Track Name: Parallel Universe
Parallel Universe

I'm suspended in Animation
I'm drifting in the City of Space
I'm moving backwards inside a vacuum
The Hallucinations become my Reality
The Shapes & Colors of another Life
Blind my Eyes with déjà vu
Distorted Mirrors reflect two Worlds
I can see myself in another Place
I'm looking through the window of my old House
I can see my Mother giving Birth to me
I'm crying - I'm in my Mother's arms
I can see myself on the Other side
I can feel myself on the Other Side
I can touch myself on the Other Side
But I'm still standing, way over Here
And yet I see myself way over There

I'm living in a Parallel Universe
I'm walking through the Embryonic Door
There is something that I should mention
It's my sensational Great Intention
To take you over to the Other Side
Get ready for the Ultimate Ride
I'm living in a Parallel Universe
Where everything I do, I know I did before
C'mon jump - jump to the Other Side...

Track Name: A Robot's Dream
A Robot’s Dream

The Paranoia of My Reality
Asks the question, "What is real?"
Is my Life just an Hallucination
Or a Magician's Trick - a Mad Creation
I Dream of becoming Human
To take off the Mask of Science
I'm told that I will never Die
My Perception of Truth is just a Lie
My Implanted Memory has a Soul
Indistinguishable from everyone
I can laugh and cry - I'm quite delirious
From the sum of my total Experience
Projected surfaces with a million Images
Digital movements on an Invisible File
My Precognition can see no end
In my Predestination - I'll be my own Friend
In a Mirror World where Life unfolds
There's another Universe that can be seen
I can be in two places at the same Time
Creating Hexagrams in my own Design
Multi-fragments on the Fringe
Puts me on the Edge of Nowhere
Technology struggles to the very end
As I drift into Space I watch Light bend

The Evolution - The Transformation
The Paranoia - The Schizophrenia
The Possibility of what is not
The Delusion - A Reality - or just a Dream
I'm Dreaming at last!
Inside another Dream of another Dream
A Robot's Dream from some Implanted Memory
I even have a Soul
I can Touch...I can Feel
I even look real
It seems I'm very confused
Perhaps I'll never know
If I am real
Or is this just a Robot's Dream
I don't want to know

In my Robot's Dream - I can be real
I have a Soul
I can Touch & Feel
In my Robot's Dream - I can be real
I have a Soul
I can Touch & Feel
In my Robot's Dream - I can be real
I have a Soul
I can Touch & Feel
In my Robot's Dream - I can be real
I have a Soul
I can Touch & Feel

Track Name: Hologram Girl
Hologram Girl

Let me tell you 'bout my Hologram Girl
She puts me in a whirl
She's my 3D Doll
She's got Radio Waves
She's Hotter than Fire
She's a real live wire
She does the Body Electric
She's got that Infrared Smile
She's so incredible to touch
That's why I love her so much

She's my Hologram Girl
She can split the Atoms
With every single Kiss
She's got Radioactive Lips

My Hologram Girl...

Track Name: Pychodelica

I don't feel attached to my body
Time has stopped
I have no idea where I am
Nightmares keep me wide awake
Everything is Kaleidoscoping upon itself
I'm on a trip to Hell
I'm having a psychotic breakdown
My mind is spinning
My arms are tangled in a knot
My body is turned inside out
The ceiling is melting
The floor is shaking
I feel the Patterns of the Shapes
The Shapes of Colors in the Space
I can taste the Sound of Light
Everything is amplified
Radio signals from another world
Shatter all my thoughts
Radar reception in my Brain
Could this be a Magician's Trick

My Brain is cracked
My tongue is split
My body is dissolving
I can slip inside a Needle's Eye
I'm 90 billion Light Years away
My sense of Humor is in your line of Fire
I'm the forgotten Invisible Man
I drink the Black Nectar of the Gods
Diabolical shadows jump off the wall
I'm just a sub-particle of Dust
Lost in a vast Alien Constellation
Drifting in & out of Sleep Paralysis
Is this a Mad Magician's Trick?

Track Name: Android Delusion
Android Delusion

I ask you, am I Human?
Or am I an Android?
I'm trapped in Confusion
My Life is a Fusion
Of Flesh & Machine
My Soul isn't clean
My Mind is obscene
It's a Manic Intrusion
I've got an Android Delusion...

