"Mansion World" as written by and Troy Van Leeuven Elijah Blue Allman....
Once upon and once up high a dandy dream what means to die
What things to come as life rolls by the core of human equation
Tetragram presents a sign a sign to saviourize
Turn around I'd like to know you
Everywhere and every why the answer lay beyond the sky
Pass through the seven satellites, pass on to the place we got to
Learn to read, to rhyme, to could your primes and earthly education
Climb the tree of life in hopes to find the mid-space time dilation
On the Mansion world the role reverse, a slave becomes a master
On the mansion world the souls converse and life moves a little faster
We unify in the universe to arrive in the ever after
In the mansion world, i might like to know you
Naw and then it comes to mind i draw upon a long lost time (so don't ask me why the angels don't cry 'Cause you know what I've already told you)
Memories of the Urantia girls, they race around my brain in swirls (and you'll never ask me why the changes in the sky lead you upwards through the hole that you go through) son now you're off you've done your time
Prepare for divine invasion
As the spirit binds morontia minds ascend to the cosmic nation
New Urantia girl everything's below you

    General CommentThis is about the afterworld. It's beautiful in it's imagery. It can also have something to do with karma - "In a mansion world the roles reverse - the slave becomes the master". It could just have to do with everyone's different opinion of what they believe to be "heaven" (which is in an adjective form, not necessarily a place).

    General CommentI agree, this song is about the afterworld. According to the Book of Urantia, the next level of existence for the human soul is the "mansion world."

    However, there is indication in his lyrics that he does not mean for us to think of heaven in the adjective sense of the word, but most definately as a noun. That this "place we go to" is a physical world which we are reborn on.

    Elijah often refers to ancient cultures in his lyrics, such as the Hittites. I think that he believes an ancient concept of the afterlife which was a strong part of Sumerian, Babylonian, and Egyptian cultures and quite possibly had an influence on early Christian and Jewish Messianic beliefs. (However i can;t be certain, i would sure like to sit down with the man and pick his brain.) I'm pulling this from one line in this song; "faster than the seven sattelites." I'll try to explain as simply as possible as to why this is significant:

    Surely most reading this would of heard about theories of a "Planet X" or a final planet in our solar system that remains undiscovered. There is one theory which holds ground in the ancient religious beliefs of aforementioned peoples and their astronomical observations. This theory is that in passing nearby another solar system, our extremely early solar system (im talking like, before any kind of life was on earth) picked up a Brown Dwarf star. This star then settled into an eccentric elliptical orbit, much like a comet, in which it passes nearby earth every approx. 3600 to 3800 years. This brown dwarf, which was referred to as "Nibiru" by the sumerians and "Marduk" by the Babylonians, was always depicted as a winged disc or a bright orb with seven spheres. These are the planetoids which orbit the dark star (the seven sattelites). According to acient myth, one of these seven plentoids are inhabited by a race of superior beings. All of the above mentioned cultures believed that when one dies, their soul lays in wait here on earth for the return of this star in our skies so that they can be reincarnated on the inhabited planet as a divine being. The ancient symbol of Nibiru is also prevalent in Masonic art, and Deadsy definately use a lot of Masonic symbols (you can see the set square and dividers on their homepage, in the key to grammercy park video etc.)

    I hope all that makes sense. You can read more about Nibiru at darkstar1.co.uk/ and more about the book of Urantia at urantiabook.org/

    General CommentOk this song is actually about the book of Urantia...specifically the after life described in the Urantia book. They believe that when you die you go to these places called "mansion worlds", where begins the mid space time dilation, which is like this
    paradiseward" ascent that allows you to in a sense become one with the First Source and Center...God. It's really way more complicated than I just described but the Urantia book is an amazing philosphical text. It's one of the most profound things I've run across. If you've ever wondered about God, or the after-life, anyting...trust me it'll be in this book
