about

"Hrs:Min:Sec" is where XP8 really start.
Teaming up with Sebastian Komor of Icon Of Coil's fame (as well as a dozen other bands) to take good care of all the production and sound design duties, this is futurepop at its very best.

Several songs off this album were going to become genre's classics, like "Muv Your Dolly" or "Cuttin'n'Drinkin".
Five years later in 2010, the song "The God Particle" was chosen for the soundtrack of the film-documentary "La Particella Di Dio", and a video was shot for the song as well.

Track Name: Muv Your Dolly
She’s my little dolly, she does as I ask
Waiting for my word, whilst the hours pass
I make my Dolly move, I nudge her into line
Pushing her along, she gives me all her time

I command and order, to my beck and call
I decide just how high and then I let her fall
But my Dolly wants something I can’t give her
She wants life, she wants to feel

Suffer and bleed, laugh and cry
If I give her life she’ll have to die.
Suffer and bleed, laugh and cry
If I give her life she’ll have to die.

So I muv my Dolly, give her my commands
Gently force her existence, she’s Putty in my hands
Emotions that she can’t feel and never understand
Gently force her existence, she’s Putty in my hands

Suffer and bleed, laugh and cry
If I give her life she’ll have to die.
Suffer and bleed, laugh and cry
If I give her life she’ll have to die.
Track Name: Bleed And Shout
Taking time to carve a line
Pushing down into your world
Trying hard to make it mine
Close your eyes my little girl

Extracting souls through your spine
My intrusion, penetrating
Sucking out all I can find
Nothing left, desecrating

Gut wrench, evil stench.
Tie her down, on to the bench.
I can make you bleed and shout
I can stop you reaching out

I can stop you reaching out
Tying down your shaking hand
I can make you bleed and shout
How much pain can you withstand?

I'm not clean, so obscene.
Untouched and feeling mean
Drowning fast 'n dropping out.
Plucking wings from pretty things

Gut wrench, evil stench.
Tie her down, on to the bench.
I can make you bleed and shout
I can stop you reaching out.
Track Name: Not There
You didn't have to let me down.
In the end you weren't around.
All I needed: another time.
But someone else drew the line.

I had to try to take control.
But all the waiting took its toll.
No one watches from above.
So I held the wires to feel the love.

I didn't want to let you care,
and you, my dear, weren't even there...

You let me feel the power
Energy from your flower
High for hour after hour
From your temple to my tower

I didn't want to let you care,
and you, my dear, weren't even there...
Track Name: Purity
She was just sixteen, somewhere he’d never been.
Passion hides in strange places, sometimes where it's not so clean.
He was on his knees, she was there to please.
He can't stop it now, they have to satisfy their needs.

He feels all she needs , she knows how he feeds
Caution to the wind, who will be the one who bleeds?
His world feels remorse, their fate takes its course
Destined to fall apart, when all around are whores.

You know that life can be unkind
Your needs can be oh so blind
She hides behind her purity
She has to face reality
Life can be so unkind
Your needs can be oh so blind
There's only one thing you can do
So take her now before they do.

He's lost his charm and grace, he takes all he can take
He must make a choice: a rock or a hard place?
She's blind to all his fears, he hurts to see her tears
And so succumbs to lust, his sighs are all she hears.

You know that life can be unkind
Your needs can be oh so blind
She hides behind her purity
She has to face reality
Life can be so unkind
Your needs can be oh so blind
There's only one thing you can do
So take her now before they do.
Track Name: Dreamt Of Blue
Those who follow, live on their knees,
Those who lead will surely fall.
So put your should to the wheel
And feel your back against the wall.

So feel the rain and walk this city
Human waste, feel its pity
I dreamt of blue in darkened skies
I gnored the truth and closed my eyes.

They said they'd help you and they lied
Spies in the wires, their disguise
Red saliva down my spine
I smiled so hard I lost my mind.

This is the end. Message sent.
The news is leaking from the tv set
No celebration, salvation
Self inflicted isolation.

The life I made was to unwind
A melting wave drives me blind
Someone else has drawn the line
All I need is another time.

I chose honour and dreamt of blue
Just one duty till I'm through
Cry havoc and make me move
Shed blood, the time is due.