Motor Cortex with Neutron signals
Electrodes surface from my Brain
Telekinetics drive me insane
My thoughts will control all things
Objects are flying without any wings
Electroid Computer chips flow through my arm
They're taking me away to the Android Farm
Cyberkinetics without wires
Fuels the Human & fans the Fires
It takes away all Human desires
It's just a Manic Deadly Intrusion
It's a really bad Android Delusion
So what if I can Live Forever
It's no Fun without a Life Endeavor
It's just a Manic Deadly Intrusion
I've got a bad Android Delusion...

Track Name: The Uncreated
The Uncreated

The Uncreated hides deep inside a Vacuum
In Timeless Space, inside a Reverse Hole
It will arrive in a huge explosion of negative & positive particles
And vaporize in your Mind
All things known to humanity will dissolve into the Great & Magnificent Uncreated!

The shrouded curtain is ripped apart
It reveals the secret of everything
Invisible Dimensions trap gravity
A Star dies in Space & a Hole in Space appears
The fabric of Space has no boundaries
Like a puddle of Rainbows in the hot Sun
All things will disappear
It becomes expansion in reverse of Space, Matter & Time
It appears in the Relativity of Time itself
The moment of Creation wraps itself around the Magnificent
Reverse Quantum Mechanics & triggers the Great & Unstoppable
The Uncreated is Born!
And it will never Die!

Track Name: ElectroMagnetic Playground
ElectroMagnetic Playground

The Universe drips inside my Brain
Jet Propulsion lifts my spirits up
Kaleidoscopic faces melt like wax
I've got my Anti-Matter Generator
It provides the fuel that makes me fly
Gamma Rays try to eat up my matter
Genetic Monsters cannot mutate my cells
Nano Web Bots spark their poison
Autonominous Games play their tricks
Exo-Skeletons with Super Powers
Display their Hydrolic Brains
My Death Ray Gun protects my world
I cannot be destroyed! - I'm Indestructible!
I cannot be destroyed! - I'm Indestructible!
In my ElectroMagnetic Playground
I'm hanging out with Nikola Tesla
We're moving Planets with our Super Sonic Sound
There is no Gravity to hold us down
We are Invisible in our own Dimension
We move in Wormholes throughout the Universe
We travel faster than the Speed of Light
Albert Einstein is our guide
We don't need wires in our Infinite Space
We don't even need the Human Race!

After the break, VON LMO has a conversation about Reverse Quantum Physics with the great Nikola Tesla (conversation not available)

Track Name: Two Faces Beware
Two Faces Beware

When the Planet Venus passes through the Sun
The Future will be told
Mutilations of the Soul
Brings new life to behold

Electroditius - Radion
With Smoke & Mirrors from beyond
As I look into the Mirror
I can see - two of me

Oblivious - as I fade into a puff of Smoke
Silent & Deadly
I become a ripple of Distortion
In a Kaleidoscopic Maze
A Train pulls into
The Red Haze
In my Crystal Mirror...I gaze

I dream of the two faces
Two faces beware
One of you is me
The other trapped in Fear
Soaked in Isolation
Afraid of Revelation
Two faces beware

Track Name: Alien Playstation
Alien PlayStation

Imagine that your whole Life has been a lie
Imagine that the entire Universe was just a figment
Of your Imagination in some Unknown Dimension
Imagine that you are merely a Virtual character
In an Alien PlaystStation Game
Imagine that you are just a Computer Chip
Manipulated by a Joystick and a Button
Your thought patterns are Artificial
They're controlled by Telekinetic Energy
Twisting & sliding inside some advanced Alien Brain
You appear to have a Sixth Sense
As your simulated thoughts merge into
A Collective Consciousness to create Virtual Realtime Data
Which deviates a Virtual Global Consciousness
In one push of the Joystick
Quantum Mechanics go astray
Order becomes Chaos
Let the Games begin!

You're trapped in an Alien PlayStation
You're just a Simulation
A figment of some Dark Imagination
A mere Virtual Creation

There's no Moon - No sky - No Sun
They press a button and your Day is done
You can protest if you dare
Remember they can make you disappear

Advanced Rays of Kaleidoscopic Lasers
Ripple inside Alien Computer Chips
Moving backwards in Space & Time from
The Future creating Images of an Artificial World
Of characters, places and things
A Giant Computer screen
Somewhere beyond Nowhere
Holds the entire Universe Prisoner

Push the Joystick
Press the Buttons
They make you Fly
They make you Die
Somewhere in a Cardboard Sky

Track Name: Turn Off The Gravity
Turn Off The Gravity

Turn off the Gravity
Let yourself go
Turn off the Gravity
It's Time for your Big Show
Turn off the Gravity
Let yourself go

