"Divinations" as written by and William Breen Kelliher Troy Jayson Sanders....
It's gone away, it's gone away, it's gone for good
Animal spirits come calling me home
Through the tunnels of brilliant light
The magnet of wisdom is pulling
Burrowing faster, the fabric of time

No escape
Binding spirits
No escape
Trapped in time space

Rapid descendants, the wormhole is empty
The center of khlysty surrounds me
The fire is dancing in a silvery sheet of breath
Black robe, necromancing
Summon the soul of the specter

No escape
Binding spirits
No escape
Trapped in time space

Fire in the eye
Realm of mystic majesty

No escape
Binding spirits
No escape
Trapped in time space

Fire in the eye
Realm of mystic majesty

    General CommentI saw the video for this track.
    Fucking amazing.
    I have to say it's a pretty humorous video.

    My InterpretationHere, the protagonist gets sucked into a wormhole and gets to the Khlysts, a russian sect:

    "The wormhole is empty
    The center of Khlysty surrounds me"



    and appears in a middle of a ritual, like he was summoned by the cult members:

    "The fire is dancing in the silvery sheet of breath
    Black robe
    Necromancing
    Summon the soul of the spectre"



    Note that the Khlyst were active in the late 17th, 18th, 19th and early 20th century, which coincides with the time Rasputin was around (1869 — 1916).

    General CommentFucking stupendous song right here. It's short, brilliant, and sums up what Mastodon has evolved into. Seems like the Blood & Thunder of Crack the Skye, but i haven't heard the album (yettt)

    could be a little into it, but if this is the opening track, it's definitely about the person's first experience out of body. into space and such.

    General CommentBandalido, as said before, you hit the nail on the head. In addition to this, in reference to Brann's sister's story, I think this song is her being so enraptured by hear thoughts of suicide that she hears her "animal spirits calling her home"

    No escape

    There's no escaping from her predicament or her "need" to kill herself.

    Fire in the eye

    Hatred, as well as determination

    Mystic realm of Majesty

    The uncertainty of death

    General Commentthis is about the czars tripping on magic mushrooms and recieving divinations from them. the black robe necromancing is him seeing the forthsite of the people who are trying to kill him because when your tripping the scariest things are the police and the undead.
