When the chants have cycled
How can I go wrong?
There will be no Eve for Adam
If your apples have gone, gone, gone, gone

I need, a brand new skin
Incarnated debts
Incarcerated when
The deeds are left to purchase

If you could see where I've been
You'd touch the hand that's touching sin
Entity ingredient
A mass of blackened scapes begins

Scipher is filled
Blanket of clots
Taking everything I've got, please let me
In, in, in, in

I need, a brand new skin
Incarnated debts
Incarcerated when
The deeds are left to purchase

If you could see where I've been
You'd touch the hand that's touching sin
Entity ingredient
A mass of blackened scapes begins

Follow me tonight
Follow me into oblivion
Follow me tonight
Follow me into oblivion

If you could see where I've been
You'd touch the hand that's touching sin
Entity ingredient
A mass of blackened scapes begins

I seem to hide in metal plates
Held together, alone don't wait
Hide with me, identity
Until we've passed due date

Can't spot, through the lens
Bleeding through your sanctuary

Intention, accident
Bleeding through your sanctuary...

Can't spot, through the lens.
Bleeding through your sanctuary...

Intention, accident--
Bleeding through your sanctuary...

Can't spot, through the lens.
Bleeding through your sanctuary...

Intention, accident--
Bleeding through your sanctuary...

Bleeding through your sanctuary...

    General CommentThat song is insane on the drums.
    It's so frantic.
    If I try to understand the lyrics, I'll just hurt my brain.

    General CommentBefore anyone asks: According to the Wiki, "Ilyena is a reference to Ilyena Vasilievna Mironov, which is the birth name of actress Helen Mirren."

    This said, this could easily be one songs they've done. It's impeccable, no doubt about it. I love the new album!! Holy god.

    General CommentMy favorite song off TBIG. Don't know what it's about yet, but I'm workin' on it.

    Also, I think "entity ingredients" is "entity, inbreed the ends." That's just what I hear.

    General CommentI seen them in concert on the 23rd of January, and before they played this song Cedric had a little speech. He said it was his favorite on the new record because it was the first time he had written the lyrics first, and the band came up with the music afterwards.
