    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

Simple men – Not everyone wanted to live in a world dominated by machinery, where human relations became shallow, empty almost nonexistent. Some communities hid away focused on relations, feelings, family. On what it once meant to be human. Sometimes though, it was hard to cope with an irreversible loss. Especially when technology could reverse death itself and revive anyone from someone’s memories.

lyrics

Once
There was a Man
Once
Child of earth
Once
A woman's touch
Children shouts
A plain dream in grand

Once
No complex plots
Once
No gaining schemes
Once
A house full
With all one needs

Once...

To see them grow
To make them smile
Be strong enough
For each day different trials

To throw away
All pointless things
That weight our souls
To an endless loop of needs

We hid away
In a distant place
With other souls
That didn't want to be around

In this world
Filled with tech
That drove us so damn far
From being just alive

And now i'm falling down
Falling down
Falling down
Now I'm falling down
Falling down
Falling down

Once…

But natures claws
Made their claim
And took them all away
Destroying all I had

So i'm falling down
Falling down
Falling down
So i'm falling down
Falling down
Falling down

Once…

Now I stand
In clinics halls
So damn far away
From my principles of faith

Before a choice
That would make them live
Once again and again
Recreated from my dreams

But can we live
With a phantom limb
Knowing that it's fake
Even though it's real

I'm falling down
Falling down
Falling down
I'm falling down
Falling down
Falling down

I would like to
Follow faith

I would like to
Do what I believe in

But whispers from beyond
Still hold my throat
But whispers of my loved
Still want to get out

I would like to
Follow faith

I would like to
Do what I believe in

But the hour is late
My hands shiver
And scratching
From their graves
Tears me up
Into parts
Thrown
Far
Apart
