"Lethargica" as written by and Fredrik/kidman Thordendal....
The void clenches its determined jaws
A lethargic, careless motion to kill
Monstrous, prodigious, indifferent
Slow and deliberate its torturous skills

Its molars grind and shatter
Onerous, leaden bringers of hurt
Unhurried in its deadly intent
The undoer of all, dense and inert

Its design perfected through aeon's
Pure, immaculate, clean, homicidal god-machine

Calm, precise ambition
Untroubled by the roar of unending screams,
The droning blare of absolute doom
The down-pitched moan of collapsing dreams

Composed, cold, unconditional
Uncompromising till all is death
Extinction, ruin, its malicious cause
Till the last exhalation of human breath

    My Interpretationto me, this song is talking about the first word of the song, "void". It's about pure, empty, maddening nothingness. This sounds abstract, but again meshuggah is an abstract band. I think it could also be about "disfunction" in humans, evil, malice, and destruction in a broad sense. This is why it has "been perfected through aeons" because it is the darkness in human nature. It is very Eastern in its philosophy, and this cd Obzen is Eastern: the yin and yang, good and evil are permeated throughout the cd
