When the chants have cycled
How can I go wrong?
There will be no eve for adam
If your apples have gone, gone, gone, gone
I need a brand new skin
Incarnated debts
Incarcerated when the deeds are left to purchase

If you could see where I've been
You'd touch the hand that's touching sin
Entity ingredient
A mass of blackened scapes begins

Cypher is filled
With a blanket of clots
Taking everything I've got
Please let me in, in, in
I need a brand new skin
Incarnated debts
Incarcerated when the deeds are left to purchase

If you could see where I've been
You'd touch the hand that's touching sin
Entity ingredient
A mass of blackened scapes begins

Follow me tonight
Follow me into oblivion
Follow me tonight
Follow me into oblivion

If you could see where I've been
You'd touch the hand that's touching sin
Entity ingredient
A mass of blackened scapes begins
I seem to hide in metal plates
Held together alone don't wait
Hide with me identity
Until we've passed due date

Can't spot through the lens
Bleeding through your sanctuary
Intention accident
Bleeding through your sanctuary
Can't spot through the lens
Bleeding through your sanctuary
Intention accident
Bleeding through your sanctuary
Can't spot through the lens
Bleeding through your sanctuary
Intention accident
Bleeding through your sanctuary

    Unless Ilyena is Ilyen Therin Moerelle, in which the singer is her husband and murderer gone crazy, who is reincarnated in Rand AlThor later ... as the Dragon Reborn.

    I thought the same after reading a bit AcoustiSound...The one whos talkin through this lyrics cant be Omar cause i dont think he would tell a spirit to follow him into oblivion and stuf liek that, the spirit/demon is the one telling him...Ive also realised that in any song of this album when they reffer to "the lens", "my glass", or something related to words and numbers, hes reffering to the board.

    This song is definitely about contact with a Demon. This is made apparent by the phrase, "Please let me in, in, in./I need a brand new skin." This is of course referring to possession. The demon is asking for the user to follow him/her and allow for the possession to take place. Overall, very good song, just very strange.