Turn off the Gravity
You can fly away
Turn off the Gravity
You will never fall
Turn off the Gravity
You can lick the sky

Turn off the Gravity
Watch yourself fly
Turn off the Gravity
You can lick the sky
Turn off the Gravity
Let yourself go

Turn off the Gravity
Nothing can hold you down
Turn off the Gravity
Lift up off the ground
Turn off the Gravity
Set yourself Free
Let yourself go

Track Name: Conscious Machine
Conscious Machine

His Titanium Soul is Eternal
He’s a Magician without a Trick
He can inflict a bit of a Human touch
He’s half Human & half Machine
Half Human & Half Machine
He’s Half Human & half Machine
He’s a Spectacle in Mass Confusion
He’s an Android Delusion
It’s like a Robot Intrusion
He can walk, he can talk, he can think
He’s just a Conscious Machine
He’s a Conscious Machine
He’s a Conscious Machine

Track Name: Beyond Human
Beyond Human

This is not Science Fiction!
There's no place for Darwin here!
There's no Species of Reproduction
Just Condemnation with Inescapable Fate
The Unnatural Selection of Flesh & Machine
It's the Next Evolution - it's not a Dream
Euphoria! Ecstasy! Emotionless! Utopia!
No more Passion for Love & Hate!
Way beyond the Paranormal!
Far above the Supernatural!
The Dark Nature of Humanity has surpassed the Human Soul
Beyond the Realm of Fantasy
Below the Flames of Hell
Light & Sound dissolve into a million tiny Crystals
Test Tubes bubble over in a Centrifuge
Filled with the Alchemy of Illusion
Cosmic Explosions expand into a new form - of Life
Mind Bending Drugs Transform your Flesh into Machine
Circuits push your Imagination to the
Endpoint of Eternity
They are the Reflectors
You are the Absorbers
They are the Reflectors
You are the Absorbers
The Prism of your Palette tastes no more
The new Doctrine creates a Portal -
Way beyond the Beyond
You become The Perceiver - The Receiver - The Deceiver!
Now the Turmoil begins!!!

Look into the Eyes of Illumination
Follow the Afterglow and bask in the Light
Order rubs elbows with Chaos
Whether it's Good or Evil - it's all Insane!

You ask yourself
It's the Children of the Future
Flesh & Blood Machines
They may never Die!
It's beyond your wildest Dreams...
Way beyond Humanity
Way beyond Human

Reach out...touch
The Face of are now an
Extension of some Alien Machine...
Reach out...Touch the Beyond...

Track Name: Dark Rift
Dark Rift

Play this track Backwards in order to hear the words!

The Eyes of the Eternal Future dangle on the Immortal tentacles above her Majestic Head. Her Cosmic Face speaks of a horrifying date in Human Time. This date is December 21, 2012 - a date written in Stone, thousands of years ago by an Extraterrestrial Secret Society and approved by the Mayan Indians, just to name a few. It is called the Dark Rift. It was written from calculation of the Stars that on this day an endless force of Energy will cause the Sun to disappear for a total of 40 years and introduce Chaos & Destruction like the torment of Hell to revolving images on Earth. No more will your Heart sing with Passion & Delight. Instead, you will scream with Terror & Fright. The Sun, in never-ending Eclipse will create an eternal Eclipse and a prefect Alignment of Planets. The Galactic Alignment of the Sun with the Galaxy will line up with perfect precision and prepare to attack the Earth with the wrath of Insanity, Fire and the treachery of a Satan like Circus, filled with Evil Surprises that will allow polarities to shift, causing continents to move and even disappear. A new Ice Age will put all living things in Freeze Frame Mode. The final Eclipse of the Sun will blacken the skies for 40 years. Impending Doom & Unlimitless Diabolical Power hang over the Earth's Head, even now as you hear these words. All your desires will burn away as the Earth shrinks and your body drips away, getting smaller and smaller. Centered in the Great Majestic Ball of Endless Holograms is the Great & Magnificent Cosmic Rock Band - AVANT DUEL! They hold the Seeds of Enlightenment inside the Sounds of their Eternal Enlightenment inside the Sounds of their Eternal Music. The Embryonic Seeds of New Life for the New World - their Eternal Music is the LAST SOUND THE EARTH WILL HEAR before the Dark Rift enters with the Fury of a thousand Hells. As all of this Chaos prevails, the Sound of AVANT DUEL will become the Destroyer of the Dark Rift and the Savior of the New World. Open your Hearts and let the Sounds enter your Souls.
It is your Destiny!
