How long does it take to determine a purpose?
And discover a sense of meaning
To such a meaningless existence
Ultimately powerless in a scheme of insanity

How far must we search to locate the architects?
That caused us to fall
Consider this as the final chance
Take back our lives, rebuild our pride

Please understand we are not alone
In the quest for greater meaning
Expose inner workings of intellect
Regain logic reason

The machine continues on its path to self-destruction
Humanity is doomed unless the war machine is stopped

Impending failure
Absolute control is not an option
Break free from the demonic grasp
Of an everlasting kingdom of elite
We don’t know
They don’t need us to survive
Without us the plan comes alive
Denied one last time

Exploiting one simple decision
There must be more to this picture
Paint our desires, interpret the future
Escape the invisible hand dragging us further from success

Assembled from the scrap-heap of several prolific Australian metal bands, The Schoenberg Automaton are a mouthful and an earful of mind-bending technical death metal.
