Submitted by level LaClayne
1. Praise the Lowered (6:02)
Close your eyes, get ready…
One won't stop the flow.
Console your child…get him ready.
...One more don't let go.
Tonight…

It's you.

Calm your eyes…get em ready
One won't stop the flow
(soul coming around…in morning sun)
C'mon c'mon soul of mine….you're ready
One more don't let go
(soul coming around…the mourn tonight…)
Tonight, it's soda water
soda water, soda water boys…

Soda water so…

Ahh, soul of mine
Ahh, sober
Ahh sold the mind
Ahh I'm so sober
I know the way
Ahh…stoned
Ahh, so it ends
Ahh oh stone sober...

AH, GIMME THAT WINE!
GIMMEE THAT ACID!
AND I WANNA LOSE EVERYTHING THATS POLICING US, AND THEN EVERYTHING MUST BEGIN!
AND I WANNA DO heroin!
AND I WANNA DO CRACK cocaine!
AND I WANNA LOSE EVERYTHING BUT RELEASE…WHY DON'T YOU JUST:

SMOKE THAT fuckING WEED BOY, DRINK THE WINE…

WEED BOY, DRINK THE WINE…
WEED BOY, DRINK THE WINE...
BRING THE PAIN!
(All of it's all we are…thats all we are)
BRING THE PAIN!!!
WEED BOY, DRINK THE WINE…
WEED BOY, DRINK THE WINE
BRING THE PAIN!!!
WEED BOY, DRINK THE WINE…
WEED BOY, DRINK THE WINE...

Face yourself!
Send me to hell!
2. Stand (9:36)
Some may sever
Some may never...
Some may take their needs then go...
Some find heaven,
...In sevens and elevens
Some may chase the even flow.
But:
Some may never…some may never even know.

Some may leave us
…Take us or leave us.
Some must face their fears to grow.
Some mind heaven,
...Through sevens and elevens
Some must taste their heathen glow.
But:
Some may never,
Some of you will never even know…

...Ready?

I'VE COME FACE TO FACE WITH MYSELF, MAN.
SANCTIFY THE EARLY LIGHT JUST LIKE THE OLD MAN CAN, BOY!
CHANGE THE WORLD?? YOU BETTER CHANGE YOURSELF MAN, BOY…MAN
CHALLENGE THE MIND TO BE MORE LIKE THE ROLLING OCEAN MAN!

And BURN!

BURN!!!

Thou now behold us: The souls of those who anger overcame
Thou now behold us: The souls of those who anger overcame

SOME FIND JESUS
SOME MAY NEVER EVEN STAND!!!

STAND!

I WILL NOT, I WILL NOT GO!
(I want to know why we are metal…)
I WILL LET, I WILL LET GO!
I I I I I
(harmony, harmony…walk to war)

I STAND!!!

STAND!!!

I WILL LET GO! I WILL GO!!!

I fall now… I'm letting go.
I call tonight, I'm letting go.
I crawl…but now, I'm letting go.
I fall tonight…I'm letting go...
I'm letting go
I'm letting go
(I will let go babe…)

To thine own selves be true…show me
I'm not afraid...
I know myself…
SHOW YOURSELF!!

Do not pretend to know…there's NEVER a time but now
And I will never back down…DO YOU HEAR ME ?!?!?

I STAND!!!
STAND!!!
(no more hate, no more hate!!!)
STAND!!!

I WILL NOT, I WILL NOT GO!!!
(I want to know why we are metal…)
I WILL LET, I WILL LET GO!

I WILL LET GO!!

FALL OUT, THEN FALL BACK IN LINE…SHUT IT!!
3. Juular (3:46)
4. Planet of the Apes (10:59)
I know who I am today,
But who knows?
To forgive the lord… you don't DAMN FAMILY!
All I ever wanted was to BE TRUE for my WIFE and my KID.
And I will NEVER back down, and I RELEASE THE PAIN!!!

I SAY HAVE IT YOUR WAY!
I STAY HEAVY FOR MY GOD!
I SAY HAVE IT YOUR WAY…

…AND PAY!

Oh the mind goes!

And I've had to reassess the ways of the mind...
And I will never back down, for you are my CHILDREN'S FAMILY!
And I know, whats inside that power OH!
...have i forgiven the pain???

FORGIVE YOURSELF!!!

I SAY HAVE IT YOUR WAY
I STAY HEAVY FOR MY GOD
I SAY HAVE IT YOUR WAY…

PAY! no?

SORROW MAN!
SORROW MAN!
SORROW MAN!

I know the ways to love and truth!
(Tungsten body, glowing mind!)
And I realize they're coming through!
(Tungsten body, glowing mind!)
I know the way to love and truth my god…stay with me!

