I'm mesmerized, a servant of the light, servant to the
red and blue, the green, yellow and white. They linger
in so lovingly to songs so gay i SCREAM!!! brighter
than the stars themselves and sweeter than ice cream.
the masses meld, the titans come, a crowd torn asunder
to a quivering mass, they smile down to me and devour
my face and hEAD!!!!! and everything - was washed
away, i was bathed in a light screaming i won't break!
WHITE!!!!! PUREST LIGHT!!! clean again but limited.
aahhgfhgkuuuuuuukgfffffkluklyfj!!!!!! illu min ated
hun gry smiles ca ter pillars and croc o diles light
bulb flash pulse bright night bright light- everyone's
fucked THINGS NEVER CHANGE just re-arrange like a
suicide it's do or die IT'S COMING DOWN AGAIN like a
grain of sand it's in your eye now you're blind

    General Commentfor some strange reason whenever i hear the "and everything - was washed away, i was bathed in a light screaming i won't break! WHITE!!!!! PUREST LIGHT!!! clean again but limited" part i always imagine a big guy smashing peasants with a large blunt object, and it's really cool because the smashes go with the keyboards(it reminds me of shrill crazy impacts on that part). it's quite amusing!

    General CommentThis song is about performing live. This is straight from Nathan. the song 'Octopus on Fire' is a "sequel" to this song.

    General CommentI can understand how some HORSE the band lyrics are easy to misinterpret, but I've been going through a few of them and it's the clearly spoken words that are getting fudged up. If you are going to post this as a reference for people to use, please try to be more accurate. I could be the one misinterpreting, but this is what I'm hearing....

    I'm mesmerized, a servant to the light
    I reached unto to the red and blue,
    The green, yellow and white.
    Lingering so lovingly to the song to kill a scream
    Brighter than stars themselves; sweeter than ice cream

    The masses meld
    The titans come
    This crowd torn asunder
    To a quivering mass
    They smile down at me; devour my face and head

    And ev-ery-thing
    Was washed away
    I stand to light
    I wont break

    This per-fect Light
    Clean A-gain


    Illuminated on hungry smiles
    Caterpillars and crocodiles


    Light Bulb
    Flash Pulse
    Bright Light
    Bright Night; everyone's fucked

    Light Bulb
    Flash Pulse
    Bright Light
    Bright Night; everyone's fucked

    Things never change
    Only re-arrange
    Like a suicide
    It's do or die
    Coming down A-gain
    Like a grain of sand
    Caught in your eye
    Now you're blind

    General Commenttypo edit on my last post:

    "I reached unto the red and blue"

    That part needed to be corrected, but everything else is my interpretation.
