    Here are the lyrics. Consider them as "a big thank you" for downloading the album and not buying it...... Oh, the irony....

    - Asgeir

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    SPINNING
    Inner sense lost in a stream
    Another day faking control
    Alone, still living an introspective lie
    Cut adrift, in constant motion
    Roaming never ending oceans

    Bleeding poets cry, hands to the sky
    Their quest was one of futility
    I know man’s lost in cosmic settings of coincidence
    Just spinning, twisting, circling on...

    Manipulate my mind, I don’t mind
    the kind of lie to subdivide, petrify, dehumanize

    Manipulate your mind, would you mind
    the kind of lie to subdivide, petrify, dehumanize

    I will deny, I still deny, I will deny all
    These truths were all yours
    I refused them as mine

    Manipulate my mind, I don’t mind
    the kind of lie to subdivide, petrify, dehumanize

    Man manipulates man’s mind
    Should they mind the kind of lie
    to subdivide, petrify, dehumanize

    Spinning, twisting, circling on



    EXCESSIT
    Lost in an orbit ride,
    climb onto your highest mountain,
    find the fountain
    Wandering through shadows, on and on
    Climb on higher find the fountain

    Fall into spirals of condemnation
    And sacrifice your past to the fountain
    Know not how to get away from yourself

    Riding through the path of totality, surfing hypersonic jets
    Equation of time

    Tracking golden spirals, contained within primordial seeds
    Reincarnation of your self

    Fall into overdrive,
    climb onto your highest mountain,
    find the fountain
    Wandering through shadows, on and on in despair

    Your death shroud enters your mind,
    disguised as virginity
    Trapped in perverted rites

    Young child’s subverted mind
    Sheds its atmosphere
    Modus in rebus est



    MOVING SPIRIT
    Shallow minds tighten the grip
    Killing the last of the poets
    He fell down to his knees
    And drowned in the cold concrete flow

    I long for what’s untouched by man
    I will dismiss answers based on nothing-ground
    I forge dreams to uncoil

    I long for what’s untouched by man
    I even seek answers where they may not be found
    I roam these virgin soils

    Atlas shrugged, I could feel
    Clouds fell from the mourning sky
    They’re closing all too soon
    All too soon

    Leaders of crowds turned stale, unfit to move
    Pathetic freaks endorse dream deceivers
    Antique festered minds
    Reduced to mock desire

    Those who create should not corrupt their voice
    Hyped is the feeble imitator
    Seek and you will find
    Beauty to be denied

    Bleeding moving spirit
    Man bleed the moving spirit dry
    Bleed the moving spirit
    Man, they bleed the moving spirit… dry



    INSECT
    Bliss torn, transition incomplete
    As fall entombed their mother sphere
    Bent to the sky, artificial eye

    Crushed, nature moans, enlightened
    Drained was the heart of man
    Insects spawning, hybrids crawling
    In spinning cluster skies we’re soaring

    I’ve seen tomorrow’s sun die,
    into the darkened skies
    But as poisoned seeds and acid rot the earth
    We will fly into exile

    Oh, morituri te salutant
    Defier of the Night
    Fierce adulterers
    What’s the destination
    of their selfish search?

    Forced into spiral alterations
    The coils of pain
    Hybrids crawling,
    in spinning cluster skies we’re soaring
    They’ve got to reconcile
    Their cause is unpure
    The poor invest in stolen grace



    CLOUD CONSTRUCTOR
    Life as it seemed to the circling man
    As he gazed into discarded land
    Was a ride on a carousel of faith
    Then he flew away

    He travelled far through his worn out mind
    Through sorrow and pain, what had he gained?
    Still his dreams they could never take away
    So he flew into the sun again

    Emptiness struck as he realized
    There’s no answer to “who am I? what am I?”
    He then saw why men must construct for themselves
    A Cloud of Unknowing



    CONJURING COLLAPSE
    Conclude with error, idiosyncratic deeds
    Synthetic habitat
    Comprehension. Consciousness. All senses are astray
    Infected selfish greed

    Unpleasant frame of mind,
    reflections of what’s behind
    Wisdom breeds fragile minds

    Wake from this fantasy. Fear mendacious empathy
    Ecstatic biased sphere
    We are the plaintive race, constructors of predestined decay
    A paragon fails

    Force of fiction, faking formula of faith
    A chameleon with words
    Uncertain factors feed a mind so crystal clear
    When will this circle end?

