So first thing's first if you didn't know. That thing in the hearse is a fucking joke.
The truth of minds that dwell above is a plan to kill the dove.

But when they all appear to you, then they start to fade. Froze upon the path of all the names that we engrave
But closer to the moon, yeah across the ides of space, what if it only takes us back enough to save another day.

And so far now I've been wading in the waves of nescience, oh. Gonna try to ride the lightning on my own.
And never a demand to fill the soul, which brings me back to find the glue in a constant set of stones is a life all alone.

But when they all appear to you, then they start to fade. Froze upon the path of all the names that we engrave
Be careful what you do, oh and careful what you say. What if it only makes us laugh enough to brave another day.

Come father and know the use your sleeping son has had, his blood has dried upon the land, and still he's trying to wait for you.
This series of drones abused by the nescience in your head.

But when they all appear to you, then they start to fade. Froze upon the path of all the names that we engrave
But closer to the moon, yeah across the ides of space, what if it only takes us back enough to save another day.

Only through the fountainhead you'll find the truths of Vedic paradigm, the ones we know were never meant to sell.
To weather the bastions of infernal ties indeed will measure supernal highs, go and think as you may but the wind has filled the sails.

And oh, with all the demon from behind my mind there's no sleepless hells oh the deepest wells I've climbed up tooth and nail.
Oh under the tomb where every prince resides the soil sours, seeds of lies, that'll soon mature to counterpart Kal-El.

    General CommentThe line "But closer to the moon, yeah across the ides of space, what if it only takes us back enough to save another day." seems to be about rebirth, not necessarily on planet earth.

    Further into the song, he uses the word "nescience" several times. The word nescience means "1. Absence of knowledge or awareness; ignorance.
    2. Agnosticism." (thank you thefreedictionary.com). Ignorance is again a theme.

    "Gonna try to ride the lightning on my own" seems to suggest either suicide in eager anticipation of finding out what happens when you die (could be my own sick interpretation) or the more obvious, choosing to neither believe in or doubt God by the time of your death, so you're doing it alone.

    "And never a demand to fill the soul, which brings me back to find the glue in a constant set of stones is a life all alone." If you never choose something to believe in, your life will be empty. If there's nothing that speaks to your soul, than the "stones" that make up your life are held together by an empty "glue," which in this case I believe is a metaphor for the time we spend on earth.

    "Come father and know the use your sleeping son has had, his blood has dried upon the land, and still he's trying to wait for you.
    This series of drones abused by the nescience in your head." Okay, time to get all philosophical up in this bitch. You ready? "Father" is "God." "Sleeping Son" is the now deceased "Jesus." The "use" he's had is his convincing all those people that he's the "only" option for those to be saved. His "blood" was spilled on the cross and through his punishment, and has "dried," meaning that he's "stained" planet earth with this religion. When Jesus was crucified he called out to "God" for mercy, asking why he'd been forsaken..."Still he's trying to wait for you," because Jesus didn't see "God's" plan for him. One could also say that "God" used Jesus. The "drones" are "abused" by religion now, because it's brainwashed them into believing that their religion is the only "true" religion.

    No offense to any Christians with my interpretations.
