E.M.P. from the mother and son
tore the digital down
dawned at the age of the innocent ones

the indigo children
the indigo children come
the indigo children
the indigo children come
the indigo children
the indigo children come
the indigo children
the indigo children come
the indigo children
the indigo children
when the indigo children come
the indigo children
when the indigo children come
the indigo children
when the indigo children come
the indigo children
when the indigo children come
the indigo children
when the indigo children come

E.M.P. from the mother and son
tore the digital down
dawned at the age of the innocent ones

the indigo children

analog timepiece, sky wide
sync to the ticker inside
move to the rhythm of the moon and tide

the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children

Sirius, Venus, and the lunar child
(get your life up untied)
giggle and the flames grow higher
dance in a circle around a central fire
(dance and laugh and love and learn. Grow higher)

the indigo children

wine, song, food and fire
clothes, shelter and seed
no more need for the old empire
(there they were to the empire)

the indigo children

Sirius, Venus, and the lunar child
giggle and the flames grow higher
dance in a circle around a central fire

the indigo children

wine, song, food and fire
clothes, shelter and seed
no more need for the old empire
(fare thee well to the empire)

the indigo children

the indigo children come
the indigo children
when the indigo children come
the indigo children
when the indigo children come
the indigo children
when the indigo children come
the indigo children
when the indigo children come
the indigo children
when the indigo children come
the indigo children
when the indigo children come
the indigo children
the indigo children

serious Venus and the lunar child
giggle and the flames grow higher
dance in a circle around a central fire

when the indigo children come

wine, song, food and fire
clothe, shelter and seed
no more need for the old empire
when the indigo children come

the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come
the indigo children come

the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children
the indigo children

    General Comment:Indigo children is a term used within the New Age movement to refer to children who are alleged to possess paranormal attributes such as the ability to read minds.

    you guys need to keep in mind that while crude and crass maynard and friends may be...they are also very into the supernatural and spirtuality. many of the symbols they have used on albums and shows through out the years have all had some sort of spiritual meaning.

    Song Meaning:Here's what I'm fairly certain is all the stuff about E.M.P, Venus and Sirius:

    E.M.P. has a double meaning for this song; both of those meanings are related and work together to create exceptionally rich meaning. What is E.M.P.?

    1. E.M.P. = Embden-Meyerhof pathway the series of enzymatic reactions in the anaerobic conversion of glucose to lactic acid, resulting in energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). For those of you who don't know, ATP is the chemical energy our bodies use to be alive.
    2. E.M.P = Electromagnetic Pulse:
    A.) A burst of electromagnetic radiation from an explosion (especially a nuclear explosion) or a suddenly fluctuating magnetic field, like those found on EARTH, THE SUN, and THE STARS. The resulting electric and magnetic fields may couple with electrical/electronic systems to influence current and voltage surges.
    B.) A broadband, high-intensity, short-duration burst of electromagnetic energy.

    Most of us know that the earth emits electromagnetic energy; the sun also emits electromagnetic energy- hence the disruption to electronics during a solar storm. Fewer of us know that Sirius, though invisible to the naked eye, emits high levels of electromagnetic energy as well. SETI has been using these electromagnetic pulses as a means of listening for intelligent communications from other planets for years.

    Even fewer of us know that electromagnetic fields have documented effects on our bodies; but it is absolutely true. Nasa's equipment is always specifically designed to withstand the effects of these electromagnetic pulses and to protect the bodies of astronauts from them. Electromagnetic fields affect the currents of energy that flow through our bodies, especially those used by the brain and the heart.

    There has been a marked increase in solar electromagnetic energy in this age. Scientists expect that trend to continue. From this perspective, it makes sense that eventually, we will have no need for electronic time-keepers because our bodies will be doing that for us. Our bodies already do keep time for us, i.e. circadian rhythm, but perhaps they will become more accurate and detailed as electromagnetic activity continues to increase.

    Excerpts from interesting websites:

    souledout.org/cosmology/highlights/siriushighlights/…
    Sirius A and Sirius B form a binary star system. They have a very eccentric orbit around each other, every 49.98 years. Although Sirius B is totally invisible to our naked eye, its effect on the electromagnetic fields of our Milky Way galaxy, solar system, planets, and the Earth itself are tremendous. Due to the magnetic properties and incredible density of Sirius B when it comes closest to Sirius A, it creates huge magnetic storms which cause the stars to exchange large amounts of highly charged particles that are injected into the galactic magnetic field of the Milky Way. This magnetic field has been documented by science to exist between Canis Major, Sirius and Aquila, the Eagle.

    lazaris.com/publibrary/…
    For several years, we have talked of this increase in electromagnetic energy. Its purpose: to augment imagination, creativity, intuition, and wisdom. Each of these components is an essential building block of the positive future of dreams. The electromagnetic energy stimulates the temporal lobes and triggers electrical and chemical reactions within the cerebrum and within the limbic brain. Such stimulation also triggers new frequencies of vibration around the hypothalamus gland and within the intense concentration of neurotransmitters and neuroreceptors within the midbrain.