This is the end. Message sent.
The news is leaking from the tv set
No celebration, salvation
Self inflicted isolation.
Track Name: Escape Velocity
We are trapped, in a memory.
And so they swallow, every part of me.
We just ask, if they can only see.
Just how tight, they are holding me.

All we feel, is a hole.
Something's missing from our soul.
All their games take their toll.
We are trapped, the truth is told.

We closed our eyes, but we see you.
We pushed so hard, but can't get through.
We ran so fast we nearly flew
But there is nothing that we can do.

We can't reach, escape velocity
It's not just kinetic energy
They can't see the fucking gravity
Of why we can't reach escape velocity.

We're a white hole
The start and end of space.
We miss our guiding star.
As we fall from grace.

We can't reach, escape velocity
It's not just kinetic energy
They can't see the fucking gravity
Of why we can't reach escape velocity.
Track Name: Flatline
Life support is falling
Ground control isn't calling
Time is passing slowing down
Oxygen is running out.

Sirens sound a warning
So clear this morning
Batteries about to die
So blue, the sky.

Flying high, no way down
The stars my crown
My life, machine
My glory obscene.

All I see is open sky
All I need is why
Diagnosis deception
It screams rejection.

My lights, they flicker
Descent is quicker
Destiny is coming down
No chance to turn around.

Controls, no response
See me just once
White light in my face
Impact my embrace.

Flashing light.

Heart beat getting faster
Cold fear is my master
Cold sweat kills my time
All my readings flatline.
Track Name: Cuttin'n'Drinkin
Slice and dice my dear.
It's twice as nice with fear.
You like being cut
And he is so near.

He likes drinking
Who cares what they're thinking?
You like giving
And now you're sinking.

Everyone's a loser
In the game of blood
Take all you can
Oh it tastes so good.

Cutting and drinking
Bleeding and sinking
Time for a game of blood
A cut can feel so good.
Cutting and drinking
Bleeding and sinking
Time for a game of blood
A cut can feel so good.

Try to imagine it,
Pain, forever
Pain, forever

You (Pain forever).

You
Like giving.

You (Pain)
Like giving (Forever).

You
Like giving
Blood.

Forever.
Track Name: Lies
You lift your whip to kill our will
You smash us sore and we crush our souls
You pierce our flesh and yet we curse ourselves
You torture us to tears
But it's our thoughts we fear.

Twist that spike into my arm
Then pour your rage onto my heart
Kill the oblivious part of me, show me all the hate you feel
Only you into your eyes
Your heart so full of shit and lies.

You're poisoning our minds
With all your vicious lies.

We used to have a past
But it got lost in noise
Our future cannot last
Cos you have drowned our voice
Sensorial deprivation
A culture trapped in lies
Our penance's well deserved
Cos we all decided
To close our eyes!

You're poisoning our minds
With all your vicious lies.

I try to overcome my fear
But nothing anymore is real
If the truths i need are lies
How can I hold on to life?
Track Name: Seed
Within each seed there is a flower
Within each death a new power
A new life a new beginning
When you lose I'm winning

Lost and found, no admission
Closeness means submission
You had reasons, I had dreams.
We live with demons, or so it seems.

Within each seed there is a flower
Within each death a new power
A new life a new beginning
When you lose I'm winning.

Lost and found violent mind
Remote control drives you blind
Be my chaos overdrive
Technology, is a sacrifice.

Within each seed there is a flower
Within each death a new power
A new life a new beginning
When you lose I'm winning.

Within each death big or small
Someone gives and I take it all
So submit you know it’s right
Sexuality pay the price
A driven storm kills your genes
No resurrection so it seems
Be my chaos overdrive
Technology, sacrifice.
Track Name: Our Being
We are men of the millennium
We lie and we cheat
We can’t find our way
So we use who we meet.

There’s nothing we can’t do
Nothing we can’t take
So we’ll eat you
Steal what we can’t make.

Pollute what is pure
Rape all we find
Taking from the poor
Stealing from the blind.

Time has made us cruel
We feel so strong
Hatred is our fuel
Our reason is so wrong.

Nothing we can’t do
No one we can’t hate
We can’t turn back
It’s just too late.

Reaching for stars
Crippled by fear
Falling to Earth
Our time is near.
