Darkology – Michael Harris wrote all the lyrics, with the goal right from the start being mostly (but not all) fantasy & sci-fi. Here are the lyrical meanings of each song:
VIOLENT VERTIGO - Space fighter conquers enemies for his home, Hydrus 7.
I BLEED – The pain and anguish suffered from losing a loved one.
DARK ENERGY – A strange marriage of the invisible energy that must exist because of Einstein’s “cosmological constant” and the invisible energy that exists as a result of loud music.
NOBOT - A futuristic mechanical master race evolves and threatens humanity… In the distant future, a series of man made “humanoid” robots were created for the purpose of executing high risk and covert missions for the US military. Several years into the project, it blew up in our face, as our metallic ‘friends”, succumbed to the one emotion we should have not programmed into them : the human EGO, and formed a “silent conspiracy” to overtake their creators. Using the scientific knowledge and “human intuition” we had programmed into them, they confiscated even our molecular and DNA structure and took it into the laboratory to perform mutations far beyond human knowledge in a successful quest to become more human themselves. Hence, they became NOBOTS: the new master race.
EYES OF ARGUS - Hypo-schizophrenic and multiple personality-ridden man, Argus, stays musically insane for almost 6 minutes.
AURA OF XHAD - Fantasy ghost battalion raids towns and disappears, but wizard Xhad perishes them all with a spell.
ALONE - The illusion of internal fear, mind tricks, fear of the dark, etc.
REVITALIZE - Crawl out of your box and revitalize your life, dude!
TRANCE OF THE GORGONSis based on the mythological story of the 3 Gorgonian sisters - chiefly Medusa, who could turn a person to stone with her stare. So what if she stared in the mirror and turned herself to stone?!
