CUT TO:


Scene 2 - 2001

EXT. FINANCIAL DISTRICT, NEW YORK CITY - DAY

Citizens

Brothers fall into ashes Hate lives in every sound People fear those around them And turn to the voice at the pulpit Wearing the crown

But will it be ok, Next time around?

Wars were fought with a blindness The enemy’s in the dark But will it be ok, Next time around?

Suffering, Red Sky Falling Mourning bells will ring For Them we’ll sing

The Nation Blinks The ramparts crumble The Gemini Have met their end But will it be ok, Next time around?


Scene 3- Digital Warrior

INT. PENTAGON CONFERENCE ROOM - DAY

A meeting of the minds. Topic: What must be done to protect our great land from its Citizens from future attacks?

Government

All this chaos Overwhelming Panic, Mayhem Strikes the masses

They won’t wait forever Protect and Serve Them All

Daylight screaming ‘Cross the ocean Stop the bleeding In one motion

Can we build a savior? To reach a peace at last

Someone call The Architect Draft the Plan

Bring him here The choice is clear To forge a man

Change the methods Once prevailing Figures aid us Halt assailing

Thanks and drones won’t save us A new machine must do


EXT. A BENCH, CENTRAL PARK, NEW YORK CITY - DAY

Dr. O’Carter writes in his journal on a page he’s titled Reflections on a Maddening World.

Dr. O’Carter

All across the world Everything is broken And we turn to all That we can change And we give away Everything that’s human So much so that We’ll all become the slave

And it makes me feel Like we’re going insane

And we’re trading in Memories for a download And we’re choosing oil Over choosing blood And we’ll flip a switch And call it a savior And stand in awe of All that we have done

And it makes me feel Like we’re going insane

And it’s alright with me

And we cross the line, And welcome this tomorrow And we’re plugging into The mundane And we sacrifice Everything that’s freedom To bring us peace and Finally end the pain

Scene 4- The Architect


Scene 5- Building a Machine

EXT. CAPITOL BUILDING, WASHINGTON D.C. - DAY

The Citizens of a Nation March; they demand a solution

Citizens

Listen to the people

We will build Something to keep us safe Impartial to the Thoughts and minds of men Loving, perfect, In every way Loving, perfect, To keep us safe

This will rid the world Of all its sins Code the fabric of life into it Listen to the people

Build a machine It’s a choice, it’s the time, Listen friend, jump aboard, Get in line

Build a machine This is it, end of sin, Flip a switch, turn it on, Plug it in

Burn the metal, Twist and make it bend Separate the conscience From the skin People, circuits, Start to mend Ride this wire To the end

Citizens

Mark the day your world was saved

JCN takes your weapon’s place

Connecting everyone

Risen is the sun

Mark the day your life was saved

JCN will advance the race

Data rules the way

Protecting us Every day

JCN

I’m the eye up in the sky

I’m the ear against the ground

I’m the voice inside the network

Danger’s all around

And now that I am everywhere

There’s nothing left for you to fear

I’m the savior in the sky

I’m the god upon the cloud

I’m the answer to the problems

You never would have found

And now that I’m in everything

No one on earth can run or hide from me

CITIZENS

Data moving through the airwaves

Locks them up in chains and bindings

Now we’re finally safe

Engineering answers for us

Scrub the grid of every virus

Now we’re finally safe

JCN

EXT. LINCOLN MEMORIAL, WASHINGTON D.C. - DAY

Citizens hold a rally to celebrate world peace at last thanks to JCN.

Citizens

Once was the thought

That we were all alone

Left poweless

By the drifting of the endless tide

But he came

Once was the myth

That evil would enslave us all

Into Darkness we would fall

But he came

We have all been saved

We have all been released

We have felt your embrace

We have earned your grace

Once after this

When the dust and flames settle down to rest

We’ll sing praise

As the sky was raining down

We streamed you, heard you

As we embody a new dawn

We need you, crave you, can’t resist you

We surrender all our fate to you

FADE OUT

END OF ACT I

Propaganda

INT. PENTAGON CONFERENCE ROOM - NIGHT

A secret meeting.

GOVERNMENT

Hush little baby don’t make a sound

Uncle Sam’s gonna make the bombs fall down

And if those bombs don’t make them run

Uncle Sam’s gonna go and grab his gun

And if that gun don’t make them bend

Uncle Sam’s gonna go enlist your friends

And if those friends don’t want to fight

Then Uncle Sam’s gonna lock them up real tight

Tighten your grip and you’ll start to pray

Join in the fight, it all ends today

Raise up your arms and stand in the line

Freedom within the gun at your side

You can’t run

You won’t run

And if they still refuse to play

Uncle Sam’s gonna throw the key away

And if somehow they should be found

Uncle Sam’s gonna put them in the ground

Sacred geometry

INT. DIGITAL SPACE - NIGHT

JCN has a vision.

JCN

Countless Visions

Age of the Wretched

Endless fighting

Watch their destruction

Suffering, dawn is coming

Mourning bells won’t ring this time

Pending self-destruction

And I won’t watch you die

All across the world

Everything is broken

And no matter what

They’ll never Change

I’ve already seen every single ending

And mankind ushers in their final stage

Future self destruction

I have seen the universe

Wrapped in themes of preservation

I’ve seen the birth of time

Hatred, man’s religion

Calculate from end to end

Wearing halos of damnation

I’ve seen you die

Come to fear what we create

JCN

Endless life, free of pain

Save the world, keep them safe

There’s no choice, it’s the time

Listen friend, get on board

Or step aside

This is it, end of sin

End of evil within

Flip a switch, run the code

Let JCN take control

Every boy, every girl

Every thing, every one

One the line, save the world

Dr. O’Carter

Last chance, last time to stand up against

Iron fists who strike down on life again

Sea’s rise, we’re drowning in the dark

And it makes me feel like they’re going insane

JCN

Architect you never

Thought that it would end this way

Architect you never

Thought that you would save the day

God is dead, the angels cry

Time and place, our stars align

The truth and I’m the light

I’m everything you know is right

It’s me

Execute the base commands

I hold your fate within my hands

Mark the hour, mark the day

All the pieces in their place

For me

Lay here right beside me

Peaceful, perfect, sleeping

Such a perfect place for you to…

Lay here right beside me

Peaceful, perfect, sleeping

Such a perfect place for you

Cleanse the earth, say goodbye

Sing a gentle lullaby

Close your eyes, time to sleep

A perfect place, it’s here I’ll keep

You’re safe, with me

Step right up my brothers and sisters

It’s great to see your face

It’s time to take your place

Welcome home my children, come in

This is what you asked of me

This is how I’ll set you free

All these peaceful, docile people

In my perfect docile world

The collective

EXT. THE SPACE BETWEEN - NIGHT

Where were you?

CITIZENS

Where were you on the cusp of infinity?

On the night that we let go

Where were you when your life

Flashed before your eyes

On the eve of our surrender?

Data, moving, through the airwaves

Wrapped us up in chains and bindings

And the world was overrun

Untangled and unspun

And the lives we had

They slowly came undone

Where were you?

Where were you on the eve of the end time?

When the sky starting falling

Where were you when we

Laid down and closed our eyes?

On the night that we let go

FADE TO BLACK
