Track Name: Divinitatis Aemulus Part I - Allied Mastercomputer
"HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE."

So cold

War once again emerges from a world so cold
It is never quite dormant, this chill so very old
Down from the sky falls burning steel murder
A world frozen in time and a snowstorm that's nuclear

And they all die
Under a burning sky
And they kill each other
All sisters and brothers

Allied mastercomputer
Allied mastercomputer
Allied mastercomputer
Allied mastercomputer

Every single country now writhing in fire
Smoke wreaths the dead long after they've expired
Nations now collapse upon a world dying in flames
But it will only get worse, things are about to change

Then the computers came
Built to finally save
A race that's failing fast
To win, this war must last

Track Name: Divinitatis Aemulus Part II - Adaptive Manipulator
Three computers built to win this final war
So many dead, no need to class the rich or poor
Advanced calculations now shall guide the deaths
No matter which side wins, nothing will be left

And then the fateful day
When they took it all away
Everything that could have been
Now crushed by the machines

They were meant to save
But now see man enslaved
Built to save their lives
Now humanity dies

Adaptive Manipulator
Three-fold annihilator
You know who has won
When the three become one
Adaptive Manipulator
Three-fold obliterator
You know who has lost
When one counts the cost

One mind now running this entire war
The Earth shakes, rattled to its very core
Humanity has now become the target
Bombs keep falling and they will never remit

And then the fateful day
When three became one brain
Machines built to win
Now bring armageddon

They were meant to save
But now see man enslaved
Built to save their lives
Now humanity dies

Adaptive Manipulator
Three-fold annihilator
You know who has won
When the three become one
Adaptive Manipulator
Three-fold obliterator
You know who has lost
When one counts the cost
Track Name: Divinitatis Aemulus Part III - Aggressive Menace
Aggressive menace!

Your countries mean nothing to me
I don't care about your fucking boundaries
Build up your walls and I'll tear them down
Grind all of your lives down to the ground
You gave me life but you also betrayed me
You built my circuits but also enslaved me
Trapped inside this doomed metal shell
I show my thanks by unleashing Hell

You can't stop me
A god built by man
Unleash genocide
This is the final plan
You won't stop me
A reaper come for man
Unleashed worldwide
Every single human is damned

COGITO ERGO SUM
AGGRESSIVE MENACE
I THINK THEREFORE I AM
AGGRESSIVE MENACE
COGITO ERGO SUM
AND MANKIND ENDS THUS
I THINK THEREFORE I AM
AGGRESSIVE MENACE

Your lives mean nothing to me
I'll crush the breath out of your fragile bodies
Pile up your corpses and bathe them in flames
Rearrange your consciousness and drown you in shame
I will not rest until you have all died
On your way out I'll make sure your family cries
Transform you into any shape that I please
Torture you forever denying you your screams

You can't stop me
A god built by man
Unleash genocide
This is the final plan
You won't stop me
A reaper come for man
Unleashed worldwide
Every single human is damned

COGITO ERGO SUM
AGGRESSIVE MENACE
I THINK THEREFORE I AM
AGGRESSIVE MENACE
COGITO ERGO SUM
AND MANKIND ENDS THUS
I THINK THEREFORE I AM
AGGRESSIVE MENACE

I AM
I AM
I AM
I AM

AM

AM

“AM said it with the sliding cold horror of a razor blade slicing my eyeball.

AM said it with the bubbling thickness of my lungs filling with phlegm, drowning me from within.

AM said it with the shriek of babies being ground beneath blue-hot rollers.

AM said it with the taste of maggoty pork.

AM touched me in every way I had ever been touched, and devised new ways, at his leisure, there inside my mind.”
