François Peyre-Pradat Beautiful tracks with melodies going from sweet piano to aggressives guitars mixed with dark electro. The lyrics are incredibly written and describe the human tortured by his mechanical creation, both in the realization of this inevitable defeat, but also in the rejection of what he has become. Favorite track: Breathing The Machine.

Chaotika 05:01
I was born to annihilate As a rebel I was placed on the earth to terminate Mankind, mere fools I hold in my hand To spread Chaotika throughout this useless land As I rain terror down upon you It soaks deep in to your skin You cut yourself open to remove the fear within My blood you’re bleeding The earth crumbles all around you Your ashes turn you to mud The light is now fading And the dark is your new sun Running blindly guns fully loaded in my hand I need only one bullet to kill all man For the human race, time is running out Unleashing the fury as I cross your name out The reaper is death And he is among you There is no point in trying to escape Appreciate all that is boiling inside you And learn to love the hate There was no one who could stop me No one to betray me I was in command I had control over man Not even God above could save them I wouldn’t allow Damien to take them All the helpless souls known as mankind They were all mine
This incestuous disease It rages through me [I’m Breathing the Machine] Adrenaline now fuel injected I’m losing faith in my humanity [I’m Breathing the Machine] Performing my own surgery I take a look deep within me This machine slowly infecting me Breathing it in, transforming what can I see Blood black and cold [Is this the way it’ll be?] Thoughts turned to code [I’m losing what I call me] Injecting the venom I let the death flow This symbiotic connection [It’s the only way you’ll grow] Their virus is calling to my poison Fusing together, morphing into a commotion My soul is empty, my soul is helpless Can no one hear me calling out in distress? The warmth of everything that I once called me Is bleeding out of me They begin to fill it back in New thoughts kill the old ones within All morality, what I hold dear to me Assimilated into a digital mastery Conformed to the perfect enemy I can’t escape this creation I can’t stop this transformation The air escaping from my chest cavity The wires filling every single part of me A pulse from a once beating heart Replaced with the pulse of an electrical start Charged with the programs of destruction This machine and I are now one Fused together to take on the new world My nightmares have only just begun
Welcome to my nightmare Where the days look like night A desolate desert without hope I place beyond the light Welcome to your nightmare We the creatures of the night Eternity has bound us to A place beyond the light Your misery, my pleasure Your pain, my wants my needs Your sorrow, my passion Your torment, destroying your beliefs Put your mortal soul to rest As I rip your heart out from your chest Into the light, your fate’s with me You take part in this unforgiving journey Enter my dream where no one hears the screams From the souls of the damned Enter my dream, the innocent we reap For damned I already am My misery, your pleasure My pain, your wants your needs My sorrow is your passion My torment, destroying my beliefs Put our mortal souls to rest As you rip my heart from my chest Into the night our souls are free We take part in this unforgiving journey
Judas 05:09
I gave you everything I gave you my all Surrendered my whole self to you You promised me with eternal life You let your lies consume me ‘Cause in the end all you did was betray me Tie me up and tear me down Be my Judas and sell me out Leave me to rot alone and forgotten But I won’t be the one you crucify I won’t die This thing, this gift you gave to me Fading away all that I believed Distorting what used to be The visions we once dreamed You’ve infected me You painted this picture So beautifully Weaving your words of fantasy Into a web of misery Breaking into every nerve Making me realize what I deserve But no matter how hard you try I won’t die!
All you can see is what they want you to believe All you can feel is what they tell you is real They cast their judgment down like orders spoken from the crown An endless loop of insanity Take my hand and be free I’m not like anything else you’ve learned I’ll give you the freedom you desire The one you’ve yearned Open your eyes How would you like to see Break away from your chains of lies A world where you can be free Hold on to this chance for life How would you like to see Peace, knowledge, away from pain Through the eyes of the insane Sanity through the eyes of the insane Comprised of lies is how you live your life Wouldn’t it be better if you could just break free I know you’re sick of the same old story You turn to me seeking something more to believe Sanity through the eyes of the insane Break free
Just when I thought it was over It pulls me back in It’s always a never ending battle This battle within My trigger finger is ready But what’s wrong with me? How can I expect to save you If I can’t save me I can’t save me Annihilation: Start Annihilation: Go My mind‘s going out of control I cry out for help But no words come out My inner self Always stopping me It’s the ignition that lights the spark When my positive turns to dark I’m sorry sweetheart I’ve lost control [Don’t worry, I can save you] I can’t save me [Hush now, close your eyes] I can’t save me [Trust me, you have to try] I can’t save me [Don’t worry, just kill me] I can’t save me
Resolution 05:34
I went back on everything I’ve said I let the darkness consume the light Leaving you for dead I can’t stand this monster I’ve become Everything we’ve built together, now destruction Dear God, what have I done? Will there ever be a resolution? I should have told you from the start Instead of dragging you on Playing with your heart And now I stare into your beautiful eyes Watching the life in you slowly die Dear God, what have I done? Will there ever be a resolution? Why couldn’t I stop and think (I can’t go back) Think straight for a moment (I’ve got no further to fall) Why couldn’t I just stop and believe (This wasn’t what I wanted) Believe what I felt was honest (I’m sorry) Why couldn’t I stop and wait (I can’t go back) Wait for it all to pull through (I’ve got no further to fall) Why couldn’t I stop and see (This wasn’t what I wanted) The answer was always you (I’m sorry)
