Area 11 - Nebula -Official Lyric Video-

Nebula is the 10th song on the album Modern Synthesis. The music was written by Sparkles*, and the lyrics by Kogie.

Cassandra

Nebula Cassandra Isolation

Nebula Cassandra Isolation

During several parts of the song, a feminine synthesized voice can be faintly heard singing alongside Sparkles*. The voice is either intentional, likely Cassandra, or potentially just an unintentional side effect of some of the audio processing. The lyrics where this occurs are in bold below.

A pitch-isolated version of the song makes it easier to hear this voice.

Lyrics

This is my suffering, stuttering the words
Spyglasses salivate sound; bites to the heart
Forsake my opiate, my counterweight and part
As all I can see is you

Hey there you lost boy, just look at what they've done to you
They've poisoned the well of your mind but you'll make it through

Speak free with the faction
As we build it up with our hands
So to ease fear and inaction
We own the land, we own the land

This is my suffering, stuttering the words
Spyglasses salivate sound; bites to the heart
Forsake my opiate, my counterweight and part
As all I can see is you

Voltaic reaction, I'm falling to the call of you
To love just an action, we overplay and overdo

Draw strength from our unified energy
We see through your crystalline phantasy
But now, there's no one beside me
They've fallen behind

Trains howl gaining traction
Pull our comrades clear from the sands
With our minds free of distraction
We own the land, we own the land

This is my suffering, stuttering the words
Spyglasses salivate sound; bites to the heart
Forsake my opiate, my counterweight and part
As all I can see is you

This is my suffering, stuttering the words
Spyglasses salivate sound; bites to the heart
Forsake my opiate, my counterweight and part
As all I can see is you
