"Metanoia" as written by and Dave Rick Chris Xefos....
Bassinets, clarinets
Proletarion chariots
Polyunsaturated cinemaplexi
Glass cathedrals
Anxious daffodils
Falling off the window sill
But better still a sleeping pill L-tryptophan's illegal

Squirming unlearning
Swirling in a cloud of unknowing
Silence, violence
Swirling in a cloud of unknowing

Hellacool swimming pools
Corperate tools vestibules
Herring bones monotones
Macrocosmic snowcones
Stroking the ego
Wrapping it up in swaddling clothes
Anointing it with aluminum foil

Squirming unlearning
Swirling in a cloud of unknowing
Silence, violence
Swirling in a cloud of unknowing

Aluminum siding salesmen
Drowning in a sea of alliteration
Relentlessly searching for
Non existent clarity

Big fat bluffin' anguished muffin
Bad brain H.R. Puffinstuffin
Dirty socks, onobox
Goldilox and cream cheese
Drunken boat billy goat
Trapped in annete funnicello
Full of fish and roses and the posies

Squirming unlearning
Swirling in a cloud of unknowing
Silence, violence
Swirling in a cloud of unknowing

Quantum plumbing, the pineal gland
The sixth chakra, the seventh seal
Enveloping pelicans pecking at the crumbs
Of enlightenment
Retrograde planets plunging into the arms of america

    General Commentthis song to me atleast (and im pretty sure im right) is talking about lsd like a lot of the album. im supprised im the first one to say that this whole album is about using lsd to experience ego death. thats why you have a constant theme of revolving doors and spirals in the album its all referring to lsd tripping. when you trip lsd first you loose your control (first line of the song) then you realise yourself again (last line of the song). you feel new. thats why he says im not the same at the end.

    in my opinion this song was probably written durring the course of an lsd session
