lyrics

In another space lies the same face
built with distinct minds
Born as brothers, built as equals
They were made to compliment each other
Now at odds, Their duel is set,
and in their cosmic struggle
One android will fall, the other
must stand

War between brothers
the field deep space
Duty and reason
violence and hate
Golden eyes seek
strange new worlds
Endless potential
A vision to unfold
When the entity from far away
Arrived to feast and burn
and desolate
One survived, the other must wait

Awakening made possible by
secret machinations
And a model through which
Concept is made flesh
or at least
A version of it
began as a fevered dream
lies burning with the possibility
Such a state creates enabling the maker
the father and the creator to see his
dream made real

Brothers of metal
Minds artificial
Quest to attain
the promises made
Brothers of metal
Bodies invincible
rage could replace
the courage of grace
Brothers of metal
Power inexhaustible
Rise Sons ov Soong
Brothers of metal
fate unstable
a ceaseless war
of Datalore

For the elder a path of
peaceful exploration
for the younger a lust for
total devastation
This fact is unknown
to the humble being
whose curiosity
led to the demon’s reactivation
From this act of mercy
came great dismay
when the younger summoned
the crystalline entity

(Solo: K. Losinske)
(Solo: S. Delorey)

(Chorus)

Together they struggled
for some peace of mind
Overwhelmed with emotion
logically blind
Kings of machines
no father to guide
dismantled and rebuilt
Death and life, throughout time
Now both are gone
one revered as heroic
the other a devil a lesson
in brave experimentation

Brothers of metal
Minds artificial
Quest to attain
the promises made
Brothers of metal
Bodies invincible
rage could replace
the courage of grace
Brothers of metal
Power inexhaustible
Rise Sons ov Soong
Brothers of metal
fate unstable
a ceaseless war
of Datalore
