lyrics

(Verse)
I watch as they move
they blur like a flame
leaving a trail
painted in gray
an ominous tone
the zero will never change

As speculation
I attest to the fad
our human conditions
becoming our masks
hopelessly waiting for
a purpose to append

(Chorus)
Well you can strip all of your layers down
replace them with all your permissions
tear away and gate the sound
of your entire existence
redefine your image path
rewrite and paste a new instance
when you're ready for display
the colors revert to gray

(Verse)
I watch from a distance
a separate plain
cold in perception
yet I'm warm in this state
as they grow
to better the machine

Building it up
the flesh and bone
a new messiah
to rewrite the code
when the creature
was strong enough to speak
he said

(Chorus)
Well you can strip all of your layers down
replace them with all your permissions
tear away and gate the sound
of your entire existence
redefine your image path
rewrite and paste a new instance
when you're ready for display
the colors revert to gray

(Bridge)
Next in line
step aside
you will find
Your number is #808080

Next in line
step aside
you will find
your number is #808080

(Chorus)
Well you can strip all of your layers down
replace them with all your permissions
tear away and gate the sound
of your entire existence
redefine your image path
rewrite and paste a new instance
when you're ready for display
the colors revert to gray
