The cover art sets the tone for the album perfectly, as does the shattered planet look of the disc itself. A science fiction feel is appropriate, although further analysis reveals much about the content of the lyrics. They aren’t actually fiction, depending on how you view the world today. Fans of David Icke and researchers of truth regarding the way the world REALLY is will instantly recognize the songs as observations on the current state of society and how we got to this point. Conspiracy veterans will also love the classic clip from Art Bell’s radio call in show. Not surprising in this age of mass media, the lyrical content will go grossly under appreciated and misunderstood. However, even if misunderstood, the metaphors stand on their own as creative and thought provoking, unlike most lyrics in this genre.

Read the lyrics to the rest of the songs, as pretty much every other good metal band, when you know the lyrics, the song slows down for you, to hear all the aspects of the song itself. Whereas before you're really just hearing the riffs and drums and growling/screaming.

I'm not sure if I buy the Reptilian deal, but anything is possible. At least this subject is getting covered in a different medium, maybe getting the word out to few more people?
