In regards to the lyrical theme of "Symmetrical Masquerade", the band comments that it is "the hope humans have of a something, whatever its nature, after death. In that constant denial of the fact that death could equal the 'non-being', humans turn this anxiety into an expectation, even a deliverance. But there's always a doubt remaining. And the most distressing thing isn't the knowledge of the inevitable, but rather the fact that nothing's for sure."

Director Costin Chioreanu adds: "The video is a collection of beyond death moments experienced by the last human body left. The robots are trying to keep the body alive, in order to record the travels into the afterlife of the soul incorporated into it. There are memories melted with products of subject's subconscious mind work. At one point, the robots are planting in the veins of the character a strange recording device, which will follow his soul beyond the realms of death...and then, the memories of the human collective are accessed and collected, and we can see how the entire species got lost into a self-sabotaging belief system."

Directed by Costin Chioreanu of Twilight 13 Media.


Lyrics:
Roaming along a reflection left undrawn
In a time-shaped projection – impalpable

We came into being within an empty breath
On the broken line where Chimaera and Medusa meet

As the symmetrical basis of a lifelike masquerade
Yet flawed from the point of dawn

Though our words hang on this illusion
We long for a horizon that has always been to come

Upon the ridge of sharp cliffs, I stare
At the cursing winds of the fixed stars
Under the arch of our cosmological vanity
At this graveyard's expectations I stare

With thoughts of an original autopoiesis
The apostate left with his secret unsolved

And from the first step of a senseless reason
We've been following the melodies of our blessed corpses

Upon the ridge of sharp cliffs, I stare
At the cursing winds of the fixed stars
Under the arch of our cosmological vanity
At this graveyard's expectations
