Here’s the lyrics to the 2011 demo:
Machina – Genova
1. A War On Heaven:
Into sanctuary, my ghost wanders these lonely shores, dancing by the light of roaring fires and timber floors, without hope without home, I live by the stars and the wind, pouring heart and soul into earth and stone to feel alive again. But for one last time I shall enchant the seas, I will open the sky and stir the breeze, I’ll be the cloud’s rolling thunder over white washed towns and grey cities. My ghost will cry out to a loveless world, a swan song of presage, heaven will collapse under guilty saints and wash me away.
Cutting at my wrist to feel, something that I know is real, the pain of loss and loneliness, the train, the razor that stole my innocence. Cancer spreading to her heart, a father’s guilt and life apart, suicide pact for an only son, his name he traded for a way out. “Goodbye my love, my world, my debt, the pain is one that I can’t forget. Breathing, bleeding, sinking burden, goodbye my son” I am orphaned. Slash my wrists to ribbons. In our search for clarity we found but broken trust, an open hand for the bastard son into a church of liars lust, our father who spits on us, send us death, beneath your empty sky of regret.
3. A Harlot’s Progress:
A harlot’s progress, devoid of love, raining nails into hearts from a snow white dove, rotten blood through rotting veins, killing pompous smiles in its wake. Water marks down cold blushed cheeks, disenchanting romantics beneath guilty sheets, she loved, she lied, to keep her pride, a sickly wolf amongst the bitter fucking sheep. Will I ever keep the pace, every reoccurring fault and mistake in their place, as they keep smiling while I step further back, wondering why I’m so unhappy with the things they lack.
Black as night, my wings take flight, carry me to morning light, where I can rest and soon forget as I watch distant stars ignite. You broke my heart. Harlot.