No one left with their own personality Cookie cutter copies of the digital reality This is the new synthetic generation we live in It’s time for you to give in Go Who will sing blessed be When the only one left standing is me While the rest of humanity stares blindly Into their damned destiny Crippled by our creations We can only hope for salvation Sing hallelujah and rejoice For your new God is born Plug in your souls to him It’s time to be reborn Download your new body Pre-programmed by your democracy We as a race brought this onto ourselves Rejoice! Embrace the new normality Hand over your flesh We’ll take care of the rest [Is this the price we pay?] [I will not die this way] Humans end is near But do not fear Your death will bring new life The pain will disappear There’s nothing you can do to stop it Don’t try to fight it [Is this the price we pay?] [I will not die this way] It’s over now, give in Feel the new life within [Is this the price we pay?] [I will not die this way]
Controlling your mind Synthetic thoughts forming The perfect formula for mental genocide Don’t try to hide You can’t escape the truth You’ve already lost This is your Mechanical Holocaust Fueled by power Fueled by greed I am all that you need Your utopia, the source The omega When in reality I’m the perfect enemy Heart pumps black tar Like a menacing fuel Distorting the inner conscience Using and abusing you Your veins start their transformation To fiber optical masturbation Feeding your world with the realization You’ve become your perfect creation Running to nowhere You feel death is so clear The truth for you Is far too much to bear You can’t accept the monster created Once loved, now turned to hatred The intelligence got complicated You let greed blind your way Now you must pay Feel it flow Feel it grow Suffer in agony Breathe in me
Black Widow 04:43
I’m slowly going insane I can feel you take over my brain Like a torturous venom, you’re infecting Just to burn and cause more pain I see your dark intentions I smell your disease I’m left helpless, I can’t breathe But yet I keep fighting blindly Paralyzed, you leave me here to rot Come on black widow, show me what you’ve got Paralyzed, you leave me here to rot Come on black widow, show me what the fuck you’ve got I’m slowly going insane I can feel you take over my brain Your words are the web connected by your lies Inching ever closer, I don’t think you realize I won’t let you take me like this I may be vulnerable to you now But not for your fatal kiss I’ve gotta get out of this mess I won’t fall victim to your test I’ll stand above the rest
Unfair 05:16
I don’t give a damn if you choose to believe me or not Keep in mind of the game Show me what you’ve got Your one sided mind is really starting to bore me But just remember there are two sides to the story To think that you can only think of one thing It’s really starting to piss me off I’m tired of this messed up train ride you’re taking me on So this is where you get off These feelings of rage building up inside of me I’m losing control of my reality Why can’t you see this is not meant to be? I’m letting you go, pushing you away [Being used unfairly] Two sides to the story But you treated me so unfairly I’m dying here wishing the pain would just Go away Why couldn’t you see the damage you caused me? Eating me up inside This pain I cannot hide Do you not think that I cherished what we had? Do you not think that I remember all we had? Do you think I just threw it all away? Do you think I wanted to leave with nothing to say? So you really think I didn’t care? So you really think I didn’t mean it at all? So you really think I didn’t love? So you really think I didn’t give a good Goddamn? It’s so unfair Your complaining is killing me You never cared about me You can’t see past your jealousy You never respected me Stop clinging to what can never be You’re nothing to me You treated me so unfairly
Hello Father 04:23
Hello father, we meet again Tell me, how this will end I’m the martyr of your prophecies Setting my people free I’ve already seen what you’ve done to me When you’ve pushed me to my knees My breaking point was once so far Until you introduced me to the dark You once said to me That your prophet, he’ll wait for me But we’ve already danced this tango before Only to be burned again once more Come over here, my son I have something to tell you I’ll pray for you [Only now, I know it’s not true] Bare witness to your God Ask him for forgiveness Praise him, let him cleanse you [Only now, I know it’s not true] Hello father, we meet again Tell me, how this will end I gave you everything you asked for Yet all you made me do was repent Your false ideologies giving me hope When you knew nothing would ever come Just so you can remind me Of the powers that can set me free I’m done with all these lies I’m severing these ties I’ll release all these lives And show the world for what you are Come on bring on your war I’m a man with nothing to live for Send me to the depths below I’ll show you how far this rage will go Face your fury
The battle has started But there will be no winners here The only ones left Are the sinners you fear, us The blood is pumping Your adrenaline Your fill Feel it flow through your soul Ready, steady, kill We bring the fight to you It is what you wanted So step into the arena You have to slay to survive No turning back now Don’t start to regret now We applaud your stupidity Face your fury This is not Armageddon This is only the beginning We start the torment You’re bruised and breathless Start the commotion Leave all behind Leave them bruised Leave them breathless We will slay to survive With this law we will thrive We will slay to survive With this law we will abide Face your fury You wanna fight come and get it You wanna battle come and get it You want a war then come and get it But tell me are you ready to die?


Breathing The Machine is the long awaited follow up to Bullet of Reason's first release, Assault on Your Reckoning. Evolving from an angry younger self, Bullet of Reason has grown into a conceptualized artist, making every song on Breathing The Machine a seamless, flowing, electrically charged story of machines, religion, battles with his sanity and relationships.
