"12 Hundred" as written by and Thomas Michael Schmitz Richard T Thomas....
Is there really anyone there
Fall on deaf ears all of my prayers

The mother of nothing
The mother of sin

The father of decadence within us
A brother of suffering inside

Why can't you look at me now
I hope you like what you've done to me

Drown in your misery

We need something new you made up
When you give up its never enough
Or this could be the day we rise

Uneased by the thought of me
Only through your suffering

Will you learn to forget

I wonder why who will survive
When we try

With their life

    General Commentferry you could be right, but I couldn't find anything to link the number 1200 to religion then I came across something interesting, the number 12 hundred appears in comparison to war in numerous history sites. Look at what the song is saying and you see that like a lot of songs that are vaguely about religion i has a lot of symbolism for warfare and violence also.

    ahh the things we look up when were still up at 5 in the morning

    General CommentLike most of the songs on the new album, the music is good but the lyrics took a huge hit with J Mann's absence.

    General CommentConsider the opening to this song. It's a notification that he has reached out to voice himself, and found nothing in correspondance. The next set of lyrics describes what you might call a Disian or netherworld type references different embodiments of Satan.

    Now, most people like to jump the gun here and say, "Ooh, they're blasting at religion!" or "OMG, they're Satanic!" Not the case. It's a mere statement of feeling hollow and empty inside. Filled only by that abyss or evil that remains in "nothingness"

    This was obviously done by malicious intent of another, whether it was a passive or agressive attack on persona, it destroyed what was left. Leaving them with nothing to live for, and prematurely dead. Now all they seek is repayment to all living, and to test them to be worthy to live.

    If you haven't caught on by now, watch the Saw trilogy. It's got a similar theme, they're just more upset about the case than the character "Jigsaw" is.

    General Commentmushroomhead has always had a great cult following of listeners and to me it honestly seems like hes calling for revolution amongst the public masses, and not some crazy radical thing he wants something new "i hope you like you like what you done to me, drown in your misery" saying everything is dull and the mundane will drown the fiber of your being

    also the new singer is amazing he almost sounds like the old one and does justice to everything mushroohead stands for

    General Commentlyrics are wrong in a few places, but still pretty good...

    "I hope you like what you've done to me
    Uneased by the thought of me
    Only through your suffering
    Will you learn to forget
    Will you learn to forgive
    What you've done to me"

    then this one is wrong