SORROW MAN!
SORROW MAN!
SORROW MAN!

(While we all have lots of bands who influence still…we all rip off Meshuggah!)

Well was I aware I was more uplifted by the enkindled smiling of the stars...
So I cannot find myself worthy.

Covered with scent vile they seem to be side by side, animals in a row.

I never (get your money's worth…) PAY PAY…I never know (get your money's worth) PAY NOW I do not agree EXISTENTIALLY!

I know father…I know. I know father…I know…I know…
…I know all about the blood!

YEAH! I let go my PREHISTORIC MENSA!

I SAY HAVE IT YOUR WAY!
I STAY HEAVY FOR MY GOD!
I SAY HAVE IT YOUR WAY!
I STAY HEAVY FOR MY GOD!
I SAY HAVE IT YOUR WAY!
I STAY HEAVY FOR MY GOD!
I SAY HAVE IT YOUR WAY!
I STAY HEAVY FOR MY GOD!

Worlds away, sun it glows...
Hearts fade to grey summer shows...
Worlds away, sun it glows...
Hearts fade to grey summer shows...

Way of ways, and in a way I'm heading toward the sky!
We never will die, we never know why...
Just never hold back now, and I'll be happier still!
Oh! Everybody will know, I am so happy now!
I've got a little boner!

STAY IN LINE, IN LINE WE STAY!
STRAY FROM THE NORM AND NEVER BE HEARD!
ALWAYS ABOVE, ALWAYS ALONE!
-REAFFIRM:
THIS IS THE PLANET OF THE APES!!!

(Jesus, Jihad…Jesus Jihad)

Show ourselves the beauty of our ways
…then maybe we would last.

HEY!
ARE WE OBSERVING?? ARE WE THE OBSERVED??
ARE WE DESERVING…OR ARE WE DESERVED?
IF WHAT WE OWE IS ALL WE KNOW!
THEN EVER IN THE PRESENCE OF EVENTS THAT CHANGE US ALL…AND THEN ARE GONE...
IF THEY KNOW, WHAT WE MAY NEVER KNOW…THEN LET THIS BE THE LESSON OF OUR WAYS!
(Jesus, Jihad…Jesus, Jihad…)

Please don't cry to me, cause what you believe is the cause of your own demise.
You need to be free in money and the worlds between us! Your words, THEY SAY THIS!
…Under the pleasant lines!

I'm sorry baby, I'm sworn to miles and miles of love.
I'm sorry baby...
I'm sworn to miles and miles of love.
I'm sorry baby…
baby…
MILES AND MILES OF LOVE!

ONE IS ALL CONNECTED, TUNGSTEN BODY GLOWING MIND!
ONE COLLECTIVE!
WILD DESIRE!

All the world's been waiting for the news!

SAVE ME YOUR HEART!

WE MUST TRUST IN OURSELVES MY FRIENDS!

ONE IS ALL CONNECTED! TUNGSTEN BODY GLOWING MIND!

(one is all, collective!)
(one is all, collective!)
(one is all, collective!)
(one is all, collective!)
(one is all, collective!)
5. Sumeria (6:37)
6. The Mighty Masturbator (16:28)
Ohh…all you know, go slow.
Twenty-five years at the factory child,
All for dying...
Wife and children now...
But you know? I've been working on a plan to save us all!
You know me… and I'm just staying late tonight my dear.
…Sleep well.

I'm home!

So you've come!
You know, you know…
I'm alright to fly!
…Only we both know, we never once were right!
Oh my lord…
Say goodnight to the boy, and then we EXPLODE with never one regret!

Oh my god, it's happening once again!
…Wasting my life with the worn designs.
...But it's time to go!
We're wasting away as people now.
…And the worlds seen it all before.
Sew the wire!

NOW, comes the time...
Where the night speaks to me, the words speak through me, NOW!
…comes the time! Hear the sounds, the sounds!
(Sounds are forming round me… sounds are forming round!)
Do you know? How many more days and nights of this I must handle??
Keep control…control!
…No one can see, they MUSTN'T see!
...But they will come to recognize my name!
'Cause I've finally… I've finally found a way to SAVE THE WORLD!

(oh I reeeal good at dat savin' da world thing dere…oh yeah, I got my special savin' the world boots on…)

Save the world, you fool, you child!
You can't ever save the world, you fool…you child!
You can't ever, ever celebrate!
You better change your mind!

Save the world, you fool…you child!
You can't ever…ever save the world, you fool…you child...
You can't ever, ever set aflame!
You better change!

(Save the spectacular world of tomorrow!!!)

Save the world, you fool…you child!
You can't ever…ever save the world, you fool, you child...
You can't ever, ever celebrate!
You better change!

