Area 11 - Processor -Official Lyric Video-

Processor is the 5th song on the album Modern Synthesis and has been expected for a while due to being listed track ideas. The song was written primarily by Sparkles*.

Lyrics

I took a chance to fly
Crossfire filled your skies
I want no role in your altercation
Call me alumni

Your release; my deformity
Structures collapsing around me
Running sealed in the seventh circle
With you, eternally

I feel panic arise as rhetoric voices are feeding back again
Blocking out vitriolic accusations: Was I listening?

[Chorus]
Because I want to be better on the inside
I want to be better on the outside
I want to be better on the inside

I want to be, to be

I fall asleep, in the vestige I once called my home
Monolyth; paralysed standing stone
I pray for you, abide with the hopeless
Your war desecrates magnum opus

The pious haunting now at ground zero
Ringed blockades around a tableau
Regretting the choice but I can't turn away
Hearing the voice; no sense in what they say

Built by the grace of a god
Destroyed by the pantheon's rage

The modern synthesis compels me, to start again

[Chorus]
And I want to be better on the inside
I want to be better on the outside
I want to be better on the inside
I want to be better, better

I devour it all, every colour and every shape
Scream my message, etching wisdom on the landscape
Scarring a path; my apraxia through
I will have my way, I told you, I told you, I told you

Built by the grace of a god
Destroyed by the pantheon's rage
The modern synthesis compels me, to start again
The solution sequestered in the myth

As I dispersonalise I taste a real life
And far from the pacifist you believe I exemplify
I am the fury, I am hypocrisy
I can sing higher, soaring disbelief
The day I take control
The day you'll believe in me

Lines fade out, I illuminate
The path back home, the path I'll show you

As lines fade out, I illuminate
And lead the way back home, the path that you'll follow
Lines fade out, I illuminate
The path back home, the path that I'll show you
As lines fade out, I illuminate
And lead the way back home, the path that you'll follow
As lines fade out, I will illuminate
The path back home, where you'll wait for me, wait for me
Lines they fade out and I illuminate
The path back home, where you'll wait for me, wait for me

Lines fade out but I illuminate
When lines fade out

Area 11 - Processor

On June 2, 2017, an alternate version of Processor was released with a new video. The new song is much shorter, cutting out some transitional segments and replacing everything from "As I dispersonalise..." to the end with another stanza of of "I want to be better on the inside".

The new lyric video is interesting, showing some colored geometric shapes growing and spreading lines like circuits. When the "I fall asleep" line happens, different shots of them are shown where they are breaking. When the "I want to be better on the inside" line returns, they once again grow, possibly a bit more frantically. They are shown to begin to break again when the song goes to "I devour it all". It also appears at this point that the outer darkness is spreading inwards into the shapes, covering and spreading lines of their own.

At the end of the video, a single black line has reached the center of a circle, forming its own small circle there. It then grows new lines and destroys the white circle from the inside out.

Trivia

  • The song's intro was designed to provide a contrast to the end of 'Versus'.
  • Sparkles* wrote the lyrics, and Kogie then edited them slightly.
  • It has been stated that the 'better on the inside/outside' theme reflects the album as a whole.
  • The 'lines fade out' section mirrored in 'Panacea and the Prelogue' was an idea Sparkles* wished to include from the beginning.
  • The song is about dissolving the internal boundaries which separate people.
  • Sparkles describes it as being 'invocative of Underline'.
  • He and Kogie consider it to close the first half of the album.
