First single off the upcoming album 'Humanoid' from Babirusa.

Spotify/Apple Music:



Residing within a system that feels empty
A cog in the great machine, turning endlessly
Unable to recognise yourself, slowly fading to a dormant state
The thoughts and feelings in your brain no longer hold permanence or a proper name
Devoid of direction, in need of a chance to escape
So you dive into an endless time frame where what's left no longer decays

Convinced you're living in a world where "humanity" is the dominant race
A cog in the great machine, turning endlessly
Programmed every form to be blind; desensitised all your minds
And blurred the separative lines

Outside; your identity is emaciated
Inside; you will finally be emancipated
From living as a shadow restricted by shame
Yearning to be one with the fake divine
A corrupted mind with no line to guide

Dead inside; stealing a heart to hide behind
Finding no solace from the chaos of humankind
Lingering within the gripping darkness that forever stays inside the mind

Now become desolation
One with the emptiness and lack of purpose
Become what you want
For you are not who you are
What's left of your humanity; now more like insanity
Is due to disappear as you are willingly scarred
A means for life immortal
New connections made within

Feeling the fibres pulse within your skin
Draining the very essence of your soul into the machine
