Lyrics

[I. Hold in Derision]

Pioneering, big breakthroughs
Proceeded by the opposition
Hold in derision all that’s new
Afraid to lose their own esteem

Scorn shall be directed at the genius
Represses subtle theories of the light
To the questions of life

Quantum physics lead us to
Answers to the great taboos
We create the world around us
God is every living soul

Science, spirituality
Will have to meet along the way and
We need new drifts, another view
Expand our grip on the cryptic soul

Scorn shall be directed at the genius
Represses subtle theories of the light
To the questions of life

Quantum physics lead us to
Answers to the great taboos
We create the world around us
God is every living soul

Hope is more than a postponed disappointment

Non intellegens, nil explicas
Videre nolens, nil capies
Non intellegens, nil explicas
Incognita non vides

Open your Sahasrara

[II. Children of the Light]

Light creates us all, pride will make us fall
Life is meaningful, life delights us all
Light creates us all, pride divides us all
Life is meaningful, the soul survives us all

Misled by science
Our wake up call
Conditioning cannot fool us ’till the end

Light creates us all, pride will make us fall
Life is meaningful, life delights us all
Light creates us all, pride divides us all
Life is meaningful, the soul survives us all

[III. Bardo Thödol]

Guide us safety through the gates of death

[IV. Paragons of Perfection]

Nothing here will be the same, I’ll see the world through different eyes and
I was given clarity and the wisdom I can’t deny
All that we can ever see until we leave this frail existence
Is just a shadow of reality, death is not the final instance

It’s not your time
You have to go back… back !
Now !
No, no, I don’t want to return,
Please let me stay here, don’t make me go back
Go back, you’ve got work to do

We’re not alone, we are all one

Nothing here will be the same, the smallest bit is as big as nature
Our limited capacities gives us trouble to comprehend
We are linked in every way and we’re strong as our weakest fragment
Every word that we convey is an act with consequences

[V. The Harsh Return]

Misled by science
Our wake up call
Conditioning cannot fool us ’till the end

Light creates us all, pride will make us fall
Life is meaningful, life delights us all
Light creates us all, pride divides us all
Life is meaningful, the soul survives us all
Greed will make us fall, light will bind us all
Greed will make us fall, light will bind us all

Translation

Non intellegens, nil explicas
Videre nolens, nil capies
Non intellegens, nil explicas
Incognita non vides
Lacking understanding, you explain nothing
Unwilling to see, you will grasp nothing
Lacking understanding, you excplain nothing
You do not see the unknown

(translation : source)
