Unicorn Hole It seems WWG pulled out all the stops for Soul of the Machine II. The synths soar, the breakdowns crush, the screams are powerful, and the hooks keep me coming back. Although many (all?) of these tracks are from far back in WWG's catalog, they sound excellent here- even like a progression of his sound- thanks to the production and performance. I dig it! Favorite track: Ghosts.

Like bullets racing from a gun You found your way into my heart Falling away from the death atomic (Burning flame) Even though my body's gone My fighting spirit still lives on Don't let my death be the end Don't let me die in vain I'm inside you, everyone

Trapped in this nightmare, there's no one but me And a black nameless horror with eyes like the stars I stared on in awe and I lapsed into silence At a shimmering rainbow that turned into a sword How can I be the one to gather the stars To waste all this time? I am not a God, not even a boy By myself I'm nothing My life will end, dark matter shall consume me Born of the stars Beam me up Take me home

What can I say, this girl's a mess She's living in the past She still believes in love She still believes that good can win It's sad But I know true love's never true And it seems in the end All the good guys end up dead “Now there's nothing left My lovely angel Please awaken me From this nightmare” Tell me that story one more time Tell me that story one last time Tell me that you love me one more time Tell me that you love me one last time I am just a flower I am just a rose

“Wounds as deep as I remember Colder than it's been forever Only time will time will tell me If there's hope left for humanity Sword of Ages by my side My father's spirit still my guide To help me and to follow me To certain death or victory Ages hence I will be known The man who took the dark king's throne An threw the chains of slavery away Forever” Sing me that song please Tell me we'll be free One can only hope that day will come

Everything I've ever known was a sham I'm naught but a pawn in this infernal game This whole time, unbeknownst to me I've been a sheep, a corporate whore I've avenged those who came before me The civilians, I slayed them all They were better off burnt to a crisp Practice for their afterlife to come Glorious and generous as I am It's only befitting that I reign as a god Surrender now, or share your hometown's fate Glorious and generous as I am It's only befitting that I reign as a god Surrender now; your whole planet's betrayed you I will destroy everything that you hold dear And shed not a single tear I will haunt you in your sleep I'll never forgive you I promise this: I will never be a memory

Future Diary, tell me what you see I see a death, following you, ever chasing faster I see a monster, who calls herself your friend, your lover I see a horror, greater than what one man can muster I see a fate that can end in nothing but disaster Is this future still worth fighting for? Knowing that the dead shall all stay buried in the ground? I guess we just have to see

Come, Prince, awake, now is not the time for sleep "The years that I spent in a slumber, in a dream Were wasted How can I go on like this? In pieces? Cuz pieces are all I have left This is a price I shall gladly pay Just make me like the rose, just let me drift away Bring her back, bring her to me" He picked the flower and left Never to be seen again Mercy not what they expected to hear

Born beneath a jealous star A shattered hope for what was yours Haunted by the overbearing presence of the older one You're nothing, just a dark and jealous soul There's something that the ghosts want you to know “The first mistake was made when you were born into this house The next mistake was when you started looking for yourself Just shrinking in the shadow of your brother's growing spotlight They bore your brother first boy, so you're always second best” You can't fight the ghosts in your mind (Your brother's life is in your hands) In the end, all will fall into silence In the end, all will fall into disrepair In the end, all the ghosts in the world will have homes In your mind In your madness somewhere Look me in the eyes, won't you tell me you guys care? I was the unwanted one, the second best, the second son

I've loved a beauty queen, danced with my enemies Torn at my heart ‘til I no longer feel I've killed too many times to be forgiven These hands are stained with blood as red as these eyes Lying beneath me, both under the stars There's my knife in your back, there's this ache in my heart I still to forget but I just can't move on With your taste on my lips, with your eyes on the stars Do you recall hearing me say “all of my friends are dead?” I was the one to put blades in their chests Everyone I knew betrayed me so I murdered them You were the last and the worst, the one who hurt me most Cyclic, repeating, a constant never-ending stream All of my friends broke me down, I couldn't live with it So I decided 'I'm a being of solitude' Everything I had means nothing to me anyway Yet as I turn away my hands begin to shake But I pretend I don't feel as day starts to break Telling myself that I'm all that I need That my friends never felt anything to me anyway “How does it feel to be all by yourself? All these years that you've lived nothing's changed”
