"Soothsayer" as written by and Cedric/rodriguez Bixler....
My love becomes a mange
Dyeing autumn in its leaves
When it broke me in the branch
Where my antlers come to feed
And I swam a hundred days
In the bosom of this filth
Carry on this drought
As I tighten my belt

This deceit has no arms
Bended will, take what's yours

[Chorus]
Calling me she's calling me
This it may have come to falter
We have become these pleads

In a field of balding marble
Where the medicine awaits
The hourglass pokes at
The ribs of my cage
At half rations I'm finished
At half rations the minutes
All that happens was given
Coil and embrace

This deceit has no arms
Bended will, take what's yours

[Chorus]

    General CommentI was looking up what the congregation of people were saying at the end of the song, and I found a hymn that is used in the Middle East, which is roughly where this CD takes place. The hymn says...

    "Through Him, with Him, in Him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours Almighty Father, forever and ever. Amen"

    I looked further into this, and it said that this was similar to an "anaphora," which in Greek means "carrying up" as in "sacrificing to God". I'm thinking this song has to do with some type of sacrifice because of the hymn at the end of the song.

    Thank you wikipedia! haha

    General Commentthis is supposed to be the one song which is in fact an exact copy of what the ouija board told them.

    General CommentACTUALLY.... the lyric is supposed to go:

    "and i swam a hundred days
    in the bosom of this filth
    carry on this drought
    as i tighten this belt"

    ...its right in the liner notes of the CD....

    General CommentI was thinking the same thing that onethinwallaway was, and then decided i didn't give a shit because either way it is way more compelling than 99% of the music that i listen to. If they did make it up kudos to them for thinking something like that up.
