"Metatron" as written by and Cedric/rodriguez Bixler....
Maybe I'll breakdown
Maybe I'll try
Circumvent inoculation
And I just want a cut
When will I breakdown
Lately I might
Unconnect the fascination
And I just want to touch

This is a list
They're my demands
Forget the question
Come on bring
Your nervous hands
You read it in my letter
Patience worth is dead
Suffocate the inkwell
I am legion said the pen
Her seraph snout
And cruciform limp
I blame the shrouding
Of a lesser man
My sigil contraptions
They work with
No crutches
Don't show me
The hinges
I am absent

She came to me
When she was
Pouring out of drool
Under sedation
Under vulgar multitudes
If you stay and try
To fix what you did
The sheets were wet from
All those messages
A million petitions
Her lock with no key
You forfeit the right to be believed
Full implant
Shapeless as a jewel
And I am stranded by eternal solitude

The vault that I call home
It falls beneath your palms
Before I crawl my out she calls
When you're standing
Right outside my window
Water thirsting
You're standing
Right outside my window
When will I drown

I'll never get a distance shot
Heard vesper pure
I never want to see your face
Until the word is made flesh
You'd better ask Metatron
Those flowers that withered away
In the pages of your book
For one day
They won't block your route

In the dead plot
You dream in
Ten go away
Ten born of pray
Ten go away

Folding wormholes
My time is riding
In the alphabet
My time is
Writing on the wall

Debase by your sentence
I fell in the trap
What door slid behind me
I can't see it anymore
When she sleeps as a witness
Got no better hands
Tied a single stutter
Do you speak my dialect
Accidents will happen
Keep your earnings to yourself
One sip under the table
Until it moves all by itself
Eye of Fatima
I've kept all your dreams
In a waking isolation
Of indictment

    General CommentHOLY HELL. I JUST PISSED MYSELF.

    This song is completely the most amazing thing I've ever heard. It's definitely still TMV, but it's somehow different. And it's a damn good different.

    My favorite new song.

    General CommentMetatron means "lesser Tetragrammaton", just for a little bit of backstory. Other than that, the second prechorus ('In the dead plot you dream in...') is one of the most powerfully performed moments in any song if you ask me.

    General CommentThis is absolutely my favorite song off of this new album. The first 4 songs are brilliant... But the second half leaves me a little disappointed with the exception of Ouroborous.

    General CommentScratch my last post. The first 5 and half of tourniquet man are top notch. Ouroborous and Adagez are highlights on the lesser second half in my opinion.

    General CommentPatience Worth is apparently a ghost that communicated with a woman, Pearl Curran, through an Ouija board. After a while though Patience could communicate with Curran through her mind. Curran would write down what Patience said and create books and poems.

    There are a few lines in this song that indicate it's about them...

    most appartent is -- You read it in my letter, “Patience worth is dead” -- which is a headline from Curran's obituary.

    General CommentI heard that Metatron means the voice of god like from dogma the film, however I haven't done any checking for myself, although moacsupreme's explain would still fit, being that tetragammatron means yahweh of god.

    General CommentGoofy I couldn't agree anymore. Although Soothsayer is starting to grow on me a little more.

    I'm really disappointed in Conjugal Burns as the ending track. Usually TMV really take it up a notch on the final track (Take the Veil). I like to end the album with Back up Against the Wall. It adds a little short kick and if you listen to the album in a loop it flows very well back into Aberinkula.
