A place to discuss, interpret, and wonder about lyrical meanings in Cindergarden's music. :innocent:

I think this forum is a excellent place to explore the philosophical concepts behind the visual and audio symbols used in Cindergarden's albums. Most recently I sent Jaymie a fan message on Facebook regarding one of her latest releases titled: Transcendentala. " I interpreted the song as it being about a person finding love despite feeling hopeless, Maybe angels or some force of nature guiding a person to someone else?" It it no doubt that Jaymie herself channels supernatural forces and or angels when creating music.

The Clandestine Experiment seems to be a concept album about some sort of hypnosis or mind control of a person or a populace through both human scientific and supernatural forces.

Vision into fate
A poison in the mind
Now the devil's way
Future is designed

You're under a spell, a spell
You don't see it right now
You will

Invisible cords pull you along
The ways are contrived
The frequency is wrong
Reveal reveal reveal
Behind the picturesque

Mark you with a stain
Numb you for a price
Signal sending bane
Trance to help entice

Yes it's coming in clear
You must discharge the energy
A potion will do the trick
This vial will make you see

The ways are contrived
The frequency is wrong
Don't know who you are
Or where you belong

Accepting transmission, confusion
Violent pieces broadcast static
Channeling wash the brain
New data in the soul

Hahahahaha
Ahahahahaha

Hex is one of the best songs on Grim Confections. It feels connected to The Clandestine Experiment lyrically, as it's clearly about mind control, perhaps demonic possession through technology and magick.

Is the act of listening to the song 'accepting transmission'?

This is one of many Cindergarden songs I feel truly have some intense occult power to them.

Little Satan Star

Little Satan Star you are
Flames like angels touch your heart
Bliss guardians, seals of perfection
Will you find your phoenix redemption

Give me the strength to sacrifice
The demon god put me on ice
Little Satan star you are
Flames like angels touch your heart
Bliss guardians, seals of protection
Will you find your phoenix redemption

Beginning to end to end to begin again
Begin to end to end
Forever spreading the wings up

Little flowers in your hand
Little things you understand
Has it always been this way

Little Satan Star you are
Has it always been this way

Beautiful and one of the best on Architectures Of The Becoming. Above and beyond good and evil.

Transformed

We are the malformed
Transcended transformed
You and I dark with knowing
Blood just overflowing

We are the malformed
Transcended transformed
Heightened view information
Conscious reformation

We are the malformed

Transcended transformed
Passageway sole injection
Programmed to perfection

We are the malformed
Transcended transformed
Keeping our lost connection
Gateway through reflection


As the last song on The Clandestine Experiment these lyrics seem crucial to understanding the meaning behind the journey of an album that moves like a narrative rock opera.

"Gateway through reflection" tells me to remember and meditate on what just happened, a journey that has transformed the listener and gifted them with "heightened view information" to be "dark with knowing".

Things That Never Die. One of my favorites on The Clandestine Experiment.

Part 9 of 14 on this black gothic metal opera album captures a moment where the transformation truly takes hold with the"poison gift giving sight". Immortal beings. Hell up to the sky indeed.


Things That Never Die

Warmer in the cold one more moment left to hold

Kneeling in the snow vaguest feeling where to go

Naked as the past stripped apart and built to last

Hell up to the sky these are things that never die

Frozen on the page dripping with a silent rage

Born into the night poison gift giving sight

Turning all around though the walls and through the sound

Hell up to the sky these are things that never die


Cast away to lie among the living paradigm

Broken little wing holding every hidden thing

Playing every part nailed upon a wooden heart

Hell up to the sky these are things that never die

Choices have been made sharpening into a blade

Voices rise and fall answering in line the call

All the signs are clear Severin the time is near

Hell up to the sky these are things that never die

Glow the Light

"Glow the Light"

Lit up like an angel
Fallen embers, o holy sight
Resurrected once the wolves devoured
Compelling sparks into the night

(Chorus)
Electric Key turning in the sky
My skeleton dreams are violet bright
A devil’s mark
A vampire bite
Glow the light bringer tonight

I touched the unforgiven
They painted me with a sign
When I said I’m ready to be baptized
With dimethyltryptamine

(Chorus)…

Where do you think I’ve been?
I kissed the dawn against all odds
Who do you think you are?
I’ve been embraced by the demigods

I’m coming now…….

(Chorus)…

A devil’s mark , a vampire bite
Vampire bite, vampire bite
Glow the light


Meaning and Symbolism:
Newly released from the upcoming Revamped album. Wonderful, deeply psychedelic and spiritual lyrics. A new classic and addition to my favorite Cindergarden words.

"Electric key turning in the sky" is a reference to the Cindergarden key logo.
"baptized With dimethyltryptamine" DMT as a holy, divine psychedelic experience.
"I touched the unforgiven" "I’ve been embraced by the demigods" both refer to the same unforgiven demigods? the same ones who have left their "devil's mark" and "vampire bite"?
"Glow the light bringer tonight" Lucifer the light bringer angel?
