"The Higler" as written by and Mike Okubo Brandon Butler....
I have come to bear the worlds burden
A selfish unholy command
Calling towards the stars, an essential flow of blood
So they've come to take our pride
We will overcome their lie
We will overcome their lie

I will stand and fight
Grazing the pastures of the restless ones
Grazing the pastures of the restless ones

They command dominance in all, a force to obey
My brain unravels at my feet
Spilling what I know in defeat
My unconscious try is failing
Our existence in the fold
Demanding focus the internal message repeats
A mask to a septic being
(A mask, a mask)
Calling towards the stars, essential flow of blood
Calling towards the stars, Essential to us all

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song (along with Dark Passenger) is about Brandon's desire to kill a person. At least that's what it sounds like. I think he's saying this is an instinctual desire coming from within his (id).

    General CommentI have absolutely no idea what the song is about, but I'm assuming it's somehow connected to Kris Higler, the former Veil of Maya bassist who departed before this album.
