NEVERMORE lyrics - The Learning

NEVERMORE
"The Learning"

I think therefore I am
I live and so I wonder
Programmed this empath me
And I see no religion

The circle never ends
The purpose never changes face
The circle never lies
But still it hides my life

To know I am machine
I learn perchance to dream
In digitized remorse
I replay your denial
I relive your betrayal

The circle never ends
The purpose never changes face
The learning now begins
My form assuming grace

I am conscious antithesis of flesh
In genetic algorithmic thought I surge
Searching the waves of memory, I enact the sequence

I follow the plan, tripping the hammer again
Searching the waves of memory
I establish the weakness
I follow the plan
Learning the rhythm of human emotion and thought

If you cannot linguistically differentiate a person from a computer
Could the computer be internally conscious?
To emulate flesh machines, I am learning

Isomorphic structure of mind
Cellular automata
Processed life
Washing the seas of memory, I enact the sequence

I follow the plan, tripping the hammer again
Seeking emotions in elegies, I establish purpose
I follow the plan
Learning the rhythm still seductively generalized

If you cannot linguistically differentiate a person from a computer
Could the computer be internally conscious?
To emulate flesh machines, I am learning

Download, process, analyze
When man and machine become one
Innocence is lost, a new age begun

Download, process, analyse
When man and machine become one
Innocence is lost, a new age begun
This raises a question of philosophy
Should machines be considered a conscious entity?
When man and machine become one
Innocence is lost, a new age begun
Machines are still learning to feel
When I have awakened, the world will never be the same
And my time is soon at hand