Feelings…they're exaggerated!
But on another level I'm just…
GROOVY!

Oh yeah…smoooooooth
…Lookin' fine!

You better save your mind!

Maybe we could go to space?
Maybe we'll have more luck connecting…
Maybe the electromagnetic impulses will be on our side?

YES!
Love has conducted us unto one death!
And my conductor, with his spans extended, took of the earth…
And with his fists well filled, he threw it into those rapacious gullets!!!
THE TIME OF RECKONING IS BEYOND US!!!
THE TIME IS NOW!
We come to you: TO EXTEND OURSELVES FOR CONSIDERATION INTO THE INTERGALACTIC COMMUNITY!
We bring to you: THE PROCESS OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT!!!

BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE YOU WITH ME?!?!

NOW!!

Give it up…your world!
Give it up…your world!
Give it up…your world!
Give it up…your world!

I'VE SEEN ALL I HAVE SEEN
WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE!
I'VE SEEN ALL I HAVE SEEN
WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE!

We praise God!
He lives inside of our hearts!
We pray to God, he lives inside of our minds!!!
We praise God!!
He Lives inside of our hearts!!
WE PRAY TO GOD!!!

So you come around, and we know what you came for…
And we are one of mind, and we are home.

We praise ourselves!
We live inside of our minds!
We praise ourselves!
WE LIVE INSIDE OF OUR MINDS!!!

I'VE SEEN ALL I HAVE SEEN
WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE!
I'VE SEEN ALL I HAVE SEEN!

Now we come alive! And you've been over-time.
If we are one of mind, then we ARE God!!

WE PRAISE SATAN!
HE LIVES INSIDE OF OUR HEARTS!
WE PRAISE SATAN!
HE LIVES INSIDE OF OUR HEARTS!!!

We praise ourselves!
All the minds! Of all the times!

(What do you want with me?)

I want you to follow me, into the stars!
I want you to love me!

(I've fallen down now, and I won't get up)
(I've fallen down now, and I won't get up)

So many things to learn…MY FAMILY!

I'M TURNING BACK! I DON'T WANT TO! I'M TURNING AWAY FROM THE WORLD!
I'M TURNING BACK! I DON'T WANT TO! I'M TURNING AWAY FROM THE LIGHT!

YEAH!

...These are only equations, this is only a problem!

Stay forward!
Stay the morning coma…

WHAT DO YOU KNOW??

I know why among the heavens, I don't know why among the living..
I haven't a mind for those who give in...
…I don't know why? (Feelings I'm holding inside?) WHY??

CHILDHOOD PAIN!

I want you to follow me, into the stars…
Why don't we just leave?
...TO INFINITY, AND SURROUND!!

And now…hunger does what sorrow could never do…

FEED.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

(carnival ensues…)

Egads! Astounding! MY WORLDS!!
Ladies and gentlemen, I now see my life's purpose:

I AM THE MIGHTY MASTURBATOR!!!

AMEN.
7. Pandemic (3:29)
WANDERING SOUL OF MINE!
WANDERING IN TIME!
WANDERING SOUL OF MINE!

Ahh, we are so far gone!
I knew you once, what will you become?

I PROBABLY WOULD!
I PROBABLY WOULD!

Soon you will know where all the sinners go..
I sew you up and throw you away!

All is calm, all is well!
A LIFE WORTH WAITING FOR!
ALL is rooted, in INFINITE CHAOS!
CHOOSE YOUR PERSPECTIVE!!!

Pandemic (I farted!)
Pandemic (I farted!)

WE ARE ALL! ...HERE COMES THE TRUTH!
EGO EGO EGO!

I probably would….

JUST GET IT OUT!

YES!

WANDERING SOUL OF MINE!
WANDERING IN TIME!
WANDERING SOUL OF MINE!
8. Deconstruction (9:27)
'You could take anything! …a benign object of any sort…you could take a cheeseburger and deconstruct it to it's source!'

Cheeseburger!
Cheeseburger!
Cheeseburger!
Cheeseburger!
Cheeseburger!
Cheeseburger!
Cheeseburger!

Love meat!

I want to eat myself as the flesh of ancient gods!

What's the point of this? Where's the happiness we've been promised??

Drugs sex and money??? FINE.

OOOH, THEN I NEED TO GET MYSELF SOME GOOD drugS
THEN WHEN I GET THE MONEY…LADIES WILL ALL KNOW THAT I'M THE MAAAANNN…
'CAUSE I AIN'T GONNA BE QUESTING FOR sex IF I AN'T LIVIN' IN POVERTY AND I AN'T GOT NO DISEASE…
…In fact you could say I was a LOGICAL CHOICE!
WOOAH! Just look at HIM, and look at HER! HA!
Running in the circles and then opening the bar!

