"Format C: for cortex" lyrics question

Mental blindfolds on!
Early-on, the fascination intense
How to discern just where right belongs?
Something has got to give
These things i just don't want you to see
There's no need for you to start revolutions
I don't want you to talk to the minions
Just show me a brand-new face
An open mind against a dying race
Something has got to give
These things i just don't want you to hear
In the land of all ____
Something has got to give
These things i just don't want you to feel
Cannot fail in this the era of losers
Burn the shell of those that once held the torches
Cannot give you the senses anew
Nor will you know innocence again
Something has got to give
These things i just don't want you to know
In time all your questions will be answered
Not what you hoped for
Not what you dreamed!
All preconceptions crumble...
Format C: for cortex...
Something has got to give
These things i just don't want you to learn
Won't hold up to the standards you keep
Never came from the formative years
Just show me a brand-new mind
Keep in what you left behind
Something has got to give
These things i just don't want you to be...


Every lyrics page i've seen just skips that line. Does anyone know what Mikael whispers there?

Thanks.

I've wondered about that as well. The best I've been able to come up with is "In the land of all the same."

In the land of order? Though I suppose that wouldn't make much sense.

I have no idea, and I've also wondered that.

I have no idea.. I thought this was just some random wisper, not a meaningful sentence.

A-a, doesn't sound like he says 'order'. Could be "the same", though.

it's definitely a sentence, or at least part of one. I can hear "in the land of" very-clearly, and the next word seems to be 'all'...

I can only hear "in the land" very clearly.. but I guess it's just a random whisper sounding like a sentence...
