Everyday dearest orchid find a way and prey and prey and prey
Behind the eye's of your sister's portrait
Wine wind and pray on the minds
Two dearest things
One man with a gun and one with an arm
It is a basic sensation, No it was a basic sensation, no it is a basic sensation
A fantasmata of her mother
Don't avoid the straightforward answers but take the cold one with the cold arms
Like a megaphone
Too painful and no harm
Maybe we have a second rate son
Superhuman, acknowledged absurd subhuman?
Provoke a frenzy in me my love, provoke a frenzy in me, provoke a frenzy in me my love
Unconsious and screwed by all
Does one expect an afterlife?
No, I only wish for the after thrice
Hand over with the devil's trident
And paint it the orchid because we have a second rate son
He's abrupt, rude, and undone
Deism at hand

Now you know
I won't go

    General CommentI love this song, it's beautiful in the way that in some parts it just feels like spoken verse and in others (like at the first 'one man with a gun and one with an arm')it feels like they're actually singing to the music. Alot of this sounds like a sort of spell, especially when they start chanting 'deism at hand' - it feels like they're trying to summon something. Cool song.

    General CommentThis is absolutely the most lyrically profound song i've heard in a long time. It's almost a Gertrude Stein-esque poem complimented by these amazing shifts in tonality and rhythm. The pulsing drone and deep bass line also make the song sound evermore dark and entrancing.

    I honestly think that this might be my favorite track of 2009.

    @zJacob: i've wondered the same thing. I thought "Been Lying" as well as "stay in line"

    General CommentI love this song so much, I wish I could find more meaning to the lyrics though. It all just looks random to me, although I'm sure there is something.

    Can anyone tell what the words they repeat over and over at the beginning are? It sounds like 'been lying' or 'in line' or something to me, but it's really hard to tell.
