"The Heaviest Matter of the Universe" as written by Mario Duplantier, Joseph Duplantier, Jean Michel Labadie and Christian Andreu....
Lay down fall away
Lie awake
Just cannot move
My arms and legs
I’m paralyzed
Don’t recall how to free
Myself from this
In the heart of the dark
My face contorted
Don’t know how to reach the light
But I feel so bad
Like a freak in a cage

Open the door
Enter your heart
You go so far

Golden unworldly silence
Space flight at speed of light
I cross the clouds and colors
The black hole is calling me
I slide on the horizon
On the frontier not to cross
Black dwarf
Time’s gone distorted
In the heart of the dark
A whirl of light

Enter in
The realm of nothingness
I feel the cold, my eyes are shut
My fear is slowly dying
Light years from here
Are my thoughts and cages
I can hear their moan
But now a long deep breath
Is calling

Overtaking time
And now understanding space
I feel united
I do cross light
Feel the living
Here in the center
Stands the light of love
That never can be touched
From greater silence
Shall return

    General CommentThe title is "The Heaviest Matter OF the Universe," not "IN." Just so you know.

    General CommentAstralghost hit the nail on the head, without any doubt. The first time I actually paid attention to the lyrics of this song I just about freaked out. The few lines "Lay down fall away, Lie awake, Just cannot move, My arms and legs, I'm paralyzed" is talking about sleep paralysis (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…), which I have experienced many times, and projection only increasing its occurrence. Some people find astral projection through paralysis without looking for it, some people fine paralysis though practicing projection, or like me, wake up at 8ish years old and "Lie awake, Just cannot move, My arms and legs."

    "Golden unworldly silence"
    I don't think this line is using the word golden to describe silence but to describe the world itself. I've heard many people describe things as having a glow and some people describing it as gold. Silence on the other plane is another thing that is completely different from the silence we experience awake.

    "Space flight at speed of light"
    In Robert Monroe's book "Journeys Out of the Body" speaks about traveling from place to place, and describes the speed as being as quick as thought.

    ...I could match all of the lines up with something but I am too short on time.

    General CommentSo much unrecognized talent.


    I'm sure there's a deeper meaning, but I'm just seeing space travel; space and time travel.


    the new Mastodon CD (Crack the Skye) has that whole theme, interesting stuff.

    General CommentYeah I hope in the beginning he's mentioning sleep paralysis, that's the first thing I think of. It sucks trust me I have it usually when I take naps. I guess when I take a nap I barely go into sleep and i'll wake up half asleep not being able to move. The worst part is since your half asleep you'll start having hallucinations which, not being able to move your arms or legs scary as hell seeing shadows and things you imagine moving around. You feel like if you just let it happen you wont be able to breathe. Just gotta keep trying to roll over or move legs to wake up. Its some scary sht.

    General Commentthis song is clearly about smoking DMT. this drug is literally the most intense psychedelic drug known to man. when you take it, you close your eyes and dont move. it brings you to another fucking dimension, out of this universe. to most users, this overwhelms them with fear at first. but the dwarfs you hallucinate comfort you and let you know you are safe. this drug literally brings you to a place filled with love, plus colors and patterns that dont even exist in what we know as reality. everybody that uses DMT becomes a better person from it because they are stripped of their ego and much more loving than ever before.

    there are interesting videos on youtube of Joe Rogan, former host of Fear Factor, talking about DMT and how fascinating it really is

    General CommentLoL, I'm positive it has nothing to do with smoking DMT. If it follows the theme of the album, I'm pretty sure it's about getting sucked into an actual black hole and he is trying to figure a way out of it. Hence all the references like "black dwarf" which is technically a black hole, times gone distorted, which is supposed to theoretically get lost in a black hole along with light, face contorted, cause everything gets strethed in one.Plus the name of the song is a dead giveaway. The "heaviest matter of the universe" is only found in a black hole. Nothing to do with drugs.
