I have no fucking clue what that song is about, actually

"Forgive me father for I have sinned
I'm a child of the air, I'm a witch of the wind
And I'm still wide awake... Mary Jane

From the earth, up through the trees
I can hear her calling me
Her voice rides on the breeze
Oh, it's haunting me

No, I can't get away
No, there's no escape
If I know I'm going crazy
I must not be insane

Beware my friends, as you pass by
As you are now so once was I
As I am now so you must be
Prepare my friends to follow me

Forgive me father for I have sinned
I'm a child of the air, I'm a witch of the wind
Fingers gripped around my brain
No control, my mind is lame
I'm in the astral plane, and I'll never be the same
Never, never, never, never, never, never
Never, never, never

Beware my friends, as you pass by
As you are now so once was I
As I am now so you must be
Prepare my friends to follow me

It hurts so bad I can't breathe
Prepare to follow me"

From what I am hearing it's about witchcraft, unless it is some highly metaphorical mask for smoking marijuana. But lets face it, Dave isn't capable of anything poetic.

I'm on my third listen now. I think it's pretty good, and the worst song is the terrible remake of A Tout Le Monde. United Abominations is a pretty lame song too. I think the music is really good though in some parts. Overall I think its a pretty good album, definitely not terrible. I think the political nature of the album is making people dislike this album more because of Dave's bigmouth ideas... But theres some killer riffs, solos, and melodies here, and we shouldn't overlook that...

I agree with you there is some mindblowing leads by Drover, some great technical riffage, but the sum of all parts is what I really take in, and to me the overall outcome isn't very memorable.
