Gravitation Control System

Axel Maddin : He said that man is led by death, underhand obsession. From sunrise to sunset, it fills his life, oppression. We read all about it and have gone through the complex frame. From Lewis Carroll to the Holy Bible, conclusion remains the same. Man reads, man sings, man laughs, man cries just to forget he dies. He builds his life to bury the memory of an end he denies. That’s why I signed. Hailey : I read your work on epilepsy and demonic beliefs. Axel Maddin : This was a study well badly explored. Hailey : Your knowledge on this subject makes you essential for me. Axel Maddin : You must be kidding me, tell me what I’m here for ? Hailey : You’ll be the translator of a bio-mechanic machine. Axel Maddin : I don’t understand, tell me what I ignore ? Hailey : Gravitation Control System and Ylan is the key. Axel Maddin : It’s why this epileptic boy is made for ? Axel Maddin : I don’t want to strive towards an understanding state of mind. But that’s a fact, this system works, an evolution for mankind. Galileo, Da Vinci… They overthroned the unescapable. Enable man to rise beyond his soul, the salvation for us all. Axel Maddin : It seems like living cells under this translucent skin. Genesis lives with vital electronic gasoline. External energy is perfectly destroying the core Of the earth gravitation from the lands to the distant shores. Computer banks regulate sunlight with satellites. Delaying death, reducing pain, a taste of Eden’s delight. That’s why I signed. Hailey : This room is where they mentally speak every day. Axel Maddin : This place looks like a burial site. Hailey : Ylan locates the opponents, those on which the system don’t play. Axel Maddin : What happens then ? And what about the civil rights ? Hailey : We take care of the informations you’ll convey. Axel Maddin : Data collect, you want me to spy ? Hailey : His neo-father senses the crisis he doesn’t betray. Axel Maddin : And all you from me it’s making him write ? Axel Maddin : I don’t want to strive towards an understanding state of mind. But that’s a fact, this system works, an evolution for mankind. Galileo, Da Vinci… They overthroned the unescapable. Enable man to rise beyond his soul, the salvation for us all.

Axel Maddin : I can feel the energy of an intense activity. All dressed in white, they work without a word. They live in this anthill, a flesh made colony. Speak to no-one, saving unknowing, it’s better to ignore. Walking among them, straight to my working cell. Rejoining Ylan and his own living shell. Scraping his hand, he seems annoyed, looking intently at the void A man’s body, the mind of a boy. Someone is watching over me. Dissect my notes, I disagree. They have a seizure on his drawings. Questioning me, they’ll get nothing. I can feel that Genesis only sees a threat in me. All her skin dries, compulsive growing old. They speak in their own way, getting used to my body. Circles, crosses, squares… there are stories to be told. I cannot really say if I could like this place I dwell. But I don’t find myself in this prefab air I smell. Above this robotized sphere which subsides on the ground. Genesis lives, but still she casts around. Someone is watching over me. Dissect my notes, I disagree. They have a seizure on his drawings. Questioning me, they’ll get nothing. Ylan : Amidst the mists and coldest frosts, With stoutest wrists and loudest boasts, He thrusts his fists against the posts, And still insists he sees the ghosts.

Axel Maddin : Feel so guilty, the shame on me. What have I done to humanity ? I give the names, against the tide, I yield to the facts, that maybe he’s right… Ylan stopped writing, look at me and says That Hailey is listening but giving only lies. On the outside, they love their lives, The fear of death has left their eyes. But I still have to help him find. Those who won’t let go of their minds. He tells us to believe, Be proud of what we live, Writing history’s score, I cannot take anymore. Hermann : That’s how it all began, absolute Phobia, Seeing in every man his fearful dementia My father I believed, I kept his hopes alive, Thus trying to relieve the pain just to survive. Created this machine, suspending gravitation, Now we just watch the scene, a new life’s illusion. Genesis mechanical Data-processing part. All based on Ylan’s scrawls giving the seeking start. Axel Maddin : He points a finger on Genesis. It’s crystal clear I can’t resist. I’m not insane, I’m not alone, Mentally drained deep in my bones. She’s not dead enough to die, Not bad enough to lie, Hollow enough to hide, She speaks inside. On the outside, they love their lives, The fear of death has left their eyes. But I still have to help him find. Those who won’t let go of their minds. He tells us to believe, Be proud of what we live, Writing history’s score, I cannot take anymore.

