"Termination" as written by and Erik Braunn....
Fly blue sky, voices keep calling,
Bidding me welcome. why maiden land,
Luring me closer, forbiden land.

And as I'm standing closer,
Those natives step beyond.

Release the mortal patterns,
My mind I post beyond.

Spinning in circles,
Miracles happen,
As lower life life shows me in to my doom,
Spirit will striken,
The end will come soon.

This is termination,
The outcome of your life.

    General CommentThis is a difficult song to hear the lyrics clearly, and I don't think that the lyrics kindly submitted by Metallic slayer are actually correct. I'll submit my version shortly for scrutiny.
    It's also curious that the pronunciation Iron Butterfly used is more like 'terminition' than 'termination'. Don't know what was going on there.
    For me, it's a fascinating account of approaching death and a release beyond, ending with a short ambient passage that was truly ahead of its time.
    Musically it is a splicing together of some seemingly unrelated sections, but the mystery of the text strangely pulls it together.

    General CommentOK, here's my go at the lyrics:


    Flying through the skies, voices keep calling,
    Bidding me welcome. White maiden lands,
    Hurried me closer, forbidden land.

    And as I scanned in closer,
    Those [??? step?] beyond.

    Released from mortal patterns,
    My mind out goes beyond.

    Spinning in circles,
    Miracles happen,
    As Lorelei shores, lead (me?) to my doom,
    Fear has been stricken,
    The end will come soon.

    This is termination,
    The outcome of your life.

    The critical change is the line "As Lorelei shores, lead (me?) to my doom". This may be a long shot but have a look at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…
    and see if you can find a connection. Open to feedback.

    General CommentObviously about death, or at least mortality.

    The last line; "This is termination. The outcome of your life." is quite a depressing view on what life becomes for everyone from all walks of life and of all achievements.
