about

The song explores the view that mankind can be seen as a virus on planet earth. It references both the hazards of organic human viral infection as well as that in cyber space, and how they relate (illustrated with the blending of a heart beat and modem connection in the intro).

lyrics

Virus
You are the virus > I am the virus

Biology > Maternal womb
Technology > Motherboard
Biology > Prenatal tomb
Technology > Digital law

Protection > Infection

(chorus)
Virus
You are the virus > I am the virus
The virus in us
Virus
You are the virus > I am the virus
The virus is us

Inner space > Conception
Human race > Infiltration
Cyberspace > Deception
Without a face > Contamination

Chemistry > Electricity
Protection > Infection

Hacked in, like a locust spawn
Politicians, bitch ‘til dawn
No hard currency, hard luck you’re born
Cell & data, ripped & torn

Coursing veins > a sullen fall
Fiber-optic strains > no borders, no walls

Pain reigns - squirm and crawl
Artificial brains, to rule it all

(chorus)

Digital electrodes > end users- & abusers
We sit and watch as it implodes, both beggars and the choosers
The dim & wise, the rich & poor – united in equal demise
Its domination ensured

Protection > Infection

(chorus)

With a dark blend of female-fronted Alternative / Industrial / Metal / Rock flavours, Terminatryx is an anomaly with an unexpected and invigorating sound.