    However, such energy needs to be utilized - consciously utilized. Unattended, this same electromagnetic energy can trigger tectonic activity - earthquakes and volcanoes. It can trigger seemingly attacking and unrelenting weather conditions - massive and excessive storms and bizarre weather conditions - as you have been experiencing over the last several years. Unattended, this electromagnetic activity can trigger emotional outbursts and violence. This, too, has been too evident and tragically painful in your current world.

    This same electromagnetic energy that can be so helpful in your growing, changing, and evolving can also precipitate so much tragedy, sadness, and sorrow. And this energy is increasing as the years of this decade unfold. The influx increases and accelerates.

    General Comment:the color of the third eye chakra is INDIGO, representing awareness and intellect

    and the chakra wich is beneeth the third eye is the throat chakra which symbolises communication, and remember that we live in the "information age", where communication is at its peak.

    time to evolve to the "indigo" stage, the stage of ultimate awareness.
    btw the last chakra, the crown chakra, is the one that connects us to a higher consciousness...so the indigo stage is not the final one.

    ok you can laugh at me now

    General Comment:I have read everyones opinion on the meaning of this song and I would say that with any good song you can find lyrics that have dual meanings but evyones seems to be right or close. I belive everyone agrees that is it defenitely a new age song.

    1. All previous EMP comments were on i belive but also here you have to remeber that at the base of new age everything has energy to include people so maybe at some point people are to reach christ like characteristics. maybe this is the EMP?
    2. The time analog piece could refer to two things also.
    The belief is that frequencies are emitted and these children are able to hear them and that is the voice that they hear in refrence also to the rythem of the moon and tide like a beautiful song.
    3. sirus venus are representations of the female spirtual role/mother of these children who are being taught that it is ok to have fun, be yourself and through this you will learn to grow together around the same center of life.
    4.Wine song food shelter ..... all these things are the things mother earth is telling the indigos that she can provide for their needs so they dont have to follow the old world ways.

    This was quick and general.

    General Comment:I don't like how some people think the indigos are ego-deluded nuts because honestly most of the indigos i meet are more empathetic than their peers and if there's one thing i believe justifies arrogance it's empathy. I love the axiom about how narcisist have none because honestly some of the best people i know are lightly narcisistic, they know they're special because they're more empathetic than others so they won't let the judgements of the world get them down because they are confident enough to know as eugene debs has pointed out that when great principles are involved the majority is wrong.

    My Opinion:why dig too deep with the 'crowley - moonchild' assumption?
    sirius and venus already have the connection of being the two brightest lights out in our night sky.
    and lunar children is already a pre-existing term often used of 'alien'/'there's something out there' enthusiasts among each other.
    and, I might of course be wrong on this, but I've always thought that he sings "emp from the mother and SUN" (as in mother earth) this would point towards solar flares/sunspots which are indeed, effect-wise, an e.m.p.

    They say the solar storms will come in 2010-2020. which is the same period when greg bear predicts the next generation of homo sapiens sapiens will start. (aka the indigo children will born. in masses not as single cases)
    any connection here, maybe?

    it seems there are many here who are self awareness enthusiasts and alternative thinkers.
    there's nothing wrong with that, but it seems you are trying to look too much into it to find something spiritual and life affirming in the lyrics just because they're written by J.M.K instead of reading what's actually there.

    remember, this is puscifer which is also the name he wrote cuntry boner under. not tool which he wrote 46&2 under.

    he's not really saying anything here that everybody hasn't read out of a philip k. dick book.

    please do not try to come up with new meanings for terms that already exist. when unsure, a quick look through the dictionary (or google if you must) is usually your best friend.

    I'm just poking holes here to get those thinking engines back and running. don't take offense.

    General Comment:this is probably the grooviest track on the cd,with a neat theme behind it. the entire album is awesome. i've had it on repeat since i opened it. I Will enlighten the little trick or treaters tomorrow evening with some righteous music . candy would be too much expected, this here will be a treat.

    General Comment:rather interesting song, and the research on indigo children intriguing. though it lacks evidence, it makes some sense, ties in with the children are the future aspect of things. the song itself is catchy.

    and Trexor is his normal delightful self, such a friggin optimist

    General Comment:well as annoying as TREXOR is i have to agree with him on this one. Something about this album is not complete. There are no legal battles left.....I want more TOOL. We better see an album a lot sooner this time.
