The Alpha States are an electronic music project, born among some of the "Violent Bop Generator" members. This new project aims to perform good electronic music, from Trance to pure research. Its members declare to hate limitations and strongly want to gain a very important musical role in our society. The name of The Alpha States derives from a futuristic vision: the Political States arising from the failures of the modern man, a utopian social perfection so high that it may become real (perhaps) just after a destruction of the existing schemes (see song "Violentiaak "). The assonance of the name with dream induction gets the previous concept stronger: the dream of a utopian society.

SOLITUDE STANDING - lyrics
 
Solitude stands by the window
She turns her head as I walk in the room
I can see by her eyes she's been waiting
Standing in the slant of the late afternoon
 
And she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split with a flower with a flame
 
Solitude stands in the doorway
And I'm struck once again by her black silhouette
By her long cool stare and her silence
I suddenly remember each time we've met
 
And she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split with a flower with a flame
 
And she says "I've come to set a twisted thing straight"
And she says "I've come to lighten this dark heart"
And she takes my wrist, I feel her imprint of fear
And I say "I've never thought of finding you here"
 
I turn to the crowd as they're watching
They're sitting all together in the dark in the warm
I wanted to be in there among them
I see how their eyes are gathered into one
 
And then she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split with a flower with a flame
 
And she says "I've come to set a twisted thing straight"
And she says "l've come to lighten this dark heart"
And she takes my wrist, I feel her imprint of fear
And I say "I've never thought of finding you here"
 
Solitude stands in the doorway
And I'm struck once again by her black silhouette
By her long cool stare and her silence
I suddenly remember each time we've met
 
And she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split with a flower with a flame
