Basically, a console like thing appeared, inputting loads of weird commands. It then went to a thingy which gave a preview of "Build The Cities".

Miles of fire
I'm losing ground
And in the flashes
My world comes crashing down
 
I'm left nowhere
No place to hide
Out in the open
Like ashes in the sky
 
I quit the illusion
I'm moving on
I'm moving on
I let the flames light up the future
 
Making empires of sound
And she would chase what's coming after
You burnt the bridges
To build the cities
 
I let the flames light up the future
Making empires of sound
And she would chase what's coming after
You burnt the bridges
To build the cities
