"A Distorted Utopia" as written by Michael Schleibaum, Paul Wayne Burnette, Michael Carrigan Theobald, John Henry and Ryan Littlefield Parrish....
It's a hollow hand
The pulls you into
An otherwordly land
So alluring and new
And the higher ground
Where you took your stand
Has now leveled down to the sand

A search for your last destination
You're already there
Where madness and bliss coexist
With the color that is
Filling the air


A distorted utopia sets in
With it brings a new beginning to every end
And it's all you've never had
And it's all you'll never know
You're feigning reality and coming down to slow


An ever changing map
A spiraled path
A picture of the past where
No time has elapsed
On another plane
Where you left yourself out of your body again

A search for your last destination
You're already there
Where madness and bliss coexist
With the color that is
Filling the air


A distorted utopia sets in
With it brings a new beginning to every end
And it's all you've never had
And it's all you'll never know
You're feigning reality and coming down to slow


Out of body out of mind
Entheogenic the divine
The divine

[solo]

Faced with an endless maze
Never ending race
Follow your reflection blindly through the blackened haze
Unrealistic it's so masochistic
A display of the self
And you're purged as flood washes over
Leaving you barren and cold

    General Commenthe tells us what it's about: "entheogenic, the divine." entheogens are psychedelic plants and other botanicals. it's about the beautiful and terrifying and blissful and confusing encounter with the timeless divine that is a psychedelic mushroom trip. love this band so much.
