    The world didn’t end in screams. There were no grand lights, no warnings, no panic. There wasn’t even any pain, the only common language amongst all living things. The final shroud fell on Earth in silence. In darkness.

    Humanity’s last flirt with nature’s laws ended in tragedy. A simple miscalculation, which gave birth to the most destructive force in the universe – The Black Hole. A raging god that consumed everything that was known. Sometimes I wonder, if someone somewhere from afar witnessed that eerie spectacle. If some other, distant civilization observed our demise in awe of this phenomenon.

    Our story doesn’t end here though. A collective consciousness – Post Sapiens cult, which transferred itself into a digital form, has foreseen that human luck will finally end. Soon before the cataclysm struck, a ship was shot into the void of space, with an unaware but conscious copy of the universe, which keeps on roaming the black emptiness. Live 2.0 goes on, but this time, there is someone to guide them.

    Listen to its stories.

about

Olympus mons – What didn’t change in (at least) some humans, was the need to break limits. To discover, to do something that no one has done before. A highly sponsored expedition, streamed live for the whole Earth to see, set out to seize the summit of Olympus mons, one of the highest mountains in the Solar system. In the last stretch, only one of them remained, relentlessly pursuing his dream. When he came to the great chasm, he jumped trying to reach the other side. He didn’t make it. What was left from him the sponsors took. Hooked him up into machinery.

lyrics

I hear my breath
Heart pounding
Cold sweat
And silence around me

The sun is rising
Slowly lying gaze
On Mars cloudy fields
Olympus is awake

Heart pounding
Silence around me

No one here besides me
Everyone has left
They told me I am blindead
To come with them go back

Thoughts are rushing through me
Was it a good call
But I throw them all together
There's no going home

The chasm spreads before me
A siren with my name
And the only one way past it
Is a giant leap of faith

I gather all my courage
As a storm begins to rage
I feel Mars eyes upon me
A silent god that waits

And before I even know it
I run towards the edge
So before I even know it
My feet are in the air

And before I even know it
I run towards the edge
So before I even know it
My feet are in the air

His feet are in the air
His feet are in the air
His feet are in the air
His feet are in the air

A caught wakes me
Heart pounding
Cold sweat
Silence all around me

While on my back
I still hear
Olympus peaks
Voice enchanting

I Force my flesh
To move again
Through no hope
And searing pain

There is something off
I feel it
There is something strange
I sense it
Olympus still in place
But something stands against it

But journey calls
And summit waits
I’ll still be first
To caress its head
