From LT: At the time this was written, this song was the most controversial song we’d done to date. Stevo (drums) had come up with an idea that he’d worked out using a single string on a guitar, but like “Life is Black” he described it well enough for me to translate his ideas into the song he was hearing in his head. Vocally this was a radical departure from anything we’d ever done before as I used a vocal style very similar to 80s thrash bands like Kreator for the first time. A true classic thrash monster with touches of melodic metal that tied it back into our core style.

The song itself was a sci-fi / horror story about an alien-human hybrid that had freshly burst out of its host and was discovering the world for the first time. The first verse was from the perspective of the hospital staff who couldn’t believe their eyes and had no idea what had ripped open their emergency room patient. The second verse was from the perspective of the newborn creature, being afraid and not really understanding what was going on, but using telepathy it could read the horrified thoughts of the onlookers. By the time we get to the last verse, the creature had absorbed enough information from the thoughts of the onlookers and realised what it was, and the power it held. In its mind it was the next stage in human evolution and saw a day when mankind would be facing its final curtain.


I can't believe what I can see
A human? An alien? Something in between?
Strapped down screams, a white room red
Ripping flesh, her final breath

Chaos, fear, transfixed in place
Emerging form now taking shape
Trapped inside this deadly space
Death is here...

Is this a force of nature?
Can I relate to it, for...

I need your mind to guide me
I need your strength inside me
How could I be so blind?

Fear is sending me blind
I can't breathe inside
An infant's mind but so much more
Is reaching out to all

Horror, hatred, deep in shock
All thoughts are known to me
Can't comprehend what I've done wrong
Death I fear...

This is no force of nature
I can relate to it, for...

I want your mind to guide me
I want your strength inside me
How can fear be kind?


Join with me and you will see the key to human destiny
Release the pain and suffering, transforming bland society
Evolving form, evolving mind, I'll show you what you're meant to be
Beyond the realm of stagnant life, I offer you infinity!

Dripping blood the only sound
Silent stares from all around
Rising up the creature smiles
Its purpose realised

Reach within unknowing minds
Steal knowledge, strength, all life it finds
The final human chapter told
Now death is here!

There is contempt of nature
There's no relation here, 'cos...

I have your mind to guide me
And I have your strength inside me

I have your minds inside me
Leaving human life behind me
You're traumatised....
