Track Name: Human Traits
HUMAN TRAITS (A. C. Rogalsky)

Human traits, am I of your creation?
A conversation,
Between myself.

Glorified by a civilization,
Ruled by causation,
And consequence.

Don’t want to live in doubt about it,
I want to know.

Tell me, what are my human traits?
Tell me what defines my human race?
Tell me do I have a choice to make?
When you tell me to accept my human fate.

Do our traits control us?
Liquid engineer our lives,
Quantify the numbers,
Numbers hidden in our minds.

Human traits, am I of your creation?
Assimilation,
Gave me my name.

Well I belong to a new generation,
But my computations,
Are just the same.

Don’t want to live in doubt about it,
I want to know.

Tell me what are my human traits?
Tell me who can win this human race?
Tell me do I have a choice to make?
When you tell me to accept my human fate.

Do our traits control us?
Liquid engineer our lives,
Quantify the numbers,
And all the ones we left behind.
Track Name: Temptation River
TEMPTATION RIVER (A. C. Rogalsky)

By the river temptation there's a house on the other side,
And there's nothing 'round there that money can't buy.

On the bank of the river there's a headstone for everyone,
Some names unengraved, some only begun.

Don't go down to that cold dark water,
For the river temptation betrays.
Reflections are clouding the water now,
So that you can't see the bottom these days.

When the ship of success ran aground on that rocky shore,
All the headstones had seen it, repeated before.

And survivors escaped to that house on the other side,
To watch over the graveyard of souls left behind.

Don't go down to that cold dark water,
For the river temptation betrays.
Reflections are clouding the water now,
So that you can't see the bottom these days.

It's gonna take you away,
Oh that river temptation.
Track Name: Out Of Here
OUT OF HERE (A. C. Rogalsky)

Out of here,
Is a place I fear,
It is here,
I appear,
I am here.

Out of here,
Is a life still unclear,
Keep me near,
For it is here,
I disappear.

Out of here.
Track Name: Undefined
UNDEFINED (A. C. Rogalsky)

Undefine me,
Let me turn and run.
Set me free,
When the morning comes.

Clear my memory,
'Cause I'll need room to spare.
The enemy,
Lives in there.

Undefine me,
Rectify me.

Redesign me,
From the ground up.
Rescue me,
From what I've become.

Realign me,
Between your galaxies.
Let me breathe,
New purity.

Undefine me,
Rectify me.

Undefined is how you found me,
Undefined is how you'll leave me,
Undefined is how you found me,
So undefine, now undefine me.
Track Name: Just The Same
JUST THE SAME (A. C. Rogalsky)

Another war was lost today,
And things look worse than yesterday,
Seems to me we’ve lost our way,
Now everyone has to pay.

We can’t tell where we’re going now,
All we know is where we’ve been,
When we fall down the mountainside,
Is this what we’re meant to be?

We can’t go on forever,
Something’s gotta change,
One day we'll realize,
That we are just the same.

Of all the lies we tell ourselves,
One will be the death of us,
If moneys all that rules this world,
Tell me who can you trust?

And when our fight is finally over,
And when the final battles done,
When all the world lies sick and dying,
What have we really won?

We can’t go on forever,
Something’s gotta change,
One day we'll realize,
That we are just the same.

And after all this time,
We can still make it right,
Cause even in the darkness,
You can still see the light.

We can’t go on forever,
Something’s gotta change,
One day we'll realize,
That we are just the same.
