Pinnacle of evolution
The end of linear time
Progress or termination
Cosmic ray mutation

It's the question that burns inside
Will we perish or rise with the tide
When the waters of consequence
Comes rushing forth

For the lines on the fractal wave
Fits the course of history
They're created to work as one 'til the end

A dimensional shift
Leap in consciousness
Or a dire destiny
Asteroid fatality

It's the question that burns inside
Will we perish or rise with the tide
When the waters of consequence
Comes rushing forth

For the lines on the fractal wave
Fits the course of history
They're created to work as one 'til the end
At a time when terrestrial
And galactic grids align
The demise in 2012 realized

Pinnacle of evolution, the end of linear time
Progress or termination
Cosmic ray mutation
A dimensional shift, leap in consciousness
Or a dire destiny, asteroid fatality

Solo: Per
Solo: Jonas

For the lines on the fractal wave
Fits the course of history
They're created to work as one 'til the end
When the winter solstice comes
Actualizing the prophecy
The demise in 2012 realized

    General CommentThis song refers to all of the theories that surround the year 2012 and there are many out there not just McKenna's Novelty theory...although some of them are skeptical they are interesting to read. Particularly when NASA have confirmed that the sun changes it's poles in 2012...very interesting!

    General CommentThe Maya calender ends in 2012 and there are a lot of conspiracy theories focused on 2012 being "the end"... just theories though - nothing more IMO - unless the Maya's knew something that we don't.
    Nice song - great drumming.

    General CommentThis song is very important regarding many of the changes the Earth is undergoing. Which my response to it wont be taken lightly, and will be subject to critisizm.

    "Pinnacle of evolution
    the end of linear time
    progress or termination
    cosmic ray mutation"

    Upon the brink of 2012 mankind is said to be making a "Leap In Consciousness" We are going to "Evolve" as a species, not physically but spiritually. This will definetly be "the end of linear time" because time as we know it, is not linear.

    When he speaks of "progress or termination" its clear he is referring to the Ascension process of our evolution or be subject to cataclysmic events. Which one theory of 2012 is that an asteroid will collide with the Earth, which I don't believe will happen.

    "It's the question that burns inside
    Will we perish or rise with the tide
    When the waters of consequence
    Comes rushing forth"

    This is pretty straight forward. Will WE as a species "rise with the tide" ascend or be terminated because of the negative choices the world has made as a whole, hence

    "the waters of consequence"

    "A dimensional shift
    Leap in consciousness
    Or a dire destiny
    Asteroid fatality"

    This is straight forward as well in regards to what I've already stated. A dimensional shift which is the ascension process from our current 3rd density world to a 4th density world. Or we all die of an asteroid.

    So overall the demise of 2012 would be the demise of "the world as we know it" and the re-birth of a brand new beginning for mankind.

    This band, or atleast their lyrics are HIGHLY metaphysical and revolutionary.
    Simply genius.

    General Commentive had past life experiences and i know what they are reffering to (partly by memory) but they have no clue what the fuck they are talking about.these are your average humans that are projecting this great understanding that is an advertising scheme.DAVID BYRNE HAS BEEN SAYING THIS FOR YEARS.HIS MUSIC IS SO MUCH MORE SOPHISTICATED AND ORIGINAL.


    in short.....consumers have created this product and it shows
