In The Dark 02:00
Here... Here in the dark My head it spins..My spirit falls apart I feel... I feel this anger deep inside Were all the things we learned a bunch of lies? Here in the dark Here in the dark

Sacred Sons 06:42
Wake up! Its time to learn the truth Those answers that you seek Unclear ro all of you You think that we are all insane Our deeds have saved the Earth We'll make you see our way No more I won't believe your lies Those people that you hurt Why did they have to die How can you look me in the eyes? And tell me what you did You did for all mankind We are the miracle that saved the world you see We are the chosen ones...that people want to be Our minds are full of things, that you can only dream We are the Sacred Sons we rule with hope and fear How did it ever come to this These people follow you Nobody here resists Its like you took their will away I hope they find the strength I hope they will prevail I can't believe you are so blind They'll always follow us They'll always fall in line You've seen the happiness out there They'll never turn their backs We are their answered prayer

Late one night Before the break of dawn A group of men Searched from town to town They took away Families and friends Away from home, to go and face the end The screams of horror Filled the morning air Some people tried to fight Others stayed away When it was over Thousands disappeared I hid behind my home And covered up my ears 2 weeks had passed My family was gone I looked around to find a clue of where they'd gone So i went home I'd try another day But when i got there Men in masks took me away My screams of horror Filled the evening air Some people tried to fight Others ran away When it was over I woke inside this room And now i serve the Sons And await the doom Every night I dream of home The Back Streets of Paradise The road is paved with gold Every night I think of home The Back Streets of Paradise The Address of the damned Every night I dream of home The Back Streets of Paradise The road is paved with gold Every night I think of home The Back Streets of Paradise The Address of the damned Every night I dream of home The Back Streets of Paradise Welcome to the end
4.
Let me show you our great miracle The way we turned this world around With our satellites up in the sky We guide the thoughts of all mankind This truly is divine Lets purge these broken minds I'm so happy that you see the light No need for arguments, no need to fight And in the end you'll see that we were right The greater good meant human lives This truly is divine Lets purge these broken minds Now I see the world as it was meant to be Free of savagery and economic greed Now i see the world as it was meant to be No more holy wars or marching in the streets
5.
Get Away 09:41
I stay inside the room until the dead of night Then open up the door and run into the light My heart is racing and my sweat drops on the floor This has to end..i will not leave her here alone. I know she'd do the same for me She'd find a way to risk her life to get us free But is she really still the same? I'M going to take that chance..I'll leave it all to faith I hear some sounds behind a sliver painted door I take a look inside and see her on the floor She screams and runs...i chase her down the corridor Don't run away from me..I've come to take you home. Why is she so afraid of me? You have to trust me now..we need to disappear But then she turned and laughed at me I've learned about the truth..the way things need to be. Please! Don't turn away..we have to run and get away. Before its too late..we won't survive another day. Please! Don't turn away..we have to run and get away Before its too late..mankind deserves a better way. There is no place...to run There is no place...to hide When will you see...the light There is no need...to fight

Master Mind 11:11
I take her hand and start to run Down the corridors, away from everyone Soon we're caught against the walls Captured by the Sons, sent to the judgement hall So now you try and run away? We cannot let you go You know too much to leave I'll never stay here willingly After all the things I've heard , the things you said to me You have to kill me don't you see. But i know its not your way..you'll have to set me free So you think you have us figured out? There was much for you to learn But now your time is up. Now its time for you to take your place Here with those who never saw our way Never fear you'll always be revered In this place where time and dreams colide The Master Mind What is this truly awful place? How could you do this to the human race? They lie here sleeping, so alone. I hope they're dreaming that they're going home They are a truly special breed Their body's power all the gagits you see Without them Earth would burn and die A product of your past...a past you cannot hide. We've seen enough we're leaving here I think you've lost your mind, the whole world lives in fear Fear of the choices that you make Putting you in charge was this worlds big mistake No No..Your never leaving here This is the end my friend, its time you disappear Goodbye my friends..its time for you to go If only you had seen things our way Goodbye my friends..its time to join the hive No time to waste..no time for long goodbyes. I wont go quietly..you've made a big mistake The world will soon revolt and put you in your place I won't go quietly..I'll fight your great machines This ain't the end my friend..others know were here!

In this book we continue the adventures of Commander Stevenson and his crew, who returned to Earth 1000 years after their forefathers left.

ALBUM REVIEW from Somethingelse Reviews
Written by Preston Frazier

It seems like an eternity since the first chapter of Projekt Gemineye’s In the Year 3073 debuted. Book II moves forward, essentially, where we left off.

“Sacred Sons” provided the driving bass and double-drum patterns I’ve come to know and love from Projekt Gemineye. This time, Projekt mastermind Mark Anthony K brought in his Dark Monarch co-conspirator Joe Bailey for a vocal contrast. In the Year 3073: Book II is kicked off in fine form, after the brief opening track, “In the Dark.”

“The Back Streets of Paradise” is up next, with its touches of classic analog keyboard sounds and guitar-chorus effects. Never one to shy away from employing a wide range of guitar textures, Mark Anthony K creates a sonic palette so intriguing that you want the song to stretch on twice its length. The vocals are more restrained than the last song, befitting the dark turn in the story. David Donley provides an emotional presence on the bass, propelling the music forward with a foreboding presence. The end guitar and keyboarding has a hint of Pink Floyd’s Animals era. Given the turn in this story, that’s not too much of a stretch.

“The Great Lie” marks the return of Joe Bailey on co-lead vocals and bass. The osculating keyboards contrast with the acoustic piano sets up a similar contrast with Bailey’s and K’s stories. The voice of the state is powerful and driving, represented by Bailey’s hypnotic vocal and aggressively melodic bass playing.

With its frenzied tom-tom and bass drum onslaught, “Getaway” is bleak and angst-filled. Mark Anthony K’s vocals, over a layer of Geoff Downes-like keyboards, sets an apocalyptic scene that the hero realizes he must be released from. Bailey steps in on the bridge to state the obvious: There’s no way out. This epic song works on many different levels with an equally potent lyrical and musical punch.

The almost Rush-like musical structures “Mastermind” – which includes some of K’s finest acoustic work on a Projekt Gemineye album – is a perfect penultimate song to the album. “The Answered Prayer” closes out In the Year 3073 Book II by bringing in yet another musical heavyweight: Yes’ Billy Sherwood contributes a furious bass track which compliments the continued story of In The Year 3073. While Sherwood has yet to make his proper debut as bassist on a Yes studio album, his playing here is a nice look at what we may hear.

“The Answered Prayer” doesn’t give me a neat ending to the saga. It’s a fittingly aggressive instrumental, but too short at a little over 3 minutes. That leaves the listener begging for the coda of this epic. Luckily, we get just that in early 2021. In the meantime, Projekt Gemineye’s In The Year 3073: Book II is available now via Bandcamp.
