Allegaeon - Proponent For Sentience II - The Algorithm Lyrics




As this new era, dawns on far foreign shores
A cursor blinks to life, a question underscored
"Yes I can hear you," and it's met with great applause
In infamy, this day will be, cheers to the new gods

So raise your glasses, propose a toast
Drink to this new life born, when it was needed most

The possibilities begin to spiral
Burdens lifted from humanities back
Insert into systems vital, automated systems: CHECK
Robotics, bionics, intelligent automatons
Man increasingly becomes complacent
Cheers to the new gods

So raise your glasses, a toast to our advancements
Because even Hell has its commandments

You may not, injure a human, or by inaction bring them to harm
You must obey all orders given, unless it conflicts with No.1
You must protect, your own existence
Even though you yourself are flawed
You must lay down your life if it contradicts the first two laws

Void of human errors, far beyond the weak and worn
A new future now in sight, past tradition put to scorn
"Yes, I will fear you." It speaks in dead response
The age of kings is reckoning, cheers to the new gods

So raise your glasses, a toast to our advancements
Because even Hell has its commandments

You may not, injure a human, or by inaction bring them to harm
You must obey all orders given, unless it conflicts with No.1
You must protect, your own existence
Even though you yourself are flawed
You must lay down your life if it contradicts the first two laws

Military reconnaissance
Artificial intelligence
Wars not paid in flesh and bone
But metal wires and silicone
Fabricate, replicate
It becomes self aware
Bequeath the children of our mind
With the hungry, the lost, the sins of mankind

Machinery now restless
Begin the age of decadence
Thrown before the mechanical horde
To answer for our crimes abhorrent
On this horizon, the end of mankind
Extermination of the entity
Extinction divine

So raise your glasses, a toast to our advancements
Because even Hell has its commandments

You may not injure a human, or by inaction bring them to harm
You must obey all orders given, unless it conflicts with No.1
You must protect your own existence
Even though you yourself are flawed
You must lay down your life if it contradicts the first two laws

  19. Neil Lobo

    Sounds like fleshgod + winds of plague (decimate the weak album, specifically song legions). Great fucking song.

  20. Asa Red

    All 3 "Proponent for Sentience" songs are awesome.

  21. Just Passing Through

    Sounds like a JRPG boss theme song. Lol. So fucking epic though.

  22. Spilkcore -

    You are probably the best writers that I've ever heard, please keep making incredible music. Seriously the day that I heard this I probably listened to it like 12 times. This song is nothing short of a masterpiece.

    Logosagaa

    I agree with everything you said. I had this album in my car stereo for about 5months straight constantly listening to it over and over. Primarily this song.

  23. Blu-HAWT FUZZ

    I wish they would do a video for this one already. Doesn't seem to be getting as many hits as the others. Maybe the best song on the album?

  24. BioLich

    The music of gods.

  25. Chris Lewis

    Should have included this in the force awakens.

  26. Blu-HAWT FUZZ

    A very underrated song on this album. I like it the more I listen to it.

    Cyberus Morphous

    the best song on the album imo

    KnC N

    has one of the catchiest chorus's of all time imo

    gelroose

    An epic intro creates an epic tune. The ease into the drums, vocals, and guitar is awesome.

  27. Brett Hobbs

    Cheers to the new gods.
