"Integral birth" as written by and Paul Masvidal Sean Reinert....
I touch the string though the harp may not sing
Still I dare the sky for sun sparks to guide
Down below there's a land
With an ominous hole
Deep in the sand of belief

A million doves
Orbit round the Earth with tears of blood
Kill the virgin, take Integral Birth

Rebirth
Rebirth
Rebirth

From the void, I am born into wave and particle
In the uncreative eye, emerging oracle

A million doves
Orbit round the Earth with tears of blood
Slay the dragon, take Integral Birth

Weep no more
Noble silence
Usher my way home

A million doves
Orbit round the Earth with tears of blood
Lie yourself, enraged we are the truth
Cast me down, the key and we are the truth
Time has come to take Integral Birth

Reborn
Reborn
Reborn

    Lyric CorrectionCorrected lyrics; listen to the Re-Traced version, these are definitely correct.

    I touch the string, though the harp may not sing
    Still I dig the sky for sun sparks to guide
    Down below there's a land with an ominous hole
    Dug deep in the sand of belief

    A million doves
    Orbit 'round the Earth with tears of blood
    Kill the virgin, take Integral Birth

    From the void, I am born into wave and particle
    In the uncreated light emerged an oracle

    A million doves
    Orbit round the Earth with tears of blood
    Slay the dragon, take Integral Birth

    Weep no more
    Noble silence, usher my way home

    A million doves
    Orbit 'round the Earth with tears that flood
    Line in sand erased, we are but one
    Cosmic cavalcade, we are but one
    Time has come, I'll take Integral Birth

    General CommentThis seems to be referring to the emergence of the universe from nothing, the void. Suffering comes from ignoring where we came from, believing in dualism. The lyrics are steeped in metaphor though, so I'm sure there's a lot more there.

    My OpinionFrom what I took from the lyrics, I'd say it is touching on Christianity, and then that our existance may not lie in the hands of any God, but rather in the universe's natural course of events.

    General CommentThis is such an awesome song!!!!! Paul's vocodor is so awesome and the background growling gives an edge. The acoustic version is also good but I some how feel like the guitar and the vocals are off, like they aren't going together in that version. Great song, and I agree with signpost's idea

    General CommentThis isn't so much about Christianity, this is about the human story. It starts off with the narrator looking at the cosmos for signs. He realizes that under the sands of time, there's the "ominous hole" of human beliefs long past, what humans did to find the same truth he is seeking now. The truth rebirths itself, or manifests itself differently. The doves weep in seeing how it manifested before in humans. Later he says, "weep no more, noble silence usher my way home". This is a tribute to meditation, the noble silence is bringing him home to truth, back to the origin, down that hole. In the end he realizes all the lines in the sand, all the cosmic sights, they are only part of a great truth. This "truth" is reborn and he claims it as those before him claimed theirs.

    My InterpretationI have my own interpretation for this song, would love it if that's what they really meant, I like it a lot!

    It refers to the birth of the universe and life on earth
    The touching of the strings might refer to us developing all sorts of theories to explain the universe though they are incorrect or incomplete (harp not singing) we still look at the universe and it's stars for guidance and direction (sun sparks)
    the doves are probably asteroids, the tears of blood are water ice (liquid of life - blood) on the asteroids, as current astrophysics suggests, the earth was hit millions of times during it's primal state by asteroids containing water hence a million doves that orbit round (not orbiting like a satellite but on a chance to collide, that's why they used "round") the earth.
    the killing of the virgin (earth in it's earliest form, with no water but ready to be "impregnated" with it) would be the asteroids colliding with earth providing water and the chance for life.
    From nothingness this universe appeared (from the void) bringing matter and energy (wave and particle).
    The uncreated light will be the matter turning into stars due to the forces (in the uncreated light emerged an oracle)
    we're all but one life form and one with the universe, then eventually life is created.

    General Commentanyone who owns the cd can flip to this page in the booklet for the correct lyrics as well as some visual clues, the strange being (not unlike the one on the cover, but appearing more etheral) seen peering over our galaxy.
    This song seems to be about an extra-dimensional being connecting with our universe (i touch the string though the harp may not sing is refering to this being entering the corporeal realm, interacting with or "touching" the one-dimensional string [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…]) . "still i dig the sky for sun sparks to guide" tells us that this being finds its way through our universe much like we would if we could.
    as mentioned above the land with the ominous hole is our galaxy (the hole being the black hole at its center). "from the void i am born into wave and particle" is explaining that the being takes a physical form comprised of constantly vibrating particles (as all particles are). "weep no more noble silence usher my way home" the being has silenced the universe, after manifesting physically it has made all matter a part of itself. "line in sand (sands of time.)we are but one cosmic cavalcade we are but one" the metaphysical line of space and time separating us from this being (possibly a sentient omnipresence, as is supported by it being born from "the void" it could exist in a non spacial dimension) is erased. this being seems to have merged our existence with its own, returning to the existential void uncomprehensible to you or i.
