Other Slices Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Stradivarius
1. Blow Up Voodoo Doll (1:50)
[Instrumental]
2. False Illumination (3:43)
From whence you came shall you return
From the flames from which you were born.
The deception in your rotten hearts
Dooming the young to mental castration.

Led like sheep through a series of malignant trials and tests,
Leaving the meek amongst the flock to rot.
Fed with sanitised gruel 'til they can sense nothing but your stagnation.

And still there's no refuge, the cogs keep on turning,
Nothing to halt the march of this cancerous machine,
Save for you and me.

Our love is not enough to change the world
Or destroy the tumor at its source.

Throwing caution to the wind,
Poisoning all that's sacred,
Feasting on the souls of the young,
You pray on the weak with false illumination.

Mis-diagnosis with nebulous sicknesses
Serves to leave our ruined minds in fits of hypochondria .
How can we grow? How can we see?
How can we find a truth that's relevant with misdirection prevelant in all there is?

With these constraints we're nothing more than slaves.
Bound and gagged and beat 'til we submit.
The burden lays on us to collectively be the change we want to see.

Throwing caution to the wind,
Poisoning all that's sacred,
Feasting on the souls of the young,
You pray on the weak with false illumination.

At the expense of intuition
You loose the dogs of war.
They bay for blood.
3. Nebulayer Cake (5:36)
The apex approaches,
A fleeting zenith of our collective creation.
Time goes unnoticed
As if like sand through our toes, each grain containing years.

And still we tread onwards,
Blissfully unaware of our temporal codification.

Our paradoxical nature unfurls
Revealing a map of the stars.
Together we can reconcile and create a triumvirate;
Our manifestations reaching to heaven.

A nebulous plane, time is no longer of essence.

Synchronistic movements behind the scenes
Urge us to weave a greater tapestry.
We sow the seeds of our very creation,
Growing brighter and stronger as they feed.

Our seeds they sprout into trees,
Our branches ancient and ageless.
Our leaves, they feed on our energy
And in return, we feed on them.

And still we tread onwards,
Blissfully unaware of our temporal codification.

As one, we grow.
As one, we bloom.
In this nebulayer cake.
4. The Siren's Song (7:05)
A schism appears
My identity fragments, leaving glimpses
In its wake of who I could've been and might yet be
Through the grey I see myself illuminate

I see a Siren in my dreams
She sings to me, her voice angelic
She brings to me glimpses of perfection
A previous life, idealised lies?
It's all the same to me.

And when all is said and done
Her voice still echoes in my ears
A ringing sound I cannot bury

Yet I feel torn by her ever present guiding hands
Do I reject this world and substitute my hatred for her love?

This schism it heals
A state of unity approaches
I yearn for transcendence
She shows me the door but I lack the key

She tells me stories
She tells me tales
She sings me songs of love
And songs of loss

She draws me to the water
And I wade in
Content to let the ocean
Take me where it will

I gaze upon her spirit
I see a face
It took all this time to realize
This face is mine

You look so familiar
5. Fractal Exam Sequence (6:37)
When you said you were lost
I couldn't help but feel
Like I had to find you

And rescue you
From the shadows that took you,
Lest you be consumed.

I don't need to be found,
These shadows are my blanket.
I'm wrapped up safe and sound.

I don't need your love
To guide my way home.
I'll be fine on my own.

This is not the way.
We can use our love to heal us both
I promise, I promise.

This is not the way.
We could have bliss if we wanted
If not for being foolish.

We could use our love to heal us both
I promise, I promise.

Why won't you let me in?
Your gaze leaves me cold,
I want to feel your warmth.

I'll hold you at arms length
As long as I need to,
'til I'm left well alone.

Why do you hide away?
Away from all that could be,
Away from all that is?

I'm not fit to love,
I'll only go and drag you down
Into the shadows where I lay.

This is not the way.
We can use our love to heal us both
I promise, I promise.

This is not the way.
We could have bliss if we wanted
If not for being foolish

We could use our love to heal us both
I promise, I promise.

Let me go,
Let me go,
Let me go,
I'm learning how to love.

Why won't you listen to me?
We could pass this fractal exam.
Why won't you listen to me?
We could bloom together.
6. A Dance With Dragons (4:21)
Ensconced in this dangerous game
In which we play our roles so rapturously,
Breathing flame upon the underlings
Lest they let fly their voices of dissent,
We shall stomp down with vigor this civil unrest.

And we shall tear
And we shall gnaw at them
And we shall breathe smoke
'Til there's nothing left but ashes.

Who do they think they are? A voice of reason in the dark?
Their treasonous words poison and burn everything they touch.
Through their dominance they destroy our world
Castrate our futures and subjugate our homes

We shall indulge no more
In this dance with dragons

They know not what they do.
They'd live in piss and shit if it weren't for us, it's true.
Yet they have the gall to question our reign.
They need our guiding light to save them from themselves.

We shall indulge no more
In this dance with dragons

With fire and water we find the balance.

So we await the flood.
So we await the flames.
We take peace in our duality, embrace our fall from grace
So we can rise again together like a phoenix from the ashes,
Eternally in balance and beauty.

We shall indulge forever
In this dance with dragons.
7. 4th Dimensional Obversation (2:47)
Space-time contorts and degenerates,
Cosmic fabric unwoven.
Perception of time disappears,
Dripping through my fingers into effervescent territories

They gaze at me through slitted eyes,
Hooded flesh, shadowed scales.
All hail our reptilian overlords
For they are here!!!

Chosen by the lizards
For ascension.
You will never leave
This state of 4th dimensional observation.

It's begun!
Trans-dimensional ascendance
Into 4th dimensional observation.
8. Cleansed (3:15)
I toe the line between the innocent and the guilty.
I tread the space not met between the light or the dark.
This path of the everyman.

I am society's backbone in times of need;
And times of caution, and times of hunger
For something more than fortune and fame: I seek enlightenment.
I denounce myself.

I am the blue collar worker. Nine to five; satisfied with all his worth.
I am the arrogant fuck, staring down at his empire.
It's never enough.
To bring us back to step one, erase everything down to zero, level off the playing field
May be seen as anarchy by some, but this discomfort is your freedom.
It's your freedom

I am Caesar and you are my slaves.
I am normality infected.
I seek to be the plague; infecting innocent cells with my impurities and sins.

To be truly free, to be truly right, to be truly pure: we must be reborn.
To be truly wrong, to be truly cursed, to be too far gone: we must bring forth the the storm.
We must.
9. Genghis Tron, Come Home, We Miss You! (4:54)
[Instrumental]
10. The Great Migration (5:06)
[Instrumental]
11. Kow Otani's Castle in the Sky (7:19)
[I. The Wanderer]

Seven days and Seven nights
Of bitter, frenzied, dreamless sleep.
Convulsions grip my weakened frame,
Awakening in cold sweats

'Til I bring you back
I shall not rest, I shall not fold.
I'll use my love to guide me home.
Your eyes, like beacons, guide my way
To the castle in the sky.

So I tread hallowed ground,
Violate these sacred lands with my presence;
There is an evil in the air.

I shall not rest, I shall not fold.
I'll use my love to guide me home.
Your eyes, like beacons guide my way
To the castle in the sky.

[II. The Colossi]

[Instrumental]

[III. Betrayal Of The Wanderer]

My love, if only you'd return
So that I may gaze upon your eyes
One last time.

So I bury you beneath the sun.
Goodbye my love..
For my sins I've doomed us both
To this castle in the sky.
