    Meshuggah- I (21:00)

    I - this fractal illusion burning away all structure toward the obscene
    I - to cleanse, to purge, to breach eternity and smother all life
    Blind - these mortal men of clay, divine and dying in their harnessed form
    I - this furnace of limitless hate. Bestial, pure

    The pendulum swings semi-attached to the centre of all
    I drug these minds into ruin and contempt - the acid smoke of burning souls

    This is an anomaly. Disabled. What is true?
    Not destined for incarceration. I crave my nothingness

    This illness that they whisper of, is that what makes me fail?
    I see through the eyes of the blind
    Not clear what it is to be this self I dread, the immense, the rabid I am
    The cogs turn, grinding away at ceaselessness - willing it to dust

    Re-desintegration. Convulse. A dead universe - Impales this twilight
    Fear aligns. Sadistic me. Meant to devour. Despair
    Sickened by the fact that immortality is not mine to have

    A snail along a straight razor - dividing itself through motion
    I charge this feeble product of god
    Laughing, drenched in the bile of millions
    Chewing on the stinking flesh of the crown of creation

    Solitude in splendor has been rivalled
    Shrouds stained with tarblack vomit
    Veiling the rotting eyes of the masses
    The strain of armageddon evolves

    Shifting through worlds from chaos, to chaos, to chaos
    I devour this manure of existence - infertile, barren, whole
    Rancid redeemer. Virulent deterioration of faith

    Sacrilege in persona. In truth, fundamentally twisted
    A witness to this savage carnage. A frenzy of animosity
    The will to mutilate. Dominant deviation
    The worship of the sick and degenerate will spread

    Conception derived from misconceptions
    The dimensionless features of truth
    Silence in the core of undoing
    Untie its knots and set it loose

    The inertia of my existence is clear
    Premutations of slaughtered worlds
    I alone will behold the dying sky
    A servant of eternity

    Progress finally, emergence of doom complete
    Here only to reverse the flow of life

    ps- The person who wrote the lyrics for this song (rythm guitarist) is not even native english. Its a second language and still they manage to do this.

    The song grows on you.... especially if its the first mesh song that your'e listening to. I had a similar thing with opeth. But now: Drapery Falls, Deliverance, Ghost of perdition, drapery falls, deliverance, gop, df, d, gop......etc

    I started liking thiss song about 2 months after first listening to it.

    I've heard it only twice so far, so I guess I'm not being fair to it (but its 21 mins long, you gotta take time specially out for it). I'll get back to you on this one.