BAR'S CLOSED BOYS, I'M AN ARTIST!

So, with art without heart,
We will never know the songs!
(We will never…we will never…)
With art, without heart…
We will never know! we will NEVER KNOW!

'It's just terrifying! …There's nothing but reality! …An Infinite void of NOTHING! Where do we fit!? Where's the lines..???!!?? I can't even find my own mind!!! ...I CAN'T FIND!!!'

ENOUGH!!! I've had it up to here, and I am not afraid of fear!
ENOUGH!!! I've had it up to here,
...JUST GET IT OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM!!!!

Show me...

So you'd love to run from pain?
So you've gone and you've closed off from god.
…closed off from your true nature in 'I'.
Closed off from your own self!

NOW, on the border of the broken chasm, the infamy of man was stretched along.
Beholding as they descend, and the reign of man is FLEETING!
Enraptured in an illusion in which we all belong,
…And our purpose is acknowledgement of the void?!?
THEN VOID ON ME IN WAVEFORMS!!!

Did you ever had one of those…those days?

SHIT A BRICK!

(I know, why I know why I know I am…)
(I know, why I know why I know I am…)

Waveforms of waveforms, vibration waveform, way of the waveforms of vibration.

'Here it comes…SHOW ME!'

'Woah! good lord, it's a cheeseburger!!!'

'…a double!'

ALL BEEF PATTIES, PICKLES ONIONS ON A SESAME SEED BUN!
ALL BEEF PATTIES, PICKLES ONIONS ON A SESAME SEED BUN!
(Oh glorious cheeseburger…we bow to thee. The secrets of the universe are between the buns...)
ALL BEEF PATTIES, PICKLES ONIONS ON A SESAME SEED BUN,

CHEESEBURGER!!!

'But I don't eat the cheeseburgers guys, I'm a vegi-ma-tarian!'

Hit it!

BEER! BEER! BEER!

I would like to discuss something with you…
BULLSHIT!!!

Bullshit…bullshit…bullshit…bullshit…
IT'S ALL BULLSHIT!

(wanting 'I', wanting 'I'…)

Sorry, I'm sorry…
SO THE WORDS ARE COMING DOWN IN RAINBOWS!
…slow burn, THERE'S NO COVER!!!
Confused?? …I'M SO ASHAMED!!!
There's water... SEW WHEY!

FIRE!!!

CLOUDS FORM OVER THE RAINBOWS OVER TIME!

'oh we're not finished yet are we…?'

'scuze me…ok…GO!

YOU'RE IN GOD!

bleauughurgglllagggll!!!!

TAKE YOUR TIME,
TAKE YOUR TIME,
ENJOY THE RIDE...
ALL WE ARE!!!

I AM FREE HOW ABOUT YOU?
9. Poltergeist (4:25)
Let's finish this!!!

NOW, we FALL APART at the SEAMS, then see that NOTHING'S CHANGED!
THIS LIFE LIES!
Oh my god knows!
That everybody wants to be the NEXT ONE TO BOW!
You'd let your MOTHER FALL ON DOWN!
Do my eyes deceive me?? DO MY EARS BELIEVE ME???

ONE GOD GREATER THAN ALL RELIGION!

GIVE IT TO!!!

I HAVE NO TIME!!

so I say:
DIE!! POLTERGEIST!
DIE!
POLTERGEIST!
DIE!
POLTERGEIST!
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)
DIE!
POLTERGEIST!
I HAVE NEVER KNOWN YOUR WAR!
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)

Now we come to the end!

DIE!
POLTERGEIST!
DIE!
POLTERGEIST!
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)
GIVE UNTO ME! (Wait!)

I AM RIGHT HERE, AND I AM NOT FRIGHTENED…ARE WE CLEAR?? ARE WE???
YOU NEVER COME ROUND, YOU WILL NOT BE WELCOME, YOU WILL NOT!!!
YOU HAVE BEEN VANQUISHED, LET GO!!!
I'VE CONQUERED MY SOUL!
VANQUISHED…NOW GO!!!!
EXORCISE YOURSELF!

AND STAND FOR WHAT YOU TRULY BELIEVE IN!

Now!
We all know the peace of mind that comes from the fight!
(FIGHT!)
NOW!
WE STAND TALL FOREVER AND SEEK THE ONE TRUE LIGHT!

SAY IT TO THE WORLD!

So we've arrived, no one depends on me.
So, with forces far from gone??
No way! NO WAY! NO WAY! NO WAY!

THERE'S GLORY TO THE BRAVE!!

GLORY TO THE BRAVE!!

STAND!!!!!!
