Racing to the new century
Facing the self made machine
Losing our directive’s prime
Choosing our new command line

Withstand the organic compulsion of human nature
Withstand the atomic decay of the human flesh

Live too long with fragile mind
Lose all your sense with natural electric skin
Shifts in states of hostility
Plaguing this space, uninterrupted devouring all decency

Eject the cerebral and refit
Reject old systemic components
Enthrall in new made technology
Install update and execute

Withstand the emotional mix of human chemistry
Withstand the outdated confusions of the human mind

Lay your hopes in nothing
Pay the price with life
With the mindset dawning
That will waste our minds

It is calculated that the rate to what we're fated
Is when mankind turns into machine and dies
No longer moving forward with a will that was the strongest
All it’s potency degraded to device

The consciousness altered by flashes of numbers
A push of a button and you are erased
Quick calculation and the realization
The halt you have made by this dead end evasion

Place effort in nothing
Warning low power
Dreams no longer matter
Drift away in space

It’s anticipated that the state of all the hatred
Is what’s caused the human point of view to fight
All the courage needed till stupidity is defeated
And the future that is freed will be so bright

The difference in values of man and machine is diverse
Incorporate both to enhance their effects
These systems in parallel development
The continuation of the human race

After the release of three demo's and an album, Prickrott received the opportunity to expand into a full band, and rehearsals began in preparation of our first live assaults and new album: Dust of Obscure Devastation.
