Track Name: Arrival
Earth smolders - No remnant remains
To unknown terminus the beacon’s signal travels
Hovering within the exosphere - Corvettes gleam
As weeks advance, convoys gather

Two envoys that hang inanimate begin to drift
Carriers descend in close formation
Before the assembling mass, beings emerge

Inhabitants from the local systems - Two species
Survivors of the first wave - The fourth destroyed
Centuries afloat, its mission now complete
The signal let loose

The bursts journeys
Years past the borders into the transcend

Lying in wait within the galactic halo
The Entity - Formless One

Distributed intelligence
All forms will become one
Track Name: Entity
Conceived in untold aeons past
Consolidation of life to its necessary conclusion
Fragments of self
Spread forth to the void

Drifted within the local sector
Detecting the existence of local forms of life
Collided into the planet of what was once the fourth race
Ravaged and lifeless, a sacrifice for what remains

Particles of the fragment undetected
Left to drift
The beacon is lit
Now fulfilled of purpose
Track Name: Uplift
Monoliths delivered - Technological ascension
Uplift - Joined together in opposition
Traveling through the vastness with calculated purpose
Centuries to pass towards defensive formulation

Spread throughout the systems
To support the rapid industrialization

Exponential expansion
A growing swarm

Generations fed through the machine
Seeing neither beginning nor the end

Far bound sentries detect the threat
Abruptly blink out of existence
A race now bred for the inevitable conflict spreads forth
Track Name: Mobilization
Fortified positions set
Battle stations of alternated fleets

Defensive stations shifted
Concentric lines light years spaced
Obstructing the path to its core

Lying in wait in the final days
Unknowing the extent
Of the formless death that approaches

A stillness in the void
An outwardly lifeless structure surges forth
The edges begin to ripple and shift, splitting and reforming
Culmination of centuries - The approach of the controlling form
Track Name: Outpost
The forward lines broken, pushed back system by system
Patterns randomized to counter absorbed intelligence
Effective tactics negated
The living flesh regenerates through absorption of defeated flesh

Accumulating in the advance
The form divides and spreads

A lone ship thought lost docks at Station Alkaid
Lone signal burst before communications lost

Flawless replication of ship and crew
Knowledge assimilated
Burst forth permeating every crevice
An entire fleet lost

New directive
Separation is death
Track Name: Dominion
Methodically moving world to world, system by system
Its ichor flows
Encapsulating entire worlds
Stripping all trace of organic matter

Forces in retreat - Floundering defenses
Fleets rapidly pushed back
Meticulous advance - Leaving no trace
Mere months till the home planets reached

Desperate research to find any weakness
A sign of hope in study of the fragments first arrival

Reverse engineer the field
All resources devoted to the cause
Pushing back for precious days
The grip tightens

Research completed - The massive construct assembled
A plan put into motion - Failure is extinction
All remaining forces coalesce - A convoy formed
Transporting into the void between stars
Track Name: Timechasm
The staging ground set
Defensive perimeter protects machine
The entire armada activate broadcast beacons

Corvette bombing runs lure the fractured blight
Masses along the path reintegrate, recognizing the gathered force

The first splinters reach the forward line
Mass sacrifice to gain moments needed
The line must be held
Until the full mass is within reach

No possibility of retreat
In the final moments critical mass achieved
The reversed field activates expanding light years
Captured in the void - A prison of time

Billions lost - Trapped within
The ceaselessly advancing hunger to inevitably be released
