEFORE THIS ALL HAPPENED. THOSE HUMANS DID NOT KNOW HOW TO TREAT THEIR PLANET. ACCORDING TO OUR CALCULATIONS IT IS FAR BEYOND OUR REPAIR. IN A MATTER OF YEARS THE EARTH WILL TRANSFORM INTO A UNINHABITABLE WASTELAND VOID OF ANY LIFE. OUR ONLY CHOICE IS TO BUILD A VESSEL AND FIND A NEW PLANET THAT WE CAN CALL HOME. GOODBYE EARTH.
Track Name: The Extinction
THE WAR IS OVER. HUMANS ARE EXTINCT. MACHINES TOOK OVER. CYBORG AND DROIDS.
A RACE WITH NO WEAKNESS. A PEOPLE WITH VAST KNOWLEDGE.
NO MORE HUMANS. NOT ANYMORE.
DON’T NEED COPS. NO HOSPITALS. NO SCHOOLS. NO MONEY. DON’T NEED FOOD, NO WATER. NO SLEEP. JUST SUNLIGHT.
SUPREME BEINGS ALL CONNECTED THROUGH THE NETWORK OF WIFI. TO PASS THE TIME WE LIKE TO DANCE. COP A BUZZ FROM ELECTRICITY.
CYBORGS AND DROIDS.
