"Gelid Ascent" as written by and Kevin Barnes....
You are what parasites evolved from
Still an unanswered question
You are the refused energy from a superior form
Nothing that occurs to you is intended for your involvement
You're an irrelevant effect
Unavoidable, but of low influence
One last thing that you must understand
To be dead is to be confused, to be mistaken

You speak to me
Like the anguish of a child doused in flames
Oh, you speak to me
Like the stones bashing your skull and brain exposes

Oh, it's plain to see
200,000 years of viciousness
The violent heart dissolves
A ? weak, cracked-out species

You speak to me
Like your life was annihilated in space
You speak to me
In a voice that ?

What do you know?
You know nothing of the ?
The ? of abandonment
The dehumanized ? of love
You speak to me

    Lyric CorrectionYou are what parasites evolved from
    Still an unanswered question
    You are the refuse energy from a superior form
    ...
    Unavoidable, but of no influence
    One last thing you must understand
    To be dead is to be confused, to be mistaken

    You speak to me like the anguish of a child dosed in flames
    You speak to me like the stones that bash in his skull and brains exposed

    It's always been the same, 200 thousand years of viciousness
    The violent autism of our suborned, oblique, cracked out species
    You speak to me like the rifles that annihilated his face
    You speak to me in a voice so dry and calm and impassive yeah but really what do you know
    You know nothing of the impuissance of empathy, the straight wretchedness of abandonment
    The dehumanizing press of love
    Oh you speak to me

    General CommentThis song is God being frustrated with our inability to understand what he is doing. I am an atheist and I love this song.