    Mankind falls from what it breeds
    Cast reflections on its ego’s path
    Altered minds in altered settings, twisted mind
    Collapse into intensity, understand the face of man

    Everlasting hunt for truth,
    blinded by different views
    See through obstructive haze,
    and cleanse the human race!

    Mankind falls from what it breeds
    Conjuring collapse with this ego`s path
    Altered minds in altered settings made by man
    Collapse into intensity. Aftermath of thinking man



    ADAPTABILITY
    Words, all words worth nothing without you
    Mistaken meaning, a constantly spreading,
    dreaded dark disease
    Truth itself untrue to those who stop to think
    Fluently fluid, subjectively in sync

    Central ego, orbital estranged reality
    The remainder of a dream enter the dead

    Linguistic obstacles abort
    The thoughts behind
    distort all which was once clear like purest air

    Knotted tongues tied up by missing, mocking syllables
    Lacklustre soliloquies performed in
    solipsism’s shrines of shallow sentiments
    Look at my words, nothing besides remains

    All the wisdom, all our colossal thoughts
    Boundless but blind the grand idea astray
    No universal thought-patterns will apply
    Intentions abused and lost along the way

    Always in motion
    Circling a notion (of fixed unchangeability)
    Truth itself untrue to those who stop to think
    Fluently fluid, subjectively in sync

    Central ego, orbital estranged reality
    The remainder of a dream enter the dead



    FOUNTAINHEAD
    Crave for no more, nor the self that would
    Not even that which always is there
    Needy of naught, but to be constrained
    From any care and want of a selfish urge

    What is needed save strengthened will of man
    Fulfillment of all that is latent within
    What is to fear, what do they hate?
    How can they even bear to look at themselves
    Those who love to crawl?

    Near breaking point
    From the bows you’ve made
    Towards the constructed
    Deity’s power

    Reverence due,
    not to unseen mights
    nor lack of clarity,
    but to the well-known, familiar
    ever-present miracle of the

    I, Fountainhead of… progress

    How can anyone with serious integrity
    abandon all that’s left for me
    and still be free to seek what’s real?
    Where’s the logic thought,
    the one thing that should guide our way
    throughout this solitary state that we call life?

    Where’s the I, Fountainhead of progress?



    FROM "DEMO '96"/"A GATHERING"-COMPILATION:

    PURPOSE

    So be what you will, know what you are
    No worse a kind than animal man
    For who better snake than serpent itself?
    (Who knows of nothing else)

    Reveal to me now all that is real
    I will deny, I will deny all
    This truth may be yours
    I refuse it as mine

    Not for the ones who love the lies, the severed ties
    Mine’s a critical condition
    Lost hopes are carried away
    as though they never did stay
    Oh please, is there nothing, is there nothing left for those who yearn?

    Nothing to ease this pain, I can’t release this shame
    It’s all the same – I am still here

    Spoken for, occupied, not to be had
    I will deny, I will deny all
    This truth may be yours
    I refuse it as mine

    (I wait on)
    Fall from earth and land
    Through these hands
    Tracing time within this time within this time

    (I wait on)
    Fall from earth and land
    Through these hands
    Tracing time within this time within this time

    (I wait on)
    Nothing to ease this pain, I can’t release this shame
    (I wait on)
    This truth may be yours, I refuse it as mine
    (I wait on)
    I will deny, I will deny all
    (I wait on)
    Not for the ones who love the lies, the severed ties

    And of course you should upload the entire booklet jpg, also thanking the guys that didn't buy the cd.

    PS: And the tabs! why not? Of course, all hand made (no xerox copies), numbered and in a bag with a pick, a stick, a piece of tongue and a fingernail (for all the supportive fans) (of course, there will be only 10 copies of this edition, lars have a limited number of fingernails)

    So did I. I had to order it in as an import, which took about 6 weeks to arrive, but it was absolutely worth every cent and minute!

    When I bought Atheist - Elements, it was the last copy in the store :p

    Haha, That sucks. Mine didn't take very long to arrive. Also, it was the first CD I've ever bought without listening to first, and When I put on spinning for the first time, it literally blew me away, haha (Up to that point, the most technical music I was listening to was death, or maybe Atheist, so it suprised the shit out if me).

    In truth, I don't have the album yet. I'm waiting for a parcel with the CD from my friend from USA. It's just unreal to find it in my country.

    I wish some of the stores here would have even last copies of ANYTHING good. 90% of my CDs/DVDs were bought in the internet.. including A Skeptic's Universe. Thanks for posting the lyrics, though. I guess it could motivate some potential buyers into actually purchasing the CD..
