Songs of Survivor (F) Track 01

Composition: Sean Ashmore
Vocals: Michael Boe
Lyrics: Suzanne Treister
10:18 mins


Remainders of the space of teleported dreams
The mystical object of interstellar communication
Machine telepathy returning to Earth
On a purple mountain of data mist

Five million years from the memory
Of violet blue extinct algorithms
Lost in the shadows of a parallel red universe
Five million simultaneous directions in time
In motion between quantum turquoise moon-dust
The ultimate survival algorithm

An extraterrestrial library
Of human learning
A lost azure apocalypse
Where intergalactic death flowers bloom
On a data free field of forever expanding
Data Lust
The machine makes the world again
Pagan robotics
A new star-dust
