On the terminal point
Of the cul-de-sac
Patients are dying
The horses are dazed
From the glare of stars
The starry wisdom
Owned by the Baron
And he’s got the cure

A drug by the name of World without end
A drug by the name of World without end
A drug by the name of World without end

Come and take this Carpe Diem!
World without end Carpe Diem!
You’ll be inventor Carpe Diem!
Invention, letter, earth, wind Carpe Diem!
Rhymed like the real Carpe Diem!
And real as the rhyme Carpe Diem!
Imagine this Baron Carpe Diem!
Inventor of rhymes Carpe Diem!

Imagine he was me and I was called Frankenstein
Imagine he was me and I was called Frankenstein
Imagine he was me and I was called Frankenstein

Carpe Diem!
Carpe Diem!
Carpe Diem!
Carpe Diem!

He was me and I was called Frankenstein
He was me and I was called Frankenstein
He was me and I was called Frankenstein
Frankenstein

World without end
Frankenstein
World without end
Frankenstein

World without end…World without end…World without end

World without end…World without end…World without end

World without end…World without end…World without end

World without end…World without end…World without end

World without end…World without end…World without end

    General CommentThis is the 8th song in the chronological order of the Imaginos saga. The songs are not in order on the album supposedly because the record company changed it. Anyway I don't really understand this song but it is supposed to be about the advancement of science which would eventually lead to more deaths in WWI and WWII, which the character Imaginos helps to bring about.

    General CommentWild track, wish it had been performed in concert at some point. Great chorus at the end...mesmerizing.

    General CommentFirst of all, this has got to be one of the wildest song titles ever. Second of all, the singer they got to do this song has a serious set of pipes.

    I think jhammond5611 is on to the song meaning. Just about everything off of Imaginos is really vague in a specific sense. I'm thinking that the line line "A drug by the name of world without end" is referring to science but for all I know it could be referring to the occult. Regardless, this song kicks all kind of ass. Imaginos was truly a singular album.

    BTW - That's Joe Satriani playing the solo.