Axel Maddin : I hear her voice, she’s in my mind, she swallows me and spits me out. I cannot hear and I am blind, she’s picturing their lives in her shout. Fairwall street, there is a road. A bio H-16 drives the elder for their last stroll. Extermination process of the symbolic of growing old. Clearing the system, they are shot and have their bodies dissolved. It’s 3 o’clock in the morning, I see a minute of her life, In front of me, stands a girl, she was a mother and wife. But she can’t remember, all have been erased. She forgot the love she gave. It’s in her meal, filled with chemical substance. A drug-addict, look at the shaking of her hands! She only needs to play and food is her only game. She doesn’t have to sleep and each day looks like the same. I hear her voice, she’s in my mind, she swallows me and spits me out. I cannot run, I cannot hide. I look through the window, here it never rains. They bypassed the seasons, a spring locked up in chains. Breaking the cycles, avoid the changes. Replace the things and just turn the pages. No more breeding purpose but voluntary mothers. Bring up the children in hidden secret centres. They’re learning how to live, to live for the moment. Drowning their origins in a perpetual present.

Carla/Genesis : My name is Carla, and I’m so exhausted. I know they will come to take me back again. A normal life for me is all I want for me, They took too much from me, much more than I could give. To stop this daily torture, I pray. I thought I could take the pain away. But I still believe in one thing… This song my father used to sing. Carla’s father : Red-haired Carla on my knees, Her laugh sounds like a flight of bees. Pearls of wind as sun is bright, Red-haired angels will be lights. Carla/Genesis : They came as the Saviour, I believed this miracle. Serving science is a cutting betrayal. They’re not helping me, but abusing me. They took too much from me, much more than I could give. To stop this daily torture, I pray. I thought I could take the pain away. But I still believe in one thing… This song my father used to sing. Carla’s father : Red-haired Carla on my knees, Her laugh sounds like a flight of bees. Pearls of wind as sun is bright, Red-haired angels will be lights. Axel Maddin : She tells me they killed the ones I love, Just to break me a little more, Shaping me to forget why, So I don’t have the will to cry. Then I lay down upon the ground Release my soul and make no sound I hear these words in her last sigh In what I’ll live, I’ll have to die…

Axel Maddin : I’ve been a section of this system from the start, For weeks my work is tearing me apart. I can’t believe what I’ve done, They hide the truth and made me numb. I want to vanish and cry, I want to banish their lies, I want to relish my past one last time. Ylan please, tell me what did you see ? Did you hear something that could help me ? Tell me you know how we can stop. Blast all away from the base to the top. I want to vanish and cry, I want to banish their lies, I want to relish my past one last time. Axel’s father : I don’t want to teach you mercy, I won’t show you another way to lie, Keep pretending with a true sincerity, Forsake them and they will die. Axel Maddin : He is torn again by sorrow and fear, It seems I broke our perfect sphere. I lost his trust and confidence, My anger looked him in his silence. I want to vanish and cry, I want to banish their lies, I want to relish my past one last time. Axel’s father : I don’t want to teach you mercy, I won’t show you another way to lie, Keep pretending with a true sincerity, Forsake them and they will die.

Axel Maddin : Now that Hailey’s passed away, I’m left here on my own. I will have to find a way, Or get lost in the unknown. Maybe if I implore her To free my soul from fear, She will answer my prayer, And take me away from here In this time of need, I am the world keeper, Grow to be the leader, I became the ant queen. It will destroy the world if I stop the project, Leading to a disaster known as the slingshot effect. The energetic forces at stake would increase their activity by two hundred and the Earth might implode. If it doesn’t implode, it risks at best to see ninety percent of its emerged land disappear by violent divergence and convergence of tectonic plates. It will destroy the world if I stop the project, Leading to a disaster known as the slingshot effect. In this time of need, I am the world keeper, Grow to be the leader, I became the ant queen. In this time of need, I am the world keeper, Grow to be the leader, I became the ant queen. It will destroy the world if I stop the project, Leading to a disaster known as the slingshot effect.
