[lyrics - Schuldiner, music - Schuldiner/Rozz]

Deep in your mind
There is another side
A morbid truth
One cannot hide
Unimaginable gore
Was your past time high
To hear people scream
To watch them die

Return back to the burial site
Face your dreams upon this night
Severed limbs not far away
Spirit past you now obey

Images of the forgotten past
Your first life revealed at last
Now you'll find to your surprise
All the corpses you left behind

A place you feel
You've been to before
Where life would turn
Right into gore
You dig deep down
Through the years of decay
The truth is revealed
You found your way

Return back to the burial site
Face your dreams upon this night
Severed limbs not far away
Spirit past you now obey

Images of the forgotten past
Your first life revealed at last
Now you'll find to your surprise
All the corpses you left behind

    General Commentthe song is obviously about a murder who takes a new identity and leaves his butchering in the past, yet he is haunted by his actions.

    General CommentThis song is about a man called Clive Staples Lewis who attempts to write an epic novel entitled "I Wish I Had A Garden Shed." Whilst writing this book he decides to put off the story for a while and becomes a rock star. He enters the Eurovision song contest with his song "Only You Can Prevent Wildfires" but unfortunately only gets second place. He is then approached by DJ Frog Juice who offers to remix the track for him with a solid beat. This remixed version fares much better and Mr. Lewis gets a number one. However he discovers that when played backwards the B-Side talks of DJ Frog Juice's hatred for Mr. Lewis. Mr. Lewis kills the DJ with a javelin and proceeds to only play the song in its original version at concerts. Whilst playing at Glastonbury he is lynched by the fans who prefer the remix and killed. The book is never published.
