    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...
