about

For each album, Terminatryx records a song in one of their home languages, Afrikaans. This one is translated as "Machine".
It is a sci-fi flight of fantasy along the lines of The Terminator, and a bit of a comment on man's technological development, but also how it can lead to his own demise.

lyrics

TERMINATRYX - MASJIEN (Afrikaans) - see English below

(Chorus)
Die Masjien marsjeer
Deur die land
Veslind, verskeur
Verwoes, verbrand
 
Gebore uit gemak
Gemaak om ons te dien
Die mensdom het verswak
Opstand van Masjien
 
Meganiese revolusie
Metaal verwoes die vlees
Jou drome net illusie
Jou wêreld nou net vrees

(Chorus)
 
Die ratte draai nou sonder end
Te laat om dit te keer
Die aarde permanent geskend
Masjien nou in beheer
 
Die slaaf is nou die meester
Die skepper ‘n dienaar
Die sonlig word nou duister
Devolusie openbaar
 
(Chorus)
Die Masjien marsjeer…


Translated lyrics: MACHINE

The Machine marches
Across the land
Devours, Tears
Destroys, Burns

Born from comfort
Built to serve us
Mankind has weakened
Rise of the Machine!

Mechanical revolution
Metal destroys the flesh
Your dreams mere illusion
Your world is now just Fear

The Machine marches
Across the land
Devours, Tears
Destroys, Burns

The gears turn without end
Too late to make it cease
The earth permanently scarred
Machine now in charge

The slave is now the master
The creator the servant
The sunlight turns to darkness
Devolution revelation

The Machine marches
Across the land
Devours, Tears
Destroys, Burns
The Machine marches
