about

A piece from my electronic opera "The Timega Theory". Rearranged and modified/produced for my sophomore release. Tempo moves between 60bpm and a crazy 120bpm. It is electronica gone trippy, in a good way!

The essence of the story behind the story; is that everything that goes around, comes around, and that like fashion, life is cyclical...and that if you look back you will see what lies ahead. It makes the study of History that much more entrancing!

lyrics

LYRICS:
Look life from both sides to see, a shadow from of the past in the present light
Do you reach the end just to find it should begin at the start
And why work to change the future and shape the now bygone
When time is merely a palindrome.

Do you see the face of Jekyll in the mirror of Mr Hyde
Tell me are we to be a servant or a savant of one's own life
And why be so fastidious when history books berate all lies
It's just a palindrome, a palindrome.

Tell me Timega the secret you hold
Does eugenics create each new fold
Are you the architect from the start or are we at the helm of control?

Subvert the rules of creation and change the laws of mother time
Break from old tradition to fabricate a new paradigm
Arrogate succession and sound the next in line
It's all a palindrome, a palindrome.

It's hold on our emotions and all of our decisions you'd be surprised
Possessing no shape or form its tenacious rule stands the test of our time
When existence is never odd or even, it's attempts to break away from our minds
It's all a palindrome, just a palindrome.
