I know (who's behind the door...who's behind the door?)
Suddenly decide to listen to me,
Falling from the interior
Who's behind the door...who's behind the door?
Safety, (sexuality...falling away from me)
Suddenly decide to listen to me,
Thank you for being my medium
Who's behind the door... WHO'S BEHIND THE DOOR?
Reptile, the reptile in me
Animal, I'm an animal, and we're all the same,
ALL the same...
So I'm sending to you this Depth Charge
Known, into the unknown, seeking the unknown,
into the unknown depths
Suddenly decide to listen to me,
Thank you for the material
Who's behind the door? I'm behind the door!
Red line, the red line in me
Insect or animal, though we're not the same...
EVERYTHING'S THE SAME!!!
Known, into the unknown, seeking the unknown,
into the unknown depths!
It's ALL the same!!!
(that's all that we are...) MOTHER
(everything that we are...) FATHER
(This is all that you are...) SISTER
(every little thing that you are...) FAMILY
...Further!
...Further!
...Further!
...BRING IT ON!!!
Known, into the unknown, seeking the unknown,
into the unknown Depths
NO ANGER

    General CommentNot much of an idea about the meaning. It obviously has something to do with relationships, though.

    General CommentA depth charge is an explosive weapon used to attack submarines while they are underwater. I find it likely then that "depth charge" in this context implies a destruction of an internal/mental part of the song's character - given the context of the album "Accelerated Evolution," I believe it is the character's "ego" that is sending the depth charge to the reptile, or the part of us that is less "evolved," more animalistic, I assume in order to move beyond it so he can better "seek the unknown."

    It sounds like he pulled in a line from some kinda Christian evangelical teaching, which gives a further hint -
    "We must be (?) mindful that spiritual warfare (banishes?) the way of the flesh as well."
    The "flesh" and the "reptile" are likely being associated here - the "flesh" being the old, corrupted part of us that holds us back.

    "Redline... the redline in me"
    A redline refers to the max speed of a vehicle - so he's really pushing himself to further "evolve"
