"Vacuity" as written by Joseph Duplantier and Mario Duplantier....
The sickness of this world is destroying all the dreams
The fools are kings, tearing apart the soul
The race for complication, communicate reaction
The lack of heart of men, I grow distant from the core

Borrow this body for a lifetime, earthly material
My soul unraveled out of mental
The shell returns to dust

I focus on the present, concentrate on what I find
Accelerate the vision high beyond the curse of time
Bring light to my attention, the walls of vacuum fall
This force increases and tells me where to go

Follow, I enter my dimension, awakened heart for life
Enforce my senses understanding
I find the will to live straight

I feel the change, I see the vicious circle
Finally turned into a virtuous one
Having the whole world in my hands filled
Timelessness

Out of the frame I feel so vast I'm all around myself
Imaginative interaction
But I keep struggling inside to hold this always
Forever there

Is it the fear to fall in space that keeps us from understanding?
The only way to find the power is to look inside
Increase your fall on purpose and let this river flow
Now you hold this secret, appeared out of the vacuum of space

Remain in what you are, the center of your life
You made it to this point, no one can tell you how
You crawled and bled all the way but you were the only one
That was tearing your soul apart, you finally find yourself

    My Interpretationi think this song is about mans self destructing ways and how you and only you can really bring yourself out of your own misery, about how ones existence is only temporarily and how if you could only stop and look deep inside yourself maybe you can find many of the answers to your problems and live a fulfilling life.

    "Is it the fear to fall in space that keeps us from understanding
    The only way to find the power is to look inside
    Increase your fall on purpose and let this river flow
    Now you hold this secret appeared out of the vacuum of space"

    i think this means that sometimes when your in a negative stage in life you must dig deep into your thoughts or your past even if its difficult and painful, to increase your own downfall in order to hit a state of mind where ones true self might be there holding the answers you've been searching for all this time, saving you from yourself.

    "Remain in what you are, the center of your life
    You made it to this point no one can tell you how
    You crawled and bled all the way but you were the only one
    That was tearing your soul apart, you finally find yourself"

    i think this line is most forward, pretty much saying how even though the things around you might play a role in your negative ways the only one who really created your misery was yourself, and how once you take that deep self exploration journey you will finally have a true understanding of yourself that will lead to a more peaceful and positive state of mind.

    in a more personal level, this song has helped me more than i could have ever imagined! though its sometimes hard to believe that something as simple as closing your eyes, blocking yourself from everything for just a moment and looking deep inside ones self might have some sort of positive outcome, you might want to try it sometime to understand what this song was written, but thats just my take on it, i would love to see more posts here and read other peoples take on this song, hails to gojira for making music that is both rich in meaning and musically genius!

    My InterpretationAmazing song.

    Seems to be a song about realizing how fragile life is
    and how the obvious answers to life are overlooked because of fear.

    General CommentLove the riffs throughout this song ... gets the heading going no matter where I am (even at work and amid looks I get).

    Noticed no one has really touched on the title of the song "Vacuity" which is defined as "lack of thought/intelligence; or empty headed". Although Jorge gave a good review of the song I feel the title also plays a part in the interpretation of the song in that we can "think" we know "everyone", but in reality we really don't, and we especially lack the intelligence (in Gojira's opinion anyway) about what happiness really is. My two cents anyway ... Love the song and the music!!

    General CommentI think its about opiate (heroin) addiction. I am a (allegedly) current heroin addict, 9 years in the downward spiral, and I cannot put any other meaning to the parts;

    "Follow, I enter my dimensions, awakened heart of life
    Enforce my senses, I'm understanding
    I find the will to live straight

    I feel the change I see the vicious circle
    Finally turned into a virtuous one"

    He is talking about finally being clean from the vicious cycle of being empty-minded and empty of heart while using heroin.

    "Remain in what you are, the center of your life
    You made it to this point no one can tell you how
    You crawled and bled all the way but you were the only one
    That was tearing your soul apart, you finally find yourself"

    A lot of the rest, including the above verse, can be generally applied to any type of life struggles against ANYTHING we don't have any control over, which is pretty much everything.

    Suprised no one else thought of this lyrical meaning, what do ya all think?

    PS I am going to see Gojira and Mastodon on 4/28 in Seattle WA I am so bloody excited dude
